I dont get how people enjoy this mode. You get hit from every which direction and cant even tell whats shooting you, hero ships get torn up pretty dang quickly, and to top it off, the defending team always seems at a disadvantage. Oh, and I forget, the freaking stuns are worse in this mode the Ga or Heroes, the y wing and Yoda stuns last way to long and shouldnt affect hero ships nearly as long as they do

  • Dice sure like their stuns :D
  • Im afraid this is a git gud situation.

    There are red arrows on your hud indicating the direction enemies are and if someone fires at you their arrow will be orange.

    Hero ships can last all game easily. Ill last.in poe or tallie the whole game.
  • Well if they actually continued support and development for starfighters and their modes, it would be lot more fun and less buggy. I got this game for the Starfighters and very dissatisfied that they haven't done more with it. So much potential abandoned.

    On the xbox European server it is impossible to git gud if you aren't already. And you know exactly why.

  • It depends a lot on the other players, with a fairly balanced game it can be good fun but with a party of "veteran players" spawn camping by running attack loops it's truly awful.

    I played in a lobby last night where the teams were balanced 12-10, so in theory not too bad. As part of the smaller team and after getting a few points, I entered the spawn, wipeout, respawn cycle and I had a look at the scoreboard screen. Half the opposing team were on 50+ kill streaks with ship levels in the 100s. The highest kill total on the small team was 4!. You could see new players joining the lobby, spawn in, get wiped, respawn, get wiped again and quit, all within the space of a minute.

    Of course you can get horribly unbalanced games in the other modes but if your poor trooper gets wiped out by the enemy repeatedly at least you'll be earning battlepoints for your sacrifice so there is some motivation to stick at it. With an unbalanced starfighter game there is little reason not to quit. Hence less and less players can be bothered with it. Personally I'd like to see the spawn points made more random and a similar Battlepoint progression to the other modes.

    Every time I try to play, LL, GD and BY are partied up. They always get the hero ships, so if you are on their team you won't get one. If you are on the other team you will struggle to get out of spawn zone before dying. That is my experience anyway.
  • I usually dont play SA alot but decided to have a go today and I think Its pretty fun, managed to finish top4 and I rarely play that mode. Its all about common sense, If youre getting shot as a hero you need to hide behind or under something far from all the chaos until you regenerate, Its easy to do that using the Scmitar.
  • The problem with the game mode is that high level players can deal more damage and take less

    Change your ping site/region within the options to USA virginia or Germany.

  • Actually, the times I played the mode it was just awesome - definitely one of the best aspects about this game. It even has less bugs and issues / imbalances as the main ground-based modes and is free of such "events" like Heroes unleashed

    I hate to say it. SA is the hardest mode to acclimate to. That also being said, play it more instead of complaining that you're not good at it. Most seasoned SA players still play this because it's the best mode.

    I know. Hey, doesn't really bother me, I prefer GA anyway. Just feel sorry for the noobs who want to learn the mode.
