BATTLE POINT EVENT: NO MATCH FOR A GOOD BLASTER

Start Time: September 20th - 00:01 CEST
End Time: September 22nd - 06:00 CEST

Last month we introduced a new event with "Elegant Weapons". This month, take Han Solo's advice and trust in your blaster with the "No Match for a Good Blaster" event. Blaster carrying heroes and villains will be showcased in the mode this weekend.

  • I don't know if we got a answer about Palpatine but will he be in this event?

    I think your answer is in this annoucement. Blaster carrying heroes only. Palpatine does not carry a blaster. So no Palpatine.

    True

    Gonna be slightly annoying in HvV not to be able to change your character on the villains side though
  • I'm suspicious about showcased

    What exactly DICE means with Blaster Heroes will be showcased?

    For reference:
    riuvyg7f74we.png

    Elegant Weapons event would feature only lightsaber wielders, whereas No Match For a Good Blaster event will showcase Blaster carrying heroes.

    I hope it does mean it'll be Blaster only heroes, and not some weird interpretation DICE comes up with
    Tired of BUGs?

    Well, they'll still exist.
    But visit the Rogue Bros Channel, there we document many BUGs and possible workarounds for them. There's also gameplay and other videos related to EA's Star Wars Battlefront (I & II)
  • It's not specified in this announcement, but this only pertains to HVV right? We can still be sabers in GA and CS?
  • This event actually sounds interesting.

    Will be nice to play with heroes and not have saber spam going on the whole time.

    Interesting event, I will try it, though I prefer saber combat and Palps should be saber villain.

    Chewy’s in, Palps is out

  • Sounds good to me. It'll be fun to play HvV without being constantly stuck to a lightsaber and unable to react, or being randomly flung off the map.

    It would be nice if they were less vague. It doesn’t mention what mode. If it’s just HvV then why is it called a “Battle Point” Event?

    Palps? Or no palps? @F8RGE

    no, Palpatine. He is just waiting and watching in the shadows during these events.
  • Palps? Or no palps? @F8RGE

    no, Palpatine. He is just waiting and watching in the shadows during these events.

    Lol yeah I guess so. He the only one left out of both events.

    Soon they'll release a event with no LS heros and the only DS hero is Palps

    That's ok. He's got empires to run and impressionable youths to corrupt.

    He should probably look into some face cream too.
  • This shall be interesting! Can't wait to get on, Friday it looks like

    But there is an objective... kill the enemy!!!😈😈😈

    Glad you like it. Seems pointless to me. Just a bunch of guys ganging up at spawn points. Never liked blast myself. Might be nice to have something else to do. I wasn't a fan of the target system, but I get bored even more quickly with the current version of hvv.

    Target system was god awful. To many people who exploited it(looking at you wall glitch users and Boba hiders). Maybe a king of the hill type event could be fun.

    Like I said, wasn't a big fan of the target system, but there are other objectives they could use. Current version is just boring and taking away player selections cant help.
  • This should be an interesting event, I'll give it a try if I have the time. Sounds like it could be fun. I'm a Saber main, but I don't mind using a good trusty blaster hero from time to time.
  • I will play a lot of heroes vs villains this weekend, blaster heroes are much fun to use and no stupid saber spam will make it even more enjoyable.

  • Gonna be awesome seeing the premades struggling to aim when they all cant pick the saber spam dream team on the light side.

    No one told the devs that Battle Points don't apply to HvV, like no one told them you can choose any hero in HvV, so locking the rotation to pt maps was a waste of time when they released the PT heroes.

  • Palps being left out of both events is dumb af oversight.

    They should have had him in the Light saber event and added "Force-wielding" heroes will only be available.
  • Make this available in GA at some point.

    Blaster only heroes would be great in GA.

    😂 They have to include Palpatine somehow

    And now he felt her, really felt her in the Force; He felt a bond, deeper and more intimate than he’d ever had before; and for a precious eternal instant he was her. . . 

    he was the beat of her heart and he was the motion of her lips. He was her soft words as though she spoke a prayer to the stars— I love you, Anakin. In life, and in death, we will always be one. I am yours

    Your premade doesn't include one Chewie, Boba, Han or Iden? Weird

  • Is there a possibility to get this event during a week as I and probably few can't play during weekends for a reason. :(

    I will not stop complaining until DICE update Leia's Hoth skin's sideburns and add some for Rey!!




  • Good thing I want to unlock the skins for Han and lando in the event

    wow yes
  • Looking forward to this even if it is just another event that restricts choices (could always set up 4v4 blaster only matches with 8 willing participants). The sabers are so bug filled and annoying to play against as a blaster that this should be a breath of fresh air, as blaster vs blaster contests are typically more due to skill than chance.

    Be interesting to see how the metagame plays out in pub lobbies. Things like Leia's shield and Lando smoke actually becoming useful tools. Boba being somewhat less of a factor as one can take aim at him without being thrown around and wailed on by saber heroes.

    I think Palpatine should stay an option so the darkside aren't locked into their intital pick.

  • What time is it hitting? I'm ready for this one
  • I'm very eager to see how this goes. I just played two matches and the explosives from the villains were overwhelming in both. Bossk's mines and bombs. Fett's rockets. Iden's alt fire. I haven't figured out how to deal with that yet.
  • Palps? Or no palps? @F8RGE

    no, Palpatine. He is just waiting and watching in the shadows during these events.

    So it’s going to be 4 v 3? Phasma, Iden and Boba: am I missing someone? 4th has to be Palps ?
  • Forgot about Bossk...
