    Thanks for ruining the Capital Supremacy and Galactic Assault for two days. Sure you can take tanks and fighters away for weekend but heroes too ? Stop restricting those two best modes in the game. Fast Spawn and things like those are ok.

    I agree, but its nice for a change every once in a while, and its only a weekend. Its not their fault, tons of people are always whining about vehicles and heroes for some reason.

  • Wish you had listened to everyone who liked the event and suggested NO reinforcements and add vehicles. But Thank You for a good weekend of no Hero advantages! I do love it.

    I know, a large scale Battlefront experience with NO heroes is a "strange reason" right? 😂

    Why are these events always restrictive? Why can't they just make it its own temporary game mode?

    These weekend events boots, unleashed, etc. are the reasons why I find some other game to play.

    I Agree.

    Yeah, especially since it is easier without heroes to tell if a reinforcement is imbalanced or not. So now you can one on one a droideka and clone commando to see if it's imbalanced, to see if one is more OP than the other i guess you could say. Plus i like GA without heroes, now i can be any reinforcement on a larger map, cause i think GA has bigger maps than CS, but anyhow, it feels more chill without having to worry about a hero dot on you're map that is slowly inching it's way toward you, when you are trying to get away, the other thing is it is also more chill since, whenever i'm a hero i often become very tense, when i'm trying not to die. So it's kinda nice, now that it's more chill.
  • Can you please stop the Weekend events? its often the only time you can play when you have a job and then you disable all heroes or allow 8 of them??? please don't

    This event is terrible. Please stop doing it.

    In that case Heroes Unleashed needs to go as well if they take Boots on the Ground away. Not fair to those of us who prefer Infantry gameplay if they were to remove this but keep Unleashed.

    I for one plan to be on as much as I can this weekend, this is the best event hands down. The game becomes (gasp) fun when heroes are gone.
  • This mode sucks! PLEASE turn it off early or give us one of the main modes to play that doesn't have these content restrictions! This is the absolute worst mode of all time!

    Yes they can take both away and make separate mode for them. That way they cant ruin vanilla modes.

    Next time it would be nice to still have 2-4 heroes per team BUT, once killed, they be gone for the rest of the match. And who gets to have them? Maybe introduce the random hologram from SWB 2015 to spice things up a little and let everyone have a go at one point or another. That would be compelling and exciting, come on.

    Slight amendment to your suggestion - 36-38 players spawn normally, 2-4 spawn as Heroes. BP can't earn you Heroes. Objective play but you've got to help keep your Hero / Heroes alive too...
  • Thanks again for the event guys.
  • Amazing Event Dice, our whole Blast Clan has been playing GA today for almost 12 hours. Thank you again. Make it permanent please.
  • They should make Heroes Unleashed a game mode
  • Suck playing as droids. Just a bunch of CC spam. Quitting the GA PT maps for this event. Don’t play CS.

    This sort of feedback takes a fair bit of time to gestate, and it's also dependent upon DICE's own plans for the intentions of the event. The feedback has been heard though, the debut of the event and even this new interpretation of the event has been bringing in some great feedback (if a little polarizing at times).

    Enjoyed last months BoTG event and enjoying it this month regardless of the restrictions. It's nice to see the game mode go through a little change. With that said, and thinking outside the box for other players, I believe a few moderations to the next BoTG event could be a bit more joyful for players. With that said, taking away what players would like to experience for the next event.

    November 2019 "Boots on the Ground Event" suggestions:

    1. Allow Hero's and Vehicles to be available during the three (3) day event.

    * This will allow players who thoroughly enjoy the event not go to "waste" due to 100% restrictions of Hero's and Vehicles. Since these events, I've (and many others) have noticed the drop in player base within the game and popularity of viewers and streamers on Twitch for SWBF2. This indicator signifies the dislike for the event and popularity of the event is not in favor to the community. You want customers to play your game, changing it up from time to time is fine, however, take stride with the feedback from the community and apply it. Sometimes a small change can have the biggest impact. If DICE allows Hero's with a reasonable BP ceiling, players will be drawn to play SWBF2 vice the current event.


    2. Increase the Battle Points to obtain Hero and Vehicle to 10,000 Battle Points each.

    * Not a bias number towards "skill" of a player or players. 10,000 BP's can be obtained moderately through game play. I believe this would grant CS mode a bit more popularity due to the length of the game and players can obtain 20k+ BP's giving players more than one chance at a Hero. Where GA, some games can last anywhere from 10-20 min and possible could obtain 10,000 BP's and see a Hero or two running around. I'd imagine if this were to happen, majority of players would be running around as a Officer with accelerated BP Star Cards since Officer's BP meta grants the quickest way to obtain BP's.

    3. A slight twist in allowing Hero's and Vehicles, increase the Battle Points to obtain "Reinforcements" to 200,000 BP's.

    *This would be interesting just to balance Hero's and Vehicles being obtainable without having 5 Clone Commando's running around buffing everyone to 50% DR while trying to capture objective choke points like East and West objectives in the downed AT-AT's on Phase 2 on Kashyyyyk for example, rather have Hero's and Trooper's defending / capturing objectives. This alternative would alleviate the Clone Commando's posting up in one objective buffing everyone to 50% DR while the attacking team is at a moderate disadvantage. Personally, I've experienced defeat just about every time I was on the Separatist team due to the amount of Clone Commando's allowed in play at a time, especially in choke point objective area's where they can all buff everyone around them to 50% DR.


    4. Throw in Triple XP during the BoTG event.

    *Everyone loves XP no matter the amount and it's a good motivator.


    5. Grant "limited time" skin appearances, voice lines and poses for all Hero's during the Hero's Unleashed event.

    * I think this would be interesting to see for players that don't have the available credits to purchase their favorite skin appearance, voice lines or poses. I understand some players have millions of credits obtained through gameplay and probably have all the skins, although not everyone has those credits to spend and there are new SWBF2 players that would enjoy this event as well. As for myself, I've purchased majority of "Rare" Trooper skins, obtained all 401st and 41st Phase III Clone skins (20k and 40k credits each) and now saving up for 80k BP's for Legendary skins (currently 58k credits). It's a grind, no doubt, but still, this would promote further motivation for players to grind towards those one or two skins, voice line or pose they really like. Something to consider.

    6. Double or Triple Credit Friday Pay Day!

    * Ping ponging from what I've suggested above, this also would allow "new" and beginning players with that extra push that motivates them to purchase skins, voice lines and appearances, in turn regain popularity in SWBF2. Who doesn't like to get paid on a Friday!

    *** If possible, enable Double XP and Double Credits during Halloween as "candy" beginning on midnight October 31st and ending on midnight November 1st. *Ding ******, trick or treat!" It's a short event, but in spirit of Halloween.


    In closing, I believe some of these suggestion are doable through DICE. In all fairness to everyone, I understand you can't appease both parties in favor and not in favor of these events, however, taking in some of these suggestions and bringing it to the table might strike up some brainstorming during the next Monday or Friday meeting.

    Have a great weekend!

    Out of curiosity are people experiencing separatists winning most the time and the teams having more score in general or is it just me?

    On a suggestion for a future event, heroes unleashed in CS, GA, but w/o reinforcements in strike/extr.

    sounds like hero handicap to me, heroes are the biggest nuisance in both big gamemodes

    Heroes are part of the game and taking content away even temporarily are lame and boring if you ask me, but everyone have their own opinion sure.

    My constructive feedback:
    1) despite this being troopers mostly i very rarely have to use any, without heroes cutting my down i can mostly live on reinforcements after one life with maybe a life here or there as a trooper depending how long the game is.

    I recommend either doubling the points or removing any battlepoint gains from reinforcements during this mode.

    2) i think this definitly lacks vehicles. Imo troopers are the ones using the vehicles and therefore vehicles should be used.

    3) I think due to the bp increase of cc we are seeing a lot less of them at a given time. This is balancing out the game a lot more. Before there was always commandos shielding people, now you dont run into the buff as much and when you do it isnt in groups encompassing a huge portion of players.

    Unfortunately this in my experience has proven that overall the separatists have the better reinforcements. This is due to the fact that the only op aspect of a clone commando is the middle ability and the fact it affects many people around them. Without it hes just another reinforcement close to useless at range unless using the anti armour grenades.
    The republic seam to have all close quarters oriented reinforcements. Both the b2 droids and the bx are great at range, the republic have the jet trooper.

    Solution: Reduce the spread of dc 17m so its more consistent.
    Change the crosshair to be more accurate with it, at least when aiming similar to dc 15le.
    Increase damage up to middle distance.
    Decrease damage at short range a bit
    Increase cooldown of anti armour grenade ability so its not spammed all the time.
    (This is also considering the 50% damage reduction bug will be sorted and go to 25%)

    5) With the cc becoming more of a middle-short range fighter, maybe the wookie could get a bit of a buff to its damage at very close ranges. and become the very cq unit for republic simiakr to wat the cc and the droideka are right now? I think this would make more sense rather than every republic being cq. Just buff the wookie at very close range.

    4) the droideka, i hvnt used much so wont go into balancing however its infuriating when in the middle of a fight to accidently press the sprint button and go into roll mode. Can we please have that removed from controllers??

    5) cs match time: two times today ive been in games that have lasted over an hour to not say 2 hours getting above 200kills playing the objective, really trying to push to win and carrying my weight only to have to leave the game early with no credit payout. Is there any chance each time you return to the ground there could be a checkpoint added so that you can be rewarded for your efforts up to that point? Im sure many people would appreciate this.

    6) matches seam to go backwards and forwards a lot more without having heroes. That could be my experience alone but if this is happening on a large scale i guess it shows how strong heroes are in turning and deciding battles. (Just an observation)

    7) as an idea for a future ltm, the same way there is a boots on the ground, could we have an eyes in the sky event where starfighters become available to cs for a weekend. Or would this be too hard to achieve??

    Hey Dice...if u gonna ruin the game for a weekend, can you at least put me in a lobby where the ***** know how to pick up the rocket launcher and shoot the ATAT?

  • This event sucks alot of icicle and they done it 3 weeks ago? ea always is like this.....keep going on like that and ruin all my games i already quit many.......why would you even take heroes out of a hero map?!?!?! No one plays GA now....

    AGAIN A WEEKEND SCREWED! Weekends r for my BF 2 Games and wanting to play a darn hero in GA do you not understand that? WHERE IS MY DAILY LOOT? rofl god you guys... so sad

    to me it sounds like you are the whiner, go play HvV if you cant live without heroes, or go to instant action instead.
    Hero spam is something that ruins CS and GA, it should be 2 heroes and 1 hero max per side respectively, with the BP cost for heroes increasing 2x after playing heroes for a total of 5 minutes in a match

    100% unrelevant to the map...brainlesssssssss

    This game is not just about the heroes, battlefront never has been ... and likewise, if you don't like the restrictions there is this mode called Heroes vs Villains and its available 24/7.

    If no one plays ga without there being any heroes it must be a pretty flawed game mode no?

    Tbh though this is probably down to the fact that only clone wars have had new reinforcements so the new additions arent that common in ga with the rest having all been there since launch. Meaning people are probably a bit bored of it. CS is great for this event with all the options of reinforcements.
  • Bois.....the event is almost over 😁🙌🙏
  • It's ok but get a boring pretty fast
  • Seppies are better in GA now. Don't know how this happened
