I bought two copies of the game for me and my brother but we can't play it because you must waste literally HOURS if you're lucky to start a match. You must wait for other players to join (20 - 16 - 12 - 4 players, depending on the game mode) the problem here is that majority of players don't have patience at all to wait for other people. They just want to join the server and play. This is logical, nobody likes to wait...

So the big problem here is that people join but they leave soon, others join and again they leave after a couple of minutes. This happens continuously, you have a lot of people constantly joining but the server never starts because you need like 20 players simultaneously to start a single match. These waits are exhaustive and, as I say, it takes hours to start a single game!

The perfect solution is lower the number of people needed to start a game. Star Wars: Battlefront is almost dead only because of this HUGE problem! IT URGENTLY NEEDS A LITTLE UPDATE TO FIX THIS!

Here is the perfect solution to resurrect the game, just change these numbers:

-Big modes (Walker Assault, Supremacy, Turning Point) from 20 players to 10 players to start.
-Small modes (Blast, Fighter Squadron, Heroes vs Villains, Droid Run, Hero Hunt, Cargo, Drop Zone) from 4 players to 2 players to start.
-Outer Rim DLC from 4 players to 2 players to start.
-Bespin DLC from 16 players to 8 players to start.
-Death Star DLC from 12 players to 6 players to start.
-Rogue One: Scarif DLC from 12 players to 6 players to start.

In this way, other people will join and remain on the server because they can now play!

So PLEASE lower the number of players needed to start a match! We paid for a game that we cannot play!


*This is not just my opinion! is the opinion of everyone who currently plays the game!

  • Clever way to jump start it.
    “There is always hope.”
  • I actually agree with you 100%. I think it should be like 2-4 players across all modes, I think its fun if only you and a few others are alone on a map. Battlefront, the original, is dieing because of this.

  • @EA_Rtas Shouldn't this be moved to the Star Wars Battlefront part of the fourm?
    Baby Yoda is the absolute greatest character Disney has created.

    Baby Yoda is love, Baby Yoda is life.

    It should and it has been! Cheers
  • All modes should be just 2 players needed in my opinion. But any changes like that will benefit the game.

    You really deserve that Vader's picture in your profile man... you're pure evil. Developers need to know about this HUGE problem!

    So don't try to hide the post and tell them about this as soon as you can.
  • Whenever stuffs moved to battlefront 2015 side its never addressed. It should be here because its about 2015 but i get you. It needs to be addressed. Shouldnt the people who made the game want it to succeed and live long as much as the players.

    Okay so nothing is hidden, this thread isn't about Battlefront II it's about Battlefront if I understand it correctly, so I moved it to the correct section.

    Just tell developers about this as soon as possible. This game needs an urgent fix.
  • Is there any word of making the requirements for a game lower @EA_Rtas

  • agreed. i often wait for death star. i went into recent players the other day and within a 10 minute period 24 players had come and gone and we still didnt have a game going! its stupid.
  • If the DLC was free it might solve the problem.

    Jediseth1 - PSN
  • Have to make the DLC free now. Game is dead.
  • Yes, add the walker assaults from dlc to the regular walker assault playlist.
  • EA just abandons their old games so the players will move to the new ones. Eventually the servers will be shut down, because "not enough people were playing". The Battle For Middle Earth servers went down and now there are hundreds of servers set up through third party programs, which just proves my point.

    most definitely. what platform are you on sir?

    Im on xbox.
    Hoping before those servers get shut down they will add some dlc to offline so it isnt all lost. Atleast skirmish mode dlc maps, starfighter assault maps already has bots.

  • Yes, add the walker assaults from dlc to the regular walker assault playlist.

    Exactly, and they should add the other dlc modes into the vanilla map group (Blast, Cargo, Fighter Squadron, Heroes vs Villains, Supremacy, Walker Assault, Turning Point and so on)

    Is that or lower the number of players required to start all matches in general (specially DLCs).

    EA doesnt care about old games, so unfortunately you're gonna have to just deal with it.

    If any devs disagree you can just look back at your forums, there are several threads complaining about this issue going all the way back to the games first years of release.

  • the least they could do would just reduce required number for dlc modes.
  • I played some cargo last night, it was pretty fun, I ran into some darn tough players. I didn't come across a whole lot of waiting for lobbies to start. I only played cargo and bespin though.
  • I have this game and have struggled with it for quite some time. I’m in Australia and struggle to find stable lobbies or lobbies that can start the game. I agree to set it to 2 players per side to start a game / any game mode including walker assault. At least me and my son can play it that way. So much of this game I’m still to see , and I’ve paid for the game and DLC for two consoles.
  • 100% Agree. Lowering the player count is a great solution!

    you're in the discord already right? it'll help you to network and find players to play with. changing your matchmaking to US west/east or Europe helps a lot too since AU servers are pretty much dead
