  • Or they could just add a hero only objective mode or just add hero only GA permanently.....

    Would much rather have that than hero showdown....Never play that mode.
  • We had BOTG. Deal with Heroes Unleashed.
  • Make. This. Permanent.
    And make it a separate playlist.
    Here's your chance to listen to the community, take it.
  • You mean lightside unleashed, DS getting nerfed into oblivion
  • Any chance of doing a heroes unleashed with triple xp?
  • I've recently returned to Battlefront 2 after a time of absence. The last time I played, things like this didnt really happen so Im a little unsure how they work.

    Does this apply to GA, CS and SA? Or only one or two?

    Im trying to unlock the Maul emote and if it happens to CS, that gives me 2 days to unlock it before Ill play something more... balanced.

    I don't hate heroes in Battlefront 2, I absolutely think they have a place in the game and there are times Ive enjoyed using them myself. But the number of them (and reinforcements at times) can already be a little too much in the default setting imo, and this event means Id prefer to avoid the carnage... if possible :)

  • Great to see the slight adjustment to 9 v 9 in the HU mode, but why not 10 v 10 :D
  • I just wanted everyone being able to spawn as a hero lol.
  • I work all week, can I have ONE WEEKEND of normal battlefront without some stupid event? And can you please in your surveys, ask about the events you run? I did notice in the most recent one, no feedback regarding the no hero event was included in the survey... I wonder why :o
  • Maybe I’ll find a few full lobbies now, GA seems to be drying up on US Virginia. Lots of hit and miss and dead games lately.
  • perfect thanks
  • Man is this going to be fun! I'm gonna get drunk, get some food and play all weekend.

    Best event in gaming! It remembers me of the fun i had in Unreal Tournament in Tokara Forest with the arena mode and only Redeemers available. Dead Bots flying over your head and explosions everywhere!

  • While this event is going on I want to electronically sign everyones name who says this should be permanent. I want to link their playstation names in the comment. Is that okay? @IronSoldier
    Because these people said they want it permanent and they want the devs attention.
  • Well definitely looks like I'm not going to play this weekend.
  • Yay it's back again! Gonna be a fun weekend.
  • You should have a real heroes unleashed mode with unlimited heroes, like 12 Obi Wans or something like that. Complete and utter free fall of chaos. Only one week of course, and in its own mode.
    In fact, you should have all the events just be separate modes for just that amount of time.

    2 much work 2 little bugz
  • Here's your chance to listen to the community, take it.

    Lol.
  • Its the co-op and instant action weekend for me. Maybe a little Blast, Starfighter Assault, and Strike on the side as well
  • They should call the event "Bugs Unleashed".
  • Absolute worse event you guys could ever come up with. Everyone is too scared to push the objective. I absolutly hate this event. It would some what fun if you guys had the severs for it and fix the never ending stream of bugs that you put into this game. To be honest I don't know what you guys are even doing anymore. If I wanted this never ending chaos and bugs, I'd go to Felucia on CS. *TWO BIG THUMBS DOWN*

    I think that they must think that if they just add 'content' and make random changes to UI nobody wants or asks for, and throw in useless events often that nobody will notice how bad the game currently plays. Day one bugs are present still and every single time they make an update things do NOT improve. They just add more and more bugs without fixing nay of the previous ones.

    Funny thing is events like this highlight the bugginess and how bad the game plays. Oh well. This game has lost hope.
  • To be honest, it's not an event we needed really.

    Even though it's temporary, it's buggered up GA, made maps fly by in sheer chaos, and people don't seem to go for objectives now. Plus it does feel buggier since today.

    I've never liked the era mashing or cheap feeling heroes and villains, but this really does highlight it more.

    If anything I suggest making it era only heroes and villains for GA onwards and generally making them stronger, more worth a higher cost. (At least in that mode).

    Wow, you really predicted that one... Nailed it.

    It's sad ain't it? I find it fun.

    I don't hate this event because there's heroes everywhere, that part's fun in a hyperactive chaotic 8-year-old's birthday party kind of way, if a little frustrating if you don't feel like becoming a hero immediately and joining in. No, this event is terrible because in an arrangement where each team can be made of nearly 50% heroes and they cost less BP to spawn than Enforcers, somehow lots of people are still afraid to engage with them.

    I was just in a Naboo battle where only one or two hero players were actually entering the override rooms to defend them, while the rest who had spawned heroes were sitting outside the rooms plinking with blasters or halfheartedly firing Force powers, if even that much, and basically gave that phase up without a fight. They still act like it'll take all round for them to save up the points or their opportunity will be snatched away or something, clinging to their heroes like precious delicate children. that is making this event bad for badness' sake.

    Also the glitching, so very much glitching.

    Since "Capital Supremacy" team size of "Galactic Assault" dropped and since "Co-Op" team size dropped even more. Plus all the people playing "Instant Action" Offline, soooooo yeah there's where they all went. I love "Co-Op" and "Instant Action" so I'm with them. But I do crave a match of Galactic Assault on occasion.

    I find it funny though that the devs told us way back when that the classic game mode of capturing CPs (Conquest) was not popular. Yet here we are and the three most played modes are all about capturing CPs.

    How dare you. Hs is for people eho want to have a intense duel/actually use skill.
  • This is just a over glorified HvV mode.

    Agreed.

    There’s definitely more than two little bugs. Haha.
  • I'm pretty sure most players would prefer Heroes Unleashed over Boots on the Ground event any day.

    I'm enjoying the event so far, however, on certain maps (Kamino, Starkiller Base, Death Star II, Naboo Palace Room Phase 3, to name a few), it's a total lock down for the Darkside. Most of the time, I found myself pitted against the Lightside defending heavily on those maps making it nearly impossible to breakthrough their frontlines and flanks due to their Lightsaber Hero's just chain pushing and pulling anyone that comes close.

    On the other side, sure, being Lightside on those maps is a cinch since all you need are those 9 Hero's and Clone Commandos running around buffing everyone in sight. GG!

    Let us not forget that Boba and Vader a pretty much cannon fodder at this point due to their "unneeded" nerfs. Iden, Bossk, Phasma and Kylo are pretty much the "go to" Hero's since most of the other Darkside Lightsaber Hero's are buggy. It's a easy win for the Lightsided Hero's at this point.

    I agree, boba and vader players are cycling through heroes the fastest cause they always get melted
  • guess i'm not playing bf2 this weekend.
    oh well. :p

  • I haven't been able to find any ga matches today. Anyone else?

    well i can find a lobby with a few players,
    but waiting 15 minutes for it to fill up? nah.
    got better things to do.

    thanks heroes!
  • ***** event. This is ridiculous. Just do a separated playlist for god sake.
  • This is better than boots on the ground - but can you guys PLEASE do some sort of event for Starfighter Assault? So many more people would play it if they knew it existed - it’s the best game mode on this game, I just never get a chance to play due to dead lobbies :(

    It's only better than boots on the ground (objectively of course) because the standard troopers have been neglected since the beginning of 2018 receiving nothing but nerfs and no new weapons because apparently heroes are much more important thus creating a never ending cycle of hate and neglect for the standard troopers.
  • Just played Geonosis had to quit being a hero because no one knew how to use an AT-TE
