  • Anyone else feel like they’re playing with a bunch of 5 yr olds that dont know what the objective is in Capital Supremacy? They need a ranked system so competent players can play alongside each other, making games interesting and not just a victory based on which teams isnt quite as dumb as the other. This is where most of the 3 hr long matches stem from, people shooting around the objective instead of actually at the ship’s weakpoints. Its infuriating and the only reason I refuse to play capital supremacy.

    nahh, although it can be annoying, battlefront is not really a competitive shooter that would justify a ranked mode

    Surely anything where there is an activity based around winning and losing = competition = competitive.

    How is it possible for a shooter not to be competitive?

    from a pure word definition perspective you are right, but looking at it in real life and comparing it to other shooters and genre, it is not highly competitive. It is not very skill based nor is there a noticable learning curve in how to play better e.g..

    I play competitively tho. I want to win .... Not top leaderboards I hasten to add
    .. I mean win matches
  • I freaking love this game and I absolutely don't want to be like some of the people who only complain.....but.....I cannot wait to be able to play original trilogy on Co-op!!! It's my favorite game mode and my son and I will play for hours! But personally, I HATE episodes 1-3 with a passion!! Lol. I need to be able to be the REAL Darth Vader and find people's lack of faith disturbing while I choke them out!!

  • Another Palpatine "fix". Awesome, much appreciated.
    @F8RGE you guys are still trying to shove Palpatine into the "support" role by taking away every single option he has that gives him a miniscule advantage over another character.

    I can't tell if this is sarcasm or you genuinely don't play this game. Palps is not quite as OP as he used to be in GA but there are frequent 100+ streaks these days. Pure cheese in HvV too.
  • Sooooo...
    When are we going to get some NEW MAPS FOR STRIKE???
    PLEASE!
  • While I'm extremely grateful the support for this game has gone on much further than I thought, I think it's time to show some love to the OG and even sequel era's. It'd be great to see said era's added to CO-OP and instant-action and even more weapons being added.
    Thanks for the continuous support, it's much appreciated.
  • Will we ever see a fulia aslut game mode
  • honestly. very disappointed. the ui changes seem minimal compared to what you said prior f8rge. I thought it will be completely individual and changes would be made. now there just a bit minimized. that is sad
  • Looks ike an awesome update. Skins looks amazing.
  • Yaaaay. More skins! At least summat to spend some hard earned credits on.

  • Loving the new skins! Thanks devs

    But surely these would have made good Level-Up Rewards?

    Is Poe Dameron ever coming to the game as a playable character for the shooter modes? I thought for sure we'd get him for the TROS update.

    Still no new Extraction maps eh...?
  • Request for Delta Squad, not this jungle crap! Get with the program instead of pulling a typical Kathleen Kennedy and not listning to the fans and ignore REAL STAR WARS Lore. You Never learn..!
  • - Leia buff
    - UI changes
    Thanks DICE!
  • Instead of creating new skins and other stuff (useless stuff) focus on FIX OLD BUGS LIKE ERROR CODE 2495 on PC platform. A lot of users fighting against this bug-like others, without a solution, by a long time.
    Achievement "EXCELLENT SERVICE" is solved but blocked by months and every time I play I have the annoying notification of the achievement and the error...

    Wow.. thank you. Genuinely one of the nicest posts I've read on the forums.. and for me too. Thank you.
    I hope so too.
  • I didn't know Leia's Flash Grenade disables saber tracking...

    That's how useful it is.
  • Haha literally everything we've been asking for. Thankyou devs!

    funny i don't remember asking for more skins....

    new maps yes...not more fricken skins.

    classic dice, listen to the garbage feedback and add more crap.

    still waiting a for a decent game to emerge from this broken franchise.

  • Cool skins. I wonder if we will get B2 Super Battle Droid skins in the future?
  • Skins for the B2 Super Battle Droids/B2-RP Rocket Droids would have been a nice addition, there's plenty of examples of them having different tints in both Legends and Canon.

    A few examples would be:
    The B2 droids from the Felcuia Campaign in Legends, https://imgur.com/eUNmRQt
    The B2 Camouflaged droids, https://imgur.com/J6KOvVc
    The B2 droids from Quarantine World III, although this is Post-Clone Wars, https://imgur.com/vDnc69H
    And just for good measure, the B2 droids from Lego Star Wars that had the blue tint :)https://imgur.com/MLvGbol
  • I thought bosk fall damage was an actual feature XD
  • Stormtroopers assault.Galactic Empire: Stormtrooper should be able to call for assistance. ''Hey, over here!" Enhance C.B. Radiowave chatter between troopers. Original Star Wars best of all. Try sticking to it as a template. Shoot outs for Battlefront 2 are extremely ggood! Commando Trooper needs to be streamlined. He is too bubbly looking. He looks like Robocop(Peter Weller). Darth Maul SHOULD be able to deflect and redirect bullets at opponent! Darth Vader is too weak. As a kid seeing Empire after standing in line with my family and hundreds of people, during a scorching summer day in May, I could not wait to see if Lucas could top Star Wars. He did. Not only with intro to Yoda and Luke's new Jedi skills but the rest of the cast C3po,R2D2, Chewy, Princess Leia, Han, the Millenium Falcon asteroid run...plus Lando ((Billy Dee Williams) and Boba Fett, Wow. I haven't got to "The power of the darkside"...DARTH VADER. Who was even more scarier than in the first movie.You should make a stormtroopers assault videogame. Call it DARK EMPIRE. I'd buy it. You sort of did this with the first STAR WARS BATTLEFRONT 2. Got rid of shocktroopers but transplanted their jetpack to rebels and jettroopers. Or just add it to the current Star Wars battlefront2. Thank you for taking the time to authenicate one my most liked movies.
  • I'm curious to see what the Droideka skin will look like, since it wasn't pictured above. I can't tell what color is that line that's on the citadel guard commando droid skin, because from what i remember from the citadel episodes is that the citadel guard was brown with a goldish/yellow colored lines on it, in the pic above it almost looks like it has a red/orange colored line on it, not the accurate gold color, but i'll have too see it.
  • Those new Arc Trooper skins are beautiful. Love the new animation on the menu screen too :)

    I am still BEGGING you:

    change the Kashyyyk Units from 41st Green P2 Troopers to 41st Scout Troopers like in the MOVIES!!
    it feels like you were making this wrong on purpose! You got the movie as reference...yet you decided to make it NOT this way....why exactly?

    I'm floored by these new skins. The BX Commando Droid, the ARC Trooper and the Commando especially. Outstanding new skins all around, many are ultra cool in fact. Well done DICE, well done. 👍🏼

    Thanks also for the Sequel Trilogy maps coming to "Instant Action" in January? 👍🏼

    (1.) Bring on the Original Trilogy for "Instant Action" now.

    (2.) Bring on AI Destroyer Droids and AI vehicles for "Instant Action".

    (3.) Bring on bigger selections in "Instant Action" menus (like the Hero can be selected by a person with the highest score/ lowest score or random) or the option to have it available after a certain period of time, like 10 min/ 15 min or instantly, etc. Both these were in SWBF 2 2005 menus). The latter will help solve your concern devs with players not being able to gain access to certain heroes.

    P.S. - here's some related material from another thread devs that may help you solve some issues regarding this subject. There are tons of options.

    I still find astonishing that they still have failed to find a simple solution to adding Bot heroes/villains to players side.
    (1.) No Friendly Hero AI: I think they haven't given us Friendly AI Heroes on purpose because they want to give us the ability to choose anyone we wish. I recall the devs saying that. Seems to me though the simple solution is have the menu option just like the 2005 SWBF.

    (2.) No Destroyers or Vehicles: I think the issue is that Destroyer Droids, Tanks and Starfighters are throwing the match way in favor of the C.I.S.. Think about it, Learning AI Destroyer Droids bent on one thing, getting to those Command Posts. The Learning AI would be relentless and then on top of that starfighters strafing CPs. Wow! That's a mega challenge for the devs to figure out how to balance that out. It would likely be waaaaaay one sided. Still they had lots of time, but on top of that maps are hard to traverse. I completely understand how Crait is not yet included.

    I'm sad about Destroyers and such not being here yet but I understand the devs struggling. Here's hoping they pull off a miracle.

    I'm well aware of the frankly lame excuse why they haven't added friendly hero bots. The community has already suggested several simple workarounds and tbh I don't think many Offline would care if it restricted what hero the player could choose, I know I wouldn't.
    I'll just provide a quick solution to this one.
    • Let AI choose and play as hero they want
    • In the menu as a normal player, provide the possibility to still choose any hero of your liking
    • If you choose a hero that is currently taken by AI, kill that hero so that you can choose him
    • Spawn then the normal player in as the hero of choosing as usual
    Okay but how about instead of making the AI die how about instead the computer selects for the Learning A.I. a similarly powerful hero. So lets say they were Anakin and you wanted Anakin you could select Anakin and the computer would reassign the Learning A.I. Obi Wan. This way the A.I. will not be ripped out of having a hero. Just a thought. It is only fair.
    Well, I would make it easier than this. Kill the Ai hero but give the AI instantly the battlepoints back. Then the AI should be clever enough to simply select a hero again asap. Killing the AI ensures that there is for sure no AI unit playing with the same character and keeping all logic systems in place without the need for massive redesign.
    Hmmmm sounds logical, here's hoping the AI doesn't get confused. 🙂

    Simpler solution is to have an option just to disable friendly heroes in the game customisation, just like they have for enemy heroes, for those who don't want bots to take heroes. Everyone's happy, problem solved.

    Thanks devs one and all for all your hard work.

  • Beautiful skins. The ARC Trooper with all of his new skins being both Phase I and II shocked me. Only thought we were getting Phase II. Love the new animation for the ARC Trooper. Commando skins look awesome. Drodikea skin is neat as well. All in all great job

  • Hey, liking this update so far but there is a visual glitch when in first person. Playing as a trooper and going into first-person has the left hand that is holding the rifle appear infront of the gun rather than holding it properly. After a bit of testing it appears to only affect Empire and Republic assault classes.
  • Everything looks good but 1 new map? Are you guys trying to avoid spoilers or are there really not that many locations in the movie?

  • Everything looks good but 1 new map? Are you guys trying to avoid spoilers or are there really not that many locations in the movie?

    They usually only do one map each update. I don't think that there has even been a time in this game they added multiple maps.....other than Solo content and that was because the maps they added were really small (Jabba's palace and Kessel)

    Well for The Last Jedi they couldn't do much cuz there was only 2 locations total, and nobody cares about the casino planet. Not to mention they added a starfighter assault map for the last jedi also. For the Force Awakens they had Starkiller base, Takodana, and Jakku. Theres also a few starfighter assault maps.

  • This new HUD is tragic. Why did you lower the chat section? The message of the murder hides the character ... it looked better earlier
  • I like the update, the fixes and changes, but do something about the team balances I haven't been able to win a game of GA in over 2 weeks so I played CS we failed to destroy the enemy ship 3 times and they did it on their first. The teams are unbalance. Not just from heroes but with players as well. Do something anything allow us to have teams fill with bots. I don't care anymore.

    This is something I suggested waaaaaaaaaaaay back. The idea of filling empty lobbies with bots. Then if players arrive before the countdown is over they replace the bot. For example let's say it was "Extraction" and there was 3 humans on one side and 2 humans on the other, the AI would fill out both teams. If say 3 more humans show up they would be distributed to both teams and 3 AI would be gone. Thus the game starts with two full teams. Easy peesy.😎👍🏼🤗

    Excatly this wouldn't be the first game to have bots replace players. When someone else joins they replace the bot.

    Wait...So you have ep 1-3... what about 7-9?

    because 7-9 are garbage.
  • Enough with appearances. How about a Capital Supremacy map that allows you to play with some different heroes from original trilogy?

    Or how about a hero only objective mode....Maybe a hero only strike/Extraction mode?
