  • So it’s basically GA and CS with no heroes. I have spoken
  • Awesome, I cannot wait.
  • Looking forward to it.
    Please, let’s try next time without reinforcements as well.
  • Thanks Dice for listening to any and all who suggested vehicles be added to BOTG! I liked what I played!

    My observations - Simply removing heros but leaving everything else doesn't feel as game breaking to this game as taking heros and vehicles both out simultaneously.

    CS and GA both still provided me with great and fast paced multiplayer.

    Probably the closest players will get to another Battlefield 2142 until EA and DICE reboot it someday.


    It was interesting seeing this event and all the other events during this games history. It offered me a perspective kind of like hitting mute or solo on an audio track and seeing what effect or difference that individual track had on the overall mix. Without heros it to me did not feel quite as hectic or intense. If regular BOTG is like driving the car @ 40 mph then adding the vehicles was like going 100, and then add heros to that its like going 120, and HU is like 150 mph if that makes sense.

    In a similar way - I feel the original Star Wars films had a unique mixture of things that made them what they were in most people's eyes. I think the prequels tried to capture that all and failed and succeeded at the same time based on various variables. I think Jar Jar Binks was not received the same as the puppet characters of the original trilogy because the world was different at the time. The same can be seen with Superman Returns which was also poorly received. Technically it should have done as well as any of the Christopher Reeves Superman films, it had the John William's theme, great portrayal of Lex Luthor by Kevin Spacey and Clark by Brandon Ruth, it featured many of the things the older ones had yet it is considered a "bad" film by most of the critiques out there. But many years later Man Of Steel was considered so much better yet it is so violent, it is almost like a cartoon with real life action. And elements of violence and explosions start taking precedence it seems over elements of a good overall story and sensible action, that can be seen in the Transformers films. Perhaps if Jar Jar had been a darker more bad ***** character he would have been received differently?
  • This would be ok if HvV wasn't so broken. I'll probably skip this weekend, I play as an infantry enough already.
  • Oh my :o
  • God Strike XL is so boring. The heroes make it wayyyyy more fun imo. Whether I'm playing as one or just watching them run around the field or melting one with my heavy. But whatever to each their own. If Dice would put these "events" in separate playlists like many have asked, then it would make everyone happy.
  • Why have you not gotten rid of Reinforcements for this event? The community has been as transparent as they can possibly be on this. Stop missing the mark.

  • I was really looking forward to trying to get a good killstreak with Han :( How about a non-saberhero event instead, since they are the ones people get annoyed about.

    They just need to add turning point with 3 maps. But I think they have major concern about player numbers. In fact, I'm certain.

    But itd be great to have full TP lobbies and watch the crying.

    Except numbers go up.

    1) stated by Forge
    2) see it in my friends list
    3) see it in lobbies by being full and quickly filling

    Devs have also said numbers go up during Heroes Unleashed. On top of that, more people play on the weekends. My friends from this game aren't playing CS or GA that I've seen.
  • OMG! "I want this!" "No, I want this, it is more important!"......
    3 days something else and all go nuts!

    I think someone is hacking the Ps4 servers to insert heros into CS. Just got ganged up on by yoda and anakin. I have screenshots of their names @F8RGE

  • I like this event, I can happily pew pew around the map without getting one shot "suprise mother****er"-ed by a lightsaber hero around the corner. :>

  • I like this event but I can't wait for the Heroes to come back. I am not a big fan being the only one in the objective while my whole team is hiding in spawn.

    Best way to hit the troopers only mark is to revamp JPC into Cargo and add it to the Strike/Extraction tile.

    I’m enjoying the non hero GA as it has been the closest experience to 15. Lots of PTO and back and forth battles. One of the better events yet.

    They only set the heroes at 80k. Attainable in CS if the match goes long enough.
  • Definitely ruined the game this week.
    This is a game that is not fun.
    Games should be fun.
    Im done.

    Definitely improved the game this week.
    This is a game that is very fun.

    Im happy
  • This is so much better.
    The flow of the games completely change without heroes.

    Again, please consider giving us a permanent trooper mode.

    This is the way.
  • If removing content is seen as a treat, maybe you should review that content.

    That would be a no.
  • Wouldn't it be easier just to disable all heroes and making it say "not available on this phase" rather than making them unlockable by 80,00 or more battlepoints??
  • You literally take out the thing that makes this a different gaming experience / feel more like Star Wars.

    And on a holiday weekend.

    This game never stops with the facepalms. It's insane that you REMOVE content from your game and call it a special event. You should be ashamed.

    Thanks for ruining my weekend and return to the game, Dice. It’s absolutely wonderful - been looking forward to playing GA and instead it’s a win for the defenders at every chokepoint unless said team is trash.

    Look, just implement separate servers or give hero haters their own mode, stop inflicting these awful events on all of us.

    THIS 1000% THIS

    80k is actually doable in CS lol. I know two guys who left HvV earlier just try for heroes in CS😂

    Yup! I agree with all of your posts and your outlook on BF2. Keep em comin!

  • I'm enjoying this event. Some weekends heroes are everywhere (and I don't bother playing) when they are unleashed. This time it's only troopers. It's only for a couple days and you can still use vehicles, wookies, death troopers and the rest of the enforcers.

    seems to me they won't do this because of all the regions that barely have enough activity to support existing modes

    99%, yeah, try again... If you think there are that many ppl of your kind, herolords I mean, you're completely mistaken.

    I guess you call people herolords cause you're so trash you can never get heroes :smile:
  • Removing content from the game again, GJ. I don't know one streamer or friend that actually enjoy this *****.

    Only casual noobs on twitter / reddit likes it.

    The Herolord / Trooperlord debate is almost as overdone as the era debate.

    Almost.

    Im on neither twitter or reddit and love this event.......so, you are already wrong
  • The best event of this game.

    Without heroes, the game is much more balanced.

    Conclusion:

    - Limit the number of heroes to 2 max for each team.
    - Increase the price of the heroes

    They need to increase the price of Heroes for sure (preferably to 800,00). I saw a guy earlier playing as both Anakin and Obi Wan, completely wrecking my team. Was like, Ok, seriously? This just makes the need for Hero price increase all the more dire.


    That, or disable Heroes entirely, for the duration of this event

  • This 'event' was anything but it's name. It was basically replacing heroes with more reinforcements. Instead of owning with Luke or Vader or Kylo or Palpatine, I owned with the BX Droid and Rocket Trooper. 15-20 killstreaks easily with those guys without really trying for a killstreak. Instead of one or two heroes dominating, you get 4, 5, 6 reinforcements doing it. Saw a guy camp with the BX droid in the final phase of Naboo, just slaughtering infantry with the vibrosword as soon as they came out the doors. It's not much different imo. Unless you have equally matched teams, it's one-sided domination. If noobs are on your team and you attack, you can't make much difference on the dark-side. WW's holding it down at the chokepoints with OVERLOAD, you aint getting in. This weekend was decent fun, but it wasn't what I would play more than once or twice a week.
