Next week's Star Wars Battlefront II update drops on Jan 30.

We're making some balance changes to Anakin and Palpatine. Auto Players can now hit with melee attacks, and we fixed the issue that allowed them to shoot when they should be immobile.

Droideka also gets a small buff.

    Parry exploit fix?
  • Will there be a fix for the health buff bug that makes anyone buffed be immune to CC effects?

    Excited for the nerfs to Anakin and Palpatine. No longer will there be a sweaty player at the top of leaderboards running around causing chaos with these two.
  • Happy with the small droideka buff as long as it’s nothing drastic. Damage isn’t Anakin’s problem, it’s the ability loop. Palpatine damage also isn’t the problem, it’s the damn lock-on

    Happy Bossk is fixed but he could do with his old rep by hipfire, instead of this lame awkward shotgun.
  • will we get the ct on monday still? or later like tuesday?

    What changes exactly will be made besides what Guillaume revealed in his Tweet? Where do we read about this? I want to reserve my opinions until I know specifically what's changing, but can't find this info. yet. Do we wait for the patch notes?

    Welcome news on both.

    Wow. You guys just blatantly ignore the feedback on the nerfs

    As always, we'll wait and see how things go.

    Do you really need to actually wait? You know how this is going to go. He will get overnerfed because you guys don't know how to balance, and then you guys will slightly buff him back up and leave him weaker in the long run. Just overturn this and leave him as he is. No need to walk a path that has been walked on countlessly and you already know the outcome to the road.

    Spot on.

    We’ve seen this before.

    All Palpatine needed was bug fixes not a damage nerf. Another question, do you guys hate the Light Side? Because it seems as though you never want them to win HvV again.

    What are you talking about? Ball 8 will balance everything.

    Will star cards work for Bossk again?

    Bossk has some fixes.

    Add hero and reinforcement blasters to infantry and add attachable mods to the default ones.

    Not when ball 9 will be buffing Vader Grievous and whoever else
  • Palpatine nerf is clearly something that he deserves. It won't ruin him unless his dmg is going to be nerfed A LOT. However Anakin's nerf...

    The only thing about Anakin that needs to be nerfed is retribution - it should be removed. To compensate, he should receive some buffs - PS speed up and maybe stamina/stamina regen tweak. He CLEARLY doesn't need starcards nerf nor dmg nerf.

  • How about Private Servers? @F8RGE
    I'm the sarlacc that ate Boba Fett. I wish I hadn't because he was a favorite by many fans and an underdeveloped character.

    My man. Thanks
  • Wonder what will break during these 'fixes'. There's always something. I wonder if explosive shot will be bugged again? Maybe Obi's push glitch will be back? Choke is said to be fixed too, but when? Bossk is in a terrible state. Deciding to nerf Anakin's damage is useless. It was only his ragdolling heroes that's any issue. Palps needs bug fixes, not damage nerfs. Doing away with Dark Aura's slowing means the bug isn't fixable(?) but you guys said it was fixed in the past. Caving to reddit is not a good idea. Taking some feedback is good, but overdoing it and choosing ways of 'fixes' that aren't part of the problem is not.
  • Anakin nerf, I just don't understand.
    This does NOT make my heart happy, at all.
    Shame on you @F8RGE , shame!

    Thanks for the Palp fix though!
  • @F8RGE the changes seems good!
    What about the specialist melee bug?
  • @graveyard3377

    😂😂😂

    Beautiful.

  • LMAO. That's a good one

  • What's wrong with Bossk
    Tell me what you want, and I will show you how the dark side can help you achieve it.

    His multi traps star card isn't working and his predator ability isn't lasting as long as it's supposed to.

    Oh. I haven't noticed. But I also don't really play Bossk unless I'm desperate xD

    You still need to see more matches to realize how much weaker the Lightside is? Got it.

    You need to play GA/CS to see how OP the LS heroes are. Stop whining about HvV. These are tweaks to make those large scale modes more playable.

    I only use him once in awhile in trooper modes. Never HvV

    Yeah, that's what I meant. If I'm desperate to turn the tables of a close combat scenario in GA then I'll use Bossk. Specifically referring to Hoth, Endor and sometimes Crait.

    Yoda buff, Obi buff, Leia buff, Lando buff, Rey buff when? HvV is a mess at the moment, might as well remove the LS from it.

    Leia hopefully gets her buffs/reworks next month or following month, according to the hero designer.

    The rest - forget about it.
