Boots on the ground event?

Prev13
Hero’s are still at 4000 BP!? What gives?

Replies

  • Seems to be a altered version of the event. Heroes do have boots after all haha.
  • Lol I guess. After HU I was looking forward to some large scale troopers only gameplay.
  • But I thought Heroes and Vehicles were banned this weekend? lol

    At least one Youtuber announced that he'd be playing other games (Apex) during the event because no one watches him playing infantry. Maybe DICE realized that this game is only about heroes because there are better options for infantry play. Those games are just lacking one fact, they aren't Star Wars. Would have been interesting to see what difference the heroes really make, maybe another time.

    Maybe the reason people don't enjoy trooper content is because outside of the 150HP specialist nerf

    No trooper weapons have ever been buffed, no new star cards, no new weapons, no new infantry only game modes, and E S P E C I A L L Y the nerfs

    I can't even count on one hand how many times even the heavy class has been nerfed because of heroes. Maybe if the game actually got changes to the stale 3 year old meta at this point

    The game would be in a better place in regards to trooper content

    I agree that trooper weapons have been nerfed too much, even heavy troopers exploding shot was nerfed before I was able to grind it. But I don't agree nerfs happened because of heroes, why you are blaming heroes for weapon nerfs? Weapons were just too OP in trooper vs trooper gameplay.

    Before this goes too off the rails...

    @F8RGE, @EA_Tom, @EA_Rtas & @EA_Cian..."Boots on the Ground" event w/o Heroes hasn't been implemented fully. Only vehicles are expensive.

    Edited : Boots on the Ground acronym turns in to hearts...

  • It's outrageous, it's unfair. HU worked just fine. I'd like BOTG to have it's time

    So what's the point of doing this event then?

    No vehicles.

    Yep, aware of that. But as noted we decided to change that.

    DICE!

    I'm so sick of your bad gameplay-descisions! Boots on the ground was the ONLY event when i still liked playing Galactic Assault! Yet you descided to take that away from me as well! -.- because.... you know what? who needs a reason?? why should players not be able to play heroes for just 2-3 days?!?

    maybe because last weekend you UNLEASHED heroes?? you made a mode for those players who like heroes... yet you dont give a damn about players who dislike them! you dont even give them 3 days of fun a month!!

    Boots on the ground was the idea of pure infantry combat! no vehicles, heroes or aircraft! what point is Boots on the ground with only no vehicles and aircraft?? the vehicles were NEVER the problem! never the reason why people liked this event! it was because this event removed HEROES for at lease a while!! -.-

    i'm so done, man.... so done.

    " We want to make sure you still get to play with BB-8 and BB-9E! "
    thats a stupid reason! a REALLY stupid reason! you can still play them in Coop or Acarde, where they dont annoy other players! -.- you're just afraid of losing little kids attention if you just take away their hero-toys for 3 days, right?

    I get how everyone likes Star Wars for their own reasons, but to dislike it because of the heroes? That's kind of like disliking a pizza with cheese on it man :/

    The enjoy less cheese from time to time. It's different

    Excellent! Would be daft for newly introduced hero’s to be unavailable in large scale modes so quickly after release!

  • Amazing this game is.
