    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

    Right? Seems every single time something finally gets better for those who enjoy playing as troopers, working as a team, or simply not wanting to throw the controller through the screen over trying to play, it gets taken away to placate people wanting their precious heroes able to annihilate every soldier on the battlefield to kick up their kill counts. The balancing is pathetic and there should really be a troop only mode online.

    NEVER got tired of playing as a lowly trooper because that was the point of the game.

    Absolutely agreed on all points, the game has become ruled by a minority of people that want to turn it into their personal sandbox with us as the Ai

    This level of imbalance is literally unheard of in any other active MP game at the moment

    Hey folks,

    To confirm we're keeping Heroes available on this <3<3<3<3 event. We want to make sure you still get to play with BB-8 and BB-9E!

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

    No vehicles.

    He want his kids a chance too play as his fav droid heroes

    Be sure to add full context and mention that's a tweet from December 4, thank you <3

    That's quite the opposite of what I was hoping for... I'd rather vehicles remain usable more than heros. But I see the reasoning. I don't agree with it... But I understand.
  • When will there actually be a boots on the ground event with no heroes? Wait... what? We can’t trust you guys, what am I talking about lol. NVM.

    Be a lot cooler if you didn’t. Has nobody considered a large scale blast mode? Vehicles are fine, ships are fine. Just no D*** HEROES. We want battlefront combat like the good old days.

    So, the one event where people don't have heroes oblitorating the map, which was asked for by quite a lot of players, now has heroes in it?

    Logical, right?

    thanks for NOTHING Dice.

    So they cater to the majority..?

    Seems like they know what they are doing.

    That would be epic.

    Heroes aren't as much of a problem that some people make them out to be. They really don't "dominate the match" like the lot here say. If they do, you aren't playing the games I play or just don't care to make them a target. Every time I play on PS4, they're a target. I can get higher killstreaks with the commando droid because he isn't a big bright red circle on the map. Explosive shot, sentry's, grenades, barrage, vanguard, turrets, reinforcements etc. All are tools at your disposal to wipe any hero out. Even the so-called 'OP' Vader.

    Sucks this event has heroes but there's a lot of exaggeration in here.
  • So it's a no vehicles event. I'm sure the survey data says that's what people want.

    You go on 150 kill streaks with a droid?

    Ever wipe out the entire thrown room with a droid?

    @freshseth83 doesn't really matter if they are an easy target or not, there really shouldn't have been heroes during the event

    Or Reinforcements. Now THAT is an event I would happily tune into.

    Right? Like I’ve been saying for years: blast mode no reinforcements no heroes. Just infantry and tanks on some large maps. 20v20

    Correct. And these are the same people that use an aerial to stand on the tank at Kashyyk and snipe people whenever Anakin isn’t available. 150+ kills and done nothing for their team but spam overpowered force throws.

    Never said they should. I said there's a lot of exaggeration about heroes in this thread.

    They don't "ruin matches" by going on "insane killstreaks" all the time. It's rare you get a hero going on big streaks. If they are, it's because there's a few factors going in their favor. They're squadded up, they're playing against a crappy team, no one is trying to take them out. That's more than 90% of the time. Very rarely is there some expert player dominating and destroying the entire opposing team. It's 2 heroes for at least 2 or 3 phases in GA. Your team also get the same amount.

    All the time in these threads, crying for nerfs to heroes and how they're so disruptive. I think that's absurd and it sounds like sour grapes that you can't beat them any easier than you already can (which is pretty easy).

    Dice doesn't get a pass because they lied about this boots event, let me be clear. But the incessant whining about 2 bright red dots you can't kill like your other 150hp trooper is tiresome. Just like the other spam in these forums.
  • @freshseth83 I kinda see it as frustration more than exaggeration. Don't exactly agree on the crying but I do see what you're saying though. Could make an interesting thread

    I understand if you were looking forward to playing without Heroes, so thank you for sharing that with us. The event in current format might not be for everyone, but I do want to call out there will be other events that you will enjoy. And there will also be players that will like this event.

    What I don't understand is if you not a pizza fan. But I'm open to hearing more about that.

    you should really not have this job

    I'd like to add that I saw (and was killed by) a couple of AT-STs in Supremacy on Ajan Kloss during this event, but perhaps I imagined them, because Boots On The Ground including Heroes and Vehicles is just... normal Battlefront?

    Oh yeah, another problem I forgot. Vehicles are completely allowed in Ajan Kloss for some reason.

    He’s probably just trying to cover for Dice’s awful screw-up that was this event.

    I don't know what his intent was (I assume he was trying to be positive on some level) but the cute replies were condescending and DICE needs to admit it screwed up and then handled it with very little tact. Including the text filter which ironically messes up links to their own support forum (file a...er...errata for that!)

    And Yavin IV. Honestly they're needed with the level of incompetent players coming in lately. I actually think Yavin is my least favorite map in this game tied with Takodana.

    Cover for DICE's faults - yes, is nice.

    Making fun of it, the event itself and the people who complain about this circumstance - no, should not happen, especially not in such situations.

  • After a couple of crashed games of GA, I made my own BOTG event, & played some rounds of Blast which is actually pretty fun.
  • I’m guessing based on the silence from the devs this morning it’s a sensitive topic because the smaller more combative threads about what happened have been closed, meanwhile this thread and my thread haven’t been closed.
    I think it shows they aren’t sure how to respond without making things worse, considering if they closed the two big threads it wouldn’t do them any favors

    I'm sure they're not really worried or bothered about it that much. In time they'll sadly be Something else that takes the spot for something to be dissapointed about. I hope I'm wrong

    Very true, sadly the numbers aren’t there and it makes you wonder where Reddit accountability went since that seems to be the main medium they pay attention to PR wise.
