I think there's a reason for lack of news

The only reason I can think of for why they haven't said much about the next patch. They must be working on trying to get the ai ship pickups playable. From what I can understand, it's very difficult for them to make new vehicles, and the fact that there are 4 total pickups, that's 4 vehicles to work on. Even if they are working on that, I don't think that they will be ready for the next patch.

I'm sorry if this discussion was confusing. Just wasn't sure on how to fully explain my point.

    Except someone posted a video here a week or so ago of a hack on PC where they were piloting those ships. It almost looks like DICE had intended them to be playable and ran out of time to get them ready before DS. But I agree that the lack of updates over the last year is puzzling. My thought was that the folks at DICE have been privy to the details on RO and have standing orders not to reveal anything RO related until after the film is released. That doesn't explain the lack of communication up to now, though. I'm really struggling to continue to give EA/DICE the benefit of the doubt

    I think the guy modded them to be playable.
  • They have a Community Manager - that's his job. Even during a barren spell, he should and could be doing much more. Lack of communication is an EA trademark. The same happens on the SWTOR forums. Both have no ability to plan for the community and post launch.

    Given that there's a major game breaking bug (2 actually) on the PC (stuck on load summary and black screen for heroes) - that have been totally ignored for SIX weeks - sums up just how they value their customers. More fool those of you who purchase SWBF2.
  • Even if they are busy, it takes a few seconds to send out a tweet
  • Dennis said he is about to have a second baby. So, the entire Star Wars universe is in abeyance until further notice.
  • we prob get a side patch (non download) this month for something nobody cares about like the last patch, if you can even call it a patch? lol
  • No there is no reason for it. Why is everyone acting like this is odd behavior from DICE? They've done this before and it was a major criticism of the devs on these forums once ago. They probably are working on a big patch/the game and won't reveal any details of what the worked on until the last minute. It's nothing new folks. Just play something else until we get news.

    Yeah I feel the upcoming patch will be huge.

    Why should we wait and be rational? Even your name explicitly suggests that we need the content now, please.

    I hope so, it does make a little bit of sense.

    I didn't say anything of the sort. I am just stating that this cycle of DICE being absolutely silent before suddenly breaking out with news before going back to being radio silent is nothing new.

    Ah, modding is one thing, but making accurate models of the interiors of the fighters is another. They could honestly get away with copying interiors for the other TIE variants, but not for the Y-Wing and B-Wing.

    Watch it be for the bo rifle and that is it .-.

    Still more content than what we got in October.

    But it will cause Sabotage to respawn the generators, R2D2 will move backwards and pulse cannon will get splash damage akin to the TL50 secondary fire.
