What DO you want carried over from EA's Battlefront?

As the title states, my question is what you all actually DO want carried over from EA's Star Wars Battlefront (2015)? There have been countless threads about what people don't want or new content/changes that people want implemented in Battlefront II, so I figured I would tackle a different angle here.

I mean, if you like absolutely nothing about the current game, then I guess this thread isn't for you. I, for one, still enjoy Battlefront on a daily basis. Here are a few of the things I would like to see make their way into the next game in some for or another.

1. Game Modes - Walker Assault (it's classic), Turning Point (make the mode purely infantry), Heroes Vs. Villains (people seem to like it), Droid Run (a mindless mode that is nice to fall back on when things aren't quite going your way. Plus, Gonk Droids). These are the ones I would like to see return to the game. Past these I would love to see them get creative and make up new ones or variants of the originals.

2. Skins - Skins are my thing. Every time we had a new DLC on the horizon I would thirst over and speculate as to what the new skins would be. As we all know, they dropped the ball on many of the skin opportunities (Bespin Wing Guard? Barf). That being said, it would be a shame to have these skins simply waste away in Battlefront I. Best way to implement the OG skins I believe would be to make some sort of "Battle Pack", micro transaction dealio that contains (or some of) the skins from EA's original game. That being said, these skins should still always be restricted to their appropriate locations and eras.

3. Maps - I'm undecided about maps. The more content DICE/EA/Motive can cram into this next game the better for all of us. But, I'm not so sure how excited I would be to have Twilight on Hoth or Scarif Jungle pop up on my map rotation. If they did want to re-use some of locations and maps, I'm hoping they would revamp them or alter them even ever so slightly. If they feel fresh, I'm all for it. Of course planets as a whole will and should be re-used. Tatooine, Hoth, Endor, Scarif, Sullust Jakku and Bespin should all have their place in Battlefront II.

4. Emotes - As much of a stickler I am for immersion, I do enjoy emotes. I really wish they had added a couple of emotes with each DLC. I mean, how difficult can they be to come up with? The possibilities are infinite. The right emote at the right moment can be oh so satisfying. DICE/EA, if you're listening, make me a Thumbs Down (a strong and confident thumbs down) and a Phew! (wipes forehead in a "that was a close one" gesture) emote. Emotes just have to stay.

5. Hip Fire - I know there has been some heated debate on this style of gunplay making its way back into BF II, but I personally would like it to stay. Separates the game from other FPS style shooters and gives it a unique pace. I think it's more difficult to master than many of you are giving it credit for, but maybe that was just for me. I still feel like I'm trying to get the hang of this bloody game. However, I'm sure whatever changes they're making to the gunplay mechanics won't be as drastic as they sound. And if it extends the life of the next game then so be it. I'll adapt.

That's my list of a small handful of things I would like to see carried into Battlefront II (which can't come soon enough). Let me know what you guys would add or subtract. Since I'm literally only making this thread to procrastinate my paper that's due in 7 hours, I should go.

May the 4th be with you.

    Assets are the main things that should be carried over. No need to remodel the Rebels or Stormtroopers.

    I WOULD like it IF they carried forward the SAME ammo and grenade system. It was fun not having to worry about depleted munitions and simply managing cooldowns.

    Also really hope they continue doing amazing things for web-based stats and in-game customizations. DICE has always been the front runner for that sort of thing.

    Agree. I like the cooling flush system. Maybe if they introduced a handful of ammunition type weapons (e.g. DT29) for the users that wanted those.

    Battlefront II has a 45.8% chance of success.

  • Skins, Hip Fire, and certain Game Modes. I'd love to see Battle Station return, Hip Fire = self explanatory, and for skins I really want to see the return of the X-Wing Pilot, Shadow Trooper, and Shock Trooper.

    Arcade mode needs 20v20 and starfighter battles for Battlefront II!!!

    Honestly I could tell by the trailers in the first Battlefront that the maps would be small and linear...But I can say this.. DICE doesn't do downgrades...More than likely that WAS the graphics in Battlefront II trailer

    That trailer was a cinematic. It gives us hints to the content, but shows us zilch about actual gameplay and mechanics. I'm going to like the game regardless, as I'm a big Star Wars fan but merely a casual gamer. So many people that hated on this game are jumping RIGHT back onto the BFII bandwagon after that short film they showed us. We all knew it would happen exactly as it has :D

    I haven't hopped on that bandwagon yet ..But I am hyped..Mainly because of the campaign...Yea I know it has 3 eras for Multiplayer..But alot of things made the multiplayer repetitive and lacking in the first one
  • I actually enjoyed the Battlefront DLC, I want all of them carried over to Battlefront 2, but change them up a bit the best they can based on feedback.

    What are "linear maps?"
  • Mainly just the attention to detail and incorporation of various aspects of non-film lore into the game. In the previous game we got several weapons from Rebels like the bo-rifle, X-8 Night Sniper, and T-7 Ion Disruptor. We also got the EE-4 straight from the pages of the Marvel comics, the TL-50 heavy blaster and K-16 Bryar pistol from the Dark Forces series, and the legendary TIE Defender from TIE Fighter.

    Given how one of the Sentinel droids from Shattered Empire and the ID9 seeker droid used by the Seventh Sister in Rebels are prominent in the trailer, it seems this trend will thankfully continue. We've also gotten peeks at a Republic naval uniform used by officers in TCW, the DC-17 pistol (also from TCW), and the Blurgg-1120 pistol used by Hera Syndulla in Rebels. More weapons, vehicles, and possibly even heroes from outside the films would be great at fleshing out the game's content even further, whether it be at launch or as DLC.

    Maps that can only progress in two directions: forward or backward.

    Quarren, Ishi Tib, Rodian, Twi'lek, and the Sullustan are all Rebel skins I think should return. Skin variations of the Twi'lek need to happen. The Zabrak I simply don't care for. Good riddance.

  • I'd probably want most of the game modes, especially Walker Assault and Supremacy. Personally, I'd like to see Drop Zone and Droid Run back too, but definitely the bigger modes. Having some of the skins carry over would be great too, for instance, the scout trooper skin and some of the location-based rebel uniforms looked really nice.

    Same here. The only game modes that I don't play are Hero Hunt and any with Fighter Squadron. I only played Battle Station and Infiltration for Hutt Contracts. I do realize some people like them, but I personally wasn't a big fan of mixing them in with other modes. I'd say keep only one between Droid Run and Drop Zone. I prefer Drop Zone--especially on Bespin. I really hope Blast, Cargo, Sabotage, Supremacy, Turning Point, and Walker Assault stay.

    First of all, I want all the skins and customization options from the first game availabe in the new game too. I want male and female options, all the aliens, Shadow, Shock and Scouttroopers, pauldron color selection and so on.

    Then I want small quick modes like Blast and Dropzone and large modes like Walker Assault.

    I want all weapons from the first game too.

    I would like to see a few maps make a return too. Especially: Outpost Beta (Hoth), Battle of Endor, Dune sea Exchange (Tatooine), Swamp Crash Site (Endor), Rebel base (Hoth), ice caves (Hoth), Graveyard of giants (jakku). If possible I want the DLC maps Jabba's palace, carbonite freezing chamber and one of the Death Star maps too (as they are all pretty iconic locations and currently not available for offline play)

    Nothing makes me smile bigger than tea bagging the *expletive* out of a Rodian that combat rolls around and runs the DH17 w/ ES. Well, really any blaster with ES.
