....first look at new assault on Theed looks like what I hope would not happen ..... I bet 'people' will focus spending all their battle points on strafing from the air , buying tanks and droids :-( Skill Gap down the toilet ?

  • People did this in the first game. Token camping. It won't be as bad as you think it will be.
  • Id rather people earn the points to use vehicles and heroes than just crappy players camping and wasting them like most do.
  • Don't be ungrateful.

    Only thing I have against this is that you seem to get points too quickly and easily. There were way too many heroes just make it harder to get and it looks great.
  • I hope that there are restrictions in final game just how many things of a type can be in the battle at one time regardless if you have the points to spend - how do you balance anything otherwise? We will have to see otherwise the old token camping trollers don't even have to camp - they just spend all their money

    I think you should just stick to 2005 BF2 because you haven't stopped complaining about this game yet and it just came out of pre-alpha

    You talking to me ? I love BF 2015 play it every day ( never ever played 2005 BF2 ) Just frustrated like many it got messy from very avoidable mistakes IMO ( eg Serial Straffers on open infantry maps with no effective Ground to Air .

    Based on gameplay videos it looks like there are restrictions.

    My one hope is that battle points can be transferred between matches, that way if you didn't get a chance to play as a hero in one match you don't have to start from scratch to become a hero the next match.

    My initial feeling is that this is a great system that is balanced to all players and not just 'players who know where the stupid hero token is'.

    Is my signature really that annoying? :trollface:

  • Yeah but it's still better than camping tokens. Hopefully the beta will reveal more
  • Things like the B2 SBD, jet trooper or light vehicles should be pretty cheap to spawn in as, while Heroes, big vehicles etc. should cost alot of points, but i'd say DICE will have the resource system pretty well refined before release.

    @Old_fella_1963 Yes, go to your profile settings -> signatures and there is somewhere a check box to hide signatrues.

    There is a limit. If you watched the livestream you'd know that

    Really hope these battle points can't be purchased through micro transactions
  • I think it is a great change.

    You get them by playing the match, they do not transfer to over matches. It's literally impossible to buy them even if they wanted.

    And do you know what alpha means? It means Feature Complete. They'll do some tweaking, crunch content and fix bugs from now on. The major design work is finished. This is what the game is going to be like. They aren't going to completely change it before release.
  • Having seen more you tube Videos I'm become more worried that Hero and Vehicle Trollers will be sitting in (re-spawn) screens as there will be more of the troll resource available . I detest with a passion the possibility in PVP online games allowing 1 or 2 people from the safety of distance ( with few means to get them ) to rain down death on the people facing it up at the business end ( fine with it against bots )

    At least now they need to earn them rather than win the race to the token.

    Too me, it looked like there were limitations for special spawns in the stream and other videos. I saw maybe 3 fighters per faction in the air at a time. 2 AATs and 2 AT-RT's. Maybe 4 B2's and Jump Trooper's at a time. I'm sure they will also add a number by the unit to say how many are available at that time. Also if I heard correctly, they will be further balancing battle points gained by playing special units.

    I think that could well be easier than racing for the token - that's my worry

    Dennis confirmed that the price for these rewards will change, probably to be more expensive. And don't forget these "people" will have to be good enough to earn those points​. Dennis also confirmed there is a cap for all the special characters.

    They won't you can only get battlepoints in the match you are currently playing in. Battlepoints do not carry over from previous matches.

    I'm confused are you complaining about people playing as tanks, droids and air? On Theed it looks like there is plenty of cover and only a few passages where it would be easy to attack ground troops from the air.

    Doesn't the fact that heroes have less health balance it out though? I mean everyone will have the opportunity to play as the tankier units but not everyone will be playing them at once.

    I didn't even run into many tanks or planes when I played. Plus the Jet Trooper is a bit better than the B2 if you can use him correctly

    It was exactly on the theed map that I saw how easy the starfighters could strafe and that infantry were very exposed as they had to be in these areas to - one of the game changer players showed it
  • I think the system will work fine. The points will need to be earned and at a slower rate than shown at wa play. This will discourage 'trollers'.

    It was boosted in the beta so people could play as heroes more often.

    I hope they add some limitations on special units.
  • I think the trolling and camping would be alleviated if there were server browsers with either rented/privately owned servers with active admins that can kick players who are trolling.

    Grabbing a fighter and strafing isn't trolling.

    It is annoying, mainly because ...
    I can barely hit the ground strafing much less a player :'(

    I will be hoping to lay trip mines in all the big arches for low fliers!
  • I actually like the battle points system. It allows every player be heroes and B2 Battledroids or tanks... and not just the campers

    I hope you can actually do that it would be awesome! Does anyone know if you can throw them far?

    Theoretically you do not need to as placed vertically a craft has no choice but to break the mine's beam flying through the arch

    They need to PTO to earn those points, I don't see any paradise for trolls

    They've confirmed that they reset each match. Otherwise people will just hoard points and then be the hero fifty times and fewer people will get a go.

    I think the ships and elite troops will have a limit of how many of them can be present on the Battlefront.
