    Yep,they should.
  • Yup, definitely.
  • It'd be my preference....but hey, I guess 'fun' wins out?

    Although the argument that 'more hero choices within a gamemode=more fun" doesn't exactly hold a lot of water. Anybody remember the poo storm that arose from DICE adding more heroes to Extraction? People ran from the mode in droves.
  • Yes but not during heroes vs villains

    For the main modes yes.

    Hero modes and an infantry mode or 2 with it are fine.

    If they give us custom games, let people mix and match whatever they want.

  • For big modes yes, but I'm down with cross era Hero modes.
  • For big modes yes, but I'm down with cross era Hero modes.

    I think they've confirmed at least one cross era hero mode, but yeah for big modes the heroes should be era locked.

    Yes, I want Heroes to be locked to their respective Trilogy Era, in regards to general Multiplayer Modes that have Heroes within them, but aren't specifically Heroes v. Villains Only Modes

    I only want Cross-Mixing for Hero v. Villain Only Modes

  • Both, yes and no.

    Yes, because it would ruin the immersion of actually playing in the battle of certain scenes from the Star Wars movies.

    No, from a gameplay point of view. It actually also depends on how many heroes and villains from each era there are.

    Dennis said that there will be more than two heroes and villains playable in Galactic Assault during any match. Honestly, I would prefer two categories for cross-era play or no cross-era play.
  • Yes but not during heroes vs villains

    ^Exactly this.

    We have plenty of "authentic" star wars games that are so specific to each era. We need a crazy sandbox game that has whatever you want to throw together (within reason). Also immersion is overrated. Fun trumps cannon any day

    Look at what you put in parentheses: the most important part of this entire debate.

    What would YOU define as 'within reason'? 'Cause 'crazy sandbox' is pretty wide open.

    Not about balance. Its about authenticity and feeling wrong.

    Taking heroes out of their era stops it being fun.

    Custom games and hero modes. That is it.

    They have already mentioned that the heroes would be locked to their specific eras but that they have cross era modes too which is what you saw in the EA Play stream of game play this past weekend.

    If you are going to talk about "Authenticity" leave out Darth Maul, clones and everyone else.

    Your "immersion" concept is silly, and my answer is NEVER!

    It's apparently in a 'decision hasn't been made which/how many modes yet' kinda stage.
  • For the Assault mode, and all the larger game modes, yes.

    Right.. Because the prequels aren't authentic star wars? Give it a rest.

    Yah! and Club Sandwich Darth Maul arrive at the nick of time to kill clones While MCPalp Battle Rap with Snoop Vader.

    Where's the Authenticity?

    Yes 100000%. If the soldiers of the Empire can't fight against the Republic than why should heroes be allowed to cross eras? I think you should ONLY be allowed to play cross era gameplay in skirmish and private matches... AND OF COURSE cross ear hero gameplay should be also allowed in a all out heroes vs villains game mode on multiplayer.
  • Nope not at all. I wanna play as the Emperor on Starkiller base or as Darth Vader on Naboo. Bring it!

    You could probably do that in hero modes like HvV.

  • Era locked heroes in large modes would be my preference as well. As usual, way more people want heroes only in their own eras, hero modes excluded.

    Watching the stream that Dennis did with Battlefront updates makes me think we will see era mixing with heroes though. He mentions how we will be seeing more than two heroes per side in the matches. At this point I honestly doubt we are going to get enough heroes at launch to support that without era mixing. This is especially true of the Sequel Trilogy era. With the announcement that Finn and Phasma are going to be DLC and not in the base game, I suspect that Rey and Kylo will be the only Sequel heroes at launch.

    I agree with the majority, only certain hero based game modes should have cross/era heroes. The rest should be locked down.

    No more Rey on Naboo.

    No more Boba Fett killing clones. (Basically killing himself like WTF)

    Well, I agree with you about the cross era thing, but Boba killing "himself" isn't really a valid argument... since Jango will be doing that even without cross era.

    And Boba has compassion for clones, as you can see in The Clone Wars.
