Battlefront 2 beta, thrilled are you?

Who here thinks it'll reflect the final product for long? If so are you dying to get it no mater what? To those who do, a word of caution. Beta and final version of the game might significantly change over time.

    To an extent, yes. The pre-alpha they showed has a lot of truly awesome stuff, and a lot of it will either not change or just be slightly adjusted to better match the feel of what players want. Like... I expect some changes with the icons and such, just like the Star Card logos for the SWBF Beta looked different from the final version, stuff like that, you know? But, I don't expect too terribly many extreme changes, unless customers are extremely vocal about their opinions.

    Or pulse rifle's consistent accuracy. Ah good times. Then enjoy months of unfixed bugs. Now we're talking!

    And that nerf was a result of the bowcaster nerf, when really it was Bounty Hunter that needed a slight tweak.

    Things kept getting better, Bespin promised us skirmish and then came nothing but more bugs. Finally we got a pre alpha Skirmish and uber shot Lando for 2 months.

    I know exactly what you mean, this remind me of when they nerfed Boba Fett because players were still adjusting to the game, figuring out star cards and blasters so in turn they thought he was OP because they couldn't seem to come up with strategies to use that would easily take him out. Expect a lot of nerf herders after launch, I think nerf threads should be locked for at least a month so people can settle in the game and then come to a conclusion on the things that need to be changed and toned down

    And by nerfing devs get desperate and open new doorways to bugs and glitches. Over doing things has it's drawbacks.

    Cycler rifle had no place in the game anyway. It's not a common pool weapon either faction would have been inclined to use anyway. So seeing a Stormtrooper, of all people, is perhaps one of the most cringeworthy things to see. And it was perhaps as absurd as Homing Shot.
    Star Wars is about blasters and lasers flying everywhere. It should have remained that way, and this is another underlying concern of what players will really be able to use for Battlefront II.
    Battlefront I Beta Tester - I hope Battlefront II will be amazing by delivering; Space Battles w/ Infantry Boarding Parties, Stormtroopers w/ Helmets, 64 Player Mode, Hardcore Mode (Lightsaber 1HK), Fixed Squads, In-Game VOIP, Server Browser/Filter, Private Server Hosting, Mod Support and Clan Support.

    Yeah I can't wait. But I'll have to. For 4-5 months.
