    Don't care about this game anymore.


    2 weeks past since you said you unninstalled the game, and still here on several threads saying that 'you dont care anymore about the game'.

    SMH

    Where in the forums i said i unnistalled the game?
    Quote it please.

    The point still stands: You don't care anymore, yet here you are posting about how you don't care in a news thread.

    And yet you still quoting something i posted, listen, the truth is that there's no more happy news for this game, all that i read here is only mere speculation.

    Ha ha! What does me quoting you have to do with anything? What are you, 12?

    Somehow it makes it okay to post in a thread about news that you're finished with the game? Why are you still here if you're done? You prove yourself a liar by continuing to post on these forums. Stop posting irrelevant stuff on this thread. If it's not news, or discussion about said news, do not post here. No further discussion on this will be had.

    Note: "I'm done with the game." is not game news related discussion, it's an announcement of you quitting.

    Did someone beat you in the game fairly and you're upset? Was it not bugged or due to lag or a hack and it made you cry? Then please fill out this form and follow it's instructions for sending to the appropriate people.

  • Hey, this is in reference to the sound bug.

    It's about time. In my opinion the game shouldn't have been put out the door with that bug. To have been reported about from Alpha all the way through the end of Beta and still exist a year after launch is not cool. But I'm glad it is getting a fix finally.

    Engine Level ... LoL ... so many issues with DICE titles are at the "Engine Level". Wonder when the engine will get an overhaul and maybe improve the gameplay experience for their titles...
    Frostbite is a bit of a joke when it comes to actual game play mechanics...

    It's not necessarily the engine itself. Often it's the tools for making the game work on the engine, or making the engine do what they want it to do don't want to cooperate or just flat out suck. So if the tools aren't operating right because they were poorly built/optimized (like Origin) they'll have a hard time with it.

  • This may not be 100% related to BFII, but Jade Raymond (founder and head of Motive Studios that made the campaign mode) has left Motive and EA.

    I suspect that the same thing has happened with her as happened with Amy Henig; EA micromanagers forcing her and her team to change their Star Wars game to include MTXs, multiplayer, and other things that would all but ruin their game. So maybe this does have something to do with BFII since it's likely related to this game's biggest problem; EA.

    EA is really good at acquiring great studios and turning them in to Out of Business studios. They bring in great talent and crush their souls to make more money. Sad for the gaming community.

    Amy Henig created Uncharted.
    Jade Raymond created Assassin's Creed.
    Both of these talented women have left EA this year. 'Nuff said.
    They worked on those? That's awesome! Shame that they've been spat out by the corporate machination, just like Floyd said.

    I know Jade was also involved in one of the Tom Clancy games (Splinter Cell I think) and it seems that according to Wikipedia she was also involved with Visceral's infamous project... Wow.

    Yeah. This game is going downhill. Broken heroes, lousy map design, connection problems, lack of new content and poor communication to name just a few items. At least the chickens are working as intended.

    It does derail the thread, which is why I asked for it to be stopped. I do see now that the discussion was a couple of days old, so sorry on that.
  • I would like to post some more twitter info but last time I did it wouldn't post. Said it needed to be reviewed/approved. That was days ago. If we're getting yelled at for derailing a thread, maybe approving the posts that are on topic should be in order.

    I expect Star Wars HQ to make a 20 minute video about all the content that could be added which they'll frame as being definitively confirmed by Dennis thus disappointing everyone who watches the video when they realise it's not happening.
    Also, do people seriously not realise that most games of the shooter genre continue to be supported even though they no longer have any new content? They generally do continuous bug fixing and server maintenance to keep the game playable for a few years, so just because Dennis says they're not abandoning the game after the Anakin update doesn't mean there will be any substantive content like heroes, planets, skins, or even weapons. If anything, there might be more challenges and event weekends and maybe some new sectioned-off maps for existing modes, but I can't see this game making enough money off post-release game sales and skins to be able to fund the kind of substantive content people would want.

    Now this, this is the Obi-Wan and Grievous we've needed for so long. And if this is how these two react with each other, I can't wait to see how they interact with the cast overall, or between Obi-Wan and Anakin.

    I would say three thirty minute click bait videos featuring Mace Windu, Snoke, and Jango Fett in the thumbnails.

    Yes, unfortunately a lot of people are going to assume this means that the likes of Rex and Droidekas are all but confirmed even though the phrase "exploring tech" is more likely indicative of them trying to figure out how to do in a future game, not this one. It is, for logical thinkers, clear from this statement that this game doesn't have the capabilities for dual-wielding characters like Rex, Jango Fett, and ARC troopers, or transformable robots like droidekas, hence why devs are being allowed to try and figure it out on ther own time so they can implement it in a future game. But, of course, too many people don't or can't use any logic, so I guess #DroidekasConfirmed.

    I expect Star Wars HQ to make a 20 minute video about all the content that could be added which they'll frame as being definitively confirmed by Dennis thus disappointing everyone who watches the video when they realise it's not happening.
    Also, do people seriously not realise that most games of the shooter genre continue to be supported even though they no longer have any new content? They generally do continuous bug fixing and server maintenance to keep the game playable for a few years, so just because Dennis says they're not abandoning the game after the Anakin update doesn't mean there will be any substantive content like heroes, planets, skins, or even weapons. If anything, there might be more challenges and event weekends and maybe some new sectioned-off maps for existing modes, but I can't see this game making enough money off post-release game sales and skins to be able to fund the kind of substantive content people would want.

    It's all about damage control and righting the ship so ea can move forward with the franchise.

    Edit: to be more clear I'm saying I don't think the priority is making money off the game anymore as much as trying to make fans happy and get good will back so I don't expect content to be tied to income.

    If you think twitter and reddit exploded with that... Imagine what will happen when they process this:



    Emphasis on "transformable robots" and "dual wielding pistol tech"...

    Pffffffffff, I have better.

    This is a tongue-in-cheek joke based on the context of the quoted tweet. Nothing to get excited about.

    I think that link is relevant here (due to the discussion about the game updates post-Anakin):

    Yes, unfortunately a lot of people are going to assume this means that the likes of Rex and Droidekas are all but confirmed even though the phrase "exploring tech" is more likely indicative of them trying to figure out how to do in a future game, not this one. It is, for logical thinkers, clear from this statement that this game doesn't have the capabilities for dual-wielding characters like Rex, Jango Fett, and ARC troopers, or transformable robots like droidekas, hence why devs are being allowed to try and figure it out on ther own time so they can implement it in a future game. But, of course, too many people don't or can't use any logic, so I guess #DroidekasConfirmed.

    Don't assume they haven't been working on it long enough to have it mostly, if not completely, figured out yet. He didn't say when they started exploring it.
