    Theed again? Ugh. At least we get an OT space battle.

    Just Theed for ground and some space battle for the OT. Hopefully I will get to pilot Red Five there.

  • Can't wait for the beta, and the two day early access. Just wish we could see Kamino or Kashyyyk in beta

    So is the beta gonna be going from Oct 6-9 and then shut down?
  • Hats off to all you people saying "it's only Alpha" beta is 1 month from launch. What changes do you think will be made hmmm? Now we'll have an unbalanced launch. See you all on the forums. I look forward to your complaints about weak heroes.

    Most likely unless they extend it, which could happen. But, this means we have a better idea of when the closed beta will begin.

    there's no closed beta. The only other way you can play it now is if your lucky enough to go to GamesCon in August.
  • I knew it. I guessed the beta would be in October a while ago and it looks like my guess was right.

    Well that may happen but at least we are waiting to actually play before calling for changes.

    Yep, and I didn't see where it said the pre-order had to be one lump sum or in monthly payments. I know they made sure to make it a point to let people know with EA Access you get it early when it is released officially.

    Wait what? lol. Alpha is 3 months prior to Beta. That's a long time to balance stuff. Once we see Beta and have complaints, those will most likely carry into launch.
  • Called it.

    Pre-ordering is bad when you do it without being completely sold on the game. I notice Most people pre-oder hyped releases because it's popular rather than ordering it because they know they will play it often.

    I didn't pre-order BF1 but still love it. I pre-ordered BF2 because I KNOW I'm going to love playing it.

    Exactly you pre-ordering it because you know you'll play it. Not enough people do that when they pre-order

    I'm not sure where I saw that they were going to have a close beta, but now I can't find that info so you're probably right. I don't care how they do it, as long as I get to play in a beta at some point and they get the kinks ironed out as best they can before launch.

    Yeah, I don't know why so many seem to think they have a grasp on the game, which they likely have never played and are calling for changes. Play the game, then once you know for sure what you like or don't like, then make requests/demands.

    There's a lot of rumors that people will say as actual news when it comes to this game. You almost have to assume any rumors with this game are always wrong. :D

    Yeah, although I had gotten that info from what should have been reputable, but as with a lot of places covering this game, some were quick to push out info that wasn't entirely correct and they just go back and edit later. Not the best method for journalism, but these are games not serious world events. *shrug*

    Well from what we have seen of it the level is pretty spectacular but still. Not only has it been shown in the Trailer, EA Play, Alpha, Presumably more Trailers and now it will be the Level for the Beta

    It may even be the first level in The Clone Wars rotation :p

    Though, yes. The reason why they keep showing it is because it is a perfect contrast to the locations in BF(EA) it showcases Urban Star Wars warfare, and Theed's design is pretty interesting

    This is truth

    Never did like Hoth it was too much running into the Open with little cover. Though that is a fault of the location and not DICE
