My thoughts on changes id like to see.

Have been playing for quite a while now, and though id give my feedback about the things I think should be changed, feel free to add yours or disagree.



MINOR GRIPES:

--- Laser bolts dont seem as cinematic as swbf1. They look anorexic and and are extremely fast. Can understand the snipers lasers travelling faster, but the others should be in line with swbf1.

--- I think there should be some better cosmetics for each class, because it feels a bit bare bones here.

--- Most lightsabers look too fat and rounded at the end. I think they should be a bit thinner and a bit more pointy.

--- Cant open career unlocks between matches. Have to exit a match just to open a career unlock for a scope.

--- Takes an eternity to go back to the menu, not sure if this can be fixed but it is a bit annoying.

--- Can we remove the different score cost for heroes on maps? Just make them all 6k. Its already rare you get to use a hero, and also be on the right team for the one you want or have star card for, this isnt fun. I dant care if its thematically correct if these heroes were fighting here in this fictional universe, would rather just see all these diferent heroes from different eras clash, and just play the ones I want.

--- I think the game looks a tad washed out, is there any way to saturate the colors a little more and make them more vibrant? (especially the lasers)

--- I think some serious work needs to go into fixing the "pop-in" effect of all foliage and world items. I can visibly see a circle around my player where the grass does not spawn, I can see big object just disappear all the time like tree stumps etc. Honestly this really is one of the worst I have seen. Games like For Honor have absolutely mastered this, I wonder is there a way to make the transition smoother?

--- As for "content" in this game, I think you have done an excellent job in terms of maps and the cool cutscenes before-after rounds, impressed and definately satisfied here. BUT I also feel a bit let down by the number of weapons per class, 3 if you dont count the starting weapon, cmon. Also I think the number of lightsaber heroes was tremendously light too. I remember hearing there was going to be HEAPS of lightsaber heroes, but theres only 6. I hope you can focus on bringing quite a few more in the coming DLC's.

--- I would like to see the option in settings to "switch R1+L1 with R2+L2 for infantry", this is a basic setting in other shooters and its missing here. Some people find the triggers to be worse for sniping as they are less responsive.

GAMEPLAY CHANGES:

--- Playing as a lighsaber hero, if I swing at an enemy that is walking backwards its like my lighsaber has 1 foot of reach even though I can see the lightsaber visibly pass through soldiers. I think the swing area of effect needs to be a lot bigger. Clunky.

--- Im not a fan of the way gunplay has changed in this game. (I like the classes though) but It feels like every gun is just some super innacurate hose you spray and hope to kill. This is a part of the game that feels quite shallow to me.

--- Specialist class feels very weak and pointless on a number of fronts. The gadgets are frankly terrible, everyone else gets sick grenades or turrets, and we get a poor grenade, a useless pistol, a no damage shotgun lol. One thing anyone who plays battlefield should know, is how absolutely important having a good secondary handgun is for a sniper, and the only one you can use is a damage over time weak as hell pistol. Now you have also nerfed their health too, cause why not. infiltrator is decent, but honestly is about as decent as having access to a sidearm for 5 seconds every minute or so, and if you run out while fighting someone, it takes like 2 seconds to switch back to your sniper, ugh. Also point gain on this class is so bad.

Im almost always at the top of the scoreboard or first to the heroes when I play all 3 other classes, but this class feels miles behind the others. Im also upset at how bad the snipers are, there isnt ANY that can ohk headshot? because this game is such an ADHD sprintathon, all you get is hitmarkers before people dolphin dive into the bushes never to be seen again, even if you shot them in the face. Can we please get some slower firing snipers that can OHK headshot, and can we please just give the class a weak pistol that does not take up a card slot? Like quite a good bit weaker that officer pistols, but just something to push up with.

--- Heroes abilities dont seem to work on some cheaper killstreaks. Like those open top walkers, yo cant force pull or push people on them.


Other than this it is a good game. On a seperate note, Im not a fan of the lootbox system you guys implemented and I hope you can find a way to make it cosmetic in future. This was definately a step too far, and had I not preordered on ps4 I would have cancelled over it, I am glad you are going to take steps to change it as best you can for this game.

Anyway thats my thoughts, cheers.

  • Craft parts as a reward at the end of each match. 1% of your score. Would help with progression still be about 10 matches to get one good card
  • The NT-242 will OHK everyone besides reinforcements to a headshot. It's a bit of a grind to get it, 500 kills with specialist. I think I headshot a Jetpack Trooper Clone and he had 82 health left after a headshot so that gives you a idea of how much damage that can do. Other than that, it will two shot Assault, Heavy and Officer and of course one shot them to the head. Specialist it doesn't even matter, it does over 100 damage and will one shot a Specialist even if you smack em in the foot.

    As for other areas.. they took the micro transactions out recently and are looking to improve the progression system. They also said that they are in the works for more customization, I'd recommend checking out Star Wars HQ on youtube to keep up to date on all things Star Wars.
  • Support all your ideas + a progresssystem thats not pointless. Make it somehow "worthy".

    Thanks for the reply. In that case, that seems great that the last sniper is the one im looking for, getting close to unlocking it. thanks ill give that a look on youtube, i didnt know they had planned customisation as I though it might have been an issue with disney but thats good news.
  • i dont get why people wanted classes then complain its too limited, not enough customisation, too little weapon choice, cant use enough or use all star cards with a specific class....

    this is what you wanted when you forced them to junk the old BF and go for classes people! i told you that you would not like it. i told you also that nobody would miraculously begin to team play just because classes now.

    i was 100% right on both counts. i bet the developers are throwing their hands up in despair, and i bet EA accountant running the whole corporation is wondering whether to junk this game early too, and not bother with a third.
