Guards Should Be Reinforcements

If Guards (such as the Republic Guard, MagnaGuard, Honour Guard, Royal Guard, Unknown Resistance Guard, and the Elite Praetorian Guard) make their way into the game, which would be great, then they should be introduced as another Reinforcement instead of a specific heroes' Bodyguard like in BF2015. This way, they'd have a much better chance of being playable and useful (ie defending objectives as well as heroes), rather then only getting the chance to use them when a certain hero entered the field - which would be an annoyingly rare chance like in the previous game.

Is this something a lot of you guys want?

  • Yes please
  • I imagine them to be a "Guard" or "Melee" type of Reinforcement class.

    Yeah I'm assuming they'd still have a type of blaster, but would have a decent melee weapon / moves. Don't know how exactly Dice will do it (if they do), but would be great to use them and see them on the field.

  • I definitely like it, anyway to introduce more units adds more variety and makes things more interesting. It would definitely make them more useful as reinforcements than tying them to a particular hero, which would make them so rare that it would mean investing anything into their builds would be pretty pointless.

    They could have them main a blaster, then have melee weapons as abilities (like Captain Phasma), or switch those 2 around.

    Yeah that'd be great. Maybe even no regeneration but a lot more hp and defence, making them a bit more unique to the rest.

  • What about no blasters, but increased health and permanent infiltration/vanguard speed, for balance purposes?

  • Ya, the speed boost would prly be considered OP. Just melee tho, blasters would ruin it, the emperor’s guards didn’t carry any, last I checked.

    Tell me about it man, it's the reason why this game has been getting such a bad rep - tryhard scrubs jumping on the "I haven't even played the game / I've played it for 5 mins / I'm not a good gamer" complain band wagon

    I love the idea of guards being reinforcements, but maybe they could also get some sort of boost when standing near their "hero", like boosted defense for royal guards when near palpatine, or boosted speed for magnaguards when near grievous? Also can't wait to see these guys in.

    I'd still rather have them only be available when their hero is on the field. I don't want to see The Emperor's Red Guard showing up when the Emperor isn't there.

    Also, Leia's guards should look like actual Alderaanian Honor Guards, not just Alliance Captains with their visors down. Long olive tunics, white vibrolances.

    Vader could have blue-marked 501st Captains, that'd be cool. Lando could have Wing Guards. Etc.
  • And when they bring Anakin and Obi-Wan in, they could give them Rex and Cody, respectively. Grievous could have his IG-100 Magnaguard Elites.

    That would be freaking awesome
  • im all for having them in the game. the more content the better!

    But they should still not stand a chance against a saber hero, unless they cost around 5k credits. Saber heroes are already at mercy of any trooper who decides to roll lol
  • Senate guards (the blue ones), magna guards, Leia's guards, Red guards, not sure on resistance, then snokes guards. Easy peasy, make it happen.
  • My thoughts are they for sure need full health regen and lots of health. I also think they should for sure be melee based, but if not a melee ability will substitute. They should either be enforcers or their own class called Gladiator, guards or something and be very powerful and cost 4k battle points. They could also spawn on heroes, but should cost points and maybe be even more powerful if this is the case since they would be extremely rare. If this is the case it should cost 5k battle points to spawn on their respective hero, but they should have permanent speed boost like the heroes and team buffing abilities which also buff themselves like upgraded battle command for the officer. Some abilities could be the toughen up ability, fortify, Vader's middle rage ability, speed boost,or infiltration. They could have a block or a staff throw possibly too.
    I no longer use this account or anything Battlefront related as of 08/07/2018.

    As long as cross era is a thing, who cares if guards are on the battlefront without their hero.
