    See thats the problem with soon. There were already ppl staying awake last night.

    Discussing changes is great but imo announcments should only come with a date attached.

    We post official downtime about 24hrs before the patch goes live. I stated 'soon' as it was not approved, therefore no date could be assigned to it. We had gotten approval to provide communication and in this case, I felt communicating ahead of time was more important than a date.

    I also stated downtime would be posted ahead of the patch going live.
    "so stay tuned for the official date announce of that going live. We will publish downtime and the full patch notes here once available."

    Look for the downtime update/announcement; once that is live, you will know the day the patch is coming.

    Regarding the communication, will we be able to submit questions again for the weekly Q&A’s soon?

    @Sledgehammer70 how are those dev responses coming along?

    They did say "in the coming week". So hopefully they'll stick to that.
  • For me, the "Being shot through walls" is above everything. Top priority to be fixed. I can count how many times I've been shot without even being close to the target line or even being seem. Many times I credited that to some sort of internet delay between the shooter pressing the button and me getting away, even though it might not be the case. But there are many, many times when it simply couldnt apply. I was clearly shot through a wall.

    Amen

    The intent was for the Q&A to be weekly. At this time many of the questions are irrelevant, but I am working with the team to answer as many as we can. We had a hiccup in getting the responses posted, working to over come that.

    But yes, I will be opening a new Q&A thread soon.

    Since you are answering questions....

    When is the patch releasing? If you answer you will win the communication war that Dennis started.

    Is "tweak" a synonym of 'nerf'?

    Not necessarily. They could nerf one aspect while buffing another to balancing things out. I think everybody forgets that is what it is all about. Getting a good balance. making "tweaks." Sometimes it's okay to make a character OP in certain areas, while super weak in other areas. We'll give you a cannon for a gun, but you're not going to be very mobile. That sort of thing.

    They can't give you an accurate date, because certification takes time. MS tends to be a bit faster than Sony on cert, but are also a bit more likely to reject patches. I remember waiting three months for a patch for Friday the 13th because it kept failing certification (due to causing memory leaks) at MS.

    Hopefully they tested it well enough to be sure it gets through, but even if that's the case unless it's been in review for a bit before the announcement I wouldn't expect it for about a week.

    As a side note, @Mr_Taver and I are working to bring a full 'Known Bug' list that will be published on the forums. That way everyone can see what our team is tracking and working against to get updated.

    While many of the reported bugs have been submitted and the team is working on them, its hard to find threads and tweet responses our team has responded to that let the community know the team is aware.
    https://battlefront-forums.ea.com/discussion/comment/894394/#Comment_894394
    Can you please make sure the team is aware of this? The card that increases Yoda's Presence duration doesn't appear to be working at all. Mine is epic, so I feel like I've wasted a ton of crafting parts until this is fixed. Thanks!

    We're aware of this reported issue.

    There’s also a bug that doesn’t allow players to choose lando as a hero in GA if another player is currently playing as han. Is the team aware of this? I haven’t noticed this issue reported since it seems rare that anyone ever chooses Lando or Han. As an avid lando player I can say I’ve experienced this bug a lot and it’s quite annoying.

  • I hope the bug where you can't block and jump has been recognised, happens a little less times than the no abilites bug, but have you ever been the target in HvV and had the inability to block,jump and use abilites, hurts man.
  • I hope in the fixes they fix the Assault CR2 Night Vision issue. No matter how many times you unequip the darn thing, next match, there it is! Fix plz...
  • The game is fantastic no doubt about it. But does it work. ?????????
    No
    Since the update it don’t work at all. Lagg, rubber band, controller failure. Menus fail. And so on.
    It’s nice of EA to thx us for telling what is wrong, but do they listen.
    It’s the same over and over again.
    Battlefront was full of failure, and it took you too long to nail them.
    Now the same happeneds in battlefront 2
    Calling your technical support is like talking to walls. And do they pass the information on.
    I think my money is spend wrong baying this game. Sorry to say it you have failed
  • Well, this is great. I’m glad we got some definite answers to the problems with this game. Thank you Sledge.
    Dead or Alive, I get paid either way......

    Because their metrics show them to be imbalanced compared to other things.

    Yeah because getting one shot from far away by a Blurrg officer wearing a thin jacket while playing as a heavy isnt annoying enough already...

    ^ If only they would release her ANH skin. There's no excuse. It shouldn't be difficult to animate her clothing. They can easily animate other skins, like the ones for Kylo Ren, Lando, and Palpatine. Unfortunately, (and this is true based on the data mining) her alternate skin is once again her Hoth outfit. Why? She was in more combat in her dress than her Hoth clothes.

    ^ Come on, DICE. This would be so cool. Or, do I have to rely on a mod? If that's the case then I have no problem with that.

    You cannot change a progression system 2 months after release. I still see the majority of people are in complete denial when it comes to this point and i think it really needs to be adressed better now than later.

    These are the possible results
    a) Its still not easy enough, causuals still complain

    b) Its now easy as ****, thus invalidating the 100ds of hours played by hardcore players and whales before the changes that will make them ragequit the game and with them the source of income from microtransactions where these 2 types of players make 90% of the income.

    c) If you try to fix this retroactively by giving players the difference for what they unlocked before the update
    (f.ex when crates cost 800 instead of 2200 credits after the update and you give 1400 credits for each crate that was baught before the update to the day 1 players)
    then they will have everything unlocked at maximum level the day the update hits and they have essentially finished the complete game which again leads to "ragequit the game and with them the source of income from microtransactions where these 2 types of players make 90% of the income."

    We will have one of two groups crying after such an update.

    They only way i can think off that might work is smth like providing double credits weekends in future seasons.
    But changing the price of crates, of star cards or even worse now basing star card upgrades through collecting a few kills all leads to catastrophy. Not to mention that Star Cards do not work like weapon unlocks in most games. If you have to level a specific hero starcard by using it but you only play galactic assault you will be forced to play HvV in order for it not to take 50 hours. In the diverse system of starcards such a system wont work.

    Yes please! My favourite hero.
  • They should Change his Force üush Is so slow (Animation) and it doesn't work really often.
  • They won’t remove the welfare points for joining a match so AFK Farming will continue.

    Thats one helluva trick though.

    Exactly - if you buff his blaster you need to decrease the power of the rocket barrage - or else he will be super OP - he's already one of the best with his one trick

    It will still blind people who aren't looking at her and it will slow them down, making it easier to get kills. You can also upgrade it to reveal people.
