    The secret-not public-only dice knows-list apparently put skins above starfighters contents even if on public threads is the opposite.

    We lost guys, there is no reason to fight anymore an already lost battle.

    But in some cases, even a battle that seems lost can be turned around.

    In Star Wars, it was The Battle of Endor.

    In real life, it was the launch of this game.

    There was a lot of anger of the launch of this game and many people abandoned it. Now 2+ years later, this game made a complete turnaround and people are coming back.

    Yes, but I think it's obvious that there is some reason why they are abandoning starfighters.

    Sure is not the interest of the players (it's incredible that after all this time there is still lot of people playn on the same 6 maps with the same starfighters... If this is not interest, I don't know what it is), otherwise they would do a minimum effort fixing the heroes starfighters mode and adding 2-3 starfighters each team on capital supremacy. This things would require just a very small effort, but still they are not doing it.

    It should be something else that they don't want (or more likely , "can't") share.

    Maybe they really don't know how to do without criterion or they have difficulty balancing the gameplay.
    Then they monetize with skins, and starfighters can't have skins with the same appeal of heroes and reinforcements to spend money on.



  • I agree that our best bet is to pray for a starfighter game and that DICE has nothing to do with it
  • Well, 3x XP this week end is good! I just leveled up my first Falcon (Rey) and my last dark side heroes to 40. Still some work around with the other Falcons...
    If anyone is playing on PS4 this WE, expect me to be around for some SFA games.

    Let's try to keep the discussion on topic, SA/Hero SA only, so we don't give anyone a reason to close the thread.

    More maps please, and rework Hero SA to TDM with the ability to respawn as hero ships.

    ... And possibly being part of CS too!
  • I would like more occasions to level up my heroes in SA... heroe SA is a mess. Too much waiting time. Best way to level up heroes is playing SA but sometimes, level up in SA is quite difficult...

    If it was it's own phase, or an optional phase, great. As much as I want new starfighter content in some capacity, I think it's only fitting that the ground pounders deserve a large scale mode of their own, without threats from the sky. GA is great to mix the two elements, but CS feels like it belongs to the "boots on the ground" mains.

  • I played some Starfighter Assault today and was pleasantly surprised by the amount of newer players (players with green and blue cards) in the games. And the lobbies filled up pretty quickly after matchmaking started. I hope the mode stays strong even though we only have the 6 maps and haven't had any content added in such a long time.
    Better album: Achtung Baby or The Joshua Tree?

    That does sound like fun. Playing as a starfighter is awesome, strafing ground troops is not.

    Yes yes
  • They say surveys only give them an idea on what to do for new content yet they just keep claiming that SFA ranking low on the surveys is why they don't add more to it.

  • Surveys aren't absolute truth ! Keep asking for SFA awesome content !
    Remember they also said "plans do change".
    Hopes and make your voices heared until Last development Day !

    Even though it looks amazing, the gameplay is horrible. Don't get me wrong it feels great, the objective based gameplay and all but it's utterly unrealistic. On PC it's just point and click everyone to death. You can move the mouse cursor around independent of the ship's center axis, i think on consoles you have to aim with the whole ship at least. This mode deserves a seperate game with Frostbite engine, throttle and stick, shield management, track ir support and so on.

    We need lots of contents, but I'm not confident that we'll see any...

    If survey are so important for dice, remember what to do in the next one pilots.

    Genin, standing by.
  • Sad how arguably the most competently made mode in the game was silently abandoned.

  • More than 500 hundred positive bots, I hope DICE finally see pilots as a big parte of the community at last... Even if I will not play anymore this game, this attempt deserve support so I will continue to stick around.

    Kudos, man.

    For whenever I do important Starfighter related posts on Reddit, I have a list of supporters who want to see more content for Starfighter Assault.

    So far there’s around 215 people on the list for Reddit alone, and I only wonder how many more there are across the several forums for BF2.

    Edit: I did not realize that you were talking about Reddit upvotes.

  • It's happening!
  • Im willing to bet we'll see no mention of SFA and Extraction in the next survey... just more ratings for Heroes and asking about toxic players
