    Don't want to set myself up for disappointment, so i'm just hoping for the same level of information provided back at EA Play 2016.

    [Some first order game mechanics that should have been included since skins were introduced]

    Change skins in game.

    Make emotes unlockable; “legendary” skins aren’t worth the money if you can’t use the “legendary” effects (i.e., voice changes with emotes), or change the skin per map. Stop selling these things if they don’t fully function.

    Also, Stop nerfing Rey, it’s not like the Darkside has any shortage of offensive abilities; why nerf one of the few offensive abilities on the Lightside??

    Kamino and Kashyyyk are toxic for HS. Surely you see the push spam on a daily basis, no? Endor would be great. The promised Crait map- @TonyGoombah1 How about a throne room from RotJ, or TLJ - @lerodemmy

    Lastly, fix Maul’s “fixed” saber. Its hit box is still not functioning properly or consistently against heroes or troopers.

    Excited for extraction on the new maps, thanks!

    Off on vacation, see some of you in a couple weeks. Will be interesting to come back after the dust has (hopefully) settled after the release of season 2.2, ha!

    +1 please fix/make better. Horizontal throw or a small lock on would be great.

    Well the han solo trailer got released so there’s got to be something else they are announcing
    "Oh well it's my programming." -Battle droid Star Wars Clone wars Ep 1
  • Hopefully a fight scene with Obi Wan and Grevious similar to the first trailer had with Yoda and Maul.

    Emotes that start the animation instantly or quicker animation altogether, as opposed to (what they currently are) where the character stops and remain motionless before the emote starts.

    I'm looking forward for customization for 2015 battlefront offline still.
  • Why did this post not give the location of EA play?

    Also if anyone thinks that they will announce anything but season 2 of solo there they are dreaming.
  • Walker Assault and or another large scale mode like Turning Point and Supremacy.
    New SA maps/modes with new starfighters like the B-wing and TIE Defender.
    New GA maps/modes with new speeders and armored ground vehicles.
    Sullust maps.
    New heroes like Obi Wan.
    Droids, both hero and standard Astromechs/Viper droids.
    New weapons.
    Hutt contracts.
    The ability to change skins between matches.
    Shock Trooper, Shadow Trooper, Rebel and Empire pilot skins.
    Vehicle skins.

    That's a lot of hope.

    If they announce at least two new heroes and one new GA map I'll be happy. Anything else will be a bonus. Hoping they surprise us with content that hasn't been spoiled/leaked. Gender options for troopers and more trooper skins would be great.

    All you have to do is search for tickets.

    Also you're wrong, season 2 was already revealed.

    The second part? I don't see the news here. Granted I've been traveling the last week And a half.
  • I am hoping for
    Heroes- Anakin, Kenobi, Grievous, Dooku, Mace, and Jango (Not in that order).
    Maps- Utapau, Geonosis, and Mustafar (for HvV).
    New Vehicles.
    New Guns.
    Way more new Skins for heroes, troopers, and possibly vehicles (I am talking around or above 50; 10 for each class and then 10 for the heroes).
    Conquest
    This is my wishlist. Not to much to ask for.

    Unfortunately cannot give a specific time as things shift and it would be disappointing to mislead, your best bet is to watch the livestream at 11:00 PDT on June 9TH. Don't worry if you're not able to however as we will relay all the news once revealed and we will also likely have the function to replay the entire livestream too.

    The replay would be great, thanks!

    Well, it's already been revealed as pointed out by t0talfps and ben has confirmed multiple times they will talk about other stuff at ea play.

  • I'm actually really exited, mainly because it's very likely that we'll get a tease for clone wars. We don't need more content announced, but anything related to clone wars would bring a lot of people back to the game.

    Id prefer content be announced. One of my main issues is how vague and infrequent announcements are.

    Not saying anything just gives us time to build expectations, whereas point blank saying whats coming gets it over with.

    I'll keep an eye on it.

    Hopefully we'll see some more information about future Arcade improvements, such as a 20v20 objective mode with vehicles and reinforcements (and maybe, just maybe AI Heroes). Maybe not at EA Play, but at some point.
    To think that once I could not see beyond the veil of our reality, to see those who dwell behind.

    Fix for GA since it is always overwhelmingly one sided.
    New SA maps.
    Ability to purchase (with credits) hero emotes and poses.
    No xp gained unless player finishes match.
    Anakin only as a skin for Vader since he is the same person.
    Player shuffling after each map for all modes.
    Stuns such as Landos and Chewys should be broke if attacked. Nothing worse than stun and shot dead from full health and not being able to do anything about it.
