Are you guys insane? That's way too much especially sense the last phases are smaller. On the last phase of Naboo people are getting stunned and flying everywhere from force attacks. I didn't buy this game to be in a laser volleyball party.

    It's only the last phase and it's awesome.
    If you didn't buy this game for the hero emersion then I don't know what to tell you.

    I love heroes...But 8 is overkill...especially in such a small setting
    I love farming 40k BP and spawning in heroes back to back in the final phase, it's truely awesome

    The games don't always even make it to the last phase. So it's something that only happens for a short period of time, and it is also something that doesn't happen every game.

    I never paid attention, is it really 5 enforcers? How many aerials are allowed? It sounds like regular troops are actually outnumbered.

    Its tied to the enforcer limit.

    Im not a fan of the last phases primarily because of this but it’s good to give everyone the chance to play heros and change the gameplay up.
  • I have the same complaint OP. The real problem is how easy heroes are to get, IMO. It’d be one thing if you could actually exhaust a team’s supply of battle points with superior play, but you can’t.

    Most players have enough BPs for at least one if not two heroes by last phase, so there are potentially thirty-plus heroes waiting in the wings. You kill one hero, another immediately pops up in his place, meaning there are always four.

    It's 5 but given how little use aerials have and how WWs literally decide the outcome of the battle by themselves any competent team will have 5 of these abominations and cheese their way to victory.

    I hate it, haven't played GA in months because of the ridiculous hero spam at the end. (Though I've heard that with the 2x BP boost being broken or removed, it's not as bad lately.) I'm definitely not a fan of heroes in general.

    I absolutely didn't buy this game for the heroes. I wanted Star Wars Battlefront, not Star Wars Overwatch.

    I bought this game for the same reason I bought all the other Battlefront games -- infantry battles in the Star Wars universe. Until EA got their hands on the title a couple years ago, heroes were never really much of a big deal in Battlefront. They were sort of the cherry on top of the cake. But now more and more, EA is trying to give us a cake made of cherries. If I wanted cherries, I'd just go and buy a bag of cherries.

    If any other game company had gotten hold of the license they would've put a big emphasis on heroes as well.

    You have....absolutely.....no way of confirming such a statement.

    Agreed with OP. Heroes are ridiculous. There needs to be way less of them allowed at once on the battlefield. It’s exactly why I stay away from GA these days... too many magical force powers for a trooper like me.

    I’ve actually started to play Counter Strike again... still a good game after all these years :heart: and no special Rambo or Terminator heroes ruining the FPS skilled fun
  • Guys, you might want to remember that after the CW Season, there will be TEN HEROES PER SIDE in GA. That is HALF of the number of players on each team!
    Add more Extraction and Hunt maps please!

    What the ROADMAP should look like for 2019/2020:
    “Season” 4: Rogue One
    “Season” 5: Clone Wars Revival
    “Season” 6: Episode IX

    So if you’re complaining about it now, it is only going to get worse. If you never get to play heroes in GA but are always so close to getting the last one, you should rejoice.

    A team can only have 2 heroes at a time prior to the last phase, it goes to 4 on the final phase but no more then that.

  • guys, don't pretend that every single game you play makes it to the last stage. id say, like, half of the games get there.

    and comparing this game to overwatch? come on, man. not even close. we can split hairs all day about it... but overwatch? dude....
  • I don't mind actually, makes things seem very chaotic in the end.

  • More hero's for What? 4 is fine imagine kamino last phase that's a nightmare or takodana, endor. Kashykk might work but then again no cause the defending team prolly has enough points to keep 8 hero's on the battlefront defending the last objective. It's fine where it's at.

    Once these new heroes come out. I wouldn’t mind having:
    Phase 1: max 2 heroes
    Phase 2: max 3 heroes
    Phase 3: max 4 heroes (or maybe even 5)

    Good grief man just play Heroes vs Villains.
  • No it's fine where it's at. 4 hero's is good you want more hope for a hero deathmatch
  • I believe this is one of the drawing points of this game. Without the heroes, we would be looking at a bland and very average fps game here.

    Depends on what you mean by "works"

    works as in getting the victory, well yes.

    Works in the context of good game design? I don't think so, this WW situation is probably the worst balancing I've ever seen in gaming.

    As an infantry player who doesn't really play Heroes that often - I'm fine with it. I think some objectives would be hard to push into without at least two heroes, and since the BP multiplier isn't working I think the situations actually got better - OK, the phase might start with four, but it fairly quickly goes down to two or three and hovers around there. Ok, maybe four seems a little overkill on certain maps - Endor, for example,as there's only one objective rather than two or three, but then it's a large 'stand to capture' one.
    As long as the four stays in the final phase, and it's a max of two in the others, I'm fine with it. The final phase tends to be over a larger area, anyway - I'm not sure hat you're talking about there, apart from Naboo.

    It isn’t the heroes, again, bf15 did it right and it worked well, it’s the number of heroes, the bp system, and the way they’re implemented in the game that’s the problem imo.
  • Hey dont like all the heros in the last phase, go play blast or strike!

    Haha what? Those floating tokens were the right way to do it? Hell no haha.
    At least now, instead of relying on knowing where the tokens will be you have to earn the heros. Good players should be rewarded.

    Tokens, BPs doesn’t matter to me. If they’d just create a large mode for the people that like the FPS aspect of the Battlefront franchise they could put 8 hero’s a side in GA and I wouldn’t care

    Due to the small setting, they should die fast. Unless its a really good Bossk, Yoda, Finn or Vader they usually die in the bonfire of grenades and imploders.

    the last phases are the best! Nothing like a good stalemate that ends with only one hero left cause everyone is out of BPs

    I do. I am just saying that if they only allow 4 heroes in the final phase of GA, then maybe in a larger Conquest mode they will allow more.

    Nah I think it might be 6 per team at any time. Any more than that, even on a team of 32, I think would be a bit much really.
