Time to toss in the towel

I have been defending this game since Battlefront 2015. Not many people I knew played it, and I loved it from the beginning. But this kind of game we are experiencing now is not what we were promised. We want communication, updates, and fresh content. We were told free DLC and we got a large map and a small map. Crait was definitely finished before launch, so all we really truly got for DLC was the Solo season. The wait for Geonosis is far too long. We need dates, we need the service that we were promised, and we need constant hot fixes to fix what keeps getting broken. Skins need to be added, they were in the last game and somehow forgotten about in this one. Hero skins should not be that hard to come up with. I love this game, I enjoy this game. But how can I keep playing when I sit here and just wait? I can't defend this game anymore, what I expected from this game is totally different from what we got. I appreciate the work that went into this game. It is enjoyable, fun, accurate, and its graphically stunning. I don't appreciate that the upcoming content is what we should've had at launch, and I don't appreciate the lack of communication that is continuously promised to us.

    I'm still clinging on to that last noodle of hope that around the start of the Clone Wars season some of the devs will move back to Battlefront and we'll get some nice content drops going into 2019, however unlikely.
    I just find it a shame how much the launch of this game hurt it. I think the media played no small part in it - I don't think many people would have known it was going to be 'pay to win' or have lootboxes if they weren't already paying attention to Battlefront if it hadn't been for the media. I know it's a good thing that now there's stuff against p2w and gameplay MTX, sure, but did it have to be this game that got hurt because of it? Then there was the whole fiasco with 'oh EA is the most hated company on Earth they got the most downvotes comment on Reddit' (because it became a meme to downvote it, it started as a few people who actually cared about Battlefront down voting then somehow blew up and people who only came on Reddit for adult content or r/awww or memes or whatever started down voting it). And they had to re-monetise the game because of the bad initial system. And rework the progression system. Then because it wasn't doing very well, they pulled devs from the game when it needed it most...
    So yeah, the managing of this game was pretty terrible basically from launch, even before. Like I said, there's just this little shred of hope that they can pull a No Man's Sky and turn it round into a popular game which works properly, and gets decent and consistent content.

    I am ROMG4 or is ROMG4 me? If I am ROMG4 who am I? If ROMG4 is me who is he what is he? If I am him who or what am I?

    If this is conscious does that mean I know I am ROMG4 or not, is ROMG4 me? or Is it not

    Fosho, bo4 looks good and blackout looks interesting if they can get it to run right, kinda up in the air about bf5 but I’ll try it. RD2 is just gonna be sick though, can not wait for that one.

    I still can't belive that nearly since the launch of the game November 2017, we don't have new heroes. I don't count Phasma and Finn, they were done before. It is just shocking and a shame. In Battlefront 2015, we already had 4 new heroes, 1 new planet but a lot of new maps, new Blasters and skins, and more important, we knew in September we were getting Death Star Dlc.
    But in this Battlefront, we still don't have any month confirmation about the new content, and most ironic, they put Anakin and Dooku in Winter, which could be 2019. And recently they are talking about the voice lines for Grievous, which makes me think, Anakin and Dooku haven't been started yet. I don't want to mention Palatine and Double XP and matchmaking server cause these is ridiculous for a billionaire company. So what the **** is going on then?

    This game had 7. And no post launch heroes right now. 1 more hero for like what, 3 companies working all together? Horrible launch. Worse than Battlefront 2015.

    So you defend the launch, really? I don't care if they aren't ported over, having Yoda and Maul the only heroes for the Prequels at launch is disfraceful for a game covering all eras. Anakin is more important than Yoda and have taken a year to be in the game. Hopefully. Vader doesn't count.

    I notice that you didn't mention that having 2 heroes for the ST is just as bad. Just be patient. We are getting them, you don't have to fight about that. As for me, the next heroes I want are Hux and Poe, who are both confirmed to be coming back in IX.

    I respect your point of view, but the sequels got 3 Campaign Missions and 4 heroes. Finn and Phasma are basically launch heroes. They were already made before launch.

    Well, if we had no heroes for the Prequels at launch, I wouldn't have bought the game. But it was claimed it would cover all heroes, so doesn't make sense having no heroes for The Prequels, and also not having Obi Wan and Anakin at launch, which is ironic.

    the saddest part to me is the total lack of guns/star cards since launch. not one new gun or card in the game. it came out mid november so its past 8 months with the same 16 guns and star cards. id have thought they at least had 10 more total cards in that time, maybe a few more guns, even 1 for each class. but absolutely nothing. even the skins are just mostly a joke. They pull crystals at launch, and take months to redo progression in order to get it to a point that they can reactivate crystals, then only put out a minimal amount of skins for purchase. its like they just mailed it in. there should be so many skins available. everything should be for sale. the game has so much money potential i cannot believe DICE has not tapped into it, especially considering the poor launch. And all the modes they released have just been twists on existing modes in the game. Ewok Hunt is somewhat unique but i just dont care for it. then we have Jetpack Cargo which nobody asked for and was an abomination when first released, hero showdown, hero starfighters, extraction. Galactic Assault has been mostly the same since launch, one new map, crait. Strike has gotten basically no updates. extraction i probably my favorite close quarter mode, has only 2 maps. just 2 maps. wow.

    Address all this and you would have more playing and less posting.

    It's a nearly dead service. Even my mates in Discord that played this game nigh-religiously have jumped ship to other games because their favorite game mode, Starfighter Assault, has essentially gotten no significant updates since launch. Other than another Millenium Falcon no one asked for and 2 reskinned regular fighters.

    That's not even taking into account no new weapons, *ONE* new GA map, barely any skins (despite it barely requiring any real development time... they're COSMETICS), and no new heroes since TLJ update. Which is pathetic because they could literally just port over weapons, maps, skins, and heroes from BF2015 (like the Relby for weapons, the Shoretrooper and Tank Trooper for skins, Jyn Erso, Krennic, Dengar, etc.) to tide people over and the interminable wait would not be nearly as noticeable.

    And I have no idea what is taking them so long to unlock emotes with credits/crystals... I mean seriously, what the flipping heck? It's just basically a flip of a line of code.

    Didnt Ben say aomething along the lines of we could have heroes or skins, not both? And that was a while back. Game was managed by a skeleton crew even then

    ......
  • I have to agree 100% with crazyace and nearly everyone else post here.

    Starfighter ***** has been totally neglected. All old ships reused. All star cards re used with different name. Such a waste.

    The lack of guns/star card variations definitely a missed opportunity.

    At the end B1 was fantastic. Although some may disagree. If they probably changed the hero token spawns to be actually random more people would have been a hero. Or they could have adddd a fe w and had multiple hero’s to appease people.

    The speciality Troops that came with emp/krennuc were a great idea.

    So we’re the rounds that forced you into a fighter. Made people also consider the starship side.

    I’m surprised the rebels won any battles where all their turrets/gun inplacements are effectively useless and point in completely other directions to where the enemy come from.
