  • +1 million HUES. Why no love for SA? An excellent mode, that has just been ignored since launch. (i do appreciate SA arcade :) ) Help us criterion, you're our only hope.

    Fortunately it never really had any issues since launch, outside of Hero Ship progression.
    And for me frequent rubber banding, but I believe that is a server issue...
  • Thanks for the bumps guys! Now if we could just get some sort of official response. I'd like to at least know where we stand on this issue. If it is possible, if it's being considered, or if it's not.

    It's a great mode and usually well populated, it's just that there really aren't too many issues other than lack of content. The forums tend to be filled with threads where OP is highlighting a perceived problem. SA doesn't generally have that issue so SA threads tend to be few and far between.

    Worst part is it tends to be 20 threads on the same bug or imbalance.
  • More SA maps please!
    Add more Extraction and SA maps please!

    What the ROADMAP should look like for 2019/2020:
    “Season” 4: Clone Wars Revival
    “Season” 5: Episode IX
    “Season” 6: Rogue One
  • Great game mode. Great looking as well. Definitely could use more maps/ battle scenarios though(where is the death Star trench run?!?). Starfighter blast mode could be fun to on a large scale.
  • Commenting but I feel it's all in vain.
    Didn't they out source SA?
    Pretty sure they wont spend contractors fees on new content and I'm quite convinced the team left at dice have no intention of taking it on.
  • Bespin Air space
    Death Star

    Maps that should be ported for SA

    This is the question I would like to finally see an official answer to. If new maps are possible, then in my opinion Starfighter Assault should be high on the list since it has so few. If it's not even possible, well then at least I'd have my answer, disappointing as that would be.

    @F8RGE
  • why can they not bring the bf1 maps in , there are no in atmosphere maps in bf2 , I miss getting your pursuer to crash into ground
  • YES! DICE please port BF2015's DS Trench Run into SA. Its a stunning and gorgeous map!

    Criterion did work on SA and they are not involved in BF2 anymore. However that doesn't mean DICE couldn't work on new SA maps at some point. They did create all the starfighter maps of the last game too, without Criterion after all. Also, the base work of SA is basically done (flight controls, ship & fighter models, etc. [except for a few ships/fighters like Grievous fighter, TIE-Defender or the Profundity & hammerheads (needed if Scarif will ever come)],

    So it should be easier to create new maps with existing assets or import maps from campaign/Bf2015 than to create everything from scratch.

    I would love to see a very few maps at last. Just a handful. At least one new map for each era would be enough for me.
  • Seriously, is this mode so unpopular that the thread just drops like a rock so no one sees it?

    I don’t know. I love SFA and completely agree it needs more maps. I can lose an evening with the ‘just one more round’ mentality but it really is very same-y and I find myself backing out of certain maps.

    What puzzles me even more though, is the amount of clamour that went on asking for a HvV Starfighter mode but now we have it I manage perhaps 2 matches per night due to empty lobbies.

    I kind of wish they’d made SFA a separate title so it might have more attention.

  • BUMP for visibility.

    I play SA exclusively and enjoy it very much. A few more maps wouldn't go astray, though as everyone is saying. Are there any plans for a mixed-mode? GA and SA together with troops to cover or objectives to destroy? Farfetched, I know but I can dream.

    Personally, I'd like to see Scarif shield gate battle, where the different stages would be to destroy cruisers or the gate itself similar to the way the Kamino maps works.

    There's a lot of content in-game that could work just as well for some filler maps like the mission that the Jenata Security frigate was destroyed. A Fondor-like scenario that includes the Operation: Cinder mission. I'm sure there are more.

    Battle of Coruscant, (X-WIng Alliance missions!!!! *ahem*), Battle of Hoth in SA where the Rebels must protect the escaping ships and attack the Star Destroyers. A mission that pits the Resistance against the Dreadnought, in fact it could be another stage for the D'Qar map to help dress it up. A Starkiller mission would be amazing and it writes itself!

    I guess my point is that SA has really nailed the cinematic flight and battle that Star Wars games have always needed, and I hate to see it die on the vine when it clearly has so much potential. Not in priority against the other modes, but in addition to.

  • Space battle over coruscant.
    Naboo.
    Death star two
    Snoaks ship
  • Best mode in the game left to die on the vine. Dice does not like ship combat, I don't know what they don't get about it being popular.

    Many more maps needed... Hoth, Coruscant fleet battle, Bespin, Death Star. Maybe convoy escort type stuff or blockade running.

    Anything.... just don't make it lame like D'Qar... that map is a boring as the trash floating around in it.
  • Best mode in the game. More maps desperately needed.

    As a few others have also said, I haven't played in a while because of the lack of anything new in the mode even though it's my favorite.
  • Sorry, but I think GA and Strike are due for new maps before SA.
  • Sorry, but I think GA and Strike are due for new maps before SA.

    Why?
  • All the multiplayer rooms need new maps.
  • Sorry, but I think GA and Strike are due for new maps before SA.

    Couldnt disagree more. GA already has a tonme of maps and a huge new map coming. SFA has its last new map in December and was pretty boring at that. Its easily the second most popular and best game mode.

    Dont get me wrong GA is good and fun for a moment or two. But its really no different to any other shooter and it doesnt give you a real star wars experience.

    SFA is the quintessential star wars experience sans lightsabers. (Which lets be honest in allllll star wars games is a glorified baton.)
  • 2 or 3 maps i'd love to see -

    Coruscant: modders have literally just made this so there is no excuse why it can't be in the game.

    Death Star 1/2: I never actually got to do the trench run in BF2015, updating it with a Death Star 2 style labryinth would be cool.


    Starkiller Base: Similar to the Death Star, there's a lot of scope for this as a map with a similar trench run.

    I think you’re wasting your time. In allbut the most populated countries, SA is completely dead.

    Seems to just be US servers and a few European ones at certain times with enough players to start a match. The SA community globally only has 100 or so active players on each day.

    I’m in Australia and can only play SA on US servers on weekends.
  • I hardly play SA but that mode is indeed long overdue for more maps.
  • Spinning in circles is boring!! Low percentage of people play it, will probably never get a new map since we hardly get any maps for popular modes.

    People stopped spinning in circles months ago as far as my experience goes (UK). Maybe there’s a rush of new players but I think the don’t-spin-accelerate learning curve was a quick one. I see it sometimes in hero starfighters tho.

  • Can't say how much I would love to see this...

    THE BATTLE OF JAKKU!

  • We absolutely NEED Battle of Corruscant, Death Star Trench Run and Scarif Shield Gate SA maps! Who agrees?
  • Love all the ideas posted. Still can't believe no Dev has responded to this thread (or actually yes I can). Another update pending and still nothing new for SA. *sigh*

    star fighter assault mode is sweet. I love this mode when I'm in the mood for flying. feels really good like a complete mode just needs more maps. extraction too. GA has only gotten crait. its not like there are that many new maps in any mode since launch. Kessel I think was the only one since crait.
  • They should at least add a Asteroid Belt map on Geonosis as part of the Clone Wars season. If not for Starfighter Assault, something for Hero Starfighters/Starfighter Arcade.

    Original Trilogy & Sequel Trilogy for Instant Action in Battlefront II!

    PC, UK, playing on German servers my experience is I can reliably find SA matches more often than any other mode. I do see similar names, but I’d still say your assertions above are inaccurate.

    At the very least, we cancel each other out! :)

  • Tried getting a match of SA HvV. Won’t get those 10 minuets of waiting around back. Quit and played some HvV GA. Haven’t tried regular SA in a while.
    Doubtful we’ll get anything for either mode as nothing was mentioned in the roadmap.

  • some one made a mod for starfighter arcade which was the battle over coruscant plus the mod made it 25v25 would love more bots in arcade 10 is underwhelming
  • Excellent post OP! Couldn't agree with you more. +1 :)

    SA definitely feels long overdue, while GA is getting a Geonosis map, and other smaller gamemode like HvV and Blast has gotten new and reused maps, such as Bespin, Kessel and Naboo Hangar. SA desperately needs at least just a few more maps for each eras. Many ideas I see here could work well, such as Starkiller Base, Coruscant space battle, Scarif shield gate, Death Star trench run, and so on.

    Only on very rare occasions they respond directly to us in their official forums, but they do so more often in other social websites like Twitter and Reddit (which means outside of their own official website).

    Also, be very careful when continuing tagging the staffs' names. You don't want to risk this awesome thread to be closed. There is a rule about this under the "Don'ts":
    • Call out Community Managers and Officials. Be cool, folks. We know you want to grab our attention, but good thread titles like the example in Dos will help you get our attention much easier.

  • Poor starfighter assault. I guess that's what it gets for being the most solid mode since launch, ignored. I still think it's awesome, immersive and should grow!
  • Not sure if I bumped this before but still doing it. Hardly play SA at all, get wrecked when I do but this mode is just beautiful IMO, deserves more content!
  • some one made a mod for starfighter arcade which was the battle over coruscant plus the mod made it 25v25 would love more bots in arcade 10 is underwhelming

    Yes! The Battle of Coruscant mod are made by Innovative Modding Crew, and they also made another mod for the Battle of Endor as well. :)




    Though I'm not sure for a possibility of this map version of Endor since we technically already have one (after the Death Star was destroyed), but heck I still want it anyway! The Battle of Endor was one of my most favorite Star Wars saga moments ever.

  • I really hope an atmospheric Geonosis map will show up on the roadmap in the next update
    Top favorite heroes and villains missing:
    Ahsoka, Rex, Padme, Cody, Mace
    Bane, Thrawn, Ventress, Jango, Savage

  • Yes please. SFA has only 6 maps, with the 6th, D'qar, added in December 2017 when The Last Jedi season came out. Since then the only opther change was the addition of Lando's Falcon. As such to say things like GA which has had a steady addition of content since launch should get stuff before SFA is laughable.
    Finally to those who say "I don't want to go spinning" to be derogatory about SFA my response is "I don't want to be shot from across the other side of the map by a sniper" which is how I view GA.
