No Match for a Good Blaster

Am i the only one that isnt bothered about going a hero

I see all these posts about hero this, hero that, am i the only one that prefers going troopers constantly,

Yeah if i play GA or SA I'll go a hero the odd time if an objective needs pushed, attacked etc, but 90% of the time i dont use my BP and stay as regular troopers, i dunno maybe feels more of a war like game if you go a regular Joe trooper, maybe the odd aerial or enforcer but hardly them as well

Anyone else like this

    It's good to be a hero.
    The kind mixed with the wicked, the will to fight until the end, I'm not your enemy or friend.

    Still kinda feels like a war to me when Im a hero.

    A commander, like Vader or Luke, are also just troopers. But cool troopers who lead their forces into battle.
    I don't see a problem with people playing heroes as long as they actively participate in battle and don't sit in the backline farming kills.

  • I almost never use heroes unless it's boskk, and thats just because I owned his action figure back in the 80s, even though he actually didn't do a damned thing in the movie. :p
  • Starfighter main. Dont care about heroes. If I play GA I rush to my ship and getting busy should the map allow it.
  • Not really. I am usually at the top of the board hero or not.

  • I rarely use heroes in Galactic assault. Every once in a while, but I prefer troopers. I'm one of those that would prefer a hero-less version of Galactic Assault.

    something like this ^^^
    But I think the hero should pop up like the AT-AT on Endor or Hoth - and there should be only two available at a time for each side - with a timer for those who like to waste hero power by hiding all game. I don't suggest every mode of GA or SA be this way - but the maps with clones could benefit bc of the choke points (like the Throne room)

    I use troopers almost exclusively right now, but only to get kills with there weapons, then I will use heroes when I need to complete their challenges that are easier/only possible in galactic assault).

    I only really use heroes when my team needs the help. I think they are cool but I don’t feel like it is that big a deal. I also don’t like kicking the other team when they are down and feel like troopers are a slightly more fair fight.

    And I assume someone will wonder if I am not good or something. I am usually 1st or 2nd on my team to get to hero credit level so I truly do pass them up a good bit.

    I also almost never pick Palpatine and rarely take Yoda unless we are getting hammered and my team needs the confidence of the health boost.
  • I couldn't care less
    When i get one I just play the objective and clear everyone out
    If I die I die
    Who cares
  • I think that's what is great about this game. There are so many options - planes, heroes, wookies, jetpack shooters, ground bicycles, at-at, etc. And you can always stick with troopers. I love going for heroes mysef, but sometimes you gotta mix it up
  • Nothing Heroic in being a Hero
  • I do like the blaster heroes. Especially the ones who seem like natural military commanders, like Iden and Leia. But other than that, I prefer troopers.

  • I love the troopers! Don't get me wrong I'm excited for new hero's n all, but what do you think about this? Since there so many new clone skins to be added, what if they added the Republic Commandos in? Like so

    That would be really cool, but I'm not even certain if Republic Commando is considered canon anymore.

    I think they're canon -- if I remember right, there was a Republic Commando that showed up somewhere towards the end of the Clone Wars series. But as with several other skin concepts, I have to say that I think the Republic Commando is way too elite and rare to be at all a good idea for a skin. We'd end up with nearly every Clone Wars match having four Bosses, three Scorches, four Sevs, and three Fixers.

    Maybe, if it appears as a skin at all, I could see it being a Legendary Republic Enforcer skin that only becomes available when you reached max rank as well as max class level in all four classes plus Enforcer. And even that seems too easy and common for a Republic Commando, you'd still end up seeing them fairly often.
  • Yep completely agree, only time I play heroes is HvV, other than that I’m always a trooper.

    WHats the point of spending 6k-8k in credits when a officer with se44c can kill you all by himself. game is broken and troop weapons need to deal LESS damage to heroes and heroes should NOT have health recovery. Make it the same as in SWBF2015, I dont get how DICE is ruining this game, my heroes suck but other players heroes seem to be tanking more damage than they should, a prime example is always REY, rey needs nerfing but NOBODY EVEN COMPLAINS ABOUT REY!

    The point of spending the credits is that you get to play as a hero for fun.... it doesn’t mean you earned the right to keep them for the whole match. Troopers should be able to kill heroes/villains... having a hero shouldn’t be like god mode
  • 100% agree with you. I sincerely want the new Conquest gamemode to have no heros or enforcers. This game doesn't reward skill, it's all about who uses the best class or best hero.

    They need more things to spend BP on to make troopers more exciting to play

    Bacta tanks, bonus health, reinforcements, special guns

    There's a hero
    If you look inside your heart
    You don't have to be afraid
    Of what you are
    There's an answer
    If you reach into your soul
    And the sorrow that you know
    Will melt away

    They haven't really made these blasters as modifiable as we thought going all the way back to pre-launch. The mods are a touch better than star cards, but these blasters are now stale IMO. I like my specialist, but I'm starting to really have fun with the speeders, artillery & armor. I paid my dues w/infantry & reinforcements, everything is maxed, maps are too well known, even the time of day is too predictable. Like, where's rainy Endor?

    ...need a surge of some fresh content ya know...
    Let's all remember that Luke's hand didn't clank to the stone when he vanished....Everything organic disappears as a force ghost. The in-organic stays...


  • You can play as heroes?! I thought those were AI.....kidding. I have never played as a hero, only troopers.....and I suck at this game despite playing BF1 and BF2 since the beginning. I only come back cause it's star wars. Everything to me is OP. Even the jawas and ewoks running around are OP compared to my trooper.
  • Even when I play offline I don't play heroes much. In reality we want to be the hero but 99.9% we are cannon fodder so I like the troopers. Even in those rare occasions I have the chance to play one I go for the trooper special troops or vehicle first.

    I love the heroes and hero play, but in GA if I don't fancy picking one and want to stick as a trooper or special unit I am happy to.

  • Sometimes I don't pick heroes too soon , Like a saber hero on Hoth out in the open.

    But when you PTO no matter what class you are , you are my hero.

    PTO all day

    I’ll pick them in GA depending if we need one but it’s more common for me to just keep going as a trooper. I’d also usually skip the hero tokens last game.

  • Both as the mood suits me. Sometimes for a session I focus on one or the other.
  • Iden is one of the only reasons I'm still playing this game so no, I do want to like the aspect of being a regular trooper but GA is so centered around heroes and trooper play is so heavily based around abilites it is sort of a turn off.

    Not as Skins, but as heroes. If they were skins, Everyone would be running around as those guys. Either heroes or reinforcements.

  • Playing as a trooper in the late stages and having to fight 900hp wookiees is no fun, so no. If a hero's available I'll use it.

  • Every time I become a hero I get immediately targeted by everybody shooting nonstop. Playtime on the map 2 minutes. Problem is I'm not in choking points but when I do I get the same result.

    I am pretty much the same (though i didnt play BF1 so i never took the tokens ;)) i tend to dive bomb hero's also, if i can clear and objective or hold a choke point and i lose the hero doing it i still consider it a win.
