—Throwback Season Concept—
hbr44h0x6tfz.jpegla70t2a3qrjf.jpeg

Let us step back for a moment, back to the time of bacta bombs and jump cannons... berserkers and ee-4’s.

To a time when the Kansas City Royals were fresh off their first World Series victory in 30 years. When we were getting our boots muddy for the first time The Forest Moon of Endor and enjoying the cracking sound of the cycler rifle.

We’ve taken a little time to compile some of the fonder moments of EA Battlefront ‘15 and put together a nice season package. The intent here is to revive some of the great things BF’15 had to offer and see what it would be like as a season addition to this game. The focus is to expand and compliment the (hopefully fun and successful) new Conquest/hybrid mode.


—HEROES—
Let’s dive right in with the return of comic relief duo of Nien Nunb and Dengar. Both were hilarious and downright fun to play with in the previous game. We’re happy to include them here with concepts courtesy of @Starwarsfanboosk_com

NIEN NUNB
ax4qkogpty0g.jpeg

Weapon: DH-17

Health: 600/Regen threshold: 200

ABILITY (R1/RB) / 15s CD /⦗Sullustan Engineering⦘- Nien places a medical droid that will not only heal nearby allies and give them a slight overheal, but will also scan every 7 seconds to uncover enemies (can heal the lost thresholder of friendly heroes aswell)

ABILITY (L1/LB) / 10s / 2 charges/⦗Trap⦘- He can drop 2 Proxy Bombs and it's explosion only hurts you or your teammates when an enemy blows it up with their blaster fire. A small number indicator shows you how many active Bombs you currently have. differently from Han's det charge, this cannot be activated manually, the mines will deal an ammount of 150 damage

ABILITY (L1+RB/LB+RB) / 3s CD / ⦗Arms dealer⦘- Nien switches to his personal pulse cannon, this version does not require to charge and it goes to cooldown after 1 shot, 180 for a body hit, 270 for a headshot.

DENGAR
4jzm1h4zz4qz.jpeg
Weapon: DLT-19

Health: 700/Regen threshold: 250

Melee = Vibroknife (deals the same ammount of dama as boba's melee)

ABILITY (R1+L1/RB+LB) / 16s CD /⦗Maxiumum FirePower⦘ - Dengar's DLT-19 gains the cooling cell effect, increased fire rate and increased damage for 8 seconds.

ABILITY (R1/RB) / 14s CD / Job satisfaction - Dengar loves being in the middle of a figth, while this ability is active, Dengar receives 55% Damage reduction and 25 health back on a kill.

ABILITY (L1/LB) / 12s CD /⦗Hurricane Strike⦘ - Dengar rushes toward his opponents with blinding speed and hits every opponent in the way while also knocking them down dealing 130 damage, when you press the ability button again he swings his weapon foward dealing 200 damage.


—MAPS—
For maps, we have an iconic Kuattro on hand. Relive old memories while exploring remastered versions of these fan favorites. Watch for yourself as old maps become new with the new Conquest mode well established at this time.

SULLUST- Sorosuub Centroplex

BESPIN- Cloud City

    We also need the Sullust AT-ST training map and Endor Speeder training mission map.

    Both would be great for CQ and GA.

    Good times.

    Almost as good as the ones who pop their bubble, start to laugh emote and met my scatter gun, followed by me laugh emoting.

    I’d love CQ to be a success, be expanded upon like this season.... and get Cargo back.

    Set.

    I had a few things I wanted to add as I was putting it together here. One was the shock trooper and the other was the Speeder Bike mission. Doh!

    Oh man, having all those maps back would be glorious.

    A BF15 season would be awesome for the long time fans of EA battlefront.

    The only things I disagree with is that you didn't put enough guns, maps & the rest of the other heroes! I want ALL the content back into BF2.

    Another thing that I'm appalled by when it comes to BF2's game design is that they limit customization to just certain classes.
    I am not a fan of cutting off content like that, and to see you supporting that by just limiting the Sullustan, Magma trooper & Shock trooper to only 1 or 2 playable classes deeply saddens me.

    But overall, great thread.
    I hope this game one day adds all of our favorite content from the last game & makes this game even better than it could be.

    Yeah we could have done a few more weapons, but then we would have had to use hero blasters to keep the balance. Jyn and Krennic are in the other concept....so I guess my man Greedo gets the shaft on the fantaseasons. Haha

    Greedo was my #1 used villain in the last game. Would love for him to return, but Dengar brings more variation. Prefect world: both Bounty Hunters return.

    Nice nice
    This is actually plausible if they aren't going to port over all the maps from 2015, these are probably the most popular large maps.

    If CQ/new large mode is a success, I’d love to see BF1 maps brought in for it.

    Why only assault for Sullustan...Why not more
    options? This was large mode focused so none of the cool small maps were included.

    Same, and they'd be nice to see in GA as well with unique objectives instead of 'activate the uplink' and 'shoot the walker'. Having to rig the turbolasers to explode on SoroSuub would be great - maybe even having to place mines at the base of one of the elevated ones, and when it explodes it falls across part of the map creating a new obstacle. That'd be great, I would love to see some more dynamic maps and objective activation scenarios.

    If only, I'd love a throwback season, but ONLY after all the clone wars content has dropped...the. after this throwback season they do ANOTHER clone wars season (TV show)
  • It makes you realize some of the wonderful features bf2015 had and ultimately shows how lacking 2017 is.

    Scatter gun that could pass through shields as it wasn’t an energy weapon. Great.

    They should port nearly all maps across and heroes. Krennic was a great and totally different hero with the poisonous r2 unit. Wasn’t a huge fan of junior but the fact she had a 3 in 1 weapon was also great..


    The more I think of it 2017 is just a lazy product. Pretty sure I said that in beta as well.

    It’s prettier I’ll give it that, but all other things are better in 2015. Especially heroes.

    I’d prefer Rogue One over anything else after this clone wars season. But carrying maps and other content from the first game seems like a better bet at this point... still seems highly unlikely, just a little less. Lol

    Battlefront 2015. Filled to the brim with content. 2 years into BFII and barely anything.

    Everytime I play this crap, I get bored. Theres no new weapons to work towards and they can give all these "roadmaps" and keep telling us how "passionate" they are about Star Wars, when the game proves otherwise.
