Just wanted to say something positive!

I know with any update that comes out we’re going to get a lot of negativity. I just wanted to say some good things about the update. I actually like it better than I thought I would. I played a good three hours today and I didn’t see any big bugs or issues that we weren’t waned about. (Meaning the spawn on vehicles bug) But I can appreciate that the still launched because they promised his at this time. So yes it had a big bug, but we had the communication there before launch. IMO there’s a point to Dice. Second, I’m really loving these skins. The assault looks a bit different for the 91st but other than that I think these skins are amazing, and in game it’s really cool to see the opposing clones in the different armors. I’m really looking forward to the next few months for updates. We have 4 MAJOR updates coming up soon and we should be focused on that with excitement. A new game mode, planet, and 4 new heroes as well as new vehicles for geonosis. It’s a good time to be in battlefront if you ask me.

Please try to keep your comments here upbeat, this thread isn’t meant to degrade or bring down optimism about this game. Please voice negative opinions in a What’s wrong with this game thread. Much appreciated!

    I'll take a job at DICE in which i have no idea on programming and how creating a game works, i can simply give them feedback and tell them whats good and what isn't, ill be honest, i'll tell them the truth instead of smudging my way into liking everything thats being done like SWHQ does, if DICE didn't invite them out and ask for their opinions we would have a better game.

    But you see the whole point of this thread was to generate some positive feedback. You have jus let the same right I do to post and create threads. If you want to create a thread for what you believe to be the games short comings, absolutely go for it. I just would ask that you do be respectful and not gun down people for being optimistic and to keep the posts in correlating and appropriate threads :smiley:

    Don't take it personal chief, I'm with you I think the update has been phenomenal. But he's just giving his opinion, which whether positive or negative is completely valid and leads to more constructive debate. It's all good whichever view you take

  • @ArcTrooperBen you have every right to start a thread talking about the positives of the game but IMO it's a lost cause trying to squash any negative comments that people may have. In the many complaint threads on here people do chip in with positives and it's all part of the discussion; don't recall a single negative thread saying at the outset don't post positive stuff!

    Also for most people there is good and bad and for me personally it feels pretty awkward just telling one half of the story (this is true on negative threads as well).

    Anyway, for what it is worth I have enjoyed playing this game, mostly, and the number of hours I have logged on it means it's been good value for me. I want to say "but..." but I'll leave it there... :-)

    I do recognize it’s hard and it was probably silly of me to say that, It’s just rather disappointing to my to me to see the sheer volume of negativity about all the flaws in the game and it so drastically outweighs people talking about good things. Especially around updates it seems like no one will allow positive things to be said without trying to belittle the “optimistic” fan who recognizes the difficulties of game design and making comparisons to all sorts of iconic games of the past. I reall appreciate your comments and support whilst recognizing your point made about negativity. Thank you!
  • Positive
    My PS4 Didn't blowup
    I like the squad system and i think it's great
    I don't like the idea Heros and enforcers doing it
    They should have troops only and then that solves the on top of building spawn and the endless wookiees spawning in objectives

    You have to keep in mind that the positives have always been there (graphics, music, etc.) and people are playing the game and complaining about it because they love it and like playing it. However, when you play and experience a few issues once after another (even if they might be minor independently) it starts to weight you down. It doesn't help seeing how some bugs have been in the game for a long time, and even if they have been acknowledged, they don't seem to be a priority. That is where the main negativity comes from.

    I mean, I have defended the game a few times or pointed errors/inaccuracies when people use hyperbole about the issues. This is the only multiplayer game I have played regularly for more than a month (I haven't even deleted it from my HDD since I bought it). But, there have been a few days when I left the game more frustrated than happy due to bugs or exploits. So, sometimes it's really hard to not be negative.

    May your heart be your guiding key.

    Here is the thing... we have bazillion posts of negative. If we get someone asking to keep it positive for just one out of a million threads, would it be so hard to just roll with it and concentrate on the positive for a moment?

    You started with negative and ultimately gave some good positive feedback. But perhaps for this thread in particular it would have been better to leave the negative stuff for another thread. Nobody is limiting your thoughts, it would just be appropriate to put them in the right spots and personally I feel like you at least partially high jacked the OPs thread.

    I think there is a lot to be happy about in this update. I sympathize with folks who are being affected by bugs but not everyone is experiencing issues. I am doing quite well so far.

    Last point... when the overwhelming amount of posts are about bugs and stuff it really makes it look like everyone is getting those issues. That can’t be true because I have been playing consistently since launch and had very few problems. Maybe the issues are server specific or something more specific to each individual player. But nobody offers enough details to figure out what is going on. It would be great if people would post with the mentality that they can only speak for themselves and the post is intended to bring improvement to the game and community.

    Sorry for the highjack OP! I appreciate you giving it a shot at bringing some light to the darkness.

    I like the update okay, but I’m not so sure about the new spawning system on certain maps/modes. It’s good on GA but not on Strike.
    Also choke points have increased but that’s a positive thing if you like that I guess- definitely prolongs certain firefights.

    Also I have noticed a ton of glitches since the new update (XB1) but I’ll keep it positive and say that’s good if you like weird glitches to keep you on your feet or are a developer who job it is to fix these and this keeps you employed- lol. /positive

    I saw a post about the update breathing new life into strike. Maybe find that thread and ask the OP if they noticed the same glitch you noticed since they obviously play strike.

    Hope it is a rare glitch for you. No problems on my end in GA PS4 East Coast US. Will see if I can test Strike in the next day or two.

    Guys I really want to give you the opportunity to share your feedback in here but you need to keep things on topic. This isn't a discussion for negative critiques or to talk about DICE and Gamechangers. The OP created this thread to be a space specifically for positive feedback, respect that and be considerate of others looking to have this space for that conversation.

    This doesn't mean you can't give negative feedback. I will echo EA_Cian here, there are numerous threads out there for members that would like to give negative critiques from the update in a constructive manner. Use the search function or check out the discussion boards to find them.

    TLDR: Please don't derail, respect the thread topic and keep discussions to the spaces that have been created for having those conversations.

    Edit to add: Cleaning up thread and removing some posts for derailing. I will leave in others as taking them out will make people look like their having conversations with themselves ^^;

  • Back on topic...

    I love it that we added an element that can really change gameplay strategy. I will enjoy seeing the adjustments and counters to the adjustments with the new system.

    Strategizing is fun for me even if nothing else has changed (maps, guns, etc).

    This will satisfy that part of my brain till we get Grievous.

    Imma be honest the people like you are the problem on this forum. If it’s that big of a deal go try and get a job at dice. Take the negativity where it’s invited please.

    I've been in meetings where Game Changers or people we've invited to the studio have said "I don't like this" or "you should do this, the community will like it".

    Nobody involved with Star Wars is allowed to only say positive stuff, if that's the case then they don't work with us. Game Changers are only one part of the process as well. We look at what is happening across the wider community on a daily basis.

    Any more room?

    Love the squad update. More action, kore fun, and it feels more like a team because there are people running WITH you, your not alone. It's amazing. I love it. Don't change(actually, make heroes spawn like a tank).

  • In my limited time playing GA since the update I've noticed my number of deaths per match has gone down due to being able to watch what my squad mate is doing for a few seconds and get an idea of what's going on near the objective before spawning in as opposed to having to rush back to the action and immediately getting flanked.

    With a little more time to get used to it and a few tweaks regarding where heroes can spawn in, I'll be happy with the new system.

    I’m not so sure about that. But I didn’t see you match, and that’s entirely your opinion :smile: I was playing starkilller base earlier and the teams were very even. The squad system actually felt like it brought the balance to even more of a knifes edge. Where we had to be strategic on both sides to get our reinforcements. It was dynamic and fun.

    I can. I really like the new system. I no longer have to run aa mile to get to an objective. The only criticism I have for the thing is that my teammfatestry to spawn next to me whilst I am in a vehicle and kill me.

    Man, my typos get worse when I am sick. Sorry y'all.

  • I really love that even in the face of all the work the devs have on their hands they took the time to revive the npc wildlife it's a critical part to the immersion of the game.
    Makes me feel warm and fuzzy. Well done :smile:
  • Squad system makes it feel like you are with people, not alone. Nice!

    I agree. Particularly since the squad members carry forward from game to game. You start to become familiar with who you are with (even randoms).

    Granted, you may not appreciate everyone on your squad but you will likely be cool with at least one or two of them.

    That is ridiculous. This forum is easily over 90% negative. Only thing that truly gets silenced is bad language and personal attacks. The forum rules are fair on this matter.

    Positive threads are a refreshing change from the norm. Let em be.

    Had a really nice squad the other day. 1 of each class. Officer was very good and helpful, the ideal officer, providing shields and buffs for in-need players but also shooting some. Aggressive specialist, sniping in Naboo phase 2 centre hall. We complimented each other quite well.

  • I love the smell of positivity in the morning. The squad system is legit, can't wait to play it with some friends. I stand by the DEVS and their trying to better the game for us all.
  • They fixed the matchmaking so I can find a game now :) once I can get online that is! Love the game though.
  • Jus found out how much I love the CR-2. Nostaligic, as the sound reminds me of the noises I made when I was youger and playing with plastic army men...
