Who here thinks Ben Walke is this best?

I just wanted to show appreciation for the man who supports the Battlefront community so much and is actually passionate about the game....

  • Who???
    My youtube channel Star Wars Battlefront, Battlefield 4 etc gameplay https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCF4zDYJfLp_rvcKzALVEXHA?view_as=subscriber
  • Oh I don't think it bro, I know it. There is no comparison between the awful manager we had before and Ben. Ben does a great job, actually interacts with the community and seems to have fun doing it.

    Exactly. I'm sure he's an okay guy. Following orders isn't always an acceptable excuse. Sometimes you have to stand up for what is right no matter what the consequences may be.
  • Nobody remembers leave us in the dark sledgehammer? Believe what you want but Ben tries and I'm grateful for that.

    Community Transmission, Focused Feedback, roadmap, he on twitter constant. These are welcome additions from absolute radio silence before. communication has improved but was just at such a rock bottom that even being bad its still way better than it was. he can only can do so much with the information he's being provided. polishing a terd.
  • Go read the Cargo thread. So much support from Ben. It's endearing.

  • yeah im in the cargo thread a lot. all for bringing it back. along with the extraction maps thread. and EOR matchmaking thread. but what can be said when DICE wont give any info. all he can say is were looking into it. DICE wont commit .

    They are ignoring us. Ben certainly hasn't done anything to help.

  • He's certainly an improvement over that Camaro salesman we had before.
  • He's doing the best he can in a bad situation. someone has to be the messenger. but when the source is providing little to no information, the messenger will take the heat.
  • He has a few flaws (like how he handled the Droideka situation), but overall, he is a great community manager and one of the main reasons the Battlefront community has gotten significantly better since launch. Ben knows that communication is key.

    I am with you in claiming that we are being ignored on several fronts (like SA or Extraction), but it is probably somebody else's fault. They want to prioritize some stuff taking into account the resources they have, even if I don't agree with them. But, Ben is still way ahead of the old CM we had. He has his flaws, but at least he seems to be trying to engage with the community and report feedback back to his superiors.
    May your heart be your guiding key.
