  • If you don't like it play strike, or better, don't play the game. It's only two days.

    strike sucks and i shouldnt have to not play the game to avoid a badly thought out "event". they should have made it a separate mode.

    also: somone who has THAT version of yoda as their avatar, as well as a quote from the PT, you goona sit there and say you like ST better? youre ridiculous man

    I’ve just taken the advice of others here and not played the game since I tried Geonosis after not playing for a month before that. Just checking here now to see if trooper modes will get any love in the future and a couple off topic threads.

    Yep. The Yoda fight against Palpatine is probably my favorite scene in all of SW. The PT has, without a doubt, the best lightsaber fighting of any trilogy, and has some pretty memorable scenes. However, that doesn't change the fact that it has awful dialogue, a messy plot, poor character development, and bad acting.
  • I feel like the event in general just made matches that would have been "one-sided" into total steamrolls.

    The problem is that character develepment and fighting scenes go together. And that's why, while somewhat pretty, prequel fights convey no emotion. If you don't care about the characters, you don't care about the fight. It doesn't matter who wins or loses and you won't find yourself rooting for anyone. Overly choreographed fights also doesn't help.

    Jetcamp cargo was a better mode tbh. You got the very rare round where neither team employed troll tactics, that almost reminded you of the glory of the 2015 version of the mode.

    HU is just turbo cancer every round by design.

    Only reason its popular is the bottom feeders can get heroes in a mode outside of HvV (where they get dunked on immediately) and kill like 2 troopers before death by spam.

    Meh. I like GA better when I have my choice of heroes throughout the match since I’m usually towards the top. Now anyone who can scrape up 1100 pts gets a hero and everyone runs around mindlessly in lightsaber battles. It’s still entertaining though. Just different
  • Heroes Unleashed is amazing. It's a blast getting behind a wall of heroes and charging into battle. The only thing I don't like about it is that it doesn't happen every weekend.

    Fair enough. Currently I'm just enjoying GA by running around and punching people out as Specialist. It's like HvV but I never run out of stamina! :p

    Last night, doing that, I ended up with enough points to get a couple heroes, so I picked Finn (who I've never used) and spent the rest of the match running around "Big Dealing" the biggest groups I could find. Once I get better at actually shooting people, I may feel the same way.

    I have all this skill I picked up in HvV that I can never use, because up until the last couple days, nearly every single time I get a hero, the game ends 45 seconds later. which is why HU has appealed to me in the past.

  • I despised HU at first, but now I look forward to it the most. It's chaotic and challenging, and funny seeing people who have no idea how to play with heroes.

  • To be honest I like it a lot. I don't have any problems playing with heroes on regular days and I top the scoreboard pretty often. I like it because of how chaotic it is. Usually all of my matches while HU is live run up to the last phase, something quite rare. I have all of my heroes on level 40 so I don't even care about that, I just choose what's available. As a one-weekend-per-month event I find it quite enjoyable, the only thing I would prefer is that whenever this even is live, GA matches go from 40 to at least 50 players.

    I wish I could play Strike. The game mode is dead on my side on the internet. So I play HvV, blast or extraction.

  • Good luck getting past the first phase of Geonisis this weekend...hard enough to ever get to that map and it turns into a big dumb hero battle instantly. With no overtime those 100 tickets are eaten up in record timing with over 5 heroes defending the droids.
  • I hate this hero spam event. Every match turns into a big hero battle almost instantly for the entire match. Killing them doesn’t even matter really, only seconds later they are back at the objective again because of how cheap they are. The longer you play and get steamrolled over and over by heroes as regular infantry it becomes less fun. Having a bunch of heroes running around constantly ruins it.


    That’s great that some people enjoy it, good for them. Make a temporary separate mode/playlist so people who want to play herofront can do so and leave regular GA alone. It’s not that hard DICE and it would make everyone happy. There’s really no reason to force everyone into it if they want to play the main mode in the game.

    Could just play HvV but oh, they ruined that too when making this game by the target system which often leads to chasing cowardly Maul’s and Luke’s around the map.

    Oh, I'll be enjoying that too lol. Both are better alternatives to the regular GA.

    Nah, I like it because it is like a better HvV overall.

    Don't even start with that whole "battlefront is all about heroes" nonsense.

    There's no shortage of people telling others to play something else.

    Played one match, still a crap mode. Got a half dozen cocktails in me... kept my Lando the entire match. Along the way I killed 2 Vader’s, a Boba, a Kylo and an Iden.

    Trash mode, I’m terrible with heroes and had no trouble handling it.

    Bring on trooper only GA, hero blast and era locked weekends.

    its stupid honestly me and most of my friends are all good at this game and we all like it its just a fun mode people need to stop with the nonsense dont matter if your good or bad some will like the mode some wont.

    again with this ''it is just 2 days''. No is not only 2 days, it is already the third or the forth time that they put this event without the possibility to chose if play it or not. From my perspective and from the perspective of the all players that don't like it they have ruined the game for 4 weekends! And a lot of players can play only in weekend!
    And hey, the next unlimited power event it is just another heroes unleashed!

    It rewards passive play. Aggressive play results in losing your hero to a starfighter strafe or AT-ST through no fault of yours.

    The few times I played it I found that Iden sniping at heroes/fighters or Leia alt fire spam from the back was a surefire way to top the board. The turnips will zerg and die on the objective so you don't have to, whereas in normal 2 hero GA, if you don't push the objective, you hurt your team very badly and end up losing the game long before you can rack up a high score or killstreak.

    I imgagine it's okay mode for pubstackers too, but I don't know how people find 2 min steamrolls fun, anyway.

    Trooper only GA weekend sounds like a terrible idea. I hope we have a poll to see if the majority (at least in this forum) would like this, I highly doubt it.

    As in the movies so in the game, storm/clone/droid troopers are cannon fodder. In other words a glorified AI (at times not even that)

    Even a blast door is trouble for them.

    You must be new here....
  • As an executor/starfighters main, I "dare" say I don't really like this mode.

    That would be much better with a discount on the executors/jet packs troopers as well. Think I'd play it with that kind of improvement. For now, it's Specialist Full Stinger or HvV only.

    It's good people like it. There is reasons and I understand them. I've clearly nothing against the fact to make it a more recurrent event, or a new game mode if the player base allows it (to not split it too much). But actually forcing me to play it feels kind'a disgusting. Make a new queue for it I don't know...

    Because I like to play as Troopers! Because playing as Troopers was originally the whole point of this game series: to get away from the Force and lightsabers and to experience the iconic battles of Star Wars through the eyes of a common soldier, with only a blaster and a handful of thermal detonators to aid you.

    I have never touched a Hero in either Battlefront game. I don't want to. I've never wanted to. For me, the Trooper is all I need! I'm an infantry grunt, through and through.

  • It can be a fun event unless you have a dog crap team who just let the other team take the objectives.

    I mean being swept over in GA is annoying enough normally. But when theres 9 heroes on a decent team and youre stuck with **** who dont have thumbs... it is arduous.

    So id say unless you squad up with good players... stay away until the event is over because your team of **** will let you down guarenteed.

    Just had a match on kamino and literally the team just let the other guys take the objectives. Barely fought back at all.

    I can only imagine cause they play cautiously to not lose their hero.

    I already think thats bad play. And before any of you bossk players creep out of the woodwork to say im not **** i get 100+ kills with bossk... yeah but then your team loses because to get that killstreak you sat outside the objective and got kills with stupid grenade launchers and then when you get to half health... comlletely run off to regain full health.

    Heroes are meant to turn the tide of battle not be a hammy way of you stroking your digital ego.
