Community Transmission: December Update & 2019 Awaits

  • Everything looks great except for the lack of stamina affecting weather a saber hero can attack or not. How many swings does it take to kill another hero? About 4? That's if you hit on every single one? All it takes for a blaster hero to do is roll and dodge maybe 2 swings and they are golden. IMO, this will be a significant nerf to sabers in HVV. Perhaps there will be additional changes to saber combat to balance this out? Higher damage output? I'm hoping the changes to saber combat are not going to be limited to what they talked about.

    This.
  • Note: seems that some players in multiplayer mode are sitting on heros , hidden or cowardly . Suggest a timer which will kick player off of hero after 15 seconds without a kill, and/or an inactivity timer. Also, it seems that you have to luck into a hero as there are never enough to cover 20 people on each team, suggest at least adding the required amount so that each time a player reaches the required 4500 or 6000 point threshold, they have the opinion to upgrade to a hero. I doubt anyone would complain if you cloned a few. 2 Darth Vaders works for me!!!

    INCOMING TRANSMISSION

    utth7r1rt2tw.gif

    This guy is missing his pauldron. The kama is not enough. Please take the pauldron off the specialist and give it to the officer.

    Thank you

    No. This isn't ARC trooper, is a officer.

    Obviously, I never said it was. Wearing a pauldron won't make it an ARC trooper... if you think that you don't understand the meaning and function behind GAR uniforms.

    GAR pauldrons designate rank, which is very important on a battlefield because soldiers must be able to easily identify the chain of command. This is why many officers wore pauldrons with their armour, regardless of their operational area. Pauldrons also offered an additional level of environmental protection to the shoulder and neck area which is why in some theaters non-officers were permitted to wear them (i.e. on Felucia).

    With this said, I think what you were trying to say was if this officer model was given a pauldron it would look very similar to an ARC trooper, on account of the helmet range finder which was almost exclusively used by Republic Special Forces. Note the karma worn by this officer is not an ARC Trooper kama as theirs included rank-coloured edges.

    Perhaps if the range finder was removed people may be less inclined to confuse the officer for an ARC. I don't expect ARC troopers to ever be added to the game so rangefinder or not I don't see any issue, officers could attach a rangefinder to their helmet if they really wanted. ARC troopers were not front-line soldiers and typically withdrew before the real fighting began, so wouldn't be appropriate for them to be included.

    Also worth noting the transmission said more details on trooper customisation will be coming in 2019, so depending on what this customisation may entail, all this could be rendered moot anyway.
    Alone against all these droids....? Hmph... they don't stand a chance.
  • Yes but what if the reticles while hipfiring??!! Lol

    Updates above look great! Hope we can look at improving gunplay as well!

  • EA, your work on battlefront 2 is incredible, but I would like to make a suggestion. Please add private matches like inn battlefront 1. That would be awesome.
  • Only geonosis, death star 2, crait, kamino and tatooine playable after the update?
  • Personally I loved the stamina circle.. I think you should give players the option on which one to choose. The dodge counter is a great addition though. Thanks for the hard work :)
  • Great to see that Officer is getting its long overdue clone armour. Any chance we can also have an Imperial Navy Officer appearance “for free” too? B)

    Please bring back the oldest stamina bar. The new one can't be seen in the combat. My eyes always focus on the middle of the screen. The oldest one was the best, we were all used to it. Reconsider the possible upcoming lighsaber changes. Unable to hit after no stamina will always result in a death and will make blaster heroes (especially those who have stun/shoock ability) even more OP than they are now.

    Being staggered gives an advantage and more tactical possibilities to heroes. Imagine 2 grievouses hitting each other. It will be only about holding RMB and then LMB spam. Your changes will make the combat in HvV only worse.

    Very good update! But I don't understand why the small modes have a spawn timer. It's not necessary... I want to join the fight directly.

    FINALLY got the Squad Spawn to work properly.
    When you select a team mate to spawn on, the timer disengages like it should!
    Now if you could only remove the team mates in vehicles from the selection menu so we don't waste a slot that would be more progress.
    More Clone Wars skins, Yawn... Where are the imperial skins, it's been a year an yet nothing?
    Officer's armor is a nice touch I will admit and the Obi Wan battle armor is another nice addition.
    MM still needs work, the matching algorithm is still painfully too slow.
    How about game mechanics fixes?
    How about equipment balancing on GA Tatooine? Like an A-Wing instead of the X-Wing and a T-47 instead of the X-34?
    Dialing back the player count by 2 or 4 players in GA to reduce the lag during stage 3 of the battles? Save the 40 player maps for the sandbox mode where there will be less activity concentrated in a single spot.
    Nice update, don't get me wrong, it is appreciated, but there is still so much more yet to do.

    No attacking after stamina depleted? Seems a bit drastic but I guess we’ll have to see how it turns out. Overall good work but would love to see some more hero balancing and improvements.

    It is an interesting change. I think it would promote more teamwork in H v V. You can't repeatedly spam another hero until they are dead. It will also limit hero rampages in GA. Kinda like the overheat on a blaster. Limitation promotes more creative gameplay.
    I witnessed it today. When my Palpy used up his juice he was pretty useless until his powers regenerated, so I found myself on the defensive until that happened.
    Before the change, a light sabre wielder was still dangerous even though he had no more force power left, he may have only been vulnerable to blaster fire, now I expect that will change.

  • With this update on PC, after a few rounds of Heroes Vs Villains, the game being at 60FPS stable, down to 4-5FPS and I have to close it from task manager because the game is so slow that I can't exitwith the keyboard or with my control XBOX One. I installed the latest version of Nvidia drivers (v417.35) in my GTX1060 6GB ... What could be the cause of this problem?

    All the upgrades and fixes in the game are perfect but it doesn't allow me to enjoy it as I did before this update today.

    Appreciate any tips to solve my issue, regards.
  • Again nothing new, and nothing fixed for us Srike only players ""go figure again"" !!!
    Also the Heavy users are still suck with a useless Turret, that you can walk right up to and stand, and not get shot while you shoot it!!!
    Pretty apparent you program staff does not play, or pay any attention to the Strike portion of the game, nor use the Heavy class either!!!

    Hey they are listening to the community.
    As long as it’s an easy visual fix or change.

    Well, other aspects of the community have been asking things for longer and things that would actually benefit the game.

    More people have been wanting cargo and I think it is safe to say that more people have been wanting the target system removed from HvV as well. But this which for the most part is a non-issue is what takes priority.

    Creating this does seem to have taken a considerable amount of dev time considering that it isn't ready yet and it is not in its final state yet.

    How hard would it have been to use the blast tickets for HvV?

    How hard would it have been to take Jetpack cargo and make it for regular classes only

    How hard would it have been to remove reinforcements for Blast?

    How hard would it have been to give different stats to all the default blasters?

    All these things most likely would have been easier things to do than to "fix" this non-issue about clone officers.

    Dude, maybe you're joking, but people would lose their minds, pitch a fit, fill their diapers, and caterwaul such that it could be heard on the moon. People lose their minds over Luke being able to fight Darth Maul ("End cross era hero play!" "Why don't you show it in the trailers if it's so great!" "Conspiracy!" "False advertising!")

    It really would be nice to have more heroes to go around, honestly. It wouldn't bother me that much personally, but believe me, a certain subsection of forum folk would complain. Loudly. Mainly the ones whose real agenda is to get DICE to start adding bug eyed Toy Story Star Wars characters. If they cut the cross era play out, that gives them more of a platform to demand Ahsoupa Turbo or whatever her name is, in order to flesh out the hero count.

    All that sounds awesome, super pumped. Please just make sure you get Anakin's hair length right depending on what skins you're including for him. Like if you're bringing his Season 1 Clone Wars armored look in, then have his hair be like that, rather than all the skins having his Revenge of the Sith Hair. But if you're giving him his long hair then do his caped and Armored Outer Rim Sieges look from the 2003 Clone Wars. Don't want another repeat of the 327th Skin (where its inaccurate).

    I'd love to have some extra locations within the map boundaries for Duels as another commenter on here stated. 1 v 1 would be cool. Anakin vs Asajj on Yavin IV, fighting in the reactor room on theed where Maul lost his other half. Dooku's hanger on Geonosis. Utapau, Kamino. The Emperor's throne room. The Senate. Palpatines office etc. so many possible locations...

    But all in all, very good year, the team has done a fantastic job. A rough start but you guys have really engaged with the community so we all feel a part of helping to improve this game. Thanks again and enjoy your well deserved break over the holidays :smile:

    Oh god.....I forgot how bad he looked in rebels. Also clone wars 2003 hair lengths are not canon since the show isn’t canon. Or maybe I’m missing something?

  • Congratulation are in order!!!!! Hurray we have Geonosis!

    Too bad it is now pointless in myself trying to play it! Since the October update this game has chronic lag and latency 100% of the time. In fact it plays like there are no European servers. No amount of port forwarding ,wired console(Ps4) or going through every tweak to the router can sort this out. WE know why ! Because either there are no longer any European servers or yet one more bug(amongst the hundreds) sees European players being dumped on very distant servers. I am being dumped by default on very laggy US servers. Which means, basic movement cuts out, weapons stutter, head shots don't count, players are micro teleporting around. THIS IS CONSTANT!!!! I end up quitting every attempted gaming session out of frustration.

    Right now this game is only fit for the waste bin. And after reporting this problem back in October and having seen nothing done about it. This is my parting shot as I throw this terrible excuse for an online multi player game in the bin. Where it belongs.

    THIS IS TESTIMONY TO THE MOST INCOMPETENT ***** IN THE GAMING INDUSTRY - THAT IS EA/DICE.

    But I am not simply leaving it there. I have submitted a twelve page letter fully detailing this to Sony PlayStation, issued by a legal representative. So it cannot be simply ignored. I am willing to show them footage as the the terrible performance of this so called Premium game in order for them to start to prevent this sort of rubbish being presented on their console. It is well past time that pressure is being brought upon EA/Dice in the form of sanctions in order to stamp out the levels of incompetence and blatant rip off that we currently are seeing.

    I'm sick of seeing this game not be delivered properly , be it by poor or non existent servers or bugs all over the place.

    Never again will I like a growing number waste a penny on anything EA /Dice produce in the future. They are now dead to me.

    Just one thing. Since the beginning of this game, there are bugs on the heavy's weapon sight, reticle. Specially on weapon using a zoom mod. Often reticle and zoom disappear. Grenade launcher amplify the problem. Could you fix this please ? The wait become long.

  • I would really like both a space and ground battle for the Siege of Coruscant. Space battle would be awesome if it was multiple Venator vs 1 Providence and a bunch of Munificent frigates
  • Great job with Geonosis guys. Now... for the lightsaber combat, the stamina system is the worse thing you ever created for this game, please remove. Yes, lightsaber users shoud be able to deflect and attack indefinitely and they shoud be able to break the defense of others lightsaber users with charged attacks or heavy attacks or anything like that, and yes, a blaster hero should be in disadvantage against a lightsaber hero or a force user hero.
  • @F8RGE please fix the bug that prevents a specialist with a sniper rifle with anti armor attachment to do damage on a AT-TE.
    thank you
  • what about fixing the post-game stats not working more than half the time?

    So if you can no longer swing when you have no stamina (I didn't look at my circle for like the first 6 months, so I was probably just whipping them with a wet noodle) shouldn't that mean that you can no longer block when you run out, as well? In practice it may be awful, I haven't thought it through. :D

    Think you guys at EA could make it where we can use our heroes abilities while in the air? I’d love to be able to jump and force push in the air...

    You already can. :) It's easy to miss, but you can push in the air as Luke, pull and freeze as Kylo, choke as Maul..... It doesn't work for Yoda or Kenobi, and I haven't tried mind trick with Rey. I'm almost certain you can't jump choke with Vader.

    There may be an element of timing to it, but you can do it. Maybe try practicing in arcade.

    You cant jump and choke with maul unless they added it recently :)

  • Huge Geonosis Issue - Has anyone noticed that as a separatist shooting the AT-TEs, you only get points for 10% of the hits you land? I can hit an AT-TE with a full round of ion shots (Trooper, Officer, Specialist, no matter) and only get 24 points. I won't even play Geonosis anymore because it is so frustrating. It hasn't always been this way, just since the latest update.

    Please fix the issue, otherwise Geonosis is a disappointing failure.
