Speeder collision detection WAY off

Was there a stated change to the speeder collision detection? I just ran straight over literally dozens of players with an X-34 on tatooine, and it only detected about 5-10% of the collisions.

  • Got to go full speed
  • You're better off shooting than trying to roadkill now unless you are already going at high speed.

    No more lulzy 20 killstreak LIUV runs in the first 2 minutes of Starkiller Base anymore, (un)fortunately

  • Not to mention that you run into invisible walls (Endor 2nd phase) and stutter around like you were about to disconnect. I really like to play with vehicles so I hope they would fix that.

    I was starting to wonder what happened to my Ugly Death Machine the LIUV! I used to rank up some serious kills with it, but now its a useless hunk of junk that just wastes your time by using it. I even got one for Christmas (the toy) because I always thought it was fun as can be to drive. Now I look at it and want to cry. Thank god I can still do damage with vehicles in other games on my XBone. I guess there will be even less players to cobble-together for a full Galactic Assault round now that we have turned BFII into "Oh, don't bump into that guy" land. Reminds me of the NFL rule changes for how you can hit a Quarterback.

    It is still somewhat good if there are not many savvy players during the round (heavy troopers with ion torpedoes and specialists with ion shot) due to LIUV blaster fire, but it is no where as great as it use to be.

    By the end of phase 1 I had greater than 20 kills and a hero. It really helped against a good team or when I played with inexperienced players (you know right away when you are on team of noobies).

    preach...preach...
    cause everything you read on the internet is true...
  • Yup it's become much harder to speeder troll as I like to call it. Boy did I have some fun on second stage mos eisley in Lukes landspeeder. Entire teams would meet space Jesus under my repulsors. That one spawn location was a complete killzone
