    Nope, sent another message last night.

    Dang. We should've made a bunch of smaller threads so they would have to combine it into a mega thread.

    This is a megathread

    So they just merged them and didn't even reply?

    No, this is a single thread. I don't think there has been any merged into it.
    Edit: I put "megathread" in the title about 2 weeks ago and IronSoldier removed it, that's the most attention this thread has got from a dev/mod.

    Ohhhhh.....that's where I might be getting confused. I thought it became a megathread, but you changed the title back to the original
  • But anyway, that's very disappointing to only be getting 'attention' when it's not even relevant to the thread. I mean, c'mon, 18 pages and nothing?

    This sounds like a good idea... I just don't know what kind of other threads should be made... Maybe ones asking for content? Keep in mind that there are two threads asking for more Extraction maps and they were never answered. I think one of them has dev/mod comments, though.

    Actually we did have one...Hero SFA...when Dice Nerfed the Falcons HP drasticly cause of the sake of their new mode...ignoring the balance within normal SFA which should be more Important, specially now when noone plays that Hero SFA anymore.

  • At least SWBF 15 FS delivered new content in a timely manner. While SA, imo, is a far better mode than FS, it does not mean SA is that good that you can nearly neglect the mode for a year. Maybe EA should have budgeted a little more money to Criterion for new maps suggested by the community, SA modes suggested by the community, star fighters suggested by the community and someone who can provide communication to the community instead of budgeting money to DICE for items like JPC and radio silence.

  • The radio silence in of course intentional, but I wonder why? What reason could they possibly have to keep us in the dark and not touch SA?
  • The radio silence in of course intentional, but I wonder why? What reason could they possibly have to keep us in the dark and not touch SA?

    The only reason I see is they have plans for it, but they are either not a priority or there isn't much progress on it. So, they can't openly say that they will not work on it (which wouldn't be exactly true) but they can't say they have plans for it (which again wouldn't exactly be true because they have no new maps ready or planned).
    May your heart be your guiding key.
  • I've thought about changes to SA and here is my list:

    1. Give the Imperial/ Separatists star fighters equal footing with the Rebels/ Resistance. The TIEs are awful, with the TIE Interceptor and FO Interceptor being practically useless. YMMV.

    2. Boost the SA speeds at least 25%. Everything feels far too slow when compared with the movies and other canon sources.

    3. Maul's Scimitar, Boba's Slave One are paper cannons. Maybe more health to start with or better armor or shields.

    4. More maps. I cannot stress this enough! Look at the previous posts and see how many maps and assets are already in-game and would make wonderful SA maps!

    5. If you call something Galactic Assault, where are the space battles? Why can't they run concurrently with the FPS guys? Talk about something that would be amazing, think about the huge battles that could be had.

    6. More maps again. It's important.

    Don't give up on us, please.

    Almost everything you said there was incorrect


    The tie interceptor is classss if youre fast and accurate.

    The f/o interceptor is borderline op.

    Boba Fett is an absolute beaaaast in the right hands. Ill make him.survive the whole match and get 70+ kills while doing it.

    Mauls scimitar is situational on certain maps like kamino he can be almost unkillable. Also ryloth. Other maps i just bring him out to guarentee taking out a pesky poe dameron in one laser barrage.

    For those above saying you cant fly yoda in first person... you deffo can and ive had killstreaks of 50+ in yodas ship in 1st person.

    The only ship i dont fly in 1st person is the falcon and even then i switch depending on what im doing.

    Every other ship in the game its 1st person view all the way.

    Personally i agree with the Speed increase :D Boba indeed beast while Maul is the best OBJ and HeroShip killer in the whole game. He is perfect on Dqar and Endor too, u just need to play with him much much carefully

    Liked for B-Wings, TIE Defenders and new maps
  • Also. This past weekend was heroes unleashed. I doubt the hero and villain ships were as cheap as the characters that fly them.

    I wasn’t able to play. Can anyone confirm?

    Hero discounts are usually GA only. Don't think I've ever seen discounted hero ships.

    Yeah, I would at least like some communication on this. Maybe we get something with the new mode ...

    I really think there is a lot of unused potential for skins, heros and emotes (thinking about pilot communication like "Red 5 reporting" ) that could be used to get revenue out of the game!

    I'd also liked to see maps from GA like Kashyyyk being added to SA only with starfighters. Geonosis might work as well. I think other maps are too small.

    Apparently a thread about adding Death Star trench run to BF2 has more than 3.5k upvotes on reddit. If that's not a sign what people would like to see added in the future. Hope the Devs will recognize this finally.

    A while back, Ben asked if we would prefer to see new maps or ported maps. IIRC, most people suggested it didn't matter, whatever got us new content the fastest. The trench run was the overwhelming favorite for ported maps. I hope they bring it back, no idea have you can have a Star Wars fighter mode without having that classic moment represented.

    All I can give you is that Resistance at least introduced a new starfighter for one of their "main villains" (he hasn't really appeared that much in the show) and maybe some new ones for the Aces pilots. Poe and sometimes the main character use regular Resistance X-wings.

    EDIT: I decided to dig deeper and found that for the First Order: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/First_Order_Navy
    and this for the Resistance:

    It's disappointing for me. I was hoping that there would have been plans in place for Coruscant, as we've got all the heroes that took place in that battle(Anakin and Dooku are on thier way), it's where Dooku fell too. Ah well, I just hope that as they are aware of demand now, we'll maybe seen an announcement in the new year.
  • I like a lot of your ideas for customizing ships and just having more assortment. If I had control of the production of SA from the start, these would have been the maps I would include:
    1. Battle of Naboo - only N1 fighters vs droid fighters around a mothership
    2. Battle of Geonosis - clone fleet vs droid fleet focusing on preventing a mothership from leaving the planet and stopping incoming clone battleships
    3. Battle of Coruscant - this map would just be complete chaos ships top to bottom and as difficult to survive as it seemed, maybe a form of blast
    4. the Kessel Run - light side race through the maze to and from kessel while the empire's goal is to prevent the escape of the specific ship with the stolen goods
    5. Battle of Eadu - combination of cliff mazes and battling between xwings, ywings, and ties
    6. Battle of Scarif - like the first Battlefront, get the ship through the shield and dogfight in between
    7. Battle over Tatooine - only x-wings vs ties between a star destroyer and Leia's ship
    8. First Death Star - like the first Battlefront
    9. Battle over Hoth - defend escaping transports from Tie fighters
    10. Battle at Cloud City - like the first Battlefront
    11. Second Death Star - battle, plus you would need to fly inside it to destroy the Death Star
    12. Battle of Jakku - like the first Battlefront
    13. Battle of Takodanna - a dogfight between the two incoming squads, drive away the enemy's transport
    14. Battle of Starkiller Base - another version of the Death Star battle
    This is already probably too much in a game that also needs plenty of depth in the shooter side of it. But if I had my way I would also consider episodes of Clone Wars and Rebels as the reason for a couple more maps. I could also create more hero ships based on each of these maps. Hopefully we can see more content soon, or maybe they will release Battlefront 3 next Christmas, and all of this will be included, plus you could land your fighter and take part in a shooter battle at each location. Now that would be a Christmas miracle!

    All these battles would be epic! Coruscant, Scarif, and the first Death Star were the three I've thought about before but the rest sound awesome as well. Starfighters definitely need some love soon!

    At least you get something. But this kind of answer is the corporate way to say: "we are under non disclosure agreement about future plans, so we won't share any insight until it's on its way". This doesn't mean we will get something, nor we won't.

    While it actually is an "empty reply", it is a confirmation that they haven't decided to stop supporting the mode yet. They issue clear "no answers" when they decide to stop supporting something (the campaign is the best example).
