we need a large-scale infantry mode

Honestly, at this point, I don't care if it's a version of GA with fewer heroes or no heroes, or if it's a new mode entirely, or if it's just Turning Point from the 2015 game brought back. This game desperately needs a mode that happens on large maps with lots of infantry, where the focus is not on Heroes Heroes Heroes like with everything else in this game. i

It should either be no heroes, or only one per side at a time -- and very few Enforcers and Aerials as well, maybe two per side. Highly objective oriented. I'd play that all day long.

  • Some kind of ‘Mega Blast’ set in a handful of appropriate GA maps would be good.

    They could even tie it to monthly faction events, i.e. the game lasts x days, you choose your faction and the side with the most kills is rewarded.

    It’s a no brainer.
  • I'd absolutely love a large scale objective-oriented infantry mode like Turning Point. That mode was awesome! We desperately need a mode like this or an entirely new mode centered around what made Battlefront famous in the first place: the Trooper.

    Like you said, we have Galactic Assault, but it's just over-saturated with Heroes, making it a nightmare for the infantry players in the final phases. This game really needs more infantry content, like weapons, skins (for factions besides the Galactic Republic), and Star Cards.

    infantry supremacy please and thanks

    An update including that and several trooper skins as well as blasters, and, don't want to be too ambitious but maybe even some new class abilities, would be very welcome. Not a hero player in the first place and it's annoying how trooper players don't have a mode with a truly level playing field. Not to mention it's hard to get excited for a single hero per month considering all of the frustration of racing to get them in HvV/GA, and hoping to be on the correct team in the first place.

    With infantry content like blasters, skins, and abilities you don't need to deal with any of that. It is universally available content.
    Here come the hero players

    Totally agree. I don't care for Heroes, either. I have no desire to play as them. An update like that would be beyond amazing!
  • I would like to see a mode like this, need to level up some of my Infantry classes without playing blast, and a objective mode like that would be awesome.

    That Specialist rework was disappointing.

  • Add me to the list and I love heroes, just love infantry more. To many crutches added in this game so casuals can compete imo. How about this, a 20v20 all heroes and a 20v20 all infantry, doesn’t get more balanced than that right. But seriously this is nothing more than wishful thinking or a conversation piece imo, only way we get this is on bf3 imo. Also consider this is predominantly a heroes forum.

    That would be better than what they've got currently, for sure! I'd still prefer a large-scale mode that is objective oriented, though...

    Would love a large trooper only mode. Turning point would work. More Extraction maps without enforcers would work too.

    I really miss the BF2015 Outer Rim DLC. The maps were large, the heroes were only a major problem in the hands of certain players, the objectives were fun, and it had amazing replayability due to it's rotation of game modes and maps. Cargo and Droid Run were fun side trooper modes. HvV was a ton of fun. Extraction was amazing.

    Glad to have you aboard! I like heroes too, but as you said, I like troopers more. I'm not against Heroes, I'm just against the way they dominate this game, and the way the devs seem to obsess over them. Pretty early on it started to feel like just a Star Wars version of OverWatch, where you can also play some cruddy underdeveloped Trooper fodder while you wait to play a hero.

    That would be better than what we've got, but I'd still prefer a mode with some Heroes but just fewer. It doesn't have to be all or nothing, we could have one hero per side at a time. Maybe cap the Enforcers at 2 per side at a time, while we're at it.

    But seriously this is nothing more than wishful thinking or a conversation piece imo, only way we get this is on bf3 imo. Also consider this is predominantly a heroes forum.
    Sadly, you may be right. But if we don't express ourselves in this forum they gave us for just that purpose, then there is just about zero chance there will be anything but Heroes, Heroes, Heroes.

    I like agreeing with you. =)

    New/maintain permanent game modes:

    * Heroes Unleashed OR Unlimited Power (I am sadly on vacation and will miss the whole event)
    * Galactic Assault
    * Extraction (+6 maps; remove Enforcers)
    * Turning Point (use current GA maps if necessary)
    * Hero Blast (6v6 HvV)

    If those 5 modes were available, the game would be 1000% better, imo.

    yep agree 10000000000x.

    WAYYY too many heroes watering the experience down. if you run into one its pretty much curtains.
  • I’d play it.

  • I’d be down with that. Less focus on getting to be hero as quick as possible.
  • They should bring back Turning Point and modify the existing GA maps for it.
  • What they should do is just turn all heroes off in GA as a weekend event.

    What should've happened with Trooper weekend.

    They kind of 'owe' us a true 'trooper weekend' for that Strike/Blast playlist with the misleading title as an event.

    Yeah honestly, I think they should put that on a weekly cycle as well, One week of trooper weekend, one week of HU.

    Normal GA weekend, HU weekend, No Heroes weekend, Era Specific Limited-Heroes weekend

    Different groups of players would likely cry foul on all of those, but I think it would be great.

    Only troopers and real vehicles.
  • I wouldn't mind.

  • Would love this. Unfortunately I don’t see this as the direction the game is going in. It’s seeming to pivot from being a shooter with hero’s/Jedi/villains to spice it up to whatever genre Super Smash Brothers is in.

    Maybe it could be a reworked version of "Walker Assault" (in quotes, since the MTT is not a walker, but serves the same purpose, so the mode might need a new title). The units could be the same as the last one. Which would mean
    • One Hero.
    • Two Enforcers (since Death Troopers are Krennic's honor guard).
    • X about of aerials (since anyone could be one in the last game, I'm leaving it ambiguous for the potential remake.)
    • A few vehicles (one Armor and a few speeders, Fighters, and/or Interceptors.)
    Not the numbers I'd prefer, but if I need Boba or something I could wait, or play the other modes. Also, I'd really like the return of Walker Assault!

    This is what modes like HvV are for. Play cross-era hero battles with all available heroes and villains. It can be fun at times but this is not what the large game modes should be about. The large game modes like GA should be focused around infantry & vehicles. Heroes should be limited to a maximum number of 2 per side and no cross-era heroes must be allowed. I just want to play large, immersive movie like SW battles, which capture the essence of the battles and focus on infantry & vehicles. Cross-era heroes just break that immersion and having a dozen heroes on the field at a time renders regular infantry useless.


    If GA stays this hero focused and will keep cross-era heroes, we will definitely need another large game mode, with a limited amount of heroes and no cross-era heroes so infantry gameplay will become more important again. Just having blast & strike is not enough (as those modes are only available on small maps and don't include vehicles).
  • It's time for Turning Point. That mode felt like a true battle on the frontlines of combat, with just troopers and vehicles. It would be so fun in this game!
  • This game apparently doesn’t have the healthy player base that would support various large modes that it’s predecessor had. SWBF 15 had WA/Supremacy and TP and full lobbies.
    This game is just GA and the yet to be released Conquest mode which will probably kill the GA mode.
    This is what happens when temporary events are used as a substitute for permanent content. Players get bored and move on to other games.
