    So how will the final phase work for the ST era maps - where the darkside only have 2 villains with Kylo/Phasma... and the lightside has Rey/Finn/Han/Leia/Luke/Chewie?
    Is it still going to be 4 lightside heroes available in the final phase?

    Unless they restrict the hero count on the ST era maps down to 2 for the duration of the event, there's really going to be a lot of balancing issues happening there no matter what. Also, they must fix Kylo Ren's frenzy not working and buff Phasma a bit for GA otherwise the First Order might as well be going hero-free on this one.
    Man! Could this game get any more broken?

    I guess they'll limit heroes number to 2 in ST maps.
    One inevitable conclusion of the Eras event will be "we don't have enough heroes/villains for ST era".
    I insist: if they plan to include more heroes after Anakin, Poe and Hux are the best options.

    Jakku and takodana never gets to the final phase anyways. Only a problem to crait
  • They announced it on the first. I'll give them that. But it would have been nice to see dooku earlier.
  • anyone know if the Lightsaber changes are coming with the Count Dooku update?
  • No armored officers= LLLLLLLLL

    I’m really excited for Count Dooku and his additional appearance, but please change the name to make it more accurate before you release it. It’s Dooku’s sparring uniform. He was wearing it before he even knew that they were going to do a dark ritual. Here’s your canon source for the name of the appearance: https://www.starwars.com/tv-shows/clone-wars/sacrifice-trivia-gallery. It’s on the third slide. Please give it the right name when you release it to us because I’m really happy that it’s coming to the game, but I want it to be labeled right. Thank you!
  • Can anyone tell me if the 41st clones skins are being changed? And what are they changing?

    Until now the answer should be no, maybe they’ll say something about it in the dooku update patch notes but personally I think the changes to lightsaber combat will be coming more likely in February
  • Finally an era heroes event!!! :smile:

  • Triple XP. I like it. Hopefully it gets more players to the Hero SA mode. Thanks!
  • @T0TALfps @IronSoldier @F8RGE

    you should also make kills count triple for purposes of unlocking guns and gun mods for the newcomers. that would really inspire them.

    TRIPLE KILL FTW!
  • As a big fan of Galactic Assault that plays mostly on weekends, I look forward to three weekends of GA without alterations.

    Can the Triple XP event for troopers also be in Extraction? I find that game mode more fun than Blast and Strike.
    Add more Extraction and SA maps please!

    What the ROADMAP should look like for 2019/2020:
    “Season” 4: Clone Wars Revival
    “Season” 5: Episode IX
    “Season” 6: Rogue One

    I doubt it. They probably change the appearance for the phase I troopers.

  • Any idea when the new lightsaber combat changes will take effect?
  • A flood of bug fixes....thanks
  • Strong incentive-based events!

    Looking forward to the Coruscant Guard and upcoming 501st trooper updates. Saving the best for last!
  • Is there any plans on making new skins for the OT characters who are in the sequels? IE: A robed Luke with grey hair and green saber and an older Han?

  • for people who bought the game for 9 USD, extra xp weekends are cool but what about more GA and extraction maps ?? i hope that 2019 will bring a lot of new maps !!! happy new year !

    Most battalions and even companies had ARF Troopers (Advanced Recon Force Troopers, and they were scouts.) If Dice was to say that the entire 41st Elite Corps was made up of ARF Troopers, they would be saying that approximately all 36864 troopers were ARF Troopers, which is very wrong. Dice somewhat tried to make the different classes similar to different types of Clone armor, but the Specialist was the closest, and they are in standard armor with a pauldron and macro binoculars. If it was worth all the time it would take to design them, it would be nice to see every variant have different armor types, like standard phase I and II armor, ARF Troopers, Flame Troopers, Jet Trooper, and so on. But that's a lot of character models that other factions don't have. Look forward to when modders get access to making character models. Still, Dice is doing a good job of picking clone appearances. It would also be nice if the Officer's armored appearance had the same variants as the other troopers.
  • congrats those who want ga to be era specific, you must be happy
    cause everything you read on the internet is true...
  • I honestly can't wait for Era weekend for GA I usually play it 40% of the time but that weekend the numbers will bump up to 100% of the time because this is what i've been waiting for once they officially get enough heroes and villains for all the eras I hope they do this full time for GA
  • congrats those who want ga to be era specific, you must be happy

    You can't imagine my friend! Hah, even if it's just for a weekend.....I'll be devoting every waking hour to the GA as I wish it had been done. I still play this game all the time and I appreciate all of us who have kept it alive (even those I have disagreed and debated with) because I know we all want a Battlefront game we can live our skills and imagination with.....and this one weekend will be a gift to me to not see Rey on Naboo.....for the first time ever. NO wall hacks on that map for that weekend my friends.

    I really think this shall prove very interesting because there will be challenging limitations applied for some that should lead to some new strategies and variety in gameplay. The Emperor won't dominate any ST maps, Rey cannot wall hack Endor or Mos Eisley, Boskk won't be gassing the check points on Takodana or Crait, Yoda will probably be PT restricted. Or so it seems.

    This should be a liberating experience! It'll be quite a different Galactic Assault for a few days!
  • Why do we not have double and triple XP(s) count towards milestones, once character is maxed (e.g. level 30 or 40)?
  • Another month I won't be playing...the events take place in game modes I don't like playing at all. GA is the only one I play but even then I haven't even played since November.

    FIX STRIKE FOR GOODNESS SAKE!!!! No point having an event with it when starting a game is totally broken.
  • Here's hoping that they lock the eras hard. Prequel era will always end in a light side victory if they do it based solely off of who is seen in the movies. People tend to miss this specific fact far more often than they should when complaining about cross-era and freedom of choice.

    I think most who want era accurate are fine with keeping him playable ONLY in his combative phase of his life.

    Chewbacca is probably the only one who should cover all eras....I'm sure most who are in support of Era Accuracy only want Yoda playable in his combative era.
