  • Ayy! This has me very excited :)
  • Looking forward to it, thanks!
  • Will we get similar events in the future? Sadly I'm not able to play this weekend and it would have been great to level up some of the heroes and villains I don't use much. :(

    I will not stop complaining until DICE update Leia's Hoth skin's sideburns and add some for Rey!!




  • It's an hour and a half past the start time and I'm not seeing any Triple XP messaging at the end of the rounds in HvV. Xbox version.

    Are you actually experiencing the XP or was that more of a general statement? ;)

    It's not showing for me yet, as of 10 minutes ago or so.

    Are you seeing a Triple XP message at the end of the round or any event panels advertising it? I'm on Xbox also and I see nothing.

    That's cool, I was thinking I'd suddenly become a Han Solo prodigy when I suddenly went up 2 levels in 2 matches. ;)

  • I was playing a round of Galactic Assault on Naboo a few minutes ago, doing quite well, then all the sudden the game crashed and after restart was greeted with the announcement of triple XP before the start menu screen.

    So was this some type of hard start server side, enough to crash normal gaming as well?

    Already at max level for them, so thanks but wont benefit from it, should be all modes at the same time.

    Patience. Other modes will be other weekends. Have you maxed out every single hero/villain in the game?
    Bring back Extraction to the main menu please!

    What the ROADMAP should look like for 2019/2020:
    “Season” 4: Episode IX
    “Season” 5: Rogue One
  • Had every single Hero/Villain maxed, short of Obi-wan, who was at 38.

    Did one match of HvV. Hit 40.

    Next, please.

    I wasn’t responding to your question, but to the thread in general. Having read your question, I can see the opportunity for confusion.

    Sorry about that.
  • Thanks much Team... Kenobi does a lot better in GA - but worth every minute in this Triple event.... I have a problem bumping up Kylo in GA and in HvV - after the freeze is over that dude is gone (needs buff)....
    Other point: I usually main GA and I don't believe HvV is a good place to range the abilities of any hero. I mean: I got away with some monster killings yesterday in HvV. Then went back to GA (Theed) and both villians went down fast. PPL have been calling for nerfs based on HvV battles for over a year???
    Last point: bring back my Boba - what a lousy mohter... in HvV. His rocket barrage is like throwing rocks at tree bark

    Gents thank you for asking, yes all HVV characters are at max level, have been for a while, took 4 days to level 40 obi due to sharing in the clan, we each took turns to level up. Some of the guys do it in a day by going solo.

    My original comment was really meant to ask why not do them at the same time for all modes rather than just the one that way we can pick and choose which ones to appropriately apply the triple xp to.
  • Am I crazy for thinking they changed how they are doing this?

    I thought, that Previously, you got the same amount of points, and then had those points doubled during the XP assignment portion at the end of the round.

    Now, however, it appears they are tripling your basic points during the match. The difference being that now, it also benefits your Experienced and Veteran challenges.

    Thanks, DICE, for waiting until I had all challenges completed before doing this. ;)

    (I find it strange that it's not for Galactic Assault, just the two hero modes. Anyway, it's doing what they wanted. Lobbies are filling up quickly in both for me on PS4).

    Ok. Just clarifying.

    It's for newbies to catch up. It worked because I bought the game and I'm leveling up the characters
  • This event has been awesome. They should keep up triple xp weekends all year round and keep moving them to different multiplayer modes to mix it up.

    This event would have been awesome if it hadn't been for the terrible lag. Since they shut down the UK server I am on the Germany server playing against players from all over Europe. To say abilities and general gameplay were just random luck now would be an understatement. The mode is barely playble, what happened to the UK server (and the Ireland one which was also much better)?
  • Thanks for this amazing event!

    Due to work I wasn't able to spend too much time recently on the game, and with this event I managed to catch up on levelling Grievous/Obi quite fast.

    Please make these events more frequent!
  • I just reinstalled a couple weeks ago. I've been having a blast, the game is much more balanced compared to last time I played (about 7 months ago) and I'm having a lot of fun...until this event.
    Don't get me wrong, it's awesome to try level up your hero, but the heroes vs villains is just so unfun.
    From what I've played, it's mostly whoever can stick together and gang up on the target that'll win. Than it just snowballs into a gang ***** event, because the spawns are all over the place, literally.
    Once you die, you and your whole team seem to spawn on opposite corners of the map. If you're new, you spend a good amount of time trying to group up, only to be ambushed by the entire enemy team.
    Not to mention the stagger you do when you get hit from a lightsaber, and at that point, it's over. they spam til you die because you can't really fight back.
    I've loved coming back and playing, the 1.5 xp event during the holidays made it easier for me to comeback and level up some of my classes.
    This hero event, while the xp is awesome, the actual hero fights are just unfun and full of spamming as a team til the others die.
    And can we limit the amount of CC in this game? It's starting to feel like I'm playing a weird version of World of Warcraft in pvp.
  • It's awesome. I want more of those crazy exp events even thought I have my heroes already maxed out for some time.
  • Is there a way we know the event is happening? I'm on Xbox and nothing shows on the menu saying triple xp. I don't feel a difference in the amount of xp I get.

  • It’s a mess. Apart from the chronic stuttering and lag, nobody is team playing. They’re just using this to level up. I just quit two matches because of it.

    Bossk, boba, phasma and me the only lightsaber user.

    No thanks
  • Great event! Was able to get Boba and Lando to level 40. That makes everybody

    It doesn’t say triple XP at the bottom, but you are definitely getting triple XP. I am on xbox too. Quick matches will generally get you the same XP as a normal longer match 20k. Long matches can get you 40k and higher per match with triple XP!

    For someone like me with 3 platforms...it helped a lot. Finally can see why Han is a beast on PC...getting HS and melting Vader like no tomorrow. Same goes for palp...way easy to aim.

    I want this 3x xp for HvV to return please!
  • Enjoyed leveling characters I never used much before, cool event.

    I hope you do this more in the future. Thanks devs!
  • Just maxed every hero and villain, including all ground units and vehicles. I only need to lvl up star fighters, wondering what the max is for star fighters and hero ships.
  • bought the game on xbox last week and now have level 25 saber heroes :)

    Level 40 for all ships including hero one, best way to guarantee to get them up is play Hero ship mode, rather than wait in normal game for them, but don't expect it to be an easy ride HVV ship mode is very hit n miss (no pun intended) with wait times and player base, (EOR MM doesn't help either due to moving you to different lobby's so the wait happens more often).

    I originally said wasn't really looking forward to the 3 x XP for HVV, as all characters were level 40, i was wrong in my assessment i managed to get veteran milestone for Bobba was at 160,000 to the required max in 5 matches lol, (already had him level 40).
