Bring back Hero events.

4 GA games in a row. 4 games where I look at the board and notice the same people playing officer and getting the Hero first. 4 games in a row where the same people play and just get killstreaks. And me, an average player in the middle of the board with 9000 points.
I could use those points for vehicles or reinforcements, but seriously. Everyone wants the Heroes.
I cant ever get a Hero. The best part of Hero events were the avaliablilty of all the Heroes. But now it's just the same 2 players who just heal and buff teammates and then respawn to get the Hero first. And then it's them until the end of the game. Picking easy kill streak Heroes like Han or Bossk. Sometimes we dont even get to the last phase to use more Heroes. So yeah. I think they are trying too hard and sweating profusely clenched like there's no tomorrow. So yeah. Hero events would be cool to being back

    That is fine as long as we get regular lobbies for those of us who don't want to be bothered with 20 heroes running around all over the place.

  • Bring back?

    They never left, it's a once-a-month event.

    Even though I have all heroes maxed, I really like the HU events, it's the chaotic gameplay that appeals to me. HOWEVER, they should really start looking into increasing the players amount for GA whenever this event is active. When this event kicked off for the first time, we had 16 heroes (40% of the server). After Anakin arrives, we'll have 20 heroes (50% of the server) and at that point, it will be too much. They should increase the amount of players to at least 50.

    I loved heroes unleashed it gave lots of players an opportunity to pick a hero but there's an exploit where if you died you could just keep pressing x on the hero you died as and play them again. There needs to be an option like in the 2005 ver. Yes or No? especially when you've accumulated like 16k or more BP and still haven't gotten to play a hero, especially when a bossk player sits in the back not even pushing obj.
  • whats best is a trooper 75% of cost on battlepoints event but only with the assault, heavy, officer, and specialist
    cause everything you read on the internet is true...

    If all they do to get the hero before you is "heal and buff teammates" then it should be easy to do so yourself, no?

    We don't need more Spam Unleashed so half the team is ignoring the objective as a hero and the other half camping the spawn screen waiting for one. Wasting one weekend per month on that trashpile is honestly too much.

    Just play HvV, but everytime you start to fight an enemy roll a die. If it's 3 or below kill yourself (to simulate a starfighter strafe, AT-ST or thermal imploder interceding). You'll have basically the same gamemode.

  • I don't have any trouble getting a hero most rounds but...

    Heroes Unleashed should be a permanent separate mode.

    Been saying that for a while.
  • Yeah, it's pretty obvious to me that Heroes Unleashed needs to be a new mode. I mean, I personally don't care for it, but it seems like it would solve a lot of problems with the community. It's rare for everyone to be so united on an idea. Devs should take note.

  • Separate mode.. Maybe 10% less XP too.
  • Lol..once again, this game cannot afford seperate GA and hero unleashed lobbies..not big enough player base..if they went to that, bye-bye GA as it would take forever to get enough players for a game..i wish they would have both for a week..would be awesome reading all the crying posts in here
  • Personally, though i would rather keep GA as i het a hero and often 2 a game if i want but i enjoy unleashed more for the action...i have talked with over 50 fairly regular players in chat about this and close to 90% of them would ditch GA for unleashed if a choice..and i bet close to 100% for newer players...GA would be dead

    Key thing here is balance. If we kept going with hero specific events then we would have been in the situation where people would have been frustrated and asking us to stop and do something different.

    I agree that the events aren't for everyone and can be quite frustrating for gamers that prefer a more trooper focused large scale mode.

    But why not make Heroes Unleashed a permanent separate mode? It would be the best side game added to BF2 yet. I'm actually genuinely curious. I mean, worst case scenario, players get bored of it and go back to normal GA and you can remove it from the playlist. But I truly don't think that's going to happen.

    Like maybe have Heroes Unleashed a temporary separate mode as part of the Dooku update. Then when the new Conquest mode launches in February, you remove Heroes Unleashed. I know a ton of players will praise the Devs endlessly if they had the option to play Heroes Unleashed throughout the month. Could be a really fun way to level up Dooku instead of the chaos and headache of getting him in HvV. Just a thought to consider.

    Why not make the no cross era event permanent as well?

    As a separate mode? Sure! I'm not worried about splitting a dwindling player base. More mode options will increase the number of players playing this game.

    Wait, are you saying there won't be any more Heroes Unleashed events in future months? Once a month is totally fine though do try to look into increasing the amount of max players in GA while this event is active. 50% of the server being heroes is too much. Adding at least 5 more players per side should be enough.

    If the playerbase can’t have two different GA’s without being gone, then there’s no point in continuous service to the game lol.
