Community Transmission - Darth Tyranus Update

Replies

  • Shame things have started off so bumpy. Still, a tremendous amount of work has gone into Dooku and I look forward to playing as him.
    KNOWN ISSUES
    An issue has occurred with Obi-Wan and Rey not always being able to block attacks from Darth Vader or from Count Dooku, when his Duelist ability is active. The issue is being investigated and expected to be fixed at a later update.

    I predict this is going to annoy a lot of people for some time.

    This is going to break the game for some time I'm sure. I mean the darkside is already OP and now that they get Super OP Dooku and the lightside get a broken Rey and Obiwan. I expect most all Hero game modes will end with the darkside winning.
  • When are we going to be getting Crait for small gamemodes? I want to play HvV and Showdown on it.

    It's great we get Dooku.....but it's one of those 2 steps forward & 3 steps back scenarios where the game is getting worse still before it's getting better. I mean I'm super glad to see the Dooku too even though he sounds 5X more powerful than any character in the game. I'm also glad to see some major bugs get fixed(HOPEFULLY....fingers crossed) with this update, but with just the two known issues mentioned at the bottom, the game is pretty broken again.

    I mean a lot of people only play HvV because GA has too many issues itself. You almost need a spreadsheet to play this game and know all the problems with the person or ability you are coming up against. Now that they have broken Rey and Obiwan simultaneously it almost makes playing HvV worthless because the lightside is already at a huge disadvantage for a number of reasons. Now darkside has a new character that sounds like vader/emperor/ Grievous all rolled into one. Then the best two characters to use against Dooku because of their extended lightsaber blocks now don't work against him or vader. I mean every game is going to have Dooku in it for like the next several weeks because everyone will want to use him.

    Hold on...
    Kylo Ren:
    As a result to above changes, the "Bloodlust" Star Card has now been changed so that Kylo Ren deals additional damage per strike, instead of increasing the amount of strikes. The possible total amount of damage that can be inflicted on a target is now 360 points.

    Frezy hits do 80 damage and as per Bloodlust's 7 hits, he could do 560 damage to a single target. Are you saying that because Frenzy is now more accurate, it will deal less overall damage while using the card or am I incorrectly interpreting this.

    @F8RGE Please kindly clarify.

    From what I understood Kylo will now hit just three times with frenzy while having the bloodlust card equipped but the damage will be increased

    That's exactly what I thought but he said that 360 is the total posible max damage. The current max damage is 560 meaning HE GOT NERFED.

    Dooku is not even out yet and already brings issues. It's amazing you guys can't never release anything bug free.

    I can already see due to this bug, people calling Dooku OP and asking for nerfs during a whole month, then on February he gets a patch fix AND nerf. tsc tsc

    Maybe we should all play with him first.

    It's very obvious he will be extremely overpowered, just like the rest of the Dark Side. The Light Side will now only win if its players are all significantly better.

    Virtually every single patch makes the Dark Side better, and this one is no exception. I can't recall a single patch that made the Light Side better.

    Maybe the one they ks'd Palps.

    You couldn't give us one screenshot? What is going on over there? Be honest with us Ben. You're right about how unacceptable this is.

    Assets are in approvals. We don't do what we did from Sept - Dec and then stop.

    He comes out tomorrow, and you couldn't put up one image of him.

  • Excited for Dooku, but still no fix to Obi Wan's inconsistent force push? And no fix to Grievous thrust surge doing a ballerina spin in mid air? Aaand no Dooku video/picture... :(

    So not being able to destroy Phasma's droid with a lightsaber isn't getting fixed?

    Nor her droid dissapear instantly after she dies.

    They did that to Bossk's grenades long ago, but Phasma's droid and Rey's Mind Trick persist after they die.
  • All I'm waiting for is the next roadmap for the next month or two, the only thing I'm actually excited for is the new game mode.

    I wonder how many people takes to approve a photo or gif for a character.

    Fixed.

    Thanks forgot about Kylo's freeze too.

    That makes 3 more fixes

  • OK. Got it.

    So, DS HvV only needs Vader and Dooku. The other two can AFK. Obi-Rey will be out of commission.

    LS...blaster Heroes only.

    If I’m reading this right, Dooku’s Lightning Stun is basically Luke’s Repulse but with shiny sparks added. It is not a stun like Palp.
  • I’m just as disappointed about the clone skins as everyone but come on guys cut the guys some slack Ben said when the roadmaps are released things are subject to change and I personally would rather have them come later and finished than on time and forced together! Let’s just enjoy using Dooku and prepare for the deployment of Anakin and the new game mode!

    Sounds powerful but I dig the abilities. They sound very appropriate in regards to Dooku canon. In particular like the lightening saber combo.

    I am a little worried he will be OP against heroes but we will see. Not sure he will need the fast dodge cool down.

    Thanks for the info @F8RGE

    I remember a day and time when we got zero news so anything we get is appreciated.

    I know many of you reading this will be disappointed that there are no screenshots or videos of Dooku. I want to apologise for this. We had plans to release screenshots as well as a Community Update video, but unfortunately the production of these was unable to be completed on time. This is not acceptable and steps are being taken to ensure it doesn't happen again.

    This is very good.
    The first thing to fix your problems is to see them first, then fix them.
    I hope you guys can get everything back on track!

  • Can’t wait to try out Dooku. The stated bug fixes should improve hero gameplay dramatically. Let’s hope the new bugs coming won’t be too severe. Thank y’all for your continuing efforts.

    No fixes for Obi-Wan's buggy block or buggy push charge-up? Thanks DICE...

    Dooku seems cool, but I worry about him being OP, he as a knockdown, a debuff with instant cooldown reset potential, and an ability that increases his speed and damage.
  • Hi, when are you going to put darth Tyranus´trailer? Maybe today or tomorrow with the Count Dooku´s update? Thank you very much and may the force be with you
  • Hey EA and DICE! Could you guys maybe help us PC players out? We're still having a lack of audio in-game. It works fine when I disconnect from the WIFI on my computer, but as soon as origin is connected to the internet and online...NO AUDIO. It's just choppy AT ALL TIMES. THERE IS NO CHILL. This applies to Battlefront (2015) and Battlefront II (2017)... Would be greatly appreciated if it was at least acknowledged in a future CT. Thanks for everything you've done for us! Excited for Dooku and more tomorrow!

    So, there's a lot for me to talk about, here we go...
    I've been looking forward to this. Dooku is a really interesting antagonist in Star Wars, and I bet he could be really fun, but there are some things I'm wary of. I like most of what I see with Dooku. Being able to block Sabers better than anyone else, having MORE DASHES, and two-thirds of his abilities sound great. Duelist sounds really fun and perfect as an ability for him, and Exposing Weakness sounds like a great idea (as much as I dislike the sound of the slowing down effect...), that's great. But... I can't help but be disappointed by his Lightning Stun. Really? Another knock-down/stun to add to the Dark-Side's repertoire? With Dooku, that will now be 8 out of 9 Dark Side characters with a stun or knockdown. I'm also irked by the lack of substantial buffs to the Lightside, namely Chewie, Luke, and Obi-Wan now that it will be a consistent Dark Side pushover in Hero and Villain encounters.
    I wish that was as far as my disappointment went, but it's not. I mentioned about moving the Coruscant Guard to February in that heads-up, so I don't want to repeat myself about it here. I am baffled as to how Dooku's own appearance isn't coming in this update, it doesn't sound good. The thing that gets me the most is that Dooku will be launching with a SEVERE BUG. Yikes.
    I think you guys do truly care, and have to face more hassles than most to get your product out, but this is really unfortunate. I hope February goes smoother, I'm excited to play as Dooku when I'm not beat out by whoever is right above me on the scoreboard, but ah well. Hope all goes well.

    Why change the Specialist melee? It’s one of the few unique abilities of the class. It’s not like there’s squads of them running around beating the snot out of everyone. Just focus on fixing the heroes. Leave the grunts alone....

    I’m also rather disappointed in this update in general. I hope the next one brings more than this along without being delayed any further.

    Nice!!! But my disappointment I have is that the "twice the pride, double the fall" quote wasn't added as an emote or voice line. That's the third time a quote has been over looked. They didn't add obi wan Kenobi' s " I have the high ground" quote and the "back away I will deal with this Jedi slime myself" quote for grievous. We should be told what part of the map we will be playing on Geonosis in the smaller game modes. In my opinion heroes vs villains should be in the arena.

    damn. Hopefully the hotfix is already in the works and won't take too long

    any updates on fixing the stick drift on the xbox? It's been an Xbox bug since day1. Seems to have gotten worse with the more updates

    I really wish we got a picture of Dooku, but I digress. I think getting some of the bugs fixed is a great improvement. In order for this game to succeed it needs to follow a release schedule more structured. Look at rainbow six siege. It’s done well simply by adding two new operators and a map every three months. If you give yourself more time but follow your schedule reliably people will stop freaking out and be comforted because some people can’t handle not knowing what’s going to happen in the future. Dice I beg of you. I want this game to do well. I am in the works of creating a video essay on this game and I want to bring players in this game but I have to be honest. Follow your roadmap more strictly and you will be rewarded. Much unbalance in the force, there is.

    If we got one-two heroes and a new map (for ALL modes - especially HvV) every three months nearly all complaints about lack of content would stop. Even if they were recycled maps from 2015.

    I have had mine upped for a long time and it is still a consistent issue. This needs to not only be looked into, but finally addressed by the devs/mods.

    FIX THE STICK DRIFT ON XBOX PLEASE

    Also- will this update go into effect at the usual times? Since things are getting pushed back this seems like a valid question. XBox at 4am EST? @F8RGE Thanks for the communication thus far.

    Im happy about this update, really im not joking... But please, please EA, we need more maps for extraction game mode, u have add Geonosis for more game modes, so why not also for extraction? And another thing, please unloack the statistics screen that is actually already in the game, some cheater have found it within the game code, so why dont u unloack it?

    hard to argue against this
  • Can you please add a bug fix as well please cause I’ve been experiencing lag on the game

    Which is why I will not be playing Obi-Wan or Rey in HvV until this bug is fixed.
    Add more Extraction and Hunt maps please!
