  • no it's not. no one cares about your sense of 'immersion'

    who wants a game with locked content? this is stupid

    Far better than HU

    Yeah but that's like saying I'd rather have food poisoning than cancer. Neither are ideal and just make problems worse.

  • Hahaha, it's a joke. Couldn't have been worse timing as well with dooku's release. You just locked out content and called it an event lmao, please just let this experiment die.

    Make Heroes Unleashed Permanent and give all the other kids their trooper only mode and let the player base decide what playlist take 30 minutes to backfill. I guarantee it won't be Heroes Unleashed.

    those who like standard GA would you be in favor of it being replaced with era specific GA? thoughts?

    absolutely not. Balance in the objectively most balanced variant regular GA is sketchy enough as is (esp with organized squads).

    HU is spam and era locked has automatic losses depending on what faction's necessary units were arbitrarily limited.

    Era lock I'd only play GCW maps and probably steer clear of GA in general. HU I wouldn't play the game at all.

    now there are two factions, those that want heroes unleashed, and those that want era specific. possible to make both permanent modes or would it split community too much? I guess they would have to get rid of standard GA or it would be too much. the question then, those who like standard GA would you be in favor of it being replaced with era specific GA? thoughts?

    lol, if Heroes Unleashed didn't make the cut from all the moaners and trooper kids, what chance does this ***** have? Lmao, Forget it. Dead on arrival.

    Edit: Press LOL if you agree. Haha, cringe.

    Errr no it isnt, this is absolute garbage of a mode now. On the last phase of most of the maps u can only be 2 heros now as the light side have only obi wan yoda and chewbacca to choose from. Its only u gamers from the older generation that appreciate this, noone else does. Still its fun wrecking people who are forced to play as chewy once either yoda or obi wan have been defeated.

    It's even worse on ST maps, might as well just stay trooper.

    I can see why this wouldn’t appeal to players who think they should just be able to run wild and use opposing troopers as saber and blaster fodder.

    You can actually farm turnips as Palp, Bossk or Leia even easier on some maps since their only counters are locked out.

    No Han or Lando to frag the gas/lightning spamming bouncy boi at the end of the hall.

    No Iden or Bossk to snipe the lazer brain going on a 50+ killstreak at the back of Crait.

    Heh, may play it myself now and...….experiment.

  • Trash, the outspoken fanboys have done it again.
  • If they made this a permanent SEPARATE mode then I would love this game...AND I promise I would never again come to the forums and comment on anything. How about THAT?? HAHA...all the posters who hate me should push for this as a separate mode!

    It is glorious...thank you DICE.

    I was mainly referring to the final phase and the hot mess it can be at times.

    Sounds like your a good player and well aware. I’m sure a little shake up of things won’t hold ya back from W’s.

  • so, if 'immersion' is the problem with a lot of you how would you feel seeing someone on a ST map with solo han skins instead of old han?

    just wondering.
  • wait, there is no 'old' han skin, nvm... cancel this event - immersion RUINED

    That part is still a bit iffy if you ask me. Wouldn’t say no to a few more era-specific skins. But it’s obviously better and the big thing with this event, imo, is the reduced hero presence.

    For some reason, I'm bothered that obi and Yoda are available in the OT. It's like going to a family gathering and your grandpa shows up but he's suddenly 20 years old....

    Are Luke, Han and Leia available in the ST?

    Yes.

    Who are the villians in ST? Is it just kylo and phasma?

    crylo and Phasma. They should have given Bossk or Boba for some variety.

    Both survived the OT, unless Mickey decided Boba is still hanging out in the Sarlaac.


    FO does not need Bossk or Boba, boba is dead. Dead dead dead, and if he wasn't he'd be what, high 60s low 70s in the new trilogy. Considering he was what, 10-14 years old before during ROTS.

    Not sure how long Bossk can live, but he HAS NOT been in any NT movie. He should NOT be part of FO. You all wanted Hero Restriction to be cannon based. Well here you go.

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE MAKE THIS PERMANENT!

    I'm kidding.

    I've only had time for one round of GA, and found that era locked heroes, at least through one round neither enhanced nor diminished my level of enjoyment of the mode. It's still my favorite mode overall.
  • Look, it’s for one weekend, it’ll be finished not even that long into Sunday and we’re back in action again.

    As for me, I can’t say I’m a fan because Dooku has just been released and my hopes to play and level him have essentially been thrown out the window unless I drop out of most GA matches and pray for DS Clone Wars. HvV is just a mess and I’m not subjecting myself to that alone.

    So all in all a bit disheartening, but it is what it is.

    I like this, four heroes at once is too many anyway

    Wrong, needs to be at least 6 per side simultaneously.

    Wrong. Two is the right number.

    No, two ensures that most players won't get a chance to play a hero in the entire game, because the top two players on each team will hog them.
    Only better than average players who are also selfish think that two heroes is better.
  • I agree with the poor timing of this event with the recent release of Dooku. I’m a die hard player and typically place in the 10 top and it still can be difficult to get a hero due to everyone saving up their BP for one. It seems like the community is split and I agree that two permanent modes should be made to appease everyone. I don’t have the metrics so I don’t know if that would fracture the community. We only have one mode with heros and troopers. I was an obsessive fan of Sabotage in BF2015, especially the end phase where it would be 4 heros in a 8v8 hero/trooper mix. It had an exciting balance of insanity and fairness.

    You guys, THIS IS SO FUN. :smiley:

    I'm actually enjoying GA for the first time since the game released!

    I'm going to convince my group to play with every spare minute we have all weekend.

    Unfortunate that this is one of my weekends where I work both Saturday and Sunday. =/

    This should be a permanent option, alongside the regular version of GA. Or it should at least be a recurring event. This is the only way I'm going to ever bother playing GA again. :smile:

    Regularly scheduled recurring events should be the norm. Throw a bone to everyone. I'd play everything. Normal GA, No Heroes GA, Heroes Unleashed, Era Locked.

    This game is over a year old, if people who left return for one weekend a month, I'd see that as a good thing.

    I don't really have a preference. I just love Galactic Assault.
