Battle Point Event: Eras

    Once again, LOVE THIS EVENT!!!

    Three issues:

    TIMING
    As many have noted, doing this right after Dooku released was a really bad idea. Should have switched it with the Triple Hero XP event. As it is, this event is going to get a lot more hate just because people will be frustrated at not being able to choose the new hero all the time. And despite not being a hero player, I sympathize. I hope whoever is looking at the feedback from this event (if anyone is looking) will take that extra hate from timing into consideration.

    SELECTION
    I've seen General Kenobi on GCW maps like Endor and Yavin and Death Star. Looks goofy in his young Clone Wars aspect. If you're going to do it, do it right -- make an Old Ben skin, and make it the automatic default on GCW matches. Or take him out, make him Clone Wars only. I've also seen Yoda in those same OT matches, but he should be Clone Wars only.

    Same with Luke, Han, and Leia in FOW matches... give the Old skins as automatic defaults, or just leave them out. Young Han and Young Lando skins should be absolutely unseen in FOW matches (though really, they should have just been free but unbuyable defaults for matches on Kessel).

    BIG PICTURE
    THIS EVENT SHOULD BE PERMANENT. But the regular version should also be retained, there's lots of people who like it even if I don't.

    (Really, all these events should have been options alongside the regular version, co-opting one of the game's most popular modes is inevitably going to annoy a lot of players.)

    Failing this event being made permanent, it should be a regularly recurring event.

    I agree that this should be permanent, but they haven't even tried to make HU permanent, so I would say that this is most likely going to be a recurring event.

  • I hope it stays as an event. Its cool but the regular GA is more fun

    Nice when it makes you happy.
    My mind about that is not so positive. I clearly don't like it when the freedom i got for one year to choose all fo the Heroes and Villains gets cut down.

    For me this event is clearly boring and i never would like to see this as a permanent mode.
    No offense, just my mind about the event.

    I would guess because if there was a choice of two versions the chance that trooper fodder availability severly dropped and then the Hero Seal Clubbers would whine and whine a salt river?
  • Hero Seal Clubbers would whine and whine a salt river?

    We'll see who's whining a salt river when this event comes to an end.

    just to add my 2c this is star wars not battlefield, people come here to play Siths and Jedis ... heroes unleashed FTW!

    No this is battlefront with was a star wars that started as a game based on Battlefield . We come here to play trooper gameplay.
    We play Empire at war to to play a star wars strategy game.

    When were the Star Wars Battlefront games ever about the heroes? ... Trooper combat has always been the focal point of the series as far as I’m concerned. With this event, Battlefront 2 has finally taken a step towards that.

    I'm pretty sure its only this game that has such a heavy focus on heroes.

  • Am I the only one getting matches that go through to the end in pretty much every map, every game? I have yet to have a match that has finished in the 1st or 2nd phase. I think the balance is absolutely fine...

    The one map I had time to play was Geonosis, and yes, it went all the way to the end.

    In general, it is a terrible event.

    Game balance is severely out of whack.

    The First Order now all lose by default, the CIS is even worse off now, and even worse the GCW maps have all been crippled. Phase 3 of Hoth, for example, has been turned into phase 4 of Kamino, they do not have enough heroes to break through the opposing WWs. Yoda spam is now even worse.

    Here is what happens on every map:

    Geonosis: Didn't get this one, probably still hampered by the ATTE balance, heroes don't mean much on this map anyway.

    Kamino: Bad map before now even worse now that phase 4 they only get 2 heroes.

    Theed: Droids can't get up the stairs same as before, even if they did get past phase 2 Yoda spam being worse now and there not being enough heroes to break through the WWs the CIS won't be winning here.

    Kashyyyk: Yoda and WWs hide in the Turbotank and win, nothing changed here

    Yavin: Phase 4 WWs and Yoda hide in the command center and win, not enough villains to break through

    Hoth: As stated before Phase 3 of Hoth has been turned into Phase 4 of Kamino

    Mos Eisley: Again not enough Villains to break through into the U-Wing area on the final phase, Yoda spam seemed extremely worse here throughout the entirety of a match.

    Death Star: If the DS get their heroes first they win or the LS gets theirs and the DS will never stop them and their WWs for the rest of the match.

    Endor: Same as DS, DS has 0 chance on the final phase now

    Jakku: The First Order loses

    Takodonna: The First Order loses

    Starkiller Base: The First Order loses

    Crait: The First Order loses


    There is little incentive to play now given this hit to the game's balance, the First Order have no heroes that are good for this mode, Yoda spam is even worse, and the DS doesn't have enough villains to push through the final phases.

    See all of your problems are about Heroes....and I'm noticing that Troops are FINALLY able to fight out these objectives with vigor and balance. Heroes step into SUPPORT and that they have been doing quite well. You're not able to just cream into the room with Rey, Luke and Yoda playing up the killz...now you have to play hard and dont be afraid to sacrifice that Hero for the 18 troop army which is having an intense full scale battle with you now.

    It's a breathe of actual tactical gameplay for GA. Not the same old, same old...and it is rewarding to win battles now.

    Hold on just a minute, are you trying to say Yoda can’t clear an entire room by himself? Because that is categorically not true no matter what way you try and slice it. Rey can certainly give it a good shot, most heroes and villains can.

    my experience as well. The extra, unique heroes are simply replaced by armies of identical vehicles, enforcers and aerials that for a regular trooper serve the same role of farming you until you likewise upgrade to a better unit. The whole "trooper combat" meme isn't happening because the mode isn't designed for it.

    Except that yet again the lightside variants are superior (WW and Jet trooper > all) and grants them yet another advantage.

    Meanwhile I'm still playing hero and farming troopers basically all game every game. It's just that those games seem to rarely ever get to P3/4. I win as LS early and then lose as DS the next round early as well.

    Huh? You've NEVER seen Yoda taken out entering a room with enforcers, heavies, assaults and officers?? What are you on about? That's a ridiculous statement. Sure we've seen Yoda's (and other Heroes) clear out a room all by themselves, and I've seen just as many times they tried (even Yoda) and couldn't hold off all of the ammunition coming their way.

    Where in my post, which you quoted, does it say "Yoda cant clear a room"..??

    Moral of the story is Yoda can happily take on a room of enforcers and troopers purely because of the fact that most of them are trash against him. The super battle droids are useless, let’s not kid ourselves. You’ll only get a good player using slowing effects like Palpatine.

    You have a funny way of generalizing how "invincible " super gewd Hero players are....and I dont know why you're going on about it.

    You’re quite right, my mistake, you won’t see all of them going on a rampage.

    You’ll just see Yoda and the Wookiees do it instead, or Finn and the Wookiees.

    I should know because literally every map I’ve played with those characters available is what it has become so far this weekend, and personally I love it. Means I’m pretty much invincible throughout, and Palpatine/Bossk still mashes most everything, possibly even better now there are less other heroes to stop him, and the frankly shocking targeting of heroes means most just carry on shooting at everything but the threat.

    There’s no carrying the FO though, they’re pretty much written off as trash without hero support on their maps. Bit of a shame, but heyho, sacrifices needed to be made.

    So thank you for the weekend, actually, the farming has been most enjoyable!

  • Anyway I'm jumping back in to play this as long as I'm available to this entire weekend. Questioning why I'm here listening to the same few people whine.

    Peace!

  • OP "heerohhs" can't save you all the time.
    keep cheesing your way to winning (i.e. relying on hero play as your bragging rights in a shooter)
    I love the HU event
    I enjoy HU everytime it comes out because it's all out hero insanity.


    When you realize you've been projecting this whole time.

  • Originally, I wasn’t going to play GA this weekend and was just going to play HvV and try to level up Dooku. Honestly, I am now seriously considering playing GA. Though I am generally a big hero player (who loved HU), what I am hearing about the more balanced third/fourth phases sounds actually appealing (for a trooper or another hero). I might just give this a try tomorrow.

    Go for it man, I enjoyed it, except on the ST maps. FO had no chance.

    Well, played a few more matches tonight, and while I'm honestly happy that those of you who wanted this have got it, it's not for me.

    I found it very frustrating. And not because I wasn't getting a hero....I think it's because I felt I had nothing to play for. Never in 3+ hours saw a hero available. I could be an enforcer or a tank....woooo.....I'm max level for almost everything but vehicles and heroes and honestly no need to play those until thier respective xp weekends. I realise I sound contradictory, but it's not that I wanted to be a hero, it's that I never had a choice. Maybe another situation for a good argument for a hero queue?

    Again...glad for those of you that wanted this. I'll give it another shot or two this weekend but it wasn't fun for me and I don't really have a desire to put much more effort into it. I really was hoping I'd like it but I never saw the balance others are talking about. It was still 3+ hours of steamrolls and spawn camping.

    I found it very frustrating. And not because I wasn't getting a hero....I think it's because I felt I had nothing to play for.

    Well as Dash says....play to win, heh.

    True. I'll gladly take that victory screen over anything. But when you are on the bad side of a steamroll....well, at lease I can get some xp for this or that hero. Maybe it is a conditional response, but when out of all these choices laid out on the spawn screen I never once saw more than 2 additional units lit up, even with enough bp for heroes multiple times over, it got old really fast.

    Once I had the game tell me phasma was available. By the time the spawn screen loaded, she was gone. Sorry, but I found it boring and also not a true era lock. More like "slightly more appropriate cross era".

    Originally, I wasn’t going to play GA this weekend and was just going to play HvV and try to level up Dooku. Honestly, I am now seriously considering playing GA. Though I am generally a big hero player (who loved HU), what I am hearing about the more balanced third/fourth phases sounds actually appealing (for a trooper or another hero). I might just give this a try tomorrow.

    Go for it man, I enjoyed it, except on the ST maps. FO had no chance.

    First thing I did when I woke up today was to take Jakku as first order. My contribution was to burn people from behind cover.

    We had a Kylo that held West all by himself. Not sure what the opposition was doing.

    Only hera that feels truly authentic is PT era.

    Yoda and PTKenobi doesn't looks good in OT era, young Lando and Han neither.

    Young Luke, Young Leia and Young Han also looks bad in ST era.

    It also doesn't help that the new hero is from PT era, so yeah i'll only stick to PT map this weekend.

    Yeah it's not quite the ...ideal...line up. It does make me wonder how cool it would have been if the ST and OT had older skins for Luke, Leia and Han. Plus I'd love an Old Obi Wan skin with his hood up for the OT maps. I wish those young Han/Lando skins never showed up or I would have them a Kessel default skin just for HvV....that was silly "content" to make people pay for anyway.

    But the best thing we take away from this is seeing the uses of the specific heroes on specific maps...and the two at a time makes for more troops pushing and a bigger feel of a Star Wars battle going on...with Heroes acting as team leaders and occasional backup as opposed to their own mass horde playing their own version of BF15 HvV.

    But I still wish we had a HU GA (I really love that mode too)...an Eras GA...and Vanilla GA. This game would cease to have such rivalry between players wishes and the playerbase would most likely increase and sustain for a good while.

    The game is a lot better and balanced now thanks to the reduced hero counts. Make it permanent.

    They need to ditch regular ga, keep this and whichever hero mess the heroes unleashed fans prefer.
