    As always, DICE makes a decision and then people come out of the woodwork to defend it with the same old “you whiny crybabies” “go make your own game” “you people are never satisfied”.

    People who praise every move taken by Dice and hush the critics halt progress. Yall wouldnt even have these new clone skins if people didnt “complain” about it

    Where were all these pro phase-mixing people before? I never saw threads requesting it.
    It also seems to be all the noobs and lurkers who've had accounts for a few years but never actually post anything in main discussion page.
    Makes me wonder if these are troll accounts or EA shills.
    Don't forget all the guys trying to shut down criticism by saying things like, "It's just a game, nobody cares about it, it's not important."

    When the only way to defend the change you've made it is by name-calling and arguing that video games don't matter, You might want to think about what you've done.

    bruh, you guys are shutting down criticism of liking mixing phases in a sandbox game by calling anyone who likes it shills and ea paid posters, Get the kark out of here.

    if you like mixed phases thats fine. Havent seen pro-phase mixing people being called whiny crybabies, unlike those who are opposed to it

    Also this game is not a Sandbox. If it were Wookies could be used by the darkside and tie fighters could be flown by clones.
    At this point Dice is dipping their toes into the sandbox water when they should just jump into the pool already.

    Do you get this upset during HvV when Dooku squares off against Han Solo?

    Jings, it's not even close to having Stormtroopers and FO troops.

  • I believe it would be cool to create your own battalion, maybe a elite group of snipers, known for their dark armour and green visors ( or whatever those eye covers are) or a small platoon of assault troopers who aren't super special or powerful,but are there when you need them. Who are known as the underdog battalion, not only customize yourself in a variety of ways, and when i say making your own battalion i mean creating a guild, where you can create a description of your battalion, what is required to be in your battalion, and then they may join your party or guild. Obviously an idea that will never come into fruition, and the other groups of troopers deserve some spotlight as well (Golden Battle Droids!) but an idea nonetheless, I would love to hear your ideas or feedback for this idea.

  • @F8RGE Can you confirm if we are getting the 41st Scout Trooper Helmet? Or is it the 91st Helmet we see in ROTS that Neyo/BARC's have that we are getting, or both?? Charlemagne keeps confusing everyone on twitter and it's very frustrating because he keeps changing what he is saying. Thank you.
  • I'd love it if the 91st had both standard and BARC helmet options.

    This was missing from day one! Finally! I only wish officer had shield visor like heavy. Please add this! Or are we getting commanders as part of reinforcements? I would like commanders like Rex, or Cody... as reinforcements...

    I like fact that you can chose phase I or II.

    Now all we need is more Clone era maps, more planets, some new game mode, and new weapons! Current maps are boring over and over.



  • At 27 second mark. Is that phase 1 and 2 and every legion?

    I say questions answered.

    Good work dice.

    Charlemagne literally just said 'no'. No confusion there. They clearly got mixed up with the Recon and Scout helmets.

    INCOMING TRANSMISSION

    The topic of Clone Trooper armour is one that we’ve seen a lot of feedback on across the last few months and back in December last year we mentioned that we were making some changes to the Clone Trooper appearance system.
    We’ve heard a lot about authenticity when it comes to Clone Troopers and how they look, which is why we have been working closely with our friends at Lucasfilm to ensure that each legion is representative of how you would expect them to look.

    One of the key goals for what we outline below is to bring you a lot more variety and choice to your Clone Trooper experience while retaining this authenticity.
    DEFAULT APPEARANCES

    As part of this update, Clone Troopers will have a new default appearance. The frequently requested ‘shinies’ will now become the default look for all Clone Troopers.

    For those wanting to use the previous planet specific default appearance, you will still be able to do so as they will now become free unlocks.

    pytx0fufevjo.jpg
    104th Phase 1

    PHASES

    Another of the changes being implanted for this updated revolves around the different Phases of Clone Troopers.
    We will be separating both the Phase I and Phase II Troopers and allowing you to use them as individual appearances as you desire. What this means is that should you prefer the Phase I version of a specific legion you will be able to use them regardless of the planet you are playing on.
    TROOPER VARIETY

    Under the new system, Troopers will be visually different from one another, but all the time retaining the overall theme of their specific legion.

    What this means is a Heavy will have different markings to a Specialist (and Assault, Officer…), but you will still be able to tell which legion they belong to.

    zsokkermdf35.jpg
    104th Phase 2

    ARMOURED OFFICERS

    One of the more prominent bits of feedback we’ve received revolves around Clone Trooper Officers. Under the current Trooper system, Officers only have the naval uniform appearance as an option. Once the new system rolls out in the February update, Clone Trooper Officers will be able to equip armour the same way as Assault, Specialist, and Heavy Troopers.

    The naval uniform is not going away, though. It will remain as a free unlock for anyone wishing to use it.
    LEGIONS

    The changes being made also means that the number of potential Clone Trooper Legions being available to choose from will increase.
    • New Default "Shinies" (incl. Navy Officer)
    • 501st Battalion
    • 327th Star Corps
    • 91st Recon Corps (w/ new helmet)
    • 104th Wolf Pack
    • 212th Attack Battalion
    • Coruscant Guard
    • 41st Elite Corps
    • 181st Armor Division
    • 41st Ranger Platoon
    EXCHANGE CRATES

    With these changes, we will be implementing a system that will exchange the old Appearances for the Phase II version of the new Appearances. As part of this process, we will be removing the currently existing Appearances from the game.

    What this means is that anyone that currently owns either, or multiple of the 104th, 212th, 41st, 327th or 91st Appearances will receive the updated versions via an in-game crate. Simply head to the crate menu once the update is live and you’ll find your new Appearances waiting for you.

    gapcffenin3b.jpg
    501st Phase 1


    APPEARANCE COSTS
    With the inclusion of Officers getting armoured Appearances, the legion bundles will now cost 60,000 credits or 1,500 crystals. Legion bundles will contain all of the Phase II Appearances for a specific Legion.

    Phase II Clone Trooper Appearances will be classified as rare and will cost 20,000 credits each, or 500 crystals.. The Phase I variants will be common and are priced at 5,000 credits each, or 150 crystals.

    When this update arrives on February 27th we will be granting everyone the "Legion Crate". This crate is intended to grant new players a ‘starter kit’ of Clone Trooper Appearances, along with some credits.
    • 41st Ranger Platoon (Phase I and II)
    • All 4 Phase I Appearances for the 41st, 91st, 104th, 212th, and 327th Legion.
    • 60,000 credits

    The "Legion Crate" will be available from February 27th and will be available indefinitely.
    CORUSCANT GUARD

    This division of elite troopers was designated to protect the capital of the Galactic Republic and are identified by the red markings across their armour.

    They could often be found patrolling the streets of Coruscant while also had the responsibility of protecting buildings of high importance. As the war progressed, the Coruscant Guard would go on to find themselves serving as bodyguards for members of the Galactic Senate and even the Supreme Chancellor himself.

    While a lot of their duties would see them assigned to Coruscant, they also went off-world, often accompanying the Jedi.

    One such mission saw them accompanying Jedi Master Yoda to the coral moon of Rugosa for a secret meeting with the King of Toydaria. The small force found themselves up against Asajj Ventress, apprentice to Count Dooku and some of her best Battle Droids.

    Through the leadership and guidance of Yoda, the Coruscant Guards were able to make their way towards the negotiation site, successful in their mission but Asajj Ventress did escape.
    501st BATTALION

    “A great Jedi once told me that the best leaders lead by example.”Captain Rex

    Perhaps the most well-renowned Clone trooper legion, the 501st Battalion led by Jedi General Anakin Skywalker and Captain CT-7567, more commonly known as Rex, fought across many of the biggest and most important battles of the Clone Wars. Though they had the same hearts and the same blood as all their brothers, their minds were sharpened by the diverse battlefronts they fought across.

    mw9xj8eynua0.jpg
    501st Phase 2


    However, their Jedi General, Anakin Skywalker, was also a source of their creativity and skill. Being forced to follow along with the maverick warrior, the 501st learned to adapt, think outside of their training, and to do whatever it took to secure victory, though never at the cost of innocent people. It was with pairing Anakin’s untraditional tactics and Rex’s by-the-book strategies that they were able to grow into one of the greatest Clone legions the Grand Army of the Republic had to offer.

    We can’t wait to see the new look Clone Troopers deploying onto the battlefront alongside the 501st and the Coruscant Guard. All of the above will be available once the Chosen One Update releases later this month on February 27th. We’ll be back shortly with all the details on Anakin Skywalker.

    Edit: Removed 87th Sentinel Corps as these are the 41st Ranger Platoon. Chosen One Crate is called "Legion Crate".



    Hello. What will happen to kamas and pauldrons? Those are very important and the tranmission indicates they will be gone... Thanks.

  • Hello. What will happen to kamas and pauldrons? Those are very important and the tranmission indicates they will be gone... Thanks.

    It's possible that they simply excluded them for a better look at the armor itself. I don't see them removing Kamas and pauldrons for no good reason.

    Considering the mixed reactions to clone's armors being mixed togheter, what do you guys think of this idea?

    Clone Skins toggle option


    If it's ok for everyone, I don't see why we couldn't try to make some noise for it.

    I really couldn't care less. Clone content is irrelevant to me. Mixing phases all seems fine to me. Might even be a bit fun.
  • I wonder what will happen to bandoliers, kamas, shoulder pauldrons, and backpacks. I think they look fine on the class that currently uses them.
  • Sgt_Fergus wrote: »
    Will there be an authenticity visual option? Where people can have their customization if they want but for those than want authenticity, they see everyone where armor that is more accurate to that battle? like only seeing phase 1 troopers on Kamino. I know there are those that like customization option, I just prefer the authenticity. It was already bad enough with Rey on Kashyyyk fighting Boba it just seems weird already, didn't much care for that and this is kinda off-setting more.
    Don't hold your breath. These companies may pull a good act as if they care about authenticity, but then they're mixing phases, mixing legions, universalizing environmental skins, and mixing eras. They obviously don't care.

    @F8RGE

    Can you clarify if anything is going to change with the jet pack clone troopers skins?

    Their skin colors were a little strange ever since the game came out......Kamino GA they get black stripes, Kamino Strike they get red stripes, Kashyyk I think is red which is different than the standard green stripes that the rest of the standard characters use to have(now the 41st Ranger Platoon).

    Will the jetpack troopers have the option to play as phase one or two?

    It’s not tooooo clear, but I think what he was trying to say is that we’ll be able to choose skins for phase I and II separately, but then again, I could be mistaken.

  • I've been wondering.... I've been wanting credits so I have enough for Anakin, the new clones, and I still haven't bought Grevious and Dooku. I'm at 168,000 credits right now. Im not trying to be greedy, but when they grant the extra 60,000 credits+the clone legions, will that apply to us players that have been playing for a long time? (since august for me)

    Honestly, having phase 1 and phase 2 available doesn't bother me in the slightest personally. This is a game where Rey can fight against Sith who died before she was even born for goodness sake. DICE has just one way of making money to fund the development of further DLC, and that is skins, of course they would make it possible to buy the phase 1 skins. If it keeps DLC support going the rest of the year, I am all for it, throw as many skins at us as you can DICE.
  • I know they say "we care about the canon in this game" but if so why didn't we get:
    :Episode 4 Luke Skywalker
    :Episode 4 Princess Leia
    :Hooded Darth Maul WHEN THEY HAVE A HOODED SKIN FOR YODA
    :Maybe a Jango Fett skin for Boba?

    Sorry, I needed to vent. I still love this game, it can just be frustrating. (Anyone else experiance when your trying to take down the AT-AT with the missile launcher, but someone kills you at the last second before you shot it?)

    I think you mean "Chosen One" crate where you get all the updated skins for free if you already have them, plus 60,000 credits, and something else.......then yes. Anyone now and anyone who buys the game in the future will get this crate.

    I hope that since they mean anyone in the future will get this crate....that implies that there will be a lot more content in the future to come so that they can keep getting new people to the game. I mean we haven't heard about anything past March in the roadmap.
  • F8RGE wrote: »
    Is the Chosen One Crate going to be free

    Yes.

    Side note, it is called the Legion Crate. The name got updated in the time the CT was written and published.

    I feel like I should be outraged by this. Hang on...

    How dare you lie to me about a chosen one crate!

    Okay, glad I got that out of my system.

  • Can't wait. Between Anakin, the new clone appearances, and extra looks, it sounds like it will be a pretty full update.
  • So, what "ruined" the game in the first place was the lootboxes. Now you are giving us an awesome lootbox.

    what "ruined" the game was the loot boxes bound to the progression system. Please do some research before being so negative.

    Sounds like a great update to me! Hope they are doing some of this rework for imperials as well, where we get different legions / skins (maybe from rogue one)
