    ...and I'm out!

    Can you explain why?

  • hopefully we will get more maps in the future.
    I'm concerned about the AI units--- the ones in arcade are incredibly dumb. We havent seen AI in multiplayer yet, I'm dubious as to the value they might add.

    Might be they are sticking with 20vs20 because they don't have the player numbers to maintain 32vs32.

    If it's AI or nothing I'll take the AI. BF3 conquest was incredibly empty with most lobbies topping off at 30 something kills, a snore fest. Its why the majority were playing tdm on noshar canals.

  • A surprise to be sure, but an unwelcome one.
  • I want private matches in arcade with this
  • Some people forget about the lightsaber combat changes promised..

    Pros:
    New Content
    improved AI
    Era restricted heros


    Cons:
    No Star fighters
    On the Rail Transports
    Seems like no simultaneous battles on ground and in the ship
    20 v 20
    one map
    one era
    inability to pilot a starfighter into an enemy hangar
    cutscenes


    I don't think that this is anywhere close to what the community has been anticipating.

    1 map sounds like a temporary game mode.

    I can’t handle playing the same map over and over. You need at least 4-5 maps for something like this.

    I don’t care how awesome the map and mode are to play, it is simply too much repetition being locked into one map.

    EPIC FAIL!!!
  • In fact, I'll probably uninstall because though enjoyable (when playing GCW era) I feel bad for indirectly supporting this sub-par dev team, and its insistence on juvenile fanservice to some obscure cartoon fandom that just happens to screech a lot on reddit and offer up nothing but slavish praise.

    I'm sorry, but your perception of things is a bit biased, it seems. The 'cartoon' wasn't quite as obscure as you make it out to be, and this isn't 'fan-service' directed purely at it: it is also directed at fans of the prequels, which were plentiful even in the original Battlefront II.

    You really should give at least a review of the show a look, by the way. It does seem juvenile at first, but it really redeemed the prequels.
    Seen plenty of it and I'm totally unimpressed. Frankly if it didn't have star wars slapped on it I wouldn't be able to tell it from the plethora of other generic Science fiction kid shows I've seen. Aesthetically and thematically it doesn't resemble Star Wars.

    Prequels are so hilariously bad they should've been rendered non-canon at the same time legends was.

    At the very least sweep them under the rug (which it looked as though Disney was smartly doing initially but didn't follow through on).

    They definitely don't deserve a shred of content until we have literally everything from both the OT classics and the newer ST and OT spinoff material (which aside from TLJ is generally quite good and needs marketing and promoting far more than some 20 year old flops, anyway).

  • 1 year for this and they only did want they did in the past with the death star dlc in Battlefront 1 (Wich was for my point of view a lot better than capital supremacy) also if you have a very low budget crew why don't let the fans have mods like in pc. They do a lot better job and also is with a lot of love from people who loves star wars and knows what they are doing. Best examples... Clone trooper skins, hero skins, new hero like Cody and also the fans can do a realistic "capital supremacy" like the ground to space mod in the original battlefront 2

    Looks interesting, we'll have to see how the game play turns out. Doesn't appear to have a starfighter component included, which is disappointing. Limited Heroes is disappointing as well, but at least the "era specific" component of the player base should be happy. Hopefully more maps are planned for the future, otherwise this will get stale VERY quickly. We'll wait until Tuesday and provide additional feedback. Thanks for providing additional content, looking forward to the roadmap to see what else is planned.

    Edit: Looks like Ben confirmed on reddit that Starfighters are definitely not included.

    Glad I'm not the only who was desperately hoping for a Starfighter component. Death Star dlc from Battlefront 1 is still my favorite mode out of both games.

    Kinda lame and pointless w/o it. Just another ground mode.

    Should be fun but man o man, missed opportunity up the wazoo.
  • Clone wars. Again. Yeah.

    This would have been a great way to launch Rogue One content.

    Star Wars was released in 1977. Those fans are 50 years old and gaming. Why only cater to those 90s kids?

    When did the pt become so popular?

    The pt got a worse reception than the st has.

    After everyone saw TLJ.....there's nothing left to like or create that people want, but the Prequel trilogy content.

    Dice won't bring in SWBF 2015 content....which I would love. All SWBF 2015 was original trilogy content.

    There are only two heroes left in Sequel Trilogy to make.....no more maps and only maybe 1 or 2 reinforcement characters. Hux & Poe are really lame and no one cares about them!

    I would have loved to fly over Geonosis shooting at AT-TE's and AAT's with my starfighter helping out the team. You really get to see the beauty of the map when flying around in starfighter.


    If they don't want people shooting at troopers in starfighters....then make then worth 1 or no points for killing them. I won't spend much time flying around and dying wasting my starship to get no points shooting ground units then. I would rather shoot other vehicles anyway.....I mean the separatists need another vehicle or two or to be able to get into Homing Spider droid, or dwarf droids to combat the AT-TE. It's crazy one sided on GA and I can't imagine how Capital Supremacy will run unless they introduce a bunch of bug fixes and a ton of balancing.


    I mean separatists should have gotten emperor too, so that they could balance the power that Anakin has. I mean one more villian isn't going to kill the game play it will probably balance it out, like mention because Anakin is still pretty strong.

  • Oh but it's not the Geonosis we know from GA and HvV guys!!!!

    What a joke one map...

    And if there are AI in this mode then why not add to arcade for the 50% of the player base asking for offline content... oh wait your ran by EA.. nevermind then

    We don't have an infantry and starfighters combined mode?

    Fixed, and no we don't. Not in EA Battlefront 2.
  • Two things I'm mad about, Clone Wars heroes only and only one map. Everything else about this sounds great, and although I shouldn't have been expecting it at all, kind of disappointed there is no space to ground combat. Other than that sounds really good. Love that we're getting a conquest-like non-linear game mode.
  • Sounds great but when are they going to come up with one for other eras?
  • Imagine 1 map with super long games....that's gonna' work whup2do

    The people that have been patient and willing to wait for this have every right to bounce. There better be a response within a Month that more maps are coming... forget the arcade endeavor. This needs to be made right for a massively underwhelming, and dare I say incomplete release.

    Plenty of people want Arcade content too.

  • This sounds so great! I love how it could technically go forever, how awesome!

    But..

    Will this be playable on arcade aswell please? Been waiting for a decent offline mode since launch.

    They should bring it to Arcade.

    Actually I'm confused, other sites are saying it does have an aerial battle phase.

    The good thing about AI is that they can use it to put this mode in the Arcade

    I agree with this and hopes Dice does too.

    It would make for a sweet Arcade addition.

    An arcade gamemode based on conquest was announced to be in development at one point, but Some_Info, a reliable Battlefront 2 leaker, said that it is on-hold because DICE doesn't have enough staff to finish it.

    Hopefully, they will finish it once this is out.

    No it's a multiplayer mode.

    They confirmed this mode for Arcade

    Can we get a link?

  • although this could be fun, just from reading it it does not seem overwhelming yet, as the long wait and "hints" have suggested unfortunately :(

    Only one map, no free decision to switch between ground and ships, no star fighters included, AI instead of opening up to 32 vs 32 real players, combat in the ships is limited to - again - planting something that is a mechanic heavily used in straighter assault...

    I really hope it is more fun playing than reading :(

    __
    Edit:
    - no pictures?
    - any more maps in the works?
    - any more maps planned?
    - any more era planned?

    The good thing about AI is that they can use it to put this mode in the Arcade

    The issue with that is, if you check the Skirmish/Offline Content Thread, that Charlemagne recently stated stat it is a) not a priority and that they are b) not actively working on it soooooooooooooooo no happiness there

    This being released may change that.

  • This idea is great. Hopefully this will be available in Arcade with the mode having A.I. Maybe on Arcade they could raise the amount of A.I that are on the battlefront. Can't wait to play it though.

    They built AI into the mode, they should let us arcade fans have it too. Please Dice.

    Only one map a big bummer. Also no star fighters? Also is there going to be a arcade version? I am not a big fan of PvP due to not having a lot of time to play this game. And I don't like having to quit mid game on my team mates.

    Hopefully, they will answer that in April.

    Adding the Ai and this mode to Arcade would be awesome to us offline gamers. Thank you for the post.

  • Sounds great in all but will how it has been, not listening to the public and only now doing it partially, we will see. Add starfighters on the ground and more maps at least. And after this make conquest how it was in the first 2 original Star Wars Battlefronts. Then you will see EA take off and people will start playing again.
  • Pls this will mean that AI in Arcade is going to be better right?????
  • Never seen a game mode get so much grief, can't please some of the people they have lit said they are starting with geonosis so obvs they are adding more maps to the mix! I can't wait for this mode new reinforcements and the fact I have been calling for this since the launch of the game has me ecstatic because it will be like the old battlefront 2 but in my opinion better! Better late than never roll on the update!!!!

    Looking forward to trying it but really guys... “The Surface of a planet...”.

    You should have just confirmed that it was Geonosis could have prevented the inevitable fallout. :neutral:
