    Shameful. We must not let this leave the front page again, It's one of the most important threads out there.

    I'm about ready to give up and abandon the Battlefront series. Ben is uninterested in addressing our concerns. What's the point in sticking around when he continues ignoring us? They're either too lazy or too prideful to fix their mistakes now. Either way, DICE doesn't care about our concerns. This thread was created nearly a year ago.

    What the developers did to us is a disgrace. They replaced two of the most popular game modes in favor of a half-baked replacement in Strike. Strike can't match Cargo or DZ's replayability. What's more, the devs eliminated infantry-only play altogether. DICE doesn't pay attention to Strike either. It's had the same maps since launch. The game mode was riddled with bugs too.

    Cargo was my favorite mode in BF2015, and I was really let down when it was not in this game. Ben has repeatedly told us that his silence is because he has nothing to say on the topic. Him not having anything to say on this topic just means DICE is not even considering adding real Cargo. I'd say don't take it so personally.

    There are lot of people that play this game, and they all want DICE to prioritize different things. Last March I really wanted Obi Won and Grevious, and I now that they are here I don't really care about them. I realized heroes don't add much replay value to the game the way maps and modes do. The way have drip fed clone skins is honestly pretty terrible, but it is what it is. Best thing to do is just realize they mostly abandoned this game after their loot box casino was removed. Although I didn't like reading it, I appreciated that Ben told us they have nothing planned for Extraction.

    I think this is very important and I hope more people realize this for the next game. Sure we all want every character from Star Wars but if the options are characters that we can play for a short period of time if someone else doesn’t select them first or fleshed out modes with updates (not events that limit content) and base unit love I will gladly hope they don’t waste resources on Hero’s/Villains. I didn’t buy the game to collect em all like Pokémon.

  • As much as I want 2 Flag/ “Capture the Flag” (Cargo) back I want the new game mode even more. I am hanging around.

    Any word on tweaking JPC into an infantry only Cargo mode? It would be a gigantic success. The mode would both bring back and keep players playing for a long time to come. I promise.

    They'll never add it. They're too prideful in their failure of replacing DZ and Cargo with Strike

  • Some of these BF15 Cargo matches were back-and-forth tonight. Definitely got my heart rate going above where it should be.

    It's so good man. I just stopped playing after a very long session. Finally getting my burst and aim back where they need to be. Map movement and awareness too.

    Well from what I have read from them I do not think that we are getting Cargo Online or Offline any time soon. But hey...now that they are talking a lot more and answering questions bluntly, ask on some social media, maybe they will answer back. :)

    Agree, I don’t think we’re getting Cargo/DZ or any competitive mode, and that’s the reason I’m ready for a BF3 ASAP, just hope it goes back to the BF15 formula and dumps this extreme casual thing they have going now.

    Just a heads up on private matches in case anyone missed the other thread. The part about core players and how other titles don’t have them is interesting.

    yeah it's a nice gun, haha its just too bad its one of the main metas. Man I've only been playing cargo pretty much for the last month. It's been fun. If you guys would like I'll post a few more good videos here.

    I didn't expect to see the old bring cargo back thread have posts on it. That's kind of nice, I wish we had original trooper only cargo on the second game.

    when they say core players, do they mean players like us who love original cargo?

  • Somebody ask him about Cargo in that Discord. Can’t be difficult for them to implement by tweaking JPC.

    yes somebody please ask about it in that discord or other social media. I imagine it would take some time to change JPC to original cargo, but bucksaw has a point, they've already made the first step!

    Clearly they’re out to attract the most casual players possible and seem out of touch with anything that makes big games,....., big imo. As to the most big titles don’t have private matches quote, I guess these guys missed the memo because most all have private’s and/or competitive modes or both; Cod, Gears, Halo, Overwatch, Fortnite, Rainbow6(ranked matches), Battlefront 15, CSGO, their very own battlefield series to name a few.

    The fact we get lame modes over modes that work is amazing to me. We get failed modes like strike, E.hunt, JpCargo, over clearly wanted and asked for modes like classic cargo, dropzone, droid run,,sabotage, and extraction done right as it was in 15.

    And being extraction wasn’t a part of bf2 it doesn’t count, also it’s a cheaper feeling 2nd tier extraction add on, though it’s still better than the other infantry small modes imo. It would be interesting to see who’s making these decisions and what demographic they’re trying to attract.

    I would definitely want to see what demographic they're trying to attract, in their own words. As far as we go we could say they're just attracting the casual star wars fans who want mostly clone wars and heroes.

  • The fact the first 5 or 6 pages of this forum is swamped with Anakin threads is comical, it’s always about the hero horders.

  • Well Duh a small minority want private matches. ...The point is that private matches help keep the public games less impacted by clans, hard core 'OP' players and helps balance. It also gives more competitive and fun time players a good environment

    Are there plans for any mode with a level playing field for infantry? Even if you have to modify existing ones like blast?

    This is a great question. I would love to know the answer.

    Oh wait, I already know the answer!

    Nothing is planned before Ahsoka and 16 more Clone Skins are completed...
  • This game is so dead.. I’m so glad i left the game 1 year ago, and didn’t stick around forcing myself to play it while waiting for cargo, dz, private matches etc. Sort your priorities out or no one is buying bf3.

    Aw, that's disappointing. It would have been well received. That mode was so much fun.
  • We can always follow the directions of this game and do the same

    Confirmation of not returning...disappointing, but not surprising in the slightest. Appreciate finally getting an official answer.

    To sum up this game for me, myself, and I...
    • We've now been officially told my favorite mode from '15 isn't coming back.
    • My favorite mode in the current game, Extraction, confirmed not getting any additional maps.
    • Current game became stale quite a while back due to lack of content that provides true variety and increases my desire to replay...maps & weapons.
    • New game mode, while enjoyable, drops with only 1 map...that I became bored of after 3 days playing it to level up the Infiltrator. No solid information provided as to how many and how often it will get additional maps, not to mention it's locked to 1 era.
    • Aside from aforementioned game mode, the overwhelming majority of development focus has been on: skins for almost exclusively 1 era out of 3, new heroes, & skins for new heroes...even though existing heroes have a ton of skin options available. (The the most hardcore of cosmetic junkies at this point have begun to admit that these don't do anything to keep them playing/coming back.)
    • 1 new reinforcement...which is fun to play, but thanks to being limited to 1 era also became stale quickly while level to max and finishing all milestones on the 1 map new game mode.

    Add all these up, and I'm now at the following conclusion...

    There are only 2 reasons I will play this game going forward. #1, some friends invite me to squad up and get in a few rounds. I don't foresee me feeling the urge to do this more than once a week, and probably not more than every other week. #2, new content drops that interests me enough to maybe, possibly, make time to check it out. Even with being at 100% on the game, I'm not sure that dropping a couple of heroes will entice me to put in the time/effort to re-obtain that status (without some new maps or weapons).

    While visually less stellar, I can say with 1,000,000% certainty that I will be dedicating more solo gaming time to BF'15 Cargo, or finding another game to play while I await Fallen Order. BF'17 has been 85%+ of my gaming time. It will now find its way into the 15% category.
    Yes, play! Yes, a gamer's strength flows from adjustment. But beware of the nerf side...not adapting your tactics, stubbornness, wanting the game catered to you; the nerf side of gaming are they. Easily they flow, quick to join you in a death & respawn. If once you start down the nerf path, forever will it dominate your destiny, consume you it will, as it did many an apprentice.
  • What a joke. Joke game.

    I stopped around November when I saw the December roadmap. I knew then and there Dices gameplan was to double down on hero units to get people excited. I played the new mode once to try it out but it really just seemed like GA with cutscenes and new objectives. Haven’t bothered again since they upped the hero’s.

    Anyone developing this game who actually read feedback from the last game could have known Jetpack Cargo was destined for failure and was a terrible use of resources.

    For the people holding out hope that Fallen Order will be a savior, as someone who is still holding out hope on Anthem I see a lot of similarities between Anthem and this game. The lackluster “events”, getting components on Javelins your not using (see BF2 progression), a garbage vanity store with barely anything in it for a “live service” game so hard to blame “has to be approved and cannon” as a reason for lackluster appearances.
    They even list bug fixes as part of their “live service”.

    I hope Fallen Order doesn’t recycle the same mistakes and has the success Apex Legends has EA wise.

    Extraction isn't getting any new maps, either? Where was this confirmed? If it's true, then that's extremely disappointing. This game needs maps more than anything, in addition to blasters.

    Wow. Not adding something you had in the last game and have in-part in this game, that's such a bummer. HOW difficult could it be, I'd love for some modder to make it for the heck of it, since I know it can be done.
