No Match for a Good Blaster

DICE thinks we've had enough heroes for a while (thank god)

Prev1
This gives me hopes for this game, really hoping we get Bothan spies, then focus should be on maps and blasters imo

  • New reinforcements:

    OT - Bothan spies, Rebel honor guard, Storm commandos, Emperor royal guard

    ST - Bothan spies, resistance honor guard, first order tie pilot, riot baton trooper

    PT - Magnaguard, senate guard

    the dream :love:

    Wouldn't have minded Jyn / Cassian or Krennic, but yes. Hero overrepresentation should take a step back in favour of maps, weapon and reinforcements for now, methinks.

    Yeah after we get reinforcements and a lot of maps, the next set of heroes should definitely be Krennic and Jyn

    Dark side really needs a support villain in the level of yoda.

    Thank the Lord.

    You mean thank the Force.

    Same differences though. :)
  • Im glad they think of adding more reinforcements. OT and ST need another enforcer class just like the PT.

    Heroes are born on the battlefront... especially if you play the objective.

    No way, they need to fill out the infiltrator for the other eras aswell, that should come ahead of any new clone wars content.

    I talk a lot about heroes but I'm glad to see them focus elsewhere for now.

    Now we just need:
    • More Maps in general.
    • More maps for CS (Naboo?)
    • Infiltrators for a least one other era besides CW.
    • A new light side enforcer besides the Wookiee.
    • More guns.
    • Bug Fixes.
    • Luke, Maul, Vader, Palpatine, Boba, and Finn skins please.

    Yes! Enough with the heroes for a while.
  • He means imo with "IMHO"?

    in my honest opinion

    Actually mean "in my humble opinion" usually
  • Ugh, looks like I won't be playing BF2 much these next several months then. I primarily play HvV, so new heroes/villains are what I want most. HvV is going to get boring fast now, especially with how OP Anakin is. I already took 1 long break from July last year until November due to a lack of new heroes.

    While HvV is one of my 'preferred' modes (balancing and bugs aside), there is more to this game than HvV. More maps and infantry content will be really nice for a lot of people.
  • New reinforcements:

    OT - Bothan spies, Rebel honor guard, Storm commandos, Emperor royal guard

    ST - Bothan spies, resistance honor guard, first order tie pilot, riot baton trooper

    PT - Magnaguard, senate guard

    Not very good news, because I play mainly Heroes vs Villains. Somehow randomize heroes for other modes or make some kind of queue for heroes and game should tell when hero is available if you like to play as hero. I get heroes so rarely in other modes, because I don't want to wait in the lobby, that's so cheap tactics.

    That's fine for them, I'm happy for them. But I can only speak for myself, and I basically only play the infantry modes when there is a daily challenge for them or if there is a new reinforcement for me to level. Star Wars was never about the infantry for me, I didn't watch the movies to watch nameless, often faceless, infantry men kill each other, I watched the movies for the heroes and villains. The Clone Wars show was the first piece of Star Wars media that ever made me care about the infantry, because the Clones were featured as main characters and had their own unique personalities (Fives, Echo, Cody, Rex, etc.).

    I play Battlefront for the heroes and it is getting harder and harder to do that. We have people voting against having 4 heroes per team in CS on the recent official poll, which will make it harder to play heroes there. It's already hard to get to play a hero in GA due to hero limitations, and people are against heroes unleashed being made permanent. So I mainly play HvV to get my hero fix, and the only content that keeps HvV from getting stale is new heroes, new maps don't work nearly as well for preventing staleness when there is no map voting, leaving you with only a 1/16 chance of getting a certain map in HvV currently, which will only get lower with each new map added. And now I find out, after months of teases from DICE and datamining relating to new heroes like Ahsoka, Ventress, Rex, Cody, and Padme, that they will be focusing on non-hero content for the foreseeable future. It is disheartening for me to say the least.

    The simple fact of the matter is that the DLC team shouldn't be so small that they can only focus on one area of the game at a time. EA needs to allocate more devs to the BF2 DLC team, so that we can have dedicated sub-teams for maps, heroes, skins, reinforcements, ground vehicles, starfighters, and weapons.

    I don't mind if we don't get anymore heroes we do have alot now. Maps in my opinion should be the main focus GA and capital supremacy should both get new maps added
  • I'm not so sure Bothan spies are feasible, simply because we don't have a canonical appearance for them. Maybe a Dressellian Commando would work better for the Rebel Alliance infiltrator class.

    Same i didnt play from Feb 2018 until Feb 2019, looks likes its time to quit again. ive had enough of BF 1 with the 3 heroes of each side, looks like BF2 is a let down as well

    That's true, since the new canon takeover they have specifically not addressed Bothans or of they will even look the same. There was a creature on the Canto Bite casino set in TLJ that looked very much like our old school Bothan...when fans asked Pablo Hidalgo he said "Nope...not a Bothan. And we're not even sure they look like that any more. "

    I've had enough of this game. My gaming will no longer have heroes because the game is now deleted from my console. ***** EA, ***** Dice. ***** heroes. ***** THE GOD DAMN CLOWN WARS.

    When they go back to Heroes they need to focus of PT blaster based Heroes. If DICE ever decides to make maps era specific PT is all lightsaber Heroes outside Bossk and Chewbacca.

    Give us:
    - Padme
    - Cad Bane
    - Typho or Jar Jar Binks
    - Aurra Sing or Cato Parasitti

  • Bug/glitch fixes and new CS/GA maps should be a priority now. New heroes can wait
  • Happy about this, I think they need to prioritize new planets over heroes. Characters will only be fun for so long if we play as them in the same few locations over and over again.
  • This gives me hopes for this game, really hoping we get Bothan spies, then focus should be on maps and blasters imo

    I just read that the screenshot was taken out of context, apparently they were talking about the era locked heroes in Capital Supremacy during the livestream when Dennis posted that. Dennis was referring to there being enough heroes per era for having era locked heroes now in Capital Supremacy, but was implying that OT and ST will still need Infiltrator class reinforcements and some new ground vehicles before CS can come to OT and ST. So he was not saying that DICE isn't making more heroes in the near future. Thank God for that. Honestly I thought something was fishy, DICE was still posting hints about new heroes only about 2 weeks ago, lol.

    I don't think you own SWBF2 then. As it is, almost every mode is broken with a bug infestation of biblical proportions. It may as well rain frogs on every map. 2 new maps needed are **** and Gomorrah.

    why are you here then? just to be a spoon? go to another forum if you're just going to be an all time hater

    I will be ditching this forum later tonight. The game was sent to where it belongs, the junkyard.

    I even smashed up SWBF 2015 and threw it in the garbage. It's not worth recycling. I'm done with EA/DICE. The Swedish Meatballs destroyed what used to be a great game.

    Useless Derps....

    Apparently it is real, but was taken out of context. He was saying that there are enough heroes per era now for era-locked heroes in CS, but that they need more OT and ST reinforcements before they can add CS for those eras.
