  • I'm thrilled to hear about the arcade changes. They're a bit minor, to be sure, but very very welcome and very necessary. Hope bigger things will be following soon to arcade. I'm also super excited about the Leia skin, but hope it'll be made available to players after the challenge is over because I won't be able to play in that period. I'd spend cash for that.
  • @EA_Charlemagne Will the leia skin be available for purchase with credits and crystals later on?
  • Bravo! Very hyped for this awesome news! Falling in love with the surprise of the Leia’s skin!! On the right way EA- DICE!! Keep going!
  • Thank god Anakin can now blink during an emote… game changer for me this one.
  • Thank you for increasing Vader's attack stamina
  • Ok I know ye said that ye never said ye were working on a anakin clone wars skin but I was really hoping it was a joke. I can't believe we have General Kenobi but not General Skywalker. Can you PLEASE put his skin in the game.
    Thank you

    Papering over the cracks, that’s basically this update in a nutshell. Shocking how you, Dice, are ignoring the majority of feedback and focusing on fu king ‘eye lashes’.

    I’m not shocked anymore. This is commonplace for this team, and they’re choosing to be consistent with this same pattern.

    Reiterating what I said in a different thread, they’re solidifying why I can’t sympathize or feel bad about the mountain of issues that they created. Implementing community suggestions into the game is like a cover up for the many failures they’ve accumulated.

    His stamina has been 10 since last week
  • Nice to see so many bug fixes! :) will we expect this to drop at 10am Stockholm time like we have for most other updates?
  • I feel like this game is in such a good place at the moment. I have been through the lows and lows and its finally good to see players returning, plus new ones and the hype being incredibly high at the moment. This game had one of the worst launches in history but you gotta give credit when credit is due.

  • I like this patch because it has many corrections.

    Thanks for new Leia skin, but only one skin is poor, you could to able launched 2 or 3 together skins and the satisfaction would be much more big.

  • Awesome!!! Can't wait. I'm glad finally Darth Maul is getting a block and it's coming tomorrow!!!

    I like the direction this is going. Although anakins nerf might still not be enough. I suspect GA will remain a no-go zone for me as long as his DMG output remains that high.

    But again, I feel the blood sweat and tears slowly but surely.

    If it's not enough, we'll take another pass. We don't want to over-tune as we have before. Incremental steps are safer and allow for ongoing balancing changes for all heroes.

    Are you guys still considering making health on kill effects standard for all heroes?

    Again...

    Why wasn't he just made to be balanced in the first place? The rest of THIS YEAR'S patches could very well be dedicated to fixing him. Especially if all that is happening is slight nerfs to cooldowns.

    A lot of bugfixes. More content than I expected.

    More steps in the good direction and waiting for a lot more.

    Well done, I must say.

    Can't wait to that ANH Leia's attire.
  • Sounds great, but what about new weapons? Only 4 weapons per class after 1.5 years, cmon DICE!
  • Leia skin is go and all but what about the most iconic character of Star Wars, Luke Skywalker? Is he even going to get a skin at all before the live service ends?
  • Thanks for the new cs map. And thank god for the new Leia skin, IMO we need more original trilogy character skins(ex Luke)

    Yes Luke skins needed
  • If Leia has a new skin I know what that means!!!! I love the recent addition to mention which changes came from the community's input and suggestions in the forums! I also wanted to be a positive voice and say how thankful I am, and have always been, to know that EA /DICE still come back to enhance this game every month. This game has been my most unique multiplayer experience as a result so thank you!
  • All of these updates are Fabulous... an Incredible amount of work Team... from day one. Thank You Very Much
    I'm a huge fan of SW - so, I appreciate every bit...
    Yes, the Gamers keep you honest - but your vision of the SW universe is absolutely Fabulous...
    Favorite update: "Fixed an issue where picking up and firing with a Rocket Launcher would also trigger a melee attack." This was buggn' me - but I wasn't completely trashed out... made me start using the Specialist more
    May The Force Be With You
  • A very interesting change for Boba Fett I thought of would be not only the jetpack Quality of Life/ improvements planned and obviously the ability to zoom in some way, but also a change to either his health on kill star card or the removal of his health on kill card and making this a passive: Bounty Claimed/Bounty Hunter(the name should be something along those lines). With this card/passive Boba Fett, on kill, would gain 5-10 hp(5 if its a passive, 10 if its a star card) on soldier kill, but would also gain 10-15 plus permanent possible health regeneration. Basically, what this means is with this star card/passive Boba on kill would only heal for a little per trooper but would ultimately increase his overall survivability, encouraging high kill streaks in the hopes of better being able to recover from fights. It would also fit his character, a bounty hunter who becomes stronger with the more kills he gets. For heroes the values on kill now (40/60/80/100) would be reduced to 20/30/40/50 or less and the health regeneration increase would be 20/35/50/65, all of these values based on star card level. If it were a passive, it would be 40 on hero kill and 50 permanent health regeneration. This would obviously reset on different lives as Boba Fett, so if you gained 200 health regen and die as Boba Fett, if you played him again that match you would have to restart that climb for higher regeneration.

    At this point, I'm out of ideas. I can release a comprehensive list if anyone thinks it'll help, but I don't know what to do anymore. It's not fun with, or against a half decent Anakin, it just becomes a steamroll, and I think I've explained pretty well why.

    Continue to provide your feedback until they specifically comment that they are no longer accepting community feedback of any kind.

    This is the one thing they haven’t denied us of yet, so take advantage of it while you can. Our options are providing feedback here on the forums, submitting bug reports, reporting technical issues, and just generally remaining active with the BF2 community.

    They repeatedly say that they want to hear from us, so what have you got to lose? I would have lost all sense of hope if each of these resources were removed or closed permanently.
  • Can we PLEASE get some more Clone appearence options? I want to see the old Heavy/Specialist back in the game.
  • Did you guys fix the Y-axis inversion for ground vehicles? I was hoping you knew about it.
  • Can we PLEASE get some more Clone appearence options? I want to see the old Heavy/Specialist back in the game.

    I agree, now the only heavy skin i use is the 501st p2 regardless of map I’m playing except for kashyyyk which is the ranger Platoon p2. And the every specialist p2 skin but the 501st, 212th and the 104th are the only good speaclist skin, and yes I do miss the old specialist skin

  • Cool to get that Leia skin, though I hope it isn't going to be locked off once that event is over, I may not have time to play from 1st to 6th of May. Really hope this means some new Luke skins might be in the pipeline.
  • I love the new content! Is there any chance we will see episode 4 farmboy Luke or a captain Han Solo skin in upcoming updates? Also I was playing Extraction today and was wondering if we will ever get maps from Battlefront 2015? Bespin or sullust?
  • Still waiting on that Palpatine block

    I would agree had I continued to be ignorant of what they’re doing to their own game.

    All you need to do is backtrack on the BF2 roadmaps to the pre-launch year. Then read all the community transmissions and patch notes announcements leading up to this one. They’re readily available here on the forums, on the BF2 website, or searching online for a copy of this info from a third party website.

    I give them credit for consistently breaking the game with each patch/fix or content release, only focusing on a few bugs/issues at a time, and trying to convince the community that they’re actively working hard or making significant progress at fixing all known problems.

    I like the game and im having fun playing it. I do admit some things need fixing like anakin but overall the game is in a good place. Players are returning and the writing is on the wall. Ive been here since launch and stuck with it.

    Maybe you should move on and play another game as by the sounds you will never be happy with this no matter how many things are fixed/introduced?
  • As fun as it will be to see Leia in the White, but where’s Luke Bespin or Endor or Tatooine (Farmer and Jedi Robe) or X-Wing pilot? Just to name a few. OH, and Crait 😉 Darth Maul who still only has one appearance yet I can think of 3 others they can add from EP1 and Clone Wars.

    Luke Farmboy and Bespin would be great, I wonder if there’s a reason they skipped over the Endor? Maul definitely could use one and people would love a battle damaged Vader

  • Sounds good, although I do not understand why you rush out the blocks for Yoda and Maul now if they are not working properly... ?
  • Fantastic! Really looking forward to this update! Excellent work, DICE. :sunglasses:

  • What is the actual release time?

    Obi wan's animations getting sped up? Yea, he did seem a bit methodical. However, I think Grievous' speed needed attention. His sprinting strike just leaves him open forever, having no follow through. Am I supposed to stop, and then start striking the enemy I just snuck up on? It really kills his HvV experience. (Literally)
  • I actually can't believe this. I'm blinded with rage right now. How could you not see the glaring 360 degree murder machine Anakin for what he is, and just killswitch him already. 2 METERS ON PULL!!! SERIOUSLY!! AND NO NERF TO HM AT ALL?!?!?!?! How is this even real life. As it stands, i'm losing hope in ever enjoying a large scale mode again. I loved CS when it came out. I had an absolute blast, up until I got stuck in a 3 hour game where we should clearly have won, but Anakin would nuke the team cause my **** teamates shot him twice in HM. Eventually, all our good players got tired and quit, so I was the only one competent on my team, and we got bodied. I've done that to multiple teams in CS since then, and the disgust in myself has driven me from playing the mode. Anakin as it stands, has the most DPS, the most HP, and the best abilities in the game. If you shoot him 3 times while he's in HM, it auto kills you. Do you know how fast you have to react if he hits the button WHILE you're firing at him? It's inhuman to be able to react to it. You get punished for landing your shots while he bee lines right at you, cause the last 3 shots you fired before stopping and seeing the HM end up killing you. All this and I haven't even gotten to HvV yet. In HvV Anakin single handedly decides games. I let a god awful friend of mine play him for a bit while I tried some other hero's out, we're down 8-1. I get Anakin, and now it's 1-0. It really is that easy. The pull combo used to be Pull, Pasionate Strike, HM, 2 lightsaber swings. Now it will just be Pull, HM, Passionate strike. Oh lord, not those 2 swings, now you might not be able to kill boba before he gets up!!! you still lose upwards of 500 health from one guy using what amounts to a single move. Also, why the hell does Anakin's massive strikes card have no drawbacks, Grevious' does, so why not Anakin. His swing speed is incredibly fast, and now he gets an extra 25 damage (might be 20 I forget) I haven't even gotten to the best part, Retribution! Since Anakin has the most kill power, and the most health (Great decision btw) He usually will outlast his team in a team fight. even if the team loses. So he loses lots of health, and then, since his team lost the fight, he's next in line for target. Do you know what happens when you're the target? You get all your health back silly! But Retribution? That charge stays despite the full health refill. You're outplaying the team again, but Anakin's now taken enough damage, so he hits one button, and you better hope the LS doesn't have a decent blaster hero, cause if they do, your whole team dies. That blaster hero gets free shots on everyone effected wiping the whole god damn team. I'm sure their's more i'm forgetting, and plenty of typos while I type raging out of my mind, so I apologize in advance. I just can't believe DICE doesn't see this for what it is. I've played a lot, and I've nearly exhausted every option I can come up with when it comes to trying to fight Anakin. At this point, I'm out of ideas. I can release a comprehensive list if anyone thinks it'll help, but I don't know what to do anymore. It's not fun with, or against a half decent Anakin, it just becomes a steamroll, and I think I've explained pretty well why.

    I'm just bewildered that they think this broken joke of a character is ok.

    This is part of my regularly played collection, so until I am tired of it, I’ll keep playing. Thanks for the suggestion though.

    I’m sharing this glaring issue to make aware of how this is progressing right now. And my point is they can do far better. If we are all within the commonality of wanting to help them improve on this game, well that’s solely what my comment is for.

    I respect that you think the game is in a good place, though I am not attempting to infer anything about the player base or about it’s popularity.

    I’m sorry my remarks don’t appeal to you, but you can’t prevent me from commenting. I will continue to point out this flaw until it is significantly improved upon, whether anyone agrees or disagrees.
  • Must say I am pleased by this CT

    Not happy about Han's charge and Chewy's slam not breaking block anymore
    The lightside needs to be buffed not nerfed
    This is a clear nerf for the lightside
    Now villain saber users can just stand there and block with far less consequence from Han and Chewy
    Undo this please, and please bring back Rey's dash breaking block too

    U could always block chewies charge slam and for hans shoulder charge before one update quite a while ago u could block it then they made it so it knocks u down. I think its better being unblockable because its pretty easy to avoid or counter
  • Will the new Liea outfit be available after the event to unlock if we can't play in CS? I will be on my honeymoon and would like to be able to unlock it afterwards.
