  • The good news is we can now close the distance with maul in hvv and not get melted by lando leia han
  • Why. The Hell. Is There. An AT-RT NERF!!!

    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.

    Maybe it is time to look at Vader?? When you will buff his force choke against infantry? @EA_Charlemagne
  • Glad to hear the focus on Bug fixes.

  • No fix for the Chat being covered by the overlay on the post death screen? :'(

    AT-AT targeting and orbital strike still need looking at please. Preferably recreate the BF2015 controls.
  • 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.

    You should probably go play another game..... this one seems to be very detrimental to your health. I'm worried you might have a stroke if you continue playing
  • I appreciate the new ground map, but you could have at least changed the capture points on the ships... or something to make that phase different. Half of the mode is exactly the same as playing Geonosis. When games can take over an hour, some variety would be nice

    Great update!

  • Would have loved to use starfighters in the new c.s map other than that, cant wait to try. Also, lurve the Leia skin.
  • While Obi Mind tricked, Maul can not block.

  • Loving that some of the CS issues were resolved. Loving the block for Darth Maul and Yoda.

    I must admit after all this time I still have a lot of trouble trying to get split screen locally to work and would love a online private match between friends, can this be looked into?
  • Why an AT-RT nerf?! It's already the weakest Armor-class vehicle in the game!
  • While Obi Mind tricked, Maul can not block.

    Isn't that how Obi-Wan's mind trick works? Inability to block?

    no, disables only abilities and dodge. Block and jump should work
  • I've never had as much fun as I had recently playing through the single-player experience. Thanks for making resurrection and concluding the story. I've yet to dove into the multiplayer but I'm really looking forward to it.

    Keep up the good work!
  • Wow! so many fixes. I hope Maul and Yoda's block get fixed soon but one thing that needs to change for maul, can we please get a rework of his lightsaber throw, maybe something along the lines of how Darth Vader is. Maul's lightsaber throw is so unreliable that honestly half the time it just isn't worth using. can this please be looked at becuse it would help bring maul into a more balanced spot with some of the other heroes.
  • This is great. thank you! Will there ever be any adjustments to blasters to make them feel more rewarding to use and balanced? Like Battlefront 2015?
  • Have not played it yet, but this looks like a very sexy update. Thank you for adding Yoda block! Among all the other things

  • I'll start by saying i'm glad this much attention is being given to the game this late in release. I think you guys are doing an amazing job.

    It also was and still is one of my favorite games out there but here we go..

    If Anakin has 4 abilities why not counter this with a dark side hero? Vader is still "the chosen one". I don't believe in constant nerfs and think its much better received to buff rather than try to unwrite code to nerf.

    I don't play GA much anymore but have noticed a leveled up Anakin is always slaughtering whole platoons of troopers deep into the spawn zone. A fix might be to set up a boundary for heroes. I also like the idea of a fallback boundary to keep players from hogging a hero for a whole match without advancing on the objective or helping the team. I don't pretend to be smart enough to fix the problem but I think it could help.

    As far as nerfing him further I don't think its needed but could offer a weakness in GA. A specialist with the dart gun could really do some serious damage in the past but it's been nerfed out too(maybe a range dependent ratio to damage or limit it to close in giving the hero the chance to kill you first). I find myself constantly trying to stop Anakin vs playing the objective because that helps the team more than anything. Even as a heavy, shield equipped, and guns blazing i'm unable to do anything.


    People complaining that Dice isn't working on what you want and fixing small bugs.. How would you know what they are working on? If it takes a couple hours to fix a small glitch why not fix it..? I'm sure devs are working weeks on other stuff.


    One can only imagine how much code is written into this game and like the butterfly effect one wrong move has blowback. Your booger eating complainers know about the square root of jack..

  • I see a bunch of people claiming Anakin is really overpowered but I strongly disagree. Try playing him a few times and you'll notice his weaknesses, although I do agree retribution is scuffed, otherwise he's all good IMO
  • Great update! Love Leia’s Princess Of Alderaan appearance, could this mean hope for Luke and Han too?
  • am i the only one thinking this capital supremacy is a huge letdown ? i mean i was expecting a hybrid mode between assault and space battles (kinda like what we see in the start of EP 3 with obi wan and anakin saving palpatine). This is just a never ending grindfest as it is.

    Then something isn't right because when I get hit by Obi-Wan's mind trick I can't block. Lovely. =(
  • @EA_Charlemagne thank you so much. So excited for this content drop. Looks awesome. So glad for Yoda and Darth Maul blocks, once again, adds a different element to the game. Thank you for all the hard work from the team on these, super excited. I love how you guys respond to community feedback.

    I find the best use of that game mode is 2XP or 3XP because then you rank up stuff like crazy but otherwise it's just a longer version of GA and honestly a time-waster.

    I like the way you think about Vader. At the end of the day, it was Vader who used this retribution power when he found out his wife was dead. How is it Anakin has it and Vader doesn't? This would maintain balance of the force = Give Retribution to Vader. Better yet, just remove retribution entirely. That would fix this game.
  • Thanks for the Arcade tweaks.
    I am the same user as Elimelech401, that account was not tied to the game. I am hoping for more Skirmish with split screen and hero AI.
  • Dice you are literally brainless!!! This update sucks!!! Another Leia skin!? *****! Can we finally get a Luke skin that isn’t recycled from BF1? Why do you ***** offs literally hate Luke? He is so screwed over, worst hero at Launch, abilities nerfed against hero’s, no good skins. Anakin has a repulse with DR that ACTUALLY WORKS.... Also you market him as being “Fast” but his base speed is slow AF! His stat cards and max health Regen are a joke. STOP IGNORING LUKE ALREADY DICE FFS! You literally made Yoda and Maul OP on GA. Yoda was already strong and did not need a buff!!! Maul was a little weak against hero’s but with a block and High Regen with great star cards he is going to be OP maybe you ***** should have thought about fixing his saber throw or giving him a block but lowering his high Regen and actually do it instead of failing like last time. What’s next dice? Are you ***** going to Buff Vader and the Emperor and add another Lando skin.... I complain about a lot of things you’ve done and it comes honest but I always played anyway. this will be the first month I take a break from BF2 thank god for MK11! BF2 is an amazing game but could have been the best if decisions were more thought out and your favorite hero’s weren’t constantly Neglected, come on Dice stop forgetting Luke and Han. Disney has done enough to them already....

    I’m still not seeing stamina replenish when just in block? I thought this was fixed?
  • Oustanding job guys! And I love that you made some changes specifically per community request!
    But the best thing...
    Arcade improvements. Now that the better AI is in there, all we need is an offline large scale mode!

    Keep up the good work.

    Hopefully the AI tweaks mean I can finally do "Hope cannot save them" on 3 star and unlock Beardy Solo....
    And you do need to pay to play online multiplayer on Xbox.
    You need Xbox Live Gold which used to be £40 a year, but is going up to £50 a year

    That was the only one I could never do either, until I found this video. I don't know if the technique in the video will work with the new AI changes, but it definitely worked back in February, which is when I finally unlocked the Han Solo skin.

    This is the video:

  • It's ok so far. Need more jedi & Seperatist generals or special units, like Bounty Hunters. Why is Assaj Ventriss not on this game yet? Maybe a special unit to represent each battlefield. Like Royal guard & Gungan warriors for Naboo. A jawa with blast cannon for Rebs & Bounty hunter for Emps. Gangsters for Jabba's palace. Must add more battlefields, like Florum, Felusha, Ryloth & Crystophus.

    He has plenty of offensive weapons and his vertical throw shouldn't hit like vaders(why would it?)

    Now that he has a block I bet he's the next one people want buffed.. :(

    Man I love the update. But there’s one more thing. In Arcade, can we get a skin changeout system (Especially for Clone Skins) just like in Galactic Assault, CS, and etc? It would be a great addition to Arcade mode so players do not need to leave the game constantly just to change their skins over and over again. But great work on this update and I love it overall on the new balances and especially the map.

    DICE, here's how to fix Anakin, so all you have to do is input the numbers:

    Health: 750

    Heroic Might: Max range 15 meters. Anakin's damage reduction nerfed to 50%.

    Retribution: Max range 15 meters. Max damage 225.

    I hope thats not how it works

    Me too, the absence of limited time content is one of the many things I think this game does better than Overwatch.

    THANK YOU awesome.
    - Maul & Yoda changes are very good. Maul is now really fun to play and is now the Sith he was meant to be. Also very much needed buff for the droid army. Yoda now can stand in HVV and can defend against commando droids. This is both also very good. Had a good run with Yoda. Still noit easy against ls-villains but that's a good thing.
    - Kashyyyk for CS looks very very good and is fun ti play. I like it even more than Geonosis because of more cover. Awesome that you put it out as a surprise.
    - Anakin nerf is right direction. THANK YOU ! (Though I still think he needs further nerfs played some HVV he still seems to dominate by far) (btw is he 4.000 on Death Star now ?).
    - Arcade mode changes are very good
    - ion shoot / melee bug fixed is very welcome!
    - Commando Droids vs Arctroopers ... CDs could need a buff ... more gun power or faster recharge of thermal vision ? Or faster regen as they need to get close and are therefore in a bug disadvantage.

    All other minor changes are also good.

    In conclusion: one of the best patches so far!
  • How does one block with Yoda? I played Arcade with Maul and figure it out, but couldnt get Yodas to work?

  • @EA_Charlemagne Will y'all change HvV from the target system anytime soon??
    More &more lately its become a nuisance chasing fools like its hide & seek instead of a Deathmatch!
    Also is it possible to add Lightsabers only mode for HvV? That would be great! Maybe weekend events for now? Thx y'all
  • How does one block with Yoda? I played Arcade with Maul and figure it out, but couldnt get Yodas to work?

    I think Yoda's new block only works against other sabers, and the old block is used for everything else. I could be wrong, haven't gotten a chance to try it yet.
  • The best suggestion: Fix the lag once and for all !!!

  • Dear EA/DICE or whoever works on Battlefront 2, a lot of us really want Capital Supremacy for Arcade and full maps as well (they don't have to be objective based like in multiplayer just bigger and allows vehicles will do) another Arcade improvement would be AI heroes and reinforcements. As my favorite Star Wars character it would be amazing to have Ahsoka Tano added! If she is added I would fully expect her Mandalore and Padawan outfits (probably not her original one though considering she didn't have her second saber then) but it would be AMAZING if she had another skin of being FULCRUM! All in all no matter whom you add to the game it won't be playable to offline players without bigger standard maps and CS for variety.

    Sincerely,
    The Offline Community.
