  • Close enough!
  • I'd like to see a Ground-Phase only weekend. Try that out sometime. If it's a success, then maybe consider adding the CS interiors to strike as they play almost identical to that. Maybe also limit to 1 hero on the ground each side. Call it a Battlefront Classic weekend. I'd really love to just have a normal conquest mode on the ground. Think about it!

    Thx

    Uh, aren't Blast and Strike infantry only game modes? And, uh, Extraction? And, uh, Ewok Hunt?
    Those all have lots of reinforcements. They also received no support in nearly a year.

    Just as Jenga said. Some of us only consider the base 4 classes as infantry. It’s a much debated thing, many disagree with this. We ask for a mode with only those 4 classes, troopers vs ewoks on a single map obviously doesn’t qualify and is not what we are looking for

    Also,uh, you think, uh, I missed the modes you, uh, listed?

    This will make a difference to Starkiller, Hoth and Tatooine play.

    This won’t make a difference to Hero spam in GA or indeed the blight of Blast that is Reinforcement spam.

    And it will make 0 difference in Death Star II (I think that is the only map without vehicles in any phase).

    You should see a doctor with that cold.

    I think I remember you posting on one of the trooper threads, I’m way too lazy to look it up. So there’s no point in going through the ordeal of explaining it again here. I would refer you to those threads if you want to discuss this

    Ewok hunt is pretty much dead (or at least for me) , blast, strike and extraction have reinforcements and arcade... well, it’s arcade

    Thank you.

    Arcade, Ewok hunt, pah...

    The comment stands:

    Infantry only game mode
    @skincarver I am also lazy. And I don’t care enough to see what you have to say. I’m commenting on a thread from an EA representative about no vehicles. If you want a mode with the 4 basic classes only that’s fine, if you gather a majority of the community’s support and the developers listen. I feel like the reinforcements are so close to being a basic trooper that it is basically the same gameplay. The Wookiee and flametrooper differ slightly from the troopers because of the way in which their guns cause damage but the death trooper and supe battle droid are quite similar to troopers.

    Because the health difference between reinforcements and normal classes is not important, right? Or the fact that all Enforcers have a default ability that heals them. The people that want infantry only, want just a "fair" playground with no tiered units with "unfair" advantages in a large-scale mode with objective gameplay. The closest thing is Strike, which has the same maps it had on release, still has reinforcements and uses small cropped versions of the maps with 1 or 2 objectives.
    May your heart be your guiding key.

    And don't get me started on how asinine EWeb gun placements are in BF2017 maps.... Only Kashyyyk has a few that make some sense.... .

    The makers of BF2015 also had the common sense to spawn players away from enemy troops. BF2017 developers have yet to even realize this is a serious problem with their game design.

    Please remove heroes as well, at least for such short GA event. Some of my friends who self-proclaimed GA dominators, when I invite them to play private blast matches, they don’t even make it top 4. Basically, they specialized into farming BP points as officer class as quick as possible, get a hero and them complete 150 kills in most GA matches, however in infantry only modes like Blast or extraction, they lack Enough skill to dominate, same for HvV, threy never make it 1st place. They excel as killing infantry troops as Heroes or villains in GA. Dissappointing. We need a GA or CS of pure infantry units with or without reinforcements, whatever floats your boat!

    That’s probably most of the guys here. Everyone loves that Officer cheese to the hero first 😂😂. But it’s viable strategy they’ll say, just the easy way out 🤷🏻‍♂️

    No ships is a plus, gonna have to see how no ground vehicles is. Likely for a better tattoine at least.

  • Why does Obi Wan Kenobi and Darth Maul 200 battle points? Is this a glitch.

    Too soon 😢
  • Now get rid of the Heroes too

    Officers would rule the battlefront if this was an event.
    Add more Extraction and SA maps please!

    What the ROADMAP should look like for 2019/2020:
    “Season” 4: Clone Wars Revival
    “Season” 5: Episode IX
    “Season” 6: Rogue One

    If we got rid of Heroes, a majority of my deaths would likely be to the NT-242s, vanguards, and aerials of the opposition. Not to their Officers... did you seriously suggest Officers would rule the day---or were you just talking about BPs?

    No vehicles huh? There are still spaceships flying around starkiller base. They can't even make actual changes to the game, just adjust battlepoints. Pathetic.

    200 BP for Kenobi or Maul????

    So far this is the lamest idea ever. Heroes/villains/aerials are having the times of their lives.

    Lame.

  • Heroes will be even more OP since there aren't any vehicles to counter them.
