  • Did saber tracking and stun lock ACTUALLY get even worse than before? If that’s the case then the mode is as good as dead.

    At least Dooku's lunge somewhat feels better.

    I will not stop complaining until DICE update Leia's Hoth skin's sideburns and add some for Rey!!

    That's it. I hope for better tomorrow...

    Yes that’s exactly what I mean. The lock on and lunge distance is ridiculously huge now. Getting hit from 10 ft away smh
  • The lunge is worse, getting killed by anakin swing spammers that are like 5-10ft away. And Im usually blocking/dodging xD

    On the bright side the announcer guy is back and has new lines finally.

    And yet his Duelist ability feels worse! The strikes don't connect at all. Somehow, it's even more bugged and unreliable than before...

    It's always been a bit flaky, unreliable, it's now just broken...

    p.s. anyone played on the new maps yet lol? do they exist?

    I remember when they fixed blocking on the ground, which I was all for fixing, that made combat worse too, and I discovered I was wrong. Shooting on the ground was wrong. Being invulnerable (knockdown) on the ground is perfectly normal for 99% of fighting games out there.

    Find me in HvV, pushing people off of stuff and watching them fall, like a cat.
  • I have no idea whats going on. I had the worst experience in HvV today i've ever had. One frustrating and infuriating game after the other, nearly impossible to enjoy. Enemies blocking forever, no way to land a hit, on the other hand my own block completely unreliable, getting thrown around and killed within half a minute. I really hope it's just some lag/server issues today...

    my thoughts exactly.

    WORST UPDATE EVER!!!! Lightsabers look better but thats it.
    I play this game with 3 other friends, HVV ONLY, 2-3 hours a day every day for the last 2 years
    and you've made it unplayable.
    DEATHS ARE TOO QUICK. Health evaporates faster than you can dash out or block from.
    EVEN MORE VULNERABLE DURING DASH / SWING RADIUS OF SABERS TOO FAR REACHING????!??!?!
    DEFENSE IS NON-EXISTENT. ITS ALL OFFENSE NOW (not a good thing)
    YOU'RE BLOCKING WITH FULL STAMINA, A 2ND PERSON ATTACKS THEY GET RIGHT THROUGH.
    MAKES IT IMPOSSIBLE TO TAKE ON MORE THAN 1 PERSON.
    FACING 2-3? FORGET IT YOURE DEAD EVEN AS AN EXPERT VADER WITH A CARD SET FOR SURVIVAL
    YES, IM SHOUTING.
    This HAS been one of the most well balanced, fun team VS games and game modes of any game ever.
    HOW CAN YOU THINK THIS IS A GOOD IDEA?

    its completely broken beyond anything i could have ever imagined

    This is the worst patch to date for HvV/HS. Just choose a fast spammer and you'll get decent kills. Now I KNOW there is no QA team for these patches. To me it feels like the server netcode just doesn't understand that many swings that fast...so it decides randomly who took the most damage. Dooku's speed is back in Duelist but every 2nd or even 3rd swing just does nothing even though it goes through. There needs to be at hotfix @F8RGE can't wait a month for this!

    The droid started getting annoying after losing so many matches plus the saber locking bugs in the mode.

    I never liked it much to begin with because of saber spam, but now it seems worse with the lock on and bad hit boxes, then many players seem to be in premades. I can bet it makes it a terrible experience for noobs or casuals. It also seems like health goes away in an instant.

  • I literally jus had full 900hp as Vader dodged an incoming Rey and Anakin, got force pulled and my health depleted to zero and I... died? I just had full health. :o

    Not impressed with this update and seriously ready to be done with this game for good. Been waiting and waiting for it to get up to snuff. I only play it for HvV anyway. Not really ever been interested in playing as a peon trooper. The saga is about the heroes and villains... but yeah this game is dumb. More dumb is EA for disrespecting the fact that they literally have THE baton as far as a Star Wars game goes.

    Obi wan's saber tracking is insane , his saber tracked me through objects. Died bc he manage to attack me through a steel pipe and chair in HvV from 5 to 7 ft away.

    You describe the experience I've been having for a long time now. This update hasn't changed anything about that. Everything is out of whack.
  • I went to do some online tests and well, it was a bugfest. Everything said here. Bumping between characters because of rubberbanding, dodge blocking was so unreliable I would do like 6 dodges in a row with Rey because most of them just got cancelled by the game and rubberbanded me back to the place I was. Visually Disabled Block BUG all over the place. Lightsaber block on rough terrain did improve, but it's still unreliable as hell.

    Saber tracking is a nightmare, but felt especially bad against Anakin, he kept hitting me several feet away looking to the other side. It was never that bad, I understand lag causes such things, but it was never that drastic.

    I played yesterday, I hadn't played for a long time, but the game felt normal. Geonosis felt a bit bumpy, but other then that everything seemed as usual. Now the game is a big mess. I hope it's a server issue due to the deployment of a new patch, this isn't uncommon on the history of this game.
    Tired of BUGs?

    Well, they'll still exist.

    Players in game complaining of Massive rubber banding and Lag, counted 2-3 seconds from starting an action to it actually doing it, by that time the opposing person was gone and i had died, characters hardly moving (jumping forget it). Regular messaages of slow internet affecting game actually red warnings and 1-2 bars (this is not my internet or hardware caausing aan issue its garbage, this is a server issue).

    Stamina drain the worst ever.
    Blasters now devastating sabre players due to the lag.

    More bugs in this game than live in a vagrants vest.

    I thought that the dash problem was because of my connection, now I see other's have rubberbanding

    It's a nightmare. The devs have made a hidden change to i-frames around dodging and rolling, meaning that you now take damage from attacks that you dodged more than quickly enough. Anakin killed me from 20ft away yesterday on Takodana, and he was on the other side of a tree!

    This change has also buffed the Light Side, because their strikes are much faster than the villains and are therefore next to impossible to dodge now that the dodge itself has been nerfed. Word of advice: do not pick Dooku. Ever. Besides his useless Duelist ability, his dodges never evade strikes from Luke, Anakin, Rey or Obi-Wan.

    INPUT LAG...

    Why DICE?

    I'm done with this trash mode, the only reason I was still playing.
  • Here's the culprit:

    uk7mcr20s9we.png

    They imply a Saber Hit Detection Improvement causes issues and may let you be damaged when you dodge. Funny that this Saber Hit Detection Improvement is nowhere to be found on patch notes by itself, like a Qol improvement. It only appears right at the end within a known issue.

    If this isn't a stealth change that went horribly wrong that they had to explain its issue on the bottom of the patch notes, I don't know what it is. It's time they start making these patch notes seriously. It can't stay like it is now, not sharing all changes and stating changes that didn't happen at all.
