    That’s Vader, he’s next level not the standard scrub Jedi, apparently he doesn’t need lightsabers to block,... and Obi Wan defies the highground vs Maul yet Anakin with all that power can’t. Shoulda used Nick Gillard's original idea for the ending imo, made a lot more sense.

    So they aren’t bugs but a feature

    Arrogance is blinding 😉

    Vader has some serious blaster burn in his hand I bet 😂
  • Also don’t forget about the range of his force choke.

    Yeah, I mean, we can always be surprised at what Vader does with the Force. Except lightning, though, since his arms are robotic now.

    If you removed heroes entirely from this game it would still be a Battlefront game. You’d only lose two very small modes and the truly game damaging bugs would virtually disappear with them.

    If you removed troopers from this game it wouldn’t resemble a Battlefront game in any way, shape, or form. You would only have two very small, playable modes and the bugs would affect virtually 100% of every minute of gameplay.

    Just an observation.
    If you removed heroes entirely, it would be one of the most boring Battlefront games.

    If you suck at infantry play I bet it would.
    Nah that doesn't matter, heroes distinguish Battlefront from the likes of Battlefield and Call of Duty.

    Because the only way for Battlefront to stand out from Battlefield and COD is to have heroes /s. I remember OG battlefront which didn't feature any heroes being a complete carbon copy of Battlefield /s.

    Also why is Relmets banned?

    Conditions for troopers only did get worse as time went by, hardly any heroplayer will get this.

    This was posted on January, around the time count dooku was going to be added
  • The way I see it saber lords have had close to all the content to the point this game is close to ruined imo. There’s hardly any balance, bugs are everywhere, gameplay has never been great imo, and there’s little to no skillgap.

    Currently the game is a hero/reinforcements game geared more for casual weekend gamers that like something Starwars and that’s fine, but they should give the other half something. The best thing infantry got was a port of a bf15 mode with 1 map, the other being ported.

    Personally I think many were expecting more of a shooter type game that was a little more skillbased, or maybe a continuation of bf15. Weapons, infantry, private matches, stats, and small gamemodes other than HvV have been ignored and we still haven’t got that trooper event. Add cargo/dropzone along with turning point and watch GA die imo.

    That’s it. The large modes would die and leave heroplayers farming bots.
    We cannot let that happen.

    They won’t die if the majority likes and wants a predominantly hero based mode like HU/GA. I don’t get why this team hasn’t offered some type of trooper mode and continues to focus on heroes only, maybe they think that’s the only way they can sell this game, idk.

    Again though, the only reason GA or HvV would suffer is because a true majority would rather modes like I’m suggesting, Modes like turning point, cargo/dz, or a mode like WA/Supremacy with limited heroes would be great imo and make the game a lot more replayable. Also if the PB is as big as they claim it shouldn’t be a problem.

    I cannot understand why this game didn’t have a trooper mode (without tiered units) at launch, or one wasn’t introduced in the past ~2 years. If the pb is so healthy then seriously, what harm could be done by adding one trooper mode other than attracting more players?

    I’d prefer any of the modes you suggested to the ones we have today. As long as it would be (predominantly) infantry based I would happily welcome any mode Dice would add, but yeah...

    I bought this game only for the infantry aspect, sadly we will have nothing added for over two years despite being promised (weapons).

    The base 4 classes are in need of attention and content; a focused feedback for troopers would have been nice. I don’t understand why no efforts have been made so far.

    No they aren’t, the universe and it’s stories are. And my goodness are there a lot of stories that don’t include said “heroes”

    And let’s be honest. Some characters, like Bossk for example, are really undeserving of the title

    Because we know that heroes have more issues than Troopers right now.

    We could always go back to Launch status when heroes didn't have as many issues, and before Lightsabers became overrepresented in a B A T T L E F R O N T title for whatever reason.

    I mean, if we exclusively (sure feels that way at this point) keep listening and catering to the Baloney crowd, then it's hardly a surprise there'd be issues when already playtesting is practically non-existent.

    Any ETA on when the heroes will, at long last, start taking a back seat and we'll move back to what the title is about? Any at all?

    Agreed.
    Good to see you‘re posting again!

    I feel like we’re dices unwanted stepchildren 😅. A battlefront game with negligible care for infantry.
    Incomprehensible.

    I've been away for a bit. I saw some screenshots with some of the madness from these forums on a certain Discord, which in turn drew me back like a fly to honey.

    Very much liked the patch notes on paper, but when 3 out of the 3 other folks I mainly play with say that Sabers are broken (favourably) (Again....), I figured I'd just try stuff out for a round in Arcade, and then remain on the sidelines.

    That, and it's a bit awkward to find time to play with two guys from the US and one deep-cover ***** operative when also needing to care for an infant, so eh.. :D

    Edit:

    ...Why is "K - G - B" a censored thing? Huh... @Admiral_Xen , they're on to you!
    Heart of darkness beateth, Ultima
    Iron enigma treateth, Ultima
    Shielding light retreateth, Ultima
    Hydaelyn defeated. Ah, Ultima


    The fact is that if you're running it's because you suck, and the game shouldn't pander to players who suck.

    That's why OG Battlefront which didn't feature any heroes flopped instead of being a hit and spawning a sequel and eventual reboot years later? /s
    No but it was completely overshadowed by its sequel, due to it having heroes, making the game far better than Battlefront 2004.

    The obvious step to go forward after the overhaul happens. If heroes from different eras are allowed to be in every map, so should the weapons. The more options the player has, the more they'll want to come back to play the game on a periodic basis.

    I do have some thoughts on where cross-era should not touch like vehicles but I could be persuaded to allow some reinforcements jumping eras based on what the canon has done so far.

    An example of that is BX-series droid commandos were Vader's private forces outside of the Empire's stormtroopers when he was fighting against the Shu-Torun forces and Cylo's cybernetic group (who were deemed to replace his seat as Sheev's second-in-command).
