    Better players are eating up aerials. And they can spam them. Really needed BP to be dbl or more

    Also the poor players. Lots of aiming at feet with rockets.

  • Reinforcement spam is a problem.

    I've had full lobbies where teams stayed full instead of leaving

    Agree, been trying to tell my buds that lol, good players usually have no issue with jumptroopers, it’s usually just weaker players or hero guys complaining imo.

    That said an elite jump trooper has no equal imo, the good thing is there’s not many.
    Something else I’ve noticed is one player can be game changing, even vs a large premade.

    It is so much better. It is unbelievably better. I saw people Unafraid to go to an objective and working in groups for the 1st time ever.

    Totally change game play and it's only been a few hours.

    No menu camping. I had my entire squad each match.

    And contrary to the naysayers I went straight to multiple full lobbies. Over the weekend I would have to search around.

    This sounds good.
    Can’t wait to jump on later today.
  • Now if xbox matchmaking could stop giving me below average teammates, while going up against sweaty pre-mades...
  • Crait plays way different. It would need adjusting.

    Too hard to break through.

  • I think the matchmaking, lag, and reinforcement spam is getting worse the more I play.........

    Must be your region

    I remain skeptical...
  • No, I am not very excited but glad you got this event. I prefer HvV game mode and I understand that troopers should be cannon fodder for heroes in Star Wars.

    I love this event!

    Normally when I play CS or GA:

    Me killed by a normal troop, vehicle, reinforcement: “ok, no problem 👍🏻”

    Me killed by a hero: “oh man, that’s annoying 😒”

    I have little bit different approach to this game:

    Me killed by normal trooper, big problem, I am bad :(

    Me killed by hero, no problem, heroes are OP anyway, I better get my Stinger pistol ready >:)

  • Great event, this mode and HU should be your bread and butter modes..
  • I'm a little rusty with GA and CS, but games felt a lot better last night. I love not having to worry about BPs, running an anti-hero loadout, or having to switch to an anti-vehicle loadout.

    If you are killed by a Trooper, and it was I, you are not bad. No... You were just next in line.
  • Nice event. Fun playing and suddenly where are the officers? Not so many at GA. Strange thing and also couple of nicknames has not yet appeared in games yet. Wonder why..... Funny though that Yavin 4 and AT/RTs available???

    I noticed that, Yavin was loaded with At/Rt’s, thought it may have been a glitch at first.

    Hmmm... There appears to be an Open Beta for the new COD MW on PS4 this weekend too.
    They should factor this in when they read their server popularity graphs.

    As far as I'm concerned, I re-installed the game for this event.
    Played my first match of GA since January 2018 and .... I had fun.

    Feels a lot more balanced and a lot more like what the game SHOULD have been like from the start.

    They should've kept the vehicles tbh.

    Agree. Cut the reinforcements aswell but keep the vehicles.
    Vehicles tend to have a unique strategic meaning for objective play in their respective phases and there is wide array of weapons specifically designed to counter vehicles.
    Same thing cannot be said about reinforcements ... or heroes.

    The admitted hero lords that officer, screen camp, and kill streak are mad. This event upsetting them is worth it alone. Level playing field kills them

    I think trying to cap over and over being blown off the map by anakin isn't fun at all and ran me away from the game.

    If DICE just put in the requested modes (cargo and extraction are the biggest longest running threads) along with TP we wouldnt have this split

    Lol I agree. I like heroes just as much as the next person but it is funny seeing them upset.

    Honestly it is nice playing in a big scale mode with just troopers. It is good for the community to have both choices.

    Once again on the money.

    The handicappers are out in full sweat this weekend lol.

    There is this thing I don’t understand: if I were interested in hero play, I would play HvV the whole day long. No vehicles, no stingers, just “epic” hero battles.

    Why come to the large scale modes for hero play, and be subject to vehicle and stinger spam of oh-so-sore loosers who can’t take being cut down by a saber?

    What could possibly be the appeal of running around with 5-6x the hp of other players and send 5 or 10 players hurtling through the air with a push of a button?

    Sure, I have answers of my own about these things, but what do heroplayers say? Is it because of the objective gameplay in those modes? I don’t believe that for a second.

    I hope Dice realizes what type of gamers are crying the loudest right now, and I think the reception of the event is largely good enough; so I hope they consider giving us a true trooper mode, be it DZ, TP, Cargo, whichever and start to appease both factions of players of this game.

    Well as long as you guys like it and are having fun, that's all that matters. As for me, I don't really care much for the event, its just kind of boring for me. But hey, I'd be cool with the idea of making it an event from time to time or even a separate game mode. I see no problem with that. If you don't like the event then just don't play that game mode for the time being. Simple as that.

    Yeah I’ve been back and fourth with the cod beta and this. Borderlands also released.
  • GA and CS are way better, Tue game is more balanced, there aren't OP hero powers heavily favoring LS, objective are much more contested for, every meter counts, no heroes just deleting defenders or attackers. Stronger teams still steamroll, but through better skills so it's absolutely fine.

    Wish this event was a permanent mode. Troopers playing the objective with pitched battles. Exactly why I bought this game in the first place.

    It’s great when your able set up a position with troopers and hold it for longer than 20 seconds without having to worry about sabers rushing in and blowing it up.

    Many bought it for that reason, it’s to bad most that did have long left. This game should have had both. They should have kept the infantry aspect of the last game and added a hero section for the hero guys.

    Ok. This mode is spectacular , but it really needs the vehicles. That’s all that’s missing.

    The differences in how the modes play without heroes were even better than expected.

    BotG, along with HU, are both better than than they standard ruleset for GA and CS.

    Yea, if they plan on doing this event again I’d like to try it with the vehicles included.

  • I think the vehicles would be fine. It’s actually been nice to be able to stick with a single trooper class and actually be in the top 5 at the end of a match.

    It's nice capping and not getting force pushed into another map.
