  • Well now I finally have something to spend my credits on.
    Heroes are born on the battlefront... especially if you play the objective.

    I see dark side got buffed pretty good.

    Vader 25% during choke...so with FR + 6 sec card...he can merrily choke away longer with 50% damage reduction! Vader mains in GA will plow through plebs like no tomorrow.

    Gen G is now the spammer friendly DS go to hero in HvV/HS. He was already a good medicine for a spamming Luke and Ani....now he can out spam them.

    Kinda sad to see Ani didn't get anything...now sticking with a Finn won't do any good if a Dooku is around with a dominance card. Even phasma and his bot can waste Ani faster than before! I was hoping his HM will increase damage as he gets hit....since the move is STILL bugged and he locks up during animation than releasing early. He has become the irrelevant one in HvV for sure.

    The only good thing LS got is blaster heroes able to dodge during their spam abilities.

  • SPECIALIST
    • Fixed an issue where the Specialist's Repulsor Cannon would not always knock an enemy down.

    Will it come with a buff too?

  • Nothing worthy to talk about, hopefully you do better with the final december update...
  • Guess it's time I get back to work earning credits in this game.
  • The most skins are horrible.

  • Vader and Boba buffs, Even more unnecessary clown skins!

    So good, please give us more!

  • Damn, this update is sounding GOOD. The new Special Unit Appearances look amazing, and I'm really happy to see a lot of improvements I've been wanting are being implemented. Not to mention, quite a few issues that have been irking me are getting fixed, too. Really looking forward to this update.

    Awesome work, DICE! Please keep these QoL updates coming. :sunglasses:
    "All wings report in."
  • hmm, so no fix for the people who struggling to play the game for the last 2 months, described in this topic:

    They also ignore the loading screen bug. Just impressive

    Whats is up with the "Kinda sad to see Ani didn't get anything", I mean I really don't understand these types of comments? I do feel like it is one of the problems with this game. Dev's shouldn't balance by buffing or nerfing 1 hero. How about, Kinda sad to see Leia didn't get anything meaningful... or that Finn didn't get anything, or that Yoda is still nerfed/bugged, etc... Buffing one of the best LS heroes is such a pointless request and just makes the power delta between him and other poorer performing heroes that much larger...

    I mean stating that, "He has become the irrelevant on in HvV for sure" is just blatantly false man, he has the ONLY pull on the LS. He has a move that he can't control its duration that also gives him 90% damage reduction and is AOE, unlike Vader who only get 25% as of Wednesday on his Force Choke. And he get a 4th ability, that is probably one of the better abilities in the game, Retribution, that also has high damage reduction. To call Anakin " the irrelevant one in HvV" is just false. Could his animations be a little smother & could Passionate Strike be sped up, sure, but that just moves him to THE top tier lightsaber hero, with a 4th ability that is just building up as long as he can stay alive.
  • All the clone wars reinforcement appearances I want are coming in the update, thanks DICE
    All but one for the B2 rocket droid from TCW episode “the unknown”
  • Disappointed there's no small buff to Anakin but I don't think the nerf to Luke was enough. Still seems to be a bit high when considering how fast he is. Darkside seemed to have gotten huge buffs, aside from Palpatine, and I think a few other Lightside heroes might be able to use a few buffs.
  • I think these skins are OK, my favourite is the citadel commando droid. One big issue of mine is that I cannot see half the appearancs well, because of the poor lighting and that terrible background. I would love to see the return of the starting ship interior with the big window with some lighingt changes. Can the lights come from the front and could you remove any smoke there?
  • Why was this held back from November? I'm glad there's a lot of bug fixes but I thought there was a big reason this was being held back?

  • Welp guess I'm just gonna keep this game uninstalled cause all we have left to look forward to is ST garbage ...unless we get OT CS ....then....ill be interested but nope just skins for things I don't use ...yup
  • So the lie of new weapons post launch is still continuing, no droideka standard weapon and overcharge range buff, enforcer class still has the useless hit notification card that replaced the useful AOE damage card, no passive health on kill for reinforcement classes. When will any of this be addressed?

    @F8RGE what is the difference between now and Wednesday why not just tell us everything today. It’s only two days apart

    You can tell us F8RGE, we will just pretend we don’t know it until Wednesday.

  • And the regional language lock still remains... What's the point of paying the same amount as the rest of the world through ORIGIN, when you get only one 3rd rate dub to listen to? There is literally no point to the feature whatsoever.

    Not sure but it will rpobably be linked yo the rise of skywalker content is some way
  • q7uryn074kak.png

    This is most likely the news we’ll hear about on Wednesday.
  • Great more dumb clone wars skins....guess were stuck with all using the same exact Wookiee and Jet packers we've had since launch?

    Where are the emotes and victory poses for reinforcements?
  • All these bug fixes I never knew existed yet friendly vehicles on the map continues to frustrate.

    Also....Mandalorian content? I’ll take the trooper skins from the 1st episode.
  • And the promised reinforcements? @F8RGE

    You promised it for before December! Nobody remember it?

    A promise is a promise, or did @F8RGE promise things which he can't live up to himself? It's always easy to promise something and someone else has to take care of it.

  • Thankyou for the update guys. My feedback would be:
    Thanks but not for me for any of those appearances. Does nothing for me at all, don't want any of them.

    UI changes sound good though. Looking forward to seeing if that improves immersion during matches with less clutter on screen.

    I approve of updates to palps.. he needs those changes.

    Disappointed we have even more CW content again, no other era stuff.

    It's ok, kinda used to it now. I hope those that the appearances are for enjoy them.

    UI is my favourite part of this update

    Ok when you bring Princess Leia up....there's is no argument there ;) But for a chosen one I want him to be the chosen one and getting some attention....not a walking nuke he was but still someone you would think twice before mindless spamming. But at his current state....to me, Ani in HvV, is irrelevant.

    His pull move is not as fluid as Kylo's pull which can be performed on the go on land/air and in between moves. Moreover Ani's pull placement nerf /change took it's advantage away. And speaking of his 4th ability or whatever...if I'm around...the opposing Anakin will not live long enough to pull it off. And I've seen many adept players who can trash a very high level Ani's. Even in GA/CS when I see Ani pulling off retribution....I just spam his head at the end of the animation as he takes full damage, plus if someone stinger'ed him...that's where the 4k points end for someone. Moreover it's a damn short move, the OG one was worth saving up for due it's length and damage....but not at it's current state imho.

    I'm fairly adept with Ani and I stay away using the current garbage Retribution ability unless I'm in tight corridors like Naboo...never in open space or else I'll lose him fast. Only other time I use it is in a pull+retribution+hm combo to badly damage palpy in GA/HvV.

    I have no issues taking Ani's out as Vader, Kylo, Dooku and Gen G...plus I can block turtle as Vader since Ani's PS is just is not as effective as it was before knocking turtle Vader's off. And unlike Luke or Obi, Ani has no damage reduction while moving(apart from the dodge like everyone else) or get me out of here move...and his saber swing is not as fluid as those two either. All he has left is the massive strikes card...a broken shadow of his former self. So yeah, in my opinion, he's fairly irrelevant as the "chosen one" in HvV and that is not going to change at his current state. Of course you have a different opinion and I respect that :)
  • So disappointed the stinger pistol isn't being fixed :(
  • You didn’t solve the hand fight issue with the specialist then... It’s been more than 2 years now...
  • new skins and caracters tweaks. nothing about the queue glitch. felucia still not added to GA.

    cant wait for wednesday.

  • To be honest I am struggling to understand why this update was not done in November though... I see nothing pertinent at all.

    Unless it was to make sure you got max revenue from the celebration edition release?

  • Anyone else feel like they’re playing with a bunch of 5 yr olds that dont know what the objective is in Capital Supremacy? They need a ranked system so competent players can play alongside each other, making games interesting and not just a victory based on which teams isnt quite as dumb as the other. This is where most of the 3 hr long matches stem from, people shooting around the objective instead of actually at the ship’s weakpoints. Its infuriating and the only reason I refuse to play capital supremacy.

    nahh, although it can be annoying, battlefront is not really a competitive shooter that would justify a ranked mode
