    1) Every map/mode should already have a "dark mode" and it be in rotation. Always playing daytime is getting stale and too easy. Night time would mix it up, and we've had night scopes all this time but hardly any night modes... Ideally, maps should automatically change to day/night after the first match is won/lost. So if you play two rounds, you will have played the map both day and night.

    2) Bugs bugs bugs. Pushes not working (either not registering at all or pushing people sideways), major server issues (constantly getting kicked when playing in a group), etc... we need these fixed. Will this new update address these issues? Are fixes even being worked on? Should we expect these bugs to continue through the release of the new heroes?

    3) Will the update include further balancing to Capital Supremacy?

    Thank you for the prompt calendar release.

    Usual naysayers are active.
  • I was wondering when the rise of sky walker is coming to CS and if we are getting the original trilogy like the battle of Hoth to CS.
  • I wish more maps had night modes and for it to be a more prominent feature. Like make it even darker so that it changes gameplay in a bigger way, and you have to be more tactical e.g. in weapon attachments and scopes. It'd be great if you could choose time of day in modes like Instant Action and Arcade where different times are available, and I think another cool thing would be to make one of the Ewok Hunt maps a blast/arcade map where it's pitch black and you need to use torches to see. That'd change it up in a big way when these modes can get stale.

    What you guys gotta do is make fast spawn permanent, it doesn't have to be 1 sec it could be 3 or 4 seconds
  • my kids are asking when are we getting bb8 bb9
  • Out on the 2nd, pretty good for this bunch. Not much to it though.

    About OT we'll get the answer in due time. It took them 9 months to announce ST was coming to CS. We'll definitely get OT CS, just not now, nor its announcement.
  • I dont like nighttime map modes. Although Felucia in nightime would be awesome

    I was super excited about Felucia, and the the first thing out of my mouth was "why tf is it daytime????"
  • Night maps... if only we had twilight on Hoth from BF2015! Dew it!

    I hope we get a nighttime Felucia map soon for these nighttime playlists.

    He knew.
  • So just to confirm - for the Night Ops "Event", will GA only have the 4 night mode maps available (ie - removing 9 other maps completely so they can't be played)? Or will this be a seperate night ops playlist to GA as a tile on the homepage (regular GA to remain)?
  • 2/3 of BB8 complete on the news page. The next announcement must be when bb8 comes out
  • Well dang....... i was hoping this community calendar would've shown a little bit more about the upcoming update.

    Kanan is more of your cool kinda Jedi... not so weird/wise as most of the Jedi were like on the council. Kanan also owned a cantina at some point before he met Hera.
  • Add a Custom Map Rotation / Filter PLEASE EA !!!!!!!

    - Make fast spawn permanent or reduce it to 3 seconds.
    - Make Triple XP permanent only in SA and *****, and just affecting the ship XP. Takes too long to level a Hero.
    - All GA maps should have 1 match sunny and the other by night.

    Pretty lame events, as always. The only cool ones are Heroes Unleashed and Boots on the Ground (but with VEHICLES).

    No doubt about it.

    Based off this game's history, they will just be pulling them.

  • Can we get a couple months of Community Calendars where the development team outlines the dates where we will receive specific fixes to the long list of ongoing bugs in the game? I think the community would find that amazing. When so many bugs remain gameplay just feels like makeup on a pig...

    The latter half of the month, we usually release a CT covering the details/abilities of such new introductions before a release :)

    Wise one :)
    Could be worse but it could be better

    If you're referring to Heroes Unleashed, that much-loved event, then yes it shall return one day :P

    you should rework fighters exp, it takes ages to level anyone with triple exp, also hero starfighters should we reworked to be like hero showdown with a 4vs4 and maybe some IA to kill for extra EXP

    Since when do CS, Instant Action and Coop feature Day/Evening/Night ?

    I find it funny that the first time this happened to HvV, we could only play Mos Eisley, Kashyyyk, Endor, and surprisingly Kamino.

    Yes Kamino. If I remember correctly, Kamino was supposed to be having a stronger storm while this event was active. I didn't see a difference. But maybe the effects weren't made for plebs who own a terrible PC like me. Does anyone know/remembers any change on Kamino when these night mode events come up?

    Tired of BUGs?

    Well, they'll still exist.
    But visit the Rogue Bros Channel, there we document many BUGs and possible workarounds for them. There's also gameplay and other videos related to EA's Star Wars Battlefront (I & II)

    the next CT will tell you to turn your Light balance down on your TV or Monitor LOL

    IMO ....I think there are people that like to kill face to face and those that like like to snipe from an enclosed starfighter.... since another company did Star Fighter Assault its not Dice's thing to fix or make better
  • I really wish for these co op changes:
    *AI cannot open fire when using force abilities like pull, freeze and pull dominance.
    *All AI heroes now have normal health bars.
    *Time reduced when capturing a command post.
  • I love what you guys have done with this game over the years but for real, these monthly "events" are getting stale. Even the daily events are lacking. Anything that makes me have to play Ewok Hunt is a waste of time. And, as has been pointed out by just about everyone else here, Fast Spawn should be permanent, just as it was in 2015. There is no real benefit to having to wait any amount of time to get back in the fight, especially in Co-Op where your team AI doesn't count toward taking an objective.

    That mentality is a cop out.
    It’s not the “Celebration : Except The Part We Didn’t Make : Edition”.
  • The calendar looks good. Fast respawn should be standard..

  • I like how they think removing and restricting content makes things fun...
  • Fast spawn is bad because you have to be able to clear an area and hold it in an objective game. Too hard if you kill an enemy and they're back on the objective before you even get your health back from last time. Instant respawn makes GA unbalanced in favour of the defender, so expect short games not getting past phase one
  • BF2015 has immediate spawns. 9-second spawns to play against bots. Pathetic.

    Exactly. This game is nothing but spamming and waiting. Get rid of the stupid spawn time and let people actually play the game. When you add the wait time to the 3-5 minutes it takes to get back into battle because the spawn points are always on the other side of the map, this is another reason why players just quit matches. What's the point in playing when you are spending most of the match waiting and running to the objective. It actually takes less time to quit the match and go to the can.

  • You guys really created every event except heroes unleashed. Not to mention we didn't even get the unlimited power event for new years.

    There are far too many bad players here asking for instant respawns all the time. You'd never be able to take an objective if every second someone was respawning on it, they respawn like 3 feet away. You could also try not constantly dying, that might help.

    Some and some. Certain modes should have it so the action pace is quicker. I'm thinking SFA and Coop. Coop especially because watching 5 seconds count down when that yellow "overtime" bar empties is almost soul destroying.
  • Just a wishlist really after getting back into the game. Capital Supramacy is my favorite mode mainly because its longer. Would love to see them add Mace Windu, Qui Gon, Mandalorian, Baby Yoda..more maps, night maps.. etc. Hopefully this is on the horizon.
