    Oh, but DICE gave something. Credits, double XP and a few new Sieges or whatever in the Base Command game.
    Problem is you didn't like the "gift". That's not their problem though.

    Pleasing their end users is not their problem? You have gamer Stockholm syndrome.

    They gave something as a gift when they aren't forced to do so.
    They GAVE you a gift, if you don't like that gift, it's your problem, others like it.
    They are pleasing some users, it's impossible to please everyone.
    We would all like to know more about the new game, yet they aren't forced to give us anything about the new game.
    At least they gave something, next time maybe they don't give anything at all and people learn to appreciate things more.

    Ridiculous line of thinking. Again, we pay them to keep us happy. Need proof? Look at all the changes happening with BF II that are a direct result of the players speaking up about features and changes they want. Looks they do indeed listen (sometimes) when they know the money and player ship is at risk. If no one says anything nothing changes. People like you who lick boots and chastise the fanbase for speaking their mind are the problem.

    They might show us something small like a clone trooper model if it's finished.

    According to one of the developers the models are ready now, they just weren't for the trailer. They look "awesome" in his opinion. i would actually really like to see them.

    Me too too bad we didn't get the chance to see them today. Oh well won't we be seeing some gameplay in about another month?

    You have no right to demand them to give something today if they don't want, it's a simple as that.
    They gave something for the last game, some people are enjoying it, if you don't enjoy it, it's your OWN problem.
    You can be dissapointed, but starting to say nonsense or critizice them for giving something free you don't like, it's not the right way.
    Are you paying them right now to demand anything just because it's May 4th? No, you paid for the first game, and they gave you something for the first game.
    When the second game comes out and you pay for it, you can demand them for stuff if you desire.
    Demanding this or that just because what day it is different. If they wanted they could not give players anything at all.

    May 4th =/= Forced to do anything, less give info about a new game if they do not want to. They gave something for players who still play the first game, some of those players are enjoying the small stuff they gave us. If you can only cry about things and be ungrateful, again, your own problem.

    You can speak your mind all you want, I do all the time. But when someone reaches the point of speaking nonsense because they DEMAND something, it's not "speaking your mind".

  • Over the life of this game, for those of us that have been here since launch, the biggest complaint has been the appearance of the lack of effort for a AAA title. A Star Wars title, no less. It hasn't always been a fair criticism, but mostly they have earned the snark they receive.
    So last year, when we got a nice Base Command siege and 4,444 credits the community was upset. Why? Because on a celebration day of all things Star Wars, the players of the only SW game for the current consoles on the market received what can only be interpreted as a "we gotta give you something I guess, so here you go...now leave us alone" type effort.
    I was expecting nothing, because DICE (post release) has consistently delivered underwhelming results. For most everything. For support/fixes, for the last 2 DLC content, for communication and involvement.

    You can ignore and disagree with the criticism all you want, but there is a a reason why a large portion of the community still left here participating on the forums still can get salty. Some people have higher expectations for games within the Star Wars franchise.

    DICE isnt obligated to give anything today, if they give credits and double XP, people should be grateful, they could easily give nothing at all.

    Because that's what we deserve for paying 120.00 for a half finished game.

    Star wars battlefront EA , a ''Triple A game (LUL) : Useless 4444 credits .

    Star wars battlefront 2 EA , another ''Triple A game'' : Gets literally nothing , not a concept art , not a hero reveal , literally NOTHING .

    Yeah , agherosh , we're a bunch of nonsensicals

    lets praise DICE for all their hard work , must've been hard to get off the couch and give us these substantial content/News

    Again, I don't know how you can't get that they aren't FORCED to release any info about a game that isn't OUT yet.

    It's not EA Play, It's May 4th. They aren't forced to give you any info if they don't want to, I'd love to see some info, but if we don't, we don't. They aren't obligated to show info the same way you aren't obligated to buy their games.

    10X0 = 0

    Really? 0?
    You know there's upgradeable classes, upgradeable heroes, upgradeable ships, 3 eras, Space battles, Campaign, New resource system, no more vehicle/hero tokens, weapon customization, you've seen artwork, Darth Maul confirmed, Yoda confirmed, Rey confirmed, Kylo Ren confirmed, Luke confirmed, Theed, Kamino, Tatooine, Mos Eisley, Yavin IV, Starkiller base, more weapons, heroes, planets, there's skins for heroes.

    Make yourself a favor, learn to count.

    DICE isnt obligated to give anything today, if they give credits and double XP, people should be grateful, they could easily give nothing at all.

    For many of us, who have unlocked everything and have more credits than we'll ever be able to spend (currently 2.8m), more credits mean absolutely nothing. Good deal for those who need the credits though.

    But that's still not their problem, they aren't forced to give anything, so people getting annoyed to not get anything or get credits/XP is not reasonable.

    'Give' anything? You realize they aren't actually giving anything beyond imaginary money, right? They haven't opened their actual wallets for us, beyond paying the programmer for 20 minutes of his time to change the multiplier in the code.

    The only actual money exchanged has gone the other direction; from our pockets to theirs.

    As someone has put actual money in their pockets, I might've voted for a patch and bug fixes instead of more imaginary money.

    It's not only May The 4th but the 40th Anniversary of Star Wars. You'd think for the current flagship game that there'd be more than a pittance worth of credits.

    It doesn't matter what it is or if it's May 4th or the 40th Anniversary. We would all like new info and footage, or XP, credits whatever.

    Thing is they DON'T have to do anything if they didn't want to. They aren't forced to. They gave players ingame credits and XP, the day isn't over yet anyway. But if they only want to give that, they have the right to do so.

    Yes. They do have that right.

    And we have the right to say.....uh....thanks.

    As much as I would like to see something, I'm sorry but this is where this community makes itself toxic. A suggestion/hope seems to turn into something everyone believes and then hypes themselves up over, only to be disappointed. Then everyone thinks negatively of the game etc.

    Look at the May 4th and clone wars series threads for examples.

    Its not like its just the STAR WARS DAY

    its not like GOH , a mobile game , is getting a fan favorite character and a huge patch .

    yeah , we're toxic for expecting something of relevance .

    I just don't get the whole hyping everyone up. We know they won't show anything. Just be realistic.

    The key word is expecting. Why when there hasnt been word or anything said that they would.

    Well....they do have some of my hard-earned money....so I'd like to think I have 'some' right to speak up.

    On May 3rd and before, I've made requests for:
    -Glitch patches (hero teleport, anyone?)
    -Tweaks to spawn points to prevent spawn killing (Carbon Freezing Chamber, anyone?)

    Tomorrow, May 5th, I'll make requests for:
    -Glitch patches (hero teleport, anyone?)
    -Tweaks to spawn points to prevent spawn killing (Carbon Freezing Chamber, anyone?)

    Not gonna lie: It would've been SO COOL to get those simple items on May 4th of all days. Am I surprised it didn't happen? Not for a second. The writing's been on the wall for a long time now. I get it. Most of us do.

    You'll have to forgive me for feeling so entitled and thinking "Meh...." in regards to receiving 4k credits.

    It's not about wanting, we all want things, I'd love fixes and new info.

    And really, no one has demanded anything. Most of us know what to expect from DICE. But the good companies, the ones that build up credibility with their customers, give players reasons to keep coming back. It's called effort. Some make that effort and are rewarded with a loyal fanbase. Some don't, and get criticized.
    Ultimately, it is apparent that DICE isn't all that crazy and passionate about Star Wars like the rest of us are.
