  • Great! It's about time to be fair with the Beta/Game coming so soon.
  • This news is great, but quite telling in regards to the community size.

    Keep those servers full of targets!

  • Yay, this would be useful

    Not sure if this is a good or bad thing.....lol. I was in a game of Battlestation last night on the DS DLC. My team got pummeled. I was first on our team...at one point i looked and the bottom 3-4 players of my team was like 4-80 or so. One guy was 0-25. I never looked to see what he finished at. Id on't even understand how it's possible to die 25 times and not get a single kill.
  • Yea, I think you're right I had some losing games and there were a bunch of 0-12s and even a 0-17 lol

    Free credits being handed out too. When I logged in yesterday afternoon I got the "You've been awarded 1000 credits." pop up window. Couldn't sleep last night, so decided to start playing again around 1am, and at 4am I got the pop up again. Don't need them, but I'm not one to turn down free stuff...even if it is virtual money. LoL
    Yes, play! Yes, a gamer's strength flows from adjustment. But beware of the nerf side...not adapting your tactics, stubbornness, wanting the game catered to you; the nerf side of gaming are they. Easily they flow, quick to join you in a death & respawn. If once you start down the nerf path, forever will it dominate your destiny, consume you it will, as it did many an apprentice.

    I've been assigned partners where, upon spawning in on them, I've discovered them finding new and intriguing ways to jump off platforms (bespin or DS).

    That's how 0-25 happens.

    But, by all means, let's take the ATAT off the rails!!

    Game of Cargo last night, had one of those horrible partners that kept spawning on me and sprinting off. At the end of the match he was 2-41. And to make it worse, there wasn't a kill farming bactaguard on the other team. Their highest performer had only 26 kills.

    I'm so happy new players are jumping in now. Maybe they're like me and are not getting Bfront 2 @ launch(later on I will).

    I just got one of my cousins to buy it and I told another one as well. If all goes right I'll have a 5-man squad.

    We will DOMINATE that space station lol I'll be jumping between MWR, BF1, and this.

    Luke is now doing over 40 damage nearly 50 against Bossk and Chewbacca's Ground slam is doing 20-30 Damage because both attacks repeat in the instance of the One Attack

  • I think they should have made that a feature. I had a friend who got the same late and was really struggling for credits. They would only have 5k at a time and have to save up for skins etc. I would have given him a 100k or so if there was a way of doing so.

  • EA, here's a better idea. Everyone has the Season Pass (SP) content downloaded already. Just enable SP content for all just like you've done during free preview weekends, only this time, leave it that way. And while you're at it, add all SP maps to the game mode specific playlist map rotations where applicable. Shouldn't even require a client-side patch. Just enabled SP for all and update the game mode specific map rotations. Thanks in advance.

  • The DLC should be amalgamated into the game.

    Why? Just so it'll make the game more fun and inclusive? Pssshh! This is EA, they scoff at your human notion of "fun".

    Yeah, I knew I was asking for too much when I posted that.
  • I bought Battlefront last Xmas, but never played it. Just started last week, and I am already level 26. Fun stuff, then I saw that the season pass was free. Hell yeah I downloaded it lol. Now that I'm hooked, I'll probably download Battlefront 2.

    @Stalemate

    I hopped a game of Blast that was in progress. I only scored 825 points from kills (no streaks, accomplishments, or challenges completed), and didn't heal anyone. Final point tally after the win 6240. With no award score other than match and win points, and loosely doing math...that appears to roughly be 4x multiplier.

    If someone has a secondary profile that isn't rank 1000, then they should check to confirm the exact #.

    Yeah, but they still want to make a bit of profit from the game until the next game releases.

    I feel bad for anyone who'll miss out on the deal and be left with empty vanilla lobbies. It's like the Jakku release all over again.

  • I know it is a small sample size, but I have noticed a great reduction in the quality of players in the DLCs since this has been implemented. This is especially true in the fighter portions of the DLC game modes.

    @MWB33

    Thanks for checking! Are you sure? Someone on Reddit claimed it was a X2 multiplier. I played a few quick games last night but didn't notice how much the multiplier was.

    I haven't seen any official announcement from EA about this either. It would be nice to know how long it's going to go on for.

    Unless they have switched it on permanently.
  • I couldn't work out the multiplier last night either. In a game of Blast it seemed to give me 4x but when I earned 14,000 in Infiltration it gave me 28,000 so it may be 2x.
  • Very odd, maybe it varies lol.

    @Stalemate - I think it's an odd bonus. I remember there being a bonus score weekend at some point in the past where it didn't multiply everything, and the result makes the math come out funny. I think that time it was in match and accomplishments multiplied, but not challenges??

    Like I said, the math for that quick game of Blast worked out to roughly 4x.

    However, I had a match of Cargo last night that didn't add up for that multiplier. I only got 22 kills, but that let me hit a 50 kill challenge, 75 kill challenge, 1 explosive streak, 2 blaster rifle streaks, & lost count of teammate healing streaks. In match I had around 7k points (give or take a bit...it was 1 am and I was getting sleepy). We won 10-0, so also got the Cargo Master. Post match I got 39k points. Loose math in my head at the moment that seems closer to 3x multiplier.

    In any case, I think it's safely higher than double.

    Cargo last night was the same...there were more ES spammers, bactaguards, & bubble boys than normal (& that's saying something, because lately there have been a LOT). Lots of screen names that were not familiar at all, and most of them were running around half lost, not PTFO, and just weren't very good (going 1/1 or negative on K/D). This was contrary to the norm of the ES spamming bactaguards racking up 40-50 kills a match. Quality of play last night was extremely lacking.
