We’re finally getting some decent communication. Check out EA’s newest announcement and discuss:

https://www.ea.com/games/starwars/battlefront/battlefront-2/news/january-2018

I for one am happy to see a statement of commitment to listening to feedback and growing the game. I want to see this game live on for a long time and be the best it can be. I love the game and I wish the best for EA, DICE, and us fans.

    "It's been an eventful few months for Star Wars™ fans, hasn't it? Star Wars™ : The Last Jedi ™ swept into theaters, and millions of players lived out their Star Wars fantasies in Star Wars™ Battlefront™ II. With the release of The Last Jedi Season, the Resistance's brave freedom fighters and the First Order's imposing stormtroopers engaged in desperate showdowns on Crait over 156 million times, while X-wings and TIE fighters chased each other through the skies above D’Qar.
    Together, you completed over 10 million quests for your factions. 58% of you chose to join Captain Phasma and the First Order, while 42% fought alongside Finn and the Resistance.

    And to quote Luke Skywalker on the salt-covered plains of Crait, “the war is just beginning.” The most recent update added Iden's TIE/LN fighter as a hero starfighter and incorporated the Crait map into Blast Mode. The next few months are packed with massive additions to Star Wars Battlefront II.

    We're working on a revamped progression system. Your feedback has been essential here, and we are preparing significant changes to progression that will address many of the things we've seen players asking for. We'll be sharing more details about these changes in March.
    A game mode called Jetpack Cargo is coming in February. Two teams of eight players equipped with jet packs compete in Jetpack Cargo, a frantic, fast-paced way to play. This mode will only be available for a limited time, so don’t miss it.
    A new Season is coming soon. We’ve learned a lot from the first season of content for Star Wars Battlefront II, and we're integrating those insights into our plans moving forward. We know you’re waiting for details on what’s coming in the next season, and we’ll have more to tell you soon.
    Our goal has always been to create the best possible experience taking into account the feedback of our fans to continue to evolve and grow Star Wars Battlefront II.

    On behalf of everyone on the Star Wars Battlefront II team, may the Force™ be with you, and we will see you on the battlefront!"
  • Decent? Not at all.They didnt say anything about Season 2.The only thing they really confirmed is the Cargo mode since we already know they are working on a progression system.And if that comes in March, I doubt well see Season 2 before that.It takes way too long.
    You may not believe this, but you just wasted 3 seconds reading this™

    Nothing about character customization...
  • Any news on Arcade updates?

    It doesn't answer a lot of questions, but it is communication nonetheless. Which is something we needed.

  • Limited time? But why?

    Excited to see whats in store though, c'mon Kenobi
  • What does "soon" mean in the gaming industry nowadays?

    Soon is like over a year for most games I anticipate. Lol
  • Well, at least they mentioned the progression system! No mention of customization though ... even just basic skin selection would be nice!

    Why is Cargo time limited? Are they out of their minds? We need more modes, this game is getting old too quick!

    It is pretty much a given that it is coming at some point. It's been leaked in hacked versions of the game and it was on the official survey. There is no chance that it isn't coming at some point.

    There will be a milestone that ask you to deliver 50 objects in Jetpack Cargo Mode.

  • People can hate on a paid season pass all they want but at least it allowed us to know a ballpark timeframe of when to expect seasons... and what offerings those seasons held. Free DLC Seasons have allowed EA to be held unaccountable when it comes to providing us with information about the game's future. They really need to announce a road map, even if they can't 100% hit their goals on time. It would start a dialogue and would open them up to being able to talk about the process of giving us new content and how much time it takes.

    Well, they mentioned news about it in two months. That news could literally be we'll have new information for you soon :p

  • MARCH? Gosh Dang Flipping MARCH!?!

    How can it be taking this long to fix the progression?

    This is unacceptable.

  • cargo mode ... ok :*
    Really don't care about this stupid mode ...
    Need new map and new heros " master Kenobi , Anakin , Dooku , "
    Soon ... Soon ... Soon ... this is **** !

    Don't let them continue selling us a glass of urine telling us it's Granny's Peach Tea. Enough is enough. We need REAL communication and as much factual information on updates and patches as possible. I'd like to read an EA post/update that takes longer than 15-60 seconds.
    FTFY

  • No changes in progression system till march. Ok. DICE clearly said where community should go ;)
    Everybody is free, thank you all.

    This is the most minimal information they could have possibly posted without just saying "Hi, there. Have fun."

    The promises for constant communication and updates has notoriously been a falsehood.

    I think we're so starved for info that even when they basically say nothing other than "hey, this mode no one asked for is coming in Feb" people get excited. We still have no idea how the progression system will change or anything about when season 2 will come or what it will be....

    Problem is that we get so starved for real info that some people become complacent with any info and sell it off as “oh well, at least we finally got some type of communication/update”
  • The game's progression is broken, of course we want better news than this.

  • Just making sure you guys are aware of this. It doesn't seem to have gotten many views yet: https://battlefront-forums.ea.com/discussion/96540/star-wars-battlefront-ii-the-war-is-just-beginning

    There was also this: https://battlefront-forums.ea.com/discussion/96456/game-server-performance-update-feedback


    Go discuss each in their proper thread, as I am just spreading awareness. I will say that I am very happy with the update and season news though! Hopefully this means Season 2 will be here soon! :)

    Edit: Lol, its not even an official megathread, just clickbait... :lol: Still sorry for the duplicate though.

    this is really no news though
    they put out a junk half finished game and now it will be 6 months or longer before any significant changes
    this game will have lost 75% of the gamers by the time anything changes

    Yes, they deserve negative feedback.

  • No, they deserve even more negative feed back.

    Waiting for news in March that might not even be the solution the progression needs or may not even be implemented around that time is UNACCEPTABLE.

    Stop telling people they can't be mad at this game that's had broken progression @ launch, Nov 17 2017.
