    DICE is part of EA, which is the company I was referring to.

    Seems likely. We were hearing absolutely nothing from him other than mandatory patch notes and comments explaining said notes. He just didn't seem passionate since the whole MTX debacle, so hopefully the next guy is a bit more passionate and willing to communicate.

    Thanks, I was wondering what he said since I can't see his Twitter anymore. Hopefully this means increased communication.

    Unfortunately, it doesn't work that way; I can only communicate around what is approved by our teams and partners. To be a bit more open, I have been working hard to bring forth all the details on our progression update in a pretty large FAQ with our internal teams. The dev team has poured a lot of work into this update, and I am proud to have been apart of this effort in even the small way I have been. Look forward to details rolling out about the changes ahead of the actual patch release.

    As a side note. Every week I send a fairly robust report internally that goes directly to Dennis, the EP and the leads of the Star Wars Battlefront team. This report contains the desires of just about everyone within the community, details on what the topics have been on the forums, Reddit, YT, other sites and a lot more. We also highlight the current in-game bugs and issues and work directly with the Q&A team in hopes to reproduce and fix reported issues. Reporting issues is one thing, but reproducing them has been a small nightmare.

    Topping the charts this week:

    * Duplicate Star Cards are still not giving credits.
    * DC-15LE is unbalancing the game
    * Micro-stuttering frame rates still an issue for some players
    * The Aggressor / Defender Milestone still appears bugged for some users
    * PS4 trophy “The force is strong with this one” (reach level 50) is reported as broken by some players

    Please know your requests, desires, and reports on bugs are not falling on deaf ears. Unfortunately, they are just being reported over and over again, and @Mr_Taver and our Mods team are making sure the team is aware. We are responding to threads, but just not all of them.

    I think I can speak for the entire team in saying we are very much looking forward to revealing what we have been working on.
    Thanks Sledge, it's things like this that will help keep the game going. Good luck in the future.

    Thanks for the clarification and I wish you all the best with whatever you decide to do next. I'm also glad that you guys are seeing the feedback from myself and others as well. @t3hBar0n made a great post after 800 hours of playing with some great feedback and I myself listed several things I would still like to see in a thread called "When is 1.3?". My thread had 30+ likes on the OP, so I thinkk it's fair to say that a decent amount of the community agreed with me. I would link the posts but unfortunately I am using my Xbox to post this. Please give those threads a read and pass them on to the team before you go because I would greatly appreciate it.

    Again, sorry that you had to come to the decision that you did, but I wish you all the best. Cheers.

    It's communication - even if there's no details - it's something and that's a positive.
  • Sad to see sledge leaving but it's his life. Laughing at the DC part, I just got my level 20 friend back into the game and now we are both constantly rampaging with the DC everyday and everywhere.
    I no longer use this account or anything Battlefront related as of 08/07/2018.
  • :D :D :D DC-15LE is "unbalancing the game"...lolz.

    - 10+ Specialist on each team on Hoth, Jakku, Endor, Kashyyyk that DON'T PTO isn't unbalancing the game?

    - 10+ Officer's on each team running around Naboo, Kashyyyk, Jakku, Death Star II and Tattooine, isn't unbalancing the game?

    - BLURG Officer's who can still 1 shot burst a Heavy class at 200hp while a LMG is duffing their face/chest with 7+ rounds is dead before the Officer with 150hp, isn't unbalancing the game? Pistol over LMG....interesting.

    - ALL weapon cool down bug, isn't unbalancing the game?

    - Officer BP accumulation Hero Rat Race, isn't unbalancing the game?

    - Death Star II choke points for Rebs in the 1st phase where Imps can "spawn camp" the front entrance doors, isn't unbalancing the game? (yes, I've done this tactic MANY MANY times, and it's also annoying being on the receiving end)

    - Match making still not working as intended, isn't unbalancing the game?

    - Receiving "staggering effect" by a Lightsaber Hero's while trying to roll/jump away as a Blaster Hero at full hp in an open area, isn't unbalancing the game? (because once you are hit by Rey/Luke/Yoda for example, it's nearly impossible to roll/jump as a Blaster Hero from thier 10ft Lightsaber reach since you "stagger" with every hit).

    The "bug" affecting weapon cool downs is the result why players use the DC-15LE ES more often, NOT because DICE magically buffed it in some way. BEFORE patch 1.2 rolled out, players STILL used DC-15LE ES but not as much as the TL-50. DC-15LE had a much faster cool down yet slower rate of fire. So, what do players expect when something "good" comes along the way "accidentally or unintentionally", players tend to "use" and "exploit" it to their advantage. Then, there's the calm before the nerf storm.

    DC15-LE ES PROS:
    - It deals great damage to players and Hero's. (hence the word, "EXPLOSIVE").
    - Extensive time to fire weapon before it cools down (bug affecting weapon).
    - It's very effective against Armor.
    - It's great at suppressing players from med to long distance.
    - Great at suppressing objectives when hordes of opposing players are trying to capture a objective. (isn't that what suppression does....keep players from gaining an advantage over another team by suppressing the ground they are tying to overcome)
    - It annoys Salty Sam and Try Hard Tina.

    DC-15LE ES CONS:

    - Long cool down opens up the heavy class for attack while cool down is active (unless player equips Shield/Bodyguard, then chance of survival is increased)
    - Exploding Shot can splash damage self in close proximity of another player, friend or foe.
    - Players complain it "kills their Hero's quickly" (incoming Explosive Sentry relapse meltdown trigger effect)..(PRO TIP: Don't keep hacking and slashing towards a DC-15LE ES player unless you want to get melted, although, it's very satisfying to ruin someone's day).
    - Damage output is reduced at long range.
    - Assaults can still kill you :D
    - Heavies can still kill you :D
    - Officer's can still kill you :D
    - Specialists can still kill you :D
    - Anything that can shoot at you, can still kill you :D
    - YOU ARE NOT IMMORTAL :D

    But take ONE weapon out of everything else that's "unbalanced" (mentioned or not mentioned) in this game and everyone goes ballistic, grabbing their Nerf Herding Lynch Mob and mounting up :D

    I know, I know...It will be all over soon, just roughly ~2 more weeks, then everything goes back to normal...wait...what am I saying, nothing is normal about SWBF2 (palm slaps forehead) duh!!!

    Well of course! It is substantially better than most weapons. I would use it too! Only rivaled by the Scapel gun if landing hedshots, or the CFE if landing two headshots in a row with the burst mod!

    People need to understand how frustrating it must be to have impatient customers constantly hounding on them for updates. As a developer myself, nothing enrages me more when somebody keeps asking when an uncertain programming task will be done. We seldom know how long it'll take to complete something, and what pitfalls we can encounter. Relentlessly hounding them won't speed the process up or even motivate them to communicate what's not been approved. This shouldn't be a surprise to anybody.

    Just exercise a bit of patience. Updates will come out when they're ready, whether you like it or not.

    You think the coders are here feeling hounded? How cute.

    Yeah. Every time a dev opens their mouth they get bombarded by "OMG WHEN IS THE UPDATE!!1!". You see it all over Twitter and on the forums. And then people wonder why they never stop in to talk to us.

    Ex:

    People are so impatient. It's not gonna change anything. We all know by now DICE/EA communication is garbage.

    Scrum Master? Sprints? No matter how they work. They need to have an intern roadmap and estimate how long they need for their tasks. The thought behind my post is, that it's under approval by disney or anyone else. So they know what's in the update ;)

    Don't tell how people have to feel after many months of promised improved communication. It's normal that people ask. Devs are taking it with humor ;)

    That's great and all, but I can tell you right now communication probably won't improve despite any promises. It hasn't improved in the years since the first game was announced. Even now with sledge leaving he's hinted at being limited in what can be said. So being patient is all we can do.

    If they don’t want people asking about anything, they shouldn’t promise increased communication. Basic life lesson: If you promise to do something, you’d better do it if you want the respect/trust of those you are making the promise to.

    They promised us a weekly Q&A session and they couldn't even commit to that. After the first game I stopped expecting reasonable communication.

    EA when we are trying to play today:
    I’m afraid the servers will be quite non-operational when your friends arrive.

    I was trying so hard to find a fitting quote but yours just beats it.
