I havent been enjoying as much as I should have, I mean for me the game isn't even fun to play or like even worth getting on after work and relaxing.

First ) im playing on xbox one and i figure thats the biggest problem to this game, the servers are terrible and the lobbies aren't even located close to me, i feel , most of the time im like in european servers. I live in Alberta Canada and it says that Oregon is the best option(although i know that that region searching isnt even working since all servers in North America point to California,)

Second ) is that my game for some reason doesnt operate as it should, i mean the server side yes but my shots dont damage as they normally would, i take more damage and get killed around corners., i have the game for PC and it seems allot better but I don't wanna play PC constantly to enjoy the game.

I just don't understand how to have fun, the game seems dull and boring, no communication from DICE, no updates, no information on anything, I know they are trying to "fix" the progression but like 4 months into the games life cycle and thats it? I don't get whats hard about it, just copy what SWBF2015 is doing, like here's a sinple fix for the progression.

Total Points/10 = Amount of credits at the end of the game.
Normal + Bonus score + Objective score + Double EXP (whenever it drops)

And then it's allot easier and faster to rank up.

i don't know how to enjoy playing bf2. Like i just cant handle how bad it is becoming. Overwatch is nice btw :)

    There’s nothing worse than being frustrated by a game you love to play. I invested years of my life in a Star Wars MMO and learnt that the hard way. In my experience there’s two major problems with Star Wars games and EA’s BF is no exception.

    1. The dev team are just too small to meet the demands of fans.

    Why is this a problem? Everybody has their own perfect vision of what a Star Wars game should be and for the majority, game updates will always be lacking.

    2. Content is often driven by promotional tie ins.

    This happened in SWG (the Star Wars MMO). A good example of this was when players asked for Hoth but got Mustafar as Episode 3 was either in the cinema or coming out on DVD. This also happened in BF2015 with Rogue One and will happen with BFII and season 2. I await the inevitable **** storm that is brewing on the horizon.

    My advice to you is to play other games while and don’t wait around hoping for content that may or may not meet your needs.

  • just throwing it out there as well..... Randel Flagg- Kauri Best damn armorer on the server :wink: played when they did the CU but the next one after the think NWE where they shoehorned you in a class and thats it as well everyone can be a jedi at the start.
  • Switch on your machine
    Start the game
    Don't get discouraged if you struggle-you will get better. Learn from mistakes and accept you may need to change your playstyle. Don't always blame the game or other players.
    Don't pay attention to You tubers.
    Get out there and have fun. Good luck

    I just don't understand how to have fun

    I wonder if anyone does anymore. I mean that quite literally, and I don't mean just with any certain video game or entertainment in particular. "Fun", a 3 letter word that is an acute sensation and subjective experience per user in a case by base basis.

    Imagine explaining "fun" to someone else. How would YOU do it?

    if you got a second could you give me your opinion on this thread? https://battlefront-forums.ea.com/discussion/102217/heros-vs-villains-but-with-starfighter-assault#latest

    Resist the temptation of Battlefront being a Star Wars game. Imagine it as it was a non-Star Wars game and you can see truly how truly rushed, garbage and boring the game is.

    Then compare it with other games like Fortnite or Overwatch with caring Devs with proper communciation. Then you ll have fun playing the game you like.


    Always have hope tho, Someday (a lot sooner than we think) someone else might get access to the Star Wars License and then you can get a good game and Star Wars game both as one!

    Just a guess but do you play x-box on a tv and pc on a monitor? Because what you describe sounds like lag and it may be that your tv has a lot of input lag. Try plugging your xbox into your monitor and see if it's any better. Also if your xbox is using wi-fi try hard wiring instead with an ethernet cable. If none of that works it maybe time to move to California lol.

  • I first play multiplayer and then switching to easy arcade mode when multiplayer grinding is too much for me. I sometimes play also BF2015 arcade mode also. FPS gaming is fun when you manage to exceed your current skill level.

    I don't want to switch to another game, not yet anyway. I like good Star Wars games and this is good Star Wars game, even people argue otherwise.

    Don't play Galactic Assault, play Strike and Blast instead, the team balancing is *way* better (although still not great).

    I played starfighhter assault and for half the game it was 7vs5, then we got team mates and ended up being a full game and for no reason the game was rubberbanding hardcore, like i had to fly in 1st person to stop the lag from happening.

    The only thing you do here is constantly posting distracting messages across the forum. Why do not you try to be constructive a little bit, instead?

    Be constructive? ok no problem.

    Progression - DROP SOME DAMN DOUBL XP WEEKENDS while you "try" to fix the progression. NORMAL POINTS/10 = CREDITS, BONUS XP AWARDED FOR PLAYING OBJECTIVE, GIVE A MATCH BONUS DEPENDENT ON HOW YOU DO IN THE GAME. The worse you are the less points you get, get about 250 extra at bottom list to maybe 1000 extra at the top. will help players rank up faster and earn more credits and actually want to play the games objective,

    Give the top 5 players extra stuff, you base the multiplayer around SBMM and doing good but they don't reward you? add some extra credits or bonus score, 1st gets 1000, 2nd 800, 3rd 600, 4th 400 and 5th 200. Not hard.

    ROLLING - Disable directional Roll and make it so it's only side to side like swbf2015, add a option to toggle it between double tap and normal press, i dont wanna have to hold B to crouch, thats so dumb. REMOVE THE INVINCIBILITY WHILE ROLLING, ive thrown a thermal imploder at enemies and some survived because they rolled, DOESNT MAKE SENSE AT ALL.

    SERVERS - need to be boosted, increase the amount of Dedicated Servers and REMOVE SKILL BASED MATCHMAKING, most of the lag and online issues are thanks to SBMM, IT DOESNT WORK. AT ALL, IT CREATES GHUGE PING DIFFERENCES AND LAG TIMES INCREASE BECAUSE IT SEARCHES PLAYERS AROUND THE GLOBE INSTEAD OF WITHIN YOUR REGION, don't try to defend SBMM and say this game doesnt have it since Dennis said himself its what they use to match you with other players.

    HEROES - REMOVE THE WEAPON SCOPE from FINN, PHASMA, BOSSK, just stupid to have it there, makes no sense, takes up the whole screen and hides enemy players, just dumb to have, HAN SOLO needs a better reticule, a dot on the screen, wut is that a dot?? A DOT while everyone else gets crosshairs? SERIOUSLY, VADER CHOKE SHOULD BE ONLY 1 person and it should be a instant kill, the heroes are so weak and easily killable by EVERY CLASS in the game, give the heroes 1 hit saber kills against infantry, how does a HEAVY CLASS survive 3 or 4 slashes and melt a hero?? DOESNT MAKE SENSE ITS NOT CANON.

    GAMEMODES - Bring back walker assault, Galactic assault is fun but sometimes its just plain stupid. Wheres actual cargo, droid run? supremacy? Almost 5 months into the games life cycle and no new game modes, same ol 5 boring gamemodes that are just fusions of other game modes, "OH BF2 HAS 3X MOREW CONTENT THAN SWBF2015 OH WAIT LOLZ WE COMBINED ALL YOUR FAVE GAMEMODES FOR NO REASON INTO ONE GAMEMODE, ENJOY!!" NOW thats just being lazy.

    ION TURRET/ION HOMING TURRET - WHY DOES THIS TARGET INFANTRY? AN ANTI VEHICLE WEAPON/ITEM targeting infantry? huh where have you seen that? plus the splash damage is too high and the tracking is insane, it can track you half way across the objectives. NEEDS FIXING.

    ON MAP TURRETS - Useless, overheat too fast and deal little to no splash damage on enemy players, need to hit them directly, big ol lasers dont splash damage infantry, DOESNT MAKE SENSE.

    AT-AT/MTT - USELESS, ATAT has it's orbital strike glitched and doesnt work half the time, the lasers dont deal ANY splash damage at all, they deal like 10 damage per shot, it needs a buff to make it stronger, AAT is hella amazing and yet it's only like 1500credits, mae the MTT and ATAT around 2k or 3k credits but make the damage higher, the heavy blaster fire both transports have need 2 to 3 direct hits to kill troops, how does that make sense, yes i understand it's like 1 minute vehicle you operate and adds timer per kill but it's depressing that shooting players directly doesnt kill them.

    TEAM BALANCE - if there is a difference of 2 or more players missing from one side then lock the other sides ability to gain players until it's evened out, not sure why it's so hard, also when joining games in late and enemy players have like 60+ eliminations, why doesnt the game match those top players on one team with other players that do the same in other games? im sure DICE can do that since the game does use SBMM

    want more of my opinions on useless and dumb things in the game?

    >:) Oh, I can find plenty of ways to amuse myself/enjoy the game. It's just that those methods don't always leave me with the best player ratings. o:) *Fond memories of smacking/taunting Yoda and keeping out of his reach as Kylo*

    The thing I'm doing for fun, currently, may be a bit on the masochistic side. I've gone into my options and turned off everything. No crosshair, no kill log, no score log, nothing. I can never tell if my health is low. (the screen doesn't glow red) I can never tell if someone is about to die. (No health bars) I can't even see where the current objective is. All the while, lagging to hell and back. Trying to accomplish anything and being happily surprised when my team wins, or better, if we win and I somehow land on top (which has happened. At least once!) It might not work for others, but what can I say, I guess I'm just easily entertained.

    Play officer, spam battle commands and get a hero within 2 minutes

    or

    Play heavy, pick the dc and melt others' heroes in 2 seconds
  • The best way I've found to enjoy it is to try out different classes and card combos to see if you can find one you like. Don't hesitate to change class if situation dictates. If I'm getting my butt handed to me with assault I may switch to support to feel more useful. Also try to stick with teammates when possible. If opponent already ha an area fortified and you are getting mowed down when trying to approach, try a different route. I see a lot of people piling up in hallways getting destroyed by turrets. If possible try a different route. Also don't force yourself into a certain playstyles just to get an achievement or daily objective. If your not comfortable doing something then it's okay to let someone else play that role. If goal is to have fun you want to have as much freedom as possible
  • It's all about getting those heroes. Even if you die, at least you got to be a Star Wars icon for few minutes.
  • Add some friends. Play Blast or Galactic Assault in a party with a microphone and use some strategy. Its a nice change.

    Your server should be set to Oregon. The backbone of Shaw/Telus is ridiculously direct and connecting to Oregon is the best route.

    Find me in Blast, Strike, or sometimes GA, usually playing Officer/Specialist/Aerial... u/n cosworth99. #oldguy
    Add me (xbox Oregon server) if you like

    Hey. I share your sentiment and locale to some extent.

    I'm not sure what transpired if anything but over last month I sense connectivity issues/lag. I'm in Nelson BC.

    I'm not savvy in regards to the server issues but am curious if that has been impacting my gameplay. About a month ago I noticed some lag and also like you, getting hurt or killed more. Also my damage seems to have diminished. I'm average player I believe but it is frustrating when I become below that, and not from my skills perhaps. I have noticed games stopping midway, some lag still. I moved my Xbox to tv right beside modem and connected with Ethernet. My connection seems above average? I have even noticed the signal bars on my tv occasionally??

    Does your location really factor in? Does that apply to this game or Xbox in general?

    I do agree about team balance? Why is it so hard to achieve? And perhaps the most egregious is when teams stay intact for new different map.

    I swear bf1 didn't even do this.

    Cheers

    I'm on xbox, in Colorado, close time zone to you, using the Oregon server as well. I've logged a ton of hours in BF2, wrapping up ~5 more milestones and I'll have this beast completed. And then I'll probably just rock my specialist class and dial in my favorite heroes. Not a bad way to kick it every night after work.

    Sure, the game needs work, those servers can lag, but they'll eventually fix it. If they don't, it's the last BF game @ release I'll ever buy I can tell you that.

    I always found the best tip to enjoying any SW game is to stay alive as long as you can and take in the visuals. Star Wars has always been about groundbreaking visual environments. So, in BF1, I started that game in early 2017 - was a total scrub - but learned that sniping was more my thing, I could operate slower, enjoy the view, and stay alive longer. By September of last year I could get a 48 killstreak w/my DLT, I had my spots on the map, etc. BF2 right now doesn't have those vibes just yet. The game feels kinda rushed, and very chaotic. But as a specialist, you can kinda smooth out that experience a bit. The trade-off is you're probably not gonna rank very high on the leaderboard. But that's okay IMO. The SW fans haven't gotten their version of Uncharted, and if you're after a film-accurate game, this is the best thing we have so far.

    And the best tip for enjoying these kind of games IMO...take a couple weeks off and forget you own BF2. Sit back down with some fresh eyes B)
    Let's all remember that Luke's hand didn't clank to the stone when he vanished....Everything organic disappears as a force ghost. The in-organic stays...

  • Another tip I would give you, as odd as it sounds, take a break to enjoy other games. Then come back in a few weeks and see if it's more enjoyable. I did this and it was like a refresh. Just burned out on the same galactic assault over and over. After taking a hiatus the game was more fun
