  • Graphics in general are fine on both, a hint more detail on PC with my good card. But really about the same. But let me tell you - I played on PS4 Pro first, and maxed out a lot of stuff since launch. Then I moved to PC when I decided I wanted to…
  • Update: My local server is playing much better in the last week. I'm curious to see if the upcoming patch does even more. Though, this could be a gamer volume thing, I think a lot of people are slowing play until they see the Season 2 release.
  • Try a different server (EA Account under options) Your game will continue to default your server to the closest location each time you star the game though. I was on Oregon Server, and lately it has been playing really well, but I think it is much b…
  • Just because you paid full price for a game doesn't mean they are going to talk about new maps on new worlds from a brand new movie before the movie is out. Be realistic people. Get clear expectations. Star Wars is a huge franchise and their are a l…
  • YES. Changing to different region, with worse listed ping WORKED. Head slap. I am in Oregon, but moving away from that server to OHIO did it. I get constant slow internet warnings during loading, but then the game runs better!! On Oregon server, I g…
  • For what it's worth, I've seen Anarchy Ninja who streams a lot of this game complain multiple times this week about it. He's also in the camp of, "Um... am I crazy, or is this happening now and didn't before? Anywho, back to killing."
  • The mechanic is clunky in GA game. Unpredictable to time. To make it better: 1. make animation smooth, like a jedi saber swing. Heck, just make it feel like lukes lunge attack even. 2. make it faster, make it something you want to use over and o…
  • Rook008, I'll give it a shot. I won't claim to be deeply in the know on server side stuff. So, I'll report back if that makes a difference. Crocket - Lol. Do we need liquid cooling to make this thing run okay? Should we pimp our rides? PS4 Pro wi…
  • The speeders on Crait don't run you over. Or at least, it is very very hard to do so. It feels balanced, skill based. Those are fun to get better at. I'm a good player. I don't really have strong feelings about the vehicles I rarely use. But I ge…
  • Oregon Server at 32 ms ping is by far my best region. I live in Portland. I am likely closer to a server over 95% of other players. Next closest ping is like 100 ms. It's not my connection. I've studies this intensely because I love this game but it…
  • Yep. It almost felt like lag though also. You hit block base on what you can see, and it looks like you should have had enough time to block, but the timing is wrong because what is on screen visually is not in real time. Maybe some lag or someth…
  • War is messy, unpredictable, and flawed. Tanks hurt. Avoid them or spawn with the right tools. That is BF2. Sometimes you have a sniper rifle when you turn a corner and there is an officer with a Blurrrg, you are dead. But sometimes you are a mil…
  • I am at my wits end about the lag. Game says I have 32 ping to Oregon Server. Speed test says 15 ms ping most times. Not our internet connection people. My kill count average goes from 25 to 50 when lag improves and I can see what is in real tim…
  • There is footage of a PC mod on youtube that is Jango Fett, looks really nice too. Go find it for yourself. They should just get rights to the PC mods already made and bring them to everyone on console. They are really well done. As good as DICE…
  • Ah, that explains a lot. I don't get heroes often in GA, because I don't want to camp in the selection menu, but when I do, I noted Luke was not working maybe. Yoda push works, but the range is horrid if you don't equip the star card to max for it. …
  • developers on twitter confirmed announcement early may (May the 4th very likely). They also admit they only make announcements at the end of the week. (May 4th is a Friday) that would put Season 2 either the following Tuesday or the week after. So, …
  • Thank you for this post. It makes everyone who reads it feel less crazy. This random Thursday morning in March, low traffic play time, I had no lag. It was beautiful. My kill count with just assault went from average of 23 to 50. Because I could …
  • I've had the smoothest running games ever on PS4 Pro since 23/4. Thank you dice!! Even if you broke a bunch of other random stuff, I don't even care, because it is finally running fast and clean in multiplayer. Noticed dramatic improvement. Still…
  • PS4 Pro, jerky unpredictable gameplay is standard. I've noticed the PS4 servers seem to be worse. I think its partly a volume thing. Xbox just has fewer users, or maybe it is in the PS4 version. Point is, streamers on xbox are getting constant inter…
  • Please review patch notes posted many days ago on this site. They mention darth maul's saber will work "better than ever before" in the notes. So, resolved.
  • To be clear, I watch a lot of anarchy, and he plays during the day, and the average competitor during the day on console is weaker, less experienced, maybe super younger. My career allows me some weekday play occasionally. Weekends and Evenings a…
  • Every weapon has a situational advantage. Officer's is close to medium defense. If you see an officer guarding an objective and you are something else without a high rate of fire weapon, you may consider throwing grenades, waiting for teammates befo…
  • I rock with heroes in Arcade! There, did that help? Of course not. Your argument is invalid. Let's all just assume this is a game and not Space X, the details don't always have to be perfect.
  • There's alot of stuff u can do to tweak your internet connection. Do some research. I've set the game mode on my TV for lower latency, I've port forwarded my brand new xfinity router, and my latency to the server is 32 ms with 250 m/s downloa…
  • The cards don't really make a difference at all in survivability. This is solely a skill based game. That said, you need to know as a trooper which weapons do what. If you start out with a medium range weapon with slower rate of fire, don't get up c…
  • (They flew this guy to Europe to view Bespin and other content just before launch, so I think it is definitely legit). It might be fake, but I watched some BF2 YouTubers discussing tweets from DICE that Clone Wars is confirmed for the next season…
  • I get your frustration. The learning curve on this game is really high and long. But that's what makes it worth all the glitches and stupid stuff that has happened. Tips to Get there: 1. Knowing the maps, it just takes a lot of deaths, time, a…
  • My bad. I guess it is what it is. Suck. And oddly, his stream remains great, despite his screen now shows a constant "your connection is not great" from BF2, but he still has better average. I never see a connection issue with the server and it stil…
  • I'm still hoping they can smooth out the high traffic server lag though. Weekends are almost unplayable compared to weekdays on PS4 and I have 32 ms ping and never have speed warnings from the server. Just glitchy, rubber banding crud. Drops my kill…
  • I'm in Oregon, with a 32-37 ms time, and I get the same issues. I actually just replaced my Comcast router with the brand new one and it has predetermined PS4 port forwarding which I have on. My PS4 lists my download test as 220 mb, upload is much l…
  • Explosive shot on any unit is really challenging. Remember, every unit has a situational weakness. Explosive shot is deadly at mid range, even sometimes longer range. However, close up, even the explosive sentry loses much of the area of effect. So,…
  • FAQ on the general discussion walks through all of the details on this. Go check it out. I'm not linking it for you. Work for it. 1 Skill Point per level reached. Those points only apply to that trooper type. You can't farm with your officer and…
  • Number of players matters, IMO. No absolute evidence, but watching youtube streamers, you'll note that Xbox servers are often smoothest, PC and PS4 servers can be okay, but often I notice the same lag on their feeds as I get on Oregon US server a…
  • Maybe short pistol infiltration can't shoot through, but if you have your rifles armed, it can shoot through. That seems reasonable, since rate of fire is so bad. Could make the shields not work with grenades and splash damage as well, so if a snipe…
  • I love this unit also. I think it is a common request that their imploder grenade do more .... of something.... at all. But they are not the best tank compared to a wookie. You can't use them the same way, DT dies too fast, agreed. Maybe they do…
  • Infiltration seeing through walls for a short distance would be EVERYTHING. OMG. Great idea. the mini map is really hard to see or use.
  • Or reduce points for initial buff, but then more points if attacked. It's a real grind with other classes comparatively. Agreed on some level.
  • Tradeoffs. I think the balance is totally fine. Every class has their "best scenario" with their type of weapon. The only thing I would change is the distance on officer pistols so they can't HS a sniper shooting an NT-242 across vast space. But tha…
  • I don't suck at Specialist, and the reason the hit points are low is to discourage close quarters combat. It forces you to stay behind the first line of assault and aid them from behind. It is necessary to create the right dynamic. Hardened infiltra…
  • Likely, lag. When I've had really good days, my HS count is so much easier. On bad lag days, even if the visuals on your system appear normal, the person you are shooting at isn't actually where you see them. So, you hit them in the head, but they a…
  • This one Thursday morning, I played through Oregon US server, not a peak time. The game was so smooth my kill count doubled. I was so used to accommodating for lag, when it was gone, I was a kill bot. Point is, it was the same day they started s…
  • ExtremeEcks wrote: » The EL just needs a higher Rate of Fire. 1. EL16 with reduced recoil and added range is dominant at mid range. 2. It is perfect for HS, it's sole purpose. 3. If it had a higher rate of fire, it would be yelled at like…
  • EA/DICE - your developer twitters accounts say you can't share big changes because you are publicly traded company, I get that. STATS - Keep a part of this forum as a live statistics page. Let us see what you see. And if you don't have an easy wa…
  • I don't even care about DLC or new content at this point. I just want smooth, non-lagging games. If they could just make the game predictable and reliable, I would be stoked. (low bar, I know). I'd enjoy extra content and customization after that. …
  • I see his point, even if the argument was not great. AIR stuff in the GA maps can be frustrating. When you get someone up there who actually knows how to work controls, they can repeatedly pwn people. I don't believe you need to change the air st…
  • Has anyone else noticed that specialist body color "blends" into surroundings in darkness? Maybe I'm making this up, but I've started hiding in dark spaces and it looks like this class goes more gray scale in dark spots than when I hide with other c…
  • I pretty much avoid playing on weekends. The increased player volume really makes the game suffer. I work a unique schedule, so I play midday during weekdays and while games aren't always full, the lag is much much better. Still not perfect, but pla…
  • I get why friends want to band together, but it breaks the game without some way for randos to also basically talk to each other. I wish emotes were commands, "Follow me", or "Let's back door them." or "I've got you covered. Go!"
  • Or just have a decent air force on your team to keep them busy some of the time. I hate getting deathed from above also. It's realistic, but super annoying because you have no targeting warning. There should be at minimum, a red outline that you…
  • A280 = you want to play closer into the action as a sniper. Long barrel guns = NT242 and er... the other one below it. Both are better long range. NT424 is only gun that can kill other sniper with one body shot and kill all other classes with HS. …
