    Regardless of the issuss the season pass introduced - fracturing the play base time and time again - I loved this game. Battlefront was my go-to time waster since it launched, and the sequel has me pretty excited too. I’m not crazy about some of the changes though, so, I hope it doesn’t let me down.

    I guess they're not bringing back the Walker Assault mode? That's kind of a bummer since I played that mode almost exclusively.

    That’s a super bummer, reading about how loot boxes are handled it really sounds rough.

    I think Hoth and Endor in BF2 GA will be kinda Walker Assault-ish.

    Do we know how many maps that Will be available on Strike and Starfighter assault?

    No. We currently know 6 starfighter assault maps.
    Ryloth
    Kamino
    Death Star Debris
    Fondor
    Unknown Regions
    Starkiller Base
    No indication if there are more in the final game.

    We only know of the takodana map for strike. I would bet at least 11 like galactic assault because they could carve out smaller sections of those large maps.

    It’s a good sign that they’ve addressed the feedback like that, and communicatated the changes clearly.

    I don’t think the system was as bad as many claimed in the beta, but this looks like an improvement.

    Nice.
    Now fix Pro-support and I'm good.

    That system sounds a lot better.

    EDIT:
    Hmmm, not too sure about that part though, so there is no way to get those without pre-ordering or paying extra?
     
  14. #64
    Although weird, they can't back down from those, so it's a good compromise imo.

    At least it is some progress and they have listened to what people were saying, my pre-order it just hanging on in there currently.

    The issue I think is that the system they have gone for is so fundamental in the way it has been built into the game that it cannot be fully removed from the game, at least they are trying to make it better and in the original game they did keep changing things as the time went on from the feedback that was given.

    I think maybe due to this change we should maybe be a little bit more positive towards the game after what happened with the BETA.

    I have an email from EA thanking me for playing the BETA and that there is a special 'crate' waiting for me, anyone else have this or anyone know what the content might be.

    I really do have to give the original another blast before the sequel is released though.

    Yeah there’s videos for all the characters on that site. Kylo looks like a more mobile Vader which presumably you could have 3 sabers on one team

    They added Yoda and Kylo yesterday. But the site still misses Lando, Leia and Chewie, even if we already have seen the gameplay of them. I hope they will add info about the other modes / maps sometime soon. Just info about the numbers/info about the maps at GA right now.

    I really want to know who is composing the music for BF2. It sounds like something John Williams would create himself.

    Gordy Haab, same dude who did battlefront 1

    I don't see a point when we will have a new big shiny OT in a week.


    Also, cool feature, you can @ someone to tag them in a post and they'll get a notification. MrDaravon

    Really disappointed that there is not more hype on the main gaming section for SW:BF2.
    Counting the days.

    This is of interest to me.
    I have a PS4 Pro which is my usual go to for games, BUT I am also picking up a One X.
    I am torn as to which system to pre-order for.

    We still don't have all of the info for everything in the multiplayer, which is kind of stupid.

    Indeed. I want info about maps for the other modes

    Was playing this tonight with a friend in a bit of a ramp up to 2's release, and it occurred to us how even though it's probably terrible from a design/reward perspective I'm glad 2 has SOMETHING that will still earn you progress when you lose a match horribly (credits towards loot boxes). I'd consider myself above average in the first game for sure but I'm not on that upper tier of player that does all of the crazy rolling/personal shield/cycler rifle shit, and at least once a night someone who is ridiculously good and doing all of that will totally destroy me in a lobby going 60-2 or whatever until I finally get fed up with it and quit. Happened tonight when we were playing, and my friend is not nearly as good as I am was just getting wrecked horribly. We were talking about it and agreed that sort of thing is still going to happen in BF2 because it's going to happen in any online competitive game, but at least in BF2 you'll still get something out of matches even if you're super terrible or you lose horribly. Whereas right now that's not really the case; I mean yes you get credits but anyone who's put in any amount of time is already at max level with everything unlocked. I mean sure you could correctly argue you should play for the love of the game, or the loot boxes should be 100% cosmetic or any number of other things, but giving players who lose SOMETHING to carry out of a terrible match I think will be a big help in keeping the game going longer with a bigger audience, at least potentially.

    As an aside, have trophies/achievements really not leaked for this yet? Very surprised.

    4 days until the early access (not pre-order stuff) thing right? Through that EA Access thing or whatever it's called

    EA access is on the 10th I believe. I'm on PS4 so I haven't paid any real attention to that, but is the 10 hour (?) trial or whatever you get from that literally anything in the entire game, or is is limited to MP-only?

    It is usually the full game

    The single player is usually limited in some way to a timer or a set number of levels so you can't play through all of it.

    Anyone picking BF2 up at midnight?

    I see, makes sense.
    Bought it via PSN, so basically yes.

    Wonder if they’ll do a classic map pack

    You mean classic maps from the first one?

    I really have to give the original another blast before BF2 releases, I have not played it in months.
     
  45. #95
    Yeah. Like if they entertain the idea of throwing in one map from the season pass that a lot of people didn't get to play I think would be wicked.
