Nerfing is on their To Do list though. :simper:

That card shouldn't even be in the game. I'm guessing it only exists because people flying about in the open as Fett in BF2015 were a massive target and would get killed most of the time, and would then bitch about it on EA's forums.

My point is that even if they suceed in their goal - people with the medium cards, most likley to be whales - will still have an advantage to obtain (and therefore most likely to obtain) the most powerful cards

Perhaps, but everything in the crates is randomized, and higher tier stuff is rarer, so even the high tier stuff you can get via crates should take forever to obtain, even using Crystals. It won't even be usable unless you've reached a certain rank, which you can't just buy.

Why are you being an absolute bootlicker for EA? It doesn't have to be like this, online games can exist without progression treadmills and microtransactions.

I think some of it comes down to the death of the Mid-Tier, mid-budget game. For the publishers it's either "Go AAA or go home" at this point and since they can't churn out games as quickly or cheaply as they used to, everything has to bring in as much money as they can squeeze out of consumers. It's something that's been going on since the last gen and it's finally reaching a point where a large number of vocal players have had enough with the route they're taking. The problem is that it's probably too late to change the mind-set of these publishers and the wider public at large don't even see it as an issue. Too many of them are quite happy with what they're being given, especially younger players who've grown up playing free-to-play mobile shite and just see it as the way things work.

In other words we're getting old and the newer generations are idiots.

I gotta agree with that, Cheeky. My nephews play mobile games and FIFA (Ultimate Team) and, to them, grinding through freemium games, getting loot boxes and watching YouTubers open loot boxes is videogaming.

Its the normalisation of this stuff which is the most offensive; that these systems of rarity tiers and randomisation are somehow natural or inherent and we're being offered a solution by the very people who created them in the first place. Guy Debord was right.

I'm a bit desperate for a new Star Wars game that doesn't suck ass or get cancelled, and I enjoyed the last Battlefront, despite its flaws.

I hate the way the currency and loot system is being handled, I'm just trying to cling on to whatever hope is left. This is my last big game of the year and I'm determined to not have it ruined.

More news, including EA responding to the quantities of credits per match and the like:



Summary:
  • Lando (in his RotJ Rebel General's costume) and Bossk will be heroes in the game.
  • EA capped progression and credits per match in the Beta; it will be faster and there'll be more credits per match in the final game. Hopefully the 150 per match Beta average will be at the bottom end of the scale, but knowing EA, it'll probably be somewhere in the middle.
  • Arcade Mode will have a daily cap on earnable credits. No word on what that cap is going to be. No daily cap for multiplayer.

Campaign previews are out. It's shaping up to be an interesting story

I'm excited :toot:

Still upsets me that everyone forgets about the two PSP games and their singleplayer campaigns - especially Elite Squadron's that had you go from regular battlefront grunt to Jedi

I hope the campaign is a lengthy one, but the fact that it only seems to take place on 3 worlds is worrisome. I'm guessing it'll take about 5 hours, tops.

I'll maybe buy the game pre-owned for the campaign later next year, (when it can be grabbed for a tenner like the last BF). Made a decision not to openly support a lot of the larger publishers any more, (or any developer who places MTs above everything else), through buying their games new. Also, I feel a lot of new games are vapid, soulless experiences, (through gameplay seemingly taking a back seat to the myriad of ways publishers try to squeeze more and more money out of customers), that I simply don't think they are worth the asking price - if even worth bothering with at all.

Again, thank God for my back catalogue. Used to view it with dread thinking I'd never get around to playing half the titles I'd purchased, but now I'm going to be buying far less games it's become quite an inviting prospect.

Anyone know if the single player campaign has a first person mode? All the footage i keep seeing is third person. Some of the modes on the first game only support third person. I much prefer playing first person.

I'm assuming it will have the same first and third person options as multiplayer.

I was just concerned because i think it was the Heroes mode that only had third person play on the 1st one and all the footage i saw was third person.
