Then imagine someone coming online with a different query. Out of hours of habit, you automatically refund their game.

Also, is anyone finding the campaign a little on the easy side? It's not particularly thrilling from a gameplay perspective, so I think I'd like it less if it was harder, but I feel like I'm going through it on autopilot. The dogfighting is great, and the presentation and fan service is top tier, but when I'm shooting AI dudes on the ground I'm endlessly headshotting them.

It's a game for filthy casuals, of course it's easy.

Did they really drop the credits players receive as a rewards in matches?

Nope. They're exactly the same as they were. You used to get enough to buy the campaign's Commander Iden Versio (20,000) for beating the campaign but now you instead enough to buy the campaign's Commander Iden Versio (5,000).

Isn't that just the campaign reward? While the match rewards were untouched? If that isn't the case then EA strawberry floated up even harder that I thought possible.

Obviously I've got this game so I'm part of the problem. But what I haven't seen mentioned yet is the daily credit cap in arcade. You get roughly 100 credits for a success and after 3-4 you hit the cap and it doesn't let you earn any for the next 24 hours. Literally mobile F2P mechanics in the arcade mode of a £40 game.

Yeah, we found out about that just after the Beta. Ridiculous. Can't be having people earning their way to the top by enjoying the loot box-free Arcade mode, can we?

Got the game in the post a few minutes ago (Amazon delivered on an actual launch day :shock: ), got an 8GB update to squeeze onto my PS4. Good thing I upgraded the hard drive.

The backlash is genuinely heart warming. I imagine the PR Guys at WB are watching it in a post shadow of war world and saying "see I told you it could have been worse"

Wiping everyone out as the Separatist AAT on Kashyyyk. :D

Is the game fun to play? The last one was meant to be pretty good although lacking in content right?

I'm having fun. :)

Strafing ground units in my X-Wing on Takodana was surprisingly successful a strategy. Not many other players taking to the air though, sadly, but there are A.I. chaps flying about.

It's a shame really, as I would like to buy this - for me, in recent years, a Star Wars movie has meant coming back to the UK for Christmas, so this game would have been a good way of getting hyped for that.

And the original game, while lacking in content at the start, was expanded with DLC, which is going to be free this time around.

I don't normally buy games on release but would have been tempted to, to capitalise on that hype. But I'm not going to pay £50 for a game that isn't complete in content without an arbitrary, enforced grind designed to push players towards in-game transactions.

Can't even bloody play most of the original game either as it's dead. Aren't EA turning the servers off too?

The original was pretty active all this year up to now, but EA will likely announce the old game's server closure soon, I have no doubt of that.

Had a pretty intense battle on Starkiller Base just now. I played a Resistance officer throughout, except for when I tried my hand as Rey briefly (and unsuccessfully). We got so close to winning, but ran out of people. Great battle though, very intense, lots of kills all round. :) Very satisfying stuff.

Edit: Just tried my hand at Starfighter Assault - it's every bit as fun as the Beta. I did hear Han Solo, upon entering the battlefield in the Falcon, say "This is where the fun begins" though. :dread:
