News Comments > More Star Wars Battlefront Beta Servers
11. Re: More Star Wars Battlefront Beta Servers Oct 9, 2015, 14:08 The Half Elf
 
Reposting this from yesterday.
Ok here is my list.

The Good:
Sounds like, looks like, feels like Star Wars.

The Bad:
No server browser, so no custom servers, no ability to kick afk'ers.
Once a match is over you go back to a setup screen which looks like you've gone back to the main menu, but the game is still being played which is causing players to go AFK while the server is technically full, which results in matchs of 4 people vs 8.
No webpage to do all the nifty stuff from BF3 and BF4.
No set rolls for players. You want to be a pilot? Run around until you see a powerup icon on the ground for a ship, collect it, then use it to go to the ship, or AT-AT or AT-ST.
AT-AT has no controls on going forward or backwards beyond swiveling the head. And the cone of fire sucks horribly. An orbital strike cannot be fired anywhere in this cone. and makes for trying to get enemy players a pain in the ass if they aren't in that cone.
Random spawn points unless you have a partner.
The range on weapons (at least right now) is fucking ludicrous as I was hitting ships with my pistol literally from halfway across the map.

Again, beautiful levels, models, fx, sounds music, but the core gameplay is utter console Xbox Live Arcade shit. It makes Battlefront 1 and 2 look like Battlefield 2142, and this Battlefront look like Serious Sam.

Um in the video they say it's 1 to 2 hours long?!?
And how exactly do you connect to 18-30 year old male demographic playing as a mother looking for their son?

I was really hoping for "Car Wars" / "Auto Duel" not "a World of Tanks clone".

Still waiting for a Interstate 76 mod for Mad Max.

Instead of crying about other people's games, how about Smart go make another crap game like Battlecruiser?

At least Derek has made a few games, not to say Robert's hasn't, but so far Star Citizen is a bunch of tech demos.

Run well but some major design bullshit.

So say you join a 16 or 40 man server, you can be AFK at the loadout screen and will end up with 1 team being down 3 people because they are AFK. Well the server won't auto balance it because it's still showing as a full server.

40 man servers are cluster fucks. Personally I love the full large conquest maps with say 16 people max. There is no way to set that up.

As I said in the youtube comments:

Dear Russia, you have some amazingly talented and beautiful people.

But there we so many 'look alikes' in that video it's rather amazing.

Actually it looks like you have as much room as you did in Battlefield maps, but then again you don't have people flying off from the combat.

We will find out tomorrow.

In my experience new drives (game specific or not) have improved game performance (for the most part) and would still be worth installing.

Ok that snake story is the batshit crazy stuff that happens here in Northern Kentucky.

I'd go burn the place down with napalm, but being 5 mins away I am NOT DEALING WITH FUCKING REPTILES RUNNING LOOSE! Bad enough we had lions, tigers and bears running around a few years ago.

Yes but you also have to remember it was shown off a PS4 which has 'soft auto aim'

Free demo, I'm excited

Give the art assets to High Moon and let them make a game out of it. War of/Fall of Cybertron were rock solid.

Problem was the multiplayer coding was shit and the game modes in multiplayer were limited because the game was locked down and had no level editor.

It's the Unreal engine, multiplayer was/is fine.

Here's a photo of a Corgi dressed up as a spaceship.

I think that photo will break the internet.

Actually that is a corgi cos-playing Serenity from Firefly.
