So I went to the main site to find videos on the game, because I want a larger scale FPS.. not like Planetside, but larger than BF4..so I was hyped.

I couldnt find any videos on the main page, there's no "media" link with good promo vids.. now I know why. I went to their forums to a video subsection, to user posted videos.. and the game looks like it's 10yrs old, with 20yr old animations.

Will anyone ever make a larger scale slightly future
ish FPS at all.. ugh.

Almost every review I've seen ends with major concern about longevity beyond a few weeks, as this game is far too simple, featureless and casual.

BF4 is the only FPS I am enjoying at the moment.
Sad that I want to like Star Wars, but it's so super casual..and I am too slow these days for CoD (I tried.. I suck badly)

Sometimes we fight around here as if we all don't have the same gaming goals.. it's rather disheartening. I honestly think us PC gamers here at Blues should be better people.. we're more informed, we're game-smarter, we're critical when we need to be.. etc. I think we're too harsh on each other. I think we lose sight on what's important and resort to name calling.

Anyhow, I will report back this weekend on how the game runs on my new rig.. hoping it works. I had to buy the game just to support a developer that has come out and made statements like they did regarding mapping, modding, the server browser...

All I wanted was for Epic to come back and make a kickass FPS.. and I am thinking this is a MOBA FPS hybrid. go away.

Look, I know we here are more game-smart, more in touch with the real gaming world, we're elitists.. we all pretty much know better. I get it, we're smarter gamers. With that being said, I HAVE to support this game because of what they are trying to do, how they are going to try to support the PC platform. Will it work, who knows, but I love the attempt. Sure we've been burned before, I get it..

But I am going to give them a try.

I really think CoD is made for ADD-having console dummies. It's constant flare, sparkle, splash, ..throw everything at the gamer and make it nonstop and I mean NONSTOP action. Dont let the gamer think for a second, it's 100% go go go.. tactics? Screw those!

I wish it would be a better franchise.

I have been very vocal on reddit as a staunch opponent to the current state of this game.. in terms of features.

1. 20 vs 20 is not a battle, the damn PS4 ad even makes it look like there's a huge battle on Hoth, there isn't. The Battlefront2 game had 32 vs 32 and NPCs playing as well. That was a battle.

2. No dedicated servers. How the hell did we have dedicated servers 10 year ago for the previous title, but not this one now? I suppose griefers and jerks will ruin peoples fun in this game. I have played enough Battlefield 4 to know griefers exist, and on non-adminned servers, this is going to be a pain in the ass. There are still people playing on modded BF2 servers to this day. Modding and dedicated servers arent here though.

really? the instaspawn 20v20 rush map wasn't intense enough for you? 40 people on a battlefield rush map is too much, even with 15 second respawns...

and you're the only greifer I see here, there are obviously dedicated servers. you think that a 40 person server is running on *some guy*'s lightning fast i3 computer with a 200 ping like ever P2P game ever invented? oh wait, it's that other thing...

Sweetie.. there's no Conquest mode with 32 vs 32.. like there was 10 years ago in Battlefront 2. You're equating the size with the map, as if Hoth couldnt be made bigger to support 32 players per side and NPCs? They've done it before.

Do you not understand what true PC gamers consider a dedicated server? It's rentable, admin-controlled by clans or people.. the gamers run it, not the company. We admin and put the variables as we see fit. That's what I am talking about. Are you new to PC gaming?

This iteration has less content and features.. it went backwards.

I'm sorry guys, I had no idea Slick was just the typical teenage console moron troll.. I'll not entertain him any longer. I thought we here at Blues weeded out the dummies?

Okay, so whenever a PC gamer says "dedicated servers" you know what we mean, right? We mean servers we can rent or own and admin ourselves. How do you suppose to build a good community whenever it's random server time for all?
BF4 has adminned servers, why can't Battlefront? A later iteration of the same sort of game and we're looking at less features. I have favorited servers in BF4 because they had great maps, game types, and good people with active admins making sure we're all playing a fun game.. Battlefront will not have that.

You mention the sniper, well aside from a sniper, what about a heavy weapons guy? An engineer? Some sort of medic or defensive player? it all fits within the canon, but they went with a card system and limited possibilities which are stuck with you in game (for now) and possibly you unlock one other build later. That's weak.

The powerup system is awful. For one, with classes and actual vehicle spawns, we don't need it. Maybe instead of a powerup, it's something accrued over time over the battle? The current system stinks and this game has zero PC longevity.

Modding and dedicated servers arent here though.

3. No classes. Who the hell thought this was a good idea? Let's remove the classes in favor of throwaway 1-time use powerups we have to pick up. Better hope people aren't camping those power up spawns. Repair items, nope. Be a heavy weps guy for anti vehicles..not a chance. It's very watered down in terms of loadouts.

4. Here's a huge AT AT.. one guy pilots it though, no room for others at all.. not in transport, not nothing. Oh, and he raced to the beginning to get the power up so he could pilot it.

5. Wanna fly? better hope you get a power up! Can't just have the regulars running to the hangers to get an X Wing and take to the air.. because nobody who is a SW fan likes flying space ships. I put a lot of time in the small window of the beta, and got 3 ships total. I also only got 1 hero (Vader) but it bugged out on me.

6. Space battles? Nope, can't have those either!

7. There is absolutely zero teamwork options built into the game. No commander type person, no telling your team to attack an objective or defend something.. nothing.

8. The spawning system sucks. It spawned me away from anywhere useful more often than not, and generally in the worst places possible.. and no, you cant choose where to spawn, because you're not an adult gamer.

I swear to GabeN, that aside from sound and visuals, this game has gone backwards in EVERY POSSIBLE WAY!! It's very pretty and sounds amazing..aside from that, it's embarrassing how backwards this game went with regards to features and mechanics.

This is is 100% catered to casuals who will play the game for 2 months, then opt out for whatever shiny new BS comes out next. This game has no long term shelf life imho.

I find it's strange that they care about your system specs but do not allow you to enter anything other than the country you're in in the platform you're planning on.

I know I am in the minority here, but I want this game to be as awesome as the devs envision. I want this game to succeed. I don't see how this game failing or picking on the devs or badmouthing this title at every turn helps our hobby? The financial backing has been great, and I would love to see this method used again for another awesome title because there's a nice freedom to how this title came about.

Additionally, I have other games to play between today and whenever this title goes live. I could see if SC was the ONLY game out there, and by not delivering a full product yet, we're all sitting on our thumbs with nothing to do.. but that's not the case.

Time for MGS and some of the SW beta.

I don't normally wish for this stuff, but D. Smart sounds like a whiny child who is upset someone else is getting attention in his "genre" and he's throwing a tantrum.

He honestly needs the piss beat out of him. I would love to see him at a convention and just getting his punk ass drug up and down the aisles while getting whipped. i know if I worked on SC, i might have to pay Ms. Smart a visit and tune him the hell up. That whiny little punk ass bitch. Just let it go, you gaming diva.
