Couple of things that bother me (hope they can be turned off). Starlines (debris from the Xwing Series), the vapor trails on the ships, and a Xwing with a beam weapon?
Hmm, who knows. Even so, it wouldn't be a game-wide thing. I think vapor trails are kind of cheaty for a space game tbh.
The one major thing that bums me out really is just the 5v5 thing. I'm trying to wrap my head around why? Maybe they think there won't be enough interest to get servers populated or something. Surely whatever engine that is (frostbyte?) can handle more as it does for Battlefront 2 and Battlefield 5.
Anyways here's a list of other craft missing from the old x-wing/tie games or other games/sources/comics/etc.:Imperials
Alpha-class Xg-1 Star Wing (Imperial Assault Gunboat)
Missile Boat (successor to the Star Wing)
TIE Avenger or TIE/ad 'Advanced' (improved production version of Vader's X1, flown by Imperial Ace Maarek Stele)
TIE Phantom (technically dual seater)
TIE Vanguard (Recon)
TIE/sr Starfighter (Recon)Rebels
BTL-S3 Y-Wing variant (2 seater), top mounted Ion Cannon can rotate in all directions
BTL-A4 Y-Wing LP (recon)
R-22 Spearhead (a-wing prototype)
N-1 Starfighter (if there will be Naboo map)
YT-1300 (support, 2 turrets)
YT-2000 (support, 2 turrets)
YT-2400 (support, 2 turrets)
With only 5v5 they are kinda missing out on making multi-seated craft too, which would pretty cool just being a turret gunner while someone flies like in BFV.
