Developers now care more about monetizing the game than making a good game. Zelda is a good game,destiny,is not. Everything in these games they charge for could easily be in the game as a reward.
I would argue that developers care about making good games. It's publishers that insist they monetize the shit out of things.

Nah, it's more important to attack the developers and the players. They're the real evil ones.

wait till friday when the cheaters show up with their aimbots, I understand that the game doesn't have any anti-cheat on the PC.

not that you really need an aimbot.

The game really rewards accuracy actually. Just cause there's a powerful sniper ability doesn't break that fact. Headshots are everything. And trying to hit the fucking prequel droids is borderline infuriatingly hard, and feels satisfying when you nail them in the head at range.

Haven't seen any aimbots yet, I'm sure they will show up.

You shouldn't be able to one shot people in their spawn.

AAA map design

Also, have you even watched the video you linked? The specialist heavy rifle is a 1HK with a headshot only, it's a 2-shot anything else.

I am enjoying it, thank you. Lootboxes or not, it's a pretty fun well-made game.

And for every example of a starcard that gives you an actual advantage, there's 10 that do nothing. there's 300 total. I assume that the ones that are useful will get nerfed.

There's plenty of cards that give you say +% longer effect on shock grenade, but COOLDOWN ALSO GETS LONGER.

You'd never know that from only listening to the people crying about the progression.

Facts are your friend.

Also, the shotgun isn't always a 1HK, and if you whiff your first shot you're basically fucked. I use the submachinegun type weapon on assault, and I've stopped using shotguns altogether, as i can manage this gun a lot better.

The ability to purchase crystals in-game will become available at a later date

please buy our game, we'll screw you over later.

Isn't it a bit late anyway, all those that already paid to be OP will ruin the experience for new players.

I bought some boxes, because I have disposable income and no dependants, so whatever.

I spent all my scrap on a couple tier 3 passives for the assault kit, and got mostly commons for everything else. Still missing about 70% of any form of card for troopers.

The assault is all I really use, so +13% extra battlepoints, and +10% less cooldown before heath regen kicks in. There's no +HP cards, so one vanguard still kills almost anything, and you still geto +200% battlepoints for playing with your squad, which dwarfs my P2W +13%

So, for anyone who cares about numbers and facts, there you go. I spent money, and I don't have much to show for it.

I think its more cause of Belgium investigating alleged gambling charges, which would fuck up their FIFA lootbox scheme.

No reason they couldn't just have done paid lootboxes for skins, SW fans would pay a shit ton for that.

Also I hope this doesn't impact their post launch content support, as they've never committed to X number of new maps, heroes, etc.

Video highlighting the dev responses that looked promising.

You'd never get that from visiting the reddit, that place is such a cesspool. They downvoted every dev comment into oblivion so it's hard to even find the responses :/

That's nice and all but none of that is going to be relevant, it's pretty easy to make a bold prediction that this game will suffer the same player falloff curve as the last one. The main game mode isn't as deep as say Rush from Bad Company 2. There's some scripted destruction but nothing that's dynamic. People are already backing out of Hoth and not playing it, making something authentic to the cinematic scene doesn't transfer into good gameplay.

I expect them to lower a nerf hammer onto the game, grenades and the shotgun for example. As usual with DICE games they're fun at the start but then they cave to the cry babies and ruin the gameplay.

Some galactic assault maps are REALLY well done. I haven't played them all yet, Jakku and Hoth seem to be the bad ones. But for instance the Wookiee home planet one is crazy good: 3 phases, first being walker-assault-ish that goes on for a good 10 minutes, I mean it's like a 2 kilometre stretch of beachhead that the droids have to push up, well into the marsh, then to a clone trooper base. then 2 more phases, all in all extremely impressive.

My major gripe is that the prequel droids are REALLY hard to see :/

I think (hope) no one else here but you was retarded enough to support that POS game with a purchase.

However, I checked the GeForce forums for issues with this driver and several folks reported decreased performance in SWBF2.

It also seems to have a general green screen flickering issue regardless of what game is played.

I'm going to stay on 387.92 until they fix the 388.xx branch issues.

Oh fuck off. I think there's a subreddit with 100,000 people of a like mind with you, you'd be happier posting there.

I like the game, it's really fun, and they've fixed just about everything that was wrong with SWBF 2015.

Fuck me for enjoying a game. If you want to go after the evil developers, then have at it, attacking players is just retarded.

EA, how about copying some Ubi work for a Star Wars: FarCry? Spanning different planets? Sorry, I forgot: single-player. Right, you are not about storytelling.

Man, I wish I hadn't been right back when Disney announced they sold the SW license to EA.

There's an SP campaign in SWBF2. Not sure what your point is. It's just a traditional linear narrative-driven campaign, not an open-world romp like the FC series.

What in the world did you grind to unlock co-op characters or missions? Do you mean abilities when you leveled them up? Even if that is the case you are pretty far off. With the first win of the day bonus that has been around forever now, leveling those is trivial.

You had to grind some kind of gem or crystal to unlock more heroes if you didn't own all 3 campaigns.

The uproar over this is a bit ridiculous...I mean even a shitty loot system is better than spending 70$ on a season pass where the DLCs divide the player base.

I've played the beta plus the 10h trial and I don't think it's as bad as people say...again tho, I'm comparing this versus a season pass.

I'd much rather they put in a season pass than put in gambling, but it's not an either/or situation. They both suck.

Is this gambling? I thought this was just a grinding system.

It is a grinding system. And for those of us who actually bought packs, you barely get shit from them, so that part feels like gambling... sorta. But really it's just a trap for weak0minded people who don't want to grind, and who are looking for shortcuts.

The hilarious thing is they think that a few star cards will somehow make them better players...

Weak minded people? Or do you perhaps mean hard working people? Hard working people with a life? If what I'm reading is right, you need 40 hours to unlock particular stuff that gives you an advantage in-game. 40 fucking hours. Once in a blue moon I manage to put 40 hours into a game before the passage of weeks has me lose interest.

So fuck off, Slick, with your black-and-white, shallow opinions. Think. Think again. Think for a third time. THEN post. Cheers.

LOL.

So you expect to never grind for any unlocks in any game because you work a 40-hour job?

Entitled much.

And a cunt much. Don't have time for twats like you in my life, IGNORED.

I like Blizzard's cheeky tweet about how their campaign is fully unlocked after 0 hours of grind, also all co-op missions are unlocked after 0 hours of grind.

When they're talking about a 5-year old game, which ABSOLUTELY had grind to unlock all of the co-op characters/missions.

"hero with no abilities" regarding unlocking the SP hero Iden

I don't know what you guys are talking about.

This is what happens when bad information gets out into the hands of an angry mob...

All heroes have all "abilities" unlocked, the only star cards for heroes are strictly for passive buffs like bonus dmg to immobilized targets +10 (that's +10 dmg, not %), 10% less stamina drain on basic attacks etc. etc. etc.

And Luke and Vader are totally side-grades to Rey and Kylo, with the unique melee heroes being Maul and Yoda.

ANYWAYS. All the overpriced +10 upgrades in the world won't make a damned difference if you're on a bad team. The game is genuinely hard to just run around and Rambo. Teamplay = OP.

so on the fence...

BF2 is fun and looks amazing, scratches the 2142 itch for me, but awkwardly steps away from Battlefield, as an example land and space battles being separate matches when i think it would be better to have it all together. i guess we would now be on star citizens turf from a technical perspective, and people might even complain if it played more like a skinned Battlefield 1 where you found hero kits on the battlefield and vehicles were spawn points.

what really is odd is stripping out the squad stuff from Battlefield when Star Wars lore is all about squads and groups of friends, a really strange direction that makes no sense, but i guess these changes likely serve their stupid star card system or its an attempt to distance themselves from Battlefield.

if you could cross Dice's Battlefield gameplay with Respawns Titanfall 2 progression and handling of DLC (free to everyone and selling cosmetics) BF2 would easily be a 10/10.

with a leftover giftcard and Prime 20% off preorder im in for $32, a good deal, i guess im just a bit concerned what happens after this shitstorm, will the game expand or contract? not to mention the EA merry-go-round means this game might be redundant in 1 year and Battlefront 3 might be the only one worth owning.

also wanted to mention: some circle jerker on r/starcitizen has a thread going about how thankful he/she is about starcitizen with regards to this debacle, i thought i might mention here: does starcitizen share some of the blame? people sinking $1000's into that game it only makes sense game makers want some of that action, amirite?

So the squad thing I'm starting to understand.

When you spawn, you spawn with up to 3 other people, it's basically a makeshift fireteam. And if you stay in proximity to each other you get battlepoints a lot faster. I haven't tested out if VoIP works within that squad thing yet, but for the moment most people just fuck off and lone wolf immediately. But I think once players start figuring out that it's a good idea to stick together we'll see more teamplay.

It's just a new mechanic that I don't think I've ever seen before in a game, so people haven't gotten used to it yet.
