The game is made for babies after all. They require hand holding every step of the way.

Some of us are just too damn old to get down on the floor and play with action figures, that's what this game is.. virtual action figures.

they even have a thing where you unlock a pictorial diorama of "toys" in the game, that's their word for it too, "toys".

I can see them blocking off areas where people were able to get to but really shouldn't, up top around the ion cannon.

I imagine they'll also prevent imperials from using the rebel turrets, change the spawn points some and fix the issue where the speeder quicktime event can result in crashing into a rock, but that's about it.

anyone expecting wide sweeping changes like a server browser or changing the two man squad system to four or five people, that's not going to happen.

Out of curiosity, which registry hack do you use to do a clean install with an upgrade version of 7? I still have an upgrade version of 7 lying around, wouldn't mind reinstalling it on an old box.

Thanks

I used these instructions when I did mine

I've had good luck with getting activation keys from here

but do you all join on the same team? there's no way to switch teams, at least in the beta.

My favorite news about the game that shows their idiocy. They've said that the game will not have in-game voice-chat. They said there's enough third party software if you want to chat with your friends... of course there's a problem with this logic. I can only join the game with ONE friend. The rest of the team is fucking random!

It's an anti clan game, no pub stomping allowed. You can't have a bunch of guys in teamspeak saying everyone join on x server and then team stacking the hell out of it.

I've been there done that, it's fun but unfair as fuck for the other team getting their shit pushed in.

It's also anti e-sport which I'm fine with as well.

For all the supposed play testing and focus group feedback they've been doing (for the past six months at least) it's rather surprising how unbalanced and broken the gameplay was in the game. Even the pod drop game mode saw the rebels at a disadvantage with seemingly spawning them much further away from the objective than the empire side.

are you kidding me!?

first of all the pod drops are RANDOM, so no side has an "advantage", oh also the level is the size of a shoe box.

second, the default skins the rebels wear blends in PERFECTLY with that level, meanwhile the stormtroopers with their pure white "camo" stick out like a sore thumb. The rebels has a distinct advantage in that respect. no more 3D spotting remember? no one comments on how great THAT is. nor the fast spawns, the fast regen, or anything else that makes FPS games FUN.

i swear... did half of you even play the game?

The pod drops are at set points around the map, the only random thing is which one is picked.

When you were killed trying to defend the pod as a rebel you spawned further away from the objective than the corresponding imperial trooper. I played plenty of Pod Drop and that's the way it felt to me, I always felt that when playing as a storm trooper I had an easier time at winning the round. It would be interesting to see the statistical data on it.

Another omission that hopefully will be fixed in final is the ability to pick a teammate, if the game didn't auto assign you to someone then you couldn't choose another person if that player left the game or you weren't assigned a teammate to begin with.

Most people were really clueless about how the mode was played, they didn't seem to know that the pod opened up after capture and deployed power ups.

It was my favorite mode in the beta, not looking forward to kill streak cards though. If they have call of duty perks like call down a probe droid after 10 kill streak or crap like that, ugh.

I was shocked to find that playing on the PS4 was just as hard as playing on the pc.

Were you playing the game in 3rd person view, if not then there's your answer. They only put the first person view in as a checkbox item, the game is 110% a 3rd person shooter.

pre-ordered it for $45 off GMG

no rahgrets

There are no refunds for game codes. At least if you preorder from Steam you have the option to get a refund.

Actually EA had their refund system in place before Steam. You have to make your request within the first 24 hours of launching the game in the first seven days of the game's release. You could essentially play the game for 20+ hours and then go "nope, don't want it".

General consensuses: Thanks for letting us play the "demo" looking forward to Fallout 4

For all the supposed play testing and focus group feedback they've been doing (for the past six months at least) it's rather surprising how unbalanced and broken the gameplay was in the game. Even the pod drop game mode saw the rebels at a disadvantage with seemingly spawning them much further away from the objective than the empire side.

Somebody not spending ten minutes to add in an out of bounds blocking volume to the top section of the walker assault map where you had players able to jetpack to the top of the ion cannon and literally spawn kill the enemy was another head shaking moment.

Hiding behind the "it's beta" label doesn't cut it because this was their one chance to get the attention of nine million potential customers.

Once you get over the Star Wars nostalgia and take a good look at the game it's going to lack long term replayability, maybe that's all intentional as the shelf life of multiplayer games are getting shorter and shorter.

Some people loved it, some people will still pick it up because it's "Star Wars" and undoubtedly even more will pick it up because of the massive hype around the new movie. Maybe they can redeem themselves by fixing all the glaring gameplay issues, if you were turned off by the casualness of it all then I wouldn't expect anything to change it that regard.

I love the "DLC shortages" writeup. Buy now before it's sold out!

Unfortunately this game is a poorly done licensed game which is the equivalent of virtual whack-a-mole. Dead on arrival.

I find your lack of faith in the hype of all things Star Wars disturbing.

This game is all over the map, futuristic sci-fi for the military shooter part and 1930's for the zombie mode.

Pricing:
http://starwars.ea.com/starwars/battlefront/buy

$60 for SW:BF Base-Game only.
$70 for SW:BF Base-Game Deluxe Ed.
$50 for Season Pass.
$120 for Ultimate Edition (SW:BF Base-Game Deluxe Ed. + Season Pass).

Yeah, I'll wait for it to brick down quite a bit before I purchase.

so if you can live without a deluxe edition emote, then it's $110 for the base game, and all the expansions. that's so weird! so deserving of it's own thread! because you know every battlefield game for the last 15 years has been the exact same thing. $110 for base game and all expansions.

I might be wrong but I think BF3 and BF4 had 5 map packs for the same $50 premium price. BF Hardline started the 4 map packs for $50.

I am having the same issue. Is it just bad ping?

I'm not an expert on net code, but typically lag followed by instant death happens when you're playing on a server with players who have a much lower ping than you. The simple solution is to allow players to search for servers by ping, but that's not an option with this game. It needs a server browser badly. Otherwise it's just a casual game where your skill is nothing but luck.

Still finding it weird that there's not more people complaining about this.

With the floodgates open for the free demo there's no problem finding games, retail experience might be a little different.

Didn't see anything about the number of bots in Battles mode, even though some of the other modes have bots in them I don't think they're even playable solo with bots.

The way they purposely obscure player numbers means that you would be taking a huge gamble on buying DLC for this game, which the way it's going might be hard pressed to have just the base game filled with players beyond the three week flash of the initial rush of people playing regularly.

The matchmaking actually is quite fast for connecting you to a server but this is also during a free beta, with no way of knowing the health of the community you might end up with another Titanfall on your hands.

Yep, the art if pretty top shelf but all of the behind the scenes looks at the people coding the game leave me with very little confidence.

Did they build up that set or was this held in some sort of aircraft museum?

From day one I never understood youtube and the fact that they hosted the videos for free let alone allowed everyone to watch them for free. I know there's ads on there (if you don't use an adblock program) but still.
