Re: Star Wars Battlefront II... it's happening, not that you ever doubted it

Feel like I'm getting the hang of the multiplayer. I'm not good, but I'm getting better. Less running and running and more strategy.

It would help to get to know the maps better, though I don't see a way to choose a particular map or team, really. Hard to get to know it. After such complex server systems in Battlefield lately, it's as if this system is too oversimplified.

Do hits in different places matter? There's no one-shot headshot kills here, correct? Does it drain life faster?

story, I don't think it matters where you hit the opponent - which is a crock. I've hit opponents for over "200 damage" and they didn't die --- which is a total pain when you're going for 500 Specialist kills. Loving the MP but until you play "smart", it can be very frustrating.

I haven't earned any credits for my last four matches. What gives?!

I have heard about that and I experienced the issue with not being able to claim rewards when completeing milestones; that made me stop playing the game altogether until I hear it is fixed.

Re: Star Wars Battlefront II... it's happening, not that you ever doubted it

Yeah, it happens. I had persevered and achieved 400 kills as a specialist to get the top sniper rifle... only to not be able to claim it for almost two weeks. Something happened and it was available early last week --- as well as some sort of "apology" crate from the devs (4000 credits and other useless/duplicate shit). I hear another patch is coming Tuesday next week... big changes to all the Heroes and Villains as well as gameplay fixes. Not sure it matters... I play from time to time but it's a grind to get the "best" guns.

Rumor: Ubisoft / Activision potentially getting future SW work

Lol, EA really fucked themselves with their bullshit schemes (not that Ubi/Acti is much better when it comes to that shit).

Hasn't Respawn been working on a SW game for some time now? Since they are now owned by EA, that would suck if they lost that. Titanfall 2 was fucking awesome.

I'm probably the only person playing here but new patch today... fixes a lot of bugs, fixes the Heroes and Villains, adds a jetpack game mode among other things.

Re: Star Wars Battlefront II... it's happening, not that you ever doubted it

Picked this up for $30 from Target on Sunday. Pretty fun game despite the controversy. Iíve only been playing the campaign so far. Might dive into multiplayer later. One complaint, the load times are horrendous (Iím playing it on One so not sure if itís all versions). Seems like when you first boot up the game it takes it a while to get going and gets a bit better as you go but itís still fairly slow. Also needed an 18GB update right off the bat which was pretty annoying.

Load times are the worst part of the game... It's fine for what it is, but not stellar by any means. Han Solo content is right around the corner so that might bring me back for a week or two. I need to finish the SP campaign... it's not half bad.

Yeah, I havenít played it a ton yet but it is fun so far. I just got to the third mission where you play as Luke. I didnít know it was going to change like that and figured Iíd just be that Imperial girl (canít recall her name) the entire time.

Re: Star Wars Battlefront II... it's happening, not that you ever doubted it

I was real hot and heavy with this when it first came out. Bought it twice at retail price back then. I only played maybe half of the single player, but went nuts for multiplayer.

I haven't really played it since they dropped the last environment and heroes. Maybe with Solo coming out they'll add some new content, but if it's just a reskin of the Han and Lando heros, then I'll pass. But if they added a new environment for conquest (or whatever the big one is), I'd jump back in for a minute.
