Congrats on the maxed rank, Greedo! I was pleasantly surprised to find a Leia crate waiting on me when I got on to play a little yesterday evening after work. I knew without doubt the community would pull it off; it's the speed in which they achieved it that is pleasantly surprising. I really hope EA thinks something along the lines of "Wow! Great! Players really responded to this! Let's try it more often with additional skins!" And it wouldn't have to be just hero skins; either. I'd likely play for two days without end for a TIE Pilot skin.

Heck of an achievement greedo. That takes dedication, and a lot of patience against Officer trolls, HvV trolls, spawn point trolls, etc. :grin:

Every time I start to enjoy some aspect of this game, they release a patch and nerf it. I'm still mad about the ion rockets. It sucked having to lose a grenade slot, but at least there was something you could do against AT-STs and those jerks who strafe-kill the whole match.

After such a long wait I found the Droideka a little underwhelming...
Eh, they're okay. Nothing fantastic. In the right circumstances/situations they can be potential power houses as can the other classes if utilized correctly and with tact; it's the overall lack of speed which hinders the Droideka in my opinion. Even when rolling; they're easy to take out.

Going to give the Felucia map a whirl tonight, I've heard good things.

Never liked it as much as Battlefront I, but did get several opportunities to play as a clone commando.

Took a break from BFII after the events for the Hero Hoth Gear appearances, quite some time I figure and I completly lost track.

Anyway, just accidently hit the still installed game button ( PC ) and its now downloading some big amount of GB´s, already curious what to await
Are there any infos, if they will include IX condent or from The Mandalorian ?
Any plans for yet another chapter for the single player campaign ?

no new single player but there are new Clone Wars maps that make the game run laggy :(

I think the Felucia map is okay. I'd like to see the dead Rancor and so on; I haven't found it yet. Only played the map a couple of times, though.
Frankly, I'll be glad when all the CW updates and content and such is behind us. I'm not saying I dislike it; it's just the other eras and factions are grossly without representation compared to how many skins the Clones have. We've been given a lot of good stuff; skins and maps and so on; but I want the other factions to have a little of the limelight as well; that's all.
I'm hesitantly excited about the upcoming Rise of Skywalker content. No clue what it will be yet; but I'm sure we'll get a new map, a couple new Hero skins and a couple new Trooper skins; in Sith color schemes no doubt. What I REALLY want are the Knights of Ren to get some representation. A new class and all six Knight skins would be epic; but we'll probably just get a revamped Enforcer option; if EA does anything with the Knights at all.

Forget to mention I do really enjoy the new Co-Op Mode. I wish it extended to more maps/eras but it's enjoyable and so easy to level up Heroes it almost feels like cheating; lol. There's something nostalgic about this mode; takes me back to the original PS2 Battlefronts and the countless hours a friend and I invested in them.

^ I'll have to check that mode out. Sounds fun!

I just played a GA match and one of the opposing players was playing as a level 267 Obi-Wan. 267. He absolutely dominated from start to finish. The rest of his team sucked, but he just met us at choke points and spawn points and held us back in those areas. He just seemed to be everywhere at once. I understand it's takes a freakish amount of skill to get to a level like that, but it's these high end gamers like that who ruin a match. If you're that good, go play in a league or something that really puts your skill to the test. Don't be showboating against average gamers all day. :rolleyes:

Nothing spoils a game/match faster than trolls like that. What a sleaze.

I agree they needed to cap the levels because of that. Some of us do not live on the game.
If you want to level up fast; try the Co-Op Mode. It was during the Triple XP event, granted; but I leveled Anakin up five levels in a sixteen minute match.

Played Co-Op mode yesterday and it's a lot of fun. It's a nice little mode for when you just want to shoot things up. It's like Blast but with more purpose.

I hope more maps are added to it. It would be nice to have all eras represented and not just the prequels. Endor, the Death Star II, the abandon Rebel bunker on Crait, Tatooine, Hoth, all of these make great Co-Op maps.

Glad to see a couple new OT skins in the last little update. I sure won't complain, but I would have preferred X-Wing Luke over Yavin Ceremony Luke. Also glad they changed the default Clone Rocket Trooper to a 501st appearance.

I've been playing a lot of GA recently. It's funny, after being gone for so long and then coming back you'd think I would play as my go-to class (Specialist) but ever since returning I almost always play as Heavy and honestly I've never played better. I guess some time away from the game was good. I still do play as Specialist depending on the map, but I'm all about the Heavy now.

How many of you have Fallen Order on order? I have a feeling the BFII community will take a big drop when it is released. I have it ordered and will definitely be playing it regularly, but will still play BFII to stay sharp.

Surprising myself; I haven't been too thrilled or pumped about Fallen Order. Not sure why! It's definitely not on my radar (but no game is, at the moment). Not sure my poor PS4 could handle it anyway. With Battlefront II, Red Dead Redeption 2, Fallout 4, Kingdom Hearts 3 and Plants vs Zombies all taking up space; I'm likely looking at an external setup before new games.
