Finally won a Walker mode game as REbels...I also finally get how it works too.

its pretty easy if you know how it goes.

use the ATGAR turrets and the a-wings/snowspeeder when the shields are off. dont just shot your stupid blaster on it.

ion weapons and orbital strikes are nice aswell.

i would say you have a 40% chance if you know what you have to do.

Is'nt that in a sense unfair then? 40% chance if you know what to do. If you don't, near zero. I know in the film Empire win and I guess Rebels winning in not in continuity but still... should be 50/50 from the start.



Hmm, pie.

Played it yesterday and today and have to say that they nailed the Star Wars Feeling. I'm also pretty impressed with the graphical optimization. As some already noticed, the game looks really good but i never had any slowdowns playing on maximum settings. Battlefield 4 was really bad in that regard (don't know about BF: Hardline).

As someone who has never played a Battlefront game before, i find the gameplay to be quite good. Weapon handling feels good. It's pretty satisfying to shoot someone in the head with the sniper rifle from a long distance (thanks to good sound design) and the map (i only played Hoth up until now) isn't bad.

What i don't like about the game is the respawn points. I had so many issues with other players spawn-killing me, it's not even funny. - And i just played about 3 hours or so. DICE really needs to fix that somehow.
They should also add some kind of marker for your friends (like the partner whose name is colored yellow) so you can actually coordinate your movements and actions with them. ATM, names of your friends who are not your partner are the same color as the other names.

I like the general feel of the game, especially the arcade-y aspects that DICE couldn't use in Battlefield games.

Will probably buy the game but not at the release.

I havn't enjoyed it at all. Reminded me more of Cod than Battlefield. Just running around, no cover, no thought. Enjoyed the R6 Siege beta loads more. Will go for that this xmas..



I don´t know if I´m too old or too young for this game. I have no strong nostalgic feeling toward SW, and I realy enjoyed most of the "new" trilogy.

I´m thorned with this dem... I mean, beta. I think I will enjoy it a little next year when it is added to EAA Valt.

IMO they have to fix those problems.

They have to fix the music volume and pacing. It has anything to do with the point the battle is and is quite anoying.

Ranking also seems out of place. I can do nothing of intesting for the first 10 games other than running and gunning.

More features on the maps: they all look like a lunar surfice without any noticible landmarks.

More close quarters encounters. I rearely get face to face with another player. Only long hange combate makes me feel disconected and disengaged from the combate.

its a bad choice for a demo, but asymetric maps are fine, for experienced players.

 

quick question, does anybody have huge lags at the start of the game on pc? just the first 30s of a match, the game lags like hell.



The beta has been extended and now ends on Oct. 13.



It is really funny but I think everyone should drop the expectation of it being like the older games. This is a more modern, MP centric experience that has a fantastic Star Wars atmosphere. I will most likely pick it up later in December when I've gotten my Halo 5 dosage :).



Really tired of you anti-EA hipsters who hate it just because it's EA.

I find your general complains moot. Who cares about a campaign? I bought BF4 just to play online. I never touched the campaign. These campaigns haven't been up to par anyway since the original MW.

I liked this beta and I'm going to preorder it.

its not more mp centric, they just cheaped out.  nobody is asking for a real campaign, just some missions on the normal mp maps with bots, and galactic conquest. thats like 2 weeks of work for a small team.

and modern? you mean casual, not modern.  UT 2015 alpha beta is modern, made with the community for the community, with a smart and fresh system of generating revenue.
