if you mean "have they added half a game worth of content" then no
>>
>>323485068
Never thought it was shit to begin with. Just casual. Purposely casual for a wider audience. Nothing wrong with that. Just play other games if you don't like it.
>>
>>323485068
It's not really that it's shit, it's just got no depth because it's a casual game.

It's fun, but nothing makes you want to come back.

It was never shit, it had no bugs or outstanding problems. Probably the smoothest multiplayer launch in years. Just needed more content, which they haven't added the DLC stuff yet (or even revealed what any of it is).
>>
Complete flop on PC, but incredibly successful and popular on PS4.

What does that tell you about this game?
>>
I still don't understand why they didn't do anything with the clone wars. It was a larger, longer war that had 6 seasons of a show to explore and flesh out
>>
>>323488393
Because they're saving it for Battlefront 2 which will be $60 plus tip.
>>
>>323488680
But we had Battlefron 2, and it had Clone Wars content, plus like 10 more maps and a bunch more shit

It's a good arcade shooter but it's name is completely wrong because it's a shadow of its former self. Also it's not worth $60

>>323485068
As of right now it has excessively glaring balance issues.

1) Imperials almost NEVER win Walker Assault.
2) Rebel fighters dominate the skys; both Xwings and Awings have shields that negate all blaster fire for a few seconds, the hitbox for the Awing is completely fucked up and makes it nigh unkillable, ground-based AA (read: infantry-usable ion torpedo) is worse air killer than the pulse rifle, a charge up sniper rifle, TIE fighters and Interceptors have useless speed boost which can't outrun anything, TIEs cannot outrun or out-turn even an Xwing
3) Some blasters are absolutely useless, some are absolutely dominant; DL44 kills in 2 hits up to 38 meters (which is a fuck huge distance considering engagement ranges in this game), on the other hand DLT19 which was pretty OP in the beta is now useless
4) The power-up system is still total garbage; all one has to do is camp in a certain spot and has a 33-50% chance of getting the power-up over and over and over again; most evident with vehicles and heroes; it's not uncommon to go an entire match without getting a vehicle powerup
5) Some of the star cards are absolute garbage or overpowered to the point of absurdity. Homing shot is a lock-on missile that targets infantry, kills in one shot unless the player has a perk that specifically counters it, and will track the entire map length. It has infinite flight time after being fired and will stay locked on until it hits something. Meanwhile smoke grenades and Ion grenades, scout pistol, cycler rifle have practically no use at all
6) The Millenium Falcon and Slave I are practically unkillable in Fighter Squadron unless half of your team is trailing them at once; the Slave I has almost no chance to kill the Millenium Falcon, but the Falcon can just use its shields and ram the Slave I for an instant kill while suffering no damage
7) AT-ST has almost no survivability.

I think all the game's problems stem from the removal of classes.
>>
>>323490460
the homing shot is the most glaring bullshit ever. Makes long range open encounters on Hoth basically unplayable.

I swear 99% of the time I get killed it's because of some camping faggot using homing shot. I almost gave up on the game (after about 12 hours, I got it for christmas), but I just unlocked the jump pack and it's maybe staved off boredom a little longer.

It needs some new fucking maps already and at a reasonable price. Impossible to recommend as it is.
>>
supposedly they are working on offline splitscreen but they are having dificulty. maybe its because they cant make an AI capable of playing?

also some of these issues need to be fixed before id even pay 20 dollars for it >>323490460

>>323491039
Oh, you mean that thing that's been in the game since the beta and is in the full version already?

I'm sure glad you hold opinions on things you know jack fucking shit about.

calm down man i meant according to what 'critics' would say.

they probably dont want to hear about how the AI by itself wouldnt be "as fun as against online people"
which isnt the point. Honestly the AI in BF and BF2 were.. clueless at times.
>>
>>323490460
removing classes, and making you have to grind (in a damned shooter game, no less) just to get equipment or customization parts are my biggest issues, i think.

Take out classes? Ok, well then at least give us more ways to outfit our character.

I really dont get what was so complicated about having classes, they do it in their own Battlefield games and in the old Battlefronts. can casuals not grasp the concept?
>>
>>323485068
did they add more free content besides jakku? no then no its still shit
did they fix all the inaccuracies that anyone who saw the movies could spot? no, then its still shit
did they fix the gameplay? No, then its still shit.

I can not believe we still can not get a accurate star wars game
>>
>>323487774
That the fact that the game was advertised a lot for the ps4 made people think it was an exclusive.

Do people really think Dice is going to change the game at all? I'm sure they've already made their money and people who didn't like the game to start with will never be pleased even if they did change shit.
This game was made for normies to buy who are dragged into the star wars hype. The kind that buy a game, play for a few hours, and shelf forever.

This sums it up.
Also like to add that killing air units is pointless. Since once one is killed, a new spawn point reappears immediately.

Depends how you use it. It's best used as an ant-air unit, keeping your back to a wall.

>>323494654
Using a controller is sub-par. But getting kills is hardly done with your blaster. About 10% of your kills are done with them, the others while you are overpowered in a vehicle or a an hero. The rest of the time you are just footfodder to be killed by others with a power up.
>>

Ion Torpedoes make the AT-ST the most expendable vehicle to ever exist. At least when you fight higher level enemis they usually just skip the Torpedo for the Jetpack, but on low level play this shit gets spammed nonstop its not even funny.

Confirmed NOT to be DLC:
no space
no new movie content

I think the DLC will be lackluster. And the suits are happy enough with the sales numbers already, so they moved the team to the next project: a Force Awakens stand alone battlefront. There is NO movie tie-in game and that is going to be it. Hence why they rushed this game.

There's no map where finding any object to be between you and the missile is hard. Half the fucking time you can dodge that shit by sprinting and jumping. People on /v/ can't be this bad at a casual shooter, can they?

Here's the thing about the homing shot:
If you hide behind something like a barrier or a rock or in a trench, then you can avoid the homing shot altogether. Honestly, homing shot is not that big of a deal.

Ion grenades can be used against vehicles. There's a use for it. It literally says it on the card. One of my hands is all ion stuff for damaging the walker in WA.

As for everything else, i agree somewhat.

they nailed the look, but they obviously never watched the movies so many simple mistakes anyone who saw the movie would know is wrong.

>>
>>323495694

Oh, you'll eventually get things close to that.

Either build on Frostbite or that TOR engine.

Can't imagine how much EA shelled out for that license but they'll do their best to use in-house assets and shitty, bastardized teams as much as possible. Don't expect anything good or worthwhile.
>>
I think the game needs to be balanced like it was in the beta. It was perfect the way it was. But then little babby rebels started crying about how they never win. So then EA made rebels EZ mode and now imperials never win. The rebels could literally wait until the final section with two walkers that have good health and still pull a win out of their ass. All they need is a decent speeder pilot.
>>
>>323496835

By the time the core game/DLC releases get down to the "EA Sale" price of 60 dollars the community is going to be a fucking ghost town.

>>323496830
Battlefront was hardly ever a simulation. It was always an arcadey action game.

BattlEAfront could be great if it,
1. ) Had more content
2. ) Was balanced by people who actually play games

I'd kill to have DICE LA take over Battlefront's post launch support.

>>323498692
storm troopers are not EVER allowed to take of their helmets. If they wanted to customize storm troopers they could have just done something that might still be canon like paint signifying what unit your a part of, for example the 501st have blue markings.
Storm troopers are not allowed to choose their loadout, a simple fix for this would be your weapon chooses what armor you wear, you pick to use a sniper you are wearing scout trooper armor.
They can remove classes but they did not even try to be accurate to star wars when doing so.

Storm troopers wear helmets that distort their voices EVERY and I mean every other game movie and show do it right, yet EA decided to screw something so simple up.

DL-19s are the first blasters you ever see in episode 4 they are single fire blasters with a decent recoil, Battlefront? one of the fastest guns in the game.

Tie fighters on hoth, if you watched the movies the reason they use AT-ATs is because the shields would not let the tie fighters in.

Star destroyers visible on hoth, you played the game and saw the movie see that big nipple canon? that is an ion canon the reason why in the movies the star destroyers are not visible orbiting hoth is because if they got to close the ion canon could destroy them and they could not do anything due to the shields.

There is a ton of shit like this most just require watching the movie something I guess Dice was to busy to do.

The issue is Homing shot has, according to stat wizards on the EA BF forums, a .47 second lock-on and fire speed; it takes something like .30 seconds to prepare/ADS, and another .17 seconds to lock-on. That is an astouding TTK that beats out all but one blaster at point blank range. Not to mention if you use a jump pack to dodge the missle, it will arc UP and eventually BACK AROUND to you thanks to its limitless flight time.

Obviously putting yourself behind a rock or something negates it, but on wide-open maps like Hoth or the sides of Jakku, it's completely unavoidable. It needs a finite range, a slower lock-on to keep it from beating blasters at point blank range.

As for Ion Grenades, the issue with it is that there aren't enough uses for it. You have ATSTs which spawn intermittently for Imps, and you need a smidgen of luck to get close enough to one to use the grenade on it, and getting close to a walker is kind of a pain in the ass since all the Imps spawn around it all the time. Not to mention the second someone using a turret sees a grenade sail towards them they just jump out of the turret. Why use Ion grenades when the risk/reward ration is skewed so much towards risk, whereas the Ion Torpedo is practically no risk at all AND has (admittedly limited) use against aircraft?

Ion grenade is useless, sorry.
