    Default Battlefront Discussion

    I know there are already a few topics regarding Battlefront 3 on the forum but no REAL discussion threads. I especially don't want to keep filling the one in the News section with opinions and comments. Also, I wanted to mosty hear the opinions from the JK guys that have played the beta, which is why I'm making this in the Jedi Knight section. So, what have you played it on? PC, Xbone, PS4? And how did you feel about it?

    My first time trying it out I only played for about 10 minutes on PS4 and couldn't really get a good grasp of the game, so my original opinion was negative. I've been playing today on PS4 again for a lot longer and I got to start using the Cycler Rifle, absolutely love sniping in this game and I think it's interesting how they made it a card feature. I wasn't sure how I felt about this at first but I ended up liking it. I also like how the sniper has to headshot in order to one hit kill, otherwise it just does 90 damage. I'm also really enjoying the jetpack. It reminds me of the one from Advanced Warfare, but I hated it in that. I've pulled off quite a few sick plays with the jetpack and Cycler at the same time, love it.

    Walker Assault is a bit Imperial biased in the beta, understandably so, but I've come close to winning on Rebels a few times. The AT-ATs made it to the generator, we destroyed one and the second one had a sliver of health with literally every single player on Rebs firing at it, thought we had it but he ended up getting the generator just in time. I think in the full release rocket launcher cards will balance this out and Rebels will start to win more. Because of this reason, and the lack of players in turrets or AT-STs shooting at you, I think I prefer Drop Zone better atm. Oh and I got to play as Vader, hate his voice but I was absolutely owning with him.

    I do still think the full release is going to be lacking in depth and content however, but I'm sure they have plenty of DLC lined up... Good game all in all, not as great as I think it could be, but it's definitely enjoyable. How long til it gets boring though? Probably not too long lol

    At the moment, I've probably expressed by dislike for the dlt in a string of curses. Walker assault is painfully imp based due to the strengths of atats and atst support. While rebels have air superiority, the atats are a pain to take down with the atst support. Turrets should be able to do more damage to the atsts imo.

    I'm told that 12 more planets will be added for the release so that's promising, I hope they fix the dmgs on some of the guns and I hope we also get a good deal customizability. something akin to a fusion cutter wouldn't be too far out of the question.

    You noobs need to learn how to win as the Rebels on Walker Assault. Pick up a couple Orbital Strikes and wait for the AT-AT's shields to go down, and release the kraken! Seriously though, like just one Orbital Strike will take out over 60% of their health, if not more. It's super easy if you can find them and manage to hold on to them. (Basically, pick one up and don't use it or trade it out)

    Except that you don't. You keep it until you use it or trade it out for another pickup. I've tested it.

    I think this is true
    Though my luck so far the orbital strikes have bugged out. I save them from the start and wait. ATAT shields go down and hp from 100 to around 25. Game needs teamwork and rebels from my angle don't seem to use the turrets provided. They seem to weak for me though. Especially ASGAR'S. ATSTS need nerf as well because that mortar strike can be op and they just sit on our spawn which means are spawns need to have some detection as to where enemies are so we aren't spawning right on top of walkers. I got 30 kills at the 1st checkpoint because spawns. SNOWSPEEDERS are very hard to cable with. I struggled to get it to even show up and I spammed 4 like crazy.

    TLDR

    Jet-pack Dlt wombo combo
    edit: also Derek has a point, a few times I have lost pick ups on death before using them, it happens mostly with orbital strikes and that anti-vehicle turret. I'm sure its a bug but its a very annoying one.

    I was able to play it for a couple hours the other day on my friends computer (since I can't seem to figure out whats wrong with my own :c) and I enjoyed it quite a bit. We were both able to win on walker assault on both sides and were able to do surprisingly well when we played with one person on mouse and the other on keyboard. I like the team deathmatch mode the most just because its actually balanced. Pretty sure dice has said they're going for functionality and not balance in the beta.

    Because a beta tells all? They have said they know it is not balanced and a lot of things haven't been implemented yet.

    Uh, we had a slight weapons malfunction, but uh... everything's perfectly all right now. We're fine. We're all fine here now, thank you. How are you?

    Another one of my issues with this game is upon respawn your star cards aren't automaticslly reset. If they weren't fully recharged when you die you spawn with them still charging, annoys the shit outta me

    The beta isn't perfect, yes, but hopefully they'll work on things. A big reason they did this beta weekend was to get feedback. Let them know what you think they should fix (and don't be a douche and say everything, be specific). If they get enough feedback about certain things, they'll likely change them. EA may be a shitty company, but I believe DICE honestly wants to make this game the best that they can.

    Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the beta immensely. However, there were certain things like posted above that bothered me. I think most big time Star Wars fans, especially those that played the original Battlefront games, are being somewhat over-critical. I understand because I myself was disappointed with some things in the beta and some things spoken of for the full release, but I won't say it's a bad game (not yet at least). I hope DICE is smart enough to improve upon the game using feedback from the players prior to the release but something tells me they won't fix much. Like I said, I have a few concerns and issues but I don't think you can deny that this is a good game. I found myself stuck playing Drop Zone for 4 hours straight because I was enjoying myself that much

    Setting any negativity aside, it will be a fun game to play. Features being limited, and balance less of a concern for the immediate future of the beta...the game will progress into one I'm sure everyone will play. The PC version seems optimized for graphics and performance already which is wonderful. It's a Star Wars game, with Star Wars music, and Star Wars sounds and characters. I will play it, and I will enjoy it based on those factors alone. I am not worried about balance, or redundant matches. Looking forward to what lies ahead.

    Also I suggest to anyone comparing this game to the previous releases should think twice before letting nostalgia alone ruin your first impressions towards Battlefront 3.

    Just an FYI, it isn't Star Wars Battlefront 3, it's just Star Wars Battlefront. It's a reboot of the series.
