I'm not as I'm still waiting to receive my key from Greenman Gaming. They've been delayed due to insufficient key inventory by a few days I hear.

I got my key last night, so it ended up being a one day delay. However, it was so late that I didn't have time to play. I may give it a go over the weekend when I have plenty of time. Should be fun.

I think its more stupied fun how it is now (the beta atleast) and how drops, and the level works and some of the combat is cind of straight forward in a way where the Battlefront 2 had its uniqe heros, different units that all did different ways in how to attack etc.

^i find the flying controls to be utterly horrible. Maybe with a control pad it would be better?
But i haven't given it much of a go.

Its very annoying though, the spawn system. Reminds me of wwhy i dont overly like COD.
Funny when you spawn and an enemy hero character is literally right infront of you...

Anyways i haven't given it much of go yet. planning to give it a decent bash tonight.
Its very different to battlefield, which sucks a bit cos i thought initially that it was going to be Battlfield but starwars. Its much more liek COD
I have a KDR of 1.3 on BF4, i think with this game i best not worry about KDR and just play for uh fun? lol
Guess iam only 2 -21/2 hours in and level 6 i think?

Oh and i have killed myself many times....forgetting that some cards you hit the hot key to equip and some you hit the key to use and also getting mixed up what card i have or my nades bouncing off of the back of team mates and blowing up in my face.. lol

Well i did alot better tonight. Slowly getting used to it. Game is frustrating though.
KDR went from 0.50 something to 0.70 something.
The game is well polished but a bit shit.
It fun but the amount of times that you spawn and die is rather annoying.

all over that shizz!
I dumped 10 hours into it the first day it was out haha. played a lot of walker assault the first couple days until I got tired of losing 3 or 4 out of every 5 games for some stupid reason. then I tried out a bunch of the other modes and got hooked on heroes vs villains. that is seriously fun omg. even if you get the crap draw and have to be a grunt. can always respawn as one of the princess' guards or the emperors troopers. to many guys don't know how to be patient enough in there though. its all FORWARD UNTO DAWN! RAAARRRRW and then your boned haha.
been playing a lot of supremacy the last couple days which seems to have brought my crapstats back up to par or top side of even after I blew them all to hell on walker assault.

Yeah, I've been hitting up the SW:BF quite a bit in the last couple days. I despise the flight controls and find the accuracy of the weapons to be irritating (I also play Verdun, a WW1 FPS, and those WW1 rifles' accuracy is a lot better.....). I invested in the focus card as soon as I could, and found that helps a lot. Seems to already be hacks for it, too, which is a nuisance.

Overall, I consider it "okay". Not worth what I paid for it, but still fun.

As a rule I never buy anything EA puts their name on. There is also the $50 DLC season pass $110 for a game...no thanks

Yeah i think my win loss ratio is like 35% to 65% so that hasn't helped my casue.
Haven't tried all of the modes yet. Mainly played walker assault and supremacy, infact that's all i've played.

Glad to see that i am not the only one who hates the flight controls.

Yeah man the accuracy is a bit shit. In battlfield you actually need skill but in this game its just spam spam spam. I like to aim down my sights when i shoot but it seems that in this game your are much better just shooting at the hip...
Ok so long range zoom but everything else just do what would normally be noob but in this game its just as accurate and its almost like using yur sights is a disadvantage.

Seems to me the only way that i can get alot of kills is to use alot of nades/explosives and use gun turrets alot.
The only time that i can get a massive score and kdr is if am the empire in walker assualt and i get the card to get into one of the big four legged walkers.

One thing that is REALLY pissing me off is, i STILL have not had the chance to play as a hero character!???
Not in the beta and not after playing at least 5-6 hours in the game..
Every one of my friends that i play with finds the hero cards but i have not yet even once lol..

Its weird its not like BF where you can play the game in certian ways and not die and own and like COD with kill streaks. Alot of it seems like luck?

And yes EA has a very bad rep and this game is WAY over priced. There is no doubt that we are just paying for the "star wars" brans name.
I mean i love Battlefield 4 so much and i played alot less for that game and i mean how good is fallout 4? again, i paid alot less for that than i did for this game..

Having said all of that, it looks brilliant and is a good game to test out my new GTX 980 and it is fun. But its just spam and spawn death.
Bring on Battlefield 5 lol...

EDIT: oh and for some reason i kept having to re equip my blaster every dam round???
Like the new balsters that i had unlocked, i equip it but found every round the default blaster was equipped again so i had to manually re equip at the start of every round?
Thats probably why i was getting so badly owned the other night?..

Yeah, EA focus too much on graphic and money (like DLC's etc)

I think some gamemodes could be awesome though mixing the heros (since they are maybe the more tactical difference? or the random drops?)

oh well I was thinking of a mixed mode "creeps" (basic units) to try to take over areas (capture and destroy) and only 1 side has heros but less power with humans (like lets say a bit like the old lord of the rings games.

Nearly no games like this anymore :(

I think a lot of the hate comes from people who didn't look into the game before they bought it. it was never going to have an epic single player mode. its just a time waster. you turn it on, blast some chumps for 20 minutes or 8 hours and that's it. I know there are a few co-op modes but its was never intended to be anything other then cod with lasers if you ask me. which is fine. everyone needs one of those games when they can't bring themselves to turn on anything else they are playing. most of my other games right now are rpgs, and I get tired of the slow grind. so this game is perfect.

Well more of that "onrail battles", more cod like (shoots first tactic's later) and that about less "wave" cind of battles (where there is 2 huge sides fighting eachother a bit like street fights not 1 PvP and the randomness) I wish it was more to it and not stupid fun (easier then cod) where its nearly just aim and click.

I atleast thought it would be compered to bit more like how Rising Storm did it but more modern.



also because dice in the past allways been so high on their 64-32 MP battles is sadly a loss now

Would be soo cool having many stromtroopers down in the woods but the little guys throwing rocks at them:



So there is much missing from the old ones and I wish they stopped using the previous titles.
