@NoPoachedEggs yeah your at least partially correct. I have to admit when i played the beta i was like......
But bought it anyways.
And i agree, its jus ta game to chuck on for a quick bash and a bit of fun.
Its not serious or team work or tactical like Battfield (not that half the community play it like that anyways..)
I dont really find it addictive like i would normally with a new fps game. As far as wanting to play it every day or all day and night.
Dont feel as concerend with my kdr or winning but having said that after a several beers the game was making me rage a bit the other night

Oh and another thing that was really pissing me off was, the pulse cannon. I been getting one shot killed with that dam thing so many dam times, i finally unlocked and equipped it and everytime i hit someone with it it dose f**k all...yet i continue to get one shot killed by it.
Then, after complaining about it several times through my mic, one of my mates tells me that you have to charge it....lol...

Not me. I was hyped for it when I heard of its announcement, but that hype faded away when I learnt just how much it was dumbed down.

-No space battles.
-No singleplayer campaign.
-No classes.
-Only four planets.

I might pick it up if it gets exceptional reviews, but even then there are other new/upcoming releases that take priority over it. Persona 5's coming out in 2017, Fallout 4 just came out recently, Dark Souls 3 is arriving the day before New Years, the new Tomb Raider game looks good, etc. And on top of all of those, I still haven't gotten the latest DLC for Dragon Age: Inquisition.

So yeah, Battlefront's not really a concern of mine too much at the moment.

RE: pulse cannon doing damage

That confused me at first, too. You have to hold down the trigger button and let it charge a couple seconds to do more damage. There's an indicator surrounding your aim dot that fills up, showing you how much you've charged it.

^ yeah once my mate told me i was able to use it fine.
Will be interesting to see how long this game lasts. i've played it bugger all and dont even feel liek playing it and most of the time when i check my origin friends list i dont see my friends playing it, some still playing BF4 and some that own battlefront already gone back to BF4 lol..
I prolly will end up doing the same.
Might give it another bash tonight.

Finally got a hero card, thought i should get closer to the enemies. Card was gone...must have timed out..
I did eventually get a go as Darth Vader. Kiled about 4 dudes with my saber, then i tried hitting hot keys and died so need to practice.

Finally got a kill with the pulse rifle..lol..

I was using a heavy blaster with heavy damage but poor rate of fire and cooling. Died alot.
Switched to a gun with really high fire rate and cooling and was doing much better.

At times its like iam being trolled or mocked, the amount of times iam just about to get the four legged walker star card and someone just over takes me or drops down from above and steals it...
And the amount of critical assists i get..

lol
I still think this game is largley about luck. All about the luck of the spawn (worst spawn system that i have ever seen, makes COD's spawn system look brilliant)
And about the luck of the star cards.

I finally started playing on Saturday and it was good fun, though I can see why everyone says it's a bit light on launch content. It seems to me that one will need to purchase the season pass to experience the game in its entirety and I'm not willing to buy something that expensive since it will basically mean I purchased the game twice.

Well the gameplay is so bare, and needs more meat even though it also depends on the map design.

I love how EA was paying celebs to praise Battlefront and it completely backfired.

The reactions are hilarious, it's like some people realized what celebrity endorsement is. Where have they been living for the last few decades???

Some celebrities are actually trustworthy to some. Liam Neeson and Clash of clans, Snoop and his weed, etc.

Well, i've given this game a decent bash and iam really really trying to like it. I mean it aint all bad. Its new, awesome graphics, sound, its star wars and i find it somewhat fun and addictive.
But its just a reminder why i love games like Battlefield(team work, squads, bigger maps, less spammy, etc) and didn't like COD.
It has without doubt the worst spawn system EVER!
Couldn't keep count how many times i spawn take a couple steps forward and die.
It seems pretty common to spawn with enemies behind you, or a whole bunch infront, spawn right by a hero character (sometimes he kills you then you spawn right by him and get killed again), i have spawned amidst an orbital strike a few times, etc.

I learned something new. i thought on the mini map the red arcs pointed towards objectives at first, but they point towards where the enemies are. So that helps...

This game is fun but just so frustrating. Theres times where i dont seem to get assists when i should, i get so many dammed critical assists.

I just cannot get in the big four legged walkers, everyone always beats me to the star cards. So f**king annoying.
Played as a few hero characters now at least. thats fun.

Managed to kill myself with a homing missle....i mean seriously....wtf!?

I still get mixed up at times with some of the star cards. like the explosives that are thrown, and the ones that are set in place like a claymore.

Cant wait for BF5 lol...

^ i dont know what they are. I dont plan to play new COD, i wont ditch this game just yet but i can see myself going back to BF4 until part 5 comes out.

EDIT: had a big session earlier today. Getting better. Dam i encountered some good players. They were dominating. They had personal sheild and jet pack.
I finally got the jet pack. I miss my homing missle but they are great for escaping orbital strikes(which i i still spawn amoungtsalot..) and can help get away from hero characters.
I still have no luck ever getting in the AT-AT's or what ever they are called..
