The new map and game mode is good. (the DLC). Its only one map and unfortunately the new mode is only available on this one map but its a cool mode.
They are blatantly ripping us off with this game but hey, at least the graphics are awesome..

^yeah its hard to ballance this game and Fallout 4. Plus work, sleep and some social life...

New mode is cool.
Was funny, another guy i was playing with last night, said the same thing i been sayin, an what others been sayin. In this game, if your an FPS player and you are used to using skill, used to actually aiming and using your sights, you will struggle in this game.
He was just like me, tried aiming couldn't get kills but just play like a skilless noob and shoot off the hip, kills galore..
Kinda funny lol but its so true in this game.
Even long range hip fire seems accurate..

Its kinda shit but hey, its just fun, jump in for a bash and do some spamming.

I only just realized the cards that you equip in slot 2 of your hand need charges lol..
I was just using them asif they were unlimited like your blaster ammo and the other cards you equip in slot 3.
had to spend in game money to get more charges (explosive rounds). I guess that makes the game slightly less spammy..

Shiiit wanted to play some fallout tonight but just had a big bash on this game.
Its crazy how much in game money you need! For unlocks, upgrades and charges.
I noticed also that the three challanges that were set for me were all ones that i was never going to do (win three rounds of heros vs villians, destroy ten x wings, get 20 kills with tracking rifle(dont play that mode, dont fly, dont have that weapon).
Just noticed you can spend in game money to get new challanges , so i did that.
I unlocked the personal shield. Its ok. More of a defensive messure rather than offensive. You can run in and melee but i found it more effective when under heavy fire and retreating.

Notcied i get put in American servers/with American players (iam in Australia). Not sure if the match making is bugged or if that indicates a lack of local players?

iam getting beter at this game, my KDR going up and i have less really bad rounds, feel my skills improving but i still feel that this game is alot about luck.
Like some rounds you always get hero cards and walker cards and other rounds you only get crappy ones or dont get any/many at all.

I only played it once today but im not a fan of the new map. atleast not yet. I think once people have played it enough to know how wide open it is it will get a little better. to many idiots just running right up the middle to get their pews on. I found myself yelling at the tv this morning "FLANK DAMN IT! DO YOU PEOPLE EVEN WAR!!!!" but I guess that happens anytime my team seems to be sucking tonton nuts.

the lv40+ unlocks are quite pricey for sure. but I mean I didn't really buy anything or upgrade anything after getting to like 23. so I had a big ass pile of cash on had to buy a couple new character models and some of the emotes. and im sure ill have plenty saved again once I get to 50 for the last few.

Yeah i like new map and mode but you do have rounds where the rebels dont even take a point.

Played quite a bit earler. Geting a bit bored of the new map. Wanted to play some supremacy to do a challange (win three rounds of supremacy) but no one was playing it.
Guess alot of people are playing new map/mode.
Was able to play some walker assualt at least.

Funny i find the game frustrating and boring often but its addictive. I think if it weren't for unlocks/upgrades and stats i'd be over it perhaps but it is addictive.

I find doing challanges really speeds up the leveling up. I didn''t bother with them at all at first. I keep spending in game cash to change the challanges though.
Couldn't be bothered trying to get 25 pistol head shots. etc

I don't really bother with them. if i get one completed its only because it happened naturally while I've been playing. i stopped spending the 500 credits to change them a while ago if one came up i don't really do like cargo challenges because the same three or four seem to always pop up on me. so meh.

and yeah, i sat in a lobby for almost half an hour on Friday waiting for enough people to fill a supremacy game so it would launch
that was almost like a game its self. see the same names popping in and out over the course of the wait and start bitching at them lol. just stay in the damn room! could have launched this like 15 minutes ago if you tards didn't trying looking for another lobby. just stay here! AHHH!!

probably to much coffee that morning

Wells, iam just about over this game. The shit match making no dedicated server thing. Not sure if there's just bugga all people in Australia playing it but iam regulary getting put in servers where i have a shit connection.
But the spawn system in this game, i just cant get over how bad it is.
Ok admittedly iam feeling rather ragey now after a horrible horrible horrible session in this game and i admit i suck at this game (its painful because iam used to being good in battlefield) but i have lost count at how many times i have spawned taken one step forward and died.
I reckon i have spawned and had an orbital strike land on me at least 20 times now.
Lost count how many times i get killed by an enemy and respawn only to get killed instantly by the same guy.
Lost count at how many times i spawn and get shot in the back.
Lost count at how many times i spawn and theres like 3-5 enemies right next to me or infront or behind me.
Yeah sometimes i do partner spawn, sometimes just random spawn. Playing with randoms partner spawn often dose not go all that much better than random spawn, worse at times infact.
I mean i spawned on my partner just before and was killed by an thermal detonator but my partner lived i mean wtf??
So often its spawn, step forward, die. I thought COD was bad but this takes the cake.

I feel that skill and tactics are required in this game to an extent but iam convinced its just a clustered spammy peice of shit that has alot to do with luck.
Reckon i stepped on a thermal detonator five times in one round the other day, then you have rounds where its nothing but being one shot killed by pulse cannon or you just have no luck at all as far as you never get any good star cards or even any star cards, only get kill assists, etc
I mean we all have our good and bad rounds (some more than others) and you get unlucky rounds in any game but i reckon in this game good or bad luck(star cards) can really determine if you have a good round or not.
Occasionally i get crazy luck where i get hero cards and all the good star cars or get in at-st's multiple times in one round but most of the time i just get shit luck.

iam convinced that alot of hackers playing this game also. I regulary see players getting 80-90 plus kills for almost no deaths and guys getting 35-50 kills almost no or NO deaths.
I just dont see how that is possible in such a spammy cluster fuck of a game??
Its not like you can just camp, its not like in Battlefield where you're in a squad and communicating, rolling with medics getting healed and revived, not like you can stay in a vehicle(s) all round.
I can understand if you have a good run and play as a heros and get in AT-Ats that you could pull it off but not round after round?


Argh guess when iam playing terribly and feeling a bit of rage i should just stop playing cos sometimes i just loose my shit and forget what team iam on or push the wrong hot key and use the wrong star card and i get so angry at how constantly you seem to get stuck against or on things, your own team mates get in your way so dam much and block your path and door ways and block your shot and its funny but also annoying, the fight for star cards.
lol sometimes its more of a battle of who can get the star cards , like a race, more than the actual game objective.
Found my self saying out loud "span, die, spwan die, spwan die" ...

Well my kdr dropped to 0.92 lol i haven't been this shit since playing COD. I hated COD so no wonder i dont like this game.
Funny i keep playing this instead of fallout and then i regret it.

Wish there was weapon attachments and mods. Eh i dunno i've really tried to like this game. Its looks so dam good and its star wars! I've given it at least 30 hours now (i think?).

Really doubt i will be buying and season pass/DLC for it. Not sure if i want to go back to Battlefield 4 though?
Might give it a crack and if its fun then ah, f**k star wars.
Would be good to get to max level rank. But not sure if its worth it.

lol i used to have to be drunk to make rants like that, was sober..

Anyways, playing again, even after the rant and continuing the rant at work and after.

Yep, seems the game pretty dead already. Confirmed that iam getting put in American servers.
So i think me getting like 200 plus ping may be why i suddenly suck so bad after seemingly getting half decent at this game.

Anyways, yeah seems this game will die early like hard line. My mate said he checked and at times only like 8000 people playing and one time like 5000(world wide) and it's hard to get in a local server.

If only the game wasn't so expensive and they weren't so greedy. And if it had dedicated servers. Would prolong life.

Yeah, it turned out exactly as I though: a success on console with peaks going up to over 100k (depending on the day) players on PS4 and an already declining population on PC (source: http://swbstats.com/).

With the last 2 major release from DICE (Hardline and Battlefront) not doing well on PC, I'm curious to see how BF5 will turn out.

Yeah man lets hope and pray that Battlefield 5 will still have dedicated servers. Not this match making garbage.
And surely they (EA/Dice/etc) will now see that Battlefield players want to play "BATTLEFIELD" not COD.
And COD players want to play COD, not a game trying to steal the COD market.
Need dedicated servers, decent sized maps, and vehicles(not random lucky dip star cards i understand that Battlefront is not Battlefield and they tried something different, same with Hardline.).
Lets hope they dont change Battlefield anymore to appease to the console market, even though they already have and will becasue that's where the $$$ is at.
Most people still think BF2 was the best so yeah @Freddy96NO grphics are not everything.
But having said that i am of course very glad that Bf4 looks so much better than Bf2 did and i am a BIG fan of the destructible environment.
Battlefront didn't really make use of this (the game engine) only real sign of destructible environment were the tree's in that forest map.
Battlefront is a lovely looking game though, excites me, the potential that BF5 will have.
As long as they dont screw up the choppers and jets anymore but hey, there's no way it could be anywhere near half as bad as the flying in Battlefront.
Admittedly though, i dont fly. I just gun in the chopper or play ground vehicles or as infantry(or commander).
Oh and people still play BF4 now over 2 years later
