COD tries to be Battlefield???? Please do explain?
(i haven't played a COD game for a long time but how is 8 vs 8, random spawning, small maps, no vehicles, old out dated engine with no destructible environment, no commander, no squads, etc trying to be battlefield?)
Serious question though.
If anything i'd say that BF had gone a lttle more like COD. Most maps smaller than they were in BF2, shallower ceilings(for the jets and choppers), probably more infantry friendly/vehicles nerfed, more COD like maps and game mode, etc.
Dont get me wrong, i like playing infantry, i dont fly and small maps can be fun (not really with 64 players though and i LOVE having 64 players but some of the more recent BF maps were not well designed for that many players).

Well i played this some more. One thing i will give it credit for is the fact that you dont get any server crashes or game crashes.
I still believe that this game, whilst dose require some skill is alot about luck. Luck if you get placed in a local sever with a decent ping, luck if your on the good side and luck with star cards.

I think i keep playing it because the graphics and its star wars. And unlocks and stats addiction.

My mate checked the other day while i was playing and there were only 9000 world wide playing on the PC, at the same time 16 000 were playing BF4 (PC) so like, wow.
There were 47 000 playing on PS4 and 30 something thousand on Xbox one.

Iam having some fun rolling with a pretty dope blaster pistol that i unlocked (the one where you need to be level 24 to unlock) , upgraded grenade launcher thingy, explosive rounds and upgraded homing missle. Plus the survivalist trait.
Doing alot better now with that load out.

But still, my best rounds are when i get in the AT-ST, AT-AT, Hero characters and gun turrets. Thats when i get rounds where iam like 33/6.
Still not sure how these people get 50 plus kills almost no deaths every single round though?

I get the odd freeze up here and there. if I play for a few hours one day it may happen to me once. just the game, I can hit the dashboard and close it and re-open but still kind of annoying when im having a good round.

Id love to have a better stat tab. its kind of bland with whats in there now. and im sure there will be some sites you can load to check them more indepth but meh. id like to see the win/loss broken down by mode too. I swear unless I play supremacy my win/loss is terrible. heroes vs villains is probably like 40w/60l. I just can't seem to land a couple of guys who know enough to just stay alive when that's what a win will come down too.

at-st's and the hero pick ups are definitely where the kills come in. I do think more people need to look at what map they are on to better choose which hero would be best. like why people pick vader or luke on one of he bigger open maps makes me scratch my head. you would think you'd want to go with solo or the fett in those cases. more indoorsy map or one with lots of tunnels and corridors, absolutely, go with a light sabre and stack some fools up. choke points = crazy kills. I dunno, might just be me. I tend to do a lot more defending of capture points when I get into an at-st or pick up a hero card. not really by choice but for the most part teams I end up on seem to be all about rushing and nobody cares to turn around when a point is contested or we start to lose it.

I hear you on that crazy kill count. I saw a guy go 61-1 once. like what.. the.. fuck.. HOW?! lol. I did pretty damn good that game too and was barely into the 30 kill area with a few hero pick ups. so I don't know what this dude had been doing. not like you get enough time in a game to have hero cards pop half dozen times. unless he was like the frggin sky boss and could pick it like hawkeye, I just don't know. those quick games too, like I sometimes have a team on supremacy steam roll the other side in like 5 minutes flat and then you see the score sheet and the guy at the top managed 30 some odd kills. how in gods name did he even have time!! lol. magic laser gun always finds target or something. like fack me.

but anyway. hit 50 today. probably start dickin around more then getting myself worked up over my kd or w/l. I should spend some time changing my cards and weapons up. I been using the jump pack, barrage and my trusty pistol for so long now. I think they need to learn about ergonomics in the case of the jump pack. it looks like shit lol. all big and bulky. I think im going to be throwing a stream out to trap a ghost and pull it into a trap everytime I look at it. I mean hell, its star wars. you would think they could put that shit inside my space boots and let me ironman my jumps instead of carrying around that oversized shoe box like im in the 9th grade.

Occasionaly my sound will go staitcy.

Yeah weird it dose not show deaths and it is bland.
I cant even gte into a supremacy server/game last few times.

Yeah you're right about the Heros. And yep i dont see how one can get so many kills so quick unless they heros or in At's every time or in the space ships possibly?
But there are guys who do it roihd after round. I know some people are good but there is so much luck involved in this game.
Like yesterday i spawn in run forward a bit and get killed by a pusle rifle, spawn take one step forward thermal detonator goes off, spawn get in turret get killed by x wing/ship, spawn couple few steps killed by x wing, spawn take couple few steps killed by x wing, spawn run forward a bit and get one shot killed by jet pack dude with the bow caster.
So yeah not sure how dudes dying 1-3 times every round getting ridiculous kills?
Meh.
Yeah i think your right people rush alot and dont always go back for objectives.
Must admit sometimes i just give up on objectives and try to get kills and care about KDR. Annoys me when people do that in Battlefield but in Battlefront its more understandable. Trying to win can mean a fuck ton of death, especially as the rebels in walker assualt.

Yeah i was mixing it up for a bit but sticking with load out for now.
Not sure i'll play enough to hit 50 but prolly will. Would'nt mind changing my characters appearence but costs alotta in game $..

But yeah sucks the game so dead. I often cant play certian modes an get in the games where i have a crap connection..

Playing again, yeah there is no doubt so much luck is involved.
I had a round or towo just like the one i descibed above, but also some where i would get 5/6/7 kills in a row at the start but then die several or just as many times after that and it was largely due to spawn deaths.
And i had rounds where i just got NO good star cards. yet i still see round after round dudes getting 50-60 kills almost no deaths so buggered if i know??

Anyways, i've almost unlocked everything now (as far as blasters and star cards)..
Thought i just experienced my first sever crash but its just the servers are all down for maintenance.

Oh yeah, dont you hate it when you get in the AT-AT and theres not many enemies around or its facing in an angle just off so you cant hit them? lol

Cant get my KDR over 0.99 lol.....

I haven't been in an at-at in quite some time truth be told. I haven't played walker assault since the first week of launch lol. its really only supremacy and heroes vs villains for me. odd game of sky captain tossed in there just to see if I can finally get to fly the wedge or the boot but never get it.

the thing ive been finding very fucked up lately is the spawning, for sure. since they changed that count down timer to hold people before the game starts, they changed the spawn points around and it screws me waymore then it ever helps. I don't know how many times ive been spawned right in front of an enemy, beside a proxy, waaaaaaay to far from a point my team is holding or right in the middle of the other teams choke point when they are after a certain capture point. if they are going to be so fucked up why do people not get 3 seconds of invulnerablility to get their bearings? I mean I don't know where the hell im about to spawn at. if some tool is back in my spawn area because he can't get a kill unless he is bushwackin guys back there why should I have to pay for it with a 2nd death very damn soon after my first one?

/rant/rave/youknowhowitis

meh. if that's my only gripe right now I guess it could be a lot worse. but yes, please do something about your damn spawn points EA, they are garbage!

your kd will probably go up shortly, it always seems like that 1.0 is a big hump to get over. ive been floating between 1.4-1.6 myself. which is actually pretty good for me because I ptfo like a mad man. nothing I hate more then tree climbin campers playing objective games.

the Christmas gift wave is already hitting I think. I was wrecking fools this morning. not because I woke up all a sudden more awesome or something, they just seemed to suck that much more today lol.

Yep. i think my kdr is over 1 now? lol
Anyways i just had my first game crash. But it might be on my end, it was one of those crash to desktop no error messege crashes.

Encountered another shit thing about the game. You know how you get your default hand and seconday hand? Well, iam guessing that is so you can switch between hands inbetween deaths during the round??
But, for me when iam in game both hands are the same, even though they are not the same.....
By that i mean i have to completely different hand set ups but when iam in game and i want to change hands they are both the same????? wtf!?......
REALLY annoying.
And it was buggin out like showing i had only ONE charge for my explosive rounds when i hand like 40-50? was really pissing me off.
So basically i cannot switch between hands durning the round, so wtf is the point of it?

I still play walker assault 99% of the time. Bit like me playing conquest in BF4.

Yeah spawn syetm is gay. As i said, why i dont play COD.

After seeing the new Star Wars movie, which i loved, it makes me want to play this game alot. lol....

EDIT: Hmmm.....weird, it just crashed to desktop again........again no error.....was doing reasonably good too....plus was an epic round on blast 75 kills each not long to go....*sigh*
for fucks sake.....
2ND EDIT; hmm again.... i end task in task manager, exit origin, reload origin, load game.....might be time to restart pc.............
3RD EDIT: ok so now iam convinced that this is the usual EA shit and the game is fucked??????
I restarted my PC, as i was logged into a match, just for a second my screen went black and i thought "here we go" but then it was good. Get in game and all is well. Then my screen goes black but this time iam back to the battlefront screen and get an messege telling me that i have lost connection something or rather. No my net did not drop out.
God dam it i think they have some sort of xp or money boost thing going on but my game just keeps constantly crashing. iam playing quite well and consistant today also.... Getting lots of kills and positive KDR's but keep loosing all my points and stats evey time it crashes.
So its like Battlefield now....but not as fun.
Great.
4TH EDIT:Hmmm.......well graphic drivers are up to date (and i have a GTX 980) , game is optimized with Nvidia Gforce experience, i ran "repair game" via origin and it happened again. Seems i can no longer play this game.
I guess last resort is to uninstal origin and reinstal or delete the game, re download and re install...... FARK!

^there is battlefront 1 and 2 but i never played them.

Anyways, i uninstalled and reinstalled Origin and it may have solved the issue.
I googled and that was one suggestion.
Typical though, i was playing really well before when my game kept crashing NON stop.
Now i may have fixed it iam getting destroyed, Its like i was in good servers before with non elite players and non hackers and it was fun.
Now all the untouchables and/or hackers are on. Might have something to do with me having several beers and being very hungry and smelling food(my food i ordered arrived) and frustration but i was playing great before and now its like nothing but instant death.
Got my KDR to 1.01 lol but those last two rounds was about 10 deaths to every kill(slight exageration lol). Iam sure theres hackers in this game.
Its funny, i have a curse on me, in Battlefield almost every single time iam having a particualry good round and about to get MVP, the server crashes.
lol guess my good luck continues. iam not born lucky i guess? :(

EDIT: i dont believe to crashes to be the game itself. i believe its a windows 10 thing. I had fallout crash before also. i've just upgraded to the latest version of windows 10. See if that makes a difference.

ha ha ok so i load up this game again to test an see if i fixed my issue(i updated to the latest version of Windows 10 and reinstalled GPU drivers, ran scans, etc) and i join in a match of walker assault and theres a guy with 330 kills and a guy with 200!?
Seems the game glitched out and is never ending ha ha its just an on going round that will never end. Be funny if it eventually crashes or is reset an none of the stats count.
But yeah guys with 80 plus kills and ZERO death or like 1 death. i call BS.

God dam it i think double EXP is on and first it was my PC f**king up and now its the game servers. lol.

I got into a match like that once on the xbone, so its definitely not a glitch that specific to platform. the walkers were non-existant and the game was never going to end. so guys were in there with 25,000 points like they'd been playing it for three hours or something. I mean I get that its never ending and you can have some serious fun, but I bet a lot of those guys were sad when they had to leave the game and not end up getting their points.

double score weekend indeed. nice to pull in 1-2k per game. stupid 7k upgrade cards. not even sure why I do that, not like I use anything outside of my jump pack, barrage and ion shot. I do try to once in a while, but I've been using those three things so long now that my entire play style has formed around those options. I feel lost when I change my cards and blaster up. and it definitely looks like hell stat wise lol.

I thought about buying it for pc when I was looking at pre-ordering but when it comes to shooters ive always kept them to consoles. I just put a GTX titanX into it so I know it could handle the game. I tend to keep my rpg's on the pc, for obvious reasons. mods, cheat engine, the good shit basically haha.

I was actually playing some of the hero missions the other night after I got tired of mp. I swear its so much easier to get the master challenges done by leaving the ai support solders off. its not like they actually go collect the point coins after killing an enemy and they sure don't go pick up the ones that our team drops. just need some patience and its pretty easy to keep them under 40 points for that last star. I have to put them on easy again just to run around and collect the fragment things but that'll be the last one I do.

First off sorry for my rantings lol i should'nt post when angry and or had a few beers. Second of all it was not the game, it was my PC/Windows 10/GPU drivers/not 100% sure that was causing the crashes.
Ran the game fine with no further crashes yesterday so hopefully i have fixed the problem. And the weird bug with the hands being identical stopped happening also.

Yeah i was like "screw this iam out" lol

Yeah iam really annoyed that during the double points weekend my game was crashing to the point of being unplayable and i think everytime it crashed i lost all my points?
Glad i fixed it but i wasn't playing as good yesterday as i was the day before when the crashes were occuring so i didn't really make the most of it.
I have all blasters and all star cards except smoke grenade and two of the perks unlocked. I have upgraded alot of the cards but not all.
I continued to waste some $ on changing challanges and i bought and emoticon or two, and made my rebel and storm trooper helmetless with a beard..
I think the upgrade for things like grenades and homing missles or the caster bow are worth doing, give a slight help or advantage.
I was rocking the barrage, exploive rounds and homing missle but then i changed to caster bow, explosive shots and that single shot sniper rifle. I really like caster bow but i switched back to homing missle.
I miss thermal grenade and barrage at times though.
I use Han solo's pistol, great close range , long range not so good.

You should have gotten it on PC! the graphics and frame rates are so much better! and how can you play an FPS game with a control pad!? :P
lol but this game dose feel like it was designed for console/control pad. Flying feels impossible with keyboard and mouse.
FPS are the main games i like to play on PC. Keyboard and mouse ftw.

I breifly played the SP during the Beta but have not since the full game has been out.
I'll have to at some point.

Back to what you said about the xmas rush, its weird some days it really seems like i've gotten so much better at this game and/or like the opposition team is pretty noob or like the two sides are even, no suss scores, take turns winning etc
But then on another day its back to me being shit and getting destroyed and guys on other team getting shit loads of kills for bugger all deaths.
Luck of the draw i guess?
Oh and the movie being out and xmas and hoilidays still to come, hopefully i will be able to own some noobs

Man, one thing that i hate about the bow caster is that if you charge it and a team mate runs infront of you as you let go of the trigger, u kill yourself. This has happened to me quite alot.
Also sometimes if you pop around corner and enemy right there ypu will kill wour self if you let go but wont get the kill necessarily.
And for me this game is still luck of the draw. I really cant tell if iam any good. It varies so much.
Its almost asif i only do well if i get good star card and if noobs are on and/or my team is good.

On a side not.....my game just crashed to desktop again..... *cries*........ ..... FUCK!

My PC has something wrong i guess......
