Star Wars: Battlefront Discussion

Recommended Posts

Going to throw out the cons I picked out from playing 50 or so matches. 

 

  • The hit registration needs work. Could be due to it being on the beta servers, but when I shoot a guy in the chest and he takes no damage, then I get annoyed. 
  • The polygons on the terrain seem to be really broken when shooting weapons. I could be near a rock or ledge, looking at guy while ADS and when I shoot my gun, it hits the invisible terrain...
  • Spawns are atrocious.
  • Melee is completely broken and useless.
  • Party system is poorly made.
  • Radar needs to be adjusted. I tend to think someone is right on top of me when in reality they are 100 feet away. 

 

I could add more but those are the big ones I can think of off the top of my head right now

It's really going to depend on how much I'm playing Halo 5 and Fallout 4 on whether I will get this game or not.

I'm probably in the minority here, but I'm more hyped for SW than Halo 5. The Halo 5 starting weapons of AR/Pistol are really making me cringe. I've seen latest greatest gameplay, but I just don't trust it enough to buy Halo 5 day one. I'm going to give it a solid week to see how our community takes that game and thinks about it.

The funny part is seeing all the people in the H5 threads campaigning for AR/Pistol to be the competitive standard. 

 

I'm definitely more hyped for Battlefront, but that's because I haven't been waiting ten years for Halo 5.

And a lot seem perfectly open to a gametype with little-to-no shields, one-hit melee, and one-hit grenade to be in a competitive Halo tournament. I don't think I'm wanted anywhere at this point.

This game doesn't seem to have the "X factor". Feels like they've taken a lot of choice away (No vehicles on map [they only spawn on demand], no clone wars no classes, a poor array of maps and features).

 

I dunno. Underwhelmed.

This game is definitely Star Wars, but I feel like it's far from what Battlefront was.

I want to turn the person who said the game was Arena like into gibs...

Hopefully they come out and tell us what changes they have made since the beta.

You've been reading the Halo 5 thread? Lots of people are perfectly open to trying out the idea, thinking 343 will take it out if they don't like it. Their inexperience is going to ruin them.

Did you guys play third person in the beta? It's a game changer.

 

Anyone who wasn't was playing with a huge crutch.
