DICE/EA just can't recapture the greatness of the old Battlefront games.

Yes, I expected it to be GOTY obviously.

I thought it was decent. Only played a couple hours though. Don't think I will pay over $40 for it though

Not enough players for Galactic Assault. I never felt like I was part of anything more than a tiny little skirmish on the streets of Naboo. Also, the Naboo map is terrible. They were too concerned with showing off environmental effects (like birds flying up through the sidewalk), as opposed to making sure the map is actually fun to play. The star cards also just kill the game. Not only is all progression locked behind f***ing lootboxes, they've done the unthinkable and made it P2W with cards like making Boba Fett invulnerable while boosting at card level 4, or just straight up giving ships more health and damage output.

The community for this game will be dead after a few months. They didn't want to split the playerbase with map packs, so instead they split it based on character strength. A bunch of people are inevitably going to end up getting the game for Christmas. When they hop in for the first time and face people with fully upgraded guns and star cards, they're going to face a dilemma; either uninstall or break out that credit card.

that looked f***ing horrible tbh.

maybe it's my setup which doesn't make sense(close to maxed out at 1080p with 1070) so it's probably a game problem.

Yeah the Naboo map was a poor choice to showcase the game for a beta, but I wouldn't call it a deal breaker. However, the star cards are the deal breaker here.

I'd also like to throw out there that this is probably one of the few situations where nobody would have given a f*** if they had just reskinned a previous game (BF4/BF1) and slapped Star Wars on the box. Every deviation they make from the mainline, already-declining Battlefield games seems to just be for the worse.

It is very casual. Reminds me of early xbox starwars games with added multiplayer. Theres a place for it though. Some people prefer casual

The vocal minority hated Battlefront 1 because it was a watered down Battlefield with a Star Wars skin. Didn't matter because the game sold millions. The same thing will happen here. Every year, more people start gaming who never had before. For them, all of the bulls*** that has come to make me despise the industry is completely normal and mostly not a big deal.
