Wii-U.

 

I'm concerned about this game being broken as fuck, though, and probably won't get it day 1.

I'd be shocked if this game wasn't janky as heck during release.

 

Still, TIE fighters and shit.

All, this is a friendly reminder to let you know that the Star Wars: Battlefront open beta begins this Thursday, October 8th and will run through the 12th. As stated previously, it's open so no need to register.

I will be downloading it on PS4.

Holy shit. An AT-ST just tried to run away from a PC... And then we saw why.

The pod drop gametype is pretty great, kind of like a more mobile version of Conquest with one objective that changes position once a team holds it long enough. I haven't been able to get into a game of Walker Assault yet.

When you do, I pray Imperial is your first experience...

Fun game no matter how unbalanced that mode is.

Won 2 games as rebels tonight. One on the 2nd set of uplinks. Also found out that a Smart Rocket does 80 dmg to an AT-ST. Also, the vehicle turret absolutely wrecks as a rebel. Buy ion grenades for defense, too. Ion Shot, Ion Grenade when rebel, shield and thermal when Imperial.

Now that players are figuring out this mode I'm starting to see more Rebel victories. Imperial's is still the most fun though. :)

Yeah, it's frustrating to see players not realize the objective. You have to build up Y-wings. How long the shields on the walkers stay down is directly tied to how many Ys you build up. One match, we built up maybe 12 in round 1, and took out the inside walker with zero problem and got the 2nd to 25% health.

We still lost, because people stopped playing the objective. If you only get 2 Y-wings, the shields don't stay down long. I need to time it, but I think it is 10 seconds per. At the end, you only get as long as the Y-wings bombardment lasts, obviously.

Steps to win Walker Assault as a Rebel:

 

1.) Find Orbital Strike.

2.) Use on unshielded AT-AT.

 

The balance could use a bit of work, it's all over the place right now. Pod Drop is great though, and third person/unscoped >>> first person/scoped all day every day.

 

Awesome game... only thing I'm worried about is the limited map selection at launch.

Yep. Sitting on an orbital strike power up is the secret to winning. Thing can cut a walker's life in half.

Also, although more difficult, if you can get a Snowspeeder right before vulnerability, you can kill it in one go with the cable. Just finished a match where we won with the first uplink stations. One down by Speeder, one by two Orbital Strikes.

 

Also, if you haven't given it a shot yet, try third person mode. After I got used to it, going back to first person feels like a huge handicap.

No flinch in 3rd person.

How do you get a speeder in round 1?

We had a first round rebel win. Hit the inside walker with an OS, while I made some torp runs on the outside walker with an xwing.

Who has decided to NOT get this game?

Considering canceling preorder. Was fun for 3 hours, then it became very repetitive. That's a huge problem with multiplayer only games. There was just nothing dynamic about the encounters. Each round played out exactly the same, every time.

I'm not sure I want to pick it up day 1 because of the lack of a story mode, and because they are going to charge $60 for multiplayer only. They could have easily done some kinda prequel into 7. Doesn't make sense that they've been trying to make singleplayer games through the more recent Battlefield games only to skip out on one that actually would have mattered.

 

I'll see what people are saying about it after it releases. I don't really trust them after what happened with Battlefield 4's launch.
