Couldn't believe it, played as a hero (Luke) for the first time tonite. I had quite a decent run beforehand, but it feels like getting enough Battlepoints to play as a hero is more of a once in a blue moon sort of thing than a typical part of the game.
Which is fine, as the Heroes are insanely powerful, so if one appears on your team it's more like a treat. I don't like it when there's too many heroes running about.
Which then makes the idea of locking heroes behind credits even more ridiculous.
*shrug*

tbh, hasn't really phased me. I still get a kick out of playing this game. Currently I've unlocked a few cards and stuff for heroes I don't even have haha - still though, I go in with the mentality of I'm just playing a Star Wars themed Battlefield game and mostly play assault or heavy class - If I'm lucky enough to earn battlepoints for a hero class sweet - if not, no biggie.

I guess I'm just a complaisant gamer.

I'd only have a hissy if there was content hidden behind a forced paywall - the fact I can eventually get everything for free is fine. Ultimately the decision is up to me if I want to spend my money or earn it for free and that's okay with me. If there were elements (and depending what type of element) only obtainable by paying is a different story.

I think Planetside and Planetside 2 conditioned me this way lol.

That's my type of gamer... as some of you know from my escapades in Heroes of the Storm and finding the least effort means to earn gold to unlock more heroes. But if what I was doing in HOTS shows, it's that I wasn't play the game as intended because that was not the most efficient way to get gold. Looks like this guy has come to the same conclusion.

On the topic of unlocking heroes... personally, I think they should have just stuck to it being a random pick up like in the first game... leave it to chance to play it. At least then you have a chance at playing the hero especially if players are finding it difficult to get the points required to play as a hero.

Love the 'Purchased the high ground meme' too!

The latest comment is just EA digging a deeper grave. Hilarious!

Yeah, I know right. Seems like a down to earth girl and fun to be around. And these aspects outshine her good looks too!

Pity there's this fiasco around the game. Hope she gets some good exposure from the work though to boost her career.

Janina's been in True Blood, Mysteries of Laura, starred in the last season of Sleepy Hollow, Far Cry 4, Horizon: Zero Dawn... I think she'll be fine. ;)

She's great as Iden, it's just a shame the story is poor. And, you know, the rest of the game is getting thrashed. :(

Nooope - no you don't.
It's not very good. I only watch it because I committed so much to it already. Besides, she was only in it for half a season, if that?
Flash is way better.

True Blood got crappy after season 3 or 4?? I stopped watching it. Best season of True Blood was the Nympho season. I think that was Season 2?

The odds sure aren't high that EA are thinking about anything other than ways to fleece the consumers... cynicism warranted.

Thank you Youtube for recommending a dozen videos based on one I loaded up.

EDIT: Would love to see a Twitch stream of Janina trying to get Mark Hamill into modern gaming after seeing this...

I like Chris' movie reviews as he's usually quite objective and fair with his ratings so it's interesting to see his review of Battlefront 2. He's definitely gamer light and focuses on single player experiences over multiplayer so it was interesting to see how the game rates from this perspective...

Is there a player count site like there was for the original battlefront? I just want to see what player numbers are like.

Same.

I've been trying to find one without success.

Not too surprising that EA isn't playing dice with releasing the player numbers. They are far more likely to get sales if potential purchasers don't know that it's tanked.

Nooo don't say such things :(
It hurts more because it's true

I still enjoy playing it though, regardless of the shit it went through.
