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.
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.
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...
