i think they should cut down the number of kills needed to  unlock  gun upgrades down to 50. the jabbas contracts in the previous battle front where way better than this. its too much of a grind.

I found the opposite... I had to get my son to unlock all the Jabba Contracts for me on the last game as it was taking me ages. I am motoring along in this one, unlocked the second Assault Rifle and two of its unlocks already.I can see why some might feel i is 'grindy' but I have been playing for 2 weeks and am level 19 with a decent range of weapons unlocked. I am progressing a lot quicker than I expected. Now I have unlocked second rank guns for each Class I am just concentrating on playing Assault now as it is my favourite Class.If you only get an hour or so of play a week some of those milestones must feel like they are unreachable.

I forgot to say that the great himg about janbas contracts were that the kill count for unlockable wasn't too demanding. Just get 50 -75 kills with a certain weapon and use a charge card and get kills with a throwable and that's it in battlefront two to get the next unlockable you have to get 100 more kills than you got for the next unlockable.

Definitely sounds a lot quicker, Jabba Contracts also used to encourage you to use different weapons too which was a plus.

 

How are you doing Rank wise? I have just got past Lvl 20. Crafting Cards is getting pricey and and more of a hindrance than unlocking weapons for me.

 

My Starfighter levelling up seems a bit dodgy, it seems to get stuck until I craft a card then it suddenly jumps up a few ranks.

I just ranked up recently. I didn't look I think I might be level 15 or 16. I've already unlocked luke vader and Chewbacca I've also unlocked the cr-2 gun for assault class and the s-5 for the officer class. i',m getting easier kills now.

Are they the new DLC heroes? ;)

Glad you are ranking up Cigs, I think rank 15 is a turning point, by then you have some good booster cards and most of the tier two weapons unlocked.

I have had some good fun playing Heroes v Villains since it came up as Seasonal Challenge, mich more fun than heroes v villains on SWB1 imo.

Yesterday:

Saw that someone ran past a missile launcher so I decided to run back and pick it up.

Then this happened.

Looks like when you held the button to pick up the rocket it used the interaction to put you on a nearby Speeder with a mental surge in distance and speed at the same time... possibly.

Looks mental though :)

@Cigs really interested in what they come up with after the launch debacle. They gotta keep themselves, Disney and the players happy. Good luck with that.

i'm getting better at specialist class. I just unlocked the IQA-11 some days ago and I got another milestone yesterday and unlocked the speed bolt upgrade for it so now it shoots faster. I hit with more accuracy now and I can shoot from the hip better at mid range and close quarter now. I didn't like the sniper riffles in the last battle front. i'm not talking about targeting riffles like the  EE-3. 

the snipers in the last one had low rate of fire and were pretty weak I remember getting a head shot once an still not getting a kill this also happened with with the charged beam card. so I didn't mess with sniping anymore in the last installment after that. I usually like to snipe in other games like gta online deathmatches, and I was pretty good at goldeneye wii multiplayer deathmatches with the sniper. i'm glad i'm getting better at sniping although it was a grind. it reminds of when I used to play 2005 battlefront 2 and I used to snipe from my camping spot on the utapau map. btw I think they should bring back command centers and spawn vehicles so that we would be able to change trooper classes during a match.

I have opened second tier Sniper Rifle and just that is a big improvement. You can definitely approach this game a lot more tactically than the first one, especially sniper wise. I don't enjoy specialist as much as I hoped but it is a lot more enjoyable once you level up a bit.

 

My son was telling me some of the weapon milestones have dropped from 500 kills to 400 kills, looks like EA might have been listening to you :)

I'm rank 30 now and I have the last gun for officer. Friday thru Sunday is challenge weekend or something like that and there are 3 unlockable hoth skins for Luke ,Leia and han. Today is Luke's challenge and you have to score 25,000 points to unlock Luke's skin. I got it today. I had to do a few blast , hero vs villain and starfighter assaults to rack up third points.

Cheers for letting me know, not been on for a while as GTA and Fortnite have been taking up my time.

I love the game but it seems to be dominated by one or two types of tactics (courtesy of YouTube) and my enthusiasm dropped off.

Transactions are coming back soon too, that combined with DLC might give the game the shot in the arm it needs to get me back playing. Would also love private matches too, I love a stealth heavy 2v2.

I just found out yesterday that there is an update coming Wednesday day that revamps the upgrade system. We won't!be using credits anymore to upgrade cards. Cards will be ranked up in game by points.also crates will be strictly cosmetic and all unlockable heroes and vehicles will be free. Also the Bespin administrators palace from 2015 will now he a playable map addition for blast and heroes vs villains mode. There's videos on the battlefront updates YouTube channel with gameplay.

Looking forward to see what they do, roll on Wednesday. All the EA talk hints that they have listened to the player and given what was asked for progression and cosmetic wise.... really don’t k ow what to expect from them though.

So im thinking of getting this game since it's on discount (30$).

My question would be though is it worth the price for campaign/arcade only?

Ive been playing BF1 and I feel like im more cannonfod then actually helping my team. I looked at BF2 and it seemed even more complicated with all those cards n upgrades. So hence why I ask if its worth the money for just those 2 gamemodes.

They ditched the whole lootcrate system and now you can rank up like it should have been from the start. All heros unlocked and you can rank up specific classes just by playing, no need for luck anymore.

The pay to win part is now cosmetic only from what ive read but didnt see it yet tbh.

I'm glad that this game seems to be turning around because it looks incredibly fun and i'd love to get on it eventually.
