    Ive written a long set if notes to the bf2 forums about these issues but no one reads apparently. The only threads that get a response are short pointless ones.

    The heavy class is the most versatile but heavily hindered because its AA side never really comes into play where its useful. I have two AA cards in that class which should be wrecking vehicles but by the time the vehicle is taken care of you have to reload your cards for infantry.

    Then their is the point exploit in ships in galactic assault. All it does it allow players to get a lot of battle points without making an impactful difference to the result of battle.

    If dice actually allowed a quicker progressional outcome per class we might see a far different game.

    You need to also see what maps are rotating as some are just no good and have bad choke points for attackers.

    The lack of squad play also males it less engaging but because of map design allowing team mates to spawn on a sqaud leader with timed rewards would mean the games would end within 5 minutes in galactic assault.

    Galactic assault is the best mode because of the overall star wars experience but heavily restricted and sometimes predictable at the same time.

    If they get this done and loot boxes banned, how many mobile game maker apps are going to be sending merry FU cards to EA for this one:).

    I really do hope it gets done.

    when I think I am having a bit of fun I stop and think about battlefield 4 and imagine if it was essentially the same game reskinned as star wars it would be epic.. we need 64 player conquest with squads and large maps.

    while they are still holding out on what their future plans around monetisation are on this title this is a don't buy. You literally don't know what you are buying.

    Weird that I get more enjoyment from the drama surrounding AAA releases these days than actually buying and playing the game. But meh, can't complain, free entertainment!

    Sadly it isn't free, as the opportunity cost is that you aren't getting to play something that would be far more enjoyable than said drama, if it wasn't for the things that caused it.

    should have made it F2P. Probably a better business model if they did that.

    All they had to do was copy overwatch in their business strategy. Thats it.
