  1. There's an alternative way to play Battlefront II online right?
    We should REALLY play it together some day. Get at least 20 of us in a map and let mayhem ensue.

      Alternative to what proposed way? GameRanger?

      There was alternatives, but not that I could remember. I imagine LAN works as well.

      It's not so bad so long as you know how to port-forward I'd presume.

      I'll look into the sort once I can convince myself to do so, but it shouldn't be hard to search things up.

  2. Some advice for Stormtroopers. Next time, try aiming at ANYTHING BUT your target, and you'll probably have a better time fighting the rebels. Is that a Jedi running towards the Falcon? SHOOT THE FALCON, and you'll hit the Jedi instead. EZ PZ

      Tbh, we dont have conversations like that.  If we see somebody else online we dont immediatly go sending them messages or asking how they are doing.  You may think that you are being friendly or something, when in reality you are just spamming up the feed and for the most part annoying the person you are messaging.  Or annoying people who have to see all those messages in the feed.

      I just saw this message and thought everyone was discussing how great I am gdi. I am doing fine. College starts in a week sobs.

  5. Has anyone played any Total War games from Creative Assembly? Personally, I think a Star Wars Total War could go really well, especially in the Old Republic era!

      A new Star Wars RTS game would be pretty awesome, if it's made by Creative Assembly though, they better have a proper community and mod suppost because the only CA will make Star Wars games is basically that Disney would have to pick SEGA as the next Star Wars Game publisher after EA.

      *insert "Take my money" memes here* xD

      Seriously, that would be AWESOME!! I would play an Old Republic: Total War game or any sort of Star Wars: Total War, game for that matter! Although, now that I think about it, "Star Wars: Total War" looks like a meme in and of itself when looking at the title... xD

      I'd love a game where I could just set up a base defence, place clones wherever I want, and watch them defend against hordes of droids

  6. When Battlefront II EA comes out, don't let the Clone Wars content cloud your judgement. 

    The lack of prequel content was far from the worst problems that the first game had.

  7. For those who are still somehow unsure about the problems of Battlefront EA and what fans want in the sequel.

      So, basically a return to what Pandemic's Battlefronts gave us? I think he missed a few key things though in what we really need from the game in order to keep Battlefront EA II's longevity. Much more than six, or even more than what I list.

      1. Offline play

      2. Bots

      3. Galactic Conquest

      4. the return to the old vehicle system

      5. earned hero units

      6. more diversity of troops, vehicles, heroes and planets

      7. DLC that doesn't fracture the community

      8. higher player count

      9. A goddam server browser! lol

      Agree with that. If enough people kick and scream maybe one day we'll get it. Because if we keep buying the next game and are quiet, it is unlikely we'll see substantive improvement in the replayability of the future games. None of this stuff is overly taxing or unrealistic, it should be completely doable for a Battlefront game.

      two big problems about the partner system: 1. If you dont have a partner, then you must do alot of running to get back to the action, which is very annoying. 2. Your partner sucks ass... it sucks to spawn on him camping, or always dying every 5 seconds, and you can never rely on him to get you back in the game quickly

    3. tofu_waffle

      @Peirce a return of the squad system would be great. Even better, the conquest mode from the original battlefront that lets us spawn from captured control points

  8. Still quite worried about the 40 player count in Battlefront II EA. Sure, it was still chaotic in the first game, but the maps were structured in a way that didn't need to compensate for vehicle spawning. The problem with its maps were that even if it seems like a large map, you will be restricted to a small area and will die if you step out too far, making flanking and coordination impossible as your only option would be to always just move forward. You could die the same way in the originals, but those maps let you explore WAY further out from the combat area. I don't see a 40 player count map going well with vehicle spawns. If they make vehicles god damn power-up pickups again, I swear to god I will tear the ears off the next Gungan I see.

  9. Do any of you think the notification list on this side could use some tweaking (the button with the bell)? Most of the time I can't really tell who is replying to what, and certain times it's not condensed and collected, for example, I click on the notification saying "X person has replied to a status update", and after reading all the comments of said update I click on the notification below the one I previously clicked, only to be redirected to the exact same page. Idk, maybe it's just a nitpick.

      Yeah it could for sure be upgraded to something much easier. But I have gotten used to the system anyway, so I suppose I could endure it. 

  10.  I'd say in general Star Wars the Clone Wars gave us what the prequels failed to execute.  The series starts off quite weak, with some animation being very poor and ugly, but as it progresses, it becomes sleek and smooth, showing how the animators got used to the process. It does have its own faults, but that's a topic for another day I guess.
    The characters are much more well thought out, and more believable and relatable, not to mention with very well-scripted dialogue on average.
    -Anakin is much more realistic here than his movie counterpart. We see a fully fledged, freshly knighted jedi who's out to prove himself worthy of his promotion. He's loyal, smart, kind and skilled in battle. Like in the movies, he can be very reckless when it comes to adapting to a situation, but in the cartoon his decisions to take high risks have a pay-off and we really get to see why Obi-Wan and the 501st respect him. Unlike the Skywalker in the movies, he doesn't whine and come off as creepy or a brat, and his romance with Padme becomes much more believable, and because of that, Padme becomes more than just a poorly made plot device for Anakin's fall to the dark side. If the series did not get cancelled half way, we would have seen Anakins descend to the dark side GRADUALLY grow in fruition. The prequel movies just killed off his mother and lover, and tries to force it to the audience with cringy and non-subtle dialogue that tries so hard to be tragic, like "You're breaking my heart".

    -Ahsoka acts a perfect student figure for Anakin to both teach and learn from, making him see his own recklessness in his student and gives him a unique perspective, (SPOILER AHEAD) and her banishment from the Jedi Order is also a great catalyst for Anakin's first hint of doubt in how the Jedi Order runs itself. We also get to see a proper perspective of a padawan's training and how the structure of the Order in that era works. Ahsoka is also her own character, someone who develops her own maturity as the series progresses.

    -Yoda is taken full advantage as a character here. No longer is he the stale, boring green man who sits in the council, always grim and serious with not a single moment of levity in the entire prequel trilogy. Here, he is charming, wise, witty and always puts a smile on our faces when he's on screen. When a serious scene DOES play out, he drops his casual attitude and puts his vast amount of wisdom to use. Instead of "the future is cloudy", Yoda, like in the originals, expands and explains the mystery of the Force with each sentence, little by little, also with bits of self-improvement teachings that can be used in everyday life as well.

    -The Clone Troopers in this series become characters, and in my opinion, are collectively by far the best part of the series. Again, in the movies, all they were were cannon fodder and an excuse for Lucas to show off flashy special effects that provided no tension, character investment or development, and were just mindless CGI figures that nobody cared about. In TCW, the Clone troopers are an absolute delight. Captain Rex, Commander Cody and the many clones throughout the cartoon made us care about them. Every time a battle breaks out, we feel bad for each trooper that dies. Why? Because of small, subtle and underlying things. The way they call each other "brother" and treat one another like family, the way we see them interact with numerous natives with care, the way they learn from and interact with their Jedi generals, and how they discover that they weren't just tools of war. Both the characters and the audience finds out that each trooper was his own individual person, despite how similar they look and genetically are with one another, as Yoda said - 

     

    Master Yoda: Your helmets, remove them. Your faces I wish to see.

    Lieutenant Thire: There’s not much to look at here sir. We all share the same face.

    Master Yoda: Deceive you, eyes can. In the force, very different each one of you are.

    ---

    Master Yoda: Rys, always focus on the enemy, are you. For inspiration, look to yourself, and those beside you. Jek, concerned about weapons, you are. Weapons do not win battles. Your mind, powerful it is. Out-think the droids, you can. Thire, rush not into fights, long is the war, only by surviving it, will you prevail. Clones you may be, but the force resides in all life forms. Use it you can, to quiet your mind.

     

    Personally, I'd recommend anyone who plans to see Star Wars for the first time to skip the prequels, and watch Star Wars the Clone Wars instead.

      @Sk8rkid28 Where did you get that information from? I was watching the celebration panels of the clone wars from 2015 to now and they never talk about that, was it from  a interview? I imagine that if that's how the show would've ended that it would've been like how Rebels season 2 ended where it plays the depressing music and shows a montage of whats happening now. 

    3. Sk8rkid28

      Sk8rkid28

      @TheDarkShadow8500  It was in a YouTube video that Dave Filoni was speaking in. The actor who voiced Ahsoka Tano was there too and she was crying and everything when what would have been was revealed. I'll try to find the video for you by tomorrow.

      @Sk8rkid28 Oh you don't need to find that video, I saw that video days ago. It's the Ashoka untold tales panel, nice panel. The reason I watched the panels was because I was taking notes on TCW's remaining episodes.

  12. It is said that Luke Skywalker went into hiding after Return of the Jedi when he hid his Tatooine Tuskan porn magazines in the Falcon. Leia accidentally found them, and scolded Han for making her marry a "disgusting scruffy-looking smuggler who needs three bacta tanks to clean his dirty mind".

      Wow that's a good one I have to use that one at work.

  13. Don't understand why people want Darth Vader doing all those fancy prequels lightsaber dancing. Can't imagine him doing backflips, jumping off walls and spinning like some gymnastics veteran - Vader is a slow, unstoppable tank that can take a hit, and dish it back out with twice the damage. What I like with the sequels is that the lightsaber fights feel realistic, gritty and it feels like they're actually trying to cut each other down, instead of doing a choreographed ballet dance in the prequels which were all about being flashy. But since the fight we saw was between Rey and Kylo, an amateur force user and an apprentice who got shot in the stomach, I expect to see Luke's saber fights ( if there are any) to still look realistic, but with clear style and more grace.

      I know what you mean, while I personally enjoy these duels I'm not blind to their problems. Also, Ataru is form IV, form V is Shien which is for heavy attacks I believe. 

    3. tofu_waffle

      tofu_waffle

      Yeah. I think the best portrayed lightsaber fight in the prequel style would be the cinematics from The Old Republic

    4. TheDarkShadow8500

      TheDarkShadow8500

      Yeah those fights are amazingly good, especially the one in the "Sacrifice" trailer.

  15. Is there a Discord server for people on this website? If there isn't, I think one should be made, as I really would love to chat with people and just discuss Star Wars all day.

      One has yet to be made and organized.

      Something I'd love to do, but I'm tight on time as of right now.
