    Ran out of room and deleted this game before the updates. What did they add?

    New Season drops on May 16th.

    It will be a solo season. It could be good.

    EDIT: The new season will drop in parts. First part is 5/16. Second part will be after the Solo Movie releases.

    new update is out.

    jabba palace for the smaller game modes.
    new skin for leia and lando.
    new hero vs villains game mode.
    seems ewok hunt is permanent now.
    starfighters in arcade mode now.
    added new challenges which is basically scoring points with heroes, starfighters, jetpack troopers, enforcers, and regular troopers.
    they have a new mainscreen display.

    also feels like they significantly cut down load times.....i dunno what i'm going to do now that all that free time between matches and when going back to the main menu time is gone.

    They altered the i-frames on the dodge/roll which is good, but saber blocking is really off. There is a delay in when it becomes effective, which in the right situations, can lead to insta-death if there are rapid fire blaster heroes or a group of troopers for that matter.

    Anyone hear about the next Star Wars game that is set for NEXT year 2019 holiday and talked more at E3 2019. It was talked about at EA's press conference. The guy that said it was saying a little about it in that your a jedi. I don't remember the title right off hand but it sounds interesting though.

    Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order, developed by Respawn. It takes place between Episode III and IV, when the Jedi are being hunted down, and you play as a surviving Padawan.

    Yeah I mean those guys, while great, are kinda basic. It’ll be great to hear Corey Burton again, I miss him.

    My ideal prequel hero lineup is Anakin, Obi-Wan, Ahsoka, Yoda, Mace, Aayla, and maybe Padme vs Dooku, Grievous, Ventress, Bane, Savage, Embo, and Pre-Vizla.

    Ion torpedo went from pretty useless to slaughtering starfighters so I’m loving the update. I’ve started placing in the top five as a heavy now.

    Just got this game last week on the Xbone for only $10- for that price this was a steal. It's got it's faults, but man it looks good. I played the shit out of the first battlefront games back in the ps2 days but skipped Dice's BF1, this one definitely takes me back though and seems like a marked improvement. And I'm glad to see they are still releasing more content, I get to jump in on the hype train for upcoming stuff like Geonosis and it seems like the community is still there for this game.

    You definitely jumped in at a good time. Besides the content, you're starting fresh with the new XP system and a whole SLEW of refinements!

    I really need to get back in on this...

    Is this worth getting into now?

    Cause I got the game at launch but due all the negativity, I swiftly removed it.
