[QUOTE=jonoPorter;53171951]wait so you actually would prefer gameplay affecting items?[/QUOTE] The statement you bolded literally intended to mean "Cosmetic items are better than game changing items in microtranscations, if there has to be one." But, still, I kind of wish this entire micro-transaction thing went away completely. Micro transactions just remove community interaction. Remember the days where you could play on a different server in JKA every day, and every day you could see a new game mode and community with new maps and mods and - sometimes - animations and skins? Now we have the pay for a limited amount of them until they shut the servers down. It's all greed. Nobody's interested in making a good game for a community.

[QUOTE=jonoPorter;53172174][/QUOTE] Bit petty aren't you, pretty sure you knew exactly what he meant
Tried to stream for the first time - played Jedi Academy. No viewers, literally, because nobody watches Jedi Academy on Twitch. At least I had a tiny highlight of sorts :v: [twitch]MushySuperApeSMOrc[/twitch]

Possibly the progression rework. hopefully.
We're suppose to get more info about the changes this month some time.

[QUOTE=Tuskin;53184178][video]https://twitter.com/AntonWittberg/status/971312611110342661[/video][/QUOTE] I'm cautiously optimistic that this update might fix some things, and might actually add something. Let's hope.
What ever it is, it required UI work.
Apparently Inferno Squad are name dropped in the TLJ novel.
Battlefront 2 (EA) concept art [url]http://conceptartworld.com/news/star-wars-battlefront-ii-concept-art-joseph-mclamb/[/url] [editline]13th March 2018[/editline] I don't think that's the Jedi Temple library, the architecture matches Theed.

That one definitely looks like the Jedi temple library, while most of the read looks like Theed. And that one bit looks like it's a corvette crashed into the hangar bay of a Star Destroyer? Of course, it's also possible that the Jedi library isn't the only place that has... uh, library technology?

The floors the pillars statues, the giant window and even the clothes of the people.

I'm guessing the artist painted over a screenshot of the game or or a screencap of the movie to draw it. that would explain the droid lol
Oh hey, this is finally back

Progression and MTX news! Revamped Progression is Coming Soon
That sort of system should have been in place from day one, god damn you EA. Well better late than never, right? It all sounds promising, but so did battlefront 2 right before all the shit went down. So really hoping DICE and EA have learned their lesson and aren't just finding another method of fucking over their customers.
Oh don’t spend any crafting parts as they’ll convert into skill points in April
So with the revamped progression update incoming, is there any worth to picking up the game in advance or is it better to wait until after the update drops? Only ever played the beta so I've no idea how the current version is.
I'd wait till the new update and see what others say, though personally I enjoyed the game anyway but I didn't really pay attention to the cards(not saying they aren't terrible) but I just enjoyed the feel of the game and the atmosphere
The progression update is nice; however as someone who has everything they already want and just wants more content, this is a bit disappointing. Really hope they drop some new maps soon.
Yeah I'm in a similar boat. But I don't mind too much because the progression really, really, really needed to be fixed. And I figured that would be first in the pipeline before anymore content was rolled out. The good news is, once the progression and cosmetics changes go through, it should be smooth sailing and content patches for the forseeable future. You know, assuming EA doesn't do something monumentally stupid. Again.
I wouldn't count on it, they need some sort of income from the game lol, comestics are ok for lootboxes but still rather have none at all, dice making all this content they're supposedly making for free, doubt it'll last long being free
Cosmetics will be purchased using crystals, not RNG.
I'm curious when the trooper customization comes around if the rebel, resistance, imperial and first order classes are still going to be gender-locked or if they will change that. Of course if that was never the original plan then they'd have to record new lines for the opposite genders and not sure if DICE is willing to put in that much work...
