    RTH Meh...

    Still play 1 and 2 all the time.

    Best fun EVER.

    PS dropped the ball BIG TIME by not getting those on the PS3 for online.

    Probably afraid they would take away from their own games...

    I'm glad they did this beta so hopefully they can balance out the Hoth level.

    It is too easy for the empire.

    The empire gets access to more air support and earlier leaving the rebels with a few heavy turrets.

    By the time you get access to the snow speeders the empire owns the sky. Usually the idiot who grabs the X-Wing gets blasted or crashes.

    For the rebels to win you have to take out the AT-ATs. I've only seen it done once and it was with the speeders cabling them down.

    Also, like other DICE fps games, it is way to easy to get behind spawn points.

    I walked the edge around on Hoth and got behind the rebel spawn point. I got in a laser cannon and cut half the team down only them to respawn and immediately get blasted by me again.

    It took a solid 5 mins of cutting them down when they spawn for someone to walk all the around the map to get behind me and blow the turret.

    Seriously what kind of TV is these folks on.

    I get wrecked on Hoth from clear across the map. I can't even see who shot me on the kill cam but yet they shot me.

    I'm changing my tune on this one.. I think I'm going to wait until this gets cheaper. If there is not a good story mode, I'm not interested.. The online FPS thing gets old pretty quickly to me.. The Star Wars veneer kind of fades away pretty quickly, and it's the same old FPS game that we've seen a million times.

    And like @Tennessy XO said.. It's not all that fun just running around getting sniped from a mile away. There's not much strategy involved, at least in this beta,. It's just get shot, respawn, kill a guy, get killed, respawn.. gets tiresome, and I remember why I drifted away from FPS games a long time ago.

    I'm really glad they released the Beta first, so I know not to blow my 60+ dollars, and all the money they are going to gouge out for DLC. I'll wait until the deluxe edition is about 40 dollars, and has everything.

    Then I may pass it the F up, entirely. Star Wars' greatness is in the characters and story... Not just running around as a (female for some reason) snowtrooper trying to shoot down nameless (also female for some reason) rebels.

    god.. my anticipation for this just continues to drop and i was genuinely pumped when it was announced because i enjoyed the first two so much

    .. $50 season pass ...

    a whole emote? nowai

    STAR WARS™ Battlefront™ Season Pass

    sigh.. i now fully expect the base game to be a shell much like Evolved, which at first I was looking forward to and then saw **** about how their purpose was to have the most DLC ever and I promptly never bought it. Getting close for this game..

    Knowing the map helps. There are a couple hot spots for snipers. When youre invading, theres a hill that you see as you turn the corner from the fiest spawn point that usually has 4+ snipers waiting for you to become visible. Stay in the trenches and dont stand still. If you stand around and look, youre going to get sniped. (Basically we noob it up for a while until we know the map)

    Sadly, I think I am just getting old and cant aim as fast as many of the players. I do much better in the smaller maps. Playing the same one over and over does get old. Especially with a team that doesnt rush and defend the drop pods.

    Picking the right cards helps too. When I am imperial on the 20 vs 20 map, I always choose shield so I can get to the objectives rather easily.

    As for expansions, thats the new wave for game companies to milk you. No different than Dragon Age Inquisitions 3 new areas at 15 dollars each and several other games. That is just how they going to be going into the future.
