EA CEO: SWBFII Missteps Clouded an Otherwise Great Game, But Now There’s a Strong Player Sentiment

The player base has definitely bounced back with the last few patches

Don’t know why you’re getting disagrees, they came out and said the playerbase recently hit the same numbers as launch week didn’t they?

I'm still hesitant to give them money for it, but I'm glad to have been hearing that the game is in a much better state than before. I still have issues with some of the games overall design though. Maybe if it goes on sale again I'll give it a shot.

It wasn't a great game though, that's the problem. It was a trimmed back title, missing content, pushed out with the "missteps" of abhorrent anti-consumer monetisation and play-to-win loot boxes.

As for now, well I couldn't honestly say. Maybe the bounce back shows quality in the title, but I won't be playing it.

5€ if you wait for a sale.

The player base did come back, but it doesn't justify the p2w lootbox BS. Clouded a good game yes, but disgusting implementation of such tactics is not a very good excuse.

Nah, the starfighter assault mode was done well. I prefer Battlefront 1s gameplay for the ground combat though because it was far simpler and the walker assault mode was leaps and bounds better than the launch modes for BF2 and felt so much more like Star Wars.

But of course everyone wanted to have their super competitive skill based shooter as though there already wasn't tons of them on the market and DICE caved.
