    Im furious that they removed the option to disable TAA in this game - the option was there in the beta, but removed for the final game. It's especially bad for sli users, as temporal anti aliasing fares very poorly on multi gpu systems.

    Yea its a bit weird that, I could swear there was an option to disable AA entirely in the beta as I recall playing the game that way to get overall crispier visuals.

    There was, and i've complained about them removing it on the official battlefront technical forum... but the only reply EA has made on matter is "There is no option to turn it off, if you have performance issues, lower your resolution" which litterally just made me /facepalm

    Anyone playing Galactic Assault online beware of the Kashyyk map, it currently has a bug that makes the server lag like hell! I first noticed it a few days ago in the morning and thought I had been put in to a US based server or something, but then I was getting it in the evening again and last night finally confirmed it when I had to play Kashyyk multiple times and everytime the map lagged for everyone on the server but the next map or the map before was perfectly fine. Hopefully it'll be fixed soon as the rubberbanding is doing my head in.

    Is this game any good? Why do they insist on putting 5 hrs worth of single player content in games and not 20 or more. Its ridiculous! Single player should come 1st and multiplayer 2nd.. What a cop out!

    Because loot crate gambling scams don't work as well when the 'competitive' element is not present.

    You can be fairly sure that is why the arcade mode is so sparse as well.

    Dice suck at single player at any rate, the last good SP Battlefield campaign was Bad Company 2.

    To answer your question, there is enjoyment to be had, sadly the release has been badly tainted by EA's boundless avarice.

    At any rate? I liked the BF3, BF4 and BF1 Single player a lot more than the "always boom, boom, michael bay" call of duty single player.

    To each their own.

    I'll give you that BF 3 was ok (I actually played that again quite recently), BF1 was absolute rubbish and so was BF4, again, subjective.

    I really like BF4 but I do feel BF4 should not have been released so soon after 3 as it did feel like more of the same when released.

    I should clarify that I was talking about the SP campaigns specifically and not the overall games.

    After all the drama i was ready to forget about this game.
    When i learned that whatever your involvement and score , you're roughly getting the same xp and rewards was a true final blow for me.

    I had watched a stream where the streamer was playing with a friend and the streamer had gotten nearly the same amount of xp as his friend, the streamer had come down the bottom of the score board and his friend was the top player... on a packed server, that's a bit strange.

    I have not played BF1's campaign, but... BF3's campaign bored the hell out of me. I tried so hard to be serious and "real"... but it fell to hard on tired military cliches and tropes. It made it feel as if the game didn't have an identity of it's own. But, in a very different way... reminded me of Michael Bay.
    Yes, CoD go the Bay way with big explosions and set pieces and such, but BF3 went hard into the "MERICA!!!! PATRIOTISM!!!!!" path. The hard edge "military porn" that Michael Bay has a tendency of shoving into his films.

    Bf4 was even worse in this case. A bland and uninspired campaign with forgettable characters.


    Hardline I actually really enjoyed the campaign, it played like a B-level TV cop drama, and... when compared to the modern day military flood of titles... it actually felt a bit fresh just for being different in it's setting.

    Had to cancel 3 space battle sessions because i was waiting with 1-2 other ppl and it said '8 more players needed' for ages. 1 guy came in, another left and it went on for 5mins until i searched for another space battle session.
    And the same with the next and the one after that.

    Could only play galactic battles.

    I think this game is dying already. Ppl who are waiting for a sale will only have the SP campaign and the bot matches to have fun with.

    Well to be honest, starfighter assault could be pretty fun even just with bots. So far I haven't had any problems to find games of any kind, however, the servers were rubberbanding/laging like hell in the last 2 days, and it was especially frustrating with starfighters as I literally crashed several times because I got teleported in front of a wall/asteroid due to the heavy lag.

    In the long run though, yeah, unless they come up with a completely revamped progression system (which I doubt is even doable just like that), the game will die out. The game IS fun, for me at least, the gameplay, BUT the progression system ruins it completely. I mean I came out MVP for several matches and my points are capped at 30.000 (even though I got over 70k in some matches) and so are the credits at 415. Now I would have AFKed the same round and get last place I still would have gotten ~200-280 credits at the end, and credits are all that matters, you can be rank 100, if you don't have credits to buy lootboxes you will run around like a noob perks wise.

    It's just so sad on so many parts. Great Gameplay, Fantastic 3D art, sound design and everything and 100% ruined by business decision.

    Battlefront 2 and BF2142 will be the only 2 Dice games i won't have bought in my lifetime. For 2 different reasons but still...

    how worthwhile is the single player in this game? im not really into the online aspect. Battlefront 1 didnt really have anything other than bot based single player.

    The campaign is very short but it's fairly good.

    The 'Arcade' mode, which is essentially bot match is pretty weak in terms of content. There is no Starfighter combat at all and only very small slices of the ground maps (and not all of them). Considering the fact that bots were one of the most requested features in BF1 (and were finally implemented in a minimal way), I'm surprised EA didn't do more to include them in BF2 (Oh wait, I'm not surprised at all as that type of thing doesn't sell loot crates).

    If you are only interested in the single player, I would wait for a sale and even then, only if you are a die hard SW fan.
