    … And Endor, really.

    According to video I watched, Turning point will feature the T-47 airspeeder and ATST, no starfighters… which I believe was the intended purpose of the airspeeder anyway, a counter to the walkers, not to engage fighters.

    The T-47 is pretty much the Rebel’s tank in this battlefront.

    Well that is the purpose, trust me the airspeeder is absolutely ineffective at fighting actual star fighters unless they’re flying very low but even then you got to get pretty close.

    I’ve gotten to be a very good pilot if I do say so myself. Played a game on Sullust where I had the most score on my team and went 15-1 all but 3 of those kills where in a A-Wing. I’m getting good at using the A-wing against infantry as well now.

    I’d like them to add this Jakku map into the normal rotations as well though which I think they will since it seems like Walker assault in the teaser we got

    Its definitely just joining rotation. I think this map will add a fun new dynamic with the debris falling around.

    If they were to add a rebel tank, I do think they’d need another Imperial walker/tank as a counter to it, I think the ATST and T47s are balanced 1v1.

    But there are no T47s on Endor which is quite unbalanced towards the Rebels since Empire gets vehicles and it’s pretty hard to destroy them since missiles can’t lock well due to trees. In matches I play Empire wins Endor 4/5.

    Empire could get some anti ground type air vehicle maybe the LAAT gunship, would be kind of neat.

    They added a map selector now, can play on Tatooine more 🙂 love the Jundland map

    LAAT is phased out, they use those gunships that were being tested on Coruscant now.

    The thing about Endor, there really is nothing to add… Its just straight up unbalanced. It was worse in the old battlefronts, but toward the rebels, even though they didnt have ATSTs.

    They used those Imperial gunships on Lothal, remember?

    I think it’d be a cool addition though

    I think they could add a way to takeover an already commissioned ATST, like they have for some vehicles in Halo.

    LAAT has cool features though since you could have more then one person controlling stuff.

    But any kind of Empire air to ground vehicle would be cool.

    Well maybe it could be special ability for Chewbacca or something but I don’t think they should really add it for everyone. AT-STs are not hard to destroy, a Smart Rocket if you got one will take down half the health especially if you hit it in the right spot. However on Endor rockets are ineffective 😛

    I think it would work well if you have to find a way on top first

    Jakku gameplay trailer tomorrow!

    I wonder if jakku missions will also be coming?

    Going to play again in a week when Jakku comes out, playing the new Assassins Creed now.

    I imagine there will be missions for it.

    Also the singleplayer Hoth map is different then the multiplayer ones. I have a feeling it was the early design for the Hoth Ice Caves map, since it’s a bit similar.

    Sullust is different as well though

    It appears as though ATAT may be in turning point.

    Yep. I watched a live stream and most people are playing the Big map with turning point. Didnt get to see walker assault or the smaller map.

    Came out today, will download and play tonight 🙂

    There’s a very big noob combo right now where if you use the Bounty Hunter trait and get it to rank 3 then your cool downs resets every kill. In combination with jump pack and bow caster it is so OP.

    Ok turning point is very fun especially on this map with all this debris and stuff. I’m loving Grave Yard of Giants map. I havnt been able to get on the smaller map yet, people are probably mainly playing the big map on Turning Point but lots probably don’t have it downloaded yet either.

    Idk this system seems to divide the population lots though since they now got two different like multiplayer things, one for Jakku maps (plus all the normal maps) and one without Jakku. I think people should just be forced to download Jakku like those forced patches or title updates, I mean it’s free anyways no point not to have it…

    I played 7 matches on Turning point…

    3 Imperial: we stopped the Rebels every time, they never took an objective (we had a good team).

    4 Rebel: Lost twice on the very last objective, won twice as well.

    I did pretty good leading my team almost every time, it’s very easy to get kills as rebels since you get tons of offensive power ups.

    It looks like a good mode. I still think it’d be fitting on all big maps, Rebels on assault on Jakku, Sullust, and Endor. Empire attacking on Tatooine and Hoth. It might be a little weird on hoth/tatooine with the corridors but it can still work somehow.

    Yah I want Turninf Point on more maps but I don’t Think many are designed well enough for this mode. Jakku is really big

    You’re right, it is very big.

    Yeah I saw that 🙂 my thoughts…

    “Star Wars™ Battlefront™ Outer Rim (March 2016) – Fight among the factories of Sullust and battle within Jabba the Hutt’s palace on Tatooine”

    Interior Sullust map inside a factor would be pretty cool, Jabba’s Palace I guess but they need better modes for these smaller maps.

    “Star Wars™ Battlefront™ Bespin (Summer 2016) – It’s hunt or be hunted in this action-packed experience set in the Cloud City of Bespin”

    In the original Battlefront the best map was Cloud City, I don’t think you can do that many maps with this location though.

    “Star Wars™ Battlefront™ Death Star (Fall 2016) – That’s no moon! One of the most iconic locations in the Star Wars universe makes its debut in Star Wars Battlefront.”

    Again it’s cool but you can’t really do that many maps, I wonder if it’s just the first Death Star?

    “Star Wars™ Battlefront™ Expansion Pack 4 – Title TBA (Early 2017) – We will have more details to share about this exciting new expansion pack in the coming months.”

    Obvious Rouge One DLC??

    —-

    Overall the thing I notice is that out of all these locations there really isn’t any opportunity for Walker Assault. You could still have supremacy or just have a new mode called Conquest like the old Battlefronts but these maps likely won’t have ground vehicles.

    I doubt this is the only planet / maps in every dlc though I’m sure they will have more.

    Looks like they’re making the game more single player as well making the single player survival map have a bunch of modes against the AI

    Turning point is coming to all planets 🙂 and this new hoth map sounds cool

    So I wonder what the heroes will be??

    Cloud City has to add Lando as an option right? Death Star likely has to add Chewbacca or maybe even Obi-Wan. Empire I’m not sure… Tarkin?? Honestly he could work as like a Han type of character…

    Where is Yavin IV?? Unless it’s going to be in the Death Star update which would actually make a lot of sense.
