how bout just
no f'ing jedi, like I said, this isnt JA, this isnt KoTR, this is BATTLEFRONT I dont want and retarded jedi who sit at the CPs and use 1337 to make my brain overload from the retardedness

on the cap down idea, it would be ok if it was better than the ****ty cap down maps that some people cant get over, they were good when the tools came out, but come on, theyre old and really not that good anymore.

I need to yell about the AI problems again, here. Firstly, when you are shooting at a vehicle, THE VEHICLE SHOULD SHOOT BACK! Most just sit there doing nothing, especially walkers! And someone get the AI to consistently TOWARD the enemy.
Now that I'm done with that... I think the whole orders system needs some work. When you're like a grunt or a normal unit, even when you're general, you shoudn't be able to get more than a couple people to like follow you for a little bit. But on the other extreme, if you're a commander unit like Clone Commander, You should be able to get at least 4 to 6 men to follow you and unlike it is now STAY right there following you until you tell them to move out or THEY DIE. And you should be able to tell them to go in a particualr direction AND THEY GO THERE. I mean, if you've ever watched the animated series, all the commaner had to do was make a little sign with his hand and all the clones would go ahead or activate their grapples or come streaming at full charge out of the toaster oven or whatever. But you get the idea
01-17-2007, 11:35 PM
I totaly agree with that, up til 2142 the battlef series have had ****y ass ai who are more likely to be manning a MG/ turret facing the wrong way then actualy helping

yes i sort of mentioned that Relenzo but yeh it would be totally cool!
01-18-2007, 11:52 AM
mentioned, what?
 Daft Adidas
01-18-2007, 12:07 PM
a commander of some sort leading other grunts and telling them go here and there.
01-18-2007, 1:49 PM
There just is NO challenge for anyone who had been playing for like 3 months, is there?
Got more challenge playing Halo 2 single player!

OK Here's an IDEA! Make decent single player levels. Not multiplay levels cut down...PROPER SP levels. Heck even Halo managed to fit squad-like bits into a game without removing the power of the main star.

Also, make sure it's co-op online and off.
01-18-2007, 1:50 PM
a commander of some sort leading other grunts and telling them go here and there.A bit 'Republic Commando' isn't it? Could work if the game was more 'mature' ala the Battlefield series where you don't die so fast! (Seriously, screw Polis Massa!) If teamwork matters, that'd be cool. Heck you should gain points for working in teams (team captures, team kills, assists to frags etc).
 Daft Adidas
01-18-2007, 1:59 PM
yes the only decent teamwork stuff is where they give you ammo or health that's it! More teamwork!
01-18-2007, 4:52 PM
when you spawn you could get three or so team mates that follow you around and take orders like republic commando and have those cool defibulators.
01-18-2007, 5:07 PM
defribulaters? I don't see how that fits into battefront... unless the clones are having heart attacks.
 Captain Sparrow
01-18-2007, 8:20 PM
There should be no "squad commanding" in BFIII. If I want to play RC style, then I'll play RC. Maybe you could get a couple of guys to follow you around, but you shouldn't be able to give them constant orders. I want a game where I can just be some random soldier and participate in the great battles of the SW saga (and a few extras of course ;)).
01-18-2007, 8:32 PM
I sorta agree, it is sort of like someone said erlier about playing the average soldier. However, when you're not the average soldier, it shoudln't play like the average soldier! And IT JUST DOESN"T MAKE ANY SENSE that the Clone Commanders have like no control. Has ANYONE watched the Clone Wars series? They don't jive.
01-18-2007, 9:43 PM
then remove them, BF1 was fine with out them, also remove the profile rank, why the hell would a general be doing the exact same stuff as a private, at least make it realistic so the highest is captain or something
01-18-2007, 10:48 PM
when I said defibulater i mean whatever that thing is you can use on your team mates on RC when they are near death, so you can use it in bf3 when a player is disintigrating on the ground ,so you can bring them back to life before they dissappear.
 Daft Adidas
01-19-2007, 3:18 AM
yes, like other people in BF2 give some to you but you never give some to them, unless you die, lol!
01-19-2007, 6:58 AM
How about....A MEDIC CLASS! Now there's an idea. A class that can revive those fragged (but not gibbed) within 30 seconds.

Or, if you want to be leet and copy BF2142, every starting rifleman can dish out medpacks, but apon "promotion" they get a defribulator for revival, but it's optional.
01-19-2007, 7:56 AM
I don't think they're gonna copy 2142. We'll just buy it. And medic class... it might work, but in Star Wars, not even the medics get spared, so it migh be stupid. You couldn't even shoot the enemy.
 Daft Adidas
01-19-2007, 10:52 AM
yes if your in ab ig frenzy and some guys being splattered.

"Hey mate i'll help you!" There gonna shoto at you if it takes thiry seconds so maybe five to ten."
01-19-2007, 12:08 PM
Check your posts for mistakes, you look like an idiot when you say "ab ig" and "shoto".
 Daft Adidas
01-19-2007, 12:12 PM
ibut i;ve been eating cake. :D
01-19-2007, 12:51 PM
That was funy agian, yes, but be warned, Aida: It won't be funny again.
 Daft Adidas
01-19-2007, 12:55 PM
lol ok no more bad spelling i promise. :D back to topic more ideas?
 Darth Newfie
01-19-2007, 3:50 PM
Put civilian craft in maps like coruscant streets or mos eisly that you can hijack without the fuisoncutter, and have animations for it. Or shoot the driver and remove th body.
 Daft Adidas
01-19-2007, 3:56 PM
Oh my god Newfie good idea.

I just killed a few Droids on the streets of Coruscant and there are normal people, walking/running about and also low/high flying aircraft of normal people and you can hijack them.

:D Well done Newfie!
01-19-2007, 4:02 PM
Battlefront is its own game it doesn't need to be turned into Grand theft auto f**king Star Wars.
 Captain Sparrow
01-19-2007, 4:03 PM
#677 I'd rather not have Star Wars: Grand Theft Speeder.
 Daft Adidas
01-19-2007, 4:06 PM
lol yeh i guess so, well that's down the drain gee it's hard to think of good SWBF2 ideas without changing to another game. You have to keep it SWBF2ish.
01-19-2007, 4:27 PM
Still, it makes sense. And it would only be a minor element on a few maps. You wouldn't do it on Dagobah or Hoth for example.
 Captain Sparrow
01-19-2007, 4:30 PM
Actually, it doesn't make sense. Clones don't shoot civilians or steal their vehicles. And most likely, there wouldn't be any civilians walking around while a major battle is going on anyway, unless they just want to die.
 Daft Adidas
01-19-2007, 4:32 PM
Yeh and even if they wanted to die they could by deathsticks.
01-19-2007, 4:46 PM
lololol. Ah, well, it was a nice idea, but it died a quick death. Being like another game had stunted this thread considerably.
01-19-2007, 4:49 PM
Actually, it doesn't make sense. Clones don't shoot civilians or steal their vehicles. And most likely, there wouldn't be any civilians walking around while a major battle is going on anyway, unless they just want to die.

They can't always get out of the way. Unfortunetly, many civilians have been killed in war. Clones or Rebels might not indiscrimently kill, but Stormtroopers would and have. Likely civilians would be running away from threats or hiding in they're houses or in bunkers. Where bombs might wipe them out. And they're speeders will be sitting around in the streets. If a Clone despertly needs transportation and they're aren't any friendly vehicles nearby...
01-20-2007, 3:18 AM
i think an upgrade to the space battles would be cool, like the ability to have wingmen, and if at all possible land to space battles.
 Daft Adidas
01-20-2007, 3:44 AM
?? Ok wingmen would be ok but land to space battles? What the?
01-20-2007, 7:18 AM
Jesus Christ Aida. Battles on land and space at the same time. There is a few mod maps with that concept.
 Daft Adidas
01-20-2007, 7:23 AM
i don't use mods i just like the game but it could di with a few better thigns done to it that's why we're here.
01-20-2007, 9:00 AM
A few changes. Lookes like Aida has an understatement knack. IT NEEDS TWELVE PAGES OF FIXES, MY SIG IS DEDICATED TO THIS MAJOR TASK!
 Daft Adidas
01-20-2007, 9:01 AM
lol, hmm well i hate weapons heating up! Reloading is ok every weapon should have to reload apart from sabres ect but heating up just gets on my nerves.
01-20-2007, 10:42 AM
Heating up makes plenty opf sense and was always a good idea, especially with fighters. In WWII the pilot fired in small streams, not continuously, so the gunb wouldn't heat up.
 Daft Adidas
01-20-2007, 10:50 AM
hmm but this is Star Wars super technology? Well maybe not SO MUCH heating up just a bit less.
01-20-2007, 11:57 AM
Maybe a good idea for fighters there. I'm not sure that even the WWII fighters heated up so fast. :D
 Daft Adidas
01-20-2007, 12:05 PM
yeah they do heat up fast! lol" :D
01-20-2007, 12:17 PM
I'm going to say this again, BFII should have tactics. That would make my commmand ideas have more sense. But that system needs fixing, it sucks as it is.
01-20-2007, 12:21 PM
A few changes. Lookes like Aida has an understatement knack. IT NEEDS TWELVE PAGES OF FIXES, MY SIG IS DEDICATED TO THIS MAJOR TASK!

And that's not including my old thread that was closed!
 Daft Adidas
01-20-2007, 12:55 PM
yeh i read that but hadn't signed up yet and someone thought that KOTOR was a card game ^___^ anyway yeah and er the difference between space and land is stupid, land is easy! Space is gard they shoudl be fairly equal or before you play it asks.

Easy, Medium, Hard and Super Battlefront hard!
01-20-2007, 3:52 PM
Maybe there could be space to space like your capital ship(s) almost dead you get in your ship jump to hyperspace appear in another space battle take one of those capital ships bring it back and finish off the enemy returning the barrowed ship when your done and defeat the gallaxy. Ha Ha Ha :vsd: :vsd: :vsd: :smash:
 Daft Adidas
01-20-2007, 3:54 PM
hmmm. maybe i dunno i don't think two battles would be going on at the same time and hyperspace in Battlefront is just isn't right.
01-20-2007, 3:59 PM
How about rain and snow and tornados and hurricanes and so on.
 Daft Adidas
01-20-2007, 4:04 PM
hurricanes would be cool but silly but we kind of already have that, on Kamino it rains, Mygeeto it's snows, Tatooine sunny ect.
