    As a battlefield and Star Wars fan I'm pretty pumped for this game.

    Open beta starts the 8th through the 12th. Pretty sure you can start the download on the 7th

    I'm trying this for the first time so I hope it works. My downloads always seem to stop once during the download, so I have no idea if it's even working. Any way to check?

    I'm on campus and used the PlayStation app to download the beta to my ps4. I'm going to be pissed if it isn't done when I get home. App doesn't give the progress which is annoying.

    I can join you later tonight. Game is awesome though. Didn't know what I was doing for some but first game went 39-6 as imperial. Next game as rebel got wrecked though.

    I'm pretty good so far. Walker assault is like 100% guaranteed to end in an imperial win. They need to work on spawn points but other than that its solid.

    I've had no problems at all on PlayStation. I don't know about you guys, but I thought this game was pretty easy to pick up and get into due to the absence of recoil. The walker assault needs balancing, but damn those things are fun to control. Flying is difficult and I don't fully understand what some of the specialty weapons are, a tutorial would have been nice. So far I love this game.

    was watching Twitch streams earlier in the week and some of the people who've been involved with the game said this is true but it's due to lvl 5 cap as there's no anti-armor weapons really in the game right now

    said with more normally ranked people it breaks down to 50/50

    Lots of fun, preordered the game after playing on ps4. Hoth is frustrating right now, and spawns really need work. Could have had some explanation for the powerups too. Looking forward to the full game

    That's the only way I've won as the rebels thus far. Pretty much no anti vehicle weapons makes is insanely hard to win as the rebels.

    gameplay is pretty meh. not having classes is lame. random spawns are lame. random item drops are lame.

    this is only a minor gripe but the fact that you aren't immediately in control of your tie fighter/x-wing/whatever when you spawn above hoth sucks. you're a sitting duck for people that are already flying around.

    Dropping an orbital strike on the AT-AT's will take out about 70% of their health.

    So if you get one don't waste it on anything else.
