Homing shot doesnt lock on. I was thinking of Ion Shot... its been a while since I've played. Supremacy would be so awesome if the spawns would be more random. It seems like DICE went really hard out of there way to make this game casual and not a reskin that they overdid it. I feel bad for them because they had a task that was a lose/lose situation from a casual standpoint. They should have made it more like BFBC2 and dealt with the crybabies.

I tried some more fighter squadron and I just can't seem to get a good feel for it. Its as frustrating for me as jet air superiority was in battlefield 4. It probably wouldn't be so bad if the hero ships were removed tho. The hero ships are completely out of place in this game mode. Someone always gets it at the beginning of the round and stays in that ship until the round is over. Nobody can kill it. If I see the millennium falcon while I'm on the empire team, I stay as far away from it as possible. If the entire team actually tried to take it down at once it might be doable after we all respawn and do it again. It has so much hp and shields that I've only seen it go as low as 1/4 hp before the round ends. And everyone gets killed by that hero ship an almost guaranteed 2 times minimum. It feels like I'm cannon fodder in this mode.

 

After playing more rounds, I've come to the conclusion that they need to remove hero pickups altogether. Keep heros in the game but make them completely rng and have people auto spawn as the hero as a nice surprise. That way everyone has a chance at getting it in every game. As it is now tho, I've still seen the same people get the hero pickup over and over again. A few times I've lucked out and got a hero pickup only to die because it spawned in front of an enemy spawn location. It makes sense that I actually got it tho, because everyone that knows the hero pick up locations knows to stay away from that location apparently. -_-;

Heh, I wish I could last forever in a hero ship. Last time I flew the Slave 1 I was killed by a suicidal X-Wing with back up from the Falcon. Fighter Squadron isn't for everyone, I learned that back when the game first released. While I like it and I can dominate in it I will admit that there are quite a few problems that do need to be fixed (random spawn locations (spawning from the same place all the time makes it easy for others to camp), less powerful hero ships (at least nerf the Falcon, the ship is OP), and for fucks sake add in a VOIP system (the mode would be so much more fun if you had the ability to talk to your fellow pilots and coordinate attack plans)).

 

Meh, I guess I've never really had trouble spawning in as a hero on an enemy's spawn point. Then again I usually only pick up hero tokens as an Imp because Boba Fett is by far the best hero in the game and being surrounded with him is like locking a kid in a candy store, free kills (homing missile plus flamethrower is a deadly combo when surrounded). I honestly think this game would be a 100 times better if they removed heroes from the game completely. Go back to old school Battlefront when it was just grunts troops against grunt troops (we're talking the first game). That was fun as all hell (even if it didn't have multiplayer functionality back then (only on the PC/Mac version)) and it only had a conquest style game mode. Then again heroes sell so it's not surprise they're in this shitty game with awesome graphics.

If either of you are on Battlefront the same time as me or my brother (he gets on at different times than me mostly), send either of us a party invite. Even my brother knows this game is best played with a partner you can coordinate with. He said as long as hes not in that one split screen mission he likes to play with his wife, he'll put on his headset and jump into any game mode. Hes even good at fighter squadron.

      Holy cow there seems to be a subscription crate for everything now. AC Filters, Clothes, Bras, Candy, etc. I actually just signed up for Umai Crate. It seems to be the most unique and best value. Its just a box full of different Japanese instant ramens. I'll report if its any better than the cheap shitty ramen you can get at the grocery store. For $25 a month, the box seems to be full of 7-9 bags/boxes/cups of various types. If I'm not impressed with the first box, I'll cancel it and feel like it was worth trying something interesting. I watched a few youtube unboxings and taste tests and it seems to be pretty well received, even in the comments on their facebook posts. I recently had authentic ramen at a local hole in the wall and it was amazing. I always thought ramen was just that shitty Nissin stuff. Some of the videos I watched, its def a little more complex than just pouring hot water into noodles and a tiny spice packet. Some of them have multiple packets to enter in before and after water is added. And apparently there are suggested fresh add ons you can buy separately at the grocery store. Things you obviously can't dehydrate like hard boiled eggs.

      Being in the grocery business for over a decade and a half you see a lot of product flops, successes, bait & switches, and other flat out BS. In one year I watched Kellogg's decrease the size of their cereal box contents by .5oz-3oz multiple times. They kept the box height the same and made them marginally slimmer each time to make it less noticeable. When Eternal water first hit the shelves it was from "Natural Springs in Norway". One day a coworker noticed it tasted different, and then noticed the bottle now said "From a municipal water source in California". I've seen Edy's Ice Cream downsize their containers, and then return them to the old size a year later calling it "Now 20% more!" Nah, you just gave back what you took. The biggest scam of the century is Halo Top ice cream and everyone that's copying it. Halo Top is just jet puffed ice cream. Breyers makes their version, and now Ben & Jerry's is going to make their line of it. You're paying for deceptive portion control. The only reason they are "low calorie" is because there is less ice cream in the cup. Since a pint is by volume and not by actual weight, most people fall for the this trick. You're paying the same, if not more money for the ice cream version of a bag of chips half filled with air. Don't support this crap. Just get regular ice cream and eat less per serving. On a final note, Breyers doesn't even call their product ice cream anymore. Its "Frozen Dairy Dessert". WTF I'm glad I have access to Blue Bell. Its still a half gallon, and its still ice cream. http://www.mouseprint.org/2013/01/21/breyers-converts-ice-creams-to-frozen-dairy-desserts/

      I've owned 3 cars now. My first car was a 1993 Nissan Maxima. It had 110k miles on it and it served me well until 215k miles. An alternator and a break hose were the only major repairs I've ever had to have done on it. Then I got a 2004 Mazda3 which also served me well from 11k miles to 80k miles, a fuel purge sensor was the only major repair I ever had to do on it. I'd still have it if some kid didn't pull out in front of my and total it. With the insurance check I should have just put a nice down payment on a brand new car... but at the time I didn't want a car note so I got the only thing I could find... a 2004 Ford Mustang. It had less miles than my Mazda so I figured it was like I just had this car all along since it was the same year. Wrong, its been the biggest POS I've ever owned. I've had to have the power steering pump replaced twice, major exhaust work twice, serpentine belt, entire ABS system, read axle, front calipers, CV joint, motor fan, and the transmission that was put in to replace the already busted on they tried to sell the car with, is about to go out again... to top it all off the paint just started crumbling off the car and now its rusting. I bought it with 65k miles and now it has 116k miles. Now that my college loan is almost finally paid off, I'm looking to get a brand new Honda Civic or VW Golf. The Civic is a car I've always wanted since wanting a car, but the Golf is very nice and has more horsepower. I'll never buy another ford car again. I remember when my exhaust system basically fell off the car because the manifold cracked... the muffler shop I went to basically said "Yeah this is pretty common at 90k miles for this car" which I was pretty much at... wtf. Screw Ford. I've never had so many catastrophic failures with a vehicle.

      I'm sick of winter. This crap needs to end. Another day of driving on snow/ice covered roads in zero degree temps that are so cold the rock salt wont melt anything. Its like every road is made of gravel and my car is bouncing all over the place. At least the tall hill roads are getting treated with strong as hell rock salt of a different blend to ensure melting and to prevent accidents. But all other streets are complete ass to drive on.
