Thanks for the tips guy. I didn't know homing shot or Ion Torpedo could lock onto air vehicles. That will help alot once I get ion torpedo unlocked. I'll try fighter squadron again for a handful of matches to see if I get better.

 

Even with all these flaws, playing with a friend with communication makes all the difference. I honestly don't want to play this game alone since playing with one of my brothers is 100% more fun since we can strategize and help each other. At least until the partner system screws up and I randomly can't respawn back on my brother because he turned green.. and he dies in at a tunnel entrance we were both holding because I got spawned half way across the map. -_-; That is the biggest bug they need to fix asap and its a spawn issue since I can't spawn on my own damn partner. All the spawn issues need to be fixed more than anything else.

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.
