I finally decided to buy the game sooner than I tough this weekend since he wasn’t expensive at my store.
And I wanted to give the game a chance.
So here is my opinion (I don’t know how many time I played it) :
The solo is great, it was really interesting and complete gameplay-wise, Iden and her teammates are interesting, I like the fact we met and played with a lot of famous characters. It wasn’t THAT short (I played in the highest difficulty) about 8 hours I would’ve said. We get a lot of credits from it (5000+ 500 for each missions), you also unlock some specific crates for heroes.
The arcade mode is fun, but the daily limit is kinda sad, so I play it regularly instead of only playing that.
I don’t fully know how the reward works, I get 100 credits by finishing a level 1 mission so maybe you get more credits with a higher difficulty. Each mission length max 3 minutes.
I also find sad that we cannot play with a friend online on this mode.
Now on the multiplayer, it has a few modes that are very interesting (I played 3 of the 5 gamemodes).
There is the galactic assault that bring a lot of various objectives with a lot of players, the maps are big enough so we don’t get to be at +8 people at the same point. I find this mode very fun, it have a lot of variations, and even if there is a lot of people the teamplay remain present when you play with your squad, I like this a lot.
HeroesVSVilain is so much better than the old version. There is no rounds. When the round begin, the game assign a player that you must kill, and another one that you must protect (in your team). Each team must kill 10 differents targets. (The targets are shared between you teammates)
This mode is really fun, teamplay is required, no way to heal ourselves (except if you’re a target). Plus we finally get to see more than 1 jedi/sith per game and this is great ^^
Strike mode also is objective based, but with smaller teams and no heroes. The objective are less various than with the galactic assault, but they are fine. I surprisingly enjoyed this gamemode less than the galactic assault (I often rathered played on a small team), since the team work is way less fun than with the other modes, mostly because people don’t play a lot the objective here.
So the game is fun.
I finally get to the point that interest a lot of people, the lootboxes and heroes.
Trough this week end, I’ve been able to buy Vador and Luke (worth 15000 each), a lootbox, a card that interest me for a class I play.
You unlock guns by playing (literally doing kills with any weapon, for each class).
In my lootbox there wasn’t anything interesting so I will keep saving my credits for when I feel to buy something. Because I don’t feel like I need them.
Trough the week-end I played a lot of games, I always was at least with an above-average score (if I was not at the highest ranks). I have been killed a lot of times. But I didn’t feel bad because of any special card, it often was my mistake. Plus in galactic assault, you really feel your impact is way less important than any other gamemode, I always played with my team to find differents ways to the objective, and it didn’t matter which card we had. And I often won, I’d say I won 70% of my game this weekend.
So right now I will just save my credits for heroes (and I will probably won’t buy any heroes that don’t interest me until I see the price of the DLC heroes). And I’ll see if I get bored enough to buy lootbox.
Edit : I forgot to say that even if there is a lot of different cards, there is a lot that don’t interest me (and thus I won’t invest in them), making the grinding way less difficult than it is supposed to.
