They have more armor and different abilities than the stock ships they're based on, which makes them more than just a reskin, and therefore different. Same thing with Luke's X-Wing.
Good point, keep in mind it's been like six months since I played it last.
era restricted maps
I think it makes sense for first order stormtroopers to not be on the Death Star.
well yeah it also makes sense for clone troopers and battle droids not to be on the death star to begin with
yet we still had that in 2005 and it was fun
Yeah I get that, but Lucasfilm has become a lot more strict when it comes to canon so I can see why they wouldn't do that
I doubt it's lucasfilm doing this TBH, when it comes to a video game like this, it's a sandbox, just allow people to do whatever
plus, when it comes to canon, it's already not true, case in point: Clone Troopers on naboo
as well as cross era heroes
When it comes to the clones on naboo I think they just needed a prequel era map. And Lucasfilm is known for being incredibly nitpicky when it comes to canon. Just look at how specific they get around darth Vader and how he can never run.
While we haven't seen a large scale Droids vs Clones invasion on Naboo, Clone Troopers and droids fought on Naboo in canon. Case and point, the two-part Blue Shadow Virus arc from Clone Wars Season 1. There was also an averted invasion in Season 4, and while we didn't see it, it could be possible that the invasion in the game could have taken place then (although it probably is just because they needed a prequel map).
I think this will be temporary (if even implemented, as the builds previously shown off were build specifically to show things off) until more Prequel and Sequel heroes are added to the game.
They better allow us to at least give the clone troopers different colors, that's why I like the clones so much. They should at least do the different legions of clones like the 501st
Time to pour another 200 hours into the game
I think I may spy with my little eye...
May not be an exact color picker type system and more of a change based on what star cards you have equipped, but that heavy trooper there certainly looks different from other heavy troopers we've seen so far. Thankfully the BETA is in a few days!
This gameplay video makes it look as if the clone colors have been changed from the grey at E3 to a purply or dark maroon color (depends on the light) for the BETA. Might be proof of color customization, or might just be a more finalized appearance.
No Gunguns /salt
I'm having a fun time with the beta.
Two things I don't like: one, I hate it when I finally get enough points for a hero ship and am doing good until you run into a tiny antenna that you can't see. Second, I wish the weapon attachments would change the appearance of the gun, but I think they're changing that.
At five minutes and 4 seconds, the famous line is uttered by none other than Dee Bradley Baker.
WATCH THOSE WRIST ROCKETS!!!
They hype is real, boys!
I’m really looking forward to the game.
So I watched the interview angry joe just did with that developer from dice, I think joe acted very professional for the majority of it. It does seem like dice wants to improve. But after going through the comments of that interview and the tweet about it, I’ve realized how cancerous the fan base he’s created is.
I went there today... it was absolutely disgusting.
