    How about finally allowing us to change defenses once placed in TW and GAC. This set and locked nonsense is beyond ridiculous at this point

    Hyperbole aside, this is something I believe we will be seeing in future updates around GAC. I cant comment on any timelines.

    While we are at a somewhat related topics, any word on the officer tools from that thread that has been forgotten for months already?

    Yes, but no official timeline that I am aware of.
  • I like this. Being more present socially is just good marketing. Brings new player base. Posting new videos of upcoming changes and such could even influence people who left the game to come back! This likely all goes without saying, seems obvious to me and outsider.
  • With the addition of Omnicrons and characters with special kit modifiers in certain game modes, now, more than ever, we need a sandbox mode.

    They will not do a sandbox mode.

    They have been discussing ways to open up certain events for repeated limited time spots to test out things like these and possibly 3v3.

    If that means opening up game modes like TW/GAC for a zero stakes venue for us to test things, that's what people generally mean when they say sandbox mode.

    Can you elaborate further? Am I understanding you right? Is this a "soon" thing or a soon thing?

    This was just a discussion point, so no timeline to speak to.

    No, not GAC/TW, at least not from the discussions we had, more along the lines of the challenges table or GW table, but modified.

    I dont see it being too interactive, as far as being able to set a team to fight against. But everything we discuss on topics like this is very early in the process and we dont get all the details.

    Well I hope there is some voice in their dev discussions to the effect of, "How are we supposed to evaluate these kits if we can't test them anywhere free of consequence?" The YouTubers won't be able to test any of the TW kits because they are (at least the ones I watch) in guilds that don't want them broadcasting TW matches.
  • I'm just having a hard time getting excited for Omnicron updates, especially any that are only valid in TW. It's a significant investment. I can use it at most 4 times a month... IF it isn't set on defense by an officer and IF it's approved for offense by an officer and IF I'm available in the window when I'm permitted to use it.

    Correct, that is what spurned the conversation.
  • Apart from skimming this thread every now and then haven't really paid it much attention. I am curious though if any of the many posts resulted in a deeper explanation or a behind the scenes look at anything?

    I've mostly ignored it as well. But just yesterday, Kyno was able to confirm that one my concerns has at least been brought up in dev discussions and they are considering some avenue to slightly alleviate that concern.

    So not much... but something ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Not ignored, Doja has many things in the works, but as was said multiple times this was never intended to be a direct ask/answer process.

    This was designed to give him input on what player are looking for and want to see, so that he can grow his efforts into those locations and bring about more insight as they build up communication.

    OK, like I asked though has it led to anything? I would of thought a year would of been sufficient to get some juicy topics that could be talked about. Didn't really expect anything in the thread as such other than maybe an acknowledgement of a topic that could/would be followed up on.

    Unless my grasp of the initial post was incorrect. My reading of it was that the player posts here would give doja topics that he/cg would provide more information/insight into? (Not necessarily in this thread but maybe something like a subject matter post or video.)

    So basically like the old Q&As, except slower and more clunky. Speaking of which, anyone still remembers the talk about some new and improved format for that?

    The new and improved format was a series of trivia videos with Operation Metaverse, which, let’s be real, was a complete bust. I’m pretty sure the vast majority of the community didn’t even know it happened, and there was no discussion about it anywhere in contrast to the old Q&As. So Doja apparently went back to the drawing boards but it doesn’t seem like anything has come of it aside from the occasional dev interview. But to be fair to Doja he was been busy with planning the Speed GAC (which I didn’t personally care for but I can understand took a lot of time)
  • I have a question regarding the battle pass: it seems you guys are committed to the BP, but unless I'm mistaken the only way to get it is by purchasing it with real currency.
    I haven't spent money on this game, but i have spent money on other battlepasses; specifically for Call of Duty and Fortnite. The reason why those battlepasses appeal to me is that they both cost in game currency(which I had to purchase) and actually give the user the ability to earn almost(if not all) the credits to purchase the value of the next pass.
    My question is are there plans to possibly offer the BP for in game currency (ie purples)?

    This has been brought up, and is a possibility. All of this is very new and will be fleshed out over time. Not to say that this will happen, just that it has been discussed.
  • Please setup a guild arena mode or sandbox mode. I know it's been said before, but needs to be brought up every now and then. It would be a great mode to extract the money they are looking for.
  • When is ea going to admit it's driving the game to P2P and rewarding the pathetic whales who drop all their cash on this?

    So people who pay to keep the game running shouldn’t get any rewards at all for doing so?

    Should be the early part of next month. I thought this was listed in one of the announcements by Doja.

    Can we talk about how the plan is apparently to absolutely destroy mid-level guilds by requiring they be 300mil to obtain r9 mats?
