I am a big fan of CTF, but the MP mode I can't wait for is Siege. Ever since Return to Castle Wolfenstein was released with objective based MP, I have been addicted to strategy + FPS + goal type stuff.

What classes for Siege would you want to be? The classes, as provided by the wonderful Stormhammer in the FAQ, are . . .


Assault
Heavy Weapons
Demolitions
Scout (sniper)
Tech
Jedi


I would prefer Demolitions, Scout, or Tech.

Can you please explain the whole concept of siege, cause the explanation's I've seen before kind of confused me.

No problem! Here goes . . .

Siege is a Multiplayer game mode with two teams. Each team has a list of objectives to complete in the map. The team that completes the objectives wins. A "Siege map" might be like the one below:

There is an Imperial base. It can be destroyed by blowing up the base's power system. The Rebel Alliance has a task force that is going to blow it up.

Objectives for the Imperials might be . . .

1. Stop the Rebels from getting inside the base.
2. Protect the generator.

Objectives for the Rebels might be . . .

1. Get inside the Imperial Base.
2. Destroy the Power System.

Now usually the maps will have a set timer so that the team that completes the objectives in teh time limit wins.

Assault, Heavy weapons or Jedi.

Up front is where it's at.

Or laying down some serious firepower.

Hiya! I'm new here!!

I just played the Demo, and my favorite was the Guardian, yellow-colored staff. It would be even cooler if you could have a staff with2 different colors...

Scout or Jedi. I know in Halo I tend to snipe a lot with the pistol and sniper rifle so I figure if Scouts have snipers, I've got some experience already.

oh, and jedi or scout for me!!

Jedi, demolitions, or heavy weapons. Any one that I can use to destroy things :)

I think I'm going to have to try all of them before I settle on any particular class. I probably won't be a Jedi, though - I want to focus on guns or explosives. If I get my broadband sorted out, and get some low pings, I might try Scout (for sniping :D ), but I'm not averse to storming in to hammer their defences :p so Assault would suit me fine. And Demolitions might appeal to that part of me that likes to lay traps. :D

So Scout, Assault or Demolitions would be the primary classes...

Well considering we really don't know anything about the classes themselves (except perhaps the Jedi) I'd have to play them and see how they handle and if I like that playing style first.

You can. See this thread for details on changing your blade colors:

I might go with a Scout or Assult. I've no idea about what they are, except that one has a lot of firepower and the other has a Tenloss.:D

Scout or Sith. Always Imerials. Never the Rebel scum.

Well I think they might be able to repair stuff like AT-STs maybe open locked doors or something like that.

Well since I havent played siege yet I really cant say what would be best for me but from what Ive read and what I like I think Id go with Jedi and Scout.

A Mod should make a poll for this.

I'm hoping this is like the Siege mode in Tribes 2... I know a lot of you probably don't know about that game, but its a 2 year old MP game which plays a little like guns only JO, in that you have a widerange of firearms, and instead of force jump you have jetpacks. T2 is still a popular game amongst a good number of diehard fans, although siege is an underplayed gametype (ctf rules).

Siege there works similar to how it was described above, although the roles aren't set at the beginning of the game, you can jump into any role at anytime (makes more sense when you don't have a jedi-type role). The whole point is similar to the first half of the old JO SP demo... get past the enemy to disable a series of switches and overtake the enemy base. In T2 its a time-based game, where after the base is taken, the teams switch from offense to defense and defense to offense, and the new offense has to take the base in less time than their opponents did.

That's really a blast, I'm hoping JA Siege will be too.

I wonder if the new "Whiner" class will be popular?

The role this class plays is to complain about the other team being "cheap" and accuse them of "cheating."

He has a variety of taunts including "lamer!" "grip/conc whore!" and "votekick him!"

His wide repetoire of emotes include shaking his finger at opponents, folding his arms and shaking his head disapprovingly and wiggling his fanny from side to side.

This class has only fists and a chatbox over his head all the time. His skin is brightly colored and easy to see on the other side of the map. From his inventory he can place little cardboard signs that say "No Laming" and "Saber off = Peace!!" with upside down smiley faces on them that other players can destroy.

The Whiner's special power is his ability to spawn a squad of Gonk droids to follow him around whever he goes (going "gonk gonk gonk" continuously).


The purpose of this class is to annoy the other team and demoralize them. While they argue and try to flame him, their base is snuck into and their stuff is destroyed/stolen.







just kidding.. hopefully not. ; )

Assault and Scout. Sniping people is fun.

Heavy weapons or demolitions. :D

Probably Assult or Scout, and I may occasionally play Jedi/Sith just for some fun, but I really like sniping people, or if they have enough Drivable vehicles, then I'll go about driving them all.

Well, we still don't have any details regarding each class, so a lot of this is based on assumptions and guesstimates. If the tech class is like the engineer, or something in other games, then maybe you build stuff, repair stuff, or can operate/place turrets, etc. It would be good if only a tech could hack systems effectively too...like opening doors, or disabling enemy turrets, maybe.

Not too long to wait now before we find out. ;)

Heh, this was by far the most popular class "cross-game-mode" in JKII. I'm hopeful this time the community will provide players with a little more humor. ;)

1. As said, that's pretty much the norm for all multiplayer
2. I'd be more concerned about the demolitions guy who thinks his own team's sutff would look that much cooler in pieces, or the guy who wants to try out his conc on everyone in the server.

Whiners can be ignored, losers can't.

PS: If my multiplayer experience proves true, whiners really like to complain about that sniper that took them out while they were typing a long-winded complaint again the last guy that took a shot at them. ;)

Oooohhh, when I get KotOR for PC i'll try to blow, hack computers and slash my way through it...

I am still curious what is the difference between Assault and Heavy Weapons, but it won't be too long until we find out!

I don't know what I want to be, I'll have to play the game first. However, I know I WON'T be picking Assault or Heavy Weapons. Most likely I will either be driving the vehicles (from what I hear there will be vehicles in Siege) so I'll be Tech so I can repair my own vehicles, or if I get better at saber combat (I consider myself above average, but I still have alot of room for improvement) I might be a jedi, if I just feel destructive and evil I might go demolitions, every once in a while I might go scout if nobody else is. Unless of course other classes are needed and nobody will pick them (see next sentence). I have a feeling that severs are going to be filled with only Jedi and Scout 90% of the time, with lots of n00bs screaming how they can't open doors, not knowing they need a demolitions guy :P.
