most DISLIKED unit
 
Just wondering on people's opions and thoughts on their disliked of BF2, so feel free to comment and vote for the most disliked unit in the poll. I dislike the Droideka, because of how weak it is, without it's sheild.

Commander Obi-Wan 11-18-2005 01:20 AM

Where is the option for those who don't dislike any of the units?

hk47 11-18-2005 05:11 AM

rocket man because he only has one main weapon which takes about 2 seconds to fire and get close to a target then the target goes away and it takes ages to blow up a tank

zerted 11-18-2005 06:43 AM

I'd have to say the engineer. Most people try to use him, meaning he must be over powering in some way. Most people should want to use the normal trooper.

Commander Obi-Wan 11-18-2005 09:52 AM

IF I had to choose i'd have to choose the sniper...since I don't use....wait that doesn't work....well, I'll have to say Droideka, even though I only have used him once. But, I don't really like new controls.

SirLancelot 11-18-2005 10:30 AM

I really like all the classes. Though, I would like them to maker the sniper more of a sniper in the next game.

Darth Alec 11-18-2005 12:42 PM

I dislike the new sniper, they just dont have the touch, or the accuracy if under close attack. :)

PoiuyWired 11-18-2005 01:07 PM

Add a sticker on your monitor and snipers are pretty good. I am annoyed by the heavy trooper though. In BF1 they have an upgraded pistol so they can actually do damage up close. Now their rockets are downgraded against Troops, load time increased, and still take ages to down a vehicle(not fast with sweet spot either)

At least give them either a better pistol or better rocket AoE, or make them load faster
.

Redtech 11-18-2005 01:25 PM

Sniper ain't that bad. Check out the size of her ass! 3rd person view forever, methinks.

With so few vehicle/dominated levels, what's the point of the rocket guy? Especially when my teammates are so efficient with grenades.

No they don't...

Anyway, I voted Jedi. You all know the drill.

SirLancelot 11-18-2005 04:51 PM

I have no real problem with the sniper not being able to do damage up close with his rifle. That's what they have the pistol for. I want the rifle to be a one shot one kill weapon when hitting certain areas of the body(though people would probably scream (OVERPOWERED). Right now, it isn't. The zooming is great, though.

ScoutTrooper95 11-18-2005 05:13 PM

Im going to have to say commander. The only one I like is the clone commander. I still havent tired the new Droideka.

Rogue74 11-18-2005 08:18 PM

The blaster pistols in BF1 were great secondary weapons, especially if you were a shocktrooper or sniper. Now they usually overheat before you can defeat someone good who is armed with a blaster rifle.

Engineer is probably my least favorite.

Commander Obi-Wan 11-18-2005 08:26 PM

I like all the units. I use the Heavy trooper quite alot and the engineer. Both are very helpful.

MagnaGuard 11-18-2005 11:50 PM

2 annoying facts about destroyer droids:

#1. if rolling in long bodies of water as tall its height in a ball, you die in three seconds. (for all versions)
#2. in order to roll, you have to push circle when your used to pushing triangle in Battlefront 1. (this is for PS2)

Oh yes...I choose Droideka has my least favourite.

MachineCult 11-19-2005 07:20 AM

Theres only three maps with water on them, and theres only enough to kill you in Kashyyyk.

Your second annoying fact is the most petty complaint i've ever heard, it took me a few minutes of playing as the Droideka to get used to it.

You can get good without the sticker.

Same here.....early this morning like 2:00am, I was playing as CIS vs Republic in IA, and I used droideka for like the first time (used it like once in Mygeeto and was destroyed as soon has I deployed for the ball), anyway I used the Droideka and I was used to it quite soon. Plus, you can change the controls for moving your unit.

THX1138_Scorpio 11-19-2005 05:07 PM

Well, I voted dark trooper because I didn't see bothans. And then after I voted I realized that I could have voted for jedi.... I would have voted for jedi definetely. At least you can disable/restrict jedi, but not alot of servers do it. If people saw how much fun the game was WITHOUT jedi/heroes, I think thered be alot more quality servers, but also more nubs complaining "Y rnt jedi on this server??!?!!?!!"
Jedi take no skill, if you want to be a jedi, play Jedi Academy.

MachineCult 11-19-2005 06:24 PM

No-ones complained about Jedi in the game since it's release, you know why? Because they work great in the game.

Go play SWBF1.

Or maybe because beating a dead horse = bad.

SirLancelot 11-19-2005 07:30 PM

Jedi are the signature characters of Star Wars and the way they were implemented in this game was well done. I have no problem with them being included.

DarthAve 11-19-2005 10:24 PM

Commander. Their guns suck, and they're such wannabe heavy troopers.

jawathehutt 11-19-2005 11:36 PM

HordaK 11-20-2005 01:57 AM

I play the sniper most, but i dislike the way they made him...

A Sniper rifle should not be a close combat weapon like it is atm, you should not be able to fire without zooming, o.k. the disruptor in the Jedi Knight series is the same, u can use it without zooming in, so u can even use it as a "Pistol"...but thats not a sniper weapon i want...i want a "1 shot + reload" rifle that kills with 1 shot or at least 2 (if i hit the legs)... otherwise i dont get a real sniper feeling if i dont need to zoom to be precise with my rifle, some of u will say now "the sniper will suck then with a 1 shot + reload rifle" and then i will say, "no u just need skill now to be a good sniper", atm its just an "oh i missed but who cares i can waste 5 more "bullets" until i have to reload"-feeling, i hope some "sniper fans" out there know what i mean. I would prefer the Projectile Rifle which u can use in the "movie battles 2 mod" for JA, this is a "1 shot + reload" rifle, which is really deadly in the right hands, and its a weapon that gives a better sniper feeling than the Battlefront SRs give. I really hope that LA will make the Battlefront sniper some day a real Sniper not just a "Blaster Rifle Trooper with 1 more zoom level" like its now.

Some of u will agree with me and others will try to tell me that its a sniper with a modern Sniper Rifle, and i will say then, "maybe it is, but theres no real sniper feeling" and for that feeling i even miss the prone

hk47 11-20-2005 07:11 AM

i bearly use sniper only to get the auto turret grid and sometimes i get 5 kills without reloading in close combat but i only use it when its needed otherwise i use it for killing from long range

Redtech 11-20-2005 11:03 AM

Erm, with no targeting cursor, unless zoomed, you should be laughed at if a n00b sniper kills you at close range.

Anyway, sniper rifles are not all bolt-action (of course, that gets into a realism debate).

I know, replace the sniper with the Quake 3 railgun. That way, if you miss, you're never going to be able to live to take the second shot! (4 second cooldown time). Sorted, another class nerfed.

hk47 11-20-2005 11:48 AM

i like useing it for close range but i normaly use soldier for that.

Bane706 11-21-2005 04:39 PM

The Worst unit is the Imperial Commander w/ the wimpy geanosian sonic blaster. Even though he's allright with his Launcher that is the only thing to keep him alive until ammo runs out.

Commander Obi-Wan 11-28-2005 10:56 PM

Agreed. Imperial Commander aren't that great when their ammuntion is out on the Mortar Launcher. I have to say, that the Imperial Commander is disappointment. :( Could have been better.

Redtech 11-29-2005 05:55 AM

That's a bit like saying the Bothan is rubbish when he reloads his disintegraor in the middle of a fight.

The imperials are meant to suck. ;)

Commander Obi-Wan 11-29-2005 01:34 PM

I don't mind the Bothan Spy. I personally don't use any of the cammanders except the Clone Commander. But, I am stil am disappointed with the Imperial Officer. Could've been better.

droidekaslayr 11-29-2005 04:27 PM

i going with commander, the clone is the only good one
btw ne1 who votes for regular soldier should have their game destroyed

biny 11-29-2005 05:40 PM

I hate Droidekas. They make me wanna shoot something. So I shoot them and then I DIE!!!!
I've never played as them because I don't play as CIS, but I'm sure that they wouldnt be much different from BF1.

Well the sniper rifle is deadly at close range. Headshot is sooo easy.

Targeting Crusor? There is something called "tape a cross on your monitor"

The Eyes 11-29-2005 07:45 PM

I picked Bothan spy because I never do good with them but they annoy me as the empire, but sniper is a close second because there arent many good sniping spots anymore.

Commander Obi-Wan 11-29-2005 07:58 PM

Well, it looks like the Droideka is the least favourite unit of most people. Then in second the Jet/Dark trooper and Heavy Trooper, and in third, the sniper.

Ever heard of not cheating?

You can get to a few good spots by using the sniper's auto-turret as a stepping stone...
