Favourite Faction
 
I started to play BFII online again, and one time, while choosing faction, it was almost like a race to be at one side. So, I decided to ask which faction do you like to play the most.

I've made the votes public, and you may select more than one option. One for each era.

I prefer playing as the empire. The Republic is ok, CIS and the Rebels are terrible...

You forgot to vote for a Clone Wars era faction. ;)

For me, it depends on the map, but usually CIS and Empire. CIS because of the droid health-type, and Empire because the scout trooper is the core of pimpness.

I agree with you that many times, it depends on the map, but I try to never play as CIS online. The only thing I like about it are the heroes, and those are somewhat hard to get while playing online...

The MangaGuard, although one of the cheapest characters, is a stud. Don't care anything about the Droideka. I prefer the SBD because of both its Tri-Shot and the Wrist Rockets. The Tri-Shot can be a shotgun at close range, although it has a limit of three consecutive shots before overheating.

Alexrd 04-08-2010 06:40 AM

When I have to play as CIS, I usually pick the SBD or the sniper. The droideka is good to cover large distances, but I never use it on maps like Tantive IV or Polis Massa (basically corridors maps).

Bokken 04-08-2010 09:22 PM

You mean the spam maps? The fact that they're so popular is the reason that I don't play online so much anymore. You can't walk ten meters without either catching a rocket, getting the damage splash from a mine, or having to roll away from a nade.

Alexrd 04-09-2010 03:25 AM

I have to agree there. Yesterday I was playing on Tantive IV, and a guy was spawn raping us with mines. That's lame...

TripHammer 04-09-2010 01:39 PM

CIS and Rebels.

Bokken 04-09-2010 01:59 PM

Why Rebels, Trip?

You can vote on both. ;)

I usually play in third person and that reb sniper has the cutest butt. :P

Actually, I just enjoy playing rebels more. Same with CIS. Both these factions seem to blend better into the background of maps as well. Not all the time of course but generally. Troopers don't blend into anything but snow maps. I also enjoy shooting down the JT's and DT's. It's like shooting Peter Pan down from the sky. :P

Empire or the Clones

SBRASIL 12-25-2010 11:18 AM

I like de CIS,because their rockets,droidekas and the assins,but i never unlock the rebel spy,he is good?

Alexrd 12-28-2010 10:01 AM

Never thought the CIS would be such a favourite.

Bokken 12-28-2010 11:42 AM

Having thought about it a bit more, I would have to say that, although CIS and Empire are my preferred teams, it also depends on which map is being played. Particularly with the CIS, because despite what the other team says, not all maps are even. So for me, they're not so much a favorite as a preference.

.:Lord Revan:. 12-28-2010 12:27 PM

Republic and Empire. :D

Don't leave it open ended; why are those two your favorite?

Alexrd 12-30-2010 03:08 PM

I think I never said here the factions I voted for neither why did I chose them.

Well, I voted for Republic because it seems to be the most well balanced of the four, even though there is nothing that stands out on it. Well, maybe the jetpack.

I also voted for the Empire for the same reasons. And because I never liked the Bothan Spy and Wookiee Warrior. :D

.:Lord Revan:. 12-30-2010 05:09 PM

Like he^ said the Republic is the most balnced of the four. And I like the Tie interceptor.

Bokken 12-30-2010 05:56 PM

Yeah, I don't much like the Rebels' special classes, either. But someone who knows how to use a Wookiee Warrior properly can wreak havoc in close-quarters maps.

Indeed. And that only makes me hate them more online.

When I have to be rebel, I'm usually a sniper (or normal soldier on corridor maps).

.:Lord Revan:. 12-30-2010 06:25 PM

^Same here.

Firewind 01-08-2011 01:44 AM

The Empire is obviously the best in the game!

Explain. Also, pick one from the CW era since the Empire doesn't have a chance to go against CIS or Republic (in a traditional game).

BokkenBlader56 is right. You should have voted for a Clone Wars era faction too.

And explaining your choices would be nice. :)
