Stupid questions

1) As stormtroopers how do you get to fly--- not in ships as infantry

2) How do you roll as infantry?

1) Any class can use any vehicle.
2) Rolling is sideways + jump.

Thanks, but by 'fly' I meant troops not in ships. I've seen stormtroopers jump very long distances/heigths....

A common stormtrooper cannot fly. Only the imperial's darktrooper can perform some sort of superjump, boosted by his jetpack. You can execute this jump by double tapping the jump button.

The jettrooper of the clones is the only class that can really fly as such. Double tapping the jump key will ignite his jetpack and allow him to fly anywhere for a short time.

I hate to correct you there, but some characters can't use some vehicles. It seems that the opposing team in a mission can't use the strongest vehicle of the enemy (for example: Rebels can't use AT-AT's on Hoth, Droids can't use Republic AT-TE's on Geonosis, etc).

At least this is true in the pc version's MP.

Enemies cannot pilot AT-AT's and AT-TE's because they're Mobile Command Posts.

The only unit that cannot pilot vehicles is the Droideka. This is because the Droideka is really a vehicle itself.

No it's not crap, I own everyone with it. As usual the people without skill call CIS crap when in fact they're some of the best.

Oh yes, the Droideka is a very good class, but you have to know when to leave, or get killed

Sometimes, not a lot to mess up the gameplay.

The droidika is definatly one of the strongest player classes in the game, even thought it has many weeknesses such as:
1. very easy to be killed when rolling.
2. very slow when walking.
3. cannot side-step to avoid the obvious.
4. slow to turn.
5. cannot use vehicles because it is one.

but other than that if u know how to use it it can be a very effective assault tool.

I haven't used the Droideka enough yet in multiplayer, but the couple times I did I noticed that it lagged "less" when rolling if I steered with my strafe keys rather than the mouse.

I agree with you that Kamino is a slaughter... Jet Troopers seem to have a huge advantage on this map. Only time it went through a rotation online the match was over in a couple minutes.

If you take the cloning facility the droids can win (I've only seen it happen 2 or 3 times though)
