Welcome to the forums, Mr. thifen!


I think I remember it being stated that they're not playable characters but that Jedi are in the game.

If there were playable jedi, people won't play anything else...

Jedi will appear as NPCs. But not just any Jedi, oh no. The special bonuses teams will get for holding planets will involve being able to call in a time-specific jedi (Vader for the Imps in Classic, Obi-Wan for Republic in prequels, although Obi-Wan is just a guess on my part).

This game is trying to focus on the common grunt of the Star Wars universe. That poor defenseless stormtooper, rebel pilot, cursed battle droid, that sort of thing. Giving players the ability to play as jedi would just turn it into JK with vehicles.

I always thought that if a Tribes 2/ Battlefield esque game were ever created that once a player reached a certain amount of kills in a row, without dying that they would be rewarded with jedi or dark jedi status... And after they die go back to normal.

I think something like that would be cool, and give extra incentive to staying alive.

No, you shouldn't be a Jedi.
It should be like Wolf:ET. You get a number of points and then you get bonuses. Besides, I think something like this has already been confirmed.

I REALLY dont want there to be playable jedi in this game. It would just ruin the whole point of the game. It's the soldiers. People would have a fit if Jedi din't appear at all, but the present system I think sound like the best thing. If people could play as Jedi, they'd allw ant to be jedi and they'd all start complaining when they weren't the jedi, and he rest of the people would become obsolete. And with a kill count thing, uber gamers would be the only one who would get to be jedi, and they would undoubtedly abuse their power. If someone can get XX kills without dying, they don't need to be a Jedi, and if they are made one, they would be unstopable.

Do the right thing! Just say no to Jedi!

How would that make other characters obsolete??

Heck, they could even have jedi part of the host's option. Some could have servers with no jedi support, others with very lax jedi rules, others with in between. The jedi would certainly revert back to regular status once killed.

The idea that that would alienate anyone but uber games is absurd... Why don't they just add auto-aim, since some people might not have the same aiming skills as others?

More skilled players will always have an advantage... over those less skilled, but that doesn't mean that the less skilled player will always have less kills than the others, or always be losing.

A system that (very) temporarily rewards the player for either lasting so long without dying, capturing the flag, or any other feat would encourage the players to strive for that... But at the same time they STILL have to use the regular soldiers, so it does not make them obsolete at all.

My suggestion won't happen most likely, but there are many ways jedi can be implemented to the player without the game losing the fun factor.

(although the game may well be more fun the way it is... we shall see)

I think it's good to have a Star Wars game for once that don't have playable jedi. Let the grunts take on the grunts, with only a rare jedi appearence.

I think the idea of playable jedis is a bad idea. Like adding air in glactic battlegrounds(it made the game maddening!!!).

Light sabers and Force powers are cool and all, but between Jedi Outcast, Jedi Academy, and Knights of the Old Republic, there have been more than enough Jedi games lately. Battlefront sounds like a refreshing change of pace.

It's not fair to award players who killed a lot of others. Some classes just aren't very good at killing. Besidesit isn't encouraging to play as a team if you have such a bonus in the game because nobody would want the jobs where killing isn't your main job.
