Factions, Or Whatever You wanna Call Them
 
What factions would you like to be in the game? I would like them to have all of the ones they had before, but also have like Mandalorians against Jedi for the Mandalorian War thing. Also, it would be cool if they could have a mode kind of like the hunt mode or whatever it was called except have like two different natives to a certain area fighting. Like the Tuskens raiding a Jawa Sand Skiff thing. Or have the Tuskens raid a poor and weak little village where moisture farmers and such live.

As far as the Hunt mode goes, I think that they should add a LOT more planets that you can do that on. Like the Empire could be attacking the Felucians or something.

Please help expand upon all of my ideas.:stormmask

GeneralPloKoon 09-24-2008 08:25 PM

I'd like it for certain planets to have a bonus faction, Police on Coruscant, Smugglers on Tatooine, Trandoshans and Wookies on Kashhyyk. And depending on the kind of faction they would be allied with well....their allies, Rebels and Wookies, Smugglers neutral, Trandos and Empire. CIS and Quarren, Republic and Mon Calarami..just some examples.

Darth Eclipse 09-24-2008 08:43 PM

YES!!! That would be awsome! They already did a little bit of that like the Geonosians were with the CIS. It would be cool if they had stuff like that on almost every panet. I also really like the idea of having bonus troops on certain planets, like the Coruscant Gaurds for Empire.

GeneralPloKoon 09-24-2008 11:27 PM

Bonus units only on certian planets would be cool too!

Darth Eclipse 09-25-2008 07:43 AM

That is what I was saying. I guess it was kinda confusing.

Nietzsche's God 01-26-2009 10:25 PM

Whatever the map it may be, there should be neutral factions fighting the two factions that are pitted against each other. Not all map I say, but there should be some in some maps.

shukkoku 02-01-2009 12:54 PM

I think in certain maps, you should be able to play as normal battle droids with rifles like in the phantom menace, apposed to super battle droids. Because for some reason it bugged me that there aren't any normal battle droids, just specialized ones running around

GeneralPloKoon 02-01-2009 04:36 PM

I think Super Battle Droids should be made stronger and moved to a special class. I hates SBD's as infantry but love normal battle driods!

shukkoku 02-01-2009 07:52 PM

yeah, except not like in republic commando, they were probably my least favorite part of the game. killing them takes FOREVER:(

GeneralPloKoon 02-01-2009 10:16 PM

Now thats too powerful! :p

Henz 02-03-2009 05:07 PM

I'm sure there's plenty of new planets with bonus factions that could be lifted from the Clone Wars series. I'd hope they would make the most of their weekly display of new environments.

shukkoku 02-03-2009 06:39 PM

hey i haven't thought of that, except for that the series is quite poor, the environments are pretty nice

Rinku 02-06-2009 06:27 PM

I would like to see mandalorians....

shukkoku 02-07-2009 11:02 PM

wouldn't we all. i think kotOR is the reason that mandoloreans got big, That or the fetts. Isn't there mention of one of jango's family in kotOR?

Admiral_Thrawn 02-08-2009 11:02 AM

Cassius Fett I think you mean. Yes, his armor is mentioned.

joesdomain 03-20-2009 09:46 PM

I prefer to keep it simple. Empire, Rebels, CIS, and Republic and just add natives to each planet to help or attack from wookiees, geonosians, gungans, kaminoians, ugnaughts, etc. Adding something like Jabbas goons on tattonie from barada, nitko, gran, rodian, trandoshan, etc.

LordJhredmo 03-21-2009 07:23 PM

I hope for a new era, some new factions (2 or more, hopefully) and expansion of the old ones.

Not to overdo it, though, but I wouldn't mind that. And hopefully loads more maps and modes.

darthwarman 03-22-2009 08:13 PM

i would like to see the sith and the old republic.
*they should add all kotor planets*
bonus factions:
taris lower city gangs
rakatans
mandalorians
star forge droid army

I think someone's a little obsessed with KotOR...

Indeed. I'd love to see tons of EU material in Star Wars, but until the series has fully used it the movies, I don't want new eras just yet.

Bokken 03-23-2009 06:49 PM

EU content is great for modding, but leave it out of the official game, please.

Why would you want something in a mod but not in a game? It's a lot easier to get if it's already in the game.

Trench 07-31-2009 11:05 PM

The Mando'ade,with Manda'yaim as a map for them.

shukkoku 08-01-2009 03:29 PM

looks like some one likes rep. commando XD, But I do think that mandalorians should have bigger presence in it. Atleast a faction

jawathehutt 08-01-2009 09:08 PM

The problem is, they really only had one heyday that over lets say .1% of potential players would know about. Which is pre-kotor era, which still isnt known all the well since its never been covered directly in a game or movie.

Say what? Mandalorians are the third most used faction in the Star Wars universe. And they are probably more popular than both the Jedi and the Sith.
There are enough "Fandalorians" who might buy a battlefront with Mandos to make even a LucasArts intern rich.

Do you mean the mandalorians?
If so look out for the second season of The Clone Wars.
They show them at the end of the new trailer.

shukkoku 08-02-2009 12:05 AM

mandalorians are butchered by the clone wars show. Most of the content now about the mandos have no context. Kotor and the novels are about all they did right. Having them in BF3 would be exceptional.

jawathehutt 08-02-2009 12:18 AM

I have yet to watch the show, because I find alcohol to be a much more entertaining and fun way of killing my brain cells off. That and ********ty animated star wars shows have never gotten anyone naked for me. And I'm assuming that the target audience is somewhat higher than the 10 year old audience that the animated show seems to be aimed at, or I wont be buying it. Regardless, as just pointed out, most people who are unable to watch any more of jedi master whine whine whine and his irritating voice and existence than the 3 prequel movies will not know about the "new" mandalorians

shukkoku 08-02-2009 01:43 PM

It wouldn't even make sense for them to be in the show, Jnago fett was one of the few remaining mandalorians. Once he died, they all went into hiding to escape the republic

Darth Eclipse 08-19-2009 10:40 AM

I HATE The Clone Wars cartoon. Whoever thought of must have been insane.

The eras of the movies have been overused by now. Not that Battlefront has contributed that much, but the comics, books, TV series have. It's so much Karen Traviss decides to give up on Star Wars because canon is f*cked up. And those eras didn't need much more anyway, the movies were enough, in my opinion.

Jedi: 16.900.000 hits on Google; Sith: 6.720.000 hits on Google; Mandalorian: 195.000 hits on Google.

You can blame George Lucas for that! The murderer if Star Wars! The 2003 cartoon was great though.
