thoughts: Phase one of Galactic Assault is very reminiscent of Overwatch. This game seems to have everything I was hoping for. I'm looking forward to it with great interest.

The trailer appears to have a lot more of a classic Battlefront feel. I do like how they kept the air support elements, its the one part of the new Battlefront that I did like.

It appears that they're doing a really good job on listening to what their players want. Classes are a nice edition, excited for all 3 era gameplay, and I like what I saw on the map phases where everything comes together, and of course the previously mentioned Classic BF feel is what makes it all worth it.

EDIT: Just heard an interesting bit in a whiteboy7thst video. Instead of the ships being power ups for people to camp and hog, in Battlefront II they're like BOII point streaks.

Unfortunately it turns out this game has been set up as pay to win. So I really hope the game fails as if it succeeds, it sends out a message that we're happy with a pay to win system in our full price retail games.

Yep, buying a load of those loot boxes early on should give you a big advantage over other players.

At it's current beta stage, this game is without a doubt pay to win and it's sad because the game itself was enjoyable.

I am looking forward to the Solo Campaign more than anything else.
