It has a lot of flaws.
-there's not really any good maps. I've played on all of them multiple times. I like one of them.
-The game modes are all weak.
-Your character is slow, not necessarily bad but on a lot of the maps you could go out run for 20 seconds and get killed and have to do it all over again which leads too...
-The servers aren't balanced by player level or skill. I'm probably below average at the game besides the snipers warzone thing. I'm good at that one. I'm in the 40s or so level wise, and constantly playing against people in the 100s now. So not only do they have a better feel for the game/are plainly better at it. They also have better weaponry.
-The objective based warzones either rotate the objective in a game IE you go from protecting a generator to playing TDM to playing a capture the flag type mode all in the same lobby.
-And nobody really plays the objective. I love objective based games. That's my shit. But I have yet to be on a team with randoms that actually play the objective. They want to play TDM, I realize it's a common complaint anyway amongst games but I think I've only won 2 games that aren't TDM based in 5-6 hours played. *
-Matchmaking takes a long ass time until you get into a lobby. At which point it's faster loading the new maps/game types but you could be playing 5-2 until you get three new teammates. So you get slaughtered for a while. After you get that first game though and then you back out it reduces the load time a lot. I have no idea why it's that way though.
-Campaign is somewhat interesting but the controls for the owl (the droid that follows you around) are a bit wonky. Sometimes he hacks what I want him to instantly...sometimes I spend five minutes trying to get it to do what I want.
-Campaign has horrible pacing.
* I think and hope since 12 player TDM has been added this has changed but I doubt it.
