But on that day, on that planet, our blood ran hot with dreams of victory, melting the ice that stood in our way.

While we all enjoy our game that grant us this wiki, we must be grateful for the guys who made it possible! Introducing Project:Contributors, where users like you and I will help make a tribute to those who made it possible. Visit Category:Contributors and select one person who you want to make a profile of and contribute to that page until it reaches the standard length of a good page.
During Galactic Conquest or Conquest, choose the Republic or Rebel Alliance, then buy the "leader" bonus and play on Dagobah: Swamp (in Battlefront II), then take Yoda at every chance you get. Once you've done that, go to the swamp area, where units are really hard to hit from the cover that the water gives them. Because Yoda is so short, he can't be hit by energy bolts when in the water, so you can just hack 'n' slash without care. One thing: the water doesn't protect against grenades, so if you hear that "tink tink" noise, get out!
A Clone Like No Other
Deep within the Kamino facility upon invasion by the Imperial forces, a squad of stormtroopers discovered a tank of Bacta . Inside was a fully suited up clone trooper. The clone's armor was worn, and showed scars that bring a flash of memory to veteran stormtroopers of the Battle of Hypori. The glint of the charred blue seeps in the realization that this trooper is a part of the Hypori's ARC squad. Removing the limp body from the healing liquid, the helmet was removed. The face show faint resemblance to Fett but other than that nothing else. His ID gave a weak signal that read: "ANK-SKYOBR202." His eyes shot open as he reaches for his rotary cannon at the same time, snatching his helmet and slam it back on. "Anakin Skyobiliviator, reporting for duty."
"Your swords, please. We don't want to make a mess of things in front of the Chancellor."

Re: Glad To Have HelpEdit
Best news I've herd for a wile. I haven't been on for months now, I've had a lot of stuff to finish off but I have more time now to get back.. 09:18, June 14, 2013 (UTC)
Keep all references as BFIII for now until we know for certain what it will be. Though Calling it a reboot is a bit strange considering the campaign modes on any of the previous games don't follow on from each other.. 09:44, June 15, 2013 (UTC)
- As for the other wikia just watch for now I'll look through it and we'll perhaps see if we can help each other maybe.
No I haven't heard the news at all buddy please tell me18:30,6/17/2013 18:30, June 17, 2013 (UTC)
The new theme is great I complemented Evanf on the logo on chat, and the image for the promotion is a good one, the text is also good.. 18:55, June 17, 2013 (UTC)

Can you get a good shot of the snowspeeder? If so then yes. The article is probably not needed but the whole strategies and glitches pages need to be overhauled.. 11:54, June 19, 2013 (UTC)
Ya'll I'll fix it.
Wookiee Rocketeer BFII Edit
The image below the text is a Wookiee NPC with a Rocket Launcher, the Player ones don't have the shoulder pads.. 11:59, June 20, 2013 (UTC)
The new chat looks really great. I like the Fighter Escort idea on the new BFIII bit, and the idea of BCS. I also finished up DL-44 Blaster Pistol with some proper formatting. . 10:10, June 26, 2013 (UTC)
Thanks. Alter what captions?. 18:24, June 26, 2013 (UTC)
Hello, I apologize for such a late reply to your message, but I wasn't on my computer when I edited as an anon because I was just too lazy to log in. By the way, I was the anon that only edited on the Battlefront series page and added the new Battlefront confirmation information. Any anon edits after that wasn't me.
It's been a while since we talked, I hope you're doing great!
when I orderd battlefront 2 for pc I was having fun playing online space is my favorite for playing online than I help with some users than a day ago we went to utapu map than all users started doing bugs that make me do that than the next day I started playing online again I saw a user called (cody) I think he is an admin so I saw him shooting at our team so I was afraid to shoot him than they make me to do that for him shooting I us because I was on empire team and he was too than things got normal okey than today I started playing again for space than I was helping our team to win than minutes my games crashes than I rejoin than now I got booted for no reason (booted for team killing I mean what is this and I wasn't doing team killing I need help so I can un boot me.
Message from RepublicSalvageEdit
I was just messing around with the ranks. Also was I demoted for messing around with the ranks because I was raned Lieutenant, sorry again. RepublicSavage (talk) (blog) 00:09, September 24, 2013 (UTC)
Re: Howdy! Edit
That's fine :) It's great to hear from you again! I also have homework, extracurricular activites, and such, but I usually get on Wikia whenever I have the chance. Thanks as well!
Well Thanks For Not Banning Me!Edit
Haha, you could have told me if it was bothering you. I wouldn't have had a problem changing it :) Anyways, thanks a lot, Anakin!
Alrigt, Anakin, btw, It's me Kryyton, I helped you out on Republic Commando's Wiki. And alrighty, I'll know that for next time, and thanks for the welcome! Septin (talk) 19:59, September 24, 2013 (UTC)
Return of Freeman23Edit
Ya repeating the step to do that is going to be hard. it happened 7 years ago at a friends house and he claims that he never knew that you could even download mods at the time. your probally right it was just a bug. but i guess i'll never really know. 22.214.171.124 20:10, September 25, 2013 (UTC)freeman23
ps if you can leave me the steps to link how to sign better to my user page it would be greatly appreciated.
My signature is just colored based on whatever the wiki's color scheme is. It just so happens that the link colors here blend in with the brackets that are around them.
But before I did that I actually looked for spelling mistakes and grammer mistakes, but than when I looked back, it was changes to it's original "look", if you will, that's when I started doing that, but then I thought that was just a template forwhat to put if you saw an error on a wiki. Sorry, a'm I going to be banned, again sorry I wasn't trying to be a nuisance. RepublicSavage (talk) (blog) 00:07, September 26, 2013 (UTC)
I think it will work, as there aren't as many characters in that sig than mine (I use <nowiki> coding to prevent the extra brackets around the links from messing up the coding) and I don't see anything wrong. Just make sure he clicks the "I want to use Wikitext in my signature" option below the Custom Signature box in the Preferences :)
-- EB (signature isn't working when I use the 4 tildes for some reason) 14:22, September 29, 2013
Modification factor Edit
I think any customisation will be relatively minor, the game engine will likely be optimized for the environments and game modes, any customisations would likely be armour colours or different helmets. As for anything else I'll have to wait and see, but I don't see it been too much of an issue. --. 20:49, September 29, 2013 (UTC)
Sorry, I meant my own signature, as just realized that I forgot to close the <nowiki> code block when I wrote the message (which overrides all wiki coding and displays whatever text is typed, in case you didn't know).
By the way... Edit
Do you by any chance know how to change the search bar text and buttons on a wiki like on here? Just wondering...
(This message is just so you know I read your reply) Just let me know whenever you're ready :)
Like my new sig? Edit
|||| 02:46, October 21, 2013 (UTC)
It's simple and I'm satisfied with it. I may have to adjust the color though. But anyways, what do you think of it?
- Fixed ^_^

Re: A favor? Edit
Sure, no problem! I'll try to greet new users whenever I can :) And happy post-independence day to you as well :D

I wasn't paying much attention I think the block is set at 1 year by default, I'll knock it down to a month or so later.. 09:36, November 20, 2013 (UTC)
Re: Howdy yet againEdit
Hey Anakin man its been a long time. Good to talk to you again. With the new Battlefront coming out sometime in the future, I plan on being much more active. Its good to be back :D Skitnies(Talk) 04:56, December 3, 2013 (UTC)
Thank You Edit
And a merry Christmas to you as well Anakin.. 11:17, December 25, 2013 (UTC)
Re: Merry Christmas! Edit
Merry Christmas and a happy New Year to you as well :D
- I guess, yeah lol... I've had this one for a while, but hopefully I'll manage to keep it for as long as possible. Anyways, if you're referring to the clone as your avatar (I'm not sure if you changed it or not), I believe that the show is called "Star Wars: Clone Wars" or something along those lines (I don't actually remember the name). Are they really remaking it? -- EternalBlaze (Talk) 03:19, December 27, 2013 (UTC)
I promise to come see you guys16:36, December 26, 2013 (UTC)
- I still can't say that I know it. I'm absolutely clueless when it comes to things like that, haha. -- EternalBlaze (Talk) 00:59, December 28, 2013 (UTC)
- Unless if you want to just tell me, I'm all out of ideas! xD -- EternalBlaze (Talk) 01:04, December 28, 2013 (UTC)
My name is Elliot and I run the youtube channel "BattlefrontUpdates", I'm trying to get a hold of an admin from this wikia but I can't seem to find any better contact option then this, so if this message is getting through I would love to get a reply! I would just like to talk a little bit about possible cross promotion, about how I can contribute and so on. So if you see this feel free to send me a response to any of the following:
For now I think so yes. I also know how you meant it. Have you contacted the BF Updates guy on your talk page?. 09:39, December 29, 2013 (UTC)
it's 11.00 AM over here. Okay keep me updated with him please.. 10:49, December 29, 2013 (UTC)
thank you for the response, I'm sorry about leaving so much contact info, I'm a bit confused about how this whole communication system works, so feel free to delete my old post (if you havent already), and is there anywhere outside this wikia i could talk to you? It would be a lot easier if we could have a chat or something similar, you have my contact info so feel free to use it haha
No way! Edit
Wow, that's awesome! I can't believe I didn't catch that, but oh well, haha. I never watched the TV show, but I did see the live-action movie (from 2010) once or twice. I guess I didn't recall because I haven't seen the movie many times or the show at all but anyways, that's amazing :D -- EternalBlaze (Talk) 03:21, December 30, 2013 (UTC)
I started off just re formatting Theed, then all these other pages jumped out at me :). 10:15, December 31, 2013 (UTC)
I hope not that could be very time consuming :)
. 10:45, January 1, 2014 (UTC)
And a happy new year to you.. 10:17, January 2, 2014 (UTC)
okay thank you for the info, I can't manage to find my old post so that i can add the bulletins like you did on my page, so ill post this new one again.
I live in Sweden so I have the timezone gmt+1.
One of the ideas I had was simply to cross promote my channel with this wiki, I know that other wikis do similar with the respective leading youtube channels in those games. One example is destiny where some of the destiny youtube channels gets featured on the wiki and in return they link to the wiki in their videos. I would gladly be up for this in the future if you are planning to update this wiki for the upcoming game aswell.
I will try to be on this page to read replies as much as I can, even though it's kind of complicated haha, but if you do have any kind of social media where it's possible to either chat or pm eachother that would be terrific, anything from twitter to steam would do, that would make communicating a lot easier :)
I've just read the proposal here. I sounds a really good idea.. 10:05, January 4, 2014 (UTC)
New feature Edit
Great isn't it.... Edit
For the maps I un linked the RS from the renegade squadron maps for that very reason. It's a bit unfortunate really.
Ah yes Battle Cry, I've been following it on FB for a few months now there are some really good videos of it. Even when BFIII comes out, I'll still have a play on it.. 09:41, January 5, 2014 (UTC)
missed your message Edit
Hey again, I missed your last message as it was written to a response to kingoffall post ^^ I've been having some email contact with him now which is a lot easier, so if you have any email adress i could contact you with that would help the conversation. I also added a link on my websites main page to the wikia http://www.battlefrontupdates.com/
About the news, basicly since I run a battlefront channel which is 100% dedicated to the upcoming game, including mostly news, I just thought that if you guys need any help with a news section I could help out. There hasn't been a lot of actual news yet, but this is a little list I made combining the things we know so far: http://www.battlefrontupdates.com/?page_id=115
Hey, just wanted to let you know I sent you an email, you said you didn't check it very often so I thought I might aswell leave a message here!
HI! Yeah I'm busy with my dissertation ATM, I have had almost no spare time over the past few months. I do keep checking here for vandalism or new editors however. Anything going on with you?. 09:04, April 20, 2014 (UTC)
Vandal Notice. Edit
The trailer is fantastic. The quality of the graphics looks incredible. Unfortunately we have to wait until 2015 for it. 09:42, June 10, 2014 (UTC)
- They say it's gunna be the best star wars game ever and I can belive it! This crap is finally gettin' REAL! Thecrazyweirdo (talk) 17:43, June 10, 2014 (UTC)
- I agree with you both! (Lets hope next year isn't like this again, a staff interview.....oh gosh, I would be frustrated!) 20:58, June 10, 2014 (UTC)
Yes great choice.. 09:22, June 11, 2014 (UTC)
- I said only in mods. If you don't know what mods are, they are user-generated content patches for the game (i.e additional levels, new maps, altered sides, etc), Lucasarts/Pandemic does not create these, they only supplied the tools to create them. You can learn more about battlefront modding HERE, or HERE for BF1. Also, please sign your posts. --Thecrazyweirdo (AKA CommanderAwesome) Talk Contribs 19:40, June 30, 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, I heard, everything except the films and TV shows is not 'Legacy Canon'. To be honest I think it's for the best, it would have been almost impossible to make the new films without contradicting some post ROTJ canon from 30 years of EU, that would have got some people pointlessly upset. And no matter how god other games or books are, it's the films that are Star Wars for me. 126.96.36.199 09:03, July 3, 2014 (UTC)
Oops I wasn't logged in. Rebels will apparently rewrite a lot of history of The Force Unleashes in particular. And yes, I forgot to mention, all post episode VII stuff will be canon as well.. 18:52, July 3, 2014 (UTC)
- Yeah, which sucks 'cuz I love the TFU games. I wish they had at least finished the story. The second one left way too many plot holes. RIP Expanded Universe. Thecrazyweirdo (AKA CommanderAwesome) Talk Contribs 19:33, July 3, 2014 (UTC)
Thank you... And another question what happen to STWB2 online because when I go to multiplayer there are no more servers to join does that means they shut down STWB2 online.Obi wan masterexxx10 (talk) 15:49, August 10, 2014 (UTC)
- Gamespy is shut down. See this thread and this thread for more details and for possible solutions. (I am Commander Awesome on those forums) Thecrazyweirdo (AKA CommanderAwesome) Talk Contribs 17:38, August 10, 2014 (UTC)
- However, there is a very good solution, as seen from our "partner" here. (I will send this message to you personally, as I know you probably won't see this message, Obi.) 20:28, August 10, 2014 (UTC)
The Gameranger works but heres a weird thing when I join a server that has 5/64 players it mean that is already full but how come its 5/64 and its giving me an error LOLObi wan masterexxx10 (talk) 18:54, August 11, 2014 (UTC)
Autoplaying music on main page Edit
I stumbled across the wiki while doing some research on Battlefront II, and noticed that you have some autoplaying music on the main page. This usually isn't a problem, as every site I've seen with autoplaying music allows you to stop it in some sort of way - however, the
iframe element on the main page for the music is hidden and there's no way at all to pause it. Would you consider changing the player so that it's at least visible so it can be paused? I'm sure I'm not the only person who would appreciate this. :) sactage (talk) 23:49, September 1, 2014 (UTC)
- Yeah, I'd like to turn it off if I'm listening to other music. Thecrazyweirdo (AKA CommanderAwesome) Talk Contribs 01:28, September 2, 2014 (UTC)
- Nobody ever reports this so I didn't know, sorry. But in any case, I know a youtube player, but don't know how to make it play off a playlist, perhaps I will tweak with the code at the moment until somebody or I find a proper template. 23:49, September 2, 2014 (UTC)
Yes I do. 08:55, October 8, 2014 (UTC)
I've been doing great, just graduated in Sept, I've started a Masters course now for a year. How about you?. 08:42, October 9, 2014 (UTC)
I hope so, I've still got a lot of pages to tidy up first.. 09:02, October 10, 2014 (UTC)
A mod wikia, hmm, I sounds like a good idea, it would require a lot of work though, especialy for the two of us.. 17:43, October 11, 2014 (UTC)
"CIS" vs. "Separatist Alliance" Edit
I noticed a lot of articles refer to the CIS as the Separatist Alliance, and you mentioned we should stick to the games' own termonology. Should we change it to CIS? --Commander Awesome (AKA TheCrazyWeirdo) (Talk - Contribs) 04:22, December 16, 2014 (UTC)
...And a happy new year Edit
Same to you, I hope the new year might be a bit more productive from me here.. 10:42, December 25, 2014 (UTC)
Happy holidays Edit
Sup and happy holidays my friend it has been a long time I've joined the Navy and been kicked out due to my shoulder and I'm getting back into the swing of things.15:58, January 7, 2015 (UTC)
Hey, I just wanted to let you know that I own both of the PSP Battlefronts so if you need help with one of them, just let me know, okay? :)
My shoulder is all jacked up it has no cartilege on it, as well as it easily dislocates which is excruciating. I have to get surgery done on it if I wanna re enlist.13:50, January 21, 2015 (UTC)
Thanks man! I plan on Re-enlisting.14:19, January 25, 2015 (UTC)
Remember that "What We Want from BFIII." post you did? Ummm... Well, I was trying to add my own ideas, but I accidently added a category on that page. Can you erase, or tell someone to erase it, please? I don't want to get in trouble cause of the trouble I did accidently.
P.S.: I chose you out of random, don't take this personally.
Why did they have to make the Beam Rifle horrible by limited range while zoomed in (at least that's what I think happens when you try to shoot with it zoomed in)?? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Wes Nelson (talk • contribs)

RE: About DICE Battlefront.... Edit
I think the best thing to do is just to try boos the profile of this wiki nearer the time, I'll try create some relevant articles by then. If someone else does crest one, we could always just message them to point this one out to them.. 18:38, February 22, 2015 (UTC)
As soon as the game's system requirements are revealed I'll check I can run it and buy it as soon as it's available.. 10:43, February 23, 2015 (UTC)
DICE WIKI Edit
I think it be good, actually to partner with them.21:43, February 23, 2015 (UTC)
I was asked to stop by another staff member but was not given any warning and unfortunately had my headset turned up enough that I jumped about 6 inches out of my chair! He said he did the same exact thing. While I love Star Wars and everything related to it, that music right at the main page is totally unexpected, immediately loud and should probably be removed. I saw that it was there via verbatim so removing it would be easy enough. If you want to have it there as a clickable link and you are still not sure how to do it (I saw the post from last September on your wall) then I suggest looking through our help files. This one in particular may help. Help:Audio files Call of Duty wikia uses embeded youtube audio files for there weapons. Here is a link to their YouTube Player template. Please consider removing it completely, but at the very least making it's use optional for your users.
With more news about Battlefront 3 expected at the Star Wars Celebration next month, I have been asked to come by an help update this wikia to reflect the new game. That generally means visuals and content. I am always open to suggestions or questions and everything I edit is certainly reversible but my goal is always to benefit the community and draw in more users. I will be around quite a bit over the next couple of weeks starting tomorrow. I came by here on the 19th and easily jumped about 6 inches out of my chair when I got hit with the music on the mainpage. While using audio is all well and good, and certainly allowed, I suggested that the verbatim used to plant it there be removed so that the music does not automatically play, scaring the dignity out of every user that stops by. I have not seen a reply as of yet but I also see you have not been on your wikia since then either. If I do not get a reply soon, I will probably remove the link so that I can comfortably work on the wikia without cringing each time I have to return to the main page. We can discuss options for embedding it when you return. I have left messages on the talk pages of the other two active Admins so that you will all be aware of my presence over the next couple of weeks (or more, depending). Thanks! Pinkachu (talk) 00:05, March 25, 2015 (UTC)
- Another Admin got back to me, so I have started spiffing the mainpage up, removed the music link, locations sections (which was not mobile friendly anyway), added an rss feed and will fix your headers. We should have more assets for you after the Star Wars Celebration on April 16-19.
I have created a simple one for you. I placed the template on the main page above the slider so you can see it at work. I left instructions on the template page on how to alter it to GMT only, but having it use the users system clock is the most common use which is how I set it. I am also going to add an image to your slider re: Battlefront 3 and pointing it to the Battlefront 3 page that I will be updating soon. Pinkachu (talk) 16:53, April 1, 2015 (UTC)
- I edited the template per your question. When it ends, it should change the text to announce that the trailer is here. I also saw your blog and made my suggestion there, but to reiterate, I suggest you call the page what ever EA and DICE call the game. If it is in fact Star Wars:Battlefront, reusing the original name, then name the page from the ORIGINAL game page to something different. Star Wars:Battlefront (legacy) or (Pandemic Studios) or (2004). I am going through your categories because you have quite a few of them with one page attached. This is commonly caused by users creating duplicate or redundant categories and it becomes hard to control. For example, Ammo and Ammunition. Same thing, don't need two categories. I am hoping to help get these straightened out a bit but I do have a concern. We have a Wikia Game Guides app (Google play for Android and the App Store for iOS) in which your wikia can be located and browsed through. Since all weapons are together, all equipment is together, instead of separated by game, I am curious as to how you want to handle categories for the new game. I filled out your Special:CuratedContent which is what our app uses and is editable by Admins (go look and get familiar with it). I had to put all the categories together under one big roof which makes it hard to users to find game specific items. Personally, I think if a specific weapon is only in Battlefront II, I would put it in Star Wars:Battlefront II Weapons. Being able to use a Tag for the game name and listing categories related to that Tag in the Curated Content is always ideal but impossible to do if everything is under the same big blanket. Anyway, roll around how you would like to handle categories for the new game consider revamping the old ones. Let me know if I can help. I didn't play them but I can research as well as anyone.
It wasnt my suggestion to write new articles for the same weapon, or whatever. My suggestion was to add the appropriate categories. Lets say the new game uses the DC-15 Blaster Rifle, then I would add a category Star Wars:Battlefield 3 Weapon (or whatever the game ends up being named) category to the existing page. Just a suggestion only. Right now I am only looking to rid you of ambiguous categories.
As for the CuratedContent. If you look at the page, it is somewhat self explanitory. The Item Section tag is optional and can be named anything. I generally put the name of the game in that, for wikias that cover several games as yours does, then the categories that belong to that game underneath. ie:
- Star Wars:Battlefront II
- whatever else
- Star Wars: Battlefront Elite Squadron
- whatever else.
In your case, everything is under the same blanket so I did not use any Item Section tags. No big deal, just harder to find items in specific games. My suggestion is to take whatever smart phone you are using, go download our free app and search for your wikia in it. Then browse it and you can see first hand how it works. Works on tablets as well.
Star Wars Battlefront..Edit
Hello, I am excited about the new game upcoming which is being developed by DICE. I dont know who else to ask, so I decided to ask you. What do you think will be in the game?
Battlefront DICE (Part Two)Edit
Ok Skyobliviator. Only seven days till its released!
The only maps I know have been added currently are:
The only factions that are confirmed so far are:
- Galactic Empire
- Rebel Alliance
That probably means no more Clone Apart :(
- The game doesn't release until holiday 2015. The trailer releases in seven days. A Clone Apart is not an official show, and it's most likely going to stay filmed in battlefront II, as most of the filming was already done in advance. --Commander Awesome (AKA TheCrazyWeirdo) (Talk - Contribs) 16:46, April 10, 2015 (UTC)

Battlefield Wiki Affiliation Edit
From one BF Wiki Admin to another (see what I did there?) I would like to propose an affiliation between the Battlefield and Battlefront Wikis in reguard to the upcoming Battlefront installment. What do you think? -- awyman13 20:33, April 19, 2015 (UTC)
- Great Thanks awyman13 16:48, April 19, 2015 (CTC)
- Awesome, Ill get right on it. awyman13 15:39 April 24, 2015 (CTC)
It could help our profile, also I think we'll get a lot of cross over players between the two games.. 09:16, April 20, 2015 (UTC)
Yes, I changed the main page color to black with a small amount of transparency after I changed the bacground to match the new game. Feel free to change it to whatever you want! I was going for bright, bold and fresh. Pinkachu (talk) 16:11, April 20, 2015 (UTC)
