TheSWBFC, tweeted out to Dennis Brännvall (Design Director for Battlefront II) regarding the addition of Private Matches to the game. Obviously this isn't as clear cut of a response as we'd like, we would have preferred a direct "yes" or "no", but this response feels like they are listening and could be a sign of good things to come.
We will continue to reach out to developers to obtain a concrete response. Until then it's basically a waiting game, so I encourage all of you to tweet/post/do anything to get their attention regarding the addition of Private Matches. They are paying attention. Now that Dennis is allowed to communicate it's only a matter of time until we get more information. I, for one, cannot wait until this addition so we can get some tournaments going again. Fingers crossed.
