Speeders on Starkiller Base May be the Worst...

But seeing a speeder spammer get a hero only to be run over by another speeder spammer? COMEDY GOLD.

    I agree but the speeder bikes & that map with the invisible trip-ups on Endor are worse..
    Let's all remember that Luke's hand didn't clank to the stone when he vanished....Everything organic disappears as a force ghost. The in-organic stays...

    I thought they don't 1 shot people anymore?

  • Having a speeder gently nudge into you for a OHK on that map is infuriating. It should just knock you back and do a meagre amount of damage, say 25. I don't see the point of them even being on SKB. That first battle is a lot of fun as infantry without them.

    They are quite easy to destroy but I think they could do with one less per team. They are not exactly OP but their frequency is an annoyance. Bit like a wasp. They flap in front of you with intended menace but hardly ever sting you.

    It doesn't matter that they are "easy to destroy"

    Just equip a single Stock Defender and you'll be able to play as a Speeder just from the points you received from being shot!

    I should know

    I kinda do it all the time in GA

    hehehe :/

    Do you get points in the speeder too from defender or did they fix that?

  • I love SKB for the speeders, but I don’t use them. I just kill dozens of them with NT-242 disruptor shot to easily outscore them. Although they are a major pain for non-specialists I wholeheartedly agree

    Disruptor still needs to disable vehicles for a short time like the 1st game had. There's too many downsides for the slight vehicle damage to be entirely worth it.

    He took a lot of blaster damage before the speeder took him out :-)

    In that round I am talking about I was run over no less than six times.

    Yeah, the speeders on SKB are awful. I dread that map in GA, and that's the sole reason.

    Though really, all the speeders in this game are a little ridiculous. They need to blow up when they hit and kill someone, or at least take half damage.

    Not to mention it'd give us an actually counter to starfighters without being in one and wasting time.

    I love the map but I appreciate why others don't. The trouble is at the moment besides the usual speeders, starfighter strafing and line of camped snipers you have the army of DC15 Spammers. It does make it a little more difficult to press an attack for sure if your team isn't aggressive.

    An ion disruptor like the last game was leaked. Don’t think disruptor shot is necessary to have it disable vehicles since it already has the explosive damage niche.
  • People who say Speeders upset them make me wonder how they could play so terribly they can’t earn 200 battle points & get some payback action in.

    The liuv's are ok, but should probably be bumped up to 400 BP. It's still cheap to buy, but it makes it a little harder to just spam. My problem is with the speeder bikes on Endor. Those should at least take some damage, considering how light and small they are.

    There should definitely be some kind of formula which takes into account the impact speed of the speeder to work out the damage. I'm okay with being OHK'd by a large(ish) object going at like, 60mph. I'm not okay with literally poking a stationary object and dying.
