Please Make Yoda More Mobile!

Why is Yoda's jump height closer to Bossk's than any other force user's? Why is the most agile jedi of all time the slowest runner in the game? Why is Yoda's swing speed the slowest of any saber user? It doesn't make sense! Rey and Luke can jump atop a skyscraper, why can't Yoda? I personally believe that Yoda should have the biggest jump height, but i'd be fine if it was equal to Rey's! But nooooooooo, Yoda can only jump as high as a glorified Bossk, and is slower than Vader! My proposal is this:

Buff Yoda's jump height to equal with Palpatine

Buff Yoda's running speed to equal with Rey

Buff Yoda's swing speed by letting him swing twice for every little jump he does in his striking animation

Return Yoda's dodge to what it was before Patch 1.2

Remove saber stun locks

  • In my opinion, you can't buff Yoda without buffing his competition and I can't imagine buffing any hero without nerfing them in different field

    Only 877 years old is this Yoda, hmm?

    Vader is 7 million times stronger than Yoda in HvV.

    Oh, and the dark side is a 7 BILLION times stronger than the light.

  • @MyLittleGreenFriend How did you measure it? I'd agree to those buffs, but then his presence abillity would need to be replaced, which is fine by me but I doubt it's gonna happen

    I don't think presence needs to be replaced. Vader's Rage ability is better.

    Presence:

    200 health

    Focused Rage:

    200 health

    Damage reduction

    Extra saber damage

  • @MyLittleGreenFriend How did you measure it?

    Choke is better than Dash. (At least in HvV)

    Focused Rage is better than presence. (At least in HvV)

    Saber throw is better than Unleash. (At least in HvV)

    Everything Yoda does, Vader does it better.

    Star card presence gives you 260 health and it decays slowly while the next one's recharging and it also releases you from stuns. Rage doesn't
  • I don't want any abilities replaced, but I did wonder why Yoda can't jump as high as the other Jedi (and Sith).

  • I would say these buffs would be cool for HvV, but would turn Yoda into even harder tank to kill. He is already one of the best due to presence, giving him jump height and run speed would make him nearly impossible to really get a read on. Also, do you mean his previous dodge, where he moved one inch?

    First of all, when you're released from stuns you drop to the ground and are defenseless for several seconds, so except for Kylo's freeze it's basically like being stunned. 60 extra health really doesn't make much of a difference in HvV, especially since the card has to be epic for it to give you that much. Fair point about the decaying. I still think focused rage is superior though.

    If we would follow the movies Yoda would just overpower everyone except for Palpatine
  • realistically, yeah, but like, he's already very hard to kill, especially in GA. His dashes paired with his dash gives you an almost endless dodge cycle. In heroes vs villains he can do what no other saber can and straight ignore blocks which is pretty sick. Just avoid getting locked in one of maul or kylos saber attacks, get out of their forward lunge distance and you should be good. He's more defensive anyway, he overheals the entire team by crazy amounts.

    He’s about to get HoK, and he already dominates GA as is. He’s good to go.

    No, his dodge before Patch 1.2 where he could actually dodge lightsaber attacks. Yoda is not a tank in HvV. He is terrible in that gamemode. I understand from what i've seen of you on the forums that you play GA much more than HvV, but for people like me and @TonyGoombah1 who love Yoda and play HvV, it is extremely annoying to face Vader for example, try to dodge away but get stunlocked and pulled back to the very place you started your dodge, become unable to move, and die. Or to jump as high as Yoda possibly can only to be killed by some noob Vader spamming below you.

    Do you think it's ok that Yoda can barely jump as high as Bossk?

    Oh he absolutely is not. He's slipperier than a fish soaked in olive oil if you know how to play him. All you need is practice.
  • Lots of peeps have said this from day 1 about his jumping and still no change.
    I would rather see

    Presence - no animation that makes you stand still. Funny the move to give you health makes you valuable to damage

    Force push in the air

    When using light saber he moves forward more. - vader moves lots and is hard to escape, this would make yoda harder to get away from.

    Other than that he is a good character.

    Vader is a joke and can hold off 3 light saber heros at once. When he is target you really need blaster heroes.

    Here's what I mean.

    This is a video of me trying to hold off 4 villains, 3 of them being sabers, and even a boba, and I still, in a 1v4 situation (well for most of it at least) manage to slip out of their way.

    Needless to say I got many hate messages :)

    Very impressive playing! I have to admit, that was nice! However, not very impressed with the other team. When Vader choked you at 1:47, one accurate rocket from Boba would have finished you off, but he missed all of them despite the fact you were suspended in midair. Also you did end up dying, so not sure about the "slip out of their way part". Still very impressed though!

    Yeah, given that the other team isnt fully competent/can communicate, yoda should be fine haha. Still though, i want something more from him. He's pretty underwhelming in actual regular combat
  • He needs a oposing "the dark side" buff, that would make him very good in HvV.
