Nerf overpowered-bacca

At this point I hate him more than any hero and villain in this game...

  • Have you seen the stupid amount of CC his opposition has? Instead of (I'm assuming) thinking with your Lightsaber, think smart. One freeze from Kylo is all it takes for a blaster teammate to put him down.

    Like it or not, he's the only real hope heroes have against villains until a serious balancing fix.

    ..Which will never happen, because all changes are made with GA in mind.

    And nobody uses Chewie in GA and lives for very long, or remains a threat for very long. So eh.

    The fact is that if you're running it's because you suck, and the game shouldn't pander to players who suck.

    I mean HvV
  • Freeze with Kylo + watch him die from (hopefully) a player smart enough to use a Blaster Hero.

    OP, this guy has some wisdom. Right now, Chewbacca is a necessary evil, but that doesn't mean we can't talk about him later. Right now though, they need to figure out what they can do to all of the most powerful heroes to make each one balanced. Because if you are going to touch Chewbacca, you are going to need to touch his equal (Which is Vader).

  • Out of curiosity, why do you feel this way about Chewbacca, @Clusterwatch?

  • Easy to melt him. Learn to counter him instead of calling for nerfs. Enough of the nerfs...

  • Sound like a newbie crying to his mommy again. There’s counter for every hero’s and if you don’t know that then you are truly a newbie.

    Yeah, that tends to happen still. Luke sometimes has the same problem where the push doesn't go off.

    You need to approach a Chewie carefully in HvV though. The odds of you winning that fight with Maul 1 v 1 are not in your favour. Make deductions, plan around, rather than think with your lightsaber :)

    ((Maul is a terrible choice for HvV anyway imo. Sure, he has a fancy saberstaff, but... What can he really do beyond that? No CC, no aoe. Just.. Hit and run :( )) ((Except on Bespin. Tossing people down the map is priceless on that one.))

  • I know how to play as maul.Not really a terrible choice for me
  • Fair enough.

    But yeah, your Chewie problem will remain just that, I fear. You'll probably beat him if you can bait out his Overload and his grenade. But even then, it's a fight you won't leave unscathed from. Best you can do is keep him away from the battle with Choke Holds. For the times it DOESN'T glitch out on you, that is.

    Way things are now in HvV? Nerfing 'Bacca is baka... :sweat:
  • he's not the only counter to the villains. any skilled player can handle themselves with han lando or yoda. OP is right
  • He is, but if you nerf Chewie, you have to balance the rest. Because a good Vader is unstoppable, except for when faced by a good Chewbacca.

    Maul is actually a good counter to Chewy as long as you dont get hit by his shock grenade do to how hard he is to hit and the saber stagger makes it hard to hit him even when hes in your face as its a bit disorienting. as far as how good Maul is in general hes a great pick for both HvV and GA he is far from terrible.

    Nerfing Chewbacca makes me laugh. Never felt playing against him in HvV was unfair compaired to Lando's stun nade and considering Kylo's freeze, Vader's choke, Iden's stun droid, and the overall dps of the villains. Fighting vs Chewy was all about anticipating when he was nearby and about to throw his stun nade. Always make sure to dodge behind cover when he throws it that way the stun wears off while protected, then pop out or flank around to take him out.

    As far GA goes, I love playing him and have take out several villains that were decimating my team as Palpatine, Vader, Boskk or other. Chewy in GA is great playing the team support role. The biggest issues I find with him is he's not tanky enough and has no way to heal. Also, his blaster has too much spread. I always hated the multi-shot feature of his blaster because you can't be accurate with it and it isn't cannon with the movies.

    Lastly, I would love to use the melee more in GA, but he dies to quickly for it to be practical. I'm doubtful the heal card he will get for killing people with ground slam will be worth it due to how quicky he can be gunned down while attempting melee and the fact that ground slam damage isn't high enough to kill in a single hit on most enemies.

  • I'm tired of you people saying counters like he still isnt broken. I'm a amazing player & do i struggle against him no I'll just be iden or vader & stun him & with vader dodge his stun & tank his furious bowcaster. His damage is crazy he can 3 shot iden, boba, & bossk & 7 shot (maybe less) vader with furious resilience.
  • Chewie is no different from how you would encounter a WW albeit with out the room clearing grenade

    I do agree that the Furious Bowcaster or whatever the name it is, is kind of a little bit OP, but not much. If you have a good skills you can really destroy him. Teamwork is the key.

    I always play as the Emperor Palpatine and honestly it's not that hard. You just have to play your cards right and he will fall.
  • Kylo, Iden, Vader, and the 4th pick is a blaster to counter whatever the enemy comp is. ((Phasma if they're **** and pick 3 sabers because amgamgamg glowsticks force powarszzz weeeee!")) ((Boba for that extra oomph in damage.)) ((Bosk for harassment damage and securing a zone / target.)) ((Emperor Palpatine is the "Shii-Cho" here. An effective pick to fall back to, when no other pick will do.))

    Dark Side ideal comp right there. If this fails, then it's probably just the DS team that sucks.

    For lightside, so long as it includes Chewie and Lando, you're good.

    2 sabers. 2 blasters.
