  • The update for xbox one was around 2.6gb and yes please turn off EOR MM!
  • PLEASE...PLEASE..BALANCE the teams!!!!! The villains are now totally lopsided. You guys said you would release grevious and obi-wan together. Anikan with dooku.. It makes sense. BALANCE the teams. Give the hero's 4 SABERS.
  • Thrust surge ability not working.

    What's with the lack of post match info? No stats or xp showing up

    just a bug, creds are registered or at least should be, cannot say for XP.
    i know that it happens if you played ARCADE mode prior to online game, but i seen here some guys writing they had this bug even when no arcade mode was started prior to online game.

    Typical. 1 of the only times I've played arcade before online. I've restarted the entire game and went straight online so fingers crossed it's sorted itself out. Thanks :)

    Today I played arcade to test Grievous and then I had a few HvH matches but the bug didn’t effect me as always
  • His jump animation looks a tad bland, out of place somehow

    No they said General Grevous and Obi wan in the fall which doesn’t mean they were going to release together

    Honestly I'm a bit disappointed. Grievous doesn't really have much of a saber combo to begin with not to mention his aerial attack is pretty basic. All three of his abilities are either broken half the time or just aren't viable in battle. Nonetheless he still looks cool...when he's not getting surrounded by noobs who saber spam him the first chance they get. Better not play him for a while so he's not the main center of attention to the enemy team.

    With his star cards he’s pretty good but if you have the right ones.

    But the original roadmap is no more, and have been no more for a while. We have been given updated roadmaps since.

    I know. Was just backing up the person that thought that this was still the case as proof that it once was correct.

    Without his star cards he was pretty good. My first round of HvV with him I topped the board and played that hit and fade style. Once you get the drop on someone it doesn't take long to finish them off.

    I’ve been pleased with your positive feedback on Grievous. I’ve only had the chance to play him once and that was in GA. Well once in HS but that was just to see him on screen, and was a disaster. I attained level 2 in GA but didn’t really do well. I’m glad you are. I realize he’ll take a little getting used to and the opportunities to play him are scarce right now. Anyway, keep the input coming. It’s appreciated.
  • His L1 ability hardly ever hits, check the hitbox on this ability.

    His L1+R1 ability has a wicked slow turning radius and should be increased to be useful.

    R1 ability seems fine as is.

    Sure is. Which is why I ignored all feedback from basically everyone until the end of day 1/having 25 levels.

    It’s palpatine all over again/launch day. People generally haven’t a clue until time and experience kicks in.

    Even with his buggy animations and abilities, he’s got great utility and a learning curve. So naturally with time everyone gets better with him. And naturally with patches he gets tuned better as well.

    Grievous is a great villain.

    Take these videos by SwanyPlaysGames for example, he made a 15 minutes video to say how bad Grievous is....




    But then after he got his cards to purple he made this video....

    Thank you so much! You have no clue how long I've been wanting know where that character came from ever since I discovered an easter egg on the jedi temple dlc for the first force unleashed game.
    Hi.
  • death... death... and more death with Greivous - just like I thought - and he needs tweaks not buffs. This fool is coming from every direction with that crawl mechanic and slim profile - he looks like a tree on Endor
    had em' down... ready to deliver the final blow... then Vader and Palp show'd up with an Electro-Azimuth-Saber-Yield (EASY)

  • Don't have a problem with Grevious
    My boy loves the opportunity to play against me in arcade
    The only problem I have is that they should of had Obi Wan out at the same time
    Plus more SA,GA and Extraction maps
    That's life

    I have not fought a competent Grievous to date. All of them have been stupid enough to go 1 v 1 as Lando. Or any blaster, for that matter.

    He's dominated other sabers though, when my friends play him.

    Sabers though.. ick. Could we give the Lightsabers a rest and get more Blasters after Anakin and Dooku are released, pls?
    Heart of darkness beateth, Ultima
    Iron enigma treateth, Ultima
    Shielding light retreateth, Ultima
    Hydaelyn defeated. Ah, Ultima


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

    I commend DICE for making Grevous weak without star cards so only us experience players who level him up can really enjoy him. Very appreciate that.

    Sith trained purple
    Beating heart purple
    Cyborg rage purple

    Great Villian
  • I found the most delightful bug with him last night in HvV. After he died, I couldn't reselect a different character (I wanted to switch to Bossk, is that too much to ask?)

    Yeah, that’s already been discussed since day one of the update. It’s not a bug with GG; it’s a bug with HvV.

    Regardless of which side you play, once you’ve selected a character, you’re locked in with that one until the match ends.
  • this hero is funny

    1. his left and middle abilities don't do anything or anything useful
    2. if he gets shot he dies
    3. if he gets close to you he can one hit kill any trooper and 2-3 hit kill any hero
    4. when an enemy is near him, they are revealed with a white outline! he has his own insight!
    5. he can regenerate 400 health!

    350 to be exact with max health regen card. And blaster hero’s 10 shot him more like it but I can easily kill them with max star cards unless they use stuns and grenade. The only hero’s that I find troublesome as Grevous is chewbacca and Han, everyone else is easily to kill.

  • I like the new Grievous Character. Thoughts so far:

    - He is less mobile than Vader! Turn arc is far too wide/slow
    - Unrelenting Rush should be a little more fluid and mobile. Sometimes it roots to one spot.
    - Should have been released with Obi Wan or some other character as it is very difficult to get him for a round. Everybody wants to play him and level up :D >:)
    - Striking and Thrust Surge seem a bit off. A lot of swiping misses.

    Great force/mechanical jump!
    Claw Rush is the best of his abilities beside the jump.... get's one out of trouble plus causes plenty!

    Great work!!!!!

    If his propeller stance is meant to lead your troops through corridors towards an objective, then it doesn't work. Too many movement impairing effects stop him dead in his tracks and it doesn't last long enough, let alone the damage it does. The damage protection during claw rush should stay on for 2-3 more seconds after leaving claw rush, we need that time to find our bearings, to find out who got killed by claw rush, who just got knocked over and where the next biggest threat is.
    I know some fishy guys finished him 2 days after release on PC but they played him everything but tactical. They did their own thing, as usual, never risking their lives for the team, which, in most cases, isn't worth it anyway. But heroes need to be designed with teamplay in mind, so yeah, he needs a couple of tweaks still.

    Just hit "circle", it''ll unlock your current Hero and you'll be able to reselect. Happened to me too.

    I've come to like GG, as he's quite strong in HvV. You need to use him surgically, but the fact that he can jump and move relatively nimbly makes him viable. The one ability I thought I would never use, Claw Rush, is now my go-to power with him, as the others are simply not working as intended. Unrelenting Advance equals suicide every time and Thrust Surge is just too iffy.

    I love the double bonus from behide mechanic to make him feel more movie accurate with giving him bonus damage for attacking behide a player as a coward. Love it. Also everything about him is good, just fix his two abilities or theust surge at least because I can use a rey type dash/Luke slash attack for Grevous. After his abilities are fix, please don’t neft him or buff him. Just leave him the same.
  • 2. if he gets shot he dies

    Really?! In a shooter game?! Well I never!
