Ok, now I’m CRYING for a Grievous nerf

Prev1
We have been asking for it almost for a day, and all of him is OP: the claw rush (it makes you unable to stand infront of him, it’s obviously really fast, it damages you too and knocks you over [it’s even better than Chewie’s!]), his lightsabers from behind are very powerful (they kill with 2 shots from close range, with a star car they kill with just one shot, and the standard sabers from the front is quite balanced without the Sith Trained card, then he is able to have almost 90% more damage reduction when using claw rush with a star car and finally he gains an insane amount of assists: a good player is always on top of the leader board and gets a 10 killstreak in three minutes or less (Yoda also can but he’s only one problem with him) and a bad player gains a lot of assists and after many minutes he gains also the double kill

If that’s not enough a lot of matches are conformed by 50% (if not more) of people trying to get Grievous

Many of you will say he’s fine, as you have said before, and I don’t matter if you call me a crying baby noob, and more than 60% of the community wants a Grievous nerf and some devs have realized too

    Erm... instead of a nerf I think he would more likely need some fixes for his abilities, he’s a little bit impractical
  • wow, you must have already got the Hot fix, because the Grievous I played was a buggy mess. His abilities do more Harm than good 50% the time. Bad pick in galactic assault.

    Theres an infinite stun bug with thrust surge that permanently disables control of Grievous until you are defeated. He needs a buff.

  • Also when he’s useing his attacks he’s kinda open for shots. Just use Chewie n he’s done for.
  • His abilities do need to be fixed up a bit though. And @AbyssWatch3r is right. That infinite stun is a problem.

    and some devs have realized too

    It's even worse than Vader stuck in the choke animation, or maul losing the ability to even Jump. If the trooper you target get's too close to you before you charge. He rushes at them, then circles them like Jaws with all 4 arms extended, and eventually straight into the nearest wall until your dead.... Broken. Not to mention it has like 40% accuracy, even if target is standing still.... WHAT?!

    Take that ability out, screw it. In the next update give Grievous His blaster or something. If anything it deserves it's own damage reduction card, you'll lose HP using it.

  • OP, would this one work for him?

    I can't believe the devs missed this opportunity!
    Somewhere between "the sky is falling" and "everything is awesome" lies the truth.
  • I’m actually not sure if the OP is joking or not. This is a first. Either way, it’s absolutely hilarious!

    Completely disagree, abilities are terrible seeing as the claw rush is easily avoided by rolling, unrelenting advance just isn't any good against other heroes and also his movement speed is ridiculously slow, even troopers can stay away from him and he has no abilities to slow them down. He, I personally believe, needs a movement speed buff.

    Hey, I am getting better and better with Grievous last HvV match first place and all without HoK card. Level 8 at the moment. I would not think about nerfs and buffs for Grievous at the moment, because his abilities are a bit buggy at the moment. But what I know is, 1. Ability deals about 150 Damage 2. Ability deals about 80 Damage per hit. 3. Ability deals about 130 Damage. A normal strike with his lightsaber deals about 130 damage.
    That are really high damage values. But as i said sometimes he hit someone with his 1. Ability and causes no damage. Then his 2. Ability can be stopped by a punch, how ridiculous. 3. Ability is not causing damage all the time and it's a bit tricky to handle or to stop it, if you are stuck in a wall.

    The reload times for his abilities are between 10-12 s round about.
  • I am pretty sure he is trolling. Grievous to me seemed clumsy, underpowered and slow. He may need a buff after all.

    A buff? I would suggest to fix his buggy abilities first.
    After that you can decide.

    I bet Grievous will get a nerf soon. His lightsaber strikes causes 130 Damage + Bonus starcard it would be 160, that's too much in my opinion. He can spam and kill 2 heroes at the same time and than with his HoK card. At the moment I am always under the Top 3 with him.
  • Some of you are really lucky... About 10 matches of HvV and I haven't been able to play as him yet...

    He takes a bit to get used to, keep in mind he's a tactician. Run in and out of a fight.

    You can't run straight into a group of enemies, that's not the Grievous way.

    I'm sorry. Let me change that to "50% of the playerbase when getting to pick a hero."

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

    It is really not luck at all, it is called SSD drive which does allow faster loading times for your PS4 so you will get grievous 10 out of 10. Also, PS4 pro will be faster than any 1st generation PS4 console.

  • A large nerf , mysterious and cool . The community is asking . Grivoeus needs more iconic and nerf. Imagine Galactic Battle with the Grivoeus getting the nerf.
    we want nerf.

    Yeah. Many players run in headfirst... Then lose 800hp to me. The smart ones focus on key objective players, and help the team and dominate small skirmishes or jump in and out. They do well. Play him like an ariel.

  • Not seeing the OP at all. Just played HvV and absolutely destroyed GG with Han one on one.
  • His Unrelenting Advance is incredibly overpowered. When you activate it, it actually overpowers GG himself so he just starts turning away from his target. It's as if it's overpowering my controller!

    Nerf it!

    The worst villain in GA. Very slow and low stamina.
    In HvV he has no change against Chewbacca or Lando.

    Can't get used to him, if everyone picks him before you, also lock on for thrust surge could be buffed to lock on quicker and could do more AOE damage. Claw rush is fine, easy to avoid, don't listen to someone who doesn't want to press A/D (Move the thumbstick), also - Unrelenting advance would be 1000% better without the tank controls but rather slower normal movement.

    I’m pretty sure he didn’t mention Leia, anyways Grievous can be easily killed by any blaster hero with his current buggy state and killing a blaster hero with Grievous can be really hard with his bad strike lock, unless you surprise them from behind
