Obi-Wan bugs aside, is Fantastic in GA

Look we all know there is a block bug, a force push registry bug/issue, and his animations are delayed or too long. These issues can cause instant death, as well as sour the experience of playing one of the most Iconic and Amazing Heroes of the entire Star Wars Franchise/Battlefront Franchise.

I have always made guides, always posted videos in an attempt to help those who just don't have the time to figure these things out, or just want to learn a different way of doing things. I like writing guides, and i'm not going to stop. If even ONE person plays better because of a guide or video, that does it for me. Mission accomplished.

With that all said, I want to get onto the topic itself. Obi-Wan in GA specifically for this post. As some of you know I take Game balance and Mechanics seriously. I like to debate all aspects of the core mechanics of the game itself weekly with other forum members, and I apply that knowledge and write my guides from experience with said knowledge from my time playing.

A few days before Geonosis & Obi-Wan were deployed, I updated my Hero guide for Obi-Wan himself. You can read/see that here below:

https://battlefront-forums.ea.com/discussion/122961/definitive-hero-star-card-guide-revised-hok-cw-heroes-villains-updated

I wanted to give everyone a heads up with the Loadouts and possibilities for him as a New Hero being added to the Battlefront. What he could do, what Cards help him do it better, and what cards for what modes specifically amplify his role within this game. That role being Defender of Objectives & Protector of fellow Heroes. Sure he can stomp troopers like fodder, sure he can push objectives, he's a Jedi, he's Obi-Wan. But that is not all he can do, that is not his primary role. And a lot of people get that part of the game confused and assume that "ALL" heroes/villains are meant to move in and kill everything and button smash OMG KD! No, there's more to it. And the endless debates about "Buff this Hero/Nerf this Hero" will always be here, but this isn't about that. This is about playing a Hero to his niche, his style, his ROLE.

The Loadout I use for GA is:

With this Build, some of you would say "But why not his regen card"? Good question, that's for you to decide. But as for me, I use him Defensively. I don't need to regen 24/7 because I don't engage like a madman and lose all my HP repeatedly pretending he's another hero as I play him. Or forgetting the Game mode i'm in and acting like i'm an unstoppable force that cannot die. Knowing your limitations is the first step. Applying your experience is the second step. Knowing the ROLE your Hero lines up in is the last step.

You pick your hero, you set up your build to your play style, but none of it will matter if you play the hero wishing he was another hero/played like another hero. Obi-Wan may not seem like a "Master of Defense" with his bugs atm, but I promise you, you will think differently when his bugs are fixed. Because if he was how he was supposed to be, you guys would be enjoying his play style. But like we know, he deployed with bugs, "Surprise". :neutral: Not a surprise at all. But here we are.

Now enough of the talking, Let me show you what I mean with that build, being used by me in GA with his bugs/saber blocking issues:



Please feel free to chime in with your thoughts and Opinions. Be honest, and tell me how you would play him, and what your play style is like. What would you do with a Defensive designed Hero?

As always, thanks for taking the time to read one of my posts. May the Force be with Us, Always. :blush:

  • He has a great survivability there and I *love* his deflecting, so accurate. Agree with your thoughts he is a great defender and objective player. Might not be the best option for hero killstreaks but feels very nice defending your team to victory.

    Agreed.

    It just needed to be said. He’s not a “Skirmisher”. He’s a Protector & Guardian. He can defend an objective easily and assist/protect fellow heroes as well as troopers. He does that role perfectly. I can’t wait till they fix his bugs. :sunglasses:

  • I used his “Forward!” Star Card and not even at Epic it one shots non-heavies.

    Quickened focus is also very good too.

    His regen Card isn’t heavily necessary, because he already regens around half his health

  • Funny your build is probably is what seems to be the most offensive one for me yet you play him defensively. I'll probably run the same build or maybe use the other push card. I'll have to see which one feels the the best for me, well at least for the rare time I'll be using Obi in ga since I don't see a point using him over other heroes.

  • The biggest issue with him is obviously that he isn't voiced by Ewan Mcgregor.

    Even bugs aside I don't think he is good enough to phase out the Finn, Yoda, REY, and Lando/Han meta.

    Finn? I think he can; I rarely see a Finn. & lando how many landos you see on GA? Heck I rarely see rey's on the battlefront. I'm pretty sure people pick luke over rey. Anyway point is he can phase out a couple heros & the update in what less than a week he'll be even better.
  • Can’t agree

    I think he is very poor compared to the other light side saber users

    I use him because he is new but currently he is a waste of bp points

    Exactly, +1.

    That’s the way I set it up for GA purposefully. Offensive build, Played defensively, so that when enemies approach or get close, Instant death. They won’t survive the Defensive rush, or push. And as Obi is stats wise, he can block and soak a lot before going down, even without the cards for it. I keep the tanky build more for HVV.

  • I find obi wan very average like hero, it is neither good nor bad, I find that a very light up of his 3 capacities is necessary to make it a successful hero
    all the bugs apart, here's what I would like to obiwan

    force-push: reduction of the loading time of 0.50 s, even with the star card, it is slightly too long

    -Mental control: add a little extra like preventing the enemy from jumping or shooting or saber blocking, the capacity is good but imcomplete

    -rush saber: increase the running speed of the rush, obi wan is far too slow to surprise and eliminate his enemies

    for me obiwan is a medium hero but his high stamina is his little plus that makes it special ^^
  • When the push works it's amazing. Then again, like everyone else claims I haven't had much issues with it.
  • Great insight. Thanks for this.
  • I use health regen, more stamina gor blocking and health on kill card... I try to go behind the tropers and sneak kill them when attacking... When I am on defense I just pull out the block and troopers can shoot all day killing themselves... Then if I want to close the distance I use his rush... What I found out is that he is cool but there are few things that bother me... One is that while you block you van not triger his ruah ability... You have to drop the block and then you can perform rush, but between that actions there is like half second gap when you cant block and you can perform a rush being an easy target...also the fact that his push is bugy is kinda anoying... I saw one gude that shows your point marker must be spot on the enemy if he/she is on another level (higher or lower than you) othervise push will miss... And I don't know if its just me... But if am attacked by two villans with Lightsabers or Lightsaber and Palpy lightning, after first block I get hit even if I have more than half stamina and still blocking and after I dash sometimes block just completly doesn't work...

    I like the way you play him. Sounds like you thought it through and know your play style well. Very good insight for your style 100%.

    As for the block issues versus saber issues, I’m not entirely sure if it’s just an Obi thing, or a saber combat system thing. Because when I was on Luke I still finessed enemies like nothing. But when I got back on Obi it was broken. So it could be him, or just a random bug all around. My mind is kinda leaning towards it being exclusive to Obi though (Block bug).

    Same man. Just by playing him accordingly you can rack up kills while you defend and protect everyone. It’s extremely rewarding/satisfying.

  • What cards do people recommend for Obi in GA? I'm yet to get him in GA and really want to today and practice - is his extra regen neccesary? He does have the best base regen in the game already so if you don't use that card what are your recommendations?
