Here's a Hero Idea...What about Pong Krell?

I've thought about this for a long time and we could get a free DLC update centered around the conflict in Umbara.

New map: Umbara
The map would take place in a dark forest with many trees, rocks, and small hills. There would be a center area with a long runway for vehicles to go through and of course an arena like area where the creature from the Clone Wars killed Hardcase and pacified Krell. We could also get the wide open area which leads to the Republic Base in Umbara.

New soldier outfits: Arc Troopers
This is self explanatory. We can get Legendary outfits in the form of Arc troopers.

New Hero: Pong Krell.
The first character in Star Wars to use two double bladed lightsabers (I think...) which is really cool. Pong Krell would be on the Dark Side (for anyone who watched the Clone Wars, you'd understand why.)

Left Ability: Force Repel (or is it Repulse?)
Description: Similar to Skywalker, Pong Krell uses the Force to push back anyone too close to him in a circular radius.

Right Ability: Saber Arc
Description: Pong Krell can throw one of his lightsabers in a half circle arc in front of him. The longer the button is held, the arc widens and the range increases.

Middle Ability: Jedi Leap
Description: Pong Krell will leap into the air spinning his lightsabers and come back down, jamming his blades into the ground and knocking over anyone within his radius. Anyone close enough to him will be killed.

Lines: This is where everyone else can come in.

Emotes:
It's treason then.
You dare attack a Jedi!?
You're committing mutiny.
I will not be undermined by creatures bred in some laboratory!

Should the Umbara military take over as the enemy instead of the Separatists? After all, the Republic didn't fight droids. Actually, this could make for a unique GA map.

And if this update does happen, please let there be new weapons. Seriously, DICE. It's time for new guns.

I keep changing this for whatever reason but ehh...It can stay like this I suppose.

  • Too few people know who the heck he is, he's not mainstream enough, he's at the back of the queue behind Bib Fortuna, Fake Wedge and Jar Jar Binks.

    Bossk isn't very mainstream.

    Nor is Dengar and we got him in the last game.

    That's my point, heroes don't have to be mainstream to get into this game.

  • Fun idea! There are a lot of other villians I'd want before him, but he certainly would be a blast to play with! A giant of a beast of a man with 4 arms and 2 double bladed sabers! Uhm yes please!

    ST Porg > CW Pong Krell

    Well thought out concept, though.

    Will he have an "Be a D-Hole" ability?
    "I felt there was a large amount of human chauvinism... also I felt very bad that at the end the Wookie didn't get a medal also... oh, all the people got medals but the Wookie who had been in there fighting all the time, didn't get any medal, and I thought that was an example of Anti-Wookie discrimination." - Carl Sagan on the subject of Star Wars
    He knew.

    I LOL’d for about 30 seconds at the thought of Pong Krell being a playable character :D

    A secret ability where he can turn teammates against one another and earn double points!

  • I think it’d be great. The DS has too few saber heroes compared to the LS as it is. He is a bit obscure, but good grief! It would be awesome to play that guy in this game! That’s it! Mace Windu paired with Pong Krell!!!

    lol at all the downers thumbing their noses at this. Really a porg above pong krell? Ha. what do you got? Admiral Ackbar? Purple Haired Lady? Potato Wedge? lmao give me a break, even bigger losers than those scene extra's or whoever else there is to dredge up from the OT and ST combined.

    Cad Bane, Ashoka, Ventress, even captain rex > over Jyn Erso, Krennic, and tarkin/Blue Admiral guy any day of the week. Let's be real here, those aren't Heroes, just more thugs with fancy gadgets, made-up buffs, and an overpowered blaster. Finn should be the last of that.

    Ig-88, Zuckuss, 4-Lom are the only characters actually cool enough to be in the game from the OT, almost no counter heroes on the light side to match them with though. Everythings been retconned.

    Edit: I take back what I said about Tarkin and Thrawn both appeared in rebels and in the clone wars, so they're semi-qualified, as stupid as they'd be.

  • Postpone Jyn and Krenic Rogue one season and continue with clone wars another season after anakin and dooku. Swap out Padme for Mace Windu to be against Jango. Padme will literally be a clone of Her daughter and totally uninteresting compared to Mace. No trash abilities on Windu either, We better not see another lazy force push or clone of Kylo's Frenzy. Needs Shatterpoint, ability to represent his unique Lightsaber form, and maybe another force power we haven't seen.

    If this games got any juice left after Jyn and Krennic and we go into community requested heroes the list should be almost exclusively clone wars. Bar the ports of Nien Nubb, Greedo, and Dengar. Maybe the other bounty Hunters. We also NEED the old ben skin when they do come out, earlier if possible.

    While I disagree, you got an Awesome for namedropping that snitch!
  • I'd love Pong Krell, but technically isn't he a villain no?

    He is. Pong Krell and the rogue Jedi Barriss should be villians to counter regular Jedi like kit fisco, this way more Jedi hero’s and villians but Savage Opress and Mace windo season needed
  • Too few people know who the heck he is, he's not mainstream enough, he's at the back of the queue behind Bib Fortuna, Fake Wedge and Jar Jar Binks.

    Bossk isn't very mainstream.

    Oh, and Pong Krell is? I had to look him up to even find out who he was! And I'm much more a hardcore Star Wars fan than 95% of people I know.
    Bossk was in one of the original trilogy and mentioned in Solo, Pong Krell has no presence in any of the movies at all. He appeared in the Clone Wars TV series... but then so did Bossk.
    Bossk has had action figures since ESB came out, as far as I am aware Pong Krell doesn't have an action figure. Action figures are great for public awareness. Just look how far Snaggletooth went, and yet you'll be lucky to spot him in ANH at all.
    Bossk is kind of cool looking. Pong Krell just looks like a buffoon.

    So yes, Bossk is more mainstream than Pong Krell, as I have objectively shown.

    Your opinion is automatically made worthless by not even knowing Mace Windu's proper name, whilst campaigning for someone who isn't in the movies at all.
  • Who??

    That's my point, heroes don't have to be mainstream to get into this game.

    They have to be in a STAR WARS MOVIE though.

    Iden Versio and I didn't see her in a movie unless there's a Star Wars movie with her in it that I don't know about. Anyone? No? Welp...

    Strawman reasoning (which I was expecting someone to spout out). It's a bit different when the GAME ITSELF introduces the character, thus ensuring that EVERY PLAYER knows who they are.
    Does EVERY PLAYER know who Pong Krell is? Do they?
    Do they?

    This guy. The perfect counter? K-2SO. Jyn and Krennic are in thing... To me, K-2SO is the single best remaining movie character from the OT era. Two droids as heroes, both heavy combat specialists. I don’t know why the cry for K-2SO for the LS lineup hasn’t been louder. And yeah, I’m on board with the rest of your post.

    And this 100.

    Look I’m old school. Saw Star Wars in the cinema at 6 years old. I resisted the animated series until this game. Saw it this summer. It was way better than I’d expected. I like all eras of Star Wars. Total homer with OT leanings. Soft spot in the heart and alll... But the PT/CW has without a doubt the most canon content. And it’s straight video game worthy content.
  • Granted, Pong was a cool character. A huge dexter jester with a dual bladed green saber ? Dope

    He’ll never be in the game though.
  • Mother Talzin is all I’ve been after since wishes were a thing. :smile:

    She’d have a diverse set of abilities differing from sabres or blasters. More like palpatine.
