Title. You guys catered to the casuals who complained that they couldn't beat Finn in a fight so annoying how lightsabers maul in particular can spam swing without consequence. Where as it took some skill pre nerfing of the roll

  • This must be a console issue, saber hero on PC is essentially a free kill. Auto respawn is more useful

    👆This.

    If you spam swing as a saber Hero/Villain on PC, you’re as good as dead with enemy Blaster Villains around. They will shred you up. Even troopers on PC will make you suffer. Idk about console target acquisition, but saber spam is a big no no on PC. Same for Block spamming too. If the enemies notice what you’re doing, and they’re competent, they’ll switch to a Blaster hero to counter that nonsense immediately. And stinger pistols, don’t forget about the Stinger pistols. :naughty:

    Roll backwards whenever they are behind you
    Basically however they are facing you, roll towards them

    Rule 1 to good saber play...

    Don’t spam the melee, you will just swing around getting shot at and won’t make it long before your demise.

    Nah pro battlefront player & during the old patch what was 1.2 you couldn't spam without being severely punished. You could roll backwards & not be tracked by sabers. You're rewarded for spamming more than anything. It's am observation more than anything

    Your referring to yourself as a pro battlefront player? and are on console?.....well ok then. Back on topic, spam on PC is a non issue, since you will be shredded the second you come against an even half competent trooper let alone blaster hero.

    I read it. It says, “title”. Then your post goes into a rambled few sentences that make little to no sense. The title was the only thing that made sense and your post pointed me to the title, so I addressed it.

    Make sure your post is clear before you criticize my interpretation of it.

  • This one is actually valid right now. For whatever reason, you'll get staggered into and endless stunloop and can't roll out of it, like you could after 1 swing previously. Even the dodge detection has gotten, dare I say it, even sloppier.

    But then, I've always been in favour of returning the dodgeroll back to launch-tier.

  • 2 cents.
    • Game runs 100x better on PC than it does Consoles.
    • Keyboard and Mouse makes Blasters/Blaster heroes easier to play.
    • Many won't agree, consoles take more skill to be good, but there are less skilled players due to controller. So steam rolls are more frequent.
    • I have 0 trust on computer when playing. Even the short times I have played and played with @Dash
    • we have ran into exploiters and hackers. Smart cheaters will not make it super obvious and just seems like they have a slight edge on you. seen this in streams etc all the time.

    I play on 90% sensitivity and it's still 1000% easier to shoot with KB&M. It's vastly superior than controllers.

    Unit you're a good player, which means you would preform on Computer also. As I did. When you're good you're good. when you're bad, on console, KB&M can make up for a lot on computer, I mean a lot. Which is why there are a "lot more" better players on computer than consoles. Skill gap is easier on computer.

    How good do you think you are son? I agree it takes more skill to be good on console but I still don’t think you could be as good as a great pc player bc the “skill ceiling” for aiming is higher on PC.

    I have played for a long time with a controller on PC before switching to the Mouse and KB, never felt disadvantaged a single time in any gamemode. And i know people who still play with controllers and have no issue. So i invite any console player to come on PC with their usual controller, if you're good on console you're going to be good on PC, i don't buy any of these PC stories for kids.
