    8k1pjwthrffm.gif

    No, honestly Luke, its true! I know I am not toeing the party line by saying its broken or needs a nerf, but its true!

    So onto the footage, generally quick clips. First off:



    Notice how I am using Phasma, who is seen as one of the worst villains by many of the amazing players on here. And loom at the beautiful counters! A stun droid. A stun! Who would have thought that would stop a colossus one hit killing machine like Anakin?! And actually rolling out of the way of his saber hits. Beautifully timed! Well placed shots! And down goes Anakin. Surely I enter the Guiness Book of Records for being the first player in the history of Battlefront 2 to find a counter to Anakin and kill him? Because according to some on here he would have one shotted me from across the map, or his passionate strike would destroy me, or his general damage would annihilate me.

    Another similar kill, again using Phasma:



    Notice he is at full health, and takes my health down to about a 5th left with a couple hits. But unlike some on here, I actually fought back and he...well, he died! I didnt put my controller down after he hit me, pick up my pitchfork, march to my PC and furiously type out that Anakin is broken and needs nerfed. No - I countered. With a stun droid and some ingenuity of my own using rolling. Almost like Batman.

    Next up, Anakin being killed again by other means:



    Notice this strange thing called teamwork. Iden stuns and places her shots, I have my droid at the ready, and Grievous flies in with his aggressive hits using those skinny arms. And we beat Anakin. But he should have one shotted you, hes broken, I hear you cry. Nay I say.

    So there you go, live footage of beating Anakin with a couple of counters.

    Oh and an extra lesson - the do's and dont's vs Anakin this time. Watch this:



    Notice when I power up heroic impact, that Vader notices I am building up and wisely moves out the way, ready to smash my head in once the animation is finished. He also holds block for good measure. Do be like Vader when taking Anakin on. If you are a trooper, move well away from him.
    Notice how Dooku goes flying into me thinking he can take me down. Silly Dooku. He effectively kills himself by letting me have his damage to hit back at him. Don't be like Dooku. That is silly. A simple wait of a few seconds and then you can continue trying to kill Anakin at your leisure.

    So there you have it. He doesnt one shot everyone at will, and he can be countered and beaten fairly easily I might add.

    Any thoughts?


    I take it since you posted these specific vids these are the only times you defeated anakin. Twice when he was at 1 hp, the other time you found someone dumb enough to stand next to a stun drone instead of just pulling you out of range with da force.

    The guys OP in any gameplay since. He has high HP, High damage, High mobility, and 3 AOE crowd controls that all do high damage. It's not really debatable, any competent player can wipe teams with anakin. Hoping the guy playing him is stupid is not a counter.
  • They need to nerf the damage on his CC abilities.
  • Ani is beaten like any other hero, except he's a good deal more durable if played right. Other heroes need damage reduction abilities so they aren't lit up when trying to push. Most heroes are situational and rely heavily on their force powers or other abilities. People say Bossk is good, but when he's out of dioxis or spamming his grenades he's squishy.

    All other heroes play like garbage half the time. Anakin has cards so that he doesn't. With normal saber heroes it takes 3 swings to kill one single infantry. Anakin can get it done with one, just like the BF2015 game. You can still roll through his swings and get a lucky jump shot or two in, which prolongs him. That's key to beating him in GA and CS. Prolong him so that your team can take him down. It's not often that he has no abilities left to beat you but there's counters to everything and everyone. If you can't get it done with regular infantry in CS, a team up of infantry and the new Droid reinforcements can really hurt him. Their blades even knock him down, follow it up and finish him off with grenades. The specialists stinger pistol and shock grenade slow him down so you can get him good with those too.

    I disagree, Anakin needs a serious nerf. You might be saying that he can be easily countered but the proof that your only showing is Captain Phasma because of her stun droid.

    You have not shown any other heroes, so if only Captain Phasma can only counter Anakin as you suggest, then Anakin is too OP.

    If you want to prove me wrong, you need to show other villains who can counter Anakin, because all your saying is that he can be countered by only one villain, Phasma.

    Plus without the droid, Phasma is a free kill. No-one can counter Anakin unless they stunned him which is wrong and he is way too OP.
  • Wow, Anakin can be beaten in the worst designed game mode in existence.

    Let's throw a freaking woopty doo party for that poopty poo mode.

    Meanwhile, Anakin breaks CS and GA to the point of both modes being unplayable.

    Your video shows NOTHING. A good Anakin would have just waited the 14 seconds for the skill cooldown. Used pull on you so you are away from the Droid, and you're dead.

    I am part of a clan that has 6 members in the top 10 in Battlefront 2 PC (in K/D or most elimination in a game), and we solo we are usually always the top in GA or Supremacy. So here is my two cents coming from a player who plays with the top 1% (and usually always the top 10% in HVV) players.


    1. There is 0 doubt that Anakin i the MOST OP hero in the game, and by a LONG shot. He has a combo that can kill ANY hero at full health without a block ability. I've played against top 10% sabre hero players and we all agree that you SIMPLY CANNOT play against them using any non-block hero.

    2. He does the most sabre damage, and he has one of the most stamina. On top of that, he has 2 abilities that can take away more than 1/2 the health of any hero player (and kill anything in sight) even with his recent nerf. The part is that he doesn't need to "aim" and the damage output has a huge radius.

    3. He is the anti-hero. Even with the upcoming "strike" nerf and "radius" reduction, he will still be the most OP hero in HVV. In GA, where someone can run easier, he will be the best hero, but no longer so far ahead of his competitors.


    PLEASE DEVS: heroes should be balanced using statistics from the top 10% of players. Anakin, used by a top player, is currently THE BEST HERO IN THE GAME. Anyone using these videos to show a bad Anakin player means nothing.

    I am putting an OPEN CHALLENGE to any PC player who thinks he can counter a top Anakin player with any dark side hero.

    PM me your Origin account name, and we can set up a game.

    No one ever takes challenges like this. Trust me, I've tried to prove points with gameplay and no one ever accepts the challenge. They know their argument is garbage.

    Ah the baiting of this thread reeled in so many fish

    Never been fishing before but I reckon I would be pretty great at it

    Just stand by the water, shout 'Anakin isn't OP!' and the fish throw themselves out of the water at you

    Try this for a counter (keep it top secret tho):
    Vader Cards: Tigher Grip (40% longer choke), Double Dmg with 2 or more Choked & 25% Dmg reduction. That's right don't need your life regain card and I guarantee you wont even be touched if you stick with Phasma's droid.

    Here's the scenario that 90% of Anakins do. As soon as he sees Vader he will force pull, you will be blocking so now hes lost that ability, he will run closer and hit heroic might you will then laugh cause now you got him. "Your hope has blinded you" hold block and get as close as you can. as soon as he finishes the ability HIT THE CHOKE. With those cards hes going to lose a lot of life in the animation if you have a teammate close by (or troopers in GA) hes done cause the animation is extended by 40%. Let him drop and smash R2. you can get one maybe 2 hits in. Anakin will either A) jump away if he jumps time your saber throw, that might be enough for the kill. or B) he blocks but you got full health and maybe 25% dmg reduction and hes in close panicking with only block to protect him.

    If you're by a Phasma she'll shoot his during the choke, and the droid will stun him as hes dropped from the choke its 100% success rate (albeit 2v1).

    Only problem is the Choke ability has a long cooldown. Happy hunting

  • Vader/Kylo/Phasma/Emperor or Vader/Kylo/Phasma/Bossk or Kylo/Phasma/Bossk/Iden combo wrecks most teams since Anakin is a guarantee slot on the other side. The key is to stay with Phasma or Iden. Always be on the move though not straying far. Luke and Anakin will be the hardest because their push and pull. I don't know if it's official, but if Kylo stands in front and blocks the force abilities it has stopped it from hurting my teammates in HvV. Kylo is a great counter to other force users. Solid Freeze, Power reach and the more damage near teammates card are my go to. When a saber user tries to block, Iden's secondary fire and Bossk's dioxis/grenades force them to move. That's when Kylo comes in handy. They scatter and you pull. This is map situational too so you have to use that to your advantage.

    Imo he needs a rework not a nerf.

    REMOVE Retribution.
    MOVE Heroic Might to the 4th ability slot.
    REPLACE Right ability with Saber Throw.
    MOVE Passionate strike to the middle ability.

    So his abilities would be:

    Left ability: Pull dominance
    Middle ability: Passionate strike
    Right ability: Saber throw

    4th ability: heroic might (without the charge part)
    So essentially a powerful repulse.
    Or retribution could work if the radius was like Vaders choke, making the player have to aim the ability.

    Very simple changes that would balance him and give him more of a Jedi Guardian like feel, a little more saber focused rather than 4 cc abilities 3 of which are currently 360°AOE x20m radius with no aiming required.

    They added stats to the game now? Wow, wish I had that version of the game, and I wonder what other "features" you had added to your version of the game, being on PC and all. Actually I don't, because I would never look at the stats. You keep on being a legend in your own mind though.
