Am I the only one that thinks Anakin is a horrible designed Hero?

He tbh kind of ruined the game for me. I’m dead serious. Anytime I see him I get remembered how fun GA & especially HvV was before him. His skill set is so unrealistically overpowered, I doubt that the Hotfix today can fix that. It’s just lazy design

“yea make him have uhhh... one big AOE Push trooper instakill ability and uhhhh... yea another choke or push or whatever tf retribution is and uhh... oh let’s give him 145 dmg (Maul has 100) per swing and 1000 health because uh.. because uhh... and lets give him an ultimate but only him and uh....”
Make Maul great again.

    I don't know if its just him. For me it's generaly the numer of Heroes on GA.

    With Anakin in his current state, hero cap should be reduced to 2 honestly.

    Matter of fact let the lightside have 2 & the darkside have 4. Seems balanced

    I just played a round of GA, and after Anakin ragdolled the whole map around with his 3 ragdoll rage OP lazy noob abilities, I just quit. Logged out and uninstalled the ***** game.

    it’s just ridiculous what the gaming industry does to such a powerful brand as Star Wars. I just can’t take it anymore. I’ll install Battlefront 2 & Movie Battlers again.

    That anakin barely had 3 Cards btw but still had 30+ kills.

    WHAT WERE THEY THINKING WITH THIS CHARACTER?!
    Make Maul great again.

    Well, I don't like him in the least, but there may be a bias bc I've never liked the way he was portrayed by LucasFilm ... a self entitled, egotistical kid that always craved being the centre of attention.

    And he's no different in BF2, the way he's presence has shifted the dynamic of the entire game is an indication of what a spotlight hugging smuck he really is

    My favourite part of the PT was when Obi wan destroyed him

    I agree, but I blame Lucas for this. Some badly designed Star Wars characters can ruin everything. Prequels aren't my favourite Star Wars movies. Anakin was horrible designed character in first place in the movies with bad acting and everything, Anakin boy was the worse.

    Well if it was up to me, every force-using hero would be similar to how Anakin has been designed, (OHK abilities, AOE attacks, abilities to suit every scenario, etc) i don't think his design is bad at all, in fact i think it's probably the best-designed hero they've released yet. A real powerhouse as heroes should be, i don't get what all the crying is about when heroes back in 2015 could go on 300 kill streaks.. gimme a break.

    Besides, you could use the "Chosen One" card as an excuse i guess but this game is far from realistic lore-wise otherwise things would be VERY different gameplay-wise.

    I agree with everything they'd done for Anakin's design EXCEPT for the fact that they don't think other heroes should have a 4th ultimate ability. One hero having that when others don't is both stupid as it is ridiculous. It's the HoK card thing all over again, some heroes had them when others didn't. They didn't learn from that apparently, probably never will.

    Though it kinda says things about Dice's design choices when a younger version of Vader has a massive 360 degree AOE force choke that can one-shot heroes on low health but an older version of Vader that has MASTERED THE ART OF THE FORCE CHOKE doesn't have a 360 degree choke, can't 1-shot even a regular trooper and can only choke them for a split second. Great design choices Dice.. not.

    I just recorded some hilarious footage using him and fighting against him that may take up two videos

    In the meantime tell me how this is fun for anyone?

    All old heroes have new slots, it's clearly a future thing so they will make ultimates soon it takes time

    Im gonna revive this post bc i really think Anakin was so thrown together, his abilities could have been something new to add to battlfront instead they just used recycled content, They have millions of possibilities and they just used already made stuff in battlfront

    You got my support OP anakin has ruined GA for me the creativity level of anakin compared to maul or yoda is dreadful. Worst part is theres no skill whatsoever involved in using his TWO 360° AOE abilities. Just jump in and hit the button and you have an instant killstreak going plus control of the objective area. GREAT!!!
