  • Anakin is becoming less of an issue as people learn to counter him.

    That said i still stopped an entire team in the hangar on crait earlier as my ani and had i not been there, theyd have deffo taken it as when i got ani there was 11 people on the objective and my team were not killing them.

    He does also very quickly deal with almost any villain if they even get close to him accidentally.

    Not saying he needs to be nerfed into the ground but he could do with balancing a little.

    Sure. There needs to be something done with Retribution to make it not a guaranteed kill.

  • Played two rounds of GA in Geonosis...It was interesting.

    DS: Once Phase 2 began, we immediately went straight to shoot at the walkers. We honestly stopped giving a damn about killstreaks or what not, all objective. By the time Phase 3 starts, we took out bout 4 walkers. Then at the end we held out long enough to destroy every walker. It was a rather satisfying win.

    LS: Somehow we sucked at Phase 1 and it took Obi-Wan and Anakin to bail us out. It was kind of a usual session since then (only went around blowing up stuff with an ion torpedo).

    ...Really weird back and forth.

    On consoles I won many matches when playing as DS side post patch Anakin...and yes it is true OG launch Anakin made it harder, not impossible, winning GA matches. So thought will give PC a go since that is my least played platform...and to check if Ani is any different there or not...seems more YT plebs are in there trying to be "pro's" or whatever.

    Here's a GA in Tatooine

    And here's HvV in Kessel where I joined during a DS 8 and LS 10 score

    By now almost everyone knows not to shoot Anakin during HM....seen many clear out when he's doing that move. Ani is already pretty manageable...and should he get another nerf due to these NPC whinge threads...he will be even easier.

    I don't know I have won games as the dark side. I main darth vader (Truthfully only level 40 character I have in the whole game) & have even gotten first place over anakins numerous times. I just don't take screenshots or videos because I play on xbox & well never been interested in taking pics or videos in general.

    Also I am not trying bait or anything (Really not) just saying my opinion. Also the few times I have played as anakin any good bossk or iden player can easily take him down. There been a few times I fought a camping bossk as anakin & been defeated. Was playing a game earlier & the whole team in HVV died due to a camping bossk.

    Also noticed Iden does a lot of damage with her secondary fire. She is a force to be reckoned with if no other allies are around.

    Anakin is only a force to be reckoned with in HVV now is if his retribution isn't charged. Yeah he does massive damage if the lightsaber damage card is fully leveled but even then. In HVV if he is alone and gets teamed up on easily get's destroyed as long as retribution isn't charged up and usable.

    Eh I miss read the first post post thought he said HVV not GA my bad lol. I rarely play GA because I find it stale. Hoping this new game mode tomorrow brings me back into the big game mode playing.

    But eh I can see how in GA Anakin could be a huge problem I mean regular soldiers have no way to block it. While heroes have a way to block it. I mean if you think about it most if not every solider class could & more then likely will be one shotted by anakin when he uses heroic might or retribution. If used at the right time it can bring the whole team down with the exception of heroes if they are blocking. Also the damage reduction doesn't help either.

    So I can see why people are complaining about anakin.

    Though I also do understand where people like anakin the way he is. In my opinion heroes and villians should be powerful (that's just my opinion once again). Not going to get into why I think they should be op many reasons.

    But I think the best solution here would be to nerf the damage reduction to 45% or 50%. That way he could still be OP but more fragile & killable. I mean with 90% damage reduction you are barely putting a dent into him. might as well say not even a scratch. With a lower damage reduction anakins would have to time there ability use even more because any player not affected by his attacks could easily bring him down now.

    That's my 2 cents only nerf needed is a nerf to damage reduction he shouldn't practically be invincible by using the force let alone charging it up. Pretty sure if we are going by realistic here even if anyone was using the force they would have a chance to get one hit K'O'd by a bullet or lightsaber even.

    You actually had an objective playing team?! Miraculous. Usually on my droid Geonosis teams, nobody cares about the walkers.
    Heroes are born on the battlefront... especially if you play the objective.

    Wise you are, for a relatively new poster. My respect, you have earned.

  • Retribution is not blockable. not intentionally anyway, prove me wrong.
    There is no animation before it engages so if you are around anakin and lower your block for one second anakin can seal your fate with the press of 1 button. THIS is what needs a nerfing/changing the most imo.
    Plus a radius nerf for sure.

    Eh no idea if it block able truthfully since I rarely see it in HVV the few times it has happened I think I am walking into it by blocking but taking tiny amount of damage. So I would assume if you could walk toward anakin while he is using retribution while blocking I would assume you could block it before he is uses it. If not then it should be block able at least as well with lights saber heroes.

    Also if they where to reduce the damage reduction down to (45% to 50%) Like I wrote in my post. If you have seen, people are shooting at anakin while he uses his heroic might, Retribution is still getting charged up because he is being hit while using heroic might.

    So if anakin has a 45 or 50% damage reduction instead of a 90% damage reduction. He will be taking damage with heroic might making anakin users would have to think twice about using heroic might to charge up retribution because they could die before heroic might could finish charging or risk dieing after words before they can use retribution.

    The way I see it the issue is not anakins ablities but because of the damage reduction. No one has a shot at killing him when he is using heroic might or retribution you lower or the damage reduction or a radical idea here remove it all together (which pretty sure no one wants so best solution would be to lower it) anakin would be extremely vulnerable & killable.

    I mean if the damage reduction is reduced anakin players would need to think more wisely when to using heroic might or retribution especially smarter then relying on heroic might to charge up retribution.
  • Yeah essentially you shouldnt be able to jump in the middle of 13 troopers and be 100% confident you will win the fight.

    At present this is standard anakin.

    I think I've won about a third of the time as the ds over the last few days. Some frustrating losses to be sure, but not every time.
  • Tbh i just beat the clones twice. Once on kamino and once on naboo. Both occasions i played an absolute blinder as bossk.
  • Played two rounds of GA in Geonosis...It was interesting.

    I think the fact everyone knew that this map would make Anakin ***** unbearable convinced everyone to not screw around. We see a walker, we literally spray all sorts of firepower right in that direction.
  • Mate seriously. I reckon ive seen 4 out of 9 matches ive played won by robots.

    As I refuse to play as a droid tho that means I've lost to them sometimes.
  • GA on Kashyyyk was predictable both rounds......you can take 1 juggernaut but it's a miracle if you can take the other one.

    Seeing Anakin, yoda and various reinforcements/officers inside, it was pointless to try anything.

    Then Obi wan came along so i guess multi heroes before the final phase is still a thing.
    Don't click unless you want to know the truth....

    I dont moan about any other hero or villain.

    I dont complain that grievous can 2 shot my heroes cause he has high risk high reward. Grievous can be taken out easily with an officer.

    Anakin is very different

    Anakin can be taken out with the Commando Droid. All 3 melee hits and then a few shots. Plus, with the new buff coming, it'll be easier with them

    Alright, I've removed a staggering amount of posts in here, I made myself clear at the beginning of the thread. Tone it down with the childish arguments and bait they add Nothing to the discussion. There was essentially an entire page of just arguments. Cut it out.

    If this happens again the thread is getting locked.

    That's odd. Cuz most of my wins in this mode have been with DS. I won maybe 2-5 times as the Republic. Played maybe 9-14 times
  • Now that that’s all cleared, Atm Villans really needs some way to escape retribution.
