The way to know when Anakin is properly balanced

I will consider Anakin properly balanced the first time I go into an HvV game and see that he’s not chosen.

I think that will be a good litmus test. Even when Chewie was at his most powerful, you’d still see regular matches with him on the bench. Haven’t seen a game in any mode without Anakin in two months.

  • It’s near impossible to get Anakin he is always chosen first, I’ve been trying since he came to the game without success!!! HVV. ,even after the fourth coming nerf he will still be first taken

    So long as Retribution exists, even if they'd nerf the damage on it again, he'd still be the prime saberpick. They ensured that when they gave him a superpull and a breakblock strike.

    Iron enigma treateth, Ultima
    Shielding light retreateth, Ultima
    Hydaelyn defeated. Ah, Ultima


    The fact is that if you're running it's because you suck, and the game shouldn't pander to players who suck.

    I'll consider him balanced (in HvV) when he doesn't consistently score 10-15k higher than everyone else atop the leader board after a HvV match.

    EDIT: I don't think nerfing Anakin will necessarily bring him into balance. The other heroes & villains need an assortment of buffs and tweaks to make them more capable of matching him.
  • He’ll always be picked. He has functional abilities, good health and regen, a block break, and very good cards. There’s no reason to pick any other saber over Anakin, Ever. his abilities are well built.

    That Specialist rework was disappointing.

    Unless they buff everyone to a point where all the heroes are on equal footing. But that isn't terribly likely.
    Heroes are born on the battlefront... especially if you play the objective.

    Well built? Mote like too good and powerful right
    My priority list:

    1. Fix Split screen mode bugs
    2. Fix bugs
    3. Bigger play area for Duel mode
    4. More love for Starfighter modes
    5. First Person only mode

    No, well built abilities you joker, all his abilities are better than the ones they were built on, and all flow together beautifully. Even if you nerfed his pull to no damage, made passionate strike not knock down, he’d still be better than other Sabers. He’s well built, unlike other heroes of his kind.

    Pretty much. They’d have to rework other heroes abilities, and make them as good as Anakin’s.

    Exactly. All of this is completely true. And it’s exactly why he’s unbalanced. There were 19 heroes before him that had weaknesses to counter their strengths. Sometimes people wouldn’t pick Vader or Chewie even through they were the strongest.

    They can buff other heroes a bit and give Anakin a major nerf. But until he has some kind of a weakness he will be unbalanced.
