Droidekars way op

No effective counter to these. Seems unbalanced.

    Lightsabers work pretty well. The clone tank is pretty weak though and could use a buff imo. When i encounter them i have little respect for them as they rarely kill me.

    If 2 ppl shoot at them they go down easily. Not op at all. If anything they're defense doesn't hold up well enough against 2 or more.

    I have not found them to be op at all. They are better than the clone tanks but those tanks are pretty weak from what i have seen.

    Every trooper type has a weapon with ion shot (specialist has 2) and the assault type has the ion grenade which drops the shield in one hit, on contact, and does some damage to the droideka's health. Just gotta be smart about it
  • Droidekas are not OP at all, today i managed on CS to get 2 snipers flank, about 50m away. Scored many hits on 1 sniper how just rolled off the way and they just destroyed my shield and health like nothing. The shield HP could easy be double of the current couse there is allot of counters. And the blasters damage fallout range should be checked as well. Bit unreal to shoot a guy several times and survive, even any blaster can kill faster on that range.

    I wouldnt say OP, there are plenty of counters BUT they do seem to have splash damage. lightsaber blocks dont seem to block blaster damage from them

    First I think they shouldn't change they have good power but at times they can be destroyed. 

    The thing to combat them should be clone commando the Rebuplic needs a new troop to combat it.
  • I personally think there shield is a tad weak 
  • What server are you playin because that’s not my experience.  Droidikas are clumsy, hard to maneuver, easy to kill from behind, weak shields.

    There's a major bug with Droideka shields in that the ends of their blasters poking out of the shields cause the shields to be useless. This reminds me of when Iden's shield didn't work when the game first came out. I would pop the shield to try to run away and still get mowed down within seconds.

    Lightsaber users can block their shots, although they still take some damage. I remember playing as Obi-Wan and deflecting the droidekas shots back towards them, which got rid of the shield. Then that player just rolled away.
  • This entire game is the most unbalanced MP-game I've EVER played. And it's such a damn shame, since the gameplay is so smooth and the game so well optimized. But I'm deleting it because the content is too poor and unbalanced. GG, you could have made a great game, but then....
    i have no noticeable balance problems whatsoever in this game, not sure what you are complaining about
  • Assault ion grenade is the solution to so many annoyances in this game. Takes out heavy, driodeka, and sniper shields.  Wrecks speeders. Explodes turrets and if you're lucky anyone standing next to it. If you get behind an at st you can take it out solo. I never run without it. 
  • I have killed droidekas with all normal troopers.

    (1.) Close Range- Get in close and melee between the gun ports.
    (2.) Far Distance- Use an ion weapon to drop the shields from range.
    (3.) Mid-Range or Whenever- Shoot when they are rolling.
    (4.) Other Methods- Use Jump Trooper to drop shields with missile and don't stop firing.

    I drop them a lot, you just need a good strategy.

  • Dekas are a big target, and usualy they getting countered when you shoot out of the cover and go back again. They also very afraid of open spaces and loosing their suprise attack advantage.
    To the other news: most of the copmanies shares worth, that were specialising in construcing power converters are plummeting due to the closure of several stations that had been distributing them troughout the galaxy. Market analytics indicates that all of them were closed because of an apperant lack of demand for them on the galaxy market.

    Yep, not to mention they are very vulnerable from behind because they can't turn around fast when their shield is up.  You can blast the snot out of them and quickly drop those shields.

  • Droidekas aren’t OP. They have low damage output over long range and their shield isn’t terribly strong. Everything else in my opinion is ok with them.
  • They're ridiculously slow when not rolling, the damage dropoff from just a short distance is absurd and their shield is destroyed almost as soon as it's deployed. The only thing they do well is take command points/objectives pretty quickly and they can be deadly in close quarters against any trooper. They're weak: certainly not OP.

    They aren't actually OP in some cases hackers do use them but compared to the 2005 battlefront they are far from OP.
  • Droidekas aren't OP , to the contrary they are in the limit, a little less and they would be useless completely.

  • If anything droidekas are supposed to be OP?
