Content Restricting Event

Taking away half the heroes in a mode is an event now. I really don't understand this, can we just have no event? The game would literally have more content without it.

Also to consider this game's saber combat as "Elegant" is quite laughable. Not as laughable as the fact that full saber teams are already extremely common.

Seriously, why does this developer team think that things, like taking away 75% of the maps and taking 50% of the heroes away, are Events?

    What will you do with no Nina for a weekend?

    Elegant being laughable isn't even close, I can't think of the proper adjective.

  • Did they really describe their saber combat as elegant? LMFAO.

    They seriously just confirmed that they don’t even play the game they ‘work’ for, let alone make bug fixes for. Yikes

    IDK. Might be nice to have a weekend where I am not getting shot in the back from halfway across the map. 

    No Chewie. No Iden. No Han. No Boba. I think I can handle that for a weekend too.
    I wasn't sold before, but when you put it that way, that sounds divine. :D

    We should receive a only trooper event
    I think the saber heroes only event is strictly for HvV. But yeah a trooper only event would be really cool

    It's no big deal. And I'm sure they'll test out a blasters‐only heroes HvV at some point. Will be interesting to see how they play out.

    Most matches are nothing by saber heroes anyway.

    Not play, making the game unenjoyable seems to be the goal of these events.

    It's only one weekend relax
    So?

  • Would love to see blaster heroes only and all sabers taken away for once, can only imagine how that would change the game’s dynamic.
  • “It’s only for one weekend”

    That’s what I thought too about Heroes Unleashed, now it’s EVERY month. It will only get worse.
    Wasn't there a 3-5 month break between the last two?

    This event is freaking stupid. All saber lineups are very common so the fact they thought it was a good idea to make that a event is funny lol. I haven't seen a all blaster line up in 2 years lol should've did that
  • Just stop with these dumb unimaginative events. Most of them makes no sense.

    I played a match with randoms a couple of weeks back as LS. Me and 2 of the team chose blasters, the last person had picked Luke. They must have seen we were all blasters and changed at the last minute, so we had all blasters. We absolutely wrecked the opposition, a lot of it was down to the Han player tbf (not me) but it was so much fun.

    BTW completely agree saber only event is pointless. Would love to see a blasters only event. 
  • This was a weird choice for sure. 6v6 would be better.

    Well, @Empire_TW , you're right.

    But I don't care because this will be the first event that I'll actually like.  Good luck, opponents.

    Its just a weekend, play a different game mode for that weekend, or do something with your weekend that doesnt include playing the game, its not that deep. Theres many people asking for content restricting events such as a troopers only weekend for cs. Theres also people that ask for less heroes at the end of ga matches and now we are getfing heroes unleashes, i doubt they are very happy about that. Theres always going to be someone that dislikes and someone that likes each thing they do, its just a weekend stop complaining. I personally like the idea of sabers only, i dont even think it makes sense canonically to make blasters be able to fight saber heroes and be balanced with them in the first place, any saber hero would beat any blaster hero 9/10 times so in my eyes heroes should mostly be lightsabers anyway and just have some blasters to change it up with gameplay. 
  • Saber combat is a hot mess with block not working, dodge not working, spamming of de lasersword that teleported the enemy to you & vice versa, & you can ignore abilities by spamming. Not to mention all saber lineups are extremely common how they thought this was a good event when it's pretty much a event already is beyond me.

    Compared to the saber squad, yeah. How is Bossk not balanced?
  • Could care less, it’s just for a weekend. HvV is a low quality mode anyway. Sabers only for a few days? Sure, why not...  I’m in. 
    Low quality, that’s a positive for the mode at this point.

    Look it is just a weekend event, and it is a play on the words from Obi-Wan to Luke.  It is a theme, roll with it.  I think the only people who are truly upset are the mouse and keyboard players who like to roll and land head shots.  For an entire weekend their crutch it taken away.

    You people say that taking away content is bad, yet many of trooperlords ask for a no hero event. So much hypocrisy.
    I've never asked for no hero events, go troll a different thread

    I don't get this "its just a weekend" mentality, why should I accept that parts of this already stale game are being taken away? I don't like HU, "don't play" I don't like ridiculous BP cost decreases "don't play". I just want to play the game normally but just about every weekend now is some event that alters the game in a negative way.

  • Agree OP. Most HvV are 7 sabers and 1 blaster anyways

    Sometimes that one blaster isn't there. When I play most times I'm the only blaster, when I'm playing by myself there is the occasional good Han on the other team.

    Me and him have the intense fights while all the sabers just spam each other
