How about to add block ability for Palpatine, it's shall looks like Yoda's block animation , because in 1v1 in closes areas our Palp can not do anything against others Jedi and it's so painfully .

    My idea was, that he gets a block for blaster fire and lightsaber strikes like he had in SWBF1 2015. Watch YouTube clips for this.

    Sure, make an OP hero even more OP. Makes sense. 
    Of course with a block he must get a tweak for a nerf. I know myself how annyoing he can be. the same like most blaster users in HvV and Boba too.
    So with a blocks comes a tweak.

    His level of evasiveness and maneuverability in this game is too good for me to get on board with adding a block.

    Gosh, all these “give Palpatine a block” threads that are popping up lately are making me feel scared that the Devs could actually consider it a thing

    All blaster users have to problem to hit him while spin dodging. Dodging to block force powers is nothing to trust on, because this is not working that good and dodging while hit by a lightsaber strike seems to grant him only 20% of damage reduction.
    A full block with some tweaks is a better and more authentic way for Sidious. I dont like the image of a bouncing old man. Maybe one spin dodge is enough for him. Remeber saying Maul and Yoda don't need a block the first is fast enough and the latter is small enough and now with their blocks everybody say its great, even Yoda's lightsaber block is really buggy.
    As I said a block with Sidious to make him stronger against blaster users and make him more authentic and then of course some tweaks are needed, just as I said only one spin dodge in a row for example.
    By the way Sidious electrocute is almost useless for him in HvV!!! Dealing no damage, only shocking the enemy and that for only 1s. This should be tweaked too. And maybe his stamina drain much faster if he uses lighting midair. With a block this could make him a more "static" object and not a bouncing ball.
    Greetings.
  • in the corridors or narrow spaces palpatine can do nothing against a good player with the Jedi or any blaster hero
  • Shouldn't the most powerful Sith Lord be OP anyways? 
  • Dont be stupid that the most powerful Force user ever gets a block.

    EA and Star Wars is like Disney and Star Wars.
    Both understand Star Wars at all.
    Shouldn't the most powerful Sith Lord be OP anyways? 

    He should be one of the best villain in HvV, but he need not to be op.
    Anakin's nerf makes him not the strongest hero (light side) anymore, in my opinion, and this is fine.
    Yoda should be the best hero in HvV, but he is one of the weakest light side force user besides Obi-Wan in the game. He is really weak in 1vs1 against a lot of villains and he is really in need of a regular HoK card in HvV.
    Greetings.
  • How about get his lightning attacks working properly...

    If you if you meet a good player, then your quick movements will not help ... especially in narrow, closes spaces

    If you are a decent Palpy player, you won't go in narrow, close places. ;)

    Then he needs unlimited dodges and blaster damage reduction with it. There are a lot of good aimers on PC that makes it really hard for Sidious to stand against blaster users.

    Its not important in what area you are. Palpatine while dodge is a easy target for good aiming PC gamers!

    You just said, "especially in narrow, close spaces." and then "it's not important what area you are in." lol

    Maybe, you need a block but many others are fine with him as he is. If shooters keep killing you then change your tactics when they are in your match. I never have an issue with them and they're the easiest ones to take out. Sounds like a bit of user issue to me.

    If you take Palps into tight areas of the map you can't play him to his strengths.

    Many players wrote that Maul did not need a block because he was fast, his attacks reflected the blaster blah blah blah blah and other nonsense, while He was one of the weakest characters in the game. But after he received the block, playing for him became much more fun, and the game became more balanced. Likewise about Palpatine. Do you want to say that you need to be a super nerd to play for Palpatine without a block and choose special tactics for the game, moreover, carefully, while Lando or Khan will simply destroy you in most cases, both in open areas and in corridors without any problems?

    No, it is no argument for me that he is fast enough to dodge blaster fire!
    Sidious needs rework with a complete block.

    At least someone who knows what Star Wars is about.
    By the way I find Sidious is too much of a bouncing ball. This must be changed too, he is ridiculous in this way.

    Sidious is only good behind villains. His damage makes him get a lot of points in HvV, but in 1vs1 where he should be one of the best, he ist almost one of the weakest characters and this is for especially against blaster users.

    Sidious now is sometimes as annyoing as Boba, Bossk, Han, Iden,... . So some changes should be done. Make him not beeing such a bouncing ball and give him a block.
    Complete block and maybe no lightning midair or only for a short time or higher stamina drain for lightning midair. Make him not gliding while midair. Make him have a spin dodge every second dodge or 1 spin dodge with 2 dodges available.
    With this I guess Sidious is not that annoying character anymore. And of course he is, but he is definitly not authentic in the way he is now.
    Sidious should be ways stronger in duells than Vader and should be one of the best epic characters together with Yoda.
    This game mode and the whole game really lacks of Star Wars feeling. This is like The Last Jedi, that is more Spaceballs 2 than Star Wars.
    Greetings.
  • What bother me with Palpatine in the game is his lack of saber. I mean, in the moovies, he uses Force and Saber ! Why can't he uses his Saber here, and just be a flying lightning troll ?

    Just reduce his lightning power and flying power, but give him the possibility to use his saber in a balanced way.

    He doesn't use it in RotJ. That what counts. An Emperor is beyond childish play with toys.

    The scene in RotS is a disgrace. Stupid and meningless. It degrades both the Emperor and Yoda to fight a computer game fight on screen.
