    Teamwork is actually the most awarded tactic but nobody seems to realize that

    And now he felt her, really felt her in the Force; He felt a bond, deeper and more intimate than he’d ever had before; and for a precious eternal instant he was her. . .

    With that said, time for the dark side to get dominated.

    Yoda, Anakin, Luke, and Obi Wan (Or even glitched Rey with dash strike)

    VS

    Vader, Kylo, Dooku, and either that squishy red guy that hits like a feather or that ceramic battle droid

    Teamwork or not, delivering end or receiving end, saber spam is more than viable whenever players don't go up against the elite. I'm laughing at just how easy killing good hero players are at the moment when I can be playing.

    EDIT - I was referring to a lot of different 1v1 or 2v1 situations featuring players among various skill levels, not teamwork.
    Man! Could this game get any more broken?

    That is definitely true. I can't relate as well to lone players since my team is pretty elite. But yeah, spamming has definitely increased and became a meta choice when facing someone down with a teammate with you, since you'll almost always magnetize to most dashes and get hits or drain stamina.

    1v1's are . . . okay as ever currently. It's still easy as pie to run through a spammy player. Spammers always die in 1v1s. Just dash forward instead of backward now.

    2v1's or more have become nearly impossible to even survive. I just recently made a topic about attack improvements based on this.

    Sort it out and if difficulties due to resources or finances find some way to make money with season pass or purchases, because free content, whilst a good gesture, sure as hell doesn't seem to be benefiting us or you in the long run.

    I was always be of the opinion, if it helps to fix more bugs, I would pay for each new character or map. So I can decide by myself if I need this or not. I never unlocked Landos Falcon by the way and I dont regret it.
    I don't need this, so if its optional, I would really like to play for it, if and only if the bugs get fixed.

    I think the request was, that we have a force user/lightsaber user mode only. Something like a duell mode for this kind of characters. I really hate that blaster users are that powerful in HvV, because this is not authentic and if no one would choose them if they are authentic, a lot of players think it might be good to have a duell mode without blaster users.
    Blocking force powers by rolling is really ridiculous and only some sort of balancing thing.

    By the way in my opinion 4vs4 is a bit too much for HvV. 3vs3 or a 2vs2 HvV would be much better for a more strategic playstyle. In my opinion with this HS could be abolished. I personally like HS with 2vs2 matches more , but I would like to see it more like HvV. Maybe 10-15 kills each team and all characters are always available.

    I played HvV 2vs2 already and it was really much more fun than with 4vs4.
  • Just played one round. oh man ... This is going to be a weekend to remember. Absolute randomness. I have never been killed by someone right after i threw them away with Mauls choke - but now Luke manage to get me while still in animation and him in the air...

    And Reys and Kenobis nuclear anti-stamina strike. :# Prepare to be rolled over DS.

    So Rey's sprint attack and Obi-Wan's last strike with defensive rush draining your stamina fully if you block was brought to us with the August Update and is new in the game?
    Can you confirm this?

    I can add to Sad_History,

    That absolutely happens now in the update. Try it out when going up against Rey or Obi. Multiple users know about the issue on here, it doesn't even have to warrant for video proof.

    Don’t ever do a “Certain Heroes Only” event please. Me and a crap ton of others aren’t amused.
  • This is a horrible idea in the first place, but now with the saber combat hitting rock bottom, it is at least pointing out the fact that this aspect of the game needs serious attention
  • For the rest of the weekend, I’m just doing GA

    Will they be in a chest, or are they automatically unlocked when you log in some other way?

    Because I don't see anything except for Kenobi's "Maul" voice-line, which I got in the event. I don't have any chests to open and I don't have any of the other event voice-lines or victory poses.

    Edit: It is all unlocked now.

    Will this be the only opportunity to get the Summer Community Quest items or will they be available sporadically?

  • “Additionally, for those who weren't able to get them, all of the Summer Community Quest voice lines and victory poses can be unlocked again this weekend from August 30 to September 1st.” Unfortunately i missed everything haha. It’s 4:30 AM Aug 30, I don’t see the summer emotes and victory poses for Yoda grievous Maul or Obi-wan, they all disappeared. Beforehand you could see them. Do we buy or do a event to retrieve them? Any clarification would be highly appreciated! @T0TALfps
  • I just want this event to be over :s Surprised they didn’t cancel it with what’s happened.

    There was an issue that had prevented the rollout of the rewards, this has now been corrected and you should be able to gain all the Community Quest rewards simply by logging into the game at some point during this weekend. The rewards will be visible in your collections tab.

    Sorry for the delay in response to this!

    Ok i logged in it fixed it for me thanks for the bug fix
