Two issues mostly just 1 main issue.

2nd issue
• changed the description of anti hero rockets to starcard. Rocket barrage: rockets do increased damage at center of the explosions within a 1 meter radius.

This Would not be bad if it keeps the damage anti hero rockets gave. It just would do the bonus damage to everyone not just heros, but would be harder to aim since you would have to get enemies within 1 meter of the rocket explosions. At maxed out card it only does 10 extra damage if it is within that radius but with the intense barrage changed who cares?

Main issue
• changed the description of intense barrage star card to. If rocket barrage deals more than 500 damage to enemies for 1 activation, it’s cool down time is reduced for the next usage.

This sucks!

Intense barrage allowed players who equip that star card to fire off rockets faster and adds more rockets. Because the default firing speed for the rocket barrage isn’t good at all. It fires like 4 or 5 and with intense barrage it’s like 8-10 and they are fired off faster.
—If this change reduces cool down for next usage but also doesn’t change the rocket barrage speed and extra rockets that come with the intense barrage star card it won’t be bad. But if it removes what intense barrage star card gives to boba players just for a possibility of reduced cool down for one use. It just will Suck. I’m not happy. Boba was finally getting to a good place. And it has been ruined I’m upset about boba’s change highly.

((What baffles me is why his rocket barrage needed to be messed with before his concussion rocket in the first place if at all. Cause bobas concussion rocket is practically useless. It doesn’t disable blasters on default and does zero damage. Hardly concusses enemies cause you can still move pretty well and use abilities well. Short
Incremental damage like the stinger pistol that could be upgraded damage with a star card would a good buff for concussion rocket. ))

By removing intense barrage rocket rate of fire speed increase and extra rockets it suck. However if the speed of rockets that comes with intense barrage comes back and they just add the cool down for next use on top of it, I won’t complain. Although it didn’t need a cool down. Who cares about cool down reduction for the ability because without intense barrage the way it was with the extra rockets and rate of fire increase it sucks!!!

  • Boba Fett was already the weakest Villain in the game. He has the worst blaster, his concussion missile is useless, and he has wet napkin armor. His rockets were literally the only thing he had going for him. Taking those away is the final nail in the coffin. I can already kill him 1 on 1 with an assault or heavy because they have superior guns and equipment. Why pick Boba Fett in GA when you can pick a Jet Trooper? Why pick Boba Fett at all in HvsV?
  • Nerfing Boba?! Come on, guys. He’s already one of the toughest to do well with. Not saying it’s impossible. I’ve seen some do really well with him, and I have a few times myself, but let’s be honest: he’s seriously one of the weakest heroes in the game, especially in HvV, where I live.
    No nerfs, please! Quicker concussion rocket animation is the “buff” we get?! That is absolutely ridiculous. 😔👎🏻
    If the nerfs are absolutely necessary (they aren’t IMO), then how about at least making the concussion rockets actually have a worthwhile effect? Like totally blinding like Leia’s grenade? And making his blaster so that it can be aimed easier?
  • Wow do you guys read the fourms? Did you see the "Remove Boba from HvV thread?
    ezkfs3399nkr.jpg This isn't mine, Just thought it was cool

    Rule 39: Never say no to Bacta

    When you have been playing since launch Cool kid 8)

    I want to make a squad of 4 Commandos and then scream "FORM UP DELTA SQUAD"

    We need Delta Squad Commando skins.
  • We’re specifically discussing the nerfs just announced.

    I completely agree please don’t ruin the heros dice don’t take a step forward and then another backwards, please leave boba and vader alone.

    Only thing vader could do if you are gonna remove his damage reduction during force choke is change the force choke mechanic together so vader can still move during force choke, and block and could even throw his lightsaber and swing it while using force choke, just like in battlefront 2015.

    And please don’t ruin boba gets intense barrage leave as is. Just focus on improving his concussion rocket
  • What has happened? vader and boba not in a good place now, especially boba.

    1 step forward 1 step back with this game sometimes. I’ve stuck by since this games launch but I’m wondering was my patience worth it since they ruined my favorite hero after getting him to a ok place.

    That's it. I specifically play HvV to play boba in the little time I get to play this also you aren't competing with your own team for heroes like in GA. I'm erasing this game as I type this up as the game is no longer fun for me. Boba Fett is no longer feasible for use in any mode. This might sound drastic but I will not rely on a weak blaster as my primary tool while the only offensive ability Boba Fett has is too slow and produces low damage as a result. I've tried to tough it out but I just flat out can not till Boba Fett has been fixed. If anyone thinks it was bad before when boba would run I guarantee you all will hate it even more because that'll be the main option now. I know it and soon every boba user will too.
  • this so much.

    weakest damage of any hero
    weakest defense of any hero
    and now the worst star cards?

    please give boba a buff, I'm begging you dice, HvV is just lightsaber heroes now because why tf would you bother anymore? blaster heroes are already RIDICULOUSLY underpowered and boba is the weakest of them all. please please please fix
  • Absolutely ridiculous. Now Boba only barely skirts above Leia. I completely agree with everything you said, Dice needs to think before they apply these ***** nerfs.
    So this is how liberty dies... with thunderous applause.

    Leia can destroy Boba. Boba doesn't skirt above anyone. He is at the dead bottom by far. Assaults and Heavys are even superior to him.
