Are they seriously buffing boba and nerfing vader?

Well i heard some where that they are nurfing vader and buffing boba's rocket damage. Shouldn't it be the other way around, i mean people have been asking for them buff for vader's choke, for like ever, and buffing boba's rocket damage!! No thank you, boba should be getting a nerf and vader a buff. What are people thinking, i've seen people asking for a buff to vader's choke in like, hundreds of posts and i've also seen a few posts about nerfing boba's rocket damage, so why are they doing the exact opposite?

  • They’re nerfing Barrage.
  • Vader's choke is the last thing that needs to be buffed, and could use nerfs more than anything, except in terms of Trooper damage which should be buffed

    I am Darth Vader, he said within himself.

    The dragon tried again to whisper of failure, and weakness, and inevitable death, but with one hand he caught it, crushed away it’s voice; It tried to rise then, to strike

    But the Sith Lord laid his other hand upon it and broke its power with a single effortless twist

    I am Darth Vader, he repeated as he ground the dragon’s corpse to dust beneath his mental heel. And you- You are nothing at all.

    He had become, finally, what they had all called him:

    The Hero With No Fear.

    I thought they were buffing it, cause that's what i heard. What i read is that they are giving barrage an extra damage increase, if the enemy is in a certain area of effect, and vader, i don't know what they're nerfing.

    Yeah, that's what i'm saying. Choke literally does almost no damage to troopers, it may be annoying against vader in HvV, but in GA it is just a good way to get yourself killed, especially since the choke ability takes so long and does so little damage to troopers.

    Agreed. I wrote a topic on Vader's choke buffs for GA. Be nice to see it oneshot even heavies. But otherwise nerfed in terms of Hero damage

    Agreed, and that's what i'm saying. I've seen a lot more posts about buffing choke instead of nerfing it, so why are they doing the opposite, that is the question.

    Intense Barrage is being tweaked. It will no longer give 4 extra rockets (technically 3). It will now reduce the cooldown of the next Barrage if the current Barrage deals 500+ damage.

    Anti-Hero Rockets are being tweaked so that the bonus damage only applies to the inner radius.

    Nerfs all around.

    Why did they turn a powerful Jedi Knight like Yoda that only needed a few tweaks in specific areas into the Furious Kermit by nerfing the wrong things entirely?

    I don't think that's entirely accurate. I've not seen anything regarding the number of rockets being nerfed, only that it will have increased cool down if you deal more than 500 damage. The only purpose of the card is to increase the number of rockets fired. If the dev team eliminated the additional rockets AND added an increased cool down, no one would use the card. All penalty, no reward.

    Think about it this way: GG has a card that increases his damage output, but the balance is that it decreases his stamina. If the dev team wanted to further "balance" it by removing the damage output buff AND increasing the stamina penalty, would you use it?

    That’s what the patch notes stated.

    Intense won’t increase the rockets shot in each salvo. Instead, the card will give you a shorter cooldown for the next Barrage, if you meet a requirement (500 damage).

    The whole point of the Boba nerfs was to reduce the damage of Barrage - removing the bonus rockets from Intense was an easy way for them to do this.

    Thank you for the clarification, I appreciate it. Would be nice if the dev team could respond here, on the OFFICIAL FORUMS, with this info. I'm glad the community is looking out for each other.

    That being said, Boba's Triple Rocket kill is the last milestone I need to achieve, wondering how I'm ever going to get it at this point after all the nerfs. Hopefully they buff the damage output of the individual rockets (I think it's 75 per right now). If not, the card will still be useless, as 5x75 = 375. No way you're getting 500 to initiate the shorter cool down. Most likely going to have to wait until we get an OT Coop map. Grrrrrr.

    He means from full health - it does less than 150 damage
  • I can't believe this.........WTF....,.who's requesting these constant Nerfs or Buffs ffs?????? This is insane......



    Scrap the whole game,......... Just make a better one. FML.


    Ever notice how rare Finn is used??????? Wonder why??????

    Ever notice how if all players are equally good the Dark side will win Every Time...........leave the Dark side. Buff the light then call it a day. Add an Air character to match Bobba...

    Vader isn't OP. He's Slow.......that's the trade off. Hans gun is powerful but slow. Landos gun is fast but less powerful. Leias gun has secondary fire but slow and not accurate. Luke has speed but less power. Christ every character has different strength and weakenssess. Deal with it......the important thing is to be aware of each character strength and weakness and put your team together based on map and strategy............but we cant do this coz we cant communicate with eachother........so its a random ***** where noobs pick the aggressice characters and run away. .


    This game is a joke

    I have never killed any infantry with Vader's choke, it only gives like, 30% damage or so, and that sucks.

    What does REY have?

    [/quote]


    Rey Is Awesome and Deadly in the right hands, If you know how to use her Mind trick. All other characters can be Blocked and Countered, but Mind Trick will Ferk you Up everytime if you know how to take full advantage of it. Same with Dark Side using Palp's Vader, Ren.

    I didn't miss her off the list. I didn't really mean to add all the other characters. Notice I didn't mention Yoda or Chewy either. I wasn't specifically mentioning the Light Side on purpose.

    It was a General point about the Constant Nerfing or Buffing. This is Truly Ridiculous...........Patches and Updates and changes to character power ups...............Bugs, Glitches, can't walk over a Rock or past a table without getting stuck. all the time and effort has gone into pretty clothing and scenery. Gameplay is an afterthought.


    Also, ANY Hero or Villain needs to One Shot Infantry either pistol or Saber.


    This game isn't for Kids people. It's Simulating Murder, Killing, Guns and Lightsabers. You keep altering the game for whom exactly? Kids complaining it's Too Hard???????????????? THEY SHOULDN'T BE PLAYING IT. It should be cert 15!!!

    This game would be Amazing with Team Chat. Large Squads of 8 players could go against other squads of 8 players in GA. It would be Awesome.


    I want this to be like Battlefeld 4. I clearly want to much! :(

    Finn: Can give entire chunks of the team 50% damage reduction, 120 bonus health, unlimited blaster heat, and faster cooldowns along with a stealth ability, a temporary aimbot ability, and cards to increase the effectiveness of his team buff. Sure sounds underpowered to me! (sarcasm). A lot of people sleep on Finn for not having a knockdown or for having a slightly awkward gun, but his support is unrivaled to the point that they had to nerf how it interacts with Yoda's health buff.

    Just saying.[/quote]


    Jus sayin back at ya. Yeah i use finn a lot. For exactly what you point out above. Buuuuut. If the other 3 on your HvV don't know that, can't see the potential in Sticking Close coz you can't talk to the dumb bastuards, then it's for naught and you find yourself at the back of the class.

    You have the potential to dodge or evade and attack as Luke, for instance, even if 3 or 4 Vill's come at you. You can't do that with Fin, Leia, Han or Lando. you're screwed.

    Finn is ace at Support. Remarkable even, but only if your Team is aware of it and know how to Capitalise on his presence.
