Lightsaber troopers concept

This is an idea I've been thinking of long before I joined the forums. I didn't post it at first because I thought I might get hated on (please no hate comments), but here are the ideas.

Lightsaber troopers have assault, heavy, officer and specialist classes just like regular troopers. They have the same sprint speed and jump height, but individual lightsaber trooper classes are:

Assault lightsaber trooper: The assault is supposed to be well-rounded, so I'll try to depict this.

Health: 100
Stamina: Attacking- 8 attacks
Stamina: Defending vs blaster: 300 deflected damage
Stamina: Defending vs melee: 8 deflected attacks
Swing speed: 1.95-2.1 swings per second
Stamina regen delay and speed: 1 second delay, 3 seconds until full
Lightsaber damage: 40 (front), 70 (rear)
Deflect accuracy: 0.45 degrees
Dodges: 2

Ability 1: Versatility
Description: The trooper can constantly regenerate stamina for a limited period of time.
Ability 2: Agile
Description: Similar to the existing vanguard, this increases the trooper's sprint speed for a limited time.
Ability 3: Thermal detonator
Description: You guys know, I just wanted to keep this because I thought it suited the assault's playstyle.

Heavy lightsaber trooper: The heavy is supposed to excel in close-quarters situations, so I'll try to depict this.

Health: 120
Stamina: Attacking- 12 attacks
Stamina: Defending vs blaster: 250 deflected damage
Stamina: Defending vs melee: 10 deflected attacks
Stamina regen delay and speed: 2 seconds delay, 3.5 seconds until full
Swing speed: 2.15-2.4 swings per second
Lightsaber damage: 50 (front), 80 (rear)
Deflect accuracy: 0.7 degrees
Dodges: 1 with a 50% increased cooldown

Ability 1: Tough
Description: The trooper can gain 100 health for a limited period of time.
Ability 2: Relentless
Description: All stamina costs are halved for a limited time.
Ability 3: Impact grenade
Description: You guys know, I just wanted to keep this because I thought it suited the heavy's playstyle.

Officer lightsaber trooper: The officer is supposed to excel at buffing teammates, so I'll try to depict this.

Health: 100
Stamina: Attacking- 8 attacks
Stamina: Defending vs blaster: 200 deflected damage
Stamina: Defending vs melee: 7 deflected attacks
Stamina regen delay and speed: 1 second delay, 1.75 seconds until full
Swing speed: 2-2.2 swings per second
Lightsaber damage: 40 (front), 70 (rear)
Deflect accuracy: 0.45 degrees
Dodges: 2

Ability 1: Supporter
Description: All lightsaber troopers/heroes in the vicinity have their stamina costs halved for a limited time and blaster troopers/heroes in the vicinity have their damage doubled for a limited time.
Ability 2: Helper
Description: All players in the vicinity are given 50% damage reduction for a limited time.
Ability 3: Battle command
Description: You guys know, I just wanted to keep this because I thought it suited the officer's playstyle.

Specialist lightsaber trooper: The specialist is supposed to excel at long range, so I'll try to depict this.

Health: 100
Stamina: Attacking- 9attacks
Stamina: Defending vs blaster: 450 deflected damage
Stamina: Defending vs melee: 12 deflected attacks
Stamina regen delay and speed: 2 seconds delay, 2.5 seconds until full
Swing speed: 1.67-1.9 swings per second
Lightsaber damage: 30 (front), 60 (rear)
Deflect accuracy: 0.3 degrees
Dodges: 3 with a 30% reduced cooldown

Ability 1: Ranged
Description: The trooper's lunging range is increased for a limited time.
Ability 2: Deflection finesse
Description: All deflect stamina costs are halved until the trooper runs out of stamina.
Ability 3: Thermal vision
Description: You guys know, I just wanted to keep this because I thought it suited the specialist's playstyle.

    LMAO i agree, every character must be light saber only! No more guns
    Tactical, competitive 4v4 saber wielding, block holding,dashing only;God!
    When I'm not competition asf in PUGS then i'm being a trooper only gamer; because non-troopers are for fluoride toothpaste using, vaccinated neeewwwbs! I only drink the coldest of non-regular Mountain dew. Someone pass me a cold code red.
  • Ok! Glad to see you like the idea!
  • I really hate you didn't post this earlier.

    I think it is an interesting concept to have a map with a massive lightsaber battle.
  • @ToadHallMayhem I agree, just that since saber heroes are better than blaster heroes, I just hope saber troopers aren't too good or people may hate on sabers in battlefront.

    I think it's a great idea, that way everyone can become "COMPETITIVE" and "TACTICAL" with all the blocking mechanics.

  • Yeah. I agree @UnacceptablePain. Saber troopers would be great (DICE plz)
  • If not regular troopers, jedi/sith reinforcements. Think commando droid melee attacks and no blaster, but an ability to block.

    Exactly and maybe they add a new playlist for competitive players like myself where you play as a se-44c trooper (to make load outs fair) and then can upgrade to only light saber heros or AT-ST'S and likewise.

  • I totally think that lightsaber troopers would be great for those who feel they can't play lightsaber heroes enough
  • I totally think that lightsaber troopers would be great for those who feel they can't play lightsaber heroes enough

    I would kind of like AT-ST troopers as well. Maybe their main abilitiy is to call in a AT-ST, left ability calls in another AT-ST for a friend and right ability calls in a third backup AT-ST. #TroopersMatter #IhateTierUnits.

    @UnacceptablePain I suggest you create a separate thread about that, remember this thread is about lightsaber troopers.

    Indeed that is truly and ideal idea.

  • I am going now guys (I'm GMT in England and it's getting very late here) so I'm logging out now and going to bed quite soon. You guys (and your friends if they see this thread) can discuss the concept for the night. Bye!

    Yeah but can each trooper have a mini retribution too? You gotta have at least one force ability. Also I love the idea of being able to call in backup at-st's but that's thinking to small scale HB if you could call in backup at-at's. That would be sick. Maybe the rebels could call in a backup tauntauns and the Droid announcer from hvv makes some really silly comments about it. You guys really got some solid ideas here. 🔥

    Good. Maybe they could, but I am sure people want traditional blaster troopers to be balanced.
  • I love the idea! Kinda like an Old Republic thing? But maybe like a reinforcement for normal play.
    Imperial - Purge Trooper
    Rebel - Lasat Laser Honor Guard (Zeb Orrelios from Star Wars Rebels)
    Republic - Maybe DICE could get creative and make p some kind of Clone Assassin maybe?
    Seperatists - Magna Guard
    First Order - That Baton trooper from Force Awakens
    Resistance - Again they could get creative and make like a vibro-axe, wielding, guy?


    Your idea is wonderful for like an Old Republic type era gamemode thing, but for normal play they would be OP. But the idea is cool. Thanks.
    Yeah, you know who I am...
  • Can appreciate the time and effort put into this, but lightsaber troopers? Oh god no. Could only possibly work in one era for one faction. Would look quite ridiculous to see this in GA on OT and ST maps.

  • Niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice then everyone can feel the saberlord coursing through their veins

    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. . . 

    he was the beat of her heart and he was the motion of her lips. He was her soft words as though she spoke a prayer to the stars— I love you, Anakin. In life, and in death, we will always be one. I am yours
