Remove air recovery of Boba Fett

  • If they take away air recovery, Boba is gonna be a free kill for Anakin, and a free kill for Luke, Obi, and Yoda on any map with ledges.
    It's a horrible Idea, and I'm puzzled why it's even being discussed. SMH

    That’s how all the other characters work. Boba’s already got the advantage of mobility. If you’re dumb enough to hover near a ledge when Luke’s in front of you, you deserve to take the punishment.

    Making Roll work again and hard nerfing Vader, Palpatine, and Grievous would go a long way.

    I would have to agree.

    They don't need to nerf the sith lords......they just need to buff the blaster heroes.

    Hopefully they don't listen to you guys AT ALL!

    Because some want more free kills. They say that is how it 'works'. Why have to rely on strategy, when you can push one button?

    The LS wants more free kills? In HvV? Sorry but are you dim? The DS has so many button press no skill abilities it’s ridiculous. If the LS had a mirror this would be a different discussion.

    Yet here we are.

    You yourself are talking about how the ds has so many one button abilities and the LS is outmatched. It certainly sounds like you are arguing that the LS needs to be able to one button kill Fett. For balance of course.

    Another solution favored by others and myself, is to buff the lacking LS heroes to be able to more easily counter an annoying Fett flying around.

    One button kills are ridiculous. Although it is most often one button that leads into a devastating combo. I do not think the solution is to simply add another one.

    I assure you I am not 'dim'.

    The thing is: the DS is designed to be braindead. Boba is just the nail in the coffin which is filled with perfect palpatine, vvonderful vador and generic grievance, ideal Versio and ofc capitalist phasma.

    The fact that saber users can't run up and smash boba like every other character is not a problem. People think: "Why can't I R2 spam Boba to death! It's unfair!" In a 1v1 there is literally nothing boba can do to a lightsaber user either, unless the saber user is dumb and hell bent on saber smashing boba and chases him while getting shot. Why should saber users get to kill everyone easily if they aren't just as easy to kill? As a saber, just play defensively with Boba - be a Jedi, use patience, and wait for your moments. Or how about we take away Boba's air recovery and then also take away saber users block to be fair? Use a blaster and kill him quickly if he bothers you.

    Air recovery was asked for for over a year and finally came. It makes sense that he can recover since he has a jetpack. It's been here for about a year now. Get used to it ;)

    Boba was never an easy kill until anakin came & even then air dodges would have been enough. His air recovery is a stupid get out of jail feature. Boba has always been untouchable then when anakin came he got grounded. All he needed was dodges mid air nothing else. He didn't recover when han hit him did he. His jet pack doesnt stop working when he's hit with a lightsaber from behind does it? All he needed was immunity from explosives shot like 2015.
    Its even easier with chewy......

    Chewy bowcaster with overheat demolishes boba and knocks him out the sky. Then stun him on the ground and finish him.

    (Watch @ 3:38, 4:28, & 7:12 )

    Apologies about the bad editing. I was quickly trying to get it loaded to youtube and off my PS4. It's from months ago.

    Actually you only have to get the majority of the shots on Boba without overheat activated to knock him out the sky too. I find going vertical with the aimer works well. Video above @7:12 shows this

    Here's another.

    It's pretty obvious that boba was bad in the 1st video & the 2nd video the opposing team had 2 elims at the most. Upload when you aren't going against garbage

    Please I've done this numerous times against GOOD and BAD boba's......yeah you need your teammates to cover you to get it to work most effectively but you can say the same about any character. HvV requires teamwork period......I failing to see any kind of point your trying to make!

    Please boba wasn't even a problem back when people were complaining he was OP........chewy could still destroy him then too because chewy was also more op then too.

    Teamwork is quite hard to do without In Game Chat

    True.........but if you are experienced even slightly in this game you know that sometimes you need to regroup with teammates instead of charging in to take the enemy on again by yourself.

    TEAMWORK is the name of the game in HvV, PERIOD!

    So the solution is the buff the LS Heroes in ways that can counter the DS. Specifically the heroes that are currently subpar. It is quite possible to do.
  • If your a better more experienced player, playing with new people......then you should know by now that you have to sacrifice taking the enemy on by yourself and sometimes you have to guard and run around protecting your teammates.

    Experienced people can still work with their teammates effectively without mics. I DO THIS ALL THE TIME when playing HvV solo because I have learned to play around everyone else's skills, failures, weaknesses and shift characters to balance the team out. This is how you win HvV more often when joining HvV games SOLO.

    Yes mics would really help out, but sometimes they just hinder. Experienced players can really learn a lot about a another player within the first few minutes of playing against or with them to know their play style and how to work with them or combat their tactics.

    Dice will never add mics to the game because of cursing and toxic behavior and because Star Wars is now owned by PC Disney Corp. It would be more effective if Dice displayed fellow teammates ranks for the character they have selected, so that I know right off the bat before we start playing where these people are at in terms of skill level with the character they are playing. I learn it if i die eventually about the enemy players, but I never really know it about my teammates. I can roughly figure it out after they have died a few times, which is complete nonsense!

    The game should also give xp for sticking close to fellow teammates. The more teammates you are closer too the more points you get. Another thing the game should do is give points for successfully blocking a lightsaber attack when a friendly blaster player is around. This way the game incentivizes blocking for the blaster heroes!


    Dice really needs to go through the game and update matchmaking
    Dice also needs to update the points system to incentive and give more xp for team plays and teamwork of new and various kinds:
    • I give examples like chewy and the wookie warriors when in close proximity to each other should gain more xp when working together.
    • Samething with bossk and the B2 enforcers.
    • Bossk and chewy both need some improvements and giving more experience to fellow teammates to work with these blaster characters could be a really cool buff and new mechanic added to the game to improve and change game play up.
    • Similar things could be done with other character combinations.......chewy and han, chewy and lando, lando-han, lando-leia, leia and officers, han and assault, Iden and Phasma, Bossk and Phasma, Iden and Bossk.
    • Phasma and flame troopers
    • Iden and specialist

    Again just some ideas as to what I am suggesting.

    It's sad that I miss this Boba...

    "I felt there was a large amount of human chauvinism... also I felt very bad that at the end the Wookie didn't get a medal also... oh, all the people got medals but the Wookie who had been in there fighting all the time, didn't get any medal, and I thought that was an example of Anti-Wookie discrimination." - Carl Sagan on the subject of Star Wars

    That Boba was almost perfect.
    -Blaster worthy of a master Bounty Hunter? Check.
    -Aim down sights? Check.
    -Jetpack for repositioning and emergencies? Check
    -No useless abilities? Check.
    -Counter to Sabers (Luke)? Check.
    -Not annoying as *****? Check.

    There’s this skill called dodge that prevents those ring out deaths, not to mention the fact that you can simply hover above a platform or pelt people from a distance. There’s no reason one should be untouchable for half of the heroes.

    Someone else in another thread said give it to Leia has a buff!
  • Recovery should only kick after 3.5 seconds, so it can only be used in rare occasions where you can save yourself from being pushed off ledges.
    3.5 secs is not enough to recover from anything else the lightside throws at you.

    This would also work, make the recovery window longer so you can’t just ignore everything. Then buff him for GA play and change his star cards and he becomes better in GA and not nearly as annoying in HvV

    Yeah i mean DICE always goes into extremes when buffing or nerfing things. They should find a middle ground. Take Obi Wan's RMT. They should have changed it so that when used, dodge cooldowns are reduced by 70%, and not remove that part of the ability completely. Enemies would still be able to dodge, but not as often. This way it made it pretty much useless.

    I had a feeling this would rear it's head at some point.
    We're talking about balancing a video game. If we went by the movies, it would be ridiculous.

    But the go by the movies/lore with the bow caster bolts pass though lightsaber block. Bottomline you can't have it here and there. It has to be even across the board.

    So, if you’re flying right, and you see Anakin running toward you, and you know he’s gonna try to pull you, you wait for an animation, and then you press B, or Circle. You’ll see Boba move somewhat quickly either left or right. And Viola! You just avoided getting pulled by using some skill! Try it out, it works nearly every time if you time it, which isn’t hard.

    Wow man, that's totally cool. It reminds me of this one time Boba kept shooting at my team, so I picked Han and I shot Boba a bunch of times by aiming real good! And Viola! Boba died, Give it a try, it works nearly every time if you can aim, which isn't hard.

    Air dodge or don't fly where there is no ground.

    id have to agree there, every blaster user and palpatine are completely helpless to being thrown from ledges

    playing Boba you cannot use an advantage as a disadvantage.... you can literally fly where no one can traverse... and yet complain that you're getting knocked out of the area...... position yourself accordingly


    and why they haven't implemented diminishing returns or small immunity cooldowns on CC effects yet idk, just to save the rag dolling...

    half the time idk wtf happend i was pushed then pulled then pushed and helicoptered around and come out of it with 15% HP from full health open to a free swing.

    how bout u get affected by any cc effect at all, you're immune for 3 seconds, which would just about last until you got up...... it would make for a more dynamic use of skills/abilities than the currently rewarded entire team spamming their low cooldown abilities all at once and if my console didn't crash i never stood a chance.

  • ok, so i dont have thousands of hours IG, tho my time is extensive...and perhaps i never meet the "good" boba people talk about..ok so not never but not often...in my experience...boba is a pest that you ignore till he pesters you too far and he gets swatted. Chewy destroys him, idc what ppl say, han destroys him, ani destroys him, luke destroys him, lando destroys him....and even taking skill, like your the best boba, well im talking about the best...those heroes..all capable of sending boba back to spawn...hes weak, needs better cards.

    They nerfed the roket barrage to oblivion and buffed him with air recovery after Anaking came to the game cause every Anakin pull was a guaranteed Bobba kill. Same reason why they gave Maul a block.

    What a load of manure. I've seen Boba's being pulled by Anakin's, they mid-air recover and then fly away without ever touching the ground nor coming in range of any saber hero's abilities. So what you are saying is mostly a steaming pile of manure

    yea i dont get what he's implying,
    i mean Kylo pulls a blaster user and gets a free swing, then can freeze and free swing on their back, then frenzy after their roll to instantly close the gap.

    at least boba can fly off after getting off the ground, LS blasters have to roll around in circles wondering how kylo is 360 degree tracking me thru my roll and hitting me before ive even come out of it.

    Boba is not a free kill for anakin if u stay out of his pull range, which, having a jetpack on your back should make it pretty damn easy. if u get caught off guard then ur gonna be hurting.. LIKE EVERY OTHER CLASS

    I mean does anakin not strongly counter Iden? and Bossk?
    run up to Iden and pop heroic might to be immune to droid stun... and spam saber
    same with bossk, jump in, pop heroic might before mines go off, eat no damage and smoke that lizard.

    and ill speak for myself only, but on console as a blaster user i have a VERY hard time hitting boba in the air, and chewie is a sad version of his former self.
