Please remove the bb droids from HvV

Prev13
Okay. So I stop playing battlefront 2 for a while been playing classic WoW. I started playing HvV again recently only to find out little soccer balls are more powerful than heroes and villains. That little shock thing or whatever sends your hero flying a lot farther than Han Solos shoulder charge. And I thought Han Solos shoulder charge was overpowered. Not to mention how fast the droids are and how hard it is to see them in the battlefield when you're already fighting others. The bb droids can easily kill a hero 1v1 and blaster heroes pretty much useless against them. I have a better chance of survival as a blaster against a lightsaber hero than the bb droids. The dumbest thing they could have done to HvV. Please remove these droids from HvV! I will stop playing again and go back to Classic WoW.

  • If anything just make the bb droids on the same caliber of special troopers and stuff in the other game modes. But they do not belong on the same level of combat as heroes and villains. That is absurd.
  • This is becoming less and less of an actual fight more and more like GTA 5 online. What will they add next in HvV? Let's give blaster heroes rail guns and laser cannons while we're at it.
  • I play both console and PC. You just play PC. You haven't played every famous rpg game if all you played are PC games your whole life. I know what I'm talking about here. Anyone who thinks bb droids should overpower heroes and villains in HvV is a noob.
  • It's crazy how broken they are. Force users can turn those soccer balls to scrap metal but somehow they're able to kill everyone

  • Droids are the best thing that's happened on HvV in months.

    It's been a long time since I've laughed so hard at a game.

    Playing hide-and-seek with BB9 in a 1vs4 game.

    Dizzying those who spam with their sabers and can't hit...

    And all those who, because they have a Jedi, think it's a guaranteed win, and get a surprise when they see the ball biting.

    I agree, I was laughing so hard at certain points when I was playing a game of HvV the other day. The BB droids have made the mode more enjoyable for me :smiley:

  • Not sure if it's me... But twice now I think I've seen Kylo glitch out and get frozen when he kills BB8. Also once I was playing as Anakin and all button functions wouldn't work after killing BB9e. All I could do was walk around. No abilities, block, attack, run, nothing... Until I was CC'd by the ball again.

  • I can get if you're mad at being a light side blaster hero (Leia, Chewie or Han) who keeps getting targeted by a pesky BB-9 player, but to complain about anything else? You're just bad at the game.

  • Ehhh...
    They're fine once you realize that you have to actually look down at them to hit em with a saber. Of course I guess I'm just thinking of hero modes.

    BB9's free stun everycouple seconds needs to go, though!
  • Remove them from the game please
  • They are indeed a nuisance when they are played properly. Approaching groups of people that have their eyes elsewhere or heroes already engaged in combat with another hero. I'd rather have seen them as less powerful reinforcements or as an ability of another hero such as Poe maybe.

    Nah, the BB's are awesome, you guys are just complaining bc theres something new that rattles your comfort zones.

    Ofc dynamics change when additions are made, it's a continual process.

    I cant stand Fett in HvV, should I make s thread to 'remove' him from the game mode?

    Personally I think droids in HvV are long overdue, if theres s vote going around I vote the BB's stay 👍
  • Only comments from someone who plays all heroes and villains equally count. No BB-8/9 mains are accepted here. :)
  • They're like miniature rolypoly Palpatines. Dash, zap, dash, zap. No skill required.

    it is battlefront. There is generally no skill required. That is the point of being a casual game

    Bwahahaha, and who did people play before the BB's ... obviously the other characters.

    But I have an idea, no comments here if you main as Han Solo, ok?
  • Yay, i can finally get more than 3 kills with a hero before i die, i just roll into a choke point and click my kill-em-all ability and the onscreen kill info never stops spilling out names, how awesome is that. The best thing is i often survive because no damn saber swinger can land a hit on me so i go back in when my ability is back, cool.

  • They're hilarious and if you are getting killed again and again by them then it's more a user issue than a droid issue.

    I was throwing BB8 around like a basket ball on Bespin yesterday.. Cracked me up... And throwing the whole team into oblivion with BB9 was the icing on the cake.

    but ... he is the senate :o He needs the other hand to rule the galaxy ... jk, I know what you mean but maybe you get my point when I throw the word "casual" in. This game is focused around and on casual players. There is not too much depth in it (compared to e.g. Battlefield, Apex, CoD, ...) and the few mechanics one has to learn is actually use two hands except on one. And that's it. Calling people therefore a noob is quite ... unfriendly almost tbh.

  • They should be reinforcements, not heroes.

    They’re making HvV even more unbalanced. If your team is using a droid & the other side isn’t, unless the other team is...not good...the side using a droid almost always loses

    Nah that’s if they play the droids like they’re on the level of Darth Vader. As Ball 9 you stay near the most powerful unit and annoy the other heroes that are trying to attack them. As Ball 8 you’ve gotta use the reveal to increase damage and then spin to win.

    Confirmed Luke froze while killing BB9 on Hoth.

  • I'm already seeing the BB droids less and less in HvV and I play that mode a lot.

    Compared to Vader and Luke, who just about appear in every HvV match, my guess is they'll be used about as much as your Landos, Phasmas, and Chewies.

    Same.

    I almost never see Ball 9. I see Ball 8 maybe 2/10 games. The player usually switches off them pretty quick, as well.

  • I've never had an issue wrecking BB droids in HvV. Get better before asking for a nerf, let alone removal of new content. They should lock this thread, it's ridiculous and OP already went off his rocker.

    Go back to WoW like you threatened, you're clearly better suited for it.

    I think the OP did go back to WOW ... maybe he'll be back to complain about the next update?

    And it's people like you that are complete trash at games. If you really think rolling around with a BB droid takes actual skill you're just a casual noob with no skills whatsoever. You're probably one of those noobs that used to hide as Bobba when we had the targeting system

    I mean I'm getting top 5 with zero star cards kiddo against tryhards with level 4 cards. I doubt you can ever accomplish that kid. My complain is a BB droid being on the same caliber of combat as heroes in HvV. They belong in CS and GA those game modes as support. Not in HvV
