    Old Ben. Wiser and relied more on the force and outsmarting his opponent to win
  • Yeah Old Ben was wise almost like Yoda. Way more badass.

    Definitely younger. He could actually do things and was considered one of the best Jedi to ever be apart of the order. And he's just cool

    Well he was cool, skilled and charismatic but I don't know. I'm more curious as to what Old Ben is like and how his strength and experience with the force would have grown.

    Both.
    The kind mixed with the wicked, the will to fight until the end, I'm not your enemy or friend.

    What do you mean better? Which should we get? Both, but the young one first. Which is a stronger character/Jedi? The old obviously. Which would be a more interesting character to use? The old one again.

    Young Ben, old Ben's powers were weak.

    Old Ben would be too OP. Took down Maul in two seconds.

    Prequel Obi-Wan

    Only a adapt at High Ground
    Can lose

    OT Obi-Wan
    Master at High Ground
    So masterful at the High Ground that even if you beat him he still wins

    Well that was a bit unrealisitc but Maul just underestimated him and thought he was exiled, weak and demoralized.

    Why not have both via alternate skins? Given the choice I'd opt for old ben just for nostalgia, but having a young ben for the prequel era is more likely.
    The greatest teacher, failure is.
  • Both would be nice if no cross era matches.

    It all depends how they do HvV and whether or not it'll be an a mashup of all eras.
  • If we can't have both then Young Kenobi is my preference.

    There ya go, two unique playstyles for the same wisecracking wise man.

    Yeah I'm kinda torn on this. Kept thinking we'd get old Ben in the first game, but much more "iconic" characters made the cut. So I'm hoping he makes it into this game, young or old.
  • Both. Maximize our options. Give us fans a different iteration of Obi-Wan for a different era. There is really no competent reason to be restrictive on content and then force the fans into an either/or discussion. If there is a legitimate reason (legal or otherwise) to not include Old Ben, then inform the fans ultimately. Otherwise, dear DICE, just be over-inclusive!

    General Kenobi would not be a support hero. He can fight for his own for example he fought Maul, Grievious and Anakin without help. Shaak Ti would be a support Jedi due to her connection to the clones and their training on Kamino.

    I didn't mean that he should be a sole support hero like Leia. I meant a hero who can buff nearby allies AND can kick some Clanker ***** in the process. His lightsaber style is based around defense, so why not let him give armour to Clones like Krennic does?

    So let's say they do an all eras HvV, should they allow 2 Kenobis on the same team or Anakin vs Vader?

    Yes, Ben Kenobi and Obi-Wan Kenobi can be in one team, also Anakin vs Vader should be possible.

    Not sure how I'd feel about this. I'm more against it then for but if the devs do it, so be it. Grey out one hero if the other is chosen first would be how I'd do it.

    Still something tells me Old Ben and Anakin will be ditched over Vader and young Kenobi. EA will go the path of least resistance. EAsy way. I bet money this will happen just watch.

    I could see Old Ben being left out, but not Anakin.

    You forgot to add Ben and Ani ghosts.
