  • We haven't forgotten and this needs to be fixed.

    You can't fix something that isn't broken and is within the design of the character

    A powerful force user not being able to defend at all against other force users or deflect blaster bolts is horribly broken.

    It is obvious they care about balance over being accurate... I am not sure why people are mad that DICE are trying to balance the game when all I ever read on here about the last game is about how unbalanced it was.

    Make up your minds

    Unbalanced is having no defence against other force users.

    Being able to block a few bolts and saber attacks would not unbalance him.

    Got a lot of play time with all the heroes on all the maps?

    I do... and can tell you he is balanced

    this isnt a lightsaber combat game... it isnt about the heroes and villains, not everything will be accurate but it will be balanced. if u want a lightsaber combat game wait for respawns star wars game being released sometime after 2019.

    I think if anything, he is too strong and could be nerfed a bit.

    exactly. i still dont understand why people wants heroes to have all these extra features and abilities.

    So having a block is an extra feature?? Please, he's a sith Lord and has been trained in the arts throughout childhood, but Rey that hasn't ever endured any training can block? Bottom line all saber heroes should be able to block, no ifs or buts.

    yes. ur asking for him to be stronger when hes already strong. he looks like a better hero than rey even tho he cant block... they can regen so it doesnt matter, rey doesnt zip around and throw her lightsaber. maul can use his spin attack THREE times, i would say thats balanced. and u dont know if rey has had training.

    all saber heroes should be able to block but i dont think maul should be able to.

    Stronger? It's a universal ability for all light saber wielders, without Darth Maul being able to block he's going to get chewed up and spat out by other saber characters, Han Solo's rapid fire is going to have a field day with him. It doesn't matter if he can use his spin attack 3 times, he's still going to take on damage and die, it's not as effective as having a simple block. It's probably alright for you because you won't play the character. Also Rey hasn't trained.

    Okay. Fair enough but your talking about vs infantry.

    In that case I still think a block is needed. Reduce the number of spins by 2 and add a small block that allows maul to block 3 bolts at a time. His blocking stamina could also last for about 15 bolts.

    Fair enough. Although this is vs infantry.

    Maul could lose 2 blocks and gain a block that can deflect a few bolts at a time. His block stamina could also run out after about 15 bolts.

    ill play with everyone but mostly infantry. no duh most saber users do block but its a game and its more about balance not accuracy. and no he wont be defeated by other saber users that easy bc hes mostly offense and can kill easily! u dont know if all saber heroes will be able to block so maul might not be the only one. hans rapid fire kills everyone, like when he gets vader from behind... blocking might not save u. if he has a spin attack that he can use three times he can just run away. stop talking like if u die u wont be able to come back ever again lol.

  • Possible solution for Maul: Give him the block ability for blasterbolts and other force users, and let his spinattack be usable every 15 seconds instead being able to use it 3 times, similar like Luke's saber rush in Battlefront 2015.

    i dont remember that and the only other saber heroes we know of are yoda, rey, luke, vader and kylo. any new ones might not be able to.

    "He must block bc he's a force user" that argument isn't valid.

    If I counted how many times I have been Force Rushed By Luke after he blocked making my shots and that of my Team-Member's Useless

    It's not fun

    And the idea of Maul being able to Block would be even worse than Luke

    The problem is Maul wasn't designed to be like that he was designed to be a mad Berzerker character and had his speed increased dramatically to compensate for this. he is a character designed to flank and pop in a room devastate the Republic Forces and than dart out while your team wipes out the few survivors and than rinse and repeat

    By having Darth Maul be able to block they would have to remove most of the stuff they brought in for him as with his Extreme Speed and tactic, he wouldn't have to retreat he would just be able to stand in the room and spam his abilities like normal but unlike Vader he would be given super speed the very same combination that makes Luke in the first game so annoying and Over-Powered

    You have to fight clever. Flank the hero shoot the from behind. Luke was very easy to take out, especially on open maps.

    Now heroes are even easier to kill as the have little to no ohk abilities and their health is drastically lower.

    Blocking ability would also be balanced by stamina, number of simultaneous deflections and accuracy.

    If you gain distance between maul and your self you can kill him in one overheat.

    Shoot from behind and have them turn around and saber rush you? Yeah that works great, considering he can just get the health back with a bacta.

    He can easily be balanced and still block.

    And he can easily be balanced without block, which is the direction they are taking and one which you must trust and accept. The game can stand to have a little asymmetry. Please stop beating the dead horse.

    You guys just don't want to understand.... also Dennis said they tried to make Maul to block, but blocking slowing him down, i mean obviusly when you blocked in the first game you walked so slow even you stopped.

    The idea of Maul is not this and i can understand it. They made him fast and agile, like a berserker, blocking would just broke the dynamic of the character. Maul is **** OP and no need for blocking, because instead of blocking the blaster fire you just jump and get to the enemy as fast as you can, its stupid to slow him down.

    Heroes can die easy in sw bf2, if you start blocking in the middle of the street and 600 trooper shoots at you you can shove blocking up your *****. Instead you run, run and hit and kill with speed.

    It's really boring to be Dengar In BattleFront and you can't do a thing to Luke, except rush right next to him with your abilities and than get curbstomped because all your stuff is deflected and because you are now close to him

    Totally agree, Maul is fast and like a berserker, no need for block

    This will completely ruin lightsaber duels.

    you never blocked each others lightsaber

    Yeah I wouldn't be to sure about that.
    I battled extensively with my friends with Luke & Vader and I can assure you that you could indeed block lightsaber attacks as a force user in Dice's first battlefront game.

    Run Defalt you are no match for him he's a Noob Lord

    Don't worry, I know of his sort.
    Its kinda my specialty.

    Dengar was good against Luke, but they nerfed his hurricane strike (Not talking about the insta kill) so he's not as great anymore.
    Killed luke everytime before they patches. Fun times.
    Also what does Dengar have to do with maul?
    They have entirely different play styles & both differ way to much in regard to how the game plays.

    Still think he should get a fairly minimal block vs blasters. Don't know how this can be sooo offensive to some.

    I'd be fine with him blocking against blaster fire, but too many people will get triggered. You have to tread lightly around some of these people lol

    How about this:
    He can have a passive star card that gives him an X (meaning 20 or 50 %) percent chance to deflect incoming blaster fire any which way. Meaning he will not block laser bolts directly at his target but in an entirely unrelated direction. He can remain on the move whilst doing so, just to retain the hit & run playstyle the developers want for him.

    Don't worry, it's not. I've realised most of them just hop on the bandwagon for the sake of it. I've seen countless people on Twitter, YouTube comment section and on Reddit not liking the fact that Darth Maul can't block plus not to mention they want a block given to him. A 3-4 second block should do the trick, if you do think about it, 3-4 seconds is such a minuscule time frame so it wouldn't even stop him from his so called "beserker" playstyle.

  • I don't want lightsaber duels to be bad again, make lightsaber duels fun again, that starts with giving each of them a block
    RIP Sig Gifs, It would be nice to have coruscant, and big offline content modes, and these heroes at launch:
    Prequel era : yoda, obi wan, Anakin, padme, maul, jango, dooku, grievous,
    Original era: Luke, leia, Han, chewy, Vader, palps, boba, bossk
    New era: Rey, kylo

    They should make it 2 seconds and have him do a jog while blocking.

    PREACH, I just think people are shook of Darth Maul or just flat out not interested in playing the character or they want a easy win if they stumble across him.

  • Yeah as many other people have said I don't want to be swinging my lightsaber with Vader while Luke is literally bouncing from side to side while I'm trying to fix the screen so I can see him, sometimes he would jump right through me lol

    That sounds good enough to me, 3 seconds max would be perfect with a slower jog IMO also how long did Luke's block last for before they increased it after launch? 4 seconds wasn't it?

    I totally know what you mean! That man knows no limits or boundaries, I usually just go for Palpatine to counter Luke. I use chain lightning then the squad usually finishes him off :sunglasses:

    Nah. Just give him a relatively weak block. If enough blaster fire is aimed his way the block will be broken.

    I think the block should have a set number of bolts it can block instead of a time limit, so in sense the enemy would be overwhelming your defences.

    I think about 15 shots, maybe 10.
