  • Well if that’s what the stats say then that’s what’s true. Bossk is extremely good with his sniper and full regen.

    They can both streak well because they’re able to pick their battles in GA and regen to full but that doesn’t mean they’re OP.

    I swear DICE are committed to making the entire hero cast utterly unrewarding to play.

    The fastest way to put the nail in the coffin for this game is make heroes less fun. Without them it’s just an unbalanced, buggy arcade shooter.

    This is exactly what they are doing. I'm trying my best to hold out support for this game but enough is enough with things that don't need messed with.

    There are just as many heroes getting buffs. Rey and Bossk are both AMAZING right now and are arguably their faction's best choice right now for both HvV and GA, although Bossk requires much more skill to do as well as Palp. A slight nerf will likely mean they are simply good instead of Gods.

    On the bright side they are looking at Phasmas staff and Boba's rifle. Wish they would leave things alone though, not every thing needs a change.
  • Pobably have data that shows them over performing vs other heroes of their type.

    When I was a super tester on armored warfare before obsidian left that game nerfs and buff were given to vehicles that seemingly didnt need it.

    But their internal data said otherwise.

    I am guess Dice loop the heroes into melee heroes and ranged heroes and want them to perform at a certain %. I am not sure if they would take HVV into account or just galactic assault.

  • This game has a severe scrub infestation.
  • I may be bias because I seem to be one of few on here who like Rey but I don’t think she’s OP. She seems perfect. Maybe it’s everyone being able to see what she sees with Insight, throughout its full duration, in GA? Idk
    I don’t play Bossk much but I never had an issue with him. Only thing I can think of them finding too strong is his full regen? Idk. I hear it’s a slow regen anyway.
    Hopefully there isn’t any mega nerfs....
  • Bossk is my new main, they better not nerf him into the ground like Boba Fett it's very annoying.

    Bossk has a really slow regen, I honestly don’t have that much trouble with him if you don’t ignore him. If you do, you aren’t going to have fun.

  • Why don’t they just buff all the terrible, un-fun ones?

    Luke - longer range on Rush more damage on repulse

    Yoda - faster hit registration with saber swing. Fix ‘Master of the Force’ Card so it actually works

    Chewie - give 20 heal on kill card

    Bobba - tighter spread on EE-3/better reticule

    Iden - faster activiating droid stun. Fix wonky pulse canon aim. Sheild Blocks explosive bullets (but still not grenades etc.)

    Vader - enable block whilst choking

    Kylo - give 20 heal on kill card

    Phasma - increase range & speed of spear strikes

    Give all heroes native 10 heal on kill. Stacks for those who also have the star card.

    There you go DICE. Fixed your game for ya!

    They said in literally the same post that they are buffing most of these heroes mentioned.

  • This is disheartening. Bossk has been the only villain I've been picking lately. And Rey is the standard they should hold Luke and Kylo to.

    In other words, Buff Luke and Kylo to make them comparable.

    Bossk has no other counterpart to compare to really. He is unique and deadly in good hands.

    I really don't like all the tinkering under the hood stuff.

    What exactly does the data show? That players are going on killstreaks with them? Seriously, they buffed Palpatine too much and he is obviously dominant on the dark side, but they are looking at Rey and Bossk?
  • Also, for the record: Rey does better than other saber heroes in GA in a large part just because of wall hacks allowing her to pick her battles and never get surprised by a corner camper with a vanguard.

    That is her primary appeal as a hero and it’s a strong benefit but I don’t think she’s OP. She’s not oppressive for the enemy team and able to dominate entire lobbies in the same way Palpatine is.

    I'm assuming it will just be small changes, like reducing the active time of Insight and limiting Bossk's health regen to something like 300. Seeing through walls almost constantly once epic is a massive crutch and bad players currently don't really get punished for mistakes as Bossk as long as they survive with at least 1hp.

    I do think 90% of their hero balance changes have been done purely with HvV in mind, not GA. That’s the wrong way round IMO.

    I fully agree. If anyone from the dev team reads this, Please play your game, Bossk doesn't need any drastic changes.

    Boba’s nerf seemed to be half-baked. They forgot the part where they needed to buff his EE-3
  • Bossy is okay but Rey needs her lightsaber swing speed reduced. It’s very unfair right now. When she can get near double the amount of swings off as hero like kylo then it’s a problem.

    Just give them all a bit of native heal on kill and then you’re rewarding skilled play not camping and doing f-all with your hero.

  • Rey has the best lightsaber combo imo, but her biggest use is the nearly constant wall hacks that she provides for the entire team. Wall hacks are absurdly advantageous. I can't believe they have a hero who can give them to the whole team.

    Bossk is very strong since he has the most endurance. He can full regen and play at range for lower risk. His grenade and mines are also way stronger in GA than HvV. I love him. I still find his sniper hard to use since it is in 3rd person view.

    True, but there is also no reason to assume the characters will be completely worthless until we've seen the patch either. I know you're angry that one of your favorite characters is getting nerfed, but just try to look at this from DICE's perspective and imagine the data they are seeing. They are likely just seeing that Rey can see through walls almost constantly once epic and that Bossk will regen back to 100% a lot after almost dying simply by running away, instead of by getting kills or something else that requires skill.

    This, Bossk player should be punished for making mistakes, and rey insight should ONLY reveal enemies to her.

    I would be completely fine with them taking away wall hacks for her team or even just having it only last a short while, just don’t reduce the duration for herself. It’s a key part of what makes her fun. Without it she’s really boring tbh.

    Same, I still do very well with Boba in HvV. He simply went from the king of that mode to still very good in the right hands. He is underpowered in GA though, so I'm glad his gun is getting a buff.
