Do you really like Rey?

Prev1
Don't get me wrong, i have nothing against her but i seriously do not understand the logic behind it.

Why is she the strongest force user in light side? Maybe even in the game? I'm not gonna dabble with discussing the movie side of things but seriously though.

We got Luke, Yoda and most recently Obi-Wan, who are supposed to be "Masters" yet all her abilities, damage, overall effectiveness in almost any game mode, superior to others?

They didn't have to make her as absurdly overpowered like in the movies. Why does it have to be like that? Does Kathleen Kennedy visit Dice personally to instruct that she has to be the strongest because force is female?

Joking aside, it's just sad that a new, undeveloped character such as Rey shouldn't be on the same level, or in this case, even stronger than the years old, developed, supposedly powerful characters.

Kylo is nowhere near as good as her. So why Rey is as good as she is?

This is not a hate/nerf thread. I'd rather see other heroes adjusted instead of nerfing Rey. Please do not get offended by anything i mentioned above. This is just meant for lore/gameplay discussion.

  • Kylo needs a buff.

  • I would like to see all the Saber heroes return to prominence. Somehow with the last few patches and bugs they have become a joke, an easy kill for the infantry.

    When I am playing as an infantry, I run towards the big blue/red dot on the map especially if the hero is a saber user because they are an easy kill.

    At least bring the other saber users to the level of Rey.

    In HvV all heros should be unnerfed and at full power
  • Overall, she really isn't that good, all she has is Insight, which is literally the only real reason to pick her over a blaster.

    Why bring a saber to a blaster fight amirite? No, my point was that she is clearly better compared to many other force users. Especially her LS buddies.
  • Rey is like vader for the lightside, can take on all 4 and still win, imo all heros should be like this

    Well yes, she is arguably one of the best picks in GA, and is a solid choice in HvV, but I would say she is only really better than Kylo on DS, I think the LS sabers could be better if the bugs got fixed though.

    Which makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. While vader winning 1v4 would make sense lore wise, it's still not good game design. I'm not in support of Vader being able to do more than 1v1 easily. Rey shouldn't too.

    No hero should be able to 1v multiple. At least in this game. It doesn't have necessary mechanics for something like that.

    Because Disney, cut of ea’s balls in the matter, they made her a merry sue. And said you make her the most op, or no funding.

    We need to annoy fans both in game and the scenematic universe.

    I feel like your opinion is outright exaggerating Rey's effectiveness against heroes a bit with this post. Darth Vader and General Grievous beat her in 1v1 duels as of now, and said heroes are more effective than Rey against heroes, one of which can potentially be so against multiple heroes. Tedious fights there may be, but Rey is not necessarily winning the endgame when up against equal or beyond in terms of skill levels.
    Man! Could this game get any more broken?
  • I like Rey. She makes me feel things.

    you're funny, she's literally the best lightsaber hero
  • Rey :love::love:

    +1
  • I like Rey... and she remains IMO the best Hero for GA as far as helping your team win because of her insight and her defensive abilities. Like in the final Kamino room or Theed final stages or Yavin final stages, or Jakku or whatever... her presence almost guarantees a win unless the team is absolutely inept.
  • Neither like nor dislike. Not a terrible character but doesn't particularly interest me.

    Her balancing state in terms of being lore-friendly is irrelevant in a game where Chewie can wreck multiple Sith Lords.

    It's her combat animations. Rey's light saber swings are faster than everyone else's meaning that she's easier to use, and dishes out damage quicker.

    + add in the Wall Hack, infinite block, invisibility, with reverse control effects (god·like abilities)

    DICE needs to speed up the saber melee animations for all the other heroes, especially Vader.

  • Do I like using her? Yes. She can singlehandly win the game, and put you atop the leaderboard for doing next to nothing.

    Do I like the fact that her usefulness far outclasses that of all the other light side heroes combined? No.
  • I don't mind her no. But Luke should be stronger and have more skins than she does. Yes

    You do know that Insight in GA can turn the tide of a phase right? And in GA her Insight ability gets her kill assist points without even touching the player who got killed. Personally, I think you can’t go wrong with picking Rey on any map in a game of GA.

    My Rey GA Loadout:
    Far Sight
    Focused Sight
    (Insert the name of her health on kill card here)
    Add more Extraction and SA maps please!

    What the ROADMAP should look like for 2019/2020:
    “Season” 4: Clone Wars Revival
    “Season” 5: Episode IX
    “Season” 6: Rogue One
  • Yeah. Almost Have Her To Level 40.

    her damage output can be insane and her mind trick can be a death sentence to enemy villains if timed right so no insight isn't the only thing she has.

  • Rey is the top LS light saber user...she has the speed for spam and stamina. She's strong in offence and defence. And I think she's from Sweden...which makes her even way more powerful in a male dominant SW universe and naturally triggers incels.
  • She isn't that good, the main reason she is better than other LS heroes is that the others are badly designed or bugged.

  • The main difference I notice is that Rey's abilities work 99% of the time, unlike other saber users. Maul still has a broken saber throw. Yoda's unleash doesn't always work (defensively or offensively), Obi Wan's blocking and push don't work the majority of the time, Kylo's frenzy is broken, Luke's push is 50/50, animation too long for Epicenter. All those issues with those abilities + Rey can remove herself from radar, gain an amazing wall hack and have unlimited stamina it would appear she's overpowered. Fix the other abilities first. Then revisit. Then buff other saber heroes to get to her level.
  • THANK YOU! I have no issue with Rey being good in this game, what I do have an issue with is the fact that the three most popular characters on the LS are all useless in HvV. Yoda, Obi, and Luke all need HvV buffs.

    Rey is amazing! She's my fav character. I won't say anything for GA as I've been away from this mode for quite a long time, but in HvV she's so amazing.

    However her specialty comes from the fact that she's easy to use and has useful abilities that work well together. On the LS: Best HP, 2nd Best Regen, can block, dashes instead of rolls, infinite stamina during skill. She's a solid pick. And she swings fast. However she's far from the best hero, and the fact most others experience bugs that she doesn't explains why she's a good pick.

    Yoda is far better if properly managed. But as he can't block sabers, he isn't an easy character. You must be really good with Yoda to excel in his advantages and minimize his disadvantages. And Yoda's unleash can fail due to a bug.

    Obi is far stronger: More Regen, More Damage, Same HP. Best Blocking character in the game, a immunity rush, and a really good push (it can deal up to 180 damage). However he's also prone to bugs.

    Luke is the one who suffers the most. Not an easy character to go despite being able to block, both push and repulse oftenly fail due to a bug, and he's the weakest saber user in the game: 100 damage from swing, 100 damage from rush, lowest saber user regen in the game (200). Maul has more 50 regen but less 50 max health (which is better) and also only does 100 damage (swing and spin), but he swings faster and is overall much faster to go around the battlefield despite not having a block, and Kylo has 50 more regen, same health, also does 100 damage per swing but only 80 on Frenzy, and as the frenzy is currently broken, if it wasn't for being an exceptional controller with pull and freeze, Kylo would deserve the worst saber spot.

    BTW, this is all only considering HvV, no GA, no HS.
    Tired of BUGs?

    Well, they'll still exist.
    But visit the Rogue Bros Channel, there we document many BUGs and possible workarounds for them. There's also gameplay and other videos related to EA's Star Wars Battlefront (I & II)

    In the movies? Sure.

    In the game? Sure. She isn’t nearly as OP as people are claiming she is though. She’s not on par with Vader. That’s a comical statement in and of itself to claim. May she be the best of Jedi to swing away and possibly beat you? Perhaps. But she’s not necessarily the most user-friendly. If you don’t know how to properly use her dash strike and mind trick, they’re greater detriments to Rey than they are to her opponent. She has no ranged ability that damages. She has to be face-to-face with an enemy to deal damage to them so that explains having good damage values. She’s alright in GA simply because of Insight. She, and all heroes, can still be taken out rather easily.

    Not to mention she’s currently being discriminated against by being the only character that gains 60 health for killing an enemy hero while the standard for literally everyone else is 100.
  • Trust me, when I play as her, she’s dreadful.

    But that’s what happens when you put a pilot in charge of crowd control...

    In the game, absolutely. She has some of the best abilities in the game which are even better when enhanced with her cards. Infinite stamina+Wallhacks, Dash Strike with knockdown that can OHK troopers, very fast saber swing and the list goes on.
    While I'm on PC and saber heroes get wrecked, I've been playing only lightsaber heroes:

    Outdoor maps > Luke
    Indoor maps > Rey

    No she isn't bad, she just isn't the most overpowered thing in the universe that many people make/made her out to be, she has had the most nerfs of all heroes I'm pretty sure.

    Why shouldn't she be? She's the hero of the new sequel trilogy. Of course the movie side affects the gameplay side of things. And maybe they want, for once, a AAA shooter game to appeal to a wider audience and especially to female gamers, what's wrong with that? I don't get killed by Rey any more than I do Han or Chewie. Just roll and evade. Yesterday on Geonosis I almost took out a Rey all alone with an officer, I did so many awesome rolls and evades. Almost. :)

  • I loved her in TFA, thought she was also good in TLJ, but became a Mary Sue. She went from swinging a lightsaber around like a kid to taking down Praetorian Guards.

    Give me an Old Luke skin, and we will be best friends. He is the only one I plan on buying with real $. :-)

    She had it in her. Naturally it didn’t take long for her to get a grip of the lightsaber. As you can see in TFA she’s already a very skilled fighter even before she got in touch with Finn, Han and eventually Luke. Growing up alone in a wretched hive of scum and villainy surely has something to do with it... That is not Mary Sue-ish.

    She’s a cool character.

    Yeah I know, but Praetorian Guards were trained for this sort of thing. It only makes the Guards look incompetent, that is just my opinion. Should've been Rey constantly getting pushed back/disarmed and Kylo having to save her, not the other way around

    Kylo Ren fought groups of three the entire battle... Yeah, it ended with Rey ”saving” him, if you wanna call it that (he got the kill), but up till then, Ben was the one carrying the team. All in all they were fairly equal, and they should be: ”Darkness rises, and light to meet it.”

    And the bad guys look incompetent in Star Wars? No way! Dude, that’s how it’s always been: ”Only Imperial Stormtroopers are so precise.” LOL.

    Kylo was rightfully carrying the team, but my problem is with Rey, she shouldn't be killing Praetorian Guards herself.
    I have a problem with Stormtroopers too, the OT and Rebels never did them justice. But I'll at least cut them some slack since they seem to be more about quantity than quality. But Praetorian Guards are supposed to be protecting one of the most powerful beings in the galaxy, it's natural to expect them to be competent

    By that logic someone who grew up in a bad neighborhood should be able to take on secret service members...

    And when you really think about it its not like the people on Jakku are even dangerous or that much of a threat. That guy she stole BB8 from barely put up a fight, and those dudes sent by Unkar just grabbed her.

    Have trouble seeing how years of fighting these guys equate to being able to kill the highly trained guards of the strongest being in the galaxy

    No, you couldn’t say that, because that guy growing up in a bad neighbourhood doesn’t harbor raw force strength of a magnitude that even surpasses Darth Vader’s. That guy isn’t chosen by the force to rise and meet a darkness stronger than ever. She can clearly handle herself in battle. And how do you know what she fought in her days? And again, Star Wars is filled to the brim with incompetent villains.

    So what is your opinion on a teen boy with some experience in agricultural flight, suddenly jumping into the cockpit of a high tech, top of the line fighter aircraft, that he has no experience of, leading a successful attack on a completely superior, well defended, highly advanced military target?

    And what is your opinion on a 6 year old with some experience in go-cart racing pulling off pretty much the same stunt?

    Welcome to fiction. Welcome to Star Wars.
