    "Don't shoot him." "Don't nerf him." "Don't FIX him" next?

    This is almost exactly what happened to me (also a full hp Bossk in the same map). I have PTSD of the Lando Glitch so hard right now.
  • Anakin is fine and should NOT be nerfed.
    Not only is he the Chosen One and should be powerful, nerfing chracters left and right just makes the game boring. Leave him be and don't listen to people that whine.

    "Wrecked?" lol that ability would still be beyond top tier if they imposed that 400 dmg cap they incorrectly left in the CT.


    Keep it infinite in HvV / cap it to 400 in GA.

    I would be OK with that if it happened. I would like to see other heroes buffed to hit similar levels or close to his level though

  • In my opinion you should switch his button layout of his abilities. [Pull Dominance on L1/LB] [Heroic Might on L1/LB + R1/RB] [Passionate strike on R1/RB]

    Using Anakin as an excuse to buff Vader

    You realise they're both the same person, right? Just one is considerably slower than the other one due to a severe case of 10 ton severely debilitating suit strapped to the body.

    But let's pretend that it's ok for one to be significantly weaker when lore-wise after Anakin's injuries he was SLIGHTLY less powerful than when he still had both his legs because of the restrictions of the suit and the extents of his injuries. Because that makes sense, right?

    Talking about the same guy that can force choke people halfway across the galaxy by just looking at them on a monitor but can't choke someone 10 feet in front of him when looking at them and for no more than a split second in-game btw.

  • I think they did a great job with Anakin, overall he is a great light side hero.

    However, being able to one shot kill another hero seems abit ridiculous considering there is no real counter. Fair enough you don't shoot him, but you cannot control what other people do.

    A couple of times I died instantly (as full health Bossk and Dooku) not even aware that I was anywhere near him. Perhaps a slight damage reduction in this ability is needed

    Now apply this same logic to say, oh I don't know. Darth Sidious? Yoda?

    Yep. The CT said the damage would be capped at 400, but for SOME STRANGE REASON ONLY GOD HAS THE ANSWER TO, they decided it was a perfectly fine, and good idea to make it 1k instead.

    Devs with a sense of balance this bent really have no business working on an alleged "AAA" title.

    The fact is that if you're running it's because you suck, and the game shouldn't pander to players who suck.

  • I totally agree with GeneralSkywalker. Anakins current button layout is essentially unintuitive. Pull Dominance: For several months, since release, I have learned that Force pull (like Kylo Ren) and Force push(es) (like Obi-Wan, Yoda, Luke) and Force abilities in general (like Vaders Force choke or Count Dookus Force lightning), all of them are on L1/LB. Passionate strike: Additionally, I've gotten used to that the most of the lightsaber related abilities are on R1/RB (like Vaders lightsaber throw or like Lukes, Yodas, Mauls and Obi-Wans lightsaber dashes). I would prefer it, if you switch Anakins skill-buttons to Pull Dominance on L1/LB, Heroic Might on L1/LB+R1/RB and Passionate strike on R1/RB. Finally, i would like to thank DICE for this fantastic hero. His abilities are most impressive on the battlefield, and they fit perfectly with Anakin's character. Good work developers! But i think the maximum damage of Heroic Might is too much. You should reduce it.
  • Guys, GA and HvV are technically team matches. If you’re team is bad enough and dumb enough to shoot at Anakin while he is charging up Heroic Might, you deserved to be killed.

    However, I can agree with the sentiment that a damage cap for Heroic Might at 400-500 in GA is good, this way any troopers and enforcers will die and people won’t immediately lose their heroes because the rest of their team was too stupid. In HvV, I am perfectly fine with there being no limit.
    Bring back Extraction to the main menu please!

    Players who struggle to earn BP quickly enough just found a new way to ensure they have got a chance at getting a Hero. Focus-fire on Anakin and be ready at the character selection screen. ;)

    He needs a nerf on his repulses, why does he even have 4 abilities anyway? I don’t care if he’s the Chosen One or not, the fact that he can clear rooms and wipe out hero’s with abilities that have no damage cap and can blast hero’s away and kill them instantly even if your nowhere near him is absurd.

    Go onto Reddit and see Bossk get instakilled when he’s nowhere near Anakin and tell me “he’s fine that’s balanced.” I get it a lot of people are trash and need the instakill, the ability is ok but fix its range and damage. That’s all keep everything else the same just fix that ability.

    Totally agree on that one !
    It needs to be fixed !
    Check out the video ive made, so ridiculous !

    The fact that you release Anakin in this state eather shows that you are deliberately showing that you don't give a F and/or that u are down right stupid.

    I will never buy a DICE game again, thanks for helping me with the decision. You are out of date and amateurs.

    Pls remove my account.
  • My Feedback would be this: Anakin is Perfect and he dosent need any Nerfing at all. He is strogn (as it should be because he is teh chosen one) Even in lore wide he was meant to be thsi strong. So teh developers finaly got hes concept and made it happen. Kudos for you guys :)

    I feel like Anakin's line, "I am a slow learner" sums up this playerbase perfectly. Although they don't want to learn and would rather just have things nerfed.

  • After actually playing him last night in ga, he's a lot of fun. His right bumper ability is similar to yoda's push ability except it's 360 degrees and does way more damage.

    I propose that yodas push is buffed to be brought up to par with anakins ability.

  • The only way to bring Anakin down to the level of the other heroes would be nerfing all of his abilities a lot, simple because he has 4 abilities. The sucess of a hero, especially at GA comes to if the person knows or not how to use the hero abilities, the moment you gave Anakin 4 abilities you throw that balance away. If you engage a hero with their abilities on CD, you can really mess any hero with any trooper let alone reinforcement. You should NOT try to nerf Anakin without giving the other heroes a 4 abilitie like Anakin has, the way he is now its going to need a nerf to the ground of all of his abilties to match the other heroes. You WILL mess Anakin if you try to nerf him based on the other heroes if you dont give the other heroes a 4 abilitie or dont remove his Retribution abilitie.
  • retribution takes way longer to be ready but is heavily worse than heroic impact. I think heroic impact is the best ability in the game and it should be swapped with retribution so that its the longest loading ability. would be more balanced
  • SWAP Heroic Impact and Retribution. Because heroic impact is the best ability in the game and it should be the longest loading one. (current one is retribution) so just swap it and it would be balanced

    My experiences with Anakin last night were all amazing! Took a while to get to play him.
    He is a hero not to be trifled with, sorry but you can just go button mashing him with a saber hero, same in GA you cant pull out your sentry and spam him while hes in heroic might ability. I love all the abilities.
    I, like most would like to see the abilities buttons swapped. L1 Pull Dominance R1+L1 Heroic Might R1 Passionate Strike.
    Also like one of the videos above, I was OHK in GA with 750 health by heroic might (as Kylo) of which i couldn't see the radius expand. He was fighting Dooku which i'm sure amplified the damage output. I'm never mad when my hero dies anymore but i was upset i couldn't try my luck in a duel.

    Less than 24 hours and calls for nerf, pathetic, people did the same when last lot came out, no nerfs were done, and no one bleating anymore, because they got used to playing against them. Don't play then simple.

    Agree. Find ways to counter his powerful abilities (yes, doing nothing is a counter since two of Anakin’s abilities charge with the amount of damage he receives). If you don’t want to use brain cells finding counters to powerful hero abilities, don’t play against heroes.

    Extraction is a wonderful non-hero game mode btw. ;)

    Yeah me too. It's just like no one knows how to have fun

    I am already getting tired of the nerf Anakin threads. I haven’t played with Anakin yet, but the CT outlined specific ways to counter his charge-up abilities (namely don’t attack him and keep block up/roll away) since it freezes him in place.

    Im not saying he needs a nerf. All I am saying is that you should be able to choke, freeze or pull him out of the heroic might stance he does.
  • Sir, Retribution is pretty much unavoidable guaranteed death for everybody in it’s radius except heroes. Heroic might at least gives a chance to get to cover or behind something.

    Plus, it’s nearly unavoidable as the animation starts quickly, and there’s no real indication to dodge, and you just get choked and pushed, then you could get pulled and PS’d then Retributioned. The combo would be broken.

  • He’s perfectly fine in GA, not everything is based of Heroes Vs Villains alright! Yes he is powerful in heroes vs villains but he does have his counters and is killable. They did a good job in representing him in how he plays, he is aggressive and jumps into the heat of battle and comes out victorious just like in the movies and clone wars series. Quit complaining guys and be happy you got him and stop asking for nerfs because that’s all you guys seem to do on here.
  • Don't know. After 8 hours of play, I didn't get a chance to use him.
  • Well that was fun. Spawned as Darth Vader, saw Anakin, blocked and he two hit me dead right through the block. Good stuff.

    This character has broke the gameplay on all modes with heroes on it.

    Dude I could not agree more! It is STUPID. So on Endor at the last leg, I spawned as Anakin. Walked right into the small room dropped down from the second level, used Heroic Might right away. 14 player kill streak! 14 (including 2 heroes) in less than 5 seconds. With NO STAR CARDS! All I did was Heroic Might. Never even fired my light saber at anyone. Cleared the room instantly. How insane is that?

    Now apply this same logic to Yoda and Sidious, both of whom have been portrayed as stronger than Anakin ever was, or would become.

    I dont care if you shouldnt hit him or not but this is bull no hero shold be this protected for this long Anakin is never vunerable

    Well by hitting him so often you fuelled his damage output and killed yourself. It's quite simple - you see him go into this stance you stop hitting him, hit him afterwards.

    That's not the point he's making. Everyone in this thread is well aware how that ability now works.

    The problem he has (and I agree) is 90% damage reduction while using the ability means that during that entire barrage of hits, Anakin took effectively no damage. So he's essentially in-vulnerable for around 6-8 seconds. You'd think at least if it was only 60-70% of damage reduction, there would be a risk/reward scenario.

    1 - There's a reward you could actually kill him by going into the risk zone of being killed to deal damage to him
    2 - There's a risk the user of Anakin could just unleash the ability at any point and the damage multiplier would kill you, if that makes sense... It would encourage more of a balance around the ability. Right now everyone just runs for the hills... Which is anti-climatically 5hit imo.

    Right now he's basically invincible, and if taken enough damage can kill anyone in a 2 mile radius without almost any risks - Just point out

    Hello, im Mr. immune-for-all-yours-forceusersthings-oneshot-1kHP-rektyourteam new Hero
    You can try chop me by yours sabers...but who cares, im "broken one"
    A LOT OF HITS BY LIGHTSABER!!! It doesn't just sound stupid,it looks terrible

    Add: for those who say his not op,broken, etc.
    Just start HvV on DS and try too solo him. On any hero without help, you can not kill him If he not braindead.

    It gets countered by 1-2 players with a brain running hero hunter specialists in GA. The problem is in HvV. Especially if you soloqueue with randoms that have no business in multiplayer.

    That, and lying on the CT is also never a good idea. (Because I refuse to believe "last minute changes" wouldn't be confirmed and put into the final patch notes.)

  • Git good, he is 100% balanced, his moves are dodgeable get good or get out
  • I am just glad I punched his effing lights out. Guess when he is down with Heroic Might he is susceptible to melee if anyone is brave enough to try to get in before he releases it.

  • I don't know how anyone can argue it's fair. I've just been on the light side in HvV. It took us 5 minutes (PC) to get a game because people were dropping out for being on the dark side. Game began, instantly we dominated. Guy as Anakin killed 3 people right at the beginning (Before you all kick off about his damage absorption > output he barely got hit but managed to wipe a team). All but 1 of the other team left because no matter what they just got battered I felt so bad for them. The guy as Anakin ended with nearly 35 kills/executions. We barely got a look in on kills. I'm sick of reading about play styles, how to fight him. I get it. Play intelligently. But there is a fundamental overpowering strength with him and I'm playing people who don't even have him fully star carded up - Imagine playing Hero showdown? Not a chance you'd have of winning basically.
  • His harsh pull can be blocked, his spell that makes him have damage reduction is stagerable. As long as you choke or push his ability is canceled. His strike slow motion is so easy to dodge.

    Likewise if he detonates just dodge. The telegraph is colossal it is dodge able without any skill.

    In regard to the aoe choke, just block. It’s ridiculous ppl. Stop complaining. The chosen one has the most power of all heroes.

    No, he is not fine. His Heroic Might is extremely OP to the point that he can spawn camp entire teams. ***** with the "git gud" B--S. That ability needs to be nerfed down to 60% damage reduction. Most players haven't even purple'd him out yet. Imagine how ridiculous he'll be then.

    I give up. It is clear now this game will never be seriously balanced again. The developers and players clearly do not want it to be. If the audience wants nothing more then a casual silly button mash game instead of a competitive and thoughtful star wars game where you actually have to have skill to be successful, alright then.

    DICE are tired of this game and tired of the community. They release meaningless and cringeworthy things that we don't want (like how many skins for clonetroopers are there....?) and they can't balance things out so they try to end it all with one last trolling of the fanbase - Make Anakin Wifestrangler OP beyond belief and lets be done with it!

    So are we talking science fiction realism now? The way you're talking we might as well have blaster hero vs hero game modes then lightsaber vs lightsaber game modes.

    It's a game. There should be an element of balance. I don't take pride in playing as him and nuking an entire team - I'd rather play viva pinata. They've made playing as him just as easy and alternatively boring
