Nerf bossk & Palpatine!

A lot of you want anakin nerfedyl yet none of you say Palpatine is op & a lot of you say bossk is balanced yet as soon as the lightside gets a powerful hero it's nerf him. Bossk mines do 400 plus damage & can be placed down again to do 800 damage. Emperor Palpatine melts through infantry & consistently gets you over 100 eliminations, chain lightening breaking block, dark aura making you extremely slow & at times permanently, & practically being invincible against jedi yet none of you say nerf such & such. Heck while im at it boba does 640 damage to blasters yet you all say nothing. only thing that anakin needs adjustments on is his infinite range for heroic might that is all.

  • You can see the mines, plus as soon as you put a second set of mines, the first ones disappear., very rarely you step unto ALL of them because how they are spread out when deployed.

    That's slightly, just a tiny bit different from OHK 4 heroes at once with one ability :blush:
  • You’re thinking only about ga. In HvV, bossk and the emperor are not as top tier. And anakin is only op in HvV
    Hech4Lyf!
  • I do admit that its kind of funny that as a Bossk main, I can take away 2/3 of an enemies' health with just my mines, without even counting in the unblockable Dioxis damage and Micro Grenades. Yet people say that he is the most balanced hero but when Anakin one hits Vader it "NeRf ThE cHoSeN oNe" even though these same people spent months saying that Anakin needed to be OP...

  • No, If anything, they need a buff atm. No Darkside hero has a chance against Anakin in GA, and they won’t win.

    We don't want anakin to be nerfed to uselessness. We want him to be balanced. Heroic might at the moment relies on at least one fool shooting him during build up. Without it I'd say this ability is a bit trash. It needs to be completly unaffected by damage taken and rely on build up time with the max damage from full duration capped at promised 400. Also Retribution needs to deal promised 100 to heroes and 150 to troopers and make them invurnable to damage from other sources since the victims hang for about 7 seconds and maybe it needs to be blockable. No one is saying anything about his others features (yet) and you can't say he would be underpowered without HM and Retribution in their current state, cause his other stats are really amazing, as they probably should

    Nerf the entire game for gosh sakes, take out weapons because gosh forbid someone gets killed. We need a safe space game so no one gets their feelings hurt, no one gets mad, or killed, or offended. Give everyone potato guns and flags. I honestly think that’s what some want sometime, just wows me.

    Disagree with all that except the fool part lol & his hm ability is trash is without getting hit. The damage for his abilities are fine it's high risk & reward. Don't shoot him & you easily can gang up on him & kill him. Retribution should stay as is also, vader can have you melted in seconds with his choke so it's fine

    I mean buff the other villains, and Palps and Boosk. Give em fourth abilities, damage reduction on certain ability animations, and make a hero his actual counter, like Dooku.

    I wouldn’t call either of those chokes fine

  • I don't know about Bossk but the Emperor seems a bit OP to me.
  • Damn that gif war was the best thing I’ve seen on this Forum
  • Boskk and Palps are well balanced in HvV imo, don't know about GA since I barely play it, but the few times I have played it I have wrecked house with Boskk, his gas grenade and mines can wipe out a whole team at choke points.
  • The last thing this game needs is a nerf to those two Bossk & Palpatine characters before anything else which will undoubtedly break GA's balance even more in favor of the Light Side. Anakin's already more of a powerhouse in GA than he is in HvV -- there's always going to be that one scrub that fuels him at the throne room on Naboo or elsewhere.
    Man! Could this game get any more broken?

    Palpatine gets ragdolled 90% of the time now thanks to Anakin and Obi can disable his only escape besides jumping away, if anything he needs his block from 2015 back
  • The only thing Papatine needs is more skins.
  • Buff the rest off the roster.

    I agree they are strong but I don’t think they are the best behind anakin vader would be better for example than the emperor for sure.
  • Leave Bossk alone he is awesome the way he is.


  • Anakin is way more op than either of them

    Couldn’t agree moar. Seems like this game anymore is nothing but noobs, and snowflakes “I got killed by something, nerf it”

    Troopers, however will kill him.

    It really isn't a joke. It may not be the most effective counter towards anyone else, but since 50% of Anakin's Kit involves him standing still for half an eternity, Stinger Pistols will kill him.

    All you need is 2 players, and it's a guaranteed kill. Stealth. WhateverYouWant. Stinger Pistol loadouts.
    Heart of darkness beateth, Ultima
    Iron enigma treateth, Ultima
    Shielding light retreateth, Ultima
    Hydaelyn defeated. Ah, Ultima


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

    Not nerfed to uselessness - yeah right :joy: :joy:

    where was it promised that retribution would only do 100 damage to heroes and 150 to troopers, whilst also being invulnerable to any other damage? I am sure you have made that up. Retribution would be utterly pointless to use then if that happened, especially against heroes. Blockable I could live with. But that damage reduction and damage invulnerability is completely daft and would make the ability null and void.

    That one fool shooting him in heroic might will stop soon, don't worry. Also - its blockable and can be disrupted.

    You guys are just blatantly ignoring anything that says contrary to your mad ideas in this quest to get Anakin nerfed hard. Balanced to you is basically the ability to wreck any hero with a trooper or 2.

    So how is Bossks abilities in GA well balanced but Anakins are overpowered?

  • Palpatine is fine lol. Bossk just need to have his mines in cooldown after his current ones gets activated.

    Just buff everyone to match the ones that are "op". I'm talking from an HvV stand point, as I don't care for GA and heroplay vs troops.

    This could be a mistake if you can place it where they'd never detonate. Only an enemy can detonate them now.

    Can't do that. Potatoes leave bruises and draw tears. Change it to happy thoughts and marshmallows. I'm offended you even mentioned a weapon of mass destruction such as a potato.

    True. But they can make it whenever he uses his micro grenades,it refreshes the bomb abilities.

    I said he was well balanced in HvV, not GA, I said I don't have enough experience playing Boskk and Palps in GA to comment on their balance in GA.
  • Don't you dare touch Bossk, he's about the most well balanced hero there is. Ah, how fondly I remember the "nurf Bassk, Bassk is OP" thread from BF2015...
