Take Anakin out of HvV, but not GA.

In GA he’s still unbalanced, but it’s not as bad as in HvV. I’ve played 10 games now and the light side has won 9/10 times with Anakin topping the leaderboard 9/10 times (the 1/10 being topped by yoda). Is there anyway to make the playing ground even for both blaster and saber heroes, because at the moment it seems to favor saber heroes heavily...

Possible nerfs:
lower saber damage
lower retribution damage and lessen time
lower heroic might significantly (seems to 1 shot every hero)
take away either pull or strike
Pull or strike aren’t broken, but it seems unbalanced that he has 2 OP abilities (high damage) and 2 good abilities (push/pull/force) , where most other characters have 1 OP ability at most and 1 or 2 good abilities.

For those protesting against a nerf, how can one successfully counter anakin?

I’m familiar with not damaging him during heroic might but not aware of any other counters.

    I've destroyed all purple card Anakins with Dooku and Gen G so far on 1v1. But him with anyone like the spammer mary sue or boosters like Yoda or Finn...is where it gets difficult and DS team work (aka team spamming) is needed.
  • I played HvV for four days around Anakin. Their are people that got high leader boards 1-5 place. It's basically try to kill everybody and level it faster.
    I played him 4 times and got him to level 10. With people more experience and skilled, it's all the combinations.

    Count me as a proud member of the ’Anakin is just fine the way he is’ club. I don't think he needs a nerf at all. I think they did an exceptional job with him. It's been incredibly fun for me playing with him, but I've had just as much fun playing against him.

    SN: I think you're confusing Heroic Might with Retribution in some parts of your post.
  • While the range of Retribution and Heroic Might are arguably pretty generous, Anakin is fine, and in his current state is not breaking HvV.

  • I find Anakin no different than Dooku or Grievous in HvV. Most everyone I played against are still getting used to him. My only real headache with Anakin is GA. HvV has been a rather normal experience. Like some said, once you get Finn, Yoda, Chewie or Lando in the mix, that's where it becomes a problem. Anakin's power moves are easily avoided in HvV because the damage output on those moves are reliant on damage he takes. More damage taken, more damage given out. Less of a chance for thar to happen in HvV unless people wail on him while he's charging. I've had people back off when they saw me charging and people attack me. Other than that, he's pretty even with the likes of Grievous and Dooku.

    The feedback on the forums suggest you have it the wrong way around. People are learning to deal with Ani in HvV, where you can pretty much avoid Heroic Might if you have situational awareness. In GA, where it is far more chaotic and you have 19 other people on your team, this becomes far more difficult. Yes, Ani may top the leaderboard in a lot of matches, but my experience has been better balance overall. When they reduce the radius of HM and fix the damage reduction glitch for Obi, we could be approaching a truly balanced HvV mode for the first time in a very long time.

    Do all this to him and he will become nigh on useless! Taking away abilities too :joy: dream on fella
