    Because at the moment people would rather see Four blue lightsabers vs 3 red and one green and blue lightsabers.

    Probably all left to play Apex.
  • I've levelled all the ones I like, although I still pick them if the scenario calls for it for example bossk on the turbo tanks. If not I'm concentrating on getting my glow stick guys to 40
  • Blaster heroes are gone now after Anakin update, their blasters and stuns are nerfed to the ground.
  • Cause now it doesn’t matter the tactics you use, the direction you roll, how much are you or your lightsaber hero opponent skilled, you’ll still get your **** burned by a lightsaber. This game is “Spam R2 to win” now.
    Anyway, I still pick blaster heroes, but they aren’t enjoyable anymore, not like it used to be
  • Han is one of my top 3 hero's to play.
  • Some people still do, but many people want to play as saber characters. They are just so iconically Star Wars.

  • If Han is available, I'll pick him over any other blaster hero. I mostly play GA, and I prefer the mobile playstyle of Saber Heroes. However, if I have to destroy an MTT or AT-AT, I'm picking Han, because Sabers aren't gonna cut it.
    We need a Tier System for the Heroes. It would justify the "op-ness" of Vader over Han and Chewbacca. It would cost much more to unlock Vader, and would require you to save a lot more than for other heroes and vehicles, but it would be rewarding in the end...

    Stun nerfs decreased their viability against saber users that can block and dodge their way in for the kill.

    But it is still good to have at least one blaster hero in HvV! More than one and you are likely in for trouble.

    Trust me, pre-Anakin and pre-magnetic sabers, a 4 blaster (w/ Lando, Han, and Chewie + one more) LS team in HvV could do a lot of damage against a 4 saber DS team.

    Light side. Dark side still good due their mobility.
  • because saber comps for the light side is actually better atm then the old meta of 2 blasters 2 sabers seeing how you can now just rag doll anyone in range to death as for the dark side the blaster heroes on the dark side just get murdered hard now with all the rag dolling at least sabers heroes can block some of it besides Maul who is trash tier right now.

    Here ya go Hero guys. Rules should take care of exploits and the casual B—-S.
  • I still see a lot of blaster players, mainly Iden/Phasma/Boba and Han/Lando/Chewie. However, I am seeing a lot more 4v4 saber matches, until a DS teams starts getting beat then someone gets Boba and starts flying around the map.

    Stunlock, rag doll, low health, most probably.

    Damn reading through this forum, it's genuinely nuts how badly they handled this game.
    Seems to be a distinct trend

    For the Light-Side Blaster Heroes are perhaps more viable then ever due to Anakin obliterating everything that comes close to them. A good Leia or Han pot-shotting Sabers while they try to stay alive from Anakin is pretty much golden for the entire match

    For the Dark Side it is the opposite unless your running Phasma, Boba or you just got really good Bossk game-play (which however still comes at the cost of feeding Anakin). Taking a blaster hero on the DS is now a guaranteed multi target loss due to Anakin and the 4-man Saber Hero spam that has infested and ruined HVV

    You just really can't last more then 2 assaults max before you die and too often you get hit with all 3 sabers

  • Personally, the DS blasters just aren’t fun to play as right now. I have all my DS lightsaber heroes at purples (also Iden at purples), but levelling up Bossk, Boba, Palps, and Phasma in HvV just isn’t as fun as levelling up the DS lightsaber heroes to max (especially post-Anakin). Boba can still be fun on open maps (he is invincible on Geonosis), but I am not a pro-Boba player.
    On the LS, I have Rey, Luke, Obi-Wan, Lando, and Han at purples, and am currently upgrading Anakin, the LS blaster heroes can be more fun to play than the DS blaster heroes, but it seems that every match these days turns into a lightsaber spam fest.

    Iden can still wreck too as long as you are making an effort to avoid the pull-PS wombo combo

    agree on the LS point tho. Super easy to just follow Anakin around and shoot in the back whatever he aggros/CC's.
