Battle Point Event Heroes Unleashed

Another 2 days of full play. And still no matches won by DS

Prev1
DS wins 0 matches.

Every single match ends in anakin stopping the entire team in the first pr second phase.

Can the devs please just give us some form of communication of if you are ever going to try and re balance GA.

Cause if not ill just uninstall the game now. So please do let me know.

    I lost as the clones last night on Kashyyyk. We had an Anakin out.
  • So my apologies to wallofman cause that was not aimed at you
  • I win like half of my games as the DS.

    Well then perhaps you could do the community a solid and post a video turorial of how you manage to do that because im watching these forums like a hawk and it seems as though there is a huge majority of people calling out for some form of anakin fix.

    Im not saying he needs to he nerfed into the ground. But heroic might should be high risk high reward. It is not.

    Take off the 90% damage reduction and make the animation quicker. Dont have such a massive radius of effect. Make it basically a bit stronger than lukes repulse. Cause with luke if you hit repulse in the wrong place at the wrong time you get melted and you die.

    That should happen to anakin instead he stands there laughing and then jumps off to regen the 100 health he did lose... (saying that he probably gained 200 from HOK card...)

    I don't have some kind of special strategy to win as the DS. I just don't find Anakin to be game breaking. Maybe it's because I'm on PC and blaster heroes are stronger, but Anakin isn't even the best hero in the game for me. Bossk and Yoda are better IMO.

    PC is a different beast to console. If i had a mouse id kill it with lando. But we dont we have joy pads and on console anakin does break the game

    Actually, you can hit it in the right place in the right time and when it doesn’t detect the dude two feet away from you and he unloads into your cranium and you die that’s not actually fair. Luke should have that damage reduction.

  • I dont moan about any other hero or villain.

    I dont complain that grievous can 2 shot my heroes cause he has high risk high reward. Grievous can be taken out easily with an officer.

    Anakin is very different

    Haha well yeah the bugs weve known about for ages.

    I say strip all heroes of damage reduction. Theyre supposed to temporarily turn the tide of battle not make it unplayable.

    I say again for the millionth time not all players have the ability or will to party play and nor should a whole team have to gang up on a hero to deal with them. Any other hero can be taken out by any infantry easily. Anakin not so.

    If you’re team can’t rationalize to say, “Hey, that guys a high priority target, we should focus on killing him!” You only need about five players to kill Anakin, and that’s it. Your entire team doesn’t have to hang up on him, he’s just somewhat harder to deal with than others. If the blueberries can’t figure that out I would suggest playing with people who can.

    They do temporarily turn the tide. Well, at least Palps and Bossk and Anakin and Finn do, the rest are just harder to kill Infantry, some with glow sticks.

  • Which is why i will never complain about any other hero or villain. But anakin doesnt just change the tide of battle he ruins it.

    Nobody should be able to get 15 kills from one ability.

    As i said in a previous post i am not an amazing player i can get max of 25 killstreak with almost any other hero or villain. But even i got a 75 killstreak with ani on endor. Thats saying something.

    Anakins auto kill raised my game 3x.

    So what does that say?

    Anakin can only get that many if they shoot him, Luke can get that many by pressing LB.
    Ani probably tripled your kills because he’s a well functioning hero without janky abilities and all his cards are useful. Against trash tier opposition, then it’s pretty easy to reach Bossk and Palps numbers(Triple digits). Again, Anakin is a well functioning hero, and every other hero should be brought up to relevance.

    Its funny you say that cause im a recent convert to bossk and ive still only managed 25 or 30 lills with him

    So its not the abilities not being glitchy it is the absolute ridiculousness of heroic might.

    Remember also this game wasnt made so 1% of elite players can have tonnes of fun and toll the rest of us.

    Heroic might is only deadly if you can’t see the obvious as hell animation and decide to shoot him with anything other than a stinger pistol. If you are only getting 25-30 kills with Bossk, that might explain why Anakin is dominating you.

    These forums...huge majority.....you do realize theres probably only like 100-150 active people on here, if that (that's probably generous)? The playerbase is probably in double digit thousands overall, if not slightly more. So the people here barely scrape like 1% of the playerbase. In no way is that a majority.

    If 90% of a sample group of 1% are experiencing the same thing, it's safe to assume that close to 90% of the full group are also experiencing the same thing. It's basic statistics, and is used in many applications, such as the Nielsen ratings.

    Also, you are incorrect in saying that it is not a majority, because it IS a majority of users here that are saying the same thing. It's only a couple of people who keep defending Anakin.

    I know that the developers have a way to analyze the data from the GA matches, and if the people complaining were wrong, they could easily say that their data shows that this is not the case for the majority of matches, and that these people are just experiencing some kind of fluke. If they weren't so secretive and quiet and gave actual feedback to the community, we could know for sure, but I'm pretty confident in saying that the "complainers" are all correct, and this is why there is silence on the matter.
  • Yeah, I'm still trading wins in GA. If DS got a great team against a similar LS team, then they got a chance.

    ...Basically don't act like **** is the key to really pull a win.
  • Hm i'll just leave this here.

    smart Anakins stay back and dont play aggressively all you gotta do is stay back with a large group of your team mates and charge up retribution maybe going in and using heroic might every now and then and thats all you gotta do and once you get to phases were everyone is super grouped up like the last phase of Naboo and Kamino your retribution will be up about every 2 minutes if not less so the Anakin player can sit back and just wait for retribution to charge up and pop in and out and its GG no good team will save you from Anakin if he knows what hes doing all it takes is one single player that knows how to properly abuse him.

    Oddly enough to my frustration I rarely ran into a competent Anakin player.

    Last phase on Hoth and lost and it strangely wasn't from Anakin. Actually, the guy playing stupidly eat one too many bolts and actually died.

  • Everyone wins 50 percent of their matches, sounds par for the course in today's world. Just add a participation trophy to the challenges and we're all set.
  • I've had a few ds wins recently, tho a really good anakin usually causes problems. Some maps seem impossible - jakku 2nd phase for one.

    I think sometimes good players aren't choosing anakin on principle, and that's made for decent matches. I'm not a great player, but I refuse to use him as he's pure cheese at this point. I imagine others feel the same. Give me han every time.

    This doesn't mean I'm ok with him. I feel the quality of GA matches has tanked. I notice half the ls teams are leaving after the round ends, either cus they wont get to play ani or they dont want to face him. Its telling.

  • Guys, just relax, it is only a game!

    I've been playing BF 2017 since it released, and yes, Anakin is powerful.

    I am by no means an amazing player as I don't get time to slam hours a day into gaming.

    But, Anakin, to me, is just a powerful hero. That is it. We expected it. Some even wanted it. The DS were given GG and Dooku, and both are very powerful. GG in particular.

    I've not noticed the DS losing matches all the time....
  • Anakin actually ruin this game. He need a properly nerf to be in line with all the others. He is so powerful that even if you nerf him he will be anyway better then all the other because he have 4 abilities, so don't have fear to nerf him and rebalance this game!

    1 - I'd like to see that.

    Yeah unless he has retribution which is very likely. I can charge retribution like 5-10 times in a game as anakin and eveythone thinks yes we've killed anakin but oh no... he can push 1 button and send the entire tean back to the spawn screen lol
  • He only has 250 regen. The only way he really persists and recks an entire lobby is if you're stupid and unload into his heroic might each time. That's the primary way he heals, that and killing people who spawn useless villains like maul, boba, phasma, or Iden, all are basically free 120 HP to anakin and easily softened up by infantry for that retribution that'll one-shot them.

    I think the biggest problem here is that other Heroes aren't really up to par with anakin. They need buffs. It's bad enough on lightisde to where people won't spawn the second lightside hero until much later in the match, hoping anakin dies.

    I almost never see rey, finn, Lando, chewbacca, leia or Han until the Final phase. 75% of the time it's Kenobi, or yoda if people don't bother waiting. I think Kenobi's picked more often than not to role play with anakin, not because he's actually any good.

  • I played with a squad yesterday, killed about 5 Anakin's. Atleast 10 people have to be good on your team, if not you will get steamrolled

    Did you win the matches as the Dark Side though? We aren't arguing that he is unkillable, we are arguing that he is overwhelmingly breaking the focus of GA and just cause you can take down some Anakins (good for you) does not stop that last Anakin on the choke points from stopping everything and bring in an easy LS victory. And "at least 10 people have to be good on your team" is THE tactic?? Have you played Galactic Assault before?? Haha
  • I can honestly say that I have not seen the darkside win a GA match since Ani came out. Of course my teams are usually uncooperative killstreak seekers who never play the objective.
    Heroes are born on the battlefront... especially if you play the objective.
