Doesn’t make sense having him available in HvV as long as Anakin is here.

Anakin is picked in literally E V E R Y game anyway.

Make Maul great again.

  • They should get rid of his light saber throw and make that his block
    Or just give him a fourth ability like Anakin and that could be his block

  • I don't think we should the devs to remove content from a game that is in desperate need of any content. Especially a dark side hero. They need every hero they can get nowadays in the Age of Ani.
    Heroes are born on the battlefront... especially if you play the objective.

  • meh hes still useful on maps were you can knock people off the map and hes useful when the enemy team has at least 2 blaster users.

    Which practically NEVER happens. Great.

    Also they could have 3 blaster heroes & 1 anakin alone would make him obsolete.

    as far as push maps go I get Bespin and Kashyyyk a lot and 2 blasters might be less common then it used to be but it still happens and no a single Anakin is not going to lessen the effectiveness of Maul vs 3 blasters.

  • What? Ever since Anakin came out I have only really been playing Boba & Maul in HVV both of which are supposedly useless since the Chosen One update. And 9/10 I am in the top 3 and 10/10 times in the top 5 with those. Don't be foolish enough to 1v1 Anakin from close up and you're fine.
  • The one problem with Maul is that his spin lost it’s advantage. A block could be added, but it should not at the expense of his abilities.

  • If you aren't playing him to cheese ledge throws then yeh, he is pretty useless.

    You obviously just dont know how to play him, or arent very skilled with basic lightsaber combat. If you play maul right, no one should ever hit you or come close to you if you dont want them to...

    This, he is like extra lifes in HvV and destroy blaster heroes, someone skilled will be untouchable againts 2 saber heroes, just Anakin it’s able to hurt him.
    It’s people that are noob that think this game is just saber smashing.

    YES I KNOW THAT - but Anakin is in EVERY game so what’s your point?

  • He is pretty useless currently, but I see no reason to remove him. Just buff Maul in the March update this week and nerf Anakin.

    It's not just Anakin, but people run all-Jedi in HvV more than anything on Xbox which practically voids Maul by design.
    Man! Could this game get any more broken?

    "Trained hands"... Maul sucks, every hero can cancel his spin attack (the ability that would balance him) with a simple saber strike, even Yoda, and stun lock him right in that place to finish the job. He should be untouchable while spinning.

    That "trained hands" guy maybe is just playing against untrained opponents.

    Thank you.

    Maul is perfectly fine I have no problem killing lightsaber heroes with maul, he’s the most balanced character, the only thing that needs to be changed is Anakin
    Clone201 wrote: »

    I Disagree...

    The most balanced hero in the game would be a hero that can either stay on par or quickly defeat any type of enemy, whether it would be a blaster wielder or lightsaber wielder without being overpowered or underpowered against either.

    When Maul has such a wide gap between his strengths and weaknesses against the other heroes, he isn't the 'most balanced':

    He moderately excels against blaster wielders.

    He absolutely sucks against against lightsaber wielders, with the single exception of Yoda. They play smart, Maul can't fight...

  • You just dont know how to play him.

    There's two ways to play Maul right now in HvV: die by Anakin or run forever.

    So that leaves constantly respawning players or runners. Maul has always been the HvV Champion Runner but now people are straight using him and keeping ROUNDS going for 5-10 minutes.

    People who abuse Maul are the worst: they are either dying or running constantly. Their own teammates usually leave the game first, followed by the opposing team when the running gets REALLY bad.
  • Still hoping he gets his block finally in this update otherwise he is definitely useless
  • If he gets a block he needs a slight speed or dodge nerf. Sick of chasing Maul players. They're worse than Boba.

    Darth Maul (ingame) has always been intended as a Glass Cannon hero. :neutral:

    Due to the Target System that translates to: Glass Cannon Marathon Runner

    It's boba who is the champion runner in HvV especially on geonosis all boba players do there is go right up into the cliffs so that no one can get near them and fire down rockets

    Sooo, just because he's bad now he should be disabled. Hahaha. Why? I agree he should be buffed or at least get blocking. He's defenseless against Anakin abilities.

    On the contrary - I find Maul to be my best counter to Anakin, because his agility lets him get out of the way quickly when Anakin tries to use his powers. Then while they're recharging, wear him down with spin attacks and hit and run strikes. I never used to play Maul much, but he's getting new found respect from me.

    you must be fighting some really garbage Anakins lmao Maul is a joke to Anakin.

  • I think because of the lightsaber duel changes he will be able to block

    Wishful thinking I fear, knowing this games Dev team track record, Because the whole (Maul can’t Block) conundrum was stated by DICE (or someone that spoke on their behalf) as “Intentional” to His design

    While I do agree with your statement, it has to be noted that technically Maul is weaker than Anakin, although not directly countered. That falls to Obi-Wan & Rey. What makes the difference here is your experience with the character, wich lets you best Anakin, even though he is the superior character. Some would call that skillful gameplay on your part, while others blame "garbage" opponents.

    Come within sight of me, or any competent player, as Anakin and I promise you'll be dead or one-shot and running away within 5 seconds.
  • Darth Maul has a complete block now, and it’s not a weak one either. It really is finally all over.

  • I’m confused why he never had a block to begin with like y’all never seen the Phantom Menace? He was blocking gin and Obi-wans lightsaber strikes it’s not like he was dodging it like they got him doing in the game lol

    There is on the official light saber update thread in this forum.

    Maul has block ratings for saber & blaster now. So it’s official.

    Such a huge change to the character and there is no direct mention of him having a block or the change to his abilities at all? Doubt. His name on a chart can just as easily be an oversight. Id wait and see. But it is rather odd that each hero with a significant change (or even a small one) got a section and mention and yet Maul didnt at all.
  • Not sure about him having a block. I imagine it’s a typo on the devs behalf… what you saying devs? Devs…? De…

    Erm, I guess you will be very dissapointed tomorrow, because as far as I can see in the patch notes, Maul is not having a block, at least this update (maybe in future updates). A thing so important as changing a game mechanic for a character giving him a block must have been mentioned somewhere, and nope, no mention to it.
