  • That's a big nerf for Ani right there. Hopefully he will still be good 🤞

    Sadly this Anakin ''''nerf'''' will not resolve nothing of the actual problems with him.
    @F8RGE and @EA_Charlemagne I don't understand how you don't realize how much Anakin is destroying this game for everyone else. The principal problem is that Anakin has 4 ragdoll abilities and can just chain them together to get free kills (Villains included). Now that the block on the ground is gone this is even worse, also seen and considered how high the basic damage of Anakin saber + cards is. You need to do this if you want make him more balanced (and I don't know if that's enough, but in the meantime it would be a beginning) :

    - Remove the knock back from passionate strike (too easy use it on a villain and than decimate him with normal attacks)

    - Reduce base saber damage from 140 to 130 (he already have a card for increase the damage of 25!!)

    - Reduce the range of Pull Dominance (the combo of pull dominance + passionate strike is what make Anakin a nightmare vs the other villains, reducing the range of pull and removing the knock back from Passionate Strike that can allow Anakin to chain normal attacks for so long before the enemy can move, dodge or block will free the game from this shameful ''combo''. Anakin will be able to pull someone and hit with passionate but then the enemy will can block or dodge not being stunned once by passionate strike.

    - Put a cap of 300 damages on Retribution vs Villains and speed up the animation

    Guys I love this game and I understand your work but you really put the players to the test. How long will we have to wait to make this game playable again and see a character really balanced in the right way?

    Perfect. My thoughts exactly
  • Great job guys thank you! keep up!

    But ofc you don't realize that, cause you spend your time whining and crying about Anakin.
    What real destroy this game are casual players like you, who know nothing but dare talk.

    Congratulations, you’ve managed to say absolutely nothing. What are you, 12? “You’re so dumb?” Great insight.

    Anakin is OP by any measure you use. I see players all the time run into a group, use Heroic Might then run away, then repeat that cycle. It is impossible to win a one on one duel when you can’t block Passionate Strike and you are basically dead at that moment.

    Can't block it? So Dodge it then
  • Can you add a General Skywalker skin in the April update
  • If not the April update then a future update

    This Anakin nerf is pathetic. @F8RGE & @EA_Charlemagne pick up a dam controller for once and play your game!
    You removed palps when he was barely half as broken as Anakin.

    Since Anakin I've seen regular players which names I recognize absolutely dominate, when usually they can't survive more than a min or two with any hero/villain, these toxic little s*** emote on your body thinking they're actually good.

    Get rid of Passionate Strikes knockdown effect PLEASE!!! Its so annoying that Anakin has 4 ragdoll abilities and can just chain them altogether to get free kills. HVV IS UNPLAYABLE WITH ANAKIN THE WAY HE IS NOW!! All Anakin mains do nowadays is use their abilities and during the cool down they just run.

    You seriously need to get better. Anakin is far from invincible. I don't understand all of these Nerf Anakin threads when I can beat him with ease.

    That Anakin sucks fyi. As did the dooku in the following video.

    Complain complain.
    Just be happy this can't happen anymore

    And if they suck let's see how you do

    No selection for private matches you spoon.

    Something else, it even sucks playing on Anakins team, sometimes he dominates so much, that there is no one left to kill. The game becomes fun for one player only, in a lobby of 40 people ffs. This ain't gonna change.

    Don't need Private matches. Search for a match at the same time and you get put in the same match
  • Anakin's combos are what make him OP. Give Yoda and maul a block or three dodges like dooku. Add an ability to vader similar to retribution. Increase OWKs AOP window for increased "accuracy". Dooku is squishy like doodoo decrease dodges and increase resilience please. Grievous is...perfect..lol. Make palpatine do less base damage while increasing DA dmg or something. Luke, anakin and Kylo should do same saber dmg. Obi and rey should do slightly less dmg. Yoda should do the least (star card buff should sum up to most dmg). Iden, boba, finn(deadeye... goodbye?), chewie(minor dmg or spread tweak) and phasma specifically need to be balanced...again.


    Help us obi wan kenobi..you're our only hope.
  • Kylo has great Combos, Vader has great combos, Palpatine has great combos lots of heros have great combos. Not just Anakin. It's not some new concept for a hero to use multiple force powers/abilities together to do extra damage. I think in GA my teams and I took out 4 Anakins within the first few minutes he was deployed. Only one time in my 3 hours of playtime in GA yesterday did an Anakin get over 50 kills and that was on Endor with a crappy team that left them with over 90 tickets in phase 3.
  • we need a new mode for arcade content that entirely offline. please dice if u are listening give us what we as fans want.

    This doesn't fix the problem! I appreciate you guys listening to feedback, but these are the wrong changes. Anakin being overpowered stems from him being able to chain his abilities together and deal insane amounts of damage while the other player is locked in stuns and knockdowns, this isn't balanced!!!

    Remove the knockdown from passionate strike and retribution, because it's infuriating to be hit by passionate strike and be unable to move for a good 2 seconds, meaning skill can't help you since you can't even move.

    Anakin may be the 'Chosen One' but so is Darth Vader, and he doesn't have four abilities that knock you off your feet. I also don't understand why he does more lightsaber damage and has more health than everyone else, at least tone it down slightly and increase Vader's health back to 1000.

    I was really excited for this hotfix because I thought it would correct the issues plaguing Anakin right now, but these are not the changes that were needed.

    To give an example, against a Boba Fett, Anakin can pull him out of the sky, use heroic might, passionate strike and hit him once, killing him without allowing any room for a response from the other player.

    But everyone applauds that he can do that to Boba, because everyone always has to hate on Boba, because they don't have the skill to play as him. And then they wonder why Boba "runs" when Anakin is anywhere near him and isn't engaged with somebody else. Anakin just promotes more Boba players to "run" in HvV. It's not really even running, it's just trying to actually stay out of Anakin's pull range, which is ridiculously far.
  • Firstly, thanks for the CS spawn and crash fix.
    But boyyyyyyyy
    I am so disapointed about the anakin nerf, a minor tweak to the numbers wont balance him how many times!
    The problem was never his damage he was inteded to be a fast and hard hitter no?
    So why is he also a tank with 1000hp? That needs cutting down for a start.

    His problems lie in his what i now call "cheat abilities". His 360° Aoe abilites are the real issues you NEED to acknowledge this.

    Heroic might is getting a needed damage nerf but where the hell is the radius nerf?? It is a very lazy ability that requires no aiming or tactics to use.
    All it takes is for 1 or 2 noobs to shoot you and you have an instant killstreak going and the enemy team is dead lol its kinda boring using it and just dreadful being in the receiving end of it but pales in comparison to his "ultimate ability".

    Retribution IS the main problem imo.
    Like HM this ability requires no aiming or skill to use, just jump into a crowd of enemies or wait until villans arent blocking and hit retribution for an instant win.
    You cannot anticipate this ability because there is no pre animation before the ability activates, it is instant so the only thing you can do to stay safe is hide or cower behind your block in fear of anakins "ultimate".
    The radius is also insanely big for how powerful the ability is.
    The amount of time you are suspended in the air in the choke animation is way too long if even 1 trooper is shooting at you during this time you are dead from full health villan or not.

    Pull dominance and Pasionate strike arent bad at all i do not understand why you felt the need to nerf them. The ACTUAL PROBLEM is that all 4 of anakins abilities can be used in combos and very regularly too because of the fast cooldowns.
    All 4 of anakins cc abilities combined = OP MESS

    These short clips prove what i am saying and ive been very particular about which ones i chose as to offer an unbiased opinion and if you cannot see that Anakin is OP from them then you are deluded.





    Also retribution can be activated WHILST TAKING DAMAGE...

    It's kind of hard to dodge when his pull ragdolls you and lays you in his lap where you can't even control your character until after you get hit.

    Passionate strike will probably still need to be looked at. He'll still be able to combo people to hell. Otherwise though this is a good hotfix.

    I'm not against removing the passionate strike knockdown. Maybe it could still break through the block, but instead of leaving the player completely vulnerable via knockdown it could instead disable block for a few seconds or something similar? That way you can still dodge and not get insta-killed.

    Maybe another solution could be to increase the distance PS knocks you back. You'd still be vulnerable, but not close to Anakin and you'll have time to recover before he reaches you. This would also incentivize using the pull after the strike which requires a bit more skill than pull then strike.

    That still doesn't fix the fact that Anakin has 4 stun abilities, FOUR. After the community has complained for over a year about the stuns in the game DICE still gives their new hero FOUR STUNS! How ridiculous is that?! The knockdown effect on Passionate Strike NEEDS to be removed entirely, like you said they could make it to where you can't block for awhile or something like that but I tell you I have had enough of Anakin chaining all his stuns to get free kills.

    Not only that. His force abilities don't require any aiming at all! All three are just circles around him with no skill required! Dooku has to spend an entrire card to widen his already narrow lightening, etc. Yoda must aim, and Kyle, etc. And he is almost the tankiest character. With most damage per swing of his saber. How does DICE not see the way that Anakin ruins most games he's in? Do they play the game? Still disappointed that he will continue to ruin games.

    really sorry but this nerf is disappointing as hell.
    i really hoped for anakin to be properly nerfed
    which means
    1000 hp ---> 800 hp WITH max star cards
    170 dmg per swing --> 140 dmg per swing with star cards
    retribution remove it or make dmg from 400 to 150-200 and duration 2 sec with a charge time of 0.5 sec
    passionate strke shouldnt knock down
    heroic might needs a strong dmg nerf to 200 dmg max cap
    i really hope you reconsider your values and atleast look into my suggestion
    because i play this game a lot and i would say i understand the mechanics of this game.

    Completely agree with this post. It's not casuals who want Anakin fixed. It's committed players who find him terrible, whether on his team or against it.

    Hey Everyone,

    It’s always a nervous time within the team when a big new piece of content leaves the safety of the team and finds its way into your hands. We always felt that Capital Supremacy was shaping up to be a great addition to Star Wars™ Battlefront II and we’ve been really happy with the feedback we’ve had so far.

    In this hot fix we’ve got some changes going live that will address game stability. One of the biggest issues we’ve been targeting has been when you find yourself stuck on the deploy screen within the second phase transition of Capital Supremacy.

    We’ve added some fail-safes which we believe will lower the risk of this from happening and will be monitoring the situation closely.

    The AI in Capital Supremacy is a brand-new system and is located online, or server side. We believe they were causing some of the crashes we were seeing and have added some fixes we believe should address this.

    Anakin Skywalker has had a minor balancing pass, affecting the damage and cooldown values of his abilities. We felt that while being the Chosen One, he needed some minor changes in order to try and bring balance.

    Reception to the new reinforcements has been really good and we’ve got some tweaks that are being included based on your feedback. We’ve lowered the damage slightly of Power Blast while raising the end damage of the E-5.

    As always, please do keep your feedback coming.

    The Star Wars Battlefront II Team
    • Added fail-safe scripts to reduce the chances of unreactive spawning when transitioning between Ground and Capital Ship phases in Capital Supremacy. Additional server logging has been implemented to further diagnose spawning issues.
    • Added tentative fixes for online AI causing server crashes on Capital Supremacy.
    • Fixed a rendering issue that would occasionally cause the client to crash.
    • Balanced damage and cooldown values for Anakin’s abilities:
    • Reduced Retribution choke damage (86->75 points per second)
    • Reduced Retribution push damage (80->75 points per second)
    • Reduced Passionate Strike first damage (50->40)
    • Reduced Passionate Strike last damage (150->130)
    • Increased Passionate Strike cooldown (12->13)
    • Reduced Heroic Might base damage (100->70)
    • Balanced damage values for Infiltrator weapons:
    • Lowered Power Blast damage (150->140) to prevent One-Hit Kills against Assault, Officer & Specialist
    • Raised E-5 end damage (21->30) to increase the weapon's effective range
    • Fixed an issue where players who join an ongoing match would occasionally get no audio during the boarding cinematic in Capital Supremacy.
    • Fixed an issue that would prevent the ARC Trooper from gaining progress when playing on Phase 1 maps (Kamino and Geonosis - Trippa Hive).
    • Fixed an issue where Darth Maul’s Choke Hold ability would occasionally be inaccurately activated from a distance when being used at the same time as another Hero's ability.
    • Fixed an issue that prevented players from completing the Scoped achievement when playing as a Specialist, when fulfilling the criteria against AI on Capital Supremacy.
    • Fixed an issue where Rey and Finn’s ability UI for the Insight and Undercover abilities would not always be fully visible.
    • Revised the ping color of the ARC Trooper’s Helmet Scanner ability for consistency.
    • Fixed an issue where Geonosians would occasionally be seen flying through the ground on Geonosis - Pipeline Junction West.

    Excellent. The new mode and Infiltrators are fantastic, and you and your team should feel proud. (Not to mention the LS combat changes, which are fun).

    Some good changes, but now the Y axis inversion is broken for ground vehicles. I have the option turned on, but armored vehicles and speeders are aiming in the same vertical direction that I push the stick. I'm on PS4. Also, we need bigger credit payouts for CS.

    You gotta stop posting videos of low skilled Anakin's that you have killed. Try countering him at the various different choke points that this game gives us. If the Anakin is good you won't. And anyway there's always a full health Anakin waiting to take dead Anakin's place.
  • I'm sick of people complaining about Anakin. If you are constantly getting ragdolled by him in HVV, you need to adapt your play style. You need to block or dodge his abilities. You need to play as a team and take him on together.

    Everyone got used to dominating as Dark Side, and now that they need to play smart, they'd rather cry for nerfs than strategize.

    Yes, Anakin has a mean combo, but if you block/dodge the initial pull, you can avoid it. The cool down is the best way to address Ani because using up all three abilities in a combo to kill one player is a dumb move--because once he's abilities are gone he's pretty easy to take out. This is why you need to work on blocking and dodging him.

    Enough with the nerfs. Try asking better players for advice on how to improve.

    Galactic Assault exists btw. Play it for a bit, then say Anakin is fine.
  • It sucks. My kids, who I play with, today told me "It's not worth playing with Anakin like this."

    Goodbye BF2. Hello Borderlands Game of the Year Edition for PS4.
  • So anakin can still OHK an entire room while receiving 90% damage reduction, which is basically damage immunity

    and he can stil OHK heroes with his knockdown combo abilities ...

    It looks like I wont be playing the game for a while

    Totally agree, this damage immunity is the biggest problem. It should be 50% at most. You shouldnt be able to just jump in the middle of an entire team and walk away with more health than ya started with.

  • I feel like only the player who refuse to change are on this forum complaining about Anakin. HVV is my main gamemode and Anakin is very killable. He cant combo anything if you simply know when to block, and passionate strike can be dodged with a dash. I made Anakin my main for a while to learn his fighting style, and now once you know what to look for he's not a problem; usually palpatine is a harder enemy due to his long range and quick dashes.
    Can you be insta killed by Anakin as a trooper? Yes, but so can you by any other competent hero aswell. Can you be insta killed by Anakin as a Villian? No, not if you pay attention and know your character, and his.

    Just get rid of Retribution completely. The problem with Anakin's abilities is not necessarily the damage (though his abilities do deal too much damage), but the fact that all 4 of them stun, rag doll or incapacitate an enemy.

    This breaks HvV. Getting caught in Retribution allows LS blaster heroes to literally walk up to you and blast you to death while you're immobilised for 5 seconds.

    Get rid of Retribution; no hero should have 4 abilities while the others have 3. Also replace Heroic Might with a lightsaber throw, then Anakin will be balanced.
  • Uninstalling after 1100 hours because Anakin ruins this game. Every game is the same now, Anakin dominating.

    I sincerely hope to see news one day that Anakin is properly nerfed so that we don't have this monotone gameplay.

    You are unistalling a game that you have devoted 45 entire days of your life to, an 8th of an entire year of your life, because other players get the top spot with a certain character? Or because you are tired of seeing the same character in the top spot? Anakin is an outlier, the last thing he does is make gameplay monotone. I'm much more excited to fight heros because of players who assume they are OP as Anakin and don't use actual tactics.

    Ok, so Anakin can hit you through walls.
    Please console player, just stop writing stuff, cause you play another game and you know nothing about battlefront II.

    I have yet to see anything you say have reasons or thoughtful engagement. You sound like a petulant 9 year old.

    What the hell do you Anakin defenders don't understand ? Can you use common sense instead of your fanboyism ?

    You guys are literally killing this game.

    Anakin has saved HvV. Darkside destroyed in that mode until Anakin arrived. The mode was dying and now it's fun again.

    Yes he is op and he is annoying, but so was meeting Vader, Boba, Iden and Dooku before the Chosen One.

    adding more words for the edit machine

    so how is this to blame it on ani a low Luke getting hit by grevious some way....
    seems he his him (Ani) and you you so low HP you die simple
  • hmm cant edit last one 1 TypO

    seems he HIT him (Ani) and you(luke) you so low HP you die simple before HM was released fleeing grevious
  • My opinion . This game is screwed. There is no way they can fix it. Too many glitches. New content is awesome. Great. Love it. But I can't do an ability if I'm grievous. I can't push with luke. I get choked 3x times by maul. But I can't choke if I am maul. I can't get a kill if I'm palpatine. Oh. I never get to play as Ani.

    If you're replaced 'Sand' in that sentence with 'Clone Wars' it would be very accurate. 😂😂
