Please explain to me why a character this overpowered was allowed to remain in a game and ruin nearly every match for this amount of time.

Palpatine, who was never as broken as Anakin, was kill switched less than 24 hours after his lightning got a little out of hand. But he never had 1000hp, 90% damage reduction, two room clearing abilities, the highest damage output or the best combo abilities.

Anakin has single handedly ruined this game for me. I'm sick to death of seeing everyone rush to pick him ASAP. I have not played a single match since he was released where someone has NOT picked him!!!

He should have been kill switched an hour after his initial ridiculous state. Gradually slightly nerfing him over 2 months was not the solution. He should have been removed and then re-released when he was not 4X better than all the other heroes.

I just have to vent my frustration because it needs to be made clear that this character has completely destroyed every mode he's playable in.

    I actually had a few games in hvv where no one picked him.
  • Sadly they said he won't be kill switched under any circumstances
  • Who is this Anakin?
  • Maybe they are trying to increase player counts in the non hero modes. Insert it's working gif here.
  • I really think the problem is he's fine in hvv and they dont have a clue what to do about the other modes.

    This by itself proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that he is OP. You can not say this about any other character, LS or DS. He is the ONLY one that is ALWAYS picked in HvV.

    Had to have been during the 2x XP weekend and people were leveling up their heroes, and everyone on the team must have been noobs as well, that didn't know better. Still surprised nobody was smart enough to pick him though, although I have to give that team props for actually wanting to play with a challenge, if that is why nobody picked him, although I highly doubt it.
  • Well, I mean at least the Light Side is winning! Right?

    Yeah, Darkside has nothing, only person who comes close is Dooku, and even he has a very hard time. I would honestly rather see Darkside buffs first. People like Grievous and Vader, also Phasma. Luke needs something as well.

    Dooku is not really a good counter for Anakin or LS in particular. He is more of a solo duelist kind of villain and i wouldnt pick him in a competetive 4v4 HvV match. Best bet is Iden or Phasma, Vader, Palpa and Kylo. Need good CC's in teamfights. When they remove the knockdown from PS and give Maul a block, then matches will become more balanced ( Boba and Maul can be viable again).

    Nah, I’ve fought a comp like that with Han, Ani, Obi and Rey and that comp doesn’t work very well. RMT on the two blasters and pull into Passionate into AOP, and usually dead by then. They can’t sneak up because of insight, and Han and Rey can disrupt their Sabers. It just isn’t a good counter.

    Killswitching is only okay when the broken asset does NOT use a Lightsaber.

    Evidently.

    The fact is that if you're running it's because you suck, and the game shouldn't pander to players who suck.

    Also let's not forget... the "Chosen One's" children did this.

    Hahaha ... FACT... I haven't touched Galactic Assault since early March. Heroes vs. Villains I havent touched since the first weekend after Anikan's release. There is no "Paper, Rock, Scissors" counter to him. You have absolutely nothing you can do against him as an Infantry player.

    He'snowhere near a balanced asset, and it feels like cheating when you have him... it's not fun for me to use him ... and its infuriating to go up against him.

    If an Anakin loses to an Iden or a Phasma, he deserves to be loser of the YEAR.

    I've lost to a Phasma as Anakin. True story :(

    Picked a good spot with the droid and knew how to roll and time bursts with droid shocks. It was humbling.

    Dang, well, I haven't ever lost to a Phasma 1v1, especially not 1v1 with Anakin. all you have to do is bait the rolls, and if she isn't falling for the bait block the shots back at the droid.

    What can I say. Start running 2saber, 2blaster comps and stick together. Anakin is less of a pain when there's someone who can CC him and the blasters can bring him down.

    He's going for Iden? Vader chokes him. Everyone gangs up. He's dead.

    He's fighting another saber?

    Lol, hold block and let the blasters shoot him.

    And same for the LS. (Yes. Shocker, imagine that. It really did work pre-Anakin too)

    I always do that when I use Vader. It feels so good choking him.
  • I am loving Capital Supremacy, only thing that ruins it is anakin.

    any half decent player hit and runs with him to (a) clear an aobjective or (b) an entire room. You can do this time and time again and rack up 200+ kill streaks.

    Its a F-ing joke

    pull dominance is ok but the rest of his abilities are so far OP its crazy.

    Completely agree with you he ruins this game. Once he is KS or completely reworked the game suffers.

    Other than anakin the game is in a great spot. Dont get me wrong there are still things that need changing but overall a lot has been done over the past 15 months since launch and I feel this is being ruined by anakin.

    Oh that. We all knew he was beyond broken in that mode already. Doubly so now that there is no lockdown timer when you kill one.

    Bring out the Stingers. Everyone will still die, but you'll take him with you.

    That is a ludicrous suggestion... so it just fills the lobby with an annoying Damage Over Time Pistol. Everyone getting burn damage... not just Anikan. It turns the lobby into a Troll lobby. There NEEDS to be a solid counter to Anikan in Galactic Assault or Capital Supremacy other wise it just turns into an annoyance lobby with Stinger Pistols. It's ridiculous and when Palps was at his OPness High it wasnt this bad and I didn't feel or hear ant opposition to his kill switching... and Palps wasnt as bad as Anikan currently.

    When you really think about it. The whole Skywalker family is messed up.
    Anakin himself is an orphan: little orphan Ani, I like to call him. :)
  • Every time I try to play this game I’m reminded of how much Anakin has destroyed it. It is pathetic.

    I hope we get a deep dive community transmission apology/explanation as to what mind boggling **** decisions led to him being released in this state.

    We already know why.

    ... and, no. Stinger pistols are not the answer to killing little orphan Ani.

    On the big maps of GA Geonosis and Kashyyyk, grab a tank and look for the bouncing blue light saber. Aim and fire.
    Forget about objectives. You're one and only objective is to watch that whiney weasel of a hero bounce and run and hide from your tank fire as he always does. If you die from ARC trooper fire.. sucks.. go grab another tank. If you keep that little blue saber bouncing around off in the distance, you've done your job. And there is nothing as satisfying as getting the white "X" to pop up on the screen and hearing the distant sobs of a teen boy somewhere on the far side of the internet.

    Stinger pistols .. hah.. seriously.

    Phasma is pretty good against Ani, with good positioning amd dodges she can come on top.

  • Honestly, it's psychologically comforting to see that other people recognize how much Anakin has ruined the game. I love this game, and don't like whiners. And yet, I would love to just sit down with the developers where they would actually answer and ask them "what were you thinking exactly?"

    Landos power blast deal lasted for like 3 months.

    And they even said it was a bug. And it got to keep going anyway.

    However with Anakin you have two choices. These developers are completely incompetent or they completely don't care. Maybe it's both.

    The number of times in the last game I said that, do they live test any of this? In fact it got to the point where former community managers even said that it was difficult, nie aimpossible, to real-world live test (actual servers). Which is just a complete ridiculous thing to say.

    But to your point Anakin was done on purpose. So incompetence or they don't care
