This game was ruined far before anakin arrived.

Anakin is just the straw that broke the camel's back. Terrible map design that heavily favor the lightside, better reinforcements, wookies being better than heroes, wookies having 800 health with finn's 50% damage reduction, yoda & Finn cheese, choke points, & Rey wall hack cheese. Darth Vader can hit a wookie buffed yoda & Finn 7 times & that wookie can still have 300 health. Tell me that's balanced. This game has never been balanced in a single mode that includes heroes. Capital supremacy would still favor the light side as well bossk, dooku, general 2 second block grevious, & maul can't beat yoda & 610 arc troopers, 800 health wookies , 400 health jet troopers & regular troopers. Would you have a better chance sure but to say or think anakin ruined the game is just beyond wrong.

    Despite your best attempt, this will deteriorate into another nerf Anakin thread.

    Yeah this is just for those players who think anakin ruined this game or is the cause of the current state
  • Anakin nerf!

  • Well, the difference was that most people didn’t play Finn because no real killstreaks and I guess people don’t find winning fun. Anakin is picked way more because he’s guaranteeing the LS wins and gets a high killstreak. I would rather fight Finn and the previous Wookies than a good Anakin at this point. At least then I got a chance at killing Finn, a good Anakin only dies if he overextends.

    That Specialist rework was disappointing.

    "With all of that, you never felt like it was impossible to win (or lose) until Anakin dropped. It was fun and exciting still. "

    Exactly this.

    @Thechosen1_anakin when it comes to Finn-Yoda combo, you're kinda right, but you rarely saw them together on the battlefield. People tend to pick their favourite heroes or those who are fun to play. Ofc you can win every match with YodaFinn, but it's not a big issue when people use them together very rarely.

    On the contrary, people use Anakin every goddamn time he's available. No timer, 4000 bp in PT and OT and Anakin's OPness make the game unplayable.

  • Gotta agree bro, the sheer amount of spam/cheese/randomness, bad map design that doesn’t encourage skill based gameplay, and just the overall extrem casual nature has ruined this game long ago.

    I wish Anakin was never in this game. I noticed several issues with Darkside factions on certain maps and it was that they either increased BP cost of vehicles and reinforcements, the constant spamming of bounty hunter card by officers, and of course...The cancerous Wookie Warriors, Yodas, and Anakins rebuffing themselves with super charged sentries from heavies as well. GA is beyond ruined for all Darkside factions.
  • They will nerf Retribution, reduce health buff from Presence, give Maul a block, remove knockdown on PS, maybe fix the glitch where ARC blasters shoot twice resulting in double damage, further hero balancing that we are not aware of ( hopefuly), will maybe tip the balance a bit toward Darkside ( just maybe).

    I hope so.

  • This game was already a mess for sure, but Anakin made it into a full on train wreck. This isn't exactly the "hardest" game to play but for the most part, most of the heroes outside of Anakin required at least a little bit of thinking. Anakin has 4 abilities and all 4 with cc. Getting hit by one of them pretty much results in your death because they're so easily chained with the opposing player being able to do little about it. Couple this with troopers or other heroes on your head, you're going to die 9/10. I don't think I have played a game (if I have, it's been many years) where one character completely destroyed every single game mode he is playable in. 3 abilities with cc would have been bad enough with the amount of HP he's given along with the damage he's also given. but 4? and the last one being the ultimate panic button? Two of them having a 360 radius? Why not just give him spirit bomb while you're at it? Something has to give. As much as I would love to see Retribution outright removed, I'll be a realist and say it won't be (as much as it should be) and say that he's probably going to be seeing the nerf hammer for the next few months. What's funny is that, no amount of nerfing is going to be enough to balance him. lol I've also seen arguments about Boba having 4 abilities, Boba is annoying but completely beatable his concussion rocket is pretty garbage and his primary fire is mediocre at best. Anakin is a Nba player playing with middle school basketball players at it stands right now.

    It was bad, now its nearly unplayable. I have started playing strike, that's how bad it is. The outcome cannot be predetermined and still be fun, at least not for me.

    And yet somehow I still enjoy all modes

    Not really. If a good player had yoda or yoda & Finn you're not winning.

    this is true, the buffs from Yoda and Finn on troopers are a cancer for the balance but Devs are actually looking at it thanks to the force.

    It's still playable to me. Whether I'm darkside or lightside.
    Galactic assault as kylo


    Capital supremacy as the droids no bots gameplay. 6 minute video of a 40 minute game. Had a legit 111 kill game with 150 elimination. We lost but to say it's unplayable shows what's wrong with the player base. I have fun regardless of the mode.



    A HvV game where we were down 3 to 7 & won as darkside. So that's HvV, GA & CS I've shown. Modes are still playable & fun. All depends on the skill of the player

    I still enjoy all gamemodes besides GA. Anakin is pretty annoying in HvV but I can handle him there myself most of the time.
