Rey’s new card is beyond a joke

I think Rey’s new starcard might be a contender for the worst card in the game.

An extra dodge but less stamina??? Stamina is WAY more important than dodging to saber heroes.

Obviously we don’t know the exact values but JESUS that’s gonna be a bad card.

    At least I have a free slot for her now that the HoK are becoming passive, I think I’m gonna fill it with opportunist in HvV and with far sight in GA
  • Agreed, my new GA loadout will be:
    - Focused Sight (being off radar, more damage and wall hacks for longer is better obviously)
    - Damaging Strike (one shoting Assault, Officers and Specialist is super useful)
    - Either Far Sight (for long range maps) or more likely Resilient Dash (great for escaping or preserving health when charging a group)

    Obi Wans more damage on deflected def. rush blaster fire is 10x worse.
  • Yeah, Dooku has proved that an extra dodge isn’t very valuable. Rey’s best asset is her stamina, she has Insight which reduces stamina usage by 50% and she has the fastest stamina regen in the game. Not sure why you would ever want to give up stamina for an extra dodge.

    Seems like she has a lot of stamina to give some up for another dodge.

    Actually it might prove useful when using mindtrick. She will have an edge with that extra dodge even against a saber. That extra dodge might prove valuable to allow her to position herself to backstab.
    Also blaster villains will be an easier target. She can hit, dodge, hit dodge, be really evasive.

  • Yeah its definitely not worth sacrificing stamina for an extra dodge. Han Dooku and Grievous new cards are pretty worthless cards in my opinion to. I'd say dumbest card in the game though goes to Lando for his thicker smoke card.
  • To be honest I wanted her to have extra health regen card.
  • To be honest I wanted her to have extra health regen card.

    Me too. I was hoping for that.

    Rey is one of the best heroes to turn the tide of a GA match. She may not have the highest killstreaks, but Rey wins games.

    Thank you! Why do people not like her? Her insight reveals all enemies to her teams, she has high swing speed and heavy amount damage. I just dont get it

    She is great in GA. But in HvV not so much. It has to do with her lackluster starcards and nerfed Dash strike.

    Rey may have become borderline overpowered if she wasn’t already.

    Many players seem to struggle with this so imma just say it. There is more than 1 mode in this game. What you think is good in GA is trash in HvV.

    Well those are the two main modes people play her on. There's difference between heavy damage strike and damage output. Her swing speed, dodge ability and increased damage damage when using insight( which can last up to 22 seconds mind you and is only on a 10 second cooldown) makes her a beast

    I cant take you serious after this.

    Rey’s Mind Trick may be one of the most broken abilities in HvV. Rey easily gets behind you to deal massive damage, and you can’t turn around to defend yourself. If not, you can try jumping, blocking or dodging away, which can help, but there are 3 other LS heroes to deal with that you are probably gonna die.

    Even with out Insight, Rey spamming R2 is broken in itself, as if you dodge for a moment in between swings (dodge takes about 1 second,) it allows Rey to regain most if not all of her stamina to start the loop over again.

    Tell me how that isn’t over powered. Please by all means, “enlighten me.”

    Sometimes, but not often. I watch the strategies of other who use Rey, and what I described above is how the Rey’s I go against usually play. R2 Spam. It’s so annoying.

    I wish R2 spamming could be removed in some way. If this was the case then I personally feel the game would be better. But with it, I feel Rey’s R2 spam is way too good, and thus boarderline overpowered in that regard.

    Agreed. Her insight ability is definitely one of my favorite abilities in the game. Keeps you off radar and gives your team wall hax.

    I also feel like her saber strikes are very consistent. I feel like I miss less swings when I play as her.

    I’m not the one who struggles with this. You said she was trash and I said she was not. I was the one who specified which mode I thought she was good in and for what reason. Sooooo....

    Insight which us overrated by the way is the only reason she's so called good. Hide behind a wall & spam her wall hacks
  • Yeah, Dooku has proved that an extra dodge isn’t very valuable. Rey’s best asset is her stamina, she has Insight which reduces stamina usage by 50% and she has the fastest stamina regen in the game. Not sure why you would ever want to give up stamina for an extra dodge.

    But dooku's dodge isn't the best one. It's nothing like Anakin's, Luke's or hers. Let's wait cause maybe her stamina would be decreased just slightly at epic. Maybe this starcard won't be that bad.
  • I’m calling Bull **** to this OP right now.

    Rey has the fastest stamina regeneration in the game at around 1 second, and Insight reduces Stamina drain by 50% when active. You can spam Insight as it is very quickly. How the he ll is this new card a joke then?

    Rey gains an extra dodge now but receives a minor stamina penalty. Her stamina is already insane as it is, the extra drain/reduction of stamina is not gonna hurt her at all, barring it be a drastic drain. If anything, Rey gets a free dodge when using Insight with no penalty. And Rey’s dodge is pretty good, coupled with Mind Trick, to mess with opponents easily.

    Rey may have become borderline overpowered if she wasn’t already. Feel free to @ me below to argue against my points. Most of the new cards seemed pretty good, but despite this, the balancing of Battlefront 2 will become worse.

    As a Rey main let me tell you something: she is good at spamming attacks really fast and she has great stamina, but that’s it.
    She doesn’t have any great offensive abilities like Vader’s choke or Yoda’s , her dash strike can’t go through blocks and her mind trick is actually easier to counter than Obi’s.
    She’s kinda “basic” in HvV if you ask me and I don’t wanna be arrogant or something but I think that I’m not bad at all with Rey and even with my experience I can have a hard time facing a good Vader (for example) in a 1v1 cause the “dodge, get at his back and then swing” tactic is not gonna work with him cause he’s gonna dodge in time and I’m probably gonna be choked after some attempts, and guess what? My abilities are not gonna make a big difference.
    Throughout the history of this game she’s received nothing but nerfs, while all the other lightsaber heroes (except for Ani of course) have been buffed and buffed even more than once, and now she just feels kinda left behind if you know what I mean.
    Long story short, she’s not pathetic but she’s not amazingly powerful either.
