Boba Fett is unstoppable. Too OP

Solutions to balancing him:
  • Remove air recovery completely
  • Buff his health regen from 150HP to 200HP

  • tone the air recovery down a bit and sorted.

  • Han works very well against him if you have no help. If you have a buddy working with you, Rey mind trick + finn buff is crazy tough.

    “Unstoppable” and your solution is buff his health?
  • You can't be serious. HvV is more team-oriented than GA in my experience. It's definitely advantageous to stay close in HvV. In GA heroes go and do their own thing. You stay close to Finn and Boba can only hit you every now and then and from a distance. If he gets close and Finn is around, any wise player activates Big Deal and buffs himself and anyone around. Switch to deadeye and Boba either blasts you or flees. You won't kill him immediately but you're going to wound him and push him away.

    Just like I said, if you stay with your team no single hero should be able to kill you.

    Yes Deadeye can melt him but the problem is that in HvV players often dont stick together. Not only that but any Boba player with half a brain targets Finn and Han first and can demolish them with one RB, which will now have faster recharge with new card. Anakins pull is useless with air recovery. Air recovery needs to go and RB needs a SLIGHT nerf. Otherwise Boba is fine.
  • You all talk about teamwork.

    Why should 1 char need teamwork to take down......???? Think about that.

    Beyond Buffed Boba is in the state that he is because of GA. He was terrible in GA. So in a smaller setting like HvV he is a monster.

    Which is why, back in ... Dec of 2017, many of us advocated for separate balance between GA and HvV. Well now that he's good in GA, he is now godly in HvV.

    If he is nerfed to hard, he goes back to sucking in GA, but still doing super well in HvV setting.

    He's still one of the worst heroes in GA, very situational. Air recovery did nothing for me

    He's playable in Ga now at least, but doesn't change my point.

    Agreed, Boba’s is so fun to use and so good on certain phases but just can’t do anything in close quarter phases, On Naboo Boba is crazy fun and good in the first phase but is just not viable in the 2nd and 3rd phases

  • Use Finn and deadeye. Use Han and detonite charge. Use Anakin and Pull.

    People try to do things on their own instead of playing with their team and this is why heroes become a problem or you can't counter one. There's no such thing as teamwork in this game most of the time.

    That won't work on a good boba. Boba drains any blaster hero.

    Just give air recovery and rocket barrage that Anakin style secret nerf sauce...and Boba will be OP no more. And all that talk blaster heroes can get Boba is nothing for an above average Boba player...in HvV blaster disabler is easy cure for it.

    Assuming above average players:

    1) The blaster disabler works well yes (except I’ve noticed it doesn’t always seem to work on Chewy for some reason) but Boba will still need to be pretty careful and quick in his follow-up takedown of the blaster user once it hits. If the blaster user’s chaperone is nearby too, Boba is probably better off dipping in for a quick assault, withdrawing and then circling to finish the job with a second go around.

    2) A blaster hero counters Boba players in two ways: (a) obviously by being able to KO Boba far more easily and quickly than LS users; and (b) by acting as a fleet-in-being in that merely by making their presence known to Boba (via laser), Boba will generally switch to a more conservative play style until the threat is removed - which means your team will have a reprieve from dealing with an aggressive/unchallenged Boba roaming about the field at will.

    I should have clarified, I meant do those things together as a team. I assumed the OP was talking about HvV. In which case Finn, Han and Anakin work very well together to get Boba or anyone else really.

    Some people won't know that you can't just keep ragdolling Boba and you have to time your moves, but anyone that's been playing for a while now should know that this adjustment isn't hard. There are no more OP characters in terms of heroes imo. That might change with the next update though.
  • there is no counter to the best Boba players your blaster heroes are free kills and your teamwork means nothing if the enemy team has good teamwork as well you wont be able to focus Boba he takes to long to kill and even if you do kill him quickly you probably just ate up a bunch of abilities to kill him you focus him with enemy teammates near by and your just asking to get killed and Boba can just dip with no teammates near by so either way your not killing him.

  • just remove the air recovery and make it so he cant be knocked out of the air by explosive projectiles thats all he needs to be balanced imo.

  • If you get rid of air recovery he will absolutely suck in GA. He actually isn't bad in GA right now but can be killed easily if outnumbered. Specialist sniper and bowcaster bolts already knock him out along with orbital strikes, vehicles, and many other things.

    he still sucks a heavy with DC-15 explosive shot will make sure Boba never gets off the ground the air recovery needs to be removed and make it so explosive projectiles cant knock him out of the air.

    That should have been what they did in the first place.

    Air recovery didnt change much about his effectiveness in GA. He is pretty much the same after they gave him a HoK card.

  • Two hits from a lightsaber dead.
    Air for his gun is crap
  • If by teamwork you all mean allies who place themselves in front of you just as you were about to kill an enemy, making you die in his place, then here on swbf2 you do a lot of teamwork. Unfortunately
