So now saber throws go through block…

I thought everything would be good now that the block breaking mess frenzy was gone. Now, there are two (2) block breakers on tiny cooldowns again. Vader gets 15-190 through a block every 8 seconds and maul gets 80-100 every 8 seconds too. (Correct me on the damage values, I’m not completely sure). So if both Vader and Maul are fighting you, you might as well not even try to block because every few seconds a chunk of your health is gonna randomly go missing.

  • I am glad that Han’s shoulder charge goes through block. Good change. In terms of the saber throws, I just can’t keep track anymore. Hero combat is different after every single update.

    The difference with shoulder charge is that you have to fully commit to the attack, and it is very easily punishable. You just dodge to the side and slash him in the back. Saber throws however can be used safely from any distance for ez damage through block.

  • Only the saber on the way back hits you, which I don't like either, but it does make sense I guess.

    Every ability now deals damage to blocking enemies if it hits them from behind. Whether it's a Light Side force push, a saber throw or a dash attack. They all deal full damage if you don't block in the right direction. Why single out Vader & Maul as if they received special treatment? I'd rather be hit by saber throw from behind than something like Anakin's Pull Doninance - force abilities also retain their knock down effect when hitting blocking enemies in the back.

    Well because every other character needs to get positioned behind a block to be able to get past it, which is pretty difficult. The saber throws on the other hand just do the work for you on their way back. It causes a large stagger, opening you up to attack.

  • So all I’m asking here is not for the feature to go away necessarily, but increase the cooldowns to something other that a couple seconds.

    No, but I have a sneaking suspicion the mouse may have had another account previously too.

    Don’t most good players dash to avoid the returning saber anyway? It makes sense that a saber hitting a player in the back would ignore their front facing block. Not really seeing the issue here.
    Perhaps. Maybe a bit of an overreaction on my part, but sometimes maul’s saber flies so fast you can’t react to it.

    Why not? That’s much longer than the cool down on rolling/dashing.
