This is the TRUE Reason why CHAIN LIGHTNING is so OP/Inconsistent Nowadays

Prev13
Brace yourselves!



The video above shows all the evidence we need to be sure what's really going on. Since they made the change so Force Powers would hit a blocking enemy from behind, Chain Lightning has been beyond broken.

At first I thought it was an issue with the Show No Mercy Star Card. But it happens that I was wrong: I didn't make both tests (with and without the card) in the same place with the heroes facing the same directions. That was a serious mistake.

A few days ago I then revisisted this BUG and to my surprise this happened:
giphy.gif

It wasn't making much sense. But then I realised what's going on and it can be seen in the video I posted above:

Chain Lightning will only hit a blocking enemy if he's facing certain directions on the map, while it won't hit in the other remaining directions. To be clearer:

jlvz8ga4tj8w.png

You can look at your radar to find the North and South, and then you can manipulate your facing position to always block Chain Lightning, even if Palpatine is casting it on your exposed back. It doesn't matter where you're on the map, it matters to where you're facing.

@F8RGE will this be fixed in the Palpatine changes for January 30th?


The BUG report for this can be found here: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/Chain-Lightning-Unreliability-BUG-Exposed/m-p/8673943#M27421

@EA_Tom
If possible, forward this to the team with haste. Maybe we can get it fixed before February's patch

    Thread NEEDS to be bumped. Always found it a bit weird Palp never got me if I had him on a side while I'm on a full block...thought server lag or something. This explains it clearly.

    And we all know it won't be fixed anytime soon in coming months...so best to know the workaround highlighted. Great work as usual @RogueZeroRendar

    I'm actually not opposed to it breaking blocks either. Especially since they are nerfing his base lightning.

    You’re going down a path I can not follow
  • Awesome work yet again.

    I would never have guessed this was the cause.

    @RogueZeroRendar is a genius. DICE/EA you should learn from this. Pls start listening to this guy
  • Thanks for the support guys! It means a lot to me!

    The more attention this gets, the more chances we have that they prioritize this. I posted it on reddit too (hopefully one of these will grab their attention): https://www.reddit.com/r/StarWarsBattlefront/comments/esyo6k/here_is_the_true_reason_why_chain_lightning_is_so
    Awesome work yet again.

    I would never have guessed this was the cause.

    Me neither, @Lawnmow3rMan asked me if the glitch was still working, and when I checked it something was funny, so I investigated a bit further. Then I finally understood what was going on. I suppose they somehow mixed Relative Positioning with Absolute Positioning, as it was when they made abilities hit from behind a block that this glitch appeared. It's weird that the 'hit' and 'block' regions are a bit tilted (it even seems like Earth's Magnetic Field), but that could mean the mistake isn't easy to spot code-wisely, but this is just speculation.

    I too think some abilities could break/bypass blocks, besides that totally useless Anakin's Passionate Strike. Even if only through Star Cards' effects.

    Palpatine has no way of getting through Saber blocks. Sabers can block for way too long of time with him. He needs a block breaker. Chain Lightning doesn't do too much damage and still breaks the block which is a good balance.
    Do you know the difference between an error and a mistake? Anyone can make an error. But that error doesn't become a mistake until you refuse to correct it.

    @RogueZeroRendar Dude, this is impressive detective work. You're one of the most insightful people on the forums and you're always bringing up issues that truly matter to the game, and this is particularly revealing. I'm positively stunned (Eh? Ehh?) as to how this happens, but I guess I can't be surprised by much in this game anymore. Still, good on you.

    He can’t go through them but he sure does drain that stamina faster than anyone in the game probably. Plus dark Aura damages them. Everyone doesn’t need a block breaker, DS has Iden, Vader, Maul, boosk, Boba, to deal with blocks. Palps doesn’t need it.

    If we’re talking just hitting through blocks, if he does little damage with it why would he need it anyway? Or he could just waste their block away with his lightning. They’ll just continue to block and regenerate that health lost. Plus if we’re talking about lowering their block, what’s stopping the un ending DS combos. Let’s say it’s 4v4 with all LS sabers, he breaks block, kylo freezes, easy lightnight, only to be followed up my a Vader choke to more lightning. Throw in any of GG abilities and it’s ouch time. The LS needs the block breakers more than the DS

    It literally breaks blocks now. You're acting like them letting his chain lightning continue breaking blocks will suddenly have a different effect since it's official. There is no endless DS combos. Right now there's unending LS combos with all the force throws.

    As a bug, and not all the time. Palps do just fine against sabers without it, since you can just drain their stamina without even coming close to them as I said. He doesn’t NEED it. It’s a WANT. Not EVERY character needs a block break, as stated, DS has enough, just use palp better.

    Dark side has no combos compared to the LS? Cmon, sometimes I really wonder if you play this game 🧐😒

    Can't even go through one single debate with me without an insult. That's incredibly sad. So, let's get down to what's really going on:

    You have no idea what you're talking about, as usual. I'm saying Palpatine should be able to break blocks with chain lightning and you decided to interrupt the discussion with some random nonsense talking about how it would allow the DS to have combos, which in no scenario would it allow for that. It breaks a block temporarily to allow damage, not make them drop their block completely like a stun. But, given the fact that I'm talking to you and not someone with common sense, I can see how that logic could have escaped you.

    You may not have noticed with your narrow vision, but Palpatine is going to be getting nerfed soon. Because of that, I believe he should be able to continue breaking blocks as a way of ensuring he has a defense against saber heroes. It is as simple as that.

    And yes, I'm glad you were able to grasp the simple understanding of the English language to determine I was talking about something I want, not need. Congratulations. Round of applause. A+.

    For future reference, I'd just like you to know that I understand you have some kind of weird fixation on me. You constantly feel the need to respond to my posts and try to insult me for whatever reason you have. And, while I am always glad to correct you when you typically show a struggle when understanding posts with more than 3 words, I encourage you to strive to do better in your education back at home so that when you do respond to my posts during recess, you can keep up.

    The effing victim card as always 🤪. Where did I insult you?! LOL, but then took a break from your highscool mid terms to try and right an essay to “insult” me 🤔. Bruh i even mentioned the stun THROUGH block, please try and read instead of getting trigger fingers. You have no idea what’s going on in HvV if you don’t think DS has combos, regardless of Palp, LOL. Please realize what’s going on in the game. It won’t make a difference it’s as simple as that, it doesn’t now, it’s a bug that needs certain circumstances IN THE MATCH to even trigger, so you wouldn’t be using it 24/7.

    Lol I’m telling you it wouldn’t matter, you don’t even know the nerfs yet to know he’ll NEED it, cmon now. Please comprehend.

    Unless they severely gimp his dodge, Palps probably won’t need Chain lightning to break blocks. He does plenty of Stan damage as is.

    It literally breaks blocks now. You're acting like them letting his chain lightning continue breaking blocks will suddenly have a different effect since it's official. There is no endless DS combos. Right now there's unending LS combos with all the force throws.

    As a bug, and not all the time. Palps do just fine against sabers without it, since you can just drain their stamina without even coming close to them as I said. He doesn’t NEED it. It’s a WANT. Not EVERY character needs a block break, as stated, DS has enough, just use palp better.

    Dark side has no combos compared to the LS? Cmon, sometimes I really wonder if you play this game 🧐😒

    Can't even go through one single debate with me without an insult. That's incredibly sad. So, let's get down to what's really going on:

    You have no idea what you're talking about, as usual. I'm saying Palpatine should be able to break blocks with chain lightning and you decided to interrupt the discussion with some random nonsense talking about how it would allow the DS to have combos, which in no scenario would it allow for that. It breaks a block temporarily to allow damage, not make them drop their block completely like a stun. But, given the fact that I'm talking to you and not someone with common sense, I can see how that logic could have escaped you.

    You may not have noticed with your narrow vision, but Palpatine is going to be getting nerfed soon. Because of that, I believe he should be able to continue breaking blocks as a way of ensuring he has a defense against saber heroes. It is as simple as that.

    And yes, I'm glad you were able to grasp the simple understanding of the English language to determine I was talking about something I want, not need. Congratulations. Round of applause. A+.

    For future reference, I'd just like you to know that I understand you have some kind of weird fixation on me. You constantly feel the need to respond to my posts and try to insult me for whatever reason you have. And, while I am always glad to correct you when you typically show a struggle when understanding posts with more than 3 words, I encourage you to strive to do better in your education back at home so that when you do respond to my posts during recess, you can keep up.

    The effing victim card as always 🤪. Where did I insult you?! LOL, but then took a break from your highscool mid terms to try and right an essay to “insult” me 🤔. Bruh i even mentioned the stun THROUGH block, please try and read instead of getting trigger fingers. You have no idea what’s going on in HvV if you don’t think DS has combos, regardless of Palp, LOL. Please realize what’s going on in the game. It won’t make a difference it’s as simple as that, it doesn’t now, it’s a bug that needs certain circumstances IN THE MATCH to even trigger, so you wouldn’t be using it 24/7.

    Lol I’m telling you it wouldn’t matter, you don’t even know the nerfs yet to know he’ll NEED it, cmon now. Please comprehend.

    You’re so soft 🤯. You get so worked up about nothing

    I can only lead you to the truth. I can't make you believe it.

    No 🤨

    Palpatine has no way of getting through Saber blocks. Sabers can block for way too long of time with him. He needs a block breaker. Chain Lightning doesn't do too much damage and still breaks the block which is a good balance.

    He can’t go through them but he sure does drain that stamina faster than anyone in the game probably. Plus dark Aura damages them. Everyone doesn’t need a block breaker, DS has Iden, Vader, Maul, boosk, Boba, to deal with blocks. Palps doesn’t need it.

    If we’re talking just hitting through blocks, if he does little damage with it why would he need it anyway? Or he could just waste their block away with his lightning. They’ll just continue to block and regenerate that health lost. Plus if we’re talking about lowering their block, what’s stopping the un ending DS combos. Let’s say it’s 4v4 with all LS sabers, he breaks block, kylo freezes, easy lightnight, only to be followed up my a Vader choke to more lightning. Throw in any of GG abilities and it’s ouch time.

    by that logic, all blasters should break block. seriously that's a terrible idea. he already melts stamina bars as it is, never mind block breaking.

    He melts his own stamina bar. Have you played Palpatine? His stamina runs out far before any saber stamina does.

    Uhhhhhh

    It's too early in the morning for me to have to explain stamina regeneration, dodges and other factors that lead into a saber hero being able to block Palpatine's lightning for a longer period of time than it takes for his stamina to run out. You can go playtest yourself.
