So BB8 can solo any hero.

That cable spin. With max cards is unstoppable. Like I know he's supposed to be offensive but Good GOD! you can barely out damage him as Vader.

  • Vader can outdamage cable spin 1v1. And of course the saber heroes can just block until it is over. The problem I have with cable spin is that you don't know you are being damaged by it, there is no taking damage sound effect for it like other forms of damage. You can be dead before you even know what is happening if you're not watching your health bar like a hawk. I really hope they give cable spin a sound effect.

    No he can't epic card with his left ability he can clap a vader
  • The day a BB8 beats my Boba solo, is the day I uninstall.

    I’ll farm that ball all day.

    I mean I would uninstall too if I died as Boba 😂

    Vader can out damage him but you'll have 100-150ish HP and if you miss any swings or run out of stamina you're dead.
  • Get good m8 n you won’t keep dieing from cable spin

    Just block and get away from his cable spin then once he's done go in for the kill if you are a good saber hero you shouldn't be struggling in a 1v1 against Bb8 as a blaster hero it's more difficult
  • Are droids not supposed to be strong? Would rather throw fisticuffs with Han or Iden than fight a droid.
  • Be glad he's not as quick as BB-9E. That guy can move in and out, disrupt your blasters, shock throw you then finish up. He's not quite as potent as BB-8 though. Cable spin is the deadliest single ability on a hero imo. You can't tell it's coming and often when you do, half your life is gone.

    Not with these hitboxes

    😂 literally have the exact same mindset with Vader and Anakin. If either of those beach balls kills me it's going to be a wrap.
  • With BB8 I managed to solo kill various Bobas, Vaders and even Palpses so far. It’s definitely feasible, if they’re not top players.
  • Imagine C-3PO fighting Darth Vader so Sad lol

    Shhhh... Don't give them ideas 😉

    Literally
    Just
    Hold
    BLOCK

    As Palpatine all you have to do is dash out of there and than spam lightning to win, as Maul you have 3 omega saber dashes on top of your two regular ones and ability to block, Kylo you have two stuns to freeze bb on top of your block

    And if your losing as Vader in a 1v1 solo against bb8, that is absolutely on you. ESPECIALLY with how broken he is this patch

    If you think BB-8 is gonna have a chance to hit Boba with the slow dam cable spin when he can dodge twice or just sit at a higher elevation to avoid it, you’re insane. No skilled player should lose to BB-8 or BB-9E in a 1v1.

    plus, i hate the " skilled" arguement..so what you are good with boba..say im just as good or better with the stupid bot...now what? bb8 has every advantage over boba except the jetpack...all it takes is boba to touch ground, get charged, hit resistance backing for 12.5% extra damage and start the lawn mower, boba dies before you can do much with 190 charge with card i think, and 80 something a tick, with the mower....at worst you got perma damage, then simplay wait you out, and repeat
    hitting with the missles will be hard, they are easy to avoid, boba in general is easy to avoid and like bb8 he is a threat when you DONT KNOW he is there..in straight up fights..boba is free points

    Lol. Boba is the furthest thing from free points. He’s the safest hero in HvV, other than Vader.

    Ball 8 can’t touch Boba. The day one kills me, I’ll let you know.

    If you're killing a Boba or a Palpatine with BB-8 then they are bad players end of story.

    Nah, all Boba has to do is literally land somewhere elevated and BB-8 has no way to get to him. He has range to simply pick his health down and height advantage so Ball 8 can’t escape. Even if he landed on the ground, two quick dodges and he’s already out of whirlwind. Boba has rockets that would be easy to avoid if BB-8 could jump above the aoe, but since he can’t he’s gonna be taking the full brunt of them. At that point just shoot the blaster, you’ll chip him down from a range he can’t touch you from. It’s ez pz. Again, if Boba loses to BB-8 in a One on One fight, the person playing Boba needs to uninstall.

    He can't solo anyone, unless the player has forgotten how to dodge or block, as most have said on here. You do hear the cables whirring and see damage coming off - thats on you if you decide not to move. BB-8 also moves slowly when doing cable spin - you can escape.
