With all the hype surrounding the Grand Moff's new abilities, I was curious to test it in Arena (I run an Empire team), but someone beat me to it, so I tried it first in the opposite team.
The story goes like this:
- ... some things happen ...
- Tarkin fires his mass debuff thing, a blatant success: all my toons are now neutered with offense and crit down. Things look pretty bleak for me right now.
- Next turn is mine: "The Negotiator" (Kenobi) repaints all that red into green...
- Now having my whole squad with both offense up and crit chance up, that's a nice treat! After that, it didn't take long for me to wipe out the Grand Moff and his whole crew.
So it's perhaps the first time that a toon lands after
his perfect counter is already well established? I think the window of opportunity for Tarkin in Arena has ended a few months before it began.
I'm sure he can still find a decent supporting role in a Tank P3 squad or something, but I wouldn't bet much on his ambitions to take the center stage, like Anakin or Boba did for a bit after their rework.
