Yoda does Tenacity Up to start a battle.
Rex will do Tenacity Up to start a battle.
What does Chirrut do? He uses Strength of Purpose (his heavy attack that calls Baze to assist). This of course completely wastes the ability since it is frequently used on a Tank that had taunt up at the start of a battle....or wastes it on a Jedi team that has Foresight. Either way, it is wasted.
With so many fast debuff teams out there, Chirrut should be allowed to use Tenacity Up to start a battle when on AI Defense.
Phasma was "fixed" to use Victory March at the start of a battle instead of using Fusillade. Chirrut should similarly be fixed as well.
Zader L, Zid, Krennic, Death Trooper Zeta, GK
Rex L, Baze, Chirrut, Darth Nihilus, GK
My Chirrut is faster than his Zid so I naturally do Tenacity Up to start a battle. If I did not do this, it would be an instantaneous blood bath.
Thoughts from the peanut gallery? Please do not turn this into a nerf thread because it is NOT a nerf thread. I am NOT really complaining, I am trying to understand. When on Offense I can win with protection still on most characters. When AI Defense uses my team, it is just a complete slaughter. Why no in between?
This is not the only team I run so there is no need to get your drawers in a twist. The triple cleanse does not work vs a properly mod'd 4 Zeta Jedi/R2 team. I pull Rex out, run GK Lead and put in Boba. For Zaul teams I pull Boba and put in R2-D2. So I run variations based on my opponent....no need to bash the Triple Cleanse team that works quite well vs many.
Anyway, please do not take this discussion down the path of NERF this or that, whine about my team comps etc.
Let's just keep the discussion to WHY is Chirrut not used well? He could be used so much better! Also, when programming his use, it would be easy for the system to check if the opponent is using an auto-taunt at the start of a battle or if it has fast debuffs or if the opponent has foresight. A couple of "if else" programming statements could make AI so much better for a ton of characters, not just Chirrut.
