Are CLS rebel counter squads the end of DN?

Mine is hardly the hardest hitting rebel squad (until I swap in Raid Han and ATF :wink:) but DN basically kills himself by doing his AoE.



Is this the end of DN? Is it finally too risky to run him in non Zaul teams?

  • Well cls killed him, was to beatable with Rex for the most.

    R2 in the squad, give him Stealth and he won't be getting counters.
    But yes, Luke's 50% Counter chance feels like 150%.

    Use DN lead and he's a lot harder to kill.

    My Nihilus either doesn't survive long enough to annihilate, or the fight is already over and it's too late. His AoE against a counter team is too dangerous, and the cooldown is too long for it to be useful without it. His basic dispel is nice, but he's mostly a one trick pony who isn't a good choice against a CLS counter team.

  • for offense, rex,dn,r2,gk,thrawn will work against cls teams.
  • DV (L)
    R2
    DN
    GK
    Thrawn

  • One just needs to play DN under a CLS lead - problem solved and DN unique zeta synergizes **** well with Luke lead own zeta especially againt Rex lead.
    R2 will also help DN to use his AoE while being stealthy.

    you run DN zeta unique with CLS zeta lead? is it worth?

    Well my CLS is only g10. I've put speed mods on him so he's not optimized for damage, so he's not going to be hitting for 20k ... Yet. :)

    But it's now possible to surround CLS with a LOT of hard hitting rebels. ATF, Ezra, Leia, Han, etc. But a pure damage team (with maybe R2 as the only support) definitely seems like a viable way to build a team now.

    Nope it's the end of squads without a tank (if such squads dare to still exist). :)

    It's funny - I was reading a thread that said tanks were dead because Raid Han can avoid pre taunts to start the fight, and CLS can avoid taunts during the fight.

    There are definitely a lot of different ways to build a team these days!
  • Since CLS arrived DN has been in decline and he's more of a counter-elite build, not the core guy in elite builds any longer. His value is lessened in arena, but not "dead" - Maul is dead - DN is just not king of the hill anymore. Pre-CLS DN usage on #1 teams per gg was steady around 75-80% for months - already he's down to 45% usage.

    And on Tanks...yeah idk where the thought on running tanks being a necessity is coming from. Now more than ever, tanks are optional. I think you're better off with another damage dealer in there.
