    Zeta on his unique, I'm guessing?

    I heard he had no zetas...
  • This guy looks disappointing for anyone hoping to use FO to contend with the meta in arena. Hopefully more FO characters are coming for that. He looks like a beast for TW though. It looks like he has a large health and protection pool, and with all of the stacking health and gaining 2 buffs on his basic he will be hard to take out under a KRU lead.

    KRU, Kylo, FOST, FOSFTP, and FOE will be a heck of a territory wars team. You will have to burn a meta team to knock them off. Their sustain is ridiculous and when you add in the TW bonus the damage will become massive as the battle wears on.
  • What do you guys assume will be a good team set up for this judging on what you guys have seen? (Both pve and pvp)

    With his health pool and offense constantly growing on his basic, maybe a team with a "health-equaliser" toon (i.e, Hermit Yoda, zBarriss...) and as many assists and counters as possible (i.e, GK, FO...). :)

    Thanks for the reply! :) do you also know what would be the best FO allies for him? Curentlly using Phasma (gomna br KRU after zeta), FOST, FOTP, kylo and officer. But no idea if i should replace one of them for the executioner, and if so which one?

    Does anybody else think it's dumb that they call for an axe wielding executioner after saying that traitors should suffer? You use an executioner with a sharp weapon to make it quick and clean, not to punish...

    You're welcome. :)
    Please keep in mind I'm far from being a swgoh expert, so my theory might be totally off. :D
    I'll let an FO specialist answer your last question. ;)

  • What do you guys assume will be a good team set up for this judging on what you guys have seen? (Both pve and pvp)

    Looking more at his kit, I don’t think he replaces anyone. Don’t see him as an improvement in anything.
    KRU, FOST, FOO, FOTP, Kylo is the top 5 imo. I don’t see him bringing anything that’s needed more then those 5. In fact his unique is his only good quality. The rest of his kit is just mediocre at best.

    It would depend in his base speed and base health, but if those are high (+32k health, +140 speed) he can be used instead of kylo or FOO depending the oponent. The dispell in special is very valuable and if he can do 15k with basic +25k with special consistently with all the TM gain he has plus his survivability he can be a great adition and just what FO needs for arena.

    This said, I am still waiting another toon for FO to glue the team together (a BB9e in style of R2D2 or BB8 but with heavy debuff base and mass dispell)

    Maybe he do it very very slow instead of quick and clean
  • when is he gonna be available and at what cost?? There's always some catch with new characters. How much is it gonna cost you, and is it even worth it??

    I think FOSFTP is better than FOTP.
  • Is FOE good enough to go into a first order squad? And if he is who would you replace in this squad: KRU Zlyo FOO FOST and FOTP?
    Thanks.
  • He seemed to do well replacing FOO(from the kit videos) he looks like a beast and a good addition to raid teams as well!

    Shame we're only going to get him at 3 stars.* :/

    * Apart from those who're gonna drop a ton of $$$ on packs.

  • I think something is missing from this toon. The sound of him, name, description etc... all make him sound real ba. But I feel like being an executioner, a merciless attacker, has powerful attack, abilities such as judgment and death sentence.... he should really have the ability to either annihilate, execute a toon or apply death mark. I think being able to apply an uncleansible DM would be awesome.

    Just my thoughts. He’s seems really cool. Just think he’s missing that small touch to give him an ability to live up to the name

    Yep. I spend a little (maybe $20 a month) but by time I have him raid ready I'll have both Han and GK maxed.. and FOE will probably be obselete by then anyway lol

    Negative. He should only unlock at 2 stars.
    Taking into account SF FO Pilot unlocking at 2, due to only having 3 abilities, I think it’s reasonable to assume FOE will also unlock at 2*, since he also has just 3 abilities.
    1 ability = 1 Tier in the event. That’s why KRU unlocked at 3*, he had more tiers because he had more abilities.

    Kind of a shame, I don’t know why they started doing this, because it wasn’t always this way, but oh well.
  • I love getting super hyped for a new ds character, forgetting about him for 3 months, and then being able to farm him.

    May very well be:
    Unmasked lead, stormtrooper, pilot, executioner, and foo or masked

    I know kylo's (masked) stun and health can be clutch, but getting rid of him may very well bring first order to the next level. Officer's cleanse may be needed instead of the stun from kylo (masked).

    Nah, CLS one shots them all the same.
  • Sucks. Beta made him look promising but they took away his AoE.

    Oh dear god no. As someone who uses DT in arena, an uncleansible Deathmark sounds horrible. It's already, easily the best debuff in the game; even with it's qualifiers.

    The only thing that keeps DT from being on every single team, in every single year+ shard is the fact that an enemy has to die before he can deathmark.
  • I am just imagining him in raids.... this is the new maul hAAT solo....

    He can replace Kylo in PvP when facing CLS since AoE are bad against him. Moreover, he will hit very hard imo due to his special and unique. Offense bonus equals to 5% of his max health where he can easily reach +50% or +100% max health. His special already hits for 8k. With only +50% max health stacking, he hits for 14k, so crit for 40k+. And more with KRU's lead CD bonus.

    You wish.

  • 2 stars it is then. :/
  • 2-Star unlocks are lame, thanks

    I love the animation on Death Sentence... not so much on Judgement (it looks like he's bunting [baseball reference, not textile or bird reference]).

    Ha!
    I noticed that, too! Reminded me of a schoolyard bully shoving a smaller kid.

    He looks kinda dumpy as well.

    Like an old farmer in wellington boots...or gumboots as I believe our American friends call them :smile:
