OK, so I am a little late to the EP party. I have been happily using a MT lead team or Rex if I face an EP lead. Problem is both fall like rocks on defense (yes I know nothing holds on defense, but still). With Rex I can drop 80 spots! I am normally around 30-15 at payout on an old shard.
My question - I finally setup my EP team - EP, DV, DN, Thrawn, GK. Normal, right? Zetas are placed where needed (EP lead, DN, etc). I also have good mods on them, mainly speed on the 4 and health/prot on GK.
All 4 of my speed guys have more speed vs. the mirror team. Their DV goes first. Always (at least so far). I tried 5 matches tonight for fun. Every time - they went first. I also went up against a SiT instead of GK but same thing happened - their DV went first. Force Crush, culling, TM up, etc... I am down from the start. I actually won 3 of those still but two I was beat to a pulp.
What gives? I checked every one of their squad and I was faster on every single toon.
When I check squads it is always Thrawn fastest, then EP/DN and then DV is around the low 200's. I have my squad set the same. Am I doing something wrong?
If it is a coin flip then I am getting bad RNG over and over but it doesnt make sense if I am faster from the start. If it sticks to being a coin flip I'll stay with Rex, I win 95% of those matches against EP and swap out to my EP to blend in for the final match. I find that holds better on defense if I become white noise on the shard vs. sticking out! There are several Rex up top but they all swap payouts and are beaten back quickly.
