    And why not just change the way isolate works in raids? Leave everything else alone and address the actual new element that makes the infinite loop possible instead of breaking everything else. Turn the +50% health steal is gives when attacking an isolated enemy to something like +15% damage and boom, fixed.

    you're telling me this after investing 4 zetas and a squad of g12 NS with armateks!!
    better nerf the health steal up, for the health of the game

    I only geared my ns team for this raid. Hard other teams I would have upgraded instead. Thank you very much, cg.

    Should be much higher than 20. That loop they are referring to is WAY higher than 20. Let it be 50.

    You can’t solo a 50, AND it takes a lot of skill. Acolyte getting 50 stacks would be a TINY score.

    If they're going to nerf the sisters then I want my zetas back, only reason I did asajj lead and talzin unique was for sith P4.1, glad I didn't pull the trigger on daka yet!

    Dude #1 "Hey look, a bridge"

    Dude #2 "Where?"

    Dude #1 "Way over there!"

    Dude #2 "I'll cross it when I get to it"

    Hey, look... the bridge is washing out where we planned to cross.

    Where?

    Two days' hike ahead.

    Let's not find a better way now, but **** about it when we get to it.

    Thanks for that response. So of you believe NS is about to get wiped out, and yes that would suck, then take your advice and find another way now.

    Wow... At least when the St. Han strategy we were told almost immediately. Watching your player base spend zeta mats on a squad you know you are going to nerf, and based on the post has been in the works for a while, is crazy. Why would you? Purposely try and anger your entire player base that has been working hard on beating your content?

    And let's be clear you are needing your entire player base to solve a problem that only affects those who have 7-star Traya? That makes it even worse, who really cares if a whale guild who already has HSTR finishes the raid slightly easier?

    And 4 zetas. And gear on all other NS. This will significantly impact NS in every game mode. If they do something like limiting the number of revives, we deserve refunds. Not to mention the crystals (money) we spent farming shards.

    Simple, because CG is much more willing to screw over the average player and protect the whales than the other way around. It's all about money.

    We've invested a lot of time and effort to get these characters.
    Why don't you also nerf the characters who could solo Rancor and HAAT?
    Your precious raid has been outwitted... take the hit!

    Don't tempt Satan dude. Mind you nerfing CLS would give me the perfect excuse not to farm a load of toons I don't want.
    Hey, it's still better than MSF
  • Let me say to start, I read posts: I have never actually posted on any of these forums/reddit. Having said that, if CG changes the NS squads as proposed they need to offer refunds for the zetas like they did with Barris. Many of us never would have done the daka, MT unique zetas if not for their utility in the raid. One squad doing massive damage in one phase is nothing new: Tebow leads with rancor, clones in hAAT, etc.... Changing the mechanics so one squad cannot do 2 entire phases is understandable. I have no arguments against that. That can be fixed incredibly easy by the developers with no other changes being necessary: nerf isolate against raid bosses. For that squad to work, you have to have a 7* Traya. Remove her from the squad and it doesn't work at all.

    To the developers: this is such an easy fix. If you proceed with your current planned changes, you are absolutely going to have another reddit nightmare. None of us want that, and we know you don't either. Please think this through before having massive, far reaching consequences. Losing a 2 phase solo team is a minor inconvenience that 95% of players won't even care about. Invalidating the 4 zetas and all of the g12 investment required for 4 NS members (Talzin excluded, as she has utility in every facet of the Game) is an insult to the majority of your players. By all means, fix the solo issues; but please do so in a responsible manner.

    Ns are still one of the few viable p4 teams, let's not go too overboard here guys. But this essentially half's their effectiveness putting the stack count at 20. 40-50 would easily achieve their goal of negating this acolyte team while still preserving the viability of ns as a whole.

    Daka zeta refunds? Leggo.
  • Well now NS squad is useless. Why even farm them now. This is stupid. People don't upgrade zombie so nerf her. Well sweet.
  • Given that the main reason for Asajj Leadership to be Zeta'd is the HSTR raid, will you be providing refunds for people that have spent it on her?

    This is a clear nerf to a leadership ability and destroys the main reason people used it.
