For a while now AI controlled opposition is completely ridiculous!! Arena or GW. I am facing pretty regular squads that should be a total cake walk and I am getting wiped out due to AI on their side.

Just faced a pretty lackluster team - Lumi (L), Luke, Sid, Chewy, JC.

My team - Sid (L), Lumi, GS, RP, Poggle

Every single toon on their side dodged Every. Single. Shot. Didnt matter who I targeted and with whom, the battle lasted a while and I would try and hit Lumi with Poggle for Ability Block. Dodge. Chewy taunted - RP, GS, Lumi attacked - he dodged all!! Only Sid landed one in the middle of that. Went after Sid with GS and RP. Dodged both GS special and RP special, only the assist that came from Poggle hit. I'm about dead so went after JC. RP hit, he dodged Lumi and GS special again missed but assist from RP took him out.

Same thing happened earlier but with a Phasma, Daka team. Crazy amount of assists off Phasma and Daka self revived 4 freaking times!!

I've had bad RNG battles before but this is getting crazy.

Note:Edited Title to get rid of those ugly *'s, it means exactly the same thing without them. :)

  • AI is actually terrible on defense. Its a known fact and nothing has changed.

    You are seeing some RNG dodge.

    AI is horrible currently in Arena in terms of defense. Anyone in top 40 can beat each other because of AI.

    I'm not talking about AI running my team on defense, I know it is terrible. I am talking about AI for opponents. Some RNG dodging doesnt equal 4 and 5 in a row at every toon on their team!

    This is a random case. It doesn't happen often.

    Again AI is terrible on all fronts in terms of defense.

    With Luminara lead the game becomes dodge ball. She gives everyone evasion and sometimes it goes crazy.

    Mine works normally. Sometimes they pull two critical Dodges in a clutch momento, sometimes it is me ehi dodge in a clutch moment.

    Working fine.

    Yes it does. AI a clearly has some kind of statistical advantage. It's plain as day now that it's always identical teams going against each other. They're not being truthful when they say they "investigated" it and found no issue. They're not gonna admit something like this goes on behind the scenes the same way casinos don't come out and admit all the games are in their favor

    I hear this...and agree. Happens non stop.

    And not just the evades ( which consistantly happen from a stunned opponent....please explain how someone who is "stunned" can evade and attack yet still remain stunned), but the assists are averaging well over 90% of attacks. Daka self reviving 3,4,5 times a match...cooldowns on specials being faster than should be( Dooku cannot use force lighting 3 turns in a row, nor can Sid do and AOE attack 2 turns in a row) 100% heal blocking from Dooku on basic attacks, and Neither Dooku nor Sid should be attacking before QGJ (at least I do not know of any scenario in which Sids or Dookus speed will exceed that of QGJ

    Random is random. You're not going to recall that time every Jedi attack nailed Sid despite his really high dodge rate but you certainly will remember the time every one of your attacks is dodged. There's nothing wrong with the AI. I'm certainly not encountering any odd and prolonged rates.
    They groaned, they stirred, they all uprose, Nor spoke, nor moved their eyes; It had been strange, even in a dream, To have seen those dead men rise.

    You answered yourself: "bad RNG battles".
    You just had an extreme one. If you play a billion battles against a Lumi leader, eventually you will probably get a battle with like 10 dodges in a row. You were just one of the unlucky few. It goes both ways but we only notice when it happens against us. I've had my daka ress 3 dead team mates with 1 heal cast, and i've had her passive also proc 3 times in a row (in a different match), pretty much giving me a win when I should have obviously lost.
    But my natural instinct is to feel super unlucky every time her ressurect does not work and everytime her stun doesnt land.
