There is quite a few counter characters. What's the point if no one uses them anyway?
The OP was a rough idea. Let me explain it more clearly.
Everyone complains the meta is only speed. Same for assisted attacks etc Dps reigns.
So, tanks should have some kind or counter attack. We can all agree Chewie is useless in PVP?
This counter attack should inflict significant damage. This only effects glass cannons. Other tanks or attackers with reasonable HP who attack and get countered won't feel the effect as much.
If FOTP, GS or Rey can inflict a crippling hit they would at least take some damage for the effort.
Like a previous person commented. It's like adding a second dimension to fighting. Instead of one standing there and taking it from the other they engage eachother and each inflict damage based on attack and defense.
Perhaps the useless defense stat could apply to all tanks and translate to a counter chance and damage.
Edited for clarity of the idea.
Would higher counter damage increase variety? 66 votes
