So I too was really feeling the pain of grevious and the newly reworked separatist droids.... they just seemed to fall short somehow
That was until I decided to stick BB8 on the team in magma’s place... then it all came together
The initial speed boost for the droids he gives makes them all super fast... so they all move before the other team. This opens up a lot of advantages for the droid team....
Once he gets to the point of illuminated destiny (which happens pretty fast) then thats all she wrote for the other team...
Worst case scenario is that b1 gets marked and dies early... but even in these situations I’ve still managed to pull out the win more often than not...
It’s really an amazing team to use (at least offensively) against the sea of Revan squads in today’s arena... against CLS or others use R2 instead of B2 to focus fire on Droideka (who will have damage immunity for 2 turns already since he moves super fast)
I took a few screenshots from some battles today as I climbed the ranks with ease
I sunk some money into the droids (B1 and Droideka) after I saw they were capable of winning.... but I had pretty much the same success while they were both at only 4*
Good luck fellow droid lovers... and enjoy the team
