Disheartened by the grievous rework? Never fear... BB8 makes the team amazing!

    Haha today the same. 5 battles in a row everyone just attacks grievous always calling Yoda to assist and game over. The stupid thing is you can not even do anything because you don't get a turn. AI just calls yoda who gets 5 hits in a row. Even when Everyone has mark and taunt (happened just now) still GG is the target.

    Great.

    Eek! What kind of fluke crap is that? ☹️

    I'm only practicing with seps in arena until i get deka and b1 maxed out, finish my zetas and 6E them all. Though I'll need to wait until they go onto nodes to star them up.

    All you guys who are consistently winning seem to have maxed them. I can win with the right rng but i guess i shouldn't really be able to consistently beat maxed revans with a half baked sep squad.
  • It comes and goes :). Still I manage to get to the top... Just need to spend more crystals to get there.

    I'm at 4* on b1 and droideka. It works... Mostly :). But now DR comes.... And things might change... Drastically :).
  • Oh yes, I have 99% maxed team.
    My mods are extremely good, but not quite outstanding. My Droideka is my modded pride-and-joy: 42k health, 46k prot, 108 speed, 192% cd, 46% cc, and....5642 Physical Offense Damage.
    I’m still farming mods for bb8 as his are just moderate, but as-is it’s great.

  • Sooo ... Actually I don't think that our GG teams will be able to beat DR.

    Any thoughts about that? Of course GG leader abilities are completely useless against DR. That's a surprise isn't it? :).

    Depends on how long it takes them to fix the leadership bug.

    Wins on auto pretty much every time vs DR teams... super easy wins :)

    BOW DOWN TO YOUR DROID OVERLORDS!!!

    raLKStH.jpg

    Seriously though...

    I know it’s early still...

    ...but I’ve fought quite a few different DR team setups (this is vs already all G12 & fully zeta’d DR teams)

    Now that I’ve pretty much maxed out the GG Droid team... And they are properly modded and at pretty much full strength...

    I can take #1 in arena every day with at most 1 refresh now... well... when work doesn’t interfere with it at least 😬

    Revan teams are a gimmie win on offense... and you can even win on full auto vs both Revan teams enough to make it a viable option... hahah

    Im gonna stick by this team to throw a wrench into the Revan vs. Revan nightmare :)

    I wonder does magnagaurd help clear all the debuffs they give the droids?

    Good stuff @Smapty. How is it holding on D?
  • Ahhhh great....so I'm waiting now for farming for B1 and droideka....and then we will rule them all :).

    Still can loose on offense, but able to go for 1 every day also. Not having much DR on my shard, as everyone switches to JKR for defense :(.

    BTW they fixed the GG leader tag already.
  • Also @Smapty could you post a video of DR battles?

    @Sarbitar here you go...

    I just made a quick video vs the first Darth Revan team I came across while climbing back up the ranks today (although my opponent’s teams are usually very tough and he probably has the best mods on the shard)

    Full auto FTW... only 40 seconds. Not too shabby :)

    Thx @Smapty.

    You specifically set them in that turn order? B1, B2, GG, BB8, Droideka?

    I've got BB8 first, but that way he doesn't provide the bonus TM to B1. It's just 15% but still :). I mean in your first droid turn.

    I’ve started swapping out B2 for T3 vs Darth Revan teams... it increases their damage dramatically and beating those teams seems to be all about doing it quickly and efficiently :)

    I even tried a HK led droid squad that was just pumped up for pure first turn damage... it did pretty well vs Darth Revan... But was awful vs Jedi revan...

    So I just went back to the standard Seperatist droids with BB8 and I am swapping B2 for T3 when I fight the DR teams and then put B2 back vs JKR (B2 is a must to have a chance vs Jedi Revan)

    Still taking #1 :)

    It’s nice to have a little more variety in arena lately.... enjoying it quite a bit ;)

    Ahhh was about to put a topic if T3 is worth it haha. That's cool as I just upgraded him to G12 almost.

    You need both zetas on him to be efficient right?

    I suppose you could also swap B1 for something with more punch, like IG88. B1 does not do anything special on that team as I see it. The damage dealt by DR and HK is just to big.
  • So far no luck with that. After the initial strike I'm not moving. Fear kills me. Got one more move with GG after for death, but couldn't kill them. Maybe shouldn't do aoe than, and just go for DR or Bastillla.

    Do you have a zeta on Grievous’s unique? That’s how the battle goes. Droids get turns in, then Revan starts killing everyone. But every time Revan kills someone Grievous gets a bonus turn and AOEs.

    Yeah sure I have. Problem is GG gets deathmarked and he is first one to go. I'm making tests. Ahnalds video is great, but that's not how usually the battle goes in my opinion. Also I do not want to slow my GG so he is after IG88. Just want to switch chars for different teams, and not reaassign mods.

    I've had some luck with C-3PO :). He calls GG to assist (giving him +30max health btw) on fastilla, then GG finishes her so no fastilla from the start. But then still GG gets deathmarked and dies pretty quickly. There's definitely a strategy to be found, but need some more testing.

    I believe safe strategy is the team HK lead, GG, C3, T3, BB8. That way GG won't be deathmarked and won't die so quickly.

    That HK led team worked very well vs DR once I got their turn order down so they were doing optimal first turn damage...
    It would probably be very strong vs a lot of teams with how much damage they can do before the other team gets a turn...
    But vs Jedi revan it fails miserably... and arena is still saturated with JKR unfortunately :(

    Which HK led combo is that?

    Hmpfgfhtrgg I must be doing something wrong cause I can't beat those Revans reliably.

    Hk sniped my t3 and that's it :(....

    Also after 10 battles with hk lead I wasn't able to beat revans. Hk's damage is close to none (his special does 1k additional damage), so he is a useless toon other than taking damage. I must be doing something wrong :).
  • Hmm finally something quite easy. Of course GG barely survived, but i think the rest of the team would manage that. GG had a hit for 120k from HK? At 1:13.

    Here’s my latest “go-to team” vs Darth Revan squads....

    HK (L), Grevious, T3, 88 & BB8

    22 seconds only for the victory on auto vs a solid team :)

    Nice. Hyper fast team. Your whole team goes before them and then 3 GG AOE = good game. Amazing.
