Developer Notes:
The Ebon Hawk was a really interesting ship to design because we don’t have an Old Republic fleet for it to nest into, and there are a limited number of scenes in the original games where it was directly involved in combat. From the outset, we designed this ship to be a viable plug-and-play option with more focus on strong reinforcement utility (vs. front line play).

Compared to character combat - which has a tremendous breadth of status effects - ships lacks some of that diversity today, so we're interested in continuing to expand this part of combat whenever we can. Early on in the design process we aligned around granting immunity to allies as the core of the new status effect, and this became central to how we built up what would eventually become Chaff.

We think the Ebon Hawk pairs particularly well with the Galactic Republic, Geonosians, and Bounty Hunter, however the ability to dispel all enemy buffs on reinforcement should help many different fleet configurations fare better against some of the more challenging fleets you may face.

Here are some of the lineups we played with:

    Yeah! More Kotor!!! /sarcasm. But it is a new ship, so I’m 50/50 on this one.

    KOTOR is killing this game

    This kit doesn't seem all that great but the stats are going to be important, we will see how the survivability is

    Awesome so glad you put T3M4 in there

    Dispel enemies and inflict evasion down on reinforce. Another way to kill HMF.

    I'm actually excited for this ship to come. The debuffs and extra attack sound nice.

    It's probably going to be strongest as a reinforcement ship with that AoE enemy team cleanse but removing target lock can also be helpful in some situations

    Why not just call it Target Lock Immunity instead of Chaff?
  • Options
    Oh, great. OR ships now. 🙄
  • Options
    So does Chaff prevent Tie Advanced from reapplying target lock? Since it specifies immune I’d assume so, but looking for clarification. In the same vein, does it apply Chaff before cleansing target lock?

    I don't get all the OR hate. Have these people not played Kotor and Kotor II?? OR is amazing.

    I agree. It seems like it will be the key to many things, like how Jolee was: seemed to be "okay" but will be much better in actuality. Truth is, I'm incredibly excited, I absolutely love the Ebon Hawk and I can't wait to get it. I do hope the sequel KotOR characters will be appearing with it too.... ;)

    Because chaff make radar all screwy, which hinders targeting.

    So if Vader was on the other side, the clear would be pointless? Wow.

    Anti Falcon Ship is good. Cargo Ship is Good.

    Anti-Sith Ship for yet to be released Sith Ships maybe? We will see.

    Got a picture?

    Can you be immune to something you are already afflicted with?

    I think its an interesting scenario which is a race in order of operations

    Target Lock is dispelled and then it depends on what happens first, Chaff or Vader's re-applying Target Lock similar to Fracture and Old Ben Zeta

    Hope they tested out and we don't get a bug on this

    Because the content from it have made this game exponentially less enjoyable... Sith Raid and Arena both suck which are the largest parts of leveling up in this game.
  • Options
    CG please no more kotor. I understand there was a small hyper vocal minority that asked you for kotor but it has now been over a year of kotor. Please! Enough. A year long theme of only one era isn't fun. There are many things happening in Star Wars right now that are new and exciting. Enough with kotor, Please.

    Ebon Hawk applies Chaff anyway. Which means that if it throws Chaff onto them ("Dispel Target Lock from all allies and grant them Chaff for 2 turns.") they won't be getting Target Lock for those two turns. All I agree with hoping that Chaff prevents the re-application of Target Lock with order of operations though, that would just make sense to me.

    @FREEDOMfrom I think most folks issue is that OR has pretty much dominated the game for just over a year now (with introduction of Traya and the Sith Raid). They're probably ready for a new "era" to get the limelight. Clone Wars era would be great, considering how many of those characters are junk in the game. They touched on Grievous and a couple Droids, but not enough to make a difference, and pretty much all of the Jedi from that time period need a lot of work.

    Is that a term used in KotoR then? Because none of the dictionary definitions I’ve found say that chaff messes with radars.
