    My best guess is his zeta will make him revive as long as some condition is met and apply deathmark to whoever killed him the last enemy toon that triggered his revive/defeated him which can't be resisted or evaded.

    I sorta like that, you'd have to be more tactical when fighting against the team... But it would be really annoying to have a taunt go up that you don't plan for if you're the sith team


    Yes it would and I thought about that myself but if HK-47 forced a taunt (not like Revan but like Geo Spy reinforcement in ships) that might be a bit overpowered. He deathmarks toons but enemy team still has a chance if they have a taunter. Remember HK and Canderous both have AOE abilities. Fallen Bastilla can apply shock that stops buffs. Don't think HK-47 would need an extra ability to get around taunts given his supporting cast can probably do that.

    Also you have the problem that if HK-47 applies deathmark when revive conditions are met, you are inviting another paper zombie situation. To avoid that, most likely have a gear level requirement on the zeta same as zombie.

    Carrie is a weirdo. She edited her statement even further saying that she was referring to the Ebon Hawk. Sigh. I love how they respond over on reddit, but have crickets over here...
    I would watch out, they warn you for a lot less around here. Bad mouthing CG is not tolerated.

    Being a weirdo is not an insult. I’m a weirdo, so I would know.

    While we do have some fun announcements and possibly videos in the next few days BUT don't count an HK rework that will make or break the droid meta. Sorry folks, I don't want you to get your hopes up and start going crazy gearing or whatever.

    I've asked the team to finish putting together a more comprehensive post around how we discuss reworks and what our policy is regarding refunds when doing reworks. Additionally, I'm working with the designers to write a brief intentions for each character release. I don't want to tell you how to play this character and be super prescriptive but hopefully this will help guide your decision on why you would want to invest in X character or where this character would be useful.

    Yeah can you stop with the intentions for reworks and new characters?or at least lighten up on it? Theory crafting and imagination in this game died the day aurra sing was released.
    Then you guys tried releasing a character that would be super open for theory crafting in c3po and you ended up just making an untested multiple bug causing mess

    Now thats a dev post. Thank you. :)

    Honestly I just hope HK gets some stuff added and not really changed much, I love how he works and his lead already. He already makes droids pretty strong and makes them take multiple side by side turns.

    And some word on how things work too, good stuff.
  • Its great to see Crumb write here.

    Even if I think this ones a pretty bad post. Stating basically that the hk rework will suck. Let us figure that out.
    Rather you just tell something about the elephant in the room. You know, the one that has been asked for the past 6 months - whats up with Darth Revan, Malak, Sith cap ship..

    He didn't say hk will suck, just not DROID meta

    They didn't do this before. They now have to do this because just sending video clips to the Game Changers so they can break the new content doesn't work....one of them completely hypes up the character (like GG) beyond what CG intended the character to be able to do and then CG takes a bunch of flak because expectations were hyped up to a level that doesn't match the character.

    The post doesn't say that at all. Unless someone has been living under a rock, they are aware of all of the misplaced hype about GG and company. Making sure no one starts up another hype train and starts telling people to expect that HK will "save" GG and his droids is a very smart move by them.

    Am i to understand that Carrie was drunk last night or something?
    'Cause she went "ah yeah no sorry i was just having a little fun"
    And then you also say "ah that moment when you know by looking at the forum that somebody messed up"
    ? :wink:

    That's not true. GG video footage was shared with game changers and then us the footage obviously conveying a seperatists rework that was not realistic. Knowing full well the game changers would hype it up as a marketing tool.

    You're very naive if you don't think CG knew what they were doing. Look at the gamorra guard triple zeta 'leak' I'm sure that's caused some amount of panic farm.

    Never the less what ever you're talking about isn't my point at all
  • Statement: they are stringing us along until it happens, probably soon...

    HK47 will revolve around Darth Revan synergy. It won’t suck.
  • If you haven’t learned anything about CG released vids in the last week or two (cough, cough GG), maybe you should take any video leaks from CG with a bit of apprehension. Wait till it’s downloaded and visible before you waste any resources on it....
  • Fun announcements and or videos in the next few days!!! Maybe a puzzle tomorrow?
    The HK cameo at the end of Ebon Hawk was great and this Galactic Chase along with the OR farm is also an excellent way to hype a release or build up to some event in late March!

    I am frankly a huge fan of his articulation and monophonic projection speaker, which I must say was incredibly well done! You could probably have trashed his kit and got heat, but if you had trashed his voice it would have been all hell.

    Seriously... so you think its all the game changers fault. You dont see a video of GG destroying a Revan team with ease supplied to a changer whos been begging for a GG rework for a year... as the false advertising it is?

    I get the hype train is super easy when you see youtube videos, but that footage was misleading and the game changers all got played too.

    CG has to do some repair for that one... not the game changers.

    GG does destroy Revan with ease. Check videos where people are using proper mods.

    Offense isn’t the issue. The problem is he doesn’t hold on defense.

    Let's get that refund rolling

    Good comment Crumb!

    False.

    GG with proper mods does destroy Revan.
    Some fellow shard members that rank 1st daily use him in an all g12 droid team and he straight obliterates TOP Revans. He is still susceptible on defense though
  • I'm not sure how deathmark will come into the mix because its an OP Debuff. Ive got a feeling its not going to be easy since even with death trooper you have to kill someone and have them stay dead.
