    What do you run in your FO squad currently? I too am going FO route for GL
  • Also curious as I've been slowly building them up. R3 KRU, R4 FOX. What
  • You can use a GG team as well... so many counters for NS! Geos doesn't sound good with MT's plague, they might be killed pretty easily if undergeared vs a Relic NS team!
  • Nobody can 😂mcwiidnw97ba.jpeg

    Nah I'm kidding obviously. On decked out ones like mine, I use either padme,DR or BH. Won't even attempt with anything else.

    The second most effective counter that doesn't steal away from other powerful teams is BH with Jango and Boba. Personally, I use Embo lead with Boba, Jango, Cad, and Greedo. Embo lead allows BH to heal, which gets rid of plague more frequently. That's my go to. Works most of the time, unless the NS team is all super high relics. Works for both Asajj and Talzin leads.
    Embo lead only regens health. Bossk lead regens both health and protection.

    True. Doesn't mean that Embo is not an effective counter though.

    zzKRU - R7
    zFOST, FOO - R5
    zKylo, FOX - R4

    I had KRU, Mask Kylo and FOX at low relics before the requirements were announced, so it was nice to have an excuse to give them all shiny red borders.

    It could work though relying health alone seems unnecessarily risky, particularly against a dangerous opponent like Nightsisters.

    Also, in GA banners matter and I can take down an NS squad with Bossk-led BH ending the battle with full banners. You cannot do that with Embo lead.
  • You need more potency on your team.

    Than on mine?

    Pretty sure my EP Vader and Tarkin got 300 combined potency before considering EP lead. TFP and Thrawn are not potent
    That’s some good information. Your problem is Tarkin and tfp. Use bsf and DT instead.

    Absolutely right. Bossk is the better choice.

    I should mention I don't have Bossk geared or starred (nor Dengar). I chose to get Chewie by another route, and went with the aforementioned team instead. So for players who don't have Bossk (which is not many), Embo lead is not a bad option. Works for me.

    That and Assajj debuff heal is evil
  • I use my main Arena squad, which is my Palps Sith team with some Empire. I can easily beat any NS team all R7 and win every single time. Always. I emphasise Always!

    Anywho, Palps lead, Traya, Badstila, Thrawn, and lastly Vader. I have all the zetas on all of them too. I used to use Nihilus until I got Traya. Yes I'm one of the rare different players that doesn't use A Triumvirate squad. Ha. Make sure your Vader is as fast as possible, he is absolutely essential to start the TM monster train that I get. Then Thrawn usually goes next but sometimes my Palps does, my squad is all pretty fast too btw. Well next depending on who goes first Fracture or mass stun with Palps. I land stuns on pretty much all of them most the time cause of all the potency my Palps has. Dark Basti goes next and of course hit em' with that FEAR! Arguably, the best move in the game I think ha. I usually keep zombie shocked until I kill off the 2 revives, normally Talia is squishiest. Once the revives are gone Isolate that a annoying zombie. That's pretty much it, I just keep hitting them with Fear and stuns and they normally can't even take a turn against me ha, even at R7!

    Not trying to necro too much but I just came across this squad in my current GAC. Daka has over 100,000 health and they're all about +60-80 speed. Their Daka wasn't as fast but was extremely beefy and gains tons of TM from Zombie sacrifices.

    Went in with this:

    Ended like this:

    A G8 Talia isn't ideal, but Veers' AoE can easily wipe anyone under G12+.
  • I defeat any and all nightsister teams with Palp lead, Vader, Shaw fallen, Nihilus and Darth Revan or Sion or Thrawn
