Lineup order help?

I’ve been told it matters which order you place units in your squad. Specifically for clone troopers and Nute lead sep teams. To determine which unit to select to assist. Does this matter for a GG sep droid team? Is there a particular order that I should place them?

    it doesn't really matter. there a few isolated cases where IF an AOE kills EVERYONE at THE SAME TIME you want fives in the last spot, but ftmp it won't be an issue. just put him last just in case. There's something similar with jolee but you want him second I think? basically, the odds of you needing them in a certain order ares slim to none

    Geos, namely, it's extremely important to have Sun Fac hitting first to dispel debuffs (maybe someone can comment on what position he needs to be for this)...

    I think @Gifafi is right on Clones...you want Fives in the last slot so that on AoE attacks, other clones will die before him. It outright breaks GAS against BSF's Wild Lightning ability.

    JKR teams you theoretically want Bastilla and Yoda in the back rank so that neither of their basic attacks suck up the Foresight (Bastilla for Ability Block and Yoda for damage), though I imagine this has much less of an impact as these other teams.

    hmm, also, now that I reread, there's a difference between turn order and placement. turn order is determined by speeds iirc. I believe if the computer is picking someone to assist, like bastilla picking someone for example on defense or auto, that choice is just rng, or at least that's what I've always thought. I don't know of any placement issues with nute or sep droid team placements
  • Ya Geos you want; GBA, Sun Fac, Soldier, Spy, Poggle. I know having Zombie in the 2nd slot helps in spirit blade since she'll aplly ten down.
    I'm unaware of any Nute droid order, but I would love to know if there is one.
  • Also in a JKR team, if everyone is murdered at the same time without Savior being used before, you want Jolee in the 2nd spot, so he revives from Savior

    Yeah, there’s apparently a few mechanics that affect the order we should place our squads.

    A lot of people understand the 5s mechanic of AOE kills and why we should place him in the 5th slot.

    That same mechanic can also affect other teams like NS, where you want Daka in the 2nd slot, so she can be revived 1st upon an AOE kill, in order to revive the others.

    It was my understanding that this also affects mass attacks like padme teams with GKs special, where you want ahsoka in the 2nd slot to dispel first.

    I’ve tried to see how mass attacks actually happen in game, but don’t record, so can’t slow down enough to see if they actually happen in order of placement.

    I have yet to see a video that shows the order of attack on these mass attacks to prove the theory though.

    I think it's a combination of placement and animation speed...for "melee" characters that have to run up and hit, it's basically whoever gets there first. Ranged characters it's just who has a faster animation.

    I guess what you're getting at is that say we had a team of 4 Hans and a GK, would placement actually affect when each one hits with the mass assist? :|
