UNIT NAME: Queen Amidala
ALIGNMENT: Light Side
CATEGORIES: Leader, Support, Galactic Republic

Key Attributes:
  • Decoy, with permataunt, gives QA a solid survivability rating
  • HOTs and POTs mechanic benefits your entire team and bolsters Queen Protection



Inspiration:
  • The Phantom Menace wouldn’t be the Phantom Menace without Queen Amidala
  • We had so many outfits to choose from, but settled on the two most iconic ones: her Queen regalia from the beginning of the movie and the clothes she wore while retaking the Royal palace during the Battle for Naboo.
  • The main player version is the Battle for Naboo one, as this gave us the most opportunity for action-based animations, like the Ascension Gun!
  • This allowed us to make the iconic Queen outfit as the Handmaiden Decoy, brought onto the battlefield to draw enemy fire from the real Queen
  • When the Decoy is defeated, the debuff Doubt is instilled on the enemy who took her out

Strategy Tips:
  • Stay behind the Decoy!
  • The Grand Arena Omicron makes it so the Decoy starts on the battlefield


FAQ:

Who is supposed to be on her squad?
Designed to work alongside Queen Amidala are Master Qui-Gon and Padawan Obi-Wan, two units that will be in the game before the end of the third Queen Amidala Conquest

Q/A Form

ABILITIES:

BASIC: S-5 Heavy Blaster Pistol

    Astounding she's the conquest character - I get that more important characters from TPM (i.e. Qui-Gon, Darth Maul) are already in-game (and this mentions a new Qui-Gon), but it's hard to imagine Queen Amidala as the powerful/decisive one on the team, when she wasn't in the movie.

    Why is a new Qui-Gon being added, instead of looking to rework the Qui-Gon in-game already? What's the functional difference?

    Qui-gon needing a rework doesn't seem right...and the new one we are getting is Master Qui-gon, who would seem to be for a Galactic republic team unlike the Qui-gon we have right now, who is for a jedi team.

    Another Conquest character, another 3 omicrons added. So stupid and unnecessary.

    This looks fun! And thouroughly JMK-proofed.

    Ummm I think you need to go watch TPM again Queen Amidala was definitely in the movie…unless I misunderstood what you are trying to say.

    You’ll have to wait for the kit reveal to find out the functional difference

    Yeah i think a new Qui-Gon is needed to have synergy with Padawan Obi-Wan and reworking an existing one would just mean breaking the current character and reworking every ability and stats and whatnot from the ground up

    Makes no sense

    I assume the new Qui-Gon will just be Qui-Gon with the Jedi robes on. Also, if Queen Amidala doesn’t get a curated full team of five by the time she comes out, someone should totally throw Coruscant Underworld Police on the team for the heck of it.

    At this point, I am hoping for a Darth Maul rework. Since TPM is getting so much attention, this will be a perfect opportunity to buff him.

    I'm suggesting that, Qui-Gon was the leader of the group - making travel decisions, feeling the force guide him to Anakin and to bring Anakin along, leaving Anakin in place to strike the decisive blow against the command ship.

    Tough to see Amidala as faction 'leader' with Qui-Gon doing everything impactful from a leadership perspective.

    Sending aliens to their death is not 'leadership' in my eyes, btw, in regards to 'planning' the battle of Naboo lol

    Just want to take this time to say that the Naboo N-1 Starfighter needs to make an appearance in this game! That yellow ship is beautiful & iconic, can just make it pilot-less if worried about who the pilots would be (or maybe bring in young ani, why not we have omega in game now)...can give it Endurance heavy synergy since the Marauder which was intended for Endurance is now with the Negotiator in most case. 9lvgzhrmuv99.jpeg

    She wasn't powerful and decisive? You and I must have watched very different movies. Everyone (Qui-Gon, Panaka) advised Padmé against returning to Naboo since she didn't have the forces to fight off the Trade Federation invasion. But she insisted on going back and defending her planet. Allying herself with the Gungans was her idea and she negotiated the alliance herself.

    Next she devised the battle plan of having the Gungan forces draw the droid army away from the cities so she could infiltrate and retake Theed and send her fleet against the droid control ship. She personally led the assault on the palace and was literally the first to charge into battle, shooting droids left and right. After Maul showed up and kept Qui-Gon & Obi-Wan occupied, it fell to Padmé to clear out the remaining droid forces without Jedi help. She did all this at the tender age of 14 btw. A natural born leader if there ever was one.

    There is Protection Up on the Lead Omicron. But without that, it seems like a good spot.

    Uh, CG did test this with Shaak Ti right? 60% dodge in GAC without datacrons seems kinda busted.

    Yes, that would be awesome! Lets bring in Young Ani to have synergy with the Queen, and he can pilot the ship. Why not? The more Skywalkers the better I say.

    Sorry, do you even know what film this is based on and what the entire story is about? Queen Amidala is a fundamental part in this movie and by far one of the greatest played.

    Conquest units are good, it gives you something higher up to aim for in some respects better than farming high relic requirements.

    I dunno, maybe? Queen Amidala does prevent cooldown manipulation on her team though, so Luminara wouldn’t be able to decrease her cooldown on her healing ability whenever one of the heal over times Luminara applies from it expire, right?

    I do agree a new QGJ is weird, im not opposed to it at all, just its weird since he didnt have much screen time or variety to make a different character imo. The kit should be interesting and im looking foward to it. (I know he was in 90% of the movie so there is a lot of screen time technically, but he didnt change much overall in the movie to where i could see i different kit)

    Padawan obi-wan make sense and i did expect it, and cool enough this is the first alt version of a character released AFTER they had a GL version.

    Otherwise so far queen amadala looks fun.

    I'm not disputing that Queen Amidala should exist in-game, by any means. She should, and I'd be glad to have her; even better leading a squad of Human Naboo.

    I'm disputing she's at a power level significant enough to be a team-leading Conquest toon, when more important parts of the story were played out by Qui-Gon, who, for instance, followed the will of the force and set the Chosen One to be in the right place to blow up the Command ship and save them all.

    But this is not the first example of an inappropriate toon leading an inappropriate squad from lore perspective (even just in the last 18 months we've gotten 3S replacing GI for almost all Inquisitorius squad situations, despite this being the opposite of her in the Kenobi show), so that might just be a more general CG design problem.

    I’m honestly excited for another Qui Gon and Obi Wan. Such great characters in the movies, hopefully with robes on. Now can we please get CAPTAIN PANAKA

    PLEASE RELEASE A NEW DARTH MAUL OR GIVE HIM A REWORK!!

    Agree. Different versions of Kenobi make sense. We saw him as Padawan, as Master, as General -- playing different roles and emphasizing different tactics or skills.

    QGJ was only in one movie, didn't change or develop significantly over the course of the plot, and may not have even worn different outfits, though don't quote me on that.

    I'm not resolutely opposed or anything. I just don't see the need. I mean, there's a lot of GR Jedi and there's no reason that a player couldn't spare QGJ for this squad.
