I am having a very difficult time understanding how 6 star max gear toons can get wiped by 4 star blue geared opponents? Don't get me wrong I am not complaining so much as trying to make sense of how this is even possible.... I understand synergy, but honestly if my characters dodged half as much as the AI I would have no issues. My six stars couldn't dodge a planet, let alone a single strike here and there. Yet the AI without any sort of buff will dodge 5, 6 strikes in a row. Can someone make sense of this for me? Otherwise it may be time to pack it in and play elsewhere.
The only Jedi I run is Lumi. It is not uncommon for Sidious to dodge 4+ Jedi attacks in a row. To put that in perspective, depending on the toon and ability being used is easily enough to down him and then some. That coupled with the damage bonuses by Sith against Jedi in combination with more anti-Jedi hard counters than any other, there's just no reason to run Jedi. You're risking doing decreased damage as a result of misses and increased damage received due to DPS increases/anti-Jedi bonuses.
This are the kind of reasons other lower levels can still get you. In my case I am 1500 lower energy than top players. And sometimes I finish 5-0. Ultimately it's harder as top arena now has all 5 chars with 7* and fully matted to ability level 6 for each and every guy there.
What are the levels if each char? A lot of what happens in battle is determined by your abilities. Eg. Talia regular attack at 6 abikity can replenish 1000 hp per attack passively. Lumi at max Heal level 6 can double her heal power by extending Health to the third turn. Also, how are you using rhe heals and in which order? Healer warfare is very much a play style and since each heal is very different, and each enemy, that plays a huge impact.
Eg. If I play vs droids I do something completely different vs a full Jedi team or vs a Maul, Darth, Sid team. Even oresence of taunter changes how I heal and when and to what purpose.
I guess I may eant to write a Heal Strategy thread, so that other can improve for thise that "just heal when needed" or eorst, "when scared".
