    Shoretrooper has a taunt that prevents crits will destroy all the AoE/crit attackers like Lando, Anakin, and Wiggs. He's got an auto taunt to open the round, so that counters the first turn issue. Plus the heals all the time...

    Then TIE fighter gives tenacity down and AoE buff immunity, and all those extra foresights for debuffs on enemies paired with EP and Vader????

    I haven't looked at the DPS or health stats but the abilities are CRAZY. They'll make EP (L), Vader, RG, TIE Pilot, Shoretrooper unstoppable

    That TIE pilot + Vader + EP = Deadly combination

    EP (l), TIE pilot, RG, Shore trooper and Vader... Run to the hills!

    They both look insane. They counter the current meta. I'm hype for the crit immunity. Lando is OVER.

    That's what we're discussing. I'm having a feeling this will be meta.
    Meanwhile, down on the farm....

    I'm hoping shore trooper doesn't end up in a b2 says "lolz I mass dispel you" situation where he's useless.

    I'm just waiting to hear, chromium only crap coming soon at least for shoretrooper. We might get a shot at Tie Pilot only because he is the login character. Crossin fingers I'm wrong tho.

    It's making me rethink finishing the last star and a half for wedge this weekend or abandoning ship on him and doing a quick start on someone else like b2.

    I'm 99.99999999999999999999% sure that Shore trooper is the tournament reward

    His cooldown mechanic should help somewhat vs dispels. Buff immunity is a counter to him. Plus hes also healing your entire team when he taunts.

    Replace RG with Tarkin and you're spot on >:)

    Plus his level 1 basic has a 40% chance to inflict Critical Chance down for two turns.

    If his basic at omega level ends up being 50% chance or more at delivering Critical Chance down, then he's definitely a hard counter to the current meta.

    Shoretrooper is cool, I like him (and he's probably the tournament reward, unless shoretroopers have been in Rebels or some other thing I haven't seen).

    That said, I've got one peeve about him:
    Empire already has a taunter, the basic Stormtrooper, and it's garbage. Stormtrooper is a very bad no good awful character, and instead of improving it they've just added a new character that does everything Stormtrooper does, but better. Completely chomps the flavor of a character who already exists.

    As I said, though, I like Shoretrooper. I just wish Stormtrooper wasn't so veryveryverybad.

    So a surge of empire toons will hopefully lead to a new event to earn Jedi Luke

    Exactly! I'm hoping for it... And since this new Empire Meta will probably break the AoE crit Meta, Luke will probably have some unique/leadership skill that will counter the empire meta teams! This will be a classic Empire x Rebels... Well, at least i hope this will be the direction of CG devs... Would be a smart move.

    PS: Some good synergy with Jedi would be great as well!

    The problem is when other allies use a special, Shoretrooper will gain TM and shorten his taunt period.
    Maybe.. GG will get some synergy with Shoretrooper.. by letting him Taunt!

    You realize you are playing a F2P/P2W game right? This isn't a console game where you spent $60 up front and everyone's equal outside of individual/team skill.
    But in a tournament? Not good. Let P2P pay to level/gear/mod their toons BEFORE the tournament. Not at the last second when the other guy practically has the trophy in his grasp. Nice try at calling it a tournament. The right word is auction.

    I agree with the peeve a lot. One of my bigger complaints about the game recently is that they'll create this power creep with the new characters they release while leaving the other 80 in the dust.

    Also, I'm not sure how I feel about giving the whole team crit immunity. I'm a low spender and I've stayed away from the aoe meta, but been working hard ever since mods were introduced max my teams damage with crit mods. If this guy becomes a regular in my shard, it's really going to be hard for me to recover from this possible meta shift.

    Meta shifts happen. Sidious leads became Bariss leads became Dooku leads became Poe became Rey became lando became wiggs.

    Just build your roster and when the game shifts you adjust to the game now.

    The game now is not nearly as easy to shift to as it was in March. Too much time and resources go into one character. We can't have a different meta each month

    I takes so long to get gear 10/11, though. Back in the day, it didn't seem like they dropped this many new toons on us. Rey sat on the throne for... like... 3 months?

    Now only whales have time to play the new meta before it's over. lol. (I'm still working on rey, BTW, hahahahaha)

    While I largely agree with this statement, I see it as a positive. Instead of constantly playing keep-up-with-the-meta, only to have it change as soon as I've earned the characters to play in that meta, I focus on gearing up characters that I find interesting. Eventually they will cycle around to become the new meta.

    Or they won't. But, if they don't, at least I'm doing something that interests me and I find original. Folks get their fun in different ways, and that's how I get mine.

    First impressions of TIE Pilot and Shoretrooper? TIE looks like he can do some serious damage, inflicts Tenacity Down and Buff Immunity, and gains foresight.

    Shoretrooper gains taunt before the start of the fight.

    I'm impressed.

    So am I, those toons are gonna be fun to field. EDIT: optimistic Shore Trooper doesn't end up in chromiums and everyone has a shot of getting him from tournaments.

    I also want to share the aforementioned disappointment regarding Stormtrooper. I seriously hope he gets a rework of sorts in the near future.

    No he gains health, the ally who uses the special gains TM, huge difference
