TIE Fighters need protection!

I desperately think that TIE fighters need protection. Even if only a little, it would give them more of a fighting chance when in fleet arena. They don't dodge often so it's unique is useless when it can just get destroyed quick. I know in the movie they were a pile of trash but if they are trash in the game that's two less ships to synergise with

    They have a high dodge rate to make up for the lack of natural protection.

    tie fighters dont have shields (aka Protection in goh) in movies and tv shows - in exchange they are fast and good at evading - i guess devs tried to stay true to canon here

    When comparing Fotp with Tfp.
    My Fotp's ship got protection(like 2000 or so)
    While my higher lvled and geared Tfp got 0 protection.
    How is that?

    Only the Imperial Tie Fighter is like that, my FOTF has protection (granted, not alot, but it does hit pretty hard)

    Tell it to imperial engineers

    Funny. My 3* Tie Fighter hits like a truck and evades often. It's a great addition to my lineup. Perhaps try gearing and levelling your TFP? Mine is 5*, G9 Level 82 (I want to try and factor him into a raid squad). I started gearing and levelling him before ships.

    Yeah TIE's dodge is ridiculous.
    #CloneHelmets4Life...VICTORY!!!! :smiley: "I don't like sand. It's coarse and rough and irritating and it gets everywhere." The more you tighten your grip, CG/EA, the more whales will slip through your fingers (and go F2P or quit).

    I think they should have at least 1 protection so that Poe can't open with ohko with his unique.

    This, or not really 1, but give it a disproportionately low amount of protection because so many other ship skills are based on protection healing so it kind of takes away from so many possible synergies.

    Piggy backing on the latest Rebels episode, they discuss Thrawns new Tie striker and how it has shields, unlike the standard Tie.

    Doubt we will get ships from Rebels episodes that haven't aired yet before we get any of the Ghost crew, but who knows?

    Look up Tie Bizarro
    THAT'S what we need
    This deal is getting worse all the time!

    Yeah, I don't really have a problem with the fact that TIEs get a dodge chance boost instead of shields, except for this:

    That's a definite problem, especially given how fast Poe's ship is.

    I don't think the Tie needs protection. My Tie is a key to success just open with special to either draw Ashoka's dispel or Poe's attack and giving capital ship TM. His 35% dodge rate is insane, can't remember last time I lost him in a battle

    Can't dodge poe's special and Poe is always faster. That's why I want just a nominal amount of protection.

    Really? Then AI is just too dumb to use it, opponents Poe only gets one shot anyway but still, never been ohko'd by a Poe

    Interesting they would introduce a more advanced TF in Rogue One when in ROTJ the Tie Interceptor was the most advanced TF we had seen at that point. Disney has to be careful with continuity.

    Maybe it implodes on itself because it was a prototype.

    As if I could prevent that anyway. Defense is, has never and will never be good. I just build a team that makes it easy for me on offense and that usually does an okay job on defense as well

    I thought that was the bat-looking one? Not the TIE with 3 wings? I haven't looked into too much other than the first wave of action figures.
