    Putting money down that he will suck in a Droid squad.

    Is there any reason to give him synergy the current droids though?
  • Raid or yoda style/emperor event; those are the only 2 events where you unlock a 5* character as the reward ( Han Solo and GK in the past), but what makes me curious is that he has the galactic republic tag... could they be introducing characters from the galactic republic like padme? or is this just meh ?

    Why does R2D2 have the resistance tag?
    Unless R2 does something in TLJ, they should take it away.
    All he did was wake up and give people plans.

    He was in force awakens too, he is everywhere. He was key to the map to find old pervy luke.

    Why? Because he's part of the resistance.

    Phasma and Cody are both humans (and tagged as such), but they don't have any explicit synergies.

    Why should sharing a race require synergy? Are the 7 synergized droids (plus 3 non-droid toons with droid synergies) not enough? (coming from a droid player who plans to get R2 as quickly as possible ... without spending mountains of cash).

    @EA_Jesse there is this Iconic character from Star Wars named Luke Skywalker and he is a Jedi knight. Maybe you haven't heard of him...... r2 is great and all but what gives really? Spam countless toons we really don't want and keep the one thing that can make $$$$$$$$$ away. Sigh....... it's kinda sad the princess was right Obi wan you are the only hope.

    They did announce that 2 new fan favorite toons were being added in the next 2 months. This is one of them. Jedi Luke could still be the second one

    I bet they go dark side next. My guess is Jango.

    That could be. But Luke is in the new trailer for the game when he wasn't there before. And he's still on the picture at the loading screen. Why have Luke in the trailer if you aren't going to add him?

    Oh that's a huge mess up if true. His abilities should be specific to his factions.

    His skills seem solid... But there's still a long road to see if he is arena viable. None of these matters if he's too slow or too squishy...

    So? There is no reason to make him great in a droid team. He isn't even on the same side of the war as almost every other droid in this game. Why would you expect R2D2 to pair well with characters like General Grievous or IG88?

    It's old. There is no burn in there for one. It could be similar, but no way they release an evasion toon right now. That would be such a dumb move and a slap in the face to everyone complaining about evasion.

    Seems like it...

    Any other single faction and it'll cause an uproar. Plus it seems that empire was just confirmed :wink:

  • Seems odd. I thought for sure it would be a faction(s) that most of us didn't have. I'm very skeptical that 5 7* empire characters are all we need to max R2D2...

    Ti laked it so we know it's true. They get special treatment and know what's being released ahead of time.

    Thoughts? Looks like he could boost a lot of teams.

    Well if the datamine is true, then he'll be a rebel and resistance toon that doesn't fit with either of them and is literally hand-crafted to fit in a Zaul team.

    It makes complete sense that it would be 5 7* Empire toons. The empire is getting a rework and likely packs coming so you can pay the monies

    This wouldn't be a boost to any team. This would end the game imo. We're already in the middle of the rng dodge Zaul meta (that or rex DN chaze GK), which has been around for a long time with no change and much frustration/boredom.

    This kit is hand crafted for a Zaul team, which is literally the worst thing that could happen right now. Players will leave because Zaul isn't being countered, but actually buffed.

    He would be better on a Droid team tho.

    It would be quite a buff to droids tho no? Je recalibrate + r2 going first. But I do see your point tho it would make zaul even stronger. His abilities should only work for Rebs, res, droids and republic.

    I don't think he would. He adds evasion to a heavy evasion team, and applies debuffs for DN to feed off of. Sure he could work in a droid team, but he would immediately be added to Zaul teams for an even worse meta.

    Commented on your post in the MT lol, but yes, only to specific ally factions would be perfect at this time.
