I call this my "R2 Faux Lead". Talk about fun! Once I rework my mods I'll make some more videos. If there's any combos y'all want me to try just sound off below.https://youtu.be/dCZjSb_wu-k

Make Zader Great Again!
It holds well, but can still be beat by Rex and Zaul led teams. Zylo fairs worse because the AI doesn't use his special/stun to spam like we would.
Edit: nevermind sounds like poo
No purpose, those toons are good enough on their own that they don't need a leader ability. @SnakesOnAPlane realized that one of his toons on that team actually did have a leader ability and it would slightly buff ONE of his guys... yep just one of them...
Would just Baze or Chirrut be okay?
I don't have Ezra geared up enough to make him viable, yet. I'll keep it in mind as I work on him. Check out my profile so you'll know which combos I can make:
It's the entire team. Did you notice Cassian sticking debuffs and then popping them with his special?! R2 and Jyn stunning!
Did you run that team without R2 and did they still win? Does removing Chaze from any of the comps affect your ability to beat Sith? I may have misunderstood the point of the thread though, thought it was highlighting R2's effectiveness, if so, my bad, nicely done.
Yes, the point of the thread is highlighting R2's effectiveness. He makes just about any set of good toons completely viable against the meta, even without a leader.
As for not having Chaze, I've ran it before and it's definitely NOT nearly as easy to win, if I even win at all. Jyn, Cass, Bistan, and Chaze against a maxed Sith team is a crapshoot at best. I've seen K2 instead of Bistan make it better, but it's still a toss-up, IMO.
That's fair, thanks.
Curious about a Cody lead clone team but with R2 subbed in for one, maybe Echo?
That's actually something I do want to try. The only issue is teams with Zarriss; as she nullifies the crit damage, so Zlones would be near useless against any team combo including her. I once stayed in a GW match for 30+ min on full Auto against a team with her.
IMO, Cassian's kit benefits the team better with Jyn lead. His ability to land debuffs is brilliant!
I'm not complaining and thanks for the vids.
Would you mind doing one without Chaze and GK?
More or less agree here. Chaze is just a continuation of the rebels meta that has been floating in the top 10 for the past year. Just a matter of swapping out others to compliment them, whether that is GK, Nihilus, Zylo, Rex and now R2. R2 does make for a decent anti-dodge character so he is a good compliment against Zaul, making them easier and giving Chaze a chance to take back their top usage crown again.
The Jynn lead looks very effective and Cassian seems to lay down the law pretty well with her lead but the real driving force is Chaze. Basically run Chaze + 3 random meta characters and be able to compete in top 20, if not top 10.
So what your saying is run a team of meta characters and you can complete in the top 20, if not top. 10...
Well of course that is true. At least you are not like many others saying Chaze and any 3 will work, from experience that is not true.
