***NOTE:I have multiple posts with various vids below.***

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.

    $$ music! Awesome video!
  • Nice - R2 + Chaze is some....BAD COMPANY!!! I like it.
  • @scuba recommended that I eventually stick Nilly in lead to give him at least some extra Offense. I like it!

    Here's 3 matches condensed into 4 min. First 2 are Nilly lead, R2, Chaze, and GK. Last is Nilly lead, R2, Chaze, and Zylo.

    How well do you think Nihilus lead, R2, Chaze, GK would hold on defense?

    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.

    Please try any combo that does not have Chaze in it. They alone were already good against everyone. I just would love to see something really different :)
    My favorite characters Empire - Sith
  • This comes from a selfish place, but I'd like to know how well Ackbar(L), Leia, St Han, Ezra and R2. I have Lando in at the moment and I'm thinking of replacing him with R2

  • I don't get it... What's the purpose of running R2 as leader ?

    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:

  • Yet another, this time against a Zilly lead:

  • So it's really Chaze + R2 destroying many sith. Is it the Chaze, or the R2?
  • So it's really Chaze + R2 destroying many sith. Is it the Chaze, or the R2?

    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.

  • Rex lead, chaze, R2, nihilus is by far the most effective r2 team I've used out of all the combinations. I can put it on auto against every team on my shard and win with 5 standing at full health every time.
  • 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:

    That's fair, thanks.

    Curious about a Cody lead clone team but with R2 subbed in for one, maybe Echo?
  • Why don't you use GK instead of Cassian?

    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. :D
    Why don't you use GK instead of Cassian?

    IMO, Cassian's kit benefits the team better with Jyn lead. His ability to land debuffs is brilliant!

    Not trying to be lame, but it just looks like Chaze is the key to most if not all very strong light side team compositions.

    I'm not complaining and thanks for the vids.

    Thanks for making and sharing these vids, Soap, it's very much appreciated. :)
    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.
