So, apparently Fives’s zeta wasn’t nerfed with the STH patch. Not sure who/which dev to ping for this, but I’d like to know if that was intentional or another bug. Personal thought is that the devs might have forgot about Fives when patching stuff.

  • Been told @CG_Carrie and @CG_TopHat are the people to ask. Sorry if I’m pinging the wrong people

    I have a guildmate with a zeta ready to go and a full team of clones to use it in. Want to make sure this won’t get nerfed after he uses it, and wastes the zeta as a result.

    i wouldn't use a zeta on 5s just to be able to use this team in p4 vs traya. It's not worth the risk of it maybe getting nerfed.

    Better to post it early and get it nerfed than after people have invested their hard earned Zetas.

    Thanks for the note! We've filed a bug on it and will be investigating it soon. At first blush, this looks like something we are going to update to bring in line with the intended behaviors detailed here:

    That said, I'm waiting for someone on the team to review and then we'll move from there. Thanks again!
  • Ok, thanks for the response!

    Well...it probably wouldn't have been nerfed if you hadn't mentioned it!
    I know this rather proletariat of me, but I kinda like it when players "outsmart" (ie using in-game mechanics perfectly) the devs, by discovering something awesome like this.
    Personally, I don't think it should be nerfed.
    A. This is the result of a zeta ability, which a SIGNIFICANT investment, in line with the Game Philosophy, and
    B. It's not that huge of a boost (only a couple million damage). You can't do major chunks of a phase with it. This really only helps guild who have the HSith Raid on farm anyway.
    #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).

    The devs can see what happens in the game based off the numbers that come back...or that’s my understanding of how it works. I figured it was only a matter of time before one of them noticed anyways. Also, it could become a loop that could completely deal with Traya in P4 if Fives’s Potency rose above 85% and he was able to stick speed down on his first hit.

    Do you honestly believe this forum post (or any forum post for that matter) has any effect on whether it gets nerfed or not?

    So if it gets nerfed, when should people who Zeta'd Fives AFTER the first nerf of characters, expect their zeta refund?

    Never, they are not changing his zeta and his zeta wasnt made for raid only. You could have expected that they might "fix" it since they "fixed" othere abilities like that.
  • Technically the update post does state that BoW no longer triggers on damage abilities so this was to be expected as a nerf/balance/fix

    So are we expecting a nerf on Asajj lead as well?

    According to this nerf no, because no on damage abilities are present

    Sorry to disappoint you but this is not how things work around here, I'll prove it to you IF they end up doing something about it.

    As if any of you thought this wouldn't be nerfed and you zeta'd fives anyway. Lol.
  • I put a zeta on fives for p4 haat back in the day. In light of this news, I would also like a refund :tongue:

    Never. They don't nerf things anymore, they classify them as bugs, which legally allows them to refute any refund requests.

  • I may be wrong, but i do believe that McMole put out a video on this a bit back anyway. It is not like this post is going to be the beacon that points them to the mechanics either WAI or not, so I don't have an issue with it. OP is trying to keep people from wasting zetas.

    What surprises me is CG_TopHat's reply that kinda does make it seem like this is the first they have heard of it.

    Exactly. Which is why I ever discover an amazing strategy (NOT bug exploitation), I'm keeping it to myself.
