IG-86: Why?

IG-86 is terrible. So terrible, in fact, I refuse to promote him. GA benefits aside (but not ignored), there's an argument to be made that you should simply collect his shards, without promoting him, until the game no longer exists. Because he's terrible. As such, I am currently at 5 stars on him (before I knew what I was doing), but now at over 600/85.

Convince me I'm wrong.

  • I mean he's in platoons, and if you promote him that's a lot of shard shop currency. Assuming you have the credits I don't see why you wouldn't make him 7 stars.
  • No he’s not! 86 is then linchpin to my tricky HK lead droid team where everyone assumes they suck, then they die. Sometimes.

    I'm going to need lots and lots of video proof to believe this.

  • In early days of tank HK, 88, 86, Engineer and Nebit could do 10%+ of phase 2.

    There will be many guilds who would not have completed Tank as early as they did without 86.

    Well besides the GA thing, which I knew about last year thanks to my time machine, I have over 10k shard shop currency and counting despite making purchases every refresh.

    More importantly, I don't want him getting a big head. Er, a bigger head than he already has that is.

    And they should all be ashamed of themselves. Sometimes the end does not justify the means.

  • He was..... OK back in the day to fill out a droid team. I still use him on my reserve Droid team sometimes.

    Ah. I thought you were being semi-serious. Now I see otherwise.

    He is serious. He has to show us how many shards he has everytime he gets some from bronzium.

    That’s not the definition of serious. That’s the definition of crazy!

    I loved that droid / Jawa team in tank. It was one of the few I could post a top score compared with my guild back in the early days of HAAT.

    Though, I will concede, 86 was the worst member of the team. One of his most bizarre features is 34% base potency at g11. Absolutely none of his kit requires potency.

    It's true, it's in my TOS.

    You're not doing a good job of convincing me I'm wrong.

    You’re not wrong now. There was a time, though....

    The time before I started playing is a rumor without basis in fact.

  • I was there man...

    Phasma, GS, QGJ, Lumi and Stick Rey were meta...
  • HK47, IG86, IG88, Chief Nebit and Jawa Engineer was a great team when Jawa Engineer first hit the guild store. It was my first meta arena squad and my first consistent source of crystals.
  • No droid squad stands a chance against my Jawas! Except maybe 86 and the disarming charm he brings to any confrontation.

    Shut up, ig86 is awesome. YOU should try to convince me otherwise !
  • well he was a character that was in the game since the beginning and has never been touched (besides the update that added omega's to everyone) so of course he's bad now you ****.
  • I am in a similar position. I figure I will end up promoting it eventually for one reason: Shard store currency.

    The only disarming he can do is when the opposing squad falls over from laughter.

  • He was on my first arena team and raid squad. He actually does ok damage on a droid team. Slow as heck though.
  • All droids should be taken to 7* and geared to max. 86 is no exception. Respect the droids!!!

    Respect is earned. Still waiting.

  • Respect the droids?!? When the only viable leader (R2) is a rolling trash can and their only viable attacker (IG88) falls over if you sneeze on your phone, I find it hard to give any respect to them.
  • Now, I would only level an early toon with three skills would be for a platoon in TB, strong rumor of a rework or a pilot

    I find it hard to take you seriously when you tell me Artoo is a better leader than HK47.
