Hks leadership

Prev13
His leadership was the only reason I geared more than 5 droids to gear 12+3. Now you are changing it. Yea I’ll take more than my 3 omegas back. Give me my $300 back and all my droid zetas.

    I'm expecting this fire to burn for awhile, especially if his new leadership renders droids unplayable as a pure faction. I mean you could use Lobot or 88, but the former has little versatility and the later is often used in Bounty Hunter teams.
  • I feel like every droid released after HK was designed to not make him insanely effective so now what?
  • HK's synergy with Darth Revan is probably going to be so good that it would be a criminal waste of resources to use him as a leader anyway.
  • Hk with droids is great on offense in tw/grand arena. Arena isn’t the only part of the game. I don’t care what the synergy is with Darth Revan. That isn’t the point at all.
  • With all those crit immunity, crit avoidance mods, anti crit leaders (even rex xD) and also zarris i cant see how a heavy crit based leader like HK could be a problem... Unless u release a mega powercreeped droid or something :S and noone want powercreep in this way so i cant see the problem with his leader xD

    Also if u destroy a leader skill in a toon it have no sense to refund the mats just for this skill, u must at least refund gear/mats/credits and leave the toon lvl 1, but if its HK (the only viable droid leader until a month ago) u should refund the gear/mats/credits for the whole droid faction lol
  • My guess is that HK’s leadership will be overpowered when combined with...HK-47’s rework. That’s kind of what they implied. Like imagine if he had an AOE like Lando’s, could spam infinite turns as long as your opponents have 2 or more toons alive.

    Simple solution to something like that. It’s why Kylo can’t crit with his aoe.

    HK leader ability is so OP compared to oh I dont know? Revans? Give me a break.....absolutely asinine

    Well, according to your repeated posts, we aren't getting Darth Revan any time soon anyway, so maybe they can just go ahead and leave HK how he is!

    Glad I have so many devoted followers lol....but throwing pie in my face aside( I'm a big man so I can take due ribbing) I would much prefer he stays as is vs nerfing his leader ability

    Btw....despite my prediction I am ready for the Darth when he drops....I'm a hater of KOTOR but a fan of star wars so i will grudgingly use him as long as he is meta

    but that is also what they were pointing out. they would have to make toons that wouldn't synergize with HK.


    I am torn, I love my droids and i think they are a solid faction, but HK is super limited in what teams he can counter due to being so reliant on TM gain and critting. I just dont think they will make him good enough to really matter, and any loss in their synergy will just leave them in the nether.

    From what they said, it sounded like it would not make him broken, but they would have to balance every droid’s kit that they release from now on with HK’s lead. That’s why B1 and Droideka can’t get crits like other characters.
  • of all the droids there isnt one legit leader for them except arguably hk. I say arguably because while his leader ability is an awesome droid leadership, the rest of his kit takes away from it. hes basically like rex. good lead w terrible everything else. except rex can cleanse at least. what are you thinking cg? that's right! you weren't thinking! you're never thinking :(
  • They take HK, an age-old character for the game who was THE droid lead. They destroy everything that made him a leader for droids just to give him the BB-8 treatment and make him a slave to serve their shiny new Revan, who will be meta for months. Sure, they refund the small amount of ability mats on his lead, but not the gear one put into HK, or the gear for the other 4 droids in a droid squad who are now left without a leader.
  • Maybe wait and see what his new leader ability is before you riot?

    Give Lobot HKs leadership power in addition to his current one

    Now I understand why B1 can't crit. It's to prevent him to gain 50%tm everytime he assists a separatist ally under 47's lead and gain more and more stacks.


    So as hk's leadership will be reworked can you rework the b1 aswell to add him critical chances ?

    lol very good point. if we are being politically correct and all, this should need to be done too.

    Fixed that for common forum etiquette. :wink:

    I agree, but a complete rework at this point in the game, either has to make him a solid counter to the upcoming meta, or its just going to be meh. I feel like they will make him fine, hopefully as good as he is now, but with the plan of him being in a holding pattern for future releases.

    And I’m quite sure paired with Traya, Sion, and Nilly, Darth Revan And Fallen Bastila are gonna be the real new meta.

    yeah which is why i said later, i feel like he will be good, but really just in a holding pattern for later releases of new droids.

    Doubt it, I think HK will provide the team with a very important synergy. But, 2 of the 3 will most likely be on the team. But we will see....Ordo might be useful as well...
