  • Nice!
  • Thanks for taking away the expose! The other touch ups look great!
  • A bit underwhelming at first but not bad. I was hoping for a bit more aggressive JKA but all in all not bad.

    I knew the synergy would lean towards GR instead of Jedi...
  • I like it. I always feel like he can be a contender for a journey as well.

    Or a mythic battle. I hope we get a Mythic Battle for each era (Prequels, OT, Sequels)

    I think there is a good chance for that. Orrrr the genesion Tb map will be muy hard
  • Acho q Anakin é o personagem chave de star Wars deveria ser um dos personagens top igual Darth Vader . Mas insistem em lançar personagens novos e deixam outros jogados
  • The 100% TM (or bonus turn now) still staying on his unique?
    Maybe I should work on the P3 inifinite loop again :D

  • Lol so staying away from TM related stuff from now on I see
  • Hmm... I’m not sure. I would have thought he would have at least gotten a zeta. Oh, well, at least I don’t have to use a zeta on him. But why just a little touch-up when he could have gotten a mind-blowing rework?...

    Oh. OH, I see what you’re doing, CG! This is gonna be leading up to Anakin’s Hero Journey, isn’t it? Well, I will be ready, I can guarantee you that!

    He is still weak even after this. Sure, you seriously needed to rework his Special but still, why even highlight the Basic description? Nothing is changed. It was still at 80% before
    Its 70% chance currently
  • Kenobi and Tano get Zetas but the character that the whole of Star wars is (arguably) built around is still just canon fodder?!?!? ****? What gives?

    A little disappointed to be frank. He needs at least 1 ZETA. His reputation demands it!!!!

    Looks like it was 70% before. No idea what changed with the lead though.

    Maybe Anakin will get another kit upgrade like BSF and HK did once Padme is announced / revealed and that added synergy will have a zeta

    Maybe. It seems like they’re building up to a new leader...
  • Seems lame moving along...

    Zeta idea

    Righteous Fury Zeta: Whenever another ally falls below 50% Health or is defeated, Anakin takes a bonus turn and his next attack deals 100% more damage. If all allies are Galactic Republic, Anakin takes a bonus turn when another ally falls below 100% health.

    ^ It'd improve him, make him deadlier with Galactic Republic. Or make his Overwhelming Assault be unable to be countered as a zeta. Because he's still going to be a liability using that otherwise.

    His kit seems REALLY weak compared to the reworked Ashoka and Obi Wan (which was always good). :(
  • I wanted him to get a second special ability.

    I think they’re building up to a new Anakin, and I think it would be hilarious if it was Jedi “Master” Anakin Skywalker. Take a seat.
  • The change to his lead is way OP
