Anakin + General Skywalker = :O

Abbreviations;
- General Skywalker = GAS
- Anakin = JKA

With GAS being added to the game and since its logical that 501st will synergize with him (501st is missing s 5th)

How is GAS gonna deter players from using JKA and have an even stronger version of Shaak + 501st & JKA squad?

JKA will have a full GR squad surrounding him leading to utter chaos & >100K dmg AoE's.

Obviously the kit reveal may change this problem but I dont see a way where GAS can provide boosts so strong to 501st that people would use a full 501st squad over a GAS + 501st Clones + JKA.

Unless JKA gets hard nerfed

Thoughts?

  • My guess is a highly synergistic 501st lead.

    The real question is why create a new (nonsensical) acronym for a very old character? Anakin is called Jedi Knight Anakin, thus JKA.

    When did sadme create a new acronym? That's the bigger question?

    When did sadme call anikan anything but jka that's the real question? Yeah I spelled it like it sounds. And like everyone in film pronounces it. Especially padme!

    He edited op after my post

    Yeah
  • It's GS for General Skywalker. No one ever called him "General Anakin". That's like calling Darth Vader "Lord Darth".
    Never make the mistake of believing forbearance equates to acceptance, or that all positions are equally valid.

    Yes. Please for the love of the force stop calling him General Anakin. You sound five years old.

    I like it too.

    Because it's easier to edit in lol
  • I imagine there will be a conditional unique that will only trigger if the entire team is 501st under a GS lead making it more beneficial than not to plug in snips or another new 501st toon over JKA.
  • We have no way of knowing until we see General Skywalker's kit. Raising alarms at this point is of little value.
    Still not a he.

    Well most everyone who plays this game takes it too seriously. :) I just like literary consistency. To me it’s like saying President Donald instead of Trump or Professor Charles instead of Professor Xavier.

    Might be time to raise the alarms they just released his kit. This is a whole new level of power creep.

    I run Padme in arena and I see something I could plausibly beat.

  • I like GAS best for many reasons:
    It is kind of funny.
    GA would be confusing to most as there isn't a GA in game
    GS is confusing as there is already 4 units in the game with the initials GS so using GAS lets everyone know which one I'm talking about without clariification

    @YaeVizsla - meant to follow up on this earlier, as I also run Padme in arena (mostly R3 team with R7 JKA). Just curious as to what you see the weaknesses in GAS's team might be. And would you swap someone (GMY?) in for C3P0 vs. GAS instead? Normally I run Padme, JKA, GK, AT and 3p0 since my shard is mostly R5-R7 DR/Malak.

    I run the same team, and when I look at GAS it doesn't seem that different from fighting Shaak troopers except you don't have to get around Fives first since GAS starts of with supertaunt and doesn't give the troopers any form of bulk or sustain. And nobody on the team resists percent health damage, so courage will do a number on anyone you need it to. Clones tend to fold quickly once Shaak Ti is gone. I don't see it being any better when they have two thirds the health and protection.

    But we'll see how this pans out soon enough. But I see a situation where Padme soft counters GAS, GAS soft counters Drevalak, and Drevalak soft counters Padme.
    Still not a he.

    Sounds good - thanks for the insight. I was thinking along similar lines. I have one player who runs R3 Shaak and R5-R7 Clones in arena and my team can take it out easily. I was just wondering if there was something I was missing - and you nailed it - GAS doesn't provide the Clones with extra healing or protection recovery (or extra speed) like Shaak does. Good stuff.

    ETA: The player I was referring to has 5* GAS unlocked. lol. So I might get to test this sooner than I thought. :D
