  • Seems like Visas Marr may had found a home finally? 'Cause I'm not using CLS, Rey's nor CAT with him lol
  • Yeah, she is certainly the only ls healer I would put with him. And he cools down her revive quickly
  • Special 1 says Dark Harbinger instead of Boundless Force Throw

    Is his first special supposed to be named the same as Lord Vader’s first special?

    her spaming her ignore protection attack is going to be sick.
  • Hmm. Not counting GLs, LS UFU is Visas, Scav Rey, JTR, CAT. DS UFU is Kylo, KRU, Maul, Mara. Plus we want a Jedi Tank, and a Sith who could be anything but hopefully inflicts debuffs and uses Basics a lot.

    LSUFU: Visas
    DSUFU: Kylo
    Jedi Tank: OB
    Sith: Dooku

    How’d that go?

    OG Palp lead, Visas/Fulcrum, Mara, Old Ben/Juhani maybe?

    Scav Rey and Ahsoka Tano Fulcrum aren't needed anywhere else. So those are options as well.

    I think is a 3 tank combo. And after SK unleashed he solo the whole team ?

    DSUFU: KRU
    JEDI tank: Kenobi

    But the problem is that there is no proper leadership. The one leadership i can think of is sidious, but that leadership is old and need a buff
  • Anyway ... Here is a suggestion ...
    1. Create another toon for the leadership of unaligned force user (Rahm Kota)
    2. Write the leadership role into SK. Make him the leader that binds it together.
    3. Or u can rewrite his kit to have solo abilities. Similar to protection regen (Nest) or health regen. He is an assassin after all ....
  • Written in SK leadership:

    If the following critierals are met, all unit gain the following bonus:
    1. 50% change to a random ally and SK to assist
    2. +30 speed to all allies
    3. For every buff dispelled, SK recover 5% protection. For every debuff, SK recovers 5% health. All allies gain defense up / protection and health recover for 2 turns.

    Old ben lead I guess? His is one of the few that can just benefit anyone.

    So this character was clearly designed to be at Galactic Legend level while in Grand Arenas. Except he's going to be near-useless every other GAC because you guys are keeping 3v3 in the rotation? His second unique isn't even going to work in 3v3, and he has no synergy with basically anyone at all because he doesn't have a Sith tag.

    Dark Side and UFU means you can use him with GL Jedi Consular while Maul leads the mandalorians.

    Given the fact that Starkiller is far more accessible than Lord Vader, it's a pretty swift kick in the gut to be told something like that. It's a huge design oversight.

    If you watched Cubs' interview with the devs earlier today, they said that in a future update they are going to be updating SK and Gideon so that their uniques work in 3v3. They said "soon TM", so no telling how far out it actually is, but at least it's on their radar.

    Ah, I didn't see that Cubs had an interview - that's good to hear. My concerns are alleviated for now.

    LV

    I think he would have been joining LV in arena teams if that was still a thing. But it's not. With the roster use needed in GAC I doubt it.

    CFH asked if he was the first basic zeta excluding GLs.

    Good old CFH, never change.
    The CGDF is no more. Now we hate CG because of the change to the shipment tab. Say hi in our Discord! https://discord.gg/AmStGTH

    GAS was the first.
  • Is this the first aoe basic in the game?

    I think so, if you’re not counting something like Bad Batch. Daka, IG11, and Magmatrooper all could damage extra opponents but not all of them. (But notably, that wasn’t limited to just their turns… although their damage isn’t very high anyway.)

    Is GAS the only other non-GL Zeta Basic?
