The worst for me is Wiggs + Lando + Palpatine + (ST Han or Imp Guard). Jawa Engineer lets me alpha down one big threat consistently, but if either Lando or Palpatine survives long enough to get a taunt in front of them they can basically solo my team.

Alternately, replace one of the heavy hitters with Baze or Shore Trooper. Turn 0 taunt fucks me hard.

Fortunately I'm seeing a lot of Vader / Palp / Boba Fett teams popping up on my shard. It's a decent combo but not nearly so infuriating as the Rebel turn meter cheese.

Fleets: I use Mace for capital, front row is Poe, Ahsoka, Biggs. Back row is Maul and Fett.

Primary enemies Ahsoka. Hit Biggs with Maces taunt, then hit him again with Mauls retaliation ability. He target locks every ship that attacks. Hit them with Mace and Fetts multi locked attacks. Profit.

Latest cheese is Leia + Lando + Shoretrooper + BiggsWedge.  Lando needs to nerfed with that escalating special.  Shoretrooper taunt + Rez as a tank is bananas.

FWIW highest I've gotten in daily ladder is maybe 87 with a 82 squad of Jedi + Yoda.

The Jedi squads are fun and can be pretty effective, but there are a few characters that just wreck them (see the aforementioned Darth Maul, and there are a couple others).  When I am doing PvP, I basically refresh until I find an opponent with at least 3 Jedi, no matter their combat power.

TheWalrus - dumb question, but "back row"?  Does it matter that they are in the back row?  I admit that I don't pay much attention to the ship stuff, other than to get through the dailies.

Seems that the RNG doesn't give a shit, all ships like all toons are up for getting wrecked. That's merely my formation.

Whole bunch of UI improvements this week.

Most notably you can set combat animation to 2x or 4x speed - making ships playable. Also everywhere you upgrade things you can just pick a level and it tells you the cost now.

Very good .  Simple but nice improvements like daily challenges which advance to the next when you're done , so you can avoid scrolling.  Single tabbed store.  Also reduce daily duels from 3 to 2.

Yeah, Chopper is the login reward for the month. I expect a really OP team the way some of the newest releases have been. Krennik + Death Trooper fills out my Empire team nicely. I've got almost a full 2nd Sith team now with the KOTOR2 characters.

Goddamn I wish I'd thought-through making a Scoundrel team earlier. My Fett, ST Han, Dengar, Chewie, Greedo team cleared the last credit heist today. I only hit the 2.5mil prize but when you've been struggling for money all year that's a fortune. I should actually be able to level-up all these characters soon.

If only purple gear came so abundantly.

Seconded. I was gonna say if you can clear the 70 level, you can clear the 80. 80 feels easier to me, frankly. And I didn't make that many improvements. Odd.

Also ditto on the purple bullshit. Every character needing that lvl 5 fusion reactor isn't just a cock block, it's a glorious cock wall that kicks you in the cock if you get close enough. Paid for by the cocks. Jesus.

Speaking of Sith, a team of Vader, Dooku, Palpatine & Maul lead by a 3 star Nihilus is what I am running with for a lot of things.  It is an amazingly fun and effective combination.  Nihilus makes the Sith teams very OP.  I had been struggling through GW for months with all the crazy OP teams towards the end nodes, but now I slice through them like hot butter.  And Nihilus has made Dooku crazy good.  Works well enough in PvP, too.

So if you been sitting on your sorry little 3 star Nihilus wondering what the fucking point of it was, believe me, there is a point.

Yeah, this is pretty infuriating... its made worse by the fact that over time I'm swimming in hundreds and hundreds of other purple top shelf items that no-one needs.  It's not that Rebel teams need x and Sith teams need y... every team needs the exact same items (more or less) as a gateway.  So even the trading post is a useless piece of shit... we all have the same trading needs and noone has a surplus.  I get it, cash shop needs to shop cash... but meh, there's not even a really viable slow road.  Its dangerously close to pissing people who *have* ponied some pennies up.

will have to test Nihilus a bit... my Empire/Sith team already cruises through GW, but maybe this will be a fun enhancement... would it work against Wiggs in the arena?

It's not even the fusion reactor that's the problem it's that goddamn Mk3 Holo Projector salvage that is the component. It's used EVERYWHERE, not just the fusion reactor. It's one thing if the purple is a paywall item and I'm not whaling enough to get it. It's not, it's just an item that has a shitty low drop rate in very few places that needs to be given to EVERYONE. It's TERRIBLE fucking game design rather than money-grubbing design and that infuriates me even more.

For example, Chewie is sitting at VI because I only have 6 of the things and I need 20 to bump him up. However, I need 20 per character that needs to move up a level from VI on up. That means I need 600 to move my 30 characters at that point up one level. On average I get about 3 a day.  why so serious?

Speaking of Sith, a team of Vader, Dooku, Palpatine & Maul lead by a 3 star Nihilus is what I am running with for a lot of things.  It is an amazingly fun and effective combination.  Nihilus makes the Sith teams very OP.  I had been struggling through GW for months with all the crazy OP teams towards the end nodes, but now I slice through them like hot butter.  And Nihilus has made Dooku crazy good.  Works well enough in PvP, too.

Really now. I may have to swap him out instead of my 5* Emperor and give him a shot then.

My default Sith team is Emperor lead, Vader, Maul, Dooku, Sidious. Dooku usually dies pretty quick but he's L72 and higher than Savage or the newer sith folks. I was going to dump him for the Sith Trooper since all the others provide nice debuffs to bump him up and he'll self-heal with his debuff main action.

Dooku with Nih lead usually wins me in arena.  He is a quick slice machine!

The thing that does it is that Nihilus turns your team's protection into health, and then you get crazy health steal bonuses as well.  What often happens when fighting a powerful team like a rebel team is they alpha strike me (if their speed is high enough) and maybe take out one or two of my team if I am unlucky.  But once that is past, it is showtime.  Dooku will get blasted, but then he counters and heals himself no problem.  He is almost unkillable once the alpha strikes are done.  Maul, Vader and Palpatine all have AOE attacks that will fully heal them as well. 

My three star Nihilus is a much better lead than my 7 star Palpatine.

I mean, I am doing alright without it for now, so I won't stress too much.  I hover around 120 in PvP rank, and occasionally finish the day below 100.  And GW is easy mode with the Nihilus team.

If I may continue to harass, what gear levels, and do you have a standard mod or do you tailor for character?


Nihilus is Level 10 for gear.  All health mods.  I try to go for speed bonuses for all characters, Nihilus is at 138 total.  His damage is just okay, he is mostly here for the Lead abilities.
Vader is Level 10.  All health mods.  Speed is 154.  He is very durable, and putting the DoTs on and doing his saber toss thing occasionally makes the difference.
Maul is Level 11.  4 health mods, two defense mods (simply because they have good speed bonuses on them).  Speed is 143.  If he survives until his first turn, that usually means I win.  Crazy damage and full heal.
Palpatine is Level 10.  4 health mods, two defense mods (same as above).  Speed is 160.  His damage is great, and that means the heal is great as well.  If he gets the AOE stun off on the first turn, game over.
Dooku is Level 11.  4 health mods, two Crit chance mods (which is a waste, because they cannot crit with Nihilus...but speed bonuses again).  Speed is 196.  Freaking energizer bunny.  Can only be killed if he has a shock or stun on him that prevents him from countering or health stealing, or sometimes the cheesy rebel strikes where he gets hit a billion times before he gets to counter.  He is insanely good when paired with Nihilus, at least once you gear him up.

It is still an iffy proposition going up against Wiggs teams, because on top of being OP, they also tend to be very fast and get in a lot of turns in the beginning.  Usually what happens is they go nuts with alpha strikes on my guys, and depending on the RNG I sometimes will get wiped before I even really get started.  If I do make it past the first onslaught and have at least most of my team intact, I almost always win.

This team also destroys all Jedi and Droid teams (even Zeta Qui Gon is no trouble at all).  The droid teams will get in good alpha attacks, but then I basically always end up winning anyway.  Other Sith/Empire teams can be tricky, depending on their makeup.

Ultimately, this team is just fun to play.  A Wiggs team is probably better for PvP, but fuck that.  And again, GW is a blast with a Nihilus team, I only struggle with 50k+ insane teams (and usually not even then), and even then I always have many squads in reserve to finish them off.  I usually go through GW with just this team, without losing one character.  No doubt at all that this is the best GW team.

I should probably add that I play for fun, not to min/max or get the highest rankings.  I have never put a cent into this game and likely never will. 

Also thinking about swapping out Vader and putting in Sidious in the above mix for a lot more speed.  But at gear level 9, Sidious seems too squishy yet and I am not sure he is adding enough.  I like Vader, but it seems too often in PvP that he doesn't get his saber toss off in ideal conditions.
