Trandoshans and replacing Dekas

Post by Molly on 2014-10-08, 1:22 am

So me and Apex were talking about how Deka is pretty much a dead class, and the idea to replace them with Trandoshans came up. Specifically, how Trandoshans appeared in Republic Commando. I think it would be an awesome replacement, and it would parallel the Wookiee class that rebels have as well.

Hmm that is an interesting idea.  Any rough ideas for the for the setup would be like (weapons, abilities, etc)?

We were just kind of shooting the shit, but one of the things we mentioned was them having some type of shotgun as their main weapon. Melee would be their secondary basically, but they would be somewhat weaker than a wookiee for the fact that they also have a shotgun, unless you went full melee Trando. Idk, we were both just saying how people hardly play Deka and it would be cool to see it replaced with another class that would actually be more fun to play. I know there are a few Deka fans out there but when you're actually in the game it's a rare class to see used.

No need for Trandoshans. The developers are working on Dekas already along with dueling. http://community.moviebattles.com/forum/announcements/developer-diaries/1162894-developer-diary-dueling-and-dekas

So it's more balanced.

Deka's only underplayed because it's been nerfed into oblivion as a response to it being OP in the past. All the nerfs to it basically only make one or two point setups viable. It gets boring not being able to use it for anything other than chokepoint defense. Quick deploy and power management hopefully will help it see some more usage, but it definitely needs some buffs to useless abilities like firepower 3 and projector 3.

Yeah, I imagine after the next update we'll see a resurgence in deka usage. Can't say however that people won't start crying about how its getting "buffed", even though its not really much of a buff.

I mean the main problem is that the class has been either way too overpowered or way too underpowered. I think the class is just overall bad for the game, but I've always hated Dekas at any rate.
