Droidekas deserve a buff

Post#1 » Tue Feb 06, 2018 3:52 pm

A lot of us worked really hard to get high-level dekas. As virtually every other unit in the game gets a buff it's about time these guys returned to their place of prominence in the game. Plus it would help the Contraband economy as many would hoard to upgrade.

They were so dangerous in the movies that Jedi ran from them. Here 3 jump troopers fly by a lvl 25 and they fall apart!

Before the frag chase and buffs they were dangerously annoying targets that required some thought. Now, as I read before, they are sports cars. They look pretty but are basically useless.

Well stated. Let's go back to the future and make them relevant again!

+1 yes please. Although I suspect they have little incentive to make dekas 'arder as dead dekas = potential money.

But yeah: without even getting into the buffs to jumps and turrets, the trap buffs way back when really put a damper on deka usage as a bit of bad luck meant an embarrassing rebuild. And it happened so frequently I almost never use my deka and only sparingly use the deko.

Some consideration does need to be paid towards wars, where L50s are still pretty deadly - and balancing that between PvP where they might as well be fathiers.

Devs probably read this and think that they need to add more levels to the dekas, lol

My droidekas are always upgrading or in repairing as they always die in the first attack to my base... Yeah... I really loved my Dekas in the time of Windows SWC before the Armory... The Oppressor was really a killing machine...

Now they are just museum pieces... Both die too fast, are too expensive to upgrade, take long to repair, and ocupy the worker droid for 7 days just to upgrade a level!

If at least we could use CB to repair both dekas instantly like we use alloy for the traps, that would be a good start.

I'm torn. On the one hand.. please god no. On the other.. I would totally stop my deka at 54 and my deko at 59 to name them LIV and LIX.
