how long will it take to kill a jedi? i think it should take a while to kill a jedi. the team that earned it did a lot of "hard" work or should i call it playing. it should take a ship to kill the jedi and if the AI for the jedi is smart the jedi wont attack a ship or even try to hide from it.:slsaber:

A Jedi should be tough - but I would hope not too tough. I don't think ships alone should be able to take them down, either. If they come under enough fire power from ground forces, they should feel the pain. I'd hate to be faced with a practically invincible Jedi because there is no friendly ship in sight.

They really need to get the balance right for this sort of thing, because it will make or break the game.

I think that pandemic studio's is making a good choice to only put jedi in the game as npc's (non-player character's) and only to be able to earn them in battles and not be able to play them yourself. It will be just like bounty hunter's. :jawa :jawa

It should be a "where you hit him" sort of thing him he's charging you, obiously your about to die because he can block all of your shots. But if you sneak behind him, you will have a better chance of hitting him. well there's my 2 cents

Me neither. This could break the game. It might give the team who acquired the Jedi an unfair advantage. Especially when the other team sucks and you're stuck on it...

yes i think the jedi will dissapear after 5-6 kills. I don't think at all it would be an aunfair balance in game, it would be 'OK'

i think there will be a balance. maby the jedi will have to power back up his force and to do that he has to sit there and could be shot so his allys will have to protect him.

can a jedi respawn???

I think that Jedi will do alot of dammage on battlefields but for a very limited time. This bonus point could be useful to regain power for your team and win a match instead of the bonus armor points for example wich could stay longer but are less «apparent».

They probably could be killed but it would be hard, unless you flanked them right. Second, i'm pretty sure calling jedi into battle would have to be earned and will only be a one time advantage. But that's just my opinon. :jawa :jawa

I agree, I read somewhere that a jedi would have a masskill efect (something like: Luke killed... ,Luke killed... , Luke killed, etc).

Because of this Jedi's will probably stay for a short time.

if they are that powerful then they should only be unlocked if your team holds a base for a really long time or has a crapload of kills. the team should really have to earn them, i mean it should be damn hard. something to brag about not just a simple "hold a bunker for 15 minutes and get an uber powerful jedi". IMO

I think I read that only the defending team can call a jedi as an advantage for the planet they picked to defend. I could have gotten that confused with something else I read though. I will doublecheck.

Edit: Here is what I read... from ign.com (http://pc.ign.com/articles/492/492187p1.html) ...

If you win the location or locations, you earn a Bonus for that planet. That bonus is a special ability or character, such as the ability to call up Darth Vader or to regenerate faster, that stays with your team for the rest of the campaign.
The special bonuses are unique and interesting whether it's a special appearance by a Star Wars powerhouse character or a strategic militaristic advantage. For instance, if you pick Luke Skywalker as your special bonus, he'll appear for a limited time in your battle with his lightsaber as a fully fledged Jedi. Your screen instantly starts reeling off deaths left and right, "Skywalker kills trooper, Skywalker kills captain, Skywalker..." and so forth. In essence he's your ace in the hole. Players can pick a variety of specials, from characters such as Luke, Duku and Darth Vader (who, when he appears, can be heard by his heavy breathing before he's seen), or qualities, such as regeneration, additional reinforcements, bonuses to vehicle, or full line of sight on enemies.

So I was incorrect, it's not who is defending the planet, it's who won the planet. It also sounds like the jedi will come for a time limit, maybe 30 seconds, and kills as many opponents as he can before that time is up.

i thinkt he jedi will kill a few people then disappear. they probably have a time limit maby you will have to do somethink when you pick a jedi to determine how long he will stay on the battlefield

"Skywalker kills trooper, Skywalker kills captain, Skywalker..."

You see, that's what I mean.

They are veeeery powerfull, so I agree there probably is a time limit (Luke has a tight schedule). But if the attacking team can also use such a bonus, it could get very interesting (you could clean a whol battlefield, accomplishing objectives then becomes very easy...).

yeah, you already said that. But I am pretty sure the jedi will have a time limit based on what the review said. I don't think a jedi will come and kill 3 people and leave. That wouldn't be much of an advantage.

Ehhh... I think that Jedi should be available for the crap-team that's losing horribly. After awhile of losing, perhaps the losing team can call up Vader or Luke or any other jedi chump to give them the edge they need to get back into the game rather than be massacred.

Only in Single-Player Mode, the Jedi should be. Screw things up in MP, it will.

Amen.
It'd be just stupid to hand the special weapon to the team that's already winning. That's like giving character to the bully.

BTW, if you all would just read the article excerpt that's been posted twice, you'll notice that it says "if you pick Luke Skywalker as your special bonus, he'll appear for a limited time in your battle with his lightsaber as a fully fledged Jedi"

Hmm, I guess that means he'll have a time limit. Duh...

I don't think that jedi will screw up multiplayer, the whole point of putting them in mp is to make it better. I think that by giving the advantage to the team that won the previous game, their adding some strategy to the game. Also, if the team was smart, they would save the jedi advantage for when they will be in a tough spot and need to get though a very tough enemy position to capture a critical spawn point, that is, if they chose the jedi as their advantage. :jawa :jawa

all you have to do is volley fire the jedi and he will be toast. the saber can only block one or 2 bolts at the same time. So, in a small unit game. Jedis will fall to any sort of planing. or carry the Sameralla ( what ever creature that blocks the force ) in a backpack with you.

Or just strafe him with a TIE, that ought to do the trick.

Umm, i'm not exactly sure that'll work. We don't know if you'll be able to put explosives on yourself, but maybe if your rebels, a bothan spy could. Or maybe, you could toss a few grenades his way, unless he can throw them back at you with force push. :jawa :jawa

I think he means crash the ship on top of the Jedi. If that is at all possible, it would probably be a sure way to kill them.

Yeah, that's why I'm gonna be a Republic Gunship pilot. I'll crash into a cluster of enemies, killing them all! Hahahahaha! Anyway, I think that a Jedi either lasts a certain amiunt of time/kills, or goes away when hurt a bit, ie, breaking a nail or something. So, massed firepower could work. 10 troops firing E-Webs might work. And if they doesn't work, just run away constantly.

Based on what I've read in previews, jedi will stay a certain amount of time before exiting the field. I think it's subject to change though, not quite sure.

So forget your tactics because stormtroopers aren't smart. They could never kill a jedi. If you run into one there's only one good tactic: RUN AWAY!!!
