  1. FOTP is your Dark-side Rey. Unlike Rey, FOTP is late-game and REALLY hard to farm, but I digress. He’s a blast. I still run Phasma, unlike all the Old Bens and Landos out there, and FOTP is a blast. Nothing’s funnier than watching Phasma giving the whole team crits with Advantage and FOTP erasing a Geonosian Soldier, IG-88, or Rey instantly with a Double Tap. Also, Gun Down was reworked to give enemies Offense and Health Down, making it easier to kill tanks and attackers.

    My only complaint is his slow farming. Other than that, he’s still OP.

    5
  2. Strong glass cannon with issues surviving. 79 PVP, 92 GW, 88 Overall. 60 availability.
    This hero NEEDS MODS.
    Critical damage up will turn this guy into a wrecking machine, able to do an easy 8000 with his special. If you can gun down the enemy before they have much chance to respond, you’re good. Otherwise this hero will melt faster than most others. Combined with Phasma (L), Aayla, or any assist skill attackers he can be a beast. HP/Prot will always be an issue, so speed is also vital for this heroes’ modding.

    5
  3. Well i have him 7* and gear X, he deals like 6,000 per attack and with his special 12,000. When i use him with Poggle each attack deals 8,000 and the special gets to deal 17,000 so he its pretty good for a heavy attacker.

    5
    • Thanks Paco, I really liked this character so I will give him another try. I still have him at 5* but I’ll keep farming him now after reading your message :)

      0
  4. The recent update has screwed this character, which is the one I have put more farming effort during long 5 months and suddently he delivers so much less damage. Big waste of time, I feel like I want to stop playing this game now

    1
  5. Since the recent update his KEEN EYE ability needs to be redone. It doesn’t make any sense and his Special Ability needs to be redone aswell PR give him some potency. But mainly just fix his Keen Eye

    3
    • Nah, he’s till just as overpowered. The advantage rework has made Phasma a god, so he’s got a GURANTEED crit on his basic, followed up by attacking TWICE on crits and constantly calling Phasma assists.

      5
  6. Hey, did anyone else experienced dramatical DMG reduction for this guy?

    0
    • Yup, his damage output is down by almost half. Also i am getting a lot less bonus hits with him.

      0
      • Same here. A bit disappointing since I put in a lot of effort in this guy but sometimes the patches work in your favor, sometimes they don’t.

        3
        • Actually in this form he is near to useless. His general hit is average, sometimes it doubles but with Phasma you got almost the same but with extra slow and advantage for everyone. I’m pretty pissed off. I spent lot of time build him up to 6* and I started to develop him to 7* but now I’m thinking whether it worth 96 energy a day to get 1 or 2 shards.

          0
          • Yep.. I finally came on to release my rant.. They turfed his Dps and left his health at this bs level and the turn meter still sucks. Now instead of being a kick ass glass cannon, he’s now F U tie pilot. It’s disheartening putting so much effort into a toon you could really only use for one battle but would be so worth it because they they would clear out the sticking point. Which made the TP one of my faves. Now I look at the TP as a pitiful shell of their former glory.. Used to be so excited to lvl him up, now it’s just finishing what I started ( TP 14 shards from 7*). thanks for turfing my bragging rights on my TP swgoh.

            2
      • Yep….all the time/resources I spent upgrading this guy, and it’s all for nothing now. Way to change the game, guys. Eg. I have a level 73, 5*, with level VII armor, and maxed out abilities. Before update, I was double tapping for 8,000 per. Now? Barely double taps, and damage is only at about 40% now…I had one attack for 1,800, and one for 800 as well. Thanks for making me feel like I have wasted my time.

        0
  7. I’m a F2P player and I just got him to 5* this morning and he hits like a fucking meteor!! In a single turn I took out a 7* max Poe with FOTP while FOTP has offense up and advantage and he did 16,000 damage! So in my opinion, this guy is a must get.

    5
  8. Fresh update notes:
    Gun Down new effect: Deal Physical damage to target enemy and inflict Offense Down for 2 turns on a Critical Hit. New upgrade schedule as follows:
    Upgrade 1: +5% Damage
    Upgrade 2: +5% Damage
    Upgrade 3: Add Health Down with Advantage
    Upgrade 4: +5% Damage
    Upgrade 5: +15% Damage
    Upgrade 6: +5% Damage
    Upgrade 7: +15% Damage
    Keen Eye now only triggers once per enemy
    Keen Eye will now correctly trigger if an enemy is killed instantly from above 50% Health

    0
  9. Does anyone know if at 7 stars his AGI and STR swap has been fixed? I’m about to hit 6 stars and I don’t want to farm for 7* yet if he will lose attack power.

    0
  10. I suspect a lot of the negativity being directed at this character is frustration borne envy.

    If you have FOTP and have developed FOTP you LOVE FOTP. If you dont have FOTP and have watched helplessly as he shreds your 7* Gear 8 Toons to bits, you hate him and wish him “to be fixed”.

    The fact is his effectiveness depends on your ability to build a team around him that will allow him to shine.

    I regularly use him as my “Equalizer” or a lights out ‘Closer’. By that I mean I use him in situations that my 7*, Level 6/7 Ability, Gear 8, Level 70 IG-86 is struggling in. Even at 4*, Level 5 Ability, Gear 8, Level 70 – FOTP is an AllStar. I think of him in terms of being the Mariano Rivera of SWGOH.

    When FOTP is teamed up w/ Phasma/Lumi as leader, JC/Talia, Sid and IG-86/GS is very tough to beat.

    0
    • Problem is his speed and health. By the time its his turn he’s dead or on life support on PVP defense. On offense he’s a-mazing for GW and arena. I’m going to drop him when my Rey has Gear 8 because she has much better survivability and speed to compete in this meta.

      4
    • I think FOTP will make a comeback with the up coming meta shift

      0
    • No it is not envy it is frustration at a bug. His double tap is often a triple or quadruple tap and it either shouldn’t be or they should change the wording. It’s frustrating when leia gets 3 crits and downs a tank char in one go but that’s something she’s supposed to be able to do. When someone miraculously survives 2 shots from FOTP only for him to take a 3rd, it’s infuriating

      0
  11. Although I don’t have him yet, I could certainly say he is a glass cannon. In pvp,I’ve battled him a few times and always won bc of his arch-enemy: the resistance pilot. But in the few times he actually attacked my team, he does devastating damage to my other glass cannons and is pretty hard to target once a tank covers him.

    Overall, he is a bit squishy at times during play, but I’ll see if I can farm shards to get him since he just debilitates the enemy team :)

    0
    • What makes resistance pilot his arch enemy? Is it the slight speed advantage?

      0
      • Anyone with more speed in the realm of 125+ will go before him and in 1-2 turns he’s dead.

        4
        • Agreed RP has better speed and health. I have him 7*G8 and love that guy. He usually gets forsight on his first turn too. FOTP would be better if he had even a slight speed boost, but right now he’s too hard to farm and too slow to use in PvP, but if he survives, his attack is OP for sure. Double attack w/ crit can take out almost any toon in one go.

          4
  12. There seems to be a problem to me with his agility and strength modifier for 7*; they seem reversed. At least I hope they’re reversed since most of his physical damage and crit rating comes from his agility (at least for him).

    I’ve used him at 3*, level 65ish, armor 7, for some time now and if I can prevent him from dying, he has the potential to take characters down 60%+ with one attack (though if he get’s offense up and advantage from my first order officer, he easily one shots most characters). I just unlocked his character shard spot on dark side battles so here’s hoping I can get him up in ranks fast.

    5
    • Yes, there was a bug with AGI and STR on his 7* version. They fixed it in the “Yoda patch”. He now have 8 AGI and 5.3 STR.

      0
  13. Can we say that FOTP is a glass cannon before 7*, but turns to a real cannon by changing his main stat from agi to strength, thereby gaining 3.3 strength/level, 231 strength or 3696 hp in total, without sacrificing any damage?
    At 7* he is surely 5 star, if not op. But at 6 or less, just another 4 star glass cannon. Due to cash only status, 4 star in total.

    4
  14. Something is wrong with the game when a no name character is the most devistating attacker.

    0
  15. The stats are incorrect on some of these characters, like this one. I was going by this site as a guide and got screwed. There should be disclaimers that these are just guesswork.

    3
    • KC, we are not immune to a mistake. I double checked the data for FOTP and noticed that the STR and AGI modifiers used to calculate the stats for this particular character were swapped. It is corrected now and I apologize…in either case, this is a solid character to invest in.

      0
      • From 6* to 7* promotion, his STR and AGI stats swap. You pick up a bunch of points in STR but then actually lose points in AGI. At least, such is my case. At 7*, my FOTP has 8.1 STR, 5.3 AGI, and 4.4 INT.

        0
        • And I forgot to mention, his Double Tap’s bonus attacks… Immensely bugged. I’ve seen a FOTP’s get 4 bonus attack actions (so a total of 5 shots) from a single usage (even after the level cap increase patch, and WITHOUT advantage). Character is broken, ridiculously OP’d and definitely not a “glass cannon” as many would have you believe. He’s a cannon alright, but definitely not a glass one.

          0
        • You know, you’re right. I wonder if that’s a bug.

          0
          • Double-tap is definitely broken. Hopefully there’ll be a fix for it soon. As for the stats… part of me thinks they flip STR and AGI from the 6* -> 7* promotion to help reduce some of his damage out-put, but it changes him from being “glass-cannon” to border-line tank with vastly superior damage out-put compared to any other tank.

            And to correct myself, the 7* FOTP has 8.0 STR (not 8.1 as I mentioned last night). The 6* to 7* promotion DOES drop his Phys. Damage (displayed) a good bit, but he picks up ~ 2k HP. And his damage out-put doesn’t seem to drop much, if any in practical application.

            0
        • How the fuck would u get this guy to 7*?! Only by 2 hard missions?! Sometimes I even get 0/6 off of those… Are you heavily investing money and are lucky because u always roll him in packs or what?!

          0
          • FOTP is a paid character for now. I’d be happy with 5* right now, but I still have 80* to go to get there… 0/6 days suck major

            5
    • @KC – Instead of pouting like a child, help point out errors so they can be fixed. The community can only get better if we all contribute.

      @Kylven – Great site, keep up the good work.

  16. This is clearly a pvp character. In pve he’s not useful at all because he dies in no time, but in pvp, specially with the correct support (first order officer and/or phasma) he’s gonna dish out extreme ammounts of damage in a really fast time, wich ultimatelly will leave your enemy too weakened to have an efficient counterattack, even if he falls the enemy is already doomed. So depending on the situation he can be the worst (on pve, where survivavility matters more) or the very best (in pvp) member of your team. He has to be my favorite character besides phasma, because no matter how situational he is, he’s great at what he does.

    5
  17. I team up him with old daka and talia so he can kill people like crazy!
    When it’s a mixed team, I have old daka, ewok elder and luminara to keep his massacre going !!
    Pretty awesome character and does the most damage of all !!!

    5
  18. right now nobody hits harder then tie pilot however until gear level 8 tie pilot is slow and squishy then he hits gear 8 and picks up another 1000 hp and like 12 speed bringing out of the everyone attacks before me catagory and into the only dooku and sidious are faster catagory.

    5
  19. He’s a pilot with no ship that regularly hits for 3x more than most characters… really makes no sense. Pretty sure it’s a bug that I hope the fix rather soon.

    0
    • he hits for that much because his unique is crit dmg + crit chance. Apart from that, if you don’t upgrade his abilities like i have 6/6/5 (current max), then he hits rather normally. You know who else hits just about as hard as him? Geo, resistance pilot, leia, qgj, Luke (can crit for 10k snipe with boba lead), ig88. People seem to forget some characters b/c others don’t play them or don’t bring it to light but there are so many more characters people could upgrade. Also briggs is ridiculous too, forgot about him and his ally assist.

      0
  20. Got hit by a 5* gear VII FOTP using his crit skill in GW for 8.8k… Then he triple attacked me for 2.5k each hit. Subsequently two hit killed him with other two toons tho. If he was easier to farm he’d be 4 star for me.

    3
  21. Han and this guy. So fun.
    Hans taunt keeps him alive and getting more gos.

    He is critting for 1.6k, non Crit at 1k, and gun down at 2.2k, and all of these at 1 Star and no epic gear yet.

    5
  22. Easily killed unless you pair him with poe, but even then aoe will destroy him. Nvm about nightsister speed teams…fairly sucky character unless you have 1000’s to spend on his shards.

    2
  23. I have Captain Phasma, First order stormtrooper and the tie pilot and his chance to go 3-5 times in one round is insane! I want an entire first order team so I’m farming for the first order officer and hopefully roll Kylo Ren and see what I can do.

    0
    • So long as he doesn’t get nailed by the opposition due to his low health…

      4
    • you should also get FO officer….he A. hits for just about the same damage and B can increase someone else’s attack + advantage. Lastly, his pin down is ridiculous. I would also incorporate him into your lineup.

      0
  24. In late game FOTP is actually not very viable. A few things: first of all, without leveling him up to 5 stars or more his hits and health won’t be able to compare with those that are 5 stars or above. Secondly, it is pretty much impossible to get his stars up in a countable amount of time, so he would stay outclassed and useless for a long long time until everyone cannot upgrade anymore, but by that time the game would have expanded. Lastly, the advantage requires an enemy to be knocked down to low health BEFORE FOTP moves or he would lose all value, so you pretty much HAVE TO put another fast heavy hitter in the team AND invest a whole lot in him to keep him viable. If you don’t then FOTP does like 3k in one hit then gets scrubbed off the field. In all, he is only good at early stages and is hard to control in late game.

    3
  25. This guy is great but he has a hard time surviving the poggle/aoe fest at the top of my bracket. He might get 1 turn before he dies.

    0
  26. This character is insane! He’s kinda slow, and a little squishy. Captain Phasma’s leader ability with this guy on your team gets a little out of control.

    0
  27. Does the Grand Moff Tarkin Tighten the Grip ability increase his speed?

    5
  28. I hate to say it, but this guy is a must have. Level 44, lvl 6 gear, Double tap is one-shotting (with bonus attack – one-turning?) like crazy. CONSISTENT 2k+ dmg. Usually 2k-4k. Pretty rediculous. IMO far more powerful/predictable than Dooku. Wish I could play against myself to see if my combo is as hard to attack as it is good at attacking! Though I would just kill the FOTP first.

    I don’t want to spill all the beans on my combo, but with my FOTP I no longer use a dispeller to dispell taunt so i can kill the healers. I just gun-down Chewbacca and move on! He also makes quick work of Dooku!

    5
  29. Ok I don’t know about anyone else but I find this guy is like a glass cannon. I’m at level 40 atm and have this guy 2* with item level 5. He does consistent a 1k damage per hit without counting the amount of times he attacks twice and 3k damage with his second ability. Also it doesn’t say it but keen eye at level 2 gives him Advantage whenever someone goes into the wounded status (yellow health bar). This guy is amazing and I don’t see anyone using him, yes he does have almost no hp but the damage is def worth it if you can get a taunter out there

    4
    • It’s a long road to get there, but FOTP is an incredible toon in end-game. At 7*, his profile drastically gets beefier on the HP/Armor front. My FOTP is maxed out with Level 8 gear and sits at 12,500 hps, 117 speed, and 143 armor. All while porting around an incredible amount of DPS. So more like a plain cannon, rather than a glass one.
