In Summary

Red Wolf makes some very important points in his video. From one side, it’s important to understand the fundamentals of Hero Showdown. Knowing what your hero’s strengths and weaknesses are is important for making the most of them. Picking an appropriate partner is also extremely important. Having a combination of a lightsaber carrying hero plus a ranged weapon hero is the way to go.

Like in any competitive gaming situation, communication is vital. SWBFII doesn’t have the best communication system but there are ways around that. On PC, you can still use voice chat, however, keep in mind that there is no push-to-talk functionality. It can become annoying after a while. In addition, picking a partner that you’re familiar with is also another important aspect to keep in mind. If you don’t have someone to partner with, then stop by our forums and the Greenie Weenie master list that Red Wolf maintains.
