Nicogrch Does the Math! Guide to Who’s the Best Potential Characters at Level 80!

Nicogrch a Community Members sent the below info via Discord.  I love people who use math and equations when coming up with best characters, etc..  Check out what he has to say below.

Good evening Lord Skunk.
I am not sure if it is any interest for you guys, but I have had a quick look on the statistics given by SWGOH cantina for the level 80.

I have given a score to each character on Offense (Speed, Damage, Phy Crit, Armor Penetration) and Defense (Health, Armor). This score does NOT take into account the different abilities of the specific characters.

I can give you the exact formula but the idea beyond ‘Offense’ is to calculate the corrected_damage (taking into account Crit chance and Armor Penetration) * speed.

For ‘Defense’ the idea is to calculate how much Damage a character can take after using the damage reduction implied by his armor.

Offense stats vs Defense stats @lvl80

As you can see, Rey is by far the #1 damage dealer and she is not as squishy as Greedo, Darth Maul, Sidious (who doesn’t look that interesting anymore).

Yoda (mainly because of his AOE), Resistance Trooper , Resistance Pilot, FOTP, GS, IG-86 are good damage dealer as well.

Ima Gun-Di, Ayala Secura, First Order Stormtrooper and NightSister Initiate seem to be very interesting as they deal more damage*speed than average and can absorb significant damage.

On the other side, Coruscant Underworld Police, Ugnaught, Grand Moff Tarkin, General Veers, Clone Sergeant seem to remain lackluster.

If you want some more info on this do not hesitate to contact me: [email withheld]

In the meantime, many thanks to you and your team for your Live Streams and work on SWGOH
