A long time ago on a Samsung Galaxy far, far away.
I'm not normally into mobile F2P games, but this game has just enough hooks to get me to play. I've only spent 10 bucks on the 100 crystals a day thing but I think I might have a problem...
So here's how this works:
There are several modes but the basis is that there this is a 5v5 team based game. You unlock Star Wars themed characters from all 7 movies to fight on your team. Each dude or dudette has 2-4 abilities, with the more generic people having fewer abilities vs the big names. There are achievements, and daily quests and this is definitely free to play. The basic components are:
Your cap is based on level, which just got raised to 70. I want to say it takes about 8 hours to fill up your bar, but I honestly don't know. This energy is spent on the Light side and dark side battles. Early battles take 6 energy. and if you win with 3 stars, you can "sim" the battle over and over as long as you have the energy. At battle level 5 it goes up to 8 energy.
If you clear a whole level, you can do "hard mode" battles, which cost about twice the easy level energy and generally award better loot and character shards. you can do a specific hard battle 3 times a day for free.
a separate mode unlocked early, this mode also does not have a sim limit, offers character shards on some fights, and rewards ability modules.
you use this to upgrade and train characters.
This is the freemium currency. You can spend real money on this, i think 10 bucks gives you 1200 crystals. You can spend crystals to refill your energy, purchase credits, Chromium cards, refresh shipments, and purchase character shards.
Various mode currencies:
Catina battles, Galactic war, and Arena game modes reward currency for wins, which can be spent on characters or equipment.
There are Key Card Battles, Catina Battles, Lightside/Darkside battles, Arena, Galactic War, and Challenge modes.
Key card battles
seem unfinished. You get a credit key card and a training drone key card for free once a day. if you don't use it that day you lose it. Once you use it it unlocks a 50 energy battle that's stupid easy and rewards you either credits or training drones. The battle is unlocked for an hour, and although it says you can only do it 3 times, I was able to do it 5 times in a row.
is the asynchronous PVP option. You take your 5 peeps against a similarly powerful team (literally based on the total power level of the group). If you win you go up in rank. if you lose, you stay the same. Every day you are rewarded based on your rank. You don't litterally play against anyone, just a person's team.
is basically horde mode. It's PVP where the results of the previous battle persist from game to game. You can use your whole roster, and if one of your army dies, they are dead until you win or reset. You can reset once per day.
I don't know if they're random but sometimes it's just attackers allowed or just tanks. Or sometimes it's boba fett and he gets healed. Fuck Cad Bane though.
There are several important characteristics of your people. They basically are level, rarity, gear level and ability level. These things are calculated to give you an expected power level of characters.
Your account level is the max a character level can be. Training droids and credits are used to level up people.
Most characters start between 1 and 4 stars. The stars multiply the base stats of the character. To gain rarity, you must collect character shards. 1->2 stars is 15 shards. 2->3 is 25 3->4 30. 4->5 is 65. I have no idea what's after that because I'm a scrub.
Your character has several statistics. I have no idea what they are, don't ask. But you equip gear earned from fights to increase these stats. there are 6 slots per character, when all are filled you can "upgrade" their gear to the next tier. They're colored green blue and purple, just like wow.
Each character starts with an ability to attack and maybe do something else like buff or debuff a character. These abilities can also be leveled up. There are also passive characteristics that can be leveled as well.
So the cool thing is that several of the modes allow Allies. These are people you can friend when you're a certain level and they let you bring a 6th character in. Under the allies section, you can find your ally code. If you use a friended ally, you get twice the ally points (20 instead of 10) and these points are used to purchase bronze cards that give low level characters or equipment for free. You get like 6-8 of them per day for free (every 20 minutes) My phone is charging so I can't find my code. i'll pretty up the OP after I put the kid to bed.
