    Hey I'm getting into celebration for free today. What should I yell at the devs

    Take your ally code and they'll give you free shards. No idea how many, but take it.

    Also if you're feeling generous, give them my ally code as a finders fee for telling you about it.

    J/K :)
    but just in case, my code is 461-317-185

    Lol they just fucked Palp leads against Malak teams.

    It's amazing how bad cg is at this

    This game has always been very hostile to its free to play players, but within the last 3-4 months they have become even more hostile than ever before, going so far as to nerfing F2P options in arena so that the only way to succeed is locked behind paywalls and bleeding edge content.

    Can't have those filthy F2P players taking top arena spots.

    Unfortunately I don't think my feedback will change their business model.
    Fortunately they were very nice and super cool and into all of it. We all stopped talking to look at the panel display once for a repeat of the fallen order trailer then they geeked out a bit.
    Extra fortunately they apparently we're partying with my boss this weekend so I got a little extra hookup. I now have enough crystals to live above the common people and have forgotten your issues

    They made hoth rebel solider needed in platoons, and required for a mission this phase of TB.

    They're really shittin' it up recently

    Mostly joking about the wealth ruining me part. Including the 1k for ally code they gave me 6k I think because I missed all the other days of the con and would have gotten 1k each day if I'd been there working the whole event

    Not bad. That'll make a significant dent in getting a character up to 7*.

    Since I went and deployed to platoons, guess I won’t be completing that mission.

    Hopefully there's much bitching on the official forums. That is a really bad change to platoons and to TB in general.

    They said they are done tinkering with it, since the Geonosis TB will be their new money draw for platoons always requiring brand new characters. But if the Hoth TB is fundamentally broken they need to hear strong feedback about that.

    Guessing for the new TB you'll need at least GK, Ahsoka, and Anakin for the special mission a la rolo/ipd unlocks.

    Maybe need bugs for the other?

  • Options
    LucascraftLucascraft Registered User regular
    Those reworks look pretty good. Anakin didn't get a zeta, and he still needs one. But overall they look really good.

    Too bad HK47 can just throw a grenade at a pack of Jedi and kill them all in one shot.

    I should unlock GK in like 2 more tank raids. Been waiting for him for a while to replace old ben... though I'm really not prepared for what looks like a terrible time gearing him up.

    I suppose I should be grabbing ahsoka shards from fleet store. I'm nowhere near jka though and my hard modes are full up

  • Options
    LucascraftLucascraft Registered User regular
    Yeah, gearing GK is a nightmare. As I recall he needs 500 carbantis.

    mcpmcp Registered User regular
    I like Ahsoka. She was my first 7* character.

    Been sitting at g10 forever. Anakin is at g9.

    It's gonna be a while till I can gear them though. Got all these Kotor toons that need to hit g12 first. :bigfrown:

    I’m kind of shocked that it’s only 2 zetas for the three reworks.

    I was figuring at least 4 zetas.

  • Options
    LucascraftLucascraft Registered User regular
    I have a theory about Anakin.

    I'm guessing that his rework is only partially complete right now. I bet that he will get a Zeta, but I also bet that his Zeta gives him synergy with Padme, so they can't put it into the game yet.

    I'd been kind of idly working on Anakin over time, if just because of the quest that requires having him at G12. The rework and potential emphasis in the next TB helps reinforce that. I've got him at G11 and Ahsoka at 10, so it'll be expensive and time consuming to get them up there, but might as well get ahead of things. Same deal with the Geonosians, though they're a pair of 10's and a pair of 9's.

    Clones getting a bit of focus would be nice as an excuse to build them up a bit, but unless they decide to open the taps on the gear faucets, we're talking enough projects to last out the next half decade at this point (for the non-whales, that is). Add in other ongoing projects (finishing off Bossk, grinding ships to 7* for the Falcon, and the clusterfuck of effort needed to get Malek sometime in the next 3 rounds of his appearance) and they really seem dedicated to making it impossible to even slow the rate at which one falls behind.

    Yes, yes, as I often have to note; it's their business model and $150-200m/year only buys so many cocaine covered escorts, but at least make it a touch less transparent. I like getting a retouch on older characters and having content that will reward previous and current work on them. I dislike the lack of benefit of the doubt this team has earned making every such announcement feel like I'm just waiting for the other shoe to drop.

    Oddly enough I unlocked GK today right before the update. I was able to put him at g7 but ran out of money to level him to finish up to g8... I just looked up the rest of his required gear. I knew it was bad. But... That's so many carbontis. I need 200 (2 carbs 2 stun guns) just to go to 9. I uh, am just like wow.

    How underpowered can he be and still be better than a g9 old ben? I of course still need to ability him up and get him some mods which I'll do when I'm ready to use him

    It's going to take me 1 million years to finish Carth and Juhani.

    I refresh each twice a day and I'm getting like 2 shards.

    I guess the plan is make the second wave of folks getting Darth Revan have to drop some coin too?

    Anakin, Ahsoka, and General Kenobi can beat the Darth Revan meta.

    Only until they further buff Revan or make surgical nerfs to the Jedi.

    Can't have the peasantry rising up (the arena ranks), and these are all old enough characters that far too many people have them in hand.

    Sorry for the cynicism. The only way I could see this standing would be if CG expected to see an uptick in purchases related to gearing up one or two of those (Kenobi has been in the arena enough I expect there are plenty of G12's of him already, and Anakin has that quest to take him to 12, so Ahsoka might be the one who a lot of people have left behind, and even she used to show up in the arena a long long time ago.

    To circle back around, I have a hard time believing that they'd have a paywalled character, another paywalled character to build up the first, and then drop a rework that let people stand up to at least the first (unless it's meant to inspire people to commit to getting Malak to get the most out of their Darth Revan investment.

    Which is funny, because it puts those of us who lack one or both at mutually exclusive goals; gear up these characters to try to keep up, but at the cost of not having that gear to upgrade the Old Republic characters we need to get them ourselves, extending the time frame Malak level teams, at least, have an advantage.

    I was thinking of getting an "auto clicker" app to burn through my friendship tokens on Bronze packs.

    Will that get me banned?

    I'm not sure. I've seen people build little mechanical devices to do it, I've sat blindly poking away at it while watching TV, not sure how they feel about a clicker app, though I've seen people recommend it in the past.

    I know you were just being funny/facetious. But there is one big difference between this and Grievous. When they were trying to hype up the Grievous rework they were using canned footage that was staged by Capital Games. It was pre-release footage, and was obviously doctored for maximum hype generation.

    The video I linked for the Anakin/Ahsoka/GK rework was Ahnald using his own account, making his own footage.

    That Anakin retouch is lookin' pretty sweet.

    Hopefully they don't nerf it.

    It's Star Wars. I want to mash things with people named Skywalker.

    It's also just possible that the reworks are intentionally that powerful in preparation for whatever team pieces they're about to add soon and it just happens that people realized they could start using them already in Jedi synergy

    There is a guy in my GA this time with a 7 star Malak.

    Why do I even play this game? Why try? What's the point of even putting effort in if they're just gonna drop these pay to win people in and completely disrupt the balance of my grouping? It doesn't matter if we all have roughly the same GP. His roster is a billion times stronger than mine.

  • Options

    As a collector who has inflated his GP to help with Territory Battles, believe me, I feel that pain.

    My collection of 7 star, level 85, gear 7 characters gives me a massive pile of GP to throw into the deployments, and sometimes I can help with fringe characters in platoons (not super common though, until the rework of Platoons most of the snagging points were, you guessed it, Pay2Own characters), but really it just means that my ~4.3m GP band of misfits gets matched with people who seem to have an endless supply of G12 characters and zero 'chaff' to be found.

    Though it seems I forgot to place my defenses yesterday, so this'll be a loss against someone who bothered to place theirs. I usually end up with the 3rd tier rewards anyways, so I'm not stressing, but I can't say I'm a fan of the GA as it is currently implemented. At least they're not supposed to be counting ship GP against us if ships aren't even involved in that particular GA now, from what the app claims at least. This crew doesn't get much benefit of the doubt from me.

    I dislike the 3v3 format that they use sometimes in GA, like in this week's round.

    I always end up with all these half-baked side teams that I can't do anything with. As an example, in a full 5v5, my BH squad is zBossk, Boba, Dengar, Greedo, and Cad. But if I have to cut that down to 3v3, Cad and Greedo are left on the benches? And what the hell am I going to do with a random Cad and Greedo without tanky Bossk to keep them alive?

    This format is just bad. That's only one example. I hate having all of my teams split up.

  • Options
    mcpmcp Registered User regular
    I prefer 5v5 too.

    I like the map with 1 5v5 cell, and 1ship.

    For bounty hunters 3v3 I usually do Bossk, Jango, Boba on D and Greedo lead, 88, Cad on O.

    Works okay if you can get a quick stun in with Cad.

    Aww I really like 3v3. But also I have barely a roster so being able to split teams gives me more ability to have reasonable attacks and strong defense (at my tier it's placing 4 squads)

    The ultimate is 3v3 and ships because it's only placing 2 squads and 1 fleet and I didn't lose a squad in the last GA in that formay

    I kind of like 3v3 too but there's nothing else where it's used so you're kind stuck with trying to guess which composition works best. It'd be nice if there was something else where it was used so I can get a better sense of what works and what doesn't.

    Nice!

    After getting the Falcon (I didn't even unlock it on the first round, but on round 2 I was able to get it all the way to 7 stars), I've climbed as high as 25 in my shard. But I also got almost immediately knocked back into the 30's. I think I finished at 38 last night.

    Man, I'm so sick of farming old republic.

    I really want to switch to separatists, but I'm sure even if I switch now it won't be enough to get Padme first time around.

    They have that shit calculated out.
