    The tease for R2 shows all his tags which includes "Galactic Republic" in addition to resistance, rebel, droid, etc

    Tag revamp?

    Will all clones and jedi get this as well?

  • He unlocks at 5* it seems. So it is either a yoda style event or a new raid/ game mode reward

  • Man he has a lot of tags. Would that mean synergy with all of them in some kind of way?

    Thats what tags are for
  • If they are adding the Republic tag to the game, I wonder if they will add that tag to the Jedi toons.

    Wonder what faction will be required to unlock him.

    Glad to see him finally released.
  • Ship event (like palp's) but using republic ships only. It works quite well, make everyone gear a dn star up those ships and their crews

    Nice another resistance. We needed that
  • @EA_Jesse there is this Iconic character from Star Wars named Luke Skywalker and he is a Jedi knight. Maybe you haven't heard of him...... r2 is great and all but what gives really? Spam countless toons we really don't want and keep the one thing that can make $$$$$$$$$ away. Sigh....... it's kinda sad the princess was right Obi wan you are the only hope.

    All the appropriate Jedi I imagine, and all the clones. The tag is no good without others with the tag and abilities that make use of it.

    Hope all the Jedi and Clone abilities are updated for Galactic Republic, or R2 will still be borderline useless.

    If he has an AOE like his PVE version does, than he will work great with a zeta Finn resistance team.

    They did announce that 2 new fan favorite toons were being added in the next 2 months. This is one of them. Jedi Luke could still be the second one

    R2 may become the new Han Solo, one of the most iconic figures in the SW universe who happens to be useless in this SW game... I fear for the arrival of Luke and fear most for his kits... I wouldn't be surprised if Jedi Luke turned out to be a squishy healer or something useless for arena...

    PS: When i say useless toon in game, of course i mean in Arena. There's where we want them to work!!
  • Putting money down that he will suck in a Droid squad.

    I bet they go dark side next. My guess is Jango.

  • My guess is empire will be required for this event
