I understand you wanted us to be hyped about the Tarkin/Empire pass, but when the pass just makes obsolete toons slightly less obsolete, it's tough. If you really want to create a pass that we can get excited about and feel good about spending money on, then you need to release/re-release toons that are good against the current meta. This DOES NOT necessarily imply power creep, but it's clear that the Empire pass does not counter Rex+Triple cleanse.
This is not a complaint post against the current meta, it is what it is. What I'm saying is, if you want to release toons that we get excited about, they actually should impact the game because of their competitive value. And really, to counter the current meta, a step forward at least is to release a character with a leader ability that grants allies TM for each debuff dispelled from enemies. Like Allies receive 7.5% TM per debuff enemy has cleansed. Boom. That's better than the slightly worse versions of Tarkin, Veers, and Troopers that we got. Devs, you have to actually think about what the meta is and how you can make new or re-released toons RELEVANT, not just new.
