Is everyone else seeing at least one team of this in GW every day. Thrawn(L), GK, DT, Shore, DN. All maxed and Zeta'd? I'm seeing it every day on at least one node, sometimes two in a row. Not that I'm complaining since it's easier to wear down than a Chaze, GK Wiggs team. But is it that much of a meta that everyone is going for it?

  • I've yet to see a thrawn led team on GW (or arena, for that matters), but I've faced a few non leads

    Lots of people run the same team, that is a pretty high power rated team so it make sense it would fall on the last node where the power calculation is loaded.

    If it's not the same person, it's not really the same team, mods do make a difference.
  • My node 12 is a general kenobi, sun fac, sith trooper, royal guard & nightsister initiate team. I find it pretty funny.

    Thrawn has the highest power of any character at the moment so that might have to do with it
  • I get it as well, with few variations.

    My node 12 is always a mashup of random maxed out characters. Never any synergy whatsoever.

    That means you're getting close to breaking node 12. As I progressed in power, I noticed that I'd get legit tough squads for node 12, then someone's top 5 power characters from their roster, then a bunch of random g4 heroes. It's pretty obvious when you've got the top5 case, as a non-leader like RG or Baze will be often be lead with a bunch of good leaders in the squad, and they'll have no synergy at all.

    I hope it breaks soon. I beat it every day but it's getting progrssively harder.

    Yesterday's last six nodes consisted of two zMaul teams, an Empire team, a zQGJ team and two random high level teams.

    I thought I would have to use another squad when the Jedi rolled in, but Resistance got me through it.

    I use my top 5 heroes (by power rating) in node 10, and that seems to break 12 for me with the odd exception. But yeah, nodes 6 and 9 have gotten a lot more challenging lately. 11 was always tough, but the attrition from 6 and 9 is making it that much harder.

    Yes, for me it's exactly this person. With a long name

    P.S. Before my gw was broken every day. I didn't change any of my teams though
  • Nodes are calculated off your highest power, so it is possible you've reached a bracket where your opponents are more homogenized than lower brackets.

    We do not compose your opponent squads, all the system does is choose an existing squad relative to your power and assign it to you. The pool of squads available to you are player-created, so these will shift as the meta shifts, especially in the higher brackets.

    Can we get a power scale per node (a percentage relative to our max power), or an overall GW power percentage? For example is node six a 1:1 scale in terms of power based on your best team? Or is GW made up of twelve individual teams that, when combined, are equal to 6:1 your best team?

    Something along these lines.

    And thank you for the response!
  • I would need to have a conversation with our team about releasing specifics, first. I will talk to the appropriate people this week and see how we would like to address this request. :)

    You really don't know how much this means to us.

    I appreciate the amount of effort that went into this, but I lack the skills required to determine the validity of these results.

    In other words, I'm dumb and I'd prefer a straight answer if CGs offering ;)

    I'll say this: That post is not wrong, but it's not exact.

    @Ailouran what team do you use to deal with it? I don't find them all that easy tbh, although I haven't lost a GW (yet....)

    I quite often get them in the last 2 nodes so taking them down once is ok but twice no so easy.

    and if you think they're easy, what team don't you think is easy?

    The exact percentages don't matter a whole lot, simply because power ratings don't really tell the whole story. The main thing to remember is that nodes 6 and 9 are tough, 11 is very tough, and 12 should be a challenge. The other easy nodes gradually increase in difficulty as well, but they're mainly there so you can preload TM on as many heroes in your roster as you can, in preparation for nodes 9, 11, and 12.
    The fact that node 12 is often broken for some people is just a bonus, and you should always plan on the worst (a very tough squad) and hope for the best (a broken g4 squad).

    Thanks for the info! Also, thanks for adjusting squad power to reflect zeta'd abilities!

    Abilities are not yet taken in to account in GW. We account for them in the new power formula, but we haven't rolled that out to Galcatic War at this time.
