    You will never stop either. There will always be those to complain about what they don't have while others swing it around looking for someone else to do the measuring.

    I have all at 7*, but questionable whether my gear is high enough. I've never once gotten an event toon (Palp, Yoda, R2, Thrawn etc) first time so I'm not fussed if it takes a few months and a bit of extra grinding for him to come around again. There's plenty to work on in the meantime.
  • But what about this totally awesome Commander Luke toon that I'm going to get that you aren't? Can he gloat?

    The gloaters are tired of hearing the people not getting him basically saying "it's not fair, I should get him to even though I've not put the effort in". Im just trying to get people to understamd we are entitled to nothing we dont work for

    Im concerned about my gear as well but if i dont get him, oh well. I thought ahead and farmed to 7 star so now we just have to see how tough he is

    My favorite part of this update is that, "Farm Boy" is now officially part of Luke's name.

    So the way we can get more shards for the characters needed for Comander Luke that you promised is Bundles and Packs??? No double drops? No Shard Shop? Thank you a lot CG....you managed to disappoint me once again :)
  • I honestly don't think I deserve him I farmed Phoenix so I got thrawn I was set for a 5 star Rd got him so I'm starting to get my five star han and for star Leia up with two more empire
  • But uh, when does the event end? How long have we got?
  • When does it end?
  • But uh, when does the event end? How long have we got?
    Seriously. That's kind of a big deal....
  • Well packs are for 2 weeks, maybe that long?
  • Packs are available for 14 days... I hope the event will last 14 days as well!
  • Love it <3
  • It will come back later is all I care about I don't care about when just that at some point I can get him
  • They just forgot to info about duration?! Maybe infinite I guess?! Till the end of the month?! WHEN!?!?!?!

    This should not be surprising.
  • I love this game. But feel shafted here. I am not ftp but far from a whale. Feeling forced to spend to get a key character is a little much. Too little notice and I had really hoped for a little boost to farm these toons. Not asking to be handed them. But no way will my Old Ben be ready
  • Prepared to see Lukes show up in multiple arena squads tomorrow
  • Yeah it would stink if the packs are up for 2 weeks and the event ends before that
  • When does it end?
  • So if I only need Old Ben, I can spend 699 crystals on packs with a 25% chance to get him. And a 75% chance for shard shop currency where I can't buy Old Ben........
