Content update 8/9 [Mega]

Replies

  • Why start already :( It hasn't even been close enough time to farm Old-Ben which is missing for like half the community (at least that's what it looked like from the reddit outrage). Why not give us a week or two to at least have a chance to compete without spending money

    Event is probably 13 days...including the initial announcement..it will be 20 days...that's more than enough time to farm OB from scratch.

    Um, your last sentence is the very answer you seek

    REFRESHING CHANGE TO OLD DIFFICULTIES
    Hard Node attempts have been Increased! For a limited time, Hard Nodes have had their attempts increased from 3 to 5. This change applies to both Light Side & Dark Side Nodes.

    THIS. HOLY MOTHER OF GOD THANK YOU

    5x of zero is still zero. I would much rather then change to 2 tries max and have guaranteed drops.

    Hard node farming is a joke. I have been farming shoretrooper since he became available to farm still at 54/100 I had been buying him in shipment till then. Same with DN, I am averaging less than 1/2 shard per day.

  • It is actually really good especially for f2p. Energy is the easiest and fastest commodity in the game...allowing a player two extra chances to farm up a character like DN or Baze is great.
  • Nope, this is the only time you can get him. He is an ultra-mega-super rare event, so he won't appear ever again. Just like Palpatine, Yoda, Thrawn and R2.
  • I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't tell us, to increase the pressure to buy packs. I'd rather go without than pander to that.

    I bought the packs already.

    It doesn't say "extremely rare" or "legendary event" so I'm wondering if it is a recurring event. I probably still won't have them in time after purchasing the packs but don't want to be tied down farming Leia and St. Han anymore anyway. I have Leia 48/100 and St. Han 64/65.
  • Give us a way to farm her besides having to get first every day, or make the event last all month!
  • I was one of the more vocal complainers about what happened with r2 and the CLS but I am willing to admit that I was wrong. Devs did this right. If the event goes for 13 days...people would have 20 days to farm the various characters...for a meta character like CLS, that is extremely generous.

    The increase from 3 hard node tries to 5 is also great, especially for f2p.

    Good job Devs.

  • Why not give us a week or two to at least have a chance to compete without spending money

    You just had your week or two.
  • They won't say. They'll hint that he may be coming back for a 2 hour flash type event every day for the next year so that everyone panics and buys their overpriced bundles.

    When did they do that?

    I agree, but imagine if it was 5 trys instead of 3 this whole time. Your DN would be 7* for a time now. There'll be nothng guaranteed, so at least I'll be able to try more

  • When is ahsoka fulcrum coming to shard shop?
  • 5 x 0 = Zero. Well at least u have more chance now to get (more?) shard. Let's do the math:

    - 5 x 20 energy (hard node/ex:shore) = 100 energy.
    - 1x refill = 120 energy.

    Well.. i think we all know where this will go

    There is and we will find out when the event launches.

    There is a chance that it will run for the same amount of time as the packs.

    It will probably be a modified flash style event, but will appear randomly for a duration of anywhere between 7 and 15 minutes every 1-23 hours over the next 13 days. Probably with a cumulative active event duration of 2 hours.

    The way it's worded sounds like Ahsoka Fulcrum and Nihilus are getting a new node that they will share, with a 50% chance of getting each one at each refresh. That's how I read it, anyway.

    Yeah this thought crossed my mind, but I'm still lost as to why they were mentioned, They've BEEN in shipments, like, are the going to "Re-Add" them to Shipments? It's just...strange, almost like they meant to say a node/particular shop but left a word out
