    Starting today, the following Character Shards will be made available in Shipments. Going forward, you’ll also see them in more traditional farmable locations. These characters will also continue to appear as rewards in their respective recurring events.
    • Wicket

    Yeah, it was a brilliant idea to make Wicket farm-able at supposedly normal rate for a single hard node (developers statement). Just that this didn't happen (it would have meant a 5 day cadence of the special event giving Wicket shards) and thus Wicket was a 3 year project for a FTP gamer, more rare than CLS, more rare than every other toon in the game (except maybe for MT, suffering from the same problem)...
  • Major characters from the most recent movie are going to be introduced into games, and should be. If one didn't like the movie or the characters, okay, but that's not the devs' fault, and it would be wrong of them not to introduce major recent characters merely because some people didn't like the movie. There are always going to be characters introduced that aren't some peoples' favourites.

    I liked the movie despite disliking a number of things about it because it took risks and tried to be a good interesting movie not just a predictable formulaic Star Wars film, but this isn't the thread for that discussion.

    I do kind of think that Holdo as a Vice Admiral should have had a leader ability, but I can recognize that there are already multiple leaders in Resistance for a not huge group, and any leader ability that would be better than Finn or RJT would have been a waste of time because no-one would use Holdo as a leader unless given an overpoweringly better leader ability than one of them.

    Thank you so much team, I love Rose and Holdo even more and I'm so happy you didn't cave to the angry man children who have been endlessly complaining since the movie came out. Thank. You.

    And really looking forward to the Dark Side reveal next month!

    Wolly, you rock thanks for saying what I was thinking
  • I am also really ahppy about holdo and rose, rey jt needed holdo s kit and i am glad it s coming.
    Many did not like tlj... many did. Ea have to cover it as it is part of starwars.
    I am also really looking fwd to the february update and hoping for strong ds reworks / new toons to help us in dstb and to make arena a bit more balanced :)
    But in the mean time i am really looking fwd to holdo tomorrow!

    You are discussing a mouse while ignoring the elephant in the room: Where is her ship? What's an admiral without a ship??
  • Wouldn't be nice if CG created another store to rotate newer characters and ships. Then no one could really complain about where the new characters and ships are dropped. Basically make it like the shipments store both crystals and credits and rotate the characters and ships only in that store.

    What a lame update and past couple days. Killed the Revan rumors. Added the two crappiest characters of all time to the game. Now instead of Revan we are getting a rework that we should already have. Epic fail.

    Wiulh you rather have jar jar

    I would whale big time for jar jar LMBO
  • Will Holdo have a suicide attack? That’s what she did in the film so....... I’m super excited if that will indeed be in the game. Other than that maybe Rose will have “ignore slave kids but free lama dogs attack”.

    Grand Admiral Thrawn was introduced without a ship, though that came later. We don't have Vader's SSD only his fighter. We don't have Grievous' capital ship, nor getting to smaller ships Luke's, Anakin's, etc. And we don't have the Death Star as Palpatine's capital ship because to implement it would be overwhelmingly powerful, nor do we have the Imperial shuttle he arrived in because the opposite, overwhelmingly weak as a ship.

    I can't discuss here reasons specific to Holdo that make sense to me why no capital ship because [spoilers].
  • Why the Guild Store? The Cantina, Squad Arena, and Galactic War stores all DESPERATELY need new characters to farm in them. Why isn't anything being added to them? We already have things to farm in the guild store, but of course you want to continue to spread us thin. Instead of getting gear that we need to upgrade characters, we just have more characters to farm before we can do that while many of us have everything at 7* in the other 3 stores. Anything that's a year old or more should be eligible for those stores at least. Give the players a LITTLE breathing room in other areas instead of continuing to overload them while completely ignoring others that would be more practical!

    No true Star Wars fan would like Purple Lady and SJW Tico. Hyperspace Kamikaze and Casino Rampage ruined Star Wars universe and TLJ movie. Still, SJW Tico got one thing right: Companies do not care a thing about what is right or wrong, as long as they can make money, and TLJ itself proved it. Only that Disney failed in making profit, while Casino people made much.
    FYI, Star Wars instagram's post about James Earl Jones' birthday was not posted for a while even after Kelly Marie Tran's birthday post was posted. What a shameful way to treat such legendary figure. Seriously, shouldn't Darth Vader have higher priority compared to Rose Tico, considering how much DV contributed to SW Universe?

    Well, Holdo as a SWGoH character is fantastic healer. One thing Resistance lacked was heal, and now she heals the least healthy character. With RJT and R2, Holdo will a tank with frequent taunt and self heal. With Holdo and Gk, it'd get targeting RJT would be hard enough.
    Rose as a SWGoH character is a good attacker. She's not that fast, but TM gain will make up for it. Stun&Daze is tricky, and it'll be hard to deal with it w/o zzR2. Cooldown is not short, but it won't matter under zFinn lead. Bonus Potency would make her stronger in TW.
    MT, NSZ, NSS, Wicket becoming farmable is promising. It took too long without Chromium pack, and Chromium is inefficient even for the Whales. How many times MT event take place? Even with refreshes, it would take 20 more shards to get 5* MT.
    I love KRU and Silencer in Cantina in 3-F. As they were there at the same time, even one reaches 7*, it won't be long before the other one reaches 7*. I have to farm 9-A,B,D only to get KRCommandShuttle, TIEReaper, and Krennic to 7*. All of them 5* or less when the counterpart reached 7*. Extra Shard shop token is not bad, but energy could be spent on gears.

    EDIT: Wrong Quotation range fixed.

    Is there any point in farming old Toons now?

    All new Toons are designed to beat the previous best Toons.

    It's as if they don't believe old Toons can make them money anymore.
    When you're accustomed to privilege, equality feels like oppression.

    Started mid-FEB 2017, and not trying to reach the top.

    Worst character add ever for this game...
    Surprise you didn't have a move where Rose needlessly self sacrifices to keep Fin alive when he's going to save the entire resistance.... and where is Holdo's run away in space tactic till everyone is out of fuel,then hyperspace attack to destroy the other capital ships?

    Seriously though, devs... I get empowering females. I want my daughter to have good female role models. These characters are the worst in any of the Star Wars universe, male or female. Pretty much forgettable and no place in this game.

    I disagree. I like Holdo, I really don't get anyone's gripe with her. She didn't tell Poe her plan? Would you expect Tarkin to tell a hotheaded tie pilot his plan? No you'd assume that fear and rank would ensure the obeying of commands. Holdo wasnprwtty cool, I won't use rose so I'll just get to enjoy beating her on other teams. But I'm excited for Holdo and Dark side next month
  • came here to see people's theories on the whats ahead but this thread is full of people hating on Hondo and Rose. I liked them in the movie? not really, but as marquee event characters we won't be seeing them anywhere in the future. Most of my g1 characters are the marquee events ones

    I had to dig up my own account information to add to this discussion. If you don't like Rose, the solution is simple, don't farm her. Don't waste resources on her. Focus of elements and toons to do care about. As far as Holdo, I'm excited for her and the implication of a possible capital ship down the line. She has a decent kit and I'll get use out of her.

    KRU and his ship being in a lower cantina node is what I am most happy about. Thank you CG for that one, it is greatly appreciated.
  • If you really want to talk about horrible latest-movie-tie-ins I can easily think of much worse than Rosedo *cough*Bistan*cough*Pao*cough*

    ... My; what short memories we have ^^

    Yeah, but Bistan and Pao were pre-specter of Hero's journey and Thrawn that had VERY specific character requirements to unlock them. They were clearly throw-aways and have been treated as such. Now you gotta imagine any toon hated as much as Rose is GOING to be used for some event much like Phoenix. There's not really much discounting toons any more - devs action - so when they come out they all get thrown into the big debate.
    I'd love to be able to ignore rose - but if she's going to be needed to get Hux and an FO Capitol ship (for example) now you really can't, can you?

    Thank you for deciding for me whether I should like the movie or not. I guess I'm not a real fan anymore. Also people need to shut up about Disney not making money off TLJ. It's made 1.3 BILLION worldwide with a break even point of about 700 million. I'm sure Disney is just so concerned with your hatred of an objectively fine movie while they take a few hundred million bucks to the bank.

    Yeah, I got into on a quasi-friend who decided to dictate that anyone who doesn't love the Game of Thrones novels wasn't a true Fantasy fan. I mean, you can say whatever you want - but in doing so you sound like a total [redacted]. You can say you hate rose all you want, that's fine, I'm one of them - but to go make judgement calls on people who might agree with the billion-dollar-behemoth that she was a deserving character is uncalled for.

  • Seriously? What's next, Jar Jar? Does Holdo get "awful leader" ability that blunders her team? And does Rose get "Heroic Halt" that prevents Finn from scoring a finishing blow? Such stupid characters.

    Have you not seen all the laser cannons and ion cannons on the Imperial Shuttle? That thing is a power house, and it has a rear cannon as well. I would think the Emperor’s personal shuttle had even more protection and offensive weapons as well as stronger shielding.
  • Seriously, instead of a Master Luke, Pratotian Guard, or maybe a bomber ship we get the two most hated characters in the saga that already felt forced down our throats in the movie back in our faces again.

    I'm plenty excited to be getting Holdo and Rose in the game!

    ( whatever reservations I may have about the movie are about the MOVIE, and not the characters.)

    I'm looking forward to finally getting General Organa, and someday Padme Amidala and Aurra Sing, too, because the girls are awesome.
