  • They absolutely changed it.... Notice i 2 starred it before, and now i only have 3 qualifying toons.

    I am personally stunned they didn't communicate this, especially after their new commitment to communication.... wait.... no I'm not. If nothing else they are hopelessly consistent.
  • I auto'd all 3 tiers with no loses.. I honestly thought it was easier than usual.. my sith squad are all G11... Nihilus, DV, Dooku, EP & Maul...
    Easy shard shop currency, but I'd like to get some Rexy rewards...
  • Really disappointed with this change, the tier 3 was a fun challenge but since my palpatine is 6 star and most of my FO is still 6 star I can't even attempt.

    I don't mind increasing the difficulty, but artificially adding barriers to play feels rather disengenuous and makes it less fun since you can't try out different characters.

    Yeah I think they definitely changed it. I used my 4* nihlus for all 3 tiers last time and I could only use him for the first 2 this time and he's 5* now
  • If it’s WAI.. I don’t understand why they do this? It’s an unneeded shot in the foot. And it’s slip ups and shady moves like this that can always be depended on.
  • I did tier 2 and bonus for the 1st time (3 stars on each, no characters defeated), but on tier 2 I received 1.2 million ship building materials rather than the max of 200K!!! Anybody else have this? I got the normal 200K on Tier 1 and bonus.

    It is a possibility it was an unintended background change when making the "mythic " changes for the other assault battles.

    For sure. Total possibility. Also doesn’t really concern me as it’s been beaten for a bit. Just hoping it’s a bug.

    Possible.

    But boy, this unintended change is very obvious. If they couldnt spot this before roll out we should all be very concerned about their ability to roll out new content. One has to wonder what the process looks like to roll out new or updated content. Looking at you Sith Raid.

    The change is annoying since they forgot to announce it. But figure it this way--they'll send us all an apology prize and we'll wind up getting our stun cuffs and such all the same.

    Keep shaking the cage so they don't think they don't have to send the apology freebies :)

    It’s def by star level as well as toon level. I can see my 5 star Sion can’t do the bonus level and my 3 star executioner can’t do Tier 2. Both are level 85

    The unofficial word, is.... we have to wait until Monday for any official comments about this. It cant be changed now, so it will run its course as is.
  • This is super disappointing for newer players. I managed to scrape through all three tiers last time with only a 7* Vader, KRU, and a 6* Palp. I was really looking forward to trying it again.

    Do people with a full 7* squad even need the paltry rewards?

    It hasn't cost you much though.

  • I noticed this as well, I have a five star Nihilius and Sion at 4 Star (yes I spent the first and only ten dollars on this game..sue me) anyway, I used Nihilius the whole last time and now I couldn’t, mind you I now have a 7 Star KRU to replace him but it was a lot harder. I’m ok with it though. The event isn’t really that hard and if they make you have a star requirement i feel it gives more modivation to farm the first order and sith. It did change but I’m ok
  • I sympathise with those who are affected by this apparent change but in truth this event badly needs a rework since Palpatine's update.

    In what aspect? The rewards are ok for those still doing the clones farm, which isnt it the most difficult or pressing. So if you up the difficulty to go up against zEP then what rewards would you put in to warrant extra difficulty?
  • Trust me when I say GS11 Palp (Lead), GS 11 Vader, GS 9 KRUM, GS 11 Maul, GS 8 KR temper tantrum, all omega, will carry the last tier with no issue. In fact Maul can just about Solo it with his unlimited basic.

    OK, thanks. Never had this much of anything before the first time I've completed it(that I can remember)

    I'm not suggesting tuning difficulty to the max to cope with zEP or the full power of the Sith Triumvirate, just proposing that the rework to EP has made it too easy.

    This event originated prior to the Palpatine's rework, I'm not actually referring to the zeta ability but the constant health steal.

    In the past the event required some planning for new players, either trying to get the timing right to annihilate Yoda before he starts or by making sure Palps had a stun or Vader had force crush ready, now you just need your toons to survive and Yoda will almost kill himself.

    In regards to the 2nd point, I wouldn't be looking for any changes to rewards, if I was looking to make it harder than it historically had ever been or asking for a mythic sure but this event has become significantly easier than any of the other related events. Without trying to sound like a troll, I remember feeling a sense of accomplishment the first time I beat this event, likewise when I beat the hard and bonus tiers and it feels like this event has lost some of its spark due to it now being an auto battle.

    True, but not the point. This isn't like a Mythic or something else new that folks can't do. That's fine. This is something that people have been able to do that's been taken away from them. That's bad.

    And I already said I agreed with that. My comment was a response to the complaint that "it cost me getting the final tier done." That's true, but it's also true that the amount it cost isn't much.

    I just sincerely hope this thread doesn't disappear, and it's looked into as to maybe reload, and let us have another go at it. It's seems not everyone was givin word to have all there sith and FO ready.
    That's my two cents...

    Its unlikely they will launch it again just because of this issue.

    It does seem the requirements were changed, so really all we are waiting for (and holding pitchforks) is if this change is WAI or unintended....
  • Yeah, was so happy to get 6x 200k ship credits with the newly unlocked chimera and this stealth change just... 3 starred it all last time, but niw cant even do 2nd tier because i didnt spit out sion cash..
