strategy or illogical

why is there less and less logic in the calendar of events.

Announce R2D2 before the Palpatine event, better and better.

put CLS before R2D2, and we will have the win trifecta.

    Supposedly r2 was released on may the 4th, so it’s a bonus event. I wouldn’t know if he was but supposedly he was release on that day so it’s a double Star Wars/anniversary day.

    It's all a conspiracy against the players, nothing to see here.

    HAHAHA Kyno there was already a heated discussion on this, don't mind me trying to keep the peace :smiley:

    Plus once I found this out my stress of panic farming was laid to rest.

    the problem is that the whole strategy of my roster was set on Palpatine to win R2D2.

    they just have to put the Palpatine event at the same time as R2D2 and everyone will be happy

    A lot of people did based on the calendar, it's really just been over a month, I was one of them. Currently working on magma atm in maybe trying to get 7* r2 if not i'll be prepared if I don't 7* palp for the next time around.

    I understand the confusion of many people about it, but I invested a lot, everything was prepared even for the future.

    I only miss Palpatine 7 * for R2D2 and CLS 7 *

    I farm Veers 7 * / Tie 7 * / Vader 7 * / Tarkin 7 *
    then
    Han in stormtrooper 7 * / Luke Farmer 7 * / Old Ben 7 *

    all that for ? wait another 6 to 8 months for me to finish everything

    It wont be 6-8 months, but you should always have a backup plan. I would think this is a special run of R2, so you can expect him again at some point in whatever rotation they decide on.

    Also they have always run R2 before CLS, yes always(subject to change). Hero events are stated to run 3-4 months apart. I dont remember when the last CLS run was, but even if it was yesterday, you could expect to see R2 then CLS in 3-4 months....just guessing but it's based on actual history and slightly less speculation then the palp/R2 relationship

    that's why I'm pretty dissatisfied with the system, without palpatine 7 * I can not have R2 and CLS coming, I should wait for the next in a few months.

    all my hope was based on this character, I do not have anything to go back to another

    Yeah, that does suck, but that is what happens when you put all your eggs in one basket.

    We also dont know when CLS is coming, and as I said they have always had R2 and CLS launch in "quick succession" (subject to change) so this may have been a special run and we may see R2 again before the next CLS.

    But now you have time to plan and make a backup plan.

    You cant "plan" on things that are not scheduled. Or I guess you could call it a flaw in the plan, either way, you have the time now to make a better plan, you may want to make sure all your ducks are in a row for the future.

    As Kyno said, previously, R2 has returned along with the CLS event. I think your goal this time should be to acquire R2 (so you can start gearing him) and then make sure your empire team is ready for when he comes back with CLS. Then when you get him to 7 stars next time, he's already geared and ready to go for the CLS event.

    Cls was last week of March, it’s actually been just over a month for r2 to return, I was working on st,tfp, vader and got greedy and went teebo to start building a rancor raid team.. stupid me lol. And based on my math (50/85 on magma) I’ll just miss out by 1 day I think on r2.

    That's true, but it could be a May 4th miracle!!! :smiley:

    The close ones always hurt, like losing TW by 100 points...

    where I do not explain my story, I missed the last time 5 thumbnails to finalize my Wegde and I could not have Palpatine 7 *, then R2 and CLS, I waited for those famous 3 months for retry Palpatine 7 *, but this will not be possible for the rest of R2 is shifted and I could not have it to finish CLS
  • But it would be nice if they extended R2's event for one day so people who waited for EP can have a shot at taking R2
  • I was worried they were bringing CLS back again this month, which would have been a big problem for me. As long as there's another R2 event before the next CLS, then I don't really care anymore. :p

    If there is a second, no worries. If on the contrary there is no other, we can forget CLS

    where has it been said officially that it is a bonus event (from what people have said i'm tending to agree but still)

    You are correct, at this point, it has not been called bonus by the developers,

    However, that being said, look at what’s all going on here, may fourth, each of the cap ship seven star events are rolling out everyday, which doesn’t happen, r2 event returning a month after the last official run, and it is the one year anniversary of r2 launching in game,

    Those events alone make for a pretty compelling arguement that this is all 5/4/18 related, and not related towards any of the shadier theories floating around, as well. , not to mention that r2 is on the calendar , because it’s also a legacy event, . . And CLS, is NOT on the calendar, which is also a legacy event now, folks presuming a CLS event is happening right away are overlooking that detail.

    Now, could CLS land in June , Mebbe, but as also mentioned, the devs have stated prior that legendary event chars needed for hero’s journey chars will run right before the hero’s journey, So , even if another legacy ClS runs in June, it will be prefaced by r2

    they have also said that Hero's journeys won't ever be on the calendar but like I said with some added information I generally agree just have the nagging feeling at the back of my mind that they are gonna surprise us with CLS on Friday

    They said legacy hero’s journey will be on the calendar

    Sorry dude, this is what they said:

    "Unlike a Legendary or Mythic, when a Hero’s Journey becomes a Legacy event we will not necessarily post it to the Event Calendar at the beginning of the month. However, the intention is that Hero’s Journey events will return roughly every three to four months after they become a Legacy event and that we will give at least a week’s notice before they return to the game. When we announce the return of the Hero’s Journey event, we will post it on the Event Calendar on the forums".

    But point stands, by that cadence no CLS or JTR on the 4th.
