    Thank you for releasing that.

    I had thought that newer toons had a slightly higher chance to appear in Chromium Mega Packs than the toons that have been around since the start... I was actually thinking about using Chromium Mega Packs as a means to farm the newer Solo movie scoundrels and KOTOR toons ... but if the chances of all toons are the same, then, well, that's out the window.

    I have to say, the 2* character unlocks via Marquees have really made Chromiums a very unattractive gamble. Whereas older toons could net you, say, 80 shards if you pulled a full toon card (Barriss, for example), every marquee toon will net only 25 shards if you pull a full toon card. Makes the gamble far less attractive than it used to be.

    Chromium is the major driver of the point #4 above about new vs. old. We did used to have two buckets to guarantee one "new" toon and one "old" toon. However it got complicated quickly, how long would a character be new, etc. etc.

    But you're dead on, chromium has a lot more value if you're not sitting on most of the characters already.

    So, right now, before the next major update, there are still "new/old" buckets? Because you said, "we did used to have two buckets..." implying that that change has already been made. Tell me quick, as now might be the time to use Chromium Mega Packs in order to get some of the newer toons!

    I wouldn't rush to buy now - as the update is, as they say, very very very very very soon(™) .

    @CG_Carrie
    So you're saying the update is so soon that it actually occurred in the past and we haven't realized it yet?

    That's fewer verys than your previous post, so it sounds like you're backtracking - and the update is, in fact, not as soon as it was intended to be?

    Looks like we've got the makings of a scandal here...

    VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY SOON™

    Don't suppose we could get a bit of info on the cost per tier of slicing a mod, before the update itself (just curious)?

    Also, is the trademark on 'SOON', or the whole sentence? This is important to know! :smiley:

    (VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY SOON)™

    Also, umm don't really have time to do that. :)

    Your snark is the primary reason I play this game, now.

    I would be more interested in regular gear/shard drop numbers but that’s an interesting reading.

    Aye I don't understand her comment ... if the update is soon, then rushing to buy Chromium mega packs now would be a good thing, as they will be made significantly worse after the update, with the removal of the two bucket system...

    edit: particularly considering that Enfys Nest is now the most expensive and longest grind in the game, and while there are still two buckets, you have at least some chance of pulling her

    Looking forward to the usual letdown and how the game is becoming worse once again.

    Thank you for disclosing this information. It harms no one and keeps everyone educated. Could provide statistics on other RNG reliant drop rates such as gear drops (Rancor / Haat) and fear / shard drops on nodes in the future?

    Even though we all pretty much know it it would be nice if the game told you flat out

    Didn't you already kill off Acolyte with the nerf? Is someone next on the chopping block?

  • Im gonna give mad props to EA and CG for doing this. This has a direct correlation to income generation and giving players the abilities to see the odds is a honest days work. While it's unfortunate it took an act of a foreign nation to make publishers and developers fall in line and not a lack of corporate greed it is here and available immediately. Again kudos EA and CG for doing the right thing even when it goes against your interests. Thanks!
  • It is our lot in life, I suppose, master. Shall we find something to kill to cheer ourselves up?

    ****,
    You know that comment will set speculation on the forums alight again right...

    Good update, added some much needed forum fun as well, bonus, now off to service my droids, so to speak
  • Never tell me the odds.

    Han probably isn’t happy with this update. But I think he’s the only one.

    The update is downloadable in app stores right now. I'd be very surprised if it wasn't pushed in a few hours.
  • Thanks for revealing this! Will you reveal other probabilities too? Like node drops and chances to get certain shards in certain stores?
