Been playing since a couple weeks before Christmas. Had no idea about the forums or strategy, I was playing for fun and getting characters we liked from the franchise. Well now I am way in the hole and getting waaaay behind the curve in Arena and GW is a crap shoot.
I have 32 toons and it is a mixup of characters. Most are ones me and my kids liked so I got them. I didnt start going after gear and stars until a short while ago and I am getting killed in Arena and elsewhere.
My Arena rank used to be as high as the low 300's but now I keep getting knocked into the 600's or even 700's very quickly. What makes me think I should give up is that there are now a lot of teams of 7*, gear 7 or 8, level 70 toons that are still in the 500's! They may not be a full 7* but they have up to 25,000 power and are still in the 400-600 range.
My top squad has 21,000 in power... see where I am getting? All my fault, 100% just dont know if I can ever compete even grinding it out.
Current "good" toons - all level 62-64 now. (I am level 70 in game)
Sid - 6*, gear 8
Lumi - 6*, gear 7
Opress - 6*, gr7
Poggle - 5*, gr8
GS - 5*, gr8
JC - 5*, gr7
RP - 5*, gr7
Phasma, 5*, gr7 (most of the way to 6* but having GW finish issues)
QGJ, almost 5*, gr7
Dooku - 4*, gr8
Kylo 4*, gr7
DV - 4*, gr7
88 - 4*, gr7
86 - 4*, gr6
Han - 4*, gr7
Poe - 4* gr7
I do have 10M in credits and 2500-ish droids to bring a few up to 70, but what few and if I do will that really help at all? Almost all of those top 10-12 toons have level 6 abilities as well.
I am F2P obviously. So keep grinding or let my kids take over this iPad and start up a new game on my Android with a new perspective of how this game works?
