I'm not sure how I feel about the announcement of the Revan event. I was certain it wouldn't be a hero's journey type. My idea of a hero's joruney would be taking an existing character and take them on a journey via various story driven missions to turn them into a hero. As we have seen with Luke and Rey. But, alas, I was wrong. I was hoping it would be more of a legendary event as we just had with Chewbacca. But why would Revan be just a legendary event? He is much bigger of a character isn't he? He is.
So we can say this is kind of a big event for this game. This isn't a character we can unlock at half strength. We can only unlock them at full strength. As we have seen with Luke and Rey, even long after their release, they are still very viable in many aspects of the game. So I would assume Revan will also be as viable.
So why make such a big event such a secret and a surprise? Why not give us a chance to actually prepare for such a big event without having to speculate and guess what is coming or when it is coming.
Who is the real target audience for this event? The people who spent the most money? The people who speculated correctly? I already have Bastila at 7 star, but I still need over 1000 shards to get Revan. I know it is impossible this time around. I'm okay with not getting him this time around. Just as I was okay with not getting Luke and Rey the first time around. I know the event will come back, but what bothers me is the unknowing of when it will come back.
What is the point of keeping everything a secret until the last moment? What kind of game are we actually playing here? Galaxies of heroes almost feels a little like D&D. Except with a game master who doesn't know how to properly run a game. Let's throw our players into an impossible situation and see who is lucky enough (or rich enough) to win the game.
