CG strikes again... Celebration??!!

Prev13456710
Again, no real celebration. Just another fake news event made up to make us feel CG loves us.

Shard drop is a joke. Not only is it 1:5. Of course it's always shards you already have. No real help, unless your a noob.

    Oh well, been running low on shard shop currency lately...
    I guess that expecting an opportunity to consistently farm Jango was too optimistic.
    Revive the stores, the game needs it.

    I haven't got Jango at 7*. Guess I'm a real noob then. Wait - both GG and GK are only at 6*. Such a nooooooob.

    :)
  • I don't know what I expected. I was really hoping for some a la the BH farm event, but this seems more on point.

    Guess I'll spend my stocked mod energy to get random shards of stuff I don't actually want, instead of being able to farm out a few extra shards of things I need.

    Thanks again CG for a mediocre event.

    The text from the message clearly implied that there would be more than the three named characters as potential drops:

    "In celebration of the 10th anniversary of Star Wars™: The Clone Wars, for a limited time, all Mod Battles Stage 9 nodes may also award bonus shards for select characters featured in the animated series, including General Grievous, General Kenobi and Jango Fett. These bonus shards will be available from 11/9 to 11/11."

    All the salt in this thread is making my blood pressure spike. This is merely a small part of the celebration, not the crowning portion of the event. Is it underwhelming? Perhaps but it is a chance at shards you might not have and it is in a section with good mod slicing stuff anyway.

    You are literally the only person to catch that (that I have seen). Once again, CG's communication is lacking. It should have been made very clear from the start.
    I sincerely doubt that I'm the only person who read it that way. If you just glanced at the text, you might have been misled, but the use of the word "including" before the list of characters has a very specific meaning.

    Its clear false advertising and if i had stocked energy, I'd be extremely annoyed. Thanks from the future for saving me from this stupidity. If you think they weren't trying to capitalize on this misleading communication, I have a bridge to sell you.

    Ask your wife or girlfriend how she'd feel if you told her you only had three partners when in reality its in excess of 20, haha.

    If you read the message it is not clearly false advertising. It could have been worded more clearly, but is no way misleading, just misunderstood.

    Telling her your top 3 meals include 2 things she makes, wouldn't be saying those are the only things you like.

    Get some statistics. If the vast majority of the voters think that they would get those 3 characters (and so did I), then IT IS FALSE ADVERTISING.
  • 1) I love slicing
    2) I have a distinct feeling its not the big hit $$$ maker they suspected

    Maybe its me and cant put my finger on it but i wonder if their data is saying not as many ppl slicing as they expected

    Dont get me wrong i think lotta ppl just farming mods for mats, selling credits, and mod farming.. maybe a 6* when they get 20 modulators...

    6* mods great but choosing between modulators and gear not really a choice many have in guild shop...

    Weekly refrsh slicing stuff, HSTR, smugglers, bonus events, i think they pushing slicing hard no one biting (i am)

    I could be wrong.... personally i think they expected modulators to be $$$ maker but so hard to get...

    Anyway i am so shard shop broke im chomping at the bit for this.... even I did not think anyone would get 10 jango shards let alone more. Shard shop FTW !!!! Im always critical of devs but ill take this win :)

    Interesting that you chastise people for reading comprehension when you struggle with it as well. I did not say you were the only one, I said you were the only one I was aware of, CLEARLY indicating it could have been more.
    I'm not chastising anyone, merely pointing out that the wording was clear, as long as you read it instead of skimming over it.
    And you'll note that I didn't say that you said I was the only one.

  • I thought we were only getting those 3....i was surprised after reading this post i missed the “including”. BUT as i said im shard shop broke

    Hopefully what this means is with all those characters the drop rate wont be bad and ill get flush in shard shop so i can get a stun gun this month lol

    Edit: Also, "select" characters implies "not all", which is also not correct, based on the screenshot provided.

    I read it as more than the three characters too. Though I had hoped they were breaking them up more (each node having specific characters, rather than a box that could have any of them).
  • You guys need to learn to read. CG’s message was just fine. Most people just skimmed it and got a different meaning, that’s on them. This message is clear, and I’m not a fan of CG’s choices lately, but I’ll defend them on this one.

    And therein lies the problem. Had it been stated with actual clarity, it would not have been misunderstood. If your customers misunderstand you, then you have not communicated properly.

    Agree it could have been worded more clearly, but when you read it and not just skim it (like I did) it is pretty clear it's not going to be just those 3.
