    Is this bonus shards event open for anyone yet? Any Australians here? Does it start the beginning of the 9th or the end?

    It started for me at refresh (midnight QLD time). The mod battles should turn yellow.

    Don't worry though, you're not missing much.
  • So there are 6 nodes in Mod battles. Here’s my prediction for the 6 Characters:

    1. Grievous
    2. Kenobi
    3. Jango Fett
    4. Anakin
    5. Ahsoka
    6. Rex

    Book it!

    The characters are already revealed 🙄

    Just forget the bonus drops. Don't drop your crystals in useless refreshes.

    I sure wish all my toons had god mods...

  • Oh woah I missed the angry mob that’s formed over this being a very laughable event. Luckily I’ve only played since February so I still don’t have very many at 7*. Hopefully the drop rate is decent.

    It never is.

    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.

    SO does the word "select" which means:

    (of a group of people or things) carefully chosen from a larger number as being the best or most valuable.



    "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."

    Including refers to the characters selected, not from ALL characters featured in the animated series. It's not about skimming, it's about what they said. This means that either they do not know the meaning of the word, or that they misled us intentionally. Take your pick! I already wasted 800 crystals to stock up for it... It's my fault for believing that EA is honest.
  • I did not realize the event would be this way. I was expecting to get only the 3 mentioned. CG worded it that way to trick ppl and get them excited and possibly buy the mod energy pack from the store before it runs out. I'm glad this was posted because I was gunna buy the mod energy pack tonight so I'd have plenty of energy to get as many jango fett and GG shards as I could but now I know it would've been a huge waste.

    There are characters in the series that are not in the game. Which means it is not intentionally misleading because the characters listed are of a sub set of all characters from the animated series.

    Yes it could have been worded better, but it's not intentionally leading anyone to do anything. Your choice was to spend the crystals based on believing that the set of toons available would be smaller than it is, but that is inferred from what is stated. It may not be the best situation but the set of characters could have been any number from how its worded, would you have been happy if it was one or 2 less? From the wording it could have been....it still would not have been what you wanted.

    Legit question - where were they revealed? (i.e. I still have no idea what might drop)
    In game name: Lucas Gregory - - - -"Whale blah grump poooop." - Ouchie

    In game guild: TNR Uprising
    I beat the REAL T7 Yoda (not the nerfed one) and did so before mods were there to help

  • I’d probably feel more benevolently toward CG over this if it didn’t follow on the heels of their last bonus shard communication debacle, in which they misstated the start date of the event, leading people to waste a bunch of energy. We now have a pattern of the devs posting false or misleading info about the events.

    A reasonable way to have advertised this event would have been to post something emphasizing Jango, GK, and GG a week out to build up excitement, and then, a couple of days before the launch, follow up with a post containing the full details. This is, after all, the first time that a bonus drop event has had a loot box mechanic, rather than having each character tied to a specific node. I definitely assumed, admittedly without thinking too hard about it, that the named characters were 3 of 6 that would be available, each on a separate mod slicing node. I wasn’t planning to change my farming habits to take advantage of this, but I can understand how somebody who was planning to take advantage would be disappointed in the communication around this event.

    Frankly, I think people would be a lot happier with no advance communication at all of bonus drops than with communication that only serves to mislead them into wasting resources that would be better spent elsewhere.
    I demand Grand Arena Elo ratings.

  • Question: If a player sims multiple runs which awards a box, do the reward boxes stack or is it only one award total. Does that make sense?

    If I sim a single node and win a box, does it open the bonzium roulette wheel to tell me my prize or is the prize calculated as soon and the rewards portion opens. If I sim multiple times in a single turn do all prize boxes won open immediately or individually the roulette wheel opens like when spending multiple ally points.

    bonus shards on nodes ALWAYS suck, even if it were just those 3 characters.

    They helped me get Bossk to 7* which helped me get Chewbacca to 7* which helped me continue to do well in arena without either Traya or Revan...but ok.

    I found a dollar the other day, which helped me buy a car which helped me getting a job that requires me to drive around alot.
    Getting 1 dollar for my birthday still wouldn't get me excited, just like bonus drops on nodes. It's cool and all because it's free/extra, but that's about it.
    imo these type of aniversery events are successfull if players are willing to spend a bit more (crystals, energy, money or w/e it is that is extra rewarding during the event) to get some more. With this one there's very little incentive to spend some more to get some more, which has generally been the case with bonus drop on nodes events in my experience.
    i'm happy for you those bonus bossk shards helped you out though.

    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."

    That doesn't make it better.

    Of course it's always shards you already have. No real help, unless your a noob.

    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.

    :)

    if you had read this post clearly, the point is the chances of getting one of those three shards is very slim. You most likely get shards for toons you already are done with.

    I’m guessing we get a bonus Zeta tomorrow for the 3rd anniversary of the game. Probably some gear too.
    The stun gun will be from a selected pool of stun guns including the much needed Mk. 5 Stun Gun!

    So I bought the Mod energy pack just to see what I would get from 900 energy.

    As you can see it's nothing special. In this picture Poggle and Clone Sergeant are 1 shard each.
    The Imperial Tie Fighter is obviosly not from those bonus drops. (Edit: Royal Guard as well)
    What you can't see but I also got is 5 shards of Geo Soldier, 2 of Plo Koon, 1 of Kit Fisto and 1 of Jango Fett.
  • Prettu disappointed to see what it turned out to be... I was also expecting something like the bounty hunters extra shards we had a couple of months ago...
  • I got a nute gunray, dooku and poggle shard from a 2refreshes. Gonna be one heck of a celebration guys!
  • As predicted the drop rate is ridiculously terrible. Yay, 'celebration'!

    To be fair, they never specified who the celebration was for.
