    How is it a punch in the face to old players? Its helping new players get into the game by removing the 4 extra months they have to do it in order to unlock the ability to sim it? New players can now play the game for 2months and get it unlocked... this is a good thing, its good for the game and new potential gamers joining.

    We still have been simming all this time, we've still have had that advantage, its not like things are somehow worse for us because of this change.

    THE REAL MVP OF THE UPDATE:

    Bronze cards are now in the front of the data card store.

    Cept i already bought that stupid chromium pack. Gotta undo 2 years of scrolling to the right now.

    You realise that that is your fault, right? :p Pay attention better? xD

    Thanks for the update. Currently playing on two different accounts, one is 3 years old and the other is like a month old. Very grateful for the simming of GW changes and the bronzium packs up front.

    Thanks!

    I'll bite
    What kind of rewards do you think you deserve from CG? What should be the compensation in your opinion?

    I honestly can't tell if you're trolling or if you just genuinely don't understand that this change doesn't effect you at all...

    What about the change with zombie and isolation? It was said it was caused by the same thing that changed order of operations with sion but with that reverted it still exist. Was it intentional?
  • I am confused, I didn't find anything in Paploos portrait. I just got the notification about the snow trooper and Enfis nest, nothing there either. Am I missing something? Or did the gifts change into the portraits we already have?

    Darn... can i give you the money for the hermit yoda pack and you just give me ghe 7k GET instead of shard shop currency lol :).
  • You just made my day CG. Bronzium cards right at the begining. This is something I’ve been thinking about the whole last month and was looking for ways to let you know my thoughts on this. But this came from a clear sky and I couldn’t be happier about this change.
    There are still some QOL changes that can be made but I think that this one was a big step towards a better understanding players and their needs. Thumbs up.

    25 shards is not interesting
    hermit yoda farming take above 6 month
    I could win only 2weeks with that... no interest ...

    500 stun gunns and 100 zeta right now amirite :D
  • Totally wasted 350 crystals because I wasn’t paying attention and went straight to the end to open for the free pack...

    It’s your fault the months (years?) of muscle memory and having your thumb positioned over the buy button that would have showed you crystals instead of ally points cause you to waste money. Read better, stupid.

  • About the GW simulation update, i have to say is a punch in the face for the old players... [...]
    Like others said before, not really lol. But I have to say, some of my guildies stated how they already had accomplished around 140/150 and now kind of feel robbed of the personal triumph B) .
  • it's not so much the reduction to sim that bothers me, it's that they nerfed gw overall. all nodes are lower levels and lower gear than what they were, and it actually made it harder for me! trying to complete my bh quests, these matches are either ending early before i can complete my contract, or my squad is getting killed off by these lower squads because i'm fighting to fill the contract and not going straight for the win. also, this new grand arena taking over the tw for the rest of the month, i'm only 3 tw wins away from completing t4 of sith agent quest, and the prizes for wins they're handing out isn't getting counted towards that achievement!
  • So I literally just finished the 150 galactic war fights on Sunday and.... now I didn't need to. I think it's a good move for new players, but man I wish I got a reward for getting all the way to 150.

    @CG_SBCrumb I submitted a ticket for making the mistake of hitting the wrong data pack during the update, instead of selecting it in the new spot. Some of the people looking at the cases don’t apear to know what we are taking about . Also the chat we can use to contact them when we ask for help doesn’t have a send button .

    I can understand that feeling, but maybe it makes you feel better to know that there wasn't any additional reward at all, if I remember correctly. The reward was the simming ability itself.

    I hope it's not going the same way as happened to SWTOR. Such a great game, also EA published, but they changed so many things over the years that made quests so easy that they are no fun anymore.
  • GW to 50 now..ughhhhh took a long while to even get to 150 but I'm fine with it now my alt can have a good chance now.

    My one question, we having 2 Rebel needed Assault battles close together, both before Chewy comes around a 2nd time?

    Why not delay the 2nd one at least to be during Chewies event so we can actually use Chewy in the assault battle, lol :D

    Does anyone else find the rewaeds for galaxy war are not as good when summing as when doing each node? I guess it makes sense because they want you to spend time on the game...

  • Its just rng some days are better than others
  • I think some toons should remain a grind something that effort of time rewards, rather than putting out to tender. why kick those players of time served (money or not) in the teeth for end game characters.

    Time farmed characters to me seem to be ousted anyways with power creep new releases in the end, so for new players it shouldn't make much difference. Some times you gotta do the time..CG should look at maybe putting some specials which you can't get on mainstream pay model and add it to the grindstone.You still have the audience, and those collectors will still be at it.

    Special should be special..
    drip feed at a limited overprice to jump the time grind...will keep the coffers ticking over I'm sure

  • Hi there! First of all, I really appreciate all christmas events and also the grand arena. I am glad for compensating TW rewards, but I have one question. Is there any possibility to the TW wins would be counted in quests? Personally I run for jedi master quest and this makes the quest to take about 2 or 3 months longer. Especially now, where there are mor interesting quests in game ( i mean the rewards) it is kind of unpleasent. Or is there posibility to add one more quest slot for us who are delayed because of Grand Arena?

    Thanks a lot.

  • I only recieved one of the bundles, is there a way to contact them and let them know? I didn't log in every day during that time, but I should have recieved more than one.
