It was bound to happen so I just decided to make it. So can we have double drops for the first ever run of the OT Falcon event?

    I don’t believe there will be double drops , they typically announce that with event information.
    99% No double drops. (always leave 1% for error)

    I don't expect it either, but the topic was going to come up sooner or later. They did double drops for Chewie the first time around, but did not do it for C-3PO.
  • I dont expect ANY double drops, but they would go a long way with the community...just sayin CG! Make our dreams come true!
  • So if the event is about a week away and lasts for one week (give or take) then you should be able to get a few of the bounty hunter ships to 5*. I need 95 xanadu shards. If do 2 refreshes (75 crystal) i can get 24 sims or 8 shards a day which is around 12 days right? I got boba at 7, HT at 6, IG at 14/30 and Xanadu at 0/30. So i just got to switch from HT to IG and X, not much going on darkside, so can just get the dailies on that. Im thinking a 5* falcon is worth it, especially with g12 han and g12 chewbacca
  • There's been plenty of time to farm these, so I doubt we'll see any double drops. I've been doing 24 sims a day on the ships since they've been released. HT was actually finished before the other 2 dropped. IG and Xanadu finished this week. Not often can you finish these events that require new characters a week early without spending anything. This was a nice change of pace.

    Double Drop again? Don't count on it, if you want Millenium Falcon go buy packs with $$.
  • nope, but they will add extra Slave 1 shards in the store bundle, to inflate the price and value of the purchase. they know those shards will be needed least of all... and this is a problem plaguing the whole game. every daily challenge is filled with gear we can't even use. most nodes in the game give out useless gear. the entire rewards in this game is a slap in the face.

    No. Christmas has come and gone mate.

  • As much as I want this, it's not gonna happen. We were given sufficient time to farm, which I neglected to do. So here I am...panic farming. *sigh*

    The packs are your double drops, unfortunately. If they didn't do it for Revan, Chewbacca, or c3p0, they aren't going to do it for the Falcon. Only time in recent memory that I recall them doing it for an event was Phoenix for thrawn, because they were made farmable so close ro the event en masse.
    In general, Double drops tend to be a rare, random celebration-of-something type occurence.

    Weren't there BH bonus (not double) drops a while back? Was that for the first Chewie run?
  • There were bonus drops of BH one for each level of hard node, no doble drop, just bonus, like the one of clone wars in the mod battles.
  • Five star with focused farming isn’t unreasonable I think
  • Yea 5 star is doable - that’s where I’m at.

    Some people have seen this coming since chewy first release so they’ve been grinding.

    I’m like one event behind. Revan was redic. But got chewy and threepio. Will prob get falcon 5* and revan 2nd time around and miss whatever da legendary /hj in feb.

    I concur and will go 99.99% no double drops.

    Just for the record, I made this post as a joke to get it out of the way. Anytime that we have a new legendary event people inevitably ask for bonus/double drops. Hence the "Obligatory" in the title.

    Personally, I may be able to unlock a 5 star Falcon as XB/2000 are both four stars. There is no point stressing about it unless at 5 stars it can help break the Endurance Timeout Fleet.

    I hear you. Almost, but not quite as bad as the 100 "when's Revan coming back" threads that started the day after his event.

  • I have the ships all at five stars. But just barely. I'll continue farming at the pace I am now and easily 7 star next time. I refresh each node once per day and use the 50 energy refreshes.

    I actually have a stash of crystals but won't use them for a few reasons.

    First, I think something bigger is coming.

    Second, the packs for crystals will likely get me a ton of slave 1 shards or ht shards. I have both at 7 stars so they are a waste.

    Double drops would be nice but at the very least separate the packs so you don't have to buy shards you don't need.

    OG MFalcon is a f2p gift. "Fun zone TW" is a F2P gift. Enough is enough

    No the tw change is a gift to those that have crappy rosters. I'm ftp and the banning wrecks lots of my teams because I farmed good toons.

    You're right, despite the sarcasm. Getting from 3* to 5* in this time frame with the hints that have been out there is not at all a problem.

    Agreed, I'm going to comfortably get the falcon 7* for a $10 investment in IG2000 pack.

    K then I don't understand your post.

    If you have any crystals you can then get it without any investment.

    If you can't beat 'em, join 'em

    If time has told me something, its that if there is a kit that is a counter to your squad, add that character / ship to your own squad. Interested in seeing if the kit breaks the Endurance Timeout fleet and whether endurance teams can just adapt and include **** in the starting lineup to make it even worse

    We will have to see. If it has Rebel synergy, it might make Home One and Rebels meta.

    All the falcon needs is ignore taunt. Then just plug and play :)
