It's been about a month since the events changed and they got rid of the 'keycards' and added these events. I personally have never done either. Not once. They just don't seem worth my time or energy.

    If you have "excess energy", you're doing something wrong.
    Quit 7/14/16. Best of luck to all of you.

    They are utterly 100% worthless. I used them one time in the last 5 minutes of the first Yoda Event to level my last jedi to 5 stars - other then that, they are a huge waste of resources.
  • Did the gold one two times pre-nerf only to get some extra credits to pay for a 7* both times.

    Post nerf, I did each phase one time each to get the gems.

    If you are doing it post-nerf for the credits or for the droves, you are definitely in need of help.

    I did the key card ones which actually served a purpose this is just high way robbery when I read the description I basically wanted to throw my phone a swell distance then realized why bother.
  • I've never done those pointless events
    I hope the devs look at the actual numbers and see they have to make a change.
  • I did them a few times before I got wise
    The credits or training droids you get for doing it are utter garbage....

    Its not much of an improvement from spending your 20 energy on LS/DS missions.... Plus you can get shards and mats and Sim tickets that way.

    Even if they doubled or tripled the gain, I still wouldn't waste any energy on that crap...
    Rewards are way way way too little.

    Did them once each for the crystals and to see who you get to battle.

    I wasn't around for keycard events, but I soon realized I didn't unlock a new game mode. I unlocked a credit scam.

    They are designed the way they are for a reason.
    They have never responded to any of the hundreds of threads/polls complaining about them... for a reason.
    We all know what that reason is.

    Yeah I understand, but if no one uses it, then they aren't makIng money off it anyways and it's still a failure. Hopefully they scrap it all together and just put in something entirely different that has some incentive.
    I'd hate to be the game designer that thought it up. @Qeltar

    These events were made the way they are so that people would look at the credit packs in the store, and the training droids for sale in shipments, and say "hey, that's a pretty good deal!"
    That's the only reason they are the way they are. They aren't there for smart players to use. They are there to sucker newbies who are misled by the "possible rewards" (which rarely happen) and to encourage credit sales for crystals. That's it.

    I did the old ones on occasion, the new ones are worse than useless.

    I think it may be the worst thing the developers have done. It is an insult to players and it is universally hated. I've spent a lot of money on this game I feel this is insultingly bad.

    This is the best description I've heard of it so far.

    I think the only good thing about the new credit/training droids battles is that you might get to see these two: PcNQRfB.jpg

    Same for the gems and added bonus of first time completing.

    I spammed the keycards pretty hard because I had to fund the star promotions, and that's the only thing that's kept my squad viable post-credit nerf. Nice of them to give us zero warning that the events would be nerfed to 15% of their already paltry payout. I would've diverted all energy to the cards had I known the new event was a scam and not an improvement. That was really, really poor form by the devs.

    20 energy for 6,000 credits might be the biggest ripoff going (then again, 595 Crystals for what, 60k credits straight up sucks too) ... i don't think it paid out more than 6k more than one time out of probably two dozen tries...

    Both are in DS missions I believe. I know Han is.

    Hmm farm character shards or spend energy on extremely low sum of credits?

    They weren't horrible before the nerf they are now though.

    I think this poll and its results are hilarious and EA should too.
