If you think skill is the primary ingredient in this game, you’re wrong- at least when it comes to getting these new characters. Want threepio? You don’t even get to TRY unless you have 7 star ewoks. And if you DO happen to have them, good luck beating the last tier unless they’re all running with AT LEAST gear 10. Probably 1 chance in 100,000 that you can beat it unless you have gear 11.
Want to gear up your ewoks so you too can get this potentially “must have” new character? Stop by the store! Increase your “skill” in fighting with your ewoks by dropping a big pile of cash! That way your “skill” will match that of the rebel squad, and maybe you’ll GET A SINGLE TURN before half of your squad is wiped out! Are we selling any gear that’s actually useful? Nope. Buy crystals! It takes “skill” to put in your credit card number! Use your skill to defeat the ewok’s enemies! USE THAT UBER ELITE SKILL OF INPUTTING YOUR CREDIT CARD NUMBER!!
If your resource management is good, you would have the required ewoks, gear level, abilities and mods.
And yes, you could always compensate for the lack of this skill with another skill called Using your Credit Card.
Chirpa, Wicket, Palpo, Logray, & Elder.
All gear 10, with Elder gear 11.
