Preview Darth Revan’s Gear on SWGOH.GG [MEGA]

Replies

  • How many of Dr Evans team are going to get reworked to include this new gear? Mwuhahaha
  • Personally, this last minute change is not affecting me at all, but its definitely targeted at the hoarders who stockpiled like crazy for this event. Don't get me wrong, it's great to save up gear and other resources for a special event, but this is too much... I mean, it's basically the same thing as if I want to buy a very expensive car, I would not eat, drink, pay bills, and w/e for a very long time just so I can get something very expensive. This is not economical, or helpful or any other you can describe it. By doing so, you leave out many other characters that you could have upgraded, plus it's not enjoyable, it's actually quite stressful. Not to mention, it's against the code of the game, to be able to upgrade your characters, to max them out, not to leave the out. Sure, prioritizing gear and resources is another thing and I get that, but it's not through stockpiling. Actually this incentive to hoard more gear and resources is affecting the Grand Arena that people don't even promote their characters... it's a shame. Anyway, they could have easily put a capacity limit on gear but people already hoarded so hence the new gear, for sure.

    Maybe I’m missing this, but so bastilla and hk rework come today too? So do I have upgrade them for the event? I have bastilla and hk at g12 and the rest at g11. Will I go into the event as is, or with the reworked characters?

    I think you missed the thread

    Probably. Are you able to help me out?

    Individual event section, or new player section. Or make a whole new thread about your question.

    I can't wait. Is anyone else as excited as I am? I've always been a huge fan, but I never thought I'd get to use one of my favorites in this game. It's a dream come true. It makes the several months planning, and saving totally worth it. I finally get to start farming the MK 7 Kryotech Shock Prod!!! So much cooler than the MK 6.

    You. I like you. We don't always see eye to eye, but this did make me smile.

    Again, why so salty? In 8 days no one will even be talking about this. 8 days!

    8 days if you buy 3 refreshes each day and spend it all on this.
    Thats 3 x 50 x 8 = 1200 crystals, PLUS
    having to wait 8 days for something that youve earned already, PLUS
    delaying your farming plans by 8 days.

    So no, its not 'just 8 days'.
    Disgusting move from CG.

    And dont have illusions, if this passes this time, you can expect same unannounced, immediate paywalls very frequently from now on, let it be for platoon, raids, new characters or whatever they please to force you to get.

    I'll tell you what. If they offer packs for this gear, I'm going to buy them so I can show support for the game I like. That way you can play for free. I've got your back bro.
    ”Guys it’s just 8 days straight of farming a node stop complaining. Just be patient”

    Also huckleberry “Screw that farm I’m going to buy it”

    Try practicing what you preach. It’ll help you understand what others are on about

    What's that? Didn't understand what you're saying.

    Looks like someone looked at your previous comments and got confused

    The very first post I made in guild chat for this game was asking if people though Revan would come to the game one day. KoToR is one of my favorite games of all time. I am so excited for the event to start today. I wish they could push the update out a little early so that I could have it installed and ready to go right at 11 am but oh well.
  • Wait - is it Friday afternoon already? 4PM is the designated time to post such moves, isn't it?

    Yeah, I got that English wasn't your first language. And when I see someone post in English as their second language, I try and figure out where they are from based on syntax, grammar, sentence structure, etc. But I couldn't figure it out based on your post, hence why I asked. :-)

    Yeah, I got that Rationality wasn't your first language. And when I see someone post in Trollish as their second language, I try and figure out what they are based on syntax, grammar, sentence structure, etc. But I could figure it out based on your post :D

    Better get your kyrotech ready!
  • Im guessing there's new game content just around the corner which either the shop or event rewards will be this new gear...so probably in April a ship raid or new TB? I mean that's usually how this works...
  • I get that you didn't want 100000000000 new Darth Revans fully geared. But springing this on us last second is a bit hard to swallow. I actually think you knew we were stock piling gear. I think you knew the extra time would lead to more stocking.

    Why didn't you let us know about the new gear requirements?

    You knew a while ago I'm guessing. I would have stock piled energy instead.

    Why didn't you let us know?

    Will we get any honest answers?

    Why didn't you tell us about this a while ago?

    Greedy= promoting addiction....then someone beats the casino (saves up gear).....casino host tells them their plane is broke offers them the best suite in the house.......gives them new gear to farm...

    Best part of all this is the PURE silence.... other than a "OH NO we blew it post from crumbs"

    I wish we had a Q&A but they and "us" would blow that too because all we would ask is stupid "when is this toon coming to the game"....."we cant' say"....."when is this toon coming to the game"....."we can't say"'
    enjoy your Q&A this year which was a cop out just like last year and nothing got answered.....

    CAN'T WAIT

    Disclaimer...not getting revan now possibly ever proof on the .gg :) anyway....I feel bad and truly hope that while their income may be doing good the players are mad...some leaving.........I really hope you change the direction of the game before it dies. The problem is california actually the unemployment benefits are good...
    Kill the game take a 2 year vacation for free...

    CG...I want to share a post from our Guild Chat that you need to see. This is from a player who rarely spends but contributes greatly. He agonized over whether he should invest in the Separatist reworks but ultimately decided to instead focus his farm and money into being prepared for Darth Revan. I can't speak for the player base at large, but I'm sure this is being echoed somewhere.

    Make this right.
    Well, I guess I’ll see how the Revan gear farm pans out tomorrow when Revan goes live. If indeed Revan requires specific, previously unavailable gear that has to be farmed, I hate to say it, but it will likely be the swan song for me guys.

    I paid $80 for the two Old Republic store packs to be ready for Revan, which, for me, is a huge monetary investment. And now it appears that you won’t even be able to progress DR without extensive gear farming or possibly having to spend more money? Yeah, this just kills any remaining fun for me in this game.

    This will be interesting to see played out.
  • A cheap move to introduce new gear ... especially a low level gear just at the moment the journey begins.

    But we will remember this.

    Constant nerfing and last minute inventions to milk some more players is not healthy for EA, CG and gives a bad taste in the mouth.

    Especially for the next game to come.
  • @CG_SBCrumb are we going to get an in game notification of the incoming patch? The DS TB just started so im trying to warn my guild mates so we dont lose any battles, but some people aren't on discord, dont read banners...

    My comments were clear. Not sure what was confusing, or what she thought I said. These kinds of comments derail my point. Sheesh.
    what an ugly thing to say... does this mean we're not friends anymore?

    It's always nice to hear from a fellow Shock Prod aficionado. The Kryotech really is top of the line. Way better than the junk Czerka Corporation makes. I'm glad CG has an eye for quality. They really knows what brings us joy. It's more arbitrary, obscure, meaningless widgets to farm.

    People go crazy and assume the worst

    Yup, many of us have more than 3 years of experience, so we do.
    Screw the hoarders who whine. No one asked you to hoard, you are just ruining your gameplay experience as well as everyone around you.

    Why does hoarding ruin the gameplay experience? Why do you think that everybody MUST HAVE the same game experience as you (I know you didn't use the words "must have", but your comment is implicitly stating that).

    See?
    Phrases like "already earned this" BEFORE THE EVENT IS EVEN OUT are not making anyone else think the person making such claims is being unreasonable? Really? How exactly have they earned it before it's even out? Just because they took a punt and spent money on something without waiting to be told what to actually spend their money on? Maybe they should have waited to find out what they needed before deciding to spend their money on other things?

    First, I think most people spent their money mainly on the required characters' shards, and it wasn't a wild guess that DR will be a hard counter to JKR, so their spend is absolutely justified.
    Second, if people pay $50-100-300 in a mobile game for one characther, then they EARNED this character, and with that much money they EARNED this character in a playable/usable form instead of getting a castrated pig without having to spend more money to get the pig's balls as well.

    I'll tell you what. If they offer packs for this gear, I'm going to buy them so I can show support for the game I like. That way you can play for free. I've got your back bro.

    Thank you Mr. Hero for single-handedly maintain the game.

Anyway, they could have easily put a capacity limit on gear but people already hoarded so hence the new gear, for sure.

    Please don't tell people how should they play the game. If somebody wanna starve to get his/her dream car, it's entirely upon them. As many has stated before, this game is about resource management, and how people does this is entirely upon them. Why does it bother you that someone wants to max those characters only who they enjoy/want to play with? I never knew that there's a "code of the game", which instructs you how to play.



    Anyway, I'm a dolphin, but I spent more than $100 to get the required characters for DR to 7*, 'coz I really dislike the current JKR meta, and wanted to change. In spite of this, I almost did rage quit the game when I first saw this new gear requirement. I now wait and see how this whole thing will play out. But I'm pretty sure I'm done spending more, unless CG decides to ease the pain of grinding the other bottleneck gears, or makes another sign of goodwill towards players.
  • The blue pieces (blue = ~ 33% drop rate) are actually purple ones aswell (purple = ~ 20% drop rate).
    This is getting better and better...

    You can get 100 shards of a toon (1/3rd of a farm to 7*) by the time you have the blue gear pieces. And then another 100+ shards for purple gear
  • At the end of the day I am glad that the new gear wasn't turn into complete money grab. It is already availabble in shipments. Full piece cost 2800, x2 gives 5600 crystals.

    Considering the reason behind new gear.. Was it necessary? I don't think so. We have a lot of unusable gear.

    But atleast.. It's in the shipments instead of store.

    Disclaimer, I got Revan without spending anything and still have crystals left for his new gear (which is in the shipments), just making fun of the outrage in the forums whenever anything happens.
  • I am really upset. You can easily kill darth revan against with jkr... what is this kit from him? I think its very uslesess cause dbastilla needed a stealth to survive the marked. Now you steal the players money. Jkr meta will be still there and malak should be fixed it?... not a great job
