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

Replies

  • Hmmm... statistics are showing that a lot of people have hoarded up significant amounts of gear in preparation for the event. They certainly had sufficient time.

    That’s OK. The Revan ex machina is working...

    I think players horde resources before evry major event, and yet here is the 1st time they pull out this move to mess with players.
  • Again, why so salty? In 8 days no one will even be talking about this. 8 days!
    what an ugly thing to say... does this mean we're not friends anymore?

    Did some miscalculation at the required energy (it's late here in germany -_-), actually it's going to be 8 days!
    ________________

    According to nickyve09 from reddit:
    "I've been tracking since March 2016 on 2 accounts.
    Shards - ~31.7%, worse than the expected 33%. IMO should be 40%
    Gold - ~16%, always has been terrible rate. IMO should be 25%-30%.
    Purple - ~21.4%, lately alot of 12-16% drop days. IMO should be 30%-35%.
    Blue - ~33%. IMO should be close to 50%. Never should it be like 15-20%."

    There are 100 blue (33% drop rate) and 100 purple (21% drop rate) gear pieces to farm for the 2 new items.

    100 / 33 * 100 = 303 sims
    303 * 10 energy = 3030 energy

    100 / 21 * 100 = 476 sims
    476 sims * 10 energy = 4760 energy

    3030 + 4760 = 7790 energy

    Normal energy per day (assuming 5 refreshs):
    240 + 3* 45 + 5* 120 = 975

    7790 energy / 975 energy/day = 7,99 --> so 8 days

    ______________________

    So after farming the new OR chars like crazy the last weeks and after hoarding gear and not gearing up any of my chars since Badstila became farmable (sitting on 825 carbs, 400 stun gun salvage, 360 stun cuffs, 400 eye balls, 200 droid callers, etc.) I won't even be able to gear up and finally play DR when the event goes live.
    Thank you CG, THANK YOU !!

    lmao really ? but what are 8 days ? they are nothing, stop complaining, you'll just have to wait a week.it's not like if the event is impossible like thrawn mythic tier 3 and you have to wait 3 months to get a dark revan.

    You have to w8 8days to gear up JKR. I don't think so
  • Drop rate? Same like stun gun (so 1% :p )?

    Whether you spend money on this game or not this is an absolutely disgusting business practice. Shame

    No it isn't. It just is something that you didn't expect that inconveniences your desire to get Darth Revan to g12 instantly. That doesn't equate to "absolutely disgusting business practice".
    Google the term "sweat shop". THEN you'll see some genuine "absolute disgusting business practice". Stopping you instantly getting a computer game character in the manner you assumed you would but instead delaying it by about a week is not in the same league.
    Have some perspective, please.
  • 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.

    Seriously? Do you expect someone to even dignify that with a response?

  • Maybe I am missing something. This limits the amount of Darth Revans going to the top of the arena G12 which means if there is game breaking mechanics then this will be limited. From a developer point of view gives them a week of live testing effectively. I think this is why they have done it. They’re not sure how amazing he will be so this limits how many people will get him....

    What I am hearing is variations on a theme:

    "CG forced me to change my strategy and up my game. Unfair!"

    While this new gear is...unfortunate...in its timing and gear level, it is attainable without paying so it is not a paywall. It is a timewall, gonna take time to farm it so probably very few Darth Revans in Arena tomorrow evening because of it.

    And time is money.
    So it's a paywall.
  • Wait a minute everyone! Aren't you forgetting the sense of 'Pride and Accomplishment' you'll be achieving once you've finally geared your D.Revan…?

    Lazy move to milk people...
    Oh you prepared and got all shards together... We make it very hard.
    Oh you got the gear to beat the event.. We got new gear for DR, so you still have to spend money, if you wanna use him day one.
    I guess we have to stop CG rigth there.

    I think some misunderstand the ire being expressed here, personally my issue isn’t that CG are trying to extract money, it’s their business afterall. It’s the last minute manner in which all this has happened. I’m in a shard chat of around 25 people who anticipated this and saved crystals for months, farmed the required characters early. 25 people who will get DR on release without spending a dime.

    Jedi Revan cost money, there was no getting away from that, and I’m thinking now they’re not making nearly enough from DR as they did from JKR. From my perspective, this act is directly aimed at punishing people who anticipated and planned based on the theory that history would repeat itself.

    So no, this for me has nothing to do with the delay, they will have had this event ready well ahead of schedule. in my mind the delay was put in place so they could dust off their ‘plan b’ option of introducing new gear to make this release worth their while (to appease EA most likely).

    Hey, prove me wrong CG plz do but as a consumer who has enjoyed and invested in your product over the years I find this low. You’ve been criticised so much over the years for lack of communication and last minute info drops. This has to be the worst. Just my opinion.

    its 24 days if you don’t do 3 daily refreshes per day

    You’re still “spending” to get to 8 days
  • @Stenun Mind to post your swgoh.gg profile? Or tell us if you'll get DR 1st time?
    If not (which I guess applies to many ppl here defending CG's disgusting move) it has a bad aftertaste that someone who's not affected by it is defending this move.

    I have no issue farming or buying the gear from shipments if need be

    I have enough crystals stockpiled. Even if I was able to g12 DR immediately I can’t run him in my arena since my SA SM are low gear and that’ll take days so I am in no rush

    Farming the gear is not an issue and they’ve introduced new gear before and that was never an issue either (other than how g12+ is distributed)

    They went about this the wrong way

    *lol* Whether I am going to get Darth Revan first time or not has absolutely nothing to do with the logic of my arguments. You just want an excuse to not have to actually address what I'm saying and instead resort to ad hominem attacks. No. I'm not going to play that game. Deal with what I'm saying, don't try and make me the focus instead of my words.

    Nah it definitely has something to do with your argument, because if you were stuck in the same scenario with the rest of us who have been spending thousands of crystals and probably hundreds of dollars you would be annoyed enough already by the delay, on top of having to spend even more thousands of crystals just to gear him past 8 and 9. Your defending CG from an outsider perspective since you arent the one being directly affected by it, which makes your points dismissive and devalue our actual complaints to this.
  • @CG_SBCrumb @CG_Carrie So.... uh, how do you guys feel this going?

    They dont need to either you will accept of and farm it or be stick with a g8 DR. The choice is yours

    100% Troll

    Added gear is all about paywall.
    Even if there is long term use.
    Simple fact , they waited too long to roll him out, and now are grasping for a new way to force spending.
    It also removes the fun aspect of saving and planning for the toon rollout.
    Which yes, does exist for many. Not that you would know or have experienced

    Previous toons have had paywall BEFORE they were unlocked.
    Or are you new here?

    You act As if it’s some crime for those who have spent to be ready in anticipation of the new toon to be mildly upset.

    They have to!
    They always mess things up and then they show up with that move.
    How long will people accept that?

    Just assume what happens with other events. Luke's journey will come, but we already have all chars. So what will they do? Introducing another gear cap or 2, so shards don't matter. If people are prepared, just make new gear for G1-G12 so nobody is prepared?

    This drives CG to a low point, by lack off creativity. So many less obvious ways to milk players and they go for the straight obvious way.

    I completely understand that CG took too long with this. Now, everyone is going to have DRevan and its just going to be a quick meta switch with JKR being replaced with DR. The timing is actually really favorable to players though, more people will get him the first time. That's fine but instead of letting the the good will happen, they change the game. Creating a completely new gear piece is ridiculous. Making folks wait to farm the new gear OR buy it is a really poor decision.

    Sorry, they don't need to what exactly? I asked how they felt this was going.
