F2P, been playing since Dec. Mainly getting toons I like from the franchise. Never put a lot of weight into Arena, I wanted to make sure I could finish GW or get close to finishing to get credits, mats, droids, etc. so I spread myself out.
I am slowly working my way up Arena and normally finish around 225-300 lately. Some days I can crack into the high 100's briefly before being knocked back. (speaking of that, I was 209 last night and this morning I was 417!!)
Curious if anyone had ideas on my squads. Name, Star, Gear (all level 70)
Team lately: Sid (L) 6* G8, GS 6* G8, RP 6* G8, Lumi 6* G7, QGJ 5* G7
I've also run QGJ lead in that same group. I have better luck with Sid lead and his crit help with GS and RP heavy hitting.
Other toons I can use and have in Arena - Opress 6* VII, Poggle 5* VIII, Dooku 5* VIII
Tonight I just got Phasma to 6* VII and mostly to VIII. Daka is almost 5*, Kylo is halfway to 5*, both gear VII
I was thinking of working Phasma in somehow as I hate facing her on defense. I know the assist rate isnt nearly as high on offense but her TM gain on VM would help (she has maxed abilities). I normally dont hit well on Fullisade for slowing the other team down so would probably use VM first.
I know on defense Phasma and Dooku can be nightmares with assists making him go nuts. I still see Phasma leaders using Sid as a team member.
I was thinking maybe pull Lumi and going Phasma (L), Sid, GS, RP and Dooku/QGJ/Poggle Or take out RP and Lumi for two others.
Idea would be assists from Phasma, GS, QGJ. RP hits really hard so would be nice for assists. Dooku can go crazy with assists/second attacks. Poggle is tanky and has his buff. Use Phasma VM first to let RP and GS go again.
If she wont work that is fine, I can use her on my B squad in GW. I faced a FO team in GW that shredded me which is what renewed my interest in Phasma/Kylo/FOO.
