Well I finally opened some chromium packs last night for the first time in awhile. While a knew going in I would be setting myself up for disappointment, I went forward anyway. So I opened five 8 packs and got nothing I really wanted save some assaj and dooku shards. But I did get three cad bane character drops and some shards.
Now I know this is purely speculation on my part: but I think once the scoundrel event gets closer, they will introduce a character bundle featuring cad bane and release cad to shipments somewhere. This might be the direction of the next event.
Just a thought. ; )
