The Road Ahead - 7/29/2019 [MEGA]

Replies

  • Am I the only one reading the new Road Ahead who is thinking that the Light Side GEOTB is going to have a battle with a Reek (similar to how we have the current Ackley battle in Dark Side) which will require Padme, Anakin, and GK?? Or am I reading too much into that mention of 'reeks'??

    "Benevolence" is an obvious hint that's been given (and revealed) previously.

    Now for "scavenge" and "reeks" in reference to LS Clone Wars content...🤔

    Just the Aklay battle for LS.

  • I play this game for the collecting, what I am hoping for is a mass dump of upwards of 30 new characters, dropped all over in different farm locations and or stores. Then we get to play and figure out the best ones.

    The new kit sounds good but if we have to pay crystals or if it is ball ache to farm I can see more players sacking it.

    I'm just wondering if they can truly come up with enough iconic items for each character in the game. I mean what are you going to give the Jawas? Are you going to give them all Iconic Utini's or Iconic Burned Alive?

    Road ahead - more tolls. And nothing fun.
    I hope top hat is ok he sounded deflated.

    in 4 years...this was like... did they just tell us there IS NO road ahead anymore...

    clone rework.... new OP gear that's going to make the OP teams we cannot even DAMAGE anymore stronger...
    They needed to ensure god teams can't lose protection....have to make sure it's 63 every time in GAC or something...

    This was mega mega depressing

    A way to use stocked gear sounds cool...but as always 98% of the game won't be able do do it cause we won't have MSF Red stars or something that cost 300 bucks or 22 month farm like negotiator

    You could give them a Sand Crawler, that'd make them more intimidating to battle, haha

    “Scavenge” could be Hondo Ohnaka! “Reeks” is totally the Reek:)
  • Welp if this game really isn’t going anywhere.....

    Thanks! Hopefully the Nexu makes a surprise appearance. Hardly seems like LS content though except that it appears in the LS GeoTB.
  • Wow..... pretty lame

    So the devs completely ignore numerous ideas from the community for features that would be fun and engaging and instead deliver an 'iconic items' feature which no one has ever requested and will undoubtedly be yet another paywall. This is the weakest Road Ahead to date.

    Let's remember this has been planned for months and was set in stone for a bit back.... let's not abuse tophat for trying to make the mundane and scary look like unicorns and rainbows.

    I do wonder how many Road Aheads will be carrievision till it transfers over to unknowndude/dudettevison

    Reek = the Rhino thing from geo arena (LS counterpart of Acklay)
    Scavenge = obvious jawa rework for our heroes that joined the clones on their battle against the CIS scum

    Hey @CG_TopHat , I’d like to extend some cordial and constructive feedback if you’d be so kind as to grant me a moment of your time. First and foremost, thank you for your eloquently worded Road ahead post. It’s more impactful than you know to read a well-written and carefully grammatically honed post versus a sloppy rushed message.

    Second, regarding the new grind you are adding to the game in the form of powerful iconic weapons, my major concern is the rift it will cause between longer-time players and more recently started accounts. Even the current differences among 4yr, 3yr, 2yr, and 1yr players are pronounced and palpable in GAC. The age of an account is easily estimated by completed GW battles in a player’s stats, and many friends of mine and myself are frequently matched with players with 2 years older accounts. That’s 2 more years worth of mod farming opportunity and roster depth building. Even if our character rosters were identical, the mod difference would be palpable in many cases.

    The introduction of items that can be leveled up with stored gear will instantly disproportionately favor older accounts in yet another metric. I implore you to factor in account age in GAC matchmaking, especially if you add this disproportionate effective power increase to older accounts.

    Thank you for your time.
  • I am looking forward to having CLS equip the green lightsaber and become Jedi Knight Luke, and finally equipping Darth Vader’s iconic helmet as opposed to his every day, non-dress uniform helmet. I wonder if the Tuskin will equip gaffi sticks and the skins of their victims?

    Finally, what if these items not only granted you immense character power, including potentially brand-new abilities, but if they were also enhanced using the massive quantities of accumulated unspent gear and materials that longtime players have piled up over years of collecting and playing?

    A new ability like a special or a unique that can be upgraded using gear instead of ability mats and credits and omegas

    Maybe it will require gear and omega and zetas to upgrade which they chose not to mention

    It sounds like payout mechanic of Bounty Hunters added to all characters but the item is a prerequisite of unlocking the ability rather than gear level

    You know where Savage found Maul? On a garbage planet full of scavengers. Yeah, a bit of a stretch, but one can hope...
    Revive the stores, the game needs it.

    in my opinion, this new iconic gear aspect sounds like it could be something like a new ability rather then normal gear, as in its an extra item to gear up that can help make you stronger from the get go.
    like you get 54levels for it:
    first level cost- 300 mk 1 ability material and 200 mk 2 ability material
    second-300 mk 3 arakyd droid callers
    third- 300 mk 4 arakyd droid callers
    fourth- 300 mk 4 carbanties


    and for each one you get some minor stat increases specific to their character. so in terms of Rey (scavenger) she would get more damage as you go up in levels, hermit yoda would get something like speed (very minor increase) or better healing with his basic.
    (all similar to how some characters have abilities [uniques] that increase their base stats like ashoka and jolee)
