Does anyone ever play the last tier? It seems the chance in getting one of the Falcons is better than a couple extra pieces of ship mats and a little bit of extra ship credits.

  • I do for the prestige. I want to finish all the capitals ASAP and I don't really use the falcons.

  • I’ve never got the falcon shard I need so just go for the mats

    Ive seen the Lando Falcon a few times in fleet, but the Rey Falcon I’ve only seen once since I’ve started this game

    @TVF with all those nice pieces of gear in there now, that’s a pretty good move

    @fseixas you can still get prestige from tough tier (just scroll down) just not as much. 5 pieces less

    I used to go highest tier but the mats have built up so much now I went back to the lower tier for the shard shop currency lol.

    I did deadly once to satisfy my need to 3* it. Now I just auto next hardest so I can get shard shop currency
  • Rey's ship was low on my list. I always ran the deadly tier for the better mats, but now I'm loaded with those now and have dropped back a tier. Last time I got shard currency, today, 10 shards that I needed :)

  • Nope, I don’t ever do the last tier. Rather have the shards.
  • I am playing the last tier till I finish leveling Chimera's abilities, after that I will go back one.

    I always play the top tier, but every time this event rolls around, I wonder if I should do the second last tier for extra shards in the shard shop.

    this, but my rey falcon is low * and ship is awful so eh
  • Everytime I go for the ship shards I only get the shards for ships I already have at 7* so I stopped wasting time and just go for the deadly tier

    For now, I'm doing the second to last tier because I'm farming both Falcons. But once that's done, the small amount of shard shop currency won't be worth it.
    Still not a he.

    I always do second-to-last even though the only ship I still need shards for is Rey's Falcon (which I think I've gotten from the event once ever since it's existed). It still gives a solid amount of ship mats, and I generally need shard shop coin more urgently.

    Counterpoint: The small bump in ship mats between the two tiers isn't worth it, especially given how much I've built up. I can always use more shard currency. I run out of ships to bother with.

    Valid decision for you. But I have some major fleet projects ahead of me, and while I have a stash of ship omegas and reinforcement mats, I know it won't go as far as I want it to.

  • Mostly I go for the 2nd tier for shard shop currency. Today I did one tier 3 and one tier 2, just because I felt like it.
  • I've unlocked Rey's Falcon only with these events.
  • I'm doing the last tier to build up my own stock pile and finish the reinforcement abilities for my Rebels. I don't care for Rey's Falcon, through farming Rey I got it to 6* which is enough.

    I do last tier purely for more ship omega, pull in enough shard shop already.
    Every day I get arena shard, gw shard, canteen shard and farming shards from hard node e.g xanadu ship with droideka farm and veers with extinction.

    Having over 4K prestige, it holds now value for me. I stopped farming it from arena ages ago. Arena currency all goes to shard shop conversion.

    That being said, I don’t go for falcon shards for shard shop conversion because the ship omega mats are still really valuable and will continue to be for quite a while.

  • Omg I didn't even know lower tiers gave shards lol. I've always been doing the highest tier without even checking the others. I just assumed the others gave the same stuff but just a lower amount. Glad I found this thread lol.

    @Disruptor92 , I could be mistaken, but I believe this is the ONLY event that works in this way where the rewards are different than the highest tier rewards (where normally, it’s a simple progression reward system where the higher tier always has more of the same stuff or adds something new, but never takes away)

    Edit: my memory instantly corrected me - Ewok AT-ST and NSs events that reward Wicket and MT shards switch to zeta rewards.

    I think there are actually even more events that give different stuff in the last tier. Like those that give omegas instead of shards or whatnot. But I just was surprised to see that the lower tiers actually give shards. I just never looked. Lesson learned lol.
  • Should 3* every tier.
