Which is more important... the TOON or the MODS?

Prev1
I thought this would be a fun topic to make a poll about. Kinda like a “which came first... the chicken or the egg?” type thing.

I’m curious what you all think is more important... the toon (i.e. everything exclusive to that toon... the gear level, ability levels, star level etc.) or the mods that you put on the toons (i.e. you can move around mods and make a toon have higher speed, lower speed, more potency, tenacity, health, protection, etc.) ?

With certain events (most recently, the LS version of the Malak event) mods were a huge deciding factor whether you’d unlock him or not. I’m just curious what the playerbase opinion is on this.

So... What do you guys and gals out there think? :smiley:

    Mods make the toon e.g speed...

    That depends largely on the team you are talking about. In general, I’d rather have good mods than good characters because mods transcend the metas. They will most likely always be valuable, and you can switch them from team to team.

    But there are certainly some squads and some metas where mods aren’t that vital. JKR was a perfect example. You could easily win mirror matches with inferior mods. That’s not really the case with Darth Revan.

    Hense, Toons are more important than mods.
    You’re proving the chicken and egg comment which is silly because it makes no sense. You couldn’t play the game without characters yes. You couldn’t have chickens if they weren’t born from eggs by that theory.

    Anyways eggs existed before chickens did so silly analogy. And characters also existed before the mods were in the game. So also bad example.
    Mods are important in mirror matches and in squad arena above all else.

    Abilities matter over mods and that’s just a fact. Even speed matters nothing if the ability doesn’t want it. And speed is the king of mods. Mods are just expansion room for abilities and characters. They are always secondary. Yes they are very important. But they are dependant on characters. So characters win. There is no atheism without theism. So religion wins.

    Did you just disagree with my post and then agree with it? Definitely par for the course around here.

    I never said anything about chickens and eggs as that has no relation to chars and mods. Not remotely similar.

    Mods simply enhance char, gear and ability stats.

    Of course mods are important, just not as important as characters, their gear, abilities and stars, which makes the poll silly 😝

    Actually, the chicken and the egg question is a hidden question. It is asking if you believe in Evolution or Creationism. It's not silly. It's a way to find out where someone stands without asking them directly.

    The theism atheism comment was just an example of one not existing without the other - using “a” as a prefix means the opposite of the word that follows. Pretty simple , Not a stance at all. Just a silly way of saying that mods don’t exist without the abilities of characters.

    Also I have no idea why I quoted @ZAP
    I wasn’t trying to respond to you , just the original post. I must have hit it by accident. L

    Except they aren’t analogous. Theism/atheism are opposites. Chars and mods are not opposites.

    There’s also a lot of dependencies going on.
    Mods require level 50 (players have to play the game modless until lvl 50)
    6e mods require G12
    Gear requires certain levels
    Gear 12 requires 7 stars
    Abilities require certain levels

    Darth Malak with no mods can beat a CUP with god mods so surely character is more important?

  • I would vote for "CHARACTER" or "HERO" but I just can't vote for "TOON." ;)
    The hero's kit is what makes it great, that's why the players try so hard to get the latest and greatest legendaries. Yeah mods are important too blah blah but the character is the primary concern.

    The main reason why I started playing this game was the opportunity to play with some of my favourite characters from the Star Wars universe. Mods are important to make them viable, sure. But the collecting part is still more important to me long-term than keeping up with mods which depend on luck.

    Up to a point, the character obviously matters; a triple zeta'd Darth Revan is still useless at gear 7. Once you get gear out of the way though, it's all about dem mods.

    Toons.

    Reasons.

    Edit: I would like mods a heck of a lot more if there was more flexibility in building rather than randomly waiting for better speed. As it stands, mods are gear with a **** factor of acquisition.

    Exactly. It's not called SWGOM.
    Lots of good discussion though, not quite popcorn worthy but enjoyable nevertheless.

    Mods take more effort and are harder to attain. You're also more commonly disappointed with mods as 4 speed upgrades is less likely than a single shard for any one character.

    Both I guess, and it varies depending on the toon and the role you've chosen for it. My g13 Dooku is a good example. With random mods he's a nuisance, with the right mods he's an absolute beast. However those same mods wouldn't do **** if his base kit and stats weren't good enough.

    Mods are really confusing on one hand and not confusing on the other it's just a not confusing confused concept
