Is there a way to remove 300K of galactic power?

Prev13
With the latest updates there will be a huge difference between paying player and free gamers.

Since I do not like this game anymore as I was liking it before, the only thing that is really challenging is the Grand Arena. But especially with the relics update, I suppose that also here, and thanks also to the bad matchmaking system, there will be a huge difference if a paying player is randomly chosen in a championship where I am playing.

For those reasons, I would like to loose 300k (I am at 3.3 millions at the moment) to go back under 2 millions and have some new challenge with those players.

Is this possible?

Removing all the mods from the characters is not enough as they do not improve the points too much.
So, is there any another way? Can I loose levels? Can I disempower my characters in some way like removing Omegas or Zetas? Or maybe destroying stars?

    I'm a little confused, is there going to be a gap or not?

    As the gap gets bigger doesnt that mean f2p and p2p will be more likely to face each other?

    Only Starkiller Base could destroy stars, but it's gone now.

    Apparently, not in Galactic Power as the matchmaking system is combining players from 3 millions to players that have 3.7/3.8 millions.

    No, you can't. You can't remove anything other than mods.

    But you're matched based on the top of your roster, not your entire roster, so there's that.

  • The only thing you can do is remove mods. No other way to lose gp

    The serious answer is no, because it apparently takes the highest GP you've ever achieved or something like that. So you can't regress to get easier matches. Sorry.

  • The only way you can lower your GP is by removing mods. You can’t remove ability mats, stars, levels, or gear.
  • Ok, so the answer is to stop improving the characters (or better to stop playing the game) for like a couple of months (maybe more for the new paying players), wait for the paying player to go even further with their power and then resume the game and see if there is a chance to have some luck with the gap that has been created???

    What?

    It takes the combined GP of the top GP toons in your roster at time of lock.

    There are paying players at all GP levels, and f2p will gain relics in those months as well. So.... good luck with that plan.

    This is not true because now I am facing a player that has Darth Revan, Darth Malak and Darth Bastila all of them gear 13 and with level 1 relic and I have none at level 13.

    I think it works by a range of total power: in my case I think is between 3 millions to 3.8 millions.

    As free gamer I have huge difficulties in having just one character to level 13, how could it be that many free gamers are going to earn relics???

    It's not the top 3 toons, it's the top 80 or something like that. Depends on Division I think. Regardless, you can believe what you want, the devs confirmed that it works like this.

    What???? In your opinion, the devs have put all the necessary items to reach gear 13 somewhere else apart from the store????

    And farming is not the answer as I want to get rid of 300k of Galactic Power because of that!

    You asked how free players could get Relics. I answered. It had nothing to do with getting rid of power.

    Yes, you can get every single thing with either currency (non-crystal kind) or by farming nodes.

    Yes that is what I was saying before: stop playing for a couple (or more) months and let the gap to be well spread, and then resume the game to play with the player that now are under 2 millions and that in about 2 to 4 months can be at my current level.

    There is no answer to your issue. F2P never get what the paying players get. This game is not unique. I have div 8 guys on my shard who have what you complain about and are dolphins at best. The shard is 9 months old.

    I hit 3 mil with relics and will be in your Div next time. Relics dont make as much dif as you think. Meta high speed teams with minimal relics will beat slower teams with high relics. The AI cant play my slightly slower R7 DR HK BSF team well enough to defend against weaker but faster players because my Malak is stuck at 6 stars currently. We all have our problems and mine is $300 more expensive than yours....

    But that is based on the top 80 algorithm they use. That GP has been shown to be very close. Since relics would be used on those top 80, it would seem that the gap you are stating will be getting wider will separate you in that matchmaking.

    5 x number of teams on off and def. Place 6 on def and you are looking at top 60 (5x12). Your div is set on total gp. Matches within div look at Top XXX gp.

    So 3.0 mil for me in Div 4 with matches set by Top 60 toon gp.

    I face mostly G12 heavy squads who have a deeper roster but I have a roster they cant beat because they lack meta teams. OP needs to do some research on how to play going forward to help close the gaps. There is some rng as well. I am top 200 in Div 4 and have only had to beat 2 dr teams.

    Your opinion might prevent YOU from getting any g13, but we were talking about what other f2p would be doing while you were taking a break from the game. Since there are plenty of f2p who have multiple g13 characters already, there is no reason they can't also get relics in the next months.

    And yes, all items needed to reach g13 are now farmable on nodes as well as in stores, and are given out in raids and TB as well.

    Someone with 3 to 3.7 mil would be matched based on their top 60 chars GP, not 80
