starting to jump the shark?

With each new event it seems like the toons are getting stronger and stronger. GAS is essentially a raid boss (intended by CG). How long before new toons are just breaking the game because they are too strong? Is CG going too far, or are they going in the right direction in terms of strong toons?

    Toons have been breaking the since back on the day.....yet it's still not broken....amazing how that works.

    Also, do or do not, there is no "starting to", especially when it comes to jumping the shark.

    That's how these games work. If the new toons weren't stronger, then nobody would spend any money because they could just sit on their current roster. No money = no game.
  • Remember when wiggs broke the game, and junkyard Rey, and chaze? Ahh the good ol' days.

    This thread comes around every time a new legendary toon is announced. Can't wait to see it again in a few months.

    Games typically don't require obsolete currency for the new flashy items. OOPS

    Well, I, for one, am happy we’re over the need for turn meter so we can execute multiple attacks and get back to what *REAL* gaming is all about: attack chains and sustainable DPS!

    More seriously, must be challenging to come up with a next character that addresses all the meta stuff prior to, yet leaves enough space for others

    Has anyone noticed that CG does a stealth increase of the drip rates on this thread when an event is approaching?

    Please nerf this slap in the face!

  • GAS is essentially a raid boss


    While other allies exist, GAS is literally immune to health damage. Period. Until you clear all GAS' protection, all other allies are literally immune to both health damage and protection damage. They're immune to ALL DAMAGE.

    This is patently false. They are only immune to health damage. Protection can be stripped.

    Honestly thinking of him as a raid boss helps figure out the tactics. You kill him in stages. Trash the team's protection til GS Covers, then kill the clones while he's down. Once you kill all the clones he goes into "rage" mode and you gotta be ready to bring him down Fast.

    It isn't, like when you had Malak and got paired up with someone who didn't in GA and it was an automatic win? Isn't that broken when Malak as last standing character can 1v5 without problem?

    This is simply not true.
  • Clash on Kamino releases the same day as El Camino the Breaking Bad film. Therefore SWGOH is broken.

    It’s just math, gents.
  • I concur that it is a matter of degree, I have reread the GAS zeta skills over and over and I concur this is by far the most OP I have seen in my time playing. And of course Shaak Ti will be far less valuable so I hope they do a rework on skills.

    Of course I’m only 3.4 million GP so I’ve been too busy getting all the other OP characters I don’t have yet to build up what is needed for GAS :)

    You consider a currency that is used to obtain G12 pieces as obsolete? (You rolling in enough G13's already?)

    Yes, threads like this pop up every time and the game still lives, but the problem is that the room for power creep isn't infinite and CG doesn't seem to care about how fast they chew through it. If the game was meant to last, they would push the boundaries only with extreme caution.
    Revive the stores, the game needs it.

    Why can power creep not be infinite?

    Where can you go beyond "You win the match"? And we are pretty close to that already.

  • There's a "jumping the shark" level and then there's the "Jaws 4" level...I'll leave it up to you to decide which this one is.
