  • Any plans to change GAC match making ? Ie, winners from previous rounds face winners, losers face losers etc, to get a better reflection of who are the genuine kyber champions ?

    Hey, as a NS lover I must ask, will there be any more Nightsisters added to the game?
    There's a really cool scene in te show where Ventress pairs up with 2 NS and attempts to assassinate dooku
    Will the new ability of Talzin be related to voodoo ?
    Talzin almost killed dooku from halfway across the Galaxy, that's a really powerful ability which she currently lacks
  • Beta program?
    Sandbox mode?
    Mythic raids?
    What's so hard to add new tiers to daily challenges?

    Hey Devs,

    Is Darth Sidious ever gonna get the Separatist tag like Jango?

    Imo, you don't even need to change his kit :smiley:

    Best,

    Assassin9818

    We were just chatting about this and I don't think he's actually a Separatist like Jango. Jango was hired and was working for the Separatists. Sidious is pulling their strings and never direct allies with them. He then turns on the Separatists when its convenient, not exactly a good friend. I'd have to check with our lore experts but that's our initial read

    What about maul?

    His Sidious' boy though right? So same logic I'd think

    So Sidious never worked with Dooku? Sidious never intereacted with Nute Gunray and directed him to do certain things?. So funny how you won't give Sidious the Separatist tag even though he directs all of their moves for years, but Ahsoka gets a Nightsister tie in with her leadership ability for something that happened in 1 Clone Wars episode.
  • Regarding this answer from TopHat:

    "Regarding some of the player specific notes about Malak and how he and Skywalker should be 7*, we've heard these notes but it's not aligned with what we think those characters are: for this state of the game, the ultimate collection achievements."

    And they are, at this point, the ultimate collection achievements. Emphasis on "collection," especially vis-a-vis Skywalker. No event has ever required the number of characters and power levels to acquire the character, and yet, for most players who unlocked him, he is quite literally a "collection achievement" with no real functional use. With the introduction of G13 and relics, a 5 star character is simply no longer viable, certainly not in the meta. Instead, most players who unlocked him will not have him at 7 stars until a few months from now. At which point, surely, there will be a repeat of the General Skywalker event. What is the point/incentive for players to be among the first to unlock a character that is not usable? The character who has been the most difficult to unlock to date? Why bother even trying to be the "tip of the spear"?

    Sure, then turns around a moment later to have them decapitated! They seem like pawns, more than allies. I honest could go either way but that was my initial read
  • Will Mace Windu ever get his rework?
  • 2 Q&A’s ago you said the bees were about to leave the nest for our next puzzle yet it is not here when are we finally getting one ?

    With your focus on geo territory battles, and currency choking Malak and general Skywalker. Why are you making it impossible for new players to get characters like Wampa, Probe Droid, and hYoda? Have you considered how it hurts newer accounts to not have the ability to utilize these characters without sacrificing g13 and/or your meta breaking super characters? Do you care at all?
  • A little late to the party, but would y’all consider hiring developers that would have to work remotely?
  • Why did you not announce ahead of time that epic confrontation characters would require GET tokens?

    There's currently a discussion in the studio about what it would mean for us to be in an open discord and how we would manage that interaction

    You should join the secret whale server

    Or the non secret one that Ultra is just jealous he can't join.

    Could be an interesting feature for a rework though..."Sacrifice Target Ally" sidious gets ridiculous boost to offense or something.

    As long as that target ally is separatist

    He directed them for YEARS. not moments. give me a break. between ep 1 and 2 is 10 years, Ep 2 and ep 3 is 3 years. So minimum Sidious was directing Separatist actions for 13 years. that's a lot of moments. We should make all the clone troopers storm troopers because they were only clone troopers for moments before turning with order 66....
  • Can we get a commitment, similar to the Character Release Cadence, that applies to currency like Guild Event Tokens and Grand Arena Currency?

    At this point we feel like none of it can ever be spent for fear of a major character requiring a large amount of currency.
  • Please explain what is going on with the Malak fiasco
  • There are a handful of factions/characters who are very under developed and have been for a while now - are we going to get to see factions like Tuskens getting a rework to make them effective like Bugs or Clones have recently, or Nightsisters back in the day?
  • Also please explain what is being done to alleviate the gear crunch issue
  • For QoL, is it possible to enable a mod "snapshot" of the entire roster? A full roster is differently modded (for TW/GA) than individual teams. A snapshot would be a great way to ensure a preset mod layout before entering player lock.

    What about avelliating the Gear crunch and the draught of content for end game players via quests/feats ? Beating the last tier of Thrawn without Hera could be quite the challenge, as conquering cls again, this time without mods.
