Rey and Ren - Is there a point to playing this game anymore?

Prev1345
I'm not quitting the game, but I am serious that their kits are so over the top it is depressing. I mean, assuming I every get one of these characters, it will take a year or two. In the meantime, anyone who get's these two essentially automatically win any arena, GAC, raid, etc. I'm really unhappy and annoyed about these seriously OP characters. :(:( It does make me ask, why keep playing, and why spend any more money on this game. :(

  • Spend so you can have one yourself
  • Personally I'm a star wars junkie and I gotta get my fix......so yeah I'll be sticking around. That and I'm fairly confident in my ability to get one of these new toons and I want to see what they're capable of.

    It makes me ask - did you not expect this?

    This is the same question people asked when:

    Jedi Knight Revan was released
    Darth Revan was released
    Darth Malak was released
    General Skywalker was released

    Yet here we are

    CG has done a good job of forming the meta, I'm sure it'll be fine. GAS was overwhelmingly powerful during kit reveal, and he's still a strong toon, but he has several counters (DR, Padme, Rebels etc) and not as bad as we initially thought

    Players will find a way to survive

    I remember it all the way back to when Chase was released.
  • I will probably get 1 GL but what is the point to have both ?
    I believe with only 1 it will be enough to climb in arena

    If they are not OP, why would anyone relic a dozen toons just to get 1?

    Because I like Resistance :)

    Remember when they said they wanted a few teams to form a "rock, paper, scissors" meta?

    Pepperidge Farms remembers.

    And they had that for like 3 months. They never stated their intention was to keep the meta that way indefinitely. The worst part is, no matter what they release one of these 2 characters will be part of your squad arena until the next GL release
  • @NicWester

    I do too and still did not farm Rose till GL Rey was announced! LOL
  • R7 GAS doesnt have a counter, theres even videoams where underleveled and 5* gass can wipe out relic squads with defense mods
  • @Anarkid Offense is always easier than defence, though.

    They were announced three months ago. If you started hoarding then, you can't be far away from getting your first one.

    Lol

    Try padme, malak and even cls xD

    I never felt as far as I am currently doing during this boring cheesy meta

    I hope GL will be more reliable

    Did you know there's more in the game than arena?

    A whole ocean of new content is waiting for you!

  • Will the AI GLs target Fives or another 501st? If 5s sacrifices, GS is tough to lose with.

    And, honestly, arena has always been a whale's game

    Anecdotal.

    Nah, objective in the reasoning why I said it. Gaining the new meta on day 1 gives whales the highest probability advantage of being number one in arena the most, hence why arena tends to be one of the most whale friendly modes in the game.

    I never said whales don't have the advantage. How much of an advantage is shard dependent, and also the number of whales is highly variable. Therefore, anecdotal.

    The thing is: Requirements are out of this world. It will take seriously about 2 years to get. Of course over those 2 years meta will change at least twice. So is there a point in playing? I have all the meta teams except gas, I will have all things needed soon. But this will take about half a year and I already had many of these characters. I have only 7 characters with relic in total. This gl alone requires 12 characters on relics. And I don't have many of them geared or even unlocked.
