    i am no whale but am an endgame player, and i am at 11/13 for Gley with BB8 and Scav at R3/4, just farming the rest of the relic pieces. I have spent less than $100 on Resistance. it was totally possible to prepare for this while minimally spending though admittedly hoarding helped lol

    Let's agree to not call her Gley. Terrible nickname.

    Disagree.

    Being endgame is a different story. If you've run out of decent toons to G12, etc then yes it makes sense you'd have a quicker path to either GL. Mid-game or non-spender? Unless you have a serious HO for First Order or Resistance chances are you're many months away.

    That’s okay. So is the new Raid

    It doesn't stand for anything so is not all caps.

    And it's Glylo.

    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. :(

    I feel you, I feel almost exactly the same way however, I’ve decided I’ll just have my fun in collecting what I can and trying new teams, working my way along towards GL someday..


    My final straw will be this promised new content... when we find out it’s all GL tuned, I’m done, I will not chase a carrot so far out of touch with what’s reasonable...

    GL tuned content is not just out of reach, it’s flying away on a magic spaceship moving faster than the speed of light...

    Or Lando. He kept doing stronger and stronger aoe attacks! Or Leia, but I think she was p2p only.

    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

    Are you someone who was asked to try every garbage every day to talk nicely with any kind of stupid relativity?
    I have no idea what that sentence means

    Reported for profanity. Keep it clean, TVF. H E double hockey sticks is a bad word, dude.

    R7 GAS doesnt have a counter, theres even videoams where underleveled and 5* gass can wipe out relic squads with defense mods

    Lol. A friend of mine climbed in arena against full relic GAS/ 501st, with g12 Bastila lead, r2 JKRevan, g12, hyoda, g9 Wat and r7 GAS.
  • Jeez, I'm starting to hate the GL release. I'm just mid-game! Some months before they JKR and we had to chase after him. Then they invented DR and Malak. Not to mention c3PO. And lately that had Shaak Ti and the 501st and General Skywalker. Don't forget Ki-Adi-Mundi. Seriously, there's absolutely no way to catch up unless you whale!
  • I guess we F2P players will just have to satisfy ourselves by farming toons we like.
  • Look, I don't disagree that getting a GL toon is a LOT of work, but TWO YEARS?

    I can't imagine I'm less than 4 months away from Heroic Poe to complete the set, since they haven't even made him farmable yet and there's a limit to how much of my crystals I can spend on HPoe shards. I mean, I could spend a lot on those shards, but then I wouldn't be able to use those crystals to gear up the rest of resistance, and I only have 1 relic 13 Resistance toon right now.

    But on the plus side, you can unlock GRey without HPoe (albeit without the ultimate ability). So assuming GRey is released by then, I think I should be able to open her up in 4 months, maybe less, depending on HFinn farming. I have about 6 resistance at g12 but I still have 4 + HPoe and HFInn in the purple. Right now I'm getting about 2 toons every 3-4 weeks to g13 from g12. So... yeah. 3 months will get me half my relic toons, another 3 months will get the rest. A new raid or some good luck with complete gear drops and maybe I'll get those toons relic'd sooner.

    Minimum 4 months, projected max = 6 months. And I'm free to play, though I am endgame and have been playing for 4 years and have all my epic confrontations and Hero's Journeys etc. complete. If you're able to focus on just this and you start from nowhere ready, maybe 9 months, but not more than that. By the time I'm done, I will have put in about 7-8 (can't remember when exactly I switched over to focussing on Resistance, but it wasn't that long ago).

    The only way that it would take two years is if you're counting from before you get RJT and/or you're not focussing exclusively on a single GL faction. The choice is easy for me, since I don't have those other major events to prepare for, but even if I didn't have GAS and Malak and whatever, I could still choose to focus on Resistance. My time to make all this happen hasn't really changed much since the day that they released relics.

    I get that there are opportunity costs (when you're farming one thing, you're not farming another) but two years isn't fair. If it takes you that long, you weren't really working on it the whole time.

    Lando and Leia were the p2pest things possible. Leia triple tap, so op! Then Rex right afterwards. If you want high spots in Rancy you gotta buy Rex.

    I understood the unlock procedure like you, but everyone disagrees that's what CG meant. You need all prereqs to unlock the event.
  • Nothing new here. Things have been this way since the first newly released meta

    Absolutely! Oh, except the massive increase in requirements/time to get them. 🤤

    The GL Reqs are the full gambit of unlocking “panics”. High gear + Highest Relics + Shard with Node refreshing.

    100% anecdotally untrue

    I’m not even close to getting them, but the majority of those I compete with in arena are.

    Arena will always be the domain of the whales. I was referring to GAC.

    You mean there are other game modes in SWGOH? It isn't all about squad arena?

    You're right, I forgot. Anything that doesn't take #1 in squad arena is USELESS TRASH.

    Carry on.

    Of course there are other game modes, captain obvious twins.

    Being competitive enough to get crystals as an FTP allows you to be competitive in all other modes of the game.

    I didn't k own Jarvind and Lio were twins. That's so cool, like identical? Who was born first? I have so many questions.

    who would have guess the answer to the chicken or the egg would be yes?

    Well truthfully chicken and egg question is just silly. It's the egg, dinosaurs had eggs. Of course if you dont believe in the dinosaurs the discussion can be reopened.

    I'm actually surprised nobody is talking about the possible repercussions these 2 toons may bring to the game. Hard to say right now but with them being so hard to obtain I wonder how many people will just quit playing entirely.
    Every new big ticket toon has been hard to obtain. I’m sure the new raid rewards will make g13 easier

    The new raid will also make everyone quit and kill the game.

    Hmm, "new raid" "kill". Death star raid from confirmed CG shill @TVF
