Returning player shard change

Does anyone know if there is a way to be put into a shard with similar opponents, I stopped playing for about a year and now the top ranks in my shard and all Uber powerful teams that my level 71 gear 8 ish team will never be able to compete with. Anyway to reset the shard?

    No. Unfortunately you are stuck on the same shard that you are initially placed in.

    People here may be able to offer suggestions on steps forward if you have a swgoh.gg account you are willing to share.
    You might be better off restarting depending on how much progress you had made before your break.

    I took 10 months and had to face the same thing. You won’t be moved to another shard so your best way to deal with it is build up a meta team and start climbing. Took me several months to get back into top 100 and a year later I’m still not back into getting top 5.

    All depends on your roster whether you should start over or continue on building your current roster, for me it was a no brainer to continue on with what I had.

    Your shardmates have not only built up meta teams, they’ve also had a year to improve their mods, which is huge.

    Ok yeah, your roster is not well developed and you may consider starting over.

    The one thing you have going for you though is your OR toons are on their way to getting you JKR, which could probably get you into at least high enough in arena to start earning crystals.

    If you’re willing to spend 100 bucks, you could buy the hyperdrive bundle which will propel you much further, whether you start a new account or keep this one.

    I still think mods is a major factor you also need to consider. Even your shard mates in the 500-1000 range are gonna be way ahead of you on that.

  • That's way early game. Just restart.
  • Restarting seems too depressing. It represents probably 3 month setback. Especially since I had started back in 2017, built an account with 2M gp, then lost that account, and had to start again, I think I’ll just keep on keeping on, arena isn’t the only part of the game
  • When you guys say I’ll be behind on mods is secondary speed still king? Is that what I’m looking for when I get mods I throw all the green ones away and only level up others if the have secondary speed. Is that still what I should be doing?

    I recommend looking up "The Playbook" on Youtube if you have time. He made a really in-depth guide on mods. Just search the channel name and go to his playlists.

    Thanks
  • There's also this reality that restarting won't change your predicament too much. Unless you spend you won't be arena top because the game changed drastically. New metas are tied with many other prereqs which will also take farming and huge amounts of gear which new spenders can burn through. So you'll manage to go towards top 200, 100 or at best 50 but top 20 where the difference matters will be under lockdown.

    Speed is still king btw, but there's more to it. The above suggested videos are solid.

    Starting color doesn't matter much. Even a Grey mod can turn out to be great in the end.

    Yes, speed is still king in arena, but with the introduction of relics those would be more important. A faster team can have trouble against a slower team with higher relic levels.
