    This is a joke. I even can not test new team compositions for new released chars, as the marquee mode is itself not suitable.

    These are 3 lvl1 chars, on auto. This is just a minor scratch for the wrong argumentation for the comparability of a sand box mode to the data, how much players played 5 attempts in the marquee events...

    It is even hard to get the contract activated., cause most players have the BH with g8 already to high, to not kill the enemy to fast -.-

    This marquee is for Cara not Mando so the purpose of this marquee isn’t being able to get the contract complete and test his kit

    I partially agree. This event is meant manly for Mando.
    However, they put a forced Mando lead inside. That way it is also meant to hype Mando.
    The whole purpose is just: Look, they are so awesome together, perhaps you want purchase a few shards?
    This has nothing to do with a sand box mod

    Well this is where they said they’re deriving their data from. If you can’t have fun with the toons, even in Cara’s even or properly test her with higher level comps, let alone the low ones in this, then to say sandbox or the like isn’t viable because of the interest in replaying these events is hilariously off the mark.

    I know it has nothing to do with a sandbox mode, at least to the players.
    But if that is a point from which CG is drawing it's data then it is entirely relevant.

    Somehow I feel with the developers. They have to sell the companies plans, made by the higher-ups, to the community and have to try finding valid explanations for these plans. Despite the possibility, that there are no good explanations for the changes and new plans.

    At least, I want to think this

    I go back and forth, must be hard to deal with EA over you, even if other companies that have the same limitation do it much much better, in many ways.

    But then i remember how bad their communication is with the playerbase,
    When they shutdown or 'put aside' plans for things they were working on and told us about, we find out through having to ask the right questions that have to be picked out once a month or so, hardly proactive communication.
    They have a dev tracker that has stagnated for almost the entire year and don't seem to want to acknowledge anymore.
    They create a thread about "what information officers want" to appear to want to learn more about guild leaders want to see so that the player side of the game can be improved. And then they 'forget about the iron fleet', sorry i mean they forget to seem interested in it and bring it up in the Q&A like they're 'now working on it' which doesnt mean anything
    And they 'disappear' after every content drop they do that they know will be received with overwhelming negativity

    Let's be honest, Cara or Mando doesn't matter.
    Marquee events are not for testing and are not content, it's just a way to >give< us new characters to keep the grind going.
    And it's ok.
    For testing you will have to gear them up.
  • Signs of a dying game and thanks CG for confirming it. Nothing new to make it exciting and interesting to play, only money grabbing new characters and way overpriced mod packs.

    Exactly. We even had "bugs" going on in these promotion events in the past like the super-DoT spreading with Canderous or (even though it was "only" video footage from CG and not an actually playable event, though it served the marketing purpose) the max HP bonus dmg from chewie not working against GG in the GG vs CLS footage.

    Hmmm. Interesting. We will circle back around to this idea later on. We will push for another meeting and really carry this concern up the ladder. We are excited to take more of your money that you keep paying us for this “dead game” and hope to continue doing so into the future.
  • can you tell us if new heroes are planned like:
    - The Inquisitor
    - Adi Gallia
    - Jocasta Nu
    - Even Piell
    - Etc

    Thanks
  • Hello EA if you have not thought about it would you consider making a new journey guide character. Ik you are busy with the mando update but i was thinking of making jabba the hutt character for scoundrel or bounty hunter teams he cant attack so it would be like the c3p-0 character and he can generate mass assist and maybe a new leader ability. I feel this could have potential and would make a good character for journey guide heroes . I also want to see if you guys could make a luke skywalker rebel pilot as well and see if he could join wedge and biggs in ship and cantina battles. Any feedback at all??

  • Will Hondo the pirate from clone wars eventually be making his way to the game?

    Q: Why are packs a different prices in different regions? In Europe it seems unfair to be paying a higher price I’m what is already a stronger currency
    A: CG_Tophat - It's an exchange rate thing is the simple answer. We don't control the way those play out, but everything is pegged to USD.

    This is ****, Uk = £100 but the US = 100$, if it was linked to exchange rate it would be £70

    You can easily finish Top 100 in Squad arena and Top 20 (or even Top 5) in Fleet arena without spending a dime; IMHO, spending thousands of dollars on Galactic Legends to "earn" an extra $20 USD in crystals a week is stupid.


    The sad thing is, you can't even do that anymore, because that P2W Hyperdrive bundle exists.
