Well, just went 3/38 farming fleet nodes.
If that's the droprate, I'll be having Y-Wing somewhere next year.
I remember the droprates were A LOT better with Ebon Hawk and Palp's Shuttle...

    But it hasn’t started yet....why are you trying to farm shards, when the shards can’t be farmed?

    EDIT: I thought that the event started on the 21st CG time....whoops.

    The drop rate is absolute pants. 3 shards from 3 refreshes personally. I love this ship, it's my favourite ship in Star Wars. I should be reaching for my wallet to get this ship starred up as fast as I possibly can. Just add it to the list of SWGOH disappointments over the last year or so

    Well, I did 3 full refreshes worth of farms as well, and got those 3 shards. Same as you.

    I just keep getting a pop up every time I switch screens stating it starts tomorrow (the 21st for me)

    And I mean every time I click on something. xnjg9tcn3876.jpg

    Actually, it's 3-second delay after I close it. It's like Whak-A-Mole trying to get to the report a bug help page.

    It did that 2 or 3 times for me, then stopped.

    I love droprate threads, i love seeing people state with absolute certainty how CG is out to get them only to watch their claims of drops being far lower than they should evaporate before their eyes if they ever actually tracked it.

    1 day of drops means nothing.
    Track the drops, show them over a period of time, encourage others to share data.
    Get excited everytime when it turns out to be 20% droprate.

    But weren't Chase drop rates based on energy spent?

    Correct. This is what they were for EP Shuttle and EH:

    I have had this pop up at least 10 times in 15 minutes

    True, forgot this.
    So not 20% but still observable at the drop rate it should be relative to the node you farm over a period of time allowing for greater accuracy.
    So just a touch wordier then "muh 20%"
  • I can already start farming today too. So far 4/80

    1,000 energy, farming 10 energy node, yielded 16 shards. Got 1/20 twice.

    Feels significantly worse than previous chases.
  • 10/80, 3 refreshes
  • Refresh 3x energy and only got 4 shards...
    I will pass this ship.

    Ok, based on that I should've had around 15 shards, since I attempted at 10 energy node 38 times. Instead I got 3, or an 8% droprate.
    I hope it's just bad RNG...
  • Shardmate.....7 out of 540. 54 10 nrg battles. Appears they do not have the 4% per nrg set per definition of what a galactic chase is. Hopefully they fix it, send everyone 150 crystals, and extend the event for a day
  • I'm a little confused. I thought this was an event? They're just dropping a new ship straight to farm?

    It's a limited event. You can get shards using fleet energy for 5 days, then it goes to the regular release cadence. 4-6 weeks to shipments. Than another 4-6 weeks till it's permanently farmable.

    I believe that was before the fleet energy changes, and this is the first GC since then

    I did 50x 10 energy and got 7 shards.
    That's 14% droprate.
    Are they serious about this?
    Last time I was able to 5* the new ship, this time I will have like 50 shards at this rate.

    In fact I did five times 10x 10 energy and got zero shards twice.
    It was 0% droprate twice effectively

    Not your imagination. Since I’m a number geek I kept track of my progress on the previous Chases.

    For the Emperor’s Shuttle, I ended up at 145 shards/194 attempts for 75% drop.
    For the Ebon Hawk, 130 shards/169 attempts for 77% drop.
    For the Hyena Bomber (Cantina, but still), 106 shards/172 attempts, for 62% drop.

    Day 1 for Y-Wing, 14 shards/60 attempts for 23% drop.

    Day 1 Comparison:
    Emp Shuttle: 22/36
    Ebon Hawk: 41/56
    Hyena: 23/45

    There is no way the drop rate is the same.

    Attempts only matter if you are doing them on nodes with the same amount of energy required. As shown above, it is a function of the required energy. So if you had a record of shards/energy spent that would give us an accurate comparison.

    The energy cost / rate is different this time for fleet energy

    Hyena Bomber was in Cantina Nodes (12 minutes per energy, one daily energy boost, 100 crystals per energy), and the previous fleet only Galactic Chase were the same
  • I have a small sample size, so this'll get disregarded straight away.
    Went 1/17 on a normal node - 10 energy per node.
    Went 6/12 on a hard node - 20 energy per node.

    368 energy. Received 6 ywing.

    1.6% chance per energy spent.

    Drop rate seems to be in the 1.5-2% chance per energy spent.....far cry from the 4% per previous galactic chases.
