Galactic challenges event [MERGE]

    When is it coming? Yep. What will it be? Uh huh. Can I say more? I think someone just called my name...Gotta run!

    I just want to say that even if I'm disappointed in an answer, or even if you literally are not allowed to answer, having someone pop up in the forums to actually provide the non-answer is VASTLY better than having no one say anything at all.

    This way we know that we've been heard and we don't **feel** like we are being ignored. This is what I think of as basic customer service, and it's been missing for a long time.

    So I want to thank you for moving things in the right direction, and for being able to do so with a wink and a smile even when you know that some people will be upset at the lack of an answer.

    Thanks for being here, thanks for reading the forums & making the effort to participate. I know that Carrie got treated badly at times, & I want you to know that even if (more likely when) I hate on one of your answers, I will also be one of the people try to keep folks from hating on you.

    I'm glad you're here.

    I really appreciate it. Indeed, there will be times I can't touch a subject or give the answer everyone wants (myself included). It just comes with the turf. But, I'll do my best.

    Not for nothing but there shouldn't be a single topic you can't discuss. If cg or ea isn't willing to give you the rope necessary to work with the community then it's bound to end in flames...

    Great question to put out there. We don't need to know all the details, but if the intention of the event has changed from what we were told before this is the kind of thing to communicate with us about.

    Okay, so what I've been told is the cadence is every weekend for now. We are thinking about including GCs in the Monthly Event Calendar.

    Having said that, we are definitely looking at making the GCs more frequent. I don't want to make promises if I'm not certain they'll manifest. But, I will continue to push player sentiment on this issue and it's something the studio wants as well.

    Can we stop calling this a "new game mode"? This is a once a week event that runs for 3 days but he rewards don't refresh. The sith raid was new, GAC was new, but this is not new content. This not always available as a mode to play and it not new. A few new effects and different team restrictions but otherwise it is disappoint.

    Please refer to this for what it is, a "once weekly event that is not always available to play".

    I am so glad we go this instead of a guild level sandbox. It is nice not begin able to use your roster beyond your arena team. Thank you CG for giving us 20 new minutes a week.

  • just abandon the whole thing and get back to start with a new raid and a sandbox mode (no, it's NOT expensive)

  • why not just add more events to the journey guide? especially the more rare ones like galactic bounties or mythic events. gives the player base a lot of daily content to go through. maybe even consider adding raids to the journey guide?

    why would raids be added to the journey guide? they're guild events.

    just to pass the time and try out new teams. don't need to add the rewards.
  • @CG_Doja_Fett with how you said GC are only weekend evens for now. can you see if they will at least double the rewards until the become more often? the rewards were set for every 3 days, but if they only happen once a week they arent as great.

    plus more mod slicing materials that way
  • That's ridiculous. One year to update unity with no content and now : including some complicated stuff involving the tool used to create the events.
    We want the ocean you promised since 2019.stop the lie

  • Can you at least leave it available the whole week? When people begged for it to last 1-2 days, they thought they would be back to back. But I would like to have it available to test teams, or to play on days with no events.
  • I swear I heard someone from CG say that they had taken all this time to put systems in place that would allow them to crank out events like this much quicker. Now we are back to once a week even though the tools are supposedly ready now. This is so ridiculous.
  • let me guess: the tool also doesn't allow for an increase of the rewards

    First of all I like the fact, that CG really tries to make things go right. In general increase in communication by both community manager, correct things related to events like GL, farming ticets etc.

    I think regarding the GC thing that this process is still "experimental". What I think and hope that after this stage we will see an increase in their cadence after some sort of time.

    But there's one thing. Please buff GL Luke. He's one of the hardest GL to get and he should be as good to conter GL SEE. Luke should get anti Sith Synergy or something that should prevent him and his allies to be destroyed like that.

    Thank you Doja and the whole CG Team and I hope to hear soon good news.
    I'm looking forward to hear soon about the big update. @CG_Doja_Fett

    Not for nothing but there shouldn't be a single topic you can't discuss. If cg or ea isn't willing to give you the rope necessary to work with the community then it's bound to end in flames...

    Again, this is just a lack of understanding of the position.

    He is not the decision maker, which limits what he can say.

    Just because he lacks authority of a decision maker doesn't mean he cannot discuss a problem the community has or perceives. If cg is going to prevent him from even touching the topic then what exactly is the point???

    He doesn't have to be a decision maker to acknowledge a conversation....
  • I vote for making assault battles run for two days again. Vastly more content, zero effort.
  • When people begged for it to last 1-2 days, they thought they would be back to back.

    I tried to tell people that was a bad assumption, but no one wanted to listen.

    That's not how I read Doja Fett's comments. Admittedly IANADF, but I thought DF was saying that there are topics on which DF cannot even attempt to provide answers. That's not fun, but it's still not what you're saying, which is t hat DF cannot even acknowledge that a question has been asked.

    Think of the chaos it would cause if someone asked if (insert your favorite GL to hate on here) is going to get a buff, and DF said something like,
    Discussions are ongoing, but right now the sense of the room is that (Particular GL) is going to get buffs to X & Y. Don't count on it of course, but that's the feeling in the room.

    and then PGL was not buffed b/c even though the answer was honest and the answer was clear that no final decision had been made, people somehow thought they were entitled to make decisions on which GL to pursue based on that info.

    For that reason, there are going to be topics which DF cannot address, but I think it's entirely unlikely that there's any such thing as a topic DF cannot acknowledge. Address and acknowledge are two different things.
  • GC was meant to be daily content with rewards. Are you able to suggest if we're going to get more opportunities to increase our reward income? Specifically the new slicing mats that you're locking behind this, now, weekend event?
  • I vote for making assault battles run for two days again. Vastly more content, zero effort.

    Making them able to be simmed would be better.
  • Other than the Mk2 mod slicing parts, I'd be fine with it staying once a week; Galactic Challenges can be a little tedious, especially when pursuing some of the trickier feats.

    yes it does. until a decision is reached he cannot speak "out of turn" or really say anything about the internal discussion without the Ok to do so.

    I vote for 24 fully crafted stun guns each week.

    Unfortunately this is not a democracy.
    The CGDF is recruiting. Say hi in our Discord! https://discord.gg/AmStGTH
  • I liked getting more stun guns today. That was really useful :smile:

    You can solo all 3 of them now... though sith raid is still a challenge for me.

    But for real, HAAT and PIT would be fun to play for no rewards any time i wanted


  • Playing the KAM mission for practice would also be good. There's no reason a zero-reward KAM mission can't be in the journey guide.

    Playing the KAM mission for practice would be good but there is a good reason for not letting players practice that mission as much as they want. So that they overprepare by investing on Shaak Ti + 501st more than whats the minimum ask
  • Kudos on the improvements that seem to come each GC.

    Hoping the next one includes multiple faction feats rather than just feats for one faction. A “featured faction” feat along with other lesser feats for other factions would push this over the top for me.

    But kudos again to CG for what have been steady improvements, imho.
