I thought I had things figured out but with the new announcement of GM Luke and EEP, I don't know if I should change my path.
I have been working on getting the characters needed and gearing them up for GAS. I'm not quite ready, I know. My hope was to get GAS and get his clones in a better spot than they are at, start running him in arena etc. Also works for fleet arena teams as well. Not shown is that after this next TB, I'll have enough currency to unlock the negotiator but for reference, I'll also have enough that I could, if I wanted 7* wampa as I've been saving for GAS and anyone who thinks JK Luke won't be needed for GM luke is kidding themselves. I also will have ARC trooper finished within the next week or two based on how many shards I have and sims a day. I've been avoiding the GLs as I specifically thought I had way more time before the next batch (like, roughly they'd get announced in Dec. again) and while the GLs themselves are great, I don't feel I have enough of the rest of the roster to not kill myself in GAC. I'm not trying to be the best in every mode, but I do want to push myself to be better where I can.
I'm not F2P but I'm also not spending a whole lot. Mostly just buy extra crystals for extra energy for farming. My guild is running DS Geo and LS Hoth TB at the moment, (21/44 stars respectively) but is discussing going to LS Geo soon.
So, advice on what to do at this point. Thanks.
A) I could keep my current plan, keep gearing up and relicing those needed for GAS because that'll bring in extra crystals (in theory) and etc. but I feel I'll just move up in arena to move back down when the new GLs hit.
B ) put a spending freeze of my gear and materials and try to jump on one of the GLs when the time comes (this could be any of the 4 after the new ones are released) just need to farm the characters
C)Abandon GAS and start farming for one of the new or old GLs.
D)some other option that someone with more experience will see.
