Why does GL Luke require 21 characters at relic 3+

Prev134
I thought the requirements were going to be 14 characters and a ship, not an additional 7 characters on top of it, sure Rey needed heroes journey Rey and BB8, but to get those 2 you only needed gear 8 and 9 characters, not relic 3,
Sure you are technically correct like bunch of lawyers that pat themselves on the back when they find loopholes, now go pat urself on the back

  • Oh and icing on the cake, that is 2700 kyros to go from gear 12 to 13 for those 21 characters lol (not including the ones chewy&3po and MM needs) GL Luke better be the best GL
  • Is it 15? I can see that it's listed as x/15 on journey guide, but I thought it's merely placeholder until full set is revealed. There was this disrepancy of different #s in the beginning too. I expect last set to still be 3 until we know otherwise.

    To you question, Why does GL Luke require 21 characters at r3: in short he doesn't. You are simply ignoring the gain of JKL.

    In short yes it does, last time I checked you need 9 characters at relic 3 to get him, add the 15 you need to unlock GL Luke, remove the 2 that is shared between the JKL and GL Luke, that makes 22 characters

    correct you need 9 to get JKL. that step is done, and a step in and of itself. and you are rewarded as such.

    now you move onto a different goal JML, who needs 15 characters.
    if you run 2 races in the same day, even back to back, the length of the second race is still the same.

    This is so myopic Mister McGoo is offering you his glasses.

    JKL is GET1 locked behind Hoda/Wampa, and is ONLY THREE MONTHS OLD.

    As I said earlier, if these things are an issue for you, the new GLs aren’t intended for you right now.

    There are 2200+ JKLs on swgoh.gg - it’ll be much more than that this time tomorrow.

    If JKL was useless you might have a point. Emphasis on might. Since he's not useless, you don't.

    Yes true, he is not useless, infact he is great, I'm getting him, GL Luke too, just seems the price is bit steep, without knowing their kits and how they gonna perform in pve/pvp. So far papa Palpatine is so much cheaper compared to Luke, but he is LUKE, so I'm gonna farm him anyways

    I mean we 'knew' Rey and Kylo's kits but then they changed Kylo's after he was released so one could argue you never really know the kit, even when CG releases it. They can change it on a whim.

    In reality it’s still 15

    Yeah worst thing about online games man, you buy something expect it to work the same allways and boom an update later it isn't the same, thats just how online games work now days

    Weirdly, gl Luke is easier to get for some players, because they already geared up those useful toons, because old meta, assault battles, raids and such.

    So far, Luke is more veteran oriented, as it was stated by fellow forumers before.

    The problem is the collecting aspect of this strategy game.

    On a strategic point of vue, those asymetrical requirements are great, because they provide us meaningful choices.

    On a collector point of vue, who wants a certain character just because he/she likes it, having it out of reach for now probably is frustraring though, because he/she can't hear 'go for palp, you'll get Luke next year', especially if he/she was ready to pay for it.

    Hard to please everyone i guess :(

    There was 3.5k jkls before this event where almost all of them was geared. This is the situation now and we are early in the event.

    JTR requires 5 toons!
    Palps requires 5 rebel toons!
    R2-D2 need 5 empire toons!

    Why? Cos it’s a different event so the JKL toons shouldn’t count.

    Mate you missed the point, they required 5 gear 8 and 9 toons, not 9 relic 3 toons

    JKL is GET1 locked behind Hoda/Wampa, and is ONLY THREE MONTHS OLD.

    And is one of the best chars in the game requiring another one of the best chars in the game (Vader) aswell as another 4 top tier chars (CLS, Chewie, 3PO, HY), a kinda outdated but still usable char (Wampa), a mediocre char that can be used however with MM (Lando - and JML says hi) and only 2 garbage chars (ROLO, CHS).
    And if gearing up a whole bunch of good/very good chars for JML is bothering you (despite it being an incredible cost/use ratio) so much you can still either go for one of the other GL's (Palp or the old ones) and probably be fine since CG said they'd be pretty much on the same power level. Even though the logical and smart thing to do right now is to save up all resoruces and wait for the first gameplay tests with the new GL's (and their ultimates!!) to see how they compete.

    I like to think it’s a trade-off, you can “easily” get SEE but you will relic “bad” characters or you will have to relic more characters (making it “difficult”) but you relic more good characters than bad. The short path but with mud or the long road.
  • They made it so then all the whales will work towards GL Luke (thinking that because he’s harder to get he will be the better GL)

    Just for CG to buff Palpatine a month or so after to make Palpatine the better GL in most scenarios.

    I’m looking at you Rey/Kylo
  • You could make an argument that GL Palp is more "expensive" in the fact that a lot of his requirements are going to not be used but affect your matchmaking.

    Everyone required for Luke (So far) will definitely be usable in a pretty decent team.

    Simply said -

    Saying JML only needs 14 toons at relic levels is like saying Doctors only need four years of schooling.

    If someone can explain how to get JML without a relic Wampa then I will change my mind.

    Have a nice day

    Same way you can get SEE without rebels
  • Being uber technically speaking, to unlock GL Luke, you need at least 50 toons/ships.

    All a matter of your current perspective 🤷‍♂️
  • It's a GL so there is no worrying about not being ready for the event. You take one toon at a time even if it takes you 6 months to finish them all. The end result is a meta toon and, so far, all of the requirements are good to great toons that you would want to gear anyway. Not sure you can say that about Palp.
