Worst Event Ever

Tier 4 of the GAS event is without question the worst event in this game. I didn’t think LS Malak could ever be beaten, but CG managed to make an event even less fun than Malak’s event. From the cut scenes showing repeatedly to the complete randomness of each battle, it’s terrible.

    In my experience Tier 2 was worse. I had to play it 20-30 times to win, while I won tier 4 at 3rd try.
    Playing again the event "for fun" I see the same...

  • Why doesn’t Magna get his bonus turn when he gets down to 1 health?
  • If he takes damage after he gets to 1 health (like arc brings him to 1 health and after that the turret attacks him) he dies

    Tiers 2 and 4 both require some pretty specific modding and strategy. If you have these right, neither tier is that crazy, provided that you also have your characters geared/relic’ed up enough. The good thing is that all the needed characters are valuable for lots of other parts of the game, so the gear/relic investment is a good one. I recommend watching YouTube vids and following the recommended modding and strategy. Sir GG and Ian have good guides, among others. Good luck!

    I followed one of those videos last time the event came around and part 4 still required numerous retries and plenty of RNG before finally winning.
  • There is definitely more than an average amount of RNG in the event - no doubt on that. I probably overdid it a bit on relics for the sep droids, which made P4 more straightforward. But that team is really good in so many other game modes, so it was worth it to me. Congrats on getting the unlock!
  • Yesterday after about 20 tries on Phase 4 I changed my strategy slightly and won. This morning for kicks I tried again using that same strategy and was blown away. RNG is really high with this event. I did not change my mods around specifically for this, but was about to if I hadn't won that time yesterday. The way it is suggested to change Droideka to make it fast is completely different than nominal use of Droideka.
  • Fwiw - I think that having DDK modded to be fast may be better once you get the Sep team to the relic level
  • Finally beat it, and I stand by my statement that the event was very poorly designed. But at least I’m done with it.
  • I find that the more gear and better mods I have on, the less rng is a factor. fwiw
    Maybe End Game isn't for you
  • cancerous. The OP doesn't like the rng of this event but compares it to ls malak event (which isn't all that rng dependent).

    Could it be that the OP is trying to beat it with a bad strategy, bad mods, low gear, or all three.

    Yes there is rng but if you mod correctly and use a smart strategy, you can reduce it to a tolerable level. And you can always gear the characters up more to reduce your chance of losing because of bad rng.

    This event isn't anymore rng than 3p0 or chewie. It's just set for relics rather than g11. Using g12 on this event produces similar results to using g10 ewoks or bhs for 3p0 or chewie.

    I beat it with a r3 b1, r3 assaj, g12 droiddekka, g12 magna, and a g11 b2.

    It was an rng fest with regular mods but not as bad with arena level mods. Even so I still barely won on the attempt that I won on so you probably need more gear if you don't like rng.

    GG says in the video with his strat it could still take you 100 tries....
  • The problem is the vastness of the RNG, not the existence of RNG.

    Following those strats with R3 B1, B2, and DDK, R1 AV, and G12 magna - shouldn't result in tries where you lose 3-4 toons before you can get Anakin down once (rare, but still), frequently lose 2, frequently lose 1, and occasionally 0. Then, have the same wide ranging RNG on how many (if any) clones you can kill once you get through. It's like the 'random' is between 1-a million, but success happens only if you roll a 1-10. Yeah, you put a few thousand people through that and some will get through in a few ties. Most will not.

    As noted, the posted 'strategies' still say it can require a ton of tries even using the strats.

    It is terrible design. i agree, too, i wouldn't compare it to malak. I followed those strats and did it in 2-3 tries. BH's were tough, but i wasn't even a pure G12 on those.

    The rng isn't that vast. I had r3 asajj, r3 b1, g11 b2 and g12 for the other two. And I only had a some runs where I lost a character before anakin went down and seldom lost more than one.

    My guess is that your mods need work. At that gear level if you mod for some speed and enough health and damage, you should be able to consistently get anakin down before losing people.
