Some Random Midweek Thoughts

Prev1345
Hello Holotable Heroes,

Lots of things going on in the world.

Also, Halloween is creeping up on us and Mando Season 2 is almost here!

But, let's ignore all that for now and talk about a few other things instead.

This post on Reddit came to my attention and I thought it was great! I'm always a fan of such shenanigans, and things like this show our opponents we have a human side. We come together in SWGoH because we geek out for Star Wars, and then we are pitted against each other in battle. It's fun and compelling, but going out of your way to give someone on the other side of the trenches a chuckle is grade-A stuff, imo.

In case you missed it, this guild was involved in a lopsided loss and decided they would go for an insane amount of attempts against a SLKR squad to give their opponent a good laugh. Well done!

Also, there's been a bit of scuttlebutt regarding a perceived bug in the SEE event. One player stated:

"I ran into a bug where Ben Solo had damage immunity and couldn't be killed during the SEE event even with Rey under 50% health. After I used SEE's ultimate, did his AOE to do health reduction, it was Vader's turn, I used merciless massacre, saber throw on Ben, and a basic and he did not die like he should have, the next move was Rey using saber throw on my Dooku and killing him while also healing up."

At first I didn't catch the finer details and thought, "Well, yeah...If Ben has Damage Immunity, he's not gonna die or get damaged."

But, what I think the player was getting at is when Rey and Ben are both in red health, that implies they are under 50% health and Damage Immunity should not apply. So, I went to a designer and was told that "red health doesn't necessarily equate to less than 50% Health. If he was super close to 50%, there's a chance he'd show red and not be below the threshold."

I decided to share this in case other players were similarly curious.

Also, I'll throw this out there; Are you gonna get all gussied up for Halloween? If so, what're you gonna go as? I bought a Threepio costume that I'm adding an Elvis wig and glasses to so I can become "EP-3O" and shake a golden leg.

Lastly, but not leastly, be kind to each other.

    no idea what this post was trying to accomplish, So my Random Midweek Thoughts are how about talking about how under powered SEE and GML are compared to Rey or SLKR. Or how IT or Res Troops can beat them with blindfolds on? Why do they take so long to get to their ultimate's compared to other GL's

    I obviously can't speak for Doja or other members of the community, but over the months there have been lots of requests showing greater interaction and communication from the developers. In this post, Doja highlights that he was paying attention to a thread on Reddit and investigating an odd interaction that a member of the community highlighted. To me and me alone, I see it as an attempt of sharing some light hearted fun with the community while showing that he is observing the community's threads on Reddit/forums and investigating issues for players. I see it as a win for the community.

    I guess something over nothing is an improvement, and seems you only require a small or simple "shout out" to be fulfilled as your return on your investment. We are no where even close to what it was or even should be compared to previous communications.

    Wait we could have had a pun thread?????

    Apparently.

    Let not have him burn all his good ideas in the first month.

    I mean, it's not too late. Should we make this happen sooner rather than Vader?

    I luke the way you're thinking.

    So, I mean, I appreciate that this is an answer, but handwaving it away as “not a bug” feels kind of wrong?

    If the health bar color doesn’t mean anything useful, what’s the point of it at all?

    Could we either get: some clear numbers on what percentages those health bar color thresholds are if they aren’t 50%, OR (even better) could we get it fixed so that the threshhold is 50%, since, other than 100%, which is easy to see, that’s the only % of health with any meaningful mechanical interactions that I know of (and there are several others too).

    guess we're like FB or Twitter now deleting posts that make people uncomfortable, nothing to see here but lets talk about puns.... SMH

    Yep. It started rolling out yesterday.

    Or posts that spoil fun threads like this, and that are the reason we can't have nice things.

    I just want nice things that work for the effort put in to getting them..

    I think this is valid. I'll see what (if anything) we can do.

    I heard a rumor from a Chiss bartender that Kyle Katarn is coming to the holotables dressed up as ig11 for Halloween.
