    What about the 10 character shard etc ?

    10 character shards are from 1 star characters dropping.

    He's a forum mod, so yes he speaks from a place of authority. Both Doja and I work very closely with the moderators. Kyno works tirelessly to escalate important issues to our attention and relays updates when he can.

    I'll 2nd this. The forums are a huge place with voluminous conversations happening. Without Kyno helping to direct traffic and working with us on important issues, we wouldn't be as effective. He's essential.

    How you going to drop a bomb like "Nothing", And then just delete it?

    Common man

    Hey, what's "Nothing"?

    Hahaha they are censoring "things"

    Yes just the whole character rates are doubled.

    as far as I know there are no 10 shard drops from there. that is a full character drop at 1 star (or is it 2)

    Please don’t do anything negative toward @CG_Doja_Fett! His addition to the team has been wonderful so far. This recent response performed by @CG_Doja_Fett has ignited a spark into the community in a very positive way. If it was intentional, fantastic use of PR.

    Yes just the whole character rates are doubled.

    as far as I know there are no 10 shard drops from there. that is a full character drop at 1 star (or is it 2)

    I've gotten several 10 shard whole characters from bronziums in just the last week. It's characters like IG-86 and Ewok Scout.

    Which means you got a full character of 86 and Ewok Scout. They unlock at 1* and so they award 10 shards.

    Pretty sure it's 10 -> 25 -> 40 -> 80

    They said it would be in next weekend's update. Not much more to discuss about it.

    You said the nerf was fixed. It's not yet. It's planned, which is good news.

  • Just wanted to say, [redacted] has me really excited and the communication, if accidental, is still appreciated! Now we've got something to look forward to!
  • I'm glad that a plan is implemented to address a neutral net gain to the best of CG's abilities. Thank you.

    Does anybody have a minute or two to check my thinking here? I spent 300 crystals to refresh cantina energy to farm relic materials and get that guild activity tier up. Out of habit, I bought the first three characters/ships (straight line down) in the guild cantina battles store:
    t29onh1s7vn0.jpg

    So older characters are worth double the shards for the same former "price" and that makes their value neutral in the shard store where prices have also been doubled. Awesome and understood. Ships do not double drop, but they automatically... have a... double value in the shard store??? What am I missing? Something. I'm missing something. I think this impacts my choices in the GW store too.

    tl;dr: What is the best deal when purchasing characters and ships from the cantina battle and galactic war stores specifically for shard value?

    The best value is still Cassian's U-Wing as you receive 5 instead of 4 shards like other store-purchased ships. The shards are converted into double their original SSC amount. Therefore, in GW store you will get slightly more SSC from purchasing the three ships across the top rather than toons.

    The "accelerated" toons had their amount of shards doubled instead of their SSC amount.

    Same end result: double the SSC currency in either case.

    U-Wing was and still is the best value purchase.

    This. Shards are even to previous, doesnt matter shops or toons, it's a wash, they are doubled at the source or at the store on conversion.

    In the long run alway buy ships, in any store with both they cost the same but always net more:
