    In the past spenders just got a character from spending. Kinda boring. Only outcome making that spending fell worthwhile was after they release 5 chasing that timeframe then they would attach an even that requires all 5 to get the intended 6th character. Only advantage spenders got was they didn’t need to panic farm. If you are good with crystal hoarding you could spend some in shipments to get some shards while farming the rest and usually just make it in time for the event drop.
    This is a different way to promote a new character and show. Rewarding spenders and hoarders who purchased the set required characters. Not to upset anyone (hahah) the increased the frequency to off set the requirements so people didn’t lose any rewards.
    I think the problem (beside lack of communication) is people assumed we would be getting x2 rewards a week and had a bad (mad) surprise when they put in mando feat.
    Do I think it’s sneaky, not at all. They need to make money and they are testing the waters and promoting a show while at the same time giving people who spend or hoard management better a slight gift. Since they don’t celebrate Xmas in the Star Wars universe after all.

    yes, this is what I'm saying for weeks, talking about values.
    this will create a bad precedent, unless EA somehow, magically changes its mind.
    you could argue it motivates you to farm mando (Beskar) but if they pull in New characters it will be bad. given how hard is the gear crunch nowadays with GL races and recently r8.
    it will hurt not just f2p players but a bigger majority of the playerbase. why would be a spender if your bought 'advantage' gets invalidated by random moves from EA time to time? think about it
    I’m not sure I follow this tbh.

    Before they introduced the alternating Bando feats, when there was only 1 GC a week, players could earn a maximum of 20 of the new mod slicing material.

    Now, with 2 GCs a week, players who didn’t spend / burn Crystal hoard to get Bando can earn 75% more of the mod slicing material. Players who did spend can earn 100% more.

    Everyone gets more. Those who spent get even more. I don’t see how this is a new precedent?

    Like all players aren't in competition with eachother and -getting more- is an isolated incidence...

    Mando feats sets a precedent that's imo higly likely to be followed by X feats as new toons get released. I would be mighty surprised if it gets left at mando.
    Probably, but if ftp are getting more than they did before, I don’t see what the problem is?

    Point id like to make.... is this is relative to the individual only not universal teuth

    You really arent getting more. You are getting the oppertunity at more.

    Example:
    Week1
    GC1 = resistance with beskar mando feat
    GC2 = first order with no mando feat.

    Well if player X only has resistance built up and has garbage FO.... they are being limited by GC1 rewards and are not getting a similar shot with GC2.

    If GC2 was the same as GC1 without mando, youd be 100% correct.

    However unless you have all your roster built, this GC style is a potential limit to players just as much as its a potential bonus to players. Depends on your roster and how much you have invested into each faction.

    With the factions being on rotation, over time this should offset. If it doesn’t, then the point completely stands.

    I don't know how to explain this further so I give up, problem is encapsulated in your last sentences. they lock things behind paywall requirements. do you think this is okay? (you mix the two things together, I separate them)

    regardless how much you spend in this game.
    were they forced to give this extra feat after increasing the frequency just to show they don't care about improvements and good communication? :|
    I guess it’s one of those agree to disagree scenarios.

    They’ve made a change that gives everyone more and spenders a little more on top. Surely we all agree they have to provide some incentive for people to spend? Otherwise there’s no spending, which means no game.

    Would you rather we all got less? Serious question.

    I like the fact I can slice 7 6E to 6D every 2 weeks compared to 4 every 2 weeks before. The fact that spenders can slice 8 compared to my 7 just doesn’t bother me.

    how many ppl are spending for GC feats? Really? How many ppl went "ooh i better drop $50+ bucks to unlock Mando for this GC feat so I get the red box!" Ppl who have beskar mando unlocked, got him not because of GC. That's a very safe assumption to make.

    It's not a paywall, I have 60k crystals and could have used them to have MBA by now if I wanted.

    With that said, this game has *always* given spenders an early advantage. It's so funny to me how people keep being shocked by it.

    The phrase early advantage is the problem with your logic. Because it implies that beskar mando feats will be around consistently from now on (we all know they won't be). They're going to keep shifting to a new toon you must pay to unlock in some fashion, so F2Ps will struggle to achieve it. This isn't something where the rest of the player base can "catch up" to the P2Ps. They're always going to be behind because the gate is going to change.

    Most of these arguments in favor of this arrangement seem to overlook the fact that this month's Beskar Mando feats won't feature Beskar Mando in February. In March. In April. In May. Every single one I've read is "well f2p will get there eventually so this is okay". No they won't. That's because CG has opted to paywall it.

    Congratulations on your 60k crystal hoard. I certainly do not have that many crystals, and I know of no one that does. Just because you have that many, doesn't mean everyone else does or can even hoard that amount.
  • Man, talk about spoilers for season 3 of mando. Did you know he's now secretly a jedi? Must be, since he's a feat for a jedi-centric galactic challenge. Seriously, these feats are a joke. Might as well not have a specific faction as the focus. Just waiting now for CG to give us the feat "solo the phase with R8 CUP". Might as well since their feats don't care about their own theme. Next, we'll get a death star raid that gives special bonuses to old republic, because, ya know, revan was in the background the whole time. That wasn't the falcon saving Luke, turns out it was the ebon hawk. 😉
  • I'm sure it's been said several times before but the most challenging thing about the Galactic Challenges is not being able to grind the the Mandalorian toons fast enough.

    Gated requirements for GC (for maximum rewards) and gated requirements (r5) for the 'challenge' pit raid, oh, and LSTB still being an absolute nightmare if you haven't got the GLs and JML. Can us non whale and kraken players catch a break?

    Pfff! Yeah right.
  • What the HELL CG? why is it that you keep robbing people of rewards because we didn't go out and spend £600 on unlocking everything for BESKAR???? -

    We have another Galatic Challenge today which is for the JEDI, NOTHING todo with Mandalorian and we need BESKAR to unlock the full rewards?????????????

    Where is the logic in that???

    Honesty putting a spending freeze on this game as of now until we see an end to this madness.

    May I be so bold as to ask why you have 60k crystals? What are you saving for?

    They need the $$$ 😂
  • BUT we have like 2 DAYS - NO ONE in their right mind is going to SPEND the best part of £1000 just to level up everything they need to unlock this FEAT for a handful of MOD gear - It's completely nonsensical.

    Except youtubers and obviously, whales.
    Speaking of which, we need a more relatable youtuber who is ftp. Im struggling to find a youtuber i can relate to because they all whale HARD. anyone recommend a ftp youtuber ?

    I used to watch cubs, but since he whales so much now he isn't ftp friendly.

    Pointing out the obvious but you don't even need to be a light spender, let alone a whale, to have Rey and JML at this point.

    You can keep watching Cubs. With all the whaling he will soon be able to compete with some casual F2Ps.

    Before Bando: 1 GC a week

    After Bando: 2 GCs per week, 1 of which you don’t get full rewards, but you still get more than you did before.

    Forum: “stop robbing me of rewards”
  • Did you not see the announcement that it's going to last through January? And do you not realize that half isn't every?

    Absolute nonsense. You do realise people started playing this game at different times and aren't whaling? The whole "at this point" or you have no excuses argument is pathetic and frankly insulting.

    I dunno about others but I'm farming them full as f2p to catch gc rewards last 2 bam weeks of january and hopefully the rewards will continue. So completely flipped due this reward.

    I wish i could pin this comment
  • It would appear beskar mando is now the only critical addition to every faction, not cool

    My opinion is Beskar Mando will be a central requirement in a future update, but the persistent requirement to use him for GCs is a complete and total gut shot..

    Instead of REQUIRING for the GC feats, the same ‘CG recommends you build ASAP messaging’ could be achieved by adding him to the feat conditional requirements.

    For example, defeat with a ‘squad of full Jedi’ could be ‘squad of full Jedi or 4 Jedi and Beskar Mando’

    The way it occurs now, I have a solid Jedi lineup, but can’t even attempt to complete the Jedi GC because... I didn’t farm Kara, so I can’t unlock Beskar Mando, but I did farm Mando and Greef, but that means exactly nothing...

    The point is, I would be greatly appreciated if instead of making Beskar Mando a road block as a hard requirement, he could be made an additional qualifier! This would say Beskar Mando is a great benefit, a solid game investment, instead of a pay-gate etc.

    Also I would suggest that a ‘character focus’ be announced; CG could announce a ‘character focus’ for GCs, indicating that for the next 6 months character X counts towards feat completion... I would suggest a character focus is started every 3 months, but lasts for 6 months !! This would show a player has time to both farm and benefit from a CG ‘character focus’, but allow new characters to be introduced to the focus, and also avoid ‘I just got done farming for the GC character focus and now it’s gone’... ‘Character focus’ could include a damage multiplier! an armor bonus! a self revive bonus! it could be different for every ‘character focus’ to enhance the focus to build that character!!! The point is, it’s a value add, instead of a takeaway!!

    A CG ‘character focus’ would be amazing, the community could be plainly guided for future content, and it wouldn’t be jaded by the Beskargate controversy that denies players like myself, or worse yet, those that have a JML, from even attempting to complete a Jedi GC

    Then you must realize that people who have played this game longer and built up a roster should have an easier time with endgame content than someone who hasn’t put as much time (or some amount of money to offset the time). To suggest otherwise is pathetic and frankly insulting.

    Today is the first time I've been able to beat tier 7.

    Unfortunately I am still locked out of the final crate because of Beskar Mando feats.

    Feelsbadman.

    Don’t worry. I have a Beskar Mando, and I can’t do the feats either. Can easily beat tier 7 undersized with Jedi, but can’t get Bando to do 230k dmg. Even with Masters training and Bastilla buffs on him. Of course mine is only g8... 😂
  • Today's GC has the insta-kill ability. If MBA uses that ability, does the damage caused count towards his feat? My MBA is only g9, so I've not completed tier 6 for that feat yet. I've not managed to time it so MBA has the opportunity to use it.

    I don’t think so.
  • Ahhh, took me 90 seconds to complete this “jedi” event and now i get to wait 2 days to get my lesser box because Bando is a stealth jedi.
    Looking forward to the imperial armorer feat...
