So I'm not a new player, I've played for quite some time, but it's my first F2P mobile game, so I've really badly managed everything (I've gone up to hard level 8 DS battles with Vader, Talia, Imperial Guard, Boba and Nihilus and that's it). I have lots of unlocked characters, even lots of 5 to 7 stars, but my stupid management so far led me to a very bad situation where I don't have nearly enough credits or cristals, and I'm way lower in arenas compared to where I'm supposed to be at level 85. My only level 85 team is Phoenix, I don't have enough credits to train my other characters to this point. I do everything I can everyday, I have a legit imperial team in the making (they are all about level 70 and 5 to 7 stars), all needed characters for GLS at 6 stars minimum (but not enough credits to level them up). I'd like some advices on how to save what can be saved (mainly get credits, that's what I'm lacking most so far).
My goal isn't and never has been to play competitively, I just want to be able to unlock characters and play and have fun with them (one of my reasons for playing the game is because I love Rebels and it's the only game in which the Phoenix are featured, there was Force Arena at one point but no more). I'm a fully F2P player, so buying cristals isn't an option. I know people will probably tell me to restart an account. I would really prefer to avoid this, for I don't want to lose my current account (may seem weird, but I'm not only talking about the characters I have unlocked and stuff, but also about the account, all the milestones and stuff, over several years, I'd miss it). If you tell me there is no way to save my account, so be it. But if there is a way (and I'm willing to do what must be done, had it take months or even a year), I'm willing to take the chance.
Thanks in advance for the advices and replies.
