    Everyone big announcement to make!!

    This round in GAC I am facing off against Free2Play Padawan, the YouTuber part of F2P nation, whose discord server I have been part of for a while now. He did an roster spotlight of both my accounts this month.

  • I have 3 teams; bb, phoenix and geo
    Bad Batch was a gift from CG(marquee event)
    How do I split them into 3v3 for GAC defence?
    Been playing since 1 April 2021 and will reach lvl 85 this weekend, currently 19000/20400 xp
    Thank you

    Thank you

    Geos normally I split this way:
    1) GBA + Spy + Poggle
    2) Nute + Soldier + Sun Fac

    Phoenix: Hera Kanan Zeb on defense....save Ezra for offense with other Jedi

    BB I am not sure since I haven't used them....prob Wrecker Echo & Tech? Won't be much damage but might steal banners or annoy people. Echo could also be used as a plug & play on offense

    Remember you'll also need 3 teams for offense as well...so can take 1 of the Geos if you want (GBA one prob)

    I prefer GBA, Soldier, Spy; Nute, Sun Fac, Poggle. Agree on Phoenix. Ezra isn’t needed by my Jedi so I put him on defence with my Phoenix now, but at ur stage, keep him with Jedi.

    If u have Rex, big bonus as u can use all 5 BB. Hunter, Echo, Tech makes 1 team. Rex, Wrecker, High single fire damage on the 2nd team.

  • @TheChild_eats_eggs1 Yeah Geos there are a lot of options to mix, I think really comes down to what your opponent has and what teams you expect to go up against.

    GBA & Spy always together though, but that 3rd depends if you need another cleanse and ability block, or Soldier to pump the tm & damage.

  • Thanks @TheChild_eats_eggs1

    For anyone else interested, here is the stream of my GAC matchup with Padawan...both of us were on stream for the first 1 hour alternating battles attacking each other, and explaining why we chose the squads we did and strategies. Check it out, and sub to him as well!

  • I made this up a while back in response to another thread.

    I like your idea of saving up, that could be useful.

    But, I would add 1 thing, you don't have Cad Bane listed.

    He opens at 3* and is very useful for Credit Heists.

    I would make sure your passing the Lvl50 CH event before banking for Ships.

    So for Credit Heist you need the following number of Scoundrels for each tier:
    • Tier 1 (level 30): 3 scoundrels
    • Tier 2 (level 50): 4 scoundrels
    • Tier 3 (level 70): 5 scoundrels
    • Tier 4 (level 80): 5 scoundrels

    With my plan, I have included Greef, Mando and Boba in the farms who all carry that tag, and I plan to use them in a BH team long term. For the last 2, you should have already a ST Han and Lando from the Rebel training events so you can throw them in without needing to level them up. Jango and Bossk will be added long term, but won't have them in time at level 80 for that last tier.

    Another option is Zaalbar and Mission Vao, as you will be farming them for JKR anyway and they are both scoundrels. And finally Nute Gunray could work, who you can use to lead the Geo/Sep team until GBA is unlocked near level 85.

    So, I wouldn't commit any resources to Cad Bane as overall he's less useful than the rest of these, even if he's an easy unlock, the others will be part of your plan anyway.

  • How long did it take you to get one to 7*?
    You can’t participate in heroic raids earlier, right?

    Not long, I think Chopper was my first character to 7* buying him from Cantina store. BUT I also started during a time where there were double cantina energy drop weekend...so I spent lots of crystals on refreshes during that time farming Hera & Ezra....which translated into a ton of Cantina tokens for the store, to then be spent on Chopper.

    There is a double drop day coming this week, I'll try to find out what day it is. But basically you can read through the early part of this thread to find hte strategy I used to stock energy going into it.

    If you are a early level account, spending refreshes on cantina energy is the way to go as you won't have access to many good normal energy hard nodes yet, and you will be getting so much free energy from leveling up, you won't be able to spend it on those farms anyway.
  • @Taroonga
    Here is my post from week 2 where there was a double drop cantina day, you can effectively use that same strategy.
    May 28 Quick Update
    This weekend (May 28 & 29) will be double drops on all Cantina nodes, so to take advantage of this my strategy over the weekend will be as follows:
    Currently sitting on 1200 crystals
    A 100 crystal cantina refresh during double drops is effectively a 50 crystal refresh, so...
    Just before my daily reset tonight (Friday) I will use 3x cantina refreshes to get +360 cantina energy
    Just after my daily reset (so effectively May 29) I will use all this cantina energy to farm Hera's cantina node to try to bring her to 5* (Ezra already at 5*)
    I will then buy 3x more cantina refreshes each on Sat and Sun, and ensure I get Hera to 5*
    After Hera is at 5*, I will switch my cantina farm to Geo Soldier to start bringing him to 5*
    Overall I will spend 900 crystals over the next 2.5 days on Cantina energy refreshes (9 total) which will give me 1,080 cantina energy that is effectively 2,160 because of double drops
    My crystals will come down to 300 after this, but this is the best way to accelerate some of these farms
  • I hope @Intimmydation doesn’t mind but I’m going to hijack this thread a bit, and announce that I have also started an alt, with 1 sole purpose: to disprove Timmy!

    Details:
    This starts as a GAS rush. I go for Padmé and GMY, followed by 3PO, followed by GAS. After him and co. are done, I start on JKR. I probably will ignore DR, but not 100% yet. Then, I go for CLS, Chewie, JKL, JML. I still believe JML is the best GL, as he counters all the GLs (- SEE) on offence, and LV+Maul still is a slightly uphill battle on offence against him.

    I will be doing bi-weekly updates myself. I started on the 5th November, and waited to join the 10/11 arena shard.
    I might be at a disadvantage due to the hdb discount people entering my shard, but it shouldn’t halt me!

    Week 26 Update - November 18

    sx3vkpf4pdx1.png
    • 1 Million GP reached
    • GAC matchup against FreeToPlay Padawan live streamed on YouTube (see posts above to watch) - Win for IntimmyD2, but very efficient banners on both sides!
    • Shaak Ti and 501st clones activated, will use for a team in Div 10 (need 4 defense + 4 offense)
    • Fleet dominance with Malev, still hitting rank #1 daily
    • Squad Top 50 consistently
    • Jolee Bindo 7*
    • Kyber club!

    Current Farms
    • Normal Energy - Hyena Bomber & Imp Tie Bomber, gear for troopers (mainly Kyrotechs from LS 7B especially during double drops this week)
    • Fleet Energy - JKA Eta2, Umbarran, Shaak Ti, 3C normal for relic salvage
    • Mod Energy - Slicing mats to top back up to 250 each
    • Cantina Energy - ARC Trooper
    • Squad Store - Prestige
    • GW Store - Plo Koon's ship, Umbarra, maxed ships for SSC
    • Cantina Store - maxed characters for SSC
    • Guild / Champ / Shard Shop Stores - Bottleneck gear

    Going to do a little spotlight of the Arena setups I am running

    Squad Arena

    kkf6deqx6fo9.png
    • I normally target other relic Vader teams, even if Vader is faster
    • My Vader must be faster than ALL but 1 of the enemy characters
    • Han is here to use "Han Shoots First" ability to open the battle, which I stun Vader (or fastest character)
    • Vader then uses Force Crush > MM > usually basic on everyone to ability block them
    • Gideon strips TM from enemies
    • Piett is there as everytime someone attacks, I gain a stack of Emperor's Trap which is stacking my offense
    • Mow the enemy down
    • If I have a battle left over after reaching top 50, I will swap out Han and put GBA in as a pre-taunt, to hold a bit better on defense

    Fleet Arena

    0hqa4hofgalp.png
    • I only take one reinforcement in this lineup, which then forces the AI to uses special abilities bringing out more summoned Vulture Droids while my fleet is on defense
    • Get buzz droids spread around, HB can ignore HT's taunts and target other ships with buzz droids which then gets assisted by my VDs
    • Call in Spy to put up taunt on someone other than HT, blow them up with special
    • Keep spamming Malev specials to keep 5 ships out there at all times
  • Week 17.

    I skipped phoenix and went KRU into Nute geos. Going for Malak then SLKR as a counterpoint to SEE. I'm buying finalizer - all energy goes to gear until my arena team is done.

    fk0l5poa2wiy.png

    I get top 5 thanks to a cheater and the farthest I fall back is 17. Intimmy suggested I use Han's shoot first over GMY for teams that are faster than me which works perfectly.

    I appear to have a crystal advantage, but my PvE income is low.
  • @BoonCapital

    Very nice to see your results, and still really impressed with your top 20 GAC ranking after last season, well done!

    I still haven't managed to climb that high in Squad Arena, but still gearing my Troopers (they are all g11 or g12, so getting close). I was debating whether to go for DR & Malak before SEE or not, and I think I still will....as having a relic Malak to tank with SEE is super powerful.
