    Awesome - just started this round of GA and my opponent has SEE on defense, and since matchmaking doesn't factor in number of GL's on a roster (as in me having none), that's and auto win for him.

    Taking away our counters was a great idea...thanks for that.

    I'd sit this one out, but my **** hurts.

    How many GLs do you own?

    :thinking:

    In my defense, words in brackets can be ignored when reading sentences

    :can they?:

    That's a bit liberal in grammatical rules to say they "can be" ignored.
    Use parentheses to set off (typically nonessential) information:
    Webster’s New World College Dictionary Rules of Punctuation explains parentheses are used “to enclose material that is explanatory, supplementary, or illustrative.”

    The AP Stylebook, which isn’t particularly fond of parentheses, states, “There are occasions, however, when parentheses are the only effective means of inserting necessary background or reference information.”

    Technically yes, I should have separated it out with a dashed em for 'emphasis', or comma for separation and continuation, especially since the information - while explanatory and supplemental - was still essential and "necessary background or reference information", but in a short post that only has a few sentences in total, the presumption is that it will still be read in its entirety and not subject to being glossed over for grammatical liberties.

    Also, it was in parentheses () not brackets [], those are entirely different - and have a separate ruleset for usage.

    Regardless, my point still stands - changing the ruleset used for battling GL's without also changing matchmaking to ensure fair fights is absolute ****

    A person without any GL's should never be matched against a person with a GL, ever. By the rules of the game, since non-GL counters have been removed, it's by definition an automatic win for the one with a GL, and therefore not a fair match.
  • Not everyone puts their GLs on defense, but in general I agree.

    I did see the joke, just "ignored" it as he did my lack of GL's statement.

    Ok
  • I get their wanting to make GLs the best, but to weaken those characters overall and make them less viable in the game as a whole? That’s weak @CG_SBCrumb_MINI
  • Where was it stated that executor is a timed event? Thought considering the reqs that it would be unlocked like GLs once I met the requirements. When's it back?

    It is on the monthly calendar. Listed as September 18. So, if you miss that keep an eye out for the October calendar (and so forth).

    They are probably still buffing LV to make him the strongest GL.
    "Thank you for evaluating."

    Preach!

    They wait until we're angry enough and then they play their best card: LV kit reveal... and everyone will clap like mindless seals and problems will be forgotten.

    Unless it makes it worse. Then they’ll have a problem.

    Weren't most of the characters re-balanced? I.e. GAS is now stronger than before with his clones, but weaker as a sidekick.

    Except Wat of course, who shows up on every other GL squad as it is and probably needed a nerf.

    WAT is an endgame toon. He should be OP compared to something you can farm easy. They could at least have added like offence up to the weapon tech

    Vader was ruined. GAS was part of the JML team and that team is now weakened.


    There is no balance

    Clearly they intended to make you use GAS with 501st again. Right or wrong, there's no denying that GAS 501st was buffed.

  • I would love to know if CG is actually listening to all the negative feedback they have been getting. People are not happy and leaving the game and even big spenders are either wanting to quit the game or stop spending. Does CG care or will they just bury their head in the sand and let the game die due to stubbornness

    Check out *any* feedback platform you want (e.g., the latest Google play reviews). I cant find anyone who legitimately thinks the combination of changes made in the past two months is good.

    It seems like CG had a brain storming session on how to increase profits, and instead of metering out some of them over time to gradually influence spending, they dropped every change at once, thinking that if some is good, more is better.

    I dont think any of them ever studied something like queueing theory and the concept of balking.
    Some data analyst saw a linear trend and then assumed it could be extrapolated along all real numbers...
  • It was bad enough they nerfed the non-GL counters, but due to the AI changes they added yesterday, they are even nerfing GL vs. GL counters. They have really cut down options and strategy for GAC and TW.
