Galactic Chase Poll- Why not a new ship?

Prev13
Why would we poll or want a ship that is already in game and most already have? How about a new ship and poll for the faction of that ship... Make it interesting CG, quit being lazy...

    New ships have always been introduced as Galactic Chases (except for Vulture Droid, and Y-Wing those were marquees recently), besides it takes time for them to develop a new unit after the results are in

    We are getting a shipload of content after this RA (I hope), so I think making it easier to catch up to Nego / Male is a step in that direction for what they have planned

    I must've either missed those, or simply not remember them.

    What are Galactic Chases?

    They did one recently for Razor Crest. They drop the shards as extra drops on farming nodes.
    "Thank you for evaluating."
  • I voted Mal as I already have Negotiator.

    For a new player, the fleet for Mal is going to be WAY more accessible & useful.

    My question is in dev post they say this has been announced elsewhere?

    But I'm not seeing any other announcement.

    When is this supposed to happen?

  • Shard shop currency is always welcome. I haven't voted because I have both.

    Its from the most recent content update

  • Why not changes to the game that don’t make beloved characters much weaker, or changes to game modes to make them monetized trash. The continued silence from the devs shows that we are back to the good ol’ ignore the fire till it fizzles out method.

    More on topic, I think this will be a nice catch-up mechanic for newer players to diversify their fleet rosters since those two cap shops are currently locked behind some heavy GET2 farms. It’s nice that they’re giving some sort of attention to fleets finally. If only they’d add more ships to round out rosters and would pay the same attention to gear economy…..hmmmm
  • Because new units need 330 shards and it's tough to get that from a Galactic Chase

    Thank you, I never saw that.
  • Why am I trying to take a survey that does not accept this forums account or my ea account? How many accounts do I need to play now? Don’t forget my Apple account…

    I see the new Galactic Chase outlook to be an overwhelmingly great thing for the game. There's always those people who will find something to complain about even in the best things. I personally am thrilled they're helping out newer (and older) players in this way.
  • This is great, hopefully it will be enough for me to get the last 65 shards I'm missing for Mal.
    More free stuff please!

    I'm wondering why they're helping everyone unlock Geos just now. Help everyone unlock Wat so JMK becomes more accessible?
  • Here's the real poll:

    1) FO TIE Bomber
    2) MG-100 StarFortress (Resistance Bomber)

    I would hate to have to chose between those 2. I want both! And the game needs both.
  • I choose neither from this poll. They both already have an easy way to farm in game (though it is a long farm). I know razor crest already had one, but I'd love a second shot at getting mine closer to 7* that doesn't involve spending 6K crystals on the 60 shards I need over the next 6 months 😒
  • Doesn't matter which shard shop currency they give me really. It seems like a bizarre choice, but i suppose it's just another signifier that GET2 currency is devalued and ready to join the rest of obsolete shops that just offer tiny amounts of gear directly or through shard shop.
  • The form requires me to login, why? It’s supposed to be an anonymous poll.

    It is anonymous, no one on the outside can see your results.

    This was probably done to help them avoid the spam they got on the last pole.
  • I think it's cool. New players have a way of getting ships or characters faster and veteran players get extra shard shop currency. This sort of event doesn't interfere with any other events so it can run constantly no problem.

    It's such a small, simple change. Good idea.
    Ceterum censeo Patientia esse meliat.
  • What? No.

    We need a constant influx of new players, and not all of them can be whales (since if everyone was a whale, whaling would grant no advantage, and no one is going to spend a large amount of money to no advantage). Creating "catch up" mechanics is a good, healthy, even necessary part of the ongoing gave development/game balancing that must be done if we want SWGOH to continue.

    More thoughtful improvements like this, please, CG. This is a good move you're making.

    As a newer player I agree with your sentiments and love this chase concept. I think a lot of new players consider fleet an afterthought because the grind to get the ships takes forever compared to the characters and the in-game progress for fleet is negligible compared to the value more developed characters gives you. My Geos, for example, have been 7* for months but I still dont have Sun Fac's ship at 7* even though Ive been farming his ship node for months and his ship shards are supplemented by the currency stores.

    Ive never spent my GET currency (thanks to this forums suggestions) and I'm only 50% of the way to one of these 2 capital ships so this is amazing news for me. Anything to speed this up will help.
  • Maybe they should add another capital ship.

    Yeah, we desperately need one.
    I'd say the next one is...empire.
