    All I can say is there had better be some major changes to correct all their recent mistakes because I've been on autopilot for the last couple of months and unless there are significant changes this really is it for me and I'm sure many others too. This 'game' is painful and if it continues on this path it'll only get worse.

    Agreed.

    Outside of the gear economy changes, there needs to be lots of movement on making the TW matchmaking more fair, making conquest far less of a grind and time sink, the QoL improvements we were promised last year in the “early part of 2021”, etc etc.

    I mean there are so many bugs and fixes that are easy layups for them, I can’t understand why they don’t do it. One of which is the devour bug for CPit where you have to send in a sacrifice in P2 and P3 to actually reset the ability so it starts on cool down as it’s supposed to do. It fixes an inconvenience for us and is easy points. I’m curious how the first RA will be without Marky Mark as the senior producer

    Guessing it should drop sometime this week and my guess is that we get the following info

    I'd expect we get our new conquest toon reveal (dad bod Boba)

    Challenge rancor tier 2

    Hints to next era of GLs

    Seems like a safe bet with the show around the corner, but still seems a little early, I mean he had his reveal in Mando, but they might wait for his first season to run before he makes it in.

    We already heard that they are not likely to be doing anything with raids.

    Next era of stuff, maybe, and if so, maybe GLs. But I see them having a short break with all the talk about gear economy upgrades. Not to mention they are likely to let r9 marinade before we see any reqs for that.

    Perhaps they’re planning to reveal a Conquest character Boba to be the buddy for a (wait for it..) GL Boba Fett.

    But we will see when they finally release the RA (which is hopefully better than the last one).
    One may learn a great deal about a people by the stories they tell of others.

    Thank you for evaluating. Your feedback has been noted.

    Maybe we have enough galactic legends and they introduce the first galactic villain.
  • hope they make it easier to get a toon to g12/13.

    If they didn't open that door with Lord Vader, I think it's safe to say they are not going to make that change.
  • I think that they can start paving the way for the next GLs by releasing marquees that are related to the next GLs, but no requirements will be revealed until roughly Feb/Mar 2022.

    They already started paving the way for the next GLs... It's called Relic 9 😎

  • GL Boba riding a Rancor would be pretty epic. Watch that Rancor turn LV into jerky.

    Anything less now will be a disappointment. Hopefully the gear improvements make up for it, but I won't be holding my breath.

    They also said, they weren't doing anything with TW a couple months before they changed it pretty substantially.

    If they put out a battle pass and keep conquest as is, then that’ll be it for me. I will quit the game. Monetizing conquest even more than they already have without massive changes to make it less of a grind will just be too much.

    Maybe I'm too optimistic, but I don't think it will be left as it is now. The first iteration was a bit too easy and then they obviously overcorrected, so I expect it to ease up a bit. That said, the battle pass sucks either way, unless it is something like the daily crystal pass except tied to Conquest. And they are known to be very careful when making changes that would benefit us, so it will probably ease up only a very tiny bit.

    It will be different.

    There are some interesting discussions around the sub, and why it went away. It would be interesting to see if that idea resurfaces.

    Step 1 - Increase the Conquest grind to the point players are frustrated and hate it
    Step 2 - Offer a paid way to relieve the frustration (Conquest Battle Pass)
    Result - A player earns comparable rewards but NOW has to pay for them

    If it happens this way then the model is clearly to create frustration and offer paid solutions to circumvent the frustration. There is obviously a much better method for this type of thing but the fact this is the chosen route should tell you everything you need to know.

    From my understanding the BP offeres no changes to or additional feats.

    I have never seen a BP that wasnt additional rewards to a system, not the only way to get them.

    But a battle pass is basically a bunch of feats collected and organized into tiers for rewards, right?
