Datacron the answer to having money but no skill.

Not doing well in GAC? Just buy a GL and a level 9 datacron, put it on defense then sit back and relax. Exactly how gaming was always intended.

    Just buy a Galactic Legend, eh? And how, precisely, do you do that? 🤔

    Yeah, OP's premise is silly

    "Not winning GAC? Just buy all toons to r9!"

    I mean, yeah, you can technically do that in this game, but its not realistic for anyone to do that

    Maxing out your toons, gear, mods, datacrons make it easier to win, yeah, its how its always been

    That's how hero collector games work
  • My thoughts here:

    I actually like playing GAC; so games where 1 defensive team is designed to clearly dominate really disappoints me.

    Clearly such a good team should be a key team. However, I'd prefer GAC where full clearing was common.



    I really am not that keen on 'skill' or 'skill points'. For me 'skill' is a guy on a bmx doing an endo backwards down Mount Ventoux, whilst playing a Beethoven symphony flawlessy on a harmonica.

    What we do is show hmmm 'prowess' maybe? Tactical prowess and knowledge, and lots of graft.



    I feel datacrons are making me lazy. When I get depressed, I get lethargic. And I think about doing work on datacrons, I get lethargic and can't be bothered to do anything in the game. They feel time consuming, complicated and with no positive future.

    After they removed using actual gear (aka the leak) from them, I felt quite positive. However, I didn't think of the defensive ramifications. Like the OP, I'm quite stressed with their potential and when that happens I disappear back in my micey hole......................'PLOOP'*.


    *PLOOP noise represents the noise of harvestmouse disappearing back in its hole.

    If you start to connect depression to a mobile game, its probably time to stop

    I have a feeling many people have already or getting ready to stop.

    In the end, its just a **** mobile game and mental health definitely comes up first. But thats just my pount of view

    Connecting depression 'symptoms' to 'actions'.

    I think I have just had about 18 months where I have been the most motivated I have ever been in this game.

    I started the game wanting to make teams I liked. I get a mental block with things I feel are difficult (aka mods) and I generally got myself way behind for the first couple of years. I then started to watch videos and streams, from those I could learn and teach myself how to play.

    I got motivated and went from a 4/12 GA player to a 8-9/12 player. It was a really positive experience seeing how I changed my gaming around.

    However; 3v3 coming back, X3 ships on defence added, a change of guild and the ramifications of datacrons....... it's becoming more work like.

    Don't get me wrong. I'm still motivated and unlike a lot of people I think the game's a lot better than when I first started (towards the end of 2017). Going back to those times.........it was dull as dishwater compared to now!

    Well 3 things here:

    1. I don't want to take over this thread with my mental health. Nor do I feel the need to talk about it (SO WHY BRING IT UP HARVESTMOUSE!!). So, I prefer we didn't.

    2. Like a bad apple you can cut away the bad bits. If part of the game is making me lethargic (aka datacrons) I can cut them out of my life, like a bad apple.

    3. It's all relative. A very bad RL experience, will have a large effect on your mental health. An added feature in a game you play less so........ Though you may recognise similar symptoms?? Dunno, not my area of expertise, just some self diagnostics.

    A million years ago I called this game “Pokemon but with Star Wars” and got absolutely flamed to sh… err… stuff. But those people are gone now and I’m still here having a fun time with my dinky little desire to collect all the fish-headed characters so who was right?

    You can buy GLs, gear, etc and sure win over someone that doesn’t. But if you don’t know how to use them (skill) you will lose to those with similar rosters. Unlimited datacron packs eliminate the need for skill.

    You can have unlimited datacrons but if you don't know how to use them...

    You don't need to know how to use them if you put them on defense.


    Do you need to know how to use anything if you put it on defence?

    Watch a stream, put the best def team or GL down and see if it holds.

    But I don’t know many player who are completely clueless to anything and datacrons still need to be optimised to your team.
