Zetas need to be more accessible

Prev1
Simply put if CG wants to make more money give us a more consistent way to buy them. You’re constantly adding new characters and Newer players will never catch up. Pointless to keep farming a team if it takes 3-4 months to just put zetas on a team So i stop farming/spending. If you want to maintain new players give us a chance to catch up. I’ve obtained every zeta possible and no where close. So I’m done spending grinding for a few months

    I **think** that they're saying that they're earning all the mats it's possible to gain in the game (AB's, fleet, whatever) and that they're still way behind on zetas.

    I think.

    It's the only interpretation I can come up with that is consistent with their expressed thesis anyway.
  • If you’re applying zetas on every new character that gets introduced, of course you’d be running out of materials…

    There’s your issue. You’re putting zetas on every new player. I hate to say it but it’s a resource management game. Prioritize who you put zetas on. We get a healthy flow of them through plenty of means. You’re not supposed to be able to put every zeta on every character.
  • I think more options of buying zeta mats, will be bad for the balance of the game. If a big spender can buy the character, gear and the required zeta, there is no way a F2P, who start at the same time can compete.

    This is how many zeta mats I’ve stored up on my 7m account. I’m not intentionally hoarding them, and I don’t see a reason to throw them on every new character that gets introduced. I don’t buy the materials in the fleet shop anymore either, since I’d rather take shard shop currency.

    Certainly not during the first few years.
    When you get your 7th year anniversary of playing the game, on the other hand, you should be just about there. I know for a fact, as I am about 500 zeta mats away from doing every single activated toon in the game and other 500 mats away from the un-activated ones.

    You should get more GLs

    Thousands and thousands of GP sitting there not being fulfilled. If all 50 members of your guild did the same, how many TB stars could you be missing out on?

    If you keep doing the same, eventually, you will have more zeta mats then zeta abilities to spend them on. Once you reach that point, what then? Still not going to do them?

    I will say this, this is YOUR account, not mine. How you choose to spend or not spend is 100% your choice.
  • I’m working on unlocking SEE, then GI and Jabba. Even after all that I still probably will have 4-500.

    I personally see no reason to place zetas on all my characters who don’t have them yet if I’m not going to actually use them.
  • SWGOH say I have 219 zetas placed. I have 490-ish zeta mats.

    I don't see anything that needs a zeta. I mean, maybe I could run around and place 10 zetas that I don't need, but I'd still only gain 20k gp. The guild would gain 1M gp through that, assuming everyone else has as large a cache of mats and as many unloved zeta abilities.

    I mean, it's 1M? That's not nothing but... it's not really a ton, either. I'll just keep dropping them only on my relic toons, thanks.

    I agree with that part, they don't really add enough GP to matter.

    I'm at 530 mats after starting to stock back up from unlocking my 7th GL.

    If you were to place zetas on crew members, you will get more GP than on regular toons. Also, the zetas will make the ships a tiny bit better.

    You make me want to double check, but I think I have zeta'd all my crew members except a couple of Phoenix zetas, for exactly the reasons you describe.
  • Some materials are bottlenecks at different points in the game, omegas & zetas are scarce in the beginning. Currently omicrons are scarce for end game users but they will eventually be in abundance too, I don’t see CG being able to keep up adding new omicron ability kits with the influx of mats we get.

    My team is 2 years old i have see and jmk. Have the teams that coincide with the relics i have from those grinds. About to unlock LV and maul next month and about 150 zetas short. Cg needs to stop the robbery of its players and Set a 40 zetas for $50 datapack card. So we stop getting 10 or 15 for $50 dollars. Feel robbed makes me want to put this game on blast on social media for the SCAM. Really surprised Disney allows this sounds like a good News story or Netflix documentary.
  • You don’t have to pay anything. I agree the cost of anything in this game is exorbitant but that’s why you should stay f2p. If you don’t have the patience to be f2p this is not the game for you.
  • If you want to maintain new players give us a chance to catch up.
    Actually...this is plain wrong. Freemium Games will only survive if the majority of the players CANNOT catch up. I played a few games where it was "possible" to reach the top (or close enough) in some time and most players would leave the game once there...or at least play a lot less...there is simply nothing more to wish/get...so they would not play until some new content came up, then they would get it and disappear again...
    I actually am on the same boat...i will NEVER reach the top as the "goalposts" are mving faster than i am...BUT i am pretty sure that early in the game i was catching up...and the "goalposts" were accelerated...:)
    IT IS AS IT IS...most players will never get to the top, becuase a few (the very dedicated or those inveting a lot) will get there. The top "speed" actually depends on the players...

    It's neither robbery nor scam if you know what you're buying. If you don't think it's a good value then don't buy it, problem solved.

  • I feel like most people would avoid buying things they consider scams.

    Thanks
  • I don't envy new/newer players. They find themselves between a ton of great teams and characters that all require lots of zetas, and even if the zeta income is fairly fast these days, it's still not enough considering how many things need to be built. I'm a launch player so I have no problem with zetas at all, even as a f2p, because I've always been (somewhat) able to keep up with the new releases. I'm still lacking a good chunk of teams though compared to the big guys at 10M+ (I'm only at 8.2M myself), but I have a lot of the important stuff done. Newer players don't have that "privilege", so I can definitely see it being very frustrating for those people. Newer players that are in my guild also have this problem. I know that you're not supposed to have everything, but I feel like CG should do something small like putting one more zeta mat into the rewards of the fleet challenges for example. A few more mats per week certainly wouldn't hurt the economy and would help newer players catch up a bit more.
