    Exciting! Looking forward to the new characters and game content! 🤓❤️
  • I'm simultaneously pleased and not by the reqs - on one hand it hinders PVE cheating to unlock him (requiring at least G12 means sizeable investment), but on the other there is a certain joy (despair, maybe, but satisfaction when it's done) in min-maxing reqs so as to just squeeze through, as opposed to breezing through. With repeat tiers (GL farms) then easier is better, but if it's a tier you only need to complete once then a bit of difficulty is good. All together, though, if G12 is par for unlock then it seems as though it will be a moderate level event which doesn't require immense investment, which I think will make people happy (or less disappointed if he's not as good as expected or in the way expected (Grand Inquisitor)).

    Saw Guerrera finally joining the holotables but wasn’t expecting him to show up as part of the FO marquees
  • Will Merrin be an unaligned force user?

    I would have preferred Taron Malicos, or Cal’s master.
  • The old style legendary events were both fun and a tremendous headache. The 3p0 event took a few days to line up the perfect golden moment and get past the pre-loaded TM with a couple Ewoks alive. It’s something I’ll always remember. Does anyone remember anything about a GL battle except for maybe faint-strike-parry-strike? Months of gearing toons just to do a battle over and over and over again doesn’t excite me at all.

    Event Unlock Minimum Requirements:
    Cal Kestis (7*, Gear Tier XII)
    Cere Junda (7*, Gear Tier XII)
    Merrin (7*, Gear Tier XII)
    Tarfful (7*, Gear Tier XII)
    Saw Gerrera (7*, Gear Tier XII)

    The event will only be playable for a limited time, and will not be available in Journey Guide permanently (for now).

    =============

    So, to unlock the events, one has to bring those characters to 7* ($300 each), otherwise he will not be able to play those limited time events?
  • It says R6 Cal and Cere are required to participate in the bonus zone, but it also states previously that the zone requires R7 toons. Which one is it?

    So glad that the requirements are G12 and not R5. It will still be necessary to get them higher for ROTE anyway, but at least the event itself won't require panic relics.

    R6 Cal and Cere are needed for the unlock mission, R7 in the zone itself.

    Limited events return a few-ish months later and join the journey guide one year after their release. Usually.

    Can't wait for all the people to have them at G12 and they are on the forum complaining about how they cant pass the battles.
    Forget the gear crunch, why can't we sim the Sith raid yet?

    Of course, CG tuning the difficulty way above the minimum requirements is a real possibility...
  • Some people said that the Event would be permanent, but that's not the case here...

    Did the Road Ahead ever say that the Event would be permanent? Either way, glad it's Gear Level 12 and not relics. The grind will still be painful, but definitely better than trying to get Gear Level 13 stuff.
    Hello there.

    You've learned a valuable lesson, most people here have no clue what they're talking about
    The CGDF requests that CG takes away everyone's Extra Life Charity Event rewards. We don't deserve them. https://discord.gg/AmStGTH

    They are technically right, it will become permanent eventually. And isn't technically right your favorite kind of right?

    It's been a struggle trying to break a 6 year habit and consistently switch to using the term "operations" instead of "platoons" for myself, my fellow officers and all our guild members.

    So you can imagine how seeing the phrase "Platoons in Bonus Zones" in an official dev announcement can kind of make me (and I'm sure others) feel like kind of a fool.

    I won 1087-912. Was a close one, one failed battle on his front wall and I would have lost. @LordDirt Good game bud. Told you it would be an interesting one.

  • I'm looking forward to Jedi: Fallen Order and Jedi: Survivor characters coming along soon. I just feel like a few might be missing...
    I threw together a Purge Trooper squad idea and posted it here https://forums.galaxy-of-heroes.starwars.ea.com/discussion/262438/purge-trooper-squad-concept-and-kit#latest
    And I also am working on kit concepts for Jaro Tapal, Taron Malicos, a couple Night Brothers, etc. Just cuz I can and just cuz I'm a big fan of the Jedi: Fallen Order game lol.
