I am so disappointed in the Krayt dragon raid. It goes against every thing good about raids in this game. It’s pretty, and has some good mechanics - but then so did the Malak unlock event.
I have always loved raids. I loved finding teams that did massive damage, tuning my mods and moves, building up teams that could move beyond the individual toons and factions to do massive damage.
I joined discord and the SWGOH community to help my guild finish hAAT, back when the Big Mix Akbar/Asajj/Thrawn squad was cutting edge. I adored JTR in p1 HSTR, and that hilarious p3 JKA squad that let us all stop building greedo crit streaks.
I built out my roster for cPit, from the massively overtuned JMK/CAT (a version for each phase!), to my precisely modded troopers, to my SLKR/Armorer/NS. My top score was over 40m personal damage in a single CPit run, and that was before I even unlocked Jabba.
I was looking forward to the challenge of a new raid where I could choose my own difficulty and press my toons to their limits! Aaaaaand then the raid opened to relic locks and max damage caps.
And…….. I just had to launch a freaking hSTR for my guild. Because our guild rewards will be significantly better than running Krayt.
hSTR. Do you know how demoralizing it is to step back 2 raids and run that thing again, in 2023?
Oh, and to remind all the guildies they need to click in to sit through traya’s death scene for their rewards. Because she was down in 20 minutes. With one player. Because this is a raid we used to run with purple toons.
I hope this is fixable, because it’s a bigger mess than GAC squish. And everyone knows how I feel about that.
