Bonus Zeta Drop Rate

Compared to the Merrin bonus zetas, the zeta drops from Gungans is terrible. It is very disappointing after spending hunders of dollars, to get drops like this.

I was very hopeful after the previous zeta event, as a LSB account. It helped a lot, and I almost regretted investing in Gungans before the zeta event but it was such a relief to get those zeta mats.

Fast forward to the event for the Gungans, the zeta drops are much worse. Why the nerf ?

Here is some numbers,
For Merrin Zeta drops, day 1, 726 energy(hoarded) + 100x3 refresh + 200x2 refresh = 30 zetas
For Gungan Phalanx, day 1 , 1200 ernergy(hoarded) + 100x3 refresh = 16 zetas

    Depending on whom you have 7 star dictates the rewards

    Kyro drop is also quite bad.

    Btw: 1140 cantina energy spent, 11 zetas acquired - so roughly 1%

    What node did you farm them on? 16 node would be 15%
    We needed Cobb Vanth shards for Krayt Dragon raid, Endor Gear Luke shards for Speeder Bike raid and Anakin Skywalker shards for Battle for Naboo raid?

    Drop rate is a percentage of energy spent independent of node. I can verify for fleet energy the Kyro drop rate is about 1% while you still get Tarpals shards at around a 3% drop rate.

    Maybe there is an actual point to the post but you have just alienated the ftp base in one sentence, probably annoyed the ones that spend because your return may not be as good. That one posts says we spend, we deserve more and in one way i agree if you spend yes you get, but when you spend on odds or rng basis.........

    Mate free to play players play free on the dime of paying players. So I am not sure why they would be bitter for me posting about my experience as a player who pays for the game. Paying gamers keep the game alive.

    Why buy a whole faction just to try farm sum zetas.Why not just buy the zeta packs that go in the store.Surely it would be cheaper.

    Get off your high horse, without free players the game wouldn't be what it is today as well. Online games have been around for over 15 years, you're paying for entertainment and that's it (your account is worth exactly $0)

    So many games died back in the day when all the donor players scared away the free players in the count;ess mafia games. We watched the ecommy crash in every one of those games because the donors kept demanding more at a fast pace. You have to pace everytthing and you need a balance of free players and donor players, plan and simple.

    I was farming Sith Fighter ship (lvl 5, 12 pt node)... but as someone else said. It goes by energy spent, not the energy of the node.

    It's better than the 4 kyros on almost 2k fleet energy i've spent. Or the 1 omega on LS energy for 2k energy. I can't complain about the shard drop rates though, those have been fine. Also, i'm still getting Boss Nass shards despite having him at 7* for a week or two already. TBH, the shard shop currency is more useful than the omegas to me, but the point is everything they release is bugged in some way, or has less than advertised drop rates for important stuff like zetas and kyros.

    The shard drops have been pretty solid, absolutely no complaint there. But as some people have said the additional drops are pretty abysmal. I have similar results to frackme above on omegas, better on kyros. 17 kyros on roughly 3000 total fleet energy and so far 1 Omega on roughly 800 reg energy. The omegas are what I was looking forward to. They could have at least not put them on only hard nodes. But it is what it is.

    There are no advertised drop rates

    Ive got all gungans at relic so bonus drops for me have been a joke…… so unless you are getting shards from this the event in my opinion is a bust….. day 1 last zeta event for 1700 cantina got 40 zetas… this go i spent 700 and got 3

    Good work on complaining about the replacement bonus drops. You managed to stop them from doing them. Now players without 7 star Scout get a bonus drop, while 7 star owners get nothing at all.

    Well done!

    I'm just kidding, I don't think there is any relationship between this kind of thread and the drops on now. But this is an example of how it used to always be. Bonus drops only for shards and nothing for players that already had them. Any amount is better than nothing.

    No, I think you nailed it, lol

    While I agree every release adds more bugs, I have yet to see an officially posted drop rate for this event. If I was CG I would never post the drop rates for these. If the rate isn't provided players have no basis saying it is bugged other than normal whining, and the suckers will get frustrated and spend more.
