It's starting to get crowded here
, which is a good thing. However it comes with more and more people speaking up about some imbalance and most commonly, as if to follow the herd: "EA sucks, IAPs to suck us dry!"
We have somehow forgotten, how much worse it was for Clash of clans, summoners wars etc.
Oh come on, less speculating and enjoy the game!
So yes, maybe some guys spent money and got better characters which you might find 'OP' at your levels (20s-40s).
Slowly when you reach level 60 caps, you will start noticing who the real powerful characters are, when their skills/leader/better gear choices make them REALLY strong. And learn to use what you have on hand, to make the most competitive team.It's a whole different world at level 60
By level 60, you will realize which characters are 'farmable' and which are just not worth the time unless you can buy so many packs, get so many dupes and therefore shards, to get them to 7*.
Soft Launch pvp brackets (all level 60s, 5-7*, purple geared characters), still uses starter/non-paid units. Not because they do not have other better characters, but these are the ones easily 7*, all-rounders or really great at doing a particular role. Or simply, their stats rocks.Don't be disappointed if you aren't a big spender, I ain't one too and I'm able to rank top10 in arena
Did you know you can draw up to 4* characters from bronze draws (the free/250FP ones)? I've played for 2 months+, and I've gotten from bronze draw:
- 4* Bounty Hunter,
- 3* Plo Koon,
- 3* hoth rebel,
- 3* hoth rebel scout,
- 2* Princess Leia
- and a whole lot of other 2*/1* and shards.
That saying... I don't like any of these guys, except for bounty hunter whom I used for Galactic War as 2nd team, so I didn't put most of them to use haha. But the point is, Capital Games is kind of generous to an extent.So how much have I spent and how far I've achieved?
I've been 'camping' for this game since news of it came out somewhere in August. When they soft launched it, I was luckily part of the chosen countries, specifically Singapore. That was somewhere around early or mid September. And I've been in it till now.I've spent on:
- Dark side pack: For dooku
- 1st Chronium pack x10: Got 4* Darth Sidious from it (Packs where in 10s back then)
- 2nd Chronium pack x10: Got 3* Darth Maul from it (which stayed level 1, 3* till today)
- That's all for paid items, till now. All further purchases of packs were from crystal rewards
6 + 26 + 26 = SG$ 58Where am I now?
Ending arena rankings daily at least, in the top10, usually in the top 3 places. Here's an image of where I am now, 6 hours after rewards (was 3rd when rewards were sent)What I have now:
A tip for new players. Many games will soft launch and you can side load the file on Android. Although not available on the locked down official Google Play store, they are out there. It's how I'm an American who got in on the game early.
And FYI I will be updating the FAQ later on today to answer some of the questions that keep getting asked.
This is counterproductive in a number of ways mostly for EA. On one hand it's great that they allow you to most freely rank up the stock characters, but the thing that will keep me coming back the most is being able to rank up your favorites, not "Resistance Trooper"
Beta = soft launch?
Global = hard launch?
I've seen soft launch mentioned several times and now in contradictory manners including that the game was soft launched recently. An article mentioned that the game has been in beta for 6 months.
@dalvian , the terms soft launch and closed beta are often used interchangeably when discussing limited release mobile software.
This game was launched September 4th in a couple of places like Malaysia, then expanded to Australia and I believe Russia. Then a few days ago it was widely released to everyone on the Google Play store. Each nation has its own Play store BTW. Android can be altered to think its in whatever nation you wish. This is not the place to have that conversation though.
I have to admit based on my experiences so far this game does a famous job of providing new features as you progress and the value of that first dooku deal is tremendous. I highly recommend it to every last player considering it. If you can only ever make one low purchase, just do it. It's much better to have dooku in your library when you finally face him in the game than not.
Kudos to the developers so far! I'm hooked.
But to field a team like that (all units have health bars like tanks, they can counter-attack forever). You need to spend lots, to get them all to 6/7*.
After doing so, you will win offense battles 99% of the time, and defense battles ~60% of the time.
(This is the only pvp setup, I can only hope to defeat ~30% of the time)
Does paying help? Definitely yes.
Does paying guarantee you win? Not exactly, but your teams are definitely stronger
Does F2P stand a chance against them? Offensive yes, you still can defeat them (at least I can )
I've no idea if it still applies since the global launch update, but only 2 days ago, I managed to draw out 2* Ahsoka. The idea is, the drop rates from bronzium is actually decent.
I'll bet you a nickel he shows up in a $50 pack within the next three months.
On rank 19 is a player with a 7*Kit Fisto.How much have he spend on chrono packs?^^
I got a 4* Boba 2 days ago from bronze pack.
He has not much HP for a Tank.
Is he worth upgrading?I see him in your roster.
No offense but im gonna have to see this to believe it. It clearly says it only drops 1-2* so ill side with it til I get visual confirmation. If its giving 4* its a bug.
Well I'm not to judge your opinion of it. But both players before global, right now during global, and many others have managed to get their 3/4* from data packs. Although at a very very low probability, I wish to show that the possibility exists.
Bug in the text, or bug in the card rolls, I have no idea, and I'm sure no one does except the developers themselves. But if anything, EA Jesse has read this thread and haven't brought up any issue about it.
It benefits us anyway, and it exists right now. So I hope all the best of luck to your draws too!
Fair enough. I'm only considering one scenario, even if it's a reach. That you may have been mistaken and thought you got a 4* but it was from a regular chrom pack. Then people here see that and want to live vicariously so they SAY they got one as well to look cool. Now there's multiple people saying this so others want to join the fun and so they claim they got it as well. That's just human nature and the internet coming together gloriously.
Well if even our admin here got it, the truth has been spoken! Of cos there can be unlimited conspiracy theories we can all come up with. But lets just have a little faith in the world shall we? Hahaha
The leveling up system is also better in Summoners war. Much easier to make a 6* in SW than a 7* in this game.
I really enjoy this game, but a week in and I really see some issues. The shop prices besides the count package are overpriced. As mentioned before, energy is too hard to come by. Level up a units stars is quite arduous. The PvP system needs to be completely redone. Only 5 times a day unless you pay? That's absurd. The shipment should refresh every hour. There are many more
Great game to start, but some major things that can limit its potential as other players come to these conclusions. First and foremost, the energy system needs to be rethought.
