Biggest regret in game?

I have two actually - 1 is not farming Rey earlier, she is still sitting at 4* for me and I see a loooong grind ahead even with Guild shards.

The biggest one I just did and it is seriously bumming me out! I got a $50 iTunes gift card from work, had a big month. I bought the May the 4th pack and wanted to see what the Chromiums were all about as I was F2P besides Ewoks (see where this is going???) and I get a whole bunch of characters that I can never ever level up!!!

I got some cool ones - I now have a 3* Sun Fac, 4* Aayla and a 4* Leia. None of which I can use at those levels. Got a 2* Fisto too along with a bunch of Maul shards but no Maul. Oh - got Cad Bane since I had a bunch of shards from the monthly log in. Again, cant use him.

I could have been stocked with crystals for a long time but no... I was stupid (they censor 5tupid?). I was hoping for Rey or at least somebody I could farm.

The best/worst part which is one reason I did it? My kids play this game and they bought a single Chromium with the 500 crystal bonus. They got a full 4* Old Ben!! I would LOVE him on my team and I can farm him afterwards.

Oh well - $50 gone in no time flat with really nothing at all to show for it.

    Ditto.
    It's ran on a crack dealer business plan. Give em a taste for free & after they're in to it... go after the wallets.

    Magma trooper ain't got nothing on this XD

    A picture is worth 1000 words. Sad thing is I actually will get him to gear 9 which requires a stun gun. Just because I can. Hells, Ive wasted so many resources on him getting him to 7*, max lvl and max abilities, I may as well finish him off and hold him as a trophy.

    1. Ever buying a chromium
    2. Putting resources into every character I got early on
    3. Ignoring gear early on since I didn't know its signficance

    Farming Eeth Koth and Mace Windu to get Yoda. First two are useless garbage characters and Yoda is meh at this point.

    1. Buying any Chromiums
    2. Not using Cantina refreshes early-game
    3. Not focusing on a synergized team early enough (still not done with one, ugh)

    @Aero Someone that understands me :')

    He is at least useful to survive 2 hits from the rancor as part of my latter teams =P.

    @Toukai Except he is not a tank, he has incredibly low hp and protection. 11624 hp and 5278 protection atm. he is incredibly weak even on a full empire team, but ah well. He is shiny.

    My empire characters are basically the reason I do 1/3 of my guildmates damage in raids and get much much lower rewards, no levelled rey, gs, phasma, poggle etc =(

    Would also be nice if the upcoming Yoda event is impossible for level 70 characters. That would make me uninstall. Because Mace Windu and Eeth are not getting one level over 70!

    @Akster

    Ok I'm a bit behind on you. I'm level 77 as well but haven't taken him there yet,

    csMWiCz.jpg

    I want to start a thread for "Characters you've invested way too much in" but I'm waiting for gear 9. I think I may put him in my arena team for fun as well :smiley: I have

    77 Rex gear 9, 7 star
    77 Fives, gear 9, 7 star
    77 Clone Sarge gear 9, 7 star
    77 Plo Koon gear 9, 7 star
    77 RG, gear 8, 5 star

    But Stormtrooper more closely resembles clones and still taunts.

    So you're planning an Empire team? I have all 7 of them very far along, can't wait! Veers is almost at 6*

    That's an easy question, not even close.
    Not pre-crafting. I could have made 4 or 5 Droid Callers.
    I even read the boards THE WHOLE DAY of the update, but it didn't sink in what was actually happening.
    Was really close to quitting when I found out my error.

    Since you asked, I shall show you the full extent of my waste of money and therefore lack of any raid damage!! Even as a throwaway galactic war team it struggles to take out even one character, that's how bad they are =P

    He is incredibly squishy and I dies straight away to the rancors AoE I think, I may be remembering wrong but either way dies too fast. His basic attack crits for around 5k so his damage is 'ok', assuming all your empire allies are alive. Never decided to use his intimidate to try and offence down the rancor, on the low chance of it actually hitting, my team will be wiped out too quickly anyway.
    Also since leader abilities are broken, all empire characters are abysmally slow and will die before they get many hits off and tarkin can not increase it with his leader.

    Out of all the empire characters, Tarkin is the only one that seems to have 'potential', but since all the rest of the empire are terrible except for maybe vader, it does not help much.
