    I'm really hoping tie pilot is a hard hitting DPS toon. Empire needs that.

    Guess this means tie fighter will be first ship we'll receive.

    @CG_Kozispoon thanks for the update info! Just wondering - why introduce GSpy into cantina nodes? We really need toons in GW, arena and cantina shipments. Any particular reasoning behind this? Anyways, thanks again! Looking forward to the new mode!

    It's the only way to keep the whales from rioting. Put every premium character in cantina nodes so F2P players have to make a difficult choice. Very smart on CG's part.
    Sadly this trend makes it pretty obvious that aurodium characters are NOT worth the cost at all. GSpy was literally the last aurodium introduced and he's already being made F2P :confused:

    At least it's GSpy and not SF or Rex...whales would flip.

    They didn't put SF or Rex in cantina because they are both going to GW shipments next week.

    So I get that they add the latest ptp toons to cantina. But at least give is some of the older ptp in GW. Also gear in GW shipments would be fine. Now I have no other choice but to farm grievous.

    we definitely need some more characters in galatic/cantina/arena or at least a way to put the tokens to use.

    Good question...
    Does it matter? As long as it's AI controlled it's fixed.

    Cool updates, can't wait for the tournament.

    I do have a question that I've asked a couple times but never noticed a response. Are you able to elaborate on EA's strategy and price-point related to purchase-only characters? I feel like a change is coming because newer purchase-only characters continue to be released and we have not yet seen a new Chromium or Aurodium character released for a while now. Is something being changed to the release of premium characters? Should we be expecting more characters to be released or is there an upcoming change in strategy from what's been done in the past?

    FYI - The "quality of life" changes are really nice by-the-way, thanks for those too!

    @CG_Kozispoon Thanks for the update! Awesome stuff you guys are rolling out.

    Like @Scorn969 said above, If ST Han is taunting under a Teebo Lead, there is a chance he gains stealth during his turn while taunting. Does gaining stealth remove the taunt, or are active taunters immune from the stealth buff?
    Hiya!
    Both effects will be active, but Taunt will override the Stealth. So technically people can target a target if they have both taunt and stealth up.

    Hey there @Darth_Jay77
    We will continue to release new characters through the Chromium pack where appropriate, but we'll also begin to showcase new characters in other areas of the game, for instance as rewards in the upcoming PVP Squad Tournaments.

    This might be noob question but is it your account level or each individual hero level. I'm a level 80 but don't have any level 80 heroes yet highest is 78?

    There's been a thread in the bugs section for weeks and it was supposedly passed on to the devs but for weeks now our game still freezes after being paused. No word from anyone.

    This is coming from someone who spent money and has a diverse roster. I spent money on my roster and so I perform better than f2p. That is where the p2w comes in the game. Why must we add a large amount of p2w to be better in this tournament refreshing your already larger roster than the f2p teams. We are going to create yet again a larger rift between p2w and f2p, and that is unhealthy for the game. Please, i beg you developers, do not have refreshes on characters in Tournament

    @CG_Kozispoon will the pvp tournament rewards be different for each bracket?

    Eg:

    Lvl 70-79 bracket winner gets X shards of jar jar
    Lvl 80, power level 35-38k winner gets X+1 shards of jar jar
    Lvl 80, power level 39-42k winner gets X+2 shards of jar jar
    Etc...

    Or would the winners of ever bracket be given the same rewards?

    my hope is the former, where higher brackets receive better rewards, since you face stiffer competition. Otherwise you essentially punish players who have progressed farther in the game.

    Thanks for your comments

    They are pitting people with similar max level squads against each other. In other words it'll be whales vs whales. It'll be ugly at that top tier of competition.

    If you are a light spender wait for ships.

    I have to admire your optimism.

    Ships will be the ultimate money machine.

    Does not look like you "have" to participate in the PVP thing. That meaning part of daily achievements, etc. I will pass on the PVP thing. No desire. And that's coming from someone who has 20 plus level 80's, 10 of which are gear 9 or higher. Just no desire in PVP. I say "PASS"
