What's the point of allies after you clear the campaigns?

I literally haven't used an ally in months. I've accumulated dozens of allies with incredible rosters and I never get to use them.

I realize at some point they'll probably add more, but there needs to be other game modes that utilize an ally. GW seems like a perfect fit, even if that means making it more challenging.

    Oooohwee. I have lower level allies from my guild. They use my toons to help them through cantina nodes or hard missions that they haven't 3 starred yet.

    Or they can request that I put a toon in that they don't have yet to try them out.

    We use it to help out lower players to see if they want to invest in a toon.

    Or palp for those who didn't get him to 7*

    I like knowing I have 50 friends. *shrug*

    But mostly what Jambiiiiiiiii said - of someone in the guild wants to take 7* maxed Palp or Tarkin for a spin....

    That's still a thing? The cool down on rewards doesn't hit you?
  • You could go out for coffee... maybe a donut?

    Perhaps take a cruise together. Just gotta think outta the box.

  • Some people will help out and not care that they don't get any thing in return for helping.

    I kinda wish they'de make better use of it. They could do an event where you only use one of your own characters and 4 allied characters, then everyone you used gets partial rewards.

    That's a pretty good idea, and sounds fun!

    So probably will no happen... Or maybe you'll have to pay for each ally..

    But I like, specially if you need certain characters
  • I always auto the 3 challenges (not gear ones as they don't use allies). I also auto most of my hard light/dark battles daily to get the double ally points. So I use them all the time.

    Challenges are mindless battles that aren't actually a challenge.

    When I started, if you used an ally in campaign mode or in challenge mode, your ally was supposed to get 10 ally points. But that part of the system never worked, so they eventually just cut it out altogether. Now you just get the 20 points for using an ally, but your ally gets nothing.
    If they couldn't make it work before, they probably won't spend the effort to do something like this. I like the idea, though.

    I mean, you can empty your ally roster if you like. I like the people I've collected.

  • i think this is also a good place to pitch the trading characters idea. we should be able to trade characters with our allies.

  • If you are level 80 and don't need allies, drop your high level allies and get some low level allies from this board. People need your help!
