    Dear Diary, today I got lucky and pulled a full character from bronzium! Biggs Darklighter glowed on the holotable, he's a 2* hero at unlock. I maxed IG88 abilities excluding the leader skill. I used half of my credits to level Barriss up to level 70. I used GG borrowed from an ally for the first time- his animations were so flashy and glowing, made me want to get one myself but it would be next year for a usable GG if I grinded the shards exclusively for that character.

    Today's login rewards is 3 training droids.

    Started the day with a battle against a team of Dooku (leader), Daka, Kylo, Lumi, Sid.

    Today's newbie lesson- Sidious. Someone asked why he dodged too much and why he's so popular:

    I just refreshed my opponents in the Arena multiple times and 16 of the first 19 that came up (I made sure I didn't count dupes) had Dodge Sidious on their team. I then did a complete Galactic War and I think out of all the battles, only one team didn't have Dodge Sidious on it.
    Is there something wrong with the balance of characters when such an overwhelming percentage of people are all using the same character?

    His team:

    In GW I run:

    Luminara (leader)
    Kit Fisto
    Obi-Wan or JC
    Qui-Gon
    Barriss

    In the arena I run:
    Qui-Gon (leader)
    Kit Fisto
    Obi-Wan
    Barriss
    Luminara

    The reason he dodge so much is because of an innate ability to dodge Jedi heroes. His skill 'Sadistic Glee' gives evasion against Jedi attacks.

    He's so popular because he's very easy to farm in arena shipments. One of the best character to farm from there so naturally many people will have him in the team.

    Have you seen this thread on GW? https://forums.galaxy-of-heroes.starwars.ea.com/discussion/8977/galactic-war-guide-team-instinct

    I switched to this strategy and am able to complete GW 99% of the time (my Barriss is 4* Gear 6, and I only spent purple mats to get leader ability to 6). With this strategy, you make her the leader and keep JC in at all times. I run:

    Barriss (L)
    Lumi
    JC
    GS
    86

    Hope that helps!

    @Merr1dew

    I did see that thread when it was first posted. I have a 7* Barriss in main and a 6* Barriss in alt. I still haven't completed a single GW for two to three weeks now. There now has been two patches addressing the GW difficulty. I do use her as leader when I need massive healing. I usually put Barriss (leader), JC, Lumi, Poe, and whoever I need healed. Thanks for the tip about the thread. Overall my starting nodes has decreased in difficulty. Usually there are fully maxed gear/abilities level 70 teams as soon as node 2 but now they appear later.

    The most recent patch was on 23/3/16 with Jesse posting:

    Greetings,

    Here is the short update note for today.

    Additional matchmaking improvements have been made to Galactic War.

    Dear Diary, I've got so lucky today and pulled Ahsoka through a bronzium data card!! As I already have her unlocked I received 15 shards instead. I checked my phone battery usage and I was surprised to see Heroes using 81% of battery! Phones nowadays are more used as gaming devices than they are for communication.

    Today's login rewards is 375 ally points.

    Today's newbie lesson is about complaints.

    @VIII posted:

    Instead of complaining or screaming out nerf, why don't you actually play the game?

    This game is not about having your favourite heroes in one team.

    It's about strategy.

    Build a descent roster,

    Mix up your heroes,

    And build the best counter team to any team you face.

    It's not that hard.

    (Their is more than enough characters to build a good team, stop crying because you think 1 hero is too strong, understand each character and work against them)

    @Fantazy replied:

    First of all, most people don't realize how often they complain because it has become a habit and, like all habits, it tends to be so familiar that it becomes invisible. Secondly, most people feel that it's a good conversation starter because it's easier to find common ground by complaining. Lastly, people complain because they want validation for their beliefs.

    Why do we complain?

    My answer:

    Complainers gonna complain.

    Haters gonna hate.

    Just shake it off.

    Dear Diary, I've got enough shards to activate the new unit, Magmatrooper! I farmed enough shards to five star Lumi and Ahsoka. There was a game update today and a new unit became available- Chief Chirpa, the Chief of Ewoks. Ahsoka got a re-work and now she's viable. There were also a few bug fixes and character description updates. Training droids were removed from shipments and put in a data card for bulk buys.

    Today's login rewards is four magmatrooper shards.

    Hey @Bryan1986 it's going well thank you for asking!! Been so busy lately, Easter and all! Yea it's been quiet here for days as I haven't had much free time to browse through, write, and reply to all those forum threads. I've been doing much better in my main than my alt now. Usually I drop to near 20 there but I've changed my team composition and it seems to be holding better. In my alt I have progressed slowly, QGJ still 6* with 0/100, Lumi is at 5*, JC at 6*, Mace at 6*, Ahsoka at 5*, and Yoda at 5*. RG still at 4* so he's not viable.

    Finally I got Poe to 7*!! He's a bit stronger now and can stay alive longer. How do you monitor in game regularly? ;)

    My Ewok team is so far from being ready T_T. CC is at 0/50, EE at 24/25, Teebo at 3*, and ES at 2*. I got a free 2* Lando from the twitter promo. I'm about 2 weeks behind in writing updates here and I'm thinking of doing short updates daily in the future. So on some days long and others short.

    I have about 1/3 of all available characters now and it's hard to adapt to the new metas as most of those characters are 2-4*. They won't be any use at those low stars. Hope droid teams get a buff soon!

    @Reyia Hey Reyia! Didn't even know you had this diary! It's been a fun read, I'll keep dropping by for future updates :)

    Are you hoarding materials and resources in anticipation of the level cap raise or are you farming as usual on both accounts? Oh, btw I'd like to add your alt account as ally to my main account for borrowing your HK. I love using droids in challenges and DS missions :)

    Peace out!

    @Zoggan Hey Zoggan! Yes I have started writing this just over a month ago to keep track of a brand new alternate account. So far doing well but feeling restricted as I only have one single main team and the meta keep changing. Sure I will continue to write when I have some available time. :)

    I'm still proceeding as normal but I think I will save for one day, which is on Wednesday before the level increase hit on Thursday.

    Sure I'll add you on my alt so that you can use droids. They are all maxed geared with maxed abilities except leadership ones which I don't use such as IG88 leader ability.

    Take care, peace!

    @reyia. I just watch your position. Make sure you are still climbing daily and staying on top. Could be creepy...probably is creepy. Ya know, stalking your droids and all. Our server is growing more and more, but the poor fellas are having a hard time pinning us down. :smile:

    @Bryan1986 Haha you are so creepy, stalking my poor droids who get bullied every day by QGJ and Dooku teams! :( Our server has grown so much lately with many new faces in the top 100. :) I'm glad, as it brings variety to the teams we face daily although there ain't too many variations as there are only limited number of viable teams to stay in the top. Hopefully the meta will change once again and we will see diverse teams again. Can't wait for level 80 to hit this Thursday! Although I'm not prepared for it, the credit crunch is so real. :|

    @Bryan1986 There are so many level 71 in our shard now! There are over a dozen in the top 50. And Skywalkers is the highest amongst all- at level 72. How many refreshes do you do per day? I do the 200 ones now. Usually I only do 100 crystal refreshes. Finally I got my Poggle to 7*!! Yoda event was a big surprise to me as I didn't expect the event to return so soon... so I wasn't prepared and now I'm in a mad rush to get my fifth Jedi to 6*! It's a competition between Lumi and Ahsoka to see who can reach 6* first!

    Dear Diary, the new update went live today and a few new features were added. Droids fight back became available for android users only. Not fair for iOS users. :( A new Sullust environment was added. Aurodium packs containing Rex were removed from sale. New characters were added to cantina nodes- Chief Chirpa and Old Ben. Ahsoka was buffed and that made her viable. I unlocked Yoda today, yay!!!

    Today's login rewards is 40k credits.

    On many long journeys have I gone. And waited, too, for others to return from journeys of their own. Some return; some are broken; some come back so different only their names remain. Yoda travelling through galaxies to appear in my character list.

    @BrobiWanKenobi posted something about farming and playing the characters you want.

    It seems like the first step for a large portion of the players complaining about Dooku/GS/etc being OP is to turn around and start farming those exact characters as fast as they can, in the hope of becoming more "competitive". That's almost as irritating as your complaining in the first place - by doing so you're selling out strategically and adding even more blandness and imbalance to the meta, perpetuating the cycle of complaining (and increasing the likelihood of the devs to nerf characters unnecessarily).

    There are a definitely a few characters I find annoying as **** to play against. I've refused to farm Dooku, Daka, GS and others because their mechanics irritate me (they are not OP) and I'd rather find another way to beat them than fighting fire with fire. I have nothing against people who've farmed those or any characters.

    My problem is with people who complain about a character and then try to exploit the character to beat others.

    My encouragement:

    1. Play with integrity
    - be the change you want to see: if you are challenged/irritated by a character, don't go out and farm them as a first reaction

    2. Choose your own path
    - the meta is constantly changing and the best toons today could be irrelevant tomorrow

    3. Always be farming at least 1 toon purely for fun
    - it's much more rewarding in the long run

    @RJ__Brando made use of Chirpa in his Ewok's team. So nice to see them tear down meta teams!

    Dear Diary, the new update went live today and a few new features were added. Droids fight back became available for android users only. Not fair for iOS users. :( A new Sullust environment was added. Aurodium packs containing Rex were removed from sale. New characters were added to cantina nodes- Chief Chirpa and Old Ben. Ahsoka was buffed and that made her viable. I unlocked Yoda today, yay!!!

    Today's login rewards is 40k credits.

    @Reyia and @Bryan1986 , hope you guys have seen my at the leaderboards. Reyia, I'm sorry but I had to take down your team twice to reach the top of the ladder. Your droids fought well, but they were no match to my Yoda's countless attacks! Today I finally got to #1 in time for the rewards, so I'm pretty happy about that and I hope to be able to do it more often! Although shortly after my rewards came @Bryan1986 took me down, haha. But yeah, really nice to finally be up there with you guys <3. I'm just sad I didn't beat Reyia for the #1 spot :p.

    Reyia, hope all is well with you. Are you looking forward to the rebalance tomorrow? I have a complete fully max'ed First Order team at level 76. Can't wait to try it. With the new Advantage I should see more crits than a droid team. Take care!

    Glad to see you up there in rank with us. What is your payout time? Feel free to msg me anytime you would like if I can help you out. Glad to be able to chat amoung the good members in our server. Haven't heard from Reyia in a while but I know she is still killing it. If I see you in top ranks, I will make it a point to attack around you so I don't knock you back. (Unless it is payout time for me. :smile: ) Our server is getting tougher and tougher man.
