    I seriously don't get the problem people have with the speedup and sniping in SA. How is sniping at 5 minutes and tying up your Squad and mine so no one can fight fair. If they can auto battle and beat you then they probably should finish higher then you. And remember what ever they do to you, you can also do to them. That's what makes it fair.

    I agree - you don't get it. It has nothing to do with "fair" or "not fair". Of course it's fair, in the sense that anyone and everyone can do it. In terms of the issue, as it applies specifically to squad arena, is that it seems to be a not-so-thinly-veiled attempt to generate more crystal usage. If you know someone can snipe you in under 45 seconds (and no, at 4x, you wouldn't need to auto to snipe in less than 45 seconds - I can do it in 2 minutes on full manual), you will have to refresh with 5 minutes and 30 seconds or less just to prevent being sniped. The point being that people will have to refresh more to "lock out" closer to their payout times. That's the reason for the concern.

    In an arena payout system that is already far too dependent on being available at a set time, narrowing that time window even more - and thus forcing people to refresh more to maintain or attain a rank they could prior to the "improvement" is a little concerning.

    PLEASE NOTE: This issue will NOT improve, even if you are allowed to change your payout time. It will just move the problem.

    The problem is yes you can do this to them and they can do it to you. That might make it fair but it also makes it infuriating. You can get dropped from #1 to #5 in the last minute and lose out on 200 crystals... not because someone was better than you but just because they were more lucky.

    If they rewarded based on highest rank in the day, this problem goes away.

    If 2 people can auto each other into rank #1 easily, who really is rank #1? In my opinion they are both deserving of rank #1 rewards.
  • How about mod shop has 3 extra premium mods at bottom, all at lvl 12 showing all max secondaries.....
  • So when do we actually get the update? Cause I haven't gotten any of these new features yet.
  • Hoping this final part has more to do with ships!!! Love that part ofor the game just wishing I could do more with it

    Thank you very much for these updates, and some of these are things I was personally hoping for. THe update in daily challenge rewards is perhaps the change I am most excited about. :)

    A few things off the top of my head that would be high on my wishlist would be:
    1. mod sets making it easier to switch mods around between characters, and an expansion on categorizing them, so we can sort them by x-stat.
    2. The ability to sim ally points like with sim tickets so we can go through more than 1 at a time, although now that I got rid of a large backlog this isn't as much of an issue to me.
    3. 3. Expansion on guild communication so a welcome message that can be changed, and an in-game mail feature to increase communication for guild members (at least for guild leaders and officers to send a message). Not everyone has line in my guild, which can cause confusion when running raids, and trying to implement a 24hour rule with 0 damage to get everyone on the board. This may be a lot of work though.

    Thank you for all the hard work!
  • Any chance a fix for the emperors demise/grandmasters training bug will ever be addressed? The sooner the better, the events in 12 days and it still shows the wrong one.

    EA why won't you respond to the concerns on your feedback forum? Just a short post of some clarification?

    Nice to see a quality of life update post before a response to the people who have been waiting a week on this matter. Very unprofessional.

    This would be fun, as the day after they implement that, there will come a ton of threads about people suddenly don't have any Sim Tickets

  • When will we be getting update 4?
  • A big Thank You! for all of these improvements. I've suggested quite of few of these in the Feedback channel (as I'm sure many others have as well), so thank you for listening!

    The only one I'm a little leery of is the speed in PvP battles, but I suppose if everyone just sticks it at 4x it's fine, as everyone has an equal opportunity.

    And hopefully this update fixes the "can't select a ship" issue too.

  • Lol watching the videos and these vloggers are puppets. Giving no criticism while normally they give an honest opinion. Anyways the new favorite label is a bit useless as well, you still have to click a filter. Please just make favorites show first when going viewing your characters. So no matter their power level, just show favorites first. Thanks.
  • Here is a suggestion:

    Add a button when gearing a toon that allows you to gear them to the highest amount possible with your current inventory.

    I can usually gear new characters to hear 4 without needing to go collect something and it is a bit tedious to add each one seperately

    It is truly annoying when your payout is not based on your squad or strategy in battle but on when you click a button. There are to many people at my payout all trying to get the same spot and with the randomness of when these people attack its hard to plan some days. Payout should be based on battles, not clicking a button at the right time.

    +1 gear max button.

    Who knows part 4 maybe?

    Still would like a raid damage limiter to stop having to do 24 hour no damage rules...

    Just basically the idea is you set damage to 500k, 1M, 1.5M... for as long as you like and that is the most damage any one person can do until changed.

    You might say what is the difference between 24 hour zero damage rule and that?

    Well many.

    With 24 hour no damage rule you basically sacrifice a troop for no good reason other than to get rewards for everybody.

    With the limiter you still get rewards for everyone by restricting the damage allowed to be added to the overall score. You can play all your attempts each day if you like and even test solo the raid, but at the end of your turn's' only the damage limit max will be added to the guild cumulative score.

    I think it can be a useful tool.

    Last Quality of Life Update feature is good to go! @EA_Jesse is drafting up the post as we speak
    Sending quick typey vibes
    Thank you for your patience 8D Forum Guidelines
  • Part 4 has to be the one Im most excited for...
    This is a signature.

    It's time for the last part of our Quality of Life Update preview posts!
    • Galactic War:
      • Galactic War Rewards now scale as the player levels up
    • Shipments
      • All Shipments/Feature Stores can now be accessed from each other allowing easy navigation between them. For example when making purchases after timers have reset.
      • The Shipments Daily Activity will now increment from purchasing from either Shipments or any of the feature stores.
    • Teebo Bug Fixed: Taunt and Stealth effects no longer completely overwrite one another or themselves.
      • If a unit has multiple Taunt effects or multiple Stealth effects, their durations will be tracked individually, rather than the newer buff overwriting the older one.
      • If a unit has both Taunt and Stealth at the same time, Taunt takes precedence (i.e., enemies will be forced to target them), but the unit will still count as both Taunting and Stealthed for the purposes of triggering other effects and abilities.

    To see these new features in action be sure to check out this video from AhnaldT101:



    We're aiming to have this Quality of Life update release next week! We'll post again with the exact day once it has officially been locked in.

  • ZOMG!!! TEEBO BUG FIXED?!?!? But....but....it's not August yet! ;)

    JK - Great stuff - especially the bug fix and rescaling GW and challenge rewards.

  • sweet. I look forward to next week
  • Yeesssssssss Teebo is fixed. Can't wait to see it in action and not having to see the cooldown of 4 when he is out of stealth
  • 1) there was and there is no time out team. It was just low firepower or weak mods.
    2) it won't solve your problem. Faster battle = faster timer. If you can't beat those teams the only thing will change you will fail 4 times faster.
    Finally a way to beat those **** gk bariss time out teams. Thanks for the speed up option

    Faster battle =/= faster timer. Watch the video. You get 5 minutes still.
  • Teebo/buff bug was a difficult fix until it would have affected pack sales of a new character? And since when was a bug fix, QoL?

    Does this mean we have to give them Chewie shards?
