Just wanted to give a heads up that we will be adding that mysterious Shard Shop exclusive character later this month. I especially wanted to let those of you know who may have a large stockpile of extra shards. It wouldn't be cool if you spent all of your currency and then find out that there is a new character just a few weeks later after you've spent everything.
So, consider yourselves informed!

Too bad for everyone else who doesn't read the forum.
I hate to sound like a Vogon, but "if you can't be bothered to take an interest in local affairs, that's your own lookout...apathetic bloody planet...."
Oh and thanks!
That's awesome and I can't wait. I have to agree though though that if you're really into this game and want to stay updated, you should be part of the forums.
Is there a expected release date for the February update? I know a lot of people, including myself, are eagerly awaiting a clue.
Also, is there any information of the exchange rates in the shard shop? Should I accumulate more shards or try to spend currency on starring up lower characters?
I know you want it to be a surprise.
But is there any chance you can at least let us know say...
If it's a jedi or sith or neither?
People would go to the shard shop then still hold off in case the new char is something they want. This info doesnt really help
whats the difference? the shard cost doesnt change if he needs to be farmed... unlocking a 4star character requires the exact same shards as a 1star character + upgrades to 4stars
Any tips on how we should be stockpiling? I remember seeing something about the more 7-star characters you have, the better. Does that mean having 50 extra Lumi shards won't be as beneficial as having 50 extra shards spread out amongst 10 different 7-star characters? Would help in planning to know. Thanks again.
That would some good information right there!
@EA_Jesse there will be other characters in this shop and not just the exclusive character right?
Keep up the good work
I'd say just plan for it. It's almost always a good idea to hoard the appropriate currency before an update goes live. They aren't doing a fantastic job of explaining it compared to other games who post it on their forums weeks in advance, but I don't know how large their team is and what directives they have. I would appreciate the heads up as much as anyone, but I also like the mystery surrounding it. We've gotten very spoiled at having complete access to development teams and the communication that the internet brings with it, but tend to forget that they don't really owe us anything. Make the argument you pay their bills all you want, but they didn't make you buy their packs any more than they made me. I chose it, and I can wait.
That being said...DETAILS! I WANT DETAILS!
Safest bet is they are playtesting the new char and don't want to mess it being too powerful or too underpowered.
None of them, why would they do that at this time, they just moved QGJ over. Only 8 of the characters are chromium exclusive.
Aayla, Cad Bane, Dath Maul, Grand Moff Tarkin, Kit Fisto, Lando Calrissian, Obi Wan Kenobi, and Princess Leia.
Why would they make a shop to encourage people to buy packs, only to deter people from buying packs and instead continuing to buy cantina/arena/GW shipments for shard exchange since the Exclusive characters can be purchased that way.
Only question i have is.........
Will this new mystery toon remain constant in the shard shop or will it be a linited time only thing????
