Be sure to check out the live stream today over at https://www.ea.com/
The press conference starts at 12pm Pacific Time, with the Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes portion beginning at 1:15pm Pacific Time. Be sure to tune in for a closer look at Grand Admiral Thrawn!
1. Save up Shard Shop Currency. Don't waste any trying to get toons to 5☆ faster. Phoenix Flash event is going on and off all month. Last day of the event is the 30th. (Unless it gets changed)
2. Farm Hera in Cantina 1-F, Ezra from Ship Shop (Don't Farm him from Cantina 2-B untill Hera is 7☆), Subine from Guild Shop and 1-A Dark Side hard node, kanah from Arena Shop, Geb from GW Shop, and Chopper from Cantina Shop.
If you focus on this you should have all toons 5☆ befor last flash event on the 30th and get the 2 full parts and 3 Zeta. If any are not 5☆ by the 30th (because everyone knows RNG hates us all equilly) Ezra and Sabine might not show up in shop enough. You can use your Shard Shop currency to take them to 5☆ and do Bonus tier. If you did get them all to 5☆ without Shard Shop then save the currency.
Thrawn: Will probably be a 7 Day event like Yoda, EP, and R2D2. So when event launches no need to rush. Just keep farming toons untill last day of event and use Shard Shop to hopefully take 1 or 2 toons to 7☆.
I'm not saying if you do this you will get 7☆ Thrawn. If you are F2P like myself this will probably be the best way to do it.
Good Luck to all and happy grinding.
It's random and a way to increase rate while also farming cantina to help meet your goal/timeframe.
You can get 60 shards from the Fleet Shop by breaking even, cost of 3 zetas. With the ultimate goal of having a team that can get Thrawn... which is a value you didn't mention.
You might be strapped for zetas but not everyone is, I have 80 sitting in my account, waiting for a needed home. I most likely will shift my Fleet resources into farming Ezra, just as I did for GK gear.
I'm free to play and I'm thinking about trying to get 5* Thrawn. I did it with Palpatine and it was great having him geared up when I was finally able to 7* him. So if it is only 5 of the 6 toons, which one do we leave out?
If you farm all 6 then you have a higher chance of being able to make 5 7☆ out of the 6.
I'm aiming for first time out. Who knows when event may come again. Thrawn might not be usable for arena but might be for HAAT. Much like a condom: I'd rather have it and not need it, then to need it and not have it. (I know that quote came from AVP.)
Advise above to farm to 5-6* is probably pretty good, get all your characters up to min level to at least participate and then worry about boosting further based on your other resource/team needs.
In fact 6000 currencies of the ships you purchase 75 Ezra Shards
3 Zeta 6000 Ship Currency, 1 Full Cuff 6000 Ship Currency or 1400 Crystals, 1 Full MK5 FF 1400 Crystals.
Ezra 80 shards 6400 Ship Currency.
I will not do any progress within many days, if I complete the phoenix squad.
I am happy to spend resources with the children? Not even a little! But I'm competitive so it's practically an obligation.
Except you don't need to spend ship currency on Ezra to do this. I got Hera and Ezra both to 5 stars already just farming them in the Cantina. Didn't have to spend precious ship currency. So, I'll get Tier 4 flash event's rewards AND have my ship shop currency.
waaaaaaaahhhht? You're kidding, right? Never thought about that
12pm PDT for the live show hosted by EA JESSE!
We need more game modes in ships, and we can probably have some real time battles like Force Arena that matches you up based on skill and ability.
And how do you know that?
He played this card and saw it all....
The new game mode is going to be announced today, it was mentioned quite a few times that it's NOT the Flash Events.
I guess we'll see in a couple of hours. I am ready for a big disappointment, but hope dies last.
I am not surprised. People on this forum are pretty much the most ungrateful people in the entire world. Nothing makes them happy. Nothing satisfies them. But I understand them. They simply haven't played any other games to know what an actual disappointment and actual p2w is.
Truth. More than one game became unplayable after a week or so unless you spent money.
