In all likelihood, Thrawn will not be viable

Prev13
And EA is smart enough to know that if we find out now, we will stop farming Phoenix...

Think about it, if Thrawn is that great, why would they be so secretive about his info? If he is OP and meta-changing, and we know he's here in 5 days, lots of people will drop resources and cash to max Phoenix.

The only logical explanation is that he stinks and EA doesn't want us to find out until it's too late and we've already farmed Phoenix.

    It sounds like he will be good in raids. Per the dev in the video. He seemed excited about that part.

    We need to wait for the game changers to report from EA Play and see what they report in his kit. Although in all honesty at times they just embrace everything CG does without calling them on their malarkey like how awesome Tarkin is ect.

    But to get him at 7* for the H Raids he's apparently great at will be a stretch for most.

    ^what he said
  • I disagree...i think less people will 7* him than R2, Yoda, and Ep this first time around. They know the difficulty the vast majority of the player base will face. I think it is because he will be great. If he was subpar, think gar, imperial trooper, Phoenix themselves, he would be an easy unlock or marquee event.

    Clearly they value Sabine the most as she is the hardest Phoenix to get, yet you got chopper free. I think Ezra was put in cantina nod only as a conflict with Hera. I figured he would be fleet shipments/guild shop only like Maul.
  • which raids???...thrawn won't be available in the heroic raids. Makes no sense.

    Why would you think that? Of course not. Would you rather have a 5* Thrawn or a 7* Thrawn? If Thrawn is so amazing in raids, why not show us what he can do so more people will strive to get him at 7*?

    We can go in a circle with your poor statement. So would you rather not have Thrawn at all?
  • Have to agree. When Thrawn was announced I had hopes that I could avoid dumping my Zader squad for rebels in the near future, but from the very minimal info given I doubt he would even be a viable replacement for anyone on my current squad.
  • (serious q) is there any particular reason why he's supposed to be good in raids?

    Why does everyone think that Thrawn will have a "legendary" event? Like Grand Master Yoda, Emperor Palpatine and R2-D2? Thrawn cannot be compared to those iconic characters in the SW universe. That would be an insult to them. Possibly Thrawn will have a Marquee event with a bonus tier available only for Phoenix, to upgrade him to 4* maybe. And I definitely agree with the OP, I don't think that he'll be viable at all, just another, not so bad, but not effective against Chaze character.

    Because the developers already confirmed it'd be a legendary event a few days ago in the update thread.

    Yeah guys, I just heard it also, but still I do think that it's not proper to compare him to those iconic characters, the shame is on devs.

    Thrawn is iconic to a lot of Star Wars fans. His book trilogy is fantastic and he's one of the most cunning villains in Star Wars lore (and I don't care what Disney decided is canon).

    Grand Master Yoda, Emperor Palpatine and R2-D2... you may be a Thrawn fan, there may be a lot of Thrawn fans, but that does make him comparable to those iconic characters. If you think he is, well, I have no words...

    Not Iconic? are you kidding He almost destroyed the new republic after the second death star and death of the emperor if not for a backstab by his bodyguard, he was the emperor closesed ally next to vader, if you compare him to some droid who can hack some stuff and THE ONLY alien GRAND admiral EVER who single handedly whooped luke han and leia with his superior thinking and the whole new republic, he deserves that legendary event.
    Not enough? look at rebels, he killed the bendu, he whipped the rebels, he is such a badass you dont even know, if you consider thrawn bad you are not a star wars fan

    Hey just because George Lucas wasn't smart enough to make sequels with him as the main antagonist doesn't mean he doesn't belong up there with Palpy
