    After having 24hrs to mull it over, I'm not shocked how this has transpired. It's a marketing move for TLJ but skipping May 4th as some expected opens up our next batch of toons from the imminent Solo Movie.

    April introduces three characters we've been waiting for: Han, Lando and Chewie...

    I'm sure Ki'Ra and Beckett will arrive soon after. Perhaps with maybe a bounty hunter and an Empire toon. Who knows!

    Wouldn't it be spooky after the Sith Raid and toon changes that this fantastic 5 suddenly make doing damage in said raid possible?

    I wonder...
  • Would be good if they put some decently priced (in crystal) vet packs up, 1000 crystals for a hundred shards, 800 for 80 say, I think that would make this a lot more pleasing. Mind you, doubt that will happen as I think they like to charge a hell of a lot more

    yet no-one factored in that this game is a massive free advert for movie/dvd/blu-Rey releases

    I've literally said twice in the last two pages that I was expecting her for the physical release of TLJ, which I would think would be more of an event than digital. I was expecting BB8 for the digital though, but I was ready for that hence why I didn't mention it.

    Whilst that would be great, the shards for vets are charged at 80 crystals each and have been since there release so it wouldn't be fair to anyone who has paid for them in the past.

    For my part, I didn't have a complete first order team and so could only get a 5* BB-8 last time and I was also farming Captain Han Solo as he was needed for TB (guild event so was a priority).

    As it stands at the moment, I'm 66 shards short so am still hoping to get there by the last day with 3x daily refreshes otherwise will have a tough decision about whether to purchase shards.

    Legendary and Heroic events are not generally on the calendar when it is initially released, but are added later, after it has been announced that the event is coming back. If you see a month with no heroic or legendary events listed, more than likely there will be one or more announced at a later date.

    The calendar is used to plan. As far as i know, the purpose of the event calendar is only left with the Login character which might give us a hint about which faction rework or a legendary event that is going to happen.

    STH for this month, is there more stuff coming?

    It is obvious adding RJT WAS a last minute decision made due to massive complaints about the nerf. All decisions in haste are badly thought out. That being said, farming Vets should be priority for all players who have been around for a while
  • Super excited for jtr. When I missed it last time I started farming the vets right away. Just finished 7 starring both last week. No money spent. I just don’t know what people expect from an ftp game. It’s an app accessible from a cellphone. The devs owe none of us a thing. Especially those of us who haven’t spent a dime on the game. If something causes you this much strife, cut it out of your life.

    TL;DR: If you are above 500 in arena then you can on average, farm the vets if you started when Rey was released.

    You need: 600 shard total (as long as you did marquee)

    Shards if you made zero crystals a day:
    Daily energy over 90 days = 165*90 = 14,850 energy
    Shards = 14850/16 * .3 = 278 shards
    Remaining shards you need: 322

    How many crystals a day do you need to finish the vets?
    322/.3 = attempts needed for shards = 1074
    16 energy per attempt = 17,173 energy needed
    100 crystals = 120 energy so 17173/1.2 =
    14,310 crystals (-900 from monthly) over 90 days = 149 crystals daily needed

    You get 90 with dailes (assuming worst from prize box and you finish GW) so you need 60 more crystals daily... which you get if youre above 500 in arena!

    This is also with a .3 drop rate, many people argue the data shows .33 which would make this easier. (Along with TB crystals, lucky daily prize box, and error CG crystals).

    So yeah if youre above 500 in arena this was on average, doable for you, and more and more doable with a higher rank.


    love this breakdown now i know i wasted14000 crystals for JTR...does ne1 know if u can only do mystic events once bb8 mystic event isnt showing in my events
  • @CG_RyDiggs any chance of a couple days of double drops on the vets to help smooth things over?

    Anyone know roughly how much packs usually are/ how many shares will be in. Never been short for a second run event before

    Announcing events is to the advantage of Free to play players. Can't have that.

    Me too.
    I am happy I stayed on target.
    Haven‘t prepare enough gear / zetas though. Only G11.3 an 4/20 for first zeta.
    Luckily I saved 32k fleet currency.

    Hope you guys get her.
    I‘M PICKLE RICK!

    Its a grind, but well worth it.
  • RNJeesus wasn’t kind today. I needed 8 shards for Chewie, I got 5 out of the 400 cantina energy I burnt today (daily collection plus two refreshes)... Oh well. I’ll get them tomorrow... And I’ll be finished with that horrible veteran smugglers grind.
  • I am using an Empire team, and I been wanting IPD for my squad. So I went heavy on Imp Troopers. To get Snow and Death up to 7* was 4 months of boring RNG hell. And thats with getting 50 shards via Bronziums on Snow. If I start now on the vets, I should be set if they re-release her around Aug. Then there is the first order for BB8. Capt P, Kylo are both 7 stars for me. FOO, FOTP, and FOST are all 5 stars. Should i just slow grind those three and not worry about the other 3(Matt 4*, FOSFTP 4*, FOX 2*)? Since they use conflicting supply source?
  • 28 Chewy shards needed..
    I cant wait to farm someone else haha
  • I have read now so many replys of people who say "don't complain and it is months to farm"...

    I can show you my situation, maybe some people will get it:
    I am full f2p, no real money - but I like this game very much. I understand the meaning of CG to boost the panic farmers - with makes money, sure. Also the fact that JTR is coming "early" for compensating the strengh of the new raid...

    I myself wont start panic farming. As I said, I like this game but this fact won't change.
    Why we need a calendar?
    It is easy. Resources are really limited, especially if you don't spend any money. I was farming FO and didn't make it, JTR is far away for me.
    I didnt't start at the beginning of the game, so many "basics" I did not achive yet - and new marquee toons etc. I can almost ignore each time.
    I made some research; All 3 toons I really want to have but don't until now:

    Thrawn:
    - can come any day? Should come "now"
    2018-01-18 - 54 days
    2017-11-23 - 56 days
    2017-10-07 - 47 days
    2017-06-15 - 114 days

    R2D2:
    is overdue - if you assuming about 50/60 days again
    2017-12-21 - 82 days
    2017-10-26 - 56 days
    2017-08-03 - 84 days
    2017-05-04 - 91 days

    Luke:
    comes usually after R2D2 - if you calculate again bout 70/80 days, can come any day now.
    2017-12-28 - 75 days
    2017-08-10 - 140 days

    Because of the fact that CG wont tell anything, I have no idea on what to concentrate.

    Now my situation is as follows:
    I could finish my phoenix team - I have everyone on 7* but gear needs to be improved for sure.
    (Empire Team is ready for R2)
    Or I could focus on CLS - but if CLS is coming next, I really have to spend everything (!) I have on this squad.

    I don't want to bore you with specificas, but just a short summary:
    Energy: 5x20 in Luke, 3x50 shard refreshs on Gear for CLS squad
    Cantina: all + 100 shard refresh on Luke and Ben - if I calculate this way with 33% drop chance, I get ready in 24 days.
    I won't even start with skill material.. I will never max out CLS squad in time, same is for phoenix. Just not enough resources and als shards goes in refreshing.

    So what shall I do?
    I think I will fully concentrate on CLS, but it is just pure luck (or bad luck) what comes next. If Thrawn comes first, I will miss it again.

    Just my personal summury for all guys who say "its enough time" and so on. Sure, "some" time I will have each legendary toon... but with a little help of planning from CG (=calendar) it would be much more fun and CG will also make their money. There are always enough people who spend real money, even for new marquee toons etc. It is a major point to me which decreases the amount of fun. Farming for a legendary toon means months of preparatioin - if 2 month farming was for nothing (like FO team for BB8 right now), it is just frustrating and has nothing todo with bad planning. I just can't farm "only" legendary toons, I got Han for example from hPIT now - If I want to gear him, timetable for next legendary is ruined.
  • The LEAST they could do for players right now is give us double drops....but CG won't even do that. Thanks guys.

    That would require me to never spend any crystals for gear, Talzin, regular energy refreshes or mods. For several months. While farming for an event that may not come back for another few months. That's not a reasonable assumption to make and it's the same assumption that every single "you shoulda farmed better" commenter on here makes. Saying it's doable to drop everything else in the game on the off chance that the new raid might be broken so that she'll come back earlier than expected is not a reasonable thing to say.
