    When will challenge rewards be removed from Heroic Raids?

    Yeah I think at this point we're all way too afraid to ask for challenge gear to be removed after the nerf of the sith raid rewards. I can't imagine how haat rewards could get any worse, but if they nerf the pit rewards like they did sith raid .....

    One idea could be to remove gear, increase coins, add more gear to the stores.Then you buy what you need only.

    So, basically, "remove challenge gear--but not the challenge gear I need. Just the others."

  • If they make haat or pit raid rewards worse then they might as well just come out and say they want people to quit. It’s already ridiculous.

    For clarity. The update will occur between now and the 26th?

    @CG_Carrie How dare you sully the name of our favorite dead princess by sullying her name with such sully? I demand that you retract such sullification while sullying us with less sully sulliciously.
  • I'm surprised there isn't much writing on this megathread.

    Carrie did a good job apologizing where she didn't necessarily need to (Rebel Roundup date moving) but still showing that they cared about it and were aware. She addressed many issues (although not all) that have bothered us as a whole, and even hinted at when the update would come in, two weeks from now, which is something we like to know. We also know new characters are coming (update coincides with Solo movie, new Han and Chewie and all) and with the ships, chat, titles, a new Community Manager, and all that great stuff, it needs to be recognized. Thank you!

    Here's hoping for more "What's next" now that we have a new Community Manager

    Nope, there is a massive ship shard that is getting broken up/shuffled because it is ridiculous. That's all.

    Nothing about the 2 newg12 pieces they talked about?
    And why do we get no G13, lvl cap or 6 dot mods?
    If you plan doing more gear Level, what are you doing with the 7* gate for G12?
    If you keep that gate marquee events and everything not 7* is useless.
    Just saying, think about the future of the game.

    Any news on why the character shard drop rate has gone down? I understand RNG, but it feels like ever since the BH update, shard drop rate has become the worst that I can remember since the beginning of this game.

    Conspiracy hats on for this one: Does anyone here think that they nerf shard drop rates without telling us?

    Why not fix the problem and just get rid of payout times? Instead, reward players based on their max rank for the day.

    Because that's even more collusion-rewarding.

    Yes, lots of people think that.
    No, they don't do it.

    Because none of this is real and it's all speculative.

    I think most shards top 50 are collusion-y now. Not the newer ones... for now. I don’t mean that to have a negative connotation either. Shard chat is great. There has to be some way for arena to work with out people taking advantage of it with out it being 7 or 8 pm. There are way too many good thinkers here not to figure out something.

    Her real name is Carrie.... Shocking how more than one person can share the same name, huh :confused:

    actually it's shocking you took that post seriously.

    Randomize arenas every couple months for people who started at a similar time. People could still collude, but it gives people a chance to take control every couple months, but also makes it less likely that people will, as it takes a bit of effort to find all new people every now and then. And would give us all new people to fight against.

    Not being a naysayer at all. Just that the fact Carrie even brought it up as someone they are “looking into” is huge. I believe on the Q and A she said there are 0 plans for it.
    So I think that movement of players and shards would be more work on the devs part. Maybe. I think they are looking to help players out for a one time fix.

    Eh. That’s overkill. For folks that finish top 200 or so, shaking up leaderboards occasionally would lead to a drop. We are where we are largely because our leaderboards have depopulated over time. We’re not interested in being #1, but we don’t want to suddenly plummet to #500, either.

    Haha yeah, just trying to think outside the box! If they randomized, it would still be drawing from the same pool of people, so you'd have the same number of inactives and whales on average, but might be some better and worse months, rng depending.

    Regardless I'm super supportive that they're offering the change and slowly introducing it. It's probably the healthiest thing for the community, to slowly introduce it, so there's not any huge exploits that can't be undone.

    What are you smoking?
    2 new gear pieces are coming in may, if this wasn't abandoned.
    The rest has to come because we are not staying on lvl 85 and G12 for ever.
