    Hi folks,
    I know everyone is clamoring for more info on Revan so here a few quick updates for everyone on the Ancient Journey for Jedi Knight Revan:
    • Difficulty/Gear Req - This Ancient Journey is balanced to be in line with Hero's Journey events. We design these events so players can experience the story without needing to bring your characters to G11 or G12. This will not have the difficulty of the Original Trilogy Chewbacca event
      Requirements & Recommendations:

    • Will this event return? - Of course, all our Legendary, Hero's Journey, and now Ancient Journey, events will return in the future. We don't have a timeline for when this event will return but rest assured you will have another chance to get Jedi Knight Revan. As CapGasp mentioned, this event will have some awesome rewards at each tier so it's worth trying to complete some of the event even if you can't finish the whole thing.
    • Revan Kit - Last but not least, we will be revealing the final details of Jedi Knight Revan's kit prior to the start of the event next week

    What about Road Ahead post and will be ever able to repley Journey events ?

    You've got to be kidding me - you want us to spend money and (panic) farm so we can unlock Revan BEFORE you show us his kit reveal?? That is crazy. Come on. Poor showing.

    Any word on double drops? Would be greatly appreciated even if for a few days @CG_SBCrumb

    or you can just wait until you see the kit before spending money, besides; they're not making you spend anything....

    Hi...Um...does this mean you don't have it on any projected calendar at all?

    Ya'll made the most player unfriendly event you possibly could and don't have an idea when it'll be coming back?

    Really?

    I thought you guys plan years ahead according to you. Final details? Road ahead next week? Doesn’t sound like there is any plan ahead. We are starving for info that should be ready to release. Don’t announce something with it being half done!

    The issue with that is it can mess up the farm. Once the event is announced you have to decide to go in on it or wait regardless of what info is available when the event is announced. That's why is real bad they didnt have the kit ready when they announced and why it's even worse they won't have it ready until just before the event. It shows they rushed the event instead of waiting until it was actually ready for release.

    While the comments about needing to upgrade Revan's kit are concerning, it is nice to know that gear 9 is what we will need to finish the event.

    Lol, considering all the resources those of us are putting into the KOTOR toons just to get them to 7 stars, needing lower gear levels seems reasonable. Thanks!

    Sorry but:

    hah! told you if you use logic and trust in consistency of wording stuff like this it cannot be a HJs, but didn't fullfill the Legendary Event part either. New Narrative-Event

    @CG_SBCrumb how about some Old Republic double drops to take us into the weekend? 🙃

    I hate the term “whale,” by the way, it’s a jealous perjorative used by people who can’t afford to spend but want to feel morally superior like not spending is a choice they madde instead of a circumstance they just happen to be in

    It's a casino slang term to talk about high roller and big spenders. It was first borrowed by the F2P publishers to label the demographic of high spenders and it seeped to the general public via interview and papers on the topic.

    Yeah, and “non-plussed” originally meant to be completely baffled and confused by something and now it means to be passiveky unimpressed, what’s your point? Words have multiple meanings and usages. That it used to be a casino term doesn’t stop people here from using it to describe anyone that they lose to in Arena or anyone who can do better in a raid/territory battle than them.

    Sounds like you are also trying to lock down Revan as an actual decent toon because testers were annoyed he was underwhelming. This is a major concern because it alsmost sounds like he was only envisioned as a vanity character and not a meta changer.

    Also, when is the event ending? The last time there was this much of a silence of actionable information it became a HUGE nightmare. We do need actionable information here before many of us commit.

    Exactly. They want to reveal the Kit and then the Road Ahead... I just fear about that upcoming plans, that they might include Revan again


    @CG_SBCrumb and all others:
    Thank you for the update! I honestly must say this and this is not rant but me thinking out loud with the intention to give some insight:


    This has been the worst and messiest reveal and worst communication I have seen from CG in months, even if we'd get him for free on Christmas Eve on G13. It doesn't change the fact, that by excluding trivial information that wouldn't have revealed anything "valuable" to us either, people would have only complained about not getting him, rather than arguing what kind of Event, lack of information and communication, etc. ...
    I do assume this is counted as being some kind of negative PR which is still PR, but in the long term you do not do yourself a favour as has been seen more and more in the resistance towards EA (SW:BF2, Battlefield V).

    While still a lot of players will be unhappy by the short farming time, an awful lot of this mess could've been avoided if you just had added a few lines specifying what's going on.

    It's not HJ, it's not Legendary, it is something new and the toon "fully" unlocks at 7* (use the same wording as in HJs for AJs)

    Again, as I said. I am not trying to be disrespectful in any way. If it comes across as that, I am truly sorry. I just try to think this out loud. You're doing an awesome job with your teasers and puzzles! I really respect that and understand the effort you put into it! Yet, I think there is still room for improvement, especially if we have situations like this. I was personally more bugged by arguing what kind of event this will be, than being able to get Revan the first time around or not.
    Additionally, we the comments we got so far, it feels like a rush job. Rush jobs are never a good thing. Will the Revan testers be able to test him again after changes? Lot's of questions there, too.

    Its such a double edged sword they got themselves into, if the kits too good people who just got Traya after much blood sweat and tears will be annoyed that their investment into the games hardest raid (with lower tiers overtuned to the point of bigger then 50% health reductions) is now mute as instead of spending any time working on HSTR teams, they should have just invested everything into the five Kotor tagged characters...

    And if the kit not good, then all these people spending up to like a thousand dollars will want their money back, they really should have kit revealed before buyable packs came into play. Atm they are doing everything they can to get as much backlash as possible and its weird.

    If people knew the kit before you could spend for the kit, then it would have been much better for them. And you have to start spending now too cause really most of these things are saying up to 50k crystals if you started farming "now" not when the kit reveal came out, which means anyone waiting will have to spend much more in order to get him.. if he's too good to pass up, a new hero that's meta defining...

    hahaha man, this chaos is great, even the crazy white knights who literally just post complaining about complainers are joining in all over. They complain more then anyone here as they complain about people complaining. Best way to defend bad business choices I guess is instead to target people giving feedback and make the actual players feel bad xD.

    The question is, do you shake your presents before Christmas, or do you wait until you can actually open them?

    I'm just happy game players actually got to give the devs feedback on Jedi Revan so that they could tweak his kit. It would have been disappointing if he was released to the player base and he was underwhelming.

    Not saying he will be OP now, but at least it seems like the devs are tweaking him to be better, which is good.

    Saw a post on Discord that said testing wasn’t going well, so a kit reveal isn’t ready.

    Carrie Gouskos, who's a producer, also commented on Twitter that the team is working OT over the weekend. Now she didn't mention anything regarding Revan, and this may have nothing to do with him.

    But I'm becoming more and more concerned. It seems to me they should take their time with this, but with Revan event less than 6 days away...

    Absolutely, he has to be good for the money.
    I am not going for him but those who pay need to have a good toon.
