As seen above by following that link. He is a heros journey style release. This means you need the exact set of toons required.
Legendary releases are only faction limited, which is what you are thinking of.
...qutoes from moderator.The difficulty of events doesn't change.
The difficulty of events like these has never been changed, regardless of what some people who have poor RNG one time might claim.
The requirements are also fixed. Legendaries (Thrawn, BB-8, GMY, EP, R2, Threepio, Chewbacca) require ANY five toons from a specific faction. Less wiggle room for some factions by limited choices and some toons being far more effective, but any five can be chosen. This differs from the Journey style events (CLS, JTR, Revan), which require five SPECIFIC characters, which do not change between events. As these are some of the most powerful characters in the game developers wouldn't risk the outcry changing the requirements would cause.
So yes, Revan will need Bastila, Zaalbar, Mission, Jolee, and T3, and around gear VIII will get the job done.
There are only two solid reasons that make me really concerned.
Not even going to recommend anything, but I keep gearing OR JKR unlock toon set over IX. Just for the case.
- According to the original game, at least Karth Onasi and Canderous Ordo were critical for the whole story. Which makes me worried that CG can add one or two stages to the journey, at least.
- Thoughs on how official Kyno quotes are.
Current thinking is Carth, Canderous, Juhani, and Bastila Fallen will be for a different event for a new DS character, maybe Malak or Sith Revan, and perhaps also requiring Jedi Knight Revan.
If you don't intend to use the required characters for Jedi Knight Revan elsewhere (though they all have their merits in certain teams), why not take them to gear VIII, and save the gear they need to go higher and only equip it if you need to?
This never happened previously for any heroes journey. However, the requirements for Chimaera's event was once lowered.
I just don't know how related forum moderators and members of development team are. He could've been expressing his personal opinion there. Or, he does know that for sure. There's a difference.
I cannot comment on how official my statements are. I am doing the best I can do, but am not a dev. They could obviously change things without me knowing/being told.
No they will not add stages or make changes to an event like this without stating so. We have never had an event changed in this manner. If they dont like the structure of an event, they stop doing that event and release a new one. That we have seen.
This event will be the same as it was last time.
If they want to "extend" that event by using the new toons they will release a new event.
Also, I've got really rough time unlocking 5* GMY with what I had these days. And I would really like to take a... Revanche by unlocking 7* GMY (that little nasty jedi hulk, thrice sawn-off) with 7* JKR)))
I suspect not every forum reader knows the awnser, or what the difference between a mod and a dev exactly is, so this thread could actually benefit alot of forum users. Unfortunately it just comes across as fearmongering.
Personally i would take a mod's, in this case kyno's, statements on the issue that's in the title more serious than just some random guy who questions said statements.
I REALLY want to believe you, especially it being you who are always helpful, but I'm still not 100% sure. Sorry.
I am pretty sure the level of the enemies won't be increased, and there won't be new levels. Where I'm not convinced is in the presence of Revan himself as an ally. The first time around we had a lot of rumours going around, how the kit was changed the previous day, how those with access to the event where underwhelmed, and the fact that you had Revan helping throughout the event really looked like a last minute fix to appease people. May be because the event was too hard before that. Whatever the reason, having the toon you are unlocking as an ally was a very strange thing, and a first time ever. And was it may be a one time only thing?
That's my biggest fear; that this wednesday they'll be releasing a statement saying how, since we have had so much time to prepare for the event, this time, and looking forward, Revan will not be accompanying us.
I hope I'm wrong...
Could we get a definite answer, @CG_SBCrumb @CG_Carrie ? Thank you!
That's an interesting question, but JKR wasn't simply added to the team as an ally, he takes important role in cutscenes/cinematics/plot itself, right?
I must admit that I don't really trust CG. I will only start if I'll see that this time the event difficulty and requirements will be all the same. As for now - we didn't get any clarification from Crumb or Carrie about event difficulty and requirements. And as for Kyno - he admits that devs may change anything without noticing him. So, I won't be too surprised if they'll raise difficulty to force us into buying some brand new gear packs or whatever.
But, removing the main character of the plot would be really weird. Why doing that if they can simply boost enemy stats?
(Yes, the requirements for Chimaera's event were lowered).
When it turns out the event is exactly the same, will you feel silly for worrying about it before hand, or will you think they (ea/cg) will most likely do it the next time or find some other reason to justify your feelings?
Uh we all know that's not true. Those that were here for Thrawn know the event difficulty spiked the second time he came around. Granted it was due to the implementing of Zetas but it was still a pretty big jump.
Nonsense. I remember all the whining. I had no issue with the thrawn event second time round (only got him 5* on the initial run). Your point brings me back to people with poor RNG claiming an event has been altered.
And low geared toons
No, I will not fill silly.
And no. If this event's difficulty will be the same as it was last time, that'll make a good reason for me to think that they won't be raising any legendary event difficulties in future.
It's just... Nothing stopped them from making this character such a sky-high paywall. Don't you remember all the drama? And if they think that they can drain people even further (I am pretty sure they do), why wouldn't they?
Yes, there's a chance that a lot of f2p will ragequit. And so what? They aren't getting anything from f2p players, so why would they actually care?
In my point of view - last time this event happened, they've expressed their money hunger eloquently enough.
They will not remove him as an ally, that would be a change to the event. They do not change events in that way. If they are unhappy with an event they pull it and release a new event. There is also 100% no reason to think they would change it.
They were not rumors, the dev team stated they got feedback from beta/game changers that he was underwhelming and they decided to change his kit. This had nothing to do with the event nor caused any changes to the event.
They do not change events in the manner you are expressing ever. The use of him as an ally was more of a nod to the fact that he was the playable character in the game. This was also the first run of an Ancient Journey (or whatever they called it) and that could also be why we saw a different layout with him as an ally.
It wasn't that big of a paywall though. 5 characters, no zetas needed, and G8 only. Sure, they kept the farming schedule as tight as they normally do to ensure only a select few (most of whom spent some money) unlocked him. But outside of shards you didn't really need anything else. Requiring 10+ characters (by way of including a Legendary among those required for Revan), or G12 with multiple zetas would have been a "sky-high paywall."
The $400 unlocking was from game changers that unlocked with no farming (pack purchases only). Most folks I know spent significantly less than the $300 required to bring a new marquee character to 7*. Revan, Bastila, and Jolee at 7* for less than a marquee? Doesn't sound horrible...
Fair enough, strange, but fair enough.
I'm sure there will be character releases in the future that are just as hard or even harder to obtain the first go around than revan. Mainly because if they release a palp difficulty event now it will basically be a hand out for all long term players, so it makes sense that the difficulty gradually increases over time.
So while i don't think they'll increase the difficulty to make more money, there's still enough money to be made in this game and i'm sure the devs will try their hardest to do so by any means necessary. However, this game has been super f2p friendly this entire time, so apparantly they also care about maintaining a healthy playerbase. That seems contradictionary, but i guess that is how they think they'll make the most money in the long run. Afterall, they aren't running a charity.
They didn't change the Thrawn event. The Thrawn event was made slightly harder by virtue of previous improvements made to enemy AI not due to anything with the event actually changing.
No you really don't. It was harder because they added a zeta to Thrawm the second time around.
The minimum gear requirement rose too. And the kill order changed.
That may not be the only time either. I can't speak to EP or Yoda post zeta but id have to guess they got tougher too.
No they didn't. Thrawn hasn't changed since he was released. In fact, it's easier than the first release because Phoenix got zetas. And neither the Yoda nor EP events are any different. You can play the first tier of the mythic and see that it's the same as it was.
