    And that’s from me farming him since he is recommended for 3PO. P.S. I took off the 2 Crit Chance mods to throw on Revan, that’s why you see those 2 health mods

    I would like to know WHY, WHY all the characters/gear cannot be available to buy all the time?
    Everything on this game is RANDOM and takes forever, even if you have a plan it depends on RANDOM stuff.

    You might as well ask why a slot machine is random. These types of games are basically fancy mobile casinos.
  • I just came to post about this, and here it is revived. This problem is actually real. Like...no logray in the shop is first world problems, but seriously...
  • There is no problem with logray farming. Veterans had to wait 3 years to get 3po. If newer players don’t manage to beat the event within this time, we would have a problem. But actually, it would be their fault, wouldn’t it

    It is my own fault. I've been playing since December 2015, and I just didn't ever bother with ewoks, didn't bother with the ewok events and yeah, it's come back to bite me. But the rate in which he appears when you actually need to farm him is atrocious
  • Here to add my update - after going for 17 straight days from the start of C3PO event to 12/31 with zero Logray appearances, I’ve now gone from 65/85 to complete in about 5 weeks. That’s 120 shards, or 24 shards/week which is right on the expected average of 23.3 (1/6 chance of appearing per refresh x 28 refreshes x 5 shards).

    So either I was on a ridiculously horribly bad stretch of RNG in December (1/6 chance of appearing, or 5/6 chance of not, over 68 refreshes, or (5/6)^68 => odds of 242,284 to 1 against, I think) or there was some funny business with Logray around the event.

    Probably just unlucky. Anyways, done with this guy now, bring on the golden god.

  • Congrats
  • I was one of the lucky ones. Since 3PO came out, i checked my Ewoks all which were pretty weak, but my Logray was 80/100. No memory of farming him at all!
  • I am 98\100 and then this horrible nightmare will be over.

    I'm guessing that's because you did what I did early on, which was buy a bunch of chromiums before you realized they weren't worth it.

    He could of gotten lucky in the ewoks assault battle

    So many wasted crystals on refreshes and I’m finally done 7* Logray...pretty sad that he rarely shows even on wasted refreshes!

    I’m at 95/100. He’s a unicorn.

    Tbh logray has helped me prioritise my farming.

    I’ll slow farm him and focus on NS first and finally bother getting JTR

    It’s also encouraged me to get ahead of the curve and farm myself some clone troopers
  • 99/100. When will this madness end?
  • Finally!!!!!!!! I can carry on with my life now...
  • Logray seemed (seemed) to be in store at least once a day. Until i started farming him. Now twice a week.
  • I didn’t start farming him until after the event. Sitting at 79/100 shards, including missing a couple because I spent my guild tokens on gear. Is he rare? Yep. We’re likely at the midway point between the events. Not seeing the problem either though, so long as you’re checking refreshes and saving your currency.

    Same with Revan. After his event dropped, I went hard farming KoToR and had everyone 7* a month before he came back. Gotta commit if you wanna get these guys second time around.

  • Bring back the 15 daily frags from any store back! We are all sick of farming useless toons in Hard Nodes or Cantina Nodes
  • Logray rarely ever shows up. I'm still at 59/85. Doubt I'll have him done by the time Threepio returns, at this rate, but I'm strengthening the Ewoks that I do have to G11/12, so hopefully it won't be an issue.

    Now I'm at 9/100, so that's 35 shards in exactly a week, which is an average of one appearance per day for the 5 shards.

    Now I'm at 59/100, so the average for the past two weeks was just 25 shards per week - a little less than one appearance in the store per day.

    Finished him yesterday (thanks to Forest Moon), so that was another two weeks for around 50 shards.

    Glad to be done, but it sure feels weird not checking the Guild Store religiously, at every store refresh.

  • I've been farming Logray and Dengar for the past month or two - and I'm having the same problem.

    For a while they both showed up on occasion, and then suddenly it was just Dengar, all the time, and now it's still all Dengar all the time, which is annoying because he's been 7 stars for a while now and stupid Logray is still hanging out trying to get to his SIXTH star yet.

    So I feel OP here - there do, in fact, seem to be stretches where that otherwise unfarmable character just WON'T drop in shops and you wait. And you wait. And you wait.

    Personally I'm just waiting for the event to return because that will guarantee his shards showing up to buy in one way or another.

    If new players are getting 3p0, their priorities are really messed up. It takes much longer to get a decent team for him to make a difference on, then it should to farm a single character, who shouldn't be farmed until much later.
  • I have been farming Imperial Super Commando from the Guild Event Store. You think Logray takes a long time? Try ISC*.

    * yeah I know he also has a 16-energy Cantina node (8D) which could speed it up ;)

  • Wow. You guys that have finished, congrats. I'm still at 27/100 and I've checked every refresh since the event started. And I've bought his shards every time they've been available. Several in my guild are getting fewer than I am. I have never been above 20 shards in a week and consider myself lucky when I do get that many. Ive been taking screen shots of every guild store refresh for the last month. Right now I'm 0 for the last 15 refreshes on Logray shards. Logray comes up most often (by far) in the midnight to 6AM refresh for me. Logray is at 11% in the last month. Old Ben is at 10%, Echo 16%, Rex 18%, Cody and Kylo Ren, 22% each.

    I've also kept track of Grievous since the rework was announced. Vader has shown up in that spot once (2%), Grievous 17%, Mace 20%, Ackbar 30% and Tarkin 29%.

    It senses patterns in your behaviour.. Spending etc.. And then just messes with you.

    It’s confirmed... Logray only shows up 29% of the time and it is specifically during the midnight refresh.

    Just messes with you seems accurate! Seriously though. I didnt even get into my drop rate so far this year. 22% on all shards. 17% on zetas. I decided today I'm done. Another dolphin throws in the towel. I may stick around to see how close I end up on 3PO, or at least see if I can unlock him. I'll try to keep my dailies up until then but if I miss some, oh well. When drop rates are so bad for so long it really discourages spending and takes the fun out. Then throw in all the garbage CG tosses at us and...

    7 weeks of crap. The # of times I get 0 or 1 shard in 8 sims is absurd. 3 times today actually. That's just not fun. On a rare occasion i'll get 4 or 5 and it's great but then I'll go 0 or 1 for 8 a few times to completely demolish the bonus. This game is just like gambling. It causes the same dopamine rush.

    Good luck all and for those of you that have to pick up my crappy drop rates or those of you that got the opposite end and now go back to average, sorry!
