    Some people not been on the game for a long time. Used every resource they could to farm the needed characters. Mythic events are for the challenge. Getting the characters shouldn't be a problem after all the farm efforts especially after spending for shards for the needs. Since journey will not be a mythic but plenty of us had to work a lot simply to get shards and g8-9

    See that’s why I need there to be a huge ceiling for this one. I’ve been playing this game since beta and have been contributing to this game for years. I’m 60k GP away from 5M. Some shmuck that just joined the game with 2m GP should not be able to compete with me for FREE. My 3 fastest mod sets are +162, +151, +143. There should be 0 reason why someone with 2m GP and half as good as mods as I should be overtaking me in arena just cause they feel like they are entitled to get DR for free. Make it difficult, very difficult. And make some sort of paywall.

    What? They will get DR for free and they will overtake You in arena. Also those Players were not so stupid like You, by spending money on trivial mobile game and You and Players stupid like You are the reason why this game is so expensive. If You wouldnt spend money on this game, they would have to lower the prices or game would be over. And if there wouldnt be Players free to play there would not be game, You are dependent on those Players, but You have no respect for them. You are not different couse You spent an absurd of money for this game.

    He is already the hardest to get character in game history.

    Jedi Training Rey was.

    Traya was.
  • Just to clarify the situation a bit: The time period from releasing the last two toons needed until event information was about the same as with JKR. Only this time around anyone who shares some interest in the game knew exactly and about 98% sure which toons would bew needed. So it was definitely possible even for mainly ftp players to get them to 7 stars in time. It recommended refreshs in cantina and nodes of course, but with proper arena ranking anyone was able to do so.
    Carth might be the biggest task as it is a fleet node which also cost christals for refreshing. But when thinking about finishing him at the end of the event anyone had four (or even five?) weeks to farm him. Around 10 shards per day, which is possible with two refreshes and maybe one 25 chards pack for 2000 christals in the store. What i really would love is that there are several teams that could reach top ranks and stay there on defense and not this 95% Revan teams. These mirrors and timeots sometimes become really annoying and one meta that tough is not good for the game and also not good for the Arena.
    I think there should be some advantages for regular and strategic players as for whales of course also. So if a lot of people will get DKR in the first time around it will be annoying for whales of course as they try to buy an advantage and put the money into EAs wallets for us all to enjoy a ftp game if we like to.
    But do I have to be angry if I am not in that of a good position if I won´t invest any money? I think that is normally quite fair that players who pay a lot should have strategic advantages in this game type. We will see how many players will be able to get DKR in the first go, if there are two many there will be a much more difficult way to obtain Malak, I promise :-)
    And by the way, I think Malak or another new release in this year will rip JKR and DKR apart anyway ;-)

    JTR had more requirements, but required many fewer crystals.

    A single fleet node is brutal.

    Traya you could get just by hitting the join button.

    If it was going to be that hard then I wish people couldn’t pay for the characters back when they came out, forcing everyone to farm the original way so then all of a sudden they wouldn’t want it to be hard lol. So no, the challenge was 7* them before the event starts
  • He is already the hardest to get character in game history.

    We will have one more week to farm him compared to JKR, but characters were available in half the locations.

    Don’t get it. Everyone said Jedi Revan was paywalled, but a harder character is too easy???

    I don’t agree he’s harder. I’m way ahead of where I was with Revan. Probably a week or so 😉

    You started panic farming earlier this time.

    If you started at the same time Darth Revan is much harder.

    I started panic farming both as soon as they came out. I panic farm everything, because I’m a veteran who has literally everything else already, in terms of shards. There was more time for this one. I don’t think I’ll even have to spend crystals in shipments. It will be close. Might need 1 or 2 shipments.

    Since when does farming 2x 16 cantina nodes require fewer crystals than farming 1x 20 fleet node? In fact if you farm both for 24 battles, it's 375 crystals for 1x 20 fleet node and 700 crystals for 2x 16 cantina node (you're even missing 1 battle due to being 3 energy short).

    And if you could just get Traya by pressing the join button you were probably in TI or any of the top 5 guilds because 99% of the player base could not afford to do that when the raid was released (because Javin was cealry referring to the early days of Traya when he said "Traya was.").

    Mediocrity shouldn’t be rewarded (not everyone gets a trophy). I hope gear 12 is required and a zeta or 2. I haven’t spent a dime and I am ready. Those FTP that didn’t prepare, spend a portion of their crystals cache in farming, or store gear shouldn’t be rewarded for lack of insight.

    2 weeks to farm Carth and Juhani with both being located in cantina at 16 a pop would be easier?

    I forgot about that. Back in March 2018 I just hit the join button and viola! Traya

    are you saying we only had two weeks to farm the vets? I don't think so.
    Save water, drink champagne!
  • I'm a mostly FTP player. I used gift cards I got for Christmas to buy the four OR Marquee packs. I've been using my fleet arena crystals to buy energy and refreshes. I'm super close to having them all 7*. I will be CRUSHED if not only is there a star check, but a gear check too. Hard work and focus should pay off.

    That’s kind of an odd statement. Hard work should pay off, so you shouldn’t make the requirements harder? So it shouldn’t payoff more for those who geared them to G12?

    are you saying we only had two weeks to farm the vets? I don't think so.

    Are you saying you would rather have had Junani and Carth placed in cantina immediately after the event announcement?
    https://forums.galaxy-of-heroes.starwars.ea.com/discussion/147608/reys-heros-journey-character-requirements#latest

    announced vets were required December 4, 2017
    Event started December 15th

    Of course I don't think you are saying that....I actually paid attention to context and realized you just missed the point. It happens.
  • I'd say make it about as difficult as the chewy/c3po events. The toons required for this event have some synergy but not enough to be super viable on it's own (unlike Carth with mission, big z and canderous, 2 of which are not in this event) so too much difficulty would cause (another) uproar
  • Lookit all these whiny whales.
  • #1 - There is no way the difficulty will be harder than Chewie/C3PO because this is a journey event...even references in the announcement about a "journey" to the Dark Side. Legendaries have been harder because you could use different characters within a faction as opposed to needing 5 specific characters. For example, doing the Chewie event was much harder without Bossk and Dengar than it was with them. Same with Wicket, Paploo and Logray in the C3PO event. So the actual difficult of those events varied with the characters used. #2 - The official announcement of which characters are needed for Darth Revan was made on March 13th, four days ago. Anyone who farmed those characters ahead of time did so on speculation and assumptions...it may have turned out that those characters were not needed for anything. Therefore, suggesting that Darth Revan is "easy" to get is nonsense....farming characters before the requirements are announced is a high risk, high reward strategy. Juhani and Carth have only been farmable for 25 days so if someone has had them 7* for months then they whaled out on them when their Marquee packs were out....that's on you....could have gotten them much cheaper when they became farmable. #3 - People at the top of the arena have a very skewed view of the game...they are kind of clueless about players outside the top 50 of the arena....it's not like 90% of the players are going to get Darth Revan.

How can you honestly suggest that someone who has gotten all 5 of these characters to 7* when the requirements were only announced 4 days ago is someone who "didn't prepare"? That's absurd, lmfao. Here's some "insight" for you....no journey event has ever required G11 or G12 gear across the board...you're suggesting that the gearing requirement should be similar to a legendary event rather than the journey event it is.....that's not "insight", that would be predicting a complete change in years of precedent with these events.

    All due respect dased on your pic and screen name, unfortunately your ideal of rewarding dedication is misplaced.

    They always reward new money, and they will get it.

    They want it this way, or you would need need JKR to get Darth Revan.

    Dedication/time in - which seems to be a fleeting concept to the publishers and only important to playerbase - comes in the form of hoarding, farming, gearing, good mods - which you could pay for too. *that’s* your paywall.
    HUTT TANK: YOU HAVE TO BRIBE WITH CRYSTALS TO PASS MY TAUNT!!!
  • They have to make it F2P accessible or all the F2Ps, like me, will get triggered. I am going to be mad if it is extremely hard to get

    Don’t go there. That has nothing to do with anything. Stop it. Get some help.

    They could just make him a counter to Revan but still be beatable by revan. Then anyone who gets him can choose light or dark and we can all just move forward.

    That's exactly how I'm going to see this going down. And in the process, we may see other counters like Traya, Rebels, NS etc. to maybe just maybe bring back a little more joy in arena. But I find it very hard to believe that a kit alone will destroy JKR/jedi.

    Those people who have everything g12 will hit the arena day one and earn their rewards there. I'm hoarding gear and preparing, but doubt I could get all five g11 much less g12. There's hard work... And there's unattainable without $$$.

    Isn’t it fun to actually have a challenge in the game? Rather than push all buttons and win. What makes Chewie and C3po so cool is the fact that you had to sweat to get them. Even more so if you managed with minimum requirements and the RNG gods loved you.
    The JKR event was such a joke, it felt dirty getting him. So dirty that I didn’t even bother gearing him up. Just used sith instead!!!
    Make the event hard, I can’t bare seeing every lame joe show up with a toon and make arena boring again. Plus what do FTP players do for the game apart from whining on forums?

    No it's not fun, it's annoying when you have to upgrade your characters the highest you can, spending your hard earned resources to meet the event requirements and you STILL have to depend on RNG.

    So no it's NOT fun.

    The requirements have been farmable for quite a while now and if you honestly didn’t know how to prepare until 4 days ago, you’ve been living under a rock. And please don’t be naive that CG wouldn’t change the rules in their favor. I don’t take stock in the past definitions of what kind of event this will be. Money is money and CG will get theirs regardless of the angry mob.

    A character as celebrated as Darth Revan deserves to be exclusive for the first round, at least. Personally, I hope that holds true.

    No its not.

    Chewy was over the top rng fest. I beat it first time around but i had no pride in my feat. It was simply luck. Plain and simple

    Ewoks i didnt have up and ready for 3po round 1. But the second coming i did and it wasnt hard at all.

    Again, no pride in the feat... simply had the required gear, characters and zeta.

    Hard doesnt make it fun. Chewy was frustration, ewoks were better but again it was all about gear 12 elder and gear 11 others with zet chripa and having logray. I couldnt hit auto but it was done on first try.

    Chewy and C3po required characters that were F2P at the point of release. The only way to make money at that is force gear sales.

    I get you dont want a meta shift like JKR, but it shouldnt be over the top difficult that only breeds annoyance.

    Whales who bought the characters expect return on investment. Not delivering on that with spammed preload turn meter will only hurt profit and make spenders feel cheated.

    The key is just enough time for some F2P to get it if they planned really really well or spend a bit and whales who spent the cash to get it with ease.

    This. ^
