    OP. did you try reading the forums?
  • @EventineElessedil someone on Twitter asked if she expected people to spend $4-5k on this game and she said yes. So, yes. That's what she said. All people? No, but for anyone to spend that much money on this game is extremely absurd.

    Although I imagine she was extremely frustrated with what had been currently going on, to imply that anyone should spend that much money on a mobile game every year is uncalled for.

    Actually, the question she was asked was "Do you guys expect people to pay $4-5k to catch up?" So it's not really clear what was meant by that question. Catch up to who? New people catch up to people who have been playing the game for over 3 years?
  • @Vos_Landeck even if the question is not so clear, she is implying that someone should spend thousands of dollars for an online game. Not once in my life have I ever had to spend that much money to compete in a game. Be it virtual or real. So her/their (CG, EA) expectations are clearly out of the world. The pricing for these character packs are way too expensive.

    4000 gems honestly doesn't count as much of a stash.

    If you are a f2p, it counts as good. Especially when you dont have kenobi to gear at the moment. Juhani is the easiest to gear, and kenobi is not 7 star yet. And dont even talk about carbanties.

    4000 crystals... is not a stash.

    I've never had to spend that much, either. And I still don't. Be patient and you can get literally everything.
  • @YaeVizsla oh I understand. I have nearly all the characters minus the latest legendary ones. But I'm talking about people who have dropped hundreds of dollars on this event or previous events and can't unlock the character.

    Hearthstone added a bit of a safety measure into their RNG packs. If you unfortunately buy 39 packs without a legendary hit, the 40th pack should be one. I'm not sure if this was ever publicly announced, but it's what I've been told.

    Also when a new set comes out, you are guaranteed a legendary hit within the first 10 packs.

    In this game, you could buy 40 packs of shards and still get the minimum. Are there any safe guards in this game to prevent people from over spending? We have the odds now, but how likely are they?

    Did you seriously ask how likely are the odds?

    I was able to finish 5* with the above Separatist squad and it only took 2 tries.

    Never tell me the odds.
  • To be fair, 4000 crystals is not much of a stash even for the 100% free to play. I have spent a total of $19.99. Back in January of 2017.
    Since then nothing.
    I have DR, but missed on Malak. Have padme at 5⭐️, 4 saved zetas. 22,000 saved crystals and not even that is a huge saved stash.

    Malak has much more difficult requirements to unlock. Padme....basically was an Asaj Solo. I don’t buy the crap of 4 level 1 toons with a g12 Asaj, but I did beat it with g12 Asaj and some g8-10 toons.

    What I’m trying to say is, most people were ready for the event. And it wasn’t to the degree of DR and Malak, so therefore she should not be as powerful as they are.

    You used up your entire crystal stash? As in methamphetamine? That's an awful habit it's no wonder you can't make progress in this game.

    Weird. I didn't spend any crystals and I got her just fine.

    Sucks to be you :(

    Funny thing, though, the crystals I didn't spend on Padme are now being spent on those shock prods she needs. Man am I going to be grateful when those components get added to a store....

    "They never said it, but this is what people say they said" is generally not a good line of reasoning.

    Hello, I'm a 1.37m GP player and I am now entitled to get the latest legendary character handed to me on a silver plate since I have 5 seperatists on 5* and g5-7.

  • @NicWester Have you played hearthstone? If you had, then you would know about the 40 pack thing. It's to ensure the player that they are guaranteed a legendary card whether they used cash or from daily quests. You know, to help the player feel like they can progress.

    @Nauros correct. Not all characters are equal. However looking at my shipment store. All the shards being sold for crystals cost 80 crystals per shard. If I wanted to buy them outright (not including refreshes and excluding the current crystal sale), it would cost me roughly 28,800円。

    There was an outcry when BF2 launched and EA changed pace. This game is way more expensive. Where is the outcry? The director(that's her duty right?) publicly said she wants people to spend $4-5000 a year on this game. What? Just what?

    That is NOT what she said.

    You are right. She didnt say she wants.... she said she expects them to.

  • Most f2p players in our guild carry a stash of 20k+ crystals minimum most well over 30k. 4k is a drop in the bucket and not a stash just a tiny dirty stache that hasn't been washed in a few days.

    Literally the opposite of that. The number itself was arbitrary to the fact she hadn't significantly considered the goal of "catching up" in a game where there is no "up" to catch, the arena is instanced by start time, and GA and TW are instanced by power, making the idea of "catching up" unnecessary.

    It was essentially a shrug, not her offering a hard number. The consideration and design resources went into making sure "catching up" wasn't a thing you had to do. Not for what it would take to do it anyways for no reason.

    The "catching up" part imo was a pointless ask from the person she answered... instead she answered the question from the perspective of someone's expected spending to unlock the newest content, in this case malak.

    Devs still expect the playerbase to spend ungodly amounts of money for virtually no return.... "unless it is unpalatable"

    Yeah no, she said some people would spend money to stay "at the tip of the spear." She quite carefully never mentioned an amount and she never said she "expects" players to spend anything that they cannot afford. You are deliberately putting false words in her mouth and that's not ok. It's never ok, it needs to stop, and I will always stand up to say so.
