    Sounds like speculation.

    Yeah, but what toons needed? Just Cara, Kuill, IG, Mando, Karga, and Moff Gideon? Or will there be more...like a new Boba? Or Fennic, The Armorer, Boka-Tan (sorry if I misspelled), new Ashoka, etc., etc.
    Lol even Frog Lady. I mean she has her own character poster on starwars.com

    Nice. And being added to the journey guide immediately is even better.

    Oh, nvm about that with what toons needed, I read your thing @Ultra. But it would still be cool to get new toons eventually.

    Really good change

    It helps newer players, and players who took a break to catch up with the game

    I do like how there is still importance on newer toons (one year mark)

    I like how they are handling the shard shop situation. We aren’t getting less than we currently are

    Hopefully, we get a much needed economy change to gear, and relic salvage conversion - relics are endgame “gear” thats missing in every endgame content other than Assault Battles, and TB

    It might help people catch up but it's bringing a big part of players gear grind to a halt and slowing down the gear farm. I for one am bringing in less than half the gear I was from shard shop. Huge disappointment, and another door closed on upgrading characters. When your gear farming and they say mathematically it will be the same, NOT, bronzium cards is where most of my shard store income comes from yet payout is the same and shard store prices doubled means half the gear you were getting. Another wonderful adjustment by CG.

    It is mathematically the same

    Feelings can be deceptive but the numbers never lie

    If the numbers don't lie then why when the galactic battle is done and you collect all your shards that used to equal two to three purchases in shard store for up to 8 or more pieces of gear now is one purchase for 2 to 4 pieces of gear. Get real.

    Ironic telling someone to get real when you’re wrong.

    Because what you saying is not accurate.

    Everything they did was to make it a net neutral for the shard shop.

    If you have a specific example, please show us what you mean using actual items and toons, screen shots help, and we can help you understand what they did.

    Character shards are either double rate or double value in shard shop currency from every node location, event, raid etc.

    The only remaining issue was the full character drops from bronziums. While the shards dropped from these full character bronziums have halved in value, the probability of full character from bronzium drops has been increased. The effective change is as close to a net neutral effect of the shard economy change as possible.

    You may be experiencing bad RNG on these bronziums, but it has been changed to as neutral as possible.

    I would suggest reading some of the posts you are replying to, because you clearly don't understand the math here - and it's making you look very silly.

    Maybe all you people stating it’s neutral can smarten me up on the math I’m sure I’m just missing something - ten shards of Han still nets me the same amount of ssc from a pit sim right? Same with gk on a haat sim. Same on hstr. Same on events that drop shards. Same on ship events. So if I’m still getting the same number of ssc from shards on that stuff and everything in the store is doubled, my spending power is less? I don’t have an accounting degree. Something is telling me, less spending power in store means more crystals spent on gear equals more crystal purchases equals pay raises for the staff all around! I do see the advantage for newer players getting a catch up mechanic (long overdue) but for long time players this is a poke into my wallet to see if I’ll bite.

    Nope. 10 Han shards gets you 300 ssc which is double the old rate of 150. Same for GK and Traya.

    Assault battle shards were doubled.

    Ship shards doubled in ssc value.

    @Bagwell

    This is a catchup mechanic and as they stated beyond the change helping newer players get more it would be a net neutral for "everyone else".

    See above.
    Shards dropping at the same amount had thier SSC conversion doubled.

    Shards that are dropping double are worth the same SSC conversion.

    Bronzium full toons have been doubled in frequency to give double the amount of shards

    This has all been done to keep the buying power in the store which was now doubled in price.

    And there is what I was missing. Doesn’t feel double but it’s probably a getting used to the thing thing.

    I was going to ask that as i saw this for the first time in a while.

    “Our intent with this change is to help all players expand their collections faster”

    If this is the intention, I’m not seeing any noticeable difference from what it was before.

    @Xitarus the rate is literally doubled. Track you data and you can see this. Each hit is worth 2 vs before when a hit would be worth 1.
