    I think CAT will be the new one. Just hope they don't "rebalance" conquest too much...

    I doubt CAT would be for Kenobi, people won’t be able to unlock her until like July or August (assuming she’s the same as RC) and there’s no way they release him and not have anyone be able to unlock him straight away

    Maybe. Do we know if Kenobi drops with the last batch of requirements or at a later date? The RA says that three Conquests should be enough to 7* CAT, so if he drops later, they could fit it in.

    I don’t think they said but if last batch of reqs is on the 6th of June then I would expect his event to drop the same month, they’d have to wait till August to make CAT fit in and that just doesn’t seem like a possibility for me, it would kill all of the hype without a doubt. If Fallen Anakin is the next one then I can see CAT being required for him, would line up a lot better for sure.

    Last batch is 6/9. Event should drop probably on 6/30 to match current cadence, but could be 6/23 as the last two sets were 2 weeks after the final requirements.

    CAT as a JMK requirement seems impossible since she won't be activated for anyone yet.

    I feel that if they require KAM in any fashion, it'll cause a lot of people to flock to 50 shards of KAM discord server hoping to join guilds that are getting high amounts of KAM shards. It'll suck for a few months until people get those shards for KAM (2-7 months if they get ~50 shard per LSTB) because people that aren't going after JMK would just stay behind in their base guilds in the mean time.

    But oh well, I'm sure no amount of complaining will change CG's mind, it should be very obvious ever since forever that it wouldn't be a happy choice if they make it a hard req.

    My guess is that they won't want KAM for a hard requirement for JMK, making everyone able to get him, but JMK will be worse than all other GLs UNLESS you have Kam in the team, and then it gets supercharged to be the strongest team in game. This would effectively make KAM a soft requirement for JMK.

    No jedi will be the best team in the game because SEE exist, then there is Vader, Malak, trio, revan, bastila, there is literally no way for a jedi faction to be the best faction unless they drop the nerf hammer on SEE, like really drop the hammer likes of which we haven't seen before

    JMK’s meta will probably be Jedi council or galactic republic, and not Jedi. That’s my guess.


    🤦‍♂️ jedi council is not jedi??????????

    It’s a different tag, with different synergy. Like I said it’s just a guess.

    They are not likely to introduce a tag and a GL for that tag at the same time. The general idea for the GLs is that they can be used to bring together a faction and be the pinnacle of said faction.

    So Fallen Anakin (or Lord Vader or whatever he would be called) is out of the question since the only tag that he could have would be the sith tag and we already got SEE as the factions pinnacle.

    They could make him empire since that’s the point when the empire came into existence.

    Technically, yes. But it would be really lame imo to make FA the GL for the empire, that title should go to some new version of suit Vader (difficult to come up with a new version that would visually differentiate from the one we already got, we had that discussion before) or Palpatine (but we already got legendary Palp as the ep5+6 version).

    Well, if his ultimate transforms him from fallen anakin to vader in the suit.....

    He has to go crispy first and then suit up!

    As far as the other GL, I am saying that it's not Lord Vader. "Fallen Anakin" is not a thing. He goes Anakin, General of 501st and Jedi Knight (appointed to the Jedi Council) to Lord Vader, apprentice to Darth Sidious.

    SKLR: First Order
    Rey: Resistance
    JML: Jedi
    SEE: Sith

    GLOW: Galactic Republic?
    Maul: Scoundrel/Separatist?


    Bad Batch will be required for Maul.

    CAT.. is interesting.. I could see be required (ala JKL's farm) and thus have the harder farm but the bigger faction (Scoundrels) to pull from..

    Could this be the rise of the Gamorrean Guard???

    Bad batch have absolutely no tie to Maul what so ever, no way would they be required for Maul IF he was the next GL.

    That makes sense, but Jedi Master Kenobi isn’t a thing either. It’s live-action General Kenobi.

    GAS is also from the Clone Wars show and live-action JKA seems a younger version, inexperienced in the mass murder area. Plus he doesn’t have a scar (anymore), so live-action Scarface Tusken Slayer Anakin is on the table.

    I can understand how that appears but how does Bo-katan tie into GLOW, other than some appearances in the Clone Wars cartoon? Do you think she will be on the squad that GLOW eventually is on?

    I think it's more about monetization of a new character..

    Yeah everyone always likes to say they base the prerequisites off of pure monetisation by making us gear new characters or characters that the majority of the player base hasn’t geared but those characters always make some sort of sense to the GL’s they are required for. Bo-Katan might not have been Kenobi’s best friend but she certainly ties in to him. The love of his life’s sister, helped him escape mandalore it’s not a huge link but the link is there. Bad batch for Maul don’t have a single tie in, not one. Monetisation of a new character only goes so far there is always a link, no matter how small.

    I mean, by June 9th we could easily have a Bad Batch episode where they go to Tatooine and meet Kenobi...

    I agree there should be a link or a reason from the Canon that can should help explain why any character is required.

    I would like to point out that BB's history (before this current series) is with the Clone Wars, as much as Bo-katan started out as.

    Both are tied to this current round of GLs by being from the era they are referring to. Both are an option for CG to use to get the players to pay for.

    Because of the cadence they are using currently, BB is most likely not an option for GLOW


    BUT... for the DS GL, I could absolutely see that as an option.

    Would depend who the DS GL is. If it is Maul as you originally said then no. If it’s Anakin then maybe at a stretch but I honestly wouldn’t expect BB to be required for either and there isn’t any one else they could do that BB would make any sense for at this point in time. BB may be the new shiny thing for the moment but it doesn’t mean they’ll be needed for anything specific any time soon
  • Anakin may be “Vader” as soon as he cuts off Mace’s hand, but he’s still Anakin, and acts like it. Suited Darth Vader is slow, but inexorable, while Lord Vader / Fallen Anakin is much more... reckless, for one, but faster and more ferocious.

    Hmm... ferocity...

    Also, Lord Vader may be more accurate, but Fallen Anakin has a better ring to it. Possibly Sith Apprentice Anakin or something.

    I’m betting support to synergize with KAM’s unique.
  • I'm guessing one of his abilities or lead will be called high ground
  • Digging the photoshop, but I'd love a duel with Anakin for tier 3

    Thanks I hate it.
    The CGDF is no more. Now we hate CG because of conquest. Say hi in our Discord! https://discord.gg/AmStGTH

    The suspense is killing me!!!
    Can't wait to see round two tomorrow 😁

    So, they seem to be doing one GL per faction. Also, only duplicate requirements once.

    I think he will be Galactic Republic. Support.
    GAS r7 OR JKA r8 required. R7 or 8 GG or Jango for the opposing. GMY and Cody.
    Then, all the trash Galactic Republic Jedi.

    Wild cards are some bounty hunter from Clone Wars cartoon, since Bo is a req. and KAM if they put them in shipments.

    What do you all think?
  • I want Support, but no one in my guild believes CG can be that generous. He'd have godlike attack stats with KAM.
  • Bigger takeaway from the screenshot that is hiding in plain sight is that we will have a new Mace! that porkins has already taken to R7 I give you....

    General Mace Windu!!

    Porkins confirmed!
  • Do you honestly see that as a screenshot?
    Why would a GL PvE event have a timer?
    Also, notice the art style on the abilities not matching the style we have for literally EVERY ability.

    Then again, trolls will troll.
