    We all know there will be no consideration from CG about our feedback. There will be no rollback of the nerfs. There will be no reconsideration of Executor relic reqs. There will be no accelerated ship farming. There will be no ship squad tabs. There will be no changes to gear economy that benefit players. There will be no acknowledgment that this thread even exists, much less a response to any concern raised within.

    There will only be what has always been: naked, unrestrained, uncurbed, unstoppable, ever-growing blatant greed.

    Sadly all true :'(

    I want to be excited for the new characters, speed grand arena, etc.... but this Road Ahead was depressing.... nerfing GAS, Vader, JKL, etc. sucks!!!

    Speed Grand Arena sounds fun!

    Sounds about as fun as watching Jeff bezos go to "space". It's a game mode just for influencers and CG

    Yeah i don't like watching sports either because i'm not the one playing

    Overall: A Very Disappointing Road Ahead

    I like that the Executor is coming to the game as its my favorite capital ship in Star Wars, but the 2 R8 cost is utterly ridiculous, especially considering the difficulty of getting R8 resources.

    Maul and Lord Vader - Let those who are excited for them be excited for them. I am ambivalent.

    I get the rationale behind some of the impending nerfs, but I absolutely loathe the release of R9 when there is still so much difficultly in getting R8.

    Lastly, the reason I call it disappointing is that there was nothing new event-wise announced (except characters). No new Assault Battles, no Ship Assault Battles, no new resource events (Galactic Bounties III), no easing of the gear grind, nothing. Just two extremely hard to get characters and a new Conquest character. In other words, nothing that was announced eases the journey or does anything to make things fun (you could argue Conquest 7 changes, but we will have to see).

    So I consider it a massive disappointment.

    So, after reading all the comments here, I wonder if the Devs will ever read them or if they care about our opinion.
    It even makes me wonder if money was the only motivation, these changes would still make sense, given that quite a lot of people have already stated that they would stop spending in the game.
    I'm a F2P player still working my way towards my first GL, so I'm not sure if these changes impact me that much. I know I probably will never be competitive in the arena, and I haven't yet faced GLs in GAC. But it is disheartening to see the Devs ignoring the opinion of the players represented here, especially those of us F2P
  • Good format pretty lousy content. There is not enough gear available to exchange for the levels of relics needed. If you want to develop characters only available to MAW just say so but for many of us that "only" contribute a couple hundred to the game this really is a kick to the jewels with absolutely zero relief for massive gear and relic material crunch. Truly a sad day for SWGOH non-Krakens

    As power levels increase (r8 to r9) we get new sources of gear / materials to make it easier
  • What was great about this game years ago was that while cash was (rightfully so) king, being smart and strategic could keep you competitive. Now those people are long gone and CG is saying if you’re not a kraken we’d kindly like you to stop taking up server space.
  • There really needs to be a players advocacy department at CG and if there already is one they should be ashamed.
  • Why do I have a feeling a lot of this is gonna be reverted?

    Huh?
  • Well, GLEE was a challenge/joke from TVF. But now that I have a similar challenge from you, I'll try to come up with something similarly whimsical, silly, and fun for the soon to be renamed LV.

    I've got nothing yet, mind, but I'll work on it.

    GLLDVASF sounds good.

    If CG does a follow up post on how TW and GAC matchmaking will take in account number of GLs, then some of this anxiety over needing non GL counters will be reduced. Otherwise, there will be even worse guild sandbagging for favorable TW matchups, and hard working guilds with less GLs will never catch a break.

    First time poster and made an account for that purpose. A bit of context, I have been playing off and on for a number of years, spent money (not huge amounts, $15 crystal packs here and there) and only really started recently focusing on collecting teams as opposed to random characters that I thought were cool. Have only recently cracked 1mil GP. I know that I have been inefficient, thats on me (I only say this as I am sure someone will lock on to this and use the argument "thats not CG's fault" to dismiss my argument).

    I don't have a GL, and don't really plan on getting one anytime soon. I am matched against people who are far stronger then me in GAC and SA so mostly place teams for currency and start an arena fight and forfeit just to make the daily quest.

    Others have pointed out very valid reasons for why excluding GLs from abilities/status-effects is bad so I don't want to rehash them here.

    The reason why this disappoints me, and a few people have touched on this, is that the reasoning "we want GA's to be mini raid bosses" completely discounts the time, energy and effort put into farming characters to be able to complete a journey and then to build a team around them and gear all the toons up to be an equivalent or higher level in order to compete. Shouldn't they? Nerfing the characters that can fight GL's, that are already gated behind similar requirements (though not as severe, to be sure) "coz muh GL" seems to be, ignorant at best and at worst intellectually dishonest.

    I do hope they keep doing the video format though. I really liked it, yes its dad-jokes galore and it was unpolished but overall I did enjoy it.
  • Remember when they said we were getting a shipload of content? It was a puzzle the whole time. You were suppose to remove “load of” and replace the p with a t. Well done no one came up with that answer.
  • Other than the new characters, absolutely garbage!
    If we at least got some relief for gear and other relic levels I'd be fine with r9 but nope, just stockpiling the gear climb!
    And basically negating any GL counters is the grossest thing I've ever seen any devs do in any game! Absolutely disgusting!
