mentioned an upcoming Dev QA that he's working on coordinating with the devs to answer some community questions. I figured I would kick it off with some questions and I'll add any reply questions to the OP:
**Note to EA/CG: I've tagged those asking the questions so that you can scroll down to the original question, which in many cases offers more information on the question; please check them, and thank you for taking the time to help inform the community**
1. Can we get a detailed description including numbers for various buffs and debuffs in the game? Also, their max amounts and diminishing returns and do the buffs/debuffs stack? (Defense up/ down, etc.) Many people are confused about dodge, which shows 0 @Harmson @StirringOwl
3. Can we get an analysis of the effects of other stats including speed dodge, tenacity, potency, etc. (see response below for more detail into the question.) @Top_Quark
4. how about information on any heroes with pending bug fixes such as leia.
5. Let's put the AI arguments to rest with some details on the AI system and any differences between it and player controlled. Are there any plans to revamp this system.
6. I know you can't give detailed dates or schedule but can you go over the roadmap for improvements on existing
features and bug fixes? What are the priorities for existing fixes/improvements.
8. When will the next crystal sub pack be available? Will they be recurring or will they only be available for a limited time. @cosmicturtle333
9. Are guilds/alliances coming soon? (roadmap, also ties in with #5.) @Scorpion1980 @Darth_Allycode @StirringOwl
12. Any customization plans for future updates? (I'm assuming character customizations) @Scorpion1980
13. Care to share any of the upcoming heroes, even if you can't give a date? Such as Yoda, Grievous, etc.? @Finalsalute
14. Any upcoming character balance/adjustments? People are wondering about Mace Windu being generally weak and not really living up to his lore expectations?
15. Lots of questions on balance/QoL from various other threads
- Count Dooku - Do devs like his current state? Buff? Nerf?
- First Order Tie Pilot
- Mace Windu
16. Any plans to tweak, adjust the Galactic Warfare Table?
17. Any news or hints about upcoming challenges and keycard battles?
18. Can we get approximate drop rates:
- Chromium Heroes
- Cantina Shards
- Hard Mode Shards
- Challenge Material Drops
19. When can we expect to see action taken against exploiters/hackers and what actions are planned? (7* Vader, etc)
20. User Interface Tweaks
- Crafting and Ability Material Scroll Window
- GW character Selection (sorting options, etc.)
- Character management window (main screen)
21. Can we get more diversity in the shipments, to give us more exciting options and so that we aren't just buying them to finish the daily quest. @Pindasauskanon
22. Can the bronzium drops be updated to be level-specific? There are many low-level gear pieces that I have over 200 of. The credit drops (500, 700, 1000) are so low as to be meaningless to anyone who has played more than 5 minutes. @Qeltar
23. Would it be possible to have a test arena with n rewards but a place to test out builds without spending energy or crystals?
24. It was mentioned previously that there would be something to do with excess shards. Could we get more info there? @Merkur0m
25. How far down the backlog is cross-platform play? Any chance of it being moved up? @CrossXcalibur
26. Any details in the upcoming ships system? @Darivon
27. Is there a plan to improve the descriptions/tooltip a for leader abilities or an official reference for these? Many ask about how a leadership skill works and the amount of effect. @Adorme
28. Are there any plans to add skills/abilities to the heroes as they gain levels between 60-70 (and beyond)? Why does Ventress have 5 skills and no one else does? @cosmicturtle333 @Breetai
30. Why do heroes require gear that doesn't affect their important stats? (life steal for example?) @StirringOwl
31. Where is Darth Jar Jar @StirringOwl
32. Are there any plans to improve/revamp the character pack process? This was pretty crazy and created some needless drama? @StirringOwl
33. When will the locked icons in the cantina be revealed (unused tables) @StirringOwl
34. Will challenges be updated to drop more purple gear at the higher levels? @Breetai
35. Are there plans to vary/improve the gear in the shipments? @MLGebra
37. How many heroes should we expect to see in the "endgame"? Currently there are 71 heroes, how many more are planned and will be released before this ends? @MLGebra
38. Any details on the forthcoming shard exchange? @Elyndria
39. Will there be special events (special, as in non-recurring)? @Elyndria
40. Any plans to improve PVP, the PVP AI, or introduce live PVP? @Elyndria
41. Any plans to introduce co-op content? @Elyndria
42. Will chromium only players ever be farmable (QGJ) @Elyndria
43. Is QGJ leadership ability working as intended. Many players report that the speed doesn't increase until after the first turn, reducing its effectiveness dramatically.
44. Will tanks ever become "tanks" with maybe a damage reduction in taunt or something to slightly prolong their life when focused?
45. Are there any plans to implement a replay system as seen in some other games so that we can adjust to how the AI plays our build? @Andrew
46. What are CGs thoughts on the less than stellar customer support from EA? In the times I have dealt with them they have been abysmal. I've spent 4 emails back and forth with support so he could determine if I bought the app on the App Store successfully.
That's my start, anyone else?
