  • If you're player level 78 and your squad is not up to that then you're doing it wrong...

    I'm curious if Omega will now have both a star and level requirements? Last time I wasn't able to do Omega each day and a few times that I was able to do it, I did it with 1 full guy and a few stragglers that were barely at the star count and only a few levels. If that's the case, I'll likely be able to only get a handful of mats. I hope it's more open and only looks at levels and not toon types. I'd be okay with that as I have 8 level 78's at the moment.

    I'm just saving my credits until the event just in case the events are character specific.

  • Will all the important events be geared towards players that started playing in December?
    Let me explain, when the omega event first came, players at the 70th level could collect a good amount of omegas. Now the same event is geared towards level 78 players.
    A similar approach was taken with the yoda event. The earlier event was accessible to level 70 players. The later was geared towards level 80. Notice I am not discussing whether of doable for lower levels, just the target segment of the events seem to be older players.

    It is a tricky issue, because the events need to be challenging to the older players, but I think is short-sighted to ignore the younger players. To always design repeating events towards the older players is not good for the long term viability of the game.

    @Yudoka If there was a 78 requirement, then check if you have 5x78 light and 5x78 dark side because looking at pictures of events seem to be clear separation ...

    Omegas are end game content. Why does it surprise people that they're meant for players near the end.

    Omega is literally, the last letter of the Greek alphabet.
    Symbolic for last.
    As in, not for someone just now getting into the upper lvls.
    In all games, there's always better stuff the higher you go. That's the whole point of why you want to level up.

    They're giving us something cool that they don't have to and yet people complain. Omega's are definitely end-game content, previously they just kind of threw us a bone with the prior event but it make sense to only offer this at a higher level. There are things to be upset about in this game and there are things to just say "thank you EA" for, the Omega event is a "thank you EA."
  • I think they should restrict it so that you have to be level 78. Make it harder and tougher, and those that complain can either work to level up or quit.

    The last event included segments that could be completed for credits and other ability mats for people under level 70.

    Omega mats can't be used until level 72 at the earliest. It sounds like you will still be able to attempt the event at level 72, it'll just be tuned for level 78 so it might be a bit harder for you. That's OK.

    In my opinion, levels are the least important factor in character strength anyway. If you have decently starred and geared characters that are eligible for the event, I think you'll probably still be able to do it in a few tries.

    And if it's not, I'm sure people will complain like with Yoda and get it made easier for them, because they deserve whatever their hearts desire.

    Well last time the event featured incredibly easy battles, so they could make it a lot harder and still have it be pretty easy.

    If that's the case, I'd be good for Light but not dark. It does say "tuned" to that level rather than an entry requirement. If they no longer do the "here's a list of characters you need AND they have to be this many stars" then I'm good. I have plenty of guys on both sides that are 6 or 7 stars but not yet 78.

    Yeah right? Making the battles more challenging than they were doesn't take much to do I would imagine.

    The issue is that this is not better stuff than was offered before, it is the same stuff that was accessible to players of certain level then, not accessible to players of the same level now. I'm not arguing about the benefits of being an earlier player, you should get higher level things. I am saying newer players should be able to progress at the same rate than older players. Omegas are vital to keep competitive.

    Most games make things accessible to players at certain level, when you get that level, you get the chance to get it. Older players get it first, and get better stuff later.

    You can project this trend CG is setting, and next omega event will be accessible to players in level 90, because it needs to be challenging to them, and then once more those who started later won't have access to it.

    I'd have no problem with that as long as we don't have to select from a small group of characters like last time. I don't know about you but I don't have the credits to bring any anyone up to 78 just for this event.

    The last omega event was geared towards players that sat at the level cap for extended periods of time.
    A minor consolation considering all the xp that just disappeared the whole month I sat at lvl 70. If the cap wasn't there. I would have been over lvl 75 at least. Lots of xp I'll never get back.

    Since everyone was locked at 70, it was end content then, but now the end is further, so they, once again, put it where it belongs. At the end.

    You're spreading your limited resources too far apart and among to many most likely. Your main 5 characters should always be upto date with your player level. You then have enough room to work in maybe 3 side projects until reaching level cap or you see a significant profitable gap where some slight progress can be added to a few others. Reach the level cap and star cap with a main squad the rest will come along after that.

    Yeah, I do hope it's not restricted to specific characters or that could be incredibly difficult. I only have 7 characters I can use if that's the case.
  • Lol last omega event I was able to do the event fully even if it chose my lvl 40 7* characters in lvl 5 gear. Idk what the whining is about on the difficulty. I suppose the only ppl complaining are the ones unlucky to not be even at that gear lvl. Honestly any easier and everyone would have it. It was made for end game to begin with. The fact that I was able to complete it with just those characters proves how easy it was. Unless you got crap characters that are 7*. If that's the case that was not EA fault exactly.you guys made the choice to choose a character that easily shows on these forums to be not worth it.

    It won't be like last time. The difficulty has been raised for level 78 characters.

    Another disappointed news.
    No communication, everyone is broke with yoda event and leveling char for raid.
    And what... another event which requieres lot of money.

    I now the goal of this game is making money, but i think the ratio "want to sell stuff" vs "fun we provide" is definitly against player.
