I agree with you on the shard shop, but there is absolutely no need to spend $$ on the Yoda event. It's reoccurring, so do what you can now and spend time farming the appropriate characters for when it pops up again in a few weeks.
Highly highly highly doubt it. Some shards are easier to farm. The exchange ratio will reflect rarity. Do you really think you can get 15 Lumi shards everyday by clearing GW, and trade that for 15 FOTP shards??
Generally speaking, it doesn't matter if you are a whale or not. No one is getting the new character quickly. The exchange rate could be ok but only 1 refresh per day. You are talking months, not days to unlock the exclusive. And that's if he is always in the list for purchase.
This only works if you have 7 star character's correct. If so it may be a wile before I get to use this feature since shard collection takes a wile even if you spend RL money. My highest star character is a 5
I know you want it to be a surprise. But is there any chance you can at least let us know say... If it's a jedi or sith or neither? People would go to the shard shop then still hold off in case the new char is something they want. This info doesnt really help
@EA_Jesse Someone in another thread said that you said the shard shop exclusive would take less shards than other heroes, can you confirm? Otherwise I am looking at trading in 220 days of clearing GW for the SSE Hero....bit much IMO.
The exchange rate would have to be at the purchase level. Excess shards all have the same value, which is nothing. In addition just because you can get a lumi shard from gw does not mean you did, you could have also gotten it from a chromium. Making that lumi shard intrinsically less valuable because of where it COULD come…
Problem with your "shard shop" is that you can only use it once every 24hrs. The drop on packs is honestly crappy and should have a way put into place that doesn't give you same shards and same characters time after time. You have made the yoda event so most people have to spend hundreds to get him. I spend a lot on this…
