I decided to be a sucker and buy a Chromium 8 pack. Last time they gave me Ugnaught and Grand Moff Tarkin, so I probably should have learned my lesson:

3* Cad Bane, 3* Sun Fac, aaaand Snowtrooper who turned into 7 shards. Also enough shards to unlock 2* Kit Fisto and 2* Mob Enforcer.

I'm excited about Cad, Sun, and Kit and I know I'll need to buy more packs to promote them higher; but are they any good once promoted?

Edit: Hot drat, I just got Ahsoka Tano from a Bronzium pack! She turned into 15 shards.

Cad Bane is one of the worst guys in the game, Kit can be good but yea you need to blow 4 figures to get him there, and Sun is new so not tons of info but looks like he will be good

Found a bearable non Barriss GW strategy... Ben leader, daka, hrs, Lumi, DPS. Daka is my only first string character, anyone else can die and I don't have to restart. Gets through the first 6-8 nodes, then swap in replacement-upgrades, ending with RG.

Ben leader with hrs generate a ton or extra attacks, stuns and ability block and dodge chance mean you don't need 3 healers or 5 Jedi. Kill DPS then sidious then supports.

Gear X Greedo is amazing. Get your DPS to gear X asap for sick protection.

So a Bariss led team with Lumi, QGJ, Dakka, and RG is doing really well for me. I was playing with it in GW and it just refused to ever get below 50% health. I'm trying it in arena and so far same thing.

From what you guys are saying about high level Galactic War, it sounds like I should enjoy myself while I can (I'm level 65). The key seems to be having a good B Team but I guess that can be expensive to maintain.

Yes I meet Sid in every battle, and yes he loving SUCKS. He's the perfect counter to my Jedi heal team. I feel like he's just a little overpowered, like maybe his dodge is too high or his healing immunity lasts too long. It's another reason why I love my IG-86 - he can usually gently caress Sids poo poo up.

This game really needs some sith-killers to counter Sid, Vader, Doku etc. Maybe a new droid like R2-D2 can be an anti-sith healer debuff-remover type.

Yeah, I think they said they fixed the door switch dodge, but I guess it's back now...or...something. It dodged an attack.

I've been thinking forever that there should be two Jedis with anti-Sith abilities: Anakin and Jedi Luke (whenever he's added as playable). Think about it, before Anakin became Sith, he regularly beat Ventress (although usually had to save someone instead of capturing her) and he beats (and kills) Dooku. He would've brought down the Emperor, except he became Vader instead. Jedi Knight Luke is eventually able to beat Vader in a lightsaber battle, which is probably the first lightsaber battle Vader has EVER lost.

Here's how I think it should work: Sith advantages are reversed. If the Emperor attacks Anakin/Luke, they get +35% dodge. Vader can't dodge their basic or resist their debuffs.


Also, raid strategy, I just ran QGJ, Phasma, Poggle, Resistance Pilot, and Barriss, and they landed 250k. This isn't my highest damage squad (that award goes to TM manipulation ewoks -- despite dealing no damage per hit), but it did an impressive amount of damage. If you have GS, he's way better than RP, and while any healer can go in the Barriss spot, she's best, especially because she can "heal" over the immune debuff, which makes it a lot easier to stay above 50%. Anyways, once he gets down to the turn where he's going to eat someone, I use Poggle's Off up, blow up the door, get attacks in, use Phasma's advantage (I know they already have guaranteed crit -- this is more for 50% TM), get more attacks in, and then get whatever attacks in before he eats someone. Then I go until right before he eats the next person -- if the switch is up at this point, I repeat (to my best ability -- down one at this point). If the switch is not quite up, I try to evac my best guys.

If Sid didn't feel op against a 5 Jedi heal squad he would be pointless. That's exactly why he exists.

Poggle with phasma and barriss is a complete waste, you would do more damage with a third (50% more than 2!) DPS.

Since becoming Vader he's fought about three lightsaber battles in total, so that's not as impressive as it sounds. He's even 1:1 against Luke.

When (if) we do get Jedi Luke I imagine he'll be close to impossible for the average player to attain anyway, like new Han.

Hmm, actually, on further reading, it's unclear how many Jedi survived the purge in canon. However, this game doesn't fully exist in canon, so it doesn't matter (not all of the characters used in this game are canon).

I'm at 2 million gold (had more from GW, spent it on Eeth). I currently have Phasma at 170/85 (this will be 185/85 -- 7* equivalent -- tomorrow), IG-88 at 85/85 and Asajj at 100/100 (total = 3 mil), so I'm already basically in debt. Tomorrow I will hit 78 (~1.6-2 million to level my arena squad + GW A-list). Additionally, I have JC at 89/100, Rey at 98/100 (WOOOOOO, thanks double shards), and Poe at 88/100 (there's another 3 million gold). Finally, I also have ST Han and Fives at over 65/65...so that's another 500k I could spend, but they're both level 1 G 1, so what's the point? 2 million - 8.5 million = negative 6.5 million gold. That's not including the gold I could spend on leveling 7* (or soon to be 7*) heroes (~10 million).

When we talk about a late game credit crunch, this is what we mean. You have a few heroes hit 7* right around the same time, and you then have to decide who is more important. Rey is getting hers ASAP because arena. JC will get his in about 7 days when Yoda is live, and then Yoda will get his 7*, so that's another million I forgot to factor in.

Back before the level 80 increase, I accidentally purchased credits with crystals (I had saved up like 3k). I'm not even that mad about it, because there are far worse things I could spend crystals on, and you really don't get many credits out of using crystals on energy (if I bought 3 200-crystal Cantina refreshes -- on separate days -- and spent it on level 6 missions, I would get 150k additional credits. Probably a better deal than just buying credits, but that's how little you get in the way of credits for energy).

One of the things they nail in the new show is that Vader is a slow but powerful badass.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BXoJeLDyVBY
(Vader shows up around the one minute mark)

I would actually highly recommend both shows to anyone interested in seeing lightsaber fights and learning who half the characters in this game are.

Also regarding Vader vs Luke, I believe it was mentioned in the RotJ novelization specifically that Vader had essentially already lost once he started feeling compassion towards Luke and that his wavering faith in the Dark Side weakened him pretty considerably. Which is why the emperor was pushing so hard for him to either turn Luke or kill him.

I don't know if there is a large enough for this post.

The good news is you'll see him less and less as you keep on leveling, since he falls off hard and eventually becomes pretty drat weak except as a specific counter to the exact squad you're describing. Thus less people want to go all in on hard countering that one team comp, thus you'll have an easier time of it

I got in basically ground-floor on a fresh shard (just hit 60), and the whales are hilariously obvious. Just about everyone in the top #50 are regular F2P (or mostly F2P) players like me, have mostly 5*/6* and the occasional 7*, mostly G7/G8 - a nice even playing field. Then there's the guy with 7* Grievous and just about every other character at least 5*, including 7* Leia and 6* Wedge.

Since the Disney purchase, canon is considered to be the seven movies and the animated shows Clone Wars and Rebels. Which means that HK-47 is the only non-canon character in the game..maybe the Jedi Guardian and Jedi Consular since they are from KOTOR as well, but they are pretty generic.
