I have seen this topic discussed many times, and I would like to share my own opinions. The following message is going toward players for the Empire and the Rebellion.
Okay, I know from personal experience that many squads are fighting at each other instead of working with each other, and there are some squads that are just... empty with no players filling in the roster. There are squads whose players may have had their differences with the Officers and/or Leaders, or they may not be getting along with each other or cooperating with each other right now, and that is how these squads normally start and then fall apart. We shouldn’t be fighting at each other. This game is supposed to be fun. We are the Rebellion/Empire. We should be working together to defeat the imperial/rebel forces and stop the Galactic Empire/Rebel Alliance. People delete the game half the time because of these issues, along many other issues in the app itself. I believe these issues are pointless and should not even be happening. If these issues continue to happen, it’ll make this game lose players, then, in some cases, lose players' love or interest in the "Star Wars" franchise, and then, God forbid, eventually allowing Disney to cancel this once fantastic game.
I said I, personally, have experienced all of these problems at once. Here’s an example; my experience. I, myself, came from a Level 50 Squad, called Jedi501st, whose ex-Leaders became power-hungry tyrants. They kept getting ticked off about the losses of our wars in the squad, then they both quit. In my opinion, there is definitely a fine line between enjoying a game and then being addicted to winning. Then me and my buddies, downmachine67 and his wife, angel, got sick of it and left that once brilliant squad have made our way by trying to create our own squad called 1stJediOrder. That didn’t work so well. That is an example of squads that are empty with no players filling in the roster. This frustrated angel, along with our problems from being in the old squad, which made her quit and delete the game. down still plays, though, don’t worry, and they both still love "Star Wars". Then he and I decided on joining this squad called RebelForceOne, and it has grown bigger and stronger this past summer since we joined, and yes, we’ve had our ups and downs (such as the main three players who started RebelForceOne taking a break and passing the squad onto us, but they do still play every once in a while, though. They have families and jobs, and I, myself, have school.),and losses from a couple of wars, but the primary reason for that is for players not coordinating and communicating with the Officers and Leaders, or not showing up at all, because they’re not loyal or active players. And some players we have had in the past say they’ll show up for war, and then they don’t. That is not how a team works. A squad is supposed to communicate, coordinate with each other, and work together. And when you say you’ll show up for something, you show up.
So, please, after all of this rambling from me, all I am asking is to stop the hate, fighting, arguing, bickering, etc., and help out new players. Help out your squadmates. If you have bases on both sides, then help each other out on both sides. Help out other squads who are struggling. Help out other squads that are empty earn some loyal and active players. This is the only way this game can still be successful, other than glitches and other problems. We can do this, guys. We just have to work together.
I have a few inspirational speeches I’d like to share with you all. The first is from Season 3, Episode 11 of "The Clone Wars", titled "Pursuit of Peace" (opening narration: “Peace shattered! Once-promising negotiations between the Republic and the Separatists are now in shambles following a droid suicide bombing on the capital city planet of Coruscant. As fear and anger prevail, the Senate overwhelmingly passes a bill to deregulate the banks, opening a gateway to additional troops, and an increase in fighting....”), in which Padmé Amidala speaks out against the senate to remind them who they are fighting the clone wars for; the people who are suffering. This is the real turning point of "The Clone Wars" and the Prequel Trilogy. The second speech is from Season 1, Episode 13 of "Star Wars Rebels", titled "Call to Action" (episode description: “The Ghost crew, having proved effective in their strikes against the Empire, win the attention of a powerful new enemy”). Ezra's broadcast was a message of rebellion delivered shortly after the raid on the communications tower in the year 4 BBY. Inspired by his parents, Mira and Ephraim, Ezra Bridger's broadcast encouraged bravery against the Galactic Empire, calling for the galaxy to resist its oppressive rule. Bridger's message of rebellion was transmitted from the hacked Imperial Communications Center on the planet Lothal, and it was sent across the galaxy until the Communications Center was destroyed by the order of Imperial Governor Wilhuff Tarkin. The third one is from Season 3, Episode 18 of "Star Wars Rebels" (plot description: “The Ghost crew must escort Senator Mon Mothma, now wanted by the Empire, to a meeting that can change the galaxy.”), in which Senator Mon Mothma resigns from the Senate because she spoke out against the Emperor, decides to fight and stop the Galactic Empire, and delivers a very inspirational speech that was witnessed by many people across the galaxy, and this is the real turning point for "Rebels", because the Rebellion was basically established after that speech. The fourth, and finally, the last one is a speech that I just ever so recently created using some quotes from "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" and "Star Wars Battlefront II". I think that this message and these four speeches all tie in together and wrap up very nicely. Thank you for reading this, have a great day, and God bless.
“Teckla Minnau. Teckla is one of my aides. Like so many of the people that we tell ourselves we're here to serve, Teckla lives in a district that rarely has electricity and running water as a result of the war. Her children can now only bathe every two weeks, and they have no light in which to read or study at night. The Republic has always funded these basic services, but now there are those who would divert the money to the war with no thought for what the people need to survive. If not for people like Teckla and her children, who are we fighting for? My people, your people, all of our people-this war is meant to save them from suffering, not increase it. I support our brave soldiers, whether they come from the clone factories or from any of the thousands of systems loyal to the Republic, but if we continue to impoverish our people, it is not on the battlefield where Dooku will defeat us, but in our own homes. Therefore, it is our duty and our responsibility to preserve the lives of those around us by defeating this bill.”
—Padmé Amidala to the Galactic Senate
“We have been called criminals, but we are not. We are rebels, fighting for the people, fighting for you. I'm not that old, but I remember a time when things were better on Lothal. Maybe not great, but never like this. See what the Empire has done to your lives, your families, and your freedom? It's only gonna get worse…unless we stand up and fight back. It won't be easy. There will be loss and sacrifice. But we can't back down just because we're afraid. That's when we need to stand the tallest. That's what my parents taught me. That's what my new family helped me remember. Stand up together. Because that's when we're strongest—as one.”
—Ezra Bridger to the people of Lothal
“This is Senator Mon Mothma. I have been called a traitor for speaking out against a corrupt Galactic Senate. A Senate manipulated by the sinister tactics of the Emperor. For too long I have watched the heavy hand of the Empire strangle our liberties, stifling our freedoms in the name of ensuring our safety. No longer! Despite Imperial threats, despite the Emperor himself, I have no fear as I take new action. For I am not alone. Beginning today we stand together as allies. I hereby resign from the Senate to fight for you, not from the distant hall of politics but from the front lines. We will not rest until we bring an end to the Empire, until we restore our Republic! Are you with me?”
―Mon Mothma to the various rebel cells
If the Empire has this kind of power, what chance do we have? What chance do we have? The question is "what choice." Run, hide, plead for mercy, scatter your forces. You give way to an enemy this evil with this much power, then you condemn the galaxy to an eternity of submission. The time to fight is now! Saw Gerrera used to say one fighter with a sharp stick and nothing left to lose can take the day. They’ve no idea we’re coming. They’ve no reason to expect us. If we can make it to the ground, we’ll take the next chance. And the next. On and on until we win... or the chances are spent. We fight so others can live. And if we die, it better be for the same reason. We’re going to win this war, not by fighting what we hate, but saving what we love. Contact the Resistance. Tell them this is just the beginning. The First Order is still coming. But we have hope. Rebellions are built on hope. People like you are the reason hope can prevail. And hope is the reason we are going to win.
May the Force be with you.
