For the 6th round of “deploy four hero units”, is it any unit or just the one shown? The image showed Han... and the counter did not go up if I used Chewie (with Falcon skin on Tat). The round didn’t last long enough once I noticed. Wondering if anyone else saw this. Maybe I misread the goal.

Any hero should work. Could be the 'skin'. Restart?

You can deploy any hero.

This thread touches some different topics that I wanted to contribute to, but being new to the forum, I'm not sure about the rules for flooding the thread with individual posts, so I'm writing all these replies in one post. If you don't bother reading the whole thing, please at least check if I quoted you. :)

Worst case scenario for you being in Group B is that you get the same results you would have in Group A. One crate will give you the same rewards as two crates in Group A, but in Group A, you would have to log in twice as often to start research, spend double the time researching, meaning a higher need to time your research carefully, and AT LEAST as much time earning EP as you do in Group B, since you'd need the same amount of EP but meet a cap halfway. So you should be happy! :D

Boog wrote:Wait, if you take down the shield over the factory on hoth, you get an uplink?

Just to clarify: Taking down the factory building (HQ) on any of the Factory Outposts earns you a star, just like destroying the HQ of any other base, and one star is enough to capture a FO. You only need 50% or destroying the HQ. Since the Hoth FO is a shield generator, units like the Ithorian Infiltrator or the AT-AT will target it.
The battle does not, however, earn you an uplink, as in one of the 45 points you can earn in the Squad War. You only get uplinks from Defensive Outposts (enemy player bases).

DeathStriker wrote:Boog - with Ithorian Infilitrators / Kubaz Invaders the order of AI is:

  1. Shield Generators (active or not)... when gone then...
  2. Resources... when gone then...
  3. All Structures Except Turrets... when gone then...
  4. Turrets
SO... One Ithorian / Kubaz to take down Hoth Shield then (since there is no Resources) you can use 1 or 2 more for the Factory.

The Hoth FO factory IS a shield generator, so it would be targeted first even if there were resources. This means that the Elite AT-AT also takes the Hoth FO very easily, as it goes straight for the factory.

Shelendil wrote:I believe you get all the rewards the instant you open the crate. The rest is just for show.

As someone who keeps a text document journal of my game stats including data fragment, I can confirm this. Every time I've had a crash while opening a crate before getting to the data fragments, I can check my Research Lab and find some data fragments I haven't accounted for.

mkenobi wrote:I've noticed that frags for the Sullustan Sniper were rare to find in the Elite Crates for my 3 Rebel accounts. Same for Rodian Sniper for my Imperial account. I think 2 or 3 crates had frags for them in more than 12 crates collected for each account. I couldn't upgrade Rodian for my Level 9 Imperial base and Sullustan for my Rebel level 9 base, but the last crates opened for my Level 8 Rebel base and Level 7 Rebel base gave the necessary frags to unlock the Sullustan for both. Then I'm happy.


I had a similar slightly disappointing experience with Rodian Recon Sniper data fragments. Out of 16 bonus crates (Group A), I had 2 with 3 data fragments and 2 with 6 data fragments for the RRS. Not horrible, but not nearly as many as the other two Naval rewards. All in all, the 16 crates earned me:
44x Naval Officer
34x Imperial Starfighter Pilot
24x Johhar Kessen
20x VT-49 Decimator
18x Rodian Recon Sniper
16x Cold-weather MHC
16x Shock Trooper
12x TIE Advanced
(That's an average of 11.5 data fragment per crate.)
I'm now at 28/50 for RRS level 5.

Any idea why this is only for HQ5 and lower? I was wondering what was going on when a squadmate told me he had claimed Shock Trooper samples and I could see no claim page. At least this solves the mystery!

In my experience (on two accounts), this bug only pertains to the "receive" objectives. The 50 EP from "receive" objectives cause an error and are lost EVERY TIME, while EP from "donate" objectives have NEVER given me an error.

Boog wrote:That's weird, in prior events I had many of the units maxed, but as long as I had at least one not maxed out, I got frags for the units that needed them.

Yeah, this is a different criterion from what we are used to see when we bought the old Premium Crates in the Store or when we get crates in Squad Wars: if you have one or more units maxed out, you get frags for the units you still need to maximize, using the criterion by elimination. Only when you don't have anything else to upgrade, you get the credits.


There are different pools that each reward in a crate is drawn from:
https://papajessie.github.io/swcpy/lc_e ... ind_b.html

One pool contains exclusively the Naval Officer and Imperial Starfighter Pilot. Since this is the Naval Assault event, it makes sense to guarantee a Naval Assault-related draw. Only if you've maxed BOTH of these do you get credits instead of that draw. The other draws have more units/equipment to choose from, but not ALL kinds of units and equipment are obtainable in this specific event. If you've maxed out all the ones in this event, you get credits instead. I think that's fair as well, so that one event can't max you out on anything and everything.
Squad War victory crates, by the way, also draws from a pool of only 5 units and now 4 (iirc) kinds of equipment. Once you have those maxed, you won't earn data fragments from Squad Wars either, until they add more variation to the pool (as they recently did with the equipment).

Yeah, green planets are a breeze for me, Absentminded Grind Heaven. I use an AT-ACT and 8 jumps, deploy strategically but then don't pay that much attention to the battle. Sometimes I need to use a TIE Striker or a few more jumps, but it's an easy 3 stars every ~7 minutes. Not many dev bases for me these last few months, though.

The "reason" for this is that HQ 5 and Lower don't have the Armory which is needed to get Data Frags offered to HQ 6+

Thanks for posting your "observations". I still reboot if I receive EP from Squad Related Daily Objectives and I am not currently doing Objective Research. If, as you say, I don't lose any EP from "Donate Unit Actions" that is great, but I err on the side of caution so that I don't complete a PvP Attack, see EP rewarded and thinking I have enough to Start Research only to see the dreaded 6503 Error.

FINALLY... Welcome to the Forum! :D

Thank you! In truth, I've been here for a long time, lurking in the shadows and listening to your conversations... Just opened an account to start talking now. ;)

I suppose that's fair, but don't lower level players get something else in the crates instead of data fragments anyway?

It should be safe to at least try clicking "start research" and se if it works or if it forces you to restart rather than just restarting anyway. Yesterday, I needed 205 EP. First I got 150 EP from a battle, then 50 from a "receive" objective, and then the last 5 from another objective. Then I remembered once again that "receive" is bugged, and I restarted, expecting to lose 50 EP, but I only lost 5. It must have counted the full 50 from the last objective I finished even though it went over the cap.
However... This might not even matter anymore -- see my next reply! (Edit)

EDIT:

BREAKING NEWS:

Durasteel objective EP bug fixed! (or so it seems - test if it works for the rest of you so we know for sure!)

I just reached the EP I needed for starting my next event research by completing the "receive X capacity of troops" Durasteel objective and succesfully started research without an error! Restarted my game in disbelief, but the research is still going!

No error message, no EP lost. The "donate" objectives never caused the bug for me, only "receive" objectives, which did it every time until now. I'm dreading that I'll get the error message when research finishes in 8 hours... But either way, something's definitely changed.

It would be good if they have fixed it. I'll check this later.
I wrote a support ticket for each of these 3 EP events and their latest response was feeding me some rubbish trying to make out it was an issue with my device, not the game itself (see attached). I pointed out that exactly the same issue happens on my main iOS account and on my second Android account, therefore surely it was highly unlikely a device issue.

EVENT STATUS:

I am in the 10 Hour Research for Objective #24 on all 3 of my Accounts. Tomorrow I will complete Chapter Objective #4 (Objective #25 / Main Objective) and then it will be on to those lucurative Elite Event Crates and finding out what Group I am in on all 3 of my Accounts (I am expecting no change but anything is possible).
