Are you finding the Rancor any good? I have two and a halve hours of catching time, but the rancor is just so bad it's a really low prio for me.

A level 1 Rancor is like a dewback's turd... possibly the most useless thing to arrive since the LIN... in fact shame on them for wasting such a good opportunity for something actually good to come out in 2018...

But hey ho... looks cool.

nonono my friend,
Overnight some high-brow high-powered but tactically moronic attacker, after wasting his complete airfleet of medships, to keep his jetswarm alive, getting to 49%, dropped his Strix Rancor on my Troop Transport which was already damaged; it chipped off a few flakes of paint from said transporter before succumbing to my GR troops and he topped it off by deploying his deka against it thereby eking out a 50% victory... awesome performance, :lol:

That being said, that is exactly what the beast is good for -at l1 where most have it-; for killing that defenceless building in a far corner or for luring troops away.
My Strix will reach 10 later this week and I look forward to its tactical possibilities...

Hmm... I always leave a troop or two back for just that thing... but yeah get your point. It's actually quite comical how long it takes to take down one building hahahah

I've considered using it as a drop ship... but tbh I'm a kubaz / Vader guy... I don't have the patience for that !

Don't get me wrong... i'm really glad they are trying new stuff, but quite frankly the way it's been implemented is appalling... a level 1 Rancor is fucking shit. Period.

It's useful to drop on IDT troops. Bam, one shot, all gone. And you can drop it in the midst of buildings, so it can be used to pull the SC or bait hard to reach sonics.

My main reasons for concentrating on Upgrading the SBT to Max Level 10 (currently) are these:

  1. Quickest Recapture Time.
  2. As posted, one more additional Unit / Tool I can use in my PvP / War Attacks if desired and if used then (see #1).
  3. Eventually we will see an "event" to unlock more Rancor Creatures and upgrade them also and to make them useful (see #1).
It also gave my Base Repair Droids something to do, getting harder every day with less and less Non-Prestige Upgrades to be accomplished.

Continuing the Conversation...

NOTICE: Highest Conflict Medals / Gears Seen (So Far)

I ran into this Base while Scouting on Tatooine.

Maxed Prestige Base - Empire - Tatooine

(Click here to view LARGER image)

:!: INFO: Conflict Medals / Gears awarded are based upon Matchmaking Algorithm and the same Base seen by 2 different Players may show different VALUES for Conflict Medals / Gears.

My HQ 11/Prestige Account sees a lot of other Prestige Bases in the range of 1005 to 1065 Gears but the 1110 Gears shown in the Screenshot was the highest I have seen so far.

:?: Could this be the Max or has anyone see something higher?

Niloc might give more. Depends if base score or medals are more important in determining conflict medals awarded. DarthTyranus is very close to the base score cap, but doesn't have as many medals as Niloc. Niloc is on Tako if you want to go check. ;)

The rancor is pretty useless! They really need to provide a LOT more opportunity to upgrade the levels of the rancors and it would have been nice if they let you use the samples in your inventory, that way it would be more useful while you upgrade them.
