If it worked with pilots, then it would be a different story, but I almost never carry tie fighters, and can't afford to use a full 13 armory UC in the event that I have one or two in my air loadout.

The only times I've used the brute skin have been when I was going after a tie fighter crate. Tomorrow, I max out my crate frags, so I really won't have much reason to cook 7 ties at a time anymore.


That's nuts... 900 EP for an elite crate with one reward and a bunch of useless credits......................... I'm out. That's just ridiculous.

F00k the frag pool.

Friends don't let friends upgrade to level 10. This shit is way easier at level 8.

Unless you sandbag medals, it's actually easier to play at L10 than L8, as you don't have to deal with bases much higher level than yours. Playing at L10, you have no issue beating up on L10 dev bases for points, for conflict and event crates. And on defense, noobs will continue to plant at your base, again and again. (Good player can always beat you, regardless of what level). Playing at L8, you face the same L10 dev bases and your full attack load, even with armory equipment, would more likely get you 2 stars than 3 stars. On defense, your base would get trashed over and over again by L10 jumps/jets.

So no, I don't think L8 is easier than L10, unless they fix match making.

First time posting here - but I agree with lvl8 not being the place to stop. I made the jump to 9 a few weeks ago (been playing maybe 6 months total?) and the ability to have sonics and an oppressor makes offense and defense easier, because at lvl8 I'd see tons of lvl9 & 10 bases, as well as 9 & 10 attackers due to my medal count. As soon as I converted a handful of turrets to sonics and built the oppressor, all of a sudden lvl9s and some 10s were losing their attacks.

I figure I'll stick at 9 until every piece of upgradeable item is complete. Then move to 10.

Also, these bonus elite crates are great for players like me who joined relatively recently. Helps a ton unlock and upgrade units that have been around a while (Togs, ATRT, Kessen, Vans, etc etc). So far its helped me max Kessen, Vans, and HWK-290.

If you have an HQ 10 like me (I have one in each faction) -- just forget -- 3 stars on level 10 bases 6 times in a row for 900 Ep at each 2h for so many useless/garbage units is insane, pointless, and stupid... The only good unit is the Tie Brute/U Wing skin, with rare frags in the Bonus Crates.

But if you want to have and use all this garbage as Turret Slicer, Hauler, AT-DT, Demolition droid, SD-K4 -- and try your luck with the Tie Brute/U Wing frags, anyway, start all over again with a mini base, rush HQ to 6 upgrading only a few buildings to attack and the basic units, and be happy 3-starring bases 2-3 levels below, and finish the event 3 days before, and enjoy the rest of the event collecting Bonus Crates, doing 5 attacks in less than 10 min for 720 EP each 2h for 5 rewards (18-25 frags).

This kind of Event System incentived more players to build more minis only to play it, what is good for them but too bad for the game that already suffers with the stupid matchmaking system.

I played this Event week only with my baby Imperial HQ 6 -- created to feed my HQ 10 SC and play Events, and I got 16 Bonus Crates. From all rewards (15 different units because it doesn't have anything maxed out), the most rewarded unit was the AT-DT (54 frags), and then Hauler (36 frags), Shocks (28 frags), Kessen (28 frags), and (unbelievable) the Tie Brute (25 frags), followed by Kubaz and Tie Advanced (24 frags each one)... The less rewarded units were LIN (12 frags) and SD-K4 (9 frags).

While most of Event units are maxed out, I played the Russian Roulette in the Shop with my HQ 10. I decided to burn a few of my Windows Crystals and bought one Event Crate (500 crystals) and the Force was with me, bingo!... I got frags for tognath and 4 frags for Tie Brute... Good... Good... Let's try again, and bingo! More frags for Tognath and 6 frags for Tie Brute, the exactly amount to level up to 2... 1000 crystals for 10 Tie Brute frags? Best cost/benefit I had in the shop so far. Now I can get the 20 frags at the end of this week and upgrade Tie Brute to Level 3.

I like the Tie Brute/U Wing, but I only use them to loot with my Rebel and Imperial HQs 10. A Level 10 Tie Fighter/X Wing with Level 2 skins is perfect to me for ensure I will have all the loot at the end of my attacks, specially if vaults/depots are buried in the middle of a base... And the samples are great in wars to bomb SC when Yavin is not available.

Now I'm going for this last Event week with 3 of my acc only for those 20 Tie/U frags. :)

Started collecting elite crates for both my L10 Rebel bases Monday evening, with the goal of upgrading U-wing on senior base and elite ATTE on junior base. Got U-wing to L3, but only received eATTE frags once! Certainly a mixed bag for me.
