But at least a good sign of good faith.

Two words: hero defense. It should be quick to get to L4-5. Anything higher than that is tough for everyone.


If you can get these new frags in hero defense or bronzium planetary crates.
I hope it will be the case. But more likely there will be no frags in these crates, at least not now.

I welcome this and think it's fair to give imps the shock trooper GR.
I am sure it will be a heck of a grind for Rebels as this is something we have bern waiting for a long time.
Also gaving imp bases, I can see the edge sniper GR gives during hd.

Bull. This must be a Rodian countermeasure, or rather balance, for us shagged Rebs, surely?

The frags aren't available yet, although the gr shows up in the armory. I just opened a bronzium crate and got credits for the last reward instead of shock trooper frags. I assume these will go in the general frag pool, and won't be event only, but you never know.

Correct decision, and long in coming....

Is it me or is the game just going to go full 'fuck it' mode and just set all the stats the same eventually, so being rebel / imp will just be essentially skins...

Will see.... As long as I've Vader I don't care haha!

Agreed, this is way after the horse has bolted. Imperial side got to use these for so long in conflicts, hero def and pvp, and max them out, then eventually they are given to the rebels, who now have to grind against those same imperail bases to unlock and upgrade them. Still, positive news, game slowly heading back to a more even keel perhaps.

The reduced % against infantry combined with the fact that our sharps take 8 spaces means imperials do more damage and can carry an extra sniper in prestige SC, so that's a bit disappointing. Would like to see something this important be equivalent.

And they did not remove the 26% (188 vs 162) higher damage Armory Equipment bonus that Jets have over Jumps!

I just noticed this:
It looks like the base Calculated Damage (from https://papajessie.github.io/swcpy/) Jets is much higher than Jumps as well at 2592 vs 1813 at Prestige!

Calculated Damage X Armory Bonus
2592 X 1.88 = 4872.96
1813 X 1.62 = 2937.06
4872.96 / 2937.06 = 1.65

So max level Rebel Jets do 65% more damage than Imperial Jumps!!! (and 26% more health)

Jets crush Jumps!


Still this persists?? Rubbish, jets and jumps are almost identical, jumps charge and fire faster making up for the difference in damage. This is imperial burly to try and muddy the waters.

No "details" yet but expect the new Event to start this week following the end of the current Undead Offensive Event.


Copy that. So we should expect another event grind to unlock the new GR buff?
