I personally asked on here for them to lower the UC of the dowutin hunter to 4. They dropped it to 8. I will claim victory and move on.

Yes, but bonus crates are an optional grind, you can do as many as you want to get as many rewards as you want.

As far as frags for useful units, what was the last month? 2 weeks of sniper/SS GR and 2 weeks of jumps/jets.


Yes, they were useful frags, but it was back to the grind for many to get any benefit. I can play for 12 hours a day and still barely sneak into the UC leagues. That a function of being a top level Prestige player only getting 700 gears per successful attack.


This is where rebels have a much harder time with conflicts than imperials. :(


Thanks for being sensitive Spock. we lost many good players and shrinked our rebel counterpart due to unhuman needs to be able to get the units and have fun...

5. We asked for the matchmaking system to be fixed - we get nothing.

So for me and many others, this will be a conflict where we just don't bother to play.

1. didn’t we just have 4 weeks of events not long ago ?
2. You can’t simply remove units. And “little used” and “useless” are very subjective terms. A unit may not be useful to you but may be useful to others.
3. Well, jets and barrack sniper frags may not be useful to you (?) but can be very useful for others.
4. May want to use “I”, not we. Not everyone would grind for rancor frags.
5. This, I agree, but how it should be fixed can be complicated, and may not make everyone happy.

And perhaps you don’t appreciate new units, don’t assume others don’t.

In general, one should speak on their own behalf and not try to represent all players.

I asked for it to be lowered to 8 long time ago. It finally happened.

Think it might be time to quit.

Don't let the game make you miserable....video games shoud be fun.

Constant complaining is unhealthy......If solutions aren't being offered to your problems....just move on to something else. Life is too short to be unhappy especially from a game.

1. Yes - and player interest and activity went up significantly, so why not keep it going.
2. Not sure how many times you have used the Fathier, Turret Slicer, Ilaku, Bufopel or Demo Droid in PvP activity, but I'm guessing for 95% of the population it's rarely or never.
3. Jet and Sniper frags were useful and I agreed with that, but where are the Fang, Hauler or eAT-TE frags? Haven't seen those in many month.
4. I don't want to grind for Rancor frags, but I'd at least like to have them unlocked. And why have the Krayt Dragon still locked and then introduce a totally new unit?
5. Yes, this should be a priority fix, instead of providing us with four flags to make the base look pretty.

I would always appreciate a new unit, providing I had the chance to upgrade or unlock previously issued units. And I'm not sure how this unit is going to be a significant advantage over the Wookie Wagon.

And I forgot to add that jet frags are freely available in Bronzium crates. Everybody can get those.

Donut hunters are almost useless since they were released, UC decrease do not make them useful, I have never used mine since my Windows days, and I keep them at level 1, even if they reduce UC to 4, I still prefer to use the Twileks. And why not a transport full of blue ladies? That would be really cool. :D

The next try for Devs should be to decrease UC for Farthier to 3 or 4 UC, and maybe that thing will become useful as filling a SC when nothing else does it.

But we'll have another Event in a week, and for Rogue One units like I wanted, maybe it's a sample that they're actually listening to the players, but they can not do much else because Disney does not allow them to change the game a lot, who knows?

But most of these things take time. A lot of time.
And unfortunately, some/most of these things will ever change. As long as people keep paying to play a bad game nothing will change.

I quite fancy the new unit... but I played like a beast the last few conflicts for snipers & jumps... just the thought of turning it on at the mo is a bit much!!!

I kind of wish they weren't so relentless... maybe conflict, then Ep, the conflict etc... relentless grinding has completely burnt me out this month...

saying that... i'll probably get stuck in on at least one of the weekend days ahead ;)

1. It looks like there is a full month of events coming up after this conflict! AND an interesting looking vehicles at half price and cook times thing... maybe weekly 'encouragement' to use different things? These could be interesting.
2. They just tweaked the UC of the hunters. I hope there are many more tweaks to come!!!
3. We just had 4 weeks of the most desired/used frags in the game... but I do want to see more frags for other units (uwings/wagons,etc.)
4. Meh, without tweaks a major overhaul to the way rancors work, I never want to see any conflicts for rancors coming up. They require far to many frags to get to a level that is useful withing the next several years, which the game won't be around for... IF they dropped the frag requirements for them down to 1/4 of what they are now and I might grind for them.
5. We saw them tweak the matching algorithm once, hopefully they will try again. Though I think that we already established that the matching algorithm is actually working for you, a top level player facing top level players. What I hope they fix is the attack to defense power balance and the gears rewarded for winning.

I suspect they have compete control over the game and it is just taking time to get into the code. Given that Disney upgraded the Cantina to level 10, these new hunter wagons might have been in the pipe before the handover, but if they weren't then the new owners are already putting out new units which means that bigger changes could come.

I'm not sure whats going on here... My HQ9 bases only get 550 gears per win and I manage to get 4-5 UCs without spending 12 hours per day. (with both factions...)

Spock wrote:This is where rebels have a much harder time with conflicts than imperials. :(


I know that everyone's experience in this game is different but I am not sure how the Rebels have a disadvantage in grinding for UCs. In fact my Rebel account has gotten on average 1 more UC per conflict in every conflict in the last year than either of my Imperial accounts. My experience is that the Rebels have the advantage in conflicts and events.

It's called a multi transport; hopefully you will be able to choose the merc it deploys in the future!
