Why grind? For all of the conflicts, other than the newly introduced unit(s), I've got that respective unit maxed so no need to grind.

I grind my hardest at the beginning and try and lock my desired league in early. Then jump to start on another planet while monitoring if I need to return to the first planet. Most of the time I don’t even play the final day or two unless I end up going for 4 or more planets.


Exactly the same as me... get it done early.. try and get solidly in that top 50... grind like crazy... then chill! I tend to sneak in a few games at the end if needed :)

As always, it just depends! I am a relative newbie in the UC space, for context, but I am now in (just about) the same place as Spock and Richaldo. Two examples to illustrate, using my chase for JK frags. First, the recent conflict on Kit. Found myself after countless (I think about 80 odd runs) @ 1.8% with about 3 hours to run. Gets the adrenalin going when you see the %age change by .01% every 10 or so minutes. So watched it like a hawk! Put in about 6 runs in that time, and ended up @ about 1.85% at the end. Prefer not to do it this way! Second, the current conflict on Tat. Got to 1.6% last night, which became about 1.95% with 10 hours to run. Put my new tortoise speeder boots on, and ended up at 1.14% with 4 hours to run. Safe UC. 50 attacks in the bag, so chilled at the end with a beer! A much better way!
Sorry, long answer to your question! Cheers!

I try to get done a day or two early and wait on the last day or two for any possible maintenance if possible.

Works best on not doing 6 ultra chrome worlds at a time.

Or if it's not a busy conflict week with a lot of points per planet.

It's nice having the last day or two to not need anything and relax too. Some conflicts are too busy for this method though.

Good luck.

Another way to go about is to grind for the gears needed for UCL.

I've created a schedule of the number of gears needed for UCL since last September. You will find it here:
viewtopic.php?f=31&t=23500&start=60#p97448

Another forum member Toname has helped with some of the data (Thank you again, my friend).

As you will see the number of gears needed varies depending on the unit and whether there is an EP event on or not.

To ensure you reach UCL:
- check the last time the conflict reward unit was on offer,
- check the UCL threshold on that page, and
- make sure you get at least that many gears.

Whether you acquire them early in the conflict (like Spock and Richardo) or late (like many others) is up to you.

You must do what you think is right, of course.

What makes you believe that all competitors in conflicts are people rather than AI made to up the score?

"How hard do people grind at the end of the conflict?"

I just did 20k on Hoth last night to lock UC ….. so when conflicts reward valuable units and skins people grind very hard.

I find it comical that some responders say how much they grind and that they earn 6 UC's in a conflict. Everyone knows you ain't grinding @#$% because your bot program is doing all the work.
