WOOT!! 12 Elite Orbak Marauder Armory Equipment Frags in 1 Elite Event Crate!

:arrow: THAT IS THE SAME OR MORE than the number of Frags possible in a In-Game Shop - Premium Event Crate without the cost of 500 Crystals :lol:

:arrow: The above is from my HQ 11/P Account which is getting nothing but Orbak Frags either for the Unit or Armory Equipment.

AND HOW are you doing?

None of your luck DS at all on my maxed hq8 rebel ( my only base )

50% frags approx for elite / standard Orbak
Other 50% are demo droids in the main with Prada leia, ETTE & kessen. A few spiders now and again.

Started off well with no demo droids.

Honestly, if I opened a Crate and it has 5 rewards for the Horse and Elite Horse, I wouldn't be happy at all, on the contrary, I'd call names to the last generation of developers. And guess what? The first crate I opened for my HQ 8 Rebel had 3 rewards for the Horse and 2 rewards for the Elite Horse... Even with 8 other possible rewards! And I just opened Crate #8 for this base and it also had only Horses inside. :evil:

Maybe the Devs give us a Haras where we can breed all these horses, or a corral as new Guard Reserve and when attacked dozens of Fathiers and Baracks will come out and start kicking enemy troops...

I'm getting sick of this and I'm about to stop playing this Event with my main accounts, Rebel HQ 11 and Rebel HQ 8, because rewards for the units I really want to max out - eATTE, Spider and Ithos - are very rare, and Iakaru even rarer.

And this Horse sets a dangerous precedent - it's the first Elite Unit that ever got a skin. Going forward, devs may find that's a good business releasing skins for other Elites instead of just giving them a buff.

You should be seeing dev bases within 4-10 skips on Tatooine and Erkit.

I would load one barrack with vans, 3 with jets, all 3 factories with TXs and MTTs in the cantina. After attacking you will have 1 van, 3 jets, 3 TXs and 1 MTT, wait for the second van (2 mins) and MTT to pop out and fill the rest of the transports with random samples. This should be strong enough to take out dev bases and it should give you a turnaround of about 8-10 minutes per attack. Bonus crates take 4 attacks so you will not need to open the barracks/factories/cantina screens in between attacks to refill so you should be able to get an elite crate in about 30 minutes; refill build queues in all after the 4 attacks. I would load all heal ships in the air support to help with sonics.


Excellent suggestion - using the Vanguards to clear a path, then the TX tanks/jets to take out the front turrets, and dropping even the L1 MTT’s back a bit to cleanup the satellite buildings gave them enough time to spawn the Dowutins. Bases I couldn’t star are starting to fall now without rancor’s/dekas/air. Have to experiment a bit more with the deployment ranges.

It very likely is due to your 37k medals. That range of matchmaking was much easier. You’ll start seeing difficulty increases about 500 points before the 5K marks.... 49500 and 54500 were like hitting walls for me,

Dropping medals is an interesting option, but doesn’t always work, Last time I tried it, it dropped me into a matchmaking pool where people had a goal to take out mortar turrets and they’d try my base and lose (intentionally or not, I don’t know) to hit the mortars for the daily goal... the result was my medal dump failed and I still got more medals pouring in that pushed me up into the 45-50k range... so I kept going.

Thanks for the help again, strawman3125. Appreciate it.

Your orbak good luck DS coming my way now, pretty OP with the skin.

Plenty of ithos, leia and spiders as well now.

eATTE have dried up after a good start.

On another subject , as I cannot create a new topic, are you finding brand new players with a user name ‘Cal’ ?

We have seen it and it’s due to the new Star Wars PS4 / xbox / PC game ‘ fallen Jedi ‘ as main protagonist is called ‘ Cal’

2 ‘cal’ s joined us recently but had to be turned away as it would cause confusion.

We explained why turned away , but as they are new would rather know of good rebel squads we could suggest to goto, to nurture them etc and not be disheartened from the off.

As I said cannot open new topic but believe it’s worth it to keep new commanders

And this Horse sets a dangerous precedent - it's the first Elite Unit that ever got a skin. Going forward, devs may find that's a good business releasing skins for other Elites instead of just giving them a buff.

I actually think that skins for unlockable units is fine, otherwise the unlockable units need to be just as powerful as skinned units to be usable in PvP but then they are overpowered in Squad Wars (like the SMTT). I also think that they could start releasing skins for units that already have skins, as long as they do something different.

Great idea! Cantina GR: Horses!!! (eoither on or both)
