Events with such high EP requirements should never last 4 weeks, 2 weeks would just be great, maybe three since there are 3 different units in Event Crates, but never 4 weeks.Rebel HQ 11
and Imperial HQ 11
did not participate this 2nd week.Rebel HQ 8
opened 10 Crates and the last two gave me the 7 frags for Fang Level 5, now I have the option to upgrade if I want to! I will use these two weeks to get as many frags as possible for the other 3 possible rewards:
Bride Leia: 72 frags to max
Yetis: 219 frags to max
TX-225: 128 frags to maxImperial HQ 8
got Striker Level 4, Guard Level 2 and Togs Level 7, with all other units at Level 8, or maxed out, and Rebel HQ 7
maxed out Rebel Command, and got Fang Level 4, Togs Level 4, and Drabs Level 2. Rebel HQ 9
played casual and didn't get frags to upgrade anything.
And answering @syncpan77, in addition to the question of frag-wise as DS calls it (max out an unit to remove it from your frag pool), there is the fact that Fangs/Strikers are super powerful, but the upgrade raises the cooking time a lot from Level 5. I agree, but they are great units for wars especially if Yavin is in your favor, so the higher the level the better.
And for PvP, I don't need to use Fangs/Strikers if they are high level with high cooking time, I can use Decimator/HWK that have less UC (only 3). I use Decimators and HWK for my HQ 7, HQ 8 and HQ 9 because of the 3 UC versus 4 UC of the Fangs/Strikers, but I use only Strikers/Fangs Level 6 when attacking with my two Prestige.
It's just a question about what fits better.
Good luck to all in this 3rd week!
