A lot of this is perspective. I'm not one that cares much if everyone maxes out, after it took me several years to do so. I enjoyed the journey, the friendships, the game play, etc. I feel I got more back than I ever gave, in terms of money and time vs. enjoyment. I have no regrets. The game is ending, so I don't really see the point of not having a majority of the players fill their bucket list in the final days. I actually appreciate that I was able to max out my U-Wings and Strix Rage Rancor. The last items I had on my swc bucket list. I see it as closure for everyone. Keep in mind, there are some players that recently got into the game. I think it's good that they can at least play through it to completion, before the doors close. That's just my opinion. I don't believe in closing the doors behind me, once I got mine, so to speak.
I do disagree that the outposts matter now. They actual don't matter now. We just had a 45-45 tie, and it did not matter who had the outposts. Takodana and Tatooine were not even in play. War was done in an hour. Just rapid fire 3 stars, with the timers so fast. Players didn't even bother taking outposts back at one point. I would have changed Takodana and Tatooine to defensive outposts, and increased the levels for all the defensive outposts. That said, there are not that many wars left to be played and that's nitpicking, so the overall change is as good as any IMO. Nothing was ever going to make everyone happy, and that's the operative word. EVERYONE. The game does not belong just to a few.
Squad Level: 50
We are always looking for active players. We have a squad of 25+ members, and we war twice a week. We have maxed out our Perks. We like helping new players, so all players are welcome!
