    I can't see them not doing something else for The Mandalorian. It seems like they're actually leaving money on the table by not releasing Baby Yoda into the game. Hell, even I'd be tempted to spend if they released him, regardless of what his kit did.

    The Child would probably have some kind of healing mechanism if they actually follow the show.

    If Baby Yoda was in the game, my wife might actually play, that's how strong this kiddo's cultural pull is. And she barely gives 2 whatevers about SW.

    Tell her Hermit Yoda is old baby Yoda. It's not entirely wrong.

    The trailer for season 2 has me pretty pumped, but still 6 weeks to go for the first episode.

    As for Mandalorian content, with IG-88 this month's log-in character I was thinking it might be a hint that IG-11 is coming to the game. My guess would be as a marquee event.

    I don’t know, part of me is tempted to just try and wait till the whole season is out to watch them so I don’t have to deal with cliffhangers. Will I? Probably not.

    CG has really dropped the ball on the login characters meaning anything. In the beginning, it actually did give hints, but the last couple years, it’s all seemed pretty random. Sometimes they’re related, but more often they don’t connect to anything. IG-11 would be interesting, but it feels a bit strange if we had three IG model droids. Well, I guess four if you count Magnaguard.

    Why not, we have half a dozen versions of Han and Chewie already.

    Eh, Han is a main character and all the versions of him are visually different. The IG assassin droids all look the same. There was a reason everyone thought IG-11 was IG-88 to begin with. At least in-game, IG-86 and IG-88 have different colors.

    Chewie definitely doesn't need all the version of him we have. But it occurs to me that the Chewies from Disney movies look to the right, the Chewies from the OT looks to the left, and CW Chewie kind of looks straight at you.

    It looks like if you unlocked Jedi Knight Luke, you're given a headstart on these requirements.

    For me personally, I think I like darkside more, and that's where my roster will lean. I reliced Palpatine way before Galactic Legends, and I also took Thrawn to R7 just because I really enjoy using him. Vader was going to be my next 13 anyway so I'll probably shoot for Palpatine after GAS.

    Woooooooowwwww these requirements don't seem fair to GL Luke fans (if you're starting from scratch).

    Maybe they typo'd when they wrote Jedi Knight Anakin and meant General Anakin instead???

    Huh, I have to admit I did not expect the Palpatine requirements. Luke’s requirements make sense to me. No one on there I didn’t expect. But Palpatine seems to be way easier on requirements. JKA instead of GAS?

    After the second set of requirements, it looked like Palpatine was going to be more Sith than Empire, but this pretty much blew that out of the water. Thrawn and Tarkin were early guesses of mine. I already had Thrawn at R3, so R6 isn’t too bad. Not fun, but not horrible. There a part of me that’s happy to see Tarkin there. I’ve always like him and really don’t have any regrets on taking him to G13. Starck and Veers are decent, too, since they play well with Piett. And I already had JKA at R7.

    But only one brand new character for Palpatine? Luke got two, plus the JKL requirement. I don’t know, it doesn’t seem balanced.

    It does look like I might realistically end up going for GL Luke after Palpatine. Not right away because it would burn me out and I’m hurting on relic salvage, but I’m either close to or would like to gear almost all of his requirements.

    I'm not sure how I'm going to do this as a newer entering player. I wanna charge hard after JKL and GML after my GAS journey is complete, but I'll be damned if I'm going to spend GET II on ROLO and ignore Negotiator or not 7 star GAS with GET I in order to get Hoda and Wampa before I'm done with GAS. (The GET I restockpiling is upon me - I'm at ~4K GET I and well on my way to the requisite 68.5K :) )

    CHOLO and Lando don't seem like major issues for me, but I am seriously blocked on ROLO, Hoda, and Wampa by straight up time.

    For a newer player, GL Luke may as well be one of the hardest characters to get in the game. There’s so much nested in there. It is possible to get Wampa shards from one of the Galactic Bounty events, but it’s the toughest one to beat of the bunch. Hoda is GET I only. As far as ROLO, you can get her from LS Hoth TB. That’s the best place to get her, actually.

    But Wampa and Hoda are major hurdles, especially since you don’t have GAS yet.

    I'll stay the course on getting JML someday, years from now for sentimental and lore reasons. I'd much rather do JML than SEP. To my untrained eye, it appears as if there's 4 characters on SEP's roadmap that I'd rather never gear up (Maul, Krennic, RG, and Sidious) compared to 1 out and out character I'm going to hate to gear on JML's roadmap (Leia). I'm rationalizing being fine with Wedge and Biggs' gear because eventually in Division 2, I'm gonna need 2 fleets on D and attack now anyways, and I'm rationalizing being fine with Lando because in "theory" I can stick him in a Mon Mothma squad, or hell maybe even a Rebel leftovers squad under....Wedge lead???

    The requirements for Luke are certainly better overall, but you end up needing so many more characters for him (not counting the last group, which is a little overlap with Jedi Luke):

    [​IMG]

    That would take a lot longer to get him than anyone else. Jedi Luke’s requirements are pretty steep and they’re all G13.

    I really don’t know. A lot is going to come down to the kit. Luke is almost certainly going to have some kind of break from Old Republic Jedi. JKR and Jolee have been and still are a thorn in the side of future Jedi because it would be so easy to make insanely powerful Jedi teams if they aren’t careful. If I had to guess, GL Luke might prevent revives on his team or have it so he cannot be revived. Or be a Force Ghost that stays until everyone else is gone.

    You’re also looking at a situation where GL Luke and Jedi Luke are both immune to fear, which would hamper DR, Malak, and Bsatila Fallen. Assuming GL Palpatine would want to use them. It’s even worse for stuns. GL Luke, Jedi Luke, and JKR are all immune to stun, which hurts GL Kylo.

    You would want to use Wedge, Biggs, and Lando under a Mothma lead. She is scary.

    I agree. Overall SEE's requirements are far lighter than Master Luke's. I wonder whether this will steer more players who aren't veterans to push for SEE. Newer players without Hoda or Wampa are in a tough spot for sure. Dropping plans for Malak or GSky to go for Master Luke may certainly hurt them over the short term.

    As it stands now, I'm tempted to go for SEE after Master Luke. My JKA is done, plus Thrawn and Vader are R4 and I'd enjoy gearing up toons like Palpatine, Dooku and Marauder since I know they will be of use. I just like these characters more than FO. Out of them all, only Krennic and Maul stand out as complete wastes and I'd still rather gear them over Phasma and FO nobodies.

    But this decision can wait until SEE is in game and we know how effective he is. So I have the luxury of time in this regard.
