Looking forward to seeing how both play, saved 7k credits so far! What do we reckon, 10k each for both heroes?

  • I have no idea, but I've been saving as well. Its nice to have a cushion of credits anyway, just in case you want to go a bit crazy. I have between 30-35k saved up for TLJ, I'm hoping to get a bit higher still.
  • id guess 10k is probably a reasonable amount since they arent really iconic heroes. Frankly im focused more now on unocking the current heroes and ill deal with these scrubs later. I hope Phasma has a better role in this movie. the last one she seemed kind like a push over in the end. Finn i dont really know what his abilities will be. will have have light saber like he had for some part of Force Awakens? id guess he probably keeps a standard blaster since he is a former storm trooper.

    Nice! Hoping to get to 20k within the next week or so, just as a base to go off.

    I hope so too. The trailer showing the glimpse of a confrontation between Finn and Phasma looks good. Hoping to see Phasma leading the charge against the Resistance first though.

    I can imagine Finn with the E16 with buffed stats, maybe a buff ability too? Would be good to see him use the riot control baton too.

    Also, Poe's Black One X-Wing is getting a new ability due to TLJ by the looks of things.

  • Been saving a bit. Got almost $20k so I can unlock the heroes. Already unlocked all the current heroes but hardly bought any crates yet. Once I get Finn and Phasma I’ll probably throw the rest of my credits at hero or starfighter crates unless they drop the price of the trooper ones.

    Yeah I was going to do the same. Probably the hero crates mainly.

    Interesting. So will it be a case of never unlocking them or just if creds or available might do?

  • I have 30k creds banked waiting for them. Hopefully that should be enough to unlock them both.

    I would be surprised if they are 15k each mind. Think you should have more then enough!

    Pretty sure one character will be free, because we can select a side.

    That's actually a good point, I wonder if you will get one free dependent on which side you pick. If not, no biggie.

    I have stacked 45k so far for Finn and Phasma and have Vader and Luke unlocked, too. Have 3-4 cards upgraded to epics and around 20 unlocked in total, so my overall focus for now will be on the TLJ heroes, not desperate for crates atm.

    Will leave Leia, Chewie and Palpatine for a later unlock.

    Finn and Phasma will build a solid roster of Heroes/Villains for me to play with in the future - Luke, Han, Lando, Rey, Yoda and Finn vs. Boba, Bossk, Vader, Kylo, Maul, Iden and Phasma.

    The last 3 locked heroes can wait for now.
  • Yea, I'm saving up at the moment, have just over 24k.
  • I am already saving. My goal are 100k.

    Working my way to 100k as well, just in case the price of crates drop.
  • Not fussed about Phasma because I already struggle to pick who to play between all the awesome villains but I'm really hoping that Finn gives us a hero besides Rey that doesn't totally suck in Galactic Assault.
  • Not really. Buying crates whenever I can so I can upgrade my Palpatine

  • Not really. I'm not even saving credits for the heroes already available.

    Heroes are for wannabes, compensating for something... :)
  • It'll probably be 10k each, I'll start saving on the 5th
  • I have 79,000 credits. I haven’t spent any of my credits at all.
  • Goal is to get to 30k by the time they come out. I've already done most of the challenges that are realistically attainable for me, though, so just relying on the ~300 credits per match or whatever it is at this point.
  • Not really looking forward to either of these two lack luster characters. Hopefully my opinion changes once the movie comes out. As far as playing in game, I find it hard to believe Phasma will be a better ranged villain than Boba, and Lando is my fav hero to play with so no way Mr. Big Deal is taking that slot.

    I’m sure one of the two, if not both, will be strong characters to promote that carrot dangle and hype.

  • Yep been saving and I’m at 45k right now. I still have Vader, Palpatine to unlock though. My guess is 10k to unlock for losing side. Winning side gets a discount on their character. Waiting for the inevitable horror screams from the losing side.

  • Anyone else waiting for them to remove credit costs for heroes because it's the right thing to do?

    I do remember having credit shortages in bf2015 early on. I'd buy a new character unlock or more charges for cards and be back down to under 5k. But once I unlocked everything credits just piled up and I was getting 750 daily from base command.

    Maybe we just need a 2x XP weekend?

    You do realize that the Heroes will most probably be available on the 13th, before the fraction thing ends on the 27-29th?

    Yeah I would say hero crates. That's what I have been opening. You get some pretty good stuff even for trooper classes.

    I guess I will put some Credits back I mean I will always unlock everything

    Currently my main goal is buying both Iden and Leia at which I am tallying at 9,617 Credits after that I'll spend a week buying Hero Crates and using Crafting Parts to upgrade my Infantry and Heroes

    And then put some back for the rest

    I havnt even opened a trooper crate. I don't need to since in leveling up just fine and if I want a trooper card I'll buy a few hero crates and get an uncommon or rare :D

    Yeah. I’ll probably get Finn first but who knows
  • Going to try and start saving, I do want Phasma & Finn on release day. I set myself a goal of getting three purple cards with two heroes (Iden and Rey), I achieved that today, took me getting to level 40 playing HvV to earn the credits to buy the loot crates I needed to get enough crafting parts to upgrade their cards.

    I also might start having a go at being a pilot, there is so much of the game I haven't properly checked out yet.
  • Ofcourse I plan to unlock everything..
    I am manly saving up to see what happens with the crates price/crafting in general ..if anything
  • Wait, is "a free DLC" how come it's gonna cost us credits? Is this official?

    Nah. Almost have enough for Leia, and then all that's left to unlock is Vader who I don't really care about. Will probably invest my credits into crates until the new heroes arrive and I can see what they offer.
