Challenging but fun
I find this game challenging to get 3 stars on the sieges. But the challenge is fun and gives my old brain a workout in coming up with a winning strategy. I try to figure out how to adjust my deck of cards to have the best chance to win. I engage enemy units as far out as possible because if you wait they will overwhelm you. The key to me is to not lose the multiplier. I try to figure out when I can engage and have a draw which gives the enemy damage and weakens them but does not cost me the multiplier. Only when I am sure I can get a draw or win do I attack. The random critical hit can mess up that strategy and if that happens I just have to try again. I use the cards as quickly as I can even when using one will not give maximum damage if I were to wait a turn or two i.e. I don't wait until the maximum enemy spawn in a sector before using the orbital strike. Holding a card reduces the chance of getting another useful card. And I will discard a card hoping to get it later when it may be more useful. Having maximum shields at the end is also key. Having the squad shield card toward the end to rebuild the shields is key to that. And toward the end if I have a choice of using a card or unit to defeat an enemy I will go with the unit to get the rank up points. I use Princess Leia to defeat Boba Fett because she can defeat him and take away his re-spawn perk. Anyway a fun time killer that gives my brain a workout to come up with a winning strategy.
Great Companion App
I'm not in any affiliation with EA, I'm just a dude who thought this app was pretty cool and needed to give it a good rating. All these people writing one or two star reviews probably can't figure out how to use the app and could also be running it without an internet connection or on an old device. I see no reason not to give this app 5 stars because it completely deserves it. The commander game is something else we have never really seen before from a companion app and I hope that this can really set a good example for future games and their companions. The ability to check stats, change load outs and see progress are all pretty standard and are what we expect from a companion. The Commander game really makes me happy though, all these guys saying "luck of the draw isn't fair" and "the game is made so you can win" aren't really thinking about what a card game really is. When your playing Chess and the guy across the table looks like he's going laugh his head off at your next move you don't just get up and punch him, you play your turn to the best of your knowledge and then you learn about the one really specific rule you just broke and lose the game because of it. You can't blame the rules or the guy across the table, but your self for not understanding the game.
Some potential but falls short
This game/app is easy enough to pick up and can be fairly addicting. That being said, the lack of being able to get new and better cards, combined with the punishingly fast ramp up in difficulty means being stuck and frustrated. You pass these endless seeming levels with little reward. I think it's 50 credits on a three star. 50 credits to spend on nothing! There's no card store! Actually. Your reward is using the same starter deck to fight until you hit the wall of death. And you WILl hit it. Look, stealth AT-ATs that have armor, you don't see until they are on top of you, and because they are top of you, all your regular space ships can't attack it! (Minimum range on xwings and snow shuttles) if you somehow manage to get past that, you face enemy heroes that are demigods on the battlefield. You have to kill them in one round or they heal to full. And they respawn where you killed them so they just make this endless march right into your base! I like Star Wars, and I have played magic and hearthstone. I wanted to like this game but if it can stump me, it will stump all but the most hardcore players. You may not believe me now, but you will leave the game agreeing with me! Mark my words. Uninstalling and never again!
