Champions we play with?

I was doing some thinking about the champions and the fact there are three levels of champions.  The almost useless carbonites, the good durasteel and the super event champions.  By now most of the players who've been playing the game since the beginning or near the begining have their carbonites all collected and most of the durasteel ones too (I know some have all carbonite and durasteel champions).

My question is does anyone (the long time players) bother to play with the carbonite champions?  Do you level them up to 40 or do you just leave them and only work on your event and durasteel champions?  I would think the effort put into working on your carbonite champions could be put to better use working on the durasteel and event champions.

Just curious on how others work on their champions.  I would love to see a weekend or week long event that gave you double experience points.  I remember one such event a long time ago back in December i think where they did this.  I know they have the once a day double points mission but i wish it would be more often.

Dominatio: The Valor system is broken and I don't think it is top priority for the devs. Sadly. It works with champions but nothing else, I should be on about rank 30, currently sitting on 6.

In response to Yaj, I use good carbonites to augment the durasteels. Champions like Darth Vader are good and Darth Maul for DS and Luke for the light side. Event champions are good when you have a few of them.

Its all about potential attack damage and investing your time. My carbonites were only useful in the very beginning because it was easy to get a level 40 character. Once I got some durasteel champions to level 40 I focused entirely on them. Currently, I only work with my event champions because they are so much better than everyone. Even a level 40 event champ is better than most level 60 durasteel champs. Yoda and Darth Sidious are the only regular durateel champs that come close to event champs. I agree Yaj, I'd like to see an mission point event like the one we had that one time.

I got into this game a couple weeks ago. I have unlocked all the dark side and light side carbonites (with the events it was hard not to). But I find a large wall in the way of these event and durasteel heroes. Right now I'm on my way to maxing Vader (33), Jango (35), and Pong (33), with Aurra sing (25?) as my 4th for arena. I have saved up about 130 gems and only even used them for the initial offered deal of some carbonite and durasteel tokens. I'm not really sure where to go from here, I managed to collect 4 of the current event hero and 3 of the prevous one, not really sure if they are worth trying to max since I donno if I'll have a chance to finish them.

@Balmic26: Yeah it's clearly broken when i see people putting up 1.5mil plus with me in top 3 and i look at their rank and they're rank 6 despite having medals for having several lvl 60 event champions. That and the fact that I am missing numerous valor rewards for champion levels etc which seem to be ones that didn't count because the game crashed on me during post game stats screens which happens all the time.

I am curious though what you mean by " It works with champions but nothing else" does vlor actually do something that I haven't noticed like enhance xp rewarded or anything like that or is it just achievement stuff? It'd be nice if it was worth something more than just achievements/bragging rights.



@Attroc: I hate to say it but this isn't a game that you can compete at top level and consistently get 10/10 of event champions and also collect all durasteel champions unless you're willing to spend money. Unlike alot of other games there doesn't seem to be any type of currency rewards system for watching videos or downloading advertised apps etc like with TapJoy or AppTrailers etc, at least not that I've seen yet.

edit: didn't realize I wasn't logged in for the duplicate post above and cant seem to delete it, if an admin could that'd be great.

I Will delete the duplicate. Just to explain my self, sometimes when you get champion achievments, it will increase your valor score, it is also a little better now because I am slowly advancing. Still broken though and I can't fathom how people have got rank 55 and things like that. It doesn't really do anything yet but it was designed to balance events. As I said earlier, I should be on about Rank 30 myself, I have been playing since the day it came out (minus the times I had the 67% bug - 3 whole events)

Currently there is no currency rewards system and I don't think they will add that for a while, there is a lot for them to fix first.

Things will eventually get fixed with time,

Ok, well that's disapointing, I was aware of that but was hopeful that it would affect future events somehow in our favor the higher our valor is whether for future unreleased new event types or just as a exp bonus % based on our valor rank but o well.

I wish there was a trade in system as well, I have like 15 carbonite tokens just sitting on me from the last few events since I already had all carbonite champions and cant do antyhing with them. Would be nice if you could trade like 3 or even 5 carbonite tokens for a durasteeltoken or something. Same thing with credits, ever since they made durasteel gem only instead of credit purchasable I cant spend credits fast enough, even with spam buying the skill energy refresh support cards to help speed level champions.

Looks like I'm the only one who went the hard way and got my durasteels before my carbonites (They kept throwing me Ahsokas and I hate her with a passion).

I now have enough credits to get my carbonites on both sides, but I have this strange feeling if I do that they'll decide to re-implement the credits for durasteels and I'll be stuck again.

I was wondering what you guys did with your free (and now useless) carbonite pods. Maybe they'll release more carbonite champions in the future or something.

I level all them up because I would like to max them. But I see why some of you think not.

@hairymuggle, currently there's nothing you can do with the extra carbonite tokens except let them accumulate. While the galactic credits are almost equally worthless, at least you can still purchase support cards with them. Honestly, I don't think it will matter if you unlock your carbonites with tokens or credits because it's highly unlikely DeNA will revert back to the galactic credits for durasteel champions model. I'm with Dominatio, I wish they would implement a trade system.

In regards to carbonite champions, for the dark side I'd say Vader is worth using for his area slow + damage  ability and tankiness. (I still use him even though I have some copies of event champions)

I believe Dengar is worth using also because his ability is a source of quick AOE damage since the hitbox of the ability is the grenades and not the explosions. Darth Maul could be worth using if his ability dealt continuous damage instead of the hitbox disappearing after activation.

As for carbonite tokens, I just save them until an event starts because recruiting a carbonite champ also gives some EP boosters.
