Hey folks,

As we talked about in the Galactic Command Thread, Unassembled Components are a way for PvP players to work towards a specific piece of gear. First we will talk about how many Components you get from playing PvP and then I will show you the costs of each item from the vendor.

This list is how many Unassembled Components you get based on the content you play:
  • 5 - Warzone Win
  • 2 - Warzone Loss
  • 3 - Arena Win
  • 1 - Arena Loss
  • 5 - Solo Ranked Win
  • 2 - Solo Ranked Loss
  • 8 - Group Ranked Win
  • 3 - Group Ranked Loss
  • 8 - GSF Win
  • 3 - GSF Loss

Now let’s talk about item costs from the vendor. The following costs are to purchase Tier 1 Unassembled Gear Pieces:
  • Chest - 100
  • Legs - 100
  • Head - 100
  • Hands - 100
  • Feet - 100
  • Waist - 75
  • Wrist - 75
  • Implant - 80
  • Earpiece - 80
  • Relic - 80
  • Mainhand - 120
  • Off-hand - 120

Keep in mind that Tier 1 is the only Tier that you can directly purchase. In order to get a Tier 2 or 3 Unassembled piece, you will need to turn in the previous Tier armor piece along with X amount of Unassembled Components (listed below). As an example if you wanted to get the Tier 2 Unassembled Chest Piece, you would need to go to the vendor with a Tier 1 chest piece and 150 Unassembled Components. This will then give you a Tier 2 Unassembled Chest Piece which you can turn in. Here are the Tier 2 and 3 costs:
  • Chest – 150/225
  • Legs – 150/225
  • Head – 150/225
  • Hands – 150/225
  • Feet – 150/225
  • Waist – 115/175
  • Wrist – 115/175
  • Implant – 120/180
  • Earpiece – 120/180
  • Relic – 120/180
  • Mainhand – 180/270
  • Off-hand – 180/270

Let me know if you have any questions or anything is unclear. Thanks everyone.

It takes 95 winning matches just to earn the tier 3 chest?

Ain't nobody got time for that. Much less an entire set. Much less additional sets for alts. What in blazes is wrong with you people???

The camel's back can't support this much straw, I'm afraid.

You have lost your mind, all of you. the RNG system of GC is so bad most people were hoping this would help. NOPE! You need to cut the needed components to one-third of what you have listed. That is insane. 20- 50 matches for just 1 tier 1 chest piece. you people have lost your mind.

Hi, just one but important question:

In case of Tier 2, Tier 3, are we talking about:

234, 240 purples respectively ?


236, 242 yellow legendaries ?


Can I use shell that already dropped from command crate (purple Tier 2 or yellow Tier 2) and upgrade it to purple / yellow Tier 3?

Thx, for answer

They could not foresee people would be displeased with these changes, so they decided to double down on the ****ery to see how much an average player can take.

First off, thank you very much for the hard numbers. I appreciate that.


Some math (just for tier 1 as my brain doesn't even want to consider tier 2 or tier 3):
1290 components are required for a full set of tier 1.
Assuming a 50% regular unranked warzone win percentage ==> (5 + 2) / 2 = 3.5 components per warzone
1290 / 3.5 = ~369 regular warzones to get tier 1......*passes out*
Assuming a casual dude such as myself runs 5 warzones per day ==> 369 / 5 = 73.8 days to get tier 1

Like I said, I'm not mentally prepared to do the math for figuring out the other tiers. Please have mercy.

Lastly, a question that I brought up a while back in another one of these threads, which I'm assuming wasn't noticed or considered, is this: are we hosed for not keeping the empty shells of the purple gear drops we got from Galactic Command? So, if I got 230 gloves and pants on a character, I pulled the armor / mod / enhancement and sold the empty shell to a vendor ('cause why would I not want 10k or so credits from something that I will never need LOL). Now you are telling me that I actually should have kept those shells? WHOOOPSIE!!! Now I have to re-grind to purchase that shell from the vendor so that I can trade it in for the tier2 variant? I REALLY hope you guys thought about this....

Could I perhaps trade in the armoring instead? Pretty please?

Thank you.

I was afraid that the reason that you waited so long to give us this information is because you knew how bad it was.

I was right. This is total bs. Maybe next time you should try doing more than the very least that you can do.
