Is it 25%? I thought the one atm you can buy (cant buy till at least ONE character is 300) is the 10% CXP boost for all character under 300. From the wording, its going to be a new legacy perk that will come on the 10th and you have to buy THAT new perk, and that new perk is the one that stacks up to 100%. Could be wrong, will check later.

They didn't completely remove them, just some. The flashpoint ones, all the ones from Hammer Station to Red Reaper (not counting the Revan fps) (just to be clear, Hammer Station, Athiss, Mandalorian Raiders, Cademimu, Colicoid Wargames and Red Reaper NPCs on fleet in the main area were removed. not from the mission launch area through the elevator) were removed from the Fleet areas, but they are still on the planets, heck the Colicoid fp guy is still on the space station above Balsavis. Also, you can still start the fps from the terminals. The mission starter NPCs for the Revan fps (Taral V and Maelstorm Prison for Republic, and Boarding Party and The Foundry for Imperials) are still there, they don't light up till level 30ish. Derective 7s NPC starter is still there, and the CZ ones, and the Rak ones. (Kaon and Lost Island) All other fps are through the SoR storylines and beyond.

For the bonus series, they removed the Alderaan NPCs from fleet, that's all they removed bonus series wise. The issue now is they are exploration missions, and not main missions. (The show up yellow, and not purple, and you need to have "Show Exploration missions" checked on your map.) They are all in the same place as before. Balmorra and Taris's (both sides) do not unlock until you complete the main planet storyline there. Nar Shadda, Tatooine, Alderaan, Hoth, Balsavis and Voss's bonus series do not unlock until level 60. Don't ask me why, I think it was a stupid choice, but w/e. The point is, they are still there and not removed.

Now I will say they have removed the Section X storyline on both fleets and the BH one for Imperials from fleet, and want those back. (You can still do the BH one for Republic oddly enough, but I think its because its from a terminal, and not a NPC.)

Hope that answered any questions! Feel free to ask more if you need.

Legacy bank contents are not affected by the United Forces update. If you have more than one Legacy and they are integrated during the new United Forces update, then the sum total of the two banks will be added together. If this integration fills your Legacy bank slots, the extra items will go into a special storage called ‘Legacy Overflow’. This overflow will hold your extra items until you make space to withdraw them--you cannot place items into this overflow.
Are we going to get any additional Legacy Bank tabs to reduce the amount of items going into the "overflow", and help us manage multiple Legacies' worth of Legacy items?

Quote:
Decorations are not impacted by the United Forces update. If you have more than one Legacy which are combined as part of the update, you will have access to each decoration equal to the highest decoration among your Legacies. Ex: On the “Skywalker” Legacy you have 4 Basic Metal Chairs, on the Organa Legacy you have 15 Basic Metal Chairs. After the update, you will have a combined Legacy with 15 Basic Metal Chairs. It is possible that you may end up with more decorations placed than you own after the update. If this happens, you cannot place any more of that decoration until you go below your owned value.
So... I bought 19 chairs, but since I bought them on different servers, you won't let me keep all of them? That's not me having more decos placed than I own, that's you telling me you're taking away 4 of my 19 chairs. If I'm "not impacted" by you taking away stuff I bought, could you tell me just exactly what would qualify as an "impact"?

I understand that you don't want folks getting 'free" decos by doing character transfers back and forth between servers, and ratcheting up their decos counts every time. But this isn't something we are doing. I'm not taking one of my 12 (or more) characters from my "Organa" Legacy, transferring it to my "Skywalker" lagacy and adding 15 chairs to my 4 on "Skywalker", then transferring that character and 19 chairs back to "Organa" so I have 34 there, and so on, doubling and redoubling my chairs over and over.

You're essentially putting all our characters together into one Legacy, and throwing away the other Legacy (or two) we had. We won't have any "source" legacy left behind on another server the we can "transfer back" to. You're letting us keep all our characters on the merged servers, let us keep all our decos, too.

There is one under the legacy perks that is 25% but only available once you get a character to 300. The new perks are going to be added to this one and the new one will depend on how many characters you have at 300 but at the max of 100% increase which will be broke down as such:

Original Legacy Purchase (1 character at 300) 25% (This is a one time purchase across your legacy) Which you will find listed under Other-Galactic Command
2nd character at 300 50%
3rd character at 300 75%
4th character at 300 100%

Any other character after the 4th the perk remains at 100%

The 10% purchase in per character and it is listed under Character perks

Ok, I'm sure you guys probably discussed this at some point....

If you combine all servers into 1 and the daily's are already being fought over, people undercutting each other, taking your goal out so you have to wait in line for the respawn is already happening, then when it finally does respawn someone who can click just a bit faster takes it from you, I've seen it happening, it's happened to me, friends. Already lost a few friends who rage quit because of this garbage.

Won't combining all the servers turn this already conflicting problem into a major full out war? We're already tapped out on daily's with the current server amounts, jamming them into 1 is going to cause more strife, more harassment messages, more rage quitters, which means less paying players, you did think of this, right?

Maybe it's a good idea to turn all planets into a single player only zone, like you did with KOTFE, or flashpoints, then you can invite whomever you want and daily's aren't being fought over constantly.

You've heard of instances?

It wasn't the story, it was just the character creation and play-style that didn't seem to quite "fit".

Thanks to everyone who has used my Refer a Friend link over the years, may the force be with you.

Alright. Time for a question, all hating, trolling, crying, and complaining aside.
5.5 is scheduled to be released on Tuesday of next week, which isn't that far away.

Do we have any more information/clarification on these points that the roadmap stated for 5.5?

I hope you all will forgive me if I don't scroll though all 65 or so pages of discussion to see if those points have already been clarified.

I think you've mis-read.

There are two Legacy CXP boosts you can buy now: Commanding Legacy (In Global Unlocks/Other/Galactic Command), and Improved Command Experience (Character Perks/Advancement).

Quote:
Legacy Perk – For each character that reaches Command Rank 300, we will automatically add an additional 25% bonus CXP to your entire Legacy up to a maximum of 100%. You do need to purchase the initial 25% perk, but the additional 75% will be free. And, YES, this Perk is retroactive, so you will immediately benefit once we deliver United Forces Foundation.
Currently, when one character hits Command level 300, you can buy Commanding Legacy, which gives all other GC characters in your Legacy a 25% boost to their CXP earned. (You also need to be at least Legacy level 10 if you are buying it with credits). And no matter how many characters you have at GC level 300, you only get +25% for your characters under 300. Pretty sure this is the "initial 25% perk" mentioned.

With the "new" version of this perk, if you get a second character to GC level 300, the boost will go to 50%. When a third hits GC level 300 the boost will be 75%, and when a fourth hits 300, the boost will go to 100%. And these "additional" boosts will be free.

Since it will be "retroactive", if you already have 2 characters (or 3 or 4) at GC level 300 when it goes live, it will automically give you 50% CXP bonus (or 75% or 100%) for your characters under GC 300, if you already purchased the "old" perk. IOW, you won't have to get 3 more characters to GC 300 to get the 100% boost if you already have 4 characters at GC level 300. And you won't have to buy the "initial 25%" perk again.


The 10% CXP boost (Improved Command Experience) for a character under 300 can be purchased by and for any level 70 character. You don't need to have any GC 300 characters to buy it, or even any other GC characters at all. You can buy it for your very first GC character, at GC level 1, if you want. But it only applies to one character.

It's a "Legacy" boost in that you buy it through your Legacy window, and there's a minimum Legacy level required to buy it, (if you pay with credits) from Legacy level 2 for Improved Command Experience I, up to Legacy level 25 for Improved Command Experience V (for the full 10% boost).
