So, in the Research Lab, can we be upgrading Troops and Equipment at the same time?

Interesting concepts. Hopefully the bugs get worked out in the next two months before the port to Windows.

Already noticed one bug or oversight. Activated the hq reinforcements bonus, the clicked info on the HQ, and the hit points didn't change on that page.

I'm not seeing anything in this armory that's exciting. Maybe I reading it wrong but it all looks like a giant crystal sink to me

Well I am upgrading my armory. I activated the hq bracing equipment before upgrading to level 2. While the armory building itself is bein upgraded, I got attacked and in the replay my HQ was glowing red. So the equipment is active while upgrading from level 1 to 6. You just won't be able to change what equipment you use while upgrading.

Nope. Check the first post. While upgrading an Equipment item you cannot use the Research Lab for other work. :(

This was announced at the Star Wars Celebration Europe 2016 which you can read about here.

Equipment Data Fragments

  1. They appear in Supply Crates, a system which has not been too good in prior implementations. Maybe something has changed?
  2. Players must collection a certain amount of data fragments before they are able to unlock Equipment. This sounds very similar to the Droid Parts "idea" described by Bradley Crusco in my Thread found here.


From the 2 crates I have collected so far, it seems that we are now getting 2 rewards from the crates. I got a supply reward (credit/alloy/contraband) like before AND I got some of the new data fragments.

Given the fragment requirements (you need a bundle of them to get the stuff and the fragments are not generic, which means that fragments for one upgrade are not transferreable to other upgrades), getting a guaranteed drop of at least a few at a time allows for progress to be seen as opposed to only needing a few of each and making them hideously rare to find.

Thumbs up so far on this part. :)

I think this is good news. The game goes on and develops.

You must do what you think is right, of course.

Armory Data Fragments - How To Get

In case no one has figured this out yet - you can get Equipment Data Fragments by completing HQ Level 6+ Daily Planetary Objectives - AND - Heroic Defense "events".

HQ 6+ Daily Planetary Objective Tier 1 Crate - HQ 10 - Rebel Faction

HQ 6+ Daily Planetary Objective Tier 2 Crate - HQ 10 - Rebel Faction
Image

]HQ 6+ Daily Planetary Objective Tier 3 Crate - HQ 10 - Rebel Faction
Image

HQ 6+ Heroic Defense - Carbonite Crate - HQ 10 - Rebel Faction
Image

HQ 6+ Heroic Defense - Durasteel Crate - HQ 10 - Rebel Faction
Image

HQ 6+ Heroic Defense - Bronzium Crate - HQ10 - Rebel Faction
Image

IMPORTANT NOTES:

  • You DON'T SEE Data Fragments for HQ 5 and Lower.
  • Collected Data Fragments appear in either the Armory (most likely) or maybe even the HQ Buildings Tab (nice but not expected).
  • Basic Data Fragments can ONLY be used on Basic Equipment (like HQ).
  • Advanced Data Fragments can ONLY be used on Advanced Equipment (like Turrets)
  • Elite Data Fragments can ONLY be used on Elite Equipment (like Heroes)
  • Of course we are still subject to the "...and more!" Supply Crate "Lottery"
Keeping Everyone Informed...
