Valiant - Since the "special objectives" are Heroic Defense "events" and Daily Planetary Objectives you need to wait for them to "cycle".

Tomorrow you should start seeing Special Crates in both Heroic Defense "events" and Daily Planetary Objectives.

No word on how long this will last but I would conservatively give it a WEEK until next Wednesday, 12/7/2016.

Hope that answers your question...

Yeah kind of figured as much, one would think that they would just roll it out along with the update as they are resetting servers anyway, but hey why be overly logical - no Vulcans here.

I'll enter my guess that the special event last until 12/16/16 though the frags provided may change.
(just pulled that date out of thin air) ;)

Always good to get new content and helps to build more excitement about the release of Rogue 1 too! Still waiting for those Death Troopers though. ;-)

Only downside is we have a new merc unit and still only 1 Cantina. :( It will need to be pretty special to be in my loadout if it means waiting another 5 mins 45 secs to build it in my Cantina as well as the Gamo & Lugga I currently cook!!

UPDATE - Event Cycle and First Look Screenshots

Got my first look at what could be referred to (for the Rebels) as a Kada Jahr Special Event.

EVENT CYCLE:

  1. I have confirmed that the Daily Planetary Objectives still "cycle" in 24 Hour increments only NOW the start/end at 11:00 AM PST U.S. Pacific Standard Time (7:00 PM UTC).
  2. Heroic Defense "events" cycle every 12 hours (I was hoping for a 4 hour cycle... oh well...) :cry:

I've ground out quite a few of these orange crates (HD ones, anyway) and one thing I noticed is that they only seem to award Elite Fragments for Rogue One units. eg Shoretrooper, Heavy Shoretrooper, AT-ACT and the two new units, the Security Droid and the Tie Striker. I can't confirm but it would be logical to assume it's the same for Rebels.

Good time to chase those ACT fragments, Imps! Especially since it's sometimes awarding 4-frags over the regular 2..

Thanks Euph for Posting! :D

I posted the start of Equipment Rush Event #3 here.

It will be fun to try out the new Units once I have them Unlocked / Upgraded (I rarely use the Free Units until then).

Continuing the Discussion...

Phshaw. I wish. I've earned three of the dumb crates. One of them had fragments for the Fang Fighter, but the others were Senator Leia and the Jungle Commando. Dumb dumb dumb.

Well, I was looking at my screenshots again and I ran across one that lead to a question...

Hmmm.. Does This Image Reveal Duration Of Rogue One Special Event?

Image

The "ability" to purchase the Premium Weapons Research Crate is available for 6 WEEKS and 6 DAYS.

If this is related to this LIMITED TIME EVENT than maybe the Rogue One Special Event will last until Mid January 2017! :o

Comments?? Thoughts??
