Purely anecdotally, a few of my fellow commanders have noted that they're really getting bored/frustrated by all Imperial bases running virtually the same layout with the same GR making winning these days more and more of a crap shoot for them as these bases slowly (seem to) become unbeatable. Exception being Hoth where everything is broken.
It makes me wonder if this is happening for more rebel veteran commanders.
The T2B skin was very much a wanted skin for most (including me), but I for one was unable to get an unlock. Not enough time and like Obiwan said the medal requirement was at an old time high.
The Repulsor skin was the only unit I was really interested in months, but I couldn't unlock with my Rebel HQ 10, the conflicts on Yavin and Takodana were insane, while Tatooine only was giving me hard maxed out dev bases. I had only the Obsidian in one and the Bronzium in the other...
When good units are available as conflict/event rewards, there is always an increase in players attacking and being active again... Imperial Astromedic/WED Treadwell are available now in conflicts. We don't see these units since... the last Death Star Event months ago I guess?
Veteran players always return for good units; but instead of giving new units really useful for all players, specially for all those above HQ8, Disney prefers release things as turret droids, horse riders, demolition droids, Bufopels and other craps...
And players still are joining the game, but the number of new players seems to be less now. I always take about 2 h to fill a squad, now I'm taking about 6 h and not getting the full capacity. Most of these new players are non English speakers, most are Spanish speakers, Germans, Russians or Asians.
And as Imperial camping on greens (Yavin now) I am attacked by the same Rebel players over and over in just a few hours... They lose the first, the 2nd, the 3rd attack, but they are always the same players. And when I am attacking as Rebel on greens or Imperial on Tatooine, my rivals are always the same.
