That's probably partially true, at least for all people that work and play. Getting 900 points is a much higher toll than getting 450 points (level 10). The 450 points, I can get in more or less 10-15'. Units rebuild during the 2h. The 900 points, I need more than the double of that, because I have to wait for a full rebuild at some point.

I've found myself in Group B - 720 EP for HQ9, 24 frags in first reward crate. Disney will be happy with the devs....I have used more crystals with the EP events than any other time in this game.

I lucked out and got Group B- this is insane and averaging 23 Frags per crate. Millennium Falcon Support is the most predominant frag given.

I was in the fast track group last time. I believe that was group A.
I am in group B this time. Looks like the previous grouping might not determine the current grouping.

The difference between groups A and B this time is incredibly huge and incredibly unfair to group A players. :shock: So much that I created this forum account just to voice how upset I am about that -- before I knew which group I was in. (I was the kid who would complain about uneven teams when playing sports in school even when I was on the good team)
On that note, hello everyone! I've been a silent reader on this forum for a long time, but now I finally got around to creating an account. :)

Same here, except the opposite. In the previous events, I've been in the bad test group with higher EP cost most of the weeks, with both my accounts. This time I'm in group A.

Theoretically, the rewards that could have taken me 5 attacks and 2 hours will instead take me 6 attacks and 4 hours -- but that's if I had time to log in every two hours. The truth is that I'm simply going to earn half as many fragments as I would have in group B. The double EP would take me 10 minutes extra to earn, and then the next time I'd log in, there'd be double rewards. That's an incredibly unfair advantage to give to some players over others.

There's 2 more stages to this event.

The groups may possibly randomly change between rounds. (next weeks event vs this weeks event.)

Also, note that earning the EP to progress takes a lot of time. Let's say 40 minutes. I might only have 20 minutes to take a break to play. One could potentially get the same frags in Group A as Group B if they can't allocate as much time in big time blocks for the game.

I'm in the 450 group, but as a lvl 9 that means 360 and if you ask me that's perfect. I need 8 stars to start a crate. My time to do such a thing is between 10-40. Needing to do 900 would've easily doubled that, but for double the reward.
Ultimately it's easy for me to get a quick 15 minute session in to start another crate.

I fully expect them to switch the groups around next round and I don't think I can grind quite as many crates with 900 ep.
