    So the changes to RotB
    • The event will become irregular again.
    • The limit in force points is now 50k, instead of 30k.
    • The event is a week long again.
    • At least for this event, the 5* drop rate is 10%
      • I'm not buying this at the moment because I've had over 25 boss battles over 3 accounts, one with a boss boost for 247 EP and no 5* yet. Based on math, there's a 7% chance of that happening.
    • At least for this event, the boss boost hasa a 3 times higher chance of happening.

    *I'm glad they raised the FP's.
    Going back to the old way are they planning on something new?
    I have not seen a 5* yet also on three accounts.

    I like the longer, more sporadic, less regular approach.

    1 boss boost, no 5*s yet.

    The 10% drop rate is for crystal packs, not rotb battles.

    got an old han so far. 4 boss boosts total today too, so the tripled chances are definitely for real.

    I thought I saw a 10% drop rate for 5*s in RotB when I accessed the page for the first time. If anyone has an alt and NOT YET accessed RotB, can you do that and make a screenshot of that pop-up? That would make clear what I should've read instead of what I thought I read.

    5th boss boost today. there was also a boss on the first spot that im currently on in the picture, so 18 bosses total on this map alone. pretty sure this is the max number of bosses you can have on a map.

    Personally I feel like, they went like, "Lets give them a week long rotb, give them boss boosts every second map." -"That's awfully nice, we should gut the 5 star drop rate to under 1%" -"Awesome!" -"Awesome!"
    Seriously though, I gathered over 6k force points already, no 5*

    Nothing new there. As far as I remember it has been long established that the 5* chance in RotB is about 1 in 300. And although I'm not counting it this time , I would say it feels like they didn't change that.

    Also the 20 point ratio is so high during boss boosted.

    Drop rate almost the same as before lower boost but more force points now.

    I stop 15 alts at RotB as I don't want them level up too fast. Only play 3-5 expendables.

    I ended up with some 5*s as well. 2x HoK and 1 Luminara. Also at least one card I can't remember.

    Did we have Leia in this cycle? Then I got that one too.

    Does anyone know if Boss Boost is triggered randomly when you open a ROTB map or at random time intervals? If it's the former then having high EP gives you a big advantage; if it's the latter, your EP total wouldn't matter.

    For as far as we know, it's triggered randomly every time you enter a new map. So having a high EP when entering a map would be better for you.

    To me it happens so often now that it doesn't matter anymore though.

    Thanks! Now I just have to build a cheaper form that can handle the medium level boss fights...
