I might be doing a video on this at some point. But more than anything I am just curious to hear others strategies on this game. Just trying to make sure I’m not missing some strats I’ve never considered.
I’ll go first. I basically have two strategies. R2-D2, start death star modes. Then I light endor and stack death star I and endor III. If I hit death star first I will pass. HOWEVER if I fail to start this stack on ball one I will usually just go with Death Star I to make sure I can get to at least one planet MB. I generally use this strategy if I know I’m going to need 1b+ points.
The second strategy is Han, light tatooine. I focus on getting hoth lit but if I can hit tatooine I will start tat II alone. This way when I come out of tatooine MB I will have multipliers up and can maybe start a 20x+ hoth I (video mode) Because it’s fairly easy to start two MBs as Han I use this strat when I feel like a score of 400-500m will win.
Other general things I try to do… if I am close to a MB and start tie fighter assault I stop before I hit 35 so I can use it as a ball save in MB. Same with hyperspace MB. I try to avoid escape from boba fett as I rarely come away with a ton of points. But lightsaber at 40x can be huge. lightsaber at anything lower than 20x should probably be timed out in a tourney unless you are close to Jedi MB.
If I was going for 10b+ type scores I might mess around with Leia. Supposedly her planet MBs have higher values. But I’ve never really noticed a huge difference. I think R2-D2’s multiplier powers are probably the strongest power.
Is there any reason to ever pick Luke? I haven’t been able to find one. I feel like I got to lightsaber with Luke and the points were not much different.
I’ve also tried mainly going for hyperspace awards/MB. I still started modes but it was secondary to my main goal. I think this is too risky and I still don’t totally understand how the inlanes light the yellow hyperspace shots. But it is pretty fun trying for 1b+ hyperspace shots.
