The event type has been labeled as an Arduous Legendary by CG in the monthly calendar. The start date is still TBD.
Bounty Hunter bonus drops are being added to help with preparing for Chewbacca [Link]
JTR confirmed to come back March 15th. Event has been added to the official March calendar. Yes, the event is back early compared to CLS. There's still a chance that it could return again in April/May.
We will hopefully see the event return sometime March
If we look at the the CLS event, there is 140 days between when CLS first came and returned. If we look at JTR, 140 days from Dec 15th is May 4th. Coincidence? Maybe.
BB-8's event is most likely coming back in February. There is a spot open Feb 15th-20th.
Imperial Chimaera is going to run 8 days this time so that it overlaps with the Home One event. [via CG]
Imperial Chimaera has been confirmed to return on Jan 18th. It will end before Home One starts.
Rumors of Imperial Chimaera returning on Jan 18th (from datamined info).
We've been thinking about how CG will be handling events going forward. So far, the events have been released on a cadence and we can estimate when the events will return. However, they are constantly adding new events and bringing the old ones back. We are already had a point where there are several events going on at any moment in time (which is a good problem to have).
We believe that pretty soon (if it hasn't happened already), CG is going to release events at any point that fits their schedule (instead of on a release cycle). They've already made an announcement that they are doing this with Credit Heists and Droid Smuggling events. It only makes sense that they do this for all events.
Now some events may still be scheduled, but it will be interesting going forward to see when events return and if there is any pattern. Unfortunately for us, that means it'll be harder to estimate events, but we will have to wait and see.
Lots of questions around when this event will return. A lot of people think that there won't be another Home One event before it returns (because CG). If it follows the Legendary cycle, it may not return until around Feb 8th. We'll know more at the beginning of January. Since this is a new event type, it's up in the air when it'll return.
We are estimating that Rey's Hero's Journey event will return sometime in April. This is 4 months since the event first happened. This is based on Luke's Hero's Journey taking 4 months to return. The 4 month timeline is an estimate; CG can and will change this as they need. That being said, if you really want to get RJT, then you should start farming the required characters now.
Luke Skywalker's Hero's Journey has been confirmed to return December 28th, 2017
The What's Ahead from the content update says "Who's in Command here? One only has to Look." Possible reference to CLS coming soon?
Since BB-8 was brought back early for the Rey Hero's Journey event, we believe that BB-8 will still return in January 2018, somewhere around the 18th. This isn't the first time that CG brought an event back as a bonus, and after the bonus event, it continued on its normal release cycle.
There's a rumor going around that CLS may return after Christmas (2017-12-25) and before New Years (2018-1-1). We'll have to wait and see.
It is confirmed that the event will require Rey (Scavenger), Finn, BB-8, Veteran Smuggler Han Solo, & Veteran Smuggler Chewbacca - all at 7 stars. This will unlock Rey (Jedi Training) at 7 stars.
BB-8 is returning on 2017-12-08.
BB-8 is officially on the calendar for Dec 8th which most likely means he will be needed to get Rey.
If BB-8 is needed for Rey's Hero's Journey, then it is likely the event is going to return on 2017-12-7. If that does happen, it may be a bonus event and BB-8 will come back again around 2018-1-18. We will find out more concrete information later this week.
We moved the CLS date back. Originally when the CLS event was set for Dec 5th, we were thinking of the earliest possible time that we thought CLS could possibly return by. This way, everyone would be ready for CLS. The original estimated date for CLS wasn't until January and we didn't want to be the reason that people weren't prepared. Now that we are getting closer, we pushed it back. There is still a good chance that the event won't return until our original estimate, January.
CG has announced that we will be getting double drops from Nov 24th - Nov 25th. We will also be getting a special gift on Nov 22nd. They will also be running a 25% crystal promotion beginning Nov 22nd.
Vets will be farmable on Cantina nodes starting November 22
Post from Kozispoon says CLS will be coming SOON
Credit Heist no longer follows a cadence and is released as needed by CG - More Info
The return date for this event is a toss up. We think December is a good date to target. There is a good chance it may not return until January/February though since December will be busy with the TLJ movie event.
Since we've never had a Hero's Journey event, it could be a 4 month rotation or even a 6 month rotation.
Rey's Hero's Journey was annouced.
Possiblity of other events surrounding TLJ release
Few details are known except that there is a Rey's Journey and Rey (Scavenger) will be needed. The event was said (by CG) to start with the theatrical release of Star Wars™: The Last Jedi this December.
Since FO is November's login character, definitely focus on FO
Lots of rumors that BB-8, Veteran Smuggler Chewbacca, Veteran Smuggler Han Solo, Rey (Scavenger), and Finn will be needed at 7* to unlock a new Rey character
If this happens, the BB-8 event will return in November/early December
