    If you want to stall for a couple days, if you've got a 1* or 2* Polestar, I believe the quantum cost is much lower. Reset the clock by a few days.

    If you're going to retrieve a 1/2* to then airlock, you might as well let your quantum sit at max. You will still have max at that later date and you avoid wasting credits on that initial crew retrieval.

    Are all of your 5* crew FF right now? That seems like a lot of wasted usage to have 34 5* cites sitting around.

    Forget opening portal packs, I’d like a portal update before my next retrieval! :wink:
    I would be happy if the Celestial Market goes live before my next retrieval (No chance, quantum is 847/100)

    I've got about 40 Legendary citations. I sit on them until I pull a crew worth it. Just burned some on mycelial culber.

    Oh, I really could use them, but I got them all from the recent honor sales, and I wanna see the update before (specially with the 100+ portal pulls)

    It was mentioned on the June Timelines Talk by Ben that the update "would not happen this month" (ie: June). This was the TLT where he demoed the Celestial Market. The implication was the Portal Update would happen this month, July, but he did not outright say it would.

    It seems clear they want to get CM out to the players ASAP but whether that means they'll do two things at once is unclear. At a minimum, CM is going live this week; whether that's Mon, Tues, or Wed probably depends on any glitches with the forced app update on the 19th (Monday). I've been assuming once CM gets off the ground, the Portal Update is the next thing they want to do.

    Bottom line: not outright said it will happen in July but everyone has made a reasonable assumption from the tidbits that have been said.

    If I was a betting man I'd probably say August, and late. We're deep into July now with the CM still to launch, and we still have the Elusive Treasure -> Portal Update cycle to happen.
    Plus with updating the Crew Retrieval system too I imagine this takes a little bit more work to do.

    Another excellent example that WRG priorities mostly don t match with the player base ones. 😐

    Just delay the „great“ CM and get us the long overdue Portal Update, what many ppl are asking about for MONTHS! Been 9 months already since the last update.

    Well, whatever. Nothing will ever change i guess. 😞

    My need for polestars won't come until I have retrieved 2 or 3 crew post portal update. I have my polestars lined up for for crew I want that should be entering the portal.
    I am definitely in need of a portal update before the CM. I am also in no need of more ISM. I really hope the delay between these two releases is very minimal, or that they happen at the same time.
    Hey, what about a mini event with the rewards of credits and quantum?? That would be a very exciting way to earn a couple retrievals through gameplay and competition that would speed up the need for polestars, and would likely give the CM a good boost to start off. I know this was off topic, but it just occurred to me.
    Long story short, a port update would make the biggest impact on my game right now and would be the most exciting thing they could do.
    I consider myself one of the biggest supporters of crew retrieval, and the CM sure sounds... "nifty", but I can't say I am excited for it.

    At this point launching the CM first is easier for the players. Players know what's available, they know what polestars they need for the crew they've been targeting. If CM launches now players know what they want to target. To change the pool just before you launch throws all of that into question and players need to re-evaluate what to target.

    I have so many crew I need stars on that unless you're the biggest whale with almost all FF 5*, I find it hard to believe that there is no crew you want in the current CM without a portal update.

    See, I’m the opposite; I’m thinking next week, the 27th to be exact (at least, that’s what I’d do). First, any serious glitches (ie: would stop gameplay) with CM would show up pretty much immediately, so once it’s off the ground that should give them time to focus on the update. Second, doing the PU on the 27th creates a perfect 6-month crew break; it was during a repeat, just before a Mega, only the Tuesday Pack card is added. Same thing as next week too. And third, on your point about the Elusive Treasures cycle, remember that they did those packs the same week as the last update; so it’s less a cycle and more they happen around the same time.

    But, as always, this is guess work. The Portal will be updated when it is updated. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    I will say, I don’t think I can wait another month for this update. I’m sitting on a ton of packs and I’m even holding onto cits, because of all those packs. And I’m just dragging through events right now. Something has to give.

    Like you, my patience is being tested. I have a stack of packs and most of my cits from the last honor sale. The Portal update can’t come soon enough.

    ...I think that applies when you open 100 packs of dupe SRs right? :p
  • well, my quantum will be all ready for a retrieval tomorrow…. perhaps just in time for a portal update? :innocent:

    Thanks! Finally immo’d Borg Queen. Although she’s missing a few traits IMHO she’s one of my favorite characters in the game! As I got her from her mega just after I started playing I only got 2 copies instead of 4. Now she can finally have her true potential :wink::smiley:
