I wanted to take a moment and go a little deeper into our new Login Rewards system!
What Is the Login Reward System?
The Login Reward System is a new way to earn rewards each time you log into the game. All players, regardless of their subscription status, are eligible to participate.
In addition to the Login Reward, Subscribers are eligible for a Weekly Bonus Reward! Subscribers who log into the game at least 4 days during a week will be eligible to claim their Weekly Bonus Reward, which will vary from week to week.
Earn At Your Own Cadence
One of our primary design goals for the Login Reward system was to allow you the opportunity to progress your Reward Calendar at your own pace, without missing rewards! As such, the system tracks accumulated logins (think of a punch card), providing you with a reward every time you log into the game.
This means that if you log into the game for the first time on Monday, you earn your first reward. If you do not long into the game again until Friday, you still earn your second reward, as that is your second login. This continues until you have completed all 28 days in a Reward Calendar. Our Login Reward system does not have a timed expiration; you may progress the Reward Calendar at your own pace, be that 28 days, or more. We want your experience logging in to be a positive one, any time and every time.
The Login Reward system comprises 3 different Reward Calendars, each being 28 days in length. When you log into the game, you will be assigned 1 of the 3 different calendars; Strength In Allies, United Efforts, or Aggressive Negotiations. While the majority of the rewards are shared across all calendars, each of these specific calendars comes with their own calendar defining rewards based around their theme, or associated gameplay system.
- Strength In Allies - Companions. As you progress through this calendar, you can expect to earn various levels of Companion gift qualities and amounts.
- United Efforts - Crew Skills. As you progress through this calendar, you can expect to earn various levels of Material qualities and amounts.
- Aggressive Negotiations - Warzones and Galactic Starfighter. As you progress through this calendar, you can expect to earn various stims, adrenals, and Requisition grants.
Once you have completed your 28 day Reward Calendar, you will be assigned a new Reward Calendar on your next login, and can immediately continue to earn rewards.
All players, regardless of their subscription status, are eligible to participate in Login Rewards! Rewards may only be claimed once per server, however almost all rewards which come from the Login Reward system are Bind On Legacy. This means that even if you logged into your main character who doesnt need a particular item, you can still claim your reward and simply pass it onto another character on your account at your leisure.
As you progress through a Reward Calendar the rewards and the reward amounts will become more and more lucrative, and will include:
- Credit Chips
- Scavenged Scrap
- Assorted Droid Parts
- Jawa Junk
- Kai Zykken's Satchel of Dyes
- Cartel Certificates
Every 7th login you can expect to find a chest waiting for you, filled with various rewards including a calendar-defining reward and the following (based on the login number):
- Purple Sparkle Powder ( 7th login in a calendar)
- Tech Fragments (14th and 28th logins in a calendar)
- Credit Chips (21st login in a calendar)
- Personal Conquest Requisition (Grants 50k Personal Conquest points - 28th login in a calendar)
- Legendary Embers (28th login in a calendar)
Subscriber Weekly Bonus Rewards
In addition to the Login Reward, subscribers are eligible for a Weekly Bonus Reward! Subscribers who log into the game at least 4 days during a week will be eligible to claim their Weekly Bonus Reward, which will vary from week to week.
These rewards are designed largely as time savers for Subscribed players, and include the following (to name a few):
- Personal Conquest Requisition (Grants 50k Personal Conquest points)
- Valor Token (Grants 6k Valor)
- Badge of Renown (Grants 160k Renown)
- Crate of Universal Prefabs (Grants 1 of each MK-1, MK-2, MK-3, and MK-4 Universal Prefabs)
We hope you enjoy this new and exciting system, and look forward to your feedback!
