SWGoH: Should I Buy the Empire Faction Pack?

Empire Faction Pack - SWGoH

The latest addition to our SWGoH Should I Buy series is the Should I Buy the Empire Faction Pack? Added this week, the Empire Faction Packs cost 699 crystals and “each pack awards one card of character shards worth between 10 to 330 Character Shards for Empire characters.” Possible characters include Death Trooper, Director Krennic, Gar Saxon, General Veers, Grand Moff Tarkin, Imperial Super Commando, Magmatrooper, Royal Guard, Shoretrooper, Snowtrooper, Stormtrooper and TIE Fighter Pilot. It maxes out at 10 total purchases, so since Hagar requested that I put my crystals to the test, I decided to spend them and give you all the data.

Empire Faction Pack - SWGoHFrom the 10 Empire Faction Packs that I purchased, I received:

  • 10 Death Trooper shards
  • 12 TIE Fighter Pilot shards
  • 10 Grand Moff Tarkin shards
  • 12 Gar Saxon shards
  • 20 Snowtrooper shards
  • 12 Imperial Super Commando shards
  • 15 Gar Saxon shards
  • 15 Snowtrooper shards
  • 10 TIE Fighter Pilot shards
  • 10 Imperial Super Commando shards

So as you can see, one pull of 20 shards and two pulls of 15 shards were the high end and seven pulls of 10 or 12 made up the majority. Simple percentages for you visual learners out there:

10% – 20 shards

20% – 15 shards

30% – 12 shards

40% – 10 shards

Final Thoughts: If you feel that your Empire squad is weak, as I do, and you have the ability to put 699 crystals into this pack with the probability of getting 10 shards of a character, then go for it. However, if you are hoping to strike the lottery don’t bother. The numbers do not lie.

  1. Thanks for sharing you data! I’ve collected data from various forums of people who bought faction packs (93 packs, Empire or Phoenix) to get better stats, and made a graph: http://image.noelshack.com/fichiers/2017/38/4/1506024409-stats-packs-faction.png
    Of course it’s not perfect, but it gives a rough idea! Feel free to share 🙂
