Do you complete your dalies? You might be a "try hard". Context: Cubs whaled on Executor but only had enough Prestige mats to upgrade the abilities to level 4- about 1300 mats short.

fmftint

Do people not buy them with arena currency? I keep a pile of prestige on hand


UncertainSerenity

I prioritize shard shop currency. But that’s because capital ships are released so infrequently


mesa176750

I do too, but before I spent it on shard shop currency I built a stockpile of over 4,000 pristeige. Now I have over 6,400 and with that I can take 3 capital ships up to max. Not even hoarding, you get lots of prestige from the challenges and cargo ship event that comes around. I'm positive you can be getting around 50 prestige a week without farming SA currency, and since we haven't had a capital ship since the finalizer, you could easily get 2k prestige (needed to max a capital ship) in less than a year if you are doing all the events and challenges and stuff. It's not like he had anywhere else to spend it.


fmftint

I get that, but you should still keep a certain inventory on hand too. Otherwise you get caught with your pants down and end up with someone clowning you on your stream


CubsFanHan

No shit lmao. Learning that lesson now very clearly 🤣🤣


ScionMonkeyRoller

Let's be serious though dailies take less than 10 minutes to complete and most of them are completed through daily farming ritual either for characters or gear. That doesn't even remotely require a try hard mentality or effort.


ultimatedray15

I mean, 13 minutes maybe because of the 10 minute cool down between the 2 squad arena matches. But yeah, dailys don't take long at all. It's literally just part of playing the game.


Tw1987

50 crystal worth for ne


ultimatedray15

I like the Omega and the gear the end reward gives. Sometimes it's shit, but sometimes it gives just what I need


Tw1987

Ya I don’t push arena currently and just go for the rewards so fifty crystals to save 10 minutes of my life waiting is worth it. In return I get kyrotech worth 200 crystals or whatever and other things


alose

The only ones I do not always complete are the arenas.


lord_zarg

Just auto them if you don't care that much, or quit after starting. as long as you log on at 2 points during the day. If your collecting energy every time you can that's easy. For my CLS team i can auto against a padme team and win around 50% of the time, more in the morning at higher rank. Took me a while to realize that just quitting them is almost as little work as not doing them at all for the dailies


mynameisdraked

you can join and quit and it counts


Floyd_19

You can just start one up and forfeit and it counts. I do that when I either don’t have time to play or can’t be bothered with arena that day for whatever reason.


Gorewuzhere

Lmao you do you bro its a game play it!


Varaben

Yeah I never have a stock because so few capital ships are out there and the shard shop is constantly burning it’s currency.


Moist_Sweet

Yeah, I don’t blame Cubs here the way OP is saying


Kingtut28

I'm a casual ftp player. That works with my ships shard so I get neat 1st everyday. I have 5000 prestiges, but it's gonna be months until I get the executor.


GrouchyAd3482

I only have 1600 or so but I just have the negotiator and a semi casual f2p. I’m not planning on going for the executor anytime soon, prioritizing malevolence, but even that is going to take months upon months and I still have had the foresight to keep prestige on hand.


BOJ220138

I do, just for that reason


ThePlaybook_

For me, arena currency barely keeps me afloat creditwise. Having to buy prestige wrecks me.


Lermanberry

That seems like a huge waste when you can get shard shop currency or credits instead. You only really needed 2 decent fleets for all prior game modes combined for the last 3 years. That might change going forward though. Then again I burn through credits and shard shop faster than most other f2p people it seems like.


peterheslop

How are you going to manage in GAC with 2 fleets? You need 2 on defense and 2 on attack minimum (I would suggest a spare in case something goes wrong but that is a luxury)

Hreaty

It takes ~2k to max a capital ship. So 4k is a good target if you want to be prepared, since they have released them in pairs before.


King_Tamino

Did so too. Always enough to max a 5 star ship. Because that’s normally the most I get as f2p


RAWR_Orree

That's pretty much all I do with it. 13,871 prestige left after maxing out every capital ship currently in the game (using arena crystal earnings for Executor). They were so hard to come by back in the day, I guess it's psychological for me now, I just keep acquiring/hoarding them on autopilot... Heheh


Gorewuzhere

I am a ftp tryhard confirmed.


brokestill

I was!


Megamind1986

I never seem to have prestige either, and I am a 4-year tryhard. I’ve always avoided buying it from arena store, prioritized the shard shop currency instead. The passive trickle of prestige is very slow if you’re not actively chasing it. Might be the slowest passive farm in the game.


SpaceCowboy34

Which most people don’t realize because capital ships are released so infrequently


Hreaty

The *active* farm is incredibly slow. Passive is basically nonexistent. That’s exactly why you should have a stockpile.


Tastentier

I used to prioritize credits since I wasn't over the crunch yet. And then I made the mistake to almost max out Raddus and Finalizer. Now I'm in the same situation as Cubs, only with level 5 abilities and a maxed crew ability. Going to take me a while to max it out.


mesa176750

Yeah, I agree with you. Honestly I saw the writing in the sand when the malevolence came out that I'd need a huge stockpile. So I farmed it for a few months from the SA store so I could max out 2 capital ships if needed. Since doing that, I now have 6,400 prestige, granted I still have to activate the executor and level it up.


PreservedInCarbonite

Prestige can be a gear gate depending on the age of the account and how quickly ships were unlocked. However, Cubs only maxed out ships are Executrix, Home One and Chimera. He hasn’t upgraded all abilities on Negotiator, malevolence, Endurance or Finalizer and hasn’t even unlocked Raddus. Crazy he still only has enough to get level 4 abilities on Executrix after skipping all that


Objective_Place7680

Why are you so overly critical of how other people play the game? If you actually watched him instead of just critiqued him, you'd see that he openly admitted it was his own fault for not having enough ship currency or prestige mats. I'm starting to think you have some personal vendetta against the guy because you seem to do way more trashing of him than just watching the content. If you don't like him or the way he plays, no one is forcing you to watch his content.


PreservedInCarbonite

I do watch and generally enjoy Cubs, but for him to act like people who play the game are a bunch of try hards is kind of lame. Saying this is the result of anything other than him just not even playing the game at its most basic level is just silly on his part.


Objective_Place7680

Then explain to me why, if you really do watch him and generally enjoy him, are you quick to run to Reddit to trash him? There are a lot of things that Cubs, Ahnald, UrzZz, Hynesy, Grid, etc do and say that I don't agree with when it comes to the game but that doesn't mean that I have to run to Reddit to crucify them for it. In all fairness, there is no real benefit to this entire post being in this sub other than to trash on someone because there is nothing you say in it that would truly help anyone. You're just saying "do your dailies" which I feel like everyone playing is either going to already be doing them or not care enough about them. This is you doing nothing more than taking a personal swipe at someone. This world is messed up enough as it is let alone to have to try to tear someone down over how they play a mobile game.


PreservedInCarbonite

SWGOH is a time killing hobby for us not unlike watching and following sports. It's entirely possible to watch and follow a sports team, while at the same time being critical of that team, or sometimes laughing at that team. Cubs and Ahnald are like the Red Sox and Yankees. Yes, we can be critical of those team, and have a good laugh when they screw up, and still fans of them.


kyleheth

i love how you argue with people on the thread to get them to be butthurt with you but completely ignore cubs comment above lol. Also if you could post what his other capital ship abilities are levelled to that would be great...cant find them in this thread anywhere


PreservedInCarbonite

Sorry, I was commenting before Cubs commented on this post.


HuuvacsBiggs

He does defend himself in this way more often than not, i for one have stopped watching his content exactly because he says he doesn't care and he makes amateurish mistakes all the time("i don't know what this does"), and it's fine, his game to play, his content to create, he has fun doing it so it's perfect. However sentiments as above seem derogatory to people who have a different approach to the game, who are also entitled to this.


Lermanberry

I'm sitting on 2.5k prestige because I can never bring myself to waste it on my otherwise maxed Raddus or Finalizer. Actually, I don't want to waste the ship building credits more than the prestige, since mod shop >>>> fleets I'll never ever touch, probably. We'll see if the new fleet mode changes that, but probably not. Very few of the maxed capital ship abilities are a huge leap in power.


Balding_Dog

it's pretty funny but i'm not going to bash him because i did the exact same thing when i unlocked malevolance i'm a total try hard by the way


TriPigeon

And this is why I might check out his channel for entertainment, but never for anything related to the actual balance of the game.


GrouchyAd3482

He’s bad with this stuff. On one hand he backs ahnald saying hey I want to keep the community informed and makes all these pretentious opinion/reaction videos but overlooks simple things like prestige. However, you’ll notice in his streams that he misses really basic stuff like prestige. This is why I tend to avoid his content, just because it can be a little, ah, inconsistent And also yeah I complete my dailies lol not doing dailies makes you a slouch, not a casual. There’s a difference. I’m a f2p 3.4M, so clearly pretty casual, but I’m insulted by the assumption that daily activities = try hard. Also whaling on executor is kind of the definition of a try hard whale imo 😂


QuitMessingwithme

I have nothing positive or negative to say about grown men playing video games. But, if you're a grown man who is concerned with how other grown men play video games, then you need to move on with your life.


CubsFanHan

Using the term try hard here was overstating it for sure. If I were to rethink my response I probably wouldn’t have said it that way. All I’m getting at in this reply is I genuinely do play the game casually in some ways in spite of it being my full time job to cover the game on YouTube. It definitely gets frustrating when people expect you to play the game the way they do- so sure sometimes I push back and iterate that I’m not here to be perfect at resource management, dailies and the like. If you don’t like that and that fits the “Cubs is bad at swgoh” narrative then sure don’t follow me over it. I know most of you in here already don’t 😁


StreetStatistician18

Despite your haircut - I follow you and appreciate the content you provide. People here need to calm down.


CubsFanHan

lol I chuckle when people say stuff about my hair. A dude with long hair isn't that uncommon people I appreciate that kind sir! I do feel bad if people were offended by the language I used here- wasn't my intent to characterize the community as a bunch of try hards.


shicks96

Play the game how you want bud, wouldnt take notice of anyone else!


Knewonce

Play this game however you want, but cut that hair you hippie


CubsFanHan

Why would you care about my hair? Even my boomer dad got over it. 😘


Tight_Hat3010

I don't get people who aggetate folk online, and turn around shocked when someone with a channel blurts back. Good job. I'm sure you meant it in all good fun. Unlocked it as well, and don't have enough mats to prestige everything. The ship still rocks not maxed yet. Anyways, a bit tangential thought, but thank you for your videos, and best of luck.


CubsFanHan

I get told a lot that I should never respond to hate. I don't always respond but frankly I enjoy it sometimes & I don't see why being a YouTuber should mean I can't defend myself or correct unfair or inaccurate narratives about me when the situation calls for it. Just me. Thanks buddy!


AshhSWGOH

I'm not sure why people are bashing on you for not farming Prestige mats haha... Why don't we just say "cubs forgot to acquire his material, oh well" and go on with our day?... Being a YouTuber does not imply that you are a perfectionist. You most likely have a tonne of stuff to do both inside and outside of the game. Moreover, from your streams, you appeared to be very enthusiastic about the new ship's release. When you're excited about anything new in the game, you're more concerned with the new thing than with the materials you'll need to get it. When it comes to characters, the first thing that comes to mind is what gear they have, and when it comes to ships, the first thing that comes to mind is how good they are. Anyways! Continue to send those streams and vids to my holotable!


PreservedInCarbonite

I am def jealous of your hair


the-other-bob

So that’s what this is really about! 😂🤣


StreetStatistician18

It's a cell phone game that we spend Tesla kinds of money on - we're all try hards. We're all just jealous that we can't make a living playing video games. Ignore the haters.


h_erbivore

Is spending that much common I feel like Tesla money is like 20-50k lifetime? How much a month? Generally curious to hear from someone who is spending


LoveEveryday

Don’t feel bad, Cubs. I’m in ahnalds guild, I have 7* executor and I can’t max the abilities because I ran out of prestige. You aren’t the only one who didn’t pay attention to that. I just assumed I had it since I rarely use it. Stupid me, I guess. Haha.


CubsFanHan

Lol thx bud. What got me is using arena store to farm shard shop currency. I was using that shit so much to get Kenobi & Executor ready


LoveEveryday

I feel you. I use it for credits, cuz I’m always so low on that due to mods. Now I’m using it for prestige, and I will for a while so this never happens again. I assume you will be too. Lol


Roar75

The problem is that yes you are a more casual player than some of the other YouTubers but being a YouTuber who pays into the game... I think it comes with a level of expectation. I think people get a bit confused by that idea. Yes, they shouldn't jump to conclusions, but also you are creating content first day with the new (usually expensive) toys. And it unfortunately comes with the expectations you are on top of the resources in a resource management game. You should keep doing what you want to do, but you really should ignore comments like this that you disagree with tbh... I don't know that it really helps having you shout into the void at the people. Just kinda means people trolling you have won.


CubsFanHan

A lot of shoulds in your take here. Easy to say ignore the hate when it’s not what you live with. I get hate every day & a lot of the blatant tolling absolutely gets ignored. But I also got no problem getting out in the trenches & defending what I do when people take a shit on it. Perhaps the troll thinks they won but so do I so hey- win win. Fuck the haters thanks goodnight 🤣


Officially_Deceased

Hey man, I don’t wish you any ill will, but you have to understand where certain people are coming from. I am not a Cubs “hater”, but in fact I used to watch you regularly (almost daily). My personal opinion is that you are a content provider on a game you don’t fully understand and don’t care to. You are also right in saying that you being “bad at the game” is being overstated to some extent. The fact is if covering this game is one of your main “jobs/sources of income” you should treat it with more respect. You should not be getting exclusives when you barely understand kits, and when you read them can’t understand them. You shouldn’t be telling people what to do on farming paths when you bypass huge chunks of the game (by telling people your gac score) and skip a lot of hurdles with spending aimlessly. Yes you are successful monetarily by streaming, and kudos to that, but you have plenty of people listening to your advice not realizing they can’t afford to spend $500 and go “oopsie, at least I have donos to cover my massive blunder”…I’m just saying you walk a line between entertainer and product reviewer…when you give ppl advice on how or who to chase next without your due diligence it makes an ass out of you. I saw your other comments…just do your job better. Don’t respond to this. Please.


CubsFanHan

“I get to tell you how bad you are at your job and everything I think you should be doing and don’t deserve but you don’t get to respond please” Sounds like my channel isn’t for you. If those things bother you, I’m glad you left. Cheers. Sorry for responding


Officially_Deceased

Dude…not what I meant at all. I was just trying to say I wasn’t trying to add to the hate


CubsFanHan

Lol. All these expectations you listed are YOUR expectations. Others too. You & them have left. Great! My channel isn’t for you. Learn to live with it. I’m not here trying to appeal to everyone, but the amount of outrage over how I play the game and what a youtuber “should” be to you guys is just your own expectations from a content creator. Not saying you’re adding to hate, but I am saying your take on what I should be is just what you think I should be. If im no longer appealing to anyone my channel will fade off into the sunset. It’s not doing that now, so looks like what I provide still appeals to somebody.


Officially_Deceased

You keep doing you bro! I don’t think you can please everyone, but there is some truth in saying that if you cover something for a living you should have some understanding of it on deeper level than an average joe. Your monetary success is not a direct indicator towards how you well you perform at your job. Unfortunately I know many skilled people underpaid in my profession and vice versa. Again I don’t wish you any ill will, but I do hope you consider some feedback as genuine.


CubsFanHan

I get a well intended vibe from you and I appreciate that. There’s some points that I would love to get across on why I fundamentally disagree with what you’re getting at but I don’t think it would be possible over Reddit. Just hard to adequately do over a text chain. If you ever pop by a stream of mine, remind me of this conversation & I’ll take a second on stream to explain myself more.


Officially_Deceased

Completely understandable! That was kind of my point in the op with saying don’t respond. It wasn’t telling you what to do, but more so saying a nuanced conversation can’t happen over text. I’ll try to pop in on stream and let you “defend yourself” in a proper way. Have a good night man!


derch1981

Lol cubs, that's how you treat CG


Roar75

Apologies if the wording was too strong Just advice for mental health 👍 it can spiral especially when constantly fighting against people who could be ignored Hey, you do you... just be careful


CubsFanHan

That was an unexpected turn 🤣🤣


12AngryHighlanders

Hey man, just wanted to say I love your stuff and I'm always pumped to see you've uploaded a new video! My girlfriend barely plays, but she did hear my playing your reaction to CAT's announcement on my phone and thought you were her spirit animal. Keep having fun!


ManlyVanLee

"I'm a casual player" "Covering the game is my full-time job" You can't have it both ways. Who gives a shit you didn't have the prestige? No one pays attention to it anyway, but the rest sure sounds like you're jumping through hoops to cover a 'mistake'

This comment was not meant to be a slight on the player base at all, but you’re free to see it how you want.


PreservedInCarbonite

It’s possible to appreciate the different types of creators and play styles out there. Keep doing your thing as you are unique, but also, don’t forget those ability mats challenges 🤟😜


Andrakisjl

Oh don’t backpedal now OP, you came to Reddit to call CFH out, if you’re gunna be like that, stick to your guns and stand in your passive aggressive personal attack. I don’t watch his stuff or particular care about his channel, but this was not a classy move on your part, at all.


PreservedInCarbonite

I had a long convo with Cubs before this. I stand by my position that: * Cubs shouldn’t be calling players a bunch of try yards * Content creators are open for criticism * it takes a lot of apathy toward the game to not have enough prestige mats That said, I think I understand Cubs feelings better on this post and about the comments from me in particular and I will make a point to not fault find on Reddit or Twitch with Cubs going forward.


LordTenserJr

He didn’t call anyone a try hard really, you just kinda took that outa context.


Revan_HK

Is it really a narrative that Cubs is bad at swgoh? It feels more like the truth based on the evidence of all the mistakes we’ve seen… Thing is tho, your basically a service Cubs. People watch you and donate to you and the least you can do is not make rookie bonehead mistakes. I guess I’m of the opinion that people should be “try hard” when it comes to their job. Maybe everyone should be as complacent as you towards their jobs. World would be a disaster


CubsFanHan

A few things to respond to on this: 1. It's absolutely a *narrative* that I'm bad at the game. I personally view it as drastically overstated- but naturally I'm a biased party. I win around 70%+ of my grand arenas, have a score of nearly 800K lifetime & feel confident enough to cover the game successfully. I'm not a top tier player and am happy to own that I'm quite average- but IMO hardly "awful" at it. People will see it how they want though and I can't really convince them otherwise. My content never has, and likely never will appeal to the most hardcore players of swgoh. I'm frankly okay with that because even when I'm not trying to appeal to them they rip me for not being up to their standards. Imagine if I was trying to get there lol. 2. My job is not SWGoH. My job is Twitch, YouTube & community management. I work my living ass off at that. The amount of time I spend every day responding to comments, coming up with video ideas, thinking of ways to improve my stream & entertainment value is pretty comprehensive. I only care to be good enough at this game to make it a fun stream and produce fun content. Clearly my content appeals to enough people to make this my full time job. Doing my dailies every single day does not improve my entertainment value, so if I miss my dailies a few days out of the week (which I do) I'd hardly consider it neglecting my job. 3. If I was complacent as a YouTuber & Twitcher I'd never be able to call this my job. Thanks :)


Trouserdeagle

>Doing my dailies every single day does not improve my entertainment value I'd be inclined to agree. By not doing them you gave everyone a jolly good laugh at your expense. Good job.


Pm_Me_Your_Tax_Plan

Maybe if you did your dailies you could make more Executor content for that "entertainment value" lmao


Skinless777

I’d certainly say the Swgoh community while I love it the majority of people, is a very critical and opinionated community and like I’m sure with any fan base, ends up having band wagon ideologies that can be flawed. I’d definitely say that any streamer that loves what they do, is successful in my book and I can tell you really enjoy what you do. It was great hearing your podcast with CG_Miller. While there is a stupid band wagon group that says “CFH isn’t good at the game”, as you said above you have scores that show otherwise and who cares. You love what you do! Id say if anything, the group saying this is just bringing more attention to your channel and brings more potential viewers in after wanting to see for themselves. I think you’ve handled it extremely well and have been able to turn it into a positive. Between you, T101, and a handful of others, I got inspired to start streaming about a year ago and while it’s a small channel, I’m happy with it and just love doing what I do and all inspired from the showmen you guys are. Keep up the good work and don’t let em get you down! Looking forward to continue watching your content!


Revan_HK

C’mon dude, put away the technicalities. How many other games do you cover other than swgoh? Still going strong in DSA? Dragon Championship? Movie Reviews? Swgoh is most definitely your job. Your trying to pull that old adage back of a plumber Is a water technician lol I’m not a hardcore player, your content was appealing to me once upon a time before you went all whinny and bitter. I’m sure you eased off the negative vibes and got back on track, it just saddens me that a prominent face of the swgoh community can’t be more competent.


CubsFanHan

>can’t be more competent. The level of competency I've reached is clearly enough to appeal to the SWGoH community. I am not here arguing that I shouldn't have competence at the game. I'm arguing that the level of competence some of you are saying I should have is not a standard I care to hit. I'm a casual player in many ways, I feel confident in the game, I dont know everything & will happily own those mistakes and even learn from my audience. You're not content with how competent you perceive me as being (though it doesn't sound like you've watched me recently or are classifying me off of a few publicized mistakes). Fortunately for you, you don't have to watch what I do. Fortunately for me, my target market isn't you. The reality of all of your comments here is I am not the content creator \*you\* want.


Mahomie88

You’re not bad at “Swuguh”, you’re just a fallible human that some people like to pick on. People hold content creators to unfair standards. I occasionally get a good laugh out of how wrong some of your predictions are, but I still subscribe and enjoy your content. I think most of us wish we had the prestige (sorry if that was too soon) to have a successful channel or be interviewed about our opinions.


CubsFanHan

bruh my predictions have been so off on character requirements haha. No idea how anyone could get some of them right too tho


Mahomie88

I’ve been about 2/3rds correct. You have to think 1/2 lore and 1/2 cash for CG. Ask yourself what characters do people not have relic’d up yet? I called Cad Bane for JMK. I’m proud of that one.


CubsFanHan

I’m gonna need to see your round 3 predictions then 🤣🤣


supersonicnat45

Bruh


UncertainSerenity

If you think any content creator is 1/2 assing their job you have no idea what it’s like to be a content creator. Playing the game is like 2% of what they do if that


Warlordzair

You need to watch better content creators. Not saying to drop Cubs, but there's a whole world of content creators who set the bar for the games they play.


UncertainSerenity

I don’t even watch Cubs. I don’t particularly care for his content. I just don’t think he is bad at his job because he skips dailies every once in a while


Warlordzair

Yeah I don't personally care about the mistake or Cubs being bad at the game, I just find his excuse he's a content creator first to be in poor taste to content creators that do put in the effort in the games they play.


Pm_Me_Your_Tax_Plan

*cubs proceeds to state that he misses dailies several days a week, which take 10 mins max*


Pfizzyhead

I did. Won’t anymore.


dazdilly

The amount of people who did the lower tier of the contraband cargo event are finally realizing it was the wrong choice for 5 extra shards.


hisroyalnastiness

It was worth doing for me when I was still doing all those awful resistance ship farms, after finishing them I wouldn't do it anymore the ship stuff is too important


naphomci

Just gotta plan right. I've only run into a presitge issue once so far, and it was for 1 or 2 abilities at level 5 for negotiator the day I unlocked it. I'll have enough prestige to bring it all to 6 when I 6 star it soon. Next capital for me is either Raddus or Executor, but both are so far from being used I won't have a prestige issue. All I do the second to last tier on contraband cargo because I still need shards for several of the ships.


JarodTL

Cubs is a causal player that likes to show off the causal gameplay


Qadim3311

I’ve been buying prestige constantly for months and I couldn’t even max the abilities on my 4* Executor. I maxed out Malevolence not too long ago and I’m still not recovered.


DidNotRedditMan

Whales don’t need to do dailies.


domtumms

Thank you for making me feel better about being too lazy to finish my daily challenges.


ApartmentStock434

Jesus shouldn't everybody do whatever he/her or whatever wants to do and how they do it


Hazzadcr16

Cut him some slack, he's just a normal guy playing this game, that admited to spending $600 on one of his videos on the ship. Yeah real normal lol.


Lazaplaza2

says he hasnt upgraded a cap ship for 2 years but barely any prestige, hes likely been skipping events


jabol321

Lol what is his problem. Cubs is not a fucking robot. When i watched the vid about prestige i genuinely thought to myself "yep, that's something cubs would do" and laughed.


CubsFanHan

It is totally my mo and I’ll own it lmao


derch1981

Doing dalies isn't try hard, that is a shitty response from cubs. Whaling is try hard, cubs does that. If you make a living off the game you are not casual lol. What I find hilarious about this is cubs is always complaining about gear crunch and all these gates, but here we see he doesn't finish his dalies and skips easy auto events which a lot of your gear and resources come from. But he also complains there is nothing to do in 5he game but he doesn't do what is available. Lastly if you are a YouTuber/influencer who complains about poor communication or freaked out when Carrie showed some snark, this is rich with him doing the same thing.


brokestill

Absolutely right.


Darth_JarX2

Also, "The game is dying" - Cubs, every three-six months


CubsFanHan

This sub says the game is dying at least 10 times for every time I have. 👌


Championship_Chuck

To be fair, there's 100k joined to this subreddit and one of you, so yeah this subs says everything more often than you do lol. (Edited for spelling)


icarosr92

you are absolutely right.


procrastinatorpac

You are absolutely right about being absolutely right


icarosr92

\*Spider-man pointing to himself meme\*


DukeSi1v3r

I mean tbf doing dailies for the 1500th time isn’t exactly something to do in the game. It takes like 10 minutes, only a few minutes of which is actually playing, and then you’re pretty much done for the day.


derch1981

Which is why it's dumb not to do them.


jgoble15

Who cares?

Prestige the rarest currency in the game - confirmed


Hermitthedruid

Why do people like Hank Leonov give CFH views, then turn around and expect him to actually be decent at the game? Do these people not have two eyes and a brain? There’s some cognitive dissonance going on here, lol.


PreservedInCarbonite

Haha true. But also, it's possible to watch and enjoy Cubs from an entertainment perspective. And yet, how somebody who plays the game full time can so badly neglect daily activities that they don't have enough Prestige is is nuts. Keep in mind, his only ships with maxed abilities are Home One, Executrix and Chimera. None of the 4 ships that have come out in the past 2 years are fully upgraded, and Raddus isn't even unlocked.


JinHoshi

I feel weird now because I have like 4K prestige on standby, I’m stuck at a starring up gate for my capital ships, I only have the Kenobi at 6 stars, have not unlocked the Raddus or the Malevolence yet and seem to get the guild currency for it so slowly. But I buy prestige daily “just in case” as part of my daily morning stuff that only takes me about 15-20 minutes a day of play.


mistereousone

Ironically a couple months ago it was the exact inverse of this conversation. There was a poll on the smuggler's ship mission and how people prioritized the 2nd tier as it was most valuable since you got shard shop currency. I was in the minority that said those ship mats are still important and unless you're buying them you are just now getting to the point where you are done farming them.


DMG_SWGOH

True. You can get good advice on this sub, but most of it is blinded by the need to criticize CG at every juncture, so it can be tough to distinguish advice from agendas. Best to stick to discord for advice.


grayson7789

Come on now, we all know he did this so he can make his “Don’t make this mistake” video lol jk


Cowbell1111

Cubs is right. He is just a normal guy playing the game. He’s no grand admiral.


skuntkunt

Why is this a thing? Yeah his response was a little off, but why go off at someone for not having prestige mats? Why does it matter that much?


LordShamrock

Yep, one of the more pointless posts recently, and there is plenty of competition as well. Cubs fronted up in a video and provided this information re prestige, a shipload of nonsense really


Captain_Bezzers

Its a single mistake and he's punishing himself for it enough clearly. This is his livelihood, he probably is going to lose out on all the revenue he spent on the ship because he won't be able to do streams around it or videos on it properly. We don't need to beat on him too.


mranthr0pic

The phrase “try hard” sure does trigger some of the neck beards who play this game. Lol.


pdiddy7071

I take offense to this. Verbal attack on those of us with neck beards ;)


anormalgeek

You're not a "try hard" for having a stockpile of prestige. You're a try hard for mocking others that don't.


ScruffyNerfHerder66

You guys have to calm down. Everyone makes mistakes. If you hear what he said, he puts all his squad arena currency to SSC (which I do as well), and recently levelled up his finalizer completely. People have real lives outside the game, and I might be wrong but I think he's picked up a second job right now. It's unfair and pety to get this butthurt about one comment.


PreservedInCarbonite

> recently levelled up his finalizer completely. He didn't even fully upgrade Finalizer. He isn't in the position he's in because of squad arena currency. It's because he skips doing daily challenges/activities.


ScruffyNerfHerder66

... okay??? Let him play as he wishes. If he was going "Guys, I'm the best player in the world, this is how to be efficient just like me", sure, that would be hypcritical. But he's not, and he's admitted many times that he isn't super hardcore. It's a mobile game. I consider myself relatively hardcore, and I think you do too, but not everyone is.


PreservedInCarbonite

>this is how to be efficient just like me I think he gets more flak because Cubs kind of did this recently. He started offering a coaching service to people where you would pay something like $50 and he would give you GAC coaching or whatever.


34TM3138

LMAO!!! And people pay for that? A fool and their money are easily parted ways I guess.


ScruffyNerfHerder66

Didn't he drop that? Plus, these are unrelated things, I feel. Resource management =/= GAC strategy


PreservedInCarbonite

If you can't manage your resources to even be bothered to max out the abilities on the meta ships, then yes, that does impact GAC.


naphomci

> People have real lives outside the game, and I might be wrong but I think he's picked up a second job right now. He said in his comment his full time job is covering the game on YouTube. Which is about where my opinion on this subject goes to: he was unprepared for his job.


CubsFanHan

>he was unprepared for his job. Oh shit let me take that up with my boss.


naphomci

My understanding (which admittedly is second hand knowledge) was that it either disrupted your stream, or made it end earlier. Which is as close to taking up with your boss as you would get. I have my own business, so I understand fully the dynamic of not being prepared when you have no boss. I am not trying to make any type of jab at you, just stating that that is how it appears.


CubsFanHan

lol the comments about 'my job' are just highly amusing to me because they clearly don't understand what 'my job' is. From a business perspective this gave me more content to make videos on. Stream was hype & very successful. Nothing in what happened is interfering with my ability to produce content and stream. But I appreciate the career advice.


naphomci

You said in another comment that covering the game on YouTube was your full time job. That is what I was going on. No need to be a jerk about it.


CubsFanHan

not being a jerk, just amused by your "unprepared for his job" comment.


naphomci

Not sure what is amusing about it. You literally described this as your job, and were not aware you were short. Are you saying that my comment was inaccurate?


CubsFanHan

Job = making content about swgoh Job ≠ being a swgoh player What happened actually gave me more to cover on my channel and as such was either neutral or positive for my "job" as it were. It affected me negatively as a player and fan of this game. And created some negative press here on reddit. Nothing new there.


naphomci

Well, if you want to contend that succeeded at your job doesn't require being a swgoh player, than sure, whatever.


Napkinbask3t

1. No one cares about Cubs or how he plays. 2. See #1.


34TM3138

Some people clearly do, otherwise you wouldn't see so many white knight responses in here.


Napkinbask3t

You're right I guess. It's fascinating to me both defenders and critics feel the need to chime in on him. To be honest he seems like a normal player that ended up with a Youtube following, he doesn't really offer much in terms of content (for me).


soloswgoh

The difference is the critics are usually criticizing the game play/poor decisions. The defenders view any of that as personal attacks and defend a person they have never met and a person that doesn't know they exist.


deadnside

You don’t care (and for the record, I’ve never watched him) but apparently some people do care.


Darth_Shibari

How is that clown still relevant for some people? He has shown many times he just sucks at the game, and is not even entertaining. Just watch something else


Deslam8

I’ve never seen so much hate over someone just playing a game the way they want to. You’d think this guy was a nazi the way people shit on him, get off reddit for a bit lol


CubsFanHan

To be fair, I earn it because I respond to it. I'm giving the reddit mob a lot of ammo when I do that, so I'm gonna have to own that


soloswgoh

Couldn't your own advise be used against you? You are defending someone you have never met. Touch grass.


Cowbell1111

Cubs is right. He is just a normal guy playing the game. He’s no grand admiral.


Darth_JarX2

It's pretty "try hard" how many times Cubs has responded to this thread


CubsFanHan

How dare I defend myself and my content


StreetStatistician18

You couldn't tell by the haircut that maybe you shouldn't be putting your everything into what he says?


TheNaturalTexan

You have to make mistakes or you have nothing to do daily videos on!

Tastentier

Only problem is when you checked your prestige by the time Exe was announced and realized you had less than 1k, nevermind the required 1950, there wasn't a whole lot you could do :D I was in the same situation.


Trump_isa_twat

lol


Pm_Me_Your_Tax_Plan

Nice name


punkerjim

Cubs sucks. Also, play the game how you want. You dont want to do 100% every day, ok. You dont want to hoard resources, ok. Also, cubs still sucks.


pertante

When some players take a game a bit too seriously.....


soloswgoh

Who is this comment aimed at?


DangerWildMan26

I normally don’t do dailies cause the arena matches are a waste of time. So I see where he’s coming from


marul_

It's funny how people get offended when he says he's not a try hard; he's not talking about you people. He's also not saying anyone who has enough prestige mats is a tryhard either. Hold your horses.


darthjeary

Im near 7M and sitting on 2700 prestige. I dont have have Hux's ship so I guess I can see how its possible to not have enough, but yes, that is something you should always have 2k spare ready to go.


cupofpopcorn

7M and you don't have Finalizer?


darthjeary

Nope, been putting off gearing Bossk as long as possible (can still get #1 in arena with a g8 Bossk), but that may end with Executor. I have JML, Rey, SEE, and 90% ready for JMK. Then its decision time to do SLKR (Finalizer), Vader, or Executor. Currently cant beat the Finalizer event with my G8 FO and Bossk. Its miserable to try.


Tyinknots

Ya'll are getting prestige points from dailies? https://wiki.swgoh.help/wiki/Daily_Activities


PreservedInCarbonite

One of the Daily fleet challenges gives prestige, plus there are a few events that come for a day that give them.


chinu187

I agree that cubs should not be saying whatever without putting dailies in but then this is all fan based and people listen to a number of people. Cuba probably focuses more on video editing than playing since that takes so long


Glum_Baseball_3

If he’s not active enough to complete dailies he’s probably also not participating in guild activities.


BSUjam

Didn’t Try Hard star Bruce Willis?


RobsMadWorld89

I'm free to pay to free again 😌


Top_Community_7200

Dalie? What's a dalie? I do all my dailies.


Mister_Reginald_

People run out of prestige?


Mister_Reginald_

How much prestige does it take to max a capital ship?


Enspot

Hahahaha haha best thing I've seen this week.


HAL1001k

I never have enough of those ability mats.


ChronicChoof

I thought cubs went f2p?


ISlyAssassinI

Sitting on 5600 here. You don't have to be a try hard to recognize an obvious choke point in leveling capital ships.


Pfizzyhead

Alright. I hate him now.


DrVladimir

Who cares about a bunch of stupid streamer drama
