With locked hero Luke Skywalker requiring the playtime equivalent of 40 hours or so to net the amount of credits required (60,000) for unlock. Reddit users
have taken the time to work it all out by getting an average of the number of credits earned per round or match and then factoring that into each hero cost. Minus of course, the other ways to earn in-game currency.
Which does also come after completing daily challenges and other milestones across all the game modes. But even so, it seems that getting to play as all of the following heroes will be reserved for the most dedicated players.
- Iden Versio: 20,000 Credits
- Chewbacca: 40,000 Credits
- Emperor Palpatine: 40,000 Credits
- Leia Organa: 40,000 Credits
- Darth Vader: 60,000 Credits
- Luke Skywalker: 60,000 Credits

Average Galactic Assault Match Length: 11:09
Average Credits per Match: 275
Average Credits per Minute of Gameplay: 25.04
