Keep in mind that there are many ways to earn credits
Credits that are used to enhance your cards and build vehicles can be obtained from progressing through quests and fighting in battles. You can also obtain credits by selling cards and earning rewards from events. The '3 Star - Shaak' and '4 Star - Carbonite Han Sol' cards have no use in battle, but are special cards that can be sold for large amounts of credits. Selling evolved cards also further increases their value. As such, if you obtain these cards from rewards from events, evolve them to the max before you sell.
Gather blueprints for vehicles to help enhance your attack capabilities
Blueprints are completed by collecting six pieces. You can obtain blueprint vehicle pieces, such as X-wings and TIE fighters, by progressing through quests and winning battles. Once you've completed a vehicle's blueprint, you'll be able to construct the vehicle by using credits. Additional completed blueprints level up your vehicles.
Keep in mind that vehicles are different from ordinary cards. They are larger and use multiple slots in formations, but they have high HP and long range. Some of the vehicles have special abilities where they can attack multiple units at the same time. While there is a risk of destroying your vehicle when you lose a battle, you can reap special benefits if used wisely.
Additionally, after collecting several high rarity cards, you might start to feel that the Vehicle cards you thought were strong, at the beginning, aren't quite at the level you would have hoped for. In those cases, try assigning 'Pilots' to those vehicles cards. When a pilot gets on board, it will give bonus ATK and DEF based on its suitability and will strengthen the vehicle.
Don't underestimate the power of the Starter Card Park
The Starter Card Pack is a very good deal pack that can offer usable Short range cards as well as Medium and Long range cards all in same Force side. It even offers bonus credits and AP! This is highly recommended if you want to use crystals for the first time but don't know what to use them for.
Trade with allies using the 'Wishlist' feature
The 'Wishlist' feature allows you to find that certain card you're looking for. Check your ally's wishlist frequently, and if you find cards that you want, send a message and ask for a trade. If you have a card that your ally wants, the trade will be quick and easy. Plus, this will help you obtain cards that you want more easily than drawing card packs. Even if you don't have cards that your ally wants, don't give up yet! Propose a trade with other cards or items, and they might just accept. Also, don't forget to use the "Search" feature that is built into your Wishlist to find new trades and allies.
Join (or form) a Legion to earn special advantages
If you find good allies that you get along well with, form a Legion. If you form a Legion, you can earn various advantages like access to the chat function, testing your formation with a mock battle, obtaining card tickets and blueprints in Legion shop, and much more. Furthermore, by participating in 'Legion War' events, you'll have chance to obtain various rewards including rare vehicle blueprints. Challenge yourself to be the best Legion in the galaxy by gathering all your Legion members forces.
Basic PvP strategies
First try to assemble six high DEF short range cards in the front row and twelve high ATK medium or long range cards, which is the basic formation. Don't forget to Enhance each card to its max level. It's also more effective if you can Evolve them to the max.
If you have this basic formation and are still unable to win, try leveling up the Skills of your cards. If you enhance the abilities of your cards in the formation to a high level Skill, each card can show abilities similar to cards that are a level or more higher in rarity. You can also try using vehicles instead of medium or longe range cards. Together with its long range, vehicles with a high affinity pilot will deal the enemy a huge damage.
Lastly, if your level is low and you don't have enough cards, you can always enlist the help of an ally during battle by becoming allies with players that have strong leader cards.
