Many of our strongest characters are released in quick events as bursts of excitement, however we also want to diversify our event experiences. By slowly revealing the requirements and leaving the events open (once you’ve met the requirements), these events serve as a long-term goal for veteran players to work towards. As we’ve mentioned, Galactic Legends unlock at 7 stars, but unlike many other events, you don’t need to reach the final tier of the event to achieve this. You’ll…

Do Video Games Affect Academic Performance?

If you spend many hours (50+ hours) a week playing video games, then there’s a problem. But if you spend a few hours (5 hours max) a week playing video games, your academic performance shouldn’t be affected.
