Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes: Grand Arena Season 7: The Empire Strikes Back

Starting next week, Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes got a brand new season of Grand Arena Championships, and with the 40th anniversary of Empire Strikes Back happening during this GAC, Capital games thought it would be an excellent idea to theme the GAC with that movie in mind to celebrate!

This month is 3v3 battles, so think carefully about who you set on defense and what you might expect to face.
