Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes: Event Calendar – August

Here is a list of some of the upcoming events in Star Wars: Galaxy if Heroes for August 2019. As allways you have to remember that all dates are subject to change.  Daily Login Character for August: CC-2224 “Cody” Please note that the team are working on updates for Grand Arena Championships and still determining when Championships or Exhibitions will return. There will be an official announcement in the next couple weeks regarding if we will take a short break from GAC or ready resume right away. I think Padme and Malak will both be sometime in August as well. They just didn’t want to put it on the calendar to give folks time to prepare. Basically, the event calendar is useless. They won’t be giving us information for anything worthwhile in advance. They will do the same thing with Malak that they did last time, 1 day or warning and…

Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes anti cheating

In preparation for the introduction of the upcomming Grand Arena Championships in Star Wars: Galaxy of Heries, Capital is intensifying there efforts to root out and prevent cheating in competitive play. These efforts include: Increased surveillance of leaderboard and battle data A zero tolerance policy for those identified as cheaters (the default action will be a perma-ban for any account found with cheated / hacked data) A new suite of data points and detection tools While we still put player reports to good use (send any suspect behavior reports directly to CG_Leviathan) we are excited about some new options at our disposal for finding illegitimate battles (possibly even before you’ve had a chance to report them). Additional team member hours allocated to the detection and eradication efforts We are focused on creating a fair and fun environment for competitive play and wherever possible, we will attempt to rectify any impact to…

ut0r3xyuse331

Here are the news from Capital Games on the Grand Arena Championships. No one still have a clue what it is about, ot at least what the GP divisions is about, but Wall of text will crit you. (This is a continuation of information about Grand Arena Championship. If you haven’t read them already, please read the previous posts here and here, as some presumptions are made about understanding their context in this post.) Grand Arena Championships are a five-week series of Grand Arena events and Feats. Our goal is for the experience to feel like a normal Grand Arena event with a few bells and whistles, and then gradually ratchet up the competition and drive for the players who make it up to higher leagues in later events, until by the end of a Championship, it feels like the sharpest competition that the game has to offer. In this post, we’re going…

Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes: update on Anakin’s performance

cn-swcw-galaxy-of-heroes-level-4-anakin-01-tc-level

The Community Manager over at Star Wars: Galaxy of hereoes posted a small update on Anakin’s performance in the game. Some players think he is way to powerfull. Here is the news: April 25, 2019 6:14PM edited April 25 “Your focus determines your reality.” Hey Holotable Heroes, I wanted to give a quick update on our announcement last Friday that we were looking into Anakin’s performance and whether or not he is too powerful, particularly where we want him to sit in the meta versus some specific teams like Darth Malak/Darth Revan. Our initial investigation has yielded the following results: Since we released Jedi Knight Anakin’s rework, only 8,000 players have used Jedi Knight Anakin under a Jedi Knight Revan lead to fight against Darth Revan & Darth Malak. That represents less than 1% of the total battles fought by the entire community during this window. Of these battles, JKA is…

Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes Event Calendar - April

Here is a list of some of the upcoming events for April.DISCLAIMER: ALL DATES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE. Daily Login Character for April: B2 Super Battledroid Tinfoil hat time: the return of JKR seems a bit quick. What if, perhaps, they’re using it to hide a legendary event for Malak? No CLS is also really odd. I would’ve bet the house we’d see that. Maybe it’ll overlap with the Daring Droid event like it did last time. Join the forum discussion on this post

Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes: Update on zFinn Changes Coming Next Update

Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes Update on zFinn Changes Coming Next Update

Capital games are finally ready to launch the changes to zFinn in the next game update. Check it out: Previously, I mentioned that we found some additional issues since Tophat’s last post around zFinn’s kit and that we would need to take another pass to fix the infinite loop in Phase 3 of the Sith Raid with zFinn and C-3PO. We had shared a possible solution earlier, but while the changes TopHat discussed prevented infinite loops in Phase 3, in further testing we realized we inadvertently added a new trivializing loop to Phase 1, so we have made some additional changes from the reworked kit you originally saw here. In order to address the Phase 1 problem, we needed to make more extensive changes, which we feel impacted Finn’s core identity. For that reason, we will be refunding the materials spent to upgrade his leader ability. Whatever you personally invested…

Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes Developer Insights: Darth Revan

Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes Developer Insights Darth Revan

Te Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes, CG_SBCrumb, sat down with CG_ParkingInstructor to discuss Darth Revan and where this character fits into Galaxy of Heroes. If you haven’t met CG_Parkinginstructor, he is a designer who mainly works on character creation and was the main designer on Darth Traya, Darth Sion, Chewbacca, and Ahsoka Tano (Fulcrum) among many others. OVERVIEW SBC: So who is the Darth Revan character?PI: Darth Revan is a dominant leader for the new Sith Empire faction and powers up a team by weakening its own defensive capabilities. Darth Revan will lead a very aggressive Sith Empire team that aims to take down enemies quickly but with a different approach than most. Darth Revan’s kit is focused on effectively taking down the enemy leader while applying beneficial debuffs. We think this will be a very powerful character with longevity in PvP and do fairly well in raids. Check out Darth Revan’s kit…

Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes: Marquee Merchandising Changes

Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes Marquee Merchandising Changes

Over the past 2 years, the devs over at Capital games have released many Marquee Characters without re-evaluating the way shards are acquired via the pack and bundle. As it was discussed in the Road Ahead post a few days back, they have been evaluating the release method of these characters, starting with the Emperor’s Shuttle that launched this week. And now starting with the launch of the Droideka, while they are launching it in the classic Marquee style, the devs are changing the traditional bundle to include crystals and adding a new mega pack that will allow players to increase Droideka’s star rarity with fewer crystals compared to the standard marquee, akin to other mega packs. Below are the changes: Marquee Bundle Bundle price will be changed from $9.99 to $19.99 (USD) All Marquee Bundle items/currencies remain the same 1350 Crystals will be added to the bundle This is…

Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes - Road Ahead 2019

Here is the road map for Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes. Contrary to BioWare, Capital Games seems to have big plans for their Star Wars game this comming year. Check it out: After an exciting end of the year with the release of Grand Arena, C3PO, and Han’s Millennium Falcon, the Capital Games offices are bustling again with plans for the upcoming quarters. We’ve spent much of the past few months focusing on the roadmap, including a bold and somewhat audacious five-year vision, but as always, I’m here to talk a little bit about the next couple of months.When we sit down to plan the next year’s roadmap, one of the key things that we focus on is learnings from the previous one. Since so much of the core of the game is collecting and strategizing with the iconic characters and ships from the Star Wars universe, we are constantly…

Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes: C-3PO, Finn, and Phase 3 of the Sith Raid

There is currently a bug in phase 3 of the Sith Raid with Finn and C-3PO. The developers are gonna fix it next year when they figure out whether Finn lead or Traya tenacity is the thing to change: It’s come to our attention that there is an unintended strategy/interaction involving Finn(Leader – Zeta), C-3PO, Han Solo, Chewbacca, and BB-8 that allows players to auto Phase 3 of the Sith Triumvirate (Heroic). As we’ve indicated in previous updates, “when we discover an infinite loop that allows players to trivialize end game content, we try to act as swiftly as possible.” Learning from the issues with our Critolyte fix, we’re going to wait until the new year before we address this issue. We want to make sure we have the time to work through all ramifications of this change before we put it into the game. C-3PO was an interesting character to…
