Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes: Jedi Knight Revan Kit Reveal

Capital Games usually post kit reveals before now, but given the importance of this character, they wanted to make sure he was done right – rather than committing too early and then changing his kit. They apologize for the delay – as they know we’re all excited about it – but they wanted ensure our Jedi Knight Revan lives up to that excitement. The team has been working hard over the last few days (and months, really) on Jedi Knight Revan and are excited to share his Kit Reveal over in the Arena and Character Strategy Section. They are planning to release the Ancient Journey for the Legend of the Old Republic this week. We’re pretty confident the event will be ready by the 18th – but there is always a chance with something coming in this hot that they may not finish in time. We will update you if there…

Concept Art for Revan: The Legend, the Hero, the Cash-grabber, the Whale-friend.

Last Friday the Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes developers revealed that Jedi Knight Revan will be joining the Holotable. Here is a behind the scenes look a few SWGOH developers share the process of how we created Jedi Knight Revan – a character you may have played embodied in Star Wars™: Knights of the Old Republic (KotOR) DESIGN INTENT – CG_TopHat (Live Producer) Revan is one of the characters most often requested by players, so this was definitely an exciting but also serious challenge for the team. The most important thing about developing Jedi Knight Revan is to make a character that lives up to the idea of who the character was to fans of KotOR. As KotOR enthusiasts know, in the classic game, players could make decisions over the course of KotOR that resulted in their version of Revan becoming a Jedi Knight. How do we capture that feeling? How do…

Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes: Upcoming Sith Raid Changes

The team over at Star Wars: Galaxy of heroes are making some changes to the Sith Raid. All very good changes to the Sith and Tank raids. Actually, it seems like Tier 6 will end up getting best changes for players. Favorable changes on DN and Traya’s kits and mod salvage will be available in that tier. Not to mention reducing the health pools for all the bosses. I would be a little disappointed in that if not for the fact that I have a 7 star Traya now so the Sith raid isn’t quite as important to me, outside of the g12+ salvage, but that is going to be a grind to craft full pieces (as it should be). Upcoming Sith Raid Changes Check it out below: Hi Holotable Heroes, Two weeks ago I mentioned that we were getting ready to reveal some changes coming to the Sith Raid based…

Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes: Content Update 4/11/2018

Here are the update notes for todays 4/11/2018 Content Update! RAID REWARDS REBALANCE The Sith Triumvirate Raid rewards have been rebalanced. An outline of the reward rebalance can be found in this post: Dev Blog – Sith Triumvirate Raid Rewards – 4/2/18 NOTE: With the flattening of raid rewards, top ranking players (particularly in the Heroic) may see lower drop rates of fully crafted gear pieces, and (for some ranks) lower aggregate numbers of direct gear salvage drops. This has been offset by several factors, including: Increase in quality of complete piece AND salvage drops Higher payout of Guild Event Tokens and Guild Currency We are closely monitoring the ability of the current Stores to effectively sink this currency on the gear and shards players need. In the coming weeks, we will be significantly expanding these stores to provide what players need the most, and with more convenience. Greater benefit…

Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes Dev Blog – Sith Triumvirate Raid Rewards

Here is the latest Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes Dev Blog. In this one  they are talking about  one of the hottest topics in the community lately, changes to the Sith Raid Rewards. The devs are implementing the rewards on the Sith Raid first in our upcoming hotfix update (slated for next week), and will make similar changes to The Pit and AAT in the coming months. We waited until now to make changes because we looked at the data that shows how the first few runs of the raid netted out across many different segments of the player base, then we created tuning that will work for guilds at various levels and factors in the new cadence of the Sith Raid alongside The Pit and AAT. Given the difficulty of the raid, we will be increasing the rewards a bit. Skip down to the meat of the post for this info,…

Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes – Character Release and Event Cadence

Here is the latest developer blog from the guys over at Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes. This one is addressing a lot of questions people have asked, and clarifies the character release cadence and explains the details of Marquee events. Hello my Holotable Friends! Recently Carrie introduced me as Nick Reinhart in the Developer Q&A, but you all know me more commonly on the forums as CG_TopHat. I’m the Live Producer on the team which, admittedly, sounds like a made-up job. The Live team is responsible for the day to day stuff that you do in Galaxy of Heroes. We plan and design characters and ships, events, and raids, are responsible for the tuning of the game, and a myriad of other things. We also schedule the majority of stuff on a monthly basis and we’d like to update and clarify a few things around the character release cadence, as well as Marquee, Legendary, and Hero’s…

Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes: Dev Blog – Communication on Galaxy of Heroes

The devs over at Star Wars: Galaxy of heroes posted a new developer blog were they talk about how they plan to communicate with players in the future. It all seems very promising. They are following through on what they said they would do. Looks like they are taking what has been communicated to heart. We shall see… Check it out below: ntro I joined the Galaxy of Heroes team in mid-2016 to ensure the Ships feature launched on time. By the time I joined much of what makes Galaxy of Heroes special to the players was already defined. Since then, I became the Lead Producer on Galaxy of Heroes, and I’ve focused my efforts on the aspects of our development and processes that needed the most work. Coming from an MMO background, I find myself often making comparisons between MMOs and mobile games. You’re always on the clock. Everything you…

Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes: Upcoming Sith Triumvirate Raid Changes

Here is the latest on the upcoming Sith Triumvirate Raid Changes coming in Star Wars: Galaxy of heroes. These changes are expected to occur next week. Content Philosophy We wanted to take this opportunity to restate our ongoing strategy around releasing and curating new content in Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes. Specifically, we want to provide information about upcoming changes related to the recently released Sith Triumvirate Raid. With each new Raid, our goals are to bring a new level of challenge to the game and to provide innovative gameplay which encourages strategic thinking and “outside the meta” play. We recognize that when a Raid is new, success in the Raid helps define high level competition in the game. Later, when the Raid becomes widely understood, we begin the process of designing a new Raid so players can be challenged again in this unique aspect of the game. We regularly…
