    Liquidious fleshbags that we are, Revan has reappeared in the Light Side Territory Battle Platoons before he is intended to. We will be addressing this with a reward after the holiday and apologize once again for our human frailty.

  • The Road Ahead: 11/09/2018

    Nov 09, 2018, 11:11 p.m. · CG_Carrie - EA Forums

    Hello Holotable Heroes!

    You’ve been asking “Where is the Road Ahead?” and here it is! We are very excited to share the roadmap for the next couple of months. So, without further ado…

    NEW FEATURE: The Grand Arena

    The big feature announcement to round out the year: the Grand Arena!

    Currently, you can be the best player in your server and dominate the PVP ARENA. Or, you can be part of the best guild and defeat other guilds in Territory Wars. However, when we look forward at what we’d like this game to be in the future, a big part of our vision is to answer questions like, “Who is the greatest player in all of Star WarsTM: Galaxy of Heroes? Who is the greatest player in all of the galaxy?”

    While we’re still a few steps away from that future, we are excited to announce the first step toward that vision, which begins with the opportunity to play PVP across servers.

    Here’s a little about what you can expect in the Grand Arena:

    At the beginning of the Grand Arena Event, you’ll be matched with 7 other players from across the game who have a Galactic Power score very similar to your own. In the first round, you’ll be matched up against a random player from your group to essentially fight a mini-Territory War. You’ll then set up defenses to defend your own territories, as well as attack your opponent's territories in an attempt to overcome their defenses. You’ll earn banners for successfully attacking and defeating an opponent’s territory, as well as defending your own territory. At the end of the battle, whoever has earned the most banners will be the winner.

    Each round, you’ll be matched with other players who have the same win/loss record as you, and you’ll never fight the same opponent twice in a Grand Arena event. You’ll earn special rewards after each offensive battle you complete, at the end of each of the 3 rounds, and a final set of rewards at the end of the event based on your standing in the 8-player group.

    We hope you’re excited to have the opportunity to show your expertise in the Grand Arena and look forward to sharing more details and the release schedule in the coming weeks. For your convenience, we’ll track all communication about the Grand Arena here: GRAND ARENA MEGATHREAD

    NEW FEATURE: Player-controlled Payout/Time Zones Changes

    The single most common quality of life request we’ve heard in recent months is to allow player-controlled payout/time zone changes.

    Like the server sharding system, this was a feature that worked for a time, but we recognize you live all over the world, lead complicated lives, and that the forced ‘6PM in the time zone you originally logged in on’ has been a great inconvenience for many of you.

    To help with this, we have introduced the ability to change payouts up to two times a year. (The timer starts when you change your timezone) The ability will be otherwise unbounded, so watch out all of you in Alaska and Greenland, there are probably hordes of people coming for your time zone.

    In conjunction with shardless 1:1 PVP, this begins to give you all opportunities to explore competition outside of your shards, and we are excited about that.

    NEW CONTENT: KOTOR Companions

    With the release of Jedi Knight Revan, we brought one of the most often requested characters into Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes. The excitement in the community has been palpable for weeks, and watching many of you join forces to solve the reveal cypher was a truly special moment for the game team to watch.

    We’re excited to continue the celebration of the 15th Anniversary of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic with additional companions in the coming weeks. Keep an eye out for an upcoming announcement about which Old Republic era characters are coming to the holotable next!


    NEW CONTENT: Original Trilogy

    To round out the year, we’re going to continue our exploration of the Original Trilogy universe. While we’ve dipped into this era previously, there are still so many iconic characters and ships that we want to bring to the game from this time period. You can definitely count on some teases and puzzles from Crumb in the coming months. Stay tuned!

    3rd Anniversary of SWGOH
    And last, but certainly not least, a special note from CG_Carrie: “Three years ago, we started on an amazing journey that, thanks to you, continues to this day. We are so incredibly grateful to all of you for continuing to be members of the Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes community.

    We’ve always thought of you guys like a Massively-Multiplayer Online community and want to honor the investment you’ve continued to make in our game and team. We have some gifts and events planned for everyone to celebrate with us. We will share more details closer to the start of the event.

    I look forward to the next three years as the stories we have to tell continue to unfold, but more importantly, please know that the things you all do with the game continue to astound and impress us.”


    We hope you’ve enjoyed this peek into the future of Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes and wish you the best of luck on the holotables.

  • Server Issues 11/5/2018

    Nov 05, 2018, 05:11 p.m. · CG_TopHat - EA Forums

    Hi Holotable Heroes,

    We are experiencing some server issues again today. We're in the midst of trying to resolve it and we'll update this thread as we have more to report.

  • Hey everyone! I'm extremely excited to say that Revan is finally coming to the game! As you all know by now, he is dropping shortly in the event "Legend of the Old Republic" which will require Bastila, Jolee, Mission, Zaalbar, and T3-M4. This event is a Journey event, but it's a special one as it has a twist I think you'll like:

    Revan joins your party throughout the event!
    Please post your feedback about this event here. I've worked really hard on this one and I hope you all enjoy the event. And, in case word hasn't gotten around, it WILL return. Get as far as you can, I put some great rewards in there for you all. But if you can't get him don't panic! You'll get more chances. Good luck!

  • Hello Holotable Heroes!

    We recently announced our intention to rework Nightsister Zombie during our changes to prevent the “Critolyte” strategy in the Sith Triumvirate Raid. Our decision to change Zombie is to prevent an investment/gameplay strategy referred to as “Paper Zombie”. For those not familiar, Paper Zombie is a strategy in which Nightsister Zombie is purposefully left underinvested (gear primarily) so that she will be defeated much more frequently and easily (in both PvP and PvE contexts). Being defeated frequently is made all the easier since Zombie taunts a lot. In being defeated more often, Zombie is able to activate Asajj Ventress’ Unique, Rampage, more often, giving Asajj a tremendous amount more Offense and Turn Meter, and consequently results in Asajj doing a lot more damage.

    At its core, this strategy primarily breaks a core tenant/rule of the game - investing more deeply in a character should always be better in terms of gameplay outcomes; more health, more damage, more functionality, etc. This is a game about strategic resource management and you should be rewarded for strategically investing in a character. People who did this investment were then punished, because there is no way to “level down” a character. This doesn’t always perfectly hold up, but we do our best to hold to the spirit of that core pillar as much as we possibly can.

    We’ll also say, we realize we waited too long to make this change. Initially, we found the Paper Zombie strategy novel and an interesting use of the mechanics in the game. We love it when the players find something we hadn’t considered as long as it isn’t game-breaking. But over time, we’ve gotten more and more requests to do something about Zombie. “Reset my Zombie.” “Fix Zombie.” “Respect my investment.” So we need to act. Sorry it’s taken us so long to fix her. We believe we’ve done her justice. As a final note, per our previous communications, we will be removing the Old Daka Zeta from all players that have her Zeta’d. We are aiming to refund the Old Daka Zeta from all players that have her Zeta’d in the next update, but we will confirm in patch notes when it goes live.

    How She’s Changed
    Below is the revised ability kit for Nightsister Zombie. We’ve made no changes to her core stats.
    Changes are Highlighted in Green.

    Unlocks at Gear Level 2
    Unique: Endless Horde
    Base: At the end of her turn, Nightsister Zombie gains Taunt for 1 turn. When Nightsister Zombie is defeated while any other Nightsister allies are active, she is revived with 40% Health, which can't be prevented.
    If Nightsister Zombie survived damage from an enemy attack since her last turn, she gains 50% Speed (stacking) at the start of her turn. When Nightsister Zombie is defeated, she loses 50% Speed (stacking). These effects are neither buffs nor debuffs and combine for a maximum of +100% Speed or a minimum of -100% Speed. If Nightsister Zombie is defeated while at -100% Speed from this effect, she cannot be revived.
    • Upgrade 1: +10% Heal
    • Upgrade 2: +10% Heal
    • Upgrade 3: +10% Heal
    • Upgrade 4: +10% Heal
    • Upgrade 5: +10% Heal
    • Upgrade 6: +10% Heal
    • Upgrade 7: Nightsister Zombie gains Taunt for 1 turn at the start of each encounter
    Final Text: At the start of each encounter and at the end of her turn, Nightsister Zombie gains Taunt for 1 turn. When Nightsister Zombie is defeated while any other Nightsister allies are active, she is revived with 100% Health, which can't be prevented.
    If Nightsister Zombie survived damage from an enemy attack since her last turn, she gains 50% Speed (stacking) at the start of her turn. When Nightsister Zombie is defeated, she loses 50% Speed (stacking). These effects are neither buffs nor debuffs and combine for a maximum of +100% Speed or a minimum of -100% Speed. If Nightsister Zombie is defeated while at -100% Speed from this effect, she cannot be revived.

    Unlocks at Gear Level 10
    Unique: Undying Sacrifice
    Base: Nightsister Zombie can revive after being defeated at -100% Speed from Endless Horde. The first 2 times another Nightsister ally is defeated by an enemy attack, they are revived, recover 15% of Nightsister Zombie's Max Health and Nightsister Zombie is defeated.
    When Nightsister Zombie is defeated by this effect, she loses all Protection, dispels all negative Speed effects from Endless Horde and revives with 50% Turn Meter. This effect does not trigger Endless Horde's Speed reduction.
    • Upgrade 1: +10% Heal
    • Upgrade 2: +10% Heal
    • Upgrade 3: +10% Heal
    • Upgrade 4: +10% Heal
    • Upgrade 5: +10% Heal
    • Upgrade 6: +10% Heal
    • Upgrade 7: +25% Heal
    Final Text: Nightsister Zombie can revive after being defeated at -100% Speed from Endless Horde. The first 2 times another Nightsister ally is defeated by an enemy attack, they are revived, recover 100% of Nightsister Zombie's Max Health and Nightsister Zombie is defeated.
    When Nightsister Zombie is defeated by this effect, she loses all Protection, dispels all negative Speed effects from Endless Horde and revives with 50% Turn Meter. This effect does not trigger Endless Horde's Speed reduction.


    Examples of Endless Horde
    Frame 1 - Two positive stacks of Endless Horde: Nightsister Zombie is at +100% speed, acting twice as often.
    Frame 2 - Zero stacks of Endless Horde: Nightsister Zombie is at normal speed.
    Frame 3 - Two negative stacks of Endless Horde: Nightsister Zombie is at -100% speed and will not take a turn. Additionally, if she is defeated in this state and has not unlocked Undying Sacrifice, she will be unable to revive.
    93lrr3evj80l.png

    Commentary on Changes
    The first, and easiest, change to notice is that we’ve made her special ability, Feed, provide a mass heal to the Nightsisters. Coupled with some of the other changes, we wanted to help make up for some of the power that the Paper Zombie strategy provided for Asajj in the Sith Triumvirate Raid, so we added the heal to help bring the team up as a whole.

    Next, we’ve altered Endless Horde. We left Zombie’s constant taunting and reviving intact, but we’ve added some new mechanics to it. Endless Horde is now a way for Nightsister Zombie to gain speed and lose speed. If Zombie is damaged and lives, at the start of her next turn she gains a stack of Endless Horde and goes 50% faster. If Zombie is defeated, she loses a stack of Endless Horde, goes 50% slower, and resets the damage counter for purposes of gaining a positive stack. If Zombie has two negative stacks of Endless Horde (-100% speed) and is defeated, she cannot be revived.

    This was the first step in dismantling Paper Zombie - make constantly dying result in a useless Zombie. Now, we needed to make a reason to go deep on investing in Zombie.

    We’ve created a new Unique ability for Zombie called Undying Sacrifice. This ability unlocks at Gear Level 10. At its base level, the ability prevents the perma-death in Endless Horde - Zombie can now be revived after being defeated at -100% Speed. Additionally, we wanted to add a way for Zombie to clock up a few extra deaths, so Undying Sacrifice allows Zombie to die in place of another Nightsister twice. This does two things: 1) Adds some more defeats to fuel Asajj a little bit more and 2) resets Endless Horde’s negative effects, allowing Zombie to take a turn and taunt again. To prevent her new unique from adversely affecting her, being defeated by Undying Sacrifice does not reduce her speed via Endless Horde. Do note that if Zombie has “revive charges” left on Undying Sacrifice and all of her allies, including herself, are defeated at the same time, no one will revive and the battle will end.

    PvP Experience Changes
    If the Nightsisters were difficult to deal with previously, they will have become even more difficult to defeat now that we’ve updated Zombie. Teams that used to have an easy time beating them in the past will have a much harder time and in some cases even lose their ability to defeat the Nightsisters. Additionally, once Undying Sacrifice is unlocked, Zombie will be able to get out of Fracture, Isolate, and Buff Immunity whenever her new Unique triggers. This will keep her taunting throughout the match and properly protecting her allies no matter who she faces. In general, the Nightsisters' PvP presence has been improved, and we think they will return to the meta, although not to the previous dominance they originally enjoyed.

    PvE Experience Changes
    The PvE experience is likely to be the most varied amongst players. For those players that were using Paper Zombie in the Sith Triumvirate Raid, they will see their scores drop fairly precipitously. Paper Zombie teams will no longer be able to solo Nihilus in Phase 4 of the Heroic Sith Triumvirate Raid. Paper Zombie is dead. For those players that had invested in Zombie (Tanky or Fat Zombie) and invest in Undying Sacrifice, they may see some increased difficulty in setting up the perfect attempt in Phase 3, but should see their scores improve in Phase 4. They should also see Zombie taking a more active role in contributing to the team, rather than acting solely as a passive means of boosting Asajj’s stats.

    We think that this should resolve the Paper Zombie issue moving forward. We look forward to your feedback on these changes.

  • Hey everyone,

    I wanted to hop on and say there was a miscommunication/mistake on our side about when the Bounty Hunter drops were going to go live. Bounty Hunter Bonus Drops are intended to go live from 9/22 through 9/26 at midnight Player Local Time, meaning that for those of you in other timezones you may already see it. We normally put messaging out the day before these sort of drops, but looking at the message we did send out, we clearly didn't do a great job at setting the right timing expectations. We're all still getting in to the office, so there will be some follow up messaging shortly if there are any other inconsistencies.

    I'm going to be working with team to make sure we have clearer/more precise messaging about these sorts of events in the future. Sorry this one caused such a head ache.

  • Introducing Pack Probabilities

    Aug 29, 2018, 12:08 a.m. · CG_Carrie - EA Forums

    Hello all,

    In Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes, one of our key objectives has been for players to fulfill their ultimate Star Wars fantasy by collecting characters from different Star Wars eras to master the galaxy. However, we know players like to play the game in different ways. Some are more focused on competition, some more on the collection components. Some guilds require certain rosters and squads to master the different raids, while others are seeking new yet-undiscovered mechanics by different squad makeups. All of these strategies work, and for players to have the best experience, it’s important to know what you need and how you might obtain it.

    This will now be much easier to figure out with the pack probabilities information combined with the Character Release Cadence, and a number of community tools. Pack probabilities can help aid you in making decisions about what to go for and when.

    Probability Overview
    We’ve been working to put together information on pack probabilities across all the different packs in the store and describe it as clearly as possible. Along with sharing the specifics of our pack probabilities (and some things we’ve updated along the way), we would like to provide additional understanding around how our packs work overall.

    If you’d like to skip straight to the disclosure page, it’s available here and will be direct linked from the details page of every crystal pack in the store after our TU13 client update.

    If you’d like some more specific information about additional changes we have made, please read on.

    upta3fqhzy5s.png

    Pack Probabilities Overview

    1. There are many different packs and pack types in Galaxy of Heroes, many of which have different probabilities. However, there are no “dynamic odds”. We don’t change pack probabilities or outcomes based on any player behavior or criteria.
    2. You will get something of value in every pack. However, as many of you are aware, some of our packs have low probabilities for larger amount of character shards/ship blueprints. For example, a single character marquee pack will most likely net between 5 and 7 shards (more often 7). However, there are opportunities to receive significantly higher shard counts in packs as well.
    3. The pack probabilities are not a guarantee of outcome. Every time you open a pack is an independent event. Getting a high shard count in one pack does not mean you will definitely get a low count on the next pack. The probabilities reset with every pack.
    4. We’ve taken this opportunity to improve the way a few of our packs work. As the game has evolved, we’ve found that some of the previous designs needed an overhaul. As an example, we’re doing away with the “new” and “old” character/ship distinctions, because that’s become a bit outdated and becomes excessively complicated with the more items we have in the game. The probability of getting any one character/ship within a pack will be equal across all characters/ships in a pack (unless otherwise noted). This will mainly be noticeable in Fleet Packs.
    5. Any future changes to the pack probabilities will be updated on the website, and we will make sure to draw your attention to those changes via patch notes.
    We’re hoping these additional changes will provide information that improves your game experience. As always, we evaluate the probabilities alongside other game mechanics and will communicate any additional updates we make in the future.
    And as always, we’ll see you on the Holotables,
    -Carrie
