Has anyone tried this game. Its a cellphone/tablet turn based game based on the star wars universe. it is a free to play with lots of microtransactions, but you can play without cost.

i have become obsessed with the game, and as an ewok lover i did spend money to buy the ewoks characters.

has anyone else tried it?

I play this on a daily base and I love it, actually its the first thing I do when waiting for fresh coffee in the morning :p

Currently I am farming for Old Ben shards and equip/mod-pushing my anti-R2-team.
Didn't spend a cent for the game since EVERYTHING is available Free2play, just takes a little longer ?

I am completely addicted now. i login when i get up to get my morning stuff. I only bought the 3 ewok pack because it didnt seem like there was any other way to get them and I love ewoks. i only really work on them to make them better, which is making it difficult for me to do the darkside stuff or the other events that require specific toons. I just wish i found it sooner so i could have gotten chirpa from the daily logins.

I played for a long time but got to caught up in the frenzy over getting the emperor when he first got released and was a must have for top 10 spots. Spent way too much money to get him even though I ended up in the top 3 in pvp on my shard, didn't trust myself with it after that because I'm just too competitive.

Been kind of on the fence with playing this one, but I have heard good things about it. Might go ahead and give it a shot here at some point. For SW mobile games I usually play SW Commander. I don't mind that actually. Just wish that on the defense wins your countermeasures would automatically reset or your shield activates for however long.

i have been aggravated with this game lately. i found that it lowers the drop rate as you get close to an upgrade to try to get you to spend cash by buying more energy. there is no balance in the game between the different characters. i still play it but i will never give them a penny

i started to play again about a week ago. i realized that i can't play the pvp other than the daily requirements for the daily reward. i very much enjoy the galactic war. i have 3 teams i work with, my ewoks, jawas and darkside. i can usually get through with two of them, but on occasions, i need more.


i even play it on my pc with a separate account. this way i can play when ever i want. if i run out of energy, i just use the other account.


my cat even enjoys playing

I just unlocked ships today. Which should i blow my money on? enhancing the big ship (like Elecutrix with Tarkin) or the smaller ships (like the x-wings and tie fighters)? which should be stronger?

i havent figured out ships yet. i think it is more important to gear up the pilots over the ship itself. however, the pilots i have are all terrible, so my ships are terrible.

the big ships are needed to do the main quests, so i think they are more important

There does seem to be a benefit of increasing the CP of the pilots. I am finally making progress, but it feels much slower than on the human combats.

I've been obsessed with this game recently. This is my current roster of high level heroes. I'm working on getting the First Order all up to 7* now that I have Phoenix Squad maxed (minus Sabine because I seem to use Chopper more). Next I'll work on Empire since I'll be able to 7* Thrawn and Emperor Palpatine by the next time those events come around. I'm also kind of concentrating on some Sith heroes when I have extra resources to spend. I unlocked Maul and Sidious this week.

For ships I only really concentrated on Ghost, Kylo Ren TIE Silencer, Phantom II and First Order TIE Fighter because my pilots for those ships are high level. Tarkin is the flagship I use. The ship stuff kind of sucks in my opinion.

I like this game - haven't spent a dime yet.

Since March of this year. March 25th to be exact cause I remember now that I actually did some buy something in game when I first started (and I just checked my PayPal history). I wanted to have Han Solo (Hoth) so I bought whatever the pack was that had that character. I didn't realize at the time that it only got you a few shards or whatever. I ended up with like 5 shards and some ability thingies. Since that time I haven't bought anything because it's obviously a rip off.
lately??? How long have you been grinding?

If I were you (and this is just my opinion) I'd focus on a squad with really good synergy and max them out. It makes lot of stuff easier. That way you can jump into some of the raids and get better gear.

For me I focused squarely on Phoenix Squad to start. Hera's leader ability makes it a very formidable squad with great synergy. You can basically auto through the Galactic War stuff and you need Rebels for Emperor Palpatine shards. Also the only way to obtain Thrawn is with a max Phoenix Squad.

If you grind for Hera and Ezra in the Cantina nodes you are basically buying Chopper at the same time. You get those Cantina credits to spend in the store. Kannan and Zeb are easily obtained as well. Zeb you buy from the Galactic War credits and Kannan from the Squad store (the PvP credits). If you just do the dailies for those you should start accumulating enough credits to start buying them in a single day.

As soon as I had Hera maxed I started on my First Order squad. Grinding for Unmasked Kylo on the Cantina node gets you his shards, his ship shards AND Cantina credits for the First Order Officer. Regular Kylo can be obtained the same way and again you are basically buying the Officer as you grind. Both the Stormtrooper and TIE Pilot come from hard mode nodes (one light and one dark for each) so they can be obtained somewhat easily. Phasma can be bought with Galactic War nodes As soon as I maxed Zeb I started on Phasma which in hindsight was a mistake - Phasma kind of sucks and is not needed for a good FO squad.

My Empire team is forming on accident basically. Having high level Rebels allowed me to get Thrawn and Palpatine and the game basically gives you Vader and Tarkin.

The leader abilities and common squad members all compliment each other. So for example here is Hera's leader ability:



The text kind of got cut off but basically having Hera in the leader spot causes all the rest of the Phoenix Squad member to be able to share each others abilities. Hera's leader ability on any other squad is worthless and having Hera as just a member of another squad is kinda worthless cause she isn't that strong of character WITHOUT the rest of Phoenix Squad. Having the whole full squad creates a synergy. Chopper also has some abilities that benefit other Phoenix Squad members. While Ezra and Kanan could also serve as good characters in a Jedi centric squad (with a leader like Bastila who buffs Jedi) they are best served as part of Phoenix Squad.

Now here is Unmasked Kylo Ren leader ability:


Notice how it specifically calls out First Order characters as the ones that benefit from his leader ability. So having other First Order characters (some of which also have specific abilities that have positive effects on First Order characters only) along with Kylo as leader creates a synergy.

A character like Emperor Palpatine has a leader ability that benefits both Sith AND Empire characters so he is versatile and can be used effectively in a few different squad configurations (a Sith squad with Vader, Maul, Dooku etc OR an Empire squad with Vader, Stormtrooper, Tarkin etc).

By looking at the screenshot you posted above you can go down a few paths to put together a strong squad that will give you opportunity to get some higher level characters and have multiple viable squads for all the game modes. You already have Hera (who is not really easy to obtain AND has the Phoenix Squad leader ability) so you're off to a good start if you want to build out the that team. Phoenix is absolutely necessary if you want to get Thrawn (who is one of the best characters in the game) they are also great for Emperor Palpatine because you need either Rebels or Jedi characters to win him.

You can also get an Empire squad going. Vader, Tarkin, maybe Royal Guard. The Magmatrooper is easy to get. You'll have a decent synergy team that won't be super viable as you get higher in level but it could be a good starter team. Eventually if you want a top Empire team you'll need Thrawn, Palpatine etc which means Phoenix is necessary.

Just some suggestions. - really I think it's all about having a team of characters you like. It's only a game after all.

Edit: apologies for spelling and grammar errors. I'm on my mobile.

This is a very fun game; I play it daily. Obtained Aurra Sing this morning. Glad to see her come to the game (glad to see any/all new characters, really) but I wish they would release Zuckuss and 4-LOM to round out the last of the Sinister Six; plus they could then bring the Mist Hunter to ships as well.

I too wish for the remaining bounty hunters and their ships.
Zuckuss, 4-LOM, Jango Fett, "Mist Hunter", "IG-2000" and Jangos "Slave 1"

The Game just updated: NEW and best thing: Mod Energy so you won't have to use Cantina Energy for Mod Battles. I can't wait to use it starting tomorrow!

i am having a hard time staying motivated to play this game. i hate how it is so gated to you pay money to play more or get better gear. my ewoks are at lvl 80 and as geared as i can get them to this point, and need raids to get more gear. however, when i hit the raid i do like 12k in damage before being wiped out. its to the point i just auto it because i know i dont make any difference. having to login multiple times per day to get my power is also getting old fast. many days i just skip it completely.

i think might need to take a break again. it hasnt been fun for a while, it just hits my OCD spot where i need to do it.

Thus far the whole mod rework has been just decent in my opinion. It's a major credit sink.

They added Jedi Knight Revan this past week. To unlock him you need the rest of the Old Republic characters at 7 stars and with high gear. I'm going to have to try for him the next time the event rolls around as I only have Bastila, Mission, Z, and T3 at 4 stars and Jolee at 3.

These have been my go to squads. I need to 7 star Vader, Dooku and Maul (will probably be in the next few days). The Empire/Sith team melts Jedi. I'm focusing on the Old Republic crew next.

Unlocked Revan during the last event and it's almost not fair how good he is.

Darth Revan coming this week. Looks like he is going to rule the PvP game for a long time. Right now Arena is totally run over by Jedi Revan/Jedi teams but with Darth Revan and the nasty abilities they are giving him it's going to be all Darth Revan/Sith Empire. I'm not going to have the resources to obtain him this go round unfortunately. I tend to enjoy the PvE part of the game more anyway and it doesn't look like Darth Revan will be essential there right away.

I'm currently having lots of fun with Jedi Revan, Bastila, Jolee, Grand Master Yoda and Kanan Jarrus as my main PvP and PvE/raid team.

I've focused more on getting my Rebel team (Luke Farmboy, Han Stormtrooper, Ben Kenobi, Leia, R2) built so I can obtain Commander Luke Skywalker the next time that event comes around instead of the Old Republic ones needed for Darth Revan.

Got Darth Revan this week but I have a long way to go before it's ready for any real PvP or PvE

The Jedi Knight Revan squad that I've been running with Thrawn has been very successful for PvP (broke into the top 100) and Raids when I can clear the Hard Rancor Raid solo without a death.

Now I'm trying to build up a Resistance squad for the next time Jedi Training Rey is available and also gearing up my Luke Skywalker and Sith teams. Eventually Darth Revan will lead a team with Dark Side Bastila, HK-47 and some of the Sith Troopers (until the next Malak event)
