  1. Hello Holotable Heroes,

    Yesterday we mentioned that June’s event calendar looks a little different than usual. This is due to an upcoming Title Update that we do not want to launch in the middle of Grand Arena Championships or Territory Wars. We will have more to say on the Title Update in the future but we wanted to share info on what’s actually changing with the schedule and how we are adjusting rewards to match our usual schedule.

    Grand Arena Championships will have an extra week between events during this month and there will be a 7 day calendar for the extra week between Grand Arena Championships that will provide Crystals and Championship Tokens.

    Login Calendar Day/Reward
    1. Crystals x375
    2. Championship Token x500
    3. Crystals x375
    4. Championship Token x500
    5. Crystals x375
    6. Championship Token x500
    7. Crystals x375

    Going forward in June and beyond, Grand Arena Championships will be 3 weeks on, 1 week off instead of 4 weeks on and 1 week off. Grand Arena Championships rewards will also be adjusted to compensate for this different schedule since it will be a 4 week cycle instead of a 5 week cycle. (IE 28 days/4x 7 day cycle vs 35 day/5x 7 day cycle ). To give an example, here are the average Crystals earned per day in Grand Arena Championships for comparison.

    There is a very minor increase in the average amount of Crystals earned each day, but most importantly, players will not be earning less Crystals on average. The shorter overall schedule also means the week off will occur more frequently but End of Event rewards will also occur more frequently. To that end, we will be making some changes to balance out the rewards and to make the table above possible.
    • Increased the crystal rewards for a loss in Carbonite/Bronzium/Chromium
    • Increased the crystal rewards for winning in Carbonite
    • Increased the per-Tournament (3-round event) payout of Championship Tokens and Mod slicing materials
    • Decreased Championship Tokens in the end-of-season prizes - This means the impact to Championship Tokens rewards comes out to effectively neutral with the above changes, but with more % paid out throughout the season and less of a 1 big lump sum at the end

    Additionally, we have some extra events running during the Grand Arena off week of 06/06 to 06/12. These are a one time thing to cover the additional time gap between Grand Arena Championships for this month. There will be extra Assault Battles and Galactic Challenges during this time and there will be 4 Territory Wars in a row instead of 2.

    Last but not least, Conquest will no longer start on the first Monday of every month. Instead, it will be tied into the 28 day/4 week cycle.

    See you on the Holotables!
  2. Hello Holotable Heroes,

    Here is a list of some of the upcoming events for June 2022.
    DISCLAIMER: ALL DATES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE.

    Daily Login Character for June: Baze Malbus

    You will probably notice that this month's schedule has been adjusted to accounted for an upcoming Title Update. We will be changing some event rewards (such as Grand Arena Championships) and running several extra events (Assault Battles, Galactic Challenges and a special login calendar) to account for different schedule. We will have more details to share soon!

    Capital Games is thrilled to introduce a brand-new character to the Galaxy of Heroes Cantina and the Star Wars universe, 50R-T (pronounced “Sortie”)! A tactical droid with murky origins somewhere deep within the Old Republic, she was recovered for scrap on a battlefield but has been repurposed into a croupier droid. Her new owners have taken to adapting her tactical acumen to best suit a gaming environment.

    The Basics:
    • Droid Leader who synergizes well with other non-Separatist droids
    • 50R-T brings the first Conquest Omicron to SWGoH - showcasing her ability to overcome difficult situations
    • Introduces three new buffs to the game: Spare Parts, VIP, and Instant Defeat Immunity
    • This Marquee character can be earned in the “Playing the Odds” event that opens this Thursday!
    Unique Attributes:
    • New Buff: Spare Parts - +30% Critical Chance and +30% Offense; if this character is defeated, they are revived with at full Health, gain Foresight and Protection Up, and dispel this buff from all allies; this revive can't be prevented
    • New Buff: Instant Defeat Immunity - Can’t be instantly defeated, this buff can’t be copied, dispelled or prevented
    • 50R-T’s revives can’t be prevented, but will only occur once for each revive. This type of revive is very rare but powerful.
    • VIP - 50R-T chooses her weakest other ally as her VIP at the start of battle, providing Stealth, Offense Up, and some healing throughout the encounter. If all of her allies are Droids, she and her VIP are also immune to Turn Meter reduction.

    Inspiration:
    • We’ve been spending time with our friends at Star Wars™: The Old Republic! As we were working with them on bringing Darth Malgus into our game, we also started on the idea of creating a new droid after seeing one of their concepts for an upcoming character. The look of 50R-T was inspired by some of the humanoid chassis droids in the Old Republic, with a firm nod to the Gemini class.
    • We wanted a droid that would be a lifter to non-Separtist droids, giving characters like T3-M4, IG-88, and R2-D2 a new, powerful squad to be a part of.
    • We leaned into her tactical background as a rationale as to why she was so good at being a croupier droid. She is one part hostess, one part dealer, one part bodyguard, and the rest of the parts are security focused.
    • Being a croupier droid, it makes sense that she has access to the holographic cards used in Sabacc, and her adaptability allows her to turn those cards into potent weapons.
    Strategy Tips:
    • Mods: Critical Chance and Health work well on 50R-T, though Critical Damage can really power up the damage output from Sabacc Shuffle
    • Use 50R-T with non-Separatist droids to get the most out of her kit; she works well with both Light and Dark side droids
    • Starting out with Sabacc Shuffle provides an early boost to non-Separatist droid’s Offense
    • Focus enemies that have Target Lock to provide a boost to 50R-T’s next ally to take a turn

    FAQ:

    Why introduce a brand new character?
    We’ve had the core idea behind 50R-T for quite some time and have been looking for a way to introduce her to Galaxy of Heroes and Star Wars as a whole. Many droids are not part of a dedicated team and have been looking for a leader to make them greater than the sum of their parts, and 50R-T fit that bill perfectly.

    Why a Conquest Omicron?
    We have been looking for a character to put a Conquest Omicron on since we launched the feature, but we wanted the right character and we wanted an Omicron that did something specific to help you earn better crates.

    What does her Omicron do?
    Similar to a Bounty Hunter’s contract, when 50R-T or one of her allies defeats the first enemy to take a turn, all of her allies are revived and can’t be damaged or defeated for 2 turns, making a three star victory all but guaranteed.

    How do I get 50R-T?
    You can unlock 50R-T in her new marquee event, “Playing the Odds”!
    What droids does she synergize with the best?
    50R-T synergizes well with non-Separatist droids like T3-M4, R2-D2, Threepio & Chewie, or IG-88.
  4. We wanted to announce that we will be at Star Wars Celebration this year at our own booth, talking about the past, present and future of our game. We’ll also have some scheduled events with our friends from Star Wars: The Old Republic! If you’re slated to go, we look forward to seeing you. There will also be some really awesome photo op areas, and maybe a special piece of limited swag.
  5. We are aware of an issue some players are having with the end of season GAC rewards. We are currently investigating your reports.

    In an upcoming release we will be providing the missing rewards to those people who were affected.

    Thank you for your reporting of the issue and your patience.
