Sorry.

Nah, no worries. I understood what you meant :) I was just clarifying that it isn't tied to a Client update, but it's turning out to be a bigger project than initially anticipated.

Raid reset is still being worked on. There are larger implications with this.

I think that we'll be discussing it on the official forums soon. ;)

Thanks for posting this. I'm forwarding this to a few people internally. I'm also going to check the drop rates and make sure they're what they're supposed to be.

Unfortunately, I have no ETA on this.

As soon as I know more, I'll try and update everyone.

OOOOH!!! I bet I know what's happening!!

I wonder if it's not counting your original Clone Trooper in the achievement system (because you get it via the Tutorial).

Hmmm... I'm gonna pass this along.

Thanks!

It's not that we're ducking things, it's been crazy, crazy busy here. I'm working 12+ hour days, so while I try and squeeze in forum time, most days rip by before I even know what's what.

We're still a relatively small studio, and we are hiring, so bear with us!

You're welcome!

Wait... what are we talking about?

It means that scaling rewards is not an overnight thing. It means we know about it and it's in our backlog of things to address. It means that it will be addressed, but I don't have a time frame to give to you. :)

So.... Soon™

We are aware that rewards have not scaled. We are looking in to this.

P.S. We never listen. ᕕ( ՞ ᗜ ՞ )ᕗ

OH! Okay!

So the answer to your question is: Maybe.

Why "maybe"? Because it depends on if the server has been tracking it since you started your account, or if it's a new "hook" we put in to create a new achievement.

If it's an existing hook, then yeah, you should get granted rewards automatically.

If not, then no, because there's no way to actually know what you did or did not do.

So upping the T7 difficulty is unlikely to happen, mostly because people are already engaged with it and it would be a bit of a mess to just dial it up. I think going forward, future Raids will account for this.

Rewarding and the reward structure are constantly being evaluated. We've been discussing things, but there's an issue with people cheesing the system to get loot with the bare minimum amount of investment. Discussion continues on this front.

Raid resets haven't been discussed yet, but I will bring it.

We are a live game. Like any live game, things change. We don't retroactively grant things just because the game continues to grow and change. We generally only issue rewards when there's a bug, a glaring error, or technical issues.

We are constantly trying to update the AI. Thanks for these.

(Not you OP) Also, please stop tagging me in posts. I don't visit every day and it fills my notifications. Additionally, when I do want to answer a questions, and people tag me like I'm supposed to answer, I have a tendency to avoid the post.

Nope, Zek was the PvP. My good friend was in the top Guild on Zek. They used to love PvP raiding.

Wasn't my thing.

  1. Whats up guys we already release this new way of getting free credits and cyrstals click here

  2. Good evening!

    I downloaded Galaxy of Heroes game 2 months ago from Google Play for Android. I enjoy this game that is amazing battle, but I noticed it was hard to advance because it is long way to accomplish. Believe me that I became addicted on this game that I play everyday, in the morning, then afternoon and evening before to lie down …. Still hard to accomplish.

    Then I purchased for 28,000 crystals at $19.99 that I thought it could help me to advance my game, adding more characters, gears, abilities, stars and experience …

    Unfortunately it didn’t work, I added another 2,800 crystals then again … in total 3 times ($19.99 x 3= $59.97) $60 for just android game, not even PC game which is bigger game than mobile application.

    Playing everyday for straight 2 months, I see very hard because all crystals depleted faster after purchasing packages: 2X Aurodium Data Pack, 3X Chromium Mega-Pack, 2X Training Droid Mega-Pack and 2X Credit Mega-Pack.

    Therefore I noticed that I level up faster than upgrading my abilities, gears and stars. My current level is 64. By now I have only 27 characters with only 1 6-Stars, only 1 5-Stars, 4 4-Stars, 8 3-Stars, 7 2-Stars and 6 1-Star that is not enough after spending $60 dollars. I focused only 8 characters more power than others characters Ex: Luminara Unduli, Jedi Consular, Geonosian Soldier, IG-86 Sentinel Droid, Royal Guard, Qui-Gon Jinn, Clone Wars Chewbacca and Jawa, which are unlocked in my game.

    For Squad Arena, I get very hard because I only rank between 450-650 for one month because I don’t have enough power. Why can’t I reach lower than 400 rank that I need to collect more crystals and arena tokens.

    For Galactic War, it is more annoying because I can’t complete all battles. I only won once last 3 weeks ago! Why can’t I repeat completing Galactic War? I need more Galactic War tokens and ability materials.

    For Light Side, I stay longer in Stage 6 because it is hard to accomplish.

    For Dark Side, I finally reached to Stage 6, but I stay longer there because lack of advanced gears and abilities.

    However, I really don’t understand that I noticed other players, for example: Jamie at rank 62 has 34 characters with 2 7-Stars, 4 6-Stars, 5 5-Stars and others between 5 and 6 levels gears that looks more power than mine.

    Other player that I found out from YouTube.com that I surprised his level 70 with 75 characters almost all 7-Stars, 8 level gears and abilities…. I noticed that this player has 46,522 crystals …wow that look like he purchased them for $2,500 I can’t afford!

    … it hurt me by being not enough power to play, will you please help me?

    Be force with you,

    My ID is 911-524-524 – Nickname is Maximusun – Goople is maximusun@gmail.com – My player ID is 1BaruwnnTMiDwE7pl9yySw

  3. Dearest of dear hardworking Devs,

    I realise this game is pay to win, and oh dear have I paid. But loosen up a bit, eh? You’ve got loyal fans. Show them some love. Here’s how:

    1. Allow shard and gear trading between players, at least within the same guild. I have some 70.000 (!) useless shard credits, and I would love to use them to strengthen my fellow raiders. This would significantly boost the social elements of the game beyond the weak chat function currently in place.

    2. Vader. You have made him impossible to max out. All my shard and war credits bring me no closer. Kindly make it possible to use shard, arena and war credits for ANY character, ideally also gear and ability mats. But set a high ‘exchange rate’ if you must.

    3. UI. Please please please implement filters in all character overviews, incl. when putting together a team for a battle. It’s quite frankly ridiculous that it isn’t possible to filter by stats, synergies, group etc.

    4. Introduce some tools for more intelligent battles, e.g. odds of successful attack when choosing a target. It would also be great to allow a user to skip the turn of a character, e.g. when attacking a unit with certain retaliation ability would mean losing the unit.

    Thank you kindly. As you were.

    Player name: Dark Helmet, ID DKhvU8IASDGqdqy8Pmcinw

  4. Thanks, for this page and the whole website.

    The feed is quite an interesting read, when it features longer texts, like currently about Grievous and the shard shop. The offical forums just don’t seem to have a talkative (semi-) official spokesperson at this time.

  5. Still finding galactic war is giving me incorrect rewards!! Also, is there a confirmed date for yoda release?

  6. good info, thank you for your hardwork
