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,…

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…

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…

Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes: Server Update 1/11/18

Here are the Server Update notes for 01/11/2018. While server updates rarely have any player facing content (and thus don’t require notes), this is a rare exception. With a Quality of Life update on the horizon, we wanted to herald this server release which happens to include a highly requested fix for guild leads and officers! DAILY RAID TICKET CONTRIBUTION ALIGNMENT We’re working to fix the ticket counter offset issue! Previously, Guild Activities completed by players were not being counted as progress for Daily Guild Bank coins produced in the “Manage” area. This caused confusion for Guild leaders and prompted alternate means of tracking Guild Activity. Today we rolled out an interim fix that will allow players to update their ticket counter by doing the following: Complete a daily Guild Activity Navigate to the Guild Activities screen Then navigate to the Guild Management screen (you may need to wait up…
