Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes: C-3PO, Finn, and Phase 3 of the Sith Raid

There is currently a bug in phase 3 of the Sith Raid with Finn and C-3PO. The developers are gonna fix it next year when they figure out whether Finn lead or Traya tenacity is the thing to change:It’s come to our attention that there is an unintended strategy/interaction involving Finn(Leader – Zeta), C-3PO, Han Solo, Chewbacca, and BB-8 that allows players to auto Phase 3 of the Sith Triumvirate (Heroic). As we’ve indicated in previous updates, “when we discover an infinite loop that allows players to trivialize end game content, we try to act as swiftly as possible.” Learning from the issues with our Critolyte fix, we’re going to wait until the new year before we address this issue. We want to make sure we have the time to work through all ramifications of this change before we put it into the game. C-3PO was an interesting character to test…

Capital Games usually post kit reveals before now, but given the importance of this character, they wanted to make sure he was done right – rather than committing too early and then changing his kit. They apologize for the delay – as they know we’re all excited about it – but they wanted ensure our Jedi Knight Revan lives up to that excitement. The team has been working hard over the last few days (and months, really) on Jedi Knight Revan and are excited to share his Kit Reveal over in the Arena and Character Strategy Section.

Concept Art for Revan: The Legend, the Hero, the Cash-grabber, the Whale-friend.

Last Friday the Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes developers revealed that Jedi Knight Revan will be joining the Holotable. Here is a behind the scenes look a few SWGOH developers share the process of how we created Jedi Knight Revan – a character you may have played embodied in Star Wars™: Knights of the Old Republic (KotOR) DESIGN INTENT – CG_TopHat (Live Producer) Revan is one of the characters most often requested by players, so this was definitely an exciting but also serious challenge for the team.

How do…
