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: Force Arena – 4/12 Update Details

An update for Star Wars: Force Arena is ready. This one  features some balance adjustments to hopefully give more exciting experiences in the arena. Other improvements are included here, so check out the details below:   ■ Balance Adjustments A Balance Patch is here to make some changes for some cards in the game. All numbers listed in the Balance Patch are based on the cards at Level 1. Light Side Unit Balance Rey Rey’s Mind Trick is one of the most powerful skills in the game. It changes the tides of battle towards her side by converting Organic enemies into her allies. But sometimes, that gave a very negative experience to Dark Side users, as they had to watch their allies becoming their enemies helplessly. A decision to increase the Cooldown of her skill a bit has been applied. It’s still powerful, but it will need more discretion when using it….

The Future of Star Wars Games

You know how we love our Star Wars games here. It’s what the entire site is about! Well, let’s talk games for a bit here. I’ve been playing Star Wars games for as long as I can remember and every time a new one is in production or released, I’m excited to try it out. Admittedly, they’re not all for me, but that’s the beauty of the Star Wars universe and the popularity of it all – they just keep making more games. But… what if they stopped? Or what if the games they make aren’t the ones the fans really want? Or what if we get bored of the same old, same old they keep shoving at us? What then? This article from Hardcore Gamer discusses the topic of the future of Star Wars games and we think they have some really great points. So rather than say again…

Timeline of AT-AT Takedowns in Video Games (1982-2017)

Do you love AT-ATs? I’ve always been fascinated with them, since the first time I saw them as a young girl. Now, in the many years that have passed since the first Star Wars film, we’ve seen them come back in a variety of ways, including in a variety of video games. Here we have a really cool mashup of AT-AT takedowns in video games through the years. Not only is it a hilariously fun video to watch, it’s also a great compilation of the different times they have appeared in video games. This video showcases the changes in graphics from 1982-2017 by showing AT-AT takedown animations from various video games throughout video game history. Consoles include : Atari 2600, Atari ST, NES, SNES, Gameboy, Sega CD, N64, PC, PS2, PS4, Mobile Phone It’s actually really cool! It was a lot of fun to watch the different clips, spot the…

SWTOR: Tank Balance Changes in Game Update 5.9

Game update 5.9 will see quite a lot of changes to tanks in the next game update.  Here are more info: Let’s talk about the changes coming to Tanks in Game Update 5.9. There are two things that informed the changes you will find below. First, “skank tanks” are greatly overperforming in PvP. This is a player who is using a Tank Discipline but equipping DPS gear. Second, when comparing all tanks (regardless of gear) against the DPS targets we outlined last year, tanks are doing more damage than intended. The summary of what we are changing in 5.9 is that tanks across the board will be doing less damage. To ensure that this doesn’t have a negative impact on their ability to tank/hold threat, we are greatly increasing their overall threat generation. This will mean that although they will commit less damage to an encounter, holding threat will not…

SWTOR Marauder / Sentinel Changes in 5.9

Marauders /Sentinels are the only Classes in 5.9 that are receiving slightly different changes than the other Classes this patch so I wanted to call them out separately. Here are the changes:   Maurader The Ruthless Aggressor utility has been changed so that activating Obfuscate temporarily yields a 75% increase in damage reduction for Force and tech attacks instead of a 75% chance to resist all Force and tech attacks. Fury Reduced the damage done by Bloody Slashes by 18.5% Sentinel The Zealous Judgment utility has been changed so that activating Pacify temporarily yields a 75% increase in damage reduction for Force and tech attacks instead of a 75% chance to resist all Force and tech attacks. Concentration Reduced the damage done by Burning Slices by 18.5% We are making two changes. First, following last year’s balance pass, these Classes are still slightly overperforming. The change to Bloody Slashes /…

SWTOR Utility Changes in Game Update 5.9

Following the damage adjustments we made last year, we have been monitoring each Class’s performance to see where additional changes would be needed. Right now, we are quite close (but not perfect) on the overall damage output of each Class. One thing that has come to forefront after these changes is the lack of survivability for some of our Disciplines. Imperial Agent Sniper Virulence In addition to its other effects, Toxic Regulators now increases your damage reduction by 15% for 6 seconds after your Shield Probe collapses or expires Operative Lethality In addition to its other effects, Toxic Regulators now increases your damage reduction by 15% for 6 seconds after your Shield Probe collapses or expires Smuggler Gunslinger Dirty Fighting In addition to its other effects, Concussion now increases your damage reduction by 15% for 6 seconds after your Defense Screen collapses or expires Scoundrel Ruffian In addition to its…

Darth Malak: A Star Wars Story

“You made a mistake coming here, Revan. The Star Forge fuels my command of the dark side. You are no match for me here. And this time you will not escape!“―Darth Malak, to Revan Are you looking to learn more about Darth Malak? Learning the origin stories is a lot of fun for fans and we really love the Star Wars Story series of videos from The Scoundrel’s Cantina for this very reason.

But Mandalorians attacked his homeland and he escaped to the Galactic Republic. He was first trained by the Jedi Order but his story would take a turn to the Dark Side.
