Capital has hired Mark Dickenson as new Senior Producer for Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes. Mark has been working in the gaming industry for many years and brings his expertise as a veteran producer to Capital Games. He’s not a new face around the studio as he was previously working on Capital Games’ next project. Here is an inteview: You recently became the Senior Producer for SWGOH, tell us a bit about yourself!MD – Well, that’s a big question. I’m a gaming industry veteran and earned my first video game paycheck back in 1987. That was actually working as an independent developer on a science fiction role playing game (Hard Nova) that was published by EA. Since then, I’ve worked for a number of video game companies including 3DO, LucasArts, & Telltale. It may sound like a cliche, but I am extremely passionate about video games – both developing &…

Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes: Event Calendar – August

Here is a list of some of the upcoming events in Star Wars: Galaxy if Heroes for August 2019. As allways you have to remember that all dates are subject to change.  Daily Login Character for August: CC-2224 “Cody” Please note that the team are working on updates for Grand Arena Championships and still determining when Championships or Exhibitions will return. There will be an official announcement in the next couple weeks regarding if we will take a short break from GAC or ready resume right away. I think Padme and Malak will both be sometime in August as well. They just didn’t want to put it on the calendar to give folks time to prepare. Basically, the event calendar is useless. They won’t be giving us information for anything worthwhile in advance. They will do the same thing with Malak that they did last time, 1 day or warning and…

In preparation for the introduction of the upcomming Grand Arena Championships in Star Wars: Galaxy of Heries, Capital is intensifying there efforts to root out and prevent cheating in competitive play.

Here are the news from Capital Games on the Grand Arena Championships. No one still have a clue what it is about, ot at least what the GP divisions is about, but Wall of text will crit you. (This is a continuation of information about Grand Arena Championship. If you haven’t read them already, please read the previous posts here and here, as some presumptions are made about understanding their context in this post.) Grand Arena Championships are a five-week series of Grand Arena events and Feats. Our goal is for the experience to feel like a normal Grand Arena event with a few bells and whistles, and then gradually ratchet up the competition and drive for the players who make it up to higher leagues in later events, until by the end of a Championship, it feels like the sharpest competition that the game has to offer. In this post, we’re going…

cn-swcw-galaxy-of-heroes-level-4-anakin-01-tc-level

The Community Manager over at Star Wars: Galaxy of hereoes posted a small update on Anakin’s performance in the game. Some players think he is way to powerfull. Here is the news: April 25, 2019 6:14PM edited April 25 “Your focus determines your reality.” Hey Holotable Heroes, I wanted to give a quick update on our announcement last Friday that we were looking into Anakin’s performance and whether or not he is too powerful, particularly where we want him to sit in the meta versus some specific teams like Darth Malak/Darth Revan. Our initial investigation has yielded the following results: Since we released Jedi Knight Anakin’s rework, only 8,000 players have used Jedi Knight Anakin under a Jedi Knight Revan lead to fight against Darth Revan & Darth Malak. That represents less than 1% of the total battles fought by the entire community during this window. Of these battles, JKA is…

Here is a list of some of the upcoming events for April.DISCLAIMER: ALL DATES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE. Daily Login Character for April: B2 Super Battledroid Tinfoil hat time: the return of JKR seems a bit quick. What if, perhaps, they’re using it to hide a legendary event for Malak? No CLS is also really odd. I would’ve bet the house we’d see that. Maybe it’ll overlap with the Daring Droid event like it did last time. Join the forum discussion on this post
