Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes New Raid, Tank Takedown, Launches 10/21/16! Game and Character Updates Released! #SWGOH


  • The Galactic Gear pack for Levels 80-85 has updated Pack art
  • Mystery Box– As a reward for completing daily activities at level cap, we’ve introduced a new Mystery Box at Level 85! Mystery boxes drop a variety of items including the possibility of Raid Gear.
  • The Tank takedown raid is tomorrow! Per @EA_Jesse‘s dev update on 10/6, Guilds will have both types of the new currency MAXED when the new Raid goes live. Guilds will definitely want to spend as much of their currency as they can instead of holding onto it
    • Multiple Simultaneous Raids: Guilds will now be able to have a Rancor Raid and The Tank Takedown Raid occurring simultaneously. Characters used in one Raid will not affect the characters that can be used in the other.
    • Unique Summoning Currencies per Raid: Even with multiple simultaneous Raids, Guilds still had to make the hard choice of how to spend their raid summoning currency as some players may only want to do the Tank Takedown and others would want to fight the Rancor. To provide the best experience for everyone, guilds will now earn separate summoning currencies for each raid through their daily energy spend. We will be removing the Guild Bank Coins and creating two new currencies “The Pit Tickets” that are used to summon the Rancor, and “Tank Takedown Tickets” which are used to summon the AAT. Both currencies will be earned at the same rate that Guild Bank Coins are currently earned (maximum of 600 per member per day). As we are removing Guild Bank Coins we will be setting both currencies to the max (150,000) to allow Guilds to immediately start playing both raids
  • Guild Switching Prevention: Some guilds have been using guild switching (or hopping) to participate in far more raids than should be possible if its members all stayed part of one guild. With our previous update we attempted to stop this unintended behavior by making players that switched guilds ineligible for raid rewards for a 48 hour period. Unfortunately this change was not succeeding in a manner we were satisfied with. With our recent update, we are removing the 48 hour ineligibility for Raid rewards when switching guilds and introducing a new change. The maximum Guild Bank Coins that a guild can earn per day is 30k (210k in a week). We will be tracking individual player participation in each Raid, retaining the summon cost for each Raid participated in, and stop providing raid rewards to the player after he/she has participated in raids that exceed the limit of 210k per week to summon. This will only affect players that are participating in the guild switching.
