This game was fun for a little while as they practically gave away some of their EP 7 Characters & somewhat unpopular OT Characters, but when it comes time to unlock the Better or Legendary Characters, you have have no choice but to Pay a lot of Money in their store to quickly build up the other characters in order to unlock the Legendary Characters and it used to be somewhat easy to unlock their “Marque Characters” until Disney & EA envisioned their “Road Ahead” now they’ve made it almost impossible as a FTP to unlock what used to be an easier unlock character & again they are now redirecting players to their store to purchase shards that are now double the price than before and you may or may not be able to get the shards you need to unlock that character so you end up dumping a lot of money into their store and that concept by the developers is Absolutely Horrible. Plus theres a lot of Stupid Holes in the game. For example they allowed us to play to unlock Anakins Star Fighter but they did not offer to allow us to unlock Anakin Skywalker himself in order to unlock his fighter. Same thing with OT Millennium Falcon. They allowed us to play to unlock the Falcon but did not include Han or Chewie to unlock so we could not unlock the OT Falcon - Unless you go to the store and purchase their shards. Not everyone has been playing the game since the launch, so its not fair to the New Players that they do not have a playing chance of unlocking special characters so EA should bring those events back around from time to time & allow New Players the opportunity to unlock special characters like Count Dooku or Anakin Skywalker or Captain Han Solo. Sorry but this game is No Longer any fun. They Totally took a what was once a fantastic creation by George Lucas & Trashed it into a Cash Grab Money Pit. *And keep in mind folks: There’s lots of “Good Mobile Games” out there because a Good Game Developer will try to make sure EVERYONE comes out a Winner somehow & not just focus the paying players who want to RUSH to be at the Top of the Leader Boards & PAY Out The Nose in the store. This Developer & Disney just wants to rip people off at the door & they are using the Star Wars creation as a Financial Door Mat & Laughing All They Way to the Bank... Well, here’s my Concept Looking Ahead for SWGOH -> Game Deleted
As has become more and more typical. This game is not winnable or even fun if you don’t spend money. The weekly challenges are meant to drive gem purchases into the hundreds of dollars. If you have the willingness to grind out a character over the months and months needed, you will be undermined to find EA offering a 49.99 or 69.99 bundle for the toon you just put together, and for another mere $99.99 you can buy the gear needed to get them up to nearly epic. Seriously, just not fun after a years worth of grinding and spending money needlessly.
It would be a good idea to add a Jedi version of Finn and it would also be nice to have general grevious
Fun game. It just takes way too time to power up the characters. Seriously, 20 battles and I get one character shard? Not very rewarding:(
There are so many parts to the game that it keeps you interested and entertained. There is certainly strategy involved, especially resource allocation. It tempting to pay for crystals, but there are ways to earn resources through battles and challenges. Tip: Try different Guilds until you find the one that suites you. I went through three different ones until I joined the current one I’m in. You really do need to be an active member of a guild in order to acquire more resources to enhance your character’s. And understanding MODS and using them is a must! The new built in MOD suggestion code is NOT to be trusted lol the time.
Because EA made it and it’s all about greedy pricing and not so much fun. What is Disney thinking?
This game is really fun but the game is soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo restricting.energy sim tickets but good game also add old game characters such as Galen Maric or star killer and others from force unleashed I wold like to see starkillers hero’s journey.still my favorite game but I want my favorite characters.and about pay to play just be patient your not going to get to level 100 in a day that’s the point! You have to be patient and slowly climb the leader boards.shut up about pay to play it’s strategy and experimentation.
I have been playing this game consistently for just over a year and honestly this is my favorite mobile app I have ever played. Yes, with every game there are some aspects that require pay to win, but to be honest with the amount of time that I have put in, the money is worth it. To anyone who is a big Star Wars fan, even if you play it very casual, it has its shining and very fun moments. Progressing characters can be tough sometimes, but if you have some free time each day to put in a few minutes to play it is works out! I recommend this to anyone!
Ok, I have been playing for a while. I quit for my deployment and picked up again. It was a grind but I’m back in the top 100. I haven’t spent a dime on this game!!! Everyone that says you need to pay is wrong, wrong, Wrong! You need to strategize your grinding. Build the right kind of teams and use those teams to score the hard to get characters. If you don’t turn this game on 2-3 times a day you’ll obviously move slower than you’d want. But I rarely spend more than 15 min on it at a time. Currency is easy to acquire. Gems are given out with every daily quest and for other missions. My advice to new players is that you should research the team you want to work on and grind it hard. Then everything comes pretty easily after that. My sith team isn’t meta but it’s enough to get all the new characters. Good luck!
Fun and addictive! Awesome way to bring all the Star Wars trilogies and tv shows together.
