My first post in this forum, I thought I would share a few things I've learnt in my struggles with the Galactic War. The last week or so I've been unable to complete GW but the last 2 days have been fairly simple.
Unfortunately this method will take more time than usual as it requires retreating from the tougher fights.
The first thing to understand is fights in GW are NOT random. Every battle follows a set script that can be manipulated to your advantage.
I start a battle, I attack first with Darth Sidious and use his single target attack on an enemy Luminara. I hit her for 2700 damage. The enemy Darth Sidious is next up and uses his single target attack hitting my Luminara, he crits for 3800 damage. I now retreat and start the battle over. In this instance my Sid will ALWAYS go first, if I attack his Luminara it will ALWAYS hit for 2700 damage and his Sid will ALWAYS retaliate by hitting my Luminara for 3800 damage. No matter how many times I retreat and start over, this will happen every time so long as I hit the enemy Luminara first. This is what I mean by fights following a script.
This script applies for the entire fight, so if you do the entire fight, then retreat before the final blow, and do everything the same again the whole fight will remain the same. All attacks and all damage numbers will remain the same so long as you dont change the order of your attacks.
Once you understand this you can begin to manipulate the fights to your advantage.
So, say I retreat and start over again, this time I go first and attack his Sid instead of Lumi, the script changes and his retaliation may well be an AOE.
A common occurrence in my experience is when I fight a team that has Dooku in it, he will go first and attack one of my Jedi, this often leaves 2 of my characters stunned for the first round of attacks which is not an Ideal start. There is a simple way to alter this when it happens. Retreat out, then when you get to your squad selection switch out the Jedi that was attacked with a non Jedi character, so swap Luminara with Darth Sidious. No need to alter your squad, just their position in the roster. When you start the battle again Dooku will attack the same location, now hitting Sid instead of Luminara and you will most likely take less damage and avoid the stun. This is another way the script can be manipulated.
Switching out characters with someone off your bench will also alter the script, giving even more opportunities to gain the advantage.
The last way to alter the script to your advantage is to switch up who you attack, yesterday I came up against a team with Rey in it. I attacked her first and she retaliated by killing Qui-Gon Jin in one hit, 8k damage (My QGJ is only 4* with around 7k HP). I retreated and attacked Darth Sidious first instead, Then Rey attacked someone else for around 4k damage allowing me to kill her before her second attack.
If you have the time and patience to retreat out and change how you approach the fight you will be able to find a way to win pretty much every time without losing anyone. Every time something goes wrong start again and try a different approach.
Here is the team I use, currently lvl 65 all with gear lvl 8:
6* Phasma (Leader)
7* Darth Sidious
6* Jedi Consular
7* Luminara Unduli
I only have 5* Daka, 5* Talia and 4* Vader as back up but I get through every fight with everyone alive so dont really need them.
