    Just like the datamine said

    Looks like they are using prize boxes now so that they don’t have to alternate between handpicked rewards

    I hope junk gear isn’t in it in Auditorium and Khyber levels and the rewards are a substantial upgrade

    I’m excited for it

    Can we stop this nonsense right now? GA is the worst thing to be added since pvp tournaments. It's fine if you want give people something to compete in but remove all rewards and just grant titles and stupid crap like that. That way people that hate your stupid mini TW aren't forced to play it.

    I love GA, but can you just give definitive dates when things will be released?

    Will rosters be locked for the entirety of the championship or will we get to benefit from upgrades made during the weeks it is running?

    How will matchmaking be handled. Will Kyber simply be those with the highest GP? Are players matched via GP no matter what league they are in?

    If a "season" is several weeks, are we going to see a traditional GA round as we do now with 8 players per round? Single elimination style as we have now or will we have divisions, mutiple matches per player per round to give us an even tougher challenge?

    Looks very interesting. Are you able to comment more on the "touger opponents." Will they still be within a reasonably close gp range or could you face significantly higher gp opponents?

    This looks really cool! With the different leagues, will losses in rounds/battles cause a reduction in league? Are league ranks reset after every championship?

    So pretty much Grand Arena Championships is a copy of another EA Game. The Commanders and Rivals game. Literally it’s almost Exactly the same,lol. The only reason I noticed is because I’ve been playing the game the past few days.

    So... the top Kyber league is obviously the $5k+ per year whale league who will get the gear they need for g13 as a reward, next would be the $1k+ whales, do you think FTP will be able to make it into the chromium league?

    How wrong can you be. This is by far the best part of SWGH. If you don't like it don't play it.

    I’m most interested in the GP bracket:reward ratio. The best part of GA in the past was the equal rewards for newer and older players. This equality allowed us another game mode outside of squad arena where we can be competitive and not fall further behind the long time players.

    GA is kinda boring and this doesn’t seem to address some of the core issues like terrible drop rates and I’m still waiting for a playground to test squads.
  • Options
    Is this going to completely replace the current GA format or we will have both running at the same time? Thanks!

    It’s great that you’re so vocal about your opinion. Unfortunately, I think you’re in the vast minority. GA is an awesome mode that allows(allowed?) newer players to expedite their growth, older players to enjoy individual competition, and community members to showcase their matches for all to see. I hope you can grow to love this mode as most do.

    Not as wrong as you, because it is definitely the worst.

    Looks and sounds like 2 players that should probably just save others the wambulance, and retire.
    You had a good run.
    If you don’t like the mode and it’s improvements, then step off the holotable.
    No one is begging y’all to take part in GA.
    If you don’t like it, don’t do it.
    Quit complaining.

    If the rewards aren’t better than the garbage ga rewards I’ll have a hard time caring
    Maybe End Game isn't for you

    This gives players who dominate at a medium-high GP a chance to battle tougher opponents. It's only fair that the tougher the opposition the higher the rewards.

    I'm all for this.

    Let's leave it out with calling out other people on the forum ~Rtas

    Yep pretty sure you do. The first notes mentioned that ranks 1-4 Get promoted

    Along with this what I want to see is a knockout system. Eventually there will be a final group of 8. Hopefully these battles will be live streamed or something

    Great... SWGOH slips further and further into the Yu-Gi-Oh-But-With-Star-Wars abyss..
    Or is it Pokemon-But-With-Star-Wars....

    I like GA, but I'm not sure about how matchmaking will work in this. In regular GA we're already supposed to face evenly matched opponents. In GA Championship, will we start off facing undermatched opponents and progress to overmatched opponents? If so, I don't see the point. Why would I want to face an undermatched or overmatched opponent? The fun of GA is trying to defeat evenly matched opponents. But I'll wait and see in case I'm missing something.

    1. When? Eta? (in coming weeks.... That is just so like Soon, and i hate Soon.. I wait soon every day.. Addict i know)
    2. New currency.... Means new shop filled with what?
    3. Again 24h setup and 24h battle or button "DONE GO TO NEXT PHASE" with 24h limit?
    4. Rewards difference? If is low no one will bother to get promotion to Kyber
