Greetings Heroes!

Do you have a tip or trick for Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes that you have always wanted to share but didn’t have a place to post it? Well now there is a dedicated post for it!

This post is THE place to share tips & tricks that you may have. These can be for any game mode, it isn’t limited to any specific one. Also try to keep the tip or trick short, only 1-2 sentences are needed, I’m not looking for guides :smile:

Each week I will be going through the posts here to choose a top tip or trick of the week. This post will be shared in my weekly update and possibly on the official EA Star Wars Twitter page!

To keep things consistent, there is a format that I’ll need everyone to follow when posting a tip or trick, failure to follow this format could lead to your post being removed.

TEMPLATE TO FOLLOW FOR POSTING A TIP OR TRICK:

Title: [Insert tip or trick title here]
Game Mode: [Insert mode that tip or trick applies to, can be all]
Tip or Trick text: [Insert main text here]

Here is a sample tip:

Title: Dispelling buffs with Asajj Ventress
Game Mode: Arena
Tip: When facing a squad that includes Poggle the Lesser, wait until he uses Droid Assault before using Asajj Ventress’ Strike Fear ability to remove the Offense Up buff from his entire squad.

FYI this thread may be cleared out from time to time in order to prevent it from getting too long, I'll archive the old posts. Now, share those tips & tricks!

    Title: What Debuffs ?

    Game Mode: Arena, but usually found in GW

    Tip or Trick:
    When facing a squad with Sid and Vader, and often Kylo will be in this group as well.... Your opponent has planned on the Debuffs, so get rid of them using Admiral Akbar.
    Putting Akbar into your lineup will give you a chance to let your healers' cooldowns reset for the next node. Just make sure to wait until after Vader drops his AoE ;)

    Title: Galactic War Retreat

    Game Mode: Galactic War

    Tip or Trick text:To completely restart a match in Galactic War hit the gear icon in the top left of the battle screen, then 'retreat', then 'yes'.

    This will take you back to the before the match as though it never happened.

  • Title: Galactic War Seed Change

    Game Mode: Galactic War

    Tip or Trick Text: If you repeat a battle with exactly the same heroes you will get exactly the same results, so to change this you have to choose a different leader or change your heroes.

    Use this to prevent stuns, ability blocks etc.

    Title: Refreshing opponents

    Game Mode: Arena

    Tip or Trick text: Use the refresh button to refresh your opponents. The highest rank that you can battle will always be to the right side. Keep pressing refresh button to find out the highest you can battle. It can save you crystals as you can increase to higher ranks that way using fewer battles.
  • Title: Offense Up Possibility

    Game Mode: All

    Tip or Trick:
    While facing Savage or Lumi, you can use QGJ's "humbling blow" or Yoda's "Masterstroke" before those enemies have their buffs on.
    Meaning the dispel/steal works after they gain the buffs, therefore they get dispeled in the same round and you gain the offence up.Keep in mind that Lumi's buff doesn't go off as frequently as Savage's.
    This will probably work with other characters, that get buffs when being striked, too...i probably missed someone.

    Title: Status Effects

    Game Mode: Arena, GW

    Tip or Trick text: In most battles you will see red or green icons above a character's head. That means the character has a status effect. That could be beneficial (green) or detrimental (red). To learn more about the effect press and hold the icon and a description of the effect will appear. A character can have more than one effect active at the same time. Learn what the status effects are and how they can affect the team. Status Effects knowledge can mean victory rather than defeat.

    Example of positive status effect: Offense Up- grants a bonus of 50% to Physical and Special damage stats.
    Example of negative status effect: Healing Immunity- heroes effected by this cannot be healed.

    Title: Accont connected to only one device
    Game Mode: All
    Tip or Trick text: If you install this game on device owned by your child in guest mode never declare child's true age of your minor. If you do this , you will never see login to google in game's setting menu and if only you will find a joy in play , you will never be able to move this game to your own device!!! Your child will be frustrating and hate you when you will borrow her/his device for play.

    Title: QGJ free offense up
    Game Mode: All
    Tip or Trick text: If you have QGJ and your opponent Savage Opress , do not use your second ability as first but try the third on Savage (or other char with buff up on hit). You will receive free offense up for your team. It will work as long as the game will change the bugged damage calculating system , where damage is calculating before buffing/debuffing.

    Title: Kylo Ren's retribution
    Game Mode: All
    Tip or Trick text: If your QGJ wants to receive offense up from debuffing Kylo Ren's retribution, be sure your QGJ is enough healled. You can debuffing retribution , receive offense up for your team, and Kylo Ren will counter your QGJ without retribution. It will work as long as the game will change bugged damage calculating system , where damage is calculating before buffing/debuffing.

    Title: Calculate number of advantages
    Game Mode: All
    Tip or Trick text: If you need offense up as a result of QGJ's third ability, only strike opponent with fresh advantage . If you select one , who received single damage before you will not receive offense up. You have to count strikes as long as the game will change bugged damage calculating system , where the damage is calculating before buffing/debuffing.

    Title: Focus fire

    Game Mode: All

    Tip or Trick text: Focus your hits on one character at a time. A dead enemy won't be able to do any damage or healing.

    Title: prevent healing problem in GW
    Game Mode: GW
    Tip or Trick text: During GW not possibility to heal is big problem. This is a reason a killing opponent's Sid can be your first have to action (only his heal immunity is long). If you have QGJ as leader use his second ability to do this. He will call assist always from the same position of team. You can always break the fight, change char position in team and start the battle again. Do this as long as both QGJ and the assist will do enough damage on the target for kill him at once or in next strike. Very good for assist is Luminara because of her stong first ability, or GS because of free offense up chance.

    Title: Strategic use of cooldowns

    Game Mode: GW

    Tip or Trick text: The health and cooldowns for all heroes are saved between nodes. So save your cooldowns when you are almost done with one node.

    Title: Kill weaker characters first

    Game Mode: Light side/Dark side battles

    Tip or Trick text: In some battles you will face a boss and many minions that are often weaker. It is usually best to kill the weaker characters first then kill boss last.

    Title: Optimisation of gear pices hunting
    Game Mode: Light and Dark side battles
    Tip or Trick text: The game shows you places where you will find mats needed for your gear. You should know what mats you always need and you do not have it on stock every time. Select only places where you have chance to receive not only needed mats but in addition other mats you will need in future. This way select place for 10 energy instead of 6 energy if you will need green for possibility to collect purple additional. The better can be selecting a place for 12 or 16 energy if additional revard can be usable shard.

    Title: Icons in characters screen

    Game Mode: All

    Tip or Trick text: At a glance you can easily see which character has gear that can be equipped/crafted. Green + sign means you have required gear or enough mats to craft it. Orange + sign means you need to level your hero to be able to equip that gear.

    Title: Meta

    Game Mode: Arena

    Tip or Trick text: Meta in a simple way is the current state of the game. It's like the most popular deck in a card game. Read up on latest meta (current is speed) and plan your farming (GW/SA/Cantina/hard nodes) accordingly.

    Title: Training droids

    Game Mode: All

    Tip or Trick text: Start with highest * training droids you have & apply all of them minus 1, then the next highest * droid minus one, & so on until you’re using the 1* training droid to cap off the training level. Don't use Assign all or all your lower * droids are used and you waste credits & XP.
  • Title : Refreshing your ally list

    Game mode: All

    Tip or trick text: I often put my battles on auto (instead of using sims) so I get 20 ally points per battle instead of 10. When you have used your ally list up you can refresh them all by completing one of the challenges (It has to be one of the intel,agi,str challenges, the ones where you get 5 a day).
  • Title: Ally list says 35/35 but don't have 35 allies

    Game mode: All

    Tip or trick: If you are showing 35/35 allies but don't have the achievement yet or not showing many of your allies go to your allies, click request status on the right and it will show you expired allies (who take up your spaces), delete them and then put requests in for new allies
