I hope you all enjoyed the Resistance season of the Grand Arena Championships, because we are about to launch our next season with a new theme, the Sith!
With the major role the Sith played in Rise of Skywalker, we wanted to take an opportunity to showcase the Sith and how they have been portrayed in Galaxy of heroes. The format for this Grand Arena is 5v5 squads (no fleet zones) and on January 23rd you’ll be able to sign up for the Championship and prepare yourself to tackle the new feats created specifically for this season.
Brothers in Arms: Winning a Grand Arena battle using both Darth Maul and his brother Savage Opress
The Puppet Master: Winning a Grand Arena battle using both versions of Sheev Palpatine in the same team.
Forced Lightning: Winning a Grand Arena battle using three of our lightning throwers (Emperor Palpatine, Count Dooku and Sith Assassin)
Welcome to the Darth Side: Make up a team of entirely Sith Lords and win a Grand Arena battle (Who are Sith Lords? Anyone with Darth in their name, Count Dooku and Emperor Palpatine)
Execute Order 66: Defeating 12 enemy characters in Grand Arena with Clone Sergeant - Phase 1, ARC Trooper, CC-2224 “Cody”, Emperor Palpatine, or Darth Sidious.
Double Bladed: Defeat 12 enemy characters in Grand Arena with any character who uses a double-bladed lightsaber (this includes light side characters who wield such a weapon!)
This is a lot of stuff to keep track of, especially while the season is running and these feats appear, so to help you out, you can find a special Newsletter spelling out which characters (and ships!) count for the different feats. This Newsletter will be available during the entire duration of the Grand Arena Championship.
Last, don’t miss out on the new seasonal portraits of Darth Sidious, the B-28 Extinction-class bomber, and CC-2224 “Cody” that you can earn during the Championship.
