Hi Holotable Heroes,

Grand Arena was recently announced in the Road Ahead and we will be posting a ton more information about it in the future. Similar to the Mods 2.0 Megathread, follow this thread for all posts and details related to the Grand Arena

What is Grand Arena
At the beginning of the Grand Arena Event, you’ll be matched with 7 other players from across the game who have a Galactic Power score very similar to your own. In the first round, you’ll be matched up against a random player from your group to essentially fight a mini-Territory War. You’ll then set up defenses to defend your own territories, as well as attack your opponent's territories in an attempt to overcome their defenses. You’ll earn banners for successfully attacking and defeating an opponent’s territory, as well as defending your own territory. At the end of the battle, whoever has earned the most banners will be the winner.

Each round, you’ll be matched with other players who have the same win/loss record as you, and you’ll never fight the same opponent twice in a Grand Arena event. You’ll earn special rewards after each offensive battle you complete, at the end of each of the 3 rounds, and a final set of rewards at the end of the event based on your standing in the 8-player group.

  • Well I'm glad you have decided to make ANOTHER game feature that equates to best speed mods = win!
  • This sounds really awesome. For anyone that likes TW this is exciting. @CG_SBCrumb any more info on potential prizes?
  • Why the idea seems neat, with the bugs in previous content releases, I’m not hopeful for a clean release. I just hope they beta test this to its fullest before they test it on us players.
  • Hard to say whether or not it will be good until we actually get our hands on it. I could easily see this eventually become in something very fun or super annoying depending on if it's a daily, weekly, or monthly thing.
  • prizes include 8* mace windu reworked
  • Interesting. Will hold judgment for now. Slightly underwhelming but still got me a little hyped, especially about payouts. Hoping the original trilogy characters is a hint at Jedi Luke.
  • Ultra

    This is great news. I like how you are matched with similar people with similar win/loss ratio so its not one-sided and fun. Sure, losers will still whine but its more about singular individual strategy and strength of faction development

    Don’t like the initial sound of it — sounds like the Grand Whale Arena. But only time will tell.

    Dont sound.
    Its exactly this.

    How so? Meeting a whale in your range will be an advantage. They probably have inflated GP due to. many more 7* and less mods...
  • Can we be matched with guildies in this mode?
  • Super excited for this!
