Hello Holotable Heroes,

Since this is my first forum post, I’d like to introduce myself - I work on the analytics side of SWGOH mainly focusing on the in-game economy. So, I just do a lot of math.

With the upcoming release of Grand Arena Championships and the Geonosis Territory Battle, we will be introducing 2 new currencies, one earned from Grand Arena Championships and the other from the new Territory Battle.

New Grand Arena Championships Currency: Championship Tokens
Grand Arena Championship Tokens will be primarily earned through participation in Grand Arena Championship events, but they will also be earned through performing Feats. We’ll be introducing a new Grand Arena Championship tab to the store and we’ll have a post in the near future about what you’ll be able to purchase from there.

New Territory Battle Currency: Mk II Guild Event Tokens
Similar to how we added Gear 12+ as an exclusive reward to the Heroic Sith Triumvirate Raid, we’re adding a new store and exclusive currency to the new Geonosis Territory Battle to incentivize guilds to participate in the new content. Geonosis Territory Battle will be a difficult challenge for many Guilds but it's something for Guilds to strive towards over time. The rewards from this store will be very valuable for powering your team and enable your guild to complete older game modes even faster.

Guild Event Tokens will be earned from the Geonosian Territory Battle in addition to the new Mk II Guild Event Tokens.

Keep an eye out for more updates as we get closer to the release of Grand Arena Championships and the Geonosis Territory Battle.

    won't the new currencies devalue the older currencies?
    is seems the current in game economy is in a hyperinflation period devaluing many aspects of the game.
    @CG_Cyanides can you share how this hyperinflation period will be countered?

    "New Territory Battle Currency: Mk II Guild Event Tokens
    [...] The rewards from this store will be very valuable for powering your team and enable your guild to complete older game modes even faster. [...]"

    That reads like it's going to be the new g12 finishers that will get you to g13. So there's hope that it's not going to be a (close to) full stars only reward.

    they didn't say the new characters would be exclusive to the MK II currency so far, plus darth malak can still use it
  • I wanna say: “I much prefer the idea of getting currency and using it to purchase rewards that are actually helpful instead of randomizes crap I can’t use”. I wanna, but I feel like I’m missing something....

    I'm all for adding new shiny things, but we already have three currencies that can be removed without changing gameplay - training/ehnancement droids and sim tokens. We also have two other currencies that most players convert to shards as soon as they earn them - Arena and GW tokens. And there is also that Ally Points thingy. Perhaps some cleanup is in order?

    Your first three aren’t really a shop currency (they’re more of a resource, like credits), but droids especially are still relevant to newer players. IIRC sim tickets were a pain to remove.

    Arena tokens frequently are converted to prestige for me, I wouldn’t consider them shards only.

    If I were you, I'd start assuming that CG only looks forward (primarily to their next revenue source), that way you can just resign yourself to your daily buying of shard shop currency from three other places just to buy gear from the fourth.

    Mk II GET store is such an embarrassment... Can’t wait for GW Mk II, Cantina Store Mk II and Shard Shop Mk II :unamused:

    Don't worry, we'll get hundreds of mkII shard shop currency from the 2022 HAAT. And nowhere to spend it.

    Interesting. Hopefully still get a decent amount of guild event tokens for the current store. Also makes me wonder if they will be adding any new characters in the future to it or expand the choices into 12+ gear.

    Why not just add GET 2 options to the GET store? The Weekly Shipments tab already demonstrates that you can have multiple currencies purchases in one area. This way all TB related stuff is in one tab and doesn't add another scrolling action.

    Ehh, it is what it is. Creating a 2nd guild event shop just seems lazy to me, but oh well. I’m just wondering how impactful this will be. Is it poaching season for the top guilds?

    I can't understand why anyone would be upset over this. Not putting more stuff in the GEC store means you're free to spend it on gear or Hoda/Wampa/Malak shards without having to worry that you'll fall behind on new stuff.
