    I stumbled across the mobile game Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes and wanted to know if anyone here has played it? It's a turn based battle game. Kind of fun!

    I did for a couple of weeks! Didn't expect to be entertained for that long. Had to delete it due to lack of storage, though.. Haha

    I've started it recently, I'm level 26 and it's fun but it looks like there's a lot of farming.

    I'm playing it, although my brain keeps telling me to uninstall it. Level 54, beginning to tire, but there's always something to pull me back in. It really is best to avoid it, haha. Too addictive while not really much more than a management game specifically designed to drain you for your credits, virtual and real, and as you reach about lvl 40, it becomes very limiting, but if you don't mind a narrow framework... Basically, the game is a slot machine.

    My most powerful characters at the moment include the obvious starter characters, Clone Wars Chewbacca, Consular Jedi, Biggs Darklighter.. in addition I have collected and "grown" Princess Leia, Luke Skywalker, Qui-Gon Jinn, Grand Moff Tarkin, Boba Fett, K2SO, and Scarif Rebel Soldier to become my powerhouses. And ten shards away from finally getting Darth Vader.

    If you like collecting...over an infuriating long time...Welcome to a Galaxy of Heroes :confused:(pwned)

    Only just started playing this myself, seems quite entertaining although I can see it just being a massive slog to get your upgrades etc

    It is. Every day I tell myself "Today I quit" but it is insidiously designed to keep you hanging on. Just three more shards...just one more equipment slot....just one more upgrade...just one more mod....just one more ability mat....just one more character... just one more...more...more
    And when you look at it objectively it isn't even fun (pwned)
    ...and it isn't really going anywhere.

    Fortunately, unless you wish to get rid of real money, there are some limitations in place that makes it hard to play for more than an hour or two a day.
    The same limitations, however, also make it less enjoyable because you constantly "fight the system".

    I've been playing a while, its a pretty fun game, I've gotten to level 51 and unfortunately after a while progress slows down and almost forces you to spend money to advance further.

    I would love it only if I knew how to play it exactly, haha! It actually is fun with my little squad taking turns killing the bad squad. I just still dunno how to exactly get new characters for it. Otherwise, it would be a lot funner game!

    You do know the game has its own forum, a subreddit, AND you can ask us? (c-3po)

    Looks good, but every SW game I load on my iPad I never end up finishing. So this is a pass for me.

    Interesting tidbits from SW: Galaxy of Heroes

    Boba Fett has the special ability to resurrect himself after being defeated.

    Just announced today is a new character will be available during an event this month - Darth Nihilus. Thought this was particularly curious.

    Played nonstop for about a week...then it got really tedious. I still open it up every once in a while. I'm level 47. I like that there are tons of different things to spend your different kinds of money on. But the gameplay itself is not particularly fun to me...WHY DO I KEEP COMING BACK???!!! I guess the game is a bit Stockholmy.
