SWGoH Acronyms & Definitions

Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes is like many other games, and companies, and organizations in this world – it has it’s own list of acronyms, abbreviations and strange nicknames. Because of this, we decided a place to house all of these definitions is in order. Please feel free to send your recommendations to this page as I am sure we will miss a few. Special thanks to Woodroward from the EA SWGoH forums for assisting on a few of these terms as well!
