SWGoH Community Update: Grand Arena Championships, Geonosis Territory Battles & more


The past few weeks have seen a lot of new content and challenges faced, for both the Community and the Dev team over at Capital Games. These posts will go out often, so you can keep up to date with the game and all the stuff you might have missed over the various platform’s information is passed on!

In June, we have seen two huge new game modes introduced into the game. The game modes are Grand Arena Championships (GAC) and the Geonosis Territory Battles (Geo TB). Both come with an array of new rewards, mechanics and challenges for us all to eventually conquer!


Grand Arena Championships:

Unfortunately, the first GAC rounds were not implemented correctly, so we all got to miss out on the fun for a day or two extra days. However, CG granted everyone incredibly generous rewards, which we can all agree was an awesome move! The new and improved round of GAC seems to be working smoothly, which is great for all of us! However, CG has identified an issue with the tallying of points, so don’t be too concerned if you were/are facing weird rankings that you cannot understand. I believe a fix for this should be out very shortly.


Geonosis Territory Battles – Separatist Might:

This new TB is proving to be extremely difficult, with only the top of the top guilds being able to competently move through each phase and gain some decent stars. With my guild, we are lucky to scrape a star after each phase, but others are already sitting on 17/33 in phase 3. Regardless of everyone’s rankings and rewards, I do love the fresh content and challenges this new map has brought to the game! Something to work towards is always one of my favourite things to do in this game, as it brings your guild closer together and allows you to learn as much as you can about the game to become better.

Along with the new TB, we got the introduction of 2 new characters! Geonosian Brood Alpha and Wat Tambor are both incredibly useful characters who incredibly boost the team that they synergise with. Our mod guides are in the works for both of these new characters.


Geonosian Brood Alpha:

Brood Alpha is a character that makes the Geonosian’s very powerful as a unit and is a perfect 5th slot for that team. On top of this, the other 4 older Geonosian’s are due for a rework shortly. If I were you, I would start to look into this team, as I believe they will be a great GAC defensive team or even offensive team for the foreseeable future.


Wat Tambor:

Wat Tambor is looking to be like a combination of Hermit Yoda and the Raid Han Solo, which basically means he is going to be very fast and beneficial for any Separatist/ Dark Side Droid team! Make sure you get those Geonosian’s geared and starred for the event to unlock this amazing support character!


Event Calendar – July (All dates are subject to change! *)

Important events highlight July’s events calendar in SWGoH. Here are the headlining events:

  • One Famous Wookie
  • Flight of the Falcon
  • Pieces and Plans
  • Rey’s Hero’s Journey
  • Daring Droid
  • Luke Skywalker Hero’s Journey

All of these characters, and one ship, are extremely important. July is going to be a huge month!

I hope you are all prepared for this Month’s content and are enjoying the new GAC + Geo TB that is currently running. I hope this kept you up to date with the main news from the SWGoH Community!

Best of luck Holotable Heroes!
