Phase 4 of the Rise of the Empire Territory Battle is here after the December 2022 launch. Unlike previous Territory Battles in SWGoH, the Rise of the Empire TB features Light Side, Dark Side and Neutral paths and Platoons are now called Operations.
The Rise of the Empire Territory Battle features six Phases which last 24 hours each. Each of the six Phases of the event has a Special Mission rewarding Mk III Guild Event Tokens in Phases 1, 4, 5 and 6 and Reva (Third Sister) shards in Phase 3.
The following is a Walkthrough of my experiences in Phase 4 that will be updated over time. Specifically, this covers the Neutral Combat Mission on Kessel in the top right that does not have any specific characters required, just all characters used must be at Relic 8 or higher.

Phase 4 Neutral Combat Mission Battle Notes:
01.01.23 – Without a Wat Tambor type of character own this team and a non-traditional Lord Vader team, I am not confident going into this one. Once again, like I mention with the Phase 4 Neutral Combat Mission in the Top Left, I have to use what I have at Relic 8 or higher, and while I have a lot of characters that qualify, finding a combo that makes sense is tricky.
Lord Vader does his thing and Piett marks Ninth Sister and after a couple of AoE attacks from the Pykes I lose Thrawn. The Damage Over Times start to kick in and two Pykes are down, and I lose Piett to another AoE before another LV AoE that finishes off the other enemies within the next turns.
The second wave is the same as the linked battle above, three Pykes and three Rodian Pirates. KRU stuns a Pyke and I start working on the Pyke on the right, getting LV to an AoE faster than expected with his ultimate up next. I go into ultimate at 49 stacks of Underestimated, kill one Pyke and lose Ninth Sister. I scan the enemies and see the DoTs are 6+ on all and work on those with fewer, hoping I can outlast the bad guys. KRU spreads Tenacity Down with his basic and Lord Vader is up with another Unshackled Emotions, using it to kill the enemies on their next round of turns from the DoTs as I gain another 493,594 Territory Points.
