Phase 4 of the newest Territory Battles are here as the Rise of the Empire Territory Battle was launched in December 2022. 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 Fleet Combat Mission on Kessel that requires the Ghost at 7-stars.

Phase 4 Neutral Fleet Combat Mission with Ghost Battle Notes:
12.17.22 – I fought this battle twice with the Executor and tried to fit the Ghost in with the Hound’s Tooth both times and the Razor Crest and Xanadu Blood on alternating days. Neither experiment worked out as this feels like a Profundity-or-bust kind of mission.
12.31.22 – I have upgraded the Profundity to 7-stars and now get to try this battle with a new Capital Ship. I have been getting word from guild mates that the battle can be won with the Executor, but based on my earlier attempt I will have to review their strategy and try that in a future Rise of the Empire TB.
With the Rebel Y-wing, Ghost and Outrider as my starters, I go after Xanadu Blood first, but find this is not going to play out at all like the Operation Stardust event to unlock the Profundity. After losing my Y-wing they heal up all of the damage I did on Xanadu Blood and I am rethinking my use of the Outrider as a starter in this lineup. The enemies take out my reinforcement, Biggs Darklighter’s X-wing, rather quickly and kill the Ghost leaving just the Outrider. I call Han’s Falcon but it is too little, too late as I need to review my strategy on this battle and how Confuse impacts these ships as this is a bust.
12.31.22 – One more try the time around and I start with the Rebel Y-wing, Ghost and Han’s Millennium Falcon as my starters after the Outrider combo fail. I try to go after Xanadu Blood and it is back under Stealth quickly, something I should pay closer attention to, and decide to go all-in on the Hound’s Tooth. This proves successful thanks to the Y-wing’s Protection Disruption, and I kill it off and bring in the Phantom II. Han’s MF wiggles to cleanse the Confusion, and I get some hits in on their XB before they kill the Ghost. XB gets healed up and I lay some hits on IG-88’s ship and my ultimate is up as I remove the Executor from the battle and should be home free. I lose the Outrider but trade out their IG-2000 ship and call Cassian’s U-wing to help out and this is the dagger as I get the win and 987,188 Territory Points that comes with it.
