Territory Wars Guide

NEW in January 2021! Our Territory Wars character priority list has been added and will be regularly updated while additional Territory Wars content is in the works. 


Overall Territory Wars Strategy:

Territory Wars has changed a lot over the many months since it was released and we will work to do a better job of keeping this guide update.

To start, you have three time periods – registration, defensive setup and offensive attacks. The goal, of course is to outscore your opponents, but efficiency is the key to this.

The original Territory Wars guide took a look at how to setup TW defenses, attack effectively, and plan out your teams for success.

With the lack of new content in the game over the first half of 2019, Territory Wars and the similar, yet individualistic Grand Arena, received the bulk of the focus for many players including farm strategies, extra Zeta materials, etc.

The current Territory War meta has evolved from the early days of all out offense and ties, into a defense-heavy strategy that uses a couple crucial teams that the AI can play well (AKA not screw up entirely). This means building teams that excel on defense and constructing offensive teams that can counter the current TW meta. However, the key to success is not just what to place, but placing in accordance to what your roster can bare and being flexible with your choices so you don’t impact other critical teams.

Thus, the first and most important step for being a successful player in Territory Wars is making your teams in advance. What many find helpful is using the squad planner and making a TW Offense and Defense tab. The goal is to make teams that don’t poach characters from each other, while being mindful of the strategy and character types that those teams need to succeed.

Once you have made those tabs in your squad planner (either in the game or in swgoh.gg), you are ready to get started. And remember, if you don’t have these teams exactly, that’s OK. Take the themes of the teams and run with them! Just remember to plan ahead and think about what you can field to take on the current TW defense meta.

This Territory Wars guide has been simplified to focus on two areas:
