Greetings everyone! We always say that the Community is the best thing about Prophecy!  Here is a chance to get to know one of our members, Sintara.

Main Character(s) Name(s): Zephyr/Sintara

Discord Handle: Sintara #9144

Player Association: NYTES

Where in the RL world do you live? Sunny state of Arizona

How long did you play the live version of Star wars galaxies? From 2 weeks after launch til NGE

What type of work do you do? Hospital Surgery Coordinator, now a SAHM.

What does a typical Star Wars Galaxies day consist of for you? I have many wheels turning at the same time but I am always focusing on creating events for my guild.  I feel that's the best way to experience this game is by grouping with your peeps.

What was the race and profession of your very first character? I had a Human Tailor. 

What is the one thing you’ve always wanted to be/do in Star Wars Galaxies on live that you've done (or have yet to do here)? SPACE!  I wish I did a lot of space back then.  Heck, I wish I did a lot of space now! Smile

What other hobbies or activities do you take part in, other than playing Star Wars Galaxies? Bowling and Golfing day with family, going out with my gal pals, Karaoke, Dancing and spending time with my little guy.

What race and profession is your main character? My main character is a Zabrak, Melee Spy

What do you like the most about the profession you have chosen for your main character?  I have always preferred Melee to range, and loved using polearm as my weapon. Oh! And sneaking up on peeps is always nice too! /wink

What faction is your main character? Imperial, always.

What is your favorite player owned ship? TIE Interceptor, for aesthetic reasons.

What is your favorite ground vehicle? RIC-920 Rickshaw, again, for aesthetic reasons.

How did you choose your main character's name? Like most, I wanted to have a unique name.  In 2003, I typed in “Sintara” on the internet and saw a lot of Frank Sinatra, but nothing spelled like Sintara, therefore I knew it was a good name that no one has taken before.

What is your favorite planet and/or city and why? The beach of Kaadara, Naboo is my favorite city  and planet.  It was prime real estate having a house by the beach on the Shadowfire server back in live, and I have so many good memories there.

What is your favorite NPC? In an NGE Server during Empire day, The Darth Vader that flies down to Theed and gets escorted to pick a player and gets a badge, he is my favorite.

What are the most credits you have ever spent on purchasing a single item for one of your characters? If we're talking a singe item, 35Mil? I can't remember, but it's for a sith holo 4/5 waist pack.  I ain't grinding that @&%t Tongue but that's the Master Tailor in me talking, so I give props to the true Jedi of this game. /wink

What do you like best about SWG: Prophecy? I like Prophecy's unique feature of having the Star Wars Trading Card Game active.  I cross server play 5 different servers and they don't have that.  I also like what they have for their Beast Master here, but I have not tried that yet.  The best part of Prophecy is it's community and developers.  When I decided to start and build my guild here, I received much positive encouragement from them all.  I invited the developers to my discord, and Chavex joined our guild's Q&A session.  That's never happened to any other servers I have ever been in.  He learned of our tales and woes about SWG and is very open to suggestions to make Prophecy a better server for its players.

Describe your best experience playing Star Wars Galaxies.  It's so many little moments all wrapped up into one big bow of nostalgia.  I remembered making Sintara on Shadowfire.  I remember landing on C-net and seeing a sea of players and the chat box was going so fast, there was no way to really read it all.  I would get /tell's but did not know how to respond back.  There was no Wiki to help you out with what to do next.  Everything was done by trial and error and everyone was forced to depend on everyone else.  You didn't have 5 toons to help you out, so other players took care of you.  I remember my guild going to Dantooine to try out the “spin groups”.  I remember someone shouting 10K for Pickets!!! So everyone went to the mission terminal and grabbed missions for pickets.  By trial and error we got smart and started getting missions around the same direction, so that we didn't have to run/walk to our missions so far apart.  If your mission is 7k meters away, usually that meant it would take you about 7 minutes to get to your destination if you were on a swoop.  Imagine not having a swoop or vehicle to get you there and how long it took to get to your next group mission.  The SWG world to us was HUGE!  We would need to put a camp down in between fights to heal and bs, tell stories while we sit around the campfire.  I was only a novice tailor at that time, but I picked up novice dancer as well so I can be of use to my guild when we stop to camp and heal.  At the end of our run, they all gave me their hides for my tailor and I gave them loots they needed. 

I also had a Master Doc toon on Wanderhome name Zephyr, whom I usually had parked in front of the Starport peddling 10k a med buff.  I was on dial up and I would sometimes lose connection while I have a long line of people.  They would wait for me to come back to the game.  Sometimes taking half an hour to get back, but they waited patiently, and always cheered to have me back.

Most importantly, I remember my friends.  Just to mention some, DJ Purplebunny from Canada who had a radio station we could listen to while base busting.  Gomah, known for the best armor you could ever get your hands on.  Gi'Dagoon, a Jedi Knight and owner of Lil Tokyo, the town that had the Imperial outpost from the destroyed Restuss event spawn directly inside his city, a strategic stronghold and the reason every big rebel guild tried to buy off, but thankfully didn't succeed.  Gi' later became my real life husband.  We dated in game and I remember him being hunted down by Bounty Hunters while having a picnic in the Corellia Agrilat Swamp. He destroyed a couple, and eventually just paid off the third so we could have some peace and quiet, lol.  I also went to people's wedding at the Capitol – Theed Palace, parties celebrating their new cities and guilds.  Every building was being used for roleplaying.  People made it the place that they wanted it to be.  This is just some of my favorite memories.  I have hundreds of fond memories of SWG, and I am so lucky to have experienced them. Even now, making new memories and knowing there are so many more to come, let fly!

  Friday Feature: All about Fish
Posted by: Chavex - 05-14-2021, 09:34 AM - Forum: Community News - No Replies

[Image: klIZiH4.png]

Greetings Prophecy!  Its time for another installment of the Friday Feature, today's topic is Fish and Fishing.  Hope you enjoy!


Not everything in SWG has to be about running and gunning. Sometimes we like to sit back, enjoy the scenery and maybe even do some
fishing. Now, I'm sure most of you know that fishing is a thing in SWG, but for those that don't know and those of you who haven't tried it, I'll give you a quick and dirty rundown of the mechanic.


Getting Ready to Fish
So, what do we need to fish?  Well pretty simple really, we need a fishing pole, some bait, and some suitable water. (Extra credit for a sweet fishing attire, but not required lol)

Fishing Pole
Its an equippable item and it takes the place of your weapon.  It can contain one stack of bait in it (and its similar to a lightsaber as you have to unequip it and open it to either add or change your bait).  Fishing poles are crafted by traders and there is still debate whether the quality of the pole really matters or not when fishing, but if you can make or get one rated at 70 or higher you should be fine.

Fishing Bait
There are 4 types of fishing bait in game: Grub Bait, Worm Bait, Chum Bait, and Insect Bait. They are all effectively the same during fishing, so doesn't matter which type you use (seriously, doesn't matter).

How do I get bait?
Well you have 2 main ways to do it.  You can simply walk around and /forage to get the Non-Chum Bait varieties, or after you start fishing and catching fish, you can filet your caught fish and get Chum Bait from them in addition to the fish meat.  You won't need much to get started, as you only lose the bait if a fish steals the bait or if your line snaps.  A stack of 5-10 will get you going until you can start resupplying with Chum Bait from your caught fish.

Fishing Locations
You can fish on any planet except Kashyyyk and Mustafar (Yes, that means you can fish on Tatooine!)  When you start fishing the location will pop up and show you two factors:  Fish Density and Vegetation.  they are on a 0 to 5 star scale rating.  High fish density will lead to more nibbles and bites (and in theory more caught fish) and High Vegetation will lead to more junk items like datadisks and has a higher chance of snagging your line when a fish bites.  Ultimately, having a lower vegetation is more important/preferred than a high fish density.  The loss of bait with snagged lines is more troublesome and should be avoided if you can. Also important, you want to find an area of shallow water so you can walk around a bit to move and try to improve your catch chances.

Okay Okay, I got my pole, my bait and I found some water..... Now how do I fish?

Glad you asked, just walk in the water a bit (don't go too far as if you start swimming you won't be able to fish), and then type /fish to start the mini game.

Once that is done you should get a pop up window within a few seconds.

[Image: i8RFT6x.png?1]
This window gives us a lot of information, it tells us the fish density and vegetation like we mentioned just a bit ago, it tells us how far away our line is (hint: keep it 3-5 m away from you so you're not running around trying to catch it), shows us our bait status, and the status of the fish in general and your next action.
A good rule is to always have your "Next Action" filled with a command.  It doesn't matter whether you select Tug up/right/left etc as they all essentially do the same thing, but you always want an action in the queue so when the mini game updates, it defaults to that action.  Lets go a bit further and discuss the mini game updates:

Waiting:
We're doing just that, waiting for a fish to find your delicious bait 
Nibble:
A fish is around your bait and investigating
Bite:
You got yourself a bite, now its time to set the hook and reel in your catch if you can
Caught Something:
You've caught your fish, but its not over yet, now you need to reel in your catch

In order to catch a fish, you have to go through those  phases.  Once you get a "Caught Something" message and you select your next action the pop up window should go away and then you start to reel in your fish.  We had talked about keeping ourselves 3-5 away from our fishing line and this is where it pays off.  The fish is gonna run and move and move your fishing line, which is fine, but in order to reel in your catch, you must have the line about 3-5 meters from you.  Don't get too close or you'll lose your fish, and vice versa don't be too far away or you'll lose it as well.  (Hint: If you are having trouble finding that sweet spot, try walking out in the water a bit and then turning to face the shore and fishing that way, as the fish can't run away onto land, so it limits how far away they can go)

Hey, look at that, I caught a fish!  What do I do with it?
Well in addition to having a pretty cool piece of decoration for your house, you can also filet the fish and get fish meat which can be used in food crafting, you can also start working on your fishing collection which will get you some pretty cool rewards (a nice fish tank for your house if you complete them all)

[Image: qsjR0GS.png?1]

Now, as far as the varieties of fish, each planet will have the main fish varieties seen here:

[Image: mXtxwyF.png?1]
In addition, they will have "rare" varieties which are used for the collections and Naboo, Dathomir, Endor and Yavin have special fish varieties for the follow on fishing collections.

So that's fishing in a nutshell, if you've never tried it you'll either love it or hate it lol.  Feel free to ask any questions pertaining to it, and come on out to one of the fishing tournaments we have to test your angling ability and get some cool prizes.


  Mustafar Scavenger Hunt
Posted by: adorkdarkfly - 05-09-2021, 06:20 PM - Forum: Community News - No Replies

Greetings Prophecy!  It's time again for a Scavenger Hunt!  Today's hunt is all about Mustafar.
How does one do the scavenger hunt?  Well its simple.  You will find 6 Lava Crystals at various locations on Mustafar.  All you have to do is find them and send the waypoints to Adork on Discord when you have all 6 of them. 

[Image: fBMlcxQ.png]

Once you have the waypoints, send a DM to me via Discord.  
I will be standing by to give you your rewards. 

The first 3 people to find all of them will receive the following:

1st Place: 5 TCG packs of your choice 
2nd Place: 3 TCG packs of your choice 
3rd Place: 1 TCG pack of your choice 

We can tell you that the Lava Crystals will not be "in the middle of nowhere" (meaning just randomly placed on the planet).  Traders and entertainers are encouraged to bring appropriate attire/items or a friend to deal with any aggressive natives that they may encounter.


Best of Luck to you all!!


Information Game Update 4.6 Patch Notes

Greetings Prophecy!
Vengeance Server will go offline today for Game Update 4.6
*A client patch is needed for this update so make sure to run the Launcher and Update your Game Client*


New Content:
Secrets of the Syren (Courtesy of Blood and the SWG: Expanded team)

-Secrets of the Syren is an epic multiplayer quest line added to the game in 2005 prior to the New Game Enhancements (NGE) and sadly
was removed from the game with the release of the Battle of Restuss

-Blood and the SWG: Expanded team have brought the quest back to life and graciously allowed us to implement it here on Prophecy. 
Many thanks the Blood for allowing us to use the content, and to Mana for doing thousands of conversions on our code to implement it!

-Secrets of the Syren was designed for high-level combat characters. It is also recommended for players to have high-level space combat capacities. The quest line is faction restricted: you can start the quests as Rebel, Imperial or neutral but then, at some point in the game, you will have to choose between the Empire or the Rebellion.

-To Start the questline, Speak to one of these NPC's:
Rebels: Veega Madish (/way -5203 -2572) Corellia, Tyrena Cantina
Neutral: Tyla Jinn (/way -5181 4258) Naboo, Theed Cantina
Imperial: Jevan Monsul (/way -1399 -3675) Tatooine, Bestine Cantina

A wiki article is setup for those who would like it here:  https://swgprophecy.fandom.com/wiki/Secr..._the_Syren

-The Final Rewards for completion are SWG: Prophecy specific, so even if you have done this on another server, it should still yield you some pretty cool rewards!

-If you do run into any bugs please report them to a member of the QA team so we can address them as soon as they show.

-IMPORTANT NOTE:  AFK farming in the Secrets of the Syren locations is NOT allowed (that may change later down the road as more people complete the questline), but in order to keep things running smoothly for others, we are keeping those areas off limits for AFK farming. CSR's will be monitoring these bunkers/areas more frequently to ensure compliance.  If you run into players who are violating this rule please reach out to a staff member for resolution. 



Quality of Life Updates/Bug Fixes:
-There are now Trail Guides at the bottom of the Ryatt Trail in the event you fall through the trail and they will teleport you to the top of the trail.
-Removed sprint stim from junk dealer 
-Midlithe Crystals are No Trade Shared
-Fixed Exar Kun Caretaker executioner mechanic (You have to kill the executioners otherwise the instance will reset after the 3rd prisoner dies)
-Fixed Naboo tier 7 rebel/imperial duty missions
-Removed junk dealer kit (Blue/Orange Rug, Naboo Sculpture, Glass Table Top, etc) limitations (You can have more than one at a time now)
-Added missing holiday foods to vengeance outpost vendors and removed timers from foods
-Adding Missing Stims from the GCW bases 
-Fixed Naar root, and adjusted the Witches of Dathomir stims No Trade Shared vice No Trade
-Theed Cantina Imperial forces have been removed until Empire day


Vote Reward Vendor
-We thank you for continuing to vote for us on TopG, and we know we've been slacking with Vote Rewards, but fear not, we have restocked the Vendor with 4 new items for your continued hard work!
*New Items*
-SWG: Prophecy Rug
-Aurilian Obelisk
-C-3P0 Bobblehead
-Stormtrooper Bobblehead

*Note: The Obelisk can be purchased 4 times and can be placed in cities!
*Note: The Aurilian Crystal decoration can now have multiples in player cities!



May the Fourth be With You!
-We do have some special surprises in store this week as well, we don't want to give too much away, but those players who are in tune with the "force" should pay special attention and look for anomalies, and those players who don't put much faith in hokey religions should keep their comlinks close at hand for any incoming transmissions 

Here is a little bit more information from our Discord Announcement:
The Staff of SWG: Prophecy would like to commemorate and celebrate “May the 4th” with a two-day special event. On concluding each day of the event, those community members participating in the event will be granted a special badge and title. Also, Iconic representatives of the Empire and Rebellion have decided to make their presence known... These representatives request an audience with you (Events will be held on May 4th and 5th at 3:00pm EST & 8:00pm EST - locations TBA).

  Player Spotlight: Eusi
Posted by: Chavex - 04-11-2021, 11:39 PM - Forum: Community News - No Replies

[Image: rG5TcyC.jpg]

Greetings Prophecy!  Something new we are trying to implement is a Player Spotlight.  We always say that the Community is the best thing about Prophecy, and what better way to learn about them than calling them out? LOL.  With that being said, our first person to hear from is Eusi!  Lets get to it...

Main Character(s) Name(s):  Jean Grey; but I also have at my disposal Alih Ekoc, Aromik, Ojjapa and the world revered Hong-Kong Phooey
Discord Handle:  Eusi
Player Association:  My Guild is LIONS
Where in the RL world do you live?  I live in Essex, United Kingdom
How long did you play the live version of Star wars galaxies?  I first played SWG in the days when Sony ran it and played on Radiant server  I played for a long time, not sure how long though, but it ran into years in total.
What type of work do you do?  I am retired now, but do a bit of proofreading for the role-playing guides/rule books that my son is writing.
What does a typical Star Wars Galaxies day consist of for you?  Sorry, there is no such thing as a 'typical' StarWars day, which is why I like it as much as I do.  Usually, I will start by running around checking all my characters to make sure that the traders have not been slacking during the hours I have not been online.  Then, I will probably go up and do some asteroid  mining in space, followed by any trader builds i have to do.  (time for a coffee break)  After that, i will go fishing with Hong-Kong, make some stuffed toys, asteroid mining or just up in Ord killing ships with Alih, build a few structures with Ojjapa, do a bit of decorating with Jean (or just take her and go murder stuff.  Aromik just sits at home and waits for the rest of the LIONS to come online and then he will be taken out to the killing fields.  A lot of times, my toons will be up in the gunship of our Guild Boss cos i must admit i love space
What was the race and profession of your very first character?  Back on Radiant, my very first character was an entertainer.
What is the one thing you’ve always wanted to be/do in Star Wars Galaxies on live that you've done (or have yet to do here)?  I have always wanted my traders to be really good at their job, but so far only Ojjapa the Strucutres and Hong-Kong my tailor, seem to be getting down and dirty.  I can't seem to get to terms with the armoursmith or shipwright, but I know that one day a little light bulb will go off in my head and i will have cracked it.
What other hobbies or activities do you take part in, other than playing Star Wars Galaxies?  When I am not in SWG, i like to do role-playing, reading, I dabble doing a bit of beading now and then, I have started making dreamcatchers, I can knit, sew and crotchet.  I really like cooking, unfortunately my baking leaves a bit to be desired though.  I think my favourite real life thing to do, is gardening and painting ornaments for the garden.
What race and profession is your main character? Jean Grey is a Jedi by profession and is a human Rebel
What do you like the most about the profession you have chosen for your main character?  To me, Jedi is the best profession in StarWars, I guess the reason I like it is cos my all-time favourite character from the movies is Darth Vader and that is how he started out - so, you never know, Jean might yet become a Sith!  Watch this space....
What is your favorite player owned ship?  This is an easy one - my little JSF.  I really like this fast little craft.  I know it isn't one of the big, kick-ass gunships, but I have so much fun in it when I am just up in space filling in some time during the day.
What is your favorite ground vehicle?  This one is easy, the TSMEU-6 Personal Wheel Bike is the one I use on a day-to-day basis on all my toons.  However, I also like my Koro-2 Exodrive and my personal aim is to get my hands on a jet pack (but that is still at the  'work in progress' stage).
How did you choose your main character's name?  She had a totally different name when first created but then I was having a good giggle with one of the guys one day in-game about his character's names and I decided to change her name to Jean Grey.
What is your favorite planet and/or city and why?  Naboo is my favourite planet and Theed is the city i like best there.  No particular reason, I just like them - no sand, not too many trees, good fishing.....
What is your favorite NPC?  Well, silly questions, Lord Vader of course!  2nd in line is Boba Fett (you gotta love him).  Is it wrong that there is no Jedi amongst them?  No worries....
What are the most credits you have ever spent on purchasing a single item for one of your characters?  Six million credits is the one that springs to mind, maybe because I just paid that for the 35s the other day, but I have a feeling there might be something much bigger that i have forgotten about.
What do you like best about SWG: Prophecy?  Now I have to make all the staff's heads grow!  What can I say?  Prophecy is the best - end of!  The staff are always there to help, even when it is something silly they come along and sort it out.  There doesn't seem to be a 'mini-Hitler' ruling over the server - and if there is, you guys keep him/her well hidden!  The atmosphere in the game is always good-humoured, again, the players are so helpful to each other and I know a lot of them have given me huge amounts of help getting on with the game - a great big THANK YOU to them!  I like the fact that a toon can solo a whole lot of dungeons  and stuff, there are not that many that I cannot take a toon into and come out alive on Prophecy.  You don't have 'ott' levels on the bosses either, another good point.  We are kept up to date with what is happening on the server and the forums are full of helpful hints etc.  Also, the team seems to take onboard suggestions made by the players and seem to listen to what the users want/request.  All in all, a really nice place to be is Prophecy!
Describe your best experience playing Star Wars Galaxies.  Gonna sound silly, but one of my best so far is also the funniest!  My friend and I read a message that was broadcast - something about trouble in Restuss.  Not taking the time to read it properly, we took off to 'help' the poor folks being over-run by those pesky Imps!  We spent a good amount of time (for us) running around killing stormtroopers and then realised that there were other players there too so went running over to help them - OOPS!  who ran straight into the wrong folks?!?  Next thing I know is I am waking up in the med center - we didn't realise we were in the middle of the pvp'ing and laughed all the way home about it.  lol  Thank you, Mr You-Know-Who for killing me!  lol  Ooooooh!  Just remembered another one!  When Lord Vadar gave Jean her ship and then not long afterwards, in Jabba's palace, Boba Fett talked to her!  Happy days!
What is your favorite questline and/or place within Star Wars Galaxies and why?  I like working down in the caves on Kashyyyk and also doing the Singing Mountain Clan questline.  Lots of stuff to do and keeps me busy.  Also, I really like the fishing tourneys arranged by staff members - nothing to see here, just a group of people standing around in or near the water waving a fishing rod around  lol

  Friday Feature: Galactic Civil War Options
Posted by: Chavex - 04-01-2021, 11:06 PM - Forum: Community News - No Replies

[Image: klIZiH4.png]

Hello Prophecy!


It’s been a while since we’ve had our last Friday Feature, so we’re coming in hot with one of the cores of our beloved game: the Galactic Civil War, or GCW. From private to general, there’s one way or another to get there for everybody (and reap the rewards along the way)!

Been eyeing that Windu’s Guile crystal for your lightsaber? Wanna snag a command BARC speeder to ride around in style? Or how about a factional suit of armor exclusive to either the Alliance or the Empire? Taking part in GCW activities in-game is the way to go.

Now if you’re rebel, you might say, “But the might of the Empire is too strong! I’m no good at PvP!” Or if you’re imperial, it’ll be something like, “But I shoot worse than a stormtrooper when it comes to murdering filthy rebel players!” Well, relax. PvP is only one aspect of GCW here in SWG. There are many ways to rack up those GCW points, a lot of which don’t involve PvP at all. Interested? Read on to find out more!

First, some basics. When you choose a faction in-game for your character, you’ll start out as a private. As you accrue more and more GCW points, you’ll be promoted up through the ranks (one rank per week) until you’re finally a general. There are 12 ranks in total for both factions. Along the way, new rewards will be unlocked for purchase with each new rank you acquire.

The first six ranks for rebels and imperials are the enlisted ranks. For rebels, these ranks are private, trooper, high trooper, sergeant, senior sergeant, and sergeant major. The enlisted ranks for imperials are private, lance corporal, corporal, sergeant, master sergeant, and sergeant major.

The second six ranks for rebels are the officer ranks. For rebels, these are ranks are lieutenant, captain, major, commander, colonel, and finally the rank of general. For imperials, they are lieutenant, captain, major, lt. colonel, and finally general. Depending on how hard you grind out those GCW points, it may be possible to advance more than one enlisted rank in a single week.

Why are these 12 ranks for each faction split up like this? Aren’t they just a straight shot, you get your points each week, and wait for the weekly GCW timer to rank you up? Yes and no. The enlisted ranks are easy. Yes, you get enough GCW points to rank up each week and wait for the server’s GCW timer to pop you up a rank.

The officer ranks are different. They still work the same way in terms of ranking up. The difference between these and the enlisted ranks though, is that you have to maintain. The officer ranks for both factions decay, meaning you can lose ranks if you don’t continue to acquire the minimum number of GCW points required to hold your rank. It’s only possible to advance a single officer rank per week, but there’s an awesome caveat: decay has been reduced on Prophecy, meaning depending on your enlisted rank, you won’t lose it at as drastic a rate as you would have back on Live. You may even be able to go a few weeks without losing your rank!

So now that you know how GCW works and how to rank up, what are the various ways you can acquire GCW points each week? They are:

-Terminal Missions
-Invasions
-Space Battles
-PvP

Terminal Missions are just what they sound like. You pick up mission from a factional terminal, head out to the way point it gives you, and annihilate all the NPCs and then the banner. Press V in-game to bring up your map, then expand the “Terminal” category, and look for either Imperial or Rebel Mission Terminals.

Invasions are a little more involved, but also more exciting. In a city invasion, one faction will defend the city, while the other attacks it. An invasion is broken up into two phases. The first phase is all about fortifying your defenses if you’re defending or building up your forces if you’re attacking. You’ll get 30 minutes in the beginning for phase one to prepare for the battle. During this phase, there are specific missions that traders and entertainers can accept too, so there’s a way to participate for all professions. Traders are required to make the components needed to for the defending faction to make fortifications and for the attacking faction to build up their forces.

Then comes phase two which is the assault. The attacking force attempts to destroy all of the opposing faction’s presence in the city, while the defending force attempts to repel the attackers. Check out this link for a more specific breakdown of what all is baked into an invasion.

The third and most GCW point-rewarding activity to further one’s standing in GCW is space battles, or GCW2. In a space battle, you man your ship and take to space to attempt to destroy as many enemy ships as possible. The sight of a space battle is a spectacle to behold. When you arrive you’ll see two large frigates, one belonging to each faction, doing battle. Swarming all around the frigates will be countless rebel and imperial fighters also going at it with each other.

The object of a space battle is to destroy the opposing faction’s frigate. To find out where space battles may be taking place, check out this link to get a macro that’ll track ‘em down for ya. To ensure you get credit for a space battle and thus your GCW points, you need to get a hit on the opposing faction’s frigate. The best and easiest way to go about this is to get your friends (or alts) and man a POB or a gunship. A word of warning though: if you use a POB, only four of the total number of players aboard the ship will get credit for the battle.

The fourth and final way to accrue GCW points in SWG is good old-fashioned PvP. You know what to do for this one. Get buffed up to the teeth and go to Restuss on Rori to throw a beatdown to as many opposite-factioned players as you can.

So there you have it. There are multiple ways to further your standing and rank with either the Rebel Alliance or the Empire. Now you can’t say you didn’t know. Check back for more Friday Features coming soon!
