Grand Arena Championships

From SWGoH Help Wiki
Grand Arena.jpg

Grand Arena Championships is the latest version of Grand Arena. It first launched on June 25, 2019. Grand Arena Championships took the place of the previous version, Grand Arena. Grand Arena is a mode that was added to SWGoH with the Title Update 14 on Dec 4, 2018. It is similar to Territory War but instead of the guild, it pits two players against each other in a battle for dominance.

Requirements

You must be level 85 to participate in the Grand Arena.

Phases

Preview Phase

Each Grand Arena event will have 1 preview phase. This allows a user to join the Grand Arena and locks in the GP and mods.

Defense Phase

During this phase you will set your defensive teams. The number of defensive squads/fleets scales based on the GP of the lowest player in the group. The total number of defensive squads can change per Grand Arena event. It's important to note, the Grand Arena interface only shows 2 teams per sector. It's possible though, that a sector requires more than 2 teams. This has caused a lot of people to not play all of their defensive teams.

Attack Phase

During this phase you will be able to attack your opponents defenses.

Review Phase

This phase allows you to review the Grand Arena event.

Matchmaking

Players are placed into a group of 8 opponents that have similar collections so that all players have fun and challenging fights throughout the entire Grand Arena. Once players are in a group, matchmaking pairs players with a similar number of wins rising the highest skill players to the top of the group.

  • Matchmaking avoids players that have already fought whenever possible.
  • Grouping Edge Cases: In the instance that the number of participating players is not divisible by 8, we create 8 person groups starting with the strongest collections to the weakest collections. The final two groups are then split such that both groups have 4 or more players. For example, if there are 9 players between the final 2 groups, they will have 5 and 4 players respectively.
  • Byes: In the instance of an odd number of players in a group, one player will receive a bye each round. Matchmaking continues to try to match players based on wins, but that will not always be possible.

Once matchmaking has completed, each player's GP and characters are locked in for the entire rest of the Grand Arena matchups. This means that further improvements to units including changing Mods will not affect the Grand Arena event for any of the rounds.

Schedule

Each Grand Arena event is a week-long event that consists of a series of 3 rounds against different opponents. There are eight 24 hour phases: Preview, Set Defense (Opponent 1), Attack (Opponent 1), Set Defense (Opponent 2), Attack (Opponent 2), Set Defense (Opponent 3), Attack (Opponent 3), Review

Earning Banners

Similar to Territory Wars, banners are earned for setting defenses, successful attacks, and conquering a territory.

Strategy

Always set defense, first of all. Good defensive teams would be KRU, Revan, Bastila, Nightsisters, and several other teams. Try to save CLS and Nightmare for offense, and if there is an easy team, don't underestimate it, but use an undersized team for more banners and try to get some of the grand arena awards. If your main fleet is Thrawn or Ackbar, save it and put Tarkin on defense with your backup team and put your main team on offense. The AI does not know how to use Thrawn or Ackbar properly.

Rankings

Grand Arena uses the Swiss-system tournament where each competitor does not play every other. Grand Arena is current set up so each event has 1 winner. Three people tie for 2nd rewards. Three people tie for 3rd rewards. One person for 4th.

Rounds are broken down as follows:

  • First round 4 people get 1, remaining 4 get 0
  • The 1s get matched with the 1s, and the 0's matched with 0's
  • After the second round you have 2 with 2, 4 with 1, and 2 with 0
  • The 2's get matched together, the 0's get matched, and the 1's get matched
  • In the end you will have 1 with 3, 3 with 2, 3 with 1, and 1 with 0

Tie Breakers

In the rare occasion of the event ending with tied banners, the player with the higher GP will win. In the extremely rare chance of equal Banners and equal GP, a random player wins.[1]

If two players tie in Grand Arena with the exact same amount of Banners at the end of a round then Galactic Power will be used to resolve the tie. The Galactic Power of both players is captured at the time of matchmaking and does not update at the end of a battle. This means at the end of an event both player's GP may have changed and will not be representative of who would win in a tie.[2]

Formats

This map shows a Grand Arena match with 2 territories active. If this were a 4 territory map, the center lines would also be illuminated.

Grand Arena can run in different formats for each event. It's important to notice the format before starting.

The number of active territories on the map can change from 2 to 4. When four territories are active, the back territory isn't visible until the territory in front of it is defeated. During the preview phase it can be hard to see how many territories are active. The easiest way to tell is to look at the territory borders to see which ones are solid.

5v5

This format is similar to TW and has ran with and without ships.

3v3

This format first ran on Dec 21st, 2018 without ships. It is the first time the game has ever had 3v3.

Fleets

A fleet zone was introduced on 04/06/2020 with Season 6: Pilots. This zone initially required setting one defensive fleet. On 09/28/2020 with the start of Season 11: Nightsisters, the requirements were expanded to 2 defensive fleets for Divisions 1 and 2.

Seasons

Prior to full 4 week Grand Arena Championships, CG ran two Exhibitions to test the event. a 1 week phase and 5 week phase. The first Exhibition launched on 06/20/2019 was canceled on 06/22/2019 and restarted on 06/24/2019 after technical issues, it ran for 1 week. The second Exhibition ran for 5 weeks and started on 07/02/2019.

The first Grand Arena Championship launched 08/19/2019 with a myriad of technical issues. It was shut down that day and relaunched on 08/26/2019.

CG didn't start referring to "seasons" until Season 3. Before that, they were just referred to as Grand Arena Championship 1, 2, etc. There is a bit of discrepancy, as Season 3 was technically the 4th GAC season. The first GAC on 08/26/2019 is named here as Season 0. Seasons 0 and 1 had feats loosely based on characters from the Clone Wars. Seasons 2 and on took a much more thematic approach to feats, either following a faction (such as Sith or Nightsisters) or an event (such as feats centered around Ep. V: The Empire Strikes Back).
