I used to play this game on Windows phone and Win PC, so quite a while ago. IIRC, I made it to level 7 or 8 back then. Think I stopped playing when the droideka was added.
Returning to the game, I need help deciding what faction I should pick. Used to be Empire last time. What is the state of the game? Are the factions well balanced? Any insights into how both are played? I'd like to be rather competitive but have fun, as well. I also read something about mini bases, but I honestly prefer developing and raiding - it feels to me like I'm actually playing the game in a competitive manner.
I'd like arguments supporting claims for which faction to choose, not just preferences.

I also remember the E-ATAT was the best hero back then - for empire, at least, due to how it took out the shields. Does this still hold true? Are other heroes - such as vader - worth it? How about rebel heroes?

maslyna882 - Welcome to the Forum!
To expand on what ObiWanKenobi2016 stated above the phrase "Developer Base" means a "cloned Real Play Base" which does not have Squad Center Units and Armory Equipment "Activated". The only defense Developer Bases have are Turrets, Traps, Droideka Sentinel, and Droideka Oppressors.
One MAJOR Addition was the introduction of Data Fragments which are used to Upgrade both Units and Armory Equipment.
Another MAJOR Addition was the Armory (Unlocked at HQ 6) which allows certain Units and Structures to get Buffs in both Health and Damage. One key Armory Equipment was also the introduction of Guard Reserve which allows the "spawning" of Units like Dewbacks or Snipers on a periodic bases. These Guard Reserve Units can sometimes also be "Enhanced" by use of another piece of Armory Equipment (Skin), like Snipers being skinned to become Rodan Recon Snipers.
Another MAJOR Addition was the introduction of SWC Events (as is currently going on) which if you are able to get the Bonus Elite Crates can help in obtaining Data Fragments for both Units and Armory Equipment. HQ 5, HQ 7, and HQ 8 all have the easiest Event Point (EP) Requirements and are strongly recommended you remain at HQ 8 or Lower and grind for Data Fragments.
RECOMMEND VIEWING: I would visit the SWC Wiki which has all the latest Unit, Armory Equipment, Conflict, and Event Info.
AS FOR WHICH FACTION... Both Factions has their Pros and Cons and while I would recommend Rebel Faction (and a great Squad as shown in my Forum Signature) the final choice is up to you.maslyna882 wrote:Thanks for the reply.

Most Commanders now use Armory Skins to "enhance" Hero Units. For example the Rebels might use Senator Leia Organa Armory Skin (Buffs Leia Hero) while the Empire might use the AT-ACT Armory Skin (Buffs Elite AT-AT Unit). Both of these "buffed Units" spawn additional Units.
View This Topic for some information on that Armory Equipment.
