The Trivia Grand Tour is back for Season Four, many thanks to the four players that have already completed Week One. If you’re not one of those four, head over to http://tc.emperorshammer.org/timetest.php?testid=119875 to participate.

MOBILE GAME CORNER

I just happened to have a couple of things to share about mobile games this time around, so here’s a special section for those.

I’d been using QEMU to emulate Android in Windows to give me a comfortable alternative to playing Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes on my phone, but my favorite Galaxy of Heroes YouTuber recently posted a video about his setup in BlueStacks that I tried out and found to be pretty great. Check out AhnaldT101’s video about BlueStacks here. I’d previously discouraged folks from using BlueStacks for Star Wars Uprising because the developer was against having the game run in emulation because it gave the player an unfair advantage (or so they said), but the developer for Galaxy of Heroes doesn’t share that concern.

If you spend much time on forums for mobile games like Galaxy of Heroes, you’ll see posts from “whales” that spend lots of money on mobile games. I wouldn’t presume to tell anyone what to do with their money, but if you spend money on microtransactions, please do so responsibly and remember that if the game’s not fun for you when you’re playing without making any transactions, spending money on it probably won’t change that.

REMINDERS

With increasing information coming out about Episode IX, we’re trying to avoid posting any potential spoilers to the mailing list and general comm channels so that folks who want to go into the movie with a blank slate can do that. If you’d like to join the spoiler chat group in Telegram where we’re sharing anything we’ve found, let me know.

If you complete a new Imperial University course, you'll notice that your EH database profile gets updated automatically but not your TC database profile. The latter are updated manually by me and the TCCOM, please give us a day or two after your test is graded for the new course to appear in your TC profile before you email us about it.

We have a weekly MP event with the Rebel Squadrons on Saturdays at 7pm Eastern. Participants meet up on the Neutral Ground server on Discord.
