As players progress through the game, a global Leaderboard system will separate them into seven tiers, based on ranking points gained through each battle. Gaining the high score in games will reward players with powerful card packs on a bi-weekly basis (the higher the rank, the more legendary the cards).

Star Wars: Force Arena also has a guild system, which allows up to 50 players to form powerful teams and chat with friends in-game. This system becomes available to all players as they reach level 3. Players in guilds will be able to play in practice matches with their guild-mates, in order to share rewards from their victories.

"To celebrate the global launch of the game, Netmarble will host a global check-in event from launch on Jan. 12 until Jan. 20, 2017. Players checking in daily during the event will receive crystals (in-game currency), leader cards, and gold card packs to strengthen their decks. Premium booster packs, which shorten the time limit on opening reward card packs, will also be given out during this exciting launch event. Returning users can expect regular live updates with new content, characters, and units."

More from Dork Side of the Force

I have been playing Star Wars: Force Arena for close to a month, now, and I can personally attest to the absolute blast this game is. Having played several other Star Wars mobile games, I feel comfortable saying this is the best real-time PVP Star Wars mobile game available. This game is definitely worth downloading and playing.
