In this section of our Force Arena guide, we’re going to look at a question that pops up quite often - is it best to play as the Light Side or the Dark Side of the Force?
The answer is one that might just surprise you, but we’ll get to that in a minute. First make sure you’ve read the first two parts of our guide to ensure that you’re up to date with everything you need to know up to this point.
I’m gonna presume at this point that you’ve read those, and now I’m going to jump in with the shocking truth - it kinda doesn’t matter which side you choose. In fact, picking one is going to hinder you.
Which side are you on?
There are pros and cons of playing both sides in the game, but the important thing to remember is that the XP you earn from each of your decks goes to your profile, not just to your hero characters.
You earn XP by levelling up your cards, which means when you open card packs with cards for decks you’re not using, it’s worth upgrading them so that your level is constantly on the rise.
The one thing you need to do is make sure you have multiple different styles of deck on the go, regardless of the side of the Force they’re aligned to. That way if you’re taking a beating with one deck you can swap out and try another.
The units are all pretty similar on each side, but sometimes you’ll get more powerful cards when you open new packs, and you should be flexible about which of your deck’s you’re going to use.
Another thing to consider is the hero character you’ve got equipped for each deck. These will effect your play choices. Different characters move at different speeds, and have different special moves. Try them out to find which ones work for you.
The key to prolonged success in Force Arena is making sure that you’ve got decks for every situation, and ensuring that you understand what your heroes do. That way you’ll never be taken by surprise.
