  • Purpose​

    The purpose of entering the GCW is to show support for the Galactic Empire or Rebellion, to earn ranks in those factions, to achieve planetary control and server dominance, to affect spawns in the game, to earn experience and rewards, and to have fun!

    There are two forms of this either PvE or PvP. Most believe the end goal for achieving rank is to PvP. On restoration the Temporary Enemy Flag (TEF) is not automatic for killing a factionally aligned NPC. Therefore, PvP is not forced.

    Joining a Faction​

    To join a faction, you need to speak to a Rebel Recruiter/Imperial Recruiter or Rebel Pilot Trainer/Imperial Pilot Trainer. You can also support either side as a neutral player.

    Service Status​


    This is a non-pvp factional status. It allows you to attack or be attacked by factional NPCs of the opposing faction.

    Special Forces​

    This is a PvP factional status. This allows you to attack or be attacked by both factional NPCs and factionally aligned PvP'ers.


    This is a covert status. You will not be attacked by either factionally aligned NPCs or Players. You may be prevented from entering certain factionally aligned locations.

    Changing Status​

    To escalate your status:​

    It takes 30 seconds to escalate from leave to combatant and combatant to special forces.

    To deescalate your status:​

    Use the same /pvp command to drop from special forces to combatant. It takes 5 minutes to become combatant from special forces. You can only go on leave by visiting a factional recruiter and requesting leave.

    GCW User Interface​


    GCW Terminal​

    These terminals are found during city invasions, for attackers they are located in the camps which spawn just outside of the city. For defenders they can be found near to where the General NPC spawns.

    Bases and the GCW​

    GCW Static Bases​

    In the July Game Update (Aug 8, 2022) , GCW Static Bases had been Added.
    • Static bases have returned. Fight in PvP to hold important bases with unique rewards:
      • Weapons Development Facility (Naboo at /way 936 -1582)
        • Military Weapon Speed Enhancements
        • Military Weapon Accuracy Enhancements
        • Military Weapon Damage Booster Packs
        • Military Weapon Critical Hit Booster Packs
        • GCW Rally Banner
      • Tactical Training Facility (Corellia at /way 4772 -5233)
        • Military Stimpacks
        • Military Adrenaline Injections
        • Military Pain Numbing Powders
        • Military Might Enhancements
        • Military Positional Recovery Injection
      • Industrial Research Center (Talus at /way -4899 -3137)
        • Industrious Opportunity Inspiration Injection
        • Crafting Innovation Injectable
        • Experimental Experimentation Enhancement
        • Creature Incubation Inoculation
        • Expeditious Social Acclimation Enhancement
    • Capture bases by interacting with each of four terminals on the base without interruption for 30 seconds.
    • The longer you hold the base, up to 4 days, the more powerful the supplies that arrive (each buff available from the logistics officers inside increases in potency and power).
    • Check with the logistics officer to see what is available for purchase, the status of the base (up to phase 5), and the duration before the next phase.
    • Static base attacks are announced in the new #gcw-activity channel on Discord.
      • When the server starts from a fresh restart, all terminals are unclaimed.
      • When you attempt to capture an unclaimed terminal, it will become contested, and the factional logo will appear red. When a terminal is contested, you have 25 minutes for as many players as possible representing your faction to interact with the terminal. At the end of the 25-minute period, the faction with the most points wins control of the terminal. If there is a tie or no points, the faction with existing control wins the terminal (except if the previous phase was unclaimed, in which case the faction of the player who initiated the contested period will win the terminal). The terminal becomes controlled when the contested period ends, and the factional logo appears blue.
      • If you attempt to capture a controlled terminal, the terminal will become vulnerable for 5 minutes, and the factional logo will appear orange. During these 5 minutes, you must have five players from your faction (who must be from separate accounts) interact with the terminal. A Smuggler can attempt to slice the terminal to reduce the requirement to 4 players. When the 5-minute vulnerability period has ended, if the required number of players have interacted with the terminal, the terminal will become contested and eligible for capture for 25 minutes following the procedure described above. If the 5-minute period ends without the required number of players interacting with the terminal, the terminal will return to controlled status.
      • When you interact with a contested terminal, a terminal fatigue debuff will apply for 5 minutes, and you will be unable to interact with any terminals for the duration of the debuff.
      • When a terminal leaves a contested status, it will enter a cool-down period for 1 hour, during which the terminal may not be attacked (i.e., it will be unable to go from controlled to vulnerable).
      • All players that interact with a contested terminal and who win at the end of the contested period (i.e., they either maintain control for their faction in Defense or claim control for their faction in attack) will earn 10 GCW Tokens and 1,000 GCW Points (per terminal).
      • Discord Announcements will be made when a terminal becomes contested, when the contested period ends, and when a factional base has changed control (where all terminals have controlled status for a single faction).

    Bonus GCW is awarded in Combat static area.

    PvE Player Bases​

    PvE player bases are currently unobtainable/placeable since update 1.1.

    PvP Player Bases: Overview​

    • There are 4 types of PvP base and these vary in size:
      • Forward Outpost
      • Field Hospital
      • Tactical Centre
      • Detachment HQ
    • They are placeable by any faction player
    • Can only be entered by Special Forces Players
    • Players can place mines and turrets to support base defence
    • If enemy SF players are in range of the base any destroyed turrets of mines cannot be replaced
    • Defended internally by NPC elite guards
    • Has a 3-hour vulnerability window which can be set by the base owner
    • Vulnerable bases are indicated on the planetary map with a sun symbol
    • Invulnerable bases are indicated on the planetary map with a moon symbol
    • Vulnerable/invulnerable bases are also announced in the #gcw-activity discord channel
    • Supports GCW control by locking out the contested region and preventing the opposing faction altering the score in that region until the base is destroyed
    • Purchased from Faction Recruiters
    • Players can place 1 base per character in any contested or uncontested region on the following Planets:
      • Corellia
      • Talus
      • Naboo
      • Rori
      • Dantooine
      • Lok
      • Tatooine
    • Bases also help to maintain Commissioned Officer Ranks. Earning GCW Points in the vicinity of a Base will yield a bonus to awards.
      • SF Forward Outpost - 2%, 750m
      • Field Hospital - 3%, 1000m
      • SF Field Hospital - 5%, 1000m

      • Detachment Headquarters - 10%, 1500m
      • SF Detachment Headquarters - 12%, 1500m

    PvP Bases: Base Busting​

    Player placed bases enable players to lock GCW contested regions which prevents them from falling to the enemy. They also enable commissioned officers to advance in rank and it's for that reason placing and destroying PvP bases or "Base Busting" as it's known is an integral part of the GCW.

    To effectively destroy a base, you will need to slice several terminals found inside the structure. These terminals only appear during the base vulnerability window, are randomly placed throughout the structure and require specific Professions.


    The following instructions will guide you through the base destruction sequence.

    1. Jam the Uplink Terminal - (Bounty Hunter Investigation II)​
    This terminal has a mini game wherein the Bounty Hunter must guess the uplink signal. This is basically guessing a number between 1 and 10. Throughout you will receive messages advising if the number is higher or lower than selected frequency.​
    2. Slice the Security Terminal - (Smuggler Slicing I)​
    There is no mini game for this terminal, the Smuggler simply has to select the radial menu from terminal in order to slice it.​
    3. DNA Sequence Override Terminal - (Novice Doctor)​
    This mini game can be complex and requires you to match the DNA markers within a randomised control sequence (these are displayed in letter form). There are around 23 letters to match and you will need to remember that A and T are paired as are C and G. Select the letters in from the list until you complete the match. When matches are paired they appear in green.​
    It is possible to blindly click your way through this mini-game, however you risk making time an ally of the rebellion!
    4. Power Regulator Terminal - (Novice Commando)​
    There is no mini game for this terminal, the Commando simply has to radial select the terminal to realign the Power Regulator.​
    5. Overload the HQ Terminal - (Novice Squad Leader)​
    There is no mini game for this terminal, once the Squad Leader uses the radial menu the 10-minute shutdown timer will commence.​
    You will need to remain vigilant as enemy Special Forces players can stop the countdown sequence, if they succeed you will need to slice all of the terminals again.

    Successfully destroying a base awards between 250-1000 GCW and 100,000 - 400,000 credits depending on the size of the base.
