I have received a few e-mails from people asking me how to change factions in Star Wars Commander, so I’ve decided to write this article and share with you everything you know about changing your faction in the game and how to play as bot the Empire and the Rebels.
Unfortunately, I have to start with some bad news: in order to change factions in Star Wars: Commander, you have to start over. The only method to change your side comes by uninstalling the game from your device, then installing it again and starting afresh. So you will lose all your progress, which kind of sucks and this is the number one reason why people stick with the alliance they have initially chosen.
However, there is a little trick that you can try to play your game as both the rebels and the alliance. First of all and the obvious method is if you have two iOS powered devices: you simply install the game on both devices and play with a different faction on each.
If that’s not an option, though, you can still try a trick: connect your game with your Facebook account, then uninstall it. Reinstall the game, start with the other faction and connect the game with a different Facebook account. From now on, simply switch from one Facebook account to the other and you can switch from playing the Rebels or the Empire.
Sorry there’s not an easy way to do this!
