Fighting alone against the Empire or the Rebels – depending on the side you choose – will get old eventually and you will need some human interaction. This means that you will have to join a squad aka alliance in Star Wars: Commander. However, finding a good one is the trickiest part of the game and I am here to help you find a great squad to join in Star Wars: Commander.
Obviously, if you already know the name of the squad you want to join, it’s all easier: simply tap the “Squad” button in the lower right area of the screen, tap the “Search” button and search for the desired alliance’s name. Easy as pie!
However, most of the times, you will not know the name of the alliance that you want to join, in which case you will have to do a little bit of digging. After tapping the “Squad” button, you will be taken to the “Featured” alliance screen. In other words, you will get to the alliances that the game believes are best suited for you, based on your level and faction.
Each alliance listed there has some numbers near their names: the top one represents the rank of the squad in the world (however, 19852 will show as 1985 as there are too many numbers to be displayed) , the middle number represents the number of people in the alliance and the bottom number, the battle score of the alliance.
What matters the most? In my opinion, you should start with the number of people in the Squad: the more, the better. Then, go for the highest battle score as that usually indicates that the members are active.
However, the most important element is the number of troops donated by the squad members. In order to see them, you will have to tap the arrow next to the name of the alliance and hit the “info” button: this will show you how many troops each member of the alliance has donated, as well as more details about the members. The more active the members are, the better the alliance is for you. In other words, if you see a lot of zeros or too many people with way more troops received than donated, that’s not a good alliance to join.
When you eventually find the right one (and it might take some time), join it and make sure you are a great squad member: say hello, introduce yourself and start helping others. It’s usually not a good sign to join an alliance, say nothing and just ask for troops.
It will probably take you a few tries before you manage to find a good alliance to join and our blog might be able to help you with that even more. So if you know of a solid alliance or you’re planning to create one, let people know by sharing the stats and name in the comment section below.
