A new campaign has been launched in Star Wars Commander, Escalation on Dandoran. Unfortunately, I was away from this great game to cover the new campaign over the weekend so I am bit behind with the progress, so I have decided to go for a different approach and create an article with general Escalation on Dandoran guides and discussions, to help all those who need an extra hand with the new campaign missions.
From what I’ve seen this far, the Escalation on Dandoran missions are a bit more difficult than the ones in the first campaign, which makes a lot of sense. They should be somehow tweaked so that new players won’t find it impossible to take part in these campaigns. But until then, let’s talk strategy!
I personally believe that you really need your Headquarters upgraded to at least level 5, with maxed out troops in order to stand a chance. If you don’t have a strong enough army, follow these simple rules to stand a chance at winning the rewards:
– attack the bases for the win and don’t replay for the three star rating. More points are rewarded in new missions, so you’re wasting resources, time and troops on less troop gains.
– go for the HQ building – if you destroy it, you have the first star guaranteed, which is exactly what you need to keep on going with your missions. Never get back to old missions, always go forward all the way to the end and replay the final mission over and over again for the point gains. You get more with this strategy that focusing on getting three stars on all missions, especially the low reward ones.
– join a strong, active squad. You will most likely need the extra troops in defense for the defense missions, so being in an active alliance is a must.
Now let’s talk more in depth strategy below in the comment section. I am working hard to catch up on the missions, but being away for two days really put me well behind with the Star Wars Escalation on Dandoran missions, so right now it’s up to you to help each other find the best working strategies and make it work.
May the Force be with you. And hopefully, you won’t get stuck at a mission before the last one of the campaign!
