Star Wars Commander Guide: How to Create a Squad

I have received a lot of e-mails from people asking me how to create a squad in Star Wars Commander and I have decided to address this issue here, in order to help others who are facing the same problem.

Even though joining a squad is extremely easy, and done from the Squad menu, creating your own squad isn’t. So here is what you have to do in order to create your own Squad in Star Wars Commander:

Tap your Squad Center and then select “Upgrade”. From the upgrade menu, if you are not already in a squad, you will have the option to Create a Squad. Tap that button and you can create your own, setting all the requirements, name and description. You also need 10,000 coins to create your squad.

Please have in mind that, as I said, you must not be in a squad already in order to be able to create your own!

If you find it difficult to get new members after creating your squad, check out our Star Wars Commander Squads article where you can promote your squad to others.

    • You can request units from the Squad Center. Once your squadmate requests units, you can donate units to them from the Squad Chat.

  1. I have an empire squad called GhostOfTheEmpire. I am looking for players with at least 700 medals. I know it is a lot, but I want players who can donate troops, and have an HQ level of at least 5. I have over 1300 medals, and donate very often. Want some probe droids on defense? well Ive got those. I know a lot of tactics and strategies for this game, such as attacking strategies, and base layouts, and I can help get your medal count into the thousands. Open to anybody, as long as you have the medals, and are looking for a squad who is willing to donate useful troops! Looking forward to the first members to join!


    First 3 members get promoted automatically

    I’m HQ level 6, and only get attacked by HIGH LEVEL 7’s! Level 6 bases never attack me and win.
    I play everyday, at least 2 times

  12. Hello everyone.

    I recently started playing this game and think it’s great. I decided to go ahead and make a squad, however…
    Whenever I attempt to do so, it says “Invalid squad name” or something similar. I enter “Bristar” for the squad name and change the picture. Didn’t add a description, and didn’t change the medals required and left it to “Open to All”.
    Looking for an explanation to this. Have more than 10,000 credits whenever I go to create it and have tried multiple times.
    Thanks in advance.

    Sincerely, Yuori.

  13. D.H.A.R.M.A. is a super active squad with members from Level 3 to Level 9. Our stats speak for themselves, role play is encouraged and we all donate.
