How to Reroll in Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes
What is Rerolling?
Rerolling is starting a new account on a game, in this case Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes, several times to participate in a random lottery or gacha to get gear/items/characters that would normally take a large investment in sheer time or currency. Players reroll for various reasons. By rerolling new accounts you are able to restart until you begin with vastly stronger characters/items/gear than you would get the majority of the time you start the game and this allows you to play whatever game from the beginning on with an "advantage".
Some games may frown upon or discourage active attempts at rerolling. However, rerolling is a common practice among "freemium" or F2P apps. As of this last update there has been no punishments or warnings handed out by EA on this matter. Until I hear otherwise this is considered completely safe to do.
Do I need to or should I Reroll?
That is entirely up to you. The odds of getting the rarer unique characters is rather low. You will also lose any progress on your current account unless you continue to play both. However, Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes is a hero gathering/team building game. Starting with the right character or having better synergy in your parties can make a huge difference in completing challenges and missions. If you are the type of player who only likes to have the best characters or have a tendency to drop a chunk of cash on gacha/lotto chances to get certain heroes then rerolling can save you a pretty penny on your initial start. If you had a bunch of bad luck on your pulls it would also to be something to consider. The most important thing is that you are enjoying the game. Play in a way that ensures that it's enjoyable. There are no guarantees that you'll be able to get a good reroll quickly so settle in if you go for it.
What Characters do I want?
That is entirely up to you! If you are just looking for a powerhouse for PvP try to get one of the 80 shard cost characters. Generally any 4* is a great start and you can't go wrong from there. If you really want Han Solo or Lando then by all means roll for them. This method should just be used as a shortcut for your enjoyment of the game.
I just want to PvP. Can't you tell me?
Ok, Ok. Anakin Skywalker, Obi Wan Kenobi, Darth Sidious, Darth Maul, Barriss Offee would all be great characters to start with on the ladder. They have strong techniques and will have good synergy with any future purchases as well as allowing you to complete a lot of story content. Happy Hunting!
I don't want to Pvp. Can you tell me?
Uh, how about URoRRuR'R'R. Tuskens know best. Personal preference would be king here. I would probably err on the side of a healer since that will allow you take on a lot of the harder missions earlier. Characters with stuns and utility are also very useful. There is an endurance mode at level 40 that will use all of the characters you own so don't worry if you get someone "useless" later on.
Ok. I Want to Reroll, but How?
Rerolling in Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes is pretty simple. All it requires is a couple Google Play accounts plus some time and patience. You are able to use an existing account on Galaxy on Heroes if you just want the Samsung Data Pack. There is no guarantee how long rerolling on this game will take unfortunately. The odds of getting a 4* character can be as low as 2%. I have listed the fastest and easiest reroll method that I know of currently without manipulating any game files. If someone knows what to delete or how to reset the guest account please post below!
I had to reroll 10 times to get my 4* which was 30 pulls from the Data Cards store. Players can also very rarely get 3*+ from the Bronzium Data Card so make sure to use every pull possible on each account before trying again.

If you are getting an error message that says "hardware not supported by this application" try downloading all of the Google Play Files. Google Services, Google Game Manager, Google Play store, etc. If you can sign into any game using Google Play on Bluestacks then Galaxy of Heroes should run also.
