Why I Quit Galaxy of Heroes

This post is a guest post from John Lynch.

I downloaded SW: Galaxy of Heroes mid-December, about a month after it launched. Perusing the list of Star Wars apps, I saw that it was fairly new and decided to try it out. I quite enjoyed it for a while, playing for many hours a day (my battery usage by app was embarrassingly skewed). The further I progressed in the game, the more time I invested. Then, at the end of July, I quit.
