Wooga on live ops and soft launch, King goes social casino, and why is Jon still playing Galaxy of Heroes?

Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes is a fine game, and it's little wonder that it still reels in plenty of revenue for EA 21 months after it first launched.

But that does raise the question of who is still playing the game after all this time? And the answer, it appears, is Jon Jordan, who wrote down his thoughts on why he still loves it in our most read article of last week.

Second on our Hot Five is the story that King has officially entered the social casino space, with a slot machine game called Royal House Slots, in partnership with PlayStudios.

Live ops, eSports, and acquisitions

Third up is our interview with Wooga CEO Jens Begemann, in which he talks about the studio's current business focus, and why it's spending so long in soft launch with its current games.

And finally, Wargaming explains why its doubling down on eSports for its mobile game World of Tanks Blitz, and we ask the question on everyone's lips: is Plarium really worth $500 million?
