NEW CHARACTERS
This month Kylo Ren is unmasked! This release includes his ship, the TIE silencer, the First Order Special Forces TIE Pilot and his ship, the First Order Special Forces TIE fighter. These units are perfect for crushing the Resistance!
Kylo Ren (Unmasked) gives the First Order a survivable Tank whose ability, HALT, can Stun his opponents for 2 turns. SCARRED increases his survivability by reducing how much percent Health damage he takes and let him recover Health and Protection. Finally, his Leader ability, MERCILESS PURSUIT, gives First Order Increased Speed, Critical Damage, and Turn Meter gain on Critical Hits.
His ship, the TIE silencer, is a ruthless attacker with the ability to Stun opponents who have 50% Turn Meter, or more. Additionally, this ship will gain stacks of Speed and Offense Up when damaging, or is damaged by, ships who have Target Lock.
The First Order SF TIE Pilot is an AoE attacker who inflicts Defense Down, gains Advantage, and focuses on disrupting opponents. His ship, the First Order SF TIE fighter, now brings consistent Target Lock for the First Order and, like its pilot, a significant source of AoE damage.
Kylo Ren (Unmasked) and the TIE silencer become the backbone of your First Order squad, while the First Order SF TIE Pilot and his TIE fighter bring more options to the First Order.
For more in depth details on these new additions, please see their respective kits posted in the Arena and Character Strategy section of the forums via the handy dandy links below

CHARACTER UPDATES
The new ability description for Kylo Ren's "Lash Out" is as follows:

Lash Out
Deal Physical damage to all enemies and gain Retribution for 2 turns. This attack can't Critically Hit and deals bonus damage equal to 50% of Kylo Ren's Critical Damage. First Order allies and allies with Advantage gain 25% Turn Meter.

With the introduction of the Kylo Ren (Unmasked), we needed to update Kylo Ren's Special ability "Lash Out" to prevent an exploitative strategy.

After much discussion between Design and the Game Balance team, our solution is to make "Lash Out" unable to score Critical Hits, but gain bonus damage based on Kylo Ren's Critical Damage. This way, Kylo Ren will still be able to benefit from Kylo Ren (Unmasked)'s leader ability and bypass any enemy effects that trigger on a Critical Hit, such as General Kenobi's "Soresu" and Barriss' Zeta Upgrade on her passive ability "Swift Recovery".

  • Oh no my Zylo.... What have you done to my Zylo
  • Does the shard shuffle mean that none of the new characters are working their way into shops/nodes? Or that they are thinking about changing what characters are available in different shops?
  • Aww only 25's on the bundle? Couldn't make it 40?

    Qui gon gin
  • The "and make mine a double" quote is right on the tip of my tongue. When I googled it, it just brings up some old movie (not related). I feel like I heard it in either Ep. 2 or 3..

    Really ?
    Where was this on the schedule released in Oct? Did someone just forget this major release? Weirdness.
    Seriously, I read notes from those important people saying they are going to be more clear in communications and we get this?
    Surprise!!

    I am sorry, but this is way too cheeky, the way these people communicate and release stuff.
    It is seriously one of the most negative aspects of it's evolution.
    Please lose the cheekiness and trying to be coy and sly, because it doesn't define professionalism or deliver a "good feeling" towards players.

    It basically says, we do this stuff to frustrate you because we know it does...send us some more money or you cant compete...

    You should also announce when you are going to SPOIL the new movie. Really disrespectful to fans.


  • I think the double reference is just double drops :-)

    I've thrown it out on Reddit, I'm fairly sure Hondo Ohnaka is the one who says this. Can't think of when or where, but it was the first thing to come to mind.

    I think you're right! That's why it seemed so fresh literally just watched it on rebels yesterday, that's why I thought ep.2, the clones(also watching that series as well lol)

    They never put new events on the calendar when they do the initial update at the end of the previous month. Those are added as they are announced. Not sure where all the vitriol is coming from.
  • Mike Mine A Double was a film from the late 50's about a British Spy who teams up with a pilot to infiltrate and spy on the Germans behind enemy lines. I'm not sure if there is a clue in there somewhere.
  • I got it! "Prepare for trouble, and make it double". Team rocket confirmed
  • Doesn't Nico Okarr also frequently say "Make mine a double"...?

    But my Pikachu isn't 5 stars, I won't be able to get Mewtwo!
    "Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen...mostly"
  • Make mine a double! I’ve wanted the bespin cloud car ship for awhile! Please be it! But yeah, it’s probably double drops for the anny!
  • The What's Next is Hondo. It's what he says to Kenobi I believe when he takes him to the bar.

    This post so well encapsulates this forum.

    Also I'll buy into the double drops theory. Maybe even Hondo as a powerful Scoundrel leader.

    We're sure Han Solo never says it in a cantina?

    hmmm double drops or perhaps we'll see two journey events in December - one for Rey and CLS
  • Make Mine a Double is also a ww2 movie. Also known as The Night We Dropped a Clanger.

    Hrm.
    Meanwhile, down on the farm....

    I don't mind Hondo in the game at all. Just seems like odd timing.

    or may be both, double drops and double journeys
