TERRITORY BATTLE CHANGES
Captain Han Solo Requirement Changes
One of the more commonly reported bugs has to do with the User Interface disappearing from the game during combat, making it impossible to finish a battle. While this occurs in several different parts of the game, it happens most frequently during Territory Battles, and we have isolated one of the causes as Captain Han Solo’s abilities.

Because he has been a required character on the Light Side Territory Battle, and until we are able to fix the root cause of the bug, we are removing Captain Han Solo as a requirement until we are able to fix the larger issue. We will be reinstating him as a requirement at that time.

Rebel Assault 5/21 - 5/26 Rescheduled
We are rescheduling the instance of Rebel Assault on 5/21 - 5/26 to an undetermined date soon. We will provide an update by the end of the week. For more information and updates check out this thread: https://forums.galaxy-of-heroes.starwars.ea.com/discussion/169265/state-of-the-galaxy-5-11-18#latest

TERRITORY WAR FACTION BONUS ABILITIES
New bonus abilities for the upcoming Territory Wars! (These are in addition to existing Territory War Faction Bonuses. Both Bounty Hunter and Scoundrel bonuses will be active during the next Territory War starting on 5/15)

Wetwork: Whenever a Bounty Hunter scores a Critical Hit, they Dispel all debuffs on themselves and gain +15% Critical Damage (stacking) for the rest of the battle.
A Step Ahead: Scoundrels have +20% Critical Chance as long as they have Protection.

SHIP SHARD MIGRATION
The previously mentioned Ship Shard migration, which will only affect a single, outlier ship shard, will take place on Thursday, May 17th.

For players in this shard, an in-game inbox message should arrive with more details. For more information on why this migration is taking place, please refer to the State of the Galaxy - 5/11/18 post.


SHARD SHUFFLE
The following characters are now farmable in the following locations:
Sith Marauder
  • Cantina 6-E
  • Replaces Jedi Consular


KNOWN ISSUES
  • Vandor Chewbacca’s Unique, “Ferocious Protector”, is incorrectly described in languages other than English. We are rushing an updated translation that we will deploy before the character Marquees go live. For now, please reference the English version of the ability kit.
FIXES
  • Updated Darth Traya’s “Bond’s of Weakness” ability description to correctly reflect that the damage is unavoidable. Note: Bond’s of Weakness has worked this way since we released the Sith Triumvirate Raid but the ability description did not mention that the damage was unavoidable. This should not modify the current experience as nothing about the battle is changing. We originally balanced the raid around the damage being unavoidable but we would like to hear your thoughts if you have feedback on the raid balance in regards to this issue or the Sith raid in general here: Sith Triumvirate Raid Feedback
  • Updated Sion’s “Cycle of Pain” ability description to correctly reflect that units can gain Cycle of Pain if they damage Any enemy during a friendly or enemy turn instead of only during the enemy’s turn. Note: Cycle of Pain has also worked this way since we released the Sith Triumvirate Raid but the ability description did not mention that players could receive stacks of pain even if it was their turn. The difficulty of the Raid should remain unchanged. Please click the link above if you have feedback about this change or about the Sith Triumvirate Raid.
Note: We have seen a wide variety of feedback around the Sith Triumvirate Raid and we would like to hear about your experiences with the raid in the discussion thread here: Sith Triumvirate Raid Feedback A quick thank you to everyone who has already sent us some very detailed feedback here or Reddit.
  • Boba Fett's in-battle payout description now matches with the ability description.
  • Updated the level 8 ability text for Boba Fett's "Execute" to match his level 1-7 ability text.
  • Fixed an issue where Raid Darth Nihilus can sometimes incorrectly reduce Annihilate’s cooldown when he uses his basic ability.
  • Darth Nihilus will now correctly recover Health and gain Turn Meter when Darth Traya or Darth Sion is inflicted with a special debuff.
  • Darth Nihilus’s "Drain Force" will now have 100% trigger chance against enemies with Plague.
  • Darth Traya’s "Deceptive Strike" will now correctly inflict Stun on target enemy if there is a Stunned ally.
  • Fixed the following leader abilities so the icon buffs they grant will no longer stack with the same icon buff from other sources:
    • Grandmaster Yoda Leader: Tenacity Up
    • Count Dooku Leader: Offense Up
    • Clone Wars Chewbacca Leader: Defense Up
    • Plo Koon Leader: Offense Up
  • Kylo Ren’s "Lash Out" ability has been fixed to correctly deal bonus damage in the base tier of his ability.
  • [Localization] Fixed the German text for Chief Chirpa's special ability "Ancestral Secrets".
  • [Localization] Fixed a German localization bug for Darth Vader's ability.
  • [Localization] Fixed the Spanish text for Bossk's special ability "Hunting Party".
  • [Localization] Updated several incorrect Spanish strings for the abilities of Asajj Ventress, Visas Marr, Darth Sion and Darth Traya.
  • [Audio] Fixed Dengar's missing sound effects for “Blast & Smash” ability.
  • [Audio] The Cantina level environment should now correctly play battle music in the foreground and Cantina ambient music in the background.
