KNOWN ISSUES
  • We are aware of an issue where the title “Vader’s Fist” is available for players to select even though they have yet to claim the title reward from the achievement. We are investigating how to correct this issue and will keep you updated on our progress.

FIXES
  • The Emperor hologram now displays correctly in CC-2224’s (Cody) hand during his special ability animation.
  • Corrected repetitive wording in Ships 3v3 Launch Bundle description.
  • Fixed an issue with Rebel Roundup Tier 2 & 3 not properly respecting unit star-rarity requirements. Tier 2 now correctly requires 5-Star units, and the Bonus Tier now correctly requires 7-Star units
  • Fixed an issue in Capital Ship Challenges Tier IV where players would receive a “Minimum Unit Requirements” error message despite having all required ships.
  • Multi-Sim for Ship Challenges is no longer available before earning 3-Stars on the new Ship Ability Materials Tier IV Challenge.

SHIPS AI NOTE
"We know there have been some questions around how the AI handles calling in Reinforcements during Ship battles and wanted to shed some light on how it works. Due to the importance of board presence and the new Reinforcement Abilities, the Reinforcement AI will prioritize Fleet survivability first. Then, it checks battlefield conditions to determine if a heal or dispel (ally or enemy) is needed. Finally, offense-oriented ships will be called if the other options are not available. In an instance where more than one ship can fulfill any of the same conditions, it will call the ship in the left-most reinforcement slot first." @CG_CMandellorian


See you on the Holotables!

    Hi,

    The drop rate for 6A is horrendous. I did 20 sims with double drops and got only 2!

    Can the devs clarify if they have set a special drop rate for this? I would not like to use up my double drop opportunity on such a "fixed" node.

    Best regards,
    Cough Cough

    PS: Jar Jar Binks Rules!
  • 1600 cantina energy with double drops netted me a grand total of 22 mats

  • All of that's fine.. EXCEPT the guild activity update. Turned one of the two activities that could be done well with simply some planning (saving as many of the previous day's as possible). Into an activity that either wastes energy build up from the timer by stockpiling, or costs crystals in refreshes.

    I'm pretty sure you don't have to spend a bunch of crystals if you don't want to, just to earn an extra 25 guild currency.
    The CGDF is no more. Now we hate CG because of conquest. Say hi in our Discord! https://discord.gg/AmStGTH

    I'm talking about the guild as a whole. It adds up

    Ok, 125 guild currency. At most, and probably less.

    You haven't even seen the payout structure yet.

    Whats the requirement for the own fleet in the Geo fleet event?

    I am, no joke, 0 for 30 battles. I think the assumption people are making is that the drop rate is 10%, but obviously I'm freaking unlucky....

    360 cantina energy down the drain :(

    @CG_CMandellorian basically it is useless to have Poe in reinforcement because he will probably be called last, and as most battle ends with 1/2 reinforcement, it is useless?

    This is really a questionnable decision, why not let player decide the turn order?

    "Ranks #26 - #50 will now receive a crystal payout. Prepare your fleets for victory!" So no crystals for 21-25? Lol

    IT'S A TRAP! tm*
  • The problem is we have members from all over the world in our guild from various time zones. To better accommodate them we have rotating raid launches. Meaning if Pit launches today at 6:30pm, it will launch at 6:30am the next time we are able. Same goes for HAAT ect ... I love the new setup, but please, more options like specific days of the week as soon as tickets are available and alternating AM and PM launches would be ideal.
  • I see your point, but can you imagine how complicated that interface would be?

    We used it for the first time last night. But since you can set a join period for a manual launch anyway, we’re likely not going to bother.

    I'm no designer by any means. I can build my own PC's and I'm somewhat comp literate, (self taught), however, there's no way I understand what goes into that. So from my limited perspective, I can't see how much tougher it could be to add at least another 24 hour setting. That lets us do the AM to PM. We already have daily guild events so there's some sort of counter for that in place also.

    Also I was under the impression the join period only takes effect if you let the system launch on the schedule you put down. As in manual launches won't have it. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

    3 for 40, 10% is about right. Absolutely horrendous.
