Hi Holotable Heroes!
Here is all the new content you’ll find after today’s update, 2/6/19.


CHARACTERS AND SHIPS
For more info on these units, check out the kit reveals and strategy guides below:
  • B1 Battle Droid
    We wanted to clarify the order of operations for some of the interactions with B1 as we had many conversations about this kit internally. Specifically, it’s important to understand how Droid Battalion relates to several Raid characters’ abilities and their playable counterparts.
    B1’s interaction with Traya lead: When B1 takes damage from Traya's leader ability, B1 will cleanse any debuffs on itself before Traya's lead can heal her Sith allies.
    B1 Devour/Annihilate interaction: When B1 is Devoured or Annihilated, its unique will trigger, causing it to lose 8 stacks of Droid Battalion and dispel all debuffs on itself. Although B1's unique, Droid Battalion, states that B1 "can't be defeated or destroyed while they have Droid Battalion," losing stacks of Droid Battalion represents whittling down the army of B1s. As such, the Rancor's "Devour" and Darth Nihilus' "Annihilate" will trigger Droid Battalion to lose 8 stacks.
    B1 and abilities that deal damage multiple times: B1 will lose 8 stacks for each instance of damage dealt. For example, being hit with Rey (Scavenger)'s "Flurry of Blows" will remove 32 stacks and being attacked while B1 has Expose will cause it to lose 16 stacks.

  • Emperor's Command Shuttle
  • B2 Super Battle Droid

CHANGES
  • 4x Fleet Pack & Removal Fleet Mega Pack
  • New Characters in Weekly Shipments for Level 15 to 69 -
    • Stormtrooper Han
    • Princess Leia
    • Old Ben
    • Farmboy Luke
    • Boba Fett
    • Lando Calrissian
    • Darth Maul
    • Count Dooku
    • Darth Sidious
    • Biggs Darklighter
    • Wedge Antilles
    • Qui Gon Jinn
    • Scavenger Rey
    • Kylo Ren
    • Captain Phasma
    • Finn
    • Poe
    • Veteran Smuggler Han
    • Veteran Smuggler Chewbacca
    • Clone Wars Chewbacca
    • Ahsoka “Fulcrum” Tano
    • Darth Nihilus
      We decided that adding these characters to Weekly Shipments for players level 15 to 69 was the best option as new players may want to pick up some of their favorite Star Wars characters while SWGoH veterans may find it annoying to have a bunch of characters that they have most likely already earned diluting their chances for the unit that they really want.

FIXES
  • UNIT - Units that were copy debuffs now properly copy Critical Damage Down
  • UNIT - Units that apply opposing buffs/debuffs now properly apply Critical Damage Down/Up.
  • UNIT - A bug has been fixed with a marker that identified a units turn not expiring at the end of the encounter. This will prevent Carth Onasi’s Leadership from providing extra assists in multi-round encounters.
  • SOUND - During Cantina battles, Cantina bar music will no longer play at inappropriate times.
  • UNIT - Fixed a bug where Ahsoka Tano (Fulcrum) would not fully dispel Offense Up when using Whirlwind.
  • LOCALIZATION - Fixed a bug where Chimaera's "Strategic Dominance" did not state that it cannot be evaded.
  • UNIT - Fixed a bug where Shoretrooper's "Target Weapons", Rangetrooper's "Take Aim", and Colonel Starck's "Debilitating Shot" and "Blizzard Four Barrage" did not trigger Biggs Darklighter's "Adrenaline Rush".
  • LOCALIZATION - Adjusted the description for the “Flawless Victory” achievement, and the description for the Veers portrait, to explicitly state that they are earned from a Territory War victory in which all enemy squads are defeated. (Previously they did not explicitly state that victory was necessary.)
  • LOCALIZATION - Updated Hermit Yoda’s “In Exile” to specify that he escapes at the start of a turn.
  • EVENT - Kylo Ren's portrait is now a first time reward in the Jakku Omega Battle Tier III.
  • GENERAL - There is now sound for the 'X' close button on the "Suggested Mods" screen
  • QUEST Fixed Tier II of the Ewok quest line, “Endor Allies”, counting Stormtroopers eliminated by anyone in your party if you had at least 1 Ewok. Please note that quest progress for Tier II (Eliminate 10 Stormtroopers) will be reset if you have not completed this tier already.

    Interesting. No Shard pack for Emperor's Command Shuttle, but to compensate the Fleet Energy Pack is available through the 13th......
  • Downloaded the update and b2s kit isnt updated.

    NS Acolyte & Daka Bundles...interesting.
    Is this part of a "future" puzzle?
  • I will very much be looking forward to adding B1 to my collection of droids.

    Reinstalling the game fixed the issue.
  • It's past due for Carth and Juhani to become farmable. Starting to get frutrated with the delay.

    Is that the same for mass assists? Seems like it would have to be.

    Actually today was the FIRST day for them to become available, so according to their own release schedule they have about 2 more weeks to release them
    "ARE WE BLIND? DEPLOY THE GARRISON."
  • Hopefully there is something in Magnaguards, Grievous’s, or the Droidekas kit that will punish the opponent for targeting B1 or taunt to protect them. Because at the moment some characters can just one shot B1 with how his unique works.

    Yes, each character that is called to assist will cause a separate instance of damage that will remove stacks.

    Obviously. Mass assist is also multiple instances of damage, only even clearer so than Flurry of Blows imo.

    So revan squads will blow up b1 faster than they do traya if revan marks b1.

    We don’t know for sure. There are 3 more droid kits to be released this month, and one of them may have something to prevent that from happening.

    Maybe. But it would have to be a mechanic that renders revan direct focus ability useless.

    Seems obvious to me and you.....but not to several other people I talked with....hence the request for clarification.

    Looks like they are delaying it by a week or two for a Darth Revan March release (announcement is a week early so they don't want to overshadow the reworks with a Revan announcement)

    I honestly don't mind the extra time to farm other stuff

    Or something that will punish heavily for going after B1. Currently magnaguard gets buffs if he is ignored. His rework may continue that to a further extent, so that if Revan focuses down B1, magnaguard becomes a beast.

    Could be. We'll find out in a couple of weeks.
  • Looking forward to all the droid content :) but when are we getting carth and juhani farmable?

    So this order of operations is guaranteed to screw something else up because thats how you make these things work. Then leave them broken like zombie in sith raid huh @CG_SBCrumb
  • All I hope for is something to bring diversity back to arena shards.
    Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad Revan came back and I was able to unlock him the second time around as a purely F2P farm. However, seeing 46/50 teams as Revan mirror matches just isn’t fun. Hopefully the new reworks forces more Traya, GG, and CLS teams back into the top 50 and it starts to be fun again.

    With shard chats why is diversity needed?
