Hi Holotable Heroes,

Dash Rendar’s ship, the Outrider, is docking with the holotables! As a heavily modified YT-2400 light freighter, the Outrider was a top-notch smuggling vessel and (according to Dash himself) almost as famous as the Millennium Falcon.

The Outrider deals multiple instances of damage with its Illegal Laser Cannons Basic and Concealed Concussion Missiles Special abilities. In addition to damage, the Outrider can inflict enemies with Critical Damage Down and Target Lock, as well as dispel buffs and reduce Defense. Outrider lifts its allies by doling out Health and Protection Recovery, Speed Up, Tenacity Up, and Turn Meter, and dispelling debuffs.

Outrider introduces the new Suprosa Supercomputer effect and the new Data Transmission granted ability, which together provides Rebels allies with powerful bonuses based on their role.

Unlock the Outrider during the upcoming Galactic Chase event to add this ship to your fleet collection!


NEWS
Galactic Chase - Outrider
For a limited time, Outrider blueprints will be available as bonus rewards on all Cantina nodes. During this event, Outrider blueprint's drop rate on each node has been scaled to Cantina Energy.

Cantina Battles are rewarding bonus drops from 4/8 through 4/12.

Additive Drops - Home One & Admiral Ackbar
We are running a special level dependent Additive Drop from 4/17 to 4/22 that will either reward Home One blueprints if you are level 60 and above or drop additional shards of Admiral Ackbar if you are below level 60 and have not unlocked ships yet.

Executor Change
Executor will now dispel Breach Immunity and Chaff when the fleet has applied Target Lock 20 times prior to applying locked Breach and Target Lock. This is a minor change to address that should have little to no impact on the balance of fleet matchups.

Old Functionality: Executor ignores Target Lock and Breach immunities when applying the un-resistible Target Lock and Breach even though the description for Breach Immunity and Chaff explain that they should prevent these effects.
New Functionality: When allies inflict Target Lock 20 times, it will now first dispel Breach Immunity and Chaff them first then apply Target Lock and Breach

Not only is this not immediately clear how this works when you read the kits but it also breaks some of our core design rules around how preventing Buffs/Debuffs work. This interaction does not work the same way in other parts of the game and is important to correct from a consistency stand point. Again, our goal is for no change in overall balance for Executor's existing match ups.

OLD TEXT: Whenever a Bounty Hunter ally deals damage with a Basic ability, they inflict Target Lock on the target enemy for 1 turn. The first time allies inflict Target Lock 20 times on enemies, each active enemy, enemies who are called in from Reinforcements, or summoned, are inflicted with Breach and Target Lock. These effects can't be dispelled, evaded, or resisted, and last until the end of the battle.

NEW TEXT: Whenever a Bounty Hunter ally deals damage with a Basic ability, they inflict Target Lock on the target enemy for 1 turn. The first time allies inflict Target Lock 20 times on enemies, dispel Breach Immunity and chaff from all enemies, then each active enemy, enemies who are called in from Reinforcements, or summoned, are inflicted with Breach and Target Lock. These effects can't be dispelled, evaded, or resisted, and last until the end of the battle.
