Hello Holotable Heroes,

We are excited to announce more information about the upcoming new Galactic Legend Leia Organa and the Speeder Bike Pursuit Raid she will be featured in!

Here are the final requirements needed for the Leia Organa Journey Guide, but first, a word from CG_ABC, the Designer behind Galactic Legend Leia Organa.

Dev Quote:
“Taking such an iconic character like Leia Organa and having her feel like the powerful, tactical leader of the Rebel forces has been one of the most compelling challenges I've had to face. I wanted her to be a reflection of the strong leader she was by willingly being on the frontlines and never being afraid to face down those enemies who sought to see her defeated. As the leader, Leia was able to take control of the harshest situations and able to fight on her terms. To reflect this in the gameplay, the Rebels should dictate the flow of battle and therefore nobody should be manipulating their abilities in a way to catch the Rebels off-guard. So, Leia levels the battlefield by making both teams immune to Cooldown manipulation.

When I was working on the ultimate and presented the initial idea, the feedback was that it was strong but needed something that really tipped the power scale in their favor. I looked at how the animation would be impacting the battlefield and it just felt like the enemies would be shaken up and the ground would be split. It felt like the entire enemy team should be Fractured.

The goal was to provide players with tools throughout the kit to make strategic decisions to take down the priority targets she would be facing. Capturing her ability to empower those around her was also something important for her to express through her synergies and decision making. On Offense, her capabilities are competitive with the top squads in the game and the squad she leads is a great option against almost any other squad. During testing, empowering the right ally with Leia’s abilities has led to some significant damage output oftentimes eliminating an opponent in one blow.”

Leia Organa’s squad will also be used in the coming months for:
  • Conquest
  • Galactic Challenges
  • Datacrons
  • Economy events (New Endor Escalation Tier)

Speaking of her squad, it was important to us that players would not need to take apart their Commander Luke Skywalker (CLS) squad to create the ideal Leia team. You should be able to build a strong GL Leia squad while keeping your CLS squad intact and a key part of pulling this off was designing Captain Drogan alongside her.

Speeder Bike Pursuit Raid Update
The rewards for the upcoming Speeder Bike Pursuit Raid will be in parity with the existing Krayt rewards.

MK3 Featured Raid Currency
As noted in a previous post, when Speeder Bike Pursuit arrives later this year it will become the new Featured Raid. As such, we will be moving the MK3 currency from Krayt Dragon Hunt and putting it into the Speeder Bike Pursuit Raid reward track. Just like the Krayt Dragon Hunt, if you hit Guild Milestone 1 or higher in the Speeder Bike Pursuit you will receive MK3 currency.

Raid Cadence
We’ve been closely monitoring your feedback on the time requirement of Featured Raid Participation and plan to adjust this with the release of the next Raid. We are looking to take the 3-day cadence and adjust it to 6-days, with the intention of the change to allow players more downtime between Raid launches. To achieve this, we will be maintaining the same duration of the raid but will double the start cost and rewards so that players will get the same value of rewards had they run multiple Raids in the same timeframe. This will ease the stress of needing to constantly launch a Raid after having completed one without affecting rewards.

Raid Length
We also heard your feedback that Raids, while awesome, are being released at a faster pace than what you find enjoyable. So for the upcoming Speeder Bike Pursuit Raid, we are estimating it will be featured between 8-9 months.

Thank you for stopping by and reading our post on Galactic Legend Leia Organa, we look forward to listening to and reading your feedback. We hope to share more information on the upcoming Raid’s mechanics in a future post.

See you on the Holotable,
