Hey Everyone,

What happened this week?
  • We had a server outage on 9/8/2016 that lasted for roughly 5 hours. We sent out the currencies that players would have been able to obtain in a day, as well as some other bonuses.
  • There is still an issue where the Guild Leaderboard has 5 Guilds at the top of the list with some very high scores that are not correct. This is a display issue that was caused by the outage on 9/8/2016. The game team is still working on a fix for this so that the correct Guilds are at the top.

What is happening next week?

The Assault Battles: Forest Moon event returns! Here are some additional details on the event:
  • Return to the Forest Moon starting September 15th. This event will run for 3 days, is balanced for 5 characters at level 78+, and requires either Empire or Droid characters.
  • Both tiers rebalanced to require mods. Similar to Military Might, you will need approximately 1-2 star mods for Tier 1. Tier 2 requires approximately 4-5 star mods, gear level 10, and level 80 units with maxed out abilities.
  • Tier 2 is now called the “Bonus Tier” (was “Tier II (Very Hard)”). This tier is intended as a challenge for users who have a maxed out squad and desire a truly difficult experience. Earning the Achievement still only requires completion of Tier 1.
  • Bonus Tier has had the following mechanical improvements for added difficulty:
    • The Ewok Elder in the Final Boss wave of the Bonus tier will now resurrect all dead Ewoks when he is killed. You have been warned!
    • Chief Chirpa has much higher tenacity in wave 8.
  • In both tiers, deadly Ewoks now have a non-dispellable buff called “Deadly” to help increase mechanic clarity.
  • Free replays changed to match Military Might. Rewards for first time completion adjusted upwards.
  • Replay rewards adjusted upwards.
  • Slightly lowered speed of Ewok Scouts & Warriors in Tier 1 (~5-8%) across the board. (They’re still pretty fast though.)

Omega Battles are back!
  • Omega Battles will run this coming Wednesday (September 14th) and Thursday (September 15th).

Have a great weekend everyone!
