Hiya and welcome to the last Game Update of the year! Here are the updates for 12/20/2016

NOTE: Due to the studio holiday the top guilds for December will be refreshed for the guild room on January 9th.

Daily Login Character- Finn
As previewed in our last update, Finn is the new daily login character for January!
  • Finn now deals more bonus damage with "Crack Shot," and has increased chances to Expose and Stun his enemies with "Takedown."
  • "Hold the Line" now grants increased healing, and shares that healing with Poe Dameron. Additionally, the Omega upgrade for this ability now gives Finn the ability to dispel all debuffs from all allies!
  • "Balanced Tactics" has been reworked to grant more Offense, and much more Defense. This ability also gains a brand new Zeta upgrade, giving your Resistance allies more synergy with Foresight and Expose.
Additionally, some adjustments have been made to Poe and Resistance Trooper:
Poe Dameron
  • Resistance Bravado - Omega Upgrade now inflicts Buff Immunity on target enemy as well as +15% Expose Chance.
  • Stand Firm - Bonuses are now also granted to Finn and Upgrade 6 adds "whenever Poe loses Taunt Finn gains Taunt for 1 turn."

Resistance Trooper
  • Opportune Strike: Omega Upgrade now dispels all buffs from target enemy as well as +15% Damage. Unlock Finn and revisit your Resistance squad today!
