DARING DROID (MYTHIC EVENT)

A new Mythic event makes its way to the Holotable! As detailed alongside BB-8's Legendary Event, Mythic Events are a way to replay a previously completed Legendary Events. Mythic Events are max-level content that will only appear once you’ve completed the Legendary version first. Once the Legendary version is completed, the Mythic Event will unlock immediately and become available to play as long as it is still running.

In the Daring Droid Mythic version, players will be able to replay the original Legendary Event final tier, play a new, more difficult tier where they can take any characters in, and a new tier that reverses the encounter! Battle against the Empire with the team from a A New Hope! And similar to BB-8's Mythic Event, R2-D2's will return everytime the Legendary event is run.

HERO'S JOURNEY: LUKE RETURNS!

BUGS
iOS Crash Fixed[b/]
We have fixed an issue that was affecting iOS users and causing them to crash upon their initial load into the game. This issue has now been fixed! The new client will automatically download to your device, unless you have automatic downloads disabled. If you automatic updates disabled on your device, you will need to navigate to the SWGOH game, within the iOS app store, and select the update option to manually update your client.


Characters
  • Ahsoka Tahno (Fulcrum): "Perseverance" will no longer incorrectly dispel Healing Immunity inflicted by Rey (Jedi Training).
  • BB-8: Fixed an issue that could cause "Roll with the Punches" Zeta upgrade to fail to call an Assist.
  • Death Trooper: The Taunt effect from Deathmark, inflicted by "Terminate", will no longer incorrectly linger after Deathmark expires.
  • Hermit Yoda: AI controlled Hermit Yoda will now prioritize "Strength Flows From the Force" over "Master's Protection".
  • Mother Talzin: Turn Meter Gain from "The Great Mother" will now function correctly during the first wave of a battle.
  • Rey (Jedi Training): "Insight" Zeta upgrade will now correctly grant Foresight at the start of encounters beyond the first.

Guild Events
  • Hoth Rebel Officer: Fixed bug where this character gained Foresight at the incorrect times.
  • Edited icon in details tab to be defensive passive on focused defense instead of rebel passive icon.

WHAT'S AHEAD
The price for treason.

    You guys at CG have been receiving a lot of critics these days, but as a F2P all I can say is: thanks for letting me play an awesome game totally for free, you guys are doing an excellent job as far as Im concerned.
    Happy holidays and may you all take a good rest and recharge your batteries with your families.

    Is CLS event a mythic event as well?
  • Ugh, no new characters? In the month of a new movie release, I was hoping for more than 1 new character (RJT) and only two total new characters (RJT and KRU) from the new movie until January at best.

    What, you don't count SF Pilot?
  • There IS hope. Looks like a solid update. Worry about the sale of g12 gear for f2p/p2p balance but the deluge of new CLS will probably dampen that effect anyway

    I'd like to add to this a little.

    What I love is that the first time CLS came around, all I had was STHan and Farmboy Luke at 4*. Hadn't even unlocked Leia or Old Ben or R2. But between then and now, I have had the time to get them all to 7* and geared up to GL9 or GL10 in preparation for the inevitable return of CLS. So a big thanks for giving us enough time to fully prepare for the second run of CLS!

    I had a lot to do in that time. Aside from getting the New Hope Rebels leveled, I had to get a full 7* Empire team for R2, which required a 7* Thrawn, which required a 7* Phoenix Squad. So now, as a player who started in June, I have 3 pretty good teams, I can solo GW with Phoenix, feel like i'm participating in TB and TW, and even do raids with my guild. The progression in this game isn't the fastest out there, but it's steady and doesn't take years to get a really good squad or two. So props to the devs for that!
  • Small/new guilds continuously get beaten with sticks just for being small or new. This is a structural problem that must be addressed, as it is getting out of hand this way. Filling platoons is already hard for many guilds, but if you have to invest what little currency you get into farming a character instead of buying G12 pieces, you only get further behind.

    Having these characters as extremely long term rewards (in the style of the raid characters) would be hard enough, but requiring them is much worse than requiring General Kenobi even. At least you get him as a BONUS in addition with the raid reward. Here, someone in a small guild would have to spend everything he gets for about 4-5 months just to unlock a character, so it is entirely unfeasible (Because the difference in rewards between new/small and big/old guilds has not been well constructed).
  • Thank you! You all incorporating community feedback to not just replay legendary events but to help us earn rewards from them is a much appreciated gift. Happy holidays to all the folks over there!

    Just wanted to confirm - only the $100 crystal pack will have the bonus crystals? Or will the smaller ones be available with the bonus as well?
  • How about instead of 5 wampa shards, they give us DSTB achievements with wampa shards like with LSTB and Hoda... Beyond the one achievements for getting 48*

    Is Hermit Yodas AI also fixed so that he will use strength flows from the force when protection is low? (As opposed to waiting until he's super low on health)

    *edit- nevermind. I'm an ****. You fixed it. Lol

    In the Daring Droid Mythic version, players will be able to replay the original Legendary Event final tier, play a new, more difficult tier where they can take any characters in, and a new tier that reverses the encounter! Battle against the Empire with the team from a A New Hope!

    For this final tier do all the characters need to be 7* and is it the exact team from A New Hope (ie Raid Han, Farm boy luke, Old ben, Leia, Chewie, and R2) or can you use any rebel?
