Hiya Holotable Heroes! Here are the Game Updates for 1/25/2018


NEW CHARACTERS
Hold on to what you love
jhcrsfaqqwb2.png
Admiral Holdo and Rose Tico join their fellow Heroes on the Holotable! Amilyn Holdo is a seasoned Resistance tank with powerful ally support and enemy debuffs, while Rose Tico is a fierce attacker who can stun and grant her allies buffs. Both of these valiant heroes are ready to join your Resistance squad and lead you to victory!
For a sneak peek at their kits, please be sure to give the Character Strategy posts, linked below, a looksee.
EVENTS
Spark of the Resistance I
Join forces with Resistance fighter ROSE TICO and battle the First Order in this new Marquee event!
  • Date event begins: January 27th
  • Lv requirements for event: 20+
  • Required Content for event: None

Spark of the Resistance II
Join forces with AMILYN HOLDO and battle the First Order in her own unique Marquee event!
  • Date event begins: January 27th
  • Lv requirements for event: 20+
  • Required Content for event: None

SHARD SHUFFLE
Wicket, Nightsisters, and the Character Release Cadence

Starting today, the following Character Shards will be made available in Shipments. Going forward, you’ll also see them in more traditional farmable locations. These characters will also continue to appear as rewards in their respective recurring events.
  • Wicket
  • Mother Talzin
  • Nightsister Zombie
  • Nightsister Spirit
After listening to feedback and collecting player data, it’s clear that our efforts to make the distribution of these faction-defining characters special - by having them farmable exclusively behind recurring events has caused confusion on how marquee characters are released. In the future, we will be working harder to preserve the integrity of the Character Release Cadence, by ensuring that characters released via marquee events cycle through the game in a more standardized fashion, within clearly defined periods of time.
Characters released via Territory Battles, legendary events, Hero’s Journeys, and other special occasions will continue to have a more unique and challenging farming schedule.
Thank you all for helping us grow and improve the game!

    I appreciate the lower energy node for Kylo. And an easier way to farm Talzin. Nice one.

    So sad....

    "Rose Tico is a fierce attacker" did they watch the same movie we did?

    She was pretty effective against Finn. Took him out twice. ;)

    You know what guys? You did it. Your INSUFFERABLE whining over these characters has made me search for my old EA login details just so I can post this ONE thing:

    Thank you so much team, I love Rose and Holdo even more and I'm so happy you didn't cave to the angry man children who have been endlessly complaining since the movie came out. Thank. You.

    And really looking forward to the Dark Side reveal next month!

    What a lame update and past couple days. Killed the Revan rumors. Added the two crappiest characters of all time to the game. Now instead of Revan we are getting a rework that we should already have. Epic fail.
  • Options
    What shipments are they referring to for talzin and the others? The crystal one?

    Yeah, at least they gave us news about shard shuffle.. Nothing on Yoda, though. A little underwhelming, these 2 toons are probably the worse one we ever had (Rose is a kind of Jar Jar and Hondo, well.. I did not even realize how she was called during the movie)

    Kylo unmasked and tie silencer will be available on the same catina node per your article.

    Is that correct?

    Thank you

    Psh this didnt kill nothing. We knew this is what this update was. Kozi hinted that Revan or something like that is coming in febuary

    Yay we get some really awesome characters... I hope I don't sound too excited. Won't be using these characters at all for any one of my resistance teams because they played no major role for the resistance

    Surely Admiral Holdo will be getting a Capital Ship down the line right?

    I believe its referring to the daze

    Two toons nobody is waiting for. Literally, nobody. Let's face the facts. CG doesn't really have a choice though. EA and Lucasarts decide.
    “Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.”

    That's what it seems, and is consistent with most of their new ships. Rey + Falcon on the same node, FOST + Kylo Shuttle, Shoretrooper + TIE Reaper, etc.

    So cantina 3 is pretty generous, I'll take it.

    As for the two ladies, I'll pass, and I'd love to see how many Rose packs you sell even though her kit is strong .

    Holdo sounds OP, but I guess you'd have to make her that way to make money off her

    That would be nice, since that what was promised when this new Character Release Cadence was initially announced.

    Now put Baze back in the Guild Event Store.
