Hi Holotable Heroes!

Here is all the new content you’ll find after today’s update, 4/24/19.

SHARD SHUFFLE
These characters or ships are now available in the following locations:

B1 Battle Droid

FIXES
  • UNIT - Darth Malak will no longer be able to target units that can't be targeted when battling on Auto with no enemy unit directly selected.
  • UI - Updated some battle effect descriptions to further clarify some mechanical interactions and ensure that when a battle effect icon has the lock on it, that lock only refers to the fact that the effect can't be dispelled.
  • TERRITORY BATTLE - Hoth Territory Battle Imperial Assault (Light Side): Hoth Rebel Soldier was inadvertently used in Phase 2 platoons. These have been replaced by Princess Leia in all instances but one, which was replaced by Admiral Ackbar instead.
  • TERRITORY BATTLE - Hoth Territory Battle Imperial Retaliation (Dark Side): Jango Fett was inadvertently used in a Phase 3 platoon. This has been replaced with Director Krennic instead.

    Noone:

    CG: Everyone loves single hard node farms, especially Fleet nodes! Also we better remove all other hard node farms that are on multiple nodes, can't have people farming one thing in less then 6 months!

    Seriously? Another character in fleet battles where everything seems to have an abhorrent drop rate? I have been farming ETA2 for a couple weeks and I've gotten 1 shard in the last 5 days from 5x a day.

    Now we're going to have another "new" character that is (of course) put on a 20 energy node? You guys do know that there are 12 energy nodes too, right? (Yes, it's nice that Droideka is sharing a node with XB, but a 20 energy node!)

    Pretty please, with sugar on top, look at the drop rate on fleet nodes, especially ETA2 and check that you didn't put the decimal in at 0.03% drop rate or something like that?

    Drop rate has been the same for every node...33%

    Characters go on fleet nodes because 1) There are more empty spaces there than cantina (and duplicates in light/dark boards) and 2) To incentivise people to build fleets to do that content. Likewise, ships are going onto light/dark nodes so folks can farm ships without having to stop farming characters.

    That said, like...... Can I please use my ships to get ships somehow? Maybe give folks a heads up that the fleet store will re-open so I can buy something other than zetas?

    I just went 1/5 and 1/5 on these droids. Obviously drop rates nerfed for them!!

    edit: 6/20 now. guess you were right. lol

  • So... Cantina Nodes 2-C and 2-E have no characters on them. Just thought I’d say that.

  • Fleet node farm is pointless. With the average drop rates, its simply not worth refreshing the node/energy, but just buy the shards from shipments..
    Thanks, CG.

    Meanwhile we still have multiple empty Cantina nodes ...
  • CG last 3 years: we realize placing units on hard nodes is not sustainable and are looking at other options.

    CG today: we released several new characters to hard nodes.

    B1 Battle Droid
    Droideka
    B2 Super Battle Droid
    IG-100 MagnaGuard

    As of 4/26 the game forced a reload like it does when I use my old Apple device to play the game and then try to use my Android device to play.
    It then won't let me log into the game without it asking what my Google Play account is (Why did CG forget this?) and then asks me for new permissions including deleting stuff (what was wrong with the old permissions?).
    What the f... Is going on? :s

    Cant find an explanation about this on this forums site or Answers HQ.
