    Hi Holotable Heroes,

    Skiff Guard (Lando Calrissian), who went undercover in Jabba's palace to help save Han, is coming to the holotables!

    Add Skiff Guard (Lando Calrissian) to your roster by unlocking him in the all-new “GUARD DUTY” Marquee event!


    The Basics:
    • Light Side, Attacker, Hutt Cartel, Scoundrel, Smuggler
    • Lando works best in both Hutt Cartel and Scoundrel factions
    • Will synergize well in a squad with the new Galactic Legend Jabba the Hutt (coming soon)
    • Defense Penetration helps Lando do consistent damage

    Unique Attributes:
    • His ability Covert Coordination gives bonuses to characters based on if the target is Dark Side, Light Side, or Hutt Cartel. This distinction represents his dual role as a Skiff Guard for Jabba and a spy for Luke and crew as they rescue Han
    • Granted Ability - Hutts Favor: Damage dealing based around Lando’s Max Health and the amount of debuffs the target has, plus more!
    • Has the ability to give Armor Shred through Deep Cover

    Inspiration:
    • Kit design is focused around Lando acting as an undercover agent, infiltrating Jabba's palace and blending in as one of Jabba's Skiff Guards.
    • Being undercover he doesn’t have the Rebel faction tag, and while he’s still light-side aligned, he needs to sell his loyalty to Jabba through his actions by working directly alongside him.
    • Our first Return of the Jedi 40th Anniversary Celebration Character
    • We already have Lando from Episode 5 and Younger Lando from Solo - both of these characters really hone in on the "Gambler" aspect of Lando's character. We wanted to do something different with Skiff Guard (Lando Calrissian) - his two new buffs, Deep Cover and Trusted Agent, really play on his undercover nature, and can assist allies from both Light and Dark sides.
    • Unlike the other two Landos, our Skiff Guard (Lando Calrissian) is a Strength based character instead of Dexterity. This was inspired by his ability to hold on tight and keep himself from getting eaten in the Great Pit of Carkoon - as we saw in The Book of Boba Fett, those tentacles are pretty impressive!

    Strategy Tips:
    • One of the main goals for this kit is to get 5 stacks of Deep Cover to earn Hutts Favor which allows him to attack again whenever he uses a basic attack.
    • Mod Suggestions - Critical Chance/Offense, Offense/Health

    FAQ:
    Is this unit required to unlock Galactic Legend Jabba the Hutt?
    Yes, he’s the second of three new Marquee characters needed to unlock the newest GL
    What Relic level will he be required for Galactic Legend Jabba the Hutt?
    Relic 5



  4. Hi Holotable Heroes,

    Today we wanted to take some time to explain what is often referred to as the “Missing Buttons Bug” and why this frustrating issue is still around.

    First off, and most importantly, there is no singular issue that causes this. Rather, there are a number of different types of errors that can occur during battle that will cause the code to stop running. This results in the next unit never getting to start its turn and, since we’re stuck on the last unit’s turn, the call to display the next unit’s ability buttons never happens and as a result they go “missing.”

    What this means is that it’s not a matter of fixing a single bug in battle, but rather fixing every bug that affects the battle system. Since this first began showing up several years ago, we’ve released a number of bug fixes to address this and have seen success in decreasing issues that cause this. The problem is that almost any new or existing issue with the battle system will appear to have the same behavior and look like the same bug (even though it is not the same bug and can have different root causes).

    We are constantly working on identifying and resolving these kinds of bugs as fast as possible and with your help, we have reduced the number of these issues thanks to folks submitting tickets or posting about them. So how can you help?

    The main challenge with fixing these issues is being able to reliably reproduce them in order to track down what actually caused the problem in the first place. The battle system in Galaxy of Heroes is fairly complex and there are a large number of different factors that could cause what looks like a similar bug. This is where your efforts can help us. If this happens to you, we would greatly appreciate if you can send in a ticket with the following information:
    • 1. Screenshot of when this occurred
    • 2. What kind of battle you were in (IE Territory War, Grand Arena, Legendary event, etc)
    • 3. Time and Date it happened (Note your timezone!)
    • 4. What led up to the missing buttons
    • 5. Your Ally Code/Player ID
    This information will help us pinpoint your crash log and we can investigate what went wrong.



    In addition to your reports, we also are working on new ways to help us track down these issues so when they do happen, we can more accurately detect the root of the problem.

    Again, we appreciate your help in this endeavor and a huge thank you to those who have sent in detailed crash reports. We will continue to work on fixing the missing button bugs in addition to reinforcing the battle system in future updates.

    Thanks for reading and see you on the Holotables!

    Hi Holotable Heroes,

    Conquest Volume 7 begins soon and shards for a new character, Ben Solo, will be available for a limited time in this mode! Through the power of a Force Dyad, Ben lifts Rey to new power levels.

    Ben's abilities bring damage to Light Side and Rey led teams, with his Basic ability, A Shadow Within, dealing more damage to tanks and his Special ability, Family Legacy, inflicting Armor Shred. In Grand Arenas with an Omicron upgrade on his Unique ability Redeemed, his attacks also ignore protection.

    Through his Force Dyad Unique, if all allies were Light Side at the start of battle and there is any version of Rey in the allied Leader slot, all allies gain Instant Defeat Immunity for 1 turn at the start of each encounter. Furthermore, while Ben Solo is active Rey can't be defeated, and Ben Solo can't be defeated while Rey is above 50% health. In Grand Arenas with an Omicron upgrade, Ben can also revive when under a Galactic Legend Rey lead and grant his allies Instant Defeat Immunity.

    Earn Ben Solo shards during the upcoming Conquest events! Additionally, Ben Solo will be summonable with a data disk acquired after beating Sector 3 in any Conquest difficulty mode during the upcoming events.

    The Basics:
    • Ben Solo is the Conquest counterpart to Galactic Legend Rey and many of his abilities directly synergize with Galactic Legend Rey
    • He also has good synergy with Rey (Scavenger) and Rey (Jedi Training)
    • Works best when paired with an all Light Side allies squad
    • Can remove buffs from enemy team through Special Ability
    • Increased effectiveness in Grand Arenas with powerful Omicrons

    Unique Attributes:
    • While Ben Solo is alive, any version of Rey in the Leader spot can't be defeated. Ben Solo can't be defeated while Rey is above 50% health
    • His Unique, Redeemed, allows him to ignore Taunt during his turn, including effects like Mace’s Resilient Defense
    • Ben Solo has a Grand Arena Omicron that allows him to ignore Protection
    • When revived through means of Force Dyad, Ben Solo gains Instant Defeat Immunity for the rest of the encounter
    • Certain ability Upgrades will change Special Damage to True Damage

    Inspiration:
    • This unit represents the Ben Solo you see at the end of Episode 9
    • Ben’s synergies highlight his redemption and dedication to helping support Rey
    • His Unique, Force Dyad, was directly inspired by his appearance in the Sith Eternal Emperor Galactic Legend event
    • Many ability names are drawn from his internal conflicts from when he was younger

    Strategy Tips:
    • Either Crit Chance + Crit Damage or Offense + Potency mods benefit him the most
    • Use all Light Side Allies
    • Two Words - Glass…Cannon
    • Utilize Taunt ignore to take down problematic characters on the enemy squad

    FAQ:
    How do I acquire Ben Solo?
    You can acquire Ben Solo through the next several Conquest events
    Why did you choose Ben Solo?
    Rey was the first pair of Galactic Legends that was released and we wanted to return to some of the older Galactic Legends that do not have Conquest counterparts. Ben Solo is designed to increase Rey’s viability in a number of different modes in the game.
