    Hi Holotable Heroes,

    Admiral Firmus Piett, the fast-rising Imperial officer and beneficiary of the Empire’s most notorious field promotion, is headed to the Holotables! After being assigned to Darth Vader’s flagship, the Executor, Piett dutifully served as Captain under the pompous and half-witted leadership of Admiral Ozzel. However, Piett’s fortunes would be forever changed after Ozzel’s dismissal took some air out of the room, leaving Piett in command. Admiral Piett’s versatility allows him to lead a squad of Imperial Troopers or bring more firepower to an Empire squad as an ally with strong synergies to the newly reworked Darth Vader. Piett introduces a new debuff, Inevitable Failure, that takes advantage of an ally’s eventual downfall by making Piett more powerful over time. Piett dared not fail Lord Vader, and as such, his astute, cunning tactics will be a welcome addition to any Empire squad.

    • Hi Holotable Heroes,

      Today’s update addresses some of the known issues in yesterday’s release. One important change is to raid units. All raid units will be immune to changes to their max Health. This already applied to Raid Bosses so this will only impact the additional enemies in boss encounters. This change will prevent the lock up some players were experiencing when trying to retreat from battle with certain characters.

      See you on the Holotables!


      FIXES
      • GENERAL - Updated all enemy units in all raids to be immune to increases and decreases in Max Health
      • UI - Fixed an issue that caused the interface to be hidden during the Ultimate animations for Galactic Legends Rey and Kylo Ren including the amount of damage dealt
      • UI - Fixed the find tool to include Kylo Ren’s event when looking for Ultimate Ability Materials

      Hi Holotable Heroes,

      In this update, we’re proud to present Galactic Challenges! This all-new game mode represents a huge step for Galaxy of Heroes as it lays the foundation of our new content initiative, allowing us to generate fresh content, challenges, and feats on a regular basis going forward.

      With Galactic Challenges, players will be presented with new battles that provide the opportunity to utilize many parts of their character and ship roster in a fun and meaningful way. Galactic Challenge events keep the game fresh and engaging by offering interesting and unique encounters that feature always-changing combinations of modifiers, locations, and conditions, along with multiple tiers of difficulty. Modifiers add a wide range of positive and negative effects to the battle, meaning you’ll have to mix up your strategies to succeed.

      The best part? This is just the beginning. Galactic Challenges will lay a foundation that allows Capital Games to continue expanding the variety of content we are able to offer now and in the future. We’re all really excited at the studio and can’t wait for our passionate community of players to dive in!

      See you on the Holotables!
