Community Update – 8/26/2016


Here is the community update for this week.

What happened this week?

  • This past week we saw the release of the Emperor’s Demise event. There are only a couple of days left to participate in the event and unlock Emperor Palpatine, so don’t miss out! The Emperor has not foreseen when he will return, so this may be your only chance for a while…

What’s happening next week?

There will be an update next week that introduces a number of new things, including:

  • Rebalancing of the Credit Heist event, adding additional tiers of difficulty and increased rewards.
  • The return of the Assault Battles: Military Might event, including a new difficulty tier that is quite challenging.
  • A new event that replaces the current Training Droids Hunt. This new event will make appearances in the same way that the current Credit Heist event does.
  • Kit Fisto shards will be available from Cantina Battle 4F.
  • Lastly, the daily login character for September is our first character from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the Scarif Rebel Pathfinder! In addition to being the daily login character, we have a special event running all throughout September that will allow you to earn one additional shard for Scarif Rebel Pathfinder each day.

Look for the full details on all of the above in the update notes next week. Good luck to those of you that are making that final push for Emperor Palpatine this weekend!
