Hi everyone,

Emperor Palpatine and Ewok Hunt are back! The issues that required us to temporarily disable both have been fixed in this patch. In addition to that we’ve deployed balancing updates to lightsaber heroes in Galactic Assault that should make them viable again. Give them a try and let us know what you think. We also addressed the stuttering upon hard-lock issue in Hero tw
Starfighters.

Finally we want to thank you for your patience while we were working on addressing these key problems! Your feedback is valuable to us so please keep sending it along as we continue to improve the game.

  • Palpatine has been added back to the game
  • Fixed an issue with Palpatine being very overpowered by restricting the angle from which the player could lock on with his lighting ability

  • Ewok Hunt has been added back to the game
  • Fixed an issue in Ewok Hunt where Stormtroopers were unable to board the shuttle

    When will troopers and blaster heroes being able to shoot while frozen, thrown, and on the ground be fixed?

    I hope the next patch late August along with the 2x multiplier and ping issue.

    we can only hope, DICE has a history of terrible updates.
  • Still no lightsaber hit register?
    Whatever.
  • Got an ETA for grievous premier?
  • Where is fix x2 in squads?
  • My questions and suggestions are the best to make SWBF 2 2017 great again.

    Thanks for the hot fix notes. Now, can we please ensure this tweak is added to the August patch?

    Um, so does this mean what it says? Only lightsaber tweaks and balancing changes were made for the Galactic Assault mode? Is HvV lightsaber users remaining the way it already is, without any changes?

    Stamina changes apply to both modes.

    Ping site should have been priority.

  • A last concern: what about Palpatine’s stamina? It doesn’t have any regeneration delay, he will still be a bit overpowered
  • ping by far
  • Are the Xbox One X hanging on quit to menu and crashing the console on claiming a crate issues getting fixed?

    To be honest, we have no idea how it'll be with Palpatine, because when the changes were made his hit detection for lightsaber users blocking was broken. The adjustments, if any are even needed, will be made later when we've got some solid evidence of how he's holding up.

    My reaction
  • They worked on extraction on Jabba’s palace but couldn’t fix the lighting issue on the final phase. Yikes. They basically didn’t balance Palpatine, just fixed his lighting to how it should target people. And no fix for the 2x score multiplyer. Yikessss

  • Hey, @F8RGE, welcome back!
    I have one thing that I would like clarified, if possible. When you say rebalanced stamina for all lightsaber heroes, do you mean that you switched it back to the old system, or that you made modifications to their stamina? I was one of the few that liked the new system. So I was just wondering.
    Great to have you back. Please thank Tom, and TOTALfps for working hard these past few weeks. I hope you weren't injured to severely, but if you need an organ donor, we had a discussion about it in another thread.

    Can't wait to figure out what this new patch breaks next.

    Dice hasn't figured out yet what is causing the difference between the test environment and live environment being so different,so I doubt that this update will be any different than any of the other updates. It'll fix a few things and breaks a lot of other stuff probably.

    I mean every day there are more and more bugs appearing in the game and with every update too. If Dice doesn't get on top of this we won't have much of a game left to play by the time Geonosis gets here.

    While this is a little underwhelming...I'm going to be optimistic, and guess that they've been working on clone wars and patches.
  • About empty lobbys on console I've been able to find a game every time I tried, well besides once. I joined a solo lobby for GA, then just left and joined again. While it was inconvenient, it wasn't as bad as some are saying.
  • When will troopers and blaster heroes being able to shoot while frozen, thrown, and on the ground be fixed?

    Most annoying bug for me right now.
  • Can't wait to play Ewok Hunt. I hope I can get hooked on it because I play exclusively HvV and Hero Showdown and it would be nice to have some variety in my play sessions. The other modes are so-so for me.

    Wait why isn’t the score multiplier being fixed? I’m not complaining I’m just legitimately asking. Also when are the clone trooper skins coming?

    DICE has yet to learn they really need to test in a multi latency environment. They are silly enough that their test environment consists of a closed network where everything runs about the same speed. This is nothing like the real world environment. One would think after all these years of the same thing they would test in an environment that mimics real gameplay.

    It is so obvious they do not, hence the reason what is released works nothing like what they tested. Add to the fact they appear to test only for their "desired" result, not test for things that can go wrong.
