Tomorrow will see a new game update For Star Wars: Force Arena. This update features adjustments made on the arena to improve the overall experience of the game. For details, please see below:
■ Game Mode Balance Patch
2 vs 2 Arcade Mode
Balance improvements were made to the popular 2 vs 2 Arcade Mode. In this mode, there had been a strategy to constantly strike an opponent’s middle turret with an airborne support card and a specific leader. It was decided that this undermined the strategic diversity and fairness of the game. Therefore, in this patch, the amount of damage to the middle turret and Shield Generator will be adjusted while the effectiveness of support cards in general combat is maintained so that Squad Leaders can enjoy a fairer 2 vs 2 Arcade Mode.
■ Balance Adjustments
A Balance Patch has been made on the cards listed below.
All numbers listed in the Balance Patch are based on the cards at Level 1.
Light Side Unit Balance
Obi-Wan Kenobi is one of the most popular Light Side leaders who has been greatly favored by Squad Leaders since his release. However, the effect of his special ability “Lightsaber Defense”, which is activated when Obi-Wan’s health reaches a certain percentage, has excessive efficiency compared to the initial development intent. Therefore, in this patch, Obi-Wan’s special ability was adjusted.
Dark Side Unit Balance
The Zabrak Assassins are favored by many Squad Leaders because of their special battle pattern which allows them to hide and target enemy leaders. However, some have been reluctant to use this unit due to their poor maneuverability. Therefore, in this patch, the Movement Speed of the Zabrak Assassins have been increased so that their battle efficiency is also improved. Squad Leaders will now be able to raid enemy leaders more quickly with the Zabrak Assassins.
First Order BB-Unit
First Order BB-Unit is a special unit often used to repair heavy units deployed in the battlefield, like AT-ST Walker and TX-225 Assault Tank. In this patch, the AI was improved to track and repair tech units so that BB-Units can be used in battle more actively.
