  • This update is really good. Some other things that changed:
    Energy recharge time was reduced from 10 minutes to 6 minutes.
    Energy cost for the Arena was reduced from 4 to 2.
    The special mission battles were made more difficult to be more consistent with the tier level.
    A new limited time special mission was added to build the bounty hunter IG-88.

    I have still had some problems with freezes and crashes, especially when starting a mission I haven’t done before. It does this on both my Windows Phone and tablet.

    I also noticed a lag when using a continuous damage weapons such as thermite grenades. There is a long pause from the time the weapon hits and the game to respond to touches again.

    All in all, a good, much needed update.
