Star Wars Assault Team: Version 1.2.4 Minor Update Released

Welcome to Stuff For Guys, where you'll find information about a lot of useless stuff, an occasional useful stuff, but it's all stuff for guys.  The team at LucasArts and Disney Mobile have released a minor version upgrade (v1.2.4) to the Star Wars Assault Team game on May 13, 2014.  It only addressed some bugs, but it got rid of the annoying repetitive linking screen.  I blogged about some of those bugs in this post, and I'll cover a few more here.  All in all, a few minor bugs were corrected and a few minor bugs may have been introduced or still not corrected, but most importantly, the Tier 4 Arena Crates are still not available.

BUG NOT FIXED: Special Missions Screen Inconsistent
As mentioned in this earlier post, this could be intentional or accidental by LucasArts, but it should be considered a bug.  A good graphical user interface (GUI) designer knows that GUIs need to be consistent.  Look at how many different versions of the Survivor Thursday screens there have been.  This leads to confusion.  Whether this is bad design or a bad bug, bottom line is that it needs to be fixed.

BUG NOT FIXED: Still No Tier 4 Arena Crates
This issue is simply not being addressed openly by LucasArts and Disney Mobile.  I've posted about it in this post and in this post, but have received no word from LucasArts/Disney Mobile on when it will be fixed.  There is some good news though -- there is at least 1 confirmed instance of a special Tier 4 Promotion Item being offered in a Tier 2 Arena Crate.  If this is their way of addressing the issue, and it rewards you like this often, then this can be a good thing.

BUG FIXED: Game Connections Message EVERY TIME
Remember this annoying message showing up all the time after the v1.2 upgrade?  They made it stop.

BUG NOT FIXED: You Lost! [NULL] Trophies
Yes, this was introduced in version 1.2.  No, it doesn't apply only when you have zero Arena Bounties to lose -- it applies whether you lose an Arena battle.

NEW BUG: Incorrect Inventory Pictures
I'm not sure if this is a brand new bug or not, but it's not clear if this already existed in prior versions. The pictures of some of the inventory items seemed to be cached and carrying over randomly.  Here are 2 examples:


  1. Hey, thanks for the awesome tips you share here. One question, how did you link your account? I play on my touchscreen laptop with windows 8 and I can't see any verification button here, hm...

    1. I link my account using Apple's Game Center (I play on my iPhone). You can link your account using Facebook also. If that still doesn't work, then I would recommend emailing support and asking them. Sorry, I don't play this on a Windows machine...
