Star Wars Assault Team: Han Solo Attack Points Decreased

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 LucasArts team snuck in another one of their changes to Star Wars Assault Team that could affect the outcome of some Arena battles -- the drop in attack power for Han Solo.

Here is the previous Han Solo Tier 5 Level 35 profile:

Here is the new Han Solo Tier 5 Level 35 profile:

His attack went from 668 to 635, AND his special went from 2.4x to 2.3x.  The two changes together mean that one of the most powerful characters in the game just had his special attack bumped down from 1603 (668 x 2.4) to 1460 (635 x 2.3).  That's still enough to kill most characters on the first shot, but it's still a 143 drop in attack points for his special.  If LucasArts ever fixes the issue with not applying the extra damage premium to specials, it would affect Droids even more.

Han Solo was identical to Leia, 4-LOM, Sakiyan, Anzat, Lamproid, Shistavanen and Tuskens, but now he's in a category all by himself.
