Battlefront II patch for BB droids

The Makers refuse to give up on Battlefront even after all of the hardships it has endured. Recently, BB-8 and his rollie-pollie nemesis BB-9E hit gameplay. With any new add on, no matter how much beta testing you do, new additions will cause problems. They may be programming related or meta breaking problems created by very observant players. Either way a new Battlefront II patch is on the way.
