I'm not opposed to having a shot at the unlockable characters. They've had two runs of limited releases, and missing those windows was frustrating, so having a regular shot at them is nice. I am iffy on repeat characters stacking, though. Does this level them up? Does it build up their buffs? I haven't seen a clear explanation of what's going on with them now.

It might just be the terrible frame rate, but I'm 99% sure it got slower (salt in the wound for every cheap death -_-). Or maybe I'm just crazy. The frame rate is so spastic and inconsistent the game is almost unplayable (not sure I'd even want to play it anyway because of all the other reasons above) :/ wish I could do something about it.
As for the star stat, wouldn't it just be more convenient to make it so you only get each character once, so you can't accidentaly get them again? I got Blaze twice pre-update, and it was extremely frustrating despite the 50 red star ring refund.

Didn't you use to get a special egg too? I only got one dupe, and I don't recall exactly what happened.

My game used to stutter pretty badly. Make sure you don't have any other apps or downloads running in the background, clear the RAM if you can, and that might solve your problem. I could usually get a few minutes of smooth(er) playtime that way.

I havent noticed the game running worst than it used to, if anything the loading screens dont seem to take as long which was one of the main bothers with the game before

It's not running (heh. running.) that much better right now. hmm. Sad day :/
I did get 3 special eggs, but I had already beaten the game by that point which means maybe 1 egg every 5 rounds, which can take a while. Also big maybe considering how unfair the bosses can potentially be. Three eggs, eight eggs, it wouldn't do much for me long run. On the bright side, I did manage to get Tikal by some crazy coincidence a few weeks before the update, but she got nerfed pretty hard with the update. More sadness :/

Loading screens are slighty shorter, but my game just falls apart when I hit top speed.

Haven't had a Frame Rate issue myself, but I am glad my game stopped crashing every time it goes to the Score Board rankings.

I'm happy with the changes to the roulette and the better chance to get new characters (though I haven't had much luck yet). But like a lot of others I'm unhappy with how power ups got nerfed, they barely last long enough to be useful and the Wisps got hit the hardest.

booted up the app recently just for the heck of it. The frame rate is certainly better (I can't explain it... it's so wierd) but still has it's moments of slow-down worthy of 06. The game still sucks, though. :/

Also, made it to the highest tier. it looks like a lot of people have given up the game considering how low everyone else's scores are in comparison to mine. I'm not even that good.

I'm not sure if anyone cares, but furthering the "Sonic Team/Sega of Japan can do whatever they want with Sticks and the main series," she's now been added to Sonic Runners

Well, if she's in the Olympics game, it isn't to far of a stretch to see her in this game either.

Until we see her in a full game and not a mobile game or spin off title, I can't say. If she does get added, we might see her in the book.

Pope needs to approve it.
Until he tells the Vatican that Sticks is kawaii, this is strictly non-canon.

Is she the first character from Sonic's non canon games to be introduced to Sonic's canon stuff?

your question doesnt make sense... there arent really non canon games, except for old things like Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine, and they dont really have characters that would be notable to appear in the main series game. Boom isn't "non canon," it's a different series.

however, there's a lot of non canon media, and Sticks isnt the first character to come from a different series. Amy and Charmy were both from old manga before appearing in the games. some of the old cartoon characters have also made cameos, but they were in minor one-off games like the afforementioned Mean Bean Machine (even Robotnik himself is non canon as he represents a different design/origin/personality from Classic Eggman)
