    I'm pretty sure @Chrysis and I got our game in. I'm at work but I'll try to find the results this evening unless Chrysis gets them posted first.

    It was a great turnout this year. When can we expect the next one? Late January-ish? Maybe a bit after the next wave hits the shelves?

    Also, the Empire is not the bad guys. We are a natural progression of peace within the Universe. The Republic was a multi-headed beast with too many voices and not enough actions. Corrupt to its core, it allowed the Trade Federation, the Jedi, and other threats to grow stronger as the Senate debated on if they were even really hurting the people the Republic swore to protect. As the Empire, we are one mind, one voice, and we are stronger because of it. We can truly protect the Imperial People with decisive action against the terrorist cells, like those in Lorthal, who steal from law abiding citizens and call it liberation. If one were to listen to the propaganda set forth by the so called "Rebels" you'd believe we are greedy, selfish monsters kidnapping children and murdering their parents. Does that sound like a mighty Empire? With Trillions of citizens and a military force reaching 20 Billion soldiers this year? I think not. We are not the bad guys. We are the Strength of Peace against the Terrors of Destruction. We are the Empire! Long Live the Emperor!

    I'm going to need a bigger tackle box.

    EDIT: Or just admit I need an entire box just for my Imperial stuff and a separate one for my Scum and Rebellion stuff.

    A Royal Guard Defender? As if the TIE Defender wasn't any more powerful or intimidating.

    That should yield some interesting results.

    My 3 boxes aren't going to be big enough (they're hardly enough as it is).

    That's pretty exciting though. The defender could definitely use some love.
    Wonder if they'll do a Veterans for Rebels or Scum as well (Scum could probably use it more)

    Legal Slavery existed in the time of the Republic. Slavery didn't become a "evil" thing in Earth minds until 300-400 years ago. Until then, we were perfectly fine with owning people.

    Well, that makes the choice of whether to buy the defender/a second bomber super easy then.

    Looks like the Bomber titles allows you to take 2x 4-cost or less crew instead of crew as well!

    And I think the 8PS bomber says:
    "Once per round, after you discard an [EPT] Upgrade card, flip that card faceup"

    !

    And it's hard to link, but A PS8 Bomber pilot that can re-use one shot EPTs for 24 points. (And it comes with Crack Shot for this purpose, clearly)

    Edit: And Maarek Stele in a defender with the same pilot ability as the existing version.

    Also:
    - A free Bomber title that removes all ordnance slots and adds two crew slots, but you cannot equip crew that cost more than 4 points, so no Gunner or Emperor.
    - Explanation of the Tractor Beam rules: -1 agility for each Tractor token until the end of the end phase, plus some more print.

    Gotta admit this pack is probably the most excited I've been for the new waves in a while. Definitely need to pick this one up.

    Saw some speculation (ie. Wild hopes) that a rebel version would be the X-wing and E-wing. I'd have to agree. I'd love to see the T-65 get some better upgrades and I just enjoy the E-wing for some reason.

    T-65 seems pretty unlikely to get a full release, at this point. They're pushing TFA stuff way too hard to want to generate that kind of market confusion. I could see the T-65 getting an x1-style title, but who knows what box that would show up in.

    E-Wing seems obvious but I'm not sure what you pair it with. Y-Wing basically already got its upgrade box with BTL-A4 and TLT, but maybe they do that anyways. You could do plenty of new stuff with Ys just by giving them a way to take an EPT.

  • crimsoncoyotecrimsoncoyote Registered User regular
    I guess the question would be what would be needed to help out the T-65.

    It could be some sort of x-wing only upgrade to turn a hard turn or a k-turn into a talon roll?
    Might need more than that, but it's a thought.

    There's so much in that box I can barely process it at all.

    looks like a partial spoiler of a new Imperial-only crew card in the bombfender box, as well

    looks like Systems Officer, with text: "when you [reveal a] maneuver, [select a] friendly [ship at some range or other], that [ship may do something]"

    with the interest in the 300 point games maybe we can do a 2v2 match or something. Currently I'm thinking sometime between Christmas and new years.

    Give it SLAM and a points reduction, say it's doing the wing-closing to speed up thing

    it needs some kind of way to reposition itself, basically. It's just...too easy to outfly at this point in the game (most small ships have either a turret or a boost/barrel roll now), and if you miss on your first run you probably don't have enough health/dodge to come around for another pass. It needs some way to do anything beyond "point straight at enemy and pray".

    also the T-70 eats its lunch points-wise :bigfrown:

    Super happy for bombers/defenders though, this is a cool update but what does the last T-70 pilot do

    The T-65 is in nowhere near as bad a place as people seem to think.
    Integrated Astromech is all it really needs to shine again.

    I'm skeptical but I want to be convinced

    I mean the 70 has already Tokyo drifted its way into my heart, but I'd like the classic X to do well too
