Also, it's utility is re-enforced as if you can TL, but not shoot in a round TL is an even better choice as Han can use it next round and you get to take another action.

 

It would be a nice combo with a Weapons Eng.

You can see Leia's Card and Han's Hand in this preview. So it puts some credibility in my first post.

And given the small size of the increase between TL or focus and the combo, the increase will be pretty small. I don't think it changes the .5 to .75 chance to hit number... It just makes TL the better option. I think. But that kind of math twists my brain, as you'd have to work out the probability of each given roll, and how the different effects would effect them, and if it is an increase it's only going to be a few deciamls...

 

Challenge accepted, that's what I made my Matlab scripts for! I will try to get to it tonight, but no promises. Busy doing errands plus academic stuff after I get out of work today.

Han may not say "Huge Ship Only" but I can't imagine a better place for him than a CR90. Giving a ship that can't otherwise Focus the ability to is huge.

It seems that for Leia's card they forgot how to spell maneuver a couple of times.

Nice catch. Probably fake then... But yet they noticed the Han card... Strange.

Han's crew ability doesn't seem consistent with his pilot ability. Not that it has to, but his "gambler" persona comes across in his pilot card. I would have expected something similar rather than an almost guaranteed result.

Well Han Solo sounds awesome to me. Especially since seemingly every time I target lock I end up rolling a lot of eyes and wishing I had focused instead.

Sorry, double posting. To give some examples, Luke has almost the same ability. Chewie is about crit resistance. Force senstives are generally about focus.

He turns the gamble into a sure thing, sounds like Han to me.

I was curious how long it would take for someone to point that out.  These are both fakes.  I'm expecting more interesting abilities for both of these crew cards.

It's also possible they actually spelled it wrong. I guess we'll find out soon enough either way!

 

I'm still going to do the math on Han Solo's crew ability even if it's a fake, because I am curious.

Wouldn't that just suck if the whole first batch of Tantives were spoiled by a simple typo?

It would make the Leia card a collectible... Or just never open the package.. unlike what I did to my original star wars figures!!! (damn me for being 5 at the time!)

it's a good thing the yt-1300 doesn't take fcs, because Han on a Lando with FCS and Gunner? Without the once per round limitatition of an R7 astromech that could get nasty fast.

In a way, yes. I don't imagine it'll be on the same level as a blue Hurricane (currently $15K+ on the 'bay), but some people might be interested in owning one. I'd rather just email FFG and see if they wouldn't send me a corrected version, once they're in print. If they ask for the old one in return, so be it.

Just two more cards of the current Rebel power creep!  If these are real, Leia's card is gonna be awesome/horrible to play with/against.

That's not power creep.
