I was under the impression they only "cleaned out" the post Return of the Jedi EU and that Shadows would be safe since it was between 5-6.

No. They said that unless it was in one of the 6 movies or the Clone Wars TV show it's considered part of Legends. So that includes things like Shadows of the Empire or Force Unleashed. So stuff pre-ANH may or may not be canon either.

There is a bit of a glass half full/empty way to look at it though. Anything from EU/Legends could be considered canon unless contradicted, but you could also say that anything from Legends is not canon unless said otherwise.

People here seem to forget that the outrider does appear in the special edition version of star wars


Making the ship itself one of the few canon ships which has not appeared in the game so far.


I have been hoping that T-47(Snowspeeder) may get added along with AT-AT

None of the other factions of the era have a strong enough presence to be worthy of being a full faction on it's own. The Zhan Consortium is just really bad fan fiction created as a excuse to make an expansion. The Black Sun is powerful, but it's not exactly known for it's military might. Nor the Hutts. Nor anyone else really.


It would only work as a generic Fringe faction that you could dump anything into. That could work.


But please, no captured Rebel or Imperial ships. It ruins the distinctiveness of the factions. Nor should  there be any Firesprays or Shuttles for the Rebels for the same reason. Han Solo flying the Tydirium once does not make it a Rebel ship. And seeing a YT-1300 flying for the Imperials would just be weird in the extreme.

Here is my best guess at a Wave 5:




R-41 Starchaser



Assault Gunboat

Missile Boat


Huge Ships:

EF76 Nebulon-B escort frigate

Escort carrier

(Or if they want to aim high: Victory I-class Star Destroyer)


(On second thought, while it would be cool to see the Missile Boat, a better pick would be the Gamma-class ATR-6 assault transport)

Well, with wave 5 spoiled as only 2 large ships (so far) looks like I may be wrong on timing of another faction.


Still have 12 months left....

The more non-third faction content they release, the lower the chances are that they will eventually make a third faction. There would simply be too much catching up to do, unless they cram 10 ships into a single wave, all of them from that same faction.

It's not easy being green.
