There seem to be a lot of topics with question marks in the titles, or that have generated a lot of negativity towards this game, and it hasn't yet been a week since we found out all this stuff. So I'd like to see if there is anyone who likes anything about this newfangled PvP model, rather than complaining that "it hasn't got x" or "y" or simply "it isn't the Decipher game!"
For me, I am chuffed with the fact that we get locations. I love that they have stuck with original artwork. Involving the artwork of the late, great Ralph McQuarrie on the "Jedi Training" objective has sent shivers down my spine. The edge battle seems really interesting too, not only just as a novel way of determining initiative etc, but it seems pretty thematic when you consider the Rebels were striking from the shadows, almost, so you don't necessarily know where they're going to come from. It seems we will be having neutral units (at least, the Human Replica Droid seems to be neutral from what I can see), which might be an interesting aspect, depending on the deckbuilding rules. Incorporating the EU has got me sold on this game to no end, I am enraptured by such cards as "Kuati Security Team", even the Dathomir cards
