 We all expected to see new upgrades with the new ships, but as I was looking at the blurry pictures blown up 200% or so I noticed that even though the TIE Intercepter and the A-Wing have new upgrades they do not have new upgrade icons.  There are at least two new Elite Pilot upgrades and a new concussion missile upgrade that come with these new ships.  So not only will buying these ships let us play the new ships, but it will add new things we can do with our old ships.

 

For example there is nothing stopping me from giveing Darth Vader the What ever the new missile upgrade that we get with the A-Wing.

I can't read what they are, can anyone make them out better than me.

 I wish FFG had made some links on the article, so I could get a good look at some of the new cards the way they did with their other articles.

 For what it's worth, my guess is that those are the faction-specific upgrades and that they are therefore not ship-specific, hence, no need for upgrade symbols.

except, at least in the case of the A-wing and TIE interceptor the elite skill symbol is pretty clear.

Hey, they need fodder for future previews… what, you just thought they were gonna give away the goods on the first (up)date?

 That's kinda what i was thinking…  Going from the way they "previewed" all the expansions from wave 1, we'll be getting more articles, one per expansion with links to a selection of the upgrades and pilot cards that they want to highlight.

 I  just updated my spreadsheet (see sig) with what I could make out from the previews.  I wish the Falcon and Slave I had been clearer, but there were clearly some cards reused from the base set, and at least 1 card from the A-wing that the Falcon also has.  If anyone figures anything else out, let me know and I will add it to the sheet.

Thanks,

Duncan
