I would have thought there was enough time to have Wave Three in development.  I haven't had time to look very hard, have there been any rumors?

wave 2 hasn't even arrived yet.. why do you even really care at this point?

in a few months after wave 2 has been released and the standard lists have finally settled, then i think it's fine to start speculating about wave 3.. but for now.. focus on what's in front of you not what's down the road


Current Fleet

Rebellion: 5 X-wings, 4 Y-wings, 5 A-wings, 3 B-wings, 1 HWK-290, 2 YT-1300's, 2 E-wings, 1 Z-95, 1 Rebel Transport, 1 CR-90

Empire: 8 Tie Fighters, 2 Tie Advanced, 9 Tie Interceptors, 3 Tie Bombers, 1 Lambda Shuttle, 3 Firespray 31's, 2 Tie Phantoms, 2 Tie Defenders

I…just…can't….take…it…any…more…..

I think in one of the other 30 or so Wave 3 speculation threads that somebody's younger brother who works at the factory in China leaked that Wave 3 was going to be:

Jedi Starfighter
ARC-170
Droid Tri-fighter
Vulture Droid Starfighter

 

Don't quote me on that, as it's been a while since I've looked through ALL of them. I could be wrong.

I have tried looking, but this forum loads soooo slowly that it gets painful to wait.  I expect the problem is here, but as this is the only site so encumbered I just live with it.

Sounds like complete nonsense to me, why would FFG start releasing Clone Wars era ships and why would they release 4? If they were going to do this surely they would releas them in a core set first? As previously mentioned wave 2 isn't even out.

It's possible I could just be coitusing with you because this exact thread is started almost exactly every 2 weeks by someone unwilling to search for the previous 30 threads that have been made regarding this exact same subject. Maybe while I'm snowed in I'll post a link to every thread that has been started regarding this subject. I wonder how many characters I can have in my signature…

I hear wave 3 will be Luke’s speeder and speeder bikes. I don’t know what the stats will be though.

Jawa Sandcrawler Ewok Hangglider Gungan Submarine Are the obvious ones. Bur what really surprised me was the Cliegg Lars Hover Chair. I had heard definitive news that that would not come out until wave 4.
Be seeing you.

For sure Wave 5 will have a pair of shoes with an empty movement template and a range 0.05 6 attack dice lightsaber.

Wave 3 is supposed to be the Z95 and B-Wing for the Rebels and the Executor and Death Star for the Empire (the first Death Star, you'll have to wait for Wave 4 to get the Death Star II and the coveted "Fully armed and operational!" upgrade card.

Considering it is taking a minute and a half to load every page change, I looked three pages back and gave up.  Lazy, sure.  I play both Star Wars games and mostly just check the rules area because of the painful browsing.  Also, wave two is painfully late and I would have expected some news on upcoming models to help keep interest from flagging.

My opinion and hope is that wave 3 will be the last and will hopefully include:

Tie bomber

b-wing

2 additional "large" ships, something like light armored transport/support ships (or something).

 

Otherwise I don't see to many more options, in either theme (star wars OT) or in mechanics (not much more unique play/variety left in the attack/def/sheild/hull setups).

Any more ships and I think they will just turn into mirrors of other ships, with maybe an extra action ability or something.

 

Now I would be excited if they released more pilot/upgrade packs.  That imo would do more for the game then more ships.
