  1. This is the big one here. It says that the action causes a ship to "reload" and then says what the steps of reloading are. The "reload action" makes a ship "reload" and the steps for "reloading" (action or no) are those three steps listed there. Lock uses the same wording: "When a ship performs a [lock] action, it acquires a lock." And then the rules say what to do when acquiring a lock, which is universal to all instances of acquiring a lock, whether it's from the lock action or not.
  2. Look, I came here to be attacked and honestly am having a great time right now.
  3. Unironically, if you don't know what a Conditional Sentence in English is, you may want to check out this wikipedia article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conditional_sentence As much as I hate going into "the rules are in English and so we have to follow the rules of English to read them" mode, it's really effing helpful to notice that 99% of sentences that are setting up a condition use the word "If." Look for that and you will be much happier when trying to parse which cards have conditional effects and which do not.
  4. incorrect. "While" effects do not have a hard trigger and can be added (or not) at any time during the appropriate step at the controller's discretion.
  5. looks like a typical Redline turn except he didn't acquire a target lock.
  6. Anakin can't add his ability to the queue unless someone's already in range/bullseye Chain Ensnaring is cut off by the same rule. Sense is now a free measurement to everything on the board during the System Phase
  7. also can't Fine-Tuned Controls or SuperPrecogAdvanced move or Full Throttle or Nantex ability (i think? can't pay the tractor cost to take the action you're not allowed to take, right?)
  8. More fun: two with tractor tokens and one without. A gives to B, who boosts. B gives to Soontir. C gives to B to reposition a second time.
  9. I would be looking at major events here, not some dude trolling at his 8-man local
  10. If you wanna tank your $30 tournament for a $5 challenge coin, I'm in.
  11. After going to an event this weekend and being one of only three players to finish every game, I want to start a 200 Club for people who finish all their games at big events. There might be a cool shield token involved or something.
  12. can't he just spend his focus and then one force to get the focus back?
  13. Oh good. Maybe that will save us from the “Nerf everything in the faction but Jendon” fix.
  14. Highly recommended. Using facebook to organize games and communities leads to infinitely more games. I get so many X-wing games from being in my local X-Wing facebook group. Also, I play another game that has maybe 7 local players for it. If it weren't for me making a facebook group for it and posting it at the local store, I would have met zero of them (well, one; my brother also plays).
  15. once more for the people in the back: Imperial Assault was a violation of Hasbro's exclusive Star Wars board game license. Hasbro and FFG worked out a deal where Hasbro distributes the game and gets a large chunk of the revenue. It is not in FFG's interest to encourage people to buy Imperial Assault miniatures, expansions, et cetera, instead of buying the same for Legion. You'll note that all "board game" coded product (IA, Rebellion, Outer Rim) is not available from FFG's online store.
  16. Anakin, Precog, 7B, R2, 17-point bid? or R2-A6 on Anakin. You don’t have to regenerate if you never get shot. Maybe one or two Afterburners if you don’t like bidding. Seems fun. Lots of fun.
  17. My Juke Seevor at Krayt Cup took advantage of this math to solo a lot of fleeing A-Wings... one damage per turn.
