    First Look Trailer - Star Wars Resistance

    I think 6 months is actually a decent amount of time. If the whole 1st season leads up to the destruction of The Hosnian system, then this band of plucky young resistance pilots making a stand against the first order as it attacks their racing station, I think it would be pretty good as a second season - also ties into the resistance sending out a distress call, but not able to respond - as they are defending themselves. Kazudo rallying the other racers to fight, to do what is right hits the right spots. Maybe Yeager knows where an old Pelta class is floating derelict.. or can direct these young pilots to another old rebel General and let phoenix squad be reborn.

    Rebel Convoy 2nd Edition?

    If x-wing was solely an RPG supplement, I would agree with you 100%. However, it is not. It is a head to head versus game. Even the missions are seemingly absent ftom the core set. Now I am all about fluff, and if a Aturi cluster like campaign comes out, something like this may be needed. As is, it doesn't really add to the game that is currently x-wing. The game is not scenario driven - at least as put out by FFG currently, so there is no reason to cater to the minority of players. As I said, if an actual campaign comes out, then we can come back to this. At the end of the day, could this not be done with a generic title? Civilian model. Reduce your attack die by one. -2/-4/-6points. (S/M/L base)

    Apologies. Very few then.

    Rebel Convoy 2nd Edition?

    But no one would, and said upgrade would easily become a “must have” when building a list. This is seemingly antithesis of the 2.0 design philosophy, and would lead, again, to certain ships not being flown, as people would equip this upgrade on named pilots and thus, power creep with red dice - another design element antithesis - or this upgrade being increased in cost to the point it becomes prohibitive.

    STAR WARS: RESISTANCE Discussion Thread!

    Currently in canon, and thas is all Disney will be dealing in, Rogue Squadron has only just been formed by Luke (in the comics) and was only due to him disobeying direct orders. Since Denis Lawson and Mark Hamil are older, and the former previously refused to reprise his role, we will not get an live action movie. Filoni is likely working on his own thing with Sabine and Ahsoka (Thrawn and Ezra will likely be handled in one of the books Zahn is writing that he can't talk about) and mentoring whoever is in charge of Resistance. What that means is it is very likely we will only see Rogue Squadron in the comics.

    Rebel Convoy 2nd Edition?

    @mazz0, @cleardave yes, not every ship is flown by someone from media releases. This is why I mentioned that the factions that use these ships, have likely changed their basic guns from standard civilian models for military grade gear. An outer rim smuggler is NOT the same as someone why operates a legal cargo delivery. One is more likely to be involved in combat, due to the illegal nature of what they do. look at the factions we have; scum and vilainy, rebel alliance, Resistance. These are ALL combat centric, so logically we could put forth that the weapons they use may be upgraded. Until we get a civilian and traders faction, we don't know the actual weapon loadout in terms of red dice. So a character, whether named or generic is ‘heroic’ by classic definition in this game; has the qualities of being a hero or heroine in that they are above and beyond the rest of the universe. edit; it was also mentioned, i think during the conversion kit unboxing (or other early interview) that the chose not to use different stats for the ships, like the old 1.0 yt-1300, as the amount of people who actually flew that version was very minimal, and thus, not worth making them different.

    Rebel Convoy 2nd Edition?

    Because the examples of the ship we see are heroic? As in they are piloted (and upgraded by) characters that have names and involved in either the civil war against the empire and need weapons of war for said battle, or involved in criminal enterprises. If we were to see a “civilian” model, it would likely have 1 attack die. The reason they did this heroic characters have a higher likelihood of having more powerful weapons in their ships, and players often want to play these characters.

    Certainly! Thanks for pointing that out!

    Whoa, whoa, whoa.. way to put words in someones mouth. Filoni is taking on more of the Role George Lucas did with him in the Clone Wars. https://comicbook.com/starwars/2018/08/14/star-wars-resistance-dave-filoni-involvement/

    Thanks! I was having no luck finding a readable version.

    TIE/SF ability + Gunner + Everything

    I couldn't find the agility, or at least make it out from the blurry photo I could find. What I saw implied a value of three I think. I think 3 hull and shield as well. Based on the Special forces gunner it is likely 2 attack, but until shown we don't know. We also don't know the upgrades, though based on the movie and previous version we can assume a likely Gunner, Missile, Tech, and System. But there is a lot we don't know.

    TIE/SF ability + Gunner + Everything

    Have we seen the full stats for this ship? Do we know the attack value? Agility? Even the dial? All these above are unknown. The SF might have a vastly improved dial and a 3 attack. While the sf gunner does seem like a go to, there may be other options we don't know. Hotshot gunner could help it be versatile. Agile gunner probably requires the rotate action, so won't help. The point is, with so much unknown, any raising of issues comes across poorly and unfounded. We could be getting our mag pulse and a gunner card that allows firing of multipe special weapons for all we know - it is all speculation.

    Perhaps it has to do with the fact that Leia is older? Carrie Fisher sounded a lot different.

    I wonder if, with this series, we could get a new form of play for x-wing? I've seen people do mario kart.. why not an official “racing mode” for the game? Larger play area, more focus on maneuvering. That could be fun.

    So.. white linked actions are a thing now? Because that seems like a REALLY big thing that no one has mentioned (I honestly could have missed it)
