    Shanturin reacted to Mbweha in The Playbook (YouTube Tactics Series)   
    Hello Legion Lovers,
    My name is Mbweha (Ben), and I'm one fifth of Team Relentless, which is a collection of Star Wars: Legion players who are dedicated to success at high levels of competitive play through growth, innovation, and sportsmanship. We've recently launched our first YouTube series: The Playbook.
    Each episode of The Playbook is less than ten minutes, and focuses on doing just one thing in Legion very well. The first three videos (74-Z Speeder Bikes, Winning the Sniper War, and Death Troopers) are up now. I hope you'll check them out and learn something new!
    Thanks,
    Mbweha (Ben)

    Really? Tank droid, Hailfire, crab droid, commando droids, Magnaguards, Maul, Asajj, Durge (not happening ), Jango, Cad Bane, a bunch of oddball politicos (not a fan, but they are there). And that's only the stuff I can think of off the top of my head. Compared to X-wing the CIS has lots and lots of options for units in a ground battle.

    No. The timing doesnt work out. Scouting Party triggers when Rex is deployed and you can only choose units that did not perform a scout move yet. The choosen units also perform the scout move using the scout value of Rex. For reference:
    "The scouting party x keyword allows especially skilled scouts to lead a small band of troopers into a forward position. After a unit with the scouting party x keyword uses the scout keyword, it may choose up to x friendly trooper units at range 1–2 that have not performed a move using the scout keyword. Each chosen unit may perform a move with a speed equal to x, where x is the scout x value of the unit with the scouting party keyword. " (from the new Rules Reference)

    All tournaments in my area are 2:15 for a standard 800p. (plus give or take 5-10 extra minutes for setup, it varies). After a year of playin I had one, maybe two games that didn't reach turn 6. It was always surprising to me that so many people complain about time restrictions, as for me and others in my community reaching time limit is really rare.

    Update:
    Comms technicians now add an upgrade slot. I haven't tested this much so it could still be a bit buggy. I've increased the margin on the right where you can use your finger to scroll on mobile. Firefox mobile (and perhaps other mobile browsers, but I have found Chrome Mobile works correctly) thinks you're trying to drag and drop when you try to scroll with a finger. This will take a bit more time to come with the correct solution. I've heard feedback that the point totals can be a bit buggy sometimes so I've reworked how list point totals are calculated. I've been fiddling with how to do text exports so any feedback on how to format this is welcome. Here is an current example of the new text export: Edit: Command cards are now included when you share a URL to your list Compared to the previous builder's text export:

    The loss of a force slot is kind of an interesting problem now.  I assume you still want to go with Reflexes, but the other one.  Force Push is probably the right play, but Force Choke and Infiltrate feels downright dirty.
    Also, you can Spur with Scout-1 to give yourself suppression to protect against the likely first shot they get against him.

    I may be mistaken but doesn't the bounty hunter have to be alive at the end of the match to collect the bounty? Meaning that if the bounty hunter does get the mark the roles now switch to the rebel player hunting down the bounty hunter to prevent them from getting the VP.

    I've been theorycrafting some Hoth-themed lists and with the idea discussed in generals forum of combining MkII blasters' Fire Support with Leia's Coordinated Bombardment. This resulted in some fun list:
    Commanders: 
    - Leia Organa (90) + Improvised Orders (10) + Esteemed Leader (5) = 105
    Corps: 
    - 3x Mark II Medium Blaster Trooper (38) = 114
    - 3x Rebel Veterans (48) + Rebel Comms Technician (9) + Recon Intel (2) + HQ Uplink (10) = 207
    Special Forces: 
    - 2x Rebel Commandos Strike Team (16) + DH-447 Sniper (28) = 88
    Support: 
    - 3x Tauntaun Riders (90) + Tenacity (4) = 282

    Total: 796/800 

    Commands: Ambush (1), Coordinated Bombardment (1), No Time for Sorrows (2), Push (2), Covering Fire (3), Assault (3), Standing Orders (4) 

    The goal is to set up savage alpha strike with CB's RRBBBB shots, followed by snipers to pick off the leftovers. You get 7 orders and 3 dodges on Veterans out in first turn, so Vet's can just move and recover, setting up second turn, on which you play NTfS, pushing the Tauntauns (and giving them dodges) for an equally savage followup. Then, you just pray you have enough steam left to get the points on scenario

    Yep, I tend to exclude Chewie's card as well unless it's Brains & Brawn, an Rebel Heroes list don't have space for Leia  I really like OP's take on the list, I've been toying with my own and included Snipers, but cutting stuff for a second medic might be the way to go  I've made two lists, both featuring the core of:


    Luke Skywalker + Force Push + Force Reflexes + Emergency Stims = 193
    Chewbacca = 110
    Sabine Wren + Personal Combat Shield + Electro Grappling Line + The Darksaber = 165
    Rebel Troopers + 2-1B Medical Droid = 58
    2x Rebel Troopers = 80
    Rebel Commandos Strike Team + DH-447 Sniper = 44
    And then either

    a) 
    Jyn Erso + Duck and Cover + Emergency Stims + A-180 Config = 146 
    COMMANDS:  Son of Skywalker, Explosions!, Trust Goes Both Ways, My Ally is the Force, Complete the Mission, Legacy of Mandalore
    or
    b)
    Han Solo + Improvised Orders + Duck and Cover + Emergency Stims = 146
    COMMANDS: Son of Skywalker, Sorry About the Mess, My Ally is the Force, Symbol of Rebellion, Legacy of Mandalore, Change of Plans 


    The choice to the command cards seems to be the key, so in OP's list I'd change RotJ into Change of Plans

    I guarantee if you recorded all your results you could.  The problem with human perception is we are cut deeply by failure so those bad rolls will stand out in our mind more than the good ones, and much much more than the average ones.

    Yup, Legion with its objective driven gameplay seems nicely fit for a campaign. I guess the Downed AT-ST is actually a scaled-down mini-campaign, sort of "testing ground". To an extent, some of the Operations have at least a semblance of a narrative (Silent Hail, Blue Metal and Deep Jungle).

    That said, full scale campaign expansion would be awesome. I doubt they'll introduce new named characters (let alone with new models), even though it had happened in other SW games before (Lowhhrick in rpg, lcg and x-wing, Weiss in IA and Legion), as it might mess with their Disney licensing.

    Shanturin reacted to That Blasted Samophlange in Rebel Veterans - Efficiency Analysis   
    This is a very well thought out analysis that many will find useful.   I have some issues though, admittedly they are a personal case. - First any analysis like this that focuses on math doesn't jive with me.  Breaking down units to math and percentages isn't how I choose to play - I play what looks cool to me.  I feel it ruins the spirit of the game to choose which units you field based on a chart.  
    - Second, again slightly math related, but my dice rolls NEVER correlate to these percentages.   I can roll an inordinate amount of blanks on rolls that I shouldn't, and some how pull off impossible rolls at other times.  In this way, the dice gods mock me.   Like Odysseus angered Poseidon, so have I angered Polyhedra..
    All in all, you did a good job, but doesn't work for me.  While it is a quote that is specific to flying, I think there are many aspects that fit here:
    “You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take a boat in the air you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps her in the airwhen she oughtta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.”
    I feel the similar to Legion units.   No matter how many times people tell me Vader is bad, I still enjoy having him and he Does very effective things.
