    Keoki got a reaction from cnemmick in IA Continuity Project - Our Community-Focused Effort to Improve Skirmish   
    How exciting! Hopefully, this will breathe new life into the stale IA skirmish meta. This reminds me of a similar project when Wizards of the Coast discontinued their Star Wars Miniatures Game. As I recall, WotC approved the fan site to continue supporting their game. Cards were adjusted, and even new cards created for existing figures. It’d be great if FFG would back the IA Continuity Project, so all skirmish players would be on board. I’d love to see IA cards for some Legion figures, like Jyn Erso.

    I question hate -- nerdrage on the internet is a tempest in a teapot.
    I think people's reasons to dislike the movie will boil down to a handful of reasons:
    (1) They don't like the directions the characters have gone (e.g. Luke portrayal).  These are artistic choices; if you don't agree with them, you don't. I wouldn't have chosen the direction they took for Luke, personally, but I can respect it as a choice.
    (2) Plot logic. This is one of two areas where the movie breaks down for me personally -- when events don't make particular logical sense (the "why didn't they just hyperspace ahead of the Rebels", etc), or don't seem to fit well in the overall narrative structure (the Canto Bight arc for me).
    (3) Jarred out of disbelief. "Willing suspension of disbelief" is part of the contract of movie watching, especially in fantasy films like Star Wars. When the audience feels that contract has broken, they'll be frustrated -- and like the first item, this is pretty subjective.  TLJ has a number of scenes that potentially break disbelief; the ones that do it for me personally are the "can you hear me now" Poe jokes at the beginning, gravity bombs in space, and Mary Poppins Organa.
    I'm in the "good not great, like it don't love it" category FWIW.

    If anything, we should have a petition to remove Jar-Jar from canon!

    Agreed. While the First Order does get a very flimsy explanation in the EU, it really seems to be a matter of J.J. wanting to basically reset everything back to the glory days of the original trilogy. The First Order is more or less the Empire, while the Resistance is essentially the Alliance.

    I'm also hoping for a Snoke/First Order backstory. But I recall that Emperor/Empire didn't get a backstory for 20 years...
