  1. Unfortunately, FFG designed Legion to use a different scale and size matters in that game so you really can't use Imperial Assault figures. My biggest reason for not getting into Legion was not wanting to rebuy and paint a bunch of figures I already own.
  2. Yeah I think there's hope for this game via the app and new campaign expansions. I wouldn't be surprised if the skirmish was dropped entirely and the game was converted to just a campaign board game. Less play testing and moving parts for them. It's a shame tho because the skirmish is a really good part of this game despite it's flaws (which could be easily fixed). If we are lucky maybe well get a cards only expansion pack to fix skirmish models, but i doubt it.
  3. We always see a resurgence when a new set drops and prize support is available.
  4. I tried to get you all the answer we deserve although it wasn't the one we wanted.
  5. Our community seems to be a direct ebb and flow based on FFG's overall support of the game. When a new set drops players are very excited and we have weeks of good size events, especially when there is current prize support. Unfortunately, waiting on previous sets and now waiting on convergence it's clear after 4+ months with no new product our community suffers. It also doesn't help that we haven't received any new prize support since quarter 3 of 2018. FFG missed Quarter 4 in 2018 and nothing has dropped for Quarter 1 in 2019 and that quarter is almost over. Gamma also just wrapped up and reported Destiny in a downward trend. No doubt lack of support and communication from FFG is what is driving down interest in the game. I love it personally and we'll continue to do our best to support it and the community but we aren't getting any help and it's frustrating.

  8. Thank you so much for coming I'm glad you had a good time and I hope everyone enjoyed the event got value for their time.
  9. Honestly it depends on the number of players. The event will be capped at 64 players & 6 rounds but we aren't near that. But even if we were that would be a 4.5 hour event max.
