    Each Ion token on a vehicle when it activates removes one of the 12 regular actions a vehicle potentially gets over 6 turns. If the ion units wait till after the vehicle acts, they can guarantee that the vehicle basically skips its next turn. A single unit can potentially neuter the vehicle by firing after them on one round, then acting first the next round.
    Every vehicle in the game costs substantially more than a trooper with an ion weapon:
    AT-RT (55 base, 75/80/85 with weapon, up to 100 with a jammer), Speederbikes (90 base, up to 105 with jammer), Airspeeder (175 base), AT-ST (195 base). Even if we assume that’s only half value for removing half an action, we are looking at 22.5 to 97.5 value return from hitting a vehicle, each time.
    Ion is worth a lot because, properly deployed it will make a big difference.

    I can see a droid run Expansion. 
    ‘These aren’t the droids we’re looking for’
    Expansion comes with 4-5 droid tokens.
    Taken an incidental action to flip a droid token. 1/5 is the droid you’re looking for. Once found, action to claim it. it reduces your speed by 1.
    Whoever has control of the droid at the end of round 6 wins.

    I think a jetpack trooper expansion is entirely possible but I think it would be more like a special forces unit than a full Corps unit.

    Kojib reacted to Ailowynn in Armor, or the soon to be lack there of   
    I think you’re thinking about it backwards. You’re going off the assumption that Armor should be impenetrable except against very specialized units. Rather, Armor is generally pretty possible to work around, but it’s very strong against units that don’t have that capability. 
    This is a good thing. It means that strategic planning is rewarded; if you can get your vehicle into a fight against a bunch of basic troopers, you’ll steamroll them. Likewise, if you let your vehicle get focused by Impact units, you’ll lose it quickly. This also incentivizes a good balance in list building. You don’t want too many vehicles in case you come up against an Impact-heavy army, but you also don’t want to spend too many points on Impact, a quality that is useless against trooper units. And, most important, it avoids the rock-paper-scissors meta. If there weren’t ways to conveniently work around Armor in list building, you would end up with Impact heavy lists hard countering vehicle lists, which hard counter trooper heavy lists, which hard counter Impact heavy lists; so win or loss would more or less be determined by matchup.

    I have to disagree, there.  Lando betrayed people once, and it was to try and save a city.  Hondo betrays everyone, many times, all for "ain't I a stinker" reasons, and yet for some reason the empire hasn't killed him, and the rebellion still puts its trust in him.
    If I'd compare him to anyone, it would be Lucy from Peanuts, and Charlie Brown is everyone else in the Star Wars galaxy.

    In short, yes. You’re right. I’ve played a couple games (not many) but at least two of them have been won/lost based on a slew of very good/vs/very bad dice roles in succession.
    -BUT Cover. Cover as a mechanic is so important in this game as it is not random. It is definite. If you aren’t playing with enough pieces of cover on the map (and I mean cover, not just LOS blocking terrain), and if there isn’t a standard minimum amount of cover in all tournament games, then this game will start to fade due to the random nature of the dice. 
    -That’s not to say you can’t test your luck and try to make a daring move out in the open to get to a particular position. That’s risky. The dice may be with you or against you. That’s where a huge part of the fun in this game comes from to me. If that pays off it’s gonna we great. If it doesn’t, it’s your own fault for making a risky move and not hedging your bets behind a barricade. 
    -Also worth mentioning as more mechanics come out that allow for synergy on the tabletop, these random elements become less of a problem and will have slightly less impact on the winning or losing of a game.
     
    Guardian as a keyword is A good example. If I understand it correctly, if Leia (for example) gets a horrendous defence role, a unit next to her can make checks to try and take the brunt of some of that damage.

    Between the commander system and the mission/objective /condition setup, I think this game brings tons of new elements to the genre. I dont understand any saying this game doesn't do anything new. But as far as luck goes, the key is to tip the scale with solid strategy.

    This is true. Finding the right terrain makes the game.  I wish there was more guidance here.
    In imperial assault the terrain is made for you. I like the freedom here but my games so far have suffered from inexperience with the rules and too little or too rigid terrain

    Yeah I expect as more upgrades and different keywords are introduced luck will not be quite as much of a factor as it is right now. At the moment, the only ways to mitigate luck are aim tokens, dodge tokens, and cover/positioning in general. There's definitely room for Gear and Personnel upgrades that can affect dice rolls in different ways (i.e. a free action that you can exhaust to change one die face to a hit/crit/block)
