    Scum would be the biggest group to gain from the idea of faction cards. A lot of the pilots already have the Syndicate name on the pilot cards so why not make a generic title for each one giving them a boost if you have multiple of them or if they are a wingman to a unique pilot from that syndicate. The best example of this I can give right now is Kath Scarletts ability: While you perform a primary attack, if there is at least 1 friendly non-limited ship at range 0 of the defender, roll 1 additional attack die. Now if you modify this just a little bit and call it something like Binarye Pirate Gang and give it an ability like: If a friendly ship within range 0-1 of you with the Binarye Pirate Gang title has a target lock on the defender, you may reroll one blank result. This would separate part of Scum faction into its own little sub-faction and make list building become more thematic.

    hmm, faction cards could actually be a good way to create both restrictions and benefits for certain ships. Maybe Black Sun or the Hutt's need to be fleshed out a bit for scum

    This so much! I don’t even play epic but I need a Hammerhead on my desk. Also more stuff from Rogue One is always a good thing.

    Announce a new faction that comes out of Scum that is the equivalent of the First Order/Resistance coming out of the Empire/Rebels. Call it something like "Allies and Aliens" or "Planetary Governments" or something and make the Chiss ships, the Hapan ships, the Ssi-Ruuk droid ships, Corporate Sector Authority ships, etc and allow some Scum cross over. Then make "Squadron" cards that give certain benefits/restrictions for only taking certain ships in a list. This squadron card idea would also allow other factions to get their famous squadrons(Rogue Squadron, the 181st, etc) Having a "good guy scum faction" could also really open up design space.

    JJFDVORAK reacted to patox in StarSpeeder 1000/3000 3D-printed model + pilot cards   
    During our first excursion on the Star Tours Starspeeder 3000, there were some mechanical difficulties. We ended up shooting our way out of an Imperial blockade, then we got sidetracked and found ourselves in the middle of the Boonta Eve Classic on Tatooine! That Sebulba, he's always up to his hijinks. Then we hyperspaced into the Anoat Asteroid Belt where we were hunted down by Boba Fett. He dropped a Seismic Charge on us. We hyperspaced again and discovered the construction site for a large spherical imperial mining station, which we promptly destroyed. Finally, we arrived with the Rebel Fleet. I was the Rebel spy.
    The Rebellion brought us back to the Star Tours main hub and we decided to take our chances with another Starspeeder 3000. Once again, the ship had technical difficulty. We hyperspaced into a land battle on Hoth and then to Coruscant where a Separatist fleet was attacking. We landed on Coruscant and decided to go to the local canteen to book passage with a nerf hereder and a wookie.
    Star Tours some new repair pit droid. We're not flying with them again.

    I am confused by what exactly you think can reliably do this that doesn't take an entire lists worth of janky setup and poor positioning on your part to pull off
    Lando has 2 dice + 1 for R1 + 1 for trick shot + 1 for title (due to stress from Asajj) gets you up to 5 dice. Greedo(?) lets you change 1 to a crit.
    But in order to pull that off the following had to happen
    You are I4 or I5 and lost initiative They got you in arc at R1 They put a rock between you (again at R1 which ain't easy...) They got you in arc of Asajj and you decided to take the stress instead of discarding a green token They saved a TL from the turn before combined with a focus this turn to reliably generate 4 hits At that point I kind of feel like the problem maybe isn't 2.0... that's a perfectly setup shot and they pretty much deserve their pile of dice and crit

    This is my position pretty much. The crew I mostly play with are still not converted at all, and I'm usually one of the last ones to pull the trigger; always thinking like a sniper makes one wait till most all the other pieces in the field move first. 
    True, true..... I wish they would have just sold them in small card packs for each ship akin to baseball cards, at a very reasonable price if possible. Sell the damage deck, rulers, dice and templates as a set, sans ships. Starting with a few squads you love would have been a better entry level way to invest, IMO.
     
    ...and @Icelom, it does look like fun! Firesprays look nasty....or sound nasty, right @Brunas?

    Honestly, out of all the possible approaches they could have gone with, this one probably interests me the least.  But, we'll reserve judgment until we see how things go.  I just hope "serious" means, "more like the films than like the cartoons" and not "dark and edgy".

    Oh, sure.  Dozens of times.  No matter how often it happens, losing a loved clone never becomes any easier.
    I do seem to vaguely recall him, now that you mention it.  Still, it's easier to forget grief when you have a blaster in your hands and a job to do.  When you're in a long, lonely jump through hyperspace?  That's when it hits you.  Sometimes, it even gets so bad that you just want to end it all by committing spacercide (intentionally hypering through a star, black hole, or other massive object).  If I've seen it once I've seen it a hundred times.

    Have you ever experienced the death of the original from which you were cloned?  It's not something you get over quickly.
    Sorry, my memory's not that great.  I don't remember Boba in the Clone Wars (assuming you're talking about the series).

    Also, poor Boba probably still hadn't gotten over his "dad"'s death by that point, and was probably sobbing about not wanting to fly alone until it started getting really awkward, so Han didn't have much choice but to agree.

    JJFDVORAK got a reaction from SabineKey in The Star Wars Resistance Aces and should the be in this game or a new one?   
    I like the idea of the 6 ship box with minimal pilots and tons of upgrades. The issue I see with it though is that these six ships are all Resistance (I think) and FFG usually balances the releases so they would have to have a similar number of ships for at least the first order. But maybe not. Who knows. Also the "Rally Mode" is a fun idea and I would love to see it happen, but I don't think it will. We'll see.

    I'm not sure this is true when it comes to fandom acronyms, and it's definitely not true for SW movie title acronyms.  TPM, AotC, RotS, RotJ, TFA, and TLJ, all include the "t" from"the". Also LotR(Lord of the Rings)  and TOS, TAS, and TNG(Star Trek: The Original Series, The Animated Series, and The Next Generation) all include the "t" from "the". I've always seen it as HotAC as well. It's not an issue at all but it is kind of interesting.
