    New maps and new article?

    AT-DPs are lame. I want the OG chicken walker in my life. Also, if we could get a fix for the SC2-M at the same time it would also be great. Imagine if we could get an upgrade that buffs Vehicles over figure cost 10. It would hit AT-ST, Weiss, and SC2-M while leaving DP and Jets where they're at.

    Excited for World's

    I can't wait to meet up with everyone! I'm also not looking forward to an 80% Spectre meta, but that is what FFG has decreed to be the case so \_(ツ)_/

    I just want a fixed AT-ST!
  4. They were both in rotation for that Worlds. Also, don't forget that Efficient Travel affects ALL of your units, not just the one unit that Jump Jets or Fleet Footed get through. I don't think the card has a place now, but it was a great play in that context.
  5. I actually had an enemy use this against me to great effect on the Dianoga map at Worlds 2016. I had used a Bantha to clog up his path back to his deployment zone to prevent him scoring crates, but then he played this and waltzed right through my Bantha. It was crazy effective, and i think that was my closest match in Swiss.
  6. Hello everyone! Sorry for the long absence. We are back with a discussion of the baddest droids the Empire has to offer: the Sentry Droids! These versatile bots make an excellent backbone to a squad, as long as you can keep them safe. https://www.twintroopers.com/podcast/2018/5/episode-46-sentrydroids
  7. Hello everyone! This week on Twin Troopers, we go through every deployment card in the new wave and talk about our first impressions of them. We're both really excited about the new possibilities presented by Tyrants of Lothal. https://www.twintroopers.com/podcast/2018/5/episode-42-tyrantsoflothal

    Desperately seeking Boba

    The fact that or would be the smart thing to do guarantees it will never happen ?
  9. UTINNI! This week on Twin Troopers: @dietz057 and I discuss Scum's super-support: the Jawa Scavenger. Bargain and Harass your way across the battlefield with this super well balanced little unit. https://www.twintroopers.com/podcast/2018/5/episode-41-jawa
  10. Everyone join us in raising our gaffi sticks and giving a Tusken War Cry! That's right, this episode is about the Tusken Raider, a tough unit from the good old days of Twin Shadows. https://www.twintroopers.com/podcast/2018/5/episode-40-tuskenraiders-g9w7t25-ej43z-hs-mlspd-essks-a6n8-5kazl

    HK’s vs weequay’s

  12. This week on Twin Troopers: Eric and I discuss the biggest deal (judging by model volume) in IA: the Rancor! What are the best ways to use this apex predator? How do you account for its weaknesses? Will its best friends be tiny little kittens? https://www.twintroopers.com/podcast/2018/5/episode-39-rancor-g9w7t25-ej43z-hs-mlspd-essks-a6n8

    RIP Rebel Faction

    Perhaps that's the point? These sniper battles were boring as heck to large portion of players. Perhaps Doubt is too much and Rebels are actually D-E-D dead, maybe it's too little and people will continue to play Hunter Snipers anyway, but the fact that "step out, annihilate a figure in one shot, step back" is no longer the most viable play style (at least in theory) in the game is a GOOD THING. Also, NOBODY HAS PLAYED WITH THIS CARD YET. We've yet to see 3 different figure packs (one of them Rebel) and who knows how many command cards. Let's hold off on the Chicken Littleing until after the meta has hada chance to balance out post release.
  14. Ladies and gentlemen, we are proud to present part 2 of the History of Imperial Assault. In this episode, we explore the state of the meta from the release of Jabba's Realm and its revolution in Skirmish effectiveness to today. Enjoy! https://www.twintroopers.com/podcast/2018/5/episode-38-history-of-ia-g9w7t25-ej43z-hs-mlspd-essks-h2at7-fnpdx

    Twin Troopers 37: History of Skirmish, Part 1

    I hadn't considered the second eStorm card because I had the promos. Good point.
