    Compared with Tarkin who is probably going to have at least 1 ship that either can't or doesn't want his token that turn, yes.

    He has no intention of resolving a Nav command.

    Pro - Armada is still supported
    Con - Potentially scares off casuals, who won't have a release for effectively 1.5-2 years.  Also, I left 40k for good when large models (fliers) and super vehicles (baneblades) became standard fare and not just IA, special occasion-only choices.  Chose not to come back to 8th when I saw Titans and other absurdly large models on the table.
    Ugly - Even as a primarily Imperial player, I still have no intention of paying $200 for a single model. Oh well.

    That attitude and view of the world is why I consider every marketing and sales person I interact with to be a lying POS until proven otherwise.  Even the ones who work at my company.

    Yeah, I wasn't lumping you in with the marketeers. You were presenting a possible perspective from that worldview.

    Ran some simulations.  Gladiator I with OE and APT, rerolling hits aggressively to maximize crit chance.
    Side arc
    4 Black Dice: ~5.9 damage  (~90% crit chance)
    3 Black Dice: ~4.57 damage  (~82% crit chance)
    Front arc
    2 Black, 2 Red: ~4.68 damage  (~68% black crit chance)
    2 Black, 1 Red: ~3.94 damage  (~68% black crit chance)
     
    So EWS saves you about 1.5 damage on the side arc and about 0.75 damage from a front arc.
     
     
    Edit: Reran with ACMs instead of APTs, just to see. 
    BBBB: ~6.8
    BBB: ~5.4

    BBRR: ~5.37
    BBR: ~4.61

    The other benefit is going speed 2 while still being able to trigger QBTs against any other ships going speed 2+.

    Guessing that the 2 extra dice + being able to use Leading Shots on the side arc shot outweighs the downside of opponent being able to use a redirect?

    Valen's ability is what Vader should have had, if we're going for that kind of effect.  Giving everyone escort means your other escorted ships suddenly become vulnerable.

    Valca got a reaction from DerFurst in Instructor Garbage   
    Can we agree that Instructor Goran is not good?  His ability only kicks in a distance 1-2, which means you're likely defending against an attack from a heavy enemy squadron ball.  Which means they're probably packing Intel, if they're willing to engage you near your ships.  Which means Goran has no effect.

    c)Someone doesn't understand the intricacies of a rules interaction and insists on an FAQ instead of learning the rules.  Seen that here from time to time. Not often, fortunately.
