    History of Past Release Dates and Spoiler Articles

    Updated. Crazy to think I originally started this list just over 2 years ago! Can't wait for more stuff to come out - hopefully it doesn't track 1:1 to HotE schedule, but if that's as bad as it gets that's not horrible

    RollforDamage Uscru Map Breakdown

    Number of players hasn’t been published that I know of. Odds are good between 100-128. https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/news/2018/2/5/the-2018-may-world-championships/ specifics for IA here:

    Updated the list and TL:DR

    Maybe a sticky on each IA product page that said - “unavailable through FFG - purchase through your local game store!” Oh wait, that makes too much sense for FFG to clearly communicate something... I love this company, but can’t stand how bad in general communication is.

    Yeah I’m gonna update this soon. To much time spent prepping for worlds and such. But I’ll get it next time I sit down at a computer

    It happened, we got an expansion

    I think I’m missing something here: does her command card or skirmish card even mention style tokens? I get it if someone doesn’t like more and more tokens for campaign - but she doesn’t seem to use style tokens for skirmish. And this is the skirmish forum. It sure looks like they translated style tokens into the surges rolled = x thing. Which seems pretty neat to me - we’ll see if it is in practice. And loku and Saska (and almost every hero before jabbas realm) are practically unusable because they weren’t priced right/health pointed right/or dice powered right - not because of tokens - as far as skirmish. It apparently took awhile to figure out the power curve and get most new figures onto it. Is it perfect? Nope. Is it a lot better than everything bespin and before? Yep. What’s bad in Jabba’s realm? The rancor? A few slightly expensive things? But almost everything has a place. What about HotE? Clawdites little expensive or not enough health? Or too little synergy currently? Ok - but not hopeless figs. Ahsoka/maul a little hard to synergize with. Jarrod is arguably the most disappointing to me - but he might be good combined with tress for brawler synergy. But the last two boxes and the Jawa wave have introduced some of the best stuff in the game. And the more toys we get the more options there are to smash together and find new synergies. I mean come on, someone has currently turned MHD into a thing and almost everyone has written that figure off since he came out. So I’m just glad we got another announcement and looking forward to more info

    R2D2's Lucky

    I really want to understand this, but none of the arguments make sense. The only thing that makes sense to me here as that the language/terms need to be cleaned up because of this interaction. So you’re saying tough luck and heightened reflexes do not remove a blank “result” from the defense results pool? That somehow, the undefined term “results” (please show me where “results” is defined as a term) doesn’t/can’t include a “blank” “result”. But yet blank is a face on the dice and is a result. How is blank not a symbol or a result - when even R2 references blank as a result? Cards as written call blank a result...thanks R2... It could be cleaned up by changing the wording on heightened reflexes etc to “remove that die from the appropriate pool”. Why doesn’t that card say that instead of what seems more clunky in “remove its results from the defense results”? Or specifying “symbols and accuracy” from the defense results? This really just seems like an ongoing circle of English breaking down in the way the cards are written and terms (“results”) aren’t defined. (Again unless they are clearly somewhere). I honestly don’t care where it lands - but it needs an official explanation/Ruling that is publicly available. The last thing we need is someone arguing over this in a game at a tourney because one guy did some reading and another didn’t and there wasn’t an official answer to go to (like OTL and Collateral Damage - thank you FAQ!)

    R2D2's Lucky

    I lean towards where he’s going with this. Both cards expressly work with “results”. One expressly calls “blank” a “result” and the other expressly says to “remove (1 defense die’s) results from the defense results. Blank either has to be a result for both cards or not a result for both cards, doesn’t it? Or something needs to be tightened up in the wording. But IF a blank for R2 somehow overrides heightened reflexes (for some reason - whether there is really an existing rule OR else a final decision/ruling that Just states that it is the way it will be regardless) - that means R2 is actually better off rolling a blank result on the white die because it’s immune to being stripped (for some reason) by heightened reflexes and tough luck whereas a true dodge rolled would be eliminated by those cards (assuming the necessary conditions of course). And that sounds like it’s not the way the ability is supposed to work - meaning - I don’t think Lucky should make a blank stronger than a dodge but was intended to make a blank equal to a dodge for all intents and purposes.

    Fully Armed and Operational Podcast ep. 4

    That’s awesome! is there a token holder in there too?
  14. Masterchiefspiff

    I will make my own with sabacc and Twi'lek Dancers...

    It’s not that skirmish “can’t” use them. It’s that there isn’t anything bringing them in yet. No characters or cc’s. I don’t think any of the HotE maps reference shield tokens but I haven’t read them all. Some day there will probably be shield tokens in some skirmish Stuff.

    Cards of IA world champions

    Yeah far as I’ve been able to put together it is limited to attachments/skirmish upgrades and command cards. And feeding frenzy is currently the only released Worlds winner designed card. DT’s two aren’t released yet far as I’ve been able to tell.
