  1. And suddenly they’re talking about making more movies? This is not something that would be done to fix “brand fatigue“. Just sayin’.
  2. Since CW is a Core set in its own right, missing delivery date by a month or more will turn away many would-be new players. There were many people who were waiting for CW to get into Legion, and with this lengthy delay, they may find another place to dump their money. What can I say? People are fickle. Though Legion is doing well and this will not cause FFG to go out of business (by any stretch of the imagination), nor will Legion be ended from poor sales, the player base will not grow to what it could have been had the CW starter set been advertised as well as the original, and if it was released even close to the suggested release date. Many FLGS will undoubtedly have fewer players enter into Legion and in some areas it’s the difference between having someone or no one to play with. In many areas in the States there are robust amounts of players, so I’m sure it’s hard for you to imagine an area in the US or even around the world where it’s already near impossible to find someone to play. And I am fully aware of TTS, which is great, but I believe it is only a matter of time before it is shutdown and it is always nicer playin irl. It’s all point of view, so if you are lucky enough to be in a area with a lot of player, that’s great, but remember CW could have really helped other communities not so fortunate.
  3. That’s rad.😉😁 Still why not RZ or RZA Trooper. Everyone seems to love acronyms.😊 The Empire would need some kind of hazardous mission troopers for areas that are totally unsafe for humans. It’s a cool idea, in spite of the name.😎😁
  4. They certainly are radtroopers.😳😂 What were the writers thinking? Were they not old enough to have lived through the 80s?😂
  5. I agree with everything you said, except your third point. Legion has a lot of rules that were borrowed from X-Wing and other FFG games. This includes Suppression, which acts a lot like Stress. Instead of ships Legion contains Units, which would be the same as any military unit. Every unit in Legion comes with a card that explains any abilities with simple reminder text as well as stats which is also similar to X-Wing with upgrades that can be purchased as part of its point based system. Where Legion and X-Wing differ is that your movement is not hidden and each player takes turns moving one unit each, until all units in your army have activated, then you repeat for 5 more rounds after the first. Legion is an objective based game where even if you opponent has every unit left, and you only have one, you can still win the game. If Objectives do not give enough narrative, there are also free Operations that you can download from the Legion web page. If you want to learn more, you can download the Learn to Play Guide, which is also free, and it will explain everything in easy to understand terms. The Learn to Play rule book is 32 pages long, but has lots of pictures and about the last 10 pages are just fluff about the “hobby” aspect of the game, so it’s not a hard read.
  6. I’m sure sitting on thousands of units of CW does hurt FFG. There is a big investment in creating all those core sets and the longer it takes to get it to market, means no return on that investment. I’m by no means a financial expert, but I can guarantee this kind of delay (especially of a starter set) will hurt FFG bottom line. Also most investors don’t care about what game is out or which IP is used. They care about a quick and lucrative return on their investment and delays make them squeamish. FFG like any company relies on cash flow from investors. If returns are proven to be slow and don’t measure up to expected returns, again FFG will feel that pinch. Look at me sounding like I know what I’m talking about. 😂😜
  7. Umm... hate to tell you.... 😭😭 Now I just want my SSD and it was delayed cause of my stupid FLGS!😭😭
  8. Rakghouls. Lots and lots of Rakghouls. And when they damage any trooper mini, it becomes a Rakghoul. This would be awesome for Halloween.🧟‍♂️🎃
  9. Or if done correctly he still brings the fear, but the hero that he faces is obviously of a much higher caliber than the people he normally kills in seconds.
  10. I’m guessing you never fenced at a high level. And no, I don’t mean selling stollen goods.😁
  11. I think Star Wars Rebels did a good job too. You can feel how even an elite rebel team is pretty much useless against him. Sabine gets injured and a Jedi Knight and his Padawan are almost killed. The only thing they could do, is escape.
  12. Yeah as bad as FFG may be, I’ve heard some real nightmares about GW, but just because FFG isn’t as bad as the other guy, doesn’t mean they don’t need to fix their ****. Just sayin’.😌
  13. The thing that gets me is that the CW is a whole starter set and there will be many new players who will just be starting with this core. Does FFG have the same level of advertising for its release as the original core? Will there be a “release day” like the original had? I mean, we’re already delayed and there probably won’t be any hype and on top of that LFL has to interfere. Good job killing things before they start, but at least it was a team effort.🤨
  14. But I think the other missing SKU is taken up by the other alternate Obi sculpt Expansion (Europe only). So it means there will probably be 0-0-0/BT-1 in an imperial expansion, as part of LFL’s request to have more GCW stuff right now.
  15. That also belongs to the Imperial faction.🤪 Unfortunately, the Republic gets, “I don’t like sand...”😏😳
  16. Some of the delays (probably most) could also be laid at the feet of LFL. Apparently FFG was all set for CW, but Lucasfilm contacted them and said, “We want you to do some GCW era stuff for us.” And that’s why we have Operative Luke & Vader, earlier than FFG wanted. LFL just keeps screwing up, but I guess it’s like all other bad companies, it stinks from the head.
  17. Not sure what you mean? I have it on every device, and works like a charm. Edit: I spoke too soon. Apparently I can’t download the latest version on one of my devices, so I can’t get the latest database files.😢
  18. I thought one of the two missing SKUs was the resculpt Obi (only available in Europe). My guess is that the other missing SKU has to do with what Alex Davy eluded to in the Notorious Scoundrels interview. He said there was another droid couple coming. My guess is that it will be Empire or Empire/CIS compatible, and probably 0-0-0 and BT-1. Just a total guess. I like your guess better though. We definitely need more CW content and sooner, than later.😊 If anyone knows for sure (especially about the Obi sculpt), sound off.
  19. Unfortunately I ordered three core sets to try to save money in the long run (individual expansions are more expensive), so I’m totally screwed.🥺😭😢 Sorry, hard to deal wth when your temp is 102.🤒 Well guess I can’t play any way. Silver lining?
  20. So CW stuff isn’t out until the first week in Oct (probably), but is there anything coming out this month? It just seems that FFG was pumping out a one a month release for a little over a year with a fair amount of reliability, then suddenly they fell apart. What was supposed to come out in October, or how about November or December? It just seems like last year, we knew what was coming. It’s not just the releases that are all screwed up, but the articles. Sorry, I’m just salty about hearing my CW stuff I paid for months ago and was announced over a year ago, was just delayed again.🥺 And yeah this is another delay, remember Alex & Luke did mention that LFL contacted them and said, we need you to produce GCW stuff now, and to which they said, “ok, but we’re trying to put out some CW stuff right now.” I’m sure that at the very least LFL is the reason that Rex, Dooku, etc were so spaced out in release date from the core set release. Thanks LFL.😏🤨 Or did I miss something?😳
  21. I had that happen to me. I messaged someone on FB and we were all set for me to sell off some stuff, but the store owner was in the same FB group. He read me the riot act. But there is a simple answer. You can meet at a store, then walk to your car and make your deal. That’s what I ended up doing.😁 Don't blame the store owner though, there are a lot of legal issues if you sell in his store.
  22. CW content? I hope so.🤞 But just saying “content”, could also mean there will be plenty of GCW content. Afaik there is the Bunker, Luke & Vader, and there may be one more unannounced unit. I think there is one missing sku and guessing from Alex Davy’s comment on Notorious Scoundrels (“Another droid pair will be coming”), I’d say it’s probably 0-0-0 & BT-1 (that’s just totally a guess), but unless something changes all other CW content looks to be coming in early 2020. But I really hope I’m wrong about the CW stuff.🥺
  23. I just noticed that the corps upgrades for GCW are “on the boat”, whereas the CW corps upgrades still say “in development “. I thought these were all due before the end of the year? So with the change of the Escape Pod to 2020, and now probably even the CW corps upgrades, CW can expect nothing new until 2020? My current emotions (yep there are five and they kinda happen in stages) > 🤣🤬🥺😥😶
  24. Yeah so the only thing aside from what’s in the Core that CW players can expect for the next 4+ months is the upgrade corps heavies. 😭🥺😫
