    I think it more means units that have been designed, but not released or announced yet.  The newest RRG references wheeled and tracked vehicles, for example...and the original RRG references droids.  Both are things we have not seen announced yet.

    wild speculation, but droids and wheeled and tracked vehicles sounds an AWFUL lot like something very prequel-ish.

    I don't know who these guys are, are they important to the game at all? 

    You should probably listen just in case.  ?

    Shokupanman got a reaction from kac in Hyperspace Report Predictions?   
    Observation on this from someone who has worked in PR, Mass Media/Broadcasting, and Advertising for 20+ years

    FFG clearly lacks a coherent Public Relations strategy or anyone who even knows how to execute one.  I don't know if I would go so far as this statement does, but when it comes to community expectation management on the part of FFG, they fail often and hard.  

    Maybe they did have to word it vague to protect the X-wing "secret", (although I agree it was intentionally misleading) but is that a secret that is even worth protecting?  Say FFG says "big X-wing announcement at worlds" and there is a strong rumor circulating that X-wing 2.0 is going to be announced at Worlds.  You're talking to a largely captive and uber-passionate fanbase.  Who's gonna be pissed with that rumor?

    Instead, the PR amateurs at FFG played coy.  Anyone in the PR department who spent more than five minutes on their own forums could have seen there was a lot of chatter and hype for what OTHER games outside of X-wing were going to get at the Report, and to see that as a PR professional and let that go is a disservice to those fanbases.  Legion gets a lot of love, but it's really **** to see Armada fans constantly **** on by FFG in favor of the Golden Boy in X-wing. 

    There's also some historical precedence at work, I think.  In the past, when FFG has announced events talking about "products" they've always talked about multiple games and properties.  It's kinda bush league to set that precedent, and then say "What?!  We talked about "products"...SIX products!  They were all for the same game....but still..."

    What FFG does know is the audience they cater to, and they know we'll keep coming back again and again no matter how misleading or how poor they communicate with us.  I've seen a lot of people who say they play games other than X-wing say they took time off of work to watch the Hyperspace Report (because they love the games FFG makes and are passionate) and who felt shafted by the poor communications strategy of FFG.  From a purely professional standpoint, it's hard to disagree or say they don't have reason to feel shafted.  I know if I ran my PR operations in the past like FFG runs thiers currently, I'da been looking for a new job.

    Shokupanman reacted to NeonWolf in New Article - Prepare for Ground Assault   
    Also want to point out that both of the Recruitment Kit Operations state that all Recruitment and Ground Assault kit Operations are "Relaxed Tier" events.  We don't have the official Tournament Regs for Legion yet, but you can look at the TR's for X-Wing, Armada, or pretty much any other FFG game and see what that means.
    These kits are certainly a "here are our suggestions, but do what you want" thing.  We are probably going to have a Single-Day Escalation Event in the middle of our Rivals League at my FLGS, just because there isn't enough time to do two leagues between now and June when the first Ground Assault kit is supposed to come out.

    Shokupanman got a reaction from Big Easy in New Article - Prepare for Ground Assault   
    I like the idea of a rivals league, especially the part where you just figure out with your opponent when to play.  

    BUT

    I also like the aspect of being able to play against randomized people in the community.   Unfortunately, per the guidelines, it looks like that is a "one predetermined night a week" kinda thing.

    I hope FFG gives stores the flexibility to randomly pair people, but then let them play over the course of a week.

    Hello. I'm with The Jodo Cast. We cover all Star Wars Games. So obviously Legion falls under that banner. 

    We've done a few podcast episodes talking about Legion so far: 
    Legion One Week Later Legion News Roundup First Thoughts on Legion And naturally we'll continue talking about Legion for the foreseeable future because we're really digging it so far.
    And also a some video content. We're ABSOLUTELY going to be putting out more Legion videos, such as gameplay videos as well as livestreams in the time to come. Just working on getting our setup nice and pretty before we get cracking on that.
    So stay tuned.

    The general bloat and "gotta catch em all" nature of X-wing means I'm pretty much casual only with that game, at this point.  I don't have the desire to buy a bunch of ships I don't want to fly just because it has some gee-whiz upgrade cards in it, when Legion scratches the same itch without the unneccesary purchases.
