    Solo: A Star Wars Story [SPOILER THREAD]

    So Republic = Dictatorship? I don't remember that from my Civics class.

    Solo: A Star Wars Story [SPOILER THREAD]

    I do know this can be a common issue with prequels. You already know some of who lives and who dies, and what happens to them, so the mystery is lost. (The prequel trilogy suffered a bit from this.) That doesn't mean you can't make good prequels; just that you have to make them hold interest differently from how the originals did.

    The Imperials in 2.0

    Doesn't everyone? Play the very first mission on Hard. Complete the Primary objectives and feel like a big-shot. Then three Escort Shuttles pop in and remind you that you're still flying an easy-to-hit, delicate, unshielded craft.

    Solo: A Star Wars Story [SPOILER THREAD]

    Part of it is that I just don't go to the movies that often anyway. If I were going to the theater and just trying to decide which movie to see, Solo would probably rank pretty high. But it just doesn't have the appeal to draw me in to a special trip just for it. Of course, I also haven't really seen any of the trailers or anything, so all I've really seen of it are the movie posters with Guy-Who-Kinda-Looks-Like-Young-Billy-Dee-Williams and Guy-Who-In-No-Way-Resembles-Harrison-Ford, but all the same, I'm happy waiting until it comes out on Blu-Ray and I can borrow it from my library. I'm glad other people are enthusiastic about it, and again, I'm sure I'll like it when I do eventually see it, but "like" and "get excited about" aren't the same thing. Now, make a movie about Wedge, and I'm there!

    The Imperials in 2.0

    So Interceptors are just upgraded Fighters? Can't we come up with some way to differentiate them more? Like maybe give them shields? And an ion cannon? And a third wing strut? And flip the panels out? And call it a TIE Defender?

    The Imperials in 2.0

    Though I guess the rear turret needs a bit more power to really be an Escort Shuttle. JV-7 Title When an attack from your rear arc hits, cancel all die results and do 5 damage to the target.

    Solo: A Star Wars Story [SPOILER THREAD]

    Honestly, this is the first Star Wars movie released in my lifetime that I haven't had any urge to see in theaters. If some friends went, I'd join them, and I'm sure I'd enjoy it, but I just haven't heard anything about it good enough to compel me not to just wait until it comes out on video.

    The Imperials in 2.0

    Staple: Lambda-shuttle. I may even have to buy/make an Escort Shuttle model for it, now that it has a rear arc! (Though, probably without the hideous paint-job it had in the games.) Not Sure: TIE Defender. My favorite part of flying them in 1.0 was the TIE/D title. Without that, I'm not convinced they'll be as much fun to fly. Wild Card: TIE Punisher. Not sure what my builds for them will look like yet, but I tried hard to get them to work in 1.0, and I'm pretty sure I will make them work in 2.0.

    Yet another FO and Resistance Faction speculation thread

    Maybe they'll make a FO Gunboat using the Missile Boat model.

    Corran Horn, no force ability????

    During the Galactic Civil War, he wasn't piloting an E-Wing. By the time those came around, I'm pretty sure he was training his Force powers.

    It's been a while since I read the stories with Dengar. Was there any indication that his ship was super-awesome?

    2.0 Question

    I guess if we're going strictly for lore, the Imperials should lose anytime the Rebels field a unique pilot.

    2.0 Question

    Ooryl? Piggy? Runt? Not all pilots need be human, you know...

    Tie Strikers Seem Good

    So, the FO TIE Striker will introduce a TIE slot? Interesting design choice.

    Tie Strikers Seem Good

    Yeah, but have you seen the movies? Those First Order clowns need all the help they can get.
