    Either list would be fine, no need to do both.  You're trying to attract them in by demonstrating the game; if they like the mechanics, they can go buy the faction they want.  I would say it is advisable for the store to stock expansions for all factions, so new players can see the range of possibilities, but I don't think that's quite as necessary for demo games.

    I would probably remove aggressive tactics because half of the time you are going to be using Iden as nominated commander for her CC, and the other to give orders to the bikes... That already have surges on both offense and defense. Remember that one of Iden's CC makes her recover, so it might be worth it to take HQlink with her instead of Inferno. Seems ok to me other than that, as long as you have a game plan for which objetives you want to play and why.

    If they did that, you could just pick the unit that has just Infiltrated, which removes the "drawback."

    I think the original trilogy is still more iconic with the younger crowd, even if they are more inclined to also recognize clones and droids. I’m mid 30s though so what do I know about kids these days?

    Best thing to do is have models visible and ready to go. It helps if they are readily identifiable as Star Wars to grab even the casual fans. Things like Darth Vader and Stormtroopers over Shore or Death Troopers. Simple, small, balanced armies are also a good idea. Get them excited about playing Star Wars.

    Which is part of the reason why FFG got playtesters from the players who played at Worlds last year.

    That’s right guys. Inferno sucks and you shouldn’t bother buying any of them!

    I could see a niche of using the generic with with T21s to infiltrate and alpha strike with Iden using her 3 pip? but otherwise, yeah, I agree.

    Using extremely scientific and irrefutable methods, I have deduced that the Kom'rk cannot be 52.4 meters wide. Below we see Kanan next to Maul's Kom'rk Fighter. Kanan is 1.91 meters tall. Turn him on his side and he is just larger than the inner wing canard. Using the universal Kanan standard at the midpoint, we see that the ship is about 11.8 Kanans wide. Kanan's height of 1.91 meters times 11.8 Kanans equals a little under 22.54 meters. Even though the foreshortening would actually mean the Kom'rk is less wide than those 22.54 meters at the midpoint, let's round up the numbers to 12 Kanans and make Kanans height 2 meters. That would give us 24 meters wide. Even if we generously double the 24 meters to accommodate for the remaining wingspan, that is only 48 meters. Without fudging the number in favor of it being bigger, adding 5 Kanans per side for the wingspan, it seems to be more around 41.8 meters wide, and that is still being generous with the numbers.
    Again, these are extremely accurate and irrefutable scientific findings.

    When they say "A deep cut that no one has guessed",  I wonder how aware they are of what people guess? because at this point I think pretty much everything that could be guessed has been at some point since Legion launched. It wouldn't surprise me at all if this "deep cut" ends up being something that has been requested many times.

    Is the barc *really* that bad? Or is it rather just that clone trooper spam is more efficient because of token sharing? I’m not convinced in a vacuum that the barc is bad, like the t47, fleets, or Wookies are.

    I definitely feel for single faction players, or even just original trilogy only players.
    It’s a tough spot for ffg to be in: on one hand, they promise no out of faction buying. On the other, reprint sales aren’t what they hoped for as not as many new players have joined 2.0 as they thought might. So a lot of of us old timers don’t want to rebuy a ship for a generic upgrade, but we also want our new toys still. At the same time, there’s a long list of catch up for the other factions before they approach the original 3 in model counts.
    I don’t see how ffg can win really. Too frequent a card pack creates sku difficulty, too little and it’s the “hey why am I buying out of faction?” For me, I can’t buy out of faction if I have some of all, however in this case I’m only buying one of three seppies releases (Jango). I don’t really fly them much, and I will get way more value on tabletop with 2x Nimbus and 2x eta2 than I will one of each including droids.

    Besides that, the origin for the "single job species" like Bothans, Twi'leks, etc stereotypes are from the West End games RPGs actually, not Lucas. When they were fleshing out the universe, whatever job the species was mentioned doing/seen doing was "what they were good at." So female Twi'leks were slave dancers, Bothans were spies, Bith are musicians, etc. 

    @Nithorian Because the spies are named for the system they are from not the other way around? This is why Bothans don't HAVE to be a species, they could just as easily be a culture of humans. Nothing in the canon ties them to a specific appearance.
    How exactly does a planetary economy WORK if an entire species is predominantly a single job? Twi'leks have also been significantly changed since the old canon, with "slave dancer" now just one job they hold in the galaxy. Why are humans the only ones allowed to be flexible in their capabilities?

    I for one am happy to see large base turrets that aren’t the rebel falcon make an appearance. I don’t think they’re so cheap as to become super dominant but cheap enough to make a good splash in the local scene.
    Honestly I’m more worried about the raw beef you can get from scum large bases. Can take Han, Bossk, and Asajj in extended format with some upgrades. Going to be a ton of health to chew through.

    Epic is a reference to specific missions/battles.
    They didn’t make it epic only; they just removed it from organized play tournaments. It’s just like environment cards. Play it when you want to as a legal thing, or not. More options is better not worse.
     
    ^ This. It’s a fun toy for plastic spaceship battles, and it just so happens that ffg doesn’t feel it can be balanced in a tournament setting. That’s fine.
    Frankly, I hope we see more of that kind of content.
