    It is with great pleasure that I can finally release my recent pet project out into the wild: a playtested, standardized 500-pt, 75-minute format for Legion. I see people asking all the time what they should do below 800 points, and with this guiding document I think we've got something really solid both to bring some novelty to veteran players and help draw in newer players.
    Please let me know your thoughts - I try to keep all my posts in one thread so it's not too spammy, but I really like this format and would love to hear from forum-goers about what they think!

    For beginners/casual play, this is a solid basis.  I do tend to agree with @Squark somewhat.  My main issue is in the static deployment zones. 
    I'd prefer to see Disarray and Major Offensive adjusted to fit a 3x3 area and then adjust Fog of War to take into account those set ups (divide the board along the diagonal for Major Offensive and make four separate quadrants of "no fire" zones for Disarray).
    Then roll off for Deployment using a black attack die: Hit is Battle Lines, Blank is Major Offensive, Crit/Surge is Disarray.
    I'm going to try out the format this weekend and toy around with added deployment options and report back with how it goes.

    I think it's a good start, but I feel that removing the battle Card system sacrifices one of Legion's better innovations. Allowing both players a way to exercise a degree of control over the battlefield and objective feels a lot more engaging than just rolling a dice to determine mission. You'd probably need to adapt the existing cards to create a new deck, sort of like what Operation: Take the Hill did (But randomized instead of a chart, of course).
     
    Edit: Just thought I'd make my actual thoughts a little clearer, since I realized I kind of glossed those over; I've been hoping the community or FFG would release a more refined format for small games for a while. I look forward to seeing how this develops.

    New rules explainer up! If you're unfamiliar with Tanks and Landspeeders, this whole article is chock full of information for you. If you're a bit more experienced, you might want to scroll down to the two fringe case explainers: the double-reverse Palp bomb conundrum, and what happens when your bounty target dies in a vehicle. Enjoy!

    groggydog got a reaction from Savate in ANNOUNCEMENT: Impact X archives now at Imperial Discipline   
    Hi everyone,
    As part of everything that has been going on within the community, Nick and LJ have decided not to renew the legionimpact.com domain. Instead, they've asked that I archive the general articles and unit analysis from Impact X on Imperial Discipline, which I've done. Gathering Legions will live on as a separate project in the future. While I'm sad to see Impact X go I'm happy that I can preserve the extremely insightful content they created, and have tried to make the distinction clear between their content and my own on my website.
    As far as I know, the original domain should be active for the next several days, and then should officially expire sometime next week.

    This week I've got a somewhat atypical post in which I bare my soul a bit and talk about how I went 0-5 in Invader League season 3 with a stubbornly off-meta list, and what I learned about failure and the meta along the way.

    As promised, the thrilling conclusion of my 0-5 Invader League run! Inside I talk a bit about my last two games, as well as a whole host of things I learned about the meta and my own playstyle along the way. I put a lot of heart into this one, so I do hope that you enjoy. Thanks for all the kind messages yesterday, too - I really do appreciate them all.

    groggydog reacted to TalkPolite in Invader League Season 3 Registration Begins Soon!   
    What started as small skirmishes has evolved to pitched battles, and now a war that threatens to envelop the entire galaxy. Times are grim, and new forces join the carnage as the INVADER LEAGUE begins again. Fight to secure peace in the Galactic Empire, or bring hope to the darkest corners of the Galaxy!
    The Invader League is a free Star Wars: Legion Tournament, played through the Star Wars Legion Tabletop Simulator Mod. Participants play a series of 4 Round Robin games, followed by a Single Elimination bracket for the top two players from each group. The games are on pre-determined maps, with Battle Cards chosen by the players before each match. All games are at the 800 point value, and armies features wave one content, as well as unreleased units. Each Invader League season takes about two months to complete. Prizes are given to the top players, which are generously donated by Legion Community Members.
    The second season of the Invader League was the largest gathering of Star Wars: Legion players to date. This season promises to continue the previous growth with even more players, an improved League website, and a large prize pool sponsored by Legion Community members. Prizes are given to the top players, which are generously donated by Legion Community Members.
    Season 3 features new maps that have been created by community member in the recent "Battle Lines" Map creation contest. New units such as Sabine and Bossk will also be seen on the battlefield. Lastly, the League website has been overhauled to make it easier for players to interact with each other and see how season is progressing.
    Season 3 registration is approaching! Players who are looking to register for Season 3 should create an account on this Invader League website, and be prepared for registration on the 17th of March. The tournament is hosted on the Legion Discord, which can be found here: https://discord.gg/c5ETGCp
    Please visit http://www.invaderleague.com/ to register for a profile and sign-up on Sunday! We look forward to seeing everyone for another great season. May the force be with you!
