    Or a future ETA-2.
    Republic offers a lot of Anakins. 
    Wonder how long he'll be the faction's only I6. Forever?

    Luminara (I4, 2 Force):
    While a friendly ship at range 0-2 is defending, if it is not in the attacker's bullseye, you may spend 1 Force. If you do, that ship may change 1 crit]result to a hit, or one hit result to a focus.
    Bariss (I4, 1 Force):
    While a friendly ship at range 0-2 is attacking, if the defender is in its's bullseye, you may spend 1 Force. If you do, that ship may change 1 hit result to a crit, or one focus result to a hit.

    Cut Resistance, and I5 is not particularly more common than 2, 4, or 6; and 1/3 are not all that far behind.
    That's still an ace-heavy meta (Vader is worth almost 2 Tempests, so with an imaginary perfectly balanced TIE Advanced you'd expect almost twice as many I2 as I6, etcetc) but the massive spike at I5 is gone and I6 falls from second place to third.
    Conclusion: Lu'lo costs as much as a Black Squadron Scout and six points less than a Zealous Recruit

    Partisan, Dutch, Wedge, Biggs costs $90. Boba, Han, Teroch- $90. Vader, Vermeil, Gideon, Countdown- $90. 
    Every list costs around a hundred bucks on top of the coreset.

    The Passive Sensors upgrade card from the French preview is just how the lock action should work by default.

    svelok got a reaction from Kleeg005 in Whats the best Scum list you have faced recently?   
    Scum has a hard time with Beef Meta, because Scum's only Beefy ships are 2 attack dice or 66+ points.
    Scum also has a hard time with RZ-2 A-Wing meta, because Fangs and Fearless. 
    Boba, Han, Fenn, Teroch, Seevor are all good. Cheap coordinate is still good too. 
    We'll have to see how the new factions shift the meta. If nothing changes, CIS and Republic add front arc ships Fangs can Faceoff and acey ships Boba can rear arc, so just by diluting the stuff Scum has bad matchups against they might help it out.

    Yeah, there's really no right answer to that. Somebody loses no matter how they try to do it.
    No new cards in OT ships? Sad for people who want the new cards.
    New cards in OT ships? Sad for veterans who don't want to re-buy.
    No new cards? Sad for everyone, new stuff is fun, game stagnates.
    Cards sold directly, in some kind of card pack? Sad for retailers, who have to make space for additional SKUs that have much smaller margins.
    With second edition, the conversion kits and squadron packs ensure everybody is caught up in general, but it still remains to be seen how second edition shakes out long term. It's worth mentioning that Armada has the same business model X-Wing 1.0 had, but never forced players to card-chase as hard as 1.0 did, so there's a sliding spectrum of options here and not just a hard binary. 
    I hold out a fool's hope for a Kihraxz box with, like, 3 Config options reflecting how customizable their lore says they are.
    Yeah. And remember, the X-Wing development cycle is like a year and half or two years long - eg, they said on stream that wave 3 was finalized and put into production six months ago. 
    Which just means a lot of stuff we have now, was designed a long time ago, with knowledge of other stuff being designed that we still don't know about.

    Yes, but also, no: the rules limit each ship to only one bonus attack per round.
