    beardxofxdeath got a reaction from Caimheul1313 in Operative Darth Maul with Sith Probe droid confirmed   
    Legion is not much bigger. Even the 800 point games are more like skirmishes compared to other tabletop wargames. I like the idea of a scum faction in general. What I dislike: Empire would probably lose use of Boba Fett and Bossk (like they did in X-Wing - which kind of sucked).

    Boba makes Hyperspace a combo wing fest.  Only good counter I found so far are ships that don´t have to fly towards him and still get a shot. He is ridicolous in this format

    I guess this is a good time to admit I bought in to Legion recently. I mean, I bought a lot. Not even clone wars stuff either - original factions. Started making my own terrain. Bought a huge battle map from Europe. Preordered K-2SO and that guy he hangs around with. I mean they’re getting a Neimoidian! What was I supposed to do?
    Boba is a real pain in that game too though, so you’re not missing out.

    Artwork on the back of damage deck is nice. But why did ffg go with the damage deck version with only text on front? Why not use the one with the TIE/SF that shows what part got hit. It looks so much better.

    Okay, let's compare them then:
    Anakin: 3 hull, 3 shields behind 2 agility – Soontir: 3 hull, 0 shields behind 3 agility
    No, one extra green die does not make up for more than double the health.
    Anakin: Can double-reposition from every white maneuver on his dial, every turn – Soontir: Double-reposition means he has to do a blue next turn, leaving him predictable. Daredevil means he can't barrel roll or get mods
    No, a 90° boost doesn't make up for a totally-wide-open dial
    Anakin: Can reposition and get mods on a red maneuver – Soontir: Red maneuver usually means no mods and always means no reposition
    No, the ability to get focus if your red bullseyes is not better than removing your stress and doing a reposition and an action if your red bullseyes
    Anakin: Always has passive focus, just because he exists – Soontir: Only gets passive focus if he bullseyes an opponent
    Fair, calculate isn't as good as focus, but Soontir does often miss it, even with DD
    Anakin: If you're blocked, you usually get to remove a stress and still have passive mods – Soontir: If you're blocked, you usually get a focus
    Okay, that does make Soontir look just about as good as Anakin in this one instance
    Anakin: If you make a mistake, go regen some health – Soontir: If you make a mistake, he's literally dead
    Effectively 3 hull 5 shields vs 3 hull 0 shields – I'll let you judge who wins this one
     
    Soontir starts almost every turn stressed. He will dial a 2-turn almost every turn, and if he doesn't, it's pretty obvious what his move will be. Blocking him is easy if you have something fast in your squad. Getting him in arc isn't as hard as double-repositioning makes it seem. On the other hand, Anakin starts almost every turn un-stressed and with at least one force. He can dial in any maneuver on his dial and then double-reposition, often even on a red maneuver. And it takes a lot more licks to get to the center of that lollipop.
    Calling them in any way comparable is patently absurd on its face. Yes, 7B regen Anakin is still more than 20 points better than this imaginary double-talent Soontir.

    His blue moves are predictable. What you're showing is what he can do afterward (and if there are no obstacles involved, which is a fantasy). He can't do any of that if he's blocked, and it only takes blocking him once to kill him dead, as every Soontir player will attest. There are only 7 potential ending locations, 2 of which are used 90-95% of the time, and exactly one of which is most likely on any given turn, unless played more-than-usually cagey (even for Soontir).
    For blocking him, this is all you have to consider:

    Pretty straightforward there. I demand apples to apples comparison. Note how you omitted Anakin's heat map.
    Unfortunately, the site doesn't have the Aethersprite. It needs to be updated pretty badly . Closest comparison is the Starviper. Just switch the 1-straight for a 5-straight and 4-K and 5-K turns.

    Adding just the boost action (because the Viper's barrel roll would misrepresent what he can do), you get this:

    This doesn't show double-repositioning, or any barrel rolls. Again looking for the closest comparison, here's what an A-Wing can do with double-reposition. Anakin also has a 1-bank and wouldn't end stressed in any of these cases:

    Also Anakin can boost into roll, which this doesn't show, and still end unstressed.
    Also, Anakin can double-reposition off of a red maneuver in moderately favorable circumstances.
    The heatmap is not comparable. The comparison is still absurd.

    Soontir is priced fine. To get back his value you actually need to put in some effort. If someone deserves to get a point increase its Anakin (I6) and Obi-Wan (I5)

    I feel like they could do that if it were crew. Revisiting a gunner with the same name in the same faction hasn't been done yet.
    On that note, Poe crew could be cool too.
    Please just no. They've stolen enough stuff already. Let's not make this a thing, at least until the existing factions have at least 10x as many pilots on the proposed "stolen" chassis.
    Knights of Ren go in Whispers or that funky transporter (also would make cool crew). The Dagger is strictly Sith.

    I hope with the new card packs we get more pilots at least. But the first card packs (the one with the pilots) seem rather lacking. Not much new in it. I expected more pilots. The amount of pilots we now get in the whole package (16), but for every faction. 16 new pilots for each faction. That would have made an impact.

    Ten is 48 now, Braylen is 51. Is there a reason you think their price will look like this or is it a rough estimate?
    And I do not think 13 is that high. Most double-taps are expensive. From the top of my head:
    Veteran Tail Gunner - 7 points, can only shoot after a primary front attack and only in primary back attack Vetean Turret Gunner - 8 points, can only shoot after a primary attack and only from a turret, bonus is you can target the same ship Bistan - 14 points, can only shoot if you have a Focus Token which more or less means, you want to run it with Perceptive Copilot at all times, you also have to use turret attack and have to target two different enemies Han Solo (gunner) - 14 points, can shoot at I7 but requires a turret attack and blocks that turret arc for the engagement Darth Maul (pilot) - have to burn two out of three Force Charges to perform a bonus attack, either on the same target, if you missed or another one, if you hit Now Stabilized S-Foils for B-Wings give you:
    three new action options, that being Red Reload, B-Roll > Red Lock, B-Roll > Red Evade; two of those actions they had no access to without them; allows them after they perform any attack to burn a Lock to perform bonus Cannon Attack against the same target; I am quite certain it is worth at least 13 points. If its any lower, its extremely unbalanced.
    PS. I do not wish to pass as offensive or aggressive. I have been told, I can seem like this from my way of typing, hence the explanation. Friendly exchange of opinions is all I am here for

    I know right, seven factions has come at a cost... Each faction is waiting in line for their slice if the pie. Scum is likely near the back of the line as they have more ships than most... Best they can hope for is some love in future points adjustments... A New jumpmaster pilot isn't something I'm very excited about. Bossk in a z95 is ok but will it be playable VS Jedi pilots and force users? Doubtful.
