  1. I am perfectly happy with the release schedule as is. I feel like people pretty accurately predict 1-2 weeks ahead of each product anyway. Most of the time I’m at my local store to pick up my preorders before they even get a chance to call me as is.
  2. The announcement that the original prices were wrong ended up being incorrect, so they adjusted the prices back to what they were. $35 and $60 are the real amounts
  3. To the ongoing debate, I’ll just throw this out there: I am terrible at this game, but I’ve never lost to a list with the T47 in it. On topic: I still don’t think the 47 would be good with barrage either, it might devastate rebs and droids. But I think it’d still be bad against empire and republic. Even if a barrage were a free add-on it still costs too much. You can get 2 or 3 kitted units of anything else for 175. Would a 47 with barrage be fun to play? Undoubtedly, but it wouldn’t be competitive. Which is fine, not everything has to be worlds worthy. People are allowed to play fun lists too.
  4. I bought a Luke and Vader for less than $10 on eBay (with tokens and cards). There are deals out there if you’re able to look. I suspect clone wars will be even easier in this regard because the core units are going to be an even bigger staple of those armies. I’m contemplating buying 3 myself...
  5. Wow man, that’s a little uncalled for. Start a new topic for something like that discussion... For what it’s worth, I don’t see any of the UK/Aus players I watch trying to play competitively under 10 acts either. Other than fun games where people are trying out new releases....which is what someone would do with this list that we are even taking about right now. Anyhow, I think it would work. People tend to underestimate weaker heroes like Leia and Veers. I find them very useful in combat at round 5-6, especially if they are at full health and only need to deal with half strength squads at that point.
  6. I feel like it was only the other day when Triple Bike & Veers was THE META for empire, how far we've come lol I'll reserve my judgement & comparison on how good TaunTauns are until I play against them
  7. My complaint with the landspeeder that I bought, the fixed turret weapons (rifle and ion) were literally bent in half out of the box. I feel like I had to work much harder than I should have to fix them, on a model that cost $50.
  8. Yep that long base makes the tank pretty fast!
  9. I would prefer to see more innovation in unit/ability keywords than in dice
  10. Saber throw allows Vader a lot more chances to hit when he normally might not be able (round 1/2). Also allows him to project more threat (Impact3/Pierce3 is no joke).
  11. I don't think increasing the cost of the ATST any further is going to help it.
  12. The first time I used Fett (days after he came out) he got killed with 11 suppression token on him. Wasn’t a super serious game and my opponent wanted to see what it took to kill him in heavy cover with regular troops. If he’s rolling well, he’s really difficult for non-sharpshooter or hero units.
  13. Nice! I've never used HQ Uplink, but it sounds like it works quite well
  14. Usually just the Concussion, 88 never felt like it was worth the points. People in my area never bring T47s anymore. ATRTs have also become scarce, so the need for impact 4 isn't there anymore. What people do bring are SabCommandos, Fleets, and Snows. These are all close range units, so yeah, usually round 1 I move the ATSTs up, and shoot the main guns. Then round 2 I move up again, and can shoot main guns and concussions. As a result, I also play pretty aggressively with veers
  15. I am still waiting to get a few more games in with him, but: I have played 1 or 2 AT-ST in every game since launch, until 2 weeks ago. When I played a couple games with a 10act list with Boba+Duck+Hunter+Stims. Takeaways: Boba is really good. I wish I had just run him zero upgrades (I never used any of them). It makes me sad that he is probably more useful than an ATST. Both of my opponents were playing very similar imperial lists to mine though, and I feel like Boba will do less well against Rebels. As to damage output - I almost always run my ATSTs with Concussion Launcher these days - so while I didn't find Bobas damage output to be awe-inspiring, his utility sure was nice.
