    KarlVonCarstein got a reaction from BlueSquadronPilot in I really want the First Order (and Resistance) and why they are viable as factions.   
    I'm highly doubtful that sequal factions will come to legion. Since the release of episode 9, Disney has been backing away from the sequal trilogy. No new material, all their star wars releases have focused on the new era or mandalorian. Given how popular the mandalorian is, especially compaired to the sequal trilogy, I'd bet on scum being approved for legion, not sequal trilogy factions.

    KarlVonCarstein got a reaction from buckero0 in Thoughts on a strike team change   
    As you said strike teams are not the only units spamed for activation control. They are the most visible, and I do think they need to be adjusted. You're correct that core units should also be looked at this, but I'd go about it a different way.
    I'd like to see a couple of changes to the mandatory core units. I'd make it mandatory for those units to take a heavy weapon, and I'd ban emplacement troopers from being one of the three mandatory core choices. That combined with some kind of nerf to strike teams would help reduce activation spam.

    I feel that anyone who still thinks that Disney will want to put the sequel trilogy (an era they seem to be running from as fast as they can) in Legion before Scum & Villainy (heavily represented in what is easily their most popular current Star Wars property) is...let's just say not paying attention.

    I'd be in favor of your first and third options. Not sure about just a points increase. I don't think they need to be completely removed from the game, just adjusted so they can't be spammed.

    KarlVonCarstein reacted to buckero0 in What units need buffing?   
    Why do people think the Rebel Vets are better than troopers? (Mentioned several times above)
    Naked squad of troopers is 40pts, and have the same durability as vets for less.
    While their gun got a discount, i still haven't seen a rebel gun better than the dlt20 except those on characters.
    And that is still cheaper than Vets.
    I wish i could find something redeeming about them

    How do you spam unique units? I'll grant you that they are good and commonly taken in lists, but that is different than spam.

    KarlVonCarstein reacted to Alpha17 in Every unit should have Scale   
    As someone who has actually been shot at in real life, and has more combat training than the average bear, yes, going to ground makes you less likely to get shot.  There's a reason why in both World Wars, veterans and FNGs could be identified by just watching what they did when under fire; rookies looked around bewildered, vets hit the dirt, and made themselves as small of a target as possible.  Laying down in an open field might not seem like the brightest of ideas, but it's a whole lot better than standing up in the same field.  Additionally, few areas are truly flat, and you'd be surprised at what dips and depressions can be found when your life depends on it.  People that have been shot at also tend to stay down a bit more when hearing gunfire than people who haven't, hence the entire point of the suppression mechanic in the game.
     
    And this is in a universe where bullets do occasionally bounce.  In Star Wars, where we have lasers and plasma weapons that are never shown to bounce off of or skip across the ground, it would work even better.  Sure, there are other weapons, like rockets and flamethrowers, but notice that more than a few of those tend to have the "Blast" keyword, so the point is somewhat moot, ain't it?

    Maybe the phase 1 upgrade box officer  without a helmet, or one of the ARC helmets.

    As a temporary proxy for (presumably casual games) any of the models from the Phase I Clone upgrade box would work fine. The Officer or the Specialist probably work the best armament wise.

    I wouldn't mind this if there's an alternative way to get the new rules. I have 5 squads of painted stormtroopers already, I'm really not interested in buying more of them.

    I'll agree with most of this except:
    Dewbacks - might need an even bigger change to be worthwhile.
    Aat- its good but I don't think it needs a point increase right now.
    I'm skeptical about changing the points on b2s as well.
