How Would Juno work with Ion Tokens?

Recommended Posts

So here is a question, I know there is a rules section but well for one this card is not released and subject to change and there really is no FAQ or rules to clarify the final say.

 

But back to Ion tokens and Juno's ability?

 

So Ion tokens force a white 1 straight maneuver. Juno can increase the speed or decrease the speed to a minimum of 1 (assuming there is a maneuver template). So can Junot make it a White 2 straight instead?

Okay but some things that have shenanigan Ion tokens.

 

  • You can now use R2 to turn the white 1 straight maneuver to green maneuver
  • You can now decloak when ionized

So are we sure that Juno won't get ion shenanigans with a pre-release FAQ?

Unless you are stressed, you always get your action after being ioned...

That said.. decloak isn't an action ... and the R2.. I'm not sure, but I think that has been covered.. I just dont play rebels a lot.. ok.. almost never..

Neither of those examples are contingent on you revealing a maneuver dial. With ion tokens you don't place a dial, hence there is nothing to reveal. Same reason it stops Adv Sensors.

They'd have to errata the card, not simply FAQ it. Such a change would also make Daredevil interesting on her.

DD is an action from an EPT... her ability won't work on it.. her ability triggers off of her revealing her dial.

FTFY

Thanks :)

The common misunderstanding about R2 Astromech, seems to come from people thinking that the Ion effecturns a 1 straight green into a 1 straight white. There is a rule that states that an effect that makes a maneuver more difficult trumps one that makes it less difficult. White having a higher difficulty than green.

But Ion's don't turn a green maneuver white, it is simply a maneuver you have to perform. So R2 or Nien Numb work because there's nothing that changed the difficulty in the first place.
