Admiral Piett - The only choice for what he can do.

Recommended Posts

Admiral Piett

Before a friendly ship's attack step, it may choose to only attack from it's forward arc this round. If it does, it may add 2 attack dice of any color to it's attack pool while attacking a ship or single squadron.

 

We all know we want this. Only because it's the only naval command in the entire movies that meant anything.

Jesus, of any color? Thats pretty powerful considering his SSD failed to shoot a singular awing down.

How was Piett supposed to know that he was a load-bearing boss and a lucky shot would bring his entire ship down?
acully they DID Shoot the A-wing down, it just happened to crash into the bridge...

Yeah that never quite made sense for me how a MASSIVE starship would suddenly drive into the Death Star because the bridge was hit. Did the dude on the steering do an evasive manoeuvre or something??

I think of it like all of its controls where destroyed and heavily damaged resulting in "false" signals to the engines and whatnot resulting in careening out of control into the death star

Haha, true. The Empire is worse than most car companies for making vehicles with massive flaws and turn out to be death traps.

Soooo... every Gladiator in the fleet can fire black dice at long range and activate Assault Concussion Missiles on any crit? It would have the advantage of ensuring all games finish well within time limits.

 

This is not the card you're looking for.

Move along :D

It happened because the Death Star, being the size of a moon, has a gravitational pull. Destroy the bridge, destroy the things controlling the engines, and all of a sudden your 19km dreadnought becomes little more than an exercise in gravitational physics

Really? I did not know that the gravity was cause of it crashing. The more you know.

Nah - it simply happened because it was necessary for the plot. Don't believe anyone who tries to explain Star Wars in terms of "logic" or "physics". Stuff like that happens because a) it's cool and b) looks plausible if you don't think about it too much. It doesn't make sense in any other way (but it doesn't have to).

Did you see how many MC80s were closing on that ship. It was like a dozen (look when watching). And those are only the ones you can see out the bridge.

I like the idea of him being a mirror to Ackbar.

Other options:

YouR ships may use one defence token while defending at speed zero.

Well sometimes in real wars, something do happens out of the ordinary, some ships do get destroyed in freak accidents, even though the chance for what occurred to them is almost non-existent,  its like rolling six dice, there is statistically (however slim the chance is) a possibility that you roll six on all six of them.

 

Airliners is supposed to be almost 100% (99,999%) foolproof, but sometimes things happen in sequence, that cause them to crash.

 

Same goes for an SSD crashing into to the Death Star, due to a freak accidental collision with an A-wing, its like a homage to David and Goliath, you take the almost smallest spaceship in the Star Wars Universe, and let it take out the biggest spaceship.

 

Call it Karma  ;)

lol I actually just watched that scene and they didn't actually hit the a-wing.  It looked like a kamikaze run.

easier to dodge than Akbar (only one arc; shorter than the ships' sides), but on the flipside imperials benefit far more from speeding towards enemies with their fronts aligned to their targets

 

 

plus, CF for five red dice out of GSDs? Ouch!
