Leaders - Who's in the game?

Recommended Posts

So we know from the product page that the game includes 25 leaders. I presume that'll be 12 for each faction + 'Luke (Jedi)'

 

Each player begins the game with the 4 starting leaders of Mothma, Dodanna, Leia, Riekaan or Vader, Palp, Tarkin, Tagge.

Looks like in rounds 2,3,4 and 5 each player adds a new leader to their leader pool?

 

Each faction probably has 6 space and 6 ground leaders each:

 

* = confirmed
? = guess

IMPERIALS:

Ground Leaders
Vader * 
Tagge * 
Veers * 
Fett * 
[bLANK] ? 
[bLANK] ? 

Space Leaders:
Palp * 
Tarkin * 

Ozzel  *
Piett ? 
Needa ? 
[bLANK]? 

REBELS:

Ground Leaders
Leia * 
Riekan * 
Young Luke * 
Chewie *
Obi-Wan * 
[bLANK] ?

Jedi Luke *

Space Leaders
Han * 
Dodonna * 
Mothma * 
Wedge *

Lando *

Ackbar ?

So who do you think the other leaders will be?

Chewy could be his own character, or he could be an attachment ring that gets assigned to Han.  I'm guessing he's popular enough to be his own character though.

Crix Madine seems like a shoe in for Rebels.

Pretty sure Obi is confirmed already.  That would round out your rebel ground crew.

 

Ackbar and Lando seem like pretty good choices to finish out the space crew for the rebels.  Ackbar is basically mandated.

 

The Empire has so many good options.

Motti and Jerjerrod from the movies.  Needa and Piett seem like obvious choices.

Thrawn is a fan favorite but he's legends only, and no one else off the list is legends material so far, so I think they are going to stick to the movies only.  Sadly, this throws out Daala also.

Other OT options: Bast and Yularen.

Would it be too soon for them to have basic information on (and LFL's consent to use) the relevant characters in Rogue One? We've established that leaders in this game are just numbers anyway.

I guess I've been under the assumption that all of their products going forward are going to adhere as closely to the unified canon as possible, but then you've got Soontir Fel there, who is Legends, unless of course they incorporated his character into the plot of the spinoff movie (which is too cool for me to assume that's what has happened, but it's the only explanation I can think of unless FFG is continuing to make Legends nods in its Star Wars games).

This game seems to be resting completely within the realm of the OT.  One exception is the Imperial transport unit.

Even if allowed to use other material, I doubt they'd pull from something not released.

Fel isn't considered Legends though.  He was at the battle of Endor and had screen time.

 

From what we can tell, FFG still seems to be able to touch on legends material in at least some of their games.  This honestly makes sense as there just isn't enough material in the current canon to handle expandable games.  This game doesn't have anything from Legends at this point though.

Was Soontier confirmed?  Certainly a possibility, but I don't remember seeing a confirmation of this one.

 

From the game's description, right after the image of the four starting leaders for the Empire and Rebellion.

 

"These are not the sum of your possible leaders, however. You will also be able to recruit more leaders over the course of your game, including such notable characters as Luke Skywalker, Lando Calrissian™, General Veers™, and Soontir Fel™."

The transport is from Rebels, and while I would love Fel to be canon again I'm not sure he is, or at the very least they haven't updated his Wookiepedia page from legends. I think because it was later said he was there rather than said his name or was called as such all Tie pilots in the films are just "Unnamed Imperial Pilot".

I would love to see Thrawn, Palleon, and Yullaren, but I'm not counting on it. Veers is a given.

On the Rebel side, I would like to see Crix Maine and Wedge.

Wedge is allready pretty much confirmed. If you look at the product page for Rebellion and klick the "read more" thingy he is in one of the pictures there.

I started watching it last night but didnt get that far. I had a conscienciously stop myself from banging my forehead on the table several times.

Hopefully today's article will shed more light and hopefully waylay my concern for the leader balance.

Greejatus?  Wow, that was out of left field.  He wasn't anywhere close to my predicted roster.

 

Thanks for suffering through the video for us.

 

Yea, he wasn't in my predicted roster either, but it is what it is. And yea, the video was difficult to watch at points especially with them ignoring rules or Joe telling the other guy he couldn't do this or that, like being able to move the Rebel base after it was discovered. 

 

Though at least we now know the leaders in the game, and have the game's map figured out as I showed in another thread.
