Thanks Nick, I'll have a listen on my cycle home this evening, I've been really enjoying the podcast since you restarted :)

I have absolutely no idea what Network Neutrality is but I'll have  a read...

Looks like I need a ZIP code to signup mate, I probably can't influence from across the pond I'm afraid. Working as a Manager for a business ISP over in the UK though, I already see this happening here

Thanks Rich. BattleForTheNet.com does a better job explaining Net Neutrality than I could, so I'm glad you found the link there. It's a US thing so if you live elsewhere don't worry about it too much (well, be aware of your country's policies). I added a USA-disclaimer to my last post.

In this episode we discuss the most recent map added to tournament rotation: Nal Hutta Swamps (link to detailed map preview).

We also discuss the Ugnaught swarm list that has won several recent tournaments. For reference, the list is commonly made up of the following deployment cards:

I'm not seeing this episode on iTunes. Is that feed no longer working?

Thanks for the heads up. I think my caching was too aggressive. I cleared the cache and it's showing up now for me in Overcast and Apple Podcasts. Give it another shot/refresh on your end.

Thanks for the rule clarification @Matsu Robun and @a1bert. This is why I hate companions (particularly the Junk Droid): they're just a knot of rule exceptions that are a pain even for experienced players like myself to untangle.

@leacher I don't use Podbean but that Soundcloud URL should automatically redirect to the feed on my https://NewOrders.xyz domain and you can see the current episode up there now that it's had time to refresh.

New episode out now:

Interview with Imperial Assault Designer Jonathan Ying - Episode 12

We sat down with Imperial Assault Designer Jonathan Ying for a quick chat at SHUX. He talks to us about the origins of Imperial Assault and the skirmish mode. He also tells some other fun & interesting stories about IA development.

Jonathan’s new game is called Bargain Quest. It’s up for preorder now after a successful after a very successful Kickstarter campaign. We greatly enjoyed playing it and are looking forward to our own copy.

Thanks for checking out our short break from our usual skirmish analysis. We’ll be back with Heart of the Empire discussion soon.

Your next podcast should talk about how the process of beta testing HotE (if there are no NDAs to violate).

Seriously though, I'm glad you guys participated. Your podcasts prove you have a great feel for the skirmish game.

Thanks for your kind words @cnemmick. However, we can't really comment about beta testing.

Episode 13 – Heart of the Empire Deployment Cards Initial Review

In this episode we have some initial reactions to the skirmish deployment cards from Heart of the Empire. We start with Imperial cards, then move to Mercenary cards, and finally discuss Rebel cards.

Some small corrections for things I misspoke about in the episode:

  • I say Vader with Driven by Hatred is 12 points but he’s actually 13 ( 18 point base -5 on the attachment).
  • I was talking about using a command card I called Tools for the Job with Han but actually meant Smuggled Supplies.
  • We totally read J4X-7 wrong: it give pierce to enemy figures it's adjacent to. Will mention in next episode. 

For feedback you can find us on Twitter @IANewOrders or post right here.

Thanks for listening and we’ll be back soon to talk about the new Command Cards!

You were pretty down on Face to Face. I think the main advantage it has over Urgency is that Vader can use it to move, attack, and choke.

We mentioned this scenario (time stamped link):

Just don’t think it’s as good as Face to Face, but you would want to find room for it in a Brawler list with Vader.

Whoop, must have spaced on that part. I generally listen to podcasts during work or driving.
