Galactic Republic Wishlist

What do we hope to see from this exciting new faction?

 

Are we expecting a release at the very end of Q1 or is February a possibility? 

 

I am personally so excited to get a bunch of cool Jedi on the table, the awesome guys and gals that have always made Star Wars so exciting for me.

 

I really want Jedi to feel incredibly powerful on the board and be a real 'force' (geddit) if used correctly. I don't just want X wings that have the force, the abilities are going to be key to really getting this ship to feel both unique and thematic on the table.

 

So, what else are we hoping for? What kind of cool abilities might our Jedi generals have? Will triple ARC's be a thing???

I’d like to see an ability to swap stress for Force tokens. Something like:

“whenever you pay one force point you may gain one stress to recover one force point and whenever you gain 1 stress you may pay one force point to clear one stress”

maybe expand it to include friendlys at range 0-2

also, since you are friends with Yoda would you mind introducing me?

That's a pretty neat mechanic, and would really highlight just how easily these guys were throwing the Force around.

Arcs 

Whenever you bring one arc you get two firing arcs

So each arc gives you three arcs!

and, as a bonus, you get even more if they have side arc abilities! suddenly your arc can arc any arc while it arcs its arcs.

Add prockets/hlc/predator/crack shot and you can use the arc inside your arc's arc.

I've only flown tripARCs once so far, but ARC-dodging gets pretty tough 😜

 

I mean everything that's been revealed looks amazing. The Delta 7 has a few unknowns that make it unclear just how powerful it will be (I'm hoping it leans towards expensive and super powerful, myself). But CLONE SYNERGY, my gosh I'm looking forward to playing with side-arc abilities and Devoted.

HA! HA!! HA!!!, I mean HO! HO!! HO!!!

This will be the faction that forces (geddit II} me to play 2.0.

I'd like a shiny Naboo Cruiser for next Christmas, and the V-Wing.

Yoda in the game would be awesome, as well.

Lastly, despite the overall shuttle hate, I'd like to see the Theta.  Ya know, for my V-Wings to escort.

Yoda, both as a crew upgrade and a pilot on the Eta-2 Actis, would be right at the top of my wish list. I'd like a shuttle of some kind to be an alternative to the LAAT, which I assume will be added at some point as well. From what little info we have, it looks like the clones will be all about formation flying and group tactics which I am all for and want to see more of.

I want to see them join Epic before any other new faction too. I like the Republic that much. Maybe the long silver Naboo whatsit from Episode 1. No weapons on it, but that never bothered the Rebels and their GR-75's. It would look so cool on the table with a squad of nothing but N-1 fighters.

Hoping for a February release, but expecting them to drop in March.

This fallacy of equivocation lends itself to an infinitely recursive function! That's like saying that "Mac" is an acronym of "Mac And Cheese", which would mean that "Mac" is actually an acronym of "Mac and Cheese and Cheese", but that actually means that these 3 letters are an acronym of "Mac and Cheese and Cheese and Cheese"...."Mac and Cheese and Cheese and Cheese and Cheese and Cheese and Cheese and Cheese...".... "Mac and Cheese and Cheese and Cheese and Cheese and Cheese and Cheese and Cheese and Cheese and Cheese and Cheese and Cheese and Cheese and Cheese..."

Mac is an acronym for Macaroni and Infinite Cheese

LAAT. Eventually, at least.

Ooo, side arc abilities paired with at least one turret or 180* front arc? Hadn’t thought much about that aspect.

Quad ARC170s, please. 

I really, really want them to be cheap enough for four.

They should be. The cheapest Rebel one is 50(?) points, with i3(?) and a pilot ability. So unless FFG is randomly scared of four naked generics...

“Four naked generics” 

that sounds like something I’d be scared of, terrified even.

I could see the lowest generics being between 44 and 46 points each. They're basically a 9hp Lok with a range 3 Dorsal turret locked to the rear arc and K-Turns instead of Tallon Rolls, though I'd love it if the Lok got cheaper to match...

You got it, just a heads up - he can be kind of a jerk sometimes. In a fun, "haha you think I burned the sacred books", sort of way.
