Morally grey characters

With the increasing number of morally ambiguous characters in the SW canon (DJ, Beckett, Qi'Ra, some of those introduced in the Mandalorian), perhaps it's time for a new icon or keyword to represent this factor. LOTR had the Gollum mechanic, with him being a zero cost character who could be in your ...

Re: Worlds (and 2020 Season Review) Alternative Title 'The Year My Wife Accepted My Stupid Hobby'

All I have to say is...
Bonza mate!
All games can come down to a single action: one forgotten shield, an unexpected tech card. Each one can teach something, so... may your wife, children and nappies be as forbearing when you go 4-2 next year.

Re: The Mandalorian (*spoilers* for released episodes only)

This episode made me smile, clap and voice my approval in scene after scene - in a way I haven’t done since TFA/Rogue One. Star Wars is really back.

Re: GEMP Feature Requests

Small request for a wording change. On the options to do something that’s an in game term (for example Rally or Escape) it’d be handy to have reminder text advising what those functions do. For those mentioned above: Escape (send this character to used pile) Rally (this character remains at the loca...

Re: The Mandalorian (*spoilers* for released episodes only)

If Luke is the last Jedi a few years later, that means: Grogu isn't going to be a Force user at all. Or Grogu is going to be a Jedi, and will be killed off before the sequels. Or Grogu becomes some sort of Bendu like grey Force user (and thus not a Jedi). Or There's going to be another cop out 'surv...

Re: The Mandalorian (*spoilers* for released episodes only)

Any bets on who the Jedi will be that "answers the beacon" to train Grogu? "Nobody" is a very strong frontrunner in my opinion. Consider my bet placed. Also leaning that way, or possibly even a dark side character - Grogu has sometimes used his powers in ways that DS characters would approve of: fo...

Re: Ask the TD/Judge

One of the things that came up on Slack was around active judging - and when it is/isn’t possible to point out... dodgy behaviour (there’s a little ambiguity around observers advising judges of issues). A segment about general tournament stuff would be useful too: getting there early enough, registr...

Re: Set 13 Full Spoiler List

Barrier meets your criteria. I don't think anyone feels like it should be shielded/banned - in fact Weapons Display was just deleted! Barrier is a good point - I do feel that it should be a lost interrupt. Generally it’s one of the cards that is grabbed first to prevent it being looped (along with ...

Re: Set 13 Full Spoiler List

Obviously they discussed it. I mean did they discuss their reasoning with the community on why they are shielding it now. I've been pushing for a shield or psuedo-banning of grimnock since well before I've had any say in design. I think they're among the the worst cards in SW so anytime there's a d...

Re: WYS Errata

When I was watching the ‘swing and a miss’ section of this week’s holotheatre, and the question about Hitco being one of the most popular decks at worlds came up... my immediate reaction was to shake my head, knowing that this is going to be the year of WYS.

Re: Hunt Down V

Make sure you pack ways to deal with EBO using Luke in a speeder (don't rely on multiple BD) - those drain bonuses will get turned back on again.

Re: Prepare for a Surface Attack, you may start your landing vs Ultimatum defensive shield

Quick tip: To help the rules team answer your question, it’s a good idea to post the relevant text from each card, or the card images from: https://scomp.starwarsccg.org/

Cheers.

Re: Super Experimental K2SO Build

I like the idea - do you have enough ships though? 4 systems, and 3 ships... Lateral damage will hurt also.
