I saw a match on GEMP of Aitc vs ROPS (Silvergleen was playing ROPS) and it looks quite ugly for ROPS. It was Aitc gungans.

Why was today’s errata with Harc + OA only targeted at OA?
Simple answer is because we wanted to directly address the issue as soon as possible before worlds. Nerfing Harc in all decks via errata to him or a shield is a much longer conversation that would have delayed this.

Yes, AITC is the bane of ROPS because Underworld Contacts directly on counters ROPs flipside drain reduction and it gets plenty of time setup thereby also allowing itself to cancel DS BDs. Can't add +4 to a BD that gets cancelled with a Rep on the objective.

between justice/dark time/Maraak/Krennic I'd say this is something that is rarely gonna happen.

But if you're setup on Tatooine, draining unhindered and cancelling at least one of their Ralltiir drains with Bargaining Table a turn, ROPs either has to come to you or you get to pick your battles if you want to go to Ralltiir so I could see it happening on Ralltiir to get them flipped back.

This does all sound great in theory but silly in practice because in my experience DS mains wrecks AITC as does Invasion so you still should never play AITC competitively unless ROPs because all of the DS meta.

I thought the same while writing it. :-D
But actually, it was just Gungan Generals as non-unique (retrieval and nice for Leadership V) and Gen Jar Jar for rep.
Space wasn't bad either.

In the Announcements forum. I imagine it will make it to the Current Rulings and Errata thread in the Rules forum eventually, too.

Yes. This type of honesty and transparency is great for the community. I also want to commend whoever was involved for hearing the community, trying to look at things objectively, and make a change before an event like Worlds, even if Harc needs to be looked at on a broader scale going forward.

I know that we the community at large can give D&D and the CBT a hard time sometimes, but I do want to say we also realize how much everyone on those teams care about the game and let you know we appreciate the job you guys do!

The announcements sub forum. Which for some reason isn't at the top of the page.

And most of the time major errata is on the front page

I think the only place it's available is the Resources for Worlds thread:
