As most of you know, the winner of this year’s World Championship tournament will be allowed to work with the developers in designing a new card for the game, as announced here: edge_news.asp?eidn=4420
Also, I was informed today that last year’s World Champion will also have the same opportunity. So, this is a thread to discuss ideas.
Some that I have had or seen:
Weapons Upgrade: Modification. Cost 5, Increase your primary attack value by 1. This modification may only be used on ships whose primary attack value is 2 or less.
I costed it at 5 due to the difference between an Academy Pilot and an Alpha Squadron Pilot being 6, with the Alpha having greater maneuverability and the boost action. This could have some sick uses, like Backstabber, but generally it would make Ywings, TIE Advanced, and Awings more playable as threats instead of their pigeon holes that they are in now. Might also make the Crow more useful as a non-turret weapon. It would also make the ORS into a falcon with less hp.
C3PO: Unique Crew, cost 1. Your ship gains the “droid” icon in its upgrade bar.
It stinks that only the X and Ywings can have droids, and there need to be more new droids anyway, IMO.
So what are your ideas/visions for cards like Corran Horn, Rogue Squadron pilots, etc? I’m going to put out a blanket statement that no new ships ideas, please, like the Kihraxz fighter or TIE Defender or anything. Just new cards for ships and upgrades that we already have. Thank you.
