Just announced by FFG during their session today: Imperial Entanglements.  Looks like a box for Navy and Smugglers.

Steve Horvath isn't a big lcg player So he may not know all the details. It did look like it was going to be navy and smuggler with pods for the other factions, maybe as a one of...similarly to BTS.

Thats my assumption. I can't see a single big box completely representing all 6 factions.

There was no card fan, only a box art pic. I'd expect a article previewing it on their website soonish.

I imagine it will be the same layout as between the shadows, probably the format going forward

Speculation time: Officer and/or Capital Ship focus for the Navy, tying in with Thrawn from the current cycle.

 

Navy/Smuggler has a much more obvious thematic connection than Jedi/Scum did, so it's likely to be themed around something like Imperial blockades and Smuggler blockade running.

 

We also know that the deluxe box covers can have some red herrings (e.g. Boba on the EoD cover and Jabba on the BtS cover), so no guarantees we'll actually get Veers(?), Lando or Han in this expansion.

I know one of the world champs has a Thrawn card in the works. Maybe it will be included here so it never cycles out. Pretty excited for this one. My hope is that there might be sets that tie together all the various strands navy has going. Be awesome to see for instance star destroyers that power up tie fighters or something along those lines.

Do we know that for certain? I remember either Dennis or Matt sat they wanted to do him but for all we know that might have been shot down by FFG if a thrawn was already in the works.

I want something that will still matter when all these sets we keep mentioning are rotated out.

I'm not a Sith fan, but won't Sith be in pretty rough shape considering the current cycle is vehicle oriented?

Maybe they'll get a strong character in the deluxe, who knows.

no way.  Sith is fine, even against vehicles.  They still have lots of good events (storm, shockwave, deadly sight, aggression) that deal with vehicles just fine.  they still have good edge counts, and they have very powerful units with good combat icons.   Palpatine is, and probably always will be good, same with vader, who can always ping vehicles with his reaction (sorry gray squadron y-wings, you still can't stop vader!)

 

I played Booker with a vehicle deck the other weekend and he crushed the deck with a mono sith deck.  Just couldn't get anything going after a 1st turn vader plus good events kept my board from building up.  This is not to say i don't want Sith to get any good cards, merely that they are still very good in a vehicle heavy meta.

The title of the set makes me think Han. Might be a Smugglers Sith box.

Even though FFG sometimes will put characters on the box cover that don't have cards in the actual box (Boba for EoD, Jabba for BtS), the actual factions advertised have always matched the contents. Even though it's not the clearest picture, we definitely see Han, Lando, and an AT-AT (the other guy kind of looks like Veers, but I'm not confident on that one). To me it's no doubt a Smugglers and Navy deluxe.

I think that Smugglers are still in fine shape, it's just that Jedi got up to the same power level during the last cycle. Rebels are currently the new hotness for this cycle, but last time I checked the Falcon, Chewie and Han is still a solid start for yellow decks.

Navy on the other hand has a lot of theme objective sets that just need one or two to finally push them to tier 1. Thrawn already has plenty of officers to combine with, Tarkin with protectors? Throw in Family Connections and the big Stormtrooper in his set gets protect, then Tagge gets protectors from Thrawn as well. Tagge is also a really nice target for Chain of Command.

The one subset for Navy I want fleshed out more than any other is Walkers. If Veers is in the box I could for sure see a pilot version of him with Blizzard 1.
