After some playtest - here's some feedback:
L03 - Bargaining for profit - maybe should be limited (2 / 3 per turn) or something else.
L12 - Borsk fey - too OP if can be triggered even if you don't have another unique unit or if you have a useless one (4 tactics each turn are insane)...
L15 - Private research Facility - maybe only Trooper or focus this enhancement to have one of your unit...
L16 - 8t88 - adding once per turn.
- Intercepted transmission - should be only on your turn.
- Decrypting station - should be 2 bottom card or have some other downgrade.
L22 - Conceiling Heritage - should be more limited.
- Jedi reflexes - should be after you lose an edge battle.
L24 - too OP with dagobah creatures pod combo...
- Sturm und Drang - maybe 1 additional gun vs force committed unit instead of double damage.
- Ysalamiri - should be 0 Force pip to be coherent and/or cost 2.
L27 - Inertial Dampeners - should be enhance 1 of your Vehicle.
L29 - Bel Iblis - should be only on your opponent's Turn or have less icon or pip.
Hope it may help.
Okay, I want to thank you, because I can tell that you went through some serious thought about where these cards are strong and can be improved. This is arguably the best pinpoint review of cards I've received since early, early playtesting. I would like to respond to your comments in kind:
Bargaining for Profit: One large goal of this cycle was to use the phrase "limit once per ____" as infrequently as possible. Bargaining went through a number of revisions, and I think that the one which got printed was slightly less optimized than our "final" version. The intended effect is that it is only usable when the DS has more AVAILABLE resources than you (like if they float lightning). As printed, it only works as a comeback mechanic and although it works in both form and function, it isn't perfect. My suggestion (if it needs to change at all) is the above.
Borsk: He's strong and 4 tactics is good. He's meant to be that good. However, if you put him on the board you'll find out that he can't carry the game on his own. Further, his pod is expensive and hard to include as a 2x. Have you put him on the table and actually found him to be oppressive yet? You may find that he doesn't come with any unit-killing tools, just some bombs and lots of tricks. He's often amazing early game and decent mid/late game.
Private research faculty: Hey! you found one! one of the cards that is REALLY strong. like really strong. This was discussed in testing and this is, in fact, the design intent. This is meant to give trooper and navy decks some real unique oomph that other decks can't match. Also, part of the design is that you won't find this resource every game, and your "commit auras" should feel different in the early-mid games. Yeah, it's strong, and might deserve a cost of some sort, but I think that the pod lacking a main is enough of a cost to justify it.
8t88: He's inconsistent and definitely doesn't need to say once per turn. His icons are good though. His objective is the one that needs to say once per turn, but that was vetoed by the "no limit" philosophy. That objective is the place I would break in revisions.
Intercepted Transmission - This is balanced by letting the LS player choose and there being no hand-peek. You never steal more than 1 dot, unless you aim for bamboozles. LS players should be wary of holding that last card anyway these days. This card is fine.
Decrypting Station: This card is good, but costs you the money. Lots of discussions were had about this pod, in how it lets you capture a ton more than usual, but provided very little hand bonus for it. (all the cards have a cost for not much combat gain). This could use a revision, but not in the "Take off the bottom". If anything, it needs to be less efficient at capturing (possibly double focus). Sidenote: if 8t88 was a worse main, I would argue that this card was fine. Also, hey, it can't pay for a headhunter.
Concealed Heritage - This card needs more discussion than I want to put here. I am holding firm that it is strong but fine. See my comment above.
The Yellow Creature pod - This comment tells me that you probably haven't built the deck and put it on the table yet. This pod is really a bunch of extremes on its own. Its mains cost too much to have 1 dot and no bombs and there are no bombs in the pod. Putting this in a mono yellow deck makes the cost curve very high. Then, adding this into a spiders deck means you have to add at least one yoda for the Dagobah trait, and then hey, you have half a deck with maybe 2 bombs in it. The best way to use this pod with Spiders is with 2 Beezer and maybe 1 Han. Then Beezer gets to strike with all the double taps and gain a ton of bombs and be protected from all sides. It's a crazy combo deck that I use IRL without this creature pod. Trust me, this pod is balanced and almost bad by virtue of having no aggressive powers whatsoever. Ysalimiri is a good card, but that's why its in this pod with no good LS units and in the DS pod with no actual units. If they enter the meta legitimately, it forces players to find force dots via other means (which is kind of the point). Dropping them to 0 dots is nice for theme but makes them actually trash.
Inertial Dampeners - This is why I KNOW you put time and effort into these cards and want them to be good. This is an honest typo on our part. It should say friendly, but actually, it's not broken as written. It has kind of been my litmus test for who is actually looking at these cards, and hey you passed. Card should change, but as printed, it's definitely not as bad as the Hawk Tattoo fiasco.
Bel Ilbis: Taking force on DS turn is hard and it should be. Bel Ilbis's job is to hold force on both sides and try to get the DS to attack. He is in a rebel only pod to both deter Yoda synergy and to prevent drawing 7. I don't think you've actually put him on the table yet, because if you had, you would both not be complaining about him, but absolutely be complaining about how busted Reserve Forces (his event) is. Also, Local support is a much bigger liability in practice than in theory.
