Sleuths at Worlds? No way! Lobot's Bounce House all day!
So you had 6 or 7 troopers out, Han hit the table, and they all died? Are you sure you aren't missing a rule?

Thanks for the podcast.
Hoth rearguard plus survival gear (or two) equals minimum 8 damage mitigation against hoth objectives.
Han does do a ton of damage to Troopers. When he attacks or defends he does 1 damage to someone and then with targeted strike he will almost certainly kill another.

This means that he will typically kill 1 or 2 per player turn depending on if you are attacking or defending.

If smugglers Han was not so potent in the meta, the game would be a bit better towards trooper decks. Maybe troopers with a dash of capture can allow you to remove that threat? I am eager to see all of Escape from Hoth before stating how this ultimately will shake out.

Reaction: When one of your Trooper units receives damage from an enemy unit, capture that unit.
