Trooper Assault

Cheers mate. I'm glad to see that we played it correctly. I myself said if it was indeed the second scenario it would just be insanely powerful- nigh on broken (in mtg terms ;) ).

 

Yeah we focused all participating units, but he had held other 'trooper' types back for defence. What Im loving abut this game (other then the SW goodness) is its difference from mtg and how amazingly deep the mechanics are, the combat feels awesome.

 

Also if the pages your talking about are the turn/phases 'map' at the back of the rules, yes it has been very helpful, especially the action window between declaring attackers/declaring defenders. and the one right at the end of a turn during force commitment (for force choking stuff). Im finding the one thing were struggling with and keeps tripping a few of us up is- unlike mtg the is only x1 deployment phase before combat. where all good mtg players keep there good stuff back for after combat, and Im like nope!

When someone declares an attack on an objective it becomes an engagement. When the combat eg edge, striking, unopposed damage is finished for that objective the engagement is over. So this event only lasts for that 1 objective battle. Secondly: all units in the engagement must strike. Does not matter if they won't do anything or have no target for their icons. They must focus to strike for the engagement to end. Hope this makes sense. The best way to understand timing and all the terms coming from magic is read page 30 & 31 in the rule book. That explains when everything happens, what it's call and when the action windows are (this one has been the biggest bit to get around for most people I know who play mtg) If you need help with anything else don't hesitate to ask mate

Hey guys, Had this come up in a game recently and wasn't sure how to play it, can any one help?

 

1} We did end up playing it as this: We thought that the 'combat phase' was called the 'engagement phase' but played this as a single combat against 1 location.

 

2} Because he had troopers left unfocused, and used them to attack another location, we questioned if the buff from TA was still in effect on the now attacking troopers?

 

We play mtg primarily and effects like this last until end of turn and hit everything you own. Im hoping we played it correct (1) but would like to make sure for future play.

Also the reverse, use Smuggler's Run to grab the Enhancement for LS, then use the Battlefield Engineers to clear it.  Of course, LS has significantly fewer troopers than DS, so you won't have many options to use it.

For a crazy, super random way to do it, you could use join me to steal a battlefield engineer and then unfocus it when he is declared as an attacker.

Bounty Collection can do it. Not sure what kind of deck that'd be, though.

 Is their a way to remove a focus token off a enchancement?

You can still do it multiple times if you somehow manage to remove the focus token, though.

No, you focus it to use it at which point the card is exhausted.

Picture: Unit Damage.  Card: Blast Damage.  Go figure.

I assume you can do this multiple times per turn, correct?

I like this to free up Slimy Scheme in a deck with Snoova or Bossk.

Nice Card to play on your affiliation card.  Low cost.  Effective.

Do I get to put this back into my hand if I play it as an edge card? I'm guessing no, but I figured I'd ask. Thank you!

I would say yes.

Rules: "Each player now adds the number of Force icons on his ready units that are committed to the Force. This number is his force total."

 

1. I doesnt say it wouldn't. Only requirement is that it has a pilot.

2. Abilities on cards work even when focused (if they dont require focusing as a cost)

3. This unit isn't even commited and its pilot still contributes

Yes. When in doubt, always take the most literal interpretation of a card's effect.

Yes. The pilot enhancement can be focused, the interceptor can be focused, it does not matter.

The 181st tie intercepters only requirement for its card text to function is that's it's piloted.

If this unit is exhausted, does its Pilot enhancement still contribute its Force icons to your side during the Force struggle?
