Starts at 30 but 20 after fully upgrading the ship
Confirmed? Or assumption?
EDIT: Nvm, just saw Crumb's post
The correct i.e. Jayne Cobb way to say this: I'll be in my bunk
You could have scrolled to three posts later
Can't wait to try this out with different BHs in various fleet loadouts
The only exception is when Obi Wan was undercover and they were working together on the ground -- but I never saw a fleet of BH ships working in tandem.
But hey, what do I know -- clearly the HT is the best ship ever, the most valuable tank, and critical to every single Star Wars fleet battle ever, along with (apparently) Razor Crest now too.
Every kid growing up with Star Wars absolutely knows who Bossk is and how crucial he was to every victory. And Mando showing up was definitely what turned the tide of the Battle of Endor to the Empire's favor, helping them blow up Home One and defeat the Rebel Alliance once and for all.
This game does not follow lore.
Well that explains why CG is (quite correctly) re-balancing a bunch of powerful characters, but conveniently leaving JKR, DR, and Malak as is
the salt is strong with this one
Eh, the Advanced is better used with Tarkin. The standard TIE fighter is going to miss its TM gain, but with 5/7 slots being Bounty Hunters finding two Empire units shouldn’t be that hard. Maybe the Reaper can finally be at home.
Just wait for the counter ship, doubt it take long for it to come out.
Whatever happens, ultimate animation is awesome. Good job !
I could've refreshed the page*
The Crumb's post was not there when I commented lol
Does this mean that Slave one has the possibility of inflicting target lock 6 times on one use of his basic?
what is ur direction CG. U basically made all crewless tanks useless. So now the focus is moving away from crewless ships to the original ship design ?
Make up ur mind !!! And wth are we going to do with all the ship tanks that are crewless ? Are we getting a refund ? What is the point of a crewless tank ship if the taunt can be avoided !!??
Do you even read what ur writing into the ability !!??
So glad to see the touch up on Slave I as well! Awesome work CG!
