    Looks interesting, but hard to tell if it’s revolutionary for Rogue One like Mothma or Iden was.
  • Weird that they add a second rouge one lead, but make you want the only other leader in this squad too.

    Loving this though!

    I feel bad for Raddus. All his hard work led to a ship being named after him that some psycho Betty flew into another ship. What a legacy.
  • How about actual content like a raid or new game mode rather than toons all the time and copy msf. You've never been more boring cg than now.

    Same squad, jyn lead for TW and admiral raddus for GA?
  • Bummed that his in-game outfit isn't the cool teal color from the film and from his character portrait. And that one of his abilities isn't called "I Say We Fight" (Big miss there :) But thrilled he's in the game and seems like a potential good counter to Troopers?

    Looks like a great character. My only problem is that, I may be wrong, he uses the same animation as akrabar on his first 2 ability's. I may also be wrong on this, but I believe this is the first character since Sith marauder added to not have unique animations. it isn't a huge deal, I just like seeing unique animations.

    Nice animation on Hope buff Screen.
    For more buff like that.

    I don't think this is necessarily going to beat Palp lead, but it's clearly designed to swat Iden & Veers squads.

    It also allows me to actually gear up my old RogueOne toons without regretting it. I never did the Ackbar/rebels fleet with Bistan, so I've got Bistan, SRPf, and Phoenix all below g12. If I'm taking more of Rogue1 to relic, I might as well include those two and beef up my Rebels fleet.

    Of course, those come after Inquisitors and Malgus, so... not necessarily instantly. The only real good thing here is that they don't require any Kyros outside of the g12-finisher piece.
  • Why is Hope just as good if not better than starkillers star destroyer drop? Protection disruption and heal immunity? Starkiller deserved that, not a Marquee character. 🙄

    Just noticed that Hope also allows you to nuke Nest. It will be interesting to see how often (and in what circumstances) that changes how Nest is used in GAC/TW.

    Getting ready for the Andor show?
    Forget the gear crunch, why can't we sim the Sith raid yet?

    We're going to get Antoc Merrick's X-Wing before Red Five.

    Players: We don't have enough ships for all the capitals.
    CG: Don't worry! We're going to take one of the fleets that can actually be filled and split it into two half-fleets!

    Most characters with blasters share a Basic with other characters. Not sure about since Marauder. (Also why Marauder? His basic might be the same as Sid but his special’s definitely unique.)

    They're also technically incorrect, as Piett has minor retools of pre-existing animations, and Omega shares 2/3 animations with Nightsister Acolyte. Additionally, while not a character animation, the particle animation for "hope" and Blue Squadron Air Support is unique to Raddus.

    However, they do bring up an interesting point: between animation reuses and the number of spelling errors in this kit reveal, Raddus feels somewhat.... Sloppy. It's like they didn't really care about him and just put him in to fill out a quota, even though his kit is unique among rebels, it just seems to be missing that something that previous releases have. He doesn't even have unique character art! They just reuse a promotional image of him, and the character model is the completely wrong colour (for his jacket)

    I didn't realize about omega. She looked unique to me, but now that you mention it, I see it. And yes, he does look kind of sloppy. I am thinking this is more of a piett situation. He is a good a good character, but he is intended for the capital ship. there is no way they aren't adding the profundity at some point.
