    Looks awesome. Can't wait to use in her with some Troopers.

    This looks amazing.
    I've found this whole experience to be very enlightening.

    Thank you for evaluating. Your feedback is appreciated.
  • Sounds a little like zombie for Troopers, except no taunt.
    Wat, me worry?
  • Very interesting - I didn't see it anywhere, but I assume this is a Marquee? Also interesting how her full name is "Inferno Squad" - do we expect a rebel version of her to come out too??
  • Thanks for the response!
  • At first glance her kit looks absolutely bonkers. But then I realized she’s useless when teamed up with Piett, Veers and/or Gideon, making her quite balanced afterall. Definitely an interesting kit, but not really sure if we needed a character like this?
  • I'm sure the theory crafters will come up with something, but there seem to be a lot of OOTA tidbits to her kit. Does any IT that isn't part of the current core IT squad have the ability to create OOTAs?
  • Unique 2 but no Unique 1 ? Typo or a skill is missing ?

    Not just them, but Dark Trooper too (since you also can't really use Droid ITs). It's gonna be interesting to see what team the community comes up with for her.

    The biggest one I can think of is Range Trooper.

    Who is not considered a flex spot in the current IT lineup. My prediction is that she becomes best in slot 5th under the current IT squad. But I hope I'm wrong :)

    Her two turn CD special does OOTAs. Ranged Trooper is the only other one and, although that's part of the core squad, Veers, Piett, Starck, Death, and Gideon have been performing on par with V, P, S, G, and Ranged in the current GAC season (although in much smaller numbers) so that could be a viable swap going forward.

    By the looks of it they will likely be a defensive team comprised of annoying, tanky troopers. Or as a counter to MM/Geos with the omicron. I hardly think she can take on meta teams

    She makes 4 of your unused troopers really strong defensive GAC squad (offense too), one toon enhancing other 4 is always good, and the more variety in your GAC squads, the more flexible you can be

    I think its a great addition, like Dash Rendar boosted Qira, YOLO etc back into meta

    Missed that on her special. That coupled with her 100% TM start and auto revive... yeah... seems like she could be a pain in GAC without Range.

    Regarding Range, it depends on the size of the fish you take down with your IT.

    yeah biggest difference is that the revive can be prevented unlike zombies

    So annihilate, execute etc type abilities work on her

    Yes, absolutely, it’s great if she can make unused characters viable. The question that remains is if they can compete in the current meta. Unused troopers are unused for a reason, so they’d have to get buffed quite a lot in order to replace some of the usual teams currently used in GAC.

    My prediction is they will at best become sort of an annoying timeout squad, where it’s pretty much a game of whack-a-mole unless you can bring someone that prevents revives.

    well the empire needed a character that removes debuffs, its better than nothing, plus it probably be very useful if you play it with the right cards

    I think another benefit of Iden could be increasing the damage of Troopers in CPIT. Her passive of 30% Offense to Troopers should stack really really well with Emperor's Trap. Not saying it will add all that much, but it could be a nice boost.
  • I wonder how her IT squad would do against full CLS comps, they are a common defense team in GAC, and having her countering it could free some other teams. Same for MM teams, with Kyle Katarn they are becoming a little more of a challenge, her kit seem to counter OOTAs but one thing is on paper...

    OOTA + Rebels means she has a good chance of beating both teams, her starting at 100% TM and stunning Kyle Katarn might introduce a stress free counter to MM + KK teams on defense which are meta

    You prob need her omicron though to beat MM teams
  • Conquest new toon ?
  • This kit is CRACKED. Quite excited, she deserves to be as amazing as this currently seems.
  • After gideon take some remnant troopers away, iden steps in and save other regular troopers.
  • I was hoping for the rest of her squad. Seyn, Del and Hask. But I can settle for this, nonetheless it's great to finally see her in the game.
