Hi Guys,

I am so close to caving and getting into Legion but I wanted to find out if you think the game has much replay value?

My concerns are:

- Like X-Wing you will need to buy all releases to get one or two upgrade cards (I cannot afford to do this)

- With Empire vs Rebels is there going to be further Armies that are playable that add variety?

* I really want to see whole new factions and even Clone Wars releases smile.gif

* Playing the same (or very similar) lists would be very boring very quickly.

How are you finding the game?

Many thanks & Happy Gaming,

Having to chase upgrades was one of the things that FFG said they want to fix, so far that's been true.

Time will tell with factions.

I've been playing Legion since it dropped.

The cards you get with getting only one faction so Xwing style doesn't exist which definitely was a big draw card for me.

The 2 sides are Empire and Rebels. The upgrades are flagged as light and dark side which allows spread of time periods they could go with. At the moment the focus seems to be on movies 5-6. Seeing FFG and their Destiny and Imperial Assault releases I am sure we will see other time periods included but nothing I have seen or read is finite just all speculation and wishes.

At the moment with the current releases the games can be a little same same. Can't really change that until more units drop. Even just the addition of the Spec Ops units will be great as you wont see the same troops lists and will see some variety. The operative add on allows so much opportunity also as Boba is an operative which opens up Chewie, Bosk, IG88, R2 etc.

The game plays well. A little bit of Xwing plus Imperial Assault plus 40k. Movement is smooth, dice pool mechanics are quite nifty once you get a handle on it. The initiative bidding is not the novelty I thought it would be and does add a tactics opportunity for the more experienced player.

Hope that helps.
