What about a “no cross era heroes weekend”?

Just to test this out once we get a bit more heroes, and if feedback is positive maybe it could stay

    First Order would always get shredded

    That’s the main issue right now, but I don’t know how to fix the sequels... but in the other eras I think it should be ok

    Can work for people who want authenticity, but probably not for people who want to choose the heroes they want (if it's cross-era), but I personally don't mind either way

    Same, I’m neutral in the whole cross era thing.

  • I'd be fine with it, but the shock of the change to the game vehicle and hero weekend bring wouldn't be there.

    One way No Cross Era can work on sequels

    1. Remove Luke, Han, Leia, from the sequel heroes pool. Thus the Sequels only have Finn, Rey, and Chewbacca. Add Bossk as a sequel villain because there's no reason why he wouldn't still be around as a Bounty Hunter

    Maybe snoke and hux could be added
  • No cross-era and max two heroes per side... I’d play it.

    No thanks, we're fine.
  • Not enough heroes for sequel era? The other eras would be fine.
  • Poe and Hux, Snoke and Maz are likely additions at some point. Plus whomever comes out of Episode 9. But I'd like to see the Luke, Han, Leia, Chewie and Lando...IF THEY ARE LIMITED TO THEIR SEQUEL APPEARANCES ONLY.

    The Hero cap on sequel maps would be limited to the total number of EVEN HEROES AND VILLAINS. So if there are only four sequel villains then you should only be able to play max 4 heroes per side at a time... But similar to these new event rules you can use all heroes at all times.

    I'm all for it. But I doubt they'll even throw us that tiny bone. They've decided this game is only for the hero players.

    My friends and I haven't played GA in more than three months, but we'd give it another try if they did a no-cross-era heroes change. It used be be one of my favorite modes.

    Do you mean the "no cross-era heroes" event were discussing? Or the current hero event?

    I meant the no cross era heroes... But the current event has been great. I'm all for combining the two.

    Just a thought. Sequel trilogy lacks villains.

    Yours was the first one in the thread so that is what I responded to. I disagree also with the passing the torch comment... the majority of the ones I listed had major roles in multiple eras (Palpatine/Chewbacca in particular).

    But I’m certainly not alone in feeling that Han, Leia, Chewbacca, and especially Luke were given short shrift in the sequels.

    It's hard to go by whether a character did much in their respective movies. By that standard, Lando really shouldn't be a hero, or Bossk, or Boba Fett, or the Emperor. It's more about what they're able to do, what they could do if they were in the situation.

    That said, having a major role shouldn't mean automatic inclusion, either. Yoda had a major role in the OT, but it doesn't make sense for him to be an OT hero.

    We shouldn't be too strict in our criteria, but we also shouldn't just include someone because they were in the movie -- especially when that inclusion unbalance the sides.
  • Just to test this out once we get a bit more heroes, and if feedback is positive maybe it could stay

    The main issue is that First Order would get destroyed since they would only have two heroes, and the Resistance would have six.

    That’s why I said once we get more heroes (if we get more of the sequels), and I agree completely with you, but just let’s see if it works for other eras

    Well, Chewie was still big. He shot Kylo, a bunch of troopers, ran from space octopi, and flew the Falcon at Crait, went to find Luke, etc. Han got stabbed, Leia was in a coma after her force incident, and Luke fake force ghosted. Then actually died. The irony.
