So, uhh… what did you guys think? Feel free to post all of your thoughts about the new game here! The Star Wars Partnership looks awesome!
I am really excited that we are going to be shooting projectiles this year, but the field does look scarily basic and open; I hope defense isn’t going to be a huge part of this game!
Anyone translate the aurebesh yet?
Stronghold 2: Electric Boogaloo
One of them reads “shield.” The other reads “take cells.”
Edit: corrected translation.
Are they going to play the Wheel of Fortune music during matches?
So, it’s 2012 but with climbing balancing instead of driving balancing and the weird color spinner thing.
Where’s the coopertition shield generator?
Not as complex as I thought it was going to be
I thought it said “take cells”?
Maybe. All the squiggles look alike and I may have jumped the gun.
The lazy suzan will be a pain In the but
Welcome back, auto! You’ve been missed.
The projectile shooting looks fun, but the wheel and the hanging part confuses me. I am also confused about how scoring will work, but it looks like we will have a very interesting build season.
The wheel is definitely interesting, I’m excited to see the hanging mechs people come up with, climbing is definitely OP, extra ranking points are very difficult this year.
I like that the 2 and 3 point goals have the same target. It awards accuracy, but means that teams don’t have to make a trade off in trying to design for an easier goal or harder goal.
The game seems to be a mashup of 2016, 2013, 2017… FUN!!
I like how the field is relatively clear this year. Not the best it’s ever been, but much better than the last four years.
Can anybody explain the function of the ‘Lazy Susan’ multi-colored wheel?
Agreed but I worry it’s going to be very challenging for spectators and scouts to determine if the power cell went into the inner or just the outer port.
