Their first preview has focused on the Blue Force user cards rather than the Red Command or Yellow Rogue themed cards.
Ahsoka Tano who first appeared in The Clone Wars animated film in 2008 makes a welcome entry to the game.
Ahsoka is going to be a stable basis for damage output as she rocks two Melee Damage on two sides.
If you add on the new Shoto Lightsaber, Ahsoko becomes a bit of a melee machine especially if you are able to keep enough resources to hand to get two activations from her per turn.
Blue Hero characters overall are also getting some support from the new Training Remote which can modify any symbol on four of its sides.
One possible combination could be Mace Windu with his incredibly threatening three damage sides, one of which is a four damage, being support by the Training Remote to secure two turn kill potential.
On the side of Villains, we’ve seen plenty of new cards too, the most striking being one of the Rebels more persistent foes, the Grand Inquisitor.
The Grand Inquisitor is an incredibly versatile character and leads not only through attack but also through his two focus that he can use to increase the output of his allies.
More terrifying though is his Special Ability side which can see you not only remove opponents dice, but also deal damage while doing so.
Combine this with Force Throw and you have amazing dice mitigation through just one character.
The introduction of Kill Them All is going to introduce a real threat to the meta where three and four character decks have been performing well.
Now running multiple cheap non-unique characters like Padawans or Hired Guns could leave you open to this new event.
It’s great to see FFG continue to add new elements to the game while also making design changes to keep overpowered deck combinations in check.
The Empire at War card set should be released in Q3 of 2017.
Have you been playing any Star Wars: Destiny?
