Hello, Star Wars Miniatures players.
Last year was…unusual, to say the least. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected everyone’s lives, and unfortunately we are not out of the woods just yet. It’s going to take a bit more time and a lot more patience before we get through this episode of history, which brings us to our announcement today.
We at Atomic Mass Games believe that our first priority is the health and safety of our staff and community. As the vaccine is being distributed, we wish to remain extra cautious, and so we have decided to delay all Star Wars Miniatures World Championships until 2022.

Atomic Mass Games is working on plans for Organized Play in 2021. One of our focuses is using Organized Play as a vehicle to expand upon the core game experience through use of events that feature alternate game modes, highly focused narrative events, and an emphasis on equally rewarding everyone who plays, especially at the in-store level, where communities for these great games thrive.
We are looking forward to bringing our Organized Play philosophy to these great Star Wars miniatures games while continuing the types of events these games have enjoyed throughout their time under the watch of Fantasy Flight Games. Beyond the store level we are taking a hard look at the current global situation, as our primary concern is always for the safety and health of our players and global community.

Hello Legion players! Legionnaires? Good people of Star Wars™: Legion!
It is our pleasure to announce Rules Reference Guide 2.0, which features the 2020 competitive points rebalancing. This update represents a major overhaul to the game, so we’d like to take a moment to highlight some of the key changes.
Following our philosophy of trying to lift units up rather than lop off the tall poppies, we’re happy to report that the majority of changes involve points reductions to lesser-used units. In particular, we applied a host of points reductions aimed at bringing all the vehicles of the game up to the level of the TX-130 Saber-class fighter tank and the AAT. Furthermore, to help trooper units combat this new menace, we’ve applied steep discounts to numerous anti-armor heavy weapons across all factions. Additionally, we’ve made an effort to increase the viability of Rebel and Imperial Corps units with targeted reductions to certain units alongside these heavy weapon discounts.
In addition to points changes, we’ve also applied a small number of impactful errata to units and cards that we felt needed more attention than just a points reduction. Notably, the T-47 Airspeeder gains “attack surge: critical” on its surge chart, and both the Wookiee Warriors and Chewbacca gain increased mobility with the Scale keyword and extra lethality with the Duelist and Lethal 1 keywords, respectively. We try to tread very carefully indeed when it comes to changing what actually appears on a card, but from time to time we feel that an errata is necessary to address fundamental deficiencies or imbalances that points changes cannot fully solve.
This Rules Reference Guide also contains several important changes to some foundational keywords, in an attempt to make the units that possess those keywords more effective—and more fun. These are the most significant changes:
This is a change we thought long and hard about, because it will have serious ramifications for the Grand Republic faction. Numerous alternatives were tested and ultimately discarded, because we kept coming back to the same core issues. Widespread standby token sharing is problematic for several reasons; it is too powerful, too frustrating for the opponents of the Republic, and it leads to highly non-interactive game states.
In many cases, the right move when playing against a Republic army with access to numerous standby tokens is to simply not engage. When a mechanic is able to punish players severely for doing what they need to do to win the game—namely, attack the enemy and advance toward objectives—it can feel like there’s no right answer. We want to encourage interactive games and keep Star Wars: Legion approachable, and in order to do that, the rule had to change. The simplest and best solution was simply to remove the option to share standby tokens from the core rules of clone troopers.
Republic units with the Exemplar keyword like Padmé Amidala and Anakin Skywalker will still be able to utilize this powerful ability, but by limiting it to key characters it is now more targeted in scope and limited in scale.
It’s our sincere hope that the sum of these changes will lead to a more balanced, interesting, and dynamic game for fans of all four factions. We can’t wait to see what new lists and strategies the players cook up!
