Wave 9 Announced - Alliance Overhaul
I didn't notice this one until a bit late in the day, ( Pokemon Go has kept me busy. Gotta get them all! Sorry I forgot this was an x-wing blog ) . Wave 9 was announced by FFG today. The terrorists (I mean rebels) get a new ship, the ARC-170. The ship has some interesting concepts. 1) The first ship for the rebels that get a aux fire arc on a small base. 2) It looks like the ship only comes with unique pilots - no generics for you = no swarms. 3) You can have both a crew upgrade and an astromech upgrade at the same time. This should make some interesting combinations.
You can look at the FFG Release Page, just remember it's gonna be a while before it gets shipped.
