This hero sounds an awful lot like a vehicle, considering it's been 'programmed.' I just can't see how it will be anything less than a suckfest, unless it has a million hitpoints. And if it drops regular old probe droids, those things will be meat if they are deployed anywhere near turrets.

Sometimes random play on the music player has good timing...

"Bring out your dead!" (Clang!)
"Hang on. This one's not dead yet."

Between that and the new Cantina version of the song, "Every troop is sacred." Where every troop is good. When a troop is wasted...

Apologies to Python fans. The lyricist responsible for the previous blurbs has been sacked.

dev1: All right we need to make this interesting for the rebels. What can we offer?
dev2: They love Artoo right? So let's do that. Rebel participation was so high during those conflicts!
Dev1: But if every Rebel has a high level Artoo, then they won't have a mech healer anymore!
Dev2: Great scott! You're right, let's add the Treadwell in as well. Surely they will appreciate our ability to plan ahead.
Dev1: But now there's only 3 units to choose from, the pool isn't diluted enough! It's not Saturday, so don't call me Shirley.
Dev2: Add the Tognath, it's not like we just gave them a sniper skin that invalidates the Tognath for PVP combat. Just ask the intern to make something up.
Good guy Intern: I'll add the infiltrator!

Actually I would have loved it - IF - the Game Developers took Units that are "Not Useful" and therefore "Dead" and make them "Undead" that is "Useful" ;)

Hmmm... let's see... how about the ability to load Rebel Low Altitude Assault Transport (LAAT) or Empire Imperial Dropship Transport (IDT) starship strikes with 20 UC each of Units of your own choosing while also dropping the Commissioning Time for LAAT/IDT down to 1 Minute per Level (Level 10 = 10 Minutes).

Just Imagine dropping the new LAAT or IDT containing some of the Naval Assault Units which then call in Starship Strikes... now - that - would be cool! 8-)

We could also fill up the new LAAT or IDTs with some Undead Units - just perfect for this upcoming event!

Oh Well... :roll: One can dream can't they... :D
