Fantasy Flight Posts Star Wars: Legion Rules Update

When you hit a new big-number for an edition of a game, you know things are bound to be changing. Well, we're getting Star Wars: Legion Rules Reference 2.0 here, and that means a lot of updates. Many of them focus around point changes. So, if you want to make sure your army is still legal, you'll want to check it out.

From the article:

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.
