Indianapolis, IN

Seems like the game has mostly fallen off the map, especially since X-Wing 2.0. Do people still play? Has the game changed much since the first wave of units?

Plenty of people playing in Cali. The new units are definitely played, though I wouldn't say the meta has changed significantly. Its still largely trooper spam.

I got in on the cheap during black Friday sales. Having a blast painting them up but haven't played yet. The new units seem to be close conbat experts ( wookies and royal guard). Generic commanders are coming soon so you don't have to have expensive named characters.

There's a good chunk of people in my area who have it. They've even done a tournament last month.

Trouble is, they and others are often more focused on Star Wars Destiny...

Still being played in GA. It's fallen off a bit from the release hype, but still alive and kicking.

All problems can be solved with proper use of a high powered rifle and a water tower

It gets played some, but the big problem is just that there's no Rebel players. I'm not sure if they're actually weaker, but Imperial armies feel way cooler and get all the love at least around here. (totally part of the problem there...)

Still going strong in my area! The meta has opened up a fair bit, with much more variety in commanders and units available each side has four different "heroes" (three commanders and one operative), and all of them are used at least in some lists.

Right now the Airspeeder is very weak but most of the other units see a fair bit of play.

We'll find out soon enough eh.

I'm still collecting the models I want, but I've struggled to find a group that leans towards the narrative play side of things rather than the more competitive focus that seems typical of FFG games.

I need to acquire plastic Skavenslaves, can you help?

I have to say that I'm very interested in this topic as well. I have an FLGS fairly close to me that I know sells the game and has tables open most of the time (as long as they don't have specific tournaments running that day). I just don't know if anyone is actually playing it. I also have a bad habit of buying way too much... like making sure I have enough miniatures for an entire army rather than just the starter to see if I enjoy it.

Well you could ask the FLGS staff. If there is a night that they notice Legion showing up they'll let you know. Or maybe have contact info for a home group.

It's interesting. FFG's normally quite competitive, but for Legion Organized Play has released a lot of narrative missions or "Operations" on their site - maybe see if there's interest in doing an Operation based event in your area?

I have at least two orders of magnitude less than zero interest in engaging with the Organised Play system. I like to play with a regular group of people who I know at least moderately well, enough to feel safe making cool conversions or non-standard basing in the knowledge there's no referee for them to go snivelling to because my counts-as Veers is 1.271mm shorter than the Official FFG Miniature, and no desire to do that kind of thing anyway.

One look at the reaction from most of FFG's usual crowd on social media to people choosing to put their models on thinner bases because the official plinth-thingies are awful demonstrated thoroughly to me that I just don't agree with the general attitudes among FFGs fanbase and never will.

Only having 2 factions is off putting to most wargamers, so I expect Legion's popularity will probably take off once the Clone Wars factions are released.

And since Legion is on the lower end of my priority list for painting, as soon as Clone Wars stuff come out, I might just sell what I have and buy a small Clone force.

No, there has not even been an announcement article yet so it is still a way off.
