First review:

Wookiee Life Debt and Raise the Stakes - http://toptiergaming.com/articles?showarticle=38

Sample:

"


Let the Wookiee Win

TGO:
A LS Force Choke with a slight draw back, if you want to call it a drawback. The DS will have to look out for people using this to anger their wookiees and push through more blast damage and kill more DS units. This also makes Sith Advisors and other Dark Side 1 health resource units a little more of a liability.

7/10

Jarrett:
Light Side finally has their own force choke, but in normal situations, it ends up being an additional one for the opponent as well. While doing one damage to any enemy unit is always useful, this card gets even better by enabling your Wookie Warriors, and when used during an engagement damaging Chewbacca you can throw an additional two damage the opponent's way, making it extremely useful in helping clear potential threats even before strikes resolve.

7/10"

I rated it a 7 if that makes you feel better. I'd probably change it to an 8 after playing more games with it. It can really swing games (but there will be times you draw it and it will at most be trying to force a focus token on an opponents unit - which then it's an over-costed Twi'lek Loyalist).

With 2 health, and a guaranteed unit damage, I'd say its on par with most of the 2 cost units.

Twi'lek Loyalist comparisons is just slander. laugh

A 2 cost card that can win you the game, well there isn't many of them out there.

I think you just like to discredit our reviews for the sake of feeling superior. This time though, you failed.

AAC1-Speeder Tank
Emperor's Royal Guard
Jedi Guardians
Echo Caverns
Rebel Assault

All are game winning cards at two-cost, especially that Echo Caverns.

Not at all, sorry if it comes across that way. I just like debating cards, isn't that what reviewing them is about? I did mean 2 cost unit, not card. The Royal Guard is great, speeder is good but needs the objective. I got in a bunch of games tonight, I still stand by it's one of the best cards in the game.

This is a bit harsh. He was just disagreeing with you.

Anyways, I'd get used to it if you're going to post your opinions about the quality of various cards.

When rating a card you have to look at the card at its best, worst and somewhere in between. Can this card win you games? There are situations where it can, but there are situations where you just play it without using the ability which makes it a 2 cost/2health twi-lek loyalist. I am a huge fan of this card but I stand by my rating of a 6. Thats because more times than not this unit will be a great roll player with a great ability that allows you to put tremendous pressure on the DS player. The times that you play it and just win are too few to rate this thing an 8 or higher.

seems like you don't like capture stuff at all. Bounty a 6? Bossk, one of the best units in the game gets a 7?
