LOL!

Sorry, you are being sarcastic, right?

When I saw the title of this post I thought, "not here too!"

For those that don't know, the GOWK threads have been dominating all the other forums, especially WOTCs where DCI players want him banned from competetive play. Though it's not the CE that's bugging people, it's the fact Soresu Style Mastery can block Melee and Ranged attacks combined with Master of the Force 2 and Mettle (which does stack with itself). This means GOWK can negate an attack on a save of 3+.

So, he got banned for tournament play, the first time ever this happened for Star Wars.

Makes you think, why was this piece made in the first place at all...

But since WotC admits there is no formula to how Star Wars mini stats are designed, it´s suprising that it took that long before they had to ban a mini.

Wait... there's no system for point values? I've been trying to find one for months!

No, it's not a system. Costs aren't assigned randomly, but there's no formula.

Incidentally, GOWK was recently un-banned for DCI with a change to SSM. It now only works on non-melee attacks. It is better than plain Soresu Style because it still works on non-melee attacks from adjacent attackers.

In January, the change for SSM was removed. It now works as the card states.
