    Not seeing the issue I guess. It's a case of innocent until proven guilty. I'm going to assume all of them are 2W HI until proven otherwise (We obviously know the Liu Xing and Zhēncha aren't along with the Hulang fluff implying they aren't either).

    I also made a mistake, we have 6 (Mowang, Daoying, Zhencha, Liu Xing, Hulang, and Haidao) units. All that are potential HI in the faction that is supposed to be HI.

    So.. gathering all the intels.

    We got trusty Zuyongs, Zhanshi cannon fodders ready to become a full core link, and FOUR wildcards; which will add variety to our links.
    • Shang Ji - Tacsense confirmed, could enroll into any link, giving it another move or grab that momentum.
    • Haidaos - KHD confirmed finally, even a duo with Shang Ji will seriously upbeat its KHD proportions; Tinbot B. Yeah who needs Sants.
    • Son-Bae - Who don't like link ML?
    • Pangs - Dunno about FTO options' cost, but one fun thing; Mowangs got flammenspeer in their dossier, who want reloaded flammenspeer?
    And Haris, god we have cheap Zuyong HMG haris able, what is better, we can spice it with any wildcards we like. Oh did I mentioned Mowang duo?

    Man, this will be awesome. Even our link restriction is not that harsh; all we need is to make our wildcards live long enough.

    Sorry, the second part of my post there is more directed towards CB's marketing decisions, not you! The not-actually-HI HI that we've been shown, and can easily get more of, is a cop out.

    Yeah, the link flexibility is awesome and I'm actually hopeful.

    It's no problem. Didn't get offended! That's just the mindset I've adopted for this release. I'm liking how things are looking with both the Mowang and Hulang. I feel that they make up for the first batch. EsoEspecia with the Haidao getting a KHD.

    I'm envisioning a sitcom where a Mowang and his new partner, Pang get caught up in a lot of mischief around the Sphere.

    So we have Mowang Pang Duo, Shang Ji plopped in a Haris, Haidao in Core or Haris.

    Gents, I think we're about to hit that high point.

    This one we're not sure on yet, depends on the profile that gets it. Might have a shitty cost/weapon/gear etc, or might compete with a much better geared profile. Suryats also got TacSense, but it's only on one profile (fortunately for them it's the HMG one)

    Shang Ji Tactical Awareness is an option with Spitfire or with Combi+LFT+TinbotB.

    Have a nice weekend.

    Seems reasonably good, just need to see the costs now.

    TacSense Combi+LFT/Tinbot B is a really solid one for throwing into a fireteam; and the Spitfire one will also be decent for a good backup gunner, although if it's still stuck at 2SWC then it'll not be so great.

    Mildly disappointing that it's just two profiles though.

    That actually makes sense to me. The model with tacsense has to spend the order, if you build a link full of Shang Ji you don't wanna be paying for tacsense on all of them. It's better for flexibility if you just put it on the one or two profiles most likely to slot themselves into a link, because realistically you'd probably only wildcard one or two profiles normally anyway.

    Shang Ji core link

    Shang Ji spitfire
    Shang Ji tinbot
    wildcard Hai Dao
    wildcard Pango
    wildcard Son Bae

    7 orders for how many points I wonder. If it's the 8pt baggage bot we could be looking at 7 order HI core for 155ish points.

    I thought it was only one Wildcard per fire team.

    Good to see the Shang Ji kept their Combi+LFT, it's kind of the only thing they have going for them and it will be quite a bit more useful in a link. TacSense is also very nice for the close-in weaponry of the Shang Ji in particular as it renders them more likely to be hacked or jammed, where the second irregular order will be very handy when Isolated for killing off the offending model/repeater so the Engineer can fix them in peace.

    The info I've been getting off /tg/ has been 1 of each type per team. That could be wrong though.

    If it works as it has in other sectorials, most likely there are Special Fireteams with set compositions and separate Wildcards that can drop in anywhere. We don't know which units have which rules yet though.

    It's definitely better your way. Here's hoping it actually is.

    This is what I'm working off

    Haido Special Support Group Special Fireteam. Wildcard Trooper. Up to 1 Haido can join any Fireteam
    Tai Sheng Zuyong Invincibles NCO Counts as a Zuyong for Fireteam composition
    Zuyong invincibles Special Fireteam: Haris 1 Zuyong (Fireteam: Haris) + 2 Yan Huo FTO
    Son-Bae Yaokong Special Fireteam. Wildcard Trooper Up to 1 Son-Bae can join any Fireteam
    Yaopu Pangguling Special Fireteam. Wildcard Trooper Up to 1 Pangguling FTO can join any Fireteam
    Shang Ji Invincibles Special Fireteam. Wildcard Trooper Up to 1 Shang Ji can join any Fireteam

    If this holds out to be accurate only the Pangos and Yan Huo have specific profiles limited to joining fire teams.

    The Daoying confuses me even more after learning that it's an Sun Tze academy graduate or some shit. It's armed with MSRs and... AP mines?

    I'm hoping it's not supposed to be some goofy mini Sun Tze2 Strategos Sniper, that would be a mess.

    I remember reading somewhere about them getting Advanced Command... they are going to be really expensive it feels. Hopefully the Advanced Command is just for the Boarding Shotgun profile and the MSR is like a FO profile. Kind of like Vassily.
