The customization options on the Empire side are strange. Faces? Are we gonna be helmetless stormtroopers?
There are Imperials other than troopers that wear faceless helmets, some don't wear helmets, and who knows what content will be available from episode VII

It doesn't look like we're getting Imperial Officers, Death Star trooper, etc. sans DLC. (I'd love to get an officer customization!) Just stormtroopers.

Can you play the game on the Android app or you just get the stats?

Yeah but in the OT there are no helmetless Stormtroopers (Luke and Han don't count).

maybe they could've atleast put in imperial officer outfits or some of these other ones
There are plenty of directions to go, but I think they cheaped out or at least wanted to keep consistency with the rest of the body for clarity purposes. Maybe even Disney wanted that for an "authentic" feel of each of the battles being recreated (forgot Heroes showing up in places they shouldn't be..). Still crummy, as I'd rather a bit messier looking of a battlefield than shitty customization options.

I think the face customization, if present for Imperials, will be for those that do not wear helmets or wear faceless helmets. I doubt we will see helmetless troopers as based on everything we've seen and heard, Dice is staying true to OT and canon.

Maybe we will see DLC such as AT-ST Driver, Imperial Navy Troopers (seen in Death Star ep IV), Officers, etc.

I don't have an XBONE or PS4 once I get too far in it I hope I don't lose out.

never played a game like this before it seems simple but I like the depth to it.
anything similar in style on the iPhone?

what kind of Genre of game is this? do they do board games like this?

anyone got any tips for Base Command, specifically when you start encountering enemies with heavy weapons?

I figure i need better cards sooooooo i'm trying to unlock the Heroes but having to play as Luke/Leia/Han 20 times seems like it's going to take a long ass time
