Very random, sorry. But can someone please explain the interaction between Fire Control and Mimetic Combat Processor? For example, would PROXY's base attack become +5, and then when he copies someone, his attack would not be raised by Fire Control? Or is it always raised? VERY CONFUSING!

Here is the interaction:

Fire Control

If this character is in your squad, non-Unique allied Droid characters get a +4 bonus to Attack.

So since PROXY is a unique character, he would not benefit from Fire Control

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand now I feel very stupid :oops:

I wasn't looking at Fire Control, just MCP when I thought of this. So I have learned my lesson: know the effects you are asking about!

Well, mostly so that this thread doesn't become COMPLETELY useless, I am just wondering... What WOULD the interaction be between PROXY and any effect/CE that effects droids that grants a straight up bonus to attack? (I'm pretty sure there is no such thing, but maybe in the future at some time...)

Since I have no official WotC capacity to give an official answer I can only logically speculate.

MCP, it grants a Stat replacement to the character. kinda of like a stat Boost, but permanent. You could equate it to a character with both Cunning Attack and Opportunist.. no matter who they attack, they will get one of the bonuses, and since they both boost the same stats by the same amount, its in effect, a permanant boost.

Now if a character, say an Aqualish Assassin were in a squad with Mas, Jabba, Crime Lord and Thrawn.

Now the AA would get the boost from Cunning or Opportunist, as well as the stat boost from Thrawn's Commander Effect.

And since MCP is an SA that gives a 'stats boost' then I would say that Fire Control would apply in both a Pre-MCP and a post-MCP situation.

A character with MCP and under the effect of Fire Control would need to copy another characters stats higher than its own, so it would need to copy a character with an attack greater than their Base + Bonus(in PROXY's case it would be +5 IF he were non-unique).

Furthermore, after the stats have been changed, then Fire Control would again apply, grant +4 to their attack.

Hope that helps :D

Mimetic Combat Processor: Once per turn during this character's activation, choose on Medium character with Melee Attack within 6 squares. This character can use the chosen character's Defense, Attack, and Damage ratings if they are higher than its own. It must use all the chosen character's ratings; if any of them is worse than its own, it cannot use this ability. This character uses the chosen character's ratings for the rest of the skirmish or until it chooses another eligible character.


The interaction of Proxy with CE's would not change at all do to the use of MCP. Anything that would normally affect a UNIQUE DROID would affect Proxy as normal. You are simply substituting the base stats for the round until it activates again and does a recheck.

The way the game is currently you have Darth Revan being able to give it intuition from the CE and that is about it.
