Yes, it can.
If I play a card that allows me to play an upgrade, can I play a Superior Plating/Jetpack/Cannon without needing to play Tech Research
Jetfire’s wording of “put” is different than “play”, which does circumvent the restrictions on cards like Superior Jetpack
and Superior Plating.
Given Hunker Down
, which says "Flip each of your characters from bot mode to tank mode. Then for each of your tanks that isn't upgraded with an Armor, put an Armor on it from your scrap pile", bypasses the requirement to play Tech Research
for Superior Plating, does the same apply to Jetfire
, whose wording is "When you flip to this mode - Put an Armor or Utility from your scrap pile onto this character"?
I was wondering about Sergeant Chromia from Wave 3 and how the Alt mode flip ability works. Does the flip ability work in saying that you can play any blue armor upgrade, like possibly Superior Plating as an example, along with your original upgrade and action, or is it saying that the player is able to play an additional blue armor upgrade from hand along with their own upgrade and action on that turn?
Sergeant Chromia’s flip ability asks you to play a blue armor right then. If you don’t, you’ve forfeited the opportunity to do so. Your normal upgrade play and action play aren’t affected by this. The flip ability does not allow playing Superior Plating without previously having played Tech Research
Yes, but only if you’ve already played Tech Research
’s ability doesn’t get around that requirement.
Can Leap of Faith
bypass the condition on all the Superior cards (Cannon, Jet pack, Plating) and allow you to attach them to a bot?
