There can I find this prohibition for Apollos to directly deploy exactly? I looked through the FAQ and apparently I overlooked it.

Top of page 5 of the main rules FAQ:

Q. Can an aircraft/fast mover with the transition rule direct deploy?
A. No, unless specifically stated in a special rule or scenario, units that are Aircraft or Fast Movers with Transition may not direct deploy. This also applies to any Walkers that have any transition options in their stat lines (e.g Annihilators and Apollos). They may not Direct Deploy.

Thanks a lot.

Really dislike that change and even more how hidden it is. It is silly to put it into that question.

Am I right in interpreting that the Apollos thus MUST have a transport? Or can they walk on?

They can walk on they just cannot start on the table, which is frankly very silly.

They could not do that anyway considering how their special rules worked and that they cannot fly/"hop" in turn 1 which makes it silly to include them in the units forbidden to directly deploy which was mainly aimed at aircraft. If it was to force them to take drop ships I could list a number of units that should not be allowed to directly deploy.

Oh, no argument. Frankly I think the game is not benefiting from direct deploy, from either the IP (DROPzone, or DROPfleet) or from a game balance sense.

But one has to consider walk ons as part of this game's evolving meta.

I imagine that they'll address that in DZC 2.0. Betcha.

Dave stated quite clearly, and I wasn't the only person around the table, that the passage in that FAQ that prohibits Apollos from being Direct Deployed is "bullshit".

"Oh, that's bullshit."

Yes, that's "I heard Dave say" kind of information, but I didn't overhear it, he said it directly to me, and I have witnesses.

Hopefully we'll get an update to the FAQ soon. Hopefully... :roll:
