Fantasy Flight Games has released X-Wing FAQ update v4.3.0 which includes some major changes to some of the tournament staple card abilities.  The four card erratas included in this update affect Manaroo, Emperor Palpatine, TIE/x7, and Zuckuss.

One of the most subtle yet significant changes involves the mighty Emperor Palpatine.  As seen below, the original card text allows Emperor Palpatine to change a friendly ships die result to any other die result.  This allowed the card owner to roll first and then decide if Palpatine’s ability was needed.

With the new card errata in place, you must now declare the use of Emperor Palpatine before dice are rolled as seen below.  How will this affect the popular Palp Aces list?  Time will tell.
