So if this thing is a trap, I am assuming that it can be destroyed by units that target traps?

I have noticed that it uses CB to build/upgrade and not alloy like other traps. Curious if it will take CB to reset as well

Slightly related but does anyone know how using rancor and krayt dragons will work on attacks. Will it require the beacon?

It's part trap (hidden) and part deka: it takes cb to upgrade, it takes time to reset, it can be triggered on defense or used on offense.

690 CB to upgrade to level X. No prestige level for the Beacon.

No cost to reset, only time requirement to “Capture the creature” you have selected

Then, any vanguard/Shock Trooper or Han Solo can blow it up like a trap? It seems it takes a long time and a worker droid to be reset like a deka.

But aren't Rancors useless against Jets/Jumps? Or they changed this and I don't know? So, what the good use for Imperial players in attacking with this thing when most of Rebel bases use buffed Jets in SC? If everyone only uses Jets/Jumps to attack, what is the point to use this thing in defense unless to burn cb you can't use only to upgraded it?

Rancors are cool, I like them, then we will be able to unlock, upgrade and use them in squad wars? This is the good thing I'm seeing. A Hunter Rancor attacking a base while holding Tako and Dando Ops is the most funny and furious beast I've seen in this game.

And remembering, all special Rancors are attached to Barracks, and they get the OPs boost, except the normal Rancor, that is a Merc, is this still right?

this will be interesting, but I think it'll be at least 1w5d until anyone knows for sure... unless someone here uses crystals to unlock Prestige level earlier than 1w5d. I'll be building this Strix beacon as soon as possible. Even if the rancors that pop out of it can't attack jets/jumps, the rancors will "tank" (aka meat shield) for the turrets that CAN take out the jets/jumps, so I think it'll be useful on defense.
