Several days ago, I created a post which discussed how I felt about the minis, their look, etc. It can be found here:
One of the predominant themes within this thread is the acceptability to most of a "sliding scale" or relative sizes of capital ships - as long as it isn't completely random.
I find this very interesting. And I have a question, one which was indicated in the title of the post.
Why is this sliding scale ok for Armada, but not X-Wing. To be clear, I am not being critical of anyone. I simply am curious, and would like to understand people's thought processes.
I have been playing X-Wing since its inception. I have been an active member and poster of the forum. And one thing I can state with complete accuracy, is that there has been a never ending stream of comments on X-Wing that the game should NEVER EVER EVER have a Star Destroyer (or similar capital ship) released for it because it would be way out of scale.
This has been the primary reason given in dozens of threads and hundreds of posts as to why major capital ships will never be made for X-Wing.
So, given the unbelievable amount of rhetoric and passion and flaming that has gone on in X-Wing about this subject, why is it now acceptable to have a sliding scale in Armada? Note that many of the posters in X-Wing who refused to accept the possibility for X-Wing, are the same posters who say it is fine for Armada.
Again, just trying to spark some debate, and grasp the thought processes being utilized ...
