  1. Thematically speaking, if you have to eliminate that one leader too many, is it because Cassian Andor shoots them in the back?
  2. I like the idea and initiative of a fan-brew expansion. So, thumbs up for that! Will those new units only become available after a certain condition is met? Why else would someone not produce TIE Defenders, if they cost the same as TIE Fighters, while being three times as good?
  3. And thus you fell into my incomplete-code trap! I guess writers of Spanish feel the same way about how the most people write questions and exclamations.
  4. I'm a bit confused by the bracket ranges. They are 6, 9, and 11 across respectively, aside from the tails. I see that they were chosen to be evenly sized in the ALLxALL, but I don't think that makes epistemological sense. Could you explain your rationale for doing so?
  5. I'd offer you a place to stay, but I'm not exactly around the corner from Arlanda either.
  6. I agree, but I think that as rules for vehicles and vehicle combat go - especially at the time when this game was published - this was pretty much as simple as it got for non-fantasy RPGs.
  7. Honestly, just for personal reasons, I'm kind of content that Armada is a little comatose at the moment. There's so much change in my life that I would not be able to keep up. I'm also giving X-Wing (1st ed) another look because I have much of the stuff (though few of the expansions from the past 2 years), and it's a good gateway drug for some of the locals who are still enslaved to GW. Furthermore, in my household there are more of the RPG-ing sort of people, with whom I can use the X-Wing (and maybe Armada) stuff to flesh out our WEG D6 RPG experience. I even wrote some rules to have X-Wing provide the visual and tactile gaming aids. But, I think you're all quite right that Armada's comatoseness is like strangulation for the Armada-playing community.
  8. Hm, I think Uppsala might be do-able for me. Östersund, is a bit far of a drive, but if I get my host hooked at an upcoming little tournament in Karlskoga, and then Uppsala, who knows. Taking the train on my own seems like a bit of an ordeal.
  9. Nope, it's not irrational. It's just rational from a "relative-gains" (political) perspective, rather than "absolute-gains" (economic) perspective. As social beings, we're actually wired to think in relative-gains terms, because we know that there is only so much stuff to go around the group, and we need to maintain our share. Unfortunately, FFG can disregard us in their own relative-gains struggle against Games Workshop, because we don't eat into GW's pie, while Legion does. Because with nothing to fill the gaping hole in your desires, you Rebels may succumb to the lure of the Dark Side and give in to your addiction.
  10. "Arguably"? Arguably according to whom? A whole bunch of books whose canonicity was tossed in the trash a couple of years ago? Maybe it's also part of the SJW-ness of Disney to suggest that if a world becomes an industrial center for starship-building that this may have a bad influence on its environment and socio-economic conditions. But anyway, this thread is about an upcoming live-action program, and not bellyaching about how much previous films have disappointed us. I'm pretty psyched about it, and think that a show centered on Cassian Andor could be pretty awesome, but also pretty gritty. And they've just gotta have K2-SO with Alan Tudyk.
  11. WHAT?? I call bias! The TO is saying that the Galactic Empire should not win - which is the reverse of how it ought to be. The Empire should always win.
