    Quick Build Armada?

    I think this is a very interesting idea. It could be a way to invigorate Armada - and also make it more accessible. It opens the way for new combos never seen before - and it can take away some of the obviously useful ones (so you might NOT want to feature the classic TRC90, or at least give it a higher threat rating). The only drawback is that, as always, these kinds of alternate formats are slow to catch on. Around here Quick Build X-wing is not a big thing. It's not out altogether, but I'm betting 95% is just normal 200 vs 200. That said, we do have a W2 Quick Build tourney coming up, and I do thing we had one for W1 as well. I can't play that one, but if I could I would, bc it looks fun and casual and competitive at the same time. Anyway, this is what X-wing says: "This mode of play offers players a way to create a squad quickly using predefined selections. Each ship comes with Quick Build cards that list different options for that ship. Each option consists of a ship card, a number of upgrade cards, and a threat level (a number of bars 1–5). This threat level represents the approximate strength of that particular combination of pilot and upgrade cards." It's pretty simple, no? X-wing suggest "8 threat" as good for a standard game, so let's say that's the case for Armada as well. Vader with lots of upgrades is 4 of 8, so about 50% of a list. So that means 200 points in Armada, or around 50 fleet points per threat (a more granular approach would be 25 to 1-10 threat, but I think that's too complicated). But this has to be a flexible figure: A Support Neb with Redundant Shields and High-Cap Ion turbines isn't necessarily the greatest use of said 50 points! Squadrons are easily handled: 3 A-wings and Tycho is 1 Threat. Howl and 5 TIE is 1 Threat. Etc. The hard work would be making some quick builds to being with... it need not be exhaustive, but a number of builds have to be made. Some comparative examples: TRC90 - 1 Crambo - 1 Demo with a bunch of upgrades - 2 ISD with bunch o upgrades - 3 ISD-2 flagship with Thrawn and Chimaer and a ton of upgrades - 4 Lightly built SSD - 5 Heavy SSD build - 6 (Ok so Armada has max 6 threat) Epic SSD - Can't be used Food for thought: Admirals either come glued to a specific flagship - or maybe they need not be used at all?

    SSD best guess of release date?

    Pelta. It's the same speed.

    Attack pool questions and backpedaling

    Before and the attack gets cancelled, so no adding ackbar.

    What I would like to see in 2019

    One: Armada is incredibly stale Two: Becoming acquainted with X-wing 2.0 made me remember the joys of exploring a 'new' game. Three: FFG made 2.0 X-wing the same, only better. Four: New is better than dead, right? 😀

    What I would like to see in 2019

    Armada 2.0
  14. In X-wing 2.0 the X-wing is now situationally faster than the TIE fighter 👌
  15. In X-wing game B-wings are really slow too, but can maneuver far far better than Y-wings. I'm guessing that's a big part of the equation.
