  1. Per the other LVO thread this is the 12th place list: Assault Frigate Mk2 B (72) • Admiral Ackbar (38) • Intel Officer (7) • Gunnery Team (7) • Electronic Countermeasures (7) • Linked Turbolaser Towers (7) = 138 Points Assault Frigate Mk2 B (72) • Intel Officer (7) • Gunnery Team (7) • Electronic Countermeasures (7) • Linked Turbolaser Towers (7) = 100 Points Pelta Assault Ship (56) • Ezra Bridger (3) • Engine Techs (8) • Intensify Firepower! (6) • External Racks (3) = 76 Points GR-75 Medium Transports (18) • Hondo Ohnaka (2) • Comms Net (2) = 22 Points GR-75 Medium Transports (18) • Comms Net (2) = 20 Points Squadrons: • 4 x A-wing Squadron (44) = 44 Points Total Points: 400 Most Wanted, Hyperspace Migration, Contested Outpost
  2. Our local store in the USA confirmed the 31st is the official release date for them.
  3. Normal rules are that the first player goes first every round as well as activates squadrons first in the squadron phase. If you win the "bid", you choose if you want to be first or second for the entire game.
  4. That's how I read it - the person claiming the companion ticket fills it out and puts your name as the name of the champion.
  5. One lesson I've learned, too many times I might add, is to not shortcut anything for the sake of convenience except for one time (in the game) - in some games towards the end of the game it's clear to both you and your opponent that the game is going to end very soon and so I will often simply say something like "ok, it looks like the game is about over so what are the rest of the possible points". That gets both of us into a state where we can talk it out and agree on shortcuts together to bring the game to an end where we can skip non-meaningful steps. You can come to a gentleman's agreement like you describe. Otherwise, if you try and take shortcuts any other time, you have to understand you will get bitten by it at some point. I would also take the competitiveness of your opponent in mind before trying any shortcuts at any time, as well as the level of the tournament. Sorry that happened to you, it's really frustrating when you think you've communicated something clearly to your opponent but it ends up being received/processed differently than you intended, leading to awkward gaming.
  6. Warlords is a bit incomplete with the programming for SSD stuff. Haven't used Fabs in a while. The iOS Armada Fleet Builder is maintained.
  7. I also tried it with my group and we've had a couple issues, but overall this is great work! One issue we had was the first commander skill wasn't showing up as a drop down. I don't remember the others, but this is really useful.
  8. Did they edit the page? I don't see where it says the ships are joining the fight early next year. " Join us for Star Wars™: Armada action on November 19th with a stream showing off the new ships joining the fight. Developers Brooks and Michael will be on hand to show off the new Nadiri Starhawk and Onager-Class Star Destroyer! "
  9. I think you're right that it will need an FAQ because I can see it both ways. It doesn't say "to a minimum of 1" like Gallant Haven does, so it looks to me like the timing window does allow you to apply it before the brace, but it's unclear if that's the intention. The Brace effect timing is "When damage is totaled during the“Resolve Damage” step, the total is reduced to half, rounded up." from RRG Defense Tokens page 4. EST just says "you may reduce the total damage from the attack". Anyway, interesting thoughts in the article, thanks for sharing.
  10. How about Linked Turbolaser Towers in AFIIs, especially with Ackbar (from the new campaign box coming in a matter of weeks)?
  11. Yeah, I'm skeptical... I just hope it isn't released barely before the LVO and is legal.
  12. That's exactly what I was thinking for me too if I go. I wonder how close this will be to the actual SSD release.
  13. The Armada one says that event is Friday, but then says the top cut on Sunday and the final rounds on Saturday. Seems like that can't be true. X-Wing has heat 1 on Friday and heat 2 on Saturday, so it might be possible to sign up for Armada plus one other thing as long as you don't make the Armada top cut.
  14. Bring a bag of candy or nuts and share with fellow players around you - people are usually less grouchy when they have a little snack. Also, record the result of your games played in case there's a mistake and it can be caught and corrected before the next round starts!
