  1. I would buy the new releases if anyone in Canada had some at a reasonable price, but that doesn't seem to be the case from my searches. Just because I can afford the higher rate does not mean I will pay it, that is stupid for some plastic and paper. I want to say I still get excited about this game but that would be a lie, and its all because of the poor release schedule and supply efforts (don't care if they "promised" to fix it, I have little faith in modern FFG so Ill believe it when I see it). Getting squadrons is a pain (and pack 2 is a trash option that isn't worth the money), getting new releases has become a hassle as I need to either get online as they drop or snag a preorder before they sell out, and the releases are so slow and far between that by the time they come out I only buy them because I am already committed, not because I am all excited to see them anymore, especially with all the spoilers we get ahead of time taking away any surprise. Actually do what you said you would do and get this game in order, I should not have this much trouble buying your products, and I reiterate that I wont spend more by a large margin to get it, to buy from your store vs the ones I do business with would be at least 25% more per purchase before shipping costs and that's absurd. Especially when you factor in the cost creep of the newer waves. So before you get too deep into Clone Wars, how about you sort out the simple act of supplying the market?
  2. I think I am reading people right in talking about ship attack power and comparing it to Galactic War stuff. That's why I want them to release upgrade packs, sell me the ships as CW era and make them the best options so lots of dice and hull/shields, then release a pack of cards to upgrade them (more like downgrade them) to Galactic War, or where they would be roughly. So a Venator would go from powerhouse to a middling outer rim patrol ship. Its not so much less armed or armored than it was so much as it now just doesn't pack the punch of modern ships. This also allows older ships in the Galactic War like the victory to get an upgrade card that really boosts them. Everyone wins with this as we get more options more often at low cost and FFG gets to act like they handed us a release with little effort by comparison to adding new ship sets
  3. I am fairly excited for this game but I am also apprehensive about how it will turn out in the long run. We have had Armada for going on 5 years and there have been almost no releases for it after the first 3, and I know they promised more speed on this but the Civil War period has WAY more material to draw from for new ships. Getting 2 squadron packs will be a challenge enough, let alone a dozen or so ships per faction without getting real **** obscure. And I also think they are plain stupid if they dont design this from the start as being transferable to Armada: CW as I am calling it. They get to benefit from selling us card packs to upgrade, can move these over as either rebel or imperial ships, both in some cases and hopefully many, and its an easy way to really make a Scum faction out of almost nothing. Older ships make up the brunt of the faction, a few Rebel and Imperial ships make appearances, and then a handful of unique options come with it. But I don't really trust FFG as of late, my miniature game gets hardly any notice, my boardgames get re-released and then abandoned leaving me in the lurch for old expansions I didn't get to and holding new games that dont seem likely to be supported, and so on. We shall see I suppose
  4. I want to see a dauntless for the rebels. Bulwark would be dumb or other supers would be dumb, I agree. I just don't get it really, this should be a no brainer as the lore is full of ships to use and essentially all the design of the models are done. Render it, make a model and mould from that, and add rules that fit the role it fills/they need it to fill. Where are the dreadnoughts to give us a ship that both sides can use? Why have we not seen a space station yet with defense capabilities like a Golan, imagine the awesome matches that would give us if it wasn't just a piece of cardboard. The issue is that each wave needs so many seperate items like admiral's and multiple titles to go with the ships, yet those could be there own releases in between. Again, the game is good but in the current market they need to keep adding stuff, look GW now vs 6 years ago. They were constantly being attacked for slow releases, high prices and so on. Now no one cares and just keep eating it up and jokingly complain about how they have no money for all the releases. Yet people buy them all and their value is way up. Meanwhile FFG got bought and now I hear asmodee is in a bad spot and may get sold. They produce a lot of stuff but don't get that if you have multiple miniature games that receive sporadic support at best it isn't going to keep people's interest. Ask Spartan Games about how it worked for them. Oh wait....
  5. Decided to go buy the half price victory after writing this and look at what else they had. Core set is on sale for nearly 30% off and most everything is out of stock. This is meeplemart in Canada and basically the best game store in the country. Maybe a restock is coming but then why is the core on such a good sale? No releases for a year or whatever leads to less interest and eventually a dead game. FFG needs to get focused and support the game, all we have had in a year is a PDF to go with a ship I was told I could buy 2 months ago.
  6. Would love small decks with set card lists like their living card games have, a mix of old but sought after cards and new ones. Great way to expand the game and give me an excuse to buy something. I literally saw a half price victory class and was like, meh. We need more stuff asap as I'm bored as **** of what we have despite loving the game still. They need to get moving on new releases, each faction needs 2 or 3 ships and a small pack each year, plus a campaign or something similar. After this wait for the SSD I dread to think of how long it will take to get something of similar size again.
  7. I think scale is hinted in the title cards. Look at it in his hands then look at the Issac next to the SSD in the title card image

    Card binder

    Keep the quests in a card binder in order and facedown I would say. The stack isn't bad but if it had to be redone for any reason and it's not in the semi order it comes in.....well I would consider buying a new copy first haha
  9. yeah, this and Fallout needs dates now. I get its on the boat, but that boat has to have a date of arrival logged that they gave you. I am fine with being told "this day, maybe a week later", but come on, lots of stuff comes from china and arrives when planned.

    On The Boat

    In my experience they do mass updates, not individual ones. So while it used to say at the printers, it may have been on the boat for a week by the time we got that update. This seems like a lucrative new IP for them, and getting it out in October, say, maybe the 23rd for no specific reason, would be good for them so that xmas sales are strong.
  11. If Akbar upgrades sides, would an equivalent not just upgrade front since that is their main attack arc? May have to cost less, but not by much as front arc is easier to use, tends to have more dice on imp ships than rebs have on side arc, and would be much more devastating early game to take an extra 4-6 red shots a turn than mid to late when those couple of heavy ships make it to a position they can fire both side arcs. Just seems more useful for the imps and likely why it wont happen besides the boring notion of repeated powers on each side. asymmetrical is always better for gaming once you graduate from chess
  12. That's it, was driving me nuts haha, thanks for that. And yeah, not knowing the name to find a net pic meant only a phone pic of my tv and it was too big. Less than half a mb has to go lol
  13. Tried to add a picture but apparently we can't because FFG is not aware of phone picture file sizes haha
  14. So there is a rebel capital ship in rogue one I can't identify, but I feel the class is on the tip of my tongue. You get the best view at chapter 46, runtime 2:00:30-33, found left side and clear, and a second one almost center. It is corvette or frigate sized, but probably corvette, has a flat, disc or arrowhead shaped forward section, a long central section that appears covered in guns and gubbins, and the back may have cr90 style engines, plus wings. It is pretty cool looking, an amalgamation of a few ships and I hope to see it in the game. **** looking at it now I think partly the ship I'm seeing is the ones from starship troopers haha
