  1. I missed it as well, and would likely have gone if I was able, any idea when the next one might be?
  2. Interdictor definitely. He can set the board in his favor, ignore defense tokens (HIE) and has incredible defense (Targeting Scrambler + Brunson). I'd take a 117 'dictor vs any 150 points.
  3. Best Tanks in the game!! Getting a 2nd is always worth it, they're best in pairs :D. But I don't think I would ever use 4 at a time....even at that price
  4. Ive read this as well but a few things... In our on screen encounters (which have to be the truest canon) a Star Destroyer trashes corvettes and disables an MC75 in about a minute? Likewise in RotS over coruscant hundreds of ships are fighting and some ships die very quick while others pound away so you could say 5-20 minutes max to beat down a Venator.
  5. So I actually run a similar list to this and it’s done very well for me. I’m 3-0 in a tournament and 2-0 in casual games with it. Dual Interdictors can be quite tanky, and with HIE’s can be surprisingly deadly. https://armada.ryankingston.com/fleet/15005/ (Linked) You can dual arc with Interdictors quite easily, and with a Firepower command and HIE’s they are likely to inflict 6-8 dmg per turn. (3 Blue, 1 Red///4 Blue, 1 Red) get a crit and it’s stripping 3 shields on top of everything. Dual Interdictors actually excel at killing large ships because they can strip away the shields so effectively at long range, large ships lose (practical) use of their 2 redirects and so only have (1 useful) defense token left. And youre rolling Blues... On top of that, two interdictors can survive alot. With an engineering value of 5, they can recover. With Brunson you can cancel out damage pretty much every turn (and the Title helps with her). I would strongly suggest using Targeting Scramblers. Its a ridiculously powerful upgrade. ”While a friendly ship at distance 1-3 is defending is defending at close range, during the Spend Defense Tokens step, you may exhaust this card to force the attacker to reroll up to 4 dice of your choice” So it works for the ship its on, and any ship near it getting attacked at close range. When you have one on each interdictor you can essentially use it 3 times per turn (if you only use Brunson once) It also works against Squadrons... it’s just really good. It also is immune to Defense Token manipulation as well (Brunson too!) which is incredibly useful against Avenger and Intel Officer. And you can use it to support your Demolisher if he gets caugt close to an ISD. 4 dice rerolls is brutal. i’ve kept an 8 point bid but you dont always want first with an Interdictor...but its certainly nice to choose lol. Im not able to play very frequently and am itching to take this to a Regional coming up (hopefully) and can see how it does against top competition, but i think the much maligned Interdictor can be a truly powerful and strong ship. Frankly i would take a 120 point Dictor over a 140 point ISD (without squadrons involved) any day of the week. Glad to see someone else who likes these ships.
  6. https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/news/2018/11/9/enter-the-clone-wars/ Article dropped for X-wing, and while i enjoy X-wing - Armada is my true love so i didnt care much. Then i saw the picture in the scrawl and noticed some Seperatist ships fighting a Venator and thought that perhaps this is a sign. Obviously we've been wondering for years about this but now 1 product line is moving in that direction. Its interesting
  7. That looks like itd be an awesome screensaver
  8. So as someone who uses these regularly let me say - For the cost, and on the right ship these are amazing upgrades. Not always needed, but they are insanely cheap. With the proliferation of cards that now use “Exhaust” (TRC, Avenger, Brunson, etc.) this card has come into its own. Previously it had very few cards it could target but now many popular options can be shut down. The cost is negligible and you may not always need it, but this isnt like not needing H9s or something - if you dont need it its not a big deal. The right ship absolutely has to be a Raider 2 or CR90B, with heavy preference on the Raider. You position your opener (the cr90) the turn previously so you can light up their upgrade on first shot. You need to have a heavy hitter to make use of the exhaust, and this upgrade is obviously useless on big ships for that reason. I personally use it on a Raider II with gunnery teams, MS-1’s, and DCaps. I can set the board, then get two ultra long range shots to knock out the opposing (MC75/80, Star Destroyer) and follow up with my own destroyer. Its a true joy to knock out Avenger before he can activate. The simple reality is that this upgrade is only practical on small ships, and for its cost and with the addition of new Exhaust cards it can be pretty useful. For your upgrade - i’d say it would certainly improve the Ion Cannons - to the point where large ships enjoyed taking them - but it would need a substantial uptick in cost (5 points maybe) cause it completely negates one of The Best defensive upgrades (a 7? 8? Point card? {i dont reall use it so i dont remember}) just straight cancellation. That would cost Far more than 2 points.
  9. Don’t Stress too much. He works like Intel Officer. You use your token and he discards it afterwards. And he has to declare which token he discards before any ships activate.
  10. C’mon stop with all this chil’dishness. Pitch forks are complete overkill for the plates of humble pie we should all be eating in andishipation of FFG serving us.
  11. I would have Loved to make it, but thats the weekend of the my wife and I’s trip to California, so i wont be able to make it
  12. Hey guys, i am just wondering if there are any organized tournaments happening near Denver (within an hour or so) in the next month or two? I have been insanely busy but my wife now owes me a day off (2 kids) to play Armada so id love to find somewhere nearby where i could get 3 or 4 games in at once. If anyone knows of something near - post it here! Thanks guys!
  13. I went in expecting it to be “meh” and like alot of you i was just smiling nonstop through it. I loved alot of it and the parts i didnt enjoy weren’t big or bothersome by any means. Definitely top 5 of star wars movies for me, but not top 3 i just wanted to mention some awesome “lore-reference/nod” as no one else mentioned it. I personally loved the original Han origin books and i was excited to see these. In the “Legends” story - Han falls in love with a girl named Bria, and she joins the Red Hand (rebel group) and ultimately leaves him to follow their cause. In the now “Canon” story - Han falls in love with a girl named Qira and she joins the Crimson Dawn and leaves him i guess to follow their cause. (Though i was gunna say cause she has few morals and saw an opportunity to be an incredibly powerful person - which frankly is plenty reason to me) i love it
  14. Well ****. While we may not have gotten an announcement;our faith lives on...and Next Week shall come! We must beware the whispers of the great deceiver’s followers and call them out anytime we see them (AdmiralNelson). Do not give up hope! We shall indeed see the next “Big Thing”....
