  1. You’re right - I misread the text.
  2. I don’t think this is legal. Wulff triggers when you *spend* a token, but fleet commands *discard* a token. You cannot use Wulff to recover tokens used for fleet commands.
  3. That's just it, though - if all you need to do to beat two is "have a plan" (i.e. "git gud"), then I don't see what all the fuss was about in the first place. There have been no structural changes to the game since two-ship was ascendant; everyone had the same tools back then that they had at GenCon. All of the wailing and gnashing of teeth was due to players not being willing to *adapt* to something new.
  4. Looking at the data, it seems like two-ship, as a fleet archetype, has been extremely overrated. 9 of the 45 competitors flew two-ship, yet only 1 of them made it into the top 25%.
  5. Exactly. Like, chess hasn't had any new releases in literally CENTURIES, and it's freaking impossible to find anyone to play the game with. Why bother? We'll never get any cool new pieces. I mean, the en passant errata was pretty neat, but that's not enough to hold me over for 500 years. Armada chess is dead.
  6. After reading its stat block... so am I!
  7. You will note that OP's original comment was *itself* an act of mockery, and dripping with derisive sarcasm. So I am sure you will shortly be adding a comment explaining how the OP was at fault for his "posture."
  8. How many armada players does it take to screw in a lightbulb? Just one, but afterwards he'll complain that the outcome is always the same.
  9. Same general form? Wasn't one running an MC80?
  10. The difference is I'm not implicitly calling for changes to the game. There have been, at this point, *2* rounds of Rieekan / Squadron nerfs (more if you count "soft-nerfs" like the Wave 7 anti-squadron upgrades). Some of the changes I liked, and others I didn't. In general, I feel that the response has been a bit heavy-handed, and I am not eager to see *more* happen. Continued bellyaching about Rieekan/squadrons/whatever may actually *change the game I play*, so yes, it *does* effect the hobby I participate in. It would be one thing if OP's lament was "I went to a regionals post-faq and I *still* kept getting crushed by Rieekan aceholes." I can sympathize with getting bored with sameness in a local meta, especially if it interferes with one's ability to progress on the competitive scene. But this was just whining about seeing the same matchups at a tournament that OP didn't even attend, with the implied call for *more* changes.
  11. This is no longer legal per the nerf, right? 2 flots max, no lifeboats? How have your post-faq matches been?
  12. Did you play in the finals? No? So it actually... didn't have any effect on how you participate in the hobby at all? You're just upset about how *other completely different people* played a game that you had no involvement in? Yeah ok.
