  1. Has anyone of the designers told that intent aloud? I interpret the card so that you do not get to advance to the "while attacking" step in the first place with Qi'ra alone. However, if there were Outer Rim Pioneer close by, then you would naturally get to shoot and without the defender getting the extra defence die (from the locked obstacle).
  2. Has this been discussed before? Has anyone done so? The biggest hindrances for using the old miniatures are the new ship tokens and dials (manoeuvres). TIE Fighter is one of the few ships whose dials were not changed. So for casual gaming the old dials are fine. Also the 2.0 Core Set comes with 6 ship tokens and the expansion pack with 5. If one is careful in list building and choosing pilots, those two purchases allow to convert up to 8 (=(6-2)+(5-1)) TIE Fighters, which is more than enough for a nice swarm! (And TIE Fighters do not even require shields :)) And if I am not mistaken one could do a similar style conversion with Protectorate Starfighters/Fang Fighters and later with Lambda-Class Shuttle. Have I forgotten something important why it would not work? Getting Conversion Kits for all three factions was not a difficult decision for me at all but maybe this observation gets someone with a bunch of 1.0 TIE Fighters back for X-Wing 2.0.
  3. I love what and how you are doing Master of the Fleet YouTube channel. I feel the same for the article, it was really refreshing to read. I know what to expect from Battle Reports but you (or now that I know, Ken) have done a great job in creating also other kind of videos. I especially liked Captain's Clinic's Rookie mistakes to avoid and Tips and tricks for new players. When a friend of mine also invested in Armada it was just natural to link them to him. Maybe you could also do a third video in that line and address the most usual rule errors? I enjoy every time you publish new content. I am relieved that you are planning to continue to the foreseeable future. Thank you for your time and effort!
  4. I fell in love with FAAs on Blue Squadron Novices with Primed Thrusters and Integrated Astromech. For fun I have filled the list with a Gold Squadron Y-Wing with Chopper, Dorsal Turret and as much 0 point upgrades as possible. Next time I am going to try Rookie Pilot with FAA and IA as the fourth ship.
  5. Where have you heard of these rumoured nerfs you assumed in the first list? Losing printed icons on the ship cards would be unprecedented in X-Wing...
  6. I really like what you are doing. Yours are the best batrep videos I have encountered (there are not too many around, are there?) and the only ones I watch regularly. Keep them coming, please!
  7. Very nicely done video. Good use of the text bar. Well played. Opportunist time
  8. After having made my way to the forum it was very nice to find out that you have made a solid report about the tournament. I can add that the rounds were 75 minutes. My squadron that ended up winning the tournament (and made me thus apparently the first official store champion in Finland ) consisted of Dagger Squadron Pilot + Advanced Sensors, Dagger Squadron Pilot + Fire-Control System and two Red Squadron Pilots, totaling 99 squadron points. The named TIE squadron was a challenge as I was last to shoot and I knew I could lose one ship in the first volley although TIE fighters were not flown in a tight formation. I faced this squadron twice, in the final and in the 4th game. The first time I lost as I lost heavily damaged RSP and DSP on the last round leaving my other DSP to face two TIE Fighters that made the shots. Modified match win to my opponent. In the finals my B-Wings prevailed and did only lose one or two shields each. Memorable moments of the tournament on my part. 1) My (unfocused) B-Wing evaded assault missiles fired by an (unfocused) Green Squadron Pilot (blank, blank, eye and hit) and saved my squadron for four hits. 2) My entire squadron fires at a focused Rookie Pilot with 14 or 15 attack dice, some focused and some unfocused... and the Rookie Pilot just loses his shields. He also shoots back and makes three hits at my B-Wing.
