    I bet there is 1-2 lbs of packaging material with the SSD.

    well if 2 SSD's becomes meta in the 1200 point level then its money well spent

    I think it's 22+ hull and high engineering is the special rule that allows it to "ignore" overlapping objects

    I think so, too! We house ruled that every base counted for itself. So if you overlap a squadron with the rear base you have to redeploy it touching the rear base, not the front base. Then overlapping isn't much of weird worm-hole-space-journey issue.
    For deployment we also decided that only the rear base counted to be in deployment zone and for measuring distance when deploying squadrons.
    I would be glad if huge ships would also ignore the effects of overlapping objects. That would give some freedom for movement and wouldn't award sitting at the station.

    Seeing I have actually lost cards before, because I'm always taking my stuff places....yeah, I'm keeping my spares. Don't be hating, now! 😆
    As far as indulgent and excessive....lol. I spent 21 years in the military risking my life to earn my pension....so I'll spend it how I wish, thank you! 😁

    Here's my take on the SSD, for better or worse.
    price: I'm retired military with disposable income, so don't care, albeit I will admit that this IS going to be an issue for most folks.
    fat Han: I don't think this will necessarily be an issue. I think with my usual tourney list I can take one down, but I'll admit it will require very good flying. With how expensive it is both in dollars and points, I don't think it's going to be a huge presence at tourneys.
    I think, given the Sector Fleet rules, that it will have more play in those rules, as in scenarios or one off large battles as opposed to regular tourney play. 
    Finally....it's an SSD. I'm getting one, even if all it does is sit on a shelf looking awesome. 😄

    I dont feel like the SSD will be super dominant. I think it will have a good list or two but for how big it is I just dont see it being meta nominating, and even if it becomes that way I think this ship will be an SSD killer.
    MC30c Torpedo Frigate (63)
    • Intel Officer (7)
    • Ordnance Experts (4)
    • Rapid Reload (8)
    • H9 Turbolasers (8)
    • Admonition (8)
    = 98 Points
    They can take Tua and ECMs to get around this but with how large your base is I'll just put B-wings in front of you and that will be a nightmare as well. 
    The SSD is so big its just going to be so easy to double arch and will almost always be overlapping squadrons/obsticals. I could be wrong, but I just don't see it being super dominant, as if it ever does I feel the meta will just shift and adapit to take it out.

    It depends how much work you want to invest. For a enjoyable video you need a camera man and someone who edits the video to get rid of the boring parts. Master of the Fleet does that extremly well. But its understandable if you do it with less cineastic ambition!
    Movement is key! Just try it out the next time you play the SSD. It does some extremly surprising moves. (But you have to discuss what should happen if you overlap squadrons. It's weird if you displace them farer away as a rangeruler's length!)
    The list I played twice and enjoyed a lot. Piett and Yularen let me do double Command Dials nearly every round:
    Admiral Piett SSD (400/400)

    Star Dreadnought Command Prototype (220) [295]
    [Flagship] Admiral Piett (22)
    Wulff Yularen (7)
    Admiral Chiraneau (10)
    Damage Control Officer (5)
    Gunnery Team (7)
    Expanded Hangar (5)
    Leading Shots (4)
    XI 7 Turbolasers (6)
    All Fighters, Follow Me! (5)
    Squadrons [105]
    Mauler Mithel (15)

    The video consists of 3 parts. Actual gameplay is part 1 and 3 viewed from another angle. The middle section seems to be list building (didn't watch). You only would have to watch about 1 1/2 hours to follow the game. But sound and still camera are hard to enjoy.
    Inspite of Jerjerrod at the SSD went six straight speed 1 moves. That's a pitty, because it leaves out maneuvering, what is a real fun part and strength of the SSD in my experience. For that gameplay is very static and reduced to lot of dice rolling, what's not very interesting to watch.
    The SSD managed to kill the MC75 and the Flotilla. It survived the attacks quite close, it seems. What we may learn is that it's a high-risk-high-reward strategy to try to kill an enemy SSD. If you succeed you will get a 10-1 but if you don't you risk a 3-8 or worse. So no big surprises here, I would say.

    This pretty much sums up my general feelings toward Armada lately:

    3 Hours and 15 Minutes of hot Armada Action, but nearly 2 Hours and 45 minutes of that are spent fiddlin' with squadrons.

    we played 2 games today with the SSD. I built a Proxy a few weeks ago and its time to put it to the test 

    the first game was with the  STAR DREADNOUGHT COMMAND PROTOTYPE then we had a go STAR DREADNOUGHT ASSAULT PROTOTYPE
