    GrandAdmiralCrunch reacted to Frostweasel in Will there be a 2.0 Armada?   
    X-wing needed a 2.0 desperately it was hugely successful and while the core mechanics of the game were great the success lead to lots of bolted on mechanics and balance was a real issue. Armada doesn't seem to have the same problems, for example almost every ship has a workable build that can have a place in the competitive scene. X-wing had many ships that never saw the table. Not to mention it was all about upgrades and less about flying card shenanigans allowed certain ships to sit at range one in the arcs of multiple ships and come away almost unscathed. In my experience in armada bad ship placement almost always hurts.

    Probably not, but a distant maybe.
    More likely then a 2.0 IMO is that they release more factions soonish

    This has been a WIP since the dawn of Armada. There was an update last year. Check it out if you are interested.

    Well, Destiny is still a thing!  Remember Destiny?  I played it once and decided staying away from CCG’s was still the right choice.

    everyone is focusing on games continuity but there are other factors that you have to consider,
    do you like Star Wars?
    do you like space battles?
    do you like table top games?
    if your answer is yes, then go for it, it is a fun game with really cool looking miniatures and it will last long as you take good care of your stuff,
    one thing that you should be careful is the budget, that is the real issue that you should be mindful of

    I mean, this is pretty much me, only instead of going full bore back into 40k I just went into kill team and got bored with it pretty quick. Love 40k's IP, rules are still a bit iffy(re-rollable 1's kill me on the inside)

    Now i really just don't have any tabletops that I'm that interested in which is disappointing but ultimately I'm just going to remain indifferent. I don't think armada is dead, but I am absolutely concerned it's on life support
     
    That level of customer service has, effectively, been the standard for FFG as long as I've known the company. Not defending them, they're just consistently ******
     
    Eh, every edition has had issues but I think 4th and 6th were decent. I played necrons though so 5th pretty much kneecapped me so that's why i don't love everyones favorite (5th)
     
    I don't care what Revan's gender was but I've argued forever that instead of star killer base it should have been a star forge that was in force awakens (and they SHOULD NOT have killed it, but disabling it would have been fine, at least long enough to require repairs and slow production). It would have been PERFECT as the capital ship in TLJ instead of their weird flying space wing.

    I don’t think we need a 2.0.
    if we need anything it’s more regular new releases & better communication from FFG. 
    You can implement clone wars factions (which I wouldn’t mind) without the need for all the fuss of an official 2.0.
    This would allow cross faction ships, such as the Acclamator (which I also favour)

    I would like a version 1.1 refresher pack for about £15 or $20.
    New rulebook containing all the updates and newer rules like Contain, Raid, Flotillas, Tournament regulations, 400 point MOV chart etc. Reprinted FAQed cards like TRC, Most Wanted, Rhymer, Avenger, Rieekan etc. 1 of each unique and two of each other card. Point reductions on some of the poor upgrade cards like QLTs, Sensor Teams, Devastator, Redemption, Tagge. Again 1 of each unique and two of each other card. 2 new officers and 2 new ship titles for each faction to give veterans a little present and another reason to buy this product. A second interdictor title for example.

    I think that hits the nail on the head. Even the change I consider to be the least intrusive, that would help to lift the game a lot, and that I have never dreamed of that people could dislike it, is highly controversial: an app. Every player has his most darling change to the rules, and every player dislikes most of the most darling changes of the other players.
    The majority of the community will only accept changes, if it feels the game is broken. But it is not. It is in the best state since its birth. I don't want to say that the community is content. But the annoyance is about FFG, not the state of the game. Hence, what we really want is not Armada 2.0, but FFG 2.0 🤣
    All that said, if I have read most of the recent threads, videos, and blog entries about Armada 2.0 correctly, the authors do not say that they want Armada 2.0, but are in nature highly speculative about how it could be done.
