    Corellian Corvette got a reaction from Captain_Nemo in Large Ships We Want to See in Armada   
    If your bringing a death star, then I will take General Rieekan and mess you up! XD
    Liaison:"Sir's! The death star has fired on one of our cruisers! It's completely destroyed! :O"
    Akabar: "Our shields can't repel firepower of that magnitude!"
    Rieekan: "Order that ship to broadside the nearest unactivated Star Destroyer! Then when it moves, have it ram them in their front arc! That will obstruct their attacks, and they will be forced to take further damage when it moves and rams them. Plus dropping them to speed 0 will negate their defensive tokens, leaving them helpless!"
    Liaison: "... but sir! That's suicide!"
    Rieekan: "Damnit man, do you think I don't know that! They knew what they were signed up for, they knew the risks of this mission! They will be remembered as martyrs, as patriots, as the bravest goddamn men and women that ever lived! Now, give the Order leiutenent."
    Liaison: "... Sir yes Sir!"
    Akabar: "... waitaminute"
    Meanwhile!
    Redshirt Imperial Officer: "The Deathstar is firing! Hit! We have killed one of the rebel ships my lord!"
    Vader: "Very good. Now, order th-"
    Redshirt Imperial Officer: "My lord! That Rebel Cruiser is firing on us! Brace for impacts!"
    Vader: "Wat?"
    RsIO: "Shields failing! Hull damage on decks 12-14! They are coming about! Sensors detect multiple escape pods launched. Their... Their going to RAM us!"
    Vader: "Wat!?!"
    RsIO: "BRACE! Major damage reported on the bow, with the top decks venting atmosphere! They are blocking our firing solution at the rest of the rebel fleet, and we are going to hit them again! Brace for impact! Minor damage reported to overall hull integrity but the bow is gone my lord!"
    Vader: "WAT"
    RsIO: "We are stopped in space sir, it will be another 3 rounds till we can get moving again my lord. Also, the Rebel Cruiser is destroyed!"
    Vader: *face palm*
    Edit: (for more lolz)
    Meanwhile-Meanwhile:
    Akabar: "ah, so you just jiggle the Ethernet cord in the modem to spike their ping? Fascinating!"
    Rieekan: "yup, and they are only destroyed once the server catches up!"
    (He's a dirty cheater, that rebel scum)

    Corellian Corvette got a reaction from xulfus in Ordnance Tubes?!?! Ordnance Tubes. What munitions work?   
    Well, 
    My friend just used his raider with some new proxy cards.

     
    With some of these on the front:
     

    (other upgrades as well, but they don't matter as much)
     
    On the second turn he opened the throttle.
    I did not realize how much ground a raider could travel with a 1 forward, then a 4 forward, then another 1 white maneuver.  I was moving in my cr90 about 20 degrees parallel to my board edge, and we had only barely creeped into range 5 on turn one. (only the veeeeeeery tip of forward left corner base could touch his, and it was past the secondary arcs twin single turbolasers.  Still got a 1st turn shot off with the main cannon, (crit hit eye eye eye).  No target lock because I moved first, then he moved just into range and snagged target locks.
     
     
    2nd turn, I move, grab target locks, raise bow deflector shields to full (reinforce), and do some energy support shenanigans.  X wings were forming a defensive screen, TIE's screaming in, everyone was prepping for the joust.
     
    But apparently the raider had afterburners or something crazy, barreling forward 6, screaming past his gunline, crumpling one of his own TIE's and a Z-95, pushing him from the mid band of range 5 all the way down to range 2.
    Me: "okay, all I have to do is cripple the fore, I can stop this-"
    Friend: "Oh, Jonus used swarm tactics on the Raider."
    Me: "... WAIT WHAT"
    Friend: "Okay, primaries firing first then the two cluster missiles"
    Me: "Ahahaha! You only have one target lock on the CR90!"
    Friend: "Then I gotta kill one of your tiny ships."
     
     
    Jonus lets loose a salvo of concussion missiles, bracketing Biggs (4 hits, 2 damage) but he jukes the worst of it.
     
    (the raiders rear cannon would kill Biggs in-between missile shots)
     
    Meanwhile that raider captain flushes all of his bow missile tubes and heavy laser cannon fire lances into the side of the CR90.  A stream of small, speeding, dart-like cluster missiles, spray lineally out of the nose, travelling parallel to the flashes of laser fire, orange on green, streaking in and exploding.  Fire blossomed around the corvette, obscuring it in flashes of light and smoke.
     
    The corvette's armor is blasted apart, debris flying everywhere, atmosphere venting, flames and coolant erupting from the stricken hull.  The momentum of the raider carries it crashing into the CR90, the glancing blow tearing off the engines of the corvette and overloading the reactor, killing power to the vessel.  The fore careens forwards from the collision, listing and burning, nearly sheared off from the aft.
    The rebels are routed as the raider turns its attention to the X-wings, killing some and driving the rest off despite their best efforts with a well timed proton salvo.  The battle was lost, the Corvette was lost, and with that the rebels hope was lost in this tiny corner of the galaxy.
     
     
     
    But I can assure you that I am never letting him get another alpha strike like that in ever again. :l

    Episode 7 did better Calamari
    Rogue One did better Star Wars
    So much packed into one 5 hour movie! And it was only like 130 minutes long!
    I was fine with most of the charature development.
    I had finals going into this so I knew basically nothing about this movie besides the official trailers and same for episode 7.
    Episode 7 I was like "yes it didn't suck! Disney didn't **** up!".
    Rogue I was like "This movie is the best movie of 2016."

    I for one after seeing that movie thought episode 7 pales to this movie. I had about 2 gripes, that's it. I have about 10k things I LOVED about this movie.

    Rogue one is bringing out feelings for Star Wars that I haven't had since I was a little kid in the theatre watching ANH (then just called Star Wars) in '77. I'm in the middle of an OT marathon until time to go watch it again tonight.

    Without looking it up, I believe Donnie Yen was Chirrut Imwe, his buddy I don't remember. Not sure if all of their names are that important to remember for character development as long as you recognize them on screen when they mention their names. I for example didn't remember every single name after watching the whole season of Band of Brothers either.

    Interesting to see the positive reviews, even if they need to be parsed with caveats that people enjoyed episode 7 (**** that was a bad movie, campy, poor scripting, no real development), may have to watch this 4th potential installment to start wars.

    I think Rogue One edges out RotJ for my Second favourite which is closely behind ESB. TFA can't even hold a candle to Rogue. Vader was kind of weird for me though, not as tall, costume looked cheap and the original actor who played him on screen did a better job I think.

    I actually enjoyed TFA, though it took me a few days to settle on that conclusion (mostly because of thatonedeathscene). I didn't have that sense after Rogue One, as I knew I liked it as soon as it finished. So it has that going for it.
     
    Pantheon-wise, the only film I really dislike was Episode II (just too grating for me). Then Episode I, III, and VI (heresy, I know), all of which I liked very much, despite some distracting elements. My top-shelf favorites in some order are New Hope, ESB, TFA, and Rogue One. And I lean heavily towards Rogue One except...

    Admittedly, I didn't look super close during the movie, but those look like pretty solid mountings for 4 additional turbolasers.

    It was slightly different but it was pretty much the same. The Rogue One version had what it looked like two scape pods on the sides (where the attachment hatch should be) which can be perfectly an in-universe attachment for combat.
    The Rogue One version also had an extra engine.
    This is a quick mockup of the differences:

    Note that the star destroyer was completly disabled from the Y wings ion bombing and stuff.
    Kinda like what 2 shots from that ion cannon in episode 5 did but more permanent damage.
