    Rocmistro got a reaction from Crewgar in Fleet Archetypes   
    Where was anyone making anyone else feel bad because I (or anyone else) doesn't like a list?  As it happens I actually tremendously like both of the guys that play what I refer to as lamo-rogue lists (one is a Firespray spam, the other is YT spam).   They are great guys.  We tease one another; I tell them I think rogue-spam is lame.  They hate my MC30 spam.  Life goes on.*
     
    Thinking about this more over the last 2 days, I think my objection is to the exceptional cost-benefit ratio of YT-2400's.   They are probably a point too cheap for what they do.  Spamming them strikes me as capitalizing on that oversight.
     
    * In all seriousness, the cheese-accusation banter constitutes about 90% of conversation at my FLGS...on any given night, most of the chatter is about how this or that is cheese, and further arguments in support of or against such claims.  Most of it is just smack-talking and jealousy that such and such person's preferred army/force/fleet/deck doesn't have access to the thing they want. This applies to a spectrum of wargames, from Armada, X Wing, 40k, AoS.  Am I alone in this experience?  No one ever walks away from any of that actually feeling bad.  My understanding was that this forum is just an extension of that.  I really did not mean to make anyone feel bad, and that wasn't my intent.

    I'm not sure what the "best" ship is. I can tell you what my *favorite* ship is; and that's the MC30 Torpedo Frigate.

    So many people I work with coming out of college (RPI, U Albany) with, 40k, 60k, 80k in debt.  Go to online schools/community colleges. This is 2019, nobody cares what school that you went to unless you're a Dr./Laywer, something like that (it stinks of elitism).  All that it matters is you stuck it out and did the "College Dance". (College/education is a racket anyway.)  Don't worry about what your MOS or skills are/were in the military.  The most useful things you were taught, and that will transition to civilian life aren't your hard skills anyway, it will be all the soft things that employers at least claim to want: maturity, integrity, perseverance, communication, professionalism, improvisation, etc.

    I like the hard mode of Armada's shoot and then move mechanic.  It's the basic mechanic on which the entire game is built.  Getting a rear shot is not that difficult.

    There is. It's called:
    -deploy properly.
    -have a fleet that has a solution to late game runners.
    -use squadrons that can move and shoot.

    Rocmistro reacted to jp82729 in CC: Upgrade Outpost to Base?   
    On page 11: "Players who won a battle during the Battle Phase have the opportunity to construct a new base or outpost at the location of that battle." 
    I don't see why not. The only limitations seem to be:
    A battle took place at the outpost you want to upgrade (can't just upgrade any Rebel outpost) Rebel player won the battle Rebels wouldn't be going over the limit on number of bases they can have (depends on the number of players)

    I'd like to thank you guys for the advice. It was stuff that I knew, but just needed to hear again from someone else I guess. I'll definately look into some other stuff other than just graphics and print, start looking around and seeing what I can do education wise and stuff like that as well. Ive gotten quite a bit done today, just waiting for orders to come in so I can clear other things.
    Thanks a lot guys.

    If you're looking for a new career I recommend learning a trade. CNC or other machining, welding, HVAC, electrician, plumber. If you can operate heavy machinery (dozers and backhoes) or something like that with all the fracking and such there are lots of jobs. CDL drivers and the like are needed. There can be some crazy hours though. I was hearing about someone who'd been on seven twelves but there is money to be made if you aren't afraid of getting dirty and want to work. 
    The local large outdoor store and companion distribution center for online sales always needs people. The gun counter is always hiring ex-service members who understand handling firearms. 
    Our company (machining) has trouble finding guys who can even pass a drug test then they don't have the math or patience to get through the apprentice program. 
    Local construction and roofing companies always have more work than they can do. 
    If you're just in need of a job for a roof, food, and heat there are plenty.
    And if you have to leave some sort of military housing aren't you already moving? Does it matter if really if you're staying near the base or moving to a new city? Maybe a city close to your parents or your wife's parents?
    And this: 
    Do not go into a lot of debt for schooling. You need some but that is as much to show you can stick with something and show up on time which your presumably honorable discharge should go far in doing.

    This would be my recommendation as well. 
    Pick one thing you can do and complete and do that thing. I like to start with an easy thing (unless the easy has to be done after some other thing) like getting a load of laundry in or doing the dishes. Builds momentum and confidence.
