    I think I understand what you mean now, and until we get precise TO ruling during worlds, I'll refrain from using the card. If it is like you say, it is honestly a very bad upgrade and goes in the dump pile of bad upgrades FFG came up with for Armada.
    I'd like to point out that you're being very rude, and discussing this has been quite the unpleasant experience. Good day sir.

    Sybreed reacted to IronNerd in First game with the SSD   
    You've perfectly voiced my concerns. Add on the whole "unique cards coming behind a $200 paywall" thing, and you've got why I'm so opposed to the SSD and other huge ships. I would be lying if I said I wasn't seriously concerned about the state of Armada over the next year.
    For what it's worth, I started my gaming hobby as a 40k player back in high school. Came in just at the tail end of 3rd edition, played through 4th and 5th. Flyers was the beginning of the end for that game. For so long, it was sci-fi World War I. Troops battling it out with a few tanks on the board. Then came the planes... I haven't truly enjoyed a game of 40k since then.

    I mean, event exclusive alt-arts are already  a thing...
     
    And I mean, the main difference between X-Wing and Armada is, seemingly, X-Wing's business model is a "multi-buy" for most of its packs...  You get two or three of a ship much more frequently than you do in Armada...  Not to say we don't, but still...  Something like a Vulture droid is good for this, as you're probably intending on getting three or more anyway, so its not a huge deal...
    It can be a little counter-intuitive for Armada to dedicate production resources to something that's going to be a one off purchase for people, that's not going to be general release - either on retooling time and charges, or on the risk that it doesn't sell, when they could just produce more of the baseline.
     
    I personally loathe event exclusives.  I grew up in Australia, and for almost 30 years there, I envied the ability of people to "Go to GenCon, get Swag" without a $4000k investment in Plane Ticket alone.  it was always infuriating.
     
    I'm disappointed in the Alt-Art distribution of Armada as it was.  I was enthused by the Idea of the "Worlds' stream party" that OP had originally planned (the idea where the Worlds Exclusive Alt-Art would be distributed in limited number (2) to stores so they could run something simultanious to worlds to celebrate), because that helped distribute the Alt Art to those who for whatever reason, cannot travel....   And sometimes, that reason isn't Economical.  For some (including me), its also Security and Political based.
     
    I begrudingly accept the situation we have, beacause THANKFULLY, unlike a whole bunch of other companies, FFG's alt Arts and Exclusives are functionally identical to general availability...   Keep THAT up, and I'll complain a whole lot less...  There's absolutely NOTHING worse than Prizes or Exclusives being functionally different, better or modified than general availability...

    Sybreed got a reaction from Mad Cat in Are ship models required for Squadrons in tournament play?   
    I once played against a guy who forgot his shuttles, so he used a Y-Wing proxie instead...
     
    And I was fielding Y-Wings as well... even with the small token you put at the base of the squad to differentiate it, it created a lot of confusion, and caused me to never attack it. I didn't lose because of that alone, but it sure as **** wasn't helping.

    but, their new system is flexible enough so they can correct by buffing or nerfing a ship through the App. Armada has always needed that, like most games do. The imbalances are not as bad as in X-Wing, but we've received a lot of "bandage" balancing which is honestly not the best design ever.
