  1. I am very much looking for any Mon Mothma Promo cards, as it is literally the only promo card I do not have in my collection. I have duplicates of almost any other card (including promos), ship, and component, and even have a set of Space Rocks obstacles from before they got shut down (just search for images) which I am willing to trade for this card.
  2. That is my hope as well. There was a post on Twitter not too long ago (a week or two?) from FFG about how there was a MASSIVE shipment of new things already on it's way to them, and this is the first status update since the first of December for the game. While this doesn't mean that updating the status was for sure delayed, I see it as being at least a strong possibility .
  3. At last! As of my check first thing this morning, Star Wars Rebellion has joined the massive number of things that are now on their way to market!
  4. But how many posts do they read? I would say my odds would be pretty decent, but if they only gently peruse the forum they're likely closer to 3,720 to 1...
  5. Has anyone else noticed a serious dearth of new information on wave 2? Maybe I've just missed it, but I'm not aware that any new info has been posted since the initial announcement. Have we gotten any other info anywhere else besides the usual spoiler pictures? If you are from FFG reading this, another article would be fantastic
  6. As much as I hate to say it, we don't even know if wave 2 is at the printer yet. Notorious as the upcoming page is, it still lists wave 2 as in development.
  7. To further confuse issues, I got the following response to an email on the matter: "Any adjustments to the tournament structure will we reflected in the latest tournament release. If wave 2 is in stores with enough time, it will be legal. But I do not know the production schedule for the exact release date." I appreciate the prompt and friendly response, but that seems rather... vague... What constitutes "enough time"? I'm not even sure if he was referring to Worlds or just tournaments in general.
  8. Amen to the above, and to add my two bits it wouldn't allow FFG to keep a fair and competitive tournament scene if there were collectors ships you could only have by getting into the game three years ago sort of scenarios. Thankfully pay to win is not their style.
  9. I hear you there, but I think a large part of that is having a few people who really put themselves out there for a game and a community focused on keeping things awesome. The SLC area has a freaking FANTASTIC group of players right now, some of whom we see often and some not so often, but all very friendly. I'd say we have about 5 players into the game enough to set up their own events with stores, 5 stores we like who have set up events with us, 3 of whom the owner is totally on-board, and 3 other stores that are making some token effort but who we don't all feel the need to support. Tournaments may not be everything but active players in stores sure do draw in new players when your active group is friendly and open about it.
  10. Qualifications are either winning regionals or previous Worlds or buying a ticket on a first come first served basis. I think it depends more on interest level. I've got two guys here locally who want to go and we've got costs down to $300 per person with food, transportation, hotel, and $60 entry included by turning it into a good'ole college style road trip from Salt Lake City to FFG Headquarters, Minnesota.
  11. So I think Armada has "made it" past tense at this point. Both X-wing and Armada sold out for Worlds in less than 2 hours, and personally I'd love to know which one sold out first and how quickly.
  12. Yeah, I haven't taken that card since I figured out how the card actually worked (and that your opponent is still going to get free use of defence tokens for that shot). I normally play Imperials also and find Intel officer to be much more punishing.
  13. I like it! Are you certain you should give away the composition of the Rebel fleet in that bottom picture though? After all any true Imperial knows it's not half that size anymore ;P
  14. that's wierd. . . I did put the link into it. . . Huh... Yeah I've got nothing when I try to click on it.
  15. If you are going to make your sig advertise for the site you should put a link in it. The site itself is much more readable, but that blue is just too dark on that background, even though I do like the color itself...
  16. Understandably, I took a lunch at work to get tickets the moment they were available, but I didn't expect 4 events to be sold out within the first 2 hours! I don't even know when Armada closed but I know it was one of the first two to do so. I think the game is here to stay
  17. Font is really hard ot read with the backgound image in places. Can't wait to see this and HNN going at it though! XD
  18. They will be at FFG headquarters in Roseville Minnesota.
  19. Title says it all I think. I jumped on at 12:00PM CST sharp and got my ticket and registered for Armada. This is actually my first time getting involved at anything more than a local level for this sort of competition so I'm rather excited. Anyone else here planning on attending FFG Worlds for Armada this year? Edit: And Worlds are sold out in less than two hours without so much as a "hey these tickets are on sale now". Good heck that was popular, maybe they'll increase the venue size due to overwhelming response
  20. Still seems fairly niche to me.... One of the cool things I've found (although I may be wrong on this) is that if the card is used and so actually discarded it doesn't count as part of the point total you opponent receives for destroying the ship.
  21. eBay would be my suggestion also. They seem to have a lot of components for sale individually. Personally I am still waiting for a site to go up that buys and sells individual cards and components.
  22. Where did you preorder from?
  23. Depends on the build. I've been running pretty all or nothing builds but with a fairly low cost, and I've found having initiative to be the single most important factor in whether I win or not. This is terrible of me to admit since I've been such a fan of the objective system, but most of my builds actually ignore objectives and usually even fighters and aim to table my opponent as quickly as possible, usually round 4.
  24. Nice. Anyway having played in and organized a few tournaments now yes I'd say that will be typical. My suggestion is create your own casual play at an LFGS. It would help to have a contact with any local group first, but just let it be know that you'll be at a certain place at a certain time to play, go drop by, and see what happens. That's worked all but once for me thus far since launch.
  25. Sounds like a death order In a stern Imperial voice: You signed your own death order the moment you joined the Rebellion. I ought to be Force choked..... My sister keeps on killing my 2 VSD while my GSD and fighter screens does better than both VSD I ought to be force chocked... Well this is a first, it would appear we have a volunteer!
