    Ahh yeah, old artwork - but I thought it looked more like a Nebulon B2 Modified Frigate - aren't Assault Friggate MKIs bigger? 
     
     
    Yeah! Would be sooo cool! Imagine game a game mode (Save the Interdictor(s)) where, the Imperial players need to keep their Interdictors 'operational' so that by a certain turn, the rest of the Imperial Fleet jumps in to 'game-over' the Rebels. 😄😄😄
    Also, just wanted to take the time to say thanks to FFG, for finally getting us some gameplay news. One good turn deserves another! 😊

    If I'm not mistaken, Konstantine triggers off of "2 friendly medium or large ships", so his effect, despite being limited to your own ships, works against every enemy ship! This format may see him rise from the garbage heap as a great support admiral.

    Could VSD-1s be good?  Normally they get avoided, but in a crowded battle it seems like they could find something to unload pain on...  Maybe even with Gunnery Team.

    Yes.
    In addition to being unique, these upgrades are range restricted, so that's a limiting factor.

    I know many of us oldfarts have been talking about the game increasing in points while squadrons stay relatively lower to keep the "fleet" aspect things more alive.
    This is great news :P  I want to see tournaments going to 600 :D

    I'm actually most looking forward to how 600 point sector fleet plays vs standard games- the decreased squad ratio/increased ship density in particular I think will spice things up all on its own

    I made bullets of the key items that stood out to me.
    2 Player Sector Fleet Games:
    Fleets can have no more than 3 Flotillas Squadrons cannot exceed 1/4th fleet points 4+ Player Sector Fleet Games:
    Sector Fleets must be of the same Faction Squadrons Cannot exceed more than 1/4th fleet points For all player size Sector Fleet Games, the number of points in a fleet is the total points per team divided by number of players. (example: 8p/1200pt per team game = 300pts per player (4p) [ptpp]) For 4 player games, individual fleets cannot exceed the 2 Flotilla limit For 6+ player games, individual fleets may only have 1 Flotilla Teams CANNOT have more than 1 copy of a card with a unique name Players are not knocked out if all ships are destroyed, and may continue to play using surviving squadrons. Friendly ships may activate your squadrons with a squadron command. "Friendly" effects, such as Tarkin, only work for the owners fleet. "Enemy" effects of commanders, such as Konstantine, only work against 1 target enemy fleet. Though, those last two points could be home ruled for thematic purposes if you want give the "individual Grand Admiral without a fleet" idea a try. Things this means: A 1200 pt team has 300 points of squadrons and 4 flotillas.
    My opinion:
    I am excited. If there is one thing wargamers like, its rules. Its like wargamers are a bunch of admin people really... and home ruling an entire massive battle set is a bit hard to get people into. BUT if the rules exist, then it makes it WAY easier to get people on board. You can slap these rules into the final CC battle as well! which is good, because I've heard that its a bit rough. I think this is the best set-up article for the SSD we'll be seeing before the SSD as well. Because as they said IN the article, they've done this with multiple ISDs under the command of a SSD. Love it. I'm excited, I love big games.

    I'm stoked. I've been house ruling essentially these exact rules for nearly 2 years now for large games. Seeing it become offical is a dream come true.

    So, ignoring the fact that everyone (myself included) is very, very happy to see a new actual article (and a rule expansion at that). How does everyone feel about the article itself? It seems like they're expanding on something a lot of the community was asking for (bigger game size options) so that's good. It's not something I was interested in (cc mass battles always suck to organize) but I am seriously happy to see something and I'm glad it'll make a lot of people in the community happy.

    Short version:
    CC final assault, but on a 6x3 table, max 1200 to a side, standard 6 rounds and objectives.
    Squads capped at 25%, flots at 3.
    Slight tweaks to setup and MoV table at 1000+
    Provisions for splitting fleet totals so teams can play vs each other.
