  1. Thank for the article, Truthiness! Getting excited to take down an SSD!
  2. I'm on team Tie Defender for the Imps and team A-Wing for the Rebels.
  3. What about... ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Ships have 2 attacks. A Ship may: 1) Make 2 attacks vs enemy ships from 2 different arcs 2) Make 2 attacks vs all enemy squadrons from 2 different arcs, or 3) Make 1 Attack vs an enemy ship and 1 attack vs all enemy squadrons from 2 different arcs OR ANY 1 ARC. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Reasons! Ships are presumably using different weapon systems vs ships and vs squadrons. Would make flying straight into the guns of enemy ships more lethal. Too easy for squads to hide in primary arc of ships. I think the lethality of squads vs ships is about right, but unique squads are too survivable vs ships. [Forgot this on initial post.] Doesn't really fix Pryce is Rite. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Alternatively, increase point cost of named squads by 10% and lower cost of generic squads by 10%. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Or... Do nothing?
  4. You're correct! My apologies to the learned Paleobotanist from Speilburg U.
  5. Well, the lady paleontologist from Jurassic Park wrecked most of the FO Star Destroyers. Maybe they had to get the old ones out of storage.
  6. I think this is an awesome announcement. Including Clone Wars has the potential to bring in new players and expand the base. Would love more OT/Legends stuff but deeper and deeper cuts from the distant past isn't going to bring the interest and participation like adding "best of" the Clone Wars. So I support this decision. Thank you, FFG!
  7. Dual-faction Dreadnaught! Dual-faction Scum mercenaries! Such as a C-ROC flotilla. A Clone Wars Starter Set! Or all of these things!
  8. Clone Wars. Way more content, way more variety, better development. It's an easy call. And I am NOT a prequels person. I'm an OT old guy. But give me Clone Wars.
  9. I think this is an interesting guess, especially considering the number of squads and the two revealed so far. I wonder if we may get some Clone Wars characters such as Jango Fett, Aurra Sing, or Embo for the Imperial side. Its also possible they will be unique non-character squadrons (Like Gold or Saber) such as Trandoshan Slavers (YV-666) and Contracted Mercenaries (Jumpmaster) with the mention of irregular squadrons. On the Rebel side Kyle Kataran (HWK-290) or Outer Rim Smuggler. Or FFG could just pull pilots out of the X-Wing list. I don't really care! Just bring on some new stuff!
  10. Great thread. I’m pumped for the new campaign, objectives, mechanics, and cards! Keep up the good work.
  11. I thought of that immediately after reading the card. Glad I’m not alone!
  12. Whatever the reason, I'm happy for the update!
  13. I would say that we've entered the realm of poor customer service. I would be more understanding if a delay was issued versus complete silence. It's not that hard and its doesn't even need to reveal any problem. For instance: "Hey Armada Admirals! In order to deliver the best experience, we are continuing to evaluate the SSD impact on the game prior to release. The process sometimes takes longer than anticipated but we're committed to providing a quality play experience every time. So stay on target and enjoy the current game while we finalize our next and biggest product. Sincerely, SOMEBODY, ANYBODY AT FFG."
  14. Has FFG released an update to the expected arrival of the SSD expansion? Is the delay due to the Trump Tariffs? Article reads to expect in "early" 1st Quarter 2019, but the Upcoming page still has it listed as "In Development". Anyway, I'm having a great time with the game and my local community is actually stronger than the same time last year, but it would nice to have some feedback from FFG.
  15. What are some of the best Officer Vader (1) combinations? Officers whose uses occur only at the beginning of the game and are low cost are good considerations. - Captain Needa (2) - Admiral Ozzel (2) - Officer version - Admiral Titus (2) - Minister Tua (2) - Unless the defensive slot lost if she is discarded? - Governor Pryce (7) - If used after her turn. There is a good argument for general utility due to Vader's low cost and the potential for a re-roll of any number of dice (the best kind of re-roll) at 1) a critical moment, 2) if you have a poor match-up (you brought Kalus and your opponent has an all-ship list), or 3) the final turn of the game On the other had, what are POOR combinations? I would consider officers who are "discard" to use not ideal since they create an either/or situation. - Skilled First Officer (1) - Chart Officer (2) - Hondo Onaka (2) What do you think? Edit: Forgot to include new Ozzel card.
  16. LOL of course I’ve seen a droid control ship. I thought the Lucrehulk was the name of a specific ship, but it’s apparently the CLASS. Soooo I’m obviously an OT era person. But I agree with your analysis. Not sure I’d drop $100+ for a ship I don’t know and some upgrade cards.
  17. I haven’t been able to keep up with the new canon books and comics. Is there a huge rebel ship in there? (Is that where the Lucrehulk comes from?) And with Lucasfilm creating new canon all the time now, there is no reason a ship can’t be inserted now. With the final Clone Wars season rotating around an epic battle on Mandalore, we could see something there that would exist close to the Galactic Civil War Finally, I see no reason why FFG couldn’t insert some huge MonCal ship that was “in development” during the events of ROTJ. Point is, there are many options. It just needs to be fun.
  18. I could see this happening. It would explain the sudden silence around Armada. If Disney/Lucasfilm decided to make an about face and revive the Clone Wars and asked FFG to work on product to correspond with this shift in focus, I could see why a sudden silence started about a year ago. I guess we'll have to (continue) to wait and see.
  19. I'm attending as well beginning on Friday. Local to SD but its my first Con in a decade. FFG is demoing X-Wing 2.0 and Destiny as far as I know.
