    WhatsArmadaWithYou reacted to Reavern in Should Mon Mothma's Commander ability be updated for Extreme Range?   
    During my latest match of Armada, my opponent made an interesting point about Mon Mothma's Commander ability and how it relates to the Onager's ability to fire at Extreme Range.
    FFG updated the rules in Wave 8 so that an Evade token can cancel 2 dice at extreme range instead of 1, and it stacks with the MC30 Foresight ship title's ability, so its Evades can cancel 3 dice. Mon Mothma's ability kinda shifts the Evade token's ability down by 1 range, so that at medium range it can cancel 1 die, and at close it forces the opponent to reroll one die.

    Obviously, Mon Mothma's ability doesn't refer to her effect on long range shots because extreme range wasn't a thing when the CR90 ship expansion was released in Wave 1.
    I don't recall FFG mentioning that Mon Mothma's ability changed in Wave 8 when extreme range was introduced; or that they considered updating Mon Mothma's ability.
    I was wondering if anyone else thinks that FFG should update/Errata Mon Mothma's Commander ability so that it cancels 2 dice at long range -- and perhaps 3 dice at extreme range.
    I think that it would make Mon Mothma incredibly effective when facing an Onager, and cause a resurgence in her popularity as a Rebel Commander. 😎

    WhatsArmadaWithYou reacted to BiggsIRL in Cap'n Brunson's Oops All Travel Cancelled Vassal Tournament! 9am EST Registration!   
    Did you block off Friday & Saturday for Worlds, but can't go?
    Got a LOT of free time on your hands now?
    Wish you could play against international competition anyway in a real-time tournament?
    Somehow I got @Karneck to agree to be the judge for this, the most casual and REAL TIME of Vassal Tournaments!

     
    D1 Starts Friday 27th at 10am EST.  D2 Starts Saturday 28th at 10 EST.
    3 hour rounds (because Vassal moves SLOW)
    3 rounds on D1, 2 Rounds D2, then cut to Top 4!
    Standard Tournament Rules otherwise!  Casual AF so me and Karneck can play in it if we get an even number of players.
     
    This is a gauge your interest post.  I'll get more rules and figure out the tournament list submissions or whatever when it's not after midnight.
     
     
    Registration opens at 9am EST and closes at 10am EST

    WhatsArmadaWithYou reacted to Wulfrain in Discussion: Dreadnought   
    Tanky medium base ship (7-9), but with low firepower, 1 squadron and command 3 min.
      This is a good idea points wise for this ship I think, with exception that it should have a little more firepower at broadsides than an assualt frigate. 
    I like the idea of it being rebel or imperial but, definitely would have to include both factions upgrade cards in one box and not more than that.
    One thing though... when you look this ship up... it's classified mostly as a "heavy crusier" so wouldn't it be a bit more beefy than an assualt frigate?

    I’m really looking forward to all the new possibilities that a bunch of new cards will bring to our GCW games. I’m sure most cards with either be unique to the time era (unique officers) or faction specific. But I’m sure there will be several new cards that will work in both timelines in the new CW Box alone. 
     
    Plus, it’s going to be awesome having a all of our current GCW cards that can be used on the new ships right away. 
     
    Its going to be rad and I can’t wait...but I know that I will have to!

    That is might dangerous though. Imagine a ship that has LTT using it. You could put something like 5-7 damage on a single target.

    A few notes about my list:
    - I brought bomber squads but placed a little too much focus on the anti-squads component of my fleet (esp. with Versio on the Corvus).  I just really wanted to win the squad battle. Unfortunately, I only played ONE opponent with ANY squadrons!! 
    - I did not use my Raider effectively, esp w/ nothing to flak in 3 matches, not wanting to risk it much against the 4 ISDs, 1 SSD, and 1 MC80 I faced. I want to say I would have used it more aggressively but using it conservatively was essential in preventing a tabling in Round 4 (and an almost in Round 3 vs the SSD).
    - I took Sovereign off my ISD, which would have been nice, BUT my small 4 point bid gave me the opportunity to choose 1st or 2nd player in my first 3 matches (which was ALWAYS crucial) and allowed my to tie the bid on my 4th match (where I won the roll for initiative). So that was good. I figured out that I still needed to dial in a squad command (usually on turn 3 anyway and use Piett’s ability on something else that turn.)
    - Bomber Command was missed, but not horribly. This was Vegas after all and I decided to gamble on my dice!
    - I fought my first SSD in tournament play and managed to win though a combination of skill and luck. Definitely took both. Very scary thing to face.
    - Didn’t expect to face 2 different dual-long range ISD lists (Motti ISDII/Cymoon = Win! / Dual Chimaera/Sovereign ISDIIs = Loss!)
    - I’ll post some match notes to the best of my recollection (and use of some pics) tomorrow (if I remember).

    Yeah I took 4th and was a bit bummed it was only a top 2.. but LVO went from 3 players to  not holding a tourney to 40+ players this year, so I'm happy it was a legit big tourney and I did well as I haven't played a 400pt game vs an experienced player for 3 months

    Without it enemy squads are free to start whaling on the frigate which can force an inopportune drop

    I got first finishing the day with 38 points after 4 rounds. I got 10-1 vs ISD Lmsu, 10-1 vs ISD/Raider/Squads, 8-3 vs Rieekan aces, and 10-1 vs another ISD/Raider/Squads.
    Sunday morning is the cut and I will be facing someone flying essentially @GiledPallaeon’s NOVA list but with JJ instead of Thrawn.
    Not gonna lie I’m pretty bummed it’s not a cut to top 8 with 3 more rounds of Swiss like at Gencon, single elim games are boring....
