  1. A few of us have contacted FFG directly about this very story. We were told they were aware of the story and had passed it up the corporate chain. Unfortunately, the folks available to take these types of questions are not the people who can answer them. My understanding is there have been more than a few people asking, so I hope we'll get an answer.
  2. Nope. Leia OP. @geek19 has no excuse for losing anymore.
  3. They definitely alluded to as much. The pass token discussion was cryptic. I can't wait until they detail more of that.
  4. http://www.steelstrategy.com/2020/07/biggs-vs-truthiness-round-1.html
  5. While true, what's interesting is that the Legion and X-Wing steams do not mention rules despite the fact they follow kind of the same pattern of "new wave, new rules."
  6. It was an intentional parody of what you did for the round 2 pairings. Completely intentional. No screw up here. Nope. Move along. Move along.
  7. I'm free from grad school! Let me just take a quick breather... OWW OWW OWW! STOP HITTING ME BIGGS! Fine, I'll write something! http://www.steelstrategy.com/2020/07/grand-moff-ritr-biggs-vs-truthiness.html
  8. Hammerhead Torps with ACMs, DCAPs, and OEs have been my go to. They're cheap and painful.
  9. Mandatory in my opinion. I've never seen a successful Sato list that didn't include him.
  10. The first 24 hour tourney was quite popular. The format is back by popular demand.
  11. Listing on the distributor site is already gone.
  12. Comics are good enough of a source for me, which is what expands the First Order into a viable faction: https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Maxima-A_class_heavy_cruiser (Mel's as a fantastic mock of up of this ship: https://www.shapeways.com/product/JUMKF6WLH/armada-maxima-a-heavy-cruiser?optionId=165067910&li=shops) https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/First_Order_Light_Cruiser I wouldn't expect the model for the Resurgent to be really that much bigger than an ISD. Add like 10% length and call it done. I don't really care about the art books that give them ridiculous length. On screen they look to be about the same size as the Sith Fleet ISDs (again, I don't really care that the art book made these randomly bigger for...reasons?). We have a sliding scale anyway. So that said, in my mind we have a large in the Resurgent, a medium in the Maxima (which Mel's Miniatures has done an excellent model for) and a small in the light cruiser. If we really wanna get froggy, you can add the Xyston Star Destroyer from the Final Order. That's enough to flesh out a pretty good faction on its own before getting into repeats. The Resistance has enough from just TLJ alone. The MC85 (again, sliding scale, screw the random numbers in an art book), the Ninka, and the new-style Nebs is enough to make them unique before repeats. I'm sure there are others from the comics as well.
  13. I would consider 3 ships and some fighers enough to start an Armada faction. That's enough for a starter set and a follow up wave. Resistance and First Order have juuuuuuuuust enough to fill out the start of a fleet. I think the Grysk were depicted in a comic, right?
  14. Oddly enough, I'm pretty sure @Ginkapo @shmitty and I all prefer ACMs over APTs to get damage ramping up quickly. I'm not sure what @ExplosiveTooka prefers.
  15. To echo Shmitty, long range black dice is Sato's thing. Sure, he can do other dice in a pinch, but the players who have gotten the most out of him have done so with black dice. While he doesn't do all that well competitively because he can be very matchup dependent, he has been known to give people some nightmares. @Alzer can speak to the Minnesota meta absolutely hating Sato. All of that is really just to say, if you wanna do some long range black dice, give Sato a shot. @ExplosiveTooka @shmitty and myself have all dabbled with Sato and had some level of success. I'd be happy to share my experiences.
  16. The designs are excellent, but Shapeways has gotten more and more expensive. I do not recommend getting anything below the high quality. The lower quality stuff is typically quite grainy. The high quality is on part with FFG Armada detail, if not a little better because Mel does such good work.
  17. Or how about Millennium Falcon Rey? Lando and Han are so overrated anyway.
  18. Reading is hard for whiny little children like you apparently.
  19. Get outta here you damned demi-Canadian!
  20. Yeah, pretty sure it was Dropfleet Commander (the ship version of Dropzone Commander). I know Dropzone Commander is mighty tempting for me. I love me some massed combated arms warfare. If Dropfleet is anything like Dropzone, I understand the temptation. @shmitty was going to run me through a game of Dropzone at Adepticon, but alas, covid killed that plan.
