  1. Former Armada player here. I got sick of waiting for new product. And what little player base within two hours of me basically dried up. Legion has introduced me to the hobby aspect more than Armada's squadrons ever did. I enjoy the hobby and the players, while still thin in ranks, are some of the nicest people I've met. The games still take 2+ hours. So you're not going to save time. But there's so much variety in list building and terrain alone that keeps the game fresh. Yes, there are better units than others, and maybe some stronger list consistency, but a skilled player can typically win most matches if they know how their lists work. But not me. I'm pretty bad at the game. ๐Ÿ˜‚
  2. Got my secret Santa gift today. Awesome piece of scatter terrain! Love it!
  3. My package ships tomorrow. I may have had to go get more stamps. Christmas cards are a bear! ๐Ÿคฃ
  4. I wouldn't worry about the January products pushing out beyond then. It's probably just a transit issue. Right?? ::PTSD from being an Armada player:: ๐Ÿคฃ
  5. What jobs did you guys have before FFG/Asmodee? I'm game for a Armada-esque campaign box. I mean if you're looking for opinions. ๐Ÿ˜„
  6. Quick turnaround because there's no plastic involved I assume. It's a good thing that Armada is receiving some love. Wonder if the SSD will ever ship... It's got to be a serious issue if they can't get a final production run approved this late in the game.
  7. Since there is minimal local community, I'm forced to travel 2hrs to go to tournaments to play. I'll definitely travel to stores that either have a reasonable entry price and some prize support (more entry $, the more I expect) or have people I enjoyed playing with. Cool terrain helps as well.
  8. $25 is probably the upper limits for me, but only because every RPQ is at least 2 hours away from me. The further I need to travel, the better the prize support needs to be (especially as a mediocre player with no hope of ending in the top 3).
  9. Legion totally has sucked the wind out of my Armada sails. But honestly, I don't play that more than twice a month either. Adulthood with a kid is hard. Fun and rewarding, but time is definitely at a premium.
  10. Since I don't have a LGS that supports the game, this is kinda neutral. The only time I gain alts are when I go to tournaments. Not upset with it at all. Do like the push to half size fleets for faster play.
  11. Happy Friday! I'm excited that maybe I'll break out this game in 2019. My child and a home renovation really damper free time. ๐Ÿ˜‚
  12. I think this was a stopgap measure due to limited ability to produce more plastic. It's great to have cards to use...but it's going to be tough to get people to play the campaign if you don't have existing players (IMO). I probably will love the smaller games if it means being able to get two in on one night.
  13. Yeah, a 2.0 revision would probably have me step out of the game. But if there was, the squadron situation probably needs to be looked at. And anything to maybe make the game go faster.
  14. I know the Legion podcast "The Fifth Trooper" is planning on being at the panel and is planning on covering it. I think their intent was to stream on their YouTube channel. But who knows what the situation will be.
  15. The hardest part about working service other than people who have no business touching our products (and walking them through troubleshooting), is that it's so rarely a positive interaction. Nobody calls to say thanks. It's neutral at best, and personally insulting at it's worst. Maybe I should call and just say I'm sorry. ๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿ˜„
  16. Call it and start crying like an ex begging to get back together. Test that customer service rep! Signed, a customer service representative.
  17. Thanks for the data crunching and analysis. I've been out of the game for a bit (new kid and home renovations can really take up time), but it's always good to have something crunchy yet palatable to see where things are if I get back in the saddle. Plus, you know, entertainment.
  18. Happy Friday! My Armada stuff has been painted or sharpied for some time (even if it isn't, it's buried away due to home remodeling). Everything recently has been Legion figures, Terrain, or Zombicide Black Plague figures.
  19. I bet there is 1-2 lbs of packaging material with the SSD.
  20. I just want to say as useful as the 2.0 thing is for X Wing, there are places without internet connectivity at game stores (what did they build this place out of?!?!?). I also really dislike the technology required to play a 'manual' miniatures game. But that's mostly a personal preference thing for me. I'd really hate to be forced to a 2.0 for Armada. Especially since how it sure feels like they've let this game go to rot up until recently. I am curious what FFG has up their sleeves for Armada next. I really don't know if they'll take a leap into Clone Wars.
  21. It wouldn't be an Armada release if they didn't miss the target date. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I'm excited regardless.
  22. Legion. XW2.0. A few different board games including Zombicide. Not a single game of Armada. I do hope to change that before the end of Q2. But home renovation and 8mo child is probably the largest barrier for that. Or any real serious gaming. ๐Ÿ˜„
  23. If they're going to stream Armada, it's likely not to happen until they have the SSD in hand to promote with it. So no Armada for you until Q2!!! ๐Ÿ˜‚
  24. So, how long after this gets into the public's hands will somebody start selling knockoffs? Will it take that long for somebody to recreate something on a 3D printer? Listen, I'm bummed mostly because the announcement came after most tickets for the event are sold out. But I am not that freaked out about the existence of it since it's not really changing anything game wise.
