  1. The good part starts around the 12 minute mark but I just saw this video and thought this is EXACTLY what I would think Star Wars Armada as a video game would look like. I thought some of you might be into this. Update, First look at the campaign, man I can't get over how much this seems to be a video game version of Armada. I so wish EA didn't have an exclusivity deal. It would be great to see a Star Wars mod for this.

    TLJ Ships

    It is a **** of a lot more greebely (sp?). Sleek isn't about being flat, it is about being smooth and flowing.

    TLJ Ships

    I really like all the resistance ships. I like the rag-tag look of them. It is kind of weird that they felt the need to make the Raddus so huge but it is not a big deal. As far as the First order, I like the Finalizer, she is a good natural progression from the ISD, The Supremacy makes perfect sense as the space born capital of a space born Empire, Being so large makes perfect sense and she looks beautiful The only thing I don't like is that it is called a "Mega class". Why not just call her a Supremacy class? As others have pointed out Mega class is pretty juvenile. The Fulminatrix.... I don't know what to say, this ship looks dumb, she does not match the sleek and clean aesthetic of the other two and looks completely out of place.

    APP for Amazon appstore?!

    The rulebook pdf says it's available in the Amazon app store so I assume it is on it's way. I hope so because a fire tablet is ridiculously cheap.
  5. Just posting to let The Cocky Rooster know I am still extremely excited for this but have no new information or speculation to add.
  6. The campaign will scale based on how many expansions you have. My group has been playing the Descent version and I want to say we are 7 or 8 missions in and haven't even got to the tier 2 monsters yet so I want to say if you have all the expansions you will get a very long campaign.
  7. I think part of the wait for this was having it go through Lucasfilm approval. Hopefully keeping everything thematic was part of that approval process.
  8. This broke my brain bit I love every word of it.
  9. Yeah, I understand if they needed to work on it or maintain it the rebellion may not have had compatible parts. Refitting it with engines they could maintain would make sense. We also know rebels have a lot of experience refitting ships quickly seeing as every ship in their fleet is pretty much a refit. The problem comes from the same place as all the other problems with this story. It is simply too short to tell the story they were trying to tell. They needed the campaign to be at least 2-3 times longer than it was to tell the whole story.

    App question...

    Yes, the new rule book even has a section on a single player campaign. Basically you run 2 characters.
  11. Actually the descent app kind of does this, my group got some statue in a random encounter that does 2 automatic damage at the end of any dragons activation, the app remembers we have this and tells us to apply the damage any time we let it know a dragon's activation is finished. We also got another artifact at one point that gave us a bonus I cannot remember and at some point in the campaign it just burnt up on us and we lost it. The app does great at adding in little random events and items.
  12. A smart phone is definitely too small. We use a Microsoft surface pro and that is the smallest I would suggest.
  13. So some quick Google-fu shows me it was about a month in between the announcement of the descent app and it's release. I hope this one is a little quicker but a month ain't bad.

    The descent app was on Android, apple and in the steam store IIRC, this should be the same.

    FFG We Need to Nerf Darth Vader (Squadron)

    I think Escort on Vader is backwards. The should drop Escort on Vader and he should give Escort to any friendly squadron with Swarm within range 1. I think he should have Scatter/Brace instead of Brace/Brace.

    Any players in south FL?

    I'm in Coral Springs, I'm trying to get regular sessions going near me but unfortunately there is not to much interest. There used to be a group that got together every Thursday in Miami but the store closed down and it never really got going again. If you are interested PM me. I usually play at Loot: games and Comics. https://www.facebook.com/LootGC/
  17. Fun fact: According to Dave Filloni, George Lucas always hated the Ysalamiri because every living thing was connected to the force. Because of that Ysalamiri will never be canon. Granted anything is possible but if Dave says they won't ever be canon it's probably a safe bet.

    Reading From A Certain Point Of View...

    I loved the book I just wish there was a little more collaboration between authors covering the same thing. Seriously there are at least 5 stories set around the cantina and all of them contradict each other. There are also two stories that mention Biggs realizing Luke is on Yavin 4 that contradict each other and in two other stories it is mentioned that they had more pilot's than fighters and in the next one they say they have more fighters than pilots. It's a great read and I strongly recommend it but there are constant contradictions throughout.

    Mega Star Destroyer

    Love the design of the ship.... Hate the class name. I agree with most that the "Make it like the OT but bigger" mentality is wearing thin but in this one ship it actually makes sense. If this was designed to be a mobile capital, command center and ship yard for the FO then it should be HUGE. But calling it Mega class seems extremely juvenile, the new walkers are meh at best, the new whatever that other planetary bombardment ship is looks horrible. The Raddus looks cool but suffers from the make it the same but bigger trope.
  20. My only question: So Raddus says "You may set aside 1 OTHER friendly ship" This means he cannot set aside the ship he is on right? Meaning if I wanted to do a thematic Scarrif Battle where Raddus jumps in with The Profundity he cannot because he cannot be on the ship that is being set aside correct? However if I put him on and AF mkII I can jump that in (If my opponent for some reason picks "Hyperspace Assault") then from there I can jump in Profundidty and a Hammerhead corvette. From a thematic point of view this feels like a fail. If I wanted to deploy Raddus aboard the Profundity it would have to be done during the deployment phase and I could set aside another Large base ship and a corvette for later deployment meaning all fire will be focused on the Profundity. The Profundidty would have to survive at least 2-3 rounds on her own to jump other ships into use full positions. The other alternative is to deploy a small fast ship in the deployment phase and try to maneuver that somewhere useful without getting blown up for 3-4 rounds. when all enemy forces will be focusing fire on it. Granted some amazing players may be able to make Raddus sing but I think it will be more failures than successes and the fact that is a thematic fail is what I dislike the most about it.
  21. I figured it out! This dreadnought is 4 of 8. They all fit together to create a large pizza deathstar laser thingy.

    I Kinda Would Like Some Ewoks

    Not sure if OP is joking or not but I'd like an Ewok army. I'm not quit sold on Legion yet and am watching closely to see if I will buy (at this point I am leaning more to the "no" side) But an Ewok army would be an insta buy for me.
  23. That's a real world legion. This discussion is about an Imperial legion in a fantasy sci-fi universe.
