    lpfankabe reacted to Intys Rule in Overlapping in the setup -- THE PARODY   
    Link to the original thread.
     
    TL;DR - basically, Lyraeus is saying that because there are no rules that say it isn't allowed, he can deploy his ships overlapping one another.  Here is his suggested deployment method:
     
     
     
     
    So some players decided to take it a step further to build the ultimate starship:
     
     
     
     
    Another awesome formation:
     
     
     
     
    Since he's sticking to his guns until FFG issues an FAQ to resolve the matter (or hopefully get an email response if he's sent a clarification question out), let's see how far we can push this game in terms of stupidity until FFG says otherwise.
     
     
    Here's an idea:
     
    We GLUE Rhymer and his bomber escort onto the ship base, that way when we move the ship, we bring the bombers along with us.  Now we have extra firepower that goes out to medium range... then we can blu-tac (so we can adjust) another ship on top of the ship facing any direction.... forward/left/right/back.  This will result in an ultra-powerful ship that can probably alpha-strike anything it comes across.
     
    There's no rules saying gluing or blu-tac is not allowed, or anything about putting a ship on top of a ship to gain more attacks and firing arcs.  I've not modified any bases or altered their shape (p4 Tournament rules) so I should be good.
     
    So, since there seems to be no rules saying what I'm planning to do is not allowed, I can do this until FFG says otherwise.... or until somebody can point out a rule that says I can't do this.  And no, "common sense, fair play, and RAI" reasoning does not count.
     
    I'll be readying the popcorn.

    So Intensify Forward Firepower went to a tournament today and Eric (aka, Chance, or Eaay) took 2 Assault Frigate B's with Flight Controllers, Expanded Hanger Bays, Advanced Projectors and maybe some other upgrades. He had Dodonna as his Commander and he had 9, yes I said 9 Y-Wings.
    I don't know who he fought but he got a 3-0 win in the tournament and won it all.
    The ironic part is that this was a Summer kit so he got the Imperial Pilot medal

    I've been having an issue lately.
     
    The list builder is charging me build points for certain Objective cards - basically the victory points are being charged as build points.
     
    I doubt that's a random bug.

    lpfankabe reacted to Swusn in SirWilli's Workshop: Armada stuff   
    So I finally got all my boxes set up, It took me about 6 hours total time to get all the boxes made and my fleet stowed properly and I am amazed. There is so much more room in the armada box now. I even made a few "spacer boxes" so they didn't slide around. I also used a piece of card stock to block the whole in the top of the Armada box.
     
    Thank you so much SirWillibald for all the work you put into this. On the other hand I am a little angry with you because I now have a new obsession. I am going to start work on the Card trays and the Carrier boxes on my next day off

    That is SO freaking sad. Like... SO sad. Who in the hell cares so much about winning that they don't take so many of the ships that make Star Wars iconic?
    Absolutely ridiculous, and it makes me so glad I don't bother with these dumb tournaments, but instead play with friends who say things like "I'm doing a Rebel strike force with a bunch of A Wings protecting the B Wings!" or "Of course I am taking TIE fighters... I am taking a huge swarm of them, along with Vader, because that is what imperials do!"

    Great podcast. Keep 'em coming.
    By way of feedback, you have at least 2 outstanding promises* to fulfill:
    1. Discussion of obstacle placement.
    2. Squadron discussions? I know you've gone away from squadrons altogether, but maybe a discussion on how to actually use the fighters if you were going to try. You've got time to play yet before Wave 2 and see how you could make each fighter work, if you wanted...
    *hah...
