  1. I would like to repeat this for emphasis. The only “gitting” of “gud” two ship creates a need for happens in the fleetbuilding stage, and it’s not even any “gud”. It’s entirely “Do I crumple if it hit at D5* by the most efficient squadrons in the game, continuously, while the other guy runs away at speed 3? If yes, scrap it and try again”. That’s not healthy, that’s just list gate-keeping. Aceholes had the same effect. That’s not good.
  2. American matchups are now posted. Due to the delay with posting those final games, I will be extending the due date for Round 4 until Sunday, August 25th. This is the last round of normal play. After this, the two division winners and the two highest scorers otherwise will face off in the Final Four.
  3. Yeah I noticed that just a moment ago and corrected it. Did you notice who your opponent was? There was a hint.
  4. Brought down @Formynder4's yesterday as first player bottom of turn 5 with this list: Name: Thrawn LMSU Faction: Imperial Commander: Grand Admiral Thrawn Assault: Most Wanted Defense: Hyperspace Assault Navigation: Solar Corona ISD Kuat Refit (112) • Grand Admiral Thrawn (32) • Strategic Adviser (4) • Darth Vader (3) • Electronic Countermeasures (7) • Leading Shots (4) • Assault Concussion Missiles (7) • Chimaera (4) • Entrapment Formation! (5) = 178 Points Gladiator I (56) • Captain Brunson (5) • Ordnance Experts (4) • Engine Techs (8) • Assault Concussion Missiles (7) • Demolisher (10) = 90 Points Arquitens Light Cruiser (54) • Captain Needa (2) • Turbolaser Reroute Circuits (7) = 63 Points Gozanti Cruisers (23) • Hondo Ohnaka (2) • Comms Net (2) = 27 Points Gozanti Cruisers (23) • Comms Net (2) = 25 Points Squadrons: = 0 Points Total Points: 383 The same list defeated a different SSD (same opponent) on turn 4 the week before, but that was Vassal, which definitely counts. Only loss yesterday was Demo, only loss game before that was Needa/TRC.
  5. Round 4 pairings for Europe have been posted. I am awaiting reply for one remaining match for the Americans, which if I do not receive a reply soon will be considered null and both players dropped. Americans curious about their tentative matchup may view the Sheet with the fleets and existing round matchups and results for their possible opponent.
  6. Now that I have mine in hand, I have good news and bad news, and I'm not entirely sure where one stops and one starts. The fact of the matter is this: FFG's claims to the contrary, the display model to date must not have been a production model, because the lateral seams prominently present on that prototype are nowhere to be found on the production variant. What appears to have happened is that FFG acquired the deep magicks and was able to actually cast the upper armored hull in a single segment (the deep magicks being a reference to the fact that by the data given to me in my manufacturing classes, this should be impossible.) The upper superstructure is multiple pieces, with no obvious rhyme or reason; the lower superstructure appears to be primarily continuous as well, but clearly has places where it was also assembled prior to being mated to the top (only the rearmost engine bank appears to be part of that mold, the other four are not). So, in summary, you actually might be able to take the Super apart, but you are taking the entire ship apart at once. Good luck.
  7. Now that we have the Super, Endor could be a possibility.......
  8. Of those, FFG created only the Raider. The AF2 and the MC30 both had previous appearances, in Empire at War (the Forces of Corruption expansion for the MC30 specifically). It would be an unprecedented show of faith by Disney in FFG to let them unveil the Starhawk, let alone design it.
  9. Warning: I'm reasonably sure that the SSD is a doomed project for cracking it open and lighting it from the inside. The following is educated supposition based on a close examination of the prototype at Worlds this year (well, as close as one can get through a glass case). So the rest of FFG's ships don't have lateral seams that cut through the main sections of the hulls. The Super has not one but two lateral seams that cross the entire ship left to right, from top to bottom. At least one crosses the superstructure (I believe both do but I can't find my pictures anymore). What this means is that, as best as can be told from the outside there is either no internal support between the sections to control warping at those seams, or there is significant controls, which will make it *exceedingly* difficult to open if they are as significant as a ship of this size probably warrants, especially on the first one without a detailed set of manufacturing drawings. If you want to attempt this, it would be my personal expectation at least one Super will have to be sacrificed to understand how it's assembled, if it's possible to open it without destroying it, and if it's at all possible to achieve any meaningful quality control reassembling the ship. Like I led with at the beginning, I don't have manufacturing drawings, and I don't have a sacrificial model I've sliced open to examine. However, those are my observations and my best deductions from those observations. Do with this information what you will.
  10. Please find the third round matchups posted in the main thread. Good luck folks.
  11. I mean, I’m obviously considering all your suggestions, so keep firing away. This is what I get for editing on mobile. Did you spot any of the Easter eggs I hid?
  12. You’re fine, I had to check to make sure I did that. Yeah I give up on that sentence. Rewrote it again.
  13. I do define it the first time I use it, but as it’s not a true initialism like the others I can see how it got missed. It means “Length OverAll”. Fixed, thank you. Also corrected, thank you. You can tell this is the rare sentence I paused writing partway through. I rewrote that line, see if you think it’s better now. Basically dreadnoughts so outclass battleships the comparison between the two is often worthless.
