  1. *brain explodes in Southern over and over and over again*
  2. It would appear my use of a rhetorical acetylene torch was too kind. I'll jump straight to tactical nukes next time. Go reread my second response. I'm impressed so much is still applicable here.

    Vassal World Cup Results

    @comatose vs GiledPallaeon has completed. He chose to go second, and I took his Targeting Beacons. He's got the logfile, but the long and the short of it is that Jan/GH X-wings still rule the squad game, and I traded my entire Defender wing for a [redacted] single [redacted] Z-95. However, the distraction let the bombers wear down the MC75 enough (and generously rolled little enough damage the Interdictor had to enter play) that HMS Nike was able to bring down the MC75, before joining her comrades in a very hasty retreat from the vengeful Rebels. Final Scores 94 - 168 respectively, for 74 MoV and a 7-4 (how cute).

    What I would like to see in 2019

    If you want to cross the river(s), the nearest ford is Brandywine, a day’s ride that way.

    Disregard previous message. Logfile incoming. Have at, ladies and gents. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1uTQOHzp6Rno0Ir1mRUng8Xos6_TOgUVF/view?usp=sharing
  6. GiledPallaeon vs @Roquax kicking off the World Cup in style right now. (Sorry we didn't warn you @BiggsIRL, bit of a hack job)
  7. @Roquax we meet again (for the what time running?)

    First Tournament List Suggestion

    ISD/Quasar Sloane is pretty standard. It's also exceptionally fragile against aggressive MSU and Raddus, so it is definitely not perfect. I recommend Defenders as the squadron of choice, but many disagree with me. You should be able to find a fair few Sloane lists laying around if you want some inspiration.

    First Tournament List Suggestion

    Apologies for the slow reply, I'm not on here as much as I used to be. You need to do one of two things with that list: you need to dump the Cymoon or you need to dump JJ. Given the loadout of the Kuat, I recommend the former. I-2s are perfectly suitable candidates for long and medium range fire, and come with defensive retrofit slots. Unrequested opinion: Ditch Ciena and Valen. They die quite quickly, especially if the other guy has any modicum of speed or additional forces. Use the points to beef up the I-2, it will be more expensive than the Cymoon, but it will work better without fickle reds to screw you over on a match by match basis. Feel free to spend the points to make one of the Gozs the Jerk Gozanti (Slicers, Suppressor, Tua/ECMs). If you have any more questions I'll try to get back on tomorrow or Friday to check in. For maneuver, always put the long range ISD on the outside of the curve, and the Kuat on the inside. They take a fair amount of getting used to and dearly hate being outdeployed, so be careful. Good luck.

    And Legion bypasses Armada in expansions...

    Clearly not a GW or ForgeWorld guy. Let me give you a sample (no I don't own this but I know a guy who does). https://www.games-workshop.com/en-US/Smaug

    I have them all, and will get to posting them eventually. Promise. Remind me Thursday evening if you haven't heard from me on this by then.

    @Crabbok You are welcome to send Orlando’s lists back with me if you want. It’s no big deal to me.

    Working on making that not zero, maybe. I dunno, turbolaser, or DR and Ordnance? It's really hard to justify frequently.

    Best podcast for a new player.

    Allow me to be blunt. You are a troll @AllWingsStandyingBy. You didn't use to be, but you are now. I cannot count the number of threads formerly positive in the last month you have arrived to troll with unwanted negativity and general complaining, often at best tangent to the original point. So yes, I took your ORJ suggestion as a troll. You complain about people driving people away from the forums with negativity, while doing the most to achieve that result yourself of anyone as active as you currently on these forums. Think about that, including a break, because you clearly don't enjoy the forums (the jury on whether you enjoy Armada is out). In the interest of not further derailing the thread, I will not reply further. Have a good day all.

    Obvious troll is obvious. In all seriousness ORJ is a bit of a niche taste. Good content, but presentation that many find juvenlie and unappealing (myself included). @drail14me I'm not really a podcast person so I'll wave vaguely in the direction of the other constructive posts and tell you that anything that comes up that often can't be too terrible.
