    Let's talk SSD speculation!

    I think they might errata PDR - looking at the duplicate cards that come with the SSD and are only found in Rebel expansions; RLB, HIE, PDR - PDR is completely under powered. I think we might see it change to "While attacking a squadron at close-medium range you may reroll one of your #crit icons"

    Let's talk SSD speculation!

    "At the start of each round, gain "1 pass token", when it is your turn to activate you may instead play this token and pass your activation to your opponent.

    Let's talk SSD speculation!

    What about that card that coukd be a ship card but is backwards? First from the left, perhaps a rule cheat sheet covering Huge ships?

    What ship have you not used in a long time?

    I haven't used the Assualt Frigate in a very long time. Sector fleet points and Ackbar have made me put them into the lists, but still haven't put them on a table.

    No anti squad die, nice.

    FFG ARMADA Article: Interview online!!!

    It wasn't the article we need. It was....not the article we deserved. Also, I guess, it was, at least, an article.
  7. A preview article for the upcoming SSD, with expected release date. An announcement article for the next wave of Star Wars: Armada products. A plan or idea to address the #1 complaint of individuals interested in Armada: not buying in because play time is too long Retrofit kits for Core and Wave 1 ships to make them more competitive. An online system or app where players can log their non-official Armada battles and input their W/L, MOV, TP etc. and achieve special seasonal objectives for each faction based on performance. thanks FFG for making my birthday special!
  8. Thanks all! We can wish for FFG but hey, there's always the amazing community of Armada players.

    XX-9, FCT, crit

    Rebels next Admiral should be a fleet wide FCT effect. "Once per activation you may spend one die to activate two non-standard critical effects" Would make the MC75 and the MC80L and the MC30s soooo nasty.
  10. Everytime I start to get down on the game, playing an in-person Armada battle really hypes me up. Even though I find the tournaments and really hard fought games mentally exhausting, I am ready to play soon after. It's when I don't play *and* don't have anything to look forward to that I get down on the health and longevity of Armada.

    Squadrons 3

    I would def. love to see the following: Rebs: Lando Falcon (Relay 2 for Rebs, friendly squads at distance 1 of you are obstructed when defending against attacks) Porkins X-Wing, (Escort, Bomber, when an enemy squadron attacks Porkins, if Porkins would be removed from the play area the attacking squadron suffers 3 damage) Kyle Katarn in the Ravens Claw, (Rogue, Counter 2, if Jan Ors is at distance 1 of you, she can't be attacked by squadrons she is engaged with, unless the enemy is performing a counter attack) Imps: Mara Jade - in an Imperial Navy Gunboat, (Rogue, Grit, when attacking an Ace or unique squadron, add 1 die of any color to your attack pool) Skerris - TIE/i (Counter 2, Swarm, when defending against attacks, you may choose to suffer all damage between any number of generic or unique TIE/i at distance 1) Lothal Ace Pilot (TIE/f with 1x blue 2xblack anti squad armament)

    SSD Delayed

    That would be interesting. My thoughts lately around Armada and the SSD boil down to: What was the most asked for product? The SSD. FFG did listen, and responded. Sure they haven't been transparent about their schedule, production snafus, or communicating really anything at all to the Armada community....which is wrong. Once my thought process gets over that, I try to think what was the second most asked for product? The only thing I can think of is the Venator - but you can't do that without adding in CW factions... which would require a lot of play testing and new product and might explain why they've been reluctant to announce WEight (Wave 8, cause, ya know the SSD is heavy) because it's more than just that? The only real hint I've seen is the release of Sector Fleet rules - new factions could spice up the 2v2/3/4 quite a bit by showing us something much different. On the other hand it's all conjecture.

    It's not about if the SSD is delayed....

    He's right it is not a good sign. It's the exact same timeline when HBS killed Golem Arcana. The releases slowed. The communications got less and less frequent. They even had one more big release the Merc factions "Bone Golem" colossi. HBS is a much smaller company than FFG, mayne a dozen or less products so the situation could be very different, but the simalarities are the same.
  14. Is it just me or do the defensive admirals have a clear advantage over the offensive ones? Since the defensive ones benefit you, all game, and the offensive ones only benefit against one opposing player, when that opposing player is done for your admiral's ability won't be effective.
  15. Oh wow, so technically Ackbar, Vader, Sato etc. will work against all opponents. Cool.
  16. I interpreted it as Screed's" spend one die" effect only working when shooting one other admirals ships. Since it's a "While Attacking" (that selected Admiral*) *Sector Fleet rules

    Flechette and Tokens

    The best you've got is the MC75 AC with Ruthless and Ordnance Pods or FT and some YT1300s. QBL for that sweet, sweet Counter 1 when Dengar rolls in with the SloBaces (Sloan Ball Aces) to continue to use Ruthless. Maybe Draven but then that's the Officer, the Weapons Team, the O Retro, and the Torpedo upgrade slots all to counter the SloBaces., on a large base ship. Hammerhead Scout has the blue you can use with Ruthless, but much easier for SloBaces to just fly around and ignore your small base AA platform. My suggestion: Run Imps to counter SloBaces in your local meta. /I did not type this post just to see how many times I could use SloBaces. //It's really sad when Markeek rolls up and disintegrates your MC80s Brace in round 2 with help from Jendon.

    No new factions. More upgrades?

    They don't *need* it. You could make the Raddus or a Star Hawk as a large base ship at a starting point of 150 points. Stronger than an ISD, much weaker than an SSD.

    No new factions. More upgrades?

    I honestly think we will see a new campaign box very soon. (Very soon in FFG terms = about 12 months) We've heard rumors "WEight" (Wave 8 ) is in play testing, it could incldue a campaign box but I think that is unlikely. If they do release product alongside a campaign box it's either going to be a new floitlla for each faction or a HUGE Rebel ship with the campaign centered around the SSD and the Rebel HUGE classes. It would be most excellent for the campaign box to come with new titles, new commanders, and/or retrofits for existing ships. There should be a carrier version of the Liberty, a fleet command MC80.

    Alert All Commands! New article!

    I really hope we can get some OP Official Tournament Kits made for multiplayer. Even if they're cobbled together from past/unused kits. Since one game might take all day, that's it. Winning team takes all. Which might actually end earlier than a 3-game tourney even without a top cut.

    Alert All Commands! New article!

    Also this is going to turn list building on it's head, 600, 800, 1000, and 1200 points. Oomph. Suddenly I feel like having at least 1, usually 2 of every ship is no longer enough lol. Well played FFG.

    Alert All Commands! New article!

    So only Commanders with friendly affects your own ships, but I guess upgrade cards can affect team wide? EX: Home One, Leia (Officer), Toryn Far? Of course those are all unique so only one per team.
  23. Amazon has updated the expected release date from March 29th to April 30th. I expect our article from FFG now at the standard, "two month before release" right on time for Feb 30th.

    Maybe we were all wrong

    Nah. There was no reason to not update on Twitter or FB or somewhere, "Hey everyone check out our flyer in this months (Dec) issue of GTM!" So they have an inability to let the community know even when *they do* have published information.
  25. These are probably the same complainers that took to the forums screeching about "not having a device that can download and use apps/not wanting to bring a device to their X-Wing games/now being forced to have a tablet or phone just to play X-Wing 2.0"
