    GENERAL ROMODI
    While a friendly ship is
    attacking a ship, if the
    attack is obstructed by
    a ship or obstacle, the
    attacker does not remove
    a die (even if the attack is
    also obstructed by a card
    effect), and may add 1 red
    die to the attack pool.
    ------------

    I don't get the confusion here.  "If the attack is obstructed by a ship or obstacle," do stuff. 
    Not obstructed by a ship or obstacle?  Doesn't apply. 
    The parenthetical is just a clarification, it doesn't modify the conditions under which the card triggers.  Otherwise it wouldn't be a parenthetical.

    Thanks for the tag @ripper998. 
    @hufflazon's right, Evergreen Fleet Command on Facebook is probably your best bet for the Puget Sound region.  There are regular groups in Tacoma, Lynnwood, and Bremerton, with players who live all over the region.  We are all very friendly, attractive people who are very smart and good at Armada and everyone likes us best.
    If you're further south, @shmitty and @Admiral Theia are in Portland/Vancouver area, with Armada Admirals of Portland on Facebook.
    Further north, there's @Maturin's group in The Other Vancouver, BC.  I'm not sure how they organize.

    Ardaedhel reacted to The Jabbawookie in IG-88B text attack and escort   
    Ships do not ignore Escort because that wording grants them an exception.  Ships ignore Escort because 1. Escort explicitly affects squadrons, and 2. ships don’t “engage” with squadrons.  If they did, and Escort wasn’t specific, it would trump any base rule for ships and prevent them from attacking other squadrons, as either a card effect trumping a base rule or a “cannot” base rule trumping another base rule.
    It’s similar wording, but not applicable.  That said, this is a fresh approach.  Let’s look at the next two most similar wordings in the game: Jendon (a squadron may “perform an attack”) and Counter (“you may attack that squadron with an anti-squadron armament of 2 blue dice.”)
    Jendon can’t go through escort.
    Counter can, but specifically is allowed to do so by the Escort keyword.  That said, it’s on the same “tier” as Escort, whatever that may be.
    It all boils down to whether squadron keywords are card effects or not.

    Also worth pointing out that huge is not an option to hyper in during the AOA, which explicitly calls out 2x small, 2x medium, or 1x large.

    Good points. 
    I truly haven't put enough thought into the new squadrons yet to grok them all, but maybe Hondo would help with this?  You'd have to activate him and lose out on his Rogue for the round, but you could use him to yoink an Escort away to clear up IG's shots.

    Ardaedhel got a reaction from LordCola in IG-88B text attack and escort   
    If squadron keywords are intended to be categorically excluded as "card effects", that definitely needs to be erratad in with the next FAQ, because there is just no textual basis for the claim that the text on a card ceases to count as text on that card if it also appears in the RRG (or supplements).
    I get the logic, but I disagree with it. It's an internally inconsistent application of the rules and opens the door for abuse. Just off the top of my head: command icon headers, crit symbols on alternate crit effects, and upgrade card symbols are all defined in the RRG but used on cards. Are those not card effects, either?

    Ardaedhel reacted to xanderf in (Crew) Vader can discard Gherant during the attack he'd be discarded, right?   
    I guess this seems like an obvious question, but just asking it to make sure...
     
     
    Obviously Gherant protects a ship until it attacks, then normally he'd discard.  (Crew) Vader can discard a crew DURING the attack to get a reroll.
    Sooo...Gherant ship sidles up to an enemy ship, protected his own ship by his effect, begins an attack on the enemy ship, (Crew) Vader discards him for rerolls, then 'after the attack' you'd have to discard him because you made an anti-ship attack...but you can't, he's already gone.  No negative effect of that, nothing is lost or prevented along the way, Vader and Gherant both fully utilized.
    That seems to be true, just checking...

    Unfortunately, it's not our job to decide what's easy or doesn't break things.  We work to stay not just consistent with the rules, but to do so while avoiding unfounded assumptions.
    Which is why I absolutely agree that this needs clarification, and that hopefully squadron keywords are excluded as card effects.  But it's not something we know, and we really shouldn't assume it based on convenience.
