  1. As a guy with multiple copies of each ship for Armada - I'll skip this Wave! Both ships are too special/ugly..
  2. These cards are Just perfection and 1000 times better than Wave 8 content ๐Ÿ’
  3. Both ships are ugly in my oppinion... First Armada Wave Im a bit dissatisfied with ๐Ÿ˜‘
  4. Just noticed another shop I didnt knew before has it in stock, too..
  5. It seems like the only store in Germany getting the SSD is Fantasywelt.de, which is interesting as there are many other tabletob shops out there. Do anybody know another German store getting the SSD? Or do somebody else placed his order there?
  6. As there wont be a german (or any translated version) this time, releasing process could be a bit faster so I think it could reach stores in 2nd week of August.
  7. I remember earlier releases always arrived 2..3 weeks later in EU/Germany as in the US. So I estimate my SSD will arrive late August / early September.. Why do you think this time Europe would get their SSDs before US? ๐Ÿ™„
  8. Im highly interested in this new VSD title. As this has been discussed several times before, I cant wait for details. Is it a navigation or speed buff? Do we know something about that title yet?
  9. Its nice to see people talking about new factions again, just because an article about Armada released, telling us that we can deploy fleets with 600 pts and above and playing "Multiplayer"...... Anyway clone wars era would be awesome in Armada. But we should keep in mind that its just dreaming and imagination.
  10. No star system will dare oppose the emperor now! Nobody stops the empire Faction: Galactic Empire Points: 1197/1200 Commander: Darth Vader Assault Objective: Custom Objective Defense Objective: Custom Objective Navigation Objective: Custom Objective [ flagship ] Executor II-class Star Dreadnought (411 points) - Darth Vader ( 36 points) - Executor ( 2 points) - Emperor Palpatine ( 3 points) - Instructor Goran ( 7 points) - Quad Battery Turrets ( 5 points) - Quad Turbolaser Cannons ( 10 points) - Overload Pulse ( 8 points) = 482 total ship cost Imperial II-Class Star Destroyer (120 points) - Devastator ( 10 points) - Admiral Chiraneau ( 10 points) - Flight Controllers ( 6 points) - Expanded Hangar Bay ( 5 points) - Reinforced Blast Doors ( 5 points) - Heavy Turbolaser Turrets ( 6 points) - Heavy Ion Emplacements ( 9 points) = 171 total ship cost Imperial Star Destroyer Cymoon 1 Refit (112 points) - Admiral Ozzel ( 2 points) - Gunnery Team ( 7 points) - Spinal Armament ( 9 points) - Heavy Turbolaser Turrets ( 6 points) = 136 total ship cost Imperial I-Class Star Destroyer (110 points) - Avenger ( 5 points) - Minister Tua ( 2 points) - Boarding Troopers ( 3 points) - Electronic Countermeasures ( 7 points) - Heavy Turbolaser Turrets ( 6 points) = 133 total ship cost Gozanti-class Cruisers (23 points) - Bomber Command Center ( 8 points) = 31 total ship cost 3 TIE Bomber Squadrons ( 27 points) 1 Major Rhymer ( 16 points) 4 TIE Fighter Squadrons ( 32 points) 1 "Howlrunner" ( 16 points) 1 "Mauler" Mithel ( 15 points) 3 TIE Interceptor Squadrons ( 33 points) 1 Lambda-class Shuttle ( 15 points) 2 TIE Advanced Squadrons ( 24 points) 2 Mandalorian Gauntlet Fighters ( 40 points) 1 Boba Fett ( 26 points) = 244 total squadron cost Devastator is going to spam squadron commands and guide the Howlrunner/Mithel/Interceptor wing. Avenger is spamming squadron commands, too and guides good ol' Rhymer ball - and Avenger should stay in the Executors flank to benefit from OP. Cymoon deals some volleys from behind and the Executor kills what is in range. The Gozanti remote-controls the TIE-Advanced wing and Boba's Mandalorian wing is going to hunt down enemy squadrons.
  11. A guy called "Asmodee" confirmed it in a facebook post. I dont know who is this guy, but german Armada community interpretates him as officially speaking. The reason he gave was that it would not be worth it to produce a german version. So I assume that there wont be spanish or french versions either - a hard proof that the interest in Armada has lowered.
  12. The lack of a german version of the SSD is a clear proof of that. I'll be fine with the english version, but you can interprate this as a sign of Armada's downfall, as it shows how Armadas european market/community develops...
  13. Search your feelings young Wookie... You will know it to be true.
  14. As there wont be an article before 31th February 2142 and no german version of the SSD either at all, I finally declare this game dead. To be honest, its **** tragic. But we should face that truth as soon as possible -.-
  15. Imagine you got 12 damage on one of your ISDs and you choke Motti out of the game... And.. why is Jerry unchokable? Does the emperor share his optimistical appraisal of the situation?
  16. Gozantis with Comms Net can help out and give you the tokens Piett need. But 25pts to get a commander in that place you want him to be.. I dont know... that would be 47pts. Seems Thrawn is way better to go if you want better and more flexible commands as imperial player. Im thinking about Piett list with a ISD Carrrier, him and Yularen. Get squadron token in first round and you got your auto-squadron-spam on that ship. With your "normal dials" you can do some more standard battleship stuff beside (repair, cf). But away from that concept I dont see a niche for Piett to be honest. EDIT: For Piett as my favourite imperial officer from the movies, I expected a more firepower-based effect. Krennic will do that job I wished for Piett now.
  17. According to my play- and listbuilding style, Piett is a very hard one to fit in properly. Normally with most of the ships I deploy, I have a strict plan of what Im gonna do and which commands going to be revealed. So my first problem is from where I should get that tokens his effect need. If you spend 90% of your command dials directly you dont got Tokens. To spam commands I choose combos with Taskmaster Grint, for example to create an Interdictor tank monster by combining repair dial and token every round. Piett its not working here, because he is not allowed to deal a token like a dial if you play out a dial of the same type. This is why he's not that good with the SSD from my point as some ppl say, unless youre revealing a different command every round. For me this are major limitations for him. If you get a Token at Round 1 and spam a different dial from Round 2 on he may be an interesting Commander, but you need to get your Token back so Yularen is needed. And keep in mind that he's just working once per round.. which is bad for lists with 2 or more ships.
  18. It seems Vader works fine with characters he choked in the films like Ozzel and Needa. Both are low cost and their effect ist triggered during deployment/1st round. If FFG already planed this for Needa back then under Wave II development, they did a great job on that mechanic.
  19. I guess it will be 32th Octcember 2142. Before that Date they will still have some X-Wing and Legion articles left.
  20. I'd love to see some more stuff beside new ship content like another campaign pack, a ship card/title card package or asteroid models. As I always interpreted Armada as a tabletop version of the video game Empire at War, it would be great to see an eaw-style mission pack where you dont deploy fleets of a certain point limitation, but starting with a few squadrons and bulding asteroid mines to get more ships and upgrades.
  21. Assuming that we will stay at 400pts as standard point limit, I think the SSD wont be that invincible monster we may imagine. One single SSD + a few upgrades and squadrons will reach the 400 very fast. Double or Triple ISD-Lists will still be the way to go. So, with my interpretation of playing Rebels, spamming Flotillas and flying unique squadrons is trendy, do you guys really think playing one single fat whale is gonna change things? I dont think so.. For me the SSD will be the most iconic game element since Wave IV and it will shine in narrative, custom games with 600+ point limits - but wont have that meta-changing impact on your rebel friends.
  22. To give another statement of my thoughts about the VSD in Armada I created this Title-card. I think the VSD is a good ship and dont needs any overhauls - so maybe you get the right message from the card :D Maybe its still overpriced because everything on the VSD is overpriced (including the VSD itself, of course).
