  1. Good idea @Tokra. Here’s what I was very seriously considering this year: Faction: Galactic Empire Points: 395/400 Commander: Admiral Screed Assault Objective: Surprise Attack Defense Objective: Asteroid Tactics Navigation Objective: Infested Fields Raider II-Class Corvette (48 points) - Corvus ( 2 points) - Iden Versio ( 6 points) - Disposable Capacitors ( 3 points) - Heavy Ion Emplacements ( 9 points) = 68 total ship cost Gozanti-class Cruisers (23 points) - Hondo Ohnaka ( 2 points) - Comms Net ( 2 points) = 27 total ship cost [ flagship ] Onager-class Star Destroyer (110 points) - Admiral Screed ( 26 points) - Cataclysm ( 5 points) - Governor Pryce ( 7 points) - Gunnery Chief Varnillian ( 6 points) - Linked Turbolaser Towers ( 7 points) - Superheavy Composite Beam Turbolasers ( 7 points) = 168 total ship cost 1 Dengar ( 20 points) 1 Boba Fett ( 26 points) 1 Mauler Mithel ( 15 points) 3 Firespray-31s ( 54 points) 1 Tel Trevura ( 17 points) = 132 total squadron cost As an alternative, I was also considering of an Agate Liberty & Rogues list or Agate Starhawk & Rogues list, but I just don’t have as much practice with those options.
  2. I’ve managed to take down less tanky Starhawks with a variety of Onager lists, but the Walex/EST variant is a tough one. I did bring down a similar list last week with Paragon & Admonition backed by full squads: https://armadaaarsbydave.blogspot.com/2020/03/agate-paragon-admo-vs-agate-starhawk.html Burst damage from numerous sources seems to be the key. Cham Syndulla was a huge help to block the continuous repairs.
  3. Yeah, the Starhawk can eat the Kuat for breakfast in a head-on match. Salvo is brutal against Gladiators as well. The Starhawk can definitely do well, but as people get to know what it’s capable of they’ll be less inclined to close with it unless they have a reasonable chance of getting the kill.
  4. I’ve been catching up with a bit of a backlog of AARs lately. Here’s one from a recent 2-round tournament: https://armadaaarsbydave.blogspot.com/2020/03/casual-tournament-with-agate-unity.html I was paired against Yavaris MSU in both games and took the win. Unfortunately, my wins were not overwhelming and I only got third place. Fun stuff.
  5. Great segment on the Nav Teams. I totally discounted it and you’ve inspired me to give it a try.
  6. First thought on this is the advantage it would give to force multipliers that are already strong. Yavaris is the obvious example with Adar also coming into play. These would need to be mitigated. The second issue is that it removes large fighter coverage entirely. With only 100 points, you can’t fit the requisite support squadrons (Intel, Escort, etc.) to make bombers a thing. Multipurpose squadrons would be given a big boost while the more specialized squadrons would be hit hard. I don’t think that this would be an improvement. I’m hoping that squadron play sees some streamlining in the Clone Wars release.
  7. @BrobaFett took the win against me. I managed to take down his Quasar on turn two before it could activate, but he cleaned out my Decimator ball pretty handily and took down my Dictor as well after I flew it into his face. Demo was the only survivor on my side. I managed to bring down the Quasar plus Howlrunner, Mauler, and Saber for 180 MOV to him. Here is the complete-write up: https://armadaaarsbydave.blogspot.com/2020/02/2020-vassal-world-cup-vs-brobafett.html Huge thanks to @BiggsIRL for hosting! I’m glad I was able to act as a last minute fill-in!
  8. I’ve played a good number of games with Romodi. I was initially thrilled with his ability, and in the first game or two I played he was absolutely fantastic. Since then, I’ve come to see him as a decent choice, on par with Screed or Motti but way below the efficacy of Jerjerrod or Sloane. He is situationally good but can really get you into a bind if you push too hard to make use of his ability. I’ve ended up self-ramming way more often with him (maybe that’s a player skill issue) and in Romodi v Romodi matches, I have found myself avoiding the ability entirely to preserve my own assets. My conclusion is that he is a great admiral to put in your fleet to preserve points and use situationally, but if you expect to get him to trigger consistently over a series of games, you are mistaken. Definitely not overpowered.
  9. I finally got around to doing a write-up for my three POD games with @Green Knight, @187-Leon, and @Green Squadron 3. Here is the link: https://armadaaarsbydave.blogspot.com/2020/01/2020-vassal-world-cup-pod-play-review.html
  10. Pod E @Green Squadron 3 vs CommanderDave He gave me first. I picked Advanced Gunnery. We called it at the end of round 4. He killed my Dictor with his Bail activation, but not before I was able to take down his Command Cruiser with the Dictor and Decimators. His objective ship was on its way down with no chance of killing Demo so we called it. Final score was 514-195 given the destruction of the objective ships. I believe that’s a 10-1 win for me. Big thanks Green Squadron for a good game!
  11. Unfortunately, I’ve got a woodworking project that’s taking up a lot of my free time right now and it’s extending out a bit longer than anticipated. I can’t commit to this one. Thanks so much for organizing it though, it would have been fun!
  12. Good game with Leon. The Fleet Ambush was risky for sure, but it let me get my Decimators in early to start their work. It doesn’t make much difference, but I actually lost 107 (Demo + Tel) for 293 MOV. Still 9-2.
  13. I’m in. I’ve yet to do either RitR or even the CC campaign, so this looks really good.
  14. I rarely run the SSD myself, but I’ve played against it often enough and I’d hate to have to try to predict where a JJ SSD would be at speed three. Especially if the SSD out-activates me.
  15. Nav Teams? Engine Techs would be taken to far greater effect.
