  1. @Green Knight I just wanted to say that I'm really enjoying your blog. I've finally had some free time to catch up on it. I love reading about different ideas for fleets and synergies between different ships & upgrades that I hadn't thought about yet. Nice job!

    Thrawn I guess I'll start

    Yup, I had no problem with it. It all made sense and seemed logical and legal to me....even though I lost the match. LOL

    Feedback on Ackbar fleet

    I thought about GT, but with throwing so many reds, I decided I should really have some way of making them count.

    Feedback on Ackbar fleet

    Yeah, I was thinking of doing that. I originally had Shara, but dropped her to make room for IO.
  5. I was playing around with some ideas I had after Wave 7 and was looking for feedback on this fleet. The idea is to make sure that the MC80 goes last so it has the best chance to proc Defiance. I was also torn between ECM and AP, but ECM seemed like a better choice to always ensure that the brace is available. On the AFMKII I was back and forth on IO and Lando, but felt that IO would be better to lock down or strip a brace. And I'm not sure how useful DCaps will be, but for 3 points it seemed worth it. Faction: Rebel Commander: Admiral Ackbar Assault: Advanced Gunnery Defense: Hyperspace Assault Navigation: Dangerous Territory MC80 Assault Cruiser (114) • Admiral Ackbar (38) • Strategic Adviser (4) • Engine Techs (8) • Early Warning System (7) • Electronic Countermeasures (7) • Leading Shots (4) • XI7 Turbolasers (6) • Defiance (5) = 193 Points Assault Frigate Mk2 B (72) • Intel Officer (7) • Caitken and Shollan (6) • Disposable Capacitors (3) • Electronic Countermeasures (7) • XI7 Turbolasers (6) = 101 Points GR-75 Medium Transports (18) • Leia Organa (3) • Comms Net (2) = 23 Points GR-75 Medium Transports (18) • Toryn Farr (7) • Bright Hope (2) = 27 Points Squadrons: • 4 x A-wing Squadron (44) = 44 Points Total Points: 388
  6. Yes, that drives me crazy also.
  7. For me it is dependent on the fleet that I'm building. There are times when I know the upgrade that I want and would like to view the list alphabetically and there are other times when I'm trying to find something to fit within a points constraint and would like to view by cost. I know that's probably not very helpful, but it would be nice if the sort was user-configurable on the fly. If it needs to be static, then I would vote for alphabetically. With regards to squads, for the most part I like to see them sorted alphabetically by type with generics and aces per type grouped together, e.g. A-Wing, Green Squad, Shara, Tycho, etc. I also just noticed this morning that Ryan Kingston's builder now lets you filter squads by ability.
  8. @Drasnighta Thanks. That's what I thought, but wanted to double check. :-)
  9. Since Ahsoka says "During the activation...", is it legal to use Raymus+Ahsoka to get 2 tokens on the Raymus ship? For example: Ship 1 with Raymus has a Nav dial, which becomes a dial+token because of Raymus. Then exhaust Ahsoka on ship 2 to exchange Ship 1's nav token to a CF token. Then turn nav dial into a token on Ship 1 for a total of nav & CF tokens. This seems like it should be illegal, but according to everything I could find, it is legal, so I just wanted to check.

    2 EWS tokens

    @Muelmuel I'm at work now, but I'm almost positive that I also received 2 tokens and 1 card in my Profundity pack because I remember thinking that it was unusual when I opened it.

    Armada Fleet Builder app for iOS

    @Darth Sanguis I had the same problem. Deleting the app and reinstalling appears to have fixed it for me so far, but it was frustrating losing all my fleets.
  12. Here is my fleet. My original build in our last battle did not have the Lancer. I was testing it, but did not get to use it as I had envisioned. The next iteration will be an A-Wing or Z95 depending on points. I also gave up a bid to swap Comms Net for Repair Crews and add Lando to the MC30c. Lando+Admo with Madine is a great combination for survivability. I was also pleasantly surprised at how well this fleet performed as 2nd player also. Name: Madine's Liberty BC Faction: Rebel Commander: General Madine Assault: Most Wanted Defense: Hyperspace Assault Navigation: Superior Positions MC80 Battle Cruiser (103) • General Madine (30) • Ray Antilles (7) • Gunnery Team (7) • Engine Techs (8) • Leading Shots (4) • H9 Turbolasers (8) • Quad Turbolaser Cannons (10) = 177 Points MC30c Torpedo Frigate (63) • Lando Carissian (4) • Ordnance Experts (4) • Assault Proton Torpedoes (5) • Admonition (8) = 84 Points CR90 Corvette A (44) • Jaina's Light (2) = 46 Points GR-75 Medium Transports (18) • Leia Organa (3) • Repair Crews (4) = 25 Points GR-75 Medium Transports (18) • Comms Net (2) = 20 Points Squadrons: • Shara Bey (17) • Tycho Celchu (16) • Lancer Pursuit Craft (15) = 48 Points Total Points: 400
  13. Good luck. I hope you enjoy yourself and find what you are looking for. We will still be here when you return.
  14. Ah, but did you solve the trolley problem?
  15. Ah, I see now! I had to roll some dice to run through some scenarios and fully understand all the interactions, but now I understand. Very cool. Thank you.
