  1. Hey All, our latest episode has dropped and we discuss our regional experiences plus our thoughts on the new cards that were spoiled. We also are going to focus on Armada and Legion solely in the future and will be adding a fleet construction and tactics section to the podcast. Thanks all http://www.thearmchairadventurers.com/thearmchairadmirals/2017/12/7/armchair-admirals-27-regional-firepower-t8p5k
  2. What type of material is that made out of? Is it slippery?
  3. Of course not but it is an option that you can pick though, the same as an MC80. What percent of interdictors are you seeing on the competitive scene? If your pelta is rushing to the front to face an ISD instead of being the support ship in issuing fleet commands from the rear, then you might want to rethink tactics as well. @Englishpete has it right, the real threat is to ships that shoot straight on, most namely a VSD.
  4. Since you are moving the goal posts, there are no rebel speed 2 ships that can't take ET. So my argument of smart set up and positioning is valid. The only Empire ship that is speed two that can't have ETs is the VSD. So I take it your arguing that an ISD can catch up and kill a VSD? It is the only speed 2 ship out there currently that doesn't have ET availability. So the poor VSD is getting caught and shot by the might Bt Avenger, it has 8 hull and decent shields and can withstand an attack from it.
  5. My MC80H disagrees with you. I faced an BT Avenger list this last weekend ran by a very skilled opponent and I managed to keep my mc80H out of range 1 and for the most part only in long range of the ISD. Set up is key when facing a BT Avenger as well as using navigate and engine techs to create space.

  8. I’m excited to see some info come in about lists from tomorrow’s regionals. Should be fun to see what everyone is bringing to this season and see what unique lists do well.
  9. Vergilus you are our only hope.
  10. Well, we will at least have some community sponsored news here after this weekend when we learn what is in the kits. Regional season is upon us and silence has been our gift from FFG. I'm traveling 3 hours one way on Dec 2nd to play games and hope there is a kit. Any regional store want to share whats in the kit? Links on page 5
  11. That's what happens sometimes. FFG isn't always on the ball on updating their info. Right now I think the meta is in a good place in terms of what I see on the table.
  12. Just wanted to let everyone know that the Armchair Admirals podcast does a From the Bunker segment where we talk and speculate Star Wars Legion. Our latest episode we talk about upgrade cards for Rebel Troopers and Stormtroopers, and also discuss other possible factions in the game. The first half of the episode we talk about our usual State of the Armada. http://www.thearmchairadventurers.com/thearmchairadmirals/2017/10/12/armchair-admirals-episode-23-the-gungan-in-the-room-rwphy
  13. Check out the latest offering of the Armchair Admirals. Thanks http://www.thearmchairadventurers.com/thearmchairadmirals/2017/10/12/armchair-admirals-episode-23-the-gungan-in-the-room-rwphy
  14. Greetings All, In our latest episode we discuss our recent store championship games and run though the lists from US Nationals. We also touch on Legion and more this episode. Thanks. http://www.thearmchairadventurers.com/thearmchairadmirals/2017/9/14/armchair-admirals-episode-21-silence-is-golden-tfytm
  15. Here you go with some basic info and finishing order. Top 4 were: - Jeff Berling with his list from Worlds: Loaded MC80 with 4 flotillas, dominating by being second player and crushing it on objectives. - Double ISD with squadrons. ISD's had Flight Controllers and Boosted Comms to make sure their squadrons did WORK. - Sloane with a Glad+Vic+3Gozantis and Squadron Aces. Winning on positioning and alpha strike. - Sloane Aces with Boarding Avenger. Knocking out those tokens and punching people in the face. Jeff and his MC80 won the day!
