    Would this work?

    Well, it can. I have a similar list that worked really well against the fleet it was paired against, I I can also see quite a few situations where it would have been left fairly helpless. First my list: Snapping Turtle Author: Darth Sanguis Faction: Galactic Empire Points: 386/400 Commander: Admiral Screed Assault Objective: Most Wanted Defense Objective: Contested Outpost Navigation Objective: Dangerous Territory [ flagship ] Imperial Star Destroyer Kuat Refit (112 points) - Admiral Screed ( 26 points) - Avenger ( 5 points) - Strategic Adviser ( 4 points) - Fire-Control Team ( 2 points) - Electronic Countermeasures ( 7 points) - Heavy Ion Emplacements ( 9 points) - Assault Concussion Missiles ( 7 points) = 172 total ship cost Victory II-Class Star Destroyer (85 points) - Intel Officer ( 7 points) - Quad Battery Turrets ( 5 points) - NK-7 Ion Cannons ( 10 points) = 107 total ship cost Victory II-Class Star Destroyer (85 points) - Intel Officer ( 7 points) - Quad Battery Turrets ( 5 points) - NK-7 Ion Cannons ( 10 points) = 107 total ship cost = 0 total squadron cost Now, what it's good for and weak against: This list is excellent at sinking large and medium ships. Especially if you manage 1st player. It is however super susceptible to MSU fleets and bombers. It would also likely have trouble with Large +MSU fleets, which can get very tricky with their deployment/activation advantage. Personally, I had fun with mine. It chewed through 2 motti ISDs and 2 Motti VSDs, but they were pretty much bare bones.

    Let's talk SSD speculation!

    Based on this image by FFG I'm gonna weigh in and say I doubt we'll get much more than what's already been previewed. Personally, I'd love some new SSD specific objectives, but again, I doubt we're gonna see that here.

    What ship have you not used in a long time?

    Anecdotal as heck, but I actually find the AFKII to be particularly useful when running Sato or Akbar fleets. It's one of the only rebel platforms that can push mass squads and take the flight controllers upgrade. With toryn nearby you're turning those 3-5 squads into kill machines. I will say that I completely agree it's definitely costed out quite often due to the efficiency of the mc30. I'm finding that the game feels more balanced at 800 points too. Ships that are regularly avoided are an option with the extra points. Makes for an interesting game dynamic. I played a fleet last week with 3 mc30s, and the more I look back, the more I'm seeing the AFKII as a better option. Again, anecdotal, hardly relevant, but that's what I've seen.

    I mean, it's your unit, I'm just saying, that it's definite an auto include in a sloane fleet as is. lol 10/10 I would take this.

When that squadron activates it must attack the chosen target, if it cannot it suffers 1 damage. If you used instigate, at the end of your activation, push the slider back to unactivated.

    FFG ARMADA Article: Interview online!!!

    That's not to say it couldn't work for us. Even the late *** FAQs get us by, I'm just saying I don't expect FFG to carryout anything new related to Armada with a ton of effort. If nothing else, I hope FFG would learn to make the app offline capable with both cloud and hard storage that syncs when the device is connected to wifi... 'cause that's my biggest pet peev about the x-wing app.... I do all my list building for legion armada and x-wing on break at work. I don't have access to wifi there... Basically means I can't build x-wing lists.

    FFG ARMADA Article: Interview online!!!

    I suppose I'll chip in now. My only real concern about going to an app like X-wing has less to to with the subjects brought up by everyone else, and more to do with FFG's standard treatment of Armada. I feel like even if we got an app, the updates would not be timely, ever, the app quality would be poor (and likely require wifi), and the game would still have the "imperfections" it was designed to "fix".... I mean, I don't know how to code, but I know that typing up a paper with images and converting it to PDF only takes a few minutes and yet almost every FAQ we've had over the last few years has been delayed by months Somehow I don't think an app would be great for us , not because it would ruin the game balance or let them sell an incomplete product, but because we are the starving forgotten stepchild of FFG, I have no doubt the app would suffer from the same level of neglect as everything else Armada related...

    Cymoon vs. Kuat

    Both have their own functions. I'd use a kuat more often personally. (with the built in defensive slot it has an advantage in my book). I can think of 3 or 4 builds for the Kuat off hand. The Cymoon however always ends up being vader, tua, GTs, ecms, spinals, X-i7s and some title when I put it in a list. (If I want a long range gunner with no brace why wouldn't I use a kitten instead?).

    You're right though. lol

    Not yet... I shudder to think about it. lol

    SSD article up!

    I'm aware. I have skimmed the RRG at least once.... The point I'm trying to make is, with the new sector fleet rules, it can be an issue, especially at the maximum. I came close at 800 points, considering the events of the 4th round, had I rolled poorly it may have been an issue (which we'd have likely dealt with Dras' way). At 1200 it may not even be hard to do. I own 5 ISDs, that barely fills half of a 1200 point game... yet it's nearly enough to soak all the damage cards by itself, add motti or an SSD... All I'm saying is it CAN happen.

    SSD article up!

    Ships did die, which is why it wasn't a major issue. But the end of round 4 was basically 3 ISDs with 8-10 cards and interdictor with 8, and a bunch of small ships with 2-3 each. It was a mess. If he'd have had Motti we'd have run out likely. At 1200, I can't even imagine.

    SSD article up!

    Actually I'm a little concerned about this. I ran an 800 point game where my opponent ran out of damage cards. It is possible (especially in a 1v1 1200 point game ) to run out. I know it's unlikely, but I hope they release the damage deck or a damage deck expansion specifically for sector fleet games.

    The II also appears to have a blank slot. This is different from the pamphlet that released in December which I believe had those filled in: To me this means 1 of 2 things: 1.) the reason for the delay is related to balance and those slots have not been confirmed 100% 2.) The more likely, is that the marketing department doesn't have the most up to date info and used pictures of the unfinished cards.

    Ain't shook. I had my bomber fleet beaten by a squadron-less just last Friday. It's all about the superior fire power man! lol
