    Im loving that model. I think my only issue with it is its so, IMPERIAL GREY.
    It needs more color on it, really. And thats exactly what I am going to do.

    Looks like a new rules reference is up. A few new keywords from upcoming units! Effective 12/09/19.

    My wild guesses:
    Calculate The Odds, Counterpart, Inconspicuous & Secret Mission for R2D2 & C3P02. Maybe Distract?
    Makashi Mastery for Dooku?

    I actually love this ship. Could do with a different color scheme but the actual ship strikes me as heavily inspired by the Neb B, which is iconic. I feel like they nailed it.

    People always claiming the game is dead. 

    Huge ship release today, biggest model FFG has made to date. A campaign coming out a few weeks. 2 brand new ships by the end of Q4. Clone Wars by Q4 2020... but it's "dead"

    When I think about how Armada's release schedule was only slowed because of Legion and X-wing 2.0 in the first place, hearing the Legion folks Boohoo about a slow release really just pisses me off. 

    I love the new ships. The fact that FFG got the right to design (or at the very least be the first to release the design) of the StarHawk is amazing. The new imperial ship is hella interesting too.

    I agree.   I'm all for a slower release schedule personally..  allows me to hunt for change to supplement my gaming budget. 😜
    I’m really curious as to how much a closer relationship FFG is getting with Disney.  This could bode well for the future if the collaboration is there.  
    I don't know if you follow the Rise of Skywalker rumours, but that imperial ship could give credence to them.

    Armada also has the first visual appearance of a canon Starship - the Starhawk.   Seems something strange to do for a “dead” game.

    Huh? Go visit the Armada forum and head to a big Armada event and tell me Armada never caught on. Maybe in your area it's not popilar, but in mine, and many places I've visited, it's has a lot of players.
    Armada is also getting Clone Wars, so not sure what you mean. Can't agree with anything you posted

    Legion gets multiple units / month, what more do you want? Armada hasn't had a release in 1.5 years. Legion releases are a virtual flood!!!
  14. Confused
    Darth Sanguis reacted to R3dReVenge in FFG Live news   
    FFG needs to fire someone. The SW legion release schedule has been a complete mess....
    The main problem with this release schedule is people will lose interest and end up not spending money that they otherwise would have. I'm the perfect example of this. I stuck around for a few months when legion first came out. I ended up getting fed up with lack of content and chose to spend my free money elsewhere.
    1 year later and nothing has changed. Same nonsense again. 
    Maybe, I'm just used to Games workshop release schedule where we get a whole codex filled with units to play with.
     
    Edit:
    Also, whats the deal with not releasing any big content in December again? This seems like a major miss. I wonder who's idea it was to not release any new content during Christmas and the holidays. Ok FFG, I won't ask my wife to pick me up the heavies for Christmas if you insist.....

    Not the sort of ship I envisioned when I heard the name ‘starhawk’. 
    But then, ‘overweight Neb-b’ has less of a ring to it I guess.

    Darth Sanguis reacted to Mad Cat in Onager's and Starhawk's Unusual Target Points   
    I hope the borders of the narrow green front arc on the Onager don't block being shot at. If they did there is a position off the starboad bow (about the Onager's 2 o'clock) where you couldn't shoot it.
    I wonder if an Onager can fire out the narrow green arc with  3Red 2Blue 2Black and also fire out the wider front arc with 2 Red 2Blue 1Black. Could you do this to seperate targets or even if double arced to the same poor ship. 
    On a more general note, in order not to make any existing large ships obsolete, I hope both these ships move and turn like a VSD shaped brick.

    Yeah, I've been feeling this hard for the past year. 

    For Legion things aren't so bad. It seems like there's something new for Legion every month. I haven't even been able to use all the new units I've bought. So I don't mind waiting. (though I have a friend going so I could ask them).

    For me, I've had a slow growing but constant hatred over their handling of Armada. It was bad enough when we got bumped to back burner because of X-wing 2.0 and Legion, having no releases for over a year. Having the SSD bumped 6-8 months back sucked too. It was their handling of Armada reprints, however, (which caused essential expansions that MSRP at $20 to hit ebay at $80-$120 for nearly 6 months) that caused me so much annoyance. We've had a lot of growth in our Armada group over the last year, if FFG's neglect just effected the existing players it wouldn't be so bad, but it really screwed all the newbies over. 

    I've been pretty livid with their policy decisions. 

    Also, I'd be careful how far you go expressing this sentiment. I've gotten a number of warning points for being too "colorful" in my opinion of FFG right now.

    Time is precious for me and I'm also concerned that the extra time it takes to build them will make my queue endless instead of managable.
    Thankfully, contrast paints helped reduce my paint times. Only time will tell. I've had a Grievous and some droids in hand and the new plastic is truely awesome.

    The only way I see it "shifting the game" will be in the first few months it's out. I foresee a lot of double accuracy proc in our local meta. FFG really curb-stomped it's teeth out at 400 points with the ruling on Tua and the "crippled" effect. 

    To be honest, I don't think it has a whole lot of bite in <1200 point sector fleets either... I have a match lined up for Friday at 800 points and I can't justify running the executor versions at all... I'd rather have the 3 ISDs... or 6 kittens... Maybe at 1200 it'll shine....

    I'm mad hyped for it, but I don't expect to be good in any way.

    Darth Sanguis reacted to Drasnighta in Is SSD a turning point for Armada?   
    Its surprisingly tanky - especially over the course of a game, where if you're able to funnel and pin your enemy in place, it doesn't drop out in Firepower like ISDs taking losses are.  That's its main strength.

    Which is actually one of the meta pivot points we'll see...  The Domination of 2-Ship is somewhat threatened by it in some instances, because it *is* tanky enough out outfight most things, and has the Upgrade and Antisquad power to put the hate on them over multiple turns...  The Single-Hammer-Smash lists can't muster the firepower to get it all done quick enough, and it repairs quickly.
