    Armada 2019 World Cup - Qualifiers

    Considering the fact that we are talking here about VASSAL, this has to be an amazing dog!

    Ridiculously in my favour biased dice gave me a 10-1 against @Irishmadcat. Felt like I had rigged the dice engine. Only one of my shots did not instantly kill an enemy ship (and that would have not been possible, considering that it was out of the rear of my dictor - which nevertheless transformed a vanilla CR90 to hull 2 and merely 2 shields left). Anyway, that means... I AM QUALIFIED!

    @clontroper5 vs Veggie ends in 170 to 273 (4-7) in my favour PLUS FLAGSHIP BUSTED! GEMME MY BOUNTY! ? Great game, greater opponent, btw!

    Darth Veggie is bounty hunting clontroper5 right at the moment!
  5. That does not seem to me to be very plausible. The lack of possible content hardly explains FFG's behavior. Considering postponement after postponement again and the terrible availability of older expansions, it is much more likely that they simply don't manage to get their production and supply chains in line to address the demand of old, new, and future waves. Whether this means that it is solved 2020, or hopefully 2019 already, or (let us pray that not) will never be solved and will lead to an early discontinuation of the game, is pure speculation, I fear ?

    I believe, it was you. It was a Vader fleet with a Cymoon, demo, at least one Arq and at least one Gozanti. No squads iirc. That was you, right? Because profundity gets a lot of beating it really helps if you can start with the drop from a very far distance. Have you tested your Raddus fleet against massive squad lists? I recognized that I really need either squads myself or my slicer tool flotillas (I have even two of them in my current list) to be able to stand against a heavy squad fleet.

    First, I would advise not to use Bail. Bail tends to backfire, if not used with an ET liberty. The reason is that after the Bail activation, your opponent has all his activations plus one more activation against your big ship to kill your large Bail ship. My double MC75 list was the following: Profound Aspirations (392/400) MC75 Ordnance Cruiser (100 + 59) + Admiral Raddus (26) + Major Derlin (7) + Ordnance Experts (4) + Electronic Countermeasures (7) + External Racks (3) + Assault Proton Torpedoes (5) + Profundity (7) MC75 Ordnance Cruiser (100 + 26) + Lando Calrissian (4) + Ordnance Experts (4) + Electronic Countermeasures (7) + Assault Proton Torpedoes (5) + External Racks (3) + Aspiration (3) CR90 Corvette A (44 + 9) + Turbolaser Reroute Circuits (7) + Jaina's Light (2) GR-75 Medium Transports (18 + 3) + Hondo Ohnaka (2) + Quantum Storm (1) Shara Bey (17) Tycho Celchu (16) Dangerous Territory Most Wanted Contested Outpost The idea is easily explained: Get insane Raddus-Drop range thanks to the Profundity drop. You can literally drop the Raddussed Aspiration across half the map because of the Profundity drop (which also moves Raddus and Derlin to the trc90 - yes, I think I am the only person who has ever used this ability of the profundity title). Next you activate the trc90 and fly it to safety circling the opponent and further harrassing him with trc. Finally he gets battered between the fire of Aspiration and Profundity. BTW Aspiration is a perfect title for a Raddussed ship, since you can move your shields more than ideally completelly compensating the lack of a second redirect. However, I have given up on the idea of playing this list competitively. It has two major drawbacks: 1. Profundity dies nearly all the time. It will get serious damage before the drop. Resulting in constantly dying somewhere after the drop. Allthough this is mitigated by the movement of Raddus and Derlin, it means, even that it is close to impossible to win big. 2. It is not very flexible and plays quite the same all the time. Sometimes you would love to have Profundity as the ship dropped, not Aspiration. But that is not possible, because Raddus is on it. A later version of this fleet I have played with HIECR90b as Profundity drop and ACM instead of APT, but it was even less flexible, hence if I play dual MC75 I go back to the fleet above. After @rasproteus destroyed the HIE+ACM fleet once even before the drops I gave up on the list and evolved it to my current Raddus fleet (the one I play in the VASSAL tournament). But that is no dual MC75 fleet anymore.

    2018 VASSAL Autumn Tourney - Round 4 Fight!

    The experiment what Avenger can do against Admonition has been successfully conducted. The answer is: It is difficult! Avenger can criple Admonition down to 1 hull, but has to fly off the table for doing so... ? But I am rushing things... @Order66 Beta vs. Darth Veggie has ended with 208 to 400 (MoV 192; 3-8) in my favour. Order 66 was first player and chose my targeting beacons. Mistakes were made on both sides. In round 2 the heavy gunning already started (with the death of my HIECR90b stupidly dropped by Profundity). Round 3 saw the end of Motti's ISD, Profundity and Quantum Storm. In round 5 the Raider 2 evaporated by an already on hull 1 Admonition onslaught. In round 6 the Gozanti was killed by my Raddusvette. Avenger could not stand all this bloodshed and finally flew off the map. Logfiles are here (there are two files due to a connection loss in between; and because we Germans couldn't behave, we always switched between languages in a most confusing way ?) For FARTing purposes: I have lost my HIECR90b, Quantum Storm and Profundity. My opponent was tabled.
  9. Unfortunately, although the general term "Sprache" is indeed feminin, the particular languages are neuter. And to make things even more difficult, the noun is differently built determining whether you want to use the definite article (which is nearly never the case outside an linguistic context). Hence "Spanisch" (neuter) is the name of the language, and in linguistic contexts it also can be "das Spanische" (also neuter). I know, it really is schrecklich.

    2018 VASSAL Autumn Tourney - Round 4 Fight!

    @Doppelganger vs me ends in a 8-3 (475 - 264 / MoV 211) in my favour. I was first player and we played his Sensor Net. This time no words about the match from me, because I am still crying like a baby due to my stupidly bad dice. However, as everybody knows, better than words from me is a logfile! But even if dice are not pleasant, Doppelganger is a pleasant opponent! Edit: For FART purposes: Doppelganger was tabled, I lost both CR90B and Quantum Storm.

    My MC75 is a consular ship! It never ever fired a shot.
