    JJ48 got a reaction from FTS Gecko in Andrasta Day   
    I just found out that the YT-1300 Corellian Freighter Owner's Workshop Manual, which is canon reference material, includes a section on the YT-2000 and other YT-series ships.
    https://www.zinnfigur.com/en/Books-Media/Books/Secret-Weapons/Wyndham-Ryder-Reiff-Chris-Trevas-Chris-Corellian-Freighter-YT-1300-Including-Millenium-Falcon-all-variants-Owner-s-Workshop-Manual.html
    (Table of Contents image, top left)
    Does anyone have this book who could confirm what the new canon can offer us on this ship?  The fact that it's canon now hopefully means that FFG will have more reason to consider it in the future!  (Though admittedly, the game doesn't necessarily need more Large-base turret ships.)

    JJ48 got a reaction from Shadrack in Naming Convention on the LCG vs CCG   
    Yeah, followers often didn't make sense in the CCG.  I mean honestly; heavy cavalry, a bunch of ashigaru, and a naga, all following a boar?  Ludicrous!  As to followers and characters having almost identical names, that would be almost as confusing as having, say, a single character with multiple experience levels (what a ridiculous idea)!  However, since we've seen no indication of such yet, it sounds more like you're just hating on the game a straw man just for the sake of hating.
    As to your point of deckbuilding, I'm sure your decks were always perfectly tuned in some way that removed any negative effect of chance whatsoever.  The rest of us, however, occasionally had games where the opponent just got all the right cards at the right times and we got all the wrong cards at the wrong times.  Yes, it was part of the game, but that didn't make it any less frustrating.  Not to mention, even when Uniques aren't more powerful, they generally have some pretty fun abilities, so anything to make getting them slightly more consistent is good in my book.
    When playing  the game with the cards in front of you?  Not a lot.
    When having a conversation about the cards without them sitting in front of you?  Quite a few.
    ("So, what do you think of that one Crane card?"  "Which one?"  "You know, the one with the picture of the guy in blue?")

    As an old CCG player, I agree!  I like that there are now generics, rather than having three Tsuruchi Rins all fighting side-by-side.
    As an old player of many other card games (with rules of uniqueness similar to the LCG's), this doesn't really bother me.  To me, limiting your deck to only one of a character didn't set the game apart so much as it just made it very frustrating when your opponent was able to get out four of their powerful Uniques and none of yours even showed up.
    You forgot to begin your post with "As an old CCG player..."

    So, the Empire's Lambda-cdm model is finite, though perhaps the First Order's Upsilon-cdm model is infinite?

    This list is only temporary until @Maffster is able to update his list, found  Here.  I'm only making this because I can't update his post, and he has been out since Nov 2018.  He and I have slight disagreements about when certain stories fall (specifically, Tiger Stalks his Prey). This mostly focuses on Order of Release for all the new stuff, rather than trying to determine when, specifically, events occur in the timeline. 
    If you want to know when events occur relative to each other in time, you can find it here, at my New 5r Timeline.

    I'm skeptical.  Yes, they're larger than any Large ships we currently have, but they're much, much smaller than the one Huge ship.  Even with a sliding scale, I think they'd probably look better Large.  Personally, I hope FFG allows the SSD to just stay a unique oddity.

    I'm really excited for Armada to expand. TBH, I'm not a huge CW nerd as I am for OT Star Wars, likely because a lot of the games and media I consumed as a kid were always OT related - the video games, the books, the LEGO...
     
    anyway, CW will put on the table a lot more variety and match-ups that will play out in ways I can only imagine right now. I'm not bored with the current state of Armada, but I do have my preferred play styles and favorites for Rebels and Imps, and to learn how to use and adapt my style/favs is probably what I am most looking forward to.

    Its odd they specifically call out the fact that its the 3 properties by specific number rather then just mentioning it as including those universes.  Makes me think L5R isn't being included. 
    Could have something to do with terms of the deal when they bought the games that they have the rights to use come older artwork themselves but not license it out to third parties.

    Results would beg to differ.  Lion have a 2 cost character that stands for every glory count and run Sharpens for political pump so are happy to run 3 Censures in most decks.  And you taking 2 turns to bank fate for that double fires turn means they have a tower that's running rampant in 4 conflicts in that time.

    Don't be too quick in dismissing wooden boats!  They could withstand cannon reasonably well (e.g. USS Constitution), and even when a cannonball gets through, it's unlikely to sink the ship unless it's below the waterline or it sets off the powder.
    On a different note, since Squadrons wouldn't make much sense in the age of sail, how about a boarding mechanism?

    Make them seagulls and add a “poked knees” crit to the deck.
    On a more serious note, what if wind adds a non-optional yaw click in a given direction, and you can compensate for it with native yaw and command dials?

    Also if hes new you can just tellmhim there are some banned cards but not to worry about it and just play with everything and then incorportae the banned list. **** we do that even for "normal" stuff with new players here and teach a simplified way of the game. First without roles and, if the person is too new or it might bw too much, even without ring wffects ubtil they grasp the basics

    It's two cards from the Core Set! Less than 1% of the total.
    If it was 10% of the cards that were banned, I could see someone having an issue buying in.

    And a new player should be able to understand the benefits, so long as they get a reasonable explanation.
    "This one card, it breaks the economy of the game."
    "This other one stops you playing cards."

    Because that's not good enough to keep them from negatively impacting the game.
    Look at Charge and how it effects that game.  For Greater Glory wasn't technically banned, but because of Charge and it being on the restricted list it effectively was.
