    Vassal question

    Hi guys and gals . Have played some TTS, but thought I would try vassal, have been watching Loi Pocknell on his streams, but was wondering how easy is it to get into, and find opponents, that do not mind you being new? I know the game, just not so much on vassal. Cheers
  4. Thx for the many replies, some really good diagrams put up, and hopefully can get some games in on the net against them ,as we have 0 local players playing them. Thx again guys
  5. Hi there, was at a Hyperspace event yesterday in Denmark, was a small event, but everyone had fun, man different lists there, but 2 CIS swarms, one with 7 ships, and one with 8 ships. Spoiler they both made it to the final table, the 8 ship list winning. All good so far, but we were talking about the limit to 8 ships, and if it is a problem. Reason being, if a 8 ship swarm, wants to take a couple of turns, or three moving around its own board edge, then starts to turn slowly in, having 8 ships to move, then barrel roll every turn, they eat up so much time, so when you finally get an engage, there are very few engagement turns, that the swarm can very easily et the upper hand, and then use more time thinking about moves, then uses time bumping stuff, that it is almost impossible to come back from. Anyone else seeing this, or is it just me?? It seems that a ship that is 19 points, that can barrel roll, link into a calculate action, and use oter friends calculate, seems just a little too good, if not way too good. Also with the energy shells , how many other list can have that amount of red dice is one turn 😞 I am not sure what the answer is to this, or even if there is one, they seem a very hard list to approach, one bad engage, and that is it. So what do you do against swarms in your areas? Are many people playing them, do you feel they are OTT? Or not? I ran a 3 Jedi list, with regen on 2 of my ships, which I know can also be seen as a problem, but am more than expecting and hoping that R2 goes up in price in January. I went 4-0 in swiss, and yes you guessed it, met the 7 ships swarm in the top cut, and one bad engage, and that was it 😞 But I am not here to moan about it, (maybe a little) but would like to hear your thoughts about the CIS swarms, and what you do to combat them. cheers
  6. Thx for the link, will give that a good read thru, but you feel al ist can run thru like 10 Thraawn bombers to get at the 2 ships and survive?
  7. Geek 32628232 As for Geek 19 blog, is there a link to it anywhere?
  8. 32628232 Thx for the insight, look forwards to reading your report when you get a chance to make it, hope you link to it here 🙂
  9. Congrats on the win, sounds like it all went to plan for you, Question, did ou play against many lists with full squadrons? And what is your plan against these kind of builds, I tried a Raddus list this weekend, with no squadrons, and went 1-3, met many squadrons, and was wondering what you do to counter this? Thx
  10. Thx for the feedback guys, will look into reiewing the list 🙂
  11. Have played a good few games, so have the basics under my belt, and have always loaned, borrowed or stole a list, Have been playing Rebels which I do prefer, but thought I would try my hand at an Empire list. Is this any good, or even just a little close to it? I can see it will have problems against squadrons, but need to start somewhere. Is it a bad move to make a list without squadrons? How bad a loss would I take against a Sloane list? What should I be looking for when making lists? I like the Corvettes, with TRC and Engine Techs, so thought the Arquitan might be good, but looks like it will take some getting used to moving them. The Gladiator, have I put too many points into it? Also how would this do against the new shiney stuff that is a SSD? Hope to get some feedback.

  12. Would be nice a new player to Armada, am enjoying it very much, but after Euros, would you be so kind as to share a little insight to your list building. Would be nice to know your thought process. Thx
  13. Funnily enough, have been playing around with the builder today, and made exactly the same list
  14. Apart from 2 Agility is really harsh for them, played two games last night versus Rebele beef, lost both pretty heavily, I ran Ani, Mace and Wolfe, lost both 😞
