    mathay86 got a reaction from mcworrell in Would you say we have a plethora of new content coming?   
    To comment on the production concerns, we now know of two games that are done for FFG...both Imperial Assault and Runewars have gone the way of the dinosaurs.  From the outside looking in, it would appear to me FFG was taking a serious inventory of their game lineup and armada may have been something they were considering chopping...clearly we survived and in a big way.  We may have still seen some modest support with campaign boxes and the like, but honestly I think they are running out of material for GCW era and they were discussing “do we continue into another era with the other games or do we let armada stay a GCW game and cease production of new ships”.  I wouldn’t be shocked if Disney helped this decision along considering the massive popularity of their cartoon work in the Star Wars realm and the return of the clone wars cartoon.  These of course are totally my assumptions and based in 0 discernible fact.
    That said, as someone who loves this game and the tactical depth it plays at, I honestly couldn’t be more excited.  There are always complaints about game length and squadron play, but ultimately to cut any of those layers of depth out would change the game into something I just wouldn’t love as much. This is space chess, on crack, riding a Pegasus, with a laser cannon in one arm and a princess in the other, all in a universe filled with good and evil space wizards determined to destroy each other....and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
    The new factions could be setup to give us the ability for some of the materials to crossover(pelta, arquitens, Vic), the 2 new GCW ships could also be crossover candidates and really quickly we could be looking at 2 new viable factions in competitive play when you add a core and a wave of expansions that includes a fighter pack per side.  I say all this to say I think our game is in a great place and I’m equal parts excited for all of it. Parity may take a bit of time, but there is going to be so many new ways to play that I can see myself very satisfied for a very long while.

    Honestly the hold up for Armada getting a clone wars announcement may have been addressing some of these concerns people are mentioning.  They did say during the Q&A that the Republic and Separatists will be new factions which implies to me they will be standalone, I would not be  shocked to see some upgrades that run across all 4 factions(the same way we currently have them across 2), but not sure about cross faction ships.  I’m more interested to see just how much stuff they may have prepared to release in this first year for clone wars.  For the new factions to be viable they will need a pretty quick influx of materials so fingers crossed 2020 may be the biggest release window of armada ever, but most likely at least as big as its first year...as a fan of the game I couldn’t be happier!

    I can totally understand the concerns about balancing an SSD in this game.  That doesn't mean I necessarily believe it impossible, just unlikely from the perspective we currently have for points.  I still believe it's coming, but find myself leaning more in the direction of it being a campaign box style release.  I have to agree with Admiral Calkins, the beast of choice for "something big" will almost certainly be the Executor before it's likely to be anything else.  I do agree with Triangular that Imperials could really stand to have a low points small based ship to create a little more points parity between imperial and rebel lists, it's no secret or surprise that the tournament scene seems to be very Rebel heavy at the top.

    This is kinda what I was suspecting on the MS-1 the question just came up and I thought I would see what everyone else was thinking on it.  How about the Suppressor title?

    You are perfectly welcome to exhaust a commander, or XI7, or whatever.
    Unless the card requires exhausting, or being readied to work it won't actually do anything.
