    This!

    Every time I played the SSD in the local gaming den, at least one guy asks me to teach him how to play. In the end all my afternoons turned into Armada courses...

    The SSD really looks cool. And it really feels different when playing. It feels big and mighty, stubborn and awkward.
    Is it more CR90 killing than a double ISD-list? No. Is it the best ship to win tournaments? No.
    Is it fun to play or watch when played? Absolutely!

    Every time we have had one on a table at a Store we have had other folks come up and ask if they could take a picture of it.  Several say with the SSD and all the new news they might have to try out Armada.  It's definitely good for the game.

    Triangular reacted to Do I need a Username in Steel Command - A Most August Moment   
    the FAQ exists because without it Thrawn could not be used for a token.  It does not change that Thrawn does not make the ship reveal that command dial, it gains it.  Thrawn does not give the SSD a token.
    Re: The timing
    1. the Ship Reveals a command dial
    2. It then Gains that command dial
    3. At this point, before anything else, it may discard that dial to gain a matching command token.
    SSD triggers at 1.  Thrawn is at 2.  Tokens are at 3.

    We got an official answer from Asmodee Germany Organized Play: the SSD will be legal at the German Nationals in 11 days.
    So I guess this will be the first major tournament with SSDs?

    It has already left UK. Its shadow looms over France no, I guess...

    Triangular got a reaction from Bertie Wooster in • Harrow and the fleet command   
    I layed a "Support Team" icon over the circle in the image and it fits perferctly to the silhuette. I'm 99% sure the Harrow title card wil give a Support Team slot for 3 points. (I hope it's not 13.)

    Triangular got a reaction from The Jabbawookie in • Harrow and the fleet command   
    There are plenty of words at existing cards that end with a "l": small, hull, admiral, attack pool, additional, command dial, roll/reroll, equal, ... There is no card yet with an "!" in the card text. And I don't remember an upgrade card referring to another upgrade card's name. The exclamation mark is unlikely.
    At the moment we know near to nothing about the card text. If the first line ends with a circle (what we only guess) and with an "r." Then it resembles the layout of Minister Tua card.
    The rest is wishful thinking.

    Triangular reacted to WigTii in SSD Practical Questions   
    FFG Live in early April featured the SSD, and they showed the Ship Sheets next to some upgrade grade cards.  Through some creative measurements and comparisons, I came to estimate the Ship Sheet around 4x5 inches in size.  The best I found in April as a protective sleeve for a card that large was a 4x6 inch photo sleeve, but recently my FLGS began carrying a sleeve which might be about the right size for the sheet.   I'll test this theory when my SSD arrives, and if the sleeves work, I'll share the brand name with everyone here.

    You don't look up stuff at wikipedia? That's not "official", but a very good way to start a research, isn't it?
    All entries in the Armada wiki are direct quotations of rulebooks or FAQ. If you find something here, you know what you have to look for. And if you're smart you just rely on the info as long as nobody doubts it.
    A master rulebook would be fine. But as it is we have to work with the things we got.
    (Another way would be that FFG pays me for my work at the wiki, what would make if official, I guess. 😄)

    In my eyes a wiki is the better way to organise the knowledge for a miniatures game.
    Let's talk about Legion. (I don't know X-wing.) It's a game that has got nearly two new units a month and with every new unit a whole new set of keywords and rules. It has a "living" rulebook. That means they don't print the RRG, but let you download it. "Living" means they made 4-5 versions since February 2018; roundabout 1 update every 4 months. Still the rulebook is always way behind the new stuff. Even after the release of units there often is no official wording for new rules and keywords.
    And even if the rules are up to date, to look things up in the pdf is clumsy. Text is in 2 columns, so you have to go up and down, when reading a page. Searching is a mess (and no auto-conclude). Links are only at the end of an entry or at the end of the pdf. New rules are in another color, which is fine, when it comes out, but not so much useful after 3 month using it. Searching is horrible. Entries are often awfully redundant.
    A solid structured wiki is easier to use. You have a really good possibility to search for cards or rules. Links are in the text, so you can just click at something you want to know more about. Every card or rule or expansion is categorized, so you can get an overview over the according items quite easily. Searching is easy, you see suggestions after typing three letters.
    I don't know why anyone in the 21st century would prefer a dpf over a wiki?

    The fan-made armada wiki is a fantastic resource. But the quality of its graphics is scattershot, not infrequently using whatever random, low-res sneak pic somewhat grabbed from a video preview stream. If FFG is going to abdicate their responsibility to fans, it would be great if they provided high-quality graphics and reference material to the fans to use.
