    Triangular reacted to BillHimclaw in Any Europeeps/Britpeeps get an SSD yet or a dispatch notice?   
    I called them on Monday, they said they had trouble with their international shipping due to the size of the boxes. Hours later I got my dispatch notice.
     
    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.)

    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.

    I'm just about to write an email and ask for material like icons and card images. I only don't know which department I should adress it to?

    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?

    Congrats on the place getters.
    1st Shane Fletcher, 27pts, 348MoV, 2x Gladiator (no demo title)
    2nd Christopher Nicol, 25pts, 283MoV, 2x Nebulon-B.

    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.

    I like the idea. Remindes me of "mines" in TIE Fighter CD Rom. For that I would make them 1 hull and 1 scatter. You need just 1 precise hit to get rid of them and you don't need any tokens to count their hull. I think they count as "squadrons"?
    Question is when do the Defense Satellites attack? At the begin of squadron phase, at the end or does the imperial player activate them like normal squadrons?

    If you decide to use his infiltration command card you put him on the table at the end of the setup, so after every enemy unit is allready placed on the field.
    Therefore his infiltration won't be like apearing inside the enemys deployment zone.
    Depending on the deployment he will most likely be placed just a bit ahead of the rest of the army.
    I think this is fine, since it looks more like a leader leading the attack than a solo guy flying right into the enemes lines.

    Triangular got a reaction from Norell in An "additional" Liberator theory   
    What we know so far from the new CR90 title card "Liberator" is the following text pieces:
    "You gain 1 additional (...) in your (upgrade bar)"
    "You cannot (...) if you have (...)."

    My first thought was the "additional" icon could be a Fleet Command icon, because the Liberator was successor of Phoenix Home. But today I took a look at the yet existing title card, that grants a Fleet Command:

    Chimaera grants a Fleet Command icon without "additional", because there is none at an ISD (and it's forbidden if you already have 1).
    And then I remembered the Phoenix Home title card:

    Phoenix Home grants an "additional" Officer icon, because there already is 1.
    For that I think, that the "additional" upgrade at "Liberator" must be: Officer, Support, Defensive Retrofit, Ion, or Laser. Most likely a second Officer slot.
    The second sentence at Liberator card: "You cannot (...) if you have (...)." resembles very much the second sentence of Chimaera card. "You cannot equip this card if you have a icon in your upgrade bar." This sentence would only make any sense, if it refers to a Laser or Ion Upgrade, because that's the only difference between A and B variants' upgrade bars. And for that it appears to be unlikely that it gains a second Laser or Ion, I would think.
    So, what's you guess? Does the Liberator grant a second Officer, Support, or Defensive upgrade slot for CR90 A or CR90 B? Or am I totally wrong?

    Not quite. I think @OgRib is quite right with his guess, that it will be a title for CR90B variant, which needs some love. But I don't think it will bring a second Ion slot. Could be an additional Officer or Support Team as well. Even a second Defensive Retrofit.  My guess is Officer slot, because it resembles Phoenix Home title. But a second Support Team would be great. You could equip the ship with Engine Techs AND Auxilliary Shield Team. But I don't believe in that.
    So I suggest it reads:
    You gain 1 additional Officer icon in your upgrade bar.  You cannot equip this card if you have a turbolaser icon in your upgrade bar.
