  1. As a Rebel player, I also have concerns about 1200 points. Maybe even 800. It's not every ship, but there are enough Rebel ships that want to be going sideways that I'm worried about constant collisions without more space to be able to move in.

    Always with the negative waves, Moriarty

    This is a remarkably bad take. Name any other current game - even one - that stays relevant with less than one release per year and so little community engagement that there might as well be none.

    Hasn't the info drought gone on long enough, FFG?

    No, I want there to BE news. Maybe they could make some kind of effort to develop product. Or, barring that, provide any sort of content at all - like a Scenario pack.

    That was six months ago. The incompetence is staggering.

    How Far Do You Travel for Tournaments?

    I would have driven 5-6 hours this year, but the two tournaments in range were on exactly the wrong weekends.

    You are being *incredibly* polite here.

    MOTF Batrep 31

    If I'm remembering the game correctly, he was double arc-ing the ISD or other ships with his, so I'm not sure how many flak shots he would have had.

    Assault pelta: how to use

    I use the Assault Pelta in a fleet with 4 Scout HHs, Rieekan and Rogues. It's there for Intensify Firepower, really, but if it manages to get close enough to fire its External Racks it can really do some damage.

    Regionals Dates and Locations

    I think the point is that why isn't it their purview? The current method could scarcely be less well-organized. 1) Hire a community organizer. 2) That organizer contacts all distributors that have run events in the past, or some that may be interested in running them in the future. 3) The organizer works with stores to schedule dates, and ensure that the appropriate prize packages are sent to them. 3) Next, they post the information on when/where in three places: Somewhere in the forums or on the main Armada page, on Twitter and in each region's appropriate Facebook page. 4) Profit Instead of this, we have the current system where no one knows anything and we have to scratch and hunt for any hint of events being held. This is how you schedule tournament seasons when you couldn't possibly care less what the attendance or visibility is. Absolutely insane. I'm so tired of it being assumed that the players are going to do all of the heavy lifting to make FFG's game succeed.

    That's good! I guess I'm looking from my perspective as a guy who already owns at LEAST two of every product available.

    I think the real question is if anyone is buying product during these tournaments? A profit of $20-30 is not a good reason for a game store to give up their whole game room for a day.

    There will likely be more, but there seem to be large swathes of the country that will be left without, largely due to FFG's largely incompetent management of this game.

    These same stores may have come to the decision that no more product is coming out for the game. It doesn't make a bunch of sense to host large tournaments for games that are (apparently) no longer supported with new product. Total Escape Games, the Denver store that had the Regional last year, barely has any Armada product. The items that players want are permanently out of print, nothing except the Super Star Destroyer has been announced, and the last actual release of new product was in February. Listen, I know that we are 'supposed' to stay positive, but it's really not that difficult to figure out why so many stores no longer run events. How many other legacy games do stores typically schedule events for?

    Every year, I'm surprised that FFG acts like this is the very first time they've ever scheduled a Regionals season. Maybe someday I'll stop being surprised.

    Other Tatooine (ND, SD, EastMT, SE SK, SW MB)

    I'm in. BUT (and I know you have limited control of this) - there really needs to be a good expected turnout for this for me to make it. It's a six hour drive from Denver, so I'll need two nights in a hotel and I'll be super sad if we end up with four/five people. I'll broadcast this in the Denver Star Wars gaming Facebook page and see if we can't get some more interested people!
