  1. I think there is another reason. George Lucas really like in the past to borrow many "visual" elements from WW2. So Disney took the same path. I think the Resistance B/SF-17 heavy bomer is suppose to be the new child born of the B-17 Flying Fortress So don't try to look too far why that bad concept

    People still playing?

    In my region (Montréal and Québec, Canada), there is still a community that playing in store tournement. We are doing one tomorow at the Zakeda, on the South-shore of Montréal, and we are supposed to be around 7 or 8 persons. There is some tournements on the North-shore of Montréal too, at the BD Cosmos store, that bring approximatively that same number of players. In the Québec region, there is a strong community that play even more game at the Imaginaire store. Yes, I would like to say that Armada is play by more people in more store but we have to don't forget that this game is not a casual game as X-Wing is. The audience is a little more "niche" because of the game length, the price tag, the complexity of the game and other reasons of this kind. This game is the best game that I have ever play and still alive even if we don't have the same level of publicity like other games (looking at you Legion and X-Wing). If FFG took a marketing decision to put emphasis on those two products don't means that other games like Armada are about to die.
  3. Tomorow all this sadness will end because we will have an article on that beauty... I hope
  4. FFG want us to beg for news Just when everybody was about to say Armada is dea... There's a new article!!!

    Eagerly Awaiting Next Necro'ed Gem of a Thread

    Company's don't like to loose money $$$$$$. If Armada was not a source of benefit for FFG, they could just close the line. No new product (like the SSD) or re-print!!! The fact that we have those is maybe a good sign that Armada is not in that bad position that some peoples think. Yes, Armada is maybe not a priority like some of their new products but the game still on

    Nicknames for the SSD

    SSD is just fine. But if you are really looking for a nickname, it could be The Arrow of Doom.

    What Ship Do You Want Most Of All?

    Dual faction!!!

    Would you move over to Armada 2.0?

    1.5 - digital app!!! That's all we need to keep the game in a good shape for a long time. The point cost is the only problem I can see to this wonderful game (ship, upgrades and squadron). The squadron game could be change at the same time just by adjusting their cost. Intel or all aces that make a "blob" around them should receive a point boost. The same is true for the fact that aces (because of their defence token) sould be less cheap in comparaison to generic.

    Squadron upgrades

    I think you miss some of what I said. I do like squadron... I really don't want something like Attack Wing. But the squadron game is now too strong for what that game is supposed to be. A fleet game where your ship are doing something good. You are talking with someone who really know well WW2. I do know that a grand majority of fleet combat loss a due to dive bomber or torpido, not direct hit by ship guns. But we are not playing a WW2 game like Axies and Allies naval miniatures. Could we make it more like "Star Wars". Yes in the movies, one squadron (a A-Wing) crash down a 19 km ship, a single shot of torpido blew up a Death Star but I think the majority of us are looking for the big ship, noy really the squadron. They are important but not supposed to be the center piece of this game. That's my point of view
