  1. How might that work? I’m not familiar with those upgrades.
  2. I only have two Arq’s currently. I’ll keep that three Arq version in mind for future purchases.
  3. Is that a custom Taskforce objective or is it from a release?
  4. Incorporated the feedback. Will probably fly this next time. These changes will give me some new tactics to work on https://armada.ryankingston.com/fleet/56273/ Name: 2xArq Thrawn + ISD-II + Rogues v2 Faction: Imperial Commander: Grand Admiral Thrawn Assault: Close-Range Intel Scan Defense: Planetary Ion Cannon Navigation: Solar Corona Arquitens Light Cruiser (54) • Grand Admiral Thrawn (32) • Captain Needa (2) • Turbolaser Reroute Circuits (7) = 95 Points Arquitens Light Cruiser (54) • Turbolaser Reroute Circuits (7) = 61 Points Imperial II (120) • Skilled First Officer (1) • Gunnery Team (7) • Electronic Countermeasures (7) • Leading Shots (4) • Relentless (3) = 142 Points Squadrons: • Boba Fett (26) • Morna Kee (27) • Bossk (23) • VT-49 Decimator (22) = 98 Points Total Points: 396
  5. Great ideas to try! I’ve been playing against squadronless fleets lately, so Decimator is better than Bossk against ships, i think. But for potential scatter aces to jam up my rogues, I like the idea of Bossk a lot. I could trade leading shots in for SW7. That was fun to try, but didn’t bring a lot of hits to the table. I’ve tried Gunnery Teams and had mixed results. But I could give it another go. I’ve been using this fleet to help improve my deployment and navigation approaches. Regarding objectives: I take your point though I’ve got some leeway here. I play against a friend, and I know he’s bringing minimal squadrons. I’m playing off his “meta” and vice versa. So I knew that I wouldn’t get snookered by a 130 pt bomber fleet. I do normally bring Planetary Ion Cannons and Solar Corona. This fleet I wanted a point-generating objective I could potentially play to. And I’ve not really liked Solar Corona. But after this last game I think I see how I’ve been playing it poorly. Thanks for the ideas!
  6. This has been a fun fleet to play with, particularly to fly some Arquitens and Decimators. But I’m sure there are some interesting variations I haven’t thought of. Keeping with an ISD and two Arquitens, what might you change for different tactics or improve on this fleet’s inefficiencies? Thanks https://armada.ryankingston.com/fleet/52334/ Name: 2xArq Thrawn + ISD-II + Rogues Faction: Imperial Commander: Grand Admiral Thrawn Assault: Close-Range Intel Scan Defense: Fighter Ambush Navigation: Superior Positions Arquitens Light Cruiser (54) • Grand Admiral Thrawn (32) • Captain Needa (2) • Turbolaser Reroute Circuits (7) = 95 Points Arquitens Light Cruiser (54) • Turbolaser Reroute Circuits (7) = 61 Points Imperial II (120) • Skilled First Officer (1) • Electronic Countermeasures (7) • SW-7 Ion Batteries (5) • XI7 Turbolasers (6) • Relentless (3) = 142 Points Squadrons: • Boba Fett (26) • Morna Kee (27) • 2 x VT-49 Decimator (44) = 97 Points Total Points: 395
  7. Ok, yeah looks like they’re in rk armada fleet builder.
  8. I don’t care about the SSD. $200 expansion good for only one side is a non-starter. Hopefully the wiki has good images of the cards so I can proxy them. But I am excited about the surprise announcement of the two new ships! And the implication that they’re bringing new rules and mechanics to Armada: these feel like the big deal to me.
  9. 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.
  10. I guess. But I'm not "collecting". I'm buying a game to play. I don't need a "crowning piece". I want good, affordable expansions for both factions.
  11. This. I'm worried that it will be another two years for the next normal Armada expansion...making it four years without an actual Armada upgrade. There's no way I'm buying a $200 SSD expansion. And even if I did, what's my Rebel Scum gaming partner going to get? He's stuck back at Wave 7, and looking at a third year without expansions. The SSD for me is lousy for Armada. The game is expensive enough as is. Give me more, affordable upgrades. A $200 ship every couple years for one faction is not appealing.
  12. Thanks. It seems a simple thing, but we got into a discussion on in going into the game end. Good to get a little expansion on the matter.
  13. Does this squadron have line of sight to the front hull of the Corvette? Was having some disagreement over LOS rules for squadrons attacking ships. Does a squadron need to be at least partially within the arc of the hull it’s attacking? Or is squadron LOS measured from squadron center to target hull (checking for obstruction and crossing a hull zone line? https://imgur.com/a/1a7Kb4X
  14. Does Bomber Command Center stack with Colonel Jendon, if the attack is passed to a Bomber? (Can BCC be used twice on the same squadron, since it's two different attacks via jendon?)
  15. What's "MMJ"? I'm an imperial player, and I'm wondering what I'm missing out on.
