    Battlefleet 01 Studios reacted to BiggsIRL in Solo - An Underappreciated Gem   
    Since we are celebrating 40 years of Empire Strikes Back, let's take a minute as well to appreciate the backstory to what set up Han as the "roll into a banquet, see Darth Vader, and shoot him immediately without thinking" rogue that we all know and love.  That being, Solo, A Star Wars Story.
    This is the Solo Appreciation Station, a place where we can discuss what ships / squadrons we would like to see included in the game.  Where we can discuss the cool things we got to see in that movie.  And where we can talk about how underappreciated the movie actually was, after the perhaps overdone reaction to of The Last Jedi.
     
    To start, Han shooting Beck first at the end, giving us actual character building in a prequel where we knew what the basic outcome had to be in advance (Han and Chewie are okay, and wind up with the Falcon) was probably part.  Going from a cocky idealist to a streetwise rogue, where we can see how he will eventually have his heart of gold melted by a beautiful princess years in the future.

    Battlefleet 01 Studios reacted to Reavern in GenCon 2020 Cancelled -- When will Clone Wars Armada be revealed now?   
    Funny, that was my sarcastic point that I made in another thread.
    Basically, everyone was saying that FFG won't reveal Clone Wars Armada until GenCon 2020 because they'll get maximum exposure in the world of board games. I said that if GenCon was cancelled this year (which I correctly predicted), and it's true that GenCon is such a big deal, then logically FFG should withhold the Clone Wars Armada reveal until GenCon 2021.
    Now FFG is in the exact position: GenCon 2020 is cancelled and they no longer have an international event that can reveal Clone Wars Armada at, which means they now need to make other arrangements.
    I fail to see the point in waiting.
    I mean, I'm not saying that FFG should react hastily and reveal CWA tomorrow. But they shouldn't wait until some arbitrary week in August just because that's when GenCon was originally scheduled. FFG should get to work on producing some sort of major Livestream event to reveal Clone Wars, and do it sooner rather than later, like June.
    June should be big for FFG because that's when many of the delayed Legion and X-Wing expansions are re-scheduled for release. FFG will hopefully be hosting previews and livestream play-thrus for the new expansions, like they've done in the past. That will draw players' attention back to FFG's Star Wars games. So after the Legion and X-Wing expansions are released on or around June 5th, the next week or two would be the perfect time for FFG to have a Clone Wars Armada reveal livestream.

    I also enjoy playing Armada matches with massive fleets. My Imperial fleet pictured below is over 1700 points, and its grown since March 2019 when this photo was taken:

    I plan to have massive fleet battles with Clone Wars ships too. If those Clone Wars ships don't come with command dials, I have at least 50 spares that I can use for those ships.
    For Armada veterans, we already have all the commands dials that we need because they came in the ship that we've bought. If it's true that FFG is omitting command dials in the future, it will only effect new Armada players, because we veterans can use the command dials from our Imperial/Rebel ships for the Republic/CIS ships that might not come with dials.
    If a new Armada player dives deep and buys a 1500+ point Republic or CIS fleet, then perhaps they will need to buy multiple Dial Packs to get all the dials they'll need. TS for them. If you're late to the party, it's your own fault you missed out on something.
    If FFG does omit command dials from new ship expansions, I think it's a smart business decision for them and I support it because it will reduce waste and make Armada more profitable for FFG, which hopefully means more product Waves and Armada stays alive for years to come.

    The dials being omitted makes as much sense as any other theory going so far. However... in my area, we have seen 4-6 games a year where the point totals per side are in excess of 5000. Yes the games literally take a weekend to play but d***, they look cool. 4 ISDs abreast with numerous other ships supporting against a conga line of 6 MC80Hs cutting across the imp line while swarms of CR90s flank. And that is just part of the action. You need all of those silly extra dials to field your entire collection  against multiple opponents doing the same thing. Maybe I am odd, but I want everything needed to field any and all of my spaceships when and if the time comes.

    Suddenly, a violent explosion rocks the base.  Klaxons blare.  Troopers in armor rush to the medbay, while troopers in fatigues rush to the barracks to suit up.
    The bombing has scrapped the medical wing; the sole survivor on duty is Mads, but he's in critical condition and confined to his bunk.

    If these rumors are true, then this is great, as I can collect Republic forces no problem and don't need to worry about getting Separatist ships.

    It's possible that dials will be changed for Clone Wars ships. However, the fact that FFG is releasing "Fleet Expansions" instead of a Clone Wars Armada core set implies that the game is not changing significantly; 2 new factions are simply being added to Armada, similar to how new factions were added to X-Wing and Legion.
    If the Clone Wars content changes how dials look and operate, presumably those new dials would be included in the Clone Wars Fleet Expansions, which would mean that the Dial Pack is for making existing Armada ships compatible with the new Clone Wars ships. However, that's inconsistent with what FFG did when the new Salvo defense token was introduced in Wave 8; extra Salvo tokens and Local Fire Control upgrade cards were included in the Starhawk and Onager ship expansions to use with other ships. So why wouldn't the Fleet Expansions include "new dials" for older ships? Why should we need to buy the Dial Pack?
    Admittedly, all of this speculation is based off leaked product listings, which could be inaccurate or incomplete. The fact that only a single Dial Pack is listed, rather than dial packs for each faction, implies that the Dial Packs aren't faction-themed like X-Wing's Premium Dials. But it's possible the leaked product listing is incomplete and there are multiple dial packs.
    All of this uncertainty could be resolved if FFG simply revealed Clone Wars Armada.

    What if they are adding a new command, or a ship that goes to speed 5?  That could necessitate all of us buying a dial pack.

    Is it possible that they may be just different colours for the clone wars dials grey for GCW and say red for CW. Maybe they are doing what they did for X-Wing with the dials having fancy plastic covers for them or just different colours like they did for the bases in X-Wing.

    If there truly is a surplus of dials, it makes me question why FFG would make a dial pack if not that there is going to be some change made to how dials look or operate with the release of clone wars things and the dials coming out as an independent pack are meant to provide a means for players to use the dials from Clone Wars content without having to buy the packs en lieu of the upgrade card pack.

    Well that seems to confirm no new Core Set, upgrade cards which will satisfy people who don't want Clone Wars ships but want the cards, and that we'll be at least getting two or three Republic and Separatist ships in each set!

    I'm comfortable adapting the setup for 9, and can't start before next weekend anyway.
    But less than 9 gets awkward for most setups.

    I'd bet the named pilot for the core set is someone like Anakin or Ahsoka, since they showed us the Obi-Wan commander card I doubt they'd include his fighter card as well, similar to what they did for Vader.
