    Whats Your Username Orgin Story?

    2:38. Looking back, 2:39 might have been better.

    Whats Your Username Orgin Story?

    It's a homonym of the biblical book, chapter, verse.
  3. I've always considered the Tector as a possible broadsider for Imperials. Much the way the MC-80L is a forward firepower ship for Rebels. As such, this would give it a role in Imperial fleets.

    How big is your collection?

    After all, it's called ARMADA!

    Do VSDs need an overhaul?

    I really hope FFG will consider a sequel to Corellian Conflict that focuses on ships instead of squadrons. This idea has been suggested before and I think it is still a valid one. Ship overhauls would not be necessary, just new versions ala ISD-C and ISD-K. For instance, a VSD-3 might replace Weapons Team (gunnery team, flight controllers) with Support Team (engine techs, nav team) and Offensive Retrofit (disposable caps, expanded hanger bay) with Defensive Retrofit (ECM, advanced projectors, or RBD). Same weaknesses, but mitigated a bit and a better value for the points cost with VSDs being more common as a result. Most of wave1 could be updated with a benefit like this (a GSD that has a role not including Demolisher, a Nebulon B with a Defensive Retrofit, a more focused AFM2 are ideas). Nothing radical, just tweaks. So whether Scarif Skirmish, Endor Endgame or whatever, maybe FFG has or will have a ship based campaign in the works to address this.

    So who gets the ARC-170?

    It's not a TIE, so it doesn't fit the Imperial idiom. I'm thinking they should be Rebs.
  8. To me, that scene implies that the Arrestor was a training vessel like the aircraft carriers that plied the Great Lakes during WW2* If it was a training vessel, it wouldn't have taken part in any combat situations and hence it's absence in Armada. Just my rationalization.🤔 *Trivia from the Great Lakes State: USS Wolverine and USS Sable.

    Michigan GT

    Lansing is relatively close to GR. I'll be there.

    Weight wait

    Has anyone heard the status of wave 8? Is SSD part of it? Are rebel only players just going to get doinked until after the SSD comes out? Don't know.

    Would you move over to Armada 2.0?

    Too much time and money invested to quit if 2.0 comes around.

    Would you move over to Armada 2.0?

    An updated rules reference would surely be appreciated.

    Who is Armada for?

    Anyone who wants to fly x-wings AND star destroyers!
