    Merry Chrismahanukwanzakah!

    I figured this would be @Cubanboy Merry Christmas! May your children be quiet for like 10 whole minutes today!
  2. I think I can participate in this.

    Assault pelta: how to use

    To be perfectly clear, it's not a good choice so much as the only choice. It would be more accurate to say that you are paying about 60 points for IFF! If you're lucky, you can get in close range and do some small, inconsistent damage, though.

    Because if you don't have a points fortress, how do you win a game with a large enough MoV to advance?

    Huge ships and ramming

    Why go through all that effort when they could just call up a hammerhead corvette?

    And Legion bypasses Armada in expansions...

    Production cycles being what they are, I would be surprised most if not all twenty-six Legion expansions were planned a year or more ago. Certainly, they are much cheaper and faster to print than Armada (they are unpainted, for one thing). I can only speculate on why the Legion expansions have come at the apparent cost of additional Armada content, but the most likely explanation is simply a limit on bandwidth in terms of both FFG staffing and production capability. It also seems reasonable that they would focus their attention on the new property - they'll want to capitalize on all the new players and keep giving them content to keep it as new and interesting as possible. For that matter, they have also certainly been printing XWing 2.0 content as quickly as possible for (I assume) as similar reason. And Keyforge. It's unfortunate that this has come at the apparent price of additional Armada content, and I would certainly appreciate it if FFG weren't keeping us in the dark about this. But I'm not sure there's a "win" scenario for them, either. And they may be restricted from announcing their plans overall for Armada due to negotiations or for any number of different reasons. At the end of the day, all we can do is continue to enjoy the game we have, look forward to the SSD, and be patient.

    Blockade Run & SSD

    Addendum for @Green Knight: That would be a Konstantine fleet if the RAW currently allowed Konstantine to function with the SSD. Currently, he's explicitly limited to medium and large bases.

    Unlocking Jyn

    Raid tokens counter command tokens pretty reliably, but command dials are a little trickier. There's value to making that liberty discard a nav dial if it wants to use that repair token to move shields. But really, the value of putting three down at once rather than over the course of three turns is pretty minimal.

    MO is a work in progress. The twins caught a stomach bug, and I couldn't leave the wife to deal with that alone. (What we really needed was a young priest and an old priest.) That said, I know I can pretty easily get the top three. I don't know what else was collected.

    Blockade Run & SSD

    Faction: Galactic Empire Points: 389/400 Commander: Moff Jerjerrod Assault Objective: Blockade Run Defense Objective: Hyperspace Assault Navigation Objective: Solar Corona [ flagship ] Star Dreadnought Command Prototype (220 points) - Moff Jerjerrod ( 23 points) - Agent Kallus ( 3 points) - Captain Brunson ( 5 points) - Damage Control Officer ( 5 points) - Gunnery Team ( 7 points) - Phylon Q7 Tractor Beams ( 6 points) - H9 Turbolasers ( 8 points) - Leading Shots ( 4 points) = 281 total ship cost Victory II-Class Star Destroyer (85 points) - Warlord ( 8 points) - Disposable Capacitors ( 3 points) - H9 Turbolasers ( 8 points) - Leading Shots ( 4 points) = 108 total ship cost = 0 total squadron cost The objectives pretty well ensure that you have to deal with Warlord.
  12. Technically, it mitigates every point of hull damage after the first four.

    @Green Knight I fixed my post. Thanks.

    I don't see any reason this would allow you to resolve an engineering dial twice. You can't "double up" with Thrawn, for example. Edit: his card specifically says when you spend ONLY a token to resolve the command. No dial plus token. (Disregard my point about the Interdictor. I thought he was an officer, not a Commander.)
