    FFG ARMADA Article: Interview online!!!

    I just don't see how it would be any different than things are now. You go online, read the latest FAQ/errata, and then use a fleet building website to make your fleet, the author of which has already updated everything. Numerous cards have already been modified. Honestly what's a few more?

    FFG ARMADA Article: Interview online!!!

    I can't think of a single miniatures game I've played that hasn't had some form of digital components or updates. That's an absurd restriction. **** even in like 2nd edition 40k back in the dark ages we were making our lists with excel sheets and things were digitally upgraded online. Without a shred of sarcasm, do you guys not have phones?

    FFG ARMADA Article: Interview online!!!

    The x wing system looks awesome. I'd love to have that in Armada. Just tweaking costs alone could mayyybe make a few dud upgrades useful.
  4. Nice, no idea what time we'll actually get there but that would be fun!

    What have you played this year?

    Well I've become a dirty rebel player. I started off the year with very unmannered bomber lists, but my new kick is Madine. Honestly if you don't have a lib facing back towards your own edge on turn 4 why even bother playing?
  6. He doesn't even walk in. Poor guy gets a Skype call halfway through the battle and bites it in front of the whole gunnery team.

    Family Time Games

    This is actually the exact type of scenario that caused the "customer is always right" mentally. A disgruntled customer is going to go home angry, and tell friends/family/internet strangers all about how angry they are, from their side of the story only. The business doesn't get to chip in too. That's why you bend over backwards for them. It has nothing to do with morality or ethics. A pissed customer will cause trouble you can't counter, so put on a fake smile and pretend they're right.

    Best Star Wars Quote for playing Armada?

    "Asteroids do not concern me, admiral!" "Ah crap, structural"

    NK-7s Expensive but worth it?

    NK7s are simply too expensive to be useful. Ships large enough to justify tossing their tokens usually have a token to spare and will always just get rid of their least useful one. Small ships will die before the benefit of not having tokens starts to impact them. I'd rather always just deal more damage. Death is the best CC. For a point cheaper, HIEs will make those redirects useless anyway. But while we're talking about ion cannons, let me promote my new favorite, MS-1s! Only 2 points, if you aren't taking another ion upgrade, toss them in! It's awesome!

    Armada trade thread

    Yeah I've got a hunch that speed 4 kuat just might not be legit.
  13. Man some of you jerks are like the $&#hole in an online game who "quits" but doesn't actually leave and spends the next 20 minutes yelling at everyone in all chat. Take your bat and ball and go home already.

    How Far Do You Travel for Tournaments?

    I generally drive anywhere a half hour to hour away for tournaments. Regionals was the furthest I'd gone as that was almost 2 hours away. I don't mind an hour drive for a guaranteed 3 to 4 games though!
