    Touston reacted to Mad Cat in How is the SSD doing in the wild?   
    I took my SSD fleet today to an 8 player UK tournament at Sanctuary Games. So here is a brief battle report. Enemy fleets are approximate. My fleet was...
        400/400, Station Assault, Planetary Ion Cannon, Solar Corona
        SSD-Command Prototype, Moff JerJerrod, Gunnery Team, QBTs, Leading Shots, Brunson, Palpatane (officer). 267
        Mona, Bobba Fett, Bossk, IG-88, 2 Firesprays 133/134
    Game 1 v Moff JerJerrod flown by @Touston
    3x TRC Arquitens, Demolisher, Gozanti, Mona, Marek, Janus, Mauler. I was second player doing Planetary Ion Cannon mission.
    I deployed Speed 1 on the far left with 2 Ion Cannon tokens in front and one to my right side. All enemies were speed 3, there was an Arquitens coming around my left, 2 going around my right and Demolisher straight at me. Gozanti deployed first so was a little far out to my right.
    Ion cannon gets Brunsoned down to 1 damage on Demolisher.  I delay with the Pass token then move up speed 1 and take a little TRC fire then Demo shoots at close range after a move and puts in the E-Rax too. I lost about 8 shields overall. The other Arquitens move one around each side. Marek pins my Mona and a Firespray. They fire and IG88 helps out getting him to 1 health. Bossk, Bobba and a Firespray Shoot Demo in the flank while his squads move up. Turn 2 Ion cannon softens his flagship, Demolisher double shots and runs down my right side at close range. I repair moving 6 shields around and kill Demolisher with a little squadron help. His Mauler & Mona pins IG, Boba and Firespray. I take more TRC volleys. Turn 3 He gets his flagship Arquitens out of my front arc but Steele is dead now so my Mona and IG soften it up and the SSD shoots it (1 hull now )and the other Arquitens in my front dies after the Ion cannon had softened up the same arc. Turn 4 Flagship orbits to my right but is in tatters and dies. Gozanti is destroyed from my front and I soften up the Arquitens that went around my left. By his Time I had about 5 hull left and 3 rear shields as I repaired some nasty crits. I had lost 3 squads but he only had a Shuttle. In the last turns I repair and shoot out the back (QBTs have been great all game) and the last of my rogues kill it off. 400 to 192 mov.   
    Game 2 v Raddus flown by a beginner player.
    2x APT, OE, redundant shields, HTT MC30Ts, 2x RBD, TRC90s, Tooled up Neb, Spinal & Salvation in Raddus Reserve.  I was second player doing Station Assault.
    I put 3 rocks in the top left then looked for an open area away from his debris on the centre right an placed both stations one behind the other then slap the SSD near both of them with 3 rogues on each side. Jiana's Light (flagship) is over near the asteroids, one MC30 off my 10 o'clock and the other 2 o'clock with Tantive just behind it on a far flanking move to my right. All were speed 4.
    Jiana's Light comes in, I delay, Tantive shoots the front station for 2 damage. I do 3 damage to Tantive (QBTs are great) I Nav 1 yaw left. Left MC30 approaches and gets hit by 3 Rogues later, Right MC30 slows to 3 and the other rogues do 3-4 shield damage. Turn 2 the Left MC30 aborts and runs for it but will com back later. Tantive orbits shooting the base again and flakks out the front. I Nav and shoot the MC30s and do a point on Tantive and yaw back right. MC30 Right gets 2 medium shots at me then is hit by rogues again, Jiana's light gets into range so the rogues on that side switch to attacking it. Turn 3. Still no Raddus drop and I kill Tantive and an MC30 and repair some TRC damage. Jiana's Light comes in on a flank-rear arc and I shoot and the Rogues on that side polish it off with some lucky shots and good accuracies preventing redirection (go Bossk). Turn 4 Salvation can't arrive due to Raddus being dead and we mass squadrons to kill the last ship but it runs off table with no nav command plotted. 480 to 0 MOV.  
    Game 3 v Rieekan flown by the King off Swiss @Ginkapo
    5x ET TRC90s (Jiana's Light flagship with Lando), Slicer Bright hope + Slicer Quantum Storm, Tycho. I won the toss and chose second player, he selected Solar Corona.
    I put the base in the bottom left corner and Gink places a row of asteroids from it to the centre of his DZ. He deploys Quantum Storm opposite the base then a row of 5 TRC90s about distance 1-2 apart (Flagship on the right end) then Bright Hope. I abandon the base an deploy in my right corner at a 45 degree angle. 
    Turn 1 his ships wheel to face me at speed 2-3. Rogues form 2 blobs off each of my bows to stop Tycho pinning us all. I nav for 1 yaw and bank a token. Turn 2 Riekan on Jiana's Light double arcs and races off, down my right side. I repair 3 shields and shoot Rieekan dropping 2 shields, 2 damage to B-Hope (can't attack at long range crit, wohoo!) and about 3 damage to another TRC90. I JerJerrod turn left onto a debris but now face three TRC90s approaching at speed. I take 10ish shield damage and 1-2 hull but not all of them can get out of my front arc. B-Hope slices and gives me a nav command for later. Rogues kill Tycho and soften up 2 CR90s (I thought about going off chasing Rieekan but with his ETs... no, let him go).  Turn 3 Rieekan zooms away and I kill a CR90 (Rieekan keeps it Zombie) Other CR90s get softened up by GTs. Rogues kill off B-Hope and one of those damaged CR90s now off my rear. Turn 4 I still can't repair (Quantum Storm's slicers doing) but get the 4th CR90 down to one hull.  Turn 5 Killed the damaged CR90. We called it at the end of the turn with QS driving off map to avoid a medium range front arc shot. Only Rieekan survived (miles away by now) so a MOV of about 305 to 0.       There were 2 other SSD Lists in the event. One commanded by Sloane the other by Piett. They were 5th and 8th I think. @Touston was second.

    Can we talk about a subtle thing everyone has missed. The Starhawk preview has 5 volley defences, 1 brace, 1 redirect, 1 evade, 1 contain.
     
    the admiral adds one of any defence except scatter. Needa adds an evade and the box he came in had an extra evade.
    i think the starhawk has 4 volleys as defences and NOTHING ELSE

    Not really a list addendum, but I wouldn't recommend skipping objectives. Most of them only change minor things but their absolutely nessesary to balance out the power the first player gets.

    I think it discarding the card is also a good part of the card. I know @Mad Cat has lost at least one game by Med Teams discarding a crit card, and saving an expensive ship.

    Touston got a reaction from Belphegor07 in How will Armada handle the Clone Wars?   
    If you're worried about "none canon" match ups you're playing the wrong game. You can have dead characters (say, Biggs who dies in ANH (spoilers )) bombing the SSD (which isn't around until after ANH), which is flying alongside Chimera (which disappeared before ANH) which happens to be an ISD II (which was a version of the ISD after ANH), all the while Keyan Farlander (no longer canon) is hoping for Jan (not canon) to intel Howlrunner (not canon) so he can join in the bombing. The imperial commander is Tarkin (also dead).... gods I can go on.
    The games there to have fun, and be interesting mechanically. Captain Brunson is everywhere? Don't think about the canon implications, it's a game.
    There is nothing to stop you playing "canon" games, but I see literally no reason for this whole "era specific battles only" mindset. That someone will think FFG will "enforce" something like that seems bizarre to me. It's a none issue.
    Man that was a lot of words to say "it doesn't matter"
