  1. Thanks! I think you missed the bit where I said this was a question aimed at RitR builds with only one upgrade to start.
  2. The magic of probability is beyond me but I'm sure this is a very easy question for someone else. Assume an attack from a single arc with only black dice in range. At what number of black dice does it become more effective to have Ordnance Experts to re-roll misses than to add more black dice with External Racks. This is a question aimed at RitR ships with only one upgrade to start. I realise that OE has other benefits like it can be used on both attacks and over repeated turns and so on. But what if you were only expecting to get one attack?
  3. I don’t recognise this upgrade symbol under the weapon team icon. What is it please?
  4. OP here. We played our first game and I agree with the sentiments above. There was an ISD which risked hitting a lot of obstacles and charging off the board. I definitely agree about the lack of unique cards being a good thing. Everyone enjoyed the format and the challenges of list building at this size Unrelated thought. I wonder if on the 3x3 table it could be the B-Wing’s time to shine?
  5. Thanks for the suggestions everyone. I was actually considering going squadless in round 1 with as many hulls as possible and then add some generic squads through the campaign.
  6. About to start a campaign, quite a casual player. Wondering what peoples experience has been so far? It might be my lack of imagination but I’m struggling to see how an ISD supported by a flotilla and a couple of good aces is not going to dominate. Especially if the commander has the navigate skill for the extra click. Presumably there’s more to it than that so I’d be interested to hear ideas or experiences on what I’ve missed...
  7. It sure is hard to fit in a good squad group in the 200pt starting fleet size for RtR while also respecting the “max 2 uniques” rule. Obviously there’s Tycho+Shara. Whatever it is probably needs to be able to beat Marek+Jendon or Cienna+Valen preferably without costing a lot more than them! I’d been thinking Rogue, YT2400, X-wing, Gold Squadron as a good cheap all rounder that doesn’t need a lot of commands. Though I don’t know how well it does vs the above criteria.
  8. Apologies if this has already been asked. When you build your fleet you choose your three fleet objectives like normal. Between games is there any way to change these? Say you want to try some of the new RtR ones but discover they don't suit your fleet? Are you locked into those objectives unless you retire your fleet and start over?
  9. So can Bosskk! Lando does look good but I don’t see how he particularly aligns with the stated objective of boosting medium squads.
  10. Hmm. I think one thing almost universally agreed upon is that the squadron game has become slow, complicated, and over reliant on aces. So in the campaign one of the main things we get is even more unique squadrons.
  11. I barely post here but read a lot. While yes, this is better than nothing it is a far cry from “brighter than ever”. After such a long delay the next expansion being cardboard only is disappointing to say the least. I suspect that this will be the last release for Armada until the SSD. Then the next releases will be a clone wars reboot - something I am personally not interested in but realise others are keen for.
  12. 10 points to House Nostromoid! I hope you’re enjoying the well deserved satisfaction of being thoroughly correct.
  13. I wonder what tactical choices the SSD player will get to make during a game besides trundle forwards and shoot? I can see an interesting game for the opposition player trying to arc-dodge and chip away at it. Less sure where the fun is for the controlling player (apart from getting to flop their huge dreadnaught out of course).
  14. I really hope its not Clone Wars because I'd rather have more stuff for the game I already play than have to buy a new fleet or two for what iseffectively a new game. Also I didn't enjoy the prequels that much and never watched the Clone Wars series so I really have very little interest in that era of Star Wars. So probably a pass from me. I would rather see an Armada 2 or an Executor.
  15. That sounds more like a Dodonna fleet though? There's an argument to be made that Sato doesn't do anything to benefit squadrons - unlike Dodonna, who does benefit from choosing bomber crits - and if you have too many carriers issuing squadron commands you're not going to be getting the most of what Sato. I think you ideally want the minimum squadrons necessary to make Sato work and focus on not only converting blacks at long range but also concentrating in additional blacks rather than giving squadron commands.
  16. Could you explain the logic of MC75s and CR90s in an Ackbar fleet? Both are fairly easy to double arc with and both are stronger double arcing than just getting the bonus from Ackbar on one broadside. I realise you don't have to broadside with every ship every turn with Ackbar but I'm wondering how often you're actually taking the Ackbar benefit with this kind of fleet? I've tried it and found I wasn't using Ackbar much.
  17. This did not go the way I thought it would.
  18. Watching Solo reminded me that we’re missing the opportunity to have a squadron card for Lando piloting the Falcon. After all, when we finally get that SSD we’ll be needing him to recreate the Battle of Endor as Han will be busy playing Legion. So what would your card for a Lando piloted Falcon be? Personally, based on his role in RotJ I’d be giving him Relay 2 and Bomber instead of the current traits.
  19. I think trying to teach Harrison Ford the rules would be pretty hilarious. "So Harrison, err Mr. Ford, sir, first you need to set your command dials" "**** off kid, no-ones tell me what to do"
  20. I've come up with two list options, both with an MC80 home-one, and an MC75 (I don't own a Liberty). The first list has Raddus on an MC75A dropping an MC80C with some b-wings stuffed in it. This would hopefully see me dropping in Defiance, with QBTs able to attack with 3 B-Wings, then put out some double-arc hurt on something with two dice added into each shot. This list would probably be out-deployed and doesn't have a bid. I'm very scared of being first-lasted by Kuats... The second list has the same ships but backwards, with Raddus on an MC80 assault raddusing in a 75 ordnance. This one is more traditional I guess? With the 80A doing some long range shooting as it sets up the drop, then dropping in the MC75 to hopefully block. This list has much more of a bid and one more deployment. Any feedback appreciated.

  21. Toryn will help with all the blue flak in that list as well as giving a reroll on all the QLT counters so I think it makes sense.

  23. Good point on WAB and APT, thanks. I have another list I'm looking at with a similar MC75 and admonition but that didn't seem like enough ships to take advantage of Sato. At which point it looks better as a dodonna list I think?
