  1. ACMS are pretty fun, when you suddenly have 2 more hullzones to damage and strip shields of, they can be super helpful.
  2. PREPARE FOR TROUBLE, AND MAKE IT DOUBLE. TO PROTECT THE WORLDS FROM DEGREGATION! TO OPRESS ALL NON-HUMANS WITHIN OUR NATION! TO DENOUNCE THE EVILS OF DEMOCRACY AND LIGHT. TO EXTEND OUR REACH TO THE GALAXIES BEYOND! PALPATINE! VADER! TEAM SITH BLASTING OFF AT THE SPEED OF DARK! SURRENDER NOW OR.... UNLIMITED, POOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRR
  3. Even if there is wifi, it will be over crowded and likely super slow. Even local 4G or other data services will suffer. "Rebellions are built on hope"

    Community homebrew Missions/Scenarios thread

    Planetary Invasion: One team has 3 extra transports they need to defend. The transports must make it into the defender's deployment zone, then are removed from the board and placed to the side. Each transport is worth their points. Any transports already in the fleet may be included. (Floatilias are transports)
  5. WHOS READY? This is it. This is the week we might hear something about anything. Who knows! I dont. Regardless, I hope everyone has a good week. Stay safe in travels, fly well, and roll dice while pushing plastic at each other.

    Happy Friday

    I'm working on it. It's a little slow going but I have a few. I need to do more.
  7. Who's got the stats from the year? I wanna know who to bet on for Worlds.
  8. The rules we have been playing, is for 15pts you have a squadron that can carry only a boarding team upgrade. Then at range 2 of an enemy ship it can discard the boarding team to resolve its effect. Its had some success, but its a fun one to try to pull off.
  9. Man. I wont like, S much as I also dislike how powerful Squadrons are in Armada... I do love the idea of using boarding team transports like the LAAT. A buddy and I did a game with some Mel's LAATs to do that.

    Happy Friday

    ARC-170 squadron Swarm, Counter 1 - Uniques: Ling-27: Retired Clone: as long as another ARC-170 squadron, owned by yourself or another friendly player, is in base contact with this squadron, it may roll an additional dice when attacking. Defense Tokens: Brace, Brace OR Retired Clone LAAT/s Transports: Raid, [something else approriate] Ling-27: Retired Clone Marine: This squadron may equip a boarding team upgrade, and no other upgrade type. When this squadron is at distance 2 of an enemy ship, you may discard that boarding team to preform its effect. Defense Tokens: Flare (You may spend this token to cancel black dice attacks preformed against you), Brace.

    FFG ARMADA Article: Interview online!!!

    Honestly, the current set up for points is fine. A simple PDF just adjusting points for competitive play would be acceptable because then you could expect the organizers to have that information. But most of the things that need points adjusted only need them because of competitive play. In normal play, my friends and I agree that things like, Expanded Launchers, are far too expensive and change it down to be 8 points. Our logic is that while it does add 2 black dice, like rapid reload, they are both in the front so thus a little more valuable, but not 13pts. 8 feels good on it.

    What I’d Love to See Released for ARMADA

    I want ARC-170s and LAAT Gunships with Raid on the Rebel side. Or even give Troop Transports like the LAAT gunship the ability to equip a boarding team so you could do boarding actions.

    SSD article up!

    The graphical difference is actually very common when looking at graphics designed for print and transferred to digital. Print is commonly CYMK (Cyan, Yellow, Magenta and Key ((BlacK))) where digital display is often RGB (Red, Green, Blue). Print also frequently adds a few extra colors into their production system such as White, Clear, RGB, Gold, ect. So when planning for something to be printed, you can plan for things to be as thin as you want them to be for print, the printer, press, or whatever machine they use will likely have it done up. Until you transfer it to .JPEG to show on a screen. Between transferring Color Mode (which compresses the image once) then compressing/saving as a .JPEG variant (second compression level), then uploading to a site (third compression) your going to loose something. Its why all of the upgrade icons don't show their fine lines. That much compression and the file is working with what it can get away with. And with how much weird fine graphical detail the cards are trying to get away with, I'm surprised that its just the upgrade icons that are suffering.
