    All hail Ryan Kingston.  May his command tokens be plentiful and his dice be favorable.  May he bury his enemies in vollies of turbolaser fire from multiple arcs.

    Very nice game against @drumtier. Won with 8:3 (MoV 156). We both had a mc75 and admo but I had two Transporter and full squads, he brought one transporter with adar tallon and yavaris but only 4 squads (luke, wedge, jan and x-wing). Two game changer: Very narrow positioning and he could not avoid to ram my transporter, need to step one back, ram yavaris (only one hull left) and than have not moved at all but killed yavaris. Second: My bright hope was only at one hull and no scatter but with one shield in the side. Last shoot of the game: 3 red in her side. hit, double and crit. Evaded the double (was on blue distance)  re-roll: Nothing! And with BH I lost only the one shield and survived!
    So, i think, i am on the stand-by list!!!

    No. The “Communist” states (and I would dispute the idea that they were doing Communism “correctly,” btw) mostly started as authoritarian oligarchies or dictatorships anyway. Democracy was rarely ever really given a chance in any of these places.
    Canada has had socialized medicine for decades. As have many Western European countries. How many of those nations have slid into authoritarianism? It should be a quick count. Tell me when you’re finished.
    As for Trump challenging the election, I’m really not getting into this, except to say he has been preemptively challenging the election since before it began, without evidence. Gore v. Bush was a lot closer, and when it became quite clear that he wasn’t going to win, Gore had the grace to concede. Trump probably won’t ever concede, because it’s all a stunt. Check back with that in a few weeks.
    But really, let’s drop the Trump thing. I learned that talking to people who take him seriously is never profitable. Ever.

    Well, yeah.  (1. He was a communist, (2. You don't strike me as someone remotely aligned with him on how the world works so why start here, and (3. He was a communist.  Of course he's going to claim his movement is the superior end result of another movement.
    And maybe socialism could have borne a little more fruit if a certain capitalist superpower hadn't done their best to annihilate it at every opportunity.
    And we do have precedents for capitalist countries being able to incorporate certain socialized policies to their benefit.
    The US is one of the countries least likely to shift all the way to communism given barely a push.  Anticommunist sentiment is thoroughly embedded our culture.  The word is basically an insult.
    And yet we're weird in the western world for not having socialized medicine, for instance, while somehow none of the countries with it have fallen down this terrifying slippery slope I keep hearing about.

    Family and work is killing me, but still trying! Just got a game in vs. @187-Leon, 6 to 5 for him. We had our first Republic vs. Separatist fight! To make a long story short: Munificients are great but Republic squads are great either!
    We played on TTS instead of Vassal as I wanted to learn about that. I hope, this still counts?
    Tomorrow, I will finalize my game against @drumtier in our German vassal league. So if nothing happens tomorrow evening, I should be on the standby list either by points or games and then I hope for the Vassald-gods that the stand-by-ies will have a chance to join the world cup.

    Time for a Vassal tournament to celebrate a more civilized age for Armada!
    Sign up in this thread for a 3-round Swiss in each of 2 pods, with a top 8 elimination cut!!!
    This is a REPUBLIC and SEPARATIST only tourney. No Rebels or Imps allowed.
    Why join this slugfest of Clones, Jedi, Droids, and Sith?
    1. The Clone War has begun... almost. We're ONE article (Hardcell) short, but I'm hoping for Monday. If not, very soon thereafter.
    2. And the new 1.5 rules have been leaked (the German version), so we know what changes are coming there.
    3. The upgrade pack errata/points changes was leaked on Reddit.
    4. Armada module version 4.0.0 is just waiting to burst onto the scene. This will be the first tourney using this major upgrade.
    5. The pandemic is still a thing, so maybe you're not getting loads of IRL action? I'm not.
    6. The Vassal Would Cup is still a way off.
    7. It'll be fun!
    8. Ahsoka will be sad if you don't.

    Great game with a good opponent! He brought his squads much better into the game than I am, which has led to the result. While I like the  Starhawk and have some ideas for furhter builds, these mirror matches were a bit boring... I really look forward to the next round (even as viewer only) and to see how Starhawks fight other ships...
    Thanks @Aresius and good luck to all of you!
