    While I am sure that you will find something to prevent this, I would encourage all players to make logs!
    I am more than interested in the play-tests of Onagers and Starhawks. Okay, Pod C might be a bit boring because in any case a Starhawk will win but I really look foward to the experience in Pod A.
    And in POD C, all Starhawks should not fight each other but assemble and attack the other PODs!

    Surely this isnt true. FFG has never yet missed a deadline by a month, no reason to believe they would start now. ( :-P )

    Sadly I don't think I'm going to manage to play this time around - youngest child is being super difficult with sleep at the moment and I'm already falling asleep at work during the day. I normally play my Vassal tournament games really late at night/early morning and I'm not going to manage. Crap start to my Armada year! missed my local Prime and now this ūüė≠

    Hi xanderf,
    I just downloaded the previous version including¬†the graphics pack to check the sizes¬†and you are absolutely right ūüėĄ
    I've maintaining my personal version of the graphics pack ever since (starting 2015) and never looked back. Since I have to review all images anyhow, coz some are still low res, I will also have a look into the card sizes. I'll check with @Green Knight to find a good and playable size.
    Cheers

    @Beginner2Winner vs @deDios
    B2W took 1st player and we (kind of) played Rift Assault. (We forgot the token part of the objective until right at the end.)
    deDios: 198 destroyed +10 in tokens
    B2W: 95 destoyed
    deDios won 7:4 with 113pt MOV
    B2W sent Jaina's Light with Raddus aboard to craftily hide near the rift and obstacles that were piled to one side to maximize the effect of the objective. That left his two flotillas and a cloud of rogues to push aggressively up the rest of the space. One flotilla positioned very well to put a MC75 into the side arc of deDios's Mon Karren flagship, but Tycho flew out of the rocks to mess up the perfect placement. This resulted in a massive standoff of double arc'ing ships in a tiny space. Since the Raddus drop MC75 could not go first, a Dodonna's Pride corvette happened to score a single crit through the shields on the speed 1 ship.... comms noise (reduce speed by 1). The drop ship delivered it's payload, vaporizing Dodonna's Pride, but left the opposing flagship in good shape because of Stormtrooper quality marksmanship from the other arc. The MonKarren Battleship hit hard and only needed to ram the speed 0 drop ship to finish it off. The rest was a flak storm and Shara-fest that was wildly accurate to thin the rogues, then the reckless chase between Raddus's Vette and the MonKarren. Raddus survived a massive turn 6 shot to avoid the table by a not finding a structural in 8 cards and not having a nav token to finish the ram.
    Crazy cold dice for B2W and uncharacteristically great dice for me. We had a blast and I was very impressed at B2W's composure considering the lopsidedness of the dice this game. Great opponent.

    What a game... I had a certain idea of a hopefully good strategy - which was destroyed after his first move. Wow, I had no idea of the movement range of a SSD at speed 2 with an overdose of Jerry. In the following rounds I have not really recovered from this first shock leading to some further bad decisions and a somewhat unconcentrated game play.
    Rikash was a great and kind opponent, especially as I had some crying kids at my end. Thanks for the good game and your patience!

    @Beginner2Winner vs Rikash is complete with a victory for the Loyal Sons of the Empire (me). 
    Rikash scored 475 vs B2W's 210 for an MOV of 265, 9-2 for me.
    B2W chose to go first and we played my Fighter Ambush.
    I deployed facing slightly to the left side of the board, centrally, where B2W deployed to the right of the board in a staggered column. Our squads were between the ships with mine being near the central station thanks to the objective. I hard turned in and B2W moved 2 Yt-2400 up to hit some squads but who paid for their temerity (having only done 2 to Rhymer) with their lives (Rogues + squad activation next turn). With me facing down his fleet top of 2, B2W dropped in the MC75 at long range in my front arc (as his entire fleet was at the time). His CR90 moved away (Bravely he ran away away,  brave brave sir Raddus) and this gave the opportunity to pop Bright Hope (who was in medium range). I then moved to try to pin his MC75. His squads did a bit of bombing and the MC75 was (somehow) able to get out of the pin. This left me with a double arc on the MC75 and medium range on the CR90. B2W moved the CR90 away and I bombed the MC75 and fired my 2 arcs (QBT boosted) leaving it on 1 hull and 5 shields (lots of accuracies on redirects).  This allowed the rogue rebels to bomb the SSD with impunity for the next 2 turns. 
    Next turn the MC75 pushes more damage into the SSD and escapes onto a debris field. With no adjacent shields (after the debris) a single Firespray shot to the front pops it and the others went to work on the CR90. Over the next few turns I would tie up and kill most of his squads and 3 rogue Firesprays would drop the CR90. I didn't have a window to repair above half (I would have taken more damage from squads then I could repair) so that left us with 1/2 the SSD down and a JM5k dead. I tabled and was slightly ahead on Fighter Ambush tokens (primarily due to some dire rolls by B2W's squads).
     
    Thanks very much for a great game, B2W!

    Thanks @CommanderDave
    There are a few errors in your list though.
    I think the list I have here is correct:
    VAT 2019 Scoreboard  
    @Karneck - if you don't want me sharing this I'll remove the link. Otherwise please pm me your gmail and I can add you as an admin for the list.
    There are a few match-ups already confirmed:
    @TigerKommandant v @Angry Ewok
    @Green Squadron 3 v @Karneck
    If the @Roquaxvs @itzStevegame is a 7:4 or less then I'll play @The Jabbawookie. 9:2 or more then the winner will play Jabberwookie.

    That looks right, I wasn't putting min in MOV order just points as that doesn't matter for round pairings. Any chance of a google doc between either your or @karneck? A column for rebel/imperial would also be lovely jubbly. One of my favourite things about Vassal tournaments is being able to see how tables update through games and thinking about who I might face next round - don't know if that's true for others though!

    Fun game with a well deserved win for Zamalekite. I have done some quite big mistakes in the second half of the game, which had¬†cost me my Raddus-CR90 and saved his Neb, leading to a higher loss than I have hoped for. Zamalekite on the other hand played a great game and was on the winner-side anyways... ūüôā
    Thanks to @Zamalekite, which was a very good and fair opponent.

    Quite right on all counts except for that I was second player not first as you note.
    That played a pretty significant factor into how the game was played haha.
    Extremely well played Jabba. I bet my farm on killing Jendon and cutting your squads off and when Maarek blanked on both blacks and Jendon lived on 1 hull to relay the following turn the end result was basically sealed. Both of us played as best as we could given the non-random elements of the game, which in my mind is the mark of a great game of Armada. 
    Special thanks for being gracious about my erratic and stressful schedule this week.

    I have to concede to @BrobaFett. I was last week on a trip and on Friday my dog run away in the forest. I am already searching for her for six days in a row now. I have even slept in the woods one night. I cannot guess when this is over. Currently, I am on watch close to points where trailing dogs discovered her trail. I am following what is happening here, when boredom takes over. But I am unable to play. I am so sorry to especially Broba and @GiledPallaeon. But I have to concede.

    We had more than 2 years figuring the current meta.
    And what do we get winning the last major tournament ?
    - A tier 3 Admiral who's been considered average since wave 1
    - 4 DIFFERENT combat ships and no transport support (in a 2 activation vs. 6 activation metaworld ... supposedly.) Also, with a low upgrade commitment.
    - a 'mid-point' squadron component with a base of X-wings.
     
    Another stunning example of the richness of the Armada meta !
    At the point where we are, there is NO SHIP that I would be surprised seeing in the winning list of a major tournament. Which other game can say that, especially in a meta we had all the time to study ?
    The two new biggies + SSD will be super welcome anyway, but let's one last time praise how awesomely diverse the current meta has been.
