Wave 4 Confirms that Armada is Dead

Recommended Posts

So FFG have dropped their new article on Wave 4: https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/news/2016/5/20/swm-its-a-trap/

 

Wave 4! FFG cant organise a piss up in a brewery so this must be the wave 3 they failed to produce, or better yet it really is a trap and the ships will never arrive. Sweeten us up with the article and then BOOM crush us down again.

 

Come on guys what use are these new ships? Liberty class? I already have six MC80's so dont need another large ships, and definitely not one which chucks blue and red like there is no tomorrow. Is this the reward I get for purchasing so many wave 2 ships. Its not like I can even get that many battlecruisers in 400pts. Utter joke.

 

And they throw in an Interdictor which doesnt even have an evade. Come on guys, why cant you counter Ackbar at all? What do you want me to do, just sit at range whilst getting peppered? He is so OP its not even a joke. Even if I was considering playing anything other than 8 Ackbar CR90 TRC corvettes why would I want to mess about with gravity effects? I can make people deploy at speed 0 or mess with their movements! I'VE ALREADY BURNED MY VSD'S! Give us the perfect boost to the imperial gunship AFTER everyone on my 242 question survey has sold theirs on ebay? Attrocious. 

 

And lets not get started on the new admiral. Madine. How is that going to help my Ackbar corvettes? They already have great manouverability. She literally offers nothing. Not in all my days of reading online gaming articles have I seen such little thought put in. Just give them more red dice and be done with it. This game is sooooooo dead.

 

I like Veteran Gunners, take up the gunnery team slot and wastes all the rerolls from Vader and Ordnance Experts. They will just Lando the dice anyway.

 

Cant believe the excitement in the forums over this. You lot cant see the real picture. Gonna post my data soon.

(Sorry for lack of spelling mistakes)

Thank you that made me feel a lot better after a hard week of 13 hour days.......

Wave 4 has completed my Galactic Civil War wish list.

My next purchase is going to be the Armada Starter Set.

After that, the ships I want from Waves 1 and 2.

Then I'll continue other collecting until Waves 3 and 4.

So if Armada is dead I guess I'll just have to play against myself. Time for a split personality☺

There is some cool stuff. I'm happy to see it. I'll be buying 2 interdicters I'm sure. And a Liberty.

 

If feels pretty rushed though. I will they had just billed it as all Wave 3. A 4 ship wave 3 would have been received better.

You missed one, Gink.

 

"I'm literally sick of FFG FORCING us to buy new models in order to get the upgrades I need to be competitive.   Seriously, it's crap that in order to get 8 MS-1 Ion Batteries for my Riekan Zombie Corvette fleet that I have to buy EIGHT Liberties.  This is just another exmaple of corporate greed/profits being put ahead of the gamer community that helped make it great."

I'll play. We can send each other moves through the mail. It will be just like playing chess in prison. Well. That's what my friend said.

But in all seriousness, I am not buying 5 liberties so i can run a Nebulon Spinal Turbolasers fleet.... 1, maybe 2 will suffice.

But Roc, you can get the MS-1 Ion Batteries in the Dic (heh) package (double heh), and actually get a useful ship out of it!

The Dic package? Is that what we're coining it now? Wonder if it'll stick.

What do the Spinal lasers do? Where can I view all the upgrades, etc.?
