Wave 4 Confirms that Armada is Dead

67 posts in this topic

RIP Nelson

 

Nice post :P

 

Also this is, i think, the best looking ships so far for either faction. Well done FFG.

You beat me to it. Though I was going to post more along the lines of how they're announcing a wave before the prior wave is even available for purchase and how it would kill off Armada by burying us in a deluge of mandatory purchases in order to have fun, rather than mirroring his style.

Well done.

I did feel kind of let down with Wave 3 being a single ship per faction...but if FFG is going to do that and announce a new wave every three-ish months I think that's a pretty solid trade off. Nice to see more stuff as always.

After all it is the ISD that has us playing Armada and not X-Wing. Am I wrong?

 

For me, yes, you are wrong.

 

I'd be playing Armada, as a Game format, even if it was any franchise other than Star Wars.

I didn't want the Decision / Decision / Decision / Decision seat of the pants Feel of X-Wing.

I like to contemplate my moves, plan them out, and then watch the plan unfold over a few turns, rather tahn be improvising on the fly.

Good points, the Game Mechanics are better for me too. But aesthetically speaking I still feel many are drawn in by the ISD. Everything about it screams "I'm Bad!"

You know my feelings on X-Wing Beatty. I would play Armada every time.

It's too imbalanced and just feels like another version of 40k.

One of the reasons I play it CASUAL and at home with my own little rules fixes...

;)

 

I have to say that our beloved Marda is a jump up because they fixed the issues that are still in X-WING.

:D

So you pretty much summed up wave 3 spam...gonzos for activations and tricked out ISD. 

 

MC80 Liberty is gonna love that ****...sitting in the corner is gonna be fun with the rebels now that we've got a serious fishhead front arc hitter...flanked with cheapo TRC nebs...it just got real dawg.

i see a lot of people already getting mad about possible fleet builds etc.... but i think what this wave does is bring balance to the force... lawl, im a nerd.... seriously though, imperials now have a serious support ship (and options with cards like grav wells, and tractor beams etc.) and rebels now have the ability to out-gun the imperials (at blue range) in which was a huge complaint for rebels....

 

before this wave the strategy of a fleet was essentially predetermined... i think this wave (although upsetting in some aspects) will do nothing but add a whole lot of variation to lists and strategies.... exciting.

This wave makes taking demolisher a risk...when the Interdictor pops up and slows it down, or out right stops it...

 

Also the Liberty was the missing piece in a rebel sniper fleet...

I was listening to that and Metal Versions of it while I drew the ISD Boss Emote.

Whilst I enjoy the theorising in this thread, you guys are too upbeat. Theorising should be restricted to ways in which the new wave will FAIL only.

 

tl:dr

 

Burn the ships, just burn them. I hear they go up a dream with a can of gasoline! FFG know what they are doing, no fire would be complete without an interdictor so I shall be spending $299 on Interdictors just so I can get a proper melt going on.

 

And just to add, this does not make me friends with SnipaFist. His kind have no place on these forums.

I think referring to General Madine as a her was due to the actor wearing  lipstick in all his scenes of RoTJ in addition to dat coif. But then again so was Akbar...
