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)

Bravo, 8.5/10.

 

It took me the first few sentences, but you sealed the deal when referring to Madine as a "she."

Oh come on, no bloke has any right having that haircut....

  :D

 

 

You clearly didn't live through the '80s like some of us did...

 

I really don't get why there's nostalgia for that decade.  :lol:

 

Edit: Wait, let me clarify - aside from a selection of TV shows and movies, I don't get why anyone misses that decade  :P

Am I the only one who thinks the idea of the rebels having more large base ship models to choose from then the Empire is insane?

 

Erm.....

 

Wrong thread mate. This is for burning VSD's. Though I suppose chuck the ISD's in the fire too if you want. Empire are small ship fleets only now.

Technically, they're all MC80s

Same as on the Empire Side, they're all Imperial Star Destroyers.

Yes.

Seriously though if you think about Canon the Empire had less verity than the Rebel Alliance and was mostly just an ISD variant or support class ship.

The Rebels had to modify civilian ships or use old outdated war ships so their fleet looked like a flea market while the Imperial Navy looked very uniformed. So it makes sense. Also I think the Imperial Fleet is already fantastic and after this next wave there won't be much left to add from Canon of we stick to the Civil War era.

besides, and let's be realistic about this, what other imperial large base ship could ever compare to the ISD?

 

it's the freaking ISD, no one in their right mind could ask for anything else :P

When you play rebels and you have almost no other way to manipulate dice at range....  (Looking at you, Assault Frigate)...

It might be a godsend.

 

This. My friend runs Ackbar whales and I don't fear them because of the hundreds of times fickle red dice have not been his friends. 

 

XI-7s and intel officers don't matter if you can't hit what you're shooting at.

Those cursed Assault Frigate Reds. . . I still say we need to change Fickle's name to Ficklereddice.

Time for a Venator super carrier large base imperial ship to be officially made.

5 squadron command. To balance put the variety of large ships available between rebels and imperials.

Honestly if they made a Carrier and just released up grades with other ships I'd be good with the Imperial large ships. After all it is the ISD that has us playing Armada and not X-Wing. Am I wrong?

(Even when I play Rebels more than the Imperials it's facing off the Star Destroyers that makes this a Star Wars game for me.)

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!"
