In this, the times of the early meta, it's kind of a bummer that we have oathsworn cav as an upgrade but not expansion boxes of say spearman or reanimates. 

As I've been piecing together my early 200 point force, that's the kind of stuff I *NEED*, tho the command figures will be an auto buy for sure, it's just doubtful they'll do much to get me closer to 200 points. 

Granted I like cav but anything over my 2 core box 2x2 tray force seems less than a great idea.

A 2x1 of cav has really solid offensive output for its cost, especially with Rank Discipline. So far I'm not very good at maneuvering them, but three dice base is great.

I was wondering if they'll increase the army total, like in armada. As of right now if you go for the largest group formation, you'd be hard press to field anything else to decently support it.

I seem to remember that in Armada that FFG had laid out a timeline for the increases from the start.

200 points feels about right as it forces you to make some hard choices when army building. 

200 points can already end up with a crowded deployment zone.

Yeah, essentially once they realized it was going to be core sets only for several weeks and then the large ships wouldn't be out for several months in wave 2, they set out a timeline.  170 pts for core sets, 300 pts for Wave 1, 400 pts from wave 2 forward.

This game has already done that.  100 pt skirmishes for core sets games, 200 pts for full games.  I don't anticipate them increasing that for tournament play unless they come out with some type of epic format.
