@ryanabt you’re showing your age.  Kids these days aren’t going to recognize 409, Surfin USA, or California Girls... to be fair though, I think one of The Beach Boys are still alive.

In my case, I am showing my parent's age. I cried my eyes out when I found out that Buddy Holly died. I was born in '81.

Do not tell me about the Big Bopper.

Some guy named Mace brought into space

And an ugly whale a crashin' down

Darth Vader on a card

And Reeikan dying hard

Makes us go six rounds

There ain't nothin' in the world

Like Home One swirl

That makes me act so funny

Make me spend my money

Lets Yularen loose for token reuse

Like Wave Eight, oh baby that's what I like

 

What's that FFG, but, but, but

Oh Asmodee

But, oh FFG you know what I like

What's that Asmodee

There's no Wave 8? Its not just late?

But FFG, that joke ain't funny honey

Oh alright FFG, you know what I like

For the bitterness that the Armada community seems to be in right now (some in outright denial of it's future), George Strait's Ocean Front Property came to mind. Not as old as the Beach Boys, but still a classic. Thanks for the inspiration, @ryanabt.

 

Don’t you worry

FFG loves us

Even more than X-Wing 2.0

Community Liaison

They don’t need one

‘cuz they support Armada

Now if you’ll buy that

 

I got some inside info into the next expansions

Dreadnaughts, Braha'tok, and the SSD

Next week’s an article, but nothing for Legion

If you’ll buy that I’ll throw the U-wing and Gunboat in free

 

Mel’s and KDY,

Temporary solutions

Only until the next wave drops,

We’ll all wait patiently, money in hand

‘cuz Armada ain't dead

Now if you’ll buy that

 

I got some inside info on the next campaign

New objectives and squadrons, even better than CC

Epic-level play and a Death Star scenario

If you’ll buy that, I'll throw the Eclipse in free

Wouldn't it be nice if we had updates
Then we wouldn't have to wait so long
And wouldn't it be nice to have new ships out
In the Star Wars world where we belong

You know its gonna make it that much better
When we can say "Good Game" and play together

Wouldn't it be nice if we could blow up
Wave eight squadrons when the day is new
And after having spent six rounds together
Talk it over drinking a nice brew

Happy times forecasting we've been spending
Waiting for updates has been neverending
Wouldn't it be nice

Maybe if we whine and cry and throw a fit it might come true
Buddies then we wouldn't think about wave nine for a day or two
We could be playing (we could be playing)
And then we'd be happy (and then we'd be happy)

Wouldn't it be nice

You know it seems the more we talk about it
It only makes me curse FFG and doubt it
But let's talk about it
Wouldn't it be nice

Music without original lyrics here.

 

Hahah... Not going to lie, I saw the thread title, and the song was immediately in my head, but I totally thought it was just a coincidence.  Imagine my surprise when I came in here and realized that it was intentional.

If you are gonna start a topic, you might as well make it fun and surprising. Sometimes by being unsurprising.

This is the weirdest thing I've ever been mentioned in in my entire life.

I turned in the final draft of my Master's Capstone (pseudo-Thesis) yesterday and decided to do something significantly less productive with some of my free time... And given @melminiatures previous comment, I left him out of this one.

 

Raiders Got Flak (to the tune of "Baby Got Back")

"Oh, my, god. Shara, look at that ship.

It is so sharp.

It looks like one of those big Correllian ships

But, you know, who understands those Imperials

They only build them, because, they have absolutely no creativity

I mean, the shape, is just a wedge.

I can’t believe it’s just so pointy, it’s like, symmetrical, I mean – boring. Look!

It’s just so... grey!"

I like Imp Triangles and I can not lie,

You Rebel Traitors can’t deny

That when a Kuat flies and Accs your brace

With a front arc in your face

You get crushed, wanna try to redirect

BT Avenger’s got you in check

Ord Teams always leave me hitting,

APTs and I can’t stop crit’ing

Oh Leia, gonna leave your fleet broken,

And strip those tokens,

Podcasts tried to warn me,

But those Rebel builds are just so corny

Ooh, Moff Jerjerrod,

You say you wanna fly my Vic,

Well, shield, click, shield, click,

Rebel scum will get double arc’d quick

I’ve seen fish farmin’

Without flotillas arming

It’s a technique, but weak,

Just my personal critique

I’m tired of pre-FAQ elites

Saying’ ‘Dictors aren’t a thing

Take your Raddus bomb, counter to ****

And get yourself a grav well

So, Maarek! (Yeah!) Jendon! (Yeah!)

Has the empire got your back? (**** yeah!)

Then tap it, double tap it

And roll those four blue dice

Raiders got flak!

 

I like ‘em right, and acute

And when I’m ready to shoot

I just can’t help myself, if it’s on the wire

Then I concentrate fire

Pryce wants to last and first

And ugh, double tap, ugh, ugh

I ain’t talkin’ bout Nebulons,

‘Cause Yavaris pre-FAQ is just wrong

I want a lot of hull with Motti

So build that ISD double

MSUs are in trouble

Gonna turn small ships to rubble

So I’m lookin’ at Crabbok’s vids,

Rockin’ them Arquitens with low bids

Rikash keeping up Raider attacks,

With Vader and external racks.

 

A word to those baby seals, I wanna educate you

I won’t club or berate you

But I gotta be straight when I say I wanna

Give it to your real

You gotta play Imperial

A lot of Rebs won’t like this song

‘Cause those terrorists just hide, and broadside

And I’d rather be in your face

Squads got grit, you’ll submit

And I’ll make your capitals quit

So, Ciena! (Yeah!) Valen! (Yeah)

You wanna shoot down Adar Tallon (Yeah!)

Then activate! Screen it out!

Even Rieekan Aceholes going to pout

Raiders got flak!

 

Raiders got flak!

“Yeah, Grand Admirals... when it comes to Pizza-shaped ships, Mon Calamari ain't got nothing on us.

Gladiator, IO, Ord Teams, APTs, and Engine Techs. Only if it’s got Demo.”

 

So your girlfriend flies a Mark II, always tryin’ to broadside you,

But Ackbar ain’t got nothing on Sloane, tokens stripped I pursue

Ozzel don’t want none

Unless you've got Navs, son

You can build with Raiders or Quasars,

But please don’t lose that shape

Some players wanna bring up Worlds again,

And tell you that the Imps can’t win

They stick with their MC toys

So I fly in quick to destroy

Worlds says we can’t compete,

Then get on Vassal for a defeat

‘Cause our color is grey and fighters are TIE

Kiss your flagship goodbye

To the small base ships on the other side:

Got you beat, Corvettes!

Give me a Raider, you traitor,

With disposable caps and Vader

Some General tried to diss

‘Cause Special K was in my list

So his speed was quickly disabled

Which was how his fleet got tabled

So Rebels, if you ship is round

Jerk Gozanti’s gonna slice you down

Don’t send your squads in too quick,

Instigator’s gonna make ‘em stick

 

Raiders got flak!

Raiders got flak!

 

Only four hull but they got much flak

Only four hull but they got much flak

Only four hull but they got much flak

Only four hull but they got much flak

Hello? Hello? Hello? Is there anybody in there?

Just nod if you can hear me

Is there anyone with Sloane?

Come on now

 I hear your shields are down

Well I can increase your pain

Watch your screen explode again

 

Relax

I'll need some Intel first

Just the basic facts

Jan will show me where to burst.

There is no hope of you retreating

A distant ship smoking on the horizon

You aren’t getting through my brace

My crit’s blue and your squadron wing is decaying

When I was deployed I had a speed boost

My hands felt just like two balloons

Now I've got that feeling once again

You can’t contain, and no repair command

You sure are in a jam

I have become comfortably Numb

 

OP

Just a triple pinprick

There'll be no more, TIEs for you

And you may feel a little sick

Fighter Ambush?

Obstructed B-wings lurking, good

 That'll get you blowing up in smoke

Come on it's time to go

 

There is no hope of you retreating

A distant ship, smoking on the horizon

You aren’t getting through my brace

My crit’s blue and your squadron wing is decaying

When I was deployed

I caught a fleet of Imps

 Out of the corner of my eye

I turned to look and it was bombed

I cannot put my finger on it now

Defiance has flown

The fleet is gone

 I have become comfortably Numb

(Feel It Still)

Can't keep my fleet in port

Think I'll dust it off, put it back out on patrol

In case the rebels ignore my decrees

Am I coming out of left field?

 

Ooh woo, I'm a Imperial just for kicks, now

I been feeling it since Order 66 now

Might be over now, but I feel it still

Ooh woo, I'm a Imperial just for kicks, now

Let me kick it like a Imperial Star Destoyer, now

Might be over now, but I feel it still

 

Got a rebellion to crush

Leave ‘em with the Grand Admiral, mama, call the grave digger 

Gone with the fallen leaves

Am I coming out of left field?

 

Ooh woo, I'm a Imperial just for kicks, now

I been feeling it since Order 66 now

Might be over now, but I feel it still

Ooh woo, I'm a Imperial just for kicks, now

Let me kick it like Victory Destroyer, now

Might be over now, but I feel it still

 

We could fight a war for peace

(Ooh woo, I'm a Imperial just for kicks, now)

Give in to that easy living

Goodbye to Rebel hopes and dreams

Stop flipping my defense tokens

We could wait until that Death Star blast

(Ooh woo, I'm a Imperial just for kicks, now)

It's time to give a little to 

Raddus in the middle, but 'til it explodes

Won't bother me

 

Is it coming?

Is it coming?

Is it coming?

Is it coming?

Is it coming?

Is it coming back?

 

Ooh woo, I'm a Imperial just for kicks, yeah

Lack of updates is an abyss to eclipse, now

Might be over now, but I feel it still

 

Ooh woo, I'm a Imperial just for kicks, now

I've been feeling it since Order 66, now

Might be over now, but I feel it still

Ooh woo, I'm a Imperial just for kicks, now

Let me kick it like a Gladiator, now

Might be over now, but I feel it still

Might've had your fill, but you feel it still
