Dont waste your money here. You did well by quitting before the HH you dodged that bullet. Armada tabletop game has developed to an Imperial fanboy community lurking into new strategies to blow rebel scum up with the support of developers. Now they know is completely dead and release that super stupid broken thing for 200 knowing the 80% of the community, the imperial community, will buy it handsfull. Not only 1 but also 2 or 3 of them each, so they can retire and close armada for good.

Put your money in Legion while is playble, we still have chances on the ground.

80% of the community is Imperial? I'm gonna need the data on this.

Wait what? This game is so slanted to the rebels they have won worlds the last 2 years running.  Also look at the top 4 from each of those years.  This is such a BS statement

Yavaris was explicitly (and finally) ruled to say squads attack twice if they did not move at all, meaning you can't cheat with Fighter Coordination team to push them into place. Rieekan also must select only one ship or unique squadron to preserve after death; it's not every named ace or starship in his force anymore.

Hasn't stopped the deadly potential out of the list archetypes though. Your fighters will probably already be in position from last turn's fighter phase, and if you start your escort deaths with Wedge, Rieekan still works just fine. Yavris still appears on major top tables, and Rieekan carried the day at Worlds day 2 this year (in response to Raddus Hyperspace-assault-in-a-can-except-with-big-ships bombs).

Good to know. Sad that it's what 3 years now that R-Aces is still the biggest answer or near enough

For those wondering who this chap Lyraeus is, here's a battle report prepared back when Captain Weather was still suckling at his mama's teet.

Not wanting to make firewood, @Lyraeus. It just happens it was one of the very first discussions I read here when I started. And those pictures were so much fun and amazing.

@Ardaedhel brought them back on the Rules Discussion subforum as you arrived, just by chance.

Gotta make your name somewhere and they fixed that loophole in the rule book so they found it to be somewhat based in reality (even if it is the hyper tiny portion that was in my head) 

 

No one remembers my small contribution in bringing more subforums though. Alas not all things survive history.

That's a good opinion. I personally think you are wrong (especially since I have everything still so I won't be spending much... Except 2 SSD's and some of the newer things. 

 

Yes there are lists that are hard to counter but you have to come up with them. Play against them a hundred times (ok this is Armada so let's say 20 times due to time constraints) and figure out how you fly against those lists to beat them. 

 

Back in my day of the game squadrons were huge (well not always but the start of DtO they were) and I built a list without them on purpose to prove that you could win... Oh and Dodonna was there because everyone said he was bad. 

Then I won a store champ in my area with some super squadron heavy players did amazing on Vassal, etc and proved the "meta" wrong. 

 

So don't let what seems to be an injustice get you down, you control your own turns and moves, not anyone else.

I'm sorry, who are you again?  Get over to a 20% thread where you belong, we're busy discussing how to finally win worlds. ?

Haha! Good one, my fellow diehard Imperial patriot! You really are a card!  C’mon, let’s go get some favorable errata rulings from Ian.

Oh? I mean I want to see what different ideas are out there in Imperials but... Are they really all that different than 2 years ago?

They're different (and have tons of fun options!) but aren't broken.  I was just mocking @xerpo's hilarious notion that most of the playerbase is some secret Imperial coalition influencing the rules.  He's the resident troll, pops in from time to time.

Ahh now I remember him. Wasn't he one of the Armada is dead crowd? I think I remember him whining about being called a troll too. Good times.

If I'm remembering correctly then he had some wild conspiracy theories about Q manipulating the rules for his "bros." It was all very absurd.

Which rules? The FAQ that was needed badly and that what maybe 90% of the community seemed to be ok with?

I don't remember exactly which rule it was. I do know all Q did was announce which way he was ruling on something that had not been FAQed yet and xerpo went nuts about it being some kind of collusion. @Undeadguy butted heads with him the most I think and ended up being declared head of the Brominati because of it.

Likely I would of butted heads too. Meh, it's up to each person to control their outcome of a games experience.

No you wouldn’t have.

 You know better than to question a TO when he makes a ruling - doubly so when he makes a ruling in advance and advertises it.

I meant with xerpo. 

 

TO's are important and should be obeyed but if they rule wrong and that ruling destroyed a chance for a victory it will be hard to have them TO in the future. Credibility is important

Making a ruling is going to do that for better or worse.

Becayse the very fact you need to make a ruling.

There is no such thing as “Ruled wrong”

 

they ruled.

Isbt it best to have it in advance then?

Yup. I agree unless it creates some level of ambiguity. Then it's just a bad ruling.
