Still don't see why. I mean unless you want me to burn your threads and spout DtO propaganda everywhere ? oh and have wildly inflammatory opinions... 

 

I did miss you all though. Interesting people one and all. Even the AiD trolls. 

Hey those two are my jobs. But I guess I can't do it alone. Welcome back.

We laugh, but there are some out there who are honking to the fact that this is a one-off expensive appeasement item while FFG's real love and attention is being heaped on X-Wing and Legion.

I mean, that's not an entirely incorrect view. $200 for one model is a bit expensive for those on a budget. And given the announcements, they're clearly focusing on those two games more than they are Armada (from a business standpoint, probably the best option).

I agree.  I think Armada has, honestly, run its course.  There's a ton of cool options and stuff to play with that if FFG did say the game was complete, I wouldn't be thinking, "What about ______?"  I think a lot of game companies should be doing that more often.

I think Legion and X-Wing have a lot more to mine from and easier to buy into.  Armada already had a reputation for being expensive.  The SSD reinforces it.

Not a true one though. IMHO 

I totally agree.  I think a lot of people balk at the idea of dropping $50 on an ISD, but you need only 1.  When people are buying 3+ TIE Fighters for X-Wing, the price difference is a wash.

People aren't very good with money and price points.  I remember in a marketing class so many moons ago that they said $20 is that sweet price spot.  More and people start to reconsider buying.  I think that's why X-Wing excels so well.  The iconic, cool ships people want are $15-20.

What was that? I couldn't hear you over the screams of dying Rebels.

Hahahaha got that before. Most opponents have been dusted. You will have to test your luck one of these days.

Even @MattShadowlord is back in the game - the age of Titans hath come again... 

 

:D

I just had a very busy few months, and had to put Armada and most other hobbies on the backburner to give 'Real Life' precedence.

However, I recently realised while RL has its charms, I like Armada better :D

Basically why I am back. I want to play table top again. 

 

I answered some questions for you
