From the article...

….?meh?

I dunno, that seems like it'd take a ton of time to play.

From experience in Corellian Conflict 'all out assaults'...those frequently ended up all-day affairs.

So? I don't have a single problem wth spending a whole day playing Armada. 😜😆

Has anyone else noticed the art on the final page? Look what is bombarding the isd. An Assault frigate mk1!

I hope they announce the rest of the sec expansion and then wave eight soon.

I hope so too, but that art has been in the game since wave 1, before Disney aquired the licence, and ever since Disney got the licence they have not put out any ship from legends I belive the AFMK 1 is legends, but we can always hope, I would like to see it.

Personally I'd rather they did the other version of the AFMkI if they did, but anyway... The AFMkII is from Empire at War.

The MC30 is also from computer games only (technically - based on unused concept art for RotJ, appeared in Jedi Knight and Empire at War), and the Raider was FFG-original (but now canon).

Disney acquired Lucasfilm in December 2012 - nearly 2 years before Armada was launched. It may be it took a while for them to lay down rules - we haven't had any non-canon ships since Wave 2, but we did get non-canon squadrons in Wave 5.

Could VSD-1s be good?  Normally they get avoided, but in a crowded battle it seems like they could find something to unload pain on...  Maybe even with Gunnery Team.

I might try adding some Wide Area Barrage as well if I can find someone to play with.  Might be the only time I could get it to work.

I really liked the rules for hyperspace in the CC's All-Out Assault. Teams lay down objective tokens, and at the start of a round, going objective token by objective token, teams can either scoot the token around or else use it like a deployment beacon to deploy reserve forces out of hyperspace. It's very thematic to have ships zooming out of the depths of space to join the fight, and even better it staggers out the ships in play so that the first several turns don't take even longer than they already take.

The downside to it is, (a) objective tokens are used to mark hyperspace, so it's not compatible with objectives, and (b) it's pretty obnoxious when opponents can plop Demo, Avenger, or Profundity right in your face.

 

Edit: Should have added - And that's why I wish some form of the hyperspace rules could have made their way into the Sector Fleets rules.

The last AOA I played in we won by dropping Insidious behind Home One and a Raider in front.  And then an Arquitens in front.  It felt dirty.

If I'm not mistaken, Konstantine triggers off of "2 friendly medium or large ships", so his effect, despite being limited to your own ships, works against every enemy ship! This format may see him rise from the garbage heap as a great support admiral.

Ahh yeah, old artwork - but I thought it looked more like a Nebulon B2 Modified Frigate - aren't Assault Friggate MKIs bigger? :D

Yeah! Would be sooo cool! Imagine game a game mode (Save the Interdictor(s)) where, the Imperial players need to keep their Interdictors 'operational' so that by a certain turn, the rest of the Imperial Fleet jumps in to 'game-over' the Rebels. 😄😄😄

Also, just wanted to take the time to say thanks to FFG, for finally getting us some gameplay news. One good turn deserves another! 😊

Interesting, I thought it was after Armada, launched.

I'm of course very excited about this article. It also made me thinking about expanding my fleet even more.

What I like the most aboit the new rules however is that they drastically limited the admirals' ability. I really like thst they can be used only agaonst one chosen player. Although I would have made the Grand Admiral's ability to effect every player. It would be an interesting layer of strategy if Leia, Garm, Thrawn or JJ woulld give fleet-wide benefits.

Just discovered something interesting.

When you right click and save image on on the new armada article it saves it with the image name as follows "swm25_preview1".

CC was SWM25. That means this article, sector fleet rules, and thus the SSD, WAS originally intended to be dropped with CC when it released.
Not very helpful in the now, but really interesting to see how things would of released.

I feel like it is more likely they didn't change the name considering its the CC box art.

We need an Imperial Rogue One where they steal the CR90 plans.
