Yes, come to Nova you butts!

If I(/we?) can swing it, it would be nice. Main issue for me is with it being so close to Gencon it's asking a lot of the home team to mind the kiddo so much in my absence.

Kind of in this boat as well.  All for videos, but not at the expense of the SC articles.  Because the articles are really good.

Well good news, because I don't know how to video:

Nice gladiator article, but no love for Ruthless Strategists? That's a hard call vs ordnance experts on a flak focused Gladiator 2.

I think Captain Jonus deserves a mention with the GSD II and his ability to change the red dice to an accuracy, sure its got a lot of moving parts, but I think its no more gimmicky then the seventh fleet title.

Gonna disagree. Want to kill squads and spook them away? Take ruthless. Want a rounded ship that's sorta ok at everything, take ordnance experts.

Yeah, sorry Biggsy, I'm gonna defer to Kristjan's experience on this one. Those Canadians have shown RS+Kallus Demos to be quite potent, especially in a squad heavy meta.

Ruthless always looks good but requires that you:

1: Have squadrons.

2: Have those squadrons engaged with all the other squadrons you want to hit.

3: Be willing to take a hull damage per damage dealt.

4:  Give up an oppertunity cost of .25 average damage PER black dice rolled on anti-ship.

While Flechettes / Ordnance / Kallus works 43% of the time, every time.
