"...and rules" - so I guess we are getting some new rules for Armada.

I was thinking only today that it would be nice to have a mechanism to disable enemy upgrade cards.  So you apply damage to the enemy ship and can make them flip over upgrade cards, which cost (say) 2 engineering points to flip back .

Has there ever been a wave that didn’t have some rules changes? 
 

Wave 2-Contain, Rogue

Wave 3-Fleet support and flotillas

Wave 4- experimental retrofits

Wave 5-Relay, Cloak, Fleet Commands

Wave 6- Boarding Parties

Wave 7- Assault

SSD- Too much to discuss here

Wave 8- “Extreme Range” and ignition attacks. 
 

I don’t know if the new rules will be minor things like above or if they will be a major overhaul. I think it will probably mostly be a few new mechanics, and not affect existing ships too much

Fixed placement of Rogue.

If they explained rogue on wave 5 they waited too much

My predictions for the starter set reveals:

  1. The Separatist "starter fleet" will contain two Banking Clan frigates (not a terribly controversial or original prediction, I admit)
  2. They'll be priced such that FFG "encourages" (requires? haha) Separatist players to buy two, if not three, sets to field a 400pt fleet (at least while players wait for additional expansions). Upsell, upsell, upsell.

The price is wrong pryce...

 

please make her 15 pts

I’d rather see her removed or reworked.

 

I’m not sure she balances well at any points cost. A single upgrade that warps the entire way the game pans out?

I think the "rules" might just be stuff specifically related to CW factions and upgrades, like that "Clone only" text.

I think it's been time for a new FAQ, but maybe we won't get one at all until the CW release.

Anyone else now thinking the  "dial upgrade pack" isn't for new players but to convert existing ones? Maybe we are getting a new command?

Please, no. 

 

Not saying you're wrong, but what a total pain in the bumhole that would be.

She isnt alone. You cant just remove her. Got to be holistic which FFG have rarely been with nerfs.
