Targeting Scrambler vs APTs

One of my regular opponents is getting ready to head to FFG's World Championships in a couple of weeks.  He brought over a fleet he is trying out for a test game.  He had 4x Gladiators with APTs and an Interdictor Combat Refit.  He was looking for a tough matchup, so I put my own Interdictor fleet against him to see if the Targeting Scramblers could do a good job of shutting down the APTs.

More Corellian Conflict Info

We hadn't heard much about the Corellian Conflict expansion since GenCon.  Thankfully FFG put out a new preview to help whet our appetites today.  LINK  While it didn't tell us everything, it certainly gave us enough information to get an idea of the campaign will flow.

A game at the new house

We are slowly getting settled in to our new house.  Fortunately, it has a generous space in the basement for me to set up my game table and shelves.

A good friend of mine has been wanting to learn Armada, so we took the time to get in a game last evening.  I'm actually not fully done with the move yet, so the game was briefly interrupted so we could run over to my old house and load a truck for a trip to the dump.

So, that interruption did keep me from writing up a full battle report.  I did have a couple of thoughts after the game:
  • Grav Shift Reroute continues to be amazing.  My friend was 1st player with the Imperials and was able to move the contested outpost to the middle of the table completely nulifying the second player advantage.
  • Ion Cannon Batteries on the Interdictor continue to impress me.  They were consistently working.  I need to try it with NK-7s at some point.
  • Toryn Farr was great and got me an impressive number of re-rolls throughout the game.  I often focus on her ability in the anti-squadron game and forget to use her to fish for crits or accuracies.

Hopefully I will be getting back to my regular writing schedule soon as the we get settled in the new place.

For the next few weeks updates here will be pretty sparse.  I am currently in the process of moving and fixing up our current house to convert it to a rental.  This will definitely eat into my time that's available for playing games.  

Hopefully when I am all setup to get playing again we should be seeing the Corellian Campaign nearing release!

Interdicting a Tournament

I got the chance to play in a Summer Kit tournament with the Interdictor fleet that I had been testing over the weekend.  I had a great time and was really pleased with the fleet overall.  I think Interdictors will definitely be effective in highly competitive tournaments.  PLus, they are a blast to play with!  Read on for some quick battle reports.

Interdictor Battle Reports

I've managed to get in a couple of games with the fleet I built to test out the Interdictor in the last post.  I've enjoyed playing it so much that I'm figuring on running it at an upcoming tournament.  Read on for a couple of battle reports and some thoughts on how the Interdictor worked.

Trying out the Interdictor

After playing a bunch of games with Rebels in the lead up to GenCon, I was actually looking forward to playing some games with the Interdictor.  After the last two posts theorizing how to get the most out of the Interdictor it was time to build a fleet.
