Yeah man, those are stock up prices right there- wish they had some of the newer waves on that sale because I've just got one set each of the flotilla ships and want more. . The MC30c is one of my favorite ships in the game- love that thing. And the ISD is a MUST HAVE if you don't already have one because...well, you got into this game to fly an ISD, didn't you?

I don't know what nonsense this is, but SW:A is Shadow War: Armageddon.

Yeah I ended up grabbing one of each from Wave 2.

I have one of each from Wave 1 since launch, played the game a few times, loved it, but don't have a regular partner and I'm not interested in playing in tournaments with meta lists so I never jumped in on the rest of it.

But for that price, I just have to get the ISD and throw it on the table. Cant wait to load up an ISD and Slave I and a ton of tie squadrons and just see what I can do with it.

I really don't have anyone to play Armada with right now- my friend that had some ships was really more into X-Wing and I haven't seen him in a while. But you know what, I find it to be unusually good solo. You don't get the surprise of not knowing what the other side is doing, but commandeering the ships and seeing how it all turns out it really fun. You can pour a drink, put on some music and push 'em around for a couple of hours and have a really fun time.

I do not care anything about meta or tournaments or any of that. To be honest, I don't even use a lot of the upgrade cards. I use Fab's Fleet Builder and just generate random battles.

Haven't played in a while either and it's killing me. I've held off on the last two waves because of that. Also would love to try the Corellian campaign, I love the ideas in it. They would improve Armada a lot (being attached to ships, limiting upgrades).

It is excellent solo.

Yeah I'm gonna have to set it up solo when my ships come in (heh). I looked at all the stuff from waves 3-5. I think I need to get two sets each of the transports/imperial carriers and then a box each of the new squadrons but beyond that? Anyone have experience with the new stuff?

Liberty and Interdictor look awesome but I don't know that I really need them because I'll probably never run either over home one/ISD, the medium ships seem like they add a ton, but I have a ton to play with already.

I love the liberty. I would think about getting one. The Interdictor is less necessary but it's sort of a big support ship which is cool, lots of movement powers.

There was a Reddit AMA with Team Covenant the other day and they commented at least for them, Armada has died off . My local opponent wants to try it again, but I prefer X Wing. I'll give it another shot, but I can't get enthused for it.

Yeah, I could see it dying off. It's a long game, so it doesn't fit into tournaments. It's also a fiddlier game.

I actually don't mind it slowing down and staying a niche product. I think they've done a great job with it. Releasing waves slowly, pretty well balanced. I also love that they made the base and first two waves the true core of the game. You can only have those waves and you have everything that the game is about. The most recent waves are really about adding support ships and synergies.

I think there's a legit question to be asked about when a game is done. When do you just keep it in stock (provided it's still selling at a low level) and largely consider it finished? I know that's inconsistent with the expansion model everyone is running, so maybe it's not doable.

I think its an excellent question. Probably depends on whether they have something else to take its place. I am sure FFG by now has pretty good data to show what happens to base game sales once new content stops coming out. I haven't kept track, but doesn't Attack Wing still have new stuff coming out still ?
