8/31 Updates

Raddus and Rieekan are done, more updates soon enough I hope. Tearing through Commanders and hitting squadrons soon enough....

Raddus was mainly clarification and name-dropping Truth and Josiah as evidence of how I've seen Raddus work.

Rieekan was a few links and jokes, nothing I hadn't already somewhat changed post-nerf before.  I added a section in there about what the main issue fighting against him is, but it's rather straight-forward.  You can't alpha-strike the zombie lord.

John Updates 8/20

More Commander updates!

Jan Dodonna
Clarity updates mainly.  Nothing worth noting specifically IMO.

Jun Sato
Entire rewrites and everything.  Removed a fair amount on trying to make a Sato squad heavy list worked and heavily borrowed from discussions from friends online/the experience of Steel Squadron.  I do recommend just going and reading the article if you want to, there's a good chunk of stuff there.

Leaving me left to update (this section is here for my notes, haha):
Leia (clearly I need to write more on her....)
Raddus (I don't think I need to do an intense update, but I could stand for some more)

Eric's post-Gencon thoughts

All right, so this is the second half of my Gencon report where I kind of ponder where the game is at. Like past thinkpieces, it's going to be contentious in places. You may not agree with me, and that's fine. Hell, I may not even agree with me in a few months 😅.

SSD hype
Everyone was loving the SSD teased at Gencon. We had a number of people coming by the tables interested in the game and considering getting in with the SSD. Good job, FFG. Just remember that a number of people play Rebels, too...

Aww yiss look at that evil lawn dart!

Eric Gencon 2018 report

So John's article is out there and I dallied a lot writing a super-article, only to decide it was probably best to divide it into two parts. So here's the actual Gencon report, post-Gencon thoughts will be its own separate thing.

Workable Insanity AKA John's GenCon Wrap-Up!

GenCon! The second best 4 days of gaming all year! (Sorry, slogan bros, I had fun at Worlds).  And as we vaguely remember from our previous article, John ran his stupid mouth and made a bet that he shouldn't have! How'd that go? What'd John run? And what did he learn? Let's hit the jump and see what happened!

Onwards to GenCon!

Just a general announcement that Eric and I will be at GenCon this year, playing in the Armada tournament on Saturday.  Eric will likely be wearing the Fair Game Tee shirt with the below Chicago Armada flag (designed by Jake, one of our locals).

My, kind of crit, Structural Is....
And I'll be in my usual Armada tie with its fancy pattern of dice symbols.  If you see us, feel free to stop by and say hi.  And if you can spare some love, I don't need you to believe in Leia.  I need you to believe in the ME who believes in Leia.
Do the impossible, play the unplayable: Row! Row! Fight the power!
See you all there!

SSD teased at Gencon

John and I will likely have more to say on Friday after FFG releases a proper article on the subject, but for now you can find the teaser images here:
