Star Wars Armada: The Corellian Conflict starting in January

Postby pasewi » Fri Dec 30, 2016 4:57 pm

This is a new campaign for Star Wars Armada. In it, two teams of 2-3 play out weekly battles for dominance of planets in the Corellian sector. Capturing and holding locations wins resources and strategic advantages for your team. Unique units are shared only once among a team, and losses can carry over from battle to battle, such that destroying a unique upgrade or hero eliminates it for the entire campaign.

The campaign introduces sixteen new unique fighter squadrons and twelve new battle objectives, plus rules for repairing and refitting after a battle and for your forces gaining veterancy. And the Corellian Conflict coincides with the release of Armada Wave V, which includes a new ship and fighter pack for each faction.

The campaign will play out over the course of one weekly battle for each player (three matchups per week in total). I'm looking at Wednesday nights at Off the Wall, with some flexibility if scheduling conflicts arise. I'll be organizing the group, so watch this space for battle reports as the campaign goes on. We're working on getting a campaign kit through the store, which will have some alt art and extra cards. It's not structured like a tournament prize kit, so it's not a cutthroat battle for pick of the stuff.

I've spoken to some interested players so far, but if you would still like to join up send me a message and let me know if you'd rather be on the Rebel or Imperial side. Teams will coordinate their battle plans and can share collections if needed. If it turns out we have more than six players we can always have more than one campaign going on.

I'm feeling rebellious this year. I will rebel the hell out of people unless our cups overfloweth with rebels.

You got it. Rebels might be you, me, and Cpt Nemo (Chris).

I'll serve for the glory of the Empire. We'll teach you Rebel scum a lesson.

And since I won't be using them, if anyone needs any extra Rebel ships to bulk out a fleet, let me know. I have at least two of every ship, minus the Pelta.

Is this a good event for people who are new to Armada?

I'd say so. You get to grow your forces over the course of the campaign, and everyone has teammates. Plus the campaign is not as competitive as a tournament with prizes for the top cuts.

We've got a full roster of six, but if more are interested we can have a second league going at the same time, or else run the campaign again afterwards.

If enough people join for a second league, sure. But don't worry about it!

Plus you start off with the base game mechanics. Each ship can only have a single upgrade card at the start, so you don't have to worry much about learning all the upgrades, just the ships.
