Executor Arrives

Published 3 August 2018 | Star Wars: Armada Executor Arrives Announcing the Super Star Destroyer Expansion Pack for Star Wars: Armada “If you will not be turned, you will be destroyed.”    –Emperor Palpatine, Star Wars: Return of the Jedi Order your own copy of the Super Star Destroyer Expansion Pack at your local retailer or online through our website today! Something huge is coming to Star Wars™: Armada. Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the Super Star Destroyer Expansion Pack! This expansion pack arrives to swell the forces of the Galactic Empire with the first ship of an entirely new class—huge ships. The pre-painted, beautifully sculpted Super Star Destroyer miniature within this expansion is the largest miniature yet created by Fantasy Flight Games, measuring over 24 inches from tip to tip. Of course, such a huge miniature serves as a stunning reminder of Imperial might on the battlefield—and it’s also a fully functional warship that you can add to your Imperial fleets. With four unique ship sheets, an assortment of tokens, and twenty-four upgrade cards, including iconic commanders like Admiral Piett and Emperor Palpatine, any rival fleet will tremble to face the might of your onslaught. You can pre-order the Super Star Destroyer Expansion Pack at your local retailer or online through our webstore today! Then, read on for more information. Unparalleled Size It’s immediately plain from the size of the Super Star Destroyer alone that this miniature is something special, unlike anything that has yet flown onto your table in Star Wars: Armada. In fact, the Super Star Destroyer is so large that it’s supported by one ship token placed on top of two standard large ship bases! We’ve already mentioned that the introduction of the Super Star Destroyer also marks the introduction of a new class of ships: huge ships. And this new class of ship has powers that reach far beyond mere size. For instance, the Super Star Destroyer features a total of six firing arcs—supplementing the standard front, rear, left, and right firing arcs with brand-new right-auxiliary and left-auxiliary firing arcs. And as you might expect, a huge ship like the Super Star Destroyer increases its attack powers to go with its extra firing arcs. The Super Star Destroyer can make up to three attacks from different firing arcs every round of the game. The Super Star Destroyer has six distinct firing arcs—forward, left, left-auxiliary, rear, right, and right-auxiliary. If the time for you to launch your attack has not yet arrived, huge ships also have the unique ability to pass. Once per round, when you would have to activate the Super Star Destroyer, you can choose instead to pass, allowing your opponent to activate another ship. Although the Super Star Destroyer must still activate each round, the ability to pass and delay your activation temporarily can lead your opponent directly into your trap. Even the command dials you assign to a Super Star Destroyer become more powerful. When you resolve one of these command tokens, you’ll also assign the corresponding command token to your ship! By getting more impact out of every command dial you assign to the Super Star Destroyer, you’ll be prepared to take on the entire enemy fleet on your own. Unmatched Firepower All of the advantages we’ve described so far are common to every huge ship—but the Super Star Destroyer has plenty of power to offer on its own merits. The cheapest way for you to field the Super Star Destroyer is by spending 220 points for the Star Dreadnought Command Prototype. $(document).ready(function() { var opts = { iframe: true, innerHeight: 561, innerWidth: 700 }; $('#180D').colorbox(opts); }); With eight attack dice from its forward firing arc, six ship tokens, a hull value of twenty-two, and nine upgrade slots, the Star Dreadnought Command Prototype offers a truly jaw-dropping addition to an Imperial fleet. And each of the other ship variants in the Super Star Destroyer Expansion Pack is even more expensive and even more powerful than the Star Dreadnought Command Prototype! Still, it’s not purely the ship that makes the Super Star Destroyer Expansion Pack so impressive. There’s also a wealth of upgrade cards that are sure to be valuable to Imperial players across the galaxy, including the debut of Emperor Palpatine $(document).ready(function() { var opts = { iframe: true, innerHeight: 386, innerWidth: 250 }; $('#3FB3').colorbox(opts); }); himself as a commander in Star Wars: Armada. If you want to have the Emperor bless your efforts with his presence, it won’t come easily—Emperor Palpatine costs 35 points to equip as a commander for your Imperial forces. Still, his effects can be deadly as you work to pick apart and destroy your opponent’s defenses. After you deploy fleets, you’ll place one defense token of each type on Emperor Palpatine. Before any ships activate in a round, you can discard one of these tokens. For the rest of the round, if any enemy ship or squadron would spend a matching token, they must discard it instead! By spending the brace token from Emperor Palpatine, you can force your opponent to discard any brace tokens he wishes to use this round! In a fashion that’s truly fitting of the Sith Lord, you can manipulate your opponent’s actions with Emperor Palpatine. If you choose wisely, you may limit your opponent’s options and leave his plans in ruins, as he must choose to lose his most important defense tokens permanently or watch his ships disintegrate under the massive attacks of your Super Star Destroyer. We’ll take a much closer look at the other ship sheets and upgrade cards included in the Super Star Destroyer Expansion Pack in a future preview! The Might of the Empire The Imperial fleet is a force to be feared across the galaxy, and with their largest and most powerful capital ship deploying to your tables in Star Wars: Armada, you can crush your rivals in your grasp. Look for the Super Star Destroyer Expansion Pack (SWM20) early in the first quarter of 2019, and pre-order your copy at your local retailer or online through our website today! Discuss this article in our forums! Star Wars: Armada is an epic two-player game of tactical fleet battles in the Star Wars galaxy. Massive Star Destroyers fly to battle against Rebel corvettes and frigates. Banks of turbolasers unleash torrential volleys of fire against squadrons of X-wing and TIEs. As Rebel and Imperial fleets collide, it is your job to issue the commands that will decide the course of battle and, ultimately, the fate of the galaxy. © &amp; TM Lucasfilm Ltd.

No matter which of these great ships you fly to battle, it will bear testament to your skill, your accomplishments, and the faith invested in you by either the Empire or the Rebellion.

Make Your Dreams Come True

Published 1 June 2018 | Star Wars: Armada Make Your Dreams Come True See the Prizes You Can Win in Star Wars™: Armada 2018 Season Two Organized Play "I was a little girl when the Clone War came to Ryloth. My mother hid us below-ground, but I'd peek out when the Republic ships flew over, as they fought to liberate my world. I dreamt of nothing more than to be up there with them."      –Hera Syndulla, Star Wars: Rebels As a little girl, Hera Syndulla dreamt of piloting a ship and fighting to liberate her world. As a grown woman, Hera Syndulla realized her dreams, becoming not only one of the greatest pilots in the fledgling Rebel Alliance, but one of its greatest leaders as well. Similarly, fans of Star Wars™: Armada tend to be dreamers—dreaming of epic fleet battles among the stars. We take our inspiration from the massive size and firepower of our largest ships and from the speed and mobility of the smaller ones. We fly to battle with dreams of executing just the right series of plans to trap and defeat our foes. And if we plot the right commands during the Organized Play events we attend, we find our successes rewarded by custom prizes. With the second season of Star Wars: Armada in-store play just around the corner, we are happy to reveal the 2018 Star Wars: Armada Season Two prizes! From Ensign to Admiral More than it's about prizes, Star Wars: Armada Organized Play is about bringing players together. It's about helping you find more places to play, introducing you to more players, and getting you more chances to play the game you love. In short, it's about the love of the game. Accordingly, each 2018 Star Wars: Armada Season Two Kit comes with prizes for everyone—from Ensign to Admiral. Each kit contains two Elite Prize Cards and two Elite Prize Items to award to the Top 4 players at the Fleet Patrol Tournament it supports. However, the 2018 Star Wars: Armada Season Two Kit also includes participation prizes for all sixteen of the players it supports. Participation The 2018 Star Wars: Armada Season Two Kit contains seventeen copies of an alternate art version of the External Racks upgrade. Sixteen of these alternate art cards are to be distributed as participation prizes while the seventeeth is intended for the event organizer to keep or distribute at his or her discretion. Elite Prize Card Make the Top 4 at a Fleet Patrol Event, and you'll put yourself in the running for one of the Elite Prizes—either one of the Elite Prize Cards or one of the Elite Prize Items. That means you might have a chance to walk away from your games with an alternate art copy of Hera Syndulla. To a Rebel Admiral, Hera Syndulla's presence means that you can redouble your focus on your capital ships—while trusting Hera and the Ghost to help coordinate your squadrons. To an Imperial Admiral, capturing this alternate art version of Hera Syndulla means dealing a major blow to the young Rebellion and will assuredly earn you a well-deserved promotion! There are three copies of this alternate art squadron card in the 2018 Star Wars: Armada Season Two Kit. The third is intended for the event organizer. Elite Prize Item Star Wars: Armada is all about capital ships. Squadrons play a significant role, but you don't lose if your squadrons are destroyed. You do lose, however, if all your ships are destroyed, and knowing when to assign an engineering command to your ship may prove the difference between victory and defeat. You'll have plenty of opportunities to prove you understand the best time for your engineering commands as you fight your way into the Top 4 players at your local Fleet Patrol Event, and doing so may allow you to claim a set of five custom engineering tokens, painted red on frosted white acrylic. You Need to Plan Ahead Star Wars: Armada is a game of massive ships that requires you to assign your commands well before the first exchanges of fire. Fail to unite your ships behind a comprehensive strategy or anticipate your opponent's tactics and you may see your fleet destroyed in a barrage of missiles, lasers, and proton torpedoes. But if you can plan everything just right? You'll relish the thrills of epic combat, strike a decisive blow in the Galactic Civil War, and walk away with some of the coolest Armada prizes you can find anywhere!

An Unexpected Pleasure

Published 21 May 2018 | Star Wars: Armada An Unexpected Pleasure See the Prizes for the 2018 Star Wars™: Armada National Championships "We shall double our efforts."      –Moff Jerjerrod, Star Wars: Return of the Jedi You'll need to put forth your best effort—perhaps even double your efforts—to claim victory at one of this year's Star Wars™: Armada National Championship tournaments. Top-level events that celebrate all the very best players and strategies that Star Wars: Armada has to offer, the 2018 National Championships feature some of the game's most exciting prizes—including the chance to win seats at the next Star Wars: Armada World Championships for you and a friend! Top 64 The Top 64 participants at each 2018 Star Wars: Armada National Championship receive an alternate art version of Moff Jerjerrod. Illustrated by David Auden Nash and with a look of grim resolve on his face, this version of Moff Jerjerrod doesn't appear at all happy about being asked to double his efforts to ready the second Death Star ahead of Emperor Palpatine's visit… But as we all know, Jerjerrod and his crew managed to get the battle station armed and operational with sufficient time for the Emperor to lay his trap for the Rebellion. You, too, can use Jerjerrod's talents to your advantage—dealing damage to your ships in order to turn them more sharply and lay some traps of your own. Top 16 There are tremendous differences in the strengths of the galaxy's many starships. Still, despite all the firepower that a Star Destroyer can bring to bear against a fleet of Corellian corvettes or that a Mon Calamari cruiser can direct against an isolated Imperial Arquitens-class Light Cruiser, the greatest fleet battles of Star Wars have often turned upon the actions of a single fighter pilot. To commemorate the impact and importance of skillful piloting in even the greatest of battles, the Top 16 participants at each 2018 Star Wars: Armada National Championship tournament are awarded a double-sided plastic squadron card. One side features the Rebellion's A-wing ace, Shara Bey, and the other features the fearsome Imperial pilot, Maarek Stele. Top 8 The Top 8 participants at each 2018 Star Wars: Armada National Championship earn a set of custom acrylic range rulers. Cut at each different speed and firing range, these rulers make it easy to line up your maneuvers and shots in even the most heated combat. Top 4 No matter how much your fleet uses its starfighter squadrons, no matter how large an impact they may play upon your games—the crux of every Star Wars: Armada battle is its ship-to-ship combat. There is nothing more central to Armada than its capital ships. That's why the Top 4 players at each 2018 Star Wars: Armada National Championship win a custom ship tray. Decorated with the colors and symbol of the Rebel Alliance, this tray is comes with spaces to hold your ship card, defense tokens, command dials, and command tokens—holding everything neatly in order, even if your ship is battered, bruised, and ragged from combat! Finalists One of the greatest prizes any fleet admiral can hope to win is survival—and the chance to fight again. Make the finals of a 2018 Star Wars: Armada National Championship, and you'll earn this chance to continue fighting for your Empire or Rebellion. The Top 2 players at each 2018 Star Wars: Armada National Championship earn a free seat at the next Armada World Championship! National Champion Win a 2018 Star Wars: Armada National Championship, and you'll have truly proven yourself one of the galaxy's greatest fleet admirals! Of course, as one of the galaxy's greatest admirals, you'll need a worthy ship—like the Chimaera, Grand Admiral Thrawn's ship, which is featured on the 2018 Star Wars: Armada National Championship trophy. $(document).ready(function() { var opts = { iframe: true, innerHeight: 423, innerWidth: 700 }; $('#7B59').colorbox(opts); }); Meanwhile, as you head to the next Star Wars: Armada World Championship, you'll need to stay focused on winning the war—not just the next battle. Accordingly, your National Championship will earn you a first round Prize Bye. We Will Be Honored by Your Presence You may not be Lord Vader, but we'll still be honored to have you attend one of the 2018 Star Wars: Armada National Championships. Look for more information on our 2018 Star Wars: Armada National Championship website, and be sure to check back as this information will be updated over time! Discuss this article in our forums!

Launch Your Raid

Published 7 May 2018 | Star Wars: Armada Launch Your Raid The European and North American Championship Prizes for Star Wars™: Armada "I believe it could be worth the risk."      –Commander Jun Sato, Star Wars Rebels Fleet admirals for the Galactic Empire and Rebel Alliance now have their eyes on two key targets—the 2018 Star Wars™: Armada European Championships at the UK Game Expo and the 2018 Star Wars: Armada North American Championships at Gen Con Indy! Players on both sides of the Atlantic have their eyes on these events because they mark two of the greatest battles in the year's Star Wars: Armada tournament calendar. At both events, you'll find top-tier competition. You'll also meet some of the game's best and most enthusiastic players, and everyone will arrive ready to defend their fleets against all manner of top-level strategies. What will bring all these talented fleet admirals to the tables in Birmingham and Indianapolis? Of course, there's the thrill of competition. But there's more, as well. You'll find the stakes at these events raised by the chance to win some of the year's coolest prizes! Participation Each participant in the 2018 Star Wars: Armada European and North American Championship tournaments will receive an alternate art version of Commander Sato. The art by Tiziano Baracchi clearly echoes the digital stylings of the Star Wars Rebels television show on which Commander Sato first appeared, and the explosions in the background suggest this is a man of action—one whom Grand Admiral Thrawn once called "the best commander to ever come out of the Mykapo system." Day 2 Qualify for the second day of either the 2018 European Championships or North American Championships, and you'll earn yourself a set of four raid tokens and a chaff token. Featuring silver print on smoke black acrylic, these tokens physically represent your successful disruption of your enemy's plans. Deny your opponent a critical navigation command. Scatter their shots so they can't focus their fire. Or stymie their bombing runs by forcing their bombers to take evasive action. However you thwart your opponent's intended course of action, these tokens will add that little bit of extra flourish to an already successful ploy. Top 64 You don't end up winning by accident. Your ships don't magically arrive where you need them at the top of the third round, or the fourth. And you don't surprise yourself with the key concentrate fire command at the moment you need that full-power shot to destroy your opponent's flagship. Star Wars: Armada is a game about planning—about understanding and anticipating the flow of battle multiple rounds in advance. And, likewise, you won't get to the Top 64 just by showing up. You'll need a good plan. You'll also likely need a bit of audacity—a willingness to take action when you realize the plan you brought to the table isn't going to work. Pull these things together, and you'll win a copy of the plastic, spot-glossed ship card for the MC75 Armored Cruiser. Take your inspiration from Admiral Raddus. Leap into battle at the appropriate time. Change your plans when necessary. And keep your eye on the final victory, even as ships are exploding all around you. Top 32 Command your fleet all the way to the Top 32, and you'll receive a commemorative binder that will stand testament to your performance even as it helps you sort and store all your standard-sized cards. Proudly displaying either the European Championship or North American Championship atop a blue background layered with the appropriate flags, this binder holds nine standard LCG®-sized cards per page and up to 360 cards total. An elastic fastener wraps over the back to keep it shut securely. Top 16 The Top 16 participants at the Star Wars: Armada European Championship and North American Championship will receive a medal bearing the event's logo. Top 8 Rebel leaders must carefully consider the potential risks and rewards of every strike they launch. After all, they know their fleet is vastly overmatched by the full power of the Imperial Navy, and no matter where they go, the Empire can reach them. This is a fact evidenced by the set of range and distance rulers awarded to the Top 8 players at the 2018 Star Wars: Armada European and North American Championships. Made of mirrored blue acrylic with black print, these rulers suggest the Imperial Navy's ability to cross the galaxy and engage the Rebellion wherever its fleet should emerge. Use these rulers to launch your fighter wings. Line up your bombing runs. Fire your turbolasers. No matter the range or the distance, these rulers evoke the strength and menace of the Imperial Navy. Top 4 Given the numerous challenges awaiting them at the European and North American Championships, there can be little doubt that the Top 4 fleet admirals will all be due for promotions—and we'll hope to see them all competing for the game's top honors at the 2019 Star Wars: Armada World Championships! For their efforts, each of these aces will earn a free event ticket for the 2019 Star Wars: Armada World Championships. Runner-Up The Runners-Up at the European and North American Championships each earn a first-round bye in addition to their reserved seat and free event entry. More than this, each Runner-Up also walks away with a plaque commemorating his or her placement. Champion As a game with a set number of rounds—and ships that need multiple rounds to respond to the commands you give them—Star Wars: Armada demands that you direct your full attention toward your singular goal. You're not here to show off. You're not on the battlefield to outmaneuver your foes or destroy one of your opponent's most important ships. In Star Wars: Armada, you enter each engagement with only one ambition—to help your side win the Galactic Civil War. Certainly, there are multiple factors involved in your effort. Ship-to-ship battles play a part, as does your pursuit of key objectives. But true success depends upon your ability to think big and move all the elements of your fleet in accordance with your goal. Succeed, and you may just happen to find yourself claiming the title of 2018 European Champion or 2018 North American Champion. As one of these champions, you will have proven yourself just the person your side needs to fight for its cause as the 2019 Star Wars: Armada World Championships—and to facilitate your attendance, you will receive a flight and lodging. Additionally, you will also win a first-round bye, as well as a reserved seat and free event entry for a guest of your choice. A Risk Worth Taking It goes without saying that if you attend either the 2018 Star Wars: Armada European or North American Championships, there's a chance you may lose. Your ships may be destroyed. Your fighter wings obliterated. Your objectives left unclaimed. You may fall short of your goal, and the Rebellion or the Galactic Empire may suffer as a result. But it also goes without saying that if you do not attend, you cannot claim any of the prizes at stake. Only the attendees put themselves in contention for these exclusive prizes, and only the attendees will enjoy the events' spirited games and camaraderie. In the end, there's risk involved in these tournaments, but it's a risk well worth taking. Every great fleet admiral knows when it's time to put everything on the line, and with everything at stake at the 2018 European and North American Championships, you can expect to see plenty of daring fleet admirals aspiring to greatness. Will you be one of them? You can find event information for the 2018 European and North American Championsips at the UK Game Expo and Gen Con Indy sites. Discuss this article in our forums!
