[Armada|PBP] Game 1: Rift Encounter - Looking for Players

Well, okay, we're not going for anything quite that big ... Plus they haven't released the Executor ... yet ...

I'm looking to referee a play-by-post game of SW: Armada. I'm looking for up to 4 players, though I'll run for 2 if we don't get enough interest. :) Each player should build a 200-point fleet, following normal fleet construction rules - one flagship, one commander, no more than 67 points of fighters, no more than one of a uniquely-named card for each side - except that, for our first trip out, we won't be using an objective. That'll probably change if this is popular enough for subsequent rounds.

Normally, there is a lot of flexibility involved in Armada's movement, which would make it difficult to run a non-real-time game / PBP. To adjust for that, players will instead give general maneuvering directions, and indicate whether or not they're cool with running into things; I'll then move the ships to match the desired movement as closely as possible. As an example, a movement command for a ship might be, "Turn to port as hard as possible, but don't run into my Corvette," or for a fighter, "Move up-to speed 3 towards Cruiser A, but stop if I reach engagement range with an enemy fighter." Teams will decide amongst themselves what their activation order is.

Who's with me?

    Yep - play by post. I'll run the map and the stats, etc., y'all just submit orders. Should be easier to play away from a "real" computer.

    I want to sign up just so I can do it in limegreen and say, "Green leader standing by".

    Don't quite have the time right now to learn the rules and construct fleets though :\

    I mean, you'll probably have time [before we get started in earnest], and the fleet size per-player is a bit smaller than the normal fleet size. It's about what they recommend you start with if you're doing a "Starter Box-Only" fleet (180 vs. 200). :D


    @Fuselage

    There's no such thing as an "actual player." Sign up if you want to, man - you're half the reason I decided to run this right now!

    Alright, alright, you've got me! I prefer Imperial but if it means getting the requisite players I'll play either side. All I have IRL is Imperial stuff.

    Okay, with 2 Imperial players signed up, we'll call this "wargame" instead of a fleet action. :D

    Y'all should start considering your fleets. Again, the building rules are 200 points, no more than 67 points of fighters, and one mandatory flagship / commander. Here's the fleet-building links from the OP:

    I can switch to the Rebels to make it 1v1 (and make it easier).

    I'll check this out soon and figure out a fleet.

    Do 1v1 two imperials, then just pretend that all casualties are from accidental collisions and crossfire while trying to chase the Millennium Falcon.

    Yes, but you’re missing one key upgrade: you need to pick your fleet commander and assign it to one of your ships.
