Jackasses? You let a whole column get stalled and strafed on account of a couple of jackasses? What the hell's the matter with you?

In pairs on a single stand. That's an interesting design choice, and I wonder what the longer implications are.

Gotta admit, I'm a little disappointed - I had expected a more substantial announcement. (For both Armada and X-Wing)

Did they mention whether these guys are in Wave 3? Or are they a "mid wave" release like the X-Wing "Aces" packs?

Cool. Makes sense that wave 3 would shift gears and feature "target" ships, or ships that have a function other than fighting each other, in order to expand the objective possibilities for the game.

I'm glad they're not going the X-Wing route and just making up ships, or using EU ships to add even more fighting possibilities. There are so many ways to build a fleet already they don't need to clutter the game with 17 capital ships per side.

I think we can say pretty safely that this isn't the end of wave 3.

That said - not sure what the reason for the deleted parts of the image are. Maybe something from 'Rogue One' they can't spoil, yet?

Almost certainly something upcoming that they're not releasing yet. I think you're right that there's a good chance that it's something from Rogue One.

However, I'm noting the distinct lack of The Ghost here. Given that the Imperial Assault Carrier (with Agent Kallus!) is in this wave, I'd expect the VCX-100 to be there, too. So I bet there's a new fighter pack coming. And I would not be surprised if there are new ships from Star Wars Rebels in this wave, too. Maybe things we haven't seen that are in the last 3 episodes of the season?

Another point in favor of this being just a partial reveal...

These two ships are SWM18 and SWM19 SKUs. We had up to SWM15, before - that's the Raider. (SWM14 was 'Rogues and Villains', etc) Where are SWM16 and SWM17?

Flotillas, take ramming damage but dont give any out. Other than that theyre normal small ships.

If these are the only two expansions this wave, I have to admit, I'm disappointing. As promising as these two expansions appear to be, I was expecting at least one more expansion per side.

And I'd hoped they would go further into Legends before cutting into Rebels... but oh well. I'm probably in the minority on that one.

This. This proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that there will be two more ships in the wave.

What if they had originally planned for 4 ships in Wave 3 but then changed their mind and "revised" Wave 3 to be only 2 ships, saving the remaining 2 for a Wave 4?

Could also be there's stuff from "Rogue one" in the wave which may not be revealed yet.
The rest of the wave would then follow Q4 2016 or Q1 2017 after the movie.

Or Disney made them scrap two ships they planned on releasing and they just never adjusted the numbers.

Could be. But feels more likely that Disney would have said "no - not yet, release news on these other two later this summer".

You'll recall that interviews with FFG's X-Wing crew mentioned that they *right now* (well, at the point of that interview) have more information on 'Rogue One' than they did on 'The Force Awakens' at release day. So Disney seems a bit more free with information on the 'anthology' stories, which may well mean FFG got enough information to make some models before the official product release cycle kicked off.

Not exactly what I was anticipating with Wave 3 but after reading the description and the explanation of the capabilities of the Flotilla, I think it will be fun and provide some strategic decisions when fleet building. I hope the cost of fielding a Flotilla is low enough that the benefits outweigh the sacrifice of ships/squadrons/upgrades with more punch.

Has anyone any idea what the point cost of Flotilla will be?

Yes, but I have some gift cards and credits allocated to board games burning a hole in my pocket, and have found little else besides Armada wave 3 to spend them on. I could use another MC30, I guess...

Probably GenCon. That would make the most sense.
