Vassal Tournament

Hey everyone.  Biggs here, letting you know that I'll probably not be posting anything to spectacular here while the Fantasy Flight Games Vassal Tournament is ongoing.

On the other hand, I'm running the thing, and it has been a blast so far.  Much thanks to godofcheese my 1st round opponent from all the way out in Western Australia for an awesome game against a very scary list (VSDII x2, Gunnery Team & Screed + Demolisher / ACM / Engine Tech GSD).  I'm still not sure how I managed to keep my Assault Frigate alive.  So keep an eye on the tournament!  I'll have a writeup with my take on the whole thing once everything is said and done.

Playing Armada Online - How to Vassal

Edit (10/1/15):  Updated for more of the 2.00 information.  If I am missing anything, let me know in the comments, and I'll explain it as best I can.

Hello again everyone.  Today we are going to go over how to play online with strangers on the internet.  That's right, it's time to discuss how to play on Vassal.

First off you will need to download the Vassal Client and Armada module.  You can find the Vassal Client Here, and the Armada Module Here.  You will need to download both, and possibly download or update your Java client.  For me, it was fairly easy to install, but depending on your operating system, you may need to take some additional steps.

But enough about the install, let's play the game!
