Taking the Station - Let's Build to Win the Multiplayer Scenario

Finally there's more than 12 ways to play Armada!  FFG has released a new alternative game scenario replacing the standard 12 objectives and 400 point fleet building of the head-to-head game with a 150 point free-for-all.  The new objective - bring an objective ship to the station, placed in the center of the map.

Well, that's all well and good, but how to we maximize our opportunities to win the objective, and take the station for ourselves?

Commander's Guide: Gozanti-Class

Wave 3 is about support ships - nothing too splashy here, but we've already talked about how just these two expansions will shake up the meta, introduce new Commanders and Officers, and improve our Bomber's efficiency.  Now we are going to talk about the ships themselves.

First will be the Imperial Gozanti-Class Cruiser, made famous by the Star Wars: Rebels cartoon show.

And we need to be ready to integrate them into our fleets quickly, as they are due to arrive in the 3rd quarter of this year!

Wave 3 - Commanders

Now we finally know all the upgrade cards that we will be seeing in the newest expansion, including our two new Commanders.  Both are defensive commanders, as opposed to the very offensive focus we've seen in Wave 2.

Bomber Command Center - Running the Numbers

Bomber Command Center is set to come out as a new fleet upgrade card with Wave 3 - though we do not yet know if it will come in both the Gonzati and GR-75 Transport, we do know a few things.  Namely, we know it's cost (8 points) and it's effect:

Let's examine it's effect, and which bombers it works the best with.

Editor's Note:  Some of my numbers (namely anything with 2 dice) is wrong, because I calculated it as both dice being re-rollable.  That is incorrect.  The actual numbers are close, but not quite right.
