Spring Kit Tournament

This past Saturday, Dice Age Games hosted a tournament with the new Spring Kit from FFG as prizes.  As I will be judging and not playing in the Regional tournament there in 2 weeks, I was looking forward to getting some games in.

It's Good to be Predictable

In a game like Armada you might think that it's good to surprise your opponent with unexpected tactics or combinations.  While that can be true, I have begun to find the power in acting in predictable and repetitive ways.  When I know my plan and manage to stick to it I make certain that my fleet performs the way that I want.  More importantly, with practice I am able to predict how my opponents will typically respond to what I do.  If I know what they are gong to do most of the time, I can plan a counter rather than having to react on the fly.

Looking For Correspondents

I've been on spring break for the past week, which is why it's been a bit quiet here.  Expect to start seeing some new tactics articles next week. 

We are now getting in to Regionals season and I am looking for some correspondents to report back on their experiences.  So, if you're a regular reader here at Concentrate Fire and you'd like to write a report of your Regionals experience, please let me know.  Other than reports of your games, it would be good to get your general sense of the fleets that our brought.  Rebel/Imperial balance, activation counts, squadron numbers, etc.  

While I will be at GenCon, I can't make it to Origins.  So, if you're attending the National Championships there I'd love to hear your experiences.
