A Word from the Designer

Greetings, admirals!

This update to the Star Wars: Armada FAQ is a simple one. It addresses a few questions that have arisen, such as how to resolve the situation of a ship overlapping a large number of squadrons. Most notably, we’ve clarified that you can indeed wait to see the results of an evade token’s reroll before spending another defense token. Also, we’ve made a ruling on the interaction between XI7 Turbolasers and Advanced Projectors, opting to favor the turbolasers over the powerful defensive retrofit in the interests of future game balance.
