I think you're forgetting that New Republic fighter wings are only 3 squadrons so if we take the Starships of the Galaxy Sourcebook number of 5 squadrons + 2 wings, that only comes out to 11 total squadrons.

I've always read that a NR wing is composed of 5 or 6 squadrons but look like I was mistaken. 11 seems not much for such carrier.

When you see the fighter complement of the Venator is 4/12 and that of the Endurance 5/11, even considering the quality of the NR fighters, it's not fair, particulary for a pop cap of 7. According to Cracken's Threat Dossier, the Endurance have two wings (12 squadrons ?) with one of Defenders and K-Wings (probably one group of 3 squadrons each) and one of snubfighters while Starships of the Galaxy Sourcebook quote 5 squadrons + 2 wings (15 squadrons in total ?) for the Endurance. I therefor think its fighter complement should be something like 6/12 or 5/15. I can understand why the Executor's fighter complement was upgraded compared to the lore but I don't understand that "downgrade" of the Endurance which should be one of the best ship of the NR. That's somewhat apply to Ascendancy as well.


There's even two origin stories that tells how Leia know and visited Crait... If interested, I've heard there's a guy on Twitter who list them.


Awesome news, I am very looking forward to it !

I'm not sure that's an entirely fair comparison.  Phantom Menace wasn't aligned with a newly blank slate expanded universe - most of the related media which followed that film's release was heavily influenced by or related to the previous nine years of world-building.

From a quick look at your list the only novels that don't directly rely on something that came out before TPM are the Bounty Hunter Wars trilogy and Tales from the New Republic, with the Jedi Apprentice series and Rogue Planet as tie-ins with the new movie rather like the "Journey to.." stuff Disney has done for both Force Awakens and Last Jedi.  There's a lot of young reader/young adult content in both lists (which I never read in the old EU anyway), and the games are much of a muchness for both (lots of movie tie-ins for TPM, lots of mobile/casual games for TFA).

That's the problem ! They only do complements to the movies, nothing original, nothing interesting,... It's not fair to compare good to bad but yet...

It's their choice to make it blank for creative freedom, it's their choice to not use their so-called creative freedom and always rehashing and produce unimpressive content.

The story group releases less books comics and video games because it is trying to keep a straightfoward canonity

And to say the least it's a big failure. Nothing changed with the "new" Story Group. Also I was not talking about quantity but about quality something the new EU is lacking. Here's the list of EU content besides the first movie of a trilogy :

We need to give this new canon a chance. We are talking 30 years of expanded universe lore vs about half a decade of Canon lore in the new canon. Good Star Wars movies, books, comics, and TV shows will have to come around.

I've compared on another forum the good content we had the two years besides TPM to what we had besides TFA... The comparison put to shame the Story Group Canon. You can take any period between 1991 (the start of a monitored coherent continuity which was nothing less than the curent Story Group) and 2014, that's better than any time period since the reboot (not to mention the rehashing, like Thrawn).


I am thinking of a system a little like the Eugen Systems games (Steel Division:Normandy 1944) where you create a deck of units. It's maybe possible to make an equivalent with a GC with each player have a limited pop cap and amount of money (which can't be augmented). Their planets allow them to built heroes and ships while they're not allowed to move (like what you do with Byss in the Shadow Hand GC) until a defined time (allowing them to built their entire fleet). That's just some ideas thrown to have short but intense games, but if we can have something with lore based fleets, that's even better !

Discussion, Suggestions & Feedback / Another idea for sort of skirmish

Hello guys,

I tought of a way to have quickly set up fleet battles. At the start you chose one of the pre-defined limited roster such as Isard's Bacta War fleet (Lusankya, 2 ISD-II & 1 VSD-II), Zsinj's Group One (Iron Fist, 1 ISD, 1 VSD, 2 Dreadnaught, 1 Carrack, 1 Quasar Fire & 1 Lancer), Solo's fleet (Mon Remonda, 1 MC80b, 2 ISD-II, 1 ISD-I, 1 MC80 Liberty, 3 Nebulon-B, 1 Quasar Fire, 1 CR90 & 1 Marauder), one of A'baht's task force, and so on with Thrawn, Ackbar and others. I think we can have more or less balanced fleet battles. I believe it would be nice to play that alone but also in multiplayer. Is that feasible and worth it in your point of view ?

Thanks ! As I have all of them, I will host up to now :)

Multiplayer / Sins' DLC
« on: December 28, 2017, 12:28:25 PM »

Depending with which of my friends I am playing Ascendancy, I had to deactivate DLCs to play and save games. Are we missing things playing without these DLC ?

I won't even go to the theatre.
I won't support Disney's policy on this type of thing.
Because they are going to do it unless ticket sales drop and they don't have money.
As long as they get money, we can say whatever we want, they won't listen because they see that numbers are up and nothing else matters to them.

I won't either.

The Empire was defeated in one year after Endor, then the New Republic was defeated in one hour during TFA...

I was sure it was about recruiting new soldiers (why would they need that Aqualish either way ?) but when they say they captured enough childs to reclaim the Galaxy... WTF ? Nobody suspected that ?

Just because TLJ needed that the good guys were on the run...

I believe you had to quite zoom to see the difference !

News, Dev Diaries & Announcements / Re: [Release] Ascendancy v1.1.5
« on: December 04, 2017, 07:00:30 AM »

Thanks for the hard work ! I have always thought the Venator was too powerful, particulary compared to the Secutor and Endurance. Also like other carriers, the Endurance should have the ability to increase its number of squadrons.

Ascendancy Tech Support / Credits lost with Daala
« on: November 23, 2017, 02:35:31 AM »

I had an issue multiple times with the IR. When I had Daala, alive and well, when I reached 10,000 credits sometimes, the 10,000 credits were removed from my total like to build Daala but as I already have her, the credits were just lost. Particulary painful when you want to build a regular Executor. Is that a known issue or is there another explanation ?


Thanks for the update and the hard work, this looks awesome !


The story is not bad but disapointing. It portrays some event of the Story Group Canon but there's few really new content (except the characters which are quite good).
