Ok, so how about Mongoose just rush out all the waves whatever state they may be in? How many people would be sat saying "YEY we got our new wave?" Thought so, people instead will complain at the poor quality. Now personally I'm more than happy to wait for models to be released when they're ready a...

1)At least that is the rumor - US Army, and the Russians. 2)rumor is the apache was scrapped due to its devastating nature, and for the brits, and the supercobra is scheduled out the end of july, or august, depending on whenever the evil mongoose imps that control release dates give them to me. 3) L...

Oh, and TOS, you can't put IEDs on a technical. Superjaded tried that, and i allowed it, but the D10 damage it does to the surrounding units isn't enough to matter, and it just resulted in him blowing up a lot of technicals and killing a handful of infantry, but losing far more in lethality by losin...

I play USMC, and have other players who play EFTF, 2 PLA, MEA, and USMC. Of all those opponents, only the EFTF give the USMC a run for the money anymore, specifically when the USMC and EFTF players constantly take advantage of cover, and when point cost allows for vehicles. The MEA and PLA have a lo...

okay, I am all about units we can use... but like most stuff I have seen released by the big dogs at mongoose, this seems very shortsighted. Now, they do plan on releasing more units each month, and as these are third party models, nothing is stopping the US players from using the apache, nor are th...

Well, the reality is, Mongoose has made a great set of rules (not perfect, but then again, what is?) However, they also released models that, for the price, aren't entirely worth it. heck, buying force recon came out to about 4.40 USD after tax, and that is a bit rediculous for what it is. I have be...

nothing kills a challenger like a fleet of shadows. I used to think they were invincible, and then I discovered that nothing can scare a EFTF player worse than focusing your build on taking as many anti-armor weapons as possible - sure they can die, but a shadow firing from cover can only be hit wi...

Clicks on the bases area bad idea. But a disk, similar to the freaking life counters in a lot of CCG, specific to each unit would limit clutter. I am totally opposed to having it on the unit itself, but included in the box so it can be placed either off to the side or next to the unit (with the supr...

This isn't about how many shots the shadow should have, it is a general question whether or not we should have restricted ammo in a game that thus far only lasts a few turns. If so, shouldn't we have a way to track it that comes with the unit (Ideally, I see essentially a click-disk, as they are che...

Well, that was somewhat my point - if the game lasts so few turns, we don't really need limited ammo. However, if we have it, there are plenty of units that should have stuff like that (as much as I hate to say it as a USMC player, the shadow should have limited CKEMs). But, if we are going to have ...

Something that is most likely going to grind my gears...

Okay, I hate to say it, but I keep hearing a lot of ugly rumors about units with limited ammo. Now, for a realistic sense, that sounds like a great idea. However, in the world of battlefield evo, it brings some very interesting issues to light. 1) the game rarely lasts 8 turns, so limited ammo can b...

I gotta say, I like things to remain as accurate as they can, but the flipside is, it isn't totally unheard of to mount weapons on transports in war time or in specific situations. Adding weapons systems to transports definitely occurs, but really, criticism is what makes a game more realistic. I pl...

All i know is, I am happy i play marines, because that cobra looks mean.

I can't wait to use one to mow down everything like grass - now i just want to know the stats! (I know, I know, I am ever so greedy!)

Seriously though, I can't wait to see what the rest looks like!

"They used a different scale for the tanks!" So, if I want to persuade people to even try the game, I need to have an ...

Honestly, you can use cheese to counter cheese./quote] Yes you can, but aren't we back with Cordas and his point, why not actually fix the problem (assuming you think there is one) rather than try and work around it? I agree, but we also don't have the advance rules yet. For all intensive purposes,...
