Serious answer, fah! What does serious have to do with it? He's an ISA player, all their models smell of bovine excrement, every Centauri knows this. He should buy sweet-smelling Centauri models and join the glorious Republic as we take back the stars. Well as we narn like to say you an smell sweet...

Actually, you kinda did, and your presumption of knowledge of Ripple's fleet(s) --- yes, plural --- proves it. He is far from all boresight. There's Abbai, a big Brakiri contingent, a substantial Vorlon fleet, in addition to Narn, Drazi, and a budding Psicorps-EA fleet. He is FAR from without fleet...

Now that you finished padding yourself on the back, and reaffirming your own greatness, please recall that most people here have an understanding that this game has to maintain a balance between fleets. While i applaud your english skills comrade razin, the expression is patting yourself on the bac...

the gunship I would say is definately boresight. carrier not so sure, maybe but then I dont see why it shouldnt be. EA goes boresight upto war so ISA could too. victory should probably also be boresight on its nuetron lasers but wont go there with this ship :D This is why you dont write the rules :P

Combat is not equal sorry. And I agree 100% But we are playing a game :P The new FAP breakdown helps, but swarms still have an advantage over larger ships. I agree that it *should* be difficult for large ships to bore sight small fast ones, I would prefer an SA that was more reflective a real time ...

@ Lokai i understood what you were sayin. I just disagree on the other part of the explanation. We agree but for different reasons. No worries. @ LEET, Lets look at this from a naval perspective. A group of smaller faster ships are alsways going to have an advantage over the larger less agile ships ...

I have to disagree lokai. Personally i just destroy the initiative sinks in the first turn or 2 until i have th numbers whitled down to what i need them to be and then i go after the big boys. Yes it gets dicey but as i said earlier most definitely not impossible. Ill refernce my statement that this...

Also where is the nerf. Its not nerfed its just a choice. You either fire one weapon at full dice or both weapons at half. Im not really seeing a nerf. Nefing it would be you only have beams now o you only have molecular pulsars now.

I am not sold on self repair for BS and WS... it pretty much just gives a WS 2 extra damage and BS 1 extra damage. Unless I misread the rules and the crew gets regenerated as well. I tend to agree with Triggy, its an above average raid level ship, but IMHO it is not an over the top kind. Boresight ...

Personally, Boresighting was a reason i played the fleets i did. I liked that it made me think and made it all the more sweeter when i defeated that guy with turreted or forward arced weapons. yeah it sucked whn i couldnt use my big heavy gun but eventually i got the job done. Im kinda insulted act...

Exactly! Random people have the advantage of doing just purely random things as well. Who would have thought that switching from your pistol to your rocket launcher while double tapping jump and firing at the boss would cause the game to lock up and delete your hard drive because of some odd overla...

The Fanheads would never get close enough. ask any of my centauri opponents what happens when they challenge my Narn. They are destroyed. Utterly, totally and completely. The centauri have been weighed, they have been measured, and the have been found wanting.

This is why mongoose needs more than just 3 playtesters for one. 3 opinions for a game of this magnitude needs a bit more of an opinion collection, and it needs to have varying levels of people with experience at gaming one and I think pople who actually have experience in feet type tactics to say w...

Then why place this post at all instead of just doing it? Because Matt said in the first post: This thread should be used for playtest comments - comments that arise from actually _playing_, not acting the armchair general! I haven't played with the rules, simply read through them and spotted some ...

Well Im glad to see that i spawned some discussion. However, (Pause for effect here) none of the questions were answered. Also For those of you who say the white stars are losing dice they arent. They only loose the dice if you use BOTH weapons systems. Something to think about.

White Star Enforcer

In the Play test Rules a mention is made about the white star enforcer. I saw nothing to give stats, ISD's, Pri level etc etc. Can someone clarify this please?
