Yet as a Drazi AND Narn lover, I am reluctent to do anythign about it in my game group. Me and a buddy had a Narn vs Drazi support raider ...

Now this is a hell of a good ideal.
I play only campaign games, but I have re-written the Shipviewer to include all Tournament List changes, and have adjusted variants to suit. So I use both...

I picked the Nova cause of my success with them. In a Raid level battle you give it the "Close Blast Doors" Order and sally out into the middles of the enemy fleet and act like a floating fortress. Sure you can only fire one weapon system, but you only have one! And its a damn good one at that prior...

Do you guys live int he same gaming world I do? When I bought Call to Arms i thought it was incredible value. A great game system with counters to get me started so I don;t have to run out and by models till I know what I like? My only dissapointment was for that price a series of special order mark...

I kind of thought they were right. And it was the way I have always played it anyways.

But this was an important dissuccion cause it sounds like you ran across someone that played it the other way.

Glad that one got cleared up fast.

Fin man makes a good point. You are closer to the develops then most of us so perhaps you are in a position to know that its "bad wording" I have to admit I never noticed that before, but for people that are pickign up the rule book and playng byt he letter this is correct. The ancients have a speci...

I am more interested about the game where two fleets struggled to beat the Minbari ganging up on them, and it sounds like the drazni where lucky with there stealth roles. I have not had time to do anymore playtesting, but I think its becoming clear that Point for point Minbari ae not on equal footin...

I agree. As far as shadow vessels tearing through Narn ships in single shots.. I kind of just figured in my head it was a first and surprise encounter and the narn were just not at all prepared for that kind of attack. I am not so sure the shadow are out of balance. In the series the shadows kicked ...

Ont he other hand for those (like me) still looking for ways to even the odds it may help to see whats out there. Well for st...

ohh and 5

and another reaon for spreading ut your Minbari fleet. If you fleet is close together a swarm of fighters can get among your ships and start scanning.. and they get to pick which ship is best to bring into line. But when you fleet is spaced apart, the enemy has to commit where the fighters are going...

I agree. I will sit this argument out and playtest a ton the next few weeks. I read the S & P article. I feel it was a well written piece of work. An excellent refference guide for newer players dealing with the Minbari. This is important cause its the new players facing Minbarit hat are the ones th...

On tactics

The comment I have to make about "superior tactics" overcoming Minbari, is that the Minbari players can have good tactics too! I agree that a so so player with Moinbari will get beaten by a better player using a fleet well, but this don;t mean that the Minbari are fine! What happens when the Minbari...

Excellent post freak

Yeah I agree, nt the first gaming system where that has been scene. Look at GW fantasy battles were the designers build certain units to serve a "fluffy" role in a certain army list, only to have the tourney powergamers discouver the "great buy" and max the army arround the "broken" unit.

Running a tourney...

Yes thats an interesting problem. Tournements... Cause players are almost forced to take lots of scouts and build there fleets to face Minbari, cause they are clearly the favorites. I have given some though as to how to run a toruney though. Make players bring a "fleet rooster" of 10 battle points. ...

My experiences with Minbari

I poll answered Minbari too hard. And in my gaming group I am the Minbari player... and I am feeling guilty playing them and am proxying them as Drasni... no really. First point I want to make. I greatly commend Mongoose for being so involved in this discussion, although some peopl may not be gettin...
