About "Hunting the Beast"

In this scenario issued from "Order of Battle", with the Tirpitz, you have opportunity to sink allied war ships as well as civilian ships from convoy. May we apply the campain rules about experience points for sinking ennemy ships ? If so, how much XP can we win when it's a civilian ship ? I suppose...

According to Wikipedia:

The player of the Japanese fleet can have the option to declare at the start of the game whether his ship is carrying Long Lance torpedoes.
It goes against the "fog of war". The other player should focus its shootings on the Long Lance equipped ships.

Re: Welcome to the Open Playtest

Well, I don't want to be insulting, but when I read all the comments, and all the questions about VAS II, it seems to be an untidy draft copy. I'll keep on with VAS I and OOB rules which seem to me to run well and to call for no question, just needing common sense. Even if the first rules system is ...

Re: Victory at Sea Playtesting - Basic Rules

hummmm, Nelson, Lion and N3 Classes are still over powerfull, is it a good idea to increase their armour to 7+ ? Remember, ships with small guns not gathered into turrets don't have the +1 to damage at long range, as far as they can shot at this range.

Re: Balancing VaS

Thanks for these informations, and excuse me for my poor english. 1) Speed over 7" The -1 penalty for targetting fast ships is the same than the -1 penalty for targetting at long range. Nobody complains about not hitting Battleships or Cruisers when at long or extreme range. Try this : if you need a...

Re: Balancing VaS

Hi, I'm interested in a debriefing. What scenario did you play ? What was the level ? How many FAP ? I never played US or Japanese navy. I played a lot of games with RN or KrM and I find the game well balanced. We decided to start a Pacific Campaign with one of my friends and I play USN. I just want...

Re:

If the Destroyer has the :sub-hunter" trait all subs can be detected at once - P18 "Long Range Detection" This is actually a worry - i only found one ship - the Fletcher Class Destroyer - that has this trait. Does this mean that no other ships can detect Subs until they have been revealed? I desagr...

Re: Selecting a priority level unit 2 levels less than the game

Take care With a War allocation POINT you can get 2 battle level SHIPS not 2 battle level POINTS, OR 3 raid level SHIPS not 3 raid level POINTS Example 1 war point gives 2 battle ships so you get 2 Battle SHIPS, OR 6 patrol SHIPS if you consider that it's converted into 2 battle points , you can buy...
