Burger's ship viewer (ACTA)

Hello all,
My ship viewer is still alive! It has moved to a new domain name: http://www.ibisfightclub.tk
No I haven't moved to the South Pacific (I wish!) but these guys offer free domain names.
Enjoy!

Edit: Thanks Adrian, URL fixed :)

Re: Ancients

Traveller, I would say yes it applies if he moves into you after you've moved, and yes he powers down your flight computer. Triumviron I seem to remember asking this a long long time ago, you may be able to dig it up if your forum-fu is strong. I think the general consensus was that if you tried suc...

Re: B5: Shadows' Anti-Fighter Defences

Oh I don't know about that. I've seen tournament games where Shadows / Vorlons have kept their distance until the last few turns, then come out of hiding, blapped a couple of enemy ships, and won the game. A bit frustrating for the opponent but quite ancienty behaviour really. As with other actions ...

Re: B5: Shadows' Anti-Fighter Defences

Shadows best fighter defence is shields. If there's too many, SM and self-repair :D
The Shadows biggest advantage is their ability to not take a fight if they don't like the odds.

Re: potentially dumb B5 ACTA question...beams hits on hull 3

Mini beams (and beams) are already unbalanced against certain ships/races, due to the fact they ignore interceptors. It's all part of the paper-rock-scissors that is ACTA. Sometimes you are the hammer, sometimes the nail. If you know what your opponent is playing then you can adjust your race/ship s...

Re: Legendary Tactician 2x SA move....

Hmm, sorry to disagree with Greg, he is usually right :) Using any special action prevents launching of fighters. (p30) "Scramble Scramble" is an exception to this. (p15) However IJP or AJG (or any other SA) are not exceptions to this... So if you're opening a jump point or activating a jump gate th...

Re: potentially dumb B5 ACTA question...beams hits on hull 3

now was that fun or stupid? depends what side you are on... Not really, I don't find it fun to utterly obliterate my opponent thanks to some lucky dice rolls. I find it fun to utterly obliterate my opponent using superior tactics and strategy. :D The optional beam rules are far superior IMO. You st...

Re: Tips for playing Drakh in campaign.

Yes fighters are a great weakness of the Drakh, you need light raiders to get rid of them.

Yes, the Drakh player gets VP's for "killing" fighters with bits of his ship.

Re: Tips for playing Drakh in campaign.

I have been wrong many times :D Yes Raiders do regenerate in a carrier, this was confirmed by Matt way back when. Follow the normal rules for how many fighters regenerate in a carrier - it's been a while so I can't remember off the top of my head :) Another trick, you can squadron Raiders in a carri...

Re: Tips for playing Drakh in campaign.

Raider swarms are the way to go. Good to have a mix of heavy and light. Heavies on their own will die to fighters, and lights on their own won't have the punch to take down big ships. Unfortunately you can/t close blast doors due to only having one weapon, but you can concentrate all fire. Remember ...

Re: Drakh SHip - Burger

Above answers are correct as confirmed by Matt a while back. You can squadron docked Drakh ships up before the game, and when they launch must either stay within squadron range of the mothership while the rest of the squadron is launched, or leave squadron. An interesting facet, only ships that are ...

It does not say it anywhere. But there are no rules which allow you to do what you are asking. Therefore you cannot do it.

Re: B5:ACTA Linked Targeting Admiral trait

Admirals offer some nice bonuses but are hardly ever worth the points they cost.
2 Apollos is always better than one Apollo with an admiral.
The exceptions would be admirals that give fleet-wide bonuses rather than only affecting the ship they are placed on.
