Yes there was/is a wide veriety, but so far in the context of my formula there really isn't that big of a difference.... so far.

Like I said, I continue working away. When I have the first rough draft ready I will PM you and anybody else who would like a gander :)

Oh yeah,

I still need to finish aircraft and missiles first.

Unfortunately torpedoes are all to similar to give individual weapons to each nation (the alfa class can outrun its own torpedoes).

Played a 5pt armageddon aginst Minbari once... with shadows! They paralyzed one ancient vessel with beams, but the other two (and the Stalkers and Scouts) ripped them appart. By turn 3 there wasn't a single Sharlin left on the table (old beam rules) and the Tinashi's and Teshlans were taking a licke...

Ah yes points. Use numbers like 1500pts with ships costing 100pts or more. I don't like the straight points system (you always need a calculator). Perhaps a compromise could be used. Keep the current Priority system with the following "tweek". The better a ship is in the Priority level (like Raid) t...

okay, before you take the tiger... look at its speed and compare it to the speed of the Mimbo ships. BAD choice. Being a fighter, the Tiger moves after all the Minbari capital ships. If the Minbari want to run away from the fighters rather than get into position to do some harm to the EA capital sh...

Another option is:

I'd have to ask if your using the new beam rules and/or redundancies. At any rate, forget the explorer. Its just a big expensive giant bullseye that won't be able to shoot back (if the Mimbo knows what hes doin). Oracles are a good start. Long range beams seem like a good combo, but those stealth ro...

Pacific War: - In the original rulebook, Sherman tanks had a frontal target value of 8+ . This made it possible for a Japanese tank to score a lucky hit on the enemy. Now with the value of 9+ , only the most powerful Japanese AT guns have a slight chance of hitting the target. You should be thankfu...
