Somebody suggested such limitations be for campaigns, not pick-up games, and I have to agree with that idea.

The above post is my personal opinion; I do not work for ADB or Mongoose.

This is a minor point but one that I shall make, while doing fleets I sometimes have some points left over and quite often 25pts fits in nicely to that, so I whack the variant on for the extra phasors and command because I have spare points. This type of thing is what happens in points based games because why leave yourself 25pts short of your max when there is the option to spend those points.

Maybe in a tourney, nowhere else. Plenty of other ways to field the ships you want to field. Proxies. Kitbashes. Starline 2400 minis. Illegal IP-infringing knockoffs from Shapeways or garage casters.

Good Lord, I would never sink so low.

...yeah, right :D

@Builder - that's fine. What I'm concerned about is whole flotillas deliberately constructed of command ships, simply because this is an abuse I've run across in the past, and currently, in ACtA there's nothing to prevent it (in the SFU, there *is*).

Well there is always the "See this is why I don't play wargames with you Rob." defense. I have a few people ay my local gamestores I refuse to play with cause they're "who cares about fun, these games are about winning at all costs." gamers.


Of course, that doesn't help tournaments, and its always nice to have things "official".
