but if i can`t recover with deep deployed carriers, shouldnt i be able to get onto the board to do so in the late game?June 1, 2021 at 8:37 am #185589
Its a trade off, you lose a small amount of recovery ability (remember you can only recover 2 flights a turn IF you use a scramble order & dont launch any flights) but gain the defensive ability of not being targetable except by enemy flights.
As per the WL FAQ, you dont give up any VP for being in Deep Deployment… so you opponent HAS to have bomber / Torpedo bomber / Dive Bombers & get them off the table to gain any VP off your Deep Depolyed Carrier.June 1, 2021 at 9:19 am #185590
I see your point, but i have to see that in a game to work out how this will affect the game, since i now have only the oneshot flights for combat and some dead points off the table. That might help in a victory point game since i wonder if someone brings enough flight firepower to destroy a halfway decent carrier?
Another question of our gaming circle is about tokens and the movement – tool for people, that dont have the 2 player startbox. Is there some shop to get those?June 1, 2021 at 12:31 pm #185593
you can photo copy /cut out the page at the back of the rulebook that has the tokens on…
Personally I’m using an old Dystopian Wars 45deg movement tool – doesnt matter what you use so long as it limits the turn of the ship to 45.
As for the other tokens they are just reminders, so a small puff of smoke or something like the BA or CS pin markers (the red & blue explosion markers) to put on the ship to remind you it has tokens and a small scrap of paper next to the ship card to keep track of damage / crits /weapon re-loading etc. should do fineJune 2, 2021 at 7:44 am #185597
Hi, thank you for your response.
I know that i could just copy the page of the book and cut them out but i like the feeling of somethin like plexiglass markers. For many players those things are comfort tools and with them the company has an additional side income.
Maybe i go and ask a lasercut studio to make me some.June 2, 2021 at 7:51 am #185598
ah been reminded… (take out the spaces….)

Just some house rules for people to look at based for a competative pickup game…

house rules document is a nice read, does assume you can actually get people to use something unofficial (this is a issue locally, hard enough to get an “official FAQ” used), and seem to make the game a lot better.
cheat sheets useful too, oh for games to have a very clear “turn sequence” (ideally with page references)
