    I like sci-fi, specially Mecha-related and/or A.I. I have written some books about that

  1. The fleet managed to get a draw in two games and lose one game to aquans (was my first game against aquans and they have everything in favor to blast my fleet apart with mines) This fleet struggles against Relthoza and has little scatter broadside, so aquans hiding on gas clouds are extremely hard to hit and they mine you from there, damaging whole squadrons in one move. The scenario against aquans wasscalating engagement, so my tier 1 took its time in getting into combat (I should have taken Gnash kragg) and did little in that battle. However I have been told the carrier+gunships combo is a strong one and difficult to drop its combat efficiency. Thanks to the destroyers is easy to drop the PD from a big ship then follow up with a torpedo salvo from the Tier 1. It killed ba'kash quickly (with the weapons retracted!) and survided two turns of retholzan dreadnought onslaught. The fighters also made a ship to explode damaging nearby enemy cruisers (I choose them because the range the combo ships are supposed to operate). So that was my impression. I made this fleet because I was expecting a limited time between combats so I wanted fast kills early on, but the game had more time per match than expected and I found things go out of control when the enemy is closing to the fleet. The katar are good as damage sponges, very hard for their points. I also used thermal controls with them but did not capture ships as expected (maybe I had bad rolls, cant remember)
  2. Some ideas for SRS... 1) remove the possibility of losing an entire SRS token to asteroids. Make them have losses but not losing every craft in a failed colision check. I think it was silly in current 2.0 2) Ace figther and interceptor option. They re-roll colision checks and 1's rolled on PD and (in case of fighters) AD EDIT: regarding mines... I don´t like the mines to be removed from the game, but I don´t like the mines to be used as a dominant main weapon able to attack directly ENTIRE SQUADRONS in one go instead of individual models (and the lack of defence toward them) I think mines should be (only) for area control only, and I think the solution is the approach they had in Taskforce. They appear as dangerous area terrain that hinders movement and shooting. Another idea is to mix the mines with the "Ambush" token, you can hide some ships, or have some bluff tokens and hidden mines. THis makes mines a way to condition the movement of an opposing fleet (control) and not as the ultimate weapon to destroy squadrons.
  3. Thanks Frans @Fracas Its in my signature The gate of suns
  4. Thanks!
  5. Hi there! I have posted in my blog (The Gate of Suns) a battlereport that looks like the cover of the last edition of the Uncharted Seas rulebook (Ralgard Vs. Iron Dwarves) Go check and see what happened in that battle! Dan
  6. I hope they don´t wash out that from the next taskforce... It took me a week making those mines and they make good cover for the otherwise poorly defended Veydreth (who also can´t Ambush in TF) That's why I am holding myself of making new terrain until V3.0 is released.
