Yes, be stronk

'Course

Right now I'm considering if it might be an idea to get rid of SF and only have the UGC, CRF and DD this game. Getting all the players into these three factions and changing the map a bit. Thoughts?

I'd rather cut down on the number of Admiral positions and fleets then exclude an entire faction during the test run. Having four factions around will keep a 2v1 situation from totally screwing the one.

Additionally having less fleets than potentional points of conflict would keep the Ministers busy and the game flowing dynamically - there would always be a incentive to move instead of waiting.

Re: Forum Test Game - Rules and Sign up
Just a thought, but maybe we could ask the Admins to set up a 'highlight' announcement (for a forum game beta test)? That might bring in some new players, who wouldn't have checked the subforum otherwise.

I realise this comes with other problems of its own, but it might fill up those empty admirals' chairs.

Aright, with the extra sign ups, probably won't have to resort to dumping the poor SF into the trashcan  (:

SF: 1/1 Headdie - 2/4 TheHound, X3N0-Life-Form
DD 1/1 Enioch - 2/4 AdmiralRalwood, Admiral MS
CRF 1/1 Lepanto - 3/4 Veers, Lorric, 0rph3u5

Re: Forum Test Game - Rules and Sign up
Awesomeness.  :D Ready for some politicking and battling!
"We have now reached the point where every goon with a grievance, every bitter bigot, merely has to place the prefix, 'I know this is not politically correct, but...' in front of the usual string of insults in order to be not just safe from criticism, but actually a card, a lad, even a hero. Conversely, to talk about poverty and inequality, to draw attention to the reality that discrimination and injustice are still facts of life, is to commit the sin of political correctness. Anti-PC has become the latest cover for creeps. It is a godsend for every curmudgeon and crank, from fascists to the merely smug."

Fun. It's what Wings of Dawn is all about. :nod:

Looking forward to playing and perhaps helping to iron out any wrinkles before the main game. :)

Re: Forum Test Game - Rules and Sign up
Can you explain potential mechanics, please?

The way I see it, if a fleet reaches Elite + Zealous, their potential is @ a total of 5, giving it +50% effectiveness in Dmg and Ev.

So, for every point of morale and / or experience a fleet gains, they also gain a 10% increase to Dmg and Ev.?

And I note that you mention 'maximum potential' in the rules, but cap it at 4. Does this mean we can only go up to +40%, no matter how maxed out the Morale / XP are?

Also, do the above percentages apply before or after the flat 5 Evasion bonus in an asteroid field?

The cap can be increased with research.

Rounded up, down, or nearest (with 5->up)?  :p
