Alright, I'm sure EVERY member of the CMAC saw me coming from a mile away and tried to sandbag themselves in... but... I'm here.

Given the fact that Episode VIII is going to be very war-based, I need to ask the question... "What is the CMAC going to do about the battles?" I personally am involved in two on VII at present, and had to wait a week and a half (alright, I might be exagerating but it feels like it) to get the results of one round. If the entire galaxy is waging war on one another, it is going to put a tremendous amount of pressure on the Battlemaster(s).

I have already made my advisements to Nevin and Ams over MSN, but I have yet to receive an official resolution to this particular problem. I am hoping that, by posting this, more attention can be paid to the situation and a solution be put in place in time for the war.

Thank you all for your time and consideration to my requests and concerns.

Not to mention the reason things aren't getting done as fast is because I'm pressured to get school work done and that everyone has been working on VIII.

I understand that, and I can certainly sympathize with the issues at hand, Nevin. However I joined the board around All Hallows eve last year and have yet to see a full battle round take less than a week. I will lend my assistance anywhere I can to ensure that things can happen more quickly, but I believe it is somethign that should be resolved quickly so that it can be in place by the time everyone starts kicking each others asses.

We're well aware of the problem, and are trying to find ways to fix it while still trying to maintain a realistic feel to the system, such as ships only being able to launch a certain number of fighters at a time, fire at targets only using the weapons facing that target, etc...

Also, you can't forget that the focus of this RPG isn't the battle system. It wasn't the focus of VII's either. It's character development.

Only thing is, you can't very well develop your character if they die in a battle that went poorly.

Exactly. Need we another debate over the balance of Character Development and Strategy in the RPG?

All I'm saying is that the reason battles are lagging on VII is because there have been higher priorities (designing this site, endgame plot, beginning VIII plot)...

Not to mention folks that take forever to get their order of battles in. We can only do so much until we have those in our PM boxes.

And I have to agree with Cray - we're trying to balance out the system so it's not so much of a workload on us as well as trying to keep it as realistic as possible. It's no easy task and it's disheartening to see all the complaints when we're honestly trying to do our best. I guess all I can say right now is to be a bit more patient and bare with us while we try to put something together.
