Supership-wise, Cray, I PMed you about something I think is unfair :P

EDIT: Actually, hopefully it won't matter.

And Ams, I'm afraid we're making you feel picked on, but it's not about Akulas, it's just that the design process seems a bit silly if these sorts of things get accepted. No one's blaming you, Amiscle :wink:

Yeah, Alexus...I saw it and I (pretty much) agree with you. CMAC will talk about it and I'll get back to you.

I'm not taking a 'side' here, I think with or without them, the game can be moderated... just obviously with new ships, requires a new system. And I think once CMAC has established an either improved battle system or an entirely new one, we'd be in business.

And next time, include a poll with more logical and less offensive options.


Quotes Thanates, "Your presentation was, as I said, "I don't like it. Make it better."

Not true, I simply stated that your poll choices were illogical and offensive towards those that may or don't mind superships. "I have one and I'm not getting rid of it." Is negative, at least I think so.

And I DID state an alternative, an improved battle system or an entirely new one. If we're going to have superships, I think we should compensate for them.

The problem with proposing a new battlesystem, Arlyn, is that it has already been done no less than five times, and each time was not able to yeild a fruitful result. And as i stated before, I'm doing the next-best thing in trying to resolve a board-wide issue of "superships" that came into play because of that battlesystem and the need people felt to compensate by designing huge ships.

I would like to, once again, point to Ferdinand Cartos and say that if you know how to use your ships, you can do more than you ever could with blindly flailing an Apex around. It takes imagination, which is why we are at this board in the first place... do not keep your characters in too narrow a focus, broaden your horizons to encompas all aspects of the game.

Some people would sooner kill their characters than get involved in battle.

Then I guess making you a Grand Admiral was a bad choice in Rebellion heirarchy, no? :P

'twas meant more as a joke than anything else, but I know what you mean even if I don't necessarily agree with it. *hides his posts as virtually every character he has*

I think the battlesystem does need revamping, but until we come up with a viable option we should come up with a way to make it liveable.

I agree. The battlesystem was, in part, what caused Han and I to be driven insane and get the truce in the works. I think the biggest problem is, and I mean no slight to Moff, is that when the specs were created we went off of many "canon" resources. We also cross-referenced that with prices of ships found in books and other media. That gave us a very ununified economy situation, which was based on every canon figure available. These canon figures, when compared with each other, are all extremely different, and I think Moff can agree with me on that.

And I don't subscribe to the Wedge Antilles rule, which bugged a lot of people. :p

A single fighter can destroy a capital ship provided the pilot is Corellian, Alderaanian, or a Jedi, and the capital ship belonging to a dictatorial regime. :p

Lol, yeah that's a shitty rule. Stupid happy endings...

It would have been much more realistic if Skywalker had either died or turned to the dark side IMO. And every single member of the Rebellion should have died horribly slow, painful deaths.

PS: I voted yes, piss off the superships.

Heh, makes me happy that the battlecruiser I submitted has the bridge at the center of the ship, deep within a heavily armored and shielded hull. Nothing less than a mortal blow could stop it.

My position on superships is that I think it's a necessary evil. As long as people throw around several thousand ship fleets the superships can be a nice counterbalance to that. I also think they should be very limited in accessibility which from what I see, they are.

As far as I know, there are only two fleets in this game the pass 1,000 ships... and even then, one of them I know will be engaging in small chunks.

I prefer quality in quantity. ^_^

For example, a cross between the leet-ness of the King Tiger tank and the mass-production of the M4. :p
