PostForum: Federation & Empire   Posted: Sun Oct 22, 2023 2:15 pm   Subject: SIDS
I've just bought the 2010 version of F&E (I had the 1986 version) to scratch an itch and have an actual non-solo go at it with a local friend, who had the 1993 version.

Single ship games are probably not the best to see some of the weapons working well, in particular where you facing something with a device specifically designed to neuter said weapon. FC works best a ...

Any idea when requests for FedCom battle group thingies will be up for the next edition. I was a bit late seeing the last one.

I suppose I am confused, asteroids are all covered under 6B as just 'asteroids'. Why would you think the ESG rule just covers asteroids under part of that section, and if so why the part you are think ...

3 games stand out in my mind.

My pure drone orions vs Patrick Doyles Gorns in a tournament game. It went pretty much the full 10 turns, I expended probably 80+ drones without a single hit in the fi ...

So if the Federation can bring Gunboats to a battle without a tender, then why can't the Andromedans bring extra satellite ships? Because if I'm not mistaken Andromeda ships currently require a mothe ...

If you are into ASL then SFB probably isn't an issue, if you can get others to play it anyway.

Apart from the simpler system though the less obvious difference is that FedCom is better suited to la ...

Not really.

ACTA is a simpler faster game aimed at fleet level actions. A lot of ships lose out on tweaky little bonuses or banes in moving to that sort of system.

The CS move bonus really isn't ...

From what you are saying the problem is that the galactic players have not worked out the tactics to deal with all the odd stuff the Andros can do.

Been stuck in the house ill for the past several days and in the boredom I was just re-reading this. Not sure why I didn't respond at the time.

Perhaps the original intent of the phaser-G was more readily apparent during the Middle Years, in which Hydran ships had no hellbores (and fewer warp boxes) and Stinger-1s had no phaser-Gs of their ...

I'm also a big fan of FC and have played it massively, but don't like SFB even though I loved it as a teen, but it is way to complex for life as an adult.

I have also tried both starmada and ACTA ( ...
