I feel very strongly that the IPG should give *some* defensive benefit from direct fire. If it does not, the ships will not fly as intended.

I agree that EM is not the best solution and I am glad you are amenable to some other EW-like benefit. I offered the EM idea as a start point to a dicsussion, knowing S+S's intent to keep FC on the simpler side.

I much prefer something closer to the SFB version and am willing to do playtest work on whatever we might propose here.

As of now, they are just another sort of Fed, and that is NOT the intent of their design.

junior,

I fully understand your concerns. I am sure that such concerns are a huge part of the reason that particular function of the IPG was left out.

That said, there is a huge difference between the IPG's EW effect and ECM drones. In my opinion, the IPG's EW effects are more of a direct effect, like seen with EM or stealth, rather than a side point, like the possibility of ECM drones or the EW benefits of fighter, plasma, and such.

Also, it is important to note that this is just an initial idea I had that has NOT been vetted by Steve. So, it could be a viable idea, or it could be still-born. This is just part of the discussion.

Is this the right place to suggest ideas as we play them, or should I start a separate thread?

I suggest that we keep this thread on topic. So, please just create a new thread to discuss the other issues.

But, it will be good to see more playtesting with the Vudar.
