When playing Fed Com do you play single ship duels or Multi-ship games?

If playing multi-ship games how many ships do you use?

Thanks.......................Doug

Either one. Any number. Use points to keep balance.

It all comes down to how many players are available at time of the game ---

Mostly one ship per player, a single player may run 2 or more to balance out the fleets ---

one ship if playing a scenario that's one ship per player.

If it's a pick-up game, squadrons or fleets only.

Both - depending on what the scenario choosen requires. sometimes it is 1 ship per player, sometimes up to 7 ships or so per player.

If everyone is more than 1 ship per player then we go fleet scale.

You can play the Duel scenario though.

Other than 1 Squad game, I've only done 1 VS 1

Whatever the scenario calls for. We play exclusively at Fleet scale and tend heavily to set-ups that involve sides around 200-350 points.

If "dueling", usually 2-5 ships per side, very occasionally 1-ship (if we need something super-fast). Often one ship per player with 4-8 playing in a different group I play in.
