And when firing at PA panels, you get one burn through point per ten damage points if your volley has any kind of disruptor fire added in there, too.

Not applicable in this game (Fed vs Andros), but may be handy to remember in later battles as forces are combined.

Turn #2 of this game is also getting interesting. A full update will have to wait for the Turn 2, impulse 4 break; but here's where the units currently are:


I can't wait to see where this one goes next...

Decided not to wait until the Impulse #4 break as both ships have fired most of their weaponry:
Here's where the ships are at:



Here's the SitRep (Situation Report) for Impulse 2 and 3 of Turn #2:

Just sent my impulse 5-8 in. Definately getting interesting now.

So far the turn has not gone as anticipated.

From what I can gather a comms error (SOP not filled out as desired at the Fed end) resulted in the NCA not being where I expected, to my benefit. However, another comms error (re-attaching an old SOP at the andro end) resulted in a failure to aim at power when it would have really hurt.

That's been the most interesting aspect of FC PBEM (at least to me) so far. The extra level of... umm, err, something! in the orders/movement process.

In a face to face game, it's easy. You see the opponent move, you respond. In PBEM - you have to anticipate what he's doing and then issue orders to a sub-ordinate that are clear enough to understand, but detailed enough to accomplish your goals.

It can be quite like the fog of war from time to time. And that extra little bit of uncertainty in how your orders will be carried out only provides another challenge.

On the other hand in face-face it is more likely you can pull of certain tactics as the pace doesn't really allow so much analysis of what will likely happen if x, y or z, more likely you foresee x and y but miss z in a faster paced face to face game.

Turn #2: End of Turn requests sent to players. Once they have confirmed the accuracy of my recent update (it has been a while, after all... Wink ); I'll post updated maps, SitReps, and ship cards here.

Real life situation at work improving, so we're back up and running.
Both players accelerated during Impulse #1 of Turn #3.
Currently awaiting rebid orders prior to processing movement.

Updates to follow soon.

Unfortunately, Matt's real life situation has suddenly become more complicated and he has conceded the match to Lee.

Lee will be moving onwards to Round Two.
