It was suggested that we deviate from the larger battles, and I heartily agree. We will try playing some 1-on-1 cruiser battles, taking it back to old-school!
Each player should pick a single ship, 150BPV limit (including refits, commander's options, drone upgrades, transporter bombs, etc.). The year is Y180. Since we are playing on a Sunday, we will need everyone to have their choices ready to go BEFORE game start time at 1pm. Do not tell anyone else what your ship and race choice is. We will roll to randomly determine who fights against whom. Allied battles will be considered training or simulator exercises, so we need not be concerned with what races we choose--even ships from from the same race may end up battling each other.
New players who may need some assistance with ship choices should e-mail me so that I can help.
