Thanks for posting. It is nice to see something up here - I've got used to everything being in FB now.

_ucm_1250 bomb would be fun for a game but as the name suggests so heavily skewed towards bombardment I can't imagine it winning any games. Just not enough to win the space fight. You need to rely on our bombers and 5 Vancouvers in the same battlegroup to me negates one of their advantages - of having a low SR launch group that can shake off their spikes before being hit.

_ucm_1250 allrounder is more of a normal list. Main comments are having two San Franciscos in the same group seems to be a big constraint in terms of where you can deploy your bulk landers. Also I would be tempted to try and squeeze in another Kiev because they are so good. Not done the maths but gut feeling is
(1) drop the Beijing
(2) then split your two San Franciscos into two battlegroups.
(3) With the points saved you could upgrade the St Petersburg to a Perth and use the extra points for some extra destroyers. Maybe 1 extra Vancouver so you have enough launch to achieve something with it (but still keeps a low SR) and a Kiev

I know this your list was before the beta changes but I must confess I want to give Havana destroyers a try now. 3 of them seem a nice group to counter my nemesis of Scourge battlecruisers.

thx for your input

well i want to use a battleship, ist cool and well okay ingame

for example a Tokyo costs me 240 (with AV4) and a Perth/Avalon costs me 235 (with AV4)

so ill get +4 hp better CAW and double secondary Guns as well higher scan and the option to bombarde as well, sure lower move and weaker BTL but i do think thats ok as exchange for 5 Points ;-7

i am not happy with the battlegroups, but well there is not enougth Pathfinder Light B-groups to select...
