PHR vs Shaltari 1,500 - Careful Advance - Panther Watch!

PostThu Sep 29, 2016 6:11 am

Hey, Folks.

I just posted on my personal blog Part 1 of a text battle report of my game this past Sunday vs Major Awesome and his awesomely painted Shaltari.

You are invited to go check it out. I had fun writing it, and should be able to get Part 2 (the finale -- I think :?) finished tomorrow and posted up.

Enjoy! Please leave comments, either here or there!

:D

OK, folks, thank you for your patience! Part 2 is now up and ready for your greedy little eyes to devour.

Please, do, leave some comments, preferably there, but here would be great, too!

Nice bat rep! Looked like a good game. Interesting to see the Panther in action on a real table instead of theory. Any big second thoughts on it besides what you already stated?

Not really. I need to get more games in vs it before I can draw any stronger thoughts. I still think that its Reaction Fire is too good for such a high E weapon with 3 shots. But I don't think increasing its points is any kind of a solution. I know some folks think that the infinite range needs to be toned down, but I can't see Dave doing that given that the weapon is the same Particle basis that the Ocelot has. So I don't think it would ever see a reduction in Range, but you never know -- that could be justified as part of the "slow traverse", that while the Particle weapon still has "infinite" range being a beam, effectively it can't since it can't react as quickly as the beam itself. Dunno, just shooting from the hip here, but I don't think it will ever lose infinite range, but you never know...

About the only things you can change (one of them is all that's needed) are:
  • Infinite Range (not likely, as I mentioned)
  • 3 Shots (also not likely, since the model has 3 barrels, but you never know, 1 shot would be OK, but then it would probably need a decent drop in points, reducing it to 2 shots might be better)
  • 2+ Accuracy (I'd like to see this drop to 3+)
  • 3+ Reaction Fire penalty (I'd settle for seeing this go to 4+ so that it Reaction Fires on a 6+, but I think nerfing the 2+ Accuracy is better...)
Most of those I could see coming with a (slight*) drop in points, although some of them would be a smaller drop than others...

(* = This is very subjective...)
