Thanks for another report.

Do you think the burn rpthrough lasers of the UCM were overkill? Would more mass drivers have worked better?

I think the shield tokens are for the defence batteries you can drop.

hm i am not sure.... with burn through you have less dice so if there are too many 1 and 2s ... its very bad!

but if you roll good its more DMG output much more



well your right, with the batteries i think...

Pandora's and most PHR Burnthrough Lasers are really swingy.

Just watched your latest one, Part 2 of the PHR Frigate Force vs UCM. Very nice. Looking forward to the next one! Thank you, again, for going to all this trouble for us! :D
I love my job (well, I love having a job), but a bad day of gaming beats a good day of work every time!

I was thinking in terms of cost vs overkill. A burn through can do to 6 damage vs 4 for the mass drivers. I think the frigates have 4 hull points (from Pictures form the pre launch). So I was winding if you could fit in more mass driver cruisers than burn through cruisers, allowing you to hit more targets


In the battle report you also mentioned how PHR bombers are better than UCM. Is this because you can get more of them or do the different races bombers and fighters have different to hit rolls?

Well

I always use the same Standard Fleets, so UCM was not prepared against Frigates.

Well if you think about max DMG of a Burnthrough yes it is overkill but the PHR have very good saves and and...

PHR bombers are better in states then UCM ones yes! The UCM are bottom of the line all other Factions have better bomber/fighter...
