Still hoping the PDF will be available by the end of this month, with print copies available shortly thereafter.

Really looking forward to Unity. AE really sat well with our group, until we got carried away with the min/maxing. Based on what I've read in the other thread, seems like we won't have the same issues with AE, but still will have the flavour!

Nova was smooth and streamlined, but ultimately I think its best served in Grand Fleets - a game where the weapons/defenses are similar, but where there is a great number of combat modifiers. The way the combat effectivness of each weapon is distilled down to a couple of parameters makes it easier for Captains to make decisions.

For space games the decisions are often based on where there are degraded defenses to exploit or weapons that counter certain types of defenses (or trying like hell to destroy a ship that is currently exploiting those on your own fleet!).

I like having the defender choosing where to apply the weapon damage - simplifies things!

I know I did them for Nova (2nd page, Bourbaki Basin Nova at the time of this post), and will most likely do them again for Unity.

I actually got out of Starmada for a while, yes the whole Armada/Nova thing actually divided me internally. *hangs head in shame* I've actually been dabbling in other systems. But I have hopes for Unity, and as long as Daniel doesn't tell me no, I'll crack open my files and convert them once again.

You are killing me with these previews, dude!

What do you want from me before you'll release the rulebook. You already have my soul.

What more do you want!

TELL MEEEEEE!

After witnessing a few MJ12 reveals over the year I can honestly say I don't think Dan can help it...He's just a natural born tease :lol:
