Design challenge?

Postby mj12games » Tue May 02, 2017 3:46 pm

Mulling over some ideas for a "fleet design challenge", in which contestants are asked to design a fleet, developing X ship designs using Y parameters. We might then consider a virtual tournament or somesuch.

Would anyone be interested in such a thing?

I'm sure I am - I'd also love to just take the format and make my group play by it!

Okay, so I guess we need to start hashing out the guidelines.

Six ship designs, total CR <=2000.
Net tech level 0; you cannot have fighter TL <0 unless your ships have a Carrier total of at least 20.
No hull size constraints; everything is based on CR.

What else?

Oh, looks fun.

I'm wondering if you've gotten your signs backwards? Total CR is equal or less than 2000? (CR =< 2000). Fighters should be TL >0?

Oops. Edited to correct.

Fighters should be TL >0?

No, that one is right. You can't offset +1 TL somewhere else by taking a negative fighter TL unless you have significant carrier representation in your fleet.

So six different designs, not just a total of six ships?
