Wargame Vault updated version?

Postby epengr » Wed Jun 14, 2017 7:37 pm

Hello,

Wargame vault informed me, a couple of weeks ago, that there's an updated version of Unity available.

Is there an errata/change log somewhere? I've already printed the original version and I neither want to reprint the whole thing nor manually compare page-wise to find the changes...

Thanks!

The affected pages are pp.20 and 77 (removed "Dfn weapon firing defensively" penalty) and p.86 (renamed Arcturan ship classes).

Ah, so it is what was listed in the Unity Rulebook Errata post.

Thanks!

So, just to be clear:

A R-3, ACC 3+, 1/1/1 weapon with Dfn and Pnp, defensively firing at a fighter flight, would hit on a 3+, not 4+?

Correct. Defensive fire is a medium-range shot vs. a small target.

Originally, it was a short-range shot, with a -1 penalty. The final rule is essentially the same thing, but doesn't unduly reward range-based traits.

Okay, thanks. I think I had the older rules stuck in my head--again--because I've been making sure my Dfn weapons have a decent shot of hitting by giving them 2+ ACC, Dfn and Pnp, thinking that gave a 66% chance instead of a 83% chance.
