    Hmm, hold on a minute here. I just realized I forgot to give Creuss their counter allocations from the previous Status Phase, because I failed to ask for clarification on the orders.

    @Brody, you said to allocate 1 counter to each pool, but you only had two counters to add during the Status Phase. Assuming that you would have preferred Tactic and Strategy pool (which I have added in), that would give you a current allocation of TP/FP/SP: 1/3/1. Let me know if this changes your action or allocation.

  • Zombie HeroZombie Hero Registered User regular
    For the record I was going to move my cruisers for an uphill battle in Jol-nar's home system. Didn't say as much because it required Jol-nar doing an action other than fortifying their home base.

    It remains a mystery why nobody has done anything about the Jol-nar all game.

  • Zombie HeroZombie Hero Registered User regular
    Fair enough, I guess.

    I feel like this makes you unable to do anything about the Jol-nar, and it wasn't like i had the GF to do any sort of damage to your home system. I fail to see the real penalty of allowing an activation.

    I'm pretty sure this leaves the table unable to do anything about Jol-Nar, now. Alas.

    I wanted a build activation before my remaining fleet got wiped and I wanted the resources on Arnor and Quann to do it with. Also,

    Round 6 - Battle at Sol Home System

    Combat Round 1

    Sol has 1 Dreadnought, 2 Advanced Carrier IIs, and 6 Fighter IIs.
    Arborec has 3 Cruiser IIs, 1 Carrier, and 3 Fighter IIs (carrying 3 Infantry).

    Geth roll 1d10t5+2d10t9+6d10t8 for Sol
    Geth roll 3d10t6+1d10t9+3d10t8 for Arborec

    Sol:
    1d10t5+2d10t9+6d10t8 4 [1d10t5=4] [2d10t9=4, 9] [6d10t8=9, 8, 9, 7, 1, 4]
    Arborec:
    3d10t6+1d10t9+3d10t8 2 [3d10t6=4, 4, 7] [1d10t9=5] [3d10t8=2, 4, 8]

    Sol scores 4 hits: @Zombie Hero, how will all the hits be assigned?
    Arborec scores 2 hits, damaging 1 Sol Dreadnought and 1 Advanced Carrier II.

  • Zombie HeroZombie Hero Registered User regular

    That's some good rolling

    Play Shields Holding
    Before you assign hits to your ships during a space combat: Cancel up to 2 hits.

    Was a retreat to the empty system not a legal move? I hadn't had the chance to look up the rule.

    Is capacity checked now or at the end of combat? If i blow up my carrier do I immediately lose the excess fighter?

    Capacity is checked at the end of combat, so destroying a carrier in the middle of one will not have any immediately detrimental effects.

    Okay, Destroy a Fighter II and my Carrier. Assuming nobody sabotages

    You can still throw your fleet at me through the wormhole if its any consolation.

    I think i ran the numbers and i had like, a 15-20% chance of grabbing one of your planets? It wasn't a high number, but worth a shot since my army is toast here anyways.

    The real thing i was trying to work out was how many GF vs. Fighters to take. Taking fighters would help the space battle, but i would have made it impossible to go into invasion outnumbered. I had to get lucky in a lot of places.

    The shields holding would have helped somewhat, but you are also likely to have a sabotage. Like, a longshot but if the game is on the line (and i suspect that it is/was), you gotta try. Better than 0% at least.

    You'd probably want 3 fighters at least to soak PDS shots. Space battle you'd probably take no matter what; I don't have anything in that system space that hits on less than a 10. I'm not sure you could keep it though.

    Also Play

    Direct Hit
    After another player's ship uses Sustain Damage to cancel a hit produced by your units: Destroy that ship.

    On the Advanced Carrier

    But that would leave me with no invading troops, accomplishing nothing. I think I was going to go with 1 fighter and 2 GF, which i think would maximize my chances. But the math isn't straight forward.

    Would have helped if you didn't have Tekklar Legion - N'orr

    Well, that's the other half. If i managed to take it with a single GF. I would get another through a tech, and then be able to build either 2 or 3 additional GF there, depending on when dacxive activates (before or after production). I thought it was possible to hold the planet for a single turn, although it would certainly be toast the turn after.
