Catching Up With Richard - First Game Thoughts (UCM)

87 Comments

We step in and chat with Richard about how things are going with his first game using UCM.

Interestingly, this features a bit of a training exercise/blue-on-blue battling as his opponent is also using UCM!

One positive with the nasty explosions is it helps “solve” the traffic jam in the middle issue… by actively setting off chain reactions.

Well being a training exercise, the big bang wasn’t real, just this kind of thing would have happened. If it was against a real enemy. The Judge just sent them home.Your Out.

How fast was the game to pick up for all the players?

The basic rules in a game or two but after three I am only just starting to see the tactical depth and how much you need to plan ahead.

The UCM are my fleet of choice, I just love the look of them.

Argh! These chain reactions are just nasty. Apparently though this was even more dramatic and common during the beta (or so I was told).
Can’t imagine what that must have been like: just fireworks everywhere. So shiny….

I anticipate a lot of “training exercises” give the popularity of the UCM…. I almost feel like I need to change to Scourge or something just to help bring a bit of balance

Love the fact when you destroy a ship you can also damage other ships near by

It strikes me that there will be quite a few cinematic moments in this game.
