Ramming Speed!

84 Comments

We find out how this ramming attempt has turned out as we look at the game between the PHR and the Scourge.

There's plenty of fire and shredded metal as the ships tear apart in space.

@panouil, With the exception of edge cases like huge ship formations firing as one and rams from PHR battleships you likely won’t be rolling more than 10 dice at a time.

I hope that Battleship was severely damaged before it decided to ram a cruiser

I really don’t like ramming being a regular space warfare tactic.

I like what I see about the ramming rules in these videos. It’s feels really like a desperate last act of heroism rather than just a rules element that can be used tactically.

Yeeaaahh! What I had hoped for. Ramming battleships are awesome. Too bad it was just a light cruiser. Still – that just got obliterated in a spectacular fashion.

That’s one of the those time where you just want to know when it’s over.

Ramming can be devastating!

It made me so happy when I first heard that ramming had been implemented in a more realistic manner than two ships colliding.

With Catastrophic damage ships with hull over 10 add +1 to their dice roll (p49 Catastrophic damage modifiers summary) this would mean that the blazing wreck result of the dreadnought would have gone up to a shredded result. The strix with its hull of 8 would be unmodified. Unfortunately this modifier is not on the QRF (Probably worth adding your own note)

the ramming rules are increadible and so well done even though Dave didn’t want ramming in his game, he was really against it for a long time

Ramming speed! Everyone to the escape pods, except you Porkins… you can steer the ship.
