Honestly, the only time I got close to angry in this thread, was, ironically, when you accused me of being angry and not calm.mantlefan wrote:TheDefinitiveS wrote:I like it. Sign it off and move onto the next issue. It follows the KISS rules and gives the bombers more incentive to bomb.
People who say that 1d6+2 may be a little bit powerful , you have to remember that your bombers have to survive to hit it.
People who say that the bomber needs to survive to hit in a way that suggests that it is at all difficult for the bomber to survive are not being fair to the facts.
If an interceptor miraculously hits at it's severely decreased odds, the hit can just be taken on an escort.
AA fires at one as well.
It's incredibly easy to have the bomber survive because interceptors keep getting worse relative to A2.
Maybe you are one of those players who hits 50% of his AA shots. But please get real, you make it sound like it's so hard for bombers to live. For USA, it's incredibly easy to be overwhelming with these new rules if they are implmented.
I'm sorry but suggesting that bombers will have a hard time surviving with these rules is a joke.
Add that onto the +2 to the roll and the new damage rules.... Why are you so angry? Just talk it through. "is a joke" "not being fair" "maybe YOU are one of those players who hits 50% of his AA shots" - sarcastic. Calm down man. We're not screaming at each other... we're just talking here.
It's incredibly unfair for you to accuse me of screaming at people. I honestly do think that a player who hits way more AA than average would have a very distorted view of the reality of the situation.
I am trying to be clear that I am not at all on the fence about this being overpowered; I am 100% convinced that this will absolutely break the game in the hands of the USA. I am sorry if you have mistaken absolute clarity for anger. I am just talking as well, I am not accusing anyone of having some sort of attitude based, for some reason, on a total lack of usually appropriate evidence for a post being seen as angry (lots of exclamation points, lots of all CAPS sentences everywhere). I could say "Please conduct your thoughts about the game in a manner that is more appropriate for addressing the reality of the game," but get real means the same thing. It is not at all sarcasm. It means "be more realistic." It all stems from the very unrealistic suggestion that a significant number of bombers would die with these rules.
Anyways, my point overall is that this is FAR too powerful. It's not just a little overpowered. In the hands of the USA, bombers under these rules BREAK the game. (and that's an emphasis caps, not an angry one.) Bombers are harder to ever get to, interceptors kill a plane half as often, bombers do more damage, and the damage they do is FAR more potent.
