Re: [ALPHA] The UK in 4E is still a bit... problematic

<thread hijacking starts...> Fenhorn, Compass is due to reprint The Korean War shortly, I was involved in proofreading. Joe has made some corrections and clarification, but not that many. Be warned that Compass has decided to 'improve' the component for old people... basically enlarging the counters...

Re: [ALPHA] The UK in 4E is still a bit... problematic

Fleet series is excellent, Joe Balkoski, the designer did a really good job back in time. He is also working on a new edition, but his Korean war will be the first out. I see the UK more as an hub with possibility for some adventures, rather than a warzone. Basically if the entire world is a warzone...

Re: [ALPHA] The UK in 4E is still a bit... problematic

Fenhorn, what game/game series was? Just curious, I should have it in my thousand titles collection... :D As for UK, Not every country must have a war going on, just because it is WW3. Otherwise we end up in the silliness of the 3rd Edition... some targets would probably have been nuked, but not tha...

Re: [ALPHA] The UK in 4E is still a bit... problematic

Sure, you might need to work for 4-6 hours to find them, but then it's only minutes to track them over the subsequent passes. And from fire to arrival is under an; multiple estimates of 15 to 20 minutes for russian ICBMs. It does not work that way. The RORSAT was a strategic system to provide strat...

Re: [ALPHA] The UK in 4E is still a bit... problematic

Ouch... considering is not even clear if the PLA Strategic Rocket Force is capable to it now with their DF-21D... it was even more problematic at the time. First of all even soviet RORSAT Satellites had issues in locating task groups and their information was usually hours late, I think we are talki...

Re: [ALPHA] An attempt at summarizing the world building discussion

Vader timeline is quite sound. And moves the border to Poland. Otherwise, in my own Timeline (vey similar to Vader, but without fall of the Berlin Wall) the Pact attacks, get repulsed (not implausible with the 1988 onward correlation of forces), and then NATO start a counteroffensive. East Germany i...

Re: [ALPHA] An attempt at summarizing the world building discussion

Nicholas, I think you are wrong here. First of all Czech and Poland were actually producing heavy equipment, and even selling it back to the Soviet Army, so it is difficult to see them underequipped. Also the Czech were closely integrated in the CGF and had an offensive role. Conversely, you had two...

Re: [ALPHA] The UK in 4E is still a bit... problematic

pardon me of being thick... but of all the gibberish in the UK Setting, I found no issue with Charles, if his mother has indeed die, being proclaimed King. Technically the PM and the rest of the Cabinet are royal ministers... Said that there will be a PM in charge. But RAW in the Alpha, things come...
