MBT repointing project
« on: May 10, 2017, 11:31:36 PM »


MBT Day

Here are some notes on my cure for MBT rarity. The plan is to have an 85 point event using these point cost changes. Phil used the TY company from the book as his 100 point benchmark. It had 10 M1s for 80 points. My idea is to fit that into 85 points by discounting only the MBTs. Then, apply the same proportion across all MBTs.

10 M1's at 80 points needs to be 10 at 65 or 6.5 each (a 19% decrease)

I realize this may adversely affect the medium tanks, but their cost changes will get tested next.

Please see the changes and tell me what you think? Would you like to do some testing?

First test tonight was promising.

Jerald and I played an 85 point test. His force had 7 M1s. I played a Soviet "Spamdrel" list with only 4 tanks and 32 spandrel launchers.

I defended in Counter Attack and we officially had a draw, but played on after time and the Soviets won. Both of us agreed that the dice actually favored the US, and that it seemed very balanced to us.

Why not increase the cost of ATGMs?

I think this would cut down on the amount of crap on the table.

By lowering the point level and the points on MBTs, we get double reduction. Its counterintuitive perhaps, but getting a greater tank ratio reduces force size.

Also, their are just too many systems that have missiles. It's a smaller change this way. I think this will result in a mix more like what Phil was actually aiming for with the least changes.

Second test, similar forces, and night time. Jair and Felipe with US attacking in FW. Soviets won 6-3.

So far, no problems.
