Oh yeah, in BabesLite and BigBabes, the KB, and Ryujo TF, as well as the Enterprise and Saratoga TFs, start the game with reduced fuel.
The Dec 8 start scens have fuel reduced even more. John was annoyed at the carrier hunting nonsense, so hopefully this should put a stop to it. KB will have to refuel to go home. I know that KB refueled before the attack, but this is a game and abstraction is a wonderful thing.
It's that first turn 'magic move' where the KB, or anything else, can go anywhere and start fully gassed up and arrive fully gassed up, with no AOs to support it (except in the regular scenarios). And the AOs also have reduced fuel. The hunting radius is substantially reduced.
Thoughtful people will appreciate this. Gamey people will not. Oh well ...
Sometimes the lights all shining on me;
Other times I can barely see;
Lately it occurs to me;
What a long, strange trip it's been.
