I am tired of waiting and seeing that every time Marshall posts anything he is swarmed with requests to change map, counters and unit names to please peoples opinion what city was most important and help unimaginative players get the right historical feel of naval combat.



I agree.

Aren't you glad that you gave some information out Marshall. Look at all of the nice conversation that it spawned.



I think that opposite. The more whining the more members are sticking up for him!

Thanks for putting out info Marshall. Keep the flame-retardant suit on!

When I look at the EiA fleet counters, I don't see any depiction of what each NSP is, be it SoL, frigate, brig, Yamato, or otherwise (and I even used a magnifying glass and a pair of tweezers). So, I guess what I've been saying, then, is that you can call 'em whatever you want, but at this scale, all they are is a strength point. The terms "heavy," "light" and "transport" relate to function, not ship type. In any event, what difference does it make? This is EiA. Let's use EiA terms...


while the counters do not, the rules do define what each SP is:

quote:

and each "ship" equivalent to 1 ship of the line or a number of smaller ships of approximately equal force.

Nothing to the point. Basic EiA merely says that each naval SP can be anything, including ships of the line "or a number of smaller ships." How does this supposedly differentiate which ship type each SP is?

Moreover, this game will base its naval rules on the EiH functional categories of heavy, light, and transport. So what do "ship of the line" and "frigate" have to do with it? Of course, "heavy" connotes "heavy ship types" and "light" connotes "lighter ship types," but the game's terminology is not couched in the expressions "ship of the line" and "frigate."

Now, I am finished talking about this. I have no idea why three or four of you have decided to make a career out of arguing with me about this stupid little point, but not one of you has yet to make the slightest fricking amount of sense.

So go ahead and argue, but it won't be with me. I am sick and tired of having to explain the same thing to you over and over, and I have far better things to do with my time ... "Esmeralda, yer my favorite mystic. Howzabout comin' over to my place tonight and I'll let you read my mind ..."

Daffy, it is. I could never understand Donald. Although as a kid, I did like Duck Tales.

So, I vote with Pasternakski.

Jason

BTW: What is a Pasternakski?

It's one of a pair of those long, wooden slats Dr. Zhivago used behind Lara's boat to skim across the water on Lake Varykino (summer only, of course).

The solitaire options sound good.
