If you mean Concave Dolphin could benefit from being run over by a tank, I think they already have.

Thought about it but I recall we had that discussion about letting others decide for themselves what they like, just a year ago. So I personally limit stickies to the winner of the most current battle contest.

I realize this is a few years old, but if possible I'd like to try and revive this topic, and add my own character to the mix. :studgod:

Hmmmm did not  occur to me to check the other 40 some pages of the thread. Hmm. Anyway, if anyone is doing an RPG, hit me up. :studgod:

This battle looks on par with ZZD and other epics. Still, there's one thing regarding the rules I'd like to whine about.

If CC weapons damage here is handled like in BW2010, the Damage stat seems somewhat underdeveloped. First of all, plain +1, +2, and +3 bonuses are in some ways more reliable than more randomized +1d6. Also, melee characters may very well become overpowered by investing in both Skill and Damage stats. The Skill stat already improves your effectiveness with CC weapons, and adding even more damage makes CC oriented builds seem ridiculously strong. For ranged characters, on the other hand, adding Damage to your firearms feels out of place, it's more fitting for a ranged weapon to receive such bonuses via weapon upgrades rather than character leveling up. But then again, should Damage stat affect only Close Combat attacks, it becomes really narrow-focused.

IMO, the Damage stat could be replaced with perks that are tied directly to hero's weapons or specialties. For example, during Level Up, if a player wants to get one perk, they may choose a ranged combat perk if they have a ranged weapon, a close combat perk if they have a CC weapon, a defense perk or a specialty perk, be it bonuses to Compensating, Stealth, Tracking, Pathfinding and so on.

Other than that, this ruleset is pretty great. Hope you'll return and finish this playtest, it's a great read.

Generally, CC has more raw power than range because range always has the advantage of not needing to cover as much ground in order to get attacks in.  Plus, games that become too shooty tend to be a little less interesting in general since people would rather hide behind cover and hold their sight lines rather than charge the enemy for death and glory.  When more actions are taking place on the battlefield, the players become engaged more and have more fun as a result.
