  1. If you're interested in league play for Conquest Game night Gurus (on Thursday) already has a league going on Thursdays at Denny's in Edmond. I'm also looking into running monthly tournaments on Wednesdays at Little Shoppe of Games (in addition to our casual play nights).
  2. I didn't know you were taking votes for the next app! Is there an official place to vote? I would like to see a Black Crusade app!
  3. You could build a tournament legal deck with just a single core of Conquest. In fact, several people had to do exactly that for Gencon. Also, the only faction combination that wasn't legal size with 1 copy of each neutral was Ork with Chaos allies. Every other combination of factions are either 50 or 51 card decks if you take 1x of each neutral and all copies of non-loyal cards. Any faction can make a legal deck in Conquest with 1 core if you have access to all the neutrals for the deck.
  4. Then everyone would complain that they have to buy two different cores in order to have a "complete" game. In other words, it wouldn't fix the "problem".
  5. I guess I need to try and check these forums more often! We definitely have a few players in the OKC/Edmond area. I'm trying to build up a group for Conquest on Wednesday nights (4:30 - 9:00) at Little Shoppe of Games in OKC (NW 50th and Western). On Thursdays there is a group that meets at the Denny's in Edmond (the one on 2nd street). We have two players there as well. I'll definitely be sure to E-mail this to you as well!
  6. I mean Windows on a PC, not a phone or tablet. I want this app on my computer, not my Smartphone. I like the idea. We'll have to figure out how we can put the app into a windows application, which might be a bit tricky (because the framework we use is made primarily for mobile devices), but it should be doable. Another problem will be the distribution system, which is handled by Apple and Google on mobile devices. But for a native program, we will have to put a store up, handle credit card transactions etc.. We are a very small team, so it might take a while, but we will give it a try. If you put the app in the Windows store it would handle all of this for you. You can even make it a universal app so it would hit all three, desktops, tablets and phones. My vote would be for an app in the Windows store, I would definitely use it on my Surface Pro 3.
  7. A single Corvette and Nebulon? That sounds like the learn to play game or a 180 point game. In which case the biggest map would have been 3x4. At 300 points however, a 3x4 would cause the rebel fleet some significant issues and would make the game fun for only half the participants. I didn't say a single corvette and Nebulon. A single Frigate and Corvette is what I had, as well as 100 points worth of squadrons.
  8. As I've said, I've only played the one game, but when I played half of the map wasn't used at all. With 300 points you're really only oging to have 2-4 ships and some squadrons. That doesn't really feel like it's enough to cover that much area. For example, I deployed first in my game and put my Frigate and squadrons on one side of the area and my corvette on the other. My opponent deployed both ships and all squadrons on the same side as my frigate (the ship they made worth double points). The only thing my corvette did, was move into that same half of the map as everyone else and was useless for several turns as it moved that way. So, really all of the action took place in a 3x3 area and anything outside that area ended up being useless for awhile. I'm still going to try several more games on a 3x6 before making my final judgement, but right now I don't see any reason for an area that large for 300 points.
  9. Honestly, I played my first 300 point game yesterday on a 3'x6' play area, and the play area felt too big. The objective we got was all about killing ships, so maybe objectives with objective markers that you need to get will make better use of the area, but as far as my first impression of a 300 pt game goes, I would say that a 3x3 or 3x4 would work fine for 300 points.
  10. Windows 10 is supposed to release this summer, so it shouldn't be too long.
  11. This is how I have always interpreted the rule. I am fairly certain it isn't meant to prevent you from using new models, just not more than is offered in the box. I intend on playing this way as well.
  12. That's possible. I'm actually pretty new to the DH2E forums in general. I've lurked a bit, maybe posted once or twice awhile ago when it first came out.
  13. @cps thanks for sticking up for me, I don't know what DeathByGrotz problem is. Since he's apparently ignoring me now I suppose any hope of "constructive dialog" is lost. That's funny considering how this conversation has gone so far. I give actual ideas on how to fix the problem you post, and you do nothing but insult me. Based upon what I've seen so far, you're the one not interested in constructive dialog. Once you calm down and want to actually have a conversation, feel free to respond to my original post. I'll be waiting patiently.
  14. If a player isn't having fun, let him make a new one. It really isn't as difficult as you're making it out to be. You could also try and set up some challenges that let them use their one trick which would, probably, increase their enjoyment of the game. Declining someone's character because you don't like it? I'm glad that I don't have you as a GM. My players can make whatever character they want and even players who make one trick ponies tend to have fun. In the rare instance that someone isn't having fun with their character or they are really just tired of their character, I let them make a new one. And I'm glad you're not one of my players. With lines like that, kindly go **** yourself. Thank you. So, instead of actually addressing my point, you decide to insult me, real mature. Obviously you have no interest in a real conversation, so have fun preventing your players from playing the characters that they want to play. I'll continue letting mine play what they want instead of limiting them to only characters that I approve of. I was not insulting you or using the basics of GMing as a "shield". I gave you a solution to the problem that you posted.
