Soulcatcher Posted January 29, 2003 Share Posted January 29, 2003 We have so many people showing up to our weekly CAV get togethers, that despite having 4 4x8 tables, we've been forced to play on the "standard" 4x4 playing surface. Using a 4x4 surface seems to do an injustice to the game. The CAVs with 60" of range can hit anything on the board, and the 48" can do almost as well. Additionally, the super-heavies don't pay any real penalty for being so big. Even 8" of move on a 4x4 board is still pretty decent. So what you wind up with is super-heavy cavs being underpriced relative to their effectiveness, and 60" range CAVs being overpriced because a 48" range CAV would do just about as well. Additionally, your deployment winds up covering most of the board because you're forced to take up so much room to keep your interval. We came up with a simple solution to solve all these problems: When playing on a 4x4 surface, cut all ranges, movement, and areas of effect in half. This effectively turns the surface into an 8x8 area. We found that once range and movement were really limiting factors, the game became much more tactical and enjoyable for everyone. Even if you're suspicious of this idea, I'd encourage you to at least try it out for one game and see if it doesn't improve your experience.
