NEC 3-1 is up, ch#4617097. The map name is ‘NeverEnding3’.
For the rules, see Ramcat’s topic:
The map has supply limits, which I hope is fun…all cruiser weapons are limited to 30, all frigate weapons 50. Engines are required, but I don’t see any point in setting an arbitrary minimum speed.
I also don’t see much point in banning corner deployments, but I think it’s totally fair for someone fighting a corner deployed fleet to reposition their own fleet in response (as long as the repositioning player’s ships’ positions in relation to each other remain 100% identical).
Anyway, it’ll be interesting to see how this one goes. Judging by the fact that you don’t see many challenges with Supply Limits it seems that they aren’t to many players’ tastes. Personally, I think they can add an extra level of challenge to the fleet building process.
