It was my first use of Kra'Vak, and we both thought prior to the battle
the Kra'Vak would win. A change of tactics next time i think.

True, the KV are not paying for screens. Against any other opponent at
the Sa'Vasku would have to use power allocation for defence to power up
screen nodes. With no requirement against the KV, it means simply more
allocated to weapons (that is what happened anyway). True, the node mass
wasted, but the power they require certainly isn't!

Never used the monstrosities of old, although i did face them and won
three times (equal points). Admittedly, casually announcing huge chunks
damage when i managed to get the K-guns on target made me smile! I'm not
giving up on the Kra'Vak. No way! One battle doesn't decide it for me
easily. :)
