Hi, Folks,
I scraped this rule for ease of play, once I switched to FTFB. (I play
a lot of new players, I have enough to teach them.) It was more hassle
it was worth in FTFB, IMHO. It made sense in the old rules. Granted with
standard ships, you were limited to couple of 1 and 2 you were rarely
win a
battle with that. Compare what the frontage firepower of most ships it
wasn't a big difference from being disarmed. I know, the rules lawyers
design a ship that would upset this apple cart. They can do that with
rule. ( I am firing my arc mount class-3) With advanced drives of the KR
SV, it would too difficult to rule about it.
Just my unwarranted opinion.
