6'x5' tables using cm scale and fixed edge (a "combat box" engagement).
Deployment was starting speed of 6-12, alternating deployment along
appropriate table edge (usually a 6" section of table).
The scenario I played against him (as the "gumby" due to odd player
was a basic meeting engagement - deploy opposite edges and shoot away.
On the table size used, inches is too close contact for good
you need at least 12'x10' (144x120 MU) to allow all fleet types
to use their equipment.
If your "combat box" is too small, fleets like Phalon and FSE seem
overpowered, as the targets have no room to evade ordinance. If it gets
big, you can't reach the middle and high thrust fleets (such as Kra'vak)
control the engagement ranges too much.
