  1. Just a random thought that occurred to me due to the immobilized crazy koala thread but does E/M disable perimeter weapons and motorcycles? For example: would Yojimbo running over an e/Mauler immobilize his bike and disable his koalas? I would imagine the bike would be disabled as would the koalas if they were hit by the template but I could also see his being disabled deactivating the koalas.
  2. Huzzah! I am not the only one hyping up the Uragan anymore! Honestly one of my favorite units which finds it's way into nearly every list. It's a surprisingly effective anti-link weapon as well since opponents are less likely to be cautious about their placement due to unfamiliarity. Nothing more hilarious then four out of five link members are blown up while running between buildings.
  3. It seems like the Ariadna boards have become a little quiet so lets get a new conversation started. Here is the question I pose to my comrades: Which unit or units has been the mostly pleasantly surprising to use? For me it has been the e/Mauler Scout since its a not commonly seen or expected loadout but nothing is as pleasing as freezing an entire Brigada link all at once thinking they would just tank an antipersonnel mine. Also she has been quite useful with the bonuses this season to Elite troops either being able to kidnap the HVT or get an ADHL in Hunting Party.

    @zagdag Welcome to the ranks Comrade! That is an excellent use for Voronin that I often forget to do, thank you I agree that he himself does not do too much, though that Assault Pistol comes in handy for pesky AD troops. Having that extra order is incredibly handy though because it makes it easier to build balanced combat groups. I don't like focusing everything in one combat group getting the job done because then I can get crippled if I go first. I'll have to give the Kazak sniper idea a shot at some point, I currently use the Uragan for that role. People tend to get overconfident against that guy since he has terrible rangebands and BS. It's hilarious though when it takes out most of a link team in ARO because they forget that a template does not get cancelled out in FtF but goes down regardless. So while the leader is probably safe, his friends are not.

    So I feel this thread needs a bump mainly for all of those Ariadna players who have not accepted Rodina as the true path yet to see the light. Also I would like some thoughts on lists I'm testing for an upcoming tournament, both have Voronin because I have seriously fallen in love with that profile since Wotan. The missions are Safe Area, Frontline, Supplies, Acquisition, and Firefight (not necessarily in that order). Also the tournament organizers are incentivizing TAGs by offering a special trophy to the player who kills (outright, unconscious does not count) the most enemy troops with a TAG. Mormaers count for this as well (but not Vet Kazaks :() Given this I am expecting to face a TAG in every round.

  6. I agree with Mahtamori about the dead subject no longer being hunted down. Considering that the goal of this mission is to capture targets for later interrogation, as implied by the focus on non-lethal force, a corpse only divulges so much information
  7. Since unit classification is now more important this season for missions like Hunting Party and it's in the database Army references already, would it be possible to have that information on the printouts? Edit: and of course I just noticed IJW suggested this already. Really should have scrolled up more
  8. I remember doing research like this a few years ago, the numbers @TheRedZealot references are not too dissimilar from costs in the US. Commercial real estate is bloody expensive in areas with high traffic. It's why you find so many LFGS in strip malls because the rent tends to be cheaper but they tend to be smaller. For reference, here are some numbers I pulled for lease prices for Iowa City, IA, New York City, and Kansas City, MO: Iowa City $8.7-30 per square foot per year (all numbers presented use this model) average appears to be $17 NYC $50-100 Kansas City, MO $15 Quick glance shows the cheaper locations tend to be on the outskirts or less than desirable areas. To check the numbers yourself here is the site I used, obviously not definitive but helps to get an idea.These leases also likely do not include utility costs and other business expenses. http://www.loopnet.com/
  9. Well if they do plan to introduce a new alien faction they actually have one in the fluff already. If I remember correctly there is a kind of precursor race that left something called a Digestor (I think) on Paradiso. Could not the fighting activate some sort of gate that brings back this faction? Can anyone with the books shed some light on this for me?
  10. Ah thanks Solar, I knew Cho was in the UK but thought IJW was in the US. Was hoping to see a comparison of what it's like for stores in the two countries.
  11. @IJW Wartrader If I recall correctly don't you run a game store? Would you be able to share some details as to what interactions with a distributor or game company is like? Or maybe we could get @ChoKonnit to give us some insight from across the pond?
  12. One thing you should consider MoPaint is that CB could be sending their products in a timely manner but that does not guarantee reliable delivery time to the distributors. International shipping is a complex beast when we are talking larger scale shipments, much more complicated then an individual purchase. Not only does the shipment have to contend with customs for both countries but there could also be other unplanned for circumstances. For example, the recent terror attacks in Spain would naturally make customs there a little jumpy just in case while all the hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico would certainly impact commerce in that region if the distributor is located in that region. For one thing we have to consider how the products are shipped, are they sent by air or sea? Both bring their own complications and can only have so many guarantees. We have no real way of knowing how CB conducts their business with distributors or how the distributor then executes their side of the bargain. Now I will add that I have no practical experience with international shipping or mercantile distribution, I am a historian by training. These are merely the thoughts that immediately came to mind while reading these discussions. Can there be improvement? Certainly, but we have to recognize that any suggestions or ideas we present are merely guesses based off of what we individually consider common sense. If there is anything I have learned is that businesses are by and large not guided by common sense.

    Been awhile since people posted here, how are my Kazak comrades doing? I will say that Wotan really changed my mind about Voronin, I absolutely love that extra order now, and his assault pistol is handy for taking care of AD troops if no one else is on hand. While a Line Kazak is certainly cheaper, and you can protect him with a decoy, having the extra slot for another heavy hitter in the first combat group has been really nice. Anyone else having luck with some of the more underappreciated/underused units?
  14. I am actually not surprised the SMG is not shoulder mounted, wouldn't fit its primary purpose. Think of it like a tank where the sniper rifle is its main gun, the SMG is more meant for point defense like a coaxial or hull mounted machine gun. You would want it on a lower, more maneuverable platform to target fast targets while you can have a steadier platform for the larger caliber weapon. Besides this way he can swivel the primary weapon while staying in cover better. That is my two cents at least.
  15. I will have to experiment with concentrating orders more. Started doing the balanced approach to mess with my opponent when choosing what group to take orders away from. Forgot to mention that the list I was up against had two TR boys, four Magisters and a order sarge link led by Konstantinos. @Eciu while I agree that Uxia and Chasseurs are awesome, they are a little too Scottish/French for me I will admit though, during my stint with MRRF I liked the Chasseurs but I always missed my Scouts. Give me a Scout minelayer of some kind and I will be overjoyed.
