POLL Equal Points Games?

Postby Chilledenuff » Thu Jun 20, 2013 11:02 am

The next rule I'm putting out to everyone taking part in the campaign would you prefer games to be of equal points values? As of game 2 there will be disparity between casts. It means that people with high cast ratings get to choose what they can take which is a real benefit, but means that people with small casts don't get disheartened by facing a (eg) 300 rating cast with 150 ratings.
Conversely we could play full casts at each other. I can't see any real benefit to games like this though,

Equal play please, unless a scenario calls for something else. Should cut the chance of someone losing their early games heavily from dropping out.

I think that makes sense..

However, I think scenarios should be declared in advance so that those with higher total ratings can choose from their overall cast, this would reward the players who have larger casts a little, but not be too unbalanced.

Stickied and retitled slightly, to make it easier to spot.

Yes unless there's a significant terrain or objective difficulty that'd alter the relative balance.
